So Firefox updated this morning and when I went to look for the Inspector under the Web Developer Tools, it is no longer there. I use this tool all the time and came to count on it. What are my options and is it still available?

Hi All -

I need to change my Primary email address to allow me to Sync. When I type in the Secondary email address a message comes up saying it can't be the same as the Primary address despite the Primary address displaying as a different address. No idea how to get out of the loop.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Ian.

I have two problems with Firefox 90.0.2 (64-bit).

1. Sometimes the program stops responding; sometimes it restarts on its own but sometimes I have to close it.

2. Sometimes when I switch from Firefox to another open program Firefox closes on its own.

Thanks.

Good day , For some unknown reason to me my HP printer will not connect to WI FI using Firefox but will connect if using Edge (which by the I hate and resist using at all costs) . I have tried trouble shooting to the best of my limited ability via HP and online , but to no avail. It was working with Firefox the last time I needed to use it, but not now. Hopefully someone can help me , but I have very limited computer skills and a lot of the short forms acronyms and computer gobbly gook baffle me . I ask that with any answer please .........KISS (keep it simple stupid) it . Please no one take offense to the term (KISS) , I did not come up with it , but it seems the simpleness has left the building these days.

Thank you Ken

When I launch Firefox, it refuses to open My Yahoo, which is the home page I have been using for many years. My.yahoo.com is still entered in Settings as my home page. Even if I type the URL into a new tab, it will not load. I have now switched to Edge as my default browser and it is working just fine. I would like to go back to Firefox, but there is no way I can do that if it wont even let my use my preferred home page. This is the second time I have presented this problem. So far - no response. I can be reached at ... @yahoo.com.

I have been using Firefox for as long as I can remember, and I have always used Yahoo as my home page. The newly updated Firefox refuses to load my.yahoo.com. Yes, I went to settings and checked to make sure the Yahoo URL is listed. I can even type the URL in a new tab and it refuses to load. Look like I will have to switch to Edge after all. It is working fine.

Firefox has blocked Acer MSN ca stating their certificate is no longer secure. I can get on the web through Google but not through my Acer computer's icon Acer MSN ca. Obviously something triggered Firefox to initiate the block and now I wish to find a simple way to have it again accept the MSN certificate without going through a lot of confusing processes. I could uninstall and then reinstall, but surely there is a better way.

I know this is an old issue. I'm getting it now, FF 90.0.2 64-bit, Windows 10 Pro N, Build 19041.vb_release.191206-1406. System updated. Not very often it starts playing for a fraction of a second. Videos and GIFs everywhere else (as far as places I normally go) plays as it should. Troubleshoot mode didn't solve it; hardware acceleration tweak neither. No crash logs.

Tried on the Edge and everything is fine.

Question: does the suggested "fix" on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-video-audio-problems-firefox-windows embraces this issue as well? If so, sorry, but might be time to change browsers. The reason I'm using Windows 10 PRO ->N<- is exactly not to have to remove Windows Media Player and related "bloat" from my system. This isn't one of those crybaby threats I hate to read: it's a necessity.

I must ask: why on Edge, on the same machine, the same problem doesn't exist as in Firefox.

Suggestion for mentioned article: might be helpful point users (also) to the right place of The Media Feature Pack for N and KN versions of Windows 10, on https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48231

Thanks

One morning when I tried to get into my bank account I could not so I called the bank. She walked me through some issues maybe with firewall and removing cookies that might help. Also I had lost all emails and contacts and am no longer receiving mail. My Gmail account is absolutely stopped and lost all data.

My switch from the release version to ESR seemed to go well, but my history and many of my settings and data, including my pinned tabs and extensive notes used by add-ons, were gone. I managed to reconstruct most of them, but was distressed to find that when Fx updated my ESR version those settings were again gone.

I have again restored most of the lost settings (including the one not to automatically update!) but I know I can't defer Fx updates indefinitely, and I also expect I may want to return at some point to the release version--and I desperately don't want to have to reconstruct my settings any more (or at least more than one last time). I'm not concerned about the loss of my history

Since I'm prepared to note all my settings first, starting fresh seems like a viable solution. I just need to know how (unless you can suggest a better option). I'd be happy with either the release or ESR channel.

I kept restarting the firefox browser or restarting my computer, trying to make it my default browser. I have lost on how many times I kept trying. But no matter what I do, it still continued to have Safari as default browser. Even when I did the system preferences of having Firefox being its default browser, it still didn't work. Either there's a bug or something else. I need to know how to fix this or I will lose my mind..how can I make it default if it won't let me.

Hi! When I adjust a volume (Ej. 30%) elsewhere, when change the focus to Firefox browser, the volume automatically raised to 100% no matter if the page or pages are in blank or with content. And when I change to other application, the volume is back to original state (in this case 30%). Yes, it changes system volume, not the app volume. Searched all over internet and couldn't find solution.

Tried: - Deactivate all sound enhancement. - Deactivate sound lowering in call. - Change sound card (realtek to Nvidia) - Change output (back panel, front panel) - Updated drivers - Unplugged periphericals - Deactivate Control media via keyboard, headset, or virtual interface - Changed media.default_volume in about:config Nothing works

This only happen with Firefox and Chrome browsers. Microsoft edge, games and other multimedia apps has not problem.

I am using AMD Ryzen 5600X Asus TUF b550m 16GB RAM

Firefox 90.0.2 Windows 10, Version 20H2, Build 19042.1110

Hope we could find a solution. This is very annoying when using a headset. Regards

I am SO PISSED OFF AT THIS S*IT NOT WORKING RIGHT ON HERE! THE BROWSER IS FINE. IT. IS. YOUR. SITE. THAT. IS. TRASH.

Know under security. The list of where you were logged in. blah blah time ago. So I start logging them out. Then SUDDENLY this PIECE OF SH*T just STOPS DOING IT. Keep asking me the STUPID. QUESTION. WHY. I. WANT. TO. LOGOUT. That my friend is the MOST STUPID THING TO DEMAND TO LOGOUT! WTF! Is Mozilla finally gone NUTS?! I BET I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE. Man Mozilla. Used your stuff since the BEGINNING it was MADE. BUT DAMNIT! DON'T YOU DO THIS "FORUM SUPPORT" Like that DAMN GOOGLE! Argh this is SO STUPID!! ! Oh the BEST ONE is NOT BEING ABLE TO CHANGE THAT DAMN PICTURE ON THE TOP RIGHT!!! /\ RIGHT UP THERE! SCREAM!!! YOU JUST BEAT GOOGLE. Wtf! MAN WTF? Oh I KNOW I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE HERE. YOUR. DAMN. MENU. BUTTON. DOES. NOT. WORK. DAMNIT!!! Put it this way AS OF Today if YOU DO NOT GIVE ME AN ANSWER. Boy you BETTER hope these real experts have the answer. I AM SO PISSED OFF AT YOUR STUPID "KIDDY MENUS" man. WE INSTALL FIREFOX OVER CHROME BECAUSE WE ARE MOSTLY EXPERTS YOU DINGBATS! And for F**K SAKE! BACK. UP. THE. PASSWORD. INFORMATION. WHEN. WE. CHANGE. OR. RESET. THE. SERVICE. SO. WE. CAN. GO. BACK. TO. IT. IF. WE. NEED. TO. Why didn't you think of this already?! Stored backup on the client's DEVICE. Remember. It is ENCRYPTED. Argh. Please someone who is a real expert help me with this. The ones who take their own time. To help. Your all amazing. Wish those asses would have a help staff... Hah. I will give them a break. Google is the antichrist of huge companies with names like Microsoft and... cough copy lifting. Can they NEVER come up with it from SCRATCH? This is like Jeff Goldbloom in Jarassic Park! (I KNOW I sp'ed on that.) Ever notice how ALL the new software "kind of works". Makes me sick. Anyway. Remember him saying they didn't make it themselves. Just slapped a Google label on it.. hahah... Am sure there are MILLIONS OF us that feel that way. I figure he had the perfect description. Who the hell makes the "change your avatar" not work and EXPECT you to TRUST them with ALL your PRIVATE passwords. Logins. And be this moronic! Never thought I would be saying that about Mozilla. Wtf Happened? You hire people from Google? I am feeling all your guys pain for you man. This is some real stupid sh*t! Talking about wasting time when you don't have a beer. I just lost all my damned passwords. Because it did not save them at all. Having the DAMNED ENCRYPTED FILE ON OUR HARDWARE will NOT "compromise" it. WHY didn't you think of this already? I REALLY wanted that beer. I was SO PISSED I almost did something I have NEVER done before. I ALMOST installed Microsoft's explorer crap for Android. Hah. How fitting they put that on Google. That is SUCH a smack in their face. Anyway, here's your image everyone hates to see. I am sure... Go figure. Now that button down there does not work. No. I turned off all add-ons, even the extra protection in Firefox is off. And I can not press that DAMNED "Browse..." button. Wtf man. I really wish I had that beer...
