It used to be when I pressed Command-J (or selected Downloads from the Tools menu) a separate window would open showing the downloads history. But now it opens a new tab in the current window instead. How can I get it back to opening in its own window?

When I sign into some sites, where I have saved usernames and passwords, I get a choice of two user names that are exactly the same. When I choose one user name, the password associated with this name does not work. When I choose the second user name, the password associated with it does work.

I used to be able to go into Firefox options and remove the bad combination. I cannot find a way to do this anymore.

How do I remove the bad username/password from the options given me when I log into a website?

Firefox fails to display the web UI from my Canon printer properly. It should display as a GUI, but Firefox displays it as a text page. I tried "safe mode" but that did not change anything. The page displays properly in other browsers. Screen shot samples showing a page in Firefox and the same page in Edge is attached.

Firefox will not start. After double-clicking the icon, the cursor indicates the system is busy, but no icon appears on the taskbar and no window opens on screen. Task Manager shows a Firefox process running (not running before trying to start Firefox). With UAC activated, UAC window opens and asks whether to allow Firefox to make changes to the computer. After choosing Yes, the UAC window keeps opening and asking, over and over. Have reinstalled Firefox. Have tried to start Firefox in Safe Mode (both Shift>double-click and Run command). Have tried to start Profile Manager from Run command (firefox.exe -P and "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -P). Neither Firefox nor Profile Manager will open. Found a file in the Profiles folder called Parent.Lock and deleted it, with no apparent effect. Would like to know what might get Firefox to work.

Hi, on both my computers Facebook won't load in Firefox. It works fine with my wife's account in other browsers. It isn't the account as it still works from my phone. No matter how I go to FB, it will say at the bottom "...transferring data from", but then it will stop and screen just goes white. Sometimes it says, "Something went wrong". I have tried clearing all the date in Firefox and using CCleaner. I have tried starting in safe mode. I have tried completely uninstalling and reinstalling. Nothing works, but ever other page works just fine on both computers. Anything you have to suggest would be greatly appreciate it. It is, by far, my favorite browser and I hate to have to use another one just for FB. Thanks

before a recent upgrade to windows 10 pro, in Firefox I could always use the keyboard short cuts for copy and paste (crtl + c and crtl + v) within the browser. e.g highlight any text in browser page or address bar then crtl+c to copy then crtl + v paste that either in another tab or another application. Now I cannot. I can use the mouse right click (after highlighting) pull-down for copy and mouse right click pull-down for paste. How can this be fixed?

I've had this problem since Windows 10 updates from November 2019? When I boot up first thing in the morning and open Firefox I am connected to the net with my ISP but Firefox just hangs and in the bottom left corner says Looking up whatever I've clicked on say Gmail? Nothing happens. If I leave it a while say 2 or 3 minutes I am connected to Gmail and can read my emails. When I click on the link to say Facebook it just hangs again? It may or may not connect. When I open Google Chrome or Microsoft edge I am immediately connected to websites with no problem. I have researched this problem, switched off Microsoft Firewall, and added Firefox to my list in Malwarebytes Premium. It seems to run okay for a few day6s and then the problem returns? Everything okay this morning, all good. Closed Firefox, went had some lunch and when I opened again it refused to connect me to the net, but Google chrome and Edge does? I'm at my wits end now. It's clearly not a internet connection problem else I wouldn't be able to use Chrome or edge? This seems to be something in Firefox that is cutting me off. As I say if I click on a website within a minute or two it will connect me but only that site. Has anyone any idea what might be causing this. All Windows 10 and Malwarebytes software up to date as is Firefox, google chrome and edge. Hope someone can help!

Thanks.

I had this issue about a month ago, and looked into responses given to similar crashes. I tried disabling Hardware Acceleration, reinstalled Firefox, removed all add-ons and themes, then did a clean reinstall without any of my old user information, and checked my RAM for issues to no avail. I still had crashes in between each attempted fix. I updated Windows Defender and ran virus scans but nothing was wrong. None of the minor changes seemed to make a difference, but the crashes stopped so perhaps it was a culmination of everything, or I just got lucky.

Well last night the issues started again. I checked my OS installation for issues this time, and reinstalled Firefox (and immediately turned off hardware acceleration), but it hasn't helped. I don't want to erase my Firefox Profile and everything else again, so hopefully someone can tell me the 1 thing I need to do to prevent this from happening. I made sure to submit all the crash reports, but most of the ones from the past 24 hours appear to be missing now, so I'll include the IDs from the last three reports before it stopped previously, as well as the first three I ever sent, since I assume this is the same error.

If it helps, I'm running the latest version of Firefox with Windows 10 Pro on a Dell Optiplex 9020. It's an Intel icore i5-4590 3.3GHz CPU, and the GPU is Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 Zotac Mini 6G.

"Failed to initialize WebGL" in Firefox 73.0.1 when the same website was working in a previous version

Hello you fine folks!

I was using firefox with webGL until it upgraded to 73.0.1. Now all webGL content cannot be initialized. Specifically, Mapbox GL cannot initialize WebGL - I suspect someone has left a toggle in the code somewhere and it borked my workflow.

When I start firefox with all add-ons disabled I still get the same errors. I am 99% certain this has to do with the firefox update because it forced a restart and then various mapbox gl websites stopped working - I also confirmed it was not only mapbox gl by visiting the WebGL working site here: https://get.webgl.org/

https://docs.mapbox.com/mapbox-gl-js/example/simple-map/ gives me results in the attached images

I literally did not change a thing except upgrade the browser as was required.

M computer (still running W7) auto-updated FF to version 73.0.1 and two things happened. First, the tabs now cover the navigation bar, and second, the "plus" sign to the right of the tabs disappeared so I can't go to my pinned tabs or add a new tab.

Any help will be appreciated. I do have a userChrome file, but it was a copy and paste and I don't know how to adjust it to correct these things. Or if there's something in about:config? I just don't know what I would try to change.

I've been trying to take a screenshot, but can only grab the webpage and not the "frame" so I can't demonstrate what I'm talking about, but basically the tabs are sitting right on top of the navigation toolbar, obscuring it.

Thank you all for your help.
