Hi. So I have installed Firefox Nightly on my Windows laptop. The browser refuses to start up after restarting post update. I have already tried uninstalling and reinstalling the browser and even using a whole new profile to eliminate the obvious causes. The behaviour is not predictable. Sometimes it occurs after the first update post installation and sometimes later after 3-4 update cycles but it does happen for certain. If it is of importance, my laptop is locked down by my company's IT admin to prevent software installations. So when I have to install Nightly using the msi, he puts in his password. I am just wondering if that is what is messing with the Mozilla Maintenance Service trying to update the Nightly installation.

Please help. I was trying to download a file from MediaFire, and a popup appeared. I tried to close it, but another one opened up. They were all trying to install an extension and saying "update Firefox" I accidentally clicked on one. It didn't do anything, but panicking, I Alt + F4'd a bunch of times and when I saw that they kept reopening, I shut off the computer. I came back, and I have no new programs, extensions or suspicious looking processes. As I'm writing this, Windows Defender is running a full scan.

Am I infected?

I fought for over 3 hours to keep Firefox my browser. The second anther window would covered the section of the general settings Firefox was removed. It did not show what browser took its place, which is unusual. I had to go to my desktop to find out, and it was always Edge. Then once it became clear to whomever is monitoring me that desktop was helping me, It disappeared. Replaced by solid color. I could only watch YouTube videos with Firefox, but under it, instead of my desktop and icons were just solid colors. I arrange my window so I could see the moment my desktop returned but it never did. even the keyboard shortcuts did not worked. Call me crazy if you must, but I don't do drugs nor do I drink alcohol. Some of you, I hope, are familiar with Microsoft's intrusion in to our systems to "Improve the Windows for all". Equally, some of you would know that what that means is that Microsoft is using our systems as a Relay to get data in, get data out and get data through our systems. this improves their profits especial for steeling our bandwidth instead of having to pay like we do. I know that some of you are getting ready to have the guys come over and put me in a funny looking jacket. Hey I'm getting better in collecting evidence. In the beginning, journals, print screen shots, etc I considered proof. But then when I went to their folders they were gone. So I started using my cell to take photos and short videos of the strange happenings, documenting my plight. You see, only if my keystrokes were spied on would Microsoft know where to go and what to delete. I'm including a photo of another strange happening, where Microsoft uninvited stole about 6-7 GB of my storage for whatever reason. then that Ghost partition would move, appear and disappeared. I took 2 dozen photos of it. I was able to get in its Properties and verified it was a Microsoft created partition. When did it started that Microsoft can take even 1 byte of our storage. Does the stupid privacy agreement gives them such right? Nope I spend quite some time but nowhere does it say that for what ever reason Microsoft can steal chunks of our storage hard drives. That night I disabled my PC's WIFI, unplug it, remove the battery, Disabled the sync and turn it off. Then I did the same to my cell. Now this way Microsoft would not be able to access my system. Though I knew they left "tools in my system to prepared it for the data transferring, That night they would find the door closed. The next morning I turn my system on. Half way through boot up, I saw the same solid colors of the previous night. Without letting the boot up complete I forced a Hard Power off. I went to have my coffee, but I knew the watchers did not expect that, so they cast you wear on your arm and if you sneeze , Boom you have a mid size "Fat Boy" going off on your arm. were calling reinforcement or try to say Sorry, in their own way. After an hour I turned my system on waiting and watching for the solid colors. Nothing. My system boot up, my desktop was there, all my Apps and programs were where they're supposed to be. If there was a technical issue, there would have been some minor related issues left behind. But there were none. what Company on the planet can do that? Apple? Sure but Windows it's not their product, Elon Musk likes cars and space, Bezos (Amazon) loves retail, the Government? Sure but what for? Oh, yeah, I do have a photo of me and my wife in Hiroshima, Japan from July, 2005. It was Microsoft They had the means, the know how, and Opportunity. The pictures am sending you are in HD(large files) and I hope this program will let me send you at least one of them. I have about 2 dozen. I am so sorry for such long explanation but without it you would think that I lost my "Portofolio". You probably think that anyway. I don't blame you Thank you with all my heart. (Now I'm going to connect my cell and my P C and pick that picture. If you want more... Please, just whispered...) The Photo is too large. I'm going to zip it.

For days I was noticing that, after exiting sleep mode for at least a couple hours, Firefox would open up with the spinning wheel and would be completely frozen. Frequently I'd have to reboot and re-open in Safe Mode, because it wouldn't force quit. Then I'd disable the plugins when I had it open. But eventually I had to re-activate this plugin in order to stream content. I don't know 100% if this is causing the problem. Is anyone else having issues with this plugin and if so, is there a simple way to fix/debug?

Why is Firefox blocking Flickr and Tumblr without my permission.

I reinstalled Google Chrome as a proxy and then was able to login but a day later I was blocked again since Firefox is the default browser on my PC. Frustrating to say the least. Firefox does not have carte blanche authority to block sites without consulting these sites' customers first. The URL shield is grey and when I switch it off it has the line through it but still will not load.

Suggestions please?

Hi Everyone,

I run Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 and Firefox version 72.0.2, with DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials and search engine, and New Tab version 1 by Leigh Brenecki.

All works well, other than, having opened Firefox with the first "Tab" available, when I click the "+" sign for a New Tab, the error message "Blocked by Content Security Policy" and "An error occurred during a connection to duckduckgo.com" is displayed.

However, if I click on the Firefox Home Page "House" icon, or select any of my Bookmarks Toolbar icons, the message goes away and all works well again -- at least until I try opening another New Tab when the cycle starts again.

I realise this might be a "New Tab" or "DuckDuckGo" problem, and will seek their support accordingly - I just wondered if anyone on here had experienced the same?

Thank you,

Ian

I am using Firefox 87 with windows 10. Autofill passwords has always worked, suddenly it no long fills in the password. I have all the correct checks for autofill logon and autofill password, and for FF to ass for both of them on a new site. the information is properly listed in the program list.

I have tried everything i could think of , went to about;config made sure the settings were correct, asked help support page and forums. tried everything tried tried everything what was suggested to solve issue, BUT autofill password still does not work, i have thought of using another program manager, but not sure if that is a good idea thank you very much I sure could use some help with this............ Only other thing i can think is resetting FF but still not sure that would work either. Allen Millner allen-tina@comcast.net

Greetings: My computer was shutdown and restarted by a colleague and I seem to have lost my browsing history and all the open tabs from my last session are not retrievable — restore previous session is not available / appears grey'd out. I am on a macbook pro running Big Sur and I do have a time machine backup of that last session — can I get back those open tabs and browser history from my time machine? Can I do it a la carte or do I need to wipe my whole computer and restore from there? Thanks in advance for your thoughts, Sam
