I recently installed my OS and backup the entire profile folder of Firefox. When I put the key4 and logins file in to the fresh install there was only one password in it, the remaining passwords were gone. I also noticed that a new file (logins.json.corrupt) is created along with file(logins.json). I tried to paste the files again to fix it but same issue. I think the files are corrupt. Is there any way to fix it?

fb://marketplace_category/?browse_context=c2c_listings_nearby_feed&header_override=Listings%20Nearby&upsell_type=C2C_LOCATION_DISTANCE_MODULE

I'm not sure if this is a firefox problem or a Facebook problem, but when I click on certain links in Facebook Market place I get the above message. Other links that go to http://Facebook are fine, but the redirect on things like browse local, or reduced price kicks out this fb:// url. Also it seems like either I'm the only one to use these features or I'm the only one this is happening to because there isn't anything listed about it online.

It works fine on the FB app on my phone, but not on any of my PCs.

I think it was update, my pc restarted. But it usually asks weird. I lost all windows and all tabs. Yet in library/history under restore windows, there is nothing! There was some json file, from which you could get tabs. I tried it last time and it didn't work. Also firefox wasn't even running at that time and previously i had all windows and tabs... Are you kidding me???

I lost like hundreds of important tabs.... Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa............

Firefox - Frequent, frustrating hangs and lockups on new PC

I was lucky enough to be able to buld a new PC recently, Running Windows 10 Pro on a AMD Ryzen 9 5900X rig, Asus Crosshair VII Hero motherboard and 32gb of RAM. Nvidia Gforce 1070 GPU (stand in until I can get better in the new year) Should easily be enough to run Firefox right? Apparently not.

Performance in Firefox is little better than it was on my old rig, (which was still lousy). The browser constantly freezes and locks up, not responding at all to mouse clicks between tabs or on the page. It is especially common when a website opens a file requester, such as when I'm working on my website in Wordpress, but it also happens when working with downloads or seemingly randomly too (my downloads folder is on the C drive and always accessble).

I've tried disabling all plugins (I only have 3, Privacy Badger, Facebook container and Sticky Password), I don't see what point there is in resetting the profile as I only got this computer 3 days ago.

Regards software that might conflict, I run Malwarebytes anti-malware and DisplayFusion but I've tried disabling the latter and still no joy.

I really don't want to Chrome but it's leaving me little choice here. Is there anything else I can try? Thunderbird on the same PC works perfectly.

I am looking for the exact site we need to access to perform auto updates to Firefox DE on Windows 10 64-bit v. 1909. We have numerous security precautions in place and we currently can't access the auto updates area. Our security does not allow us to open the entire downloads area, so we are looking for the exact URL that is required for auto updates to function. We are also wondering if it is possible to have the auto updates point to a local server. This would allow us to bypass giving the full access to the website URL and just point customers locally within our own environment.

Thanks.

Currently on Firefox 83.0 Windows. This specific problem started about 2 versions ago. I thought for certain it would be fixed in a release but has not. It is serious enough that after decades of Firefox I am considering moving on. Situation: When scanning a long site like Feedly, I use the middle button to set auto scroll and start scrolling down, speeding up / slowing down as needed. Previous behavior: When an article appears interesting, I would Left Click the mouse to cancel auto scroll, move the cursor to the article link, click on the article to read. Simple. Problem: When Left Clicking to stop the scroll, Firefox positions the web page much further down the page requiring manual scrolling back to find the article. A SERIOUS usability killer! Testing: Testing in IE 11 and the new Chromium Edge shows correct behavior. Solution: Please restore Previous behavior as described. Priority: Very important

At first, I am sorry for English, but I use a google translator. Maybe someone will write in Polish. I installed thunderbird 78.5.0 (64 bits) nowhere I can find information on how to set this program to download emails from the server and not to stay on this server. My point is that they should be downloaded to the computer and the server will then be clean without a message. That's what I had on my previous computer and it suits me very well. There is only information about leaving messages on the server everywhere, and I don't want to leave them. Please, ask for help screens where and what to set or where to enter what.
