I have had the same stupid problem for 3 years. I lose power to my MAC and I have to redo all the stuff on Firefox. I lose homepage, BookmarksI really want to speak to a voice on the phone so I can explain it but that is not an option on the website. I WANT TO SPEAK TO SOMEONE WHO CAN HELP ME!!!!! I have tried a couple of the self solutions and I have the same problem. I am about to just delete this POS and go back to POS Safari. Firefox works wonderful when it is up and running but if my machine loses power or I reboot, Firefox gets wrapped around the axel and I can't get my Bookmarks/favorites back. Also, LASTPASS used to have a small icon in the upper right part of my homepage......now that is gone. I hope to here back from you.

I have a firefox account for syncing my multiple computers and mobile devices. I purchased a new windows 10 laptop and installed firefox but it will not allow me to sign into my account. It says my password is wrong. I'm using the same password I used to log into this support site (from an older pc) so the password is valid. All other devices are syncing and signed in. How do I get this new installation of firefox to recognize my password?

Thanks, Mike

Hello, ever since updating Firefox to v85, it's been LOCKING UP every day, sometimes twice a day. Have not been able to figure what site of function is causing the problem.

Have bee watching memory usage in Win Task Manager, Resource Monitor and can see ONE thread of Ffx ramped up to 3 MB.

Firefox updates no longer trusted, will need to do a RESTORE POINT from now on.

Please comment, and where did my first support question go?

Thx,

Can anyonne help please?

Yahoo intruded and functions as default search, even though Google has been and is still designated as default in the settings. I removed Yahoo from the list of 1-click browsers, but that didn't affect its unwanted function as default search. This began out of the blue several days ago, and I have no idea how. I dislike Yahoo in general and have not been on that site. I'm getting really frustrated!

My dad did somethink with Avast antivirus(at least he said so) and after that we have no search engine available. If you try to type something in a serch bar you can only open direct links. Default search engine button in the settings does not respond and even following instructions on the site I can't add new search engines. Tried Google, YouTube and DuckDuckGo but to no avail. There is just no option to add new search engine.

P.S. Don't know how to reach russian-speaking support, so screenshots are in russian with some explanations on top.

Hi - I signed out of a different Firefox account and can't get back in, as the password I have isn't correct. If I change my password, I may lose my bookmarks, etc. I exported the bookmarks to html and also backed them up (json). If I change my password, will I be able to restore the bookmarks using one of those backups? I backed up "all bookmarks." Does that include the bookmarks toolbar and mobile bookmarks as well as the bookmarks menu and other bookmarks? Thank you in advance!

Not sure what happened or why, but almost all settings disappeared - logins, passwords, preferences for page size (+/-), etc. overnight after updating Win10.

I did not uninstall the update, which I think I will do after posting this.

How do I fix this?


I copied logins.json and key4.db from one day prior, - 2/6 - but the 2kb of data were not helpful.


I switched profiles on Friday (I think), after dealing with constant errors - a page is slowing down your browser, or a script is slowing down your browser. Firefox update was on Friday - 85.0.1. A damned mess, if you were to ASK ME.

Firefox Release 85.0.1, February 5, 2021 on Windows 10 computer

I uninstalled the Last Pass Add-in, cleared Cookies, and then downloaded and reinstalled the Last Pass add-in with the same result, yellow box for Last Pass, after I log-in. I received the following message after I tried to login: “We couldn't contact the server. Check your internet connection and try again”.

However, I am connected to the internet and if I try to connect to Last Pass outside of though the Firefox Add In, I do not get any error

If I click and delete the error message, the icon turns to red, which is normal.

Good day,

Everytime, since a few weeks, when I start a new session I have to accept cookies again with many websites. e.g. Google or De Telegraaf. Normally with the Telegraaf I have to log in just once, but since a few weeks I have to log in every time. In firefox settings I have "remember history" on.

Firefox Support: I am 80-years old, and use a land line. 360 894-6326. I do not have a cell phone. I have been using Firefox, and Aol for a good number of years. I do not use most bells and whistles or ‘Social Media’ accounts, and I cannot click a picture of a code from the screen. Recently, I purchased a new Laptop, which required using a Microsoft ‘Outlook Account’ the previous account Walter6326@Outlook.com ‘Password’ was not recognized, I tried to change it many times filling out the ‘form’ provided, which did not request simple information which could identify me, instead the ‘team’ said they would get back in 24-hours. They did, and indicated I didn’t provide enough information to identify me.

After a number of attempts in which ended up now creating: Butch6326@Outlook.com, I was able to get the other Laptop to work, except in using one then the other some of my destinations do not recognize the last password, and I have to have a code or some such sent to Aol.com to verify that I am me. I created yet another account with Webmail.fairpoint.net ‘Phillwa2@fairpoint.net’, however 'fix it' codes sent to that account do not get there. I have synced both computers with Firefox, and it appears that it is working. In this day and age it seems impossible to actually talk to a person in which such problems could be resolved in short order. I would appreciate some direction.
