I've updated FF from 48.0.2 to 49.0.2 and all my saved passwords are gone. The "Show passwords" button is blank. FF no longer asks to save my password. Did an uninstall, removed profile and reinstalled. No luck. Key3.db (and others) is not created. If I go back to 48.0.2, everything is fine.

I removed some adware-trojan with Windows Defender and Comodo firewall that had geekbuddy a program that malewarebytes found 254 adware entries from. So deleted the things and then could no longer connect to the internet. After fidling around and think the old xp winsock fix internet started working again. With explorer i can get online in 2 seconds.
Ones i try to start firefox then it wont run. I see it lower in the taskmanager between the processes firefox32bit, but it wont start to be on the top of task manager. 15-30 minutes after clicking open out of the blue it pops up if i'm lucky. And ones it started and i click open on my desktop icon then it immediately opens a new window with fox running fine.
Working on Win10 16 gb ram 8064p, so not an ancient slow computer fox ran like a ferarri before the trouble.
Taken actions: I uninstalled firefox, tried the reset and even tried to rename my profile to old 2. I also see a load of files in my firefox main folder. Tried to run Firefox portable but that wont run eighter. Yet that folder does not have all these api files in the main folder.
These are some of them, there are 40 of these api dll's in my folder api-ms-win-core-console-l1-1-0 api-ms-win-core-interlocked-l1-1-0 api-ms-win-core-processenvironment-l1-1-0
Install log shows win 8 while i am on win 10

Before i reinstalled firefox i updated it, did not work, uninstalled Java then installed jre-8u111-windows-x64 Don't see Java between plugins or extentions eighter after reinstall.
I copied my Morzilla folder that is inside roaming about a month ago when all worked fine. So as last try i can remove firefox again, go into roaming folder and delete the Morzilla folder in there and replace it with the one i backed up 1 month ago. That is what i always do if i get a new computer. This computer has been working fine incl firefox for over a year. And as i explained IExplorer still works fine. So i fear that the trojan messed up firefox. Or the trojan makes firefox think that i am on Win 8 instead of win 10 and that is why i have this trouble. Right click on my computer still shows that i work on Win 10 Pro 64 bit. So if i try to download firefox then it should recognise my used version since i can not chose which version to download Firefox Setup Stub 50.0.1 is what i get, and again FirefoxPortableLegacy36 also will not start. So in some way firefox seems to be blocked.
But figure that wont change anything cos if that would work then firefox portable should be able to run as well since that is 2 or more years old not including recent extentions or plugins. So i wont do that for now, hope someone here knows a solution. And yep i did close the non starting firefox32bit in my taskmanager before trying to run the portable version
Before i reinstalled firefox i saw a warning that there was a pref.js file in firefox that was not made by firefox. Guess that was because then i did not have java installed and that pref file had a java icon so bet it belonged to java. After re install of fox and java i don't see that in the error text file
Hope this is enough info to get it fixed

For quite a number of months Firefox continuously crashes or becomes unresponsive. Every time this occurs, Firefox will not close, but must be forced to close. At every crash or when forced to close, I get the Windows OS error message that a plug-in has stopped working and must close. That plug-in is always the Adobe Flash plug-in.
I am on the Firefox Beta channel and religiously apply all beta updates. I also religiously keep Adobe Flash updated. However, since I do not fully trust internet notices, I never allow a software vendor to automatically apply an update.
I should also add that this scenario happens many times during every day, except those days I am not using Firefox or do not access a website that invokes the Adobe Flash plug-in.
Can you shed any light on why the Adobe Flash plug-in quits working?
Thanks for your assistance. David R Breed

About "Be Nice" .. not so nice below, BUT I AM SIMPLY FED UP WITH FIREFOX SCREWUPS ... YES, SWITCHING TO GOOGLE CHROME, BUT I NEED THIS FIXED TO GET MY DATA BACK AND EXPORT :
Once again ... Firefox has destroyed my bookmarks, add-ons etc. when I "updated" Firefox ... Macbook Pro OS X
in the past, I have cumulatively taken hours to fix this -- on 4-5 occasions of the SAME PROBLEM (read: unfixed by Mozilla/Firefox)
a) why cant Firefox get their stuff together? .. WHY DOESN'T MOZILLA/FIREFOX FIX THIS !!!!
b) do they think my time is free? how can they, getting paid for their software development, expect me to lose money away from my business every time I "upgrade" ... so presumptious, so offensive, so oblivious to its "clients"
c) I don't know of any ... any ... any .... any software developer that requires a user to fix it's software -- again sometimes taking hours, including trying to find Help like this Mozillla user "support" input -- after an "upgrade" ... simply unbelieveable, simply UNACCEPTABLE ... TO YOU FIREFOX PEOPLE OR ITS REPS ... WILL YOU PLEASE FIX THIS ISSUE AND GET WITH THE 21ST CENTURY? ....
d) WHERE IS THE “SUPPORT"? .. where is the IN PERSON support that is going to fix my computer after screwing up my long input data gathering with their so-called "upgrade" ???? Two things are for sure: 1) it's gonna get fixed and 2) I'm certainly not going to spend any more of my own time and lose money from my business to fix Firefox's programming screwups. DON’T KNOW OF ANY … ANY … ANY … ANY company that does not have IN-PERSON SUPPORT … software and its functions are complex .. they need to be supported through interpersonal interaction … every other company in the world knows this … why not Mozilla???? I just don’t get it.
e) For past and present, even this "help" note, where do I invoice Mozilla for my time lost? ... where headquarters? .. accounts payable?/ I assume one of the non-Mozilla, non-person reps knows the answer to this ... surely they don't expect me to lose money by way of their "upgraded" product.
f) As one of you reps sugggested last time this happened : "well you chose Firefox, ... if u don't like problems, go use another browser" ... gee, that's good customer support ... our product sucks so use another -- geez.
g) Indeed I now intend to use another, but I will first be satisfied by Mozilla/Firefox's restoration of my computer, cumulative time lost and literal restoration of data exactly as was before the "update", and the payment by Mozilla for all my time in trying to remediate this and if any data lost, the historical time used to cumulate and enter such data.
If anyone out there in the GREAT MOZILLA/FIREFOX ABYSS knows anything about their products and their continuing failures, please respond to my questions above.
I expect someone at Mozilla or a rep thereof to, for once, BE ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR FAULTY PRODUCTS AND CUMULATIVE STRESS BURDEN AND MONEY LOST BY CUSTOMERS.
I AM LOSING MONEY AS I SPEAK, AS I DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO MY BOOKMARKS WHICH I NEED AT-THE-READY WHEN WORKING ... SO … SOMEBODY, SOMEWHERE, FIX THIS NOW!! _________ Again, not so nice, but perhaps a reader can understand my ongoing frustrations. NOTHING PERSONAL TO ANY INDIVIDUAL PERSON. I AM ADDRESSING ORGANIZATIONAL ISSUES.

Firefox downloads via a shortcut on our intranet page an excel file in stead of opening it straight away.

If I click the shortcut, I can choose to open it directly or to download it. I choose open in with excel (2013) but before doing that, the file download first and then opens in excel. If I refresh firefox, the problem is solved but after one session, the problem occurs again. Other times, it last for a week or serveral weeks and then occurs again. Some pc's have this problem, others don't. All have the latest updates of firefox / windows... There's no logic explanation, it occors with windows 7 - 10 thanks in advance...

I am about at wits end. I have been trying for about a month to try to get auto-fill forms to work. I worked fine until about a month ago and it quit working. I tried the new and updated version with same results ZIP-ZERO. I am pretty much computer illiterate, and the solutions (directions supplied) might as well be blueprints for a nuclear bomb. I wouldn't understand that either. I did a google search and found a couple of little programs a. Dashlane b. Roboform that have you-tube instructions. My question is will either one of these work with firefox.

I rebooted my computer last night, when I opened firefox afterwards, it just hangs. I cannot open a web page, I cannot open options, my book marks do not show up until I deselect the option to show, then enable, but nothing loads. I cannot close firefox unless I go into task manager to end it. I have sent 2 bug reports under this email address. I cannot open in safe mode by holding shift and clicking but was able to under the ? menu. No change in safe mode, just continuously loads.
I.E. and all other internet based programs work just fine.
Windows 10 pro AMD 6300 6 core processor 16GB RAM 64 bit OS Norton 360 (have had on and not changed for years).
Let me know what other information could help.

I installed Firefox 50.0 with no add-ons or extensions. I've never had Firefox on this laptop. I didn't change any settings except to import my bookmarks/favorites from Internet Explorer.
I am using a Windows 10 Professional HP Envy laptop. I have a full-sized USB keyboard. Using Kaspersky Internet Security.
The problem I am having is that when Firefox is running, periodically my keyboard stops working on OTHER applications that are running.
How I recreate this is:
1. Restart Windows.
2. Launch an application. For example, in my scenario, it is any of a Remote Desktop session, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Outlook, and/or Skype.
All is working fine, keyboard-wise. And has always worked fine as far as I know. This includes the USB keyboard and the laptop keyboard.
3. Launch Firefox and visit, say, this page or GMail or any site really.
After a period of time, minutes or even up to an hour, suddenly any typing I perform in, say my Remote Desktop or in Word will just stop. For example, I type "the" and "the" doesn't enter in to Word or Remote Desktop or any other application that is running. All applications just stop accepting keyboard input. Any keys - letter or numbers or number pad numbers just don't register.
It will remain this way until the moment I close Firefox. The moment I do, all applications begin responding to keyboard input.
If I redo this scenario, it will occur again minutes or even an hour later.
Things I tried but didn't resolve this. I restarted my laptop before each attempt.
1. Searching here. 2. Reinstalling Firefox. 3. A new keyboard. 4. Use the laptop keyboard. 5. Visiting ONLY ONE page to see if it could be magically related to a specific web page, say GMail or a news site. 6. Searching the internet for "firefox keyboard stops working" which does have related hits with the most current that I've found being 2009. None of the things I found there or here seem to have helped.
The only thing that DID work was not using Firefox.
If I don't run Firefox the problem does not appear. The longest I've gone between restarts is 36 hours so I can't say "never", only that the problem hasn't appeared. I sometimes hibernate or sleep in those gaps. If I run Firefox, the problem will appear within one hour, which is what leads me to think the problem is somehow Firefox related.
Thank you in advance!

To show you, I've recorded a video of it:
It also happens if NoScript, my only extension, is disabled.

My routers web configuration page doesn't show certain text in Firefox, but displays fine in both IE and Chrome. Images attached showing an example of Firefox 50 with the "invisible" text, Firefox 50 with the "invisible" text highlighted, and IE 11 with it displaying correctly. I have already tried a completely clean install of both Firefox 50 x86 & x64 with no additional add-ons or extensions installed.
EDIT: The issue only exists on Firefox 49.0 and above. I tried 40.0 through 48.0.2 and the site displays fine. Tried 49.0 through 53.0a1 and the bug is present.

All information is lost. Was away from my computer for an hour and came back to firefox being FRESHLY installed. (noone home or has access to this computer.) Its screen asked if I wanted to import bookmarks from another browser. I DONT USE ANY OTHER. This is the THIRD time this has happened! Its lost everything. AGAIN. I may have to stop using Firefox and go to chrome. This is ridiculous. No other crash on my computer, no other updates, no changes at all, except this. If this isnt fixed, for the last time, Im leaving Mozilla.

I use windows 7 and for some reason Firefox 50.1.0 has stopped giving me the facility to click on a contact e-mail link in any web page so that microsoft outlook will open and allow me to use the e-mail link. IE11 has no issues with this but I'd rather use firefox which I have as default. Why will firefox no longer open outlook when I click on a link in a web page?

Hi, I'm running FF 50 portable and I'm having a few problems. When I uncheck update add-ons automatically through the add-ons page or in about config when I restart FF it keeps re-enabling. Also when I restart, my yahoo homepage is bringing up a version that looks like it may have been from a few hours ago because emails that I've deleted are back. I've started FF without add-ons enabled and I get all the same problems. Another thing I noticed is I'm 99% sure that I've had update add-ons automatically selected before and whenever I restarted FF I never got a pop up saying that FF was trying to update the add-ons, which I'm getting now followed by a failed pop up. I really do not want to reset FF in any way, I've spent way too long getting it to the state I like it in.

That used to happen for years. About 2 months ago Firefox began opening with a 'restored' (i.e. not maximised) window. For a few days in the last fortnight it resumed opening maximised. Now it is opening with a 'restored' window which is wider and shorter than the size used previously.
