For some strange reason Firefox is not logging me into my favorite websites automatically any more. I have to manually log in every time. The websites' login pages are automatically filled when I move the cursor to the Username and Password fields, but I still have to click Log In. As soon as I log out and log in I am asked to "Sign In" again. I tried manually adding a website to the "Saved Logins" but that did not help. Using Windows 10 64bit.

Starting 24 hours ago, Firefox loads a blank Facebook page. Whether using my homepage bookmark or simply entering http://www.facebook.com, all I get is a blank page.

I've tried: Starting Firefox in safe mode, Clearing cache and cookies, Deleting/reinstalling Firefox, Restarting my router.

Firefox opens all other websites without issue. Chrome opens Facebook as expected. I'm using Firefox 81.0.2 (64-bit) Windows 10 Home 64-bit Version: 18363.1139

I've tried reading through the over 2,000 "suggested" help topics related to Facebook loading a blank page, but none of the ones I read address this issue. What am I missing?

Thank you in advance, Don

Today I got what I've seen described as the "Facebook White Screen of Death". I've tried: Reload Clear Facebook cookies (which implies logging back in) Clear site data Restart in Safe Mode None of these things make any difference. Still get only a white screen. Facebook works fine in the Chrome browser and in the Android app, so it must be a Firefox-specific issue, in my case. This is Firefox 81.0.2 under Ubuntu 20.04 The problem only started today. I've used Facebook with Firefox for years without problem.

Since a recent update (within the last couple weeks) I am no longer able to select file or folder locations. The file manager window doesn't show up, but the browser acts like it's open.

Screen recording of the issue can be found at the following link. It shows both upload and download attempts from a server on my local network. https://youtu.be/pDTZ3tisDqo

I have tried disabling the adblocker, but get the same result. this happens on all sites

I recieved the 81.0.2 update this morning, and the problem remains

HI. Firefox has been regularly crashing over the last month or two. Today it's crashed 4-5 times in 10 minutes. I tried sfc /scannow just now and there were no integrity violations. I've always submitted the crash report immediately after each event, however the last few were unsubmitted when I checked the log just now, so I've submitted them too. Firefox has always been updated to the latest version. Any ideas? Cheers Ian

For some time now, Firefox has been incorrectly identifying the type for a large percentage of JPG images, and saving them with the PNG suffix instead. Graphics programs cannot open such mislabelled files, requiring me to manually find and rename such files to give them the proper .JPG suffix to match their file type.

This is far beyond a minor issue, and needs to be addressed immediately. Please. Any suggestions on how to deal with this?

After an update done on October 13, the button that I clicked on to see the menu list that showed selections like "show all bookmarks' and "other bookmarks" to see my bookmarks suddenly disappeared. The button used to be on the top right hand corner of the page, to the left of the one that is titled 'view history, etc". Now I cannot find the bookmarks. Help. Thanks in advance.

PS - When I changed/edited the post, and redisplayed the question, it did not show my changes but when clicked the "edit this question" link, the edit box contained the changes. That is confusing.
