Our website, www.twindata.com , uses forms hosted by MyContactForm ( www.mycontactform.com ) and have been doing so since 2016.

While doing an update to a form today, I received a message from MyContactForm stating this form is not at the location(s) it was listed as being at when the form was created. The message is attached.

I tried another UNCHANGED form that's been working for years and the same/similar error results. I downgraded to Firefox v86 and it worked fine, as well did the updated form I was working with.

The form is near the bottom of the page at this URL: http://www.twindata.com/cli/AG6601.htm

Any help will be greatly appreciated. We depend on these forms for our business.

Problems with something simply not working the way it has for years has happened with previous Firefox version upgrades.

Hopefully I'll see some answers and suggestions. Thanks in advance.

Here's how I discovered this issue.

PayPal has a page on which the user selects a method for having money withdrawn from one's PayPal account to one's bank. I've found that this page's "Next" button works correctly (that is, it loads the page on which the user would then indicate the amount to be transferred) on Firefox 40.0.2, but it works incorrectly (that is, it only underlines the word "Next" and does not load a new page) on Firefox 52.9.0 and Firefox 87.0.2. (My internet access in each case is dialup.)

After pursuing various leads on the possible cause, it occurred to me to inspect the page source for the "withdraw" page for each of those versions of Firefox. And I discovered that the page source displayed by Firefox 40.0.2 contained content that was absent from the page source displayed by either of the other two Firefox versions. Some of this content appeared to define a function that returns content to the server when "Next" was clicked. If true, this could certainly account for why clicking the button didn't do what it should.

I noticed that the page source uses as many as 12 nested levels of <div>-</div> elements, which seems counter to the advice I read at an HTML standards page (at whatwg.org). But I don't know whether this could be a factor in the behavior I described.

I've copied the page source for each Firefox version and pasted them into text files, but I wasn't sure it would be appropriate to post them publicly. I would be glad to provide them offline.

Thanks for any help or suggestions.

When you are presented with a text field, sometimes when you type, a small list of words you entered previously will drop down. You can then select one of those previous words, or continue with what you were originally typing. This is the Autofill feature for Firefox.

Lately, it has been a pain. After an hour or so of use, the instant I click on a text field to type something (usually for searching), the autofill box would partially drop down, only for Firefox to completely hang up. Once you recover from the initial crash, the autofill bug would not appear until at least an hour later. I tried turning off Autofill, but it cost me access to my History, so I was forced to do a complete browser reset. This issue has been with me for about a couple of weeks, and I have no idea why it's doing this.

So, Firefox asking for my Primary password over and over but not accepting it when i enter it. When i also tried to follow the steps to remove/deactivate my Primary password by unchecking the "Use a Primary password" box, it again asks me to enter the Primary Password, but the box where i then enter it here wont let me enter my actual Primary password. I don't know if its because the password is too long or too many characters to enter there or what. but the "OK" box also remains greyed out and doesn't turn the bolder color where you would be able to click OK to remove your password.

I recently reloaded Windows 10 on my Microsoft Surface Pro 3, and reinstalled Firefox (V87.0, 64 bit). I've noticed now that web pages that have been opened will oftentimes not refresh after they have been open for a certain amount of time (TBD). As an example, if I edit an event in my Cozi Calandar page, the activity indicator will spin and spin and never comlete the change. I have to close the tab, open a new one, and load Cozi in that and then edit the event. Another indicator of this problem is that , when I open a new tab, the images associated with the Firefox Pocket recommended stories do not load (and I suspect the list of stories is not refreshed). If I close Firefox and restart it, that will sometimes resolve the problem, but not always. I have tried running Firefox in SafeMode, but that does not resolve the problem. I have also Refreshed my installation of Firefox.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

According to https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/8k3sq4/firefox_updated_to_6001_and_the_search_box_is_no/ there's something wrong with userchrome.css in the profile but that file should be patched if that's the case.

Why this hasn't been patched since it's introduction in version 60 is beyond me.

Once it was done it made me create an account to sync my bookmarks etc. Reluctantly I did, and once that was created i was about to import book marks, etc from other browsers but for some reason all of my passwords from Mozilla were gone and there is no way to "import" them. PLEASE help. I had 90% of my passwords saved into that password manager and no where else. It did create a "File" on my desktop called "old Firefox data" but there is nothing in there that I can visibly see that states passwords. HELP!!!

I tried my hardest to find what exactly is happening with Firefox, but have not found anything similar to my situation. When I try to open Firefox, it will pop up for a millisecond, then nothing happens. If I'm lucky, I might see a window open then immediately close. There is no error message or any sort of reason as to why this may be happening. This started when I tried to install this thing called Lively Wallpaper, here's the website: https://rocksdanister.github.io/lively/ Once I opened the file, Firefox closed and the problem started, I'm not certain if this thing is some sort of virus, but I don't believe it is.

When looking for a solution, I found something about changing my profile. However, I am unable to open the profile manager when I use the run dialogue box. The same thing happens: It will pop up for a millisecond, then close immediately. I don't think this is an issue of I'm not using the correct version of Firefox. I have been using the default version that Firefox leads me to for over a year, and have had no issues until now.

Since about a week or so ago late October or early November 2020, Gmail will not load in Firefox.

I began having this problem about a week ago. Sometime in October or early November of 2020. Gmail will not load in Firefox. Clearing cookies and all cache, works one time. Then it starts all over. Resting also works, just once. This is a giant PITA. I have to reset or clear the cache every time I use Firefox or Gmail won't load. It works fine on all other browsers. If I want to use Firefox for Gmail, I have to reset it or clear it every time I start Firefox. I have to go back to Chrome to use my Gmail.

My Mozilla occasionally crashes on various websites but this is rarely a big deal and is usually restored without further problem. However, when trying to access my online banking (Co-operative and Smile) it crashes repeatedly after a few seconds, making these sites unusable. Anyone got any ideas why this specific site is a problem and how to overcome it?

My cookie cache is erased every time firefox closes and I only have Ecosia as an Add on. My security setting was strict but I changed it to standard. This had no effect. I'm not very familiar with Linux so a simple explanation would be appreciated!

Thanks in advance

P.S; The crash reports fail to submit. I don't know if this is related.

Firefox freezes randomly when interacting with forms and opening new windows

So, for about a month or so now I have been experiencing random freezing in Firefox on my home PC running Windows 7 (I know it's outdated, it's by choice). I'm pretty certain it started after a specific update, but at this point can't tell which one.

Here's the behavior itself:

Firefox completely freezes and soon after the window turns white and a 'Firefox stopped responding' dialog pops up. After I close Firefox, I am able to restart it normally. However, at restart, it says 'Oops, there was a problem restoring your session' but then successfully restores the session if I click the button or select the option from the History menu (however, this does not always pop up - see the 'what I tried section').

When it happens:

1) When interacting with input forms such as login and password forms. Seemingly happens more often with forms that have previous input saved for them, but I'm not sure.

2) When opening new windows (notably NOT new tabs) such as when opening a private browsing window, bookmarks window, download history window or when using the picture-in-picture option on Youtube.

How frequently it happens:

The frequency appears to be random and not specific to any website. It most often seems to hapen after about an hour of browsing, but can also happen immediately at restart or go longer without freezing. Interestingly, disabling Ublock Origins seems to dramatically decrease the frequency of freezing, but does not eliminate it completely.

What I've tried so far:

1) Looking for problematic extensions. Running in safe mode seems to prevent the issue, so I started disabling extensions one by one. Ultimately though, even with all extensions disabled outside of safe mode, the issue persists. As noted above, it seems to freeze less often when Ublock Origins is disabled.

2) Tracking memory and CPU usage. Nothing abnormal there - I have 16 GB of memory and Firefox rarely goes over 5.

3) Refreshing Firefox. This did nothing except cause the 'Oops, there was a problem restoring your session' tab to first start appearing. Before the refresh that didn't used to happen at restart.

4) Disabling hardware acceleration. No effect.

5) Removing bookmarks. I had a very large number of bookmarks saved so I deleted a bunch of them. No effect.

6) Deleting the places database. No effect.

7) Deleting the session restore files. This has been the most interesting option. Deleting the session restore files DID stop the freezing... until it came back again in a couple of days. Interestingly, when it first came back it was not accompanied by the 'Oops, there was a problem restoring your session' message at first, but eventually that started appearing too. This gave me the thought today that perhaps this is caused by a website somehow 'corruping' the session data. I was going to delete the session restore files again and start looking for the offending website, but puzzlingly, this time deleting the files did not stop the freezing.
