I can find no recent documentation on command line options for the Firefox Browser. All of the information on this appears to be out of date or just does not work any more (in the latest version June 2021). Is there any documentation on this anywhere that is correct for the current version of the browser? I am specifically trying to run firefox with command line options on Windows 10 but I do not see that that should make any difference. The only option I can get to work is starting firefox with a specific URL; even then I have to change the browser settings to get that to open a new window; because the browser settings override the command line option -new-window

I found some infos but I do not trust myself just deleting the files in question since they ared all over my system. The following I found per malwarebytes which found the pups every day up to now:

PUP.Optional.DefaultSearch is Malwarebytes’ detection name for a family of browser hijackers targeting Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer. Symptoms The browsers’ default search engine was changed to one that belonged to the threat-actors. I am german so probably I need your patience in helping me to clean my system resp. Mozilla.

Firefox will start once (maybe) and then it makes no difference where I click from (tray, programs, desktop shortcut) Firefox refuses to boot up. I've tried re-installing multiple times. If I reboot, it will start. Also sometimes I will get a New tab but the page/URL never comes up. Firefox just hangs. I'm running Windows 11.

I've migrated to a new computer and installed the latest version of Firefox. I now get this persistent message when I try to access my email on Yahoo:

"The latest version of Yahoo Mail is not supported on your browser. Please use a supported browser below or use basic Mail". I then choose the basic Mail.

I'm using the latest version of Firefox and once I move around folders for a while, (Inbox, Trash, Sent), Yahoo remembers and gives me the latest version.

How can I make this permanent?

Firefox was one of the system updates I installed today on my Linux Mint 19.3. I updated it and discovered all history and bookmarks are gone. I have no Old Firefox Data folder. I tried about:profiles but the only other profile is the default Linux one. I tried to Restore from Import and Backup in Manage Bookmarks for several different dates, but only get "Unable to process the backup file" error. I also tried to choose several .json files from the STG-backups-FF-8x folders in Linux Downloads directory, but it doesn't seem to do anything. I've tried using Timeshift to restore from previous system dates, but it would only create Firefox folders with the same outcomes as above. I don't really care about history, but I have a lot of bookmarks that would be very difficult to recreate.

Thanks, in advance, for any help getting my bookmarks back!

A short while ago, Firefox was automatically updated to 99.0.1 on my iMac running Monterey 12.3.1. Suddenly, for no apparent reason, the search engine is stuck on Amazon with no other search engine options available. I normally use Google.

Even if I go into the Firefox settings to the "Search" panel, it is showing ONLY Amazon as the available option in the pull-down menu under "Default Search Engine". In the "Search Bar" section, I have it set to "Add search bar in tool bar". But even if I set it to "Use the address bar for search and navigation", and then switch it back to "Add search bar in tool bar", Amazon still remains the only available search engine.

As a last step, I installed the "Google Search" add-on by 3Indian to see if I could get back my Google search engine, but Google still doesn't show up as an option anywhere, and I am still stuck with just Amazon.

Is this a bug in the latest Firefox build? Did the developers forget to enable something when they did this build perhaps?

Firefox Stops Loading New Websites after Background Update

I usually have Firefox open for 8 hours a day (open Firefox in the morning and close it in the afternoon). About once a week I'll notice that at some point during the day Firefox will just stop loading new websites. Existing sites will continue to function, and requests to those existing domains work. But new sites, that I didn't already have open, won't load at all; the tab will just sit there, thinking indefinitely (no errors).

When it does this I will try microsoft.com or google.com to check and make sure it isn't just the site, but those won't load either. I'll try it with a Private Window as well to the same effect (private window has no extensions enabled). Chrome/Edge still work fine during this. In order to get Firefox working again, I have to close Firefox and then usually force quit the process instances (or wait a long time for it to reopen on its own). Once reopened everything is back to normal and all sites load as normal.

I think this happens when Firefox loads a new update in the background. I've noticed on more than one occasion this behavior has coincided with a new Firefox version. In fact it just did it again (prompting this post) and when I got Firefox back open again it had a new update tab displayed. So I'm fairly sure it is the background updates causing this.

This behavior has been happening for a very long time. At least 6 months. Across many Firefox updates.

I have a separate Firefox profile that I load using a separate shortcut (with the -P property). When this behavior happens it often impacts both instances of Firefox. Not sure if this bug is related to having multiple profiles or not.

I just used pacman to update to the latest Firefox, but the tab crashed each time I open a new web page ( I can open settings, about:xxx and etc... ). I tried Troubleshoot Firefox crashes and it did not crash in troubleshoot mode. Then I tried extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-extensions-themes-to-fix-problems but non of these options solved the problem. I disabled all extensions, themes and hardware acceleration, and it reported the same error.

Hello! I am in a work environment and I am trying to determine if there is something in our security systems that is preventing Firefox from running properly. Once Firefox is installed, it works the rest of the day with no issue but almost daily the morning after, it will start to open then instantly crash. When I check the crash logs, it shows in most of them: Modules - Filename: umppc14210.dll Version: 6.28.14210.0 Debug Identifier: B9143DE260194C88AB48EFD6782C9EAF1 Debug File Name: umppc.pdb Signed By: Microsoft Windows Hardware Compatibility Publisher

When using the dark theme from Firefox, Google searching seems to break completely as well as some pages will not load which may be related to this.

I have already tried uninstalling Firefox, deleting all of the folders, then reinstalling with a freshly downloaded installer (Even tried the beta one) with same results. It seems potentially MAYBE related to how long ago I closed Firefox before I shut down (Like Firefox is trying to save something to a secure location and times out, then it will work but if it hasn't timed out, then it crashes... or this is my guess)

The Signature seems to change randomly for the crash between crashes.

I really am tired of constantly reinstalling Firefox but I do not want to use Chrome or Edge unless websites require it.

Recently I was having trouble using Firefox with my web based Outlook email and asked Microsoft for support. In their reply they recommended that I reset Firefox.

I am reluctant to do so as I don't want to lose all my add ons which have accumulated over time as I am not sure about how to get them back if I lose them with a reset.

Is there a way to reset Firefox but keep my add ons etc?

I would appreciate your advice and thank you in anticipation.

Hi there, I'm having trouble opening firefox that suddenly didn't open after I've used it as usual. When I've closed it, I've put the macbook on sleep mode and then reopen it after 10 minutes and tried to open firefox as always. It didn't. I'm trying to figure it out and I've followed all the possible paths on Mozzilla's support and others blogs, but none of them worked out. I've tried also to uninstall and re install firefox from scratch, but nothing happens: I still get the message. At this point I don't care if I need a fresh start, I have a bookmark's backups so, how can I really uninstall Firefox and install it from the beginning? Is there a hidden folder I'm missing? Thank you in advance

I really try to find an answer online but looks like nobody find this to be an issue. Of course i have my password vault locked with a master password. But remembered logins on websites like Google and Facebook are secured by cookie login. Which not require my master password. So when someone use my computer unsolicited, this person gets instant access to my GMail/Facebook.

So how to protect per-logged in pages without resetting cookie data? Because i liked to benefit from instant access to al those website so i don't have to login everywhere any moment i start Firefox.

Hi,

I'm having a really strange problem.

I'm using Firefox on WIN 11 with my new LG laptop.

When I access a website's drop-down menu, it does not offer me options that I can make a selection.

I know that it's missing the 2 options - because when I try it on other PCs - it works fine. So the behaviour is different (and works) on other computers.

And the stranger thing is; it also does not offer the options when I tried it with Chrome and Edge.

I tried clearing the history and cache - and it still gives the same behaviour.

I called the Tech Support of the website - and they said it's clearly a problem with my specific PC. I would tend to agree with them - because I can access their site without any issues on other PCs.

I can't figure out what's in common amongst the 3 browsers I tried on this LG laptop. The only thing I found in common is this laptop!

Any ideas - any thing I can try next? Really driving me nuts...  :)

Recently I upgraded my Windows 10 to Windows 11 and since doing so, I've had consistent errors while browsing the web on Firefox. Most notably the "Humm. We're having trouble finding that site." error message.

For example, when visiting, say Verizon.com, the tab will display the aforementioned error to which I press Try Again and the website loads correctly every-time. No hiccups on the refresh.

I've tried the following:

  1. I've performed a completely clean uninstall of Firefox and then reinstall
  2. Cleared all browser history/cache
  3. Removed all extensions
  4. Disabled IPv6, HTTPS Over DNS, No Proxy
  5. Ran through Firefox's troubleshooting
  6. Used Firefox Troubleshooting Mode in the Browser
  7. Tested that the problem does not happen while using Edge

I've never had a single problem on Windows 10 with Firefox. Curious if others are experiencing the same issues and if there are any fixes. Nothing else on the PC has changed.

I use a website (u-bill.com) to access my Product and Account information for software I purchased. To find my purchase I need to enter my email address and 1 of 3 other items of information: Last 4 digits of CC; Order ID Nr; or Password. I am able to enter my email address but the text boxes for the other 3 do not appear. This only happens when I use Firefox as it is my preferred browser. I am able to enter the information in the form using Chrome. A search of possible fixes suggested disabling "hardware acceleration". I tried that and it did not work. Today was the first time I tried to access this information although I have had the account for 1 year so I do not know if Firefox ever was able to access it. I am using Firefox V 87.0 (64 Bit) and Windows 10. Here are two screen shots: #1 is the form using Firefox. #2 is the form using Chrome.
