Once again my account is locked on one of my computers. It says the email was returned but there was no email sent to the address. Oddly, the account is locked on one machine, the one that has been logged on the longest, but my other three machines have no trouble connecting and syncing. This seems to have happened after firefox updated itself (even though I had it set not to. It also removed all the settings I had spent a considerable amount of time customizing)

After migration my user directory to a different partition, I've lost all the items in my history menu and my places.sqlite file is no longer updating. However I can see in my address bar that all my regular suggestions and recommendations are still there, still auto-completing as they did before and when I visit a site, its visit count is properly bloated. I'm not sure if this is due to account sync but I've disconnected it now. How can I reconcile my files and repopulate my history menu so I can properly search it?

I had this problem 2 years ago and somebody helped me fix it as follows:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. (2) In the search box above the list, type or paste URLB and pause while the list is filtered (3) Double-click the browser.urlbar.autocomplete.enabled preference to switch the value from true to false

HOWEVER --- I don't seem to have browser.urlbar.autocomplete.enabled in my new version 74.0. What happened to it? Does it have a new name now?

Note that I tried in Options / Preferences / Search

    I unchecked "Show search suggestions in location bar results

In Options / Preferences / Privacy

   I uncheck each of the boxes in the Location Bar section (History, Bookmarks, Open tabs).

Typing the problem in the quote marks in the search box yields over 400 identical questions. So obviously this is a known problem with FF, and hopefully with Mozilla.

With me it happens on Facebook. Clicking "wait" basically does nothing, clicking "stop it" it basically stops the page from loading, so you can't post a message or have any interaction with the site whatsoever.

All along I'm watching the CPU at a constant 50%-60%, and memory for one tab of FB going up steadily from 400 MB to 1.2 GB (almost like a memory leak).

Now, my laptop has really limited specs, 3 GB RAM, Win 7, 10 years old. So I thought the laptop is probably to blame. Till I did the following experiment: Let's try Edge, with the exact same tabs, exact same sites.

So, one tab of the same FB page + one tab of Yahoo Mail -> FF: 60% of CPU, 1.5 GB of memory (and counting). Edge: 10%-15% of CPU, 500-600 MB of memory, and FB smooth as silk.

Any suggestions/solutions are welcome.

Hi,

I have a bit of an odd one. I have Firefox installed and Debian OS. For the last two or three weeks I haven't been able to access netflix.com, returns "Server not found" only on the firefox browser. Trying another browser and I can get to the site without issue. Any other site I firefox can access without issue. Same issue in a Private window. I have two debian PC's, both do the same thing. Any other windows, android phone is ok ( using firefox ).

If I connect to my vpn provider on the problem PC's, firefox can access netflix.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks,

New tab displays absolutely zero content, no top sites, no settings wheel. I went to "about:config" and I saw some false values under "browser.newtabpage". I changed them to true. See attached. Still that didn't work. Notice there is a curious "browser.newtabpage.blocked" string (mercy!)

Never had this problem before with any other version. I see some people had the same problem with v. 60.

Thank you for any suggestions.

I am developing some html and javascript applications. During testing I use the windows.alert box to show some innerHTML values. This worked fine, until after a while, the Alert box window size changes to a small window, showing only the horizontal slider.

I have restarted the browser, but that didn't change anything.

What can I do to have the full Alert window back?

Thanks for your help, Jan

(sorry for my english) I have FF version 45 with places.sqlite (file size ~92mb). When FF had refreshed to version 60, file places.sqlite is auto converted to ~56mb, but it opens normaly in FF 60. When I open this (converted places.sqlite) in old FF45 i see empty history window. I think may be file places.sqlite has new format in FF60. How can I open this file in old FF45 browser or how can I convert it back to old ff45 sqlite format?

Hey,

since a few months now, firefox is bugging me. But I don't want to go Chrome, so please please help me.

I have a sync account with bookmarks etc saved. But since the last update, firefox randomly freezes and after terminating it, often re-opens with prompt to create new User profile or exit. "New User Profile" clicked then means, that it is a blank browser, I have to sign in (it remembers the bookmarks), but all browser settings, add-ons etc need to be re-set.

Now, it is up to several times a day like this and I don't get, why. Anybody got an idea?

Cheers.

P.S. here my browser specifics: in troubleshooting data

I installed an older ESR version on a used laptop I got a few weeks ago. Everything's working fine, except the following issue with Bookmarks:

On my Bookmarks Library page I keep two columns, Name and Added (because on some folders I have many bookmarks and I track them by the date added). When I move any bookmarks to another folder, the "added" date becomes the date and time I moved them(!). Also, when I change the bookmark "name", it also changes the "added" to the date I changed it(!). Basically Added is acting like Last Modified.

Any ideas what's going on? I've never had this issue before.

My visual limitations make it difficult for me to look up, so the tabs at the bottom are very helpful. Why this effort to place them above? I use them a lot ... and now I have to strain my eyes. Sure you see perfectly well. You could think of people with poor eyesight and older people who are forced to bend their necks. They are two centimeters, yes, but at my age that breaks my neck. I used to use Firefox because I could have tabs down. Not now. It is not ergonomic. Is it time to abandon it? Think about the needs of others. Of all of them.

I have discovered a bug in the Sync. While starting a fresh copy of the browser and signing into the Sync, the content that was earlier saved to the Sync server is not fully restored.

As example, I use the "Preferences".

Some settings, like for example: "network prefernces", "search", etc., instead of beeing restored from the Sync server, are set to the default values and need to become changed manually into the prefered values.
