Every time I launch the amazon.com website, it autofills the search box with "deskjet 2512 ink". It also autofills every time I refresh or click on any item on the page. It darkens the page, and I can't do anything until I go to the search box and delete it. Then it comes right back on the next amazon page change or refresh. The only way to keep it from doing this is is to set privacy to "Firefox will never remember history", but then the Last Pass extension requires a manual sign in.

This happens with Firefox 64.0.2, but has been happening with previous versions, and also with Edge and Chrome. Same problem with all the browsers. Even a fresh reinstall of Windows (three times!) hasn't solved the problem.

It's very annoying, to say the least! Any ideas?

Firefox automatically reverts the default search engine to Yahoo after every update. I would like to either know how I can prevent the browser from doing that or get Firefox to stop this from happening over and over by updating the application. I have to manually remove the default browser and select my chosen one after each update. It's getting a little bit ridiculous.

Links like https://youtu.be/S4fXBA2UOr0 doesn't open. Firefox opens the page with message: Connection doesn't secure. Certificate is unknown. But this is simple YouTube and the same links has no problems with opening in Chrome or IE-11 The problem is only in FF. I'm the author of YouTube channel that is why I want this kind of links to be opened in any browser. I have Firefox Quantum 64.0.2 64bit, Russian lang. Is it my computer's problem or it is common problem of all FF users? Do you have any recommendation what I can do?

Everything else is syncing just fine. Bookmarks and history work. However, the preferences and options from "Customize" section are not transferring. Is this a bug or is this working as intended?

I would be most disappointed if it was the latter. Today's expectation is that a login requirement will precede a seamless customer experience. In this case, that is the user interface.

If it's a bug, then the steps I've taken are thus:

- uninstall - clear the package cache - remove all files associated with Firefox - then perform system upgrade - re-install Firefox

Thanks guys!! :)

Hi FIrefox team, I have a Windows 10 display computer system that is switched on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It uses multiple Firefox windows to display charts and images, 10 windows in total.

Every morning, I come in to office and discover that most of the Firefox windows are displaying the "Gah! Something crashed." message. It gives a convenient blue button to reload all the tabs, but I would like to find out what is causing the crash and prevent crashes in the first place.

Here is a list of my submitted crash reports: bp-c5d9f2c2-5bc6-41de-bddd-7c0200190118 bp-bf25e5a0-cad1-4074-8ddf-929b10190118 bp-5674a715-89c3-4640-8047-73acb0190118 bp-442bc27e-1060-44e1-bb76-04aaa0190118 bp-20d258a7-7024-4598-871b-1462b0190118 bp-df21407f-8e9c-497f-a5da-1b3b40190118 bp-2a1bfd31-ba3b-4fa9-85dc-5b6330190118 bp-1c94d311-0d2c-40d1-b8d3-98ad40190118 bp-dad18dc2-80cd-4c09-911f-cfc2e0190118 bp-0b9f5eb9-9296-435a-a81e-4dca50190118 bp-8550c9ad-fc92-4fed-b18f-b08ef0190118 bp-b804dffd-357c-4cd0-8775-802240190118 bp-f0cbc689-173a-4985-9e2c-533b40190118 bp-53a5b4a9-cbaa-4acb-9e2d-5d3730190118 bp-444ace91-f119-4b07-abe3-52aa90190118 bp-91f59963-c384-40a8-bda0-3742d0190118 bp-ef79359b-d874-4fdc-a13f-2f8bc0190118 bp-41e45dec-df7e-426f-9ce5-79ede0190118 bp-0b6cb5b4-63ee-4961-a932-26d110190118 bp-8f1a7b0c-dae5-4267-a429-090cc0190118 bp-f926a9f2-c18b-498e-9124-c5d610190118 bp-8fdfd938-2455-4e35-a2ff-6fb390190118 bp-0d1d06d6-6b02-4120-993c-7855c0190118 bp-8216efb6-cfd6-4a3a-99a6-e906d0190118 bp-75055862-9253-4203-9540-4b56c0190118 bp-72d4461c-2dec-4b9a-aa77-886100190118 bp-0d595bae-c31e-43f4-8595-3628d0190118 bp-c0ad0570-4c66-4934-a3b8-10db00190118 bp-3d223716-1228-45f8-be6e-5e8d00190118 bp-2a0eeb33-7fd3-4bb9-9126-4ea230190118 bp-7645df77-c345-4125-962c-28bf30190118 bp-ee38c9ba-8af3-4ddb-b934-69ed00190118 bp-1fdb3c66-997d-4a09-9b8f-cb6b50190118 bp-d1b04b46-63ff-4a55-865a-35c8e0190118 bp-f0c7172e-0ae2-4b49-ba14-12e230190118 bp-829bd3f3-01a1-45bf-9be0-9511b0190118 bp-497479cc-613e-46c6-941a-27a400190118 bp-8f56cbd1-ad54-430e-b3de-76a3f0190118 bp-fc5b34f4-5d78-46a0-9117-fc5e80190118 bp-918b8676-4980-44a5-bba7-c60910190118 bp-0469f739-7f32-4438-9424-981350190118 bp-496588b4-2e69-4b07-b010-9b7090190118 bp-d05d2e63-cf38-47d9-b8f4-6c5bd0190118 bp-e540a4ed-25a2-491f-a100-cbef70190116 bp-5eca4c71-757f-486e-b341-110b20190109 bp-aaa90706-fc2d-44d4-8374-d82280181218 bp-b395dcab-4f78-4f05-b5ed-a0e4a0181213 bp-9b50ee2f-401b-4d5b-accf-578230181206

I have a baffling Firefox (ver 64.0.2 (64 bit) problem. The keyboard's behavior is erratic when using Firefox to read news. It occurs *almost always* when browsing Google News, and *sometimes* with NPR news, StatesReports, and possibly others. Those are the three I read regularly.

Today, the misbehavior on both of my Windows computers, in both safe and normal modes: when Google News is launched, the "Up", "Down", "Left", and "Right" arrow keys do nothing except move a cursor around within page elements; the "Page down" & "Page up", work correctly, but the "End" and "Home" keys do nothing. At other times, successive presses of the page down will work correctly a couple of times, and the next press will perform a page up and the following press results in a page down then the next press results in another page up. This loop continues. From that point pressing the end key or the home key does nothing. At other times, the keys perform as expected. At still other times the Down arrow performs END, and Up arrow performs HOME. The HOME and END KEYS seem to move the cursor left and right within the element which has the FOCUS.

The Chrome browser works fine.

I have two computers running Windows 7 Professional. My laptop is a Lenovo X220. My Desktop is a homebuilt PC based on a Gigabyte motherboard. The laptop is a refurb bought from Amazon in August 2016 and came with Windows 7 professional installed. The PC's Win 7 was installed from a system builder "Intended for Distribution with a refurbished PC" disc about 2 1/2 years ago (June 2016). Both machines have been running without any significant problems until several months ago. Now both have the same problem, while another pc running linux mint does not have the problem.

I have restarted Firefox with add-ons disabled and the problem persists, so I don't believe it is caused by any of the add-ons. I swapped out multiple keyboards, checked both machines for malware using Malwarebytes, restarted Firefox and rebooted the computers several times, and tried running without Microsoft Security Essentials; I decided the Firefox profiles must be the source of the problem, so on Jan 12, 2019 I completely uninstalled/reinstalled Firefox on the PC and it worked fine (keyboard problem gone) so I did the same thing on the laptop, and it also worked correctly. I figured the problem was gone. Then, four days later (the 16th) the problem restarted, on both machines.

I am wondering if there might be a problem with a Firefox or Windows update, since the keyboard issue occurred at roughly the same time on both machines. It seems odd that both computers worked correctly for four days and simultaneously the problem restarted. I certainly don't want to reinstall Windows just to see if that helps.

Any advice will be greatly be appreciated.

I click on the "Sign in to Sync" field, which shows the sign-in page, I sign in, and it returns me to the Notes bar where the field now reads "Reconnect to Sync", and after a while "Activate your Account". I also get a mail "New sign in to Sync". Did this several times, and on two different PC - a Laptop with Windows 10 and a desktop with Windows 7. My Android account has Notes connect to Sync without any issues. I tried the same with Noscript and ublock disabled. Thanks a lot for any pointers

For security purposes, EVERY time I start Firefox, the profile directory is wiped, and a very basic profile is restored from a backup (the most significant changes from the default being a prefs.js modified for enhanced security and privacy).

The downside of this is that every time I start Firefox, I have to go through the welcome screens. What option in prefs.js controls this (I will add that change to prefs.js in the empty profile)?

This is only happening in Firefox.

After i click to download something, there is like 50% chance of it starting at 100% ot like 1% and never moving. Canceling and refreshing can change the moment it starts, i mean like from 100% to 1 % to 10%. But it still does not move and there is no chance it actualy starts normaly by refreshing the download. I can still click on the download link and there is still chance of it actualy working but i literaly needed to click 30 times on one link for it to download. I recently started to copy links to explorer and downloading from there.

Also is it normal that if i click more than one link in like 2 seconds it only downloads one of them?

PS: I guess the image isn't uploading, i dont know why, i refreshed the site and the image is less than 1MB so,,,

Best regards

Running Mojave 10.14.2 About 1 week ago Firefox auto-updated to Quantum 64.0.2 and introduced a "virus" that displays a fake error message that says something about a problem with the "daisy-chain" on "my PC". The message persists about 30 seconds, then disappears. It always appears during startup from power-on or from sleep mode. It reappears about every 10 min during running, on the top level of the screen (hiding what's beneath). A screenshot doesn't show the message. So far I haven't seen any other changes in computer performance. I tried reloading Firefox from the Mozilla website, but the "virus" persists.

We use NetSuite at work. If I'm in a work order or sales order and I want to trace the lineage back to the opportunity, I'd open the work order, then the sales order, then the quote, and then the opportunity. I prefer to have them ordered though from opportunity > quote > sales order > work order > assembly.

If I could just set a default to open new related tabs to the left instead of the right, it'd eliminate the moving of a LOT of tabs all day long.
