Firefox updated on my work machine concurrent to a machine self-restart and VPN update. The VPN update bricked my access to shared drives for my work network so I assumed the issue lie somewhere with lack of internet access and inability to connect to said network. Now the VPN is up and running with normal file access restored, but all my FireFox info is gone. I see on my desktop a file called Old FireFox data and begin googling the recovery process. I generated a new profile in FireFox and copied over all files from the old profile to the new including key4.db and logins.json to no avail.

There are no passwords, no login info, no cookies, no bookmarks, nothing is left. Also, I cannot copy any of these files. I can only move them for some reason. I've tried to back up these files, but they are move-only somehow.

Any advice?

Hello! Our company has had this issue since May of 2020. out of 170 users, we will have 3 or 4 users per day crashing at random times. we cannot recreate the crashing on demand, its random times, random pcs. we are running the latest ESR version we do have a handful of PCs on the non ESR version also crashing. nothing in their extensions. we have tried running in safe mode and renaming the storage folder for some of the repeat users PCs but the crashing persists after a few days. we had all users refresh firefox but it will also happen again after a few days. we have tried setting a different home page for some users but they still get it. the only fix is to reinstall firefox and it will work fine for a few days but then will happen again. when they are in the crash cycle, nothing will get FF to open, only reinstall. FF is the default browser since some of our vendors require it. any help would be appreciated!

here are some of the users crash reports. I cant tell what is causing the crashes. we do have mcafee AV and have tested removing Endpoint security modules but still got crashing.

With concerns about supply chain security, I would like the ability to ensure that the file download matches a recognized checksum.

Downloading from: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/78.6.1/releasenotes/ yields checksum SHA256 55249C4861FE521CB32D72785481A146B64812AF2ECE7341FAAA5C79ABC0F395

This does not match any of the checksums available at: https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/78.6.1esr/

Best practice would be to publish the official checksum along with the release notes.

Is there another way to close the loop on this?

I wanted to ask whether I can still use Enhanced Tracking Protection while still using Facebook Container and Multi-Account Containers. It looks like the option is not showing up in the preferences. Does use of ETF undermine using the other two? Which one is better to use? I don't want to lose the function of Facebook Container to block Facebook trackers from all the websites, but I also want other websites to be kept in separate containers as well.

FF ESR 78.7.1 (32-bit) vs. FF 85.0.2 (64-bit) rejected by a site I need to use

The ESR release is apparently behind an update, likely security oriented (the site ESR is rejected by is a Bank). I've been told by the site that they test (essentially) Chrome...and go with THEIR updates, if it suits their purposes. They suggested blowing away the ESR history (...cookies and all of it) and restarting ESR. Afteer that didn't work, I'm presuming the fix the Bank wants is in FF 85.0.2 and not in 78.7.1 ESR. But, I'm guessing.

I realize ESR stages ESR releases to follow FF so to allow testing ahead of FF auto update migrations. It's one reason why I use ESR most of the time. But, I think it would help if we could have some way to associate ESR's release cycles (Versions) to FF (Versions) with dates and expected. Maybe it is somewhere.

Q. What is the relationship, if any, between the versions FF vs ESR? Is ESR 78.7.1 = FF 78.7.1 or what? Q. If not, what? Where/What is the relationship and is the timing set or variable on progressions of ESR?

Thx wgk

Tried refreshing my browser and trouble shooting but no luck.

I am on FF 78.7.1esr on windows 10 and since a few weeks the fonts on some websites look bad as shown in the uploaded images. Even the text box where I am typing in this question right now does not show a clear font. I have not installed any new FF extension recently but there have been windows updates.

I did find some rather old information about blurry fonts related to shockwave flash content and I disabled the option to "Block dangerous and intrusive Flash content" but this did not really solve the issue. (I still need flash for learning content so I did not uninstall it but created a mms.cfg file as recommended by adobe).

Have there been recent changes to FF font rendering? I did not see the problem before January 2021.

hi,

I have a new install of firefox (78.7.1esr) on a new Apple Mac (10.15.7 Catalina). I used sync to sync bookmarks from an ubuntu install (85.0.1) onto the Mac.

The bookmarks arrived. They are visible on the bookmarks toolbar, bookmarks menu, and bookmarks / show all bookmarks. I can add new bookmarks using drag and drop, or by the bookmarks menu options. These bookmarks can be seen in the Bookmarks / Show All Bookmarks menu. But they do not appear in the bookmarks toolbar. It's as if there are 2 sets both started from the same sync.

  • Bookmarks added by drag and drop visible through the toolbar
  • Those added with add bookmark or show all bookmarks within the toolbar folder do not appear on the toolbar.

I've now got what looks like 2 sets that are drifting out of sync on the same latptop.


thanks for any help.

Hello,

Is there any way of customising the menus (such as context/right-click menus)so that they do not display any kind of icons?

For example the burger menu has icons for "Print" and other items.

This is inconsistent with my desktop environment (GNOME) and all of my other desktop apps (which follow the default GTK settings that disable such icons)

Another minor thing is underlining certain characters in those menus (for keyboard shortcuts, I think), for some of the items. This is another inconsistency which is also disabled system-wide by default in GNOME.

Is there some way of disabling these? Maybe an about:settings config that I didn't find yet?
