web pages don't display but address is shown at tabs, can't see options but other menu options seem to be okay. I uninstalled and erased all related data (I could find) multiple times and reinstalled multiple times but problem remains. I tried refresh, safe mode, etc. At installation I get error VCRUNTIME140_1.dll not found, a susequent installation finishes without errors. I am sending this from another system because I can't use the problem unit for this post. The problem system is similar to this one. I am puzzled and seek help.

I've been able to sync my firefox account on a university computer until 2 weeks ago. Now when i login to the university computer (in the classroom where I teach), my account "logs in" but nothing syncs (no bookmarks or passwords).

I haven't changed anything with my account. How can I access my synced info on this University computer?

I am using Windows10, Version 20H2 (OS Build 19042.928) with all available patches installed as of 04/14/2021, and am using Firefox 87.0 (64-bit) as the default browser. I have suddenly begun to get the subject error message (Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window.) in Firefox, whenever I try to open an email web link from within Thunderbird. Until a few days ago, the email web link always opened up in a new Firefox browser tab.

If I change the default browser to something else, the email web link opens in a new tab in that browser.

I have tried every solution that has been recommended in this support forum to no avail. The error pops up even when Firefox has been started in safe mode. I have created new profiles to no avail. I have even gone so far as to totally uninstall Firefox, then manually rename all of the Firefox directories in my user profile and then install a clean version of Firefox. So far, I have not been able to get rid of the problem.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Somewhat recently, when editing text in any text field in Firefox (87.0 64 bit), I noticed the arrow keys don't repeat when held down. Other keys do just fine, but the arrow keys, when held down, move one position, there's a very slight delay, and it moves one more position and then stops; no auto-repeating. I've restarted Firefox without addons and that didn't help. I've also toggled the Auto-scrolling and smooth scrolling options too.

This makes editing long text fields a real pain. I don't see this problem in any PC-based apps and arrows keys do repeat OK in Chrome and Edge. It appears to be a Firefox issue.

Any ideas? Many thanks!!!!!

Hi Firefox guys, I've recently created a windows domain (2019 servers only, clients and dc) and deployed firefox 87 On all computers.. Now I need to make sure firefox uses the best practice ciphers only.

    • Is there a way of customizing such security setting, across the network? maybe using GPO**?

(I am having a hard time trying to find relevant info, no luck yet)

Hello Hello,


I have an addon that makes my bookmarks open in new background tabs (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/open-bookmarks-in-a-new-tab/). This works in all but one instance. If I am already on the "New Tab" page, the bookmark opens in that tab. Is there any way to make the bookmark open in a background tab while I am on the new tab page? Thanks!

I've been slowly migrating away from Chrome to Firefox on advice from friends. All of my bookmarks from Chrome were able to be imported, but not logins and websites. I have followed all of the steps regarding privacy settings and importing such info, including making sure Chrome is closed before importing, but to no avail. In addition, when I try to manually save logins/passwords in Firefox, the dialogue box asking if I want to save this information appears and I select yes. However, when I check my saved logins/passwords, there are zero.

All of my permissions are set to allow Firefox to remember this information, yet it still doesn't after multiple attempts on my part and multiple messages from FF saying that it has successfully saved said info.

In addition, when trying to import logins/passwords from Chrome, the dialogue box says it was successful, but another yellow dialogue box appears telling me to login with my Primary Password, yet does nothing when I click on it except take me to the Logins and Passwords page.

Is there a step I'm missing in all of this that would make the browser tell me all of this is working when in fact it isn't?

Hello! I’m using Firefox on 3 laptops and 1 mobile and I specified to sync only bookmarks. I noticed today that Firefox suggests URLs I have typed on one of my laptops when I start typing on my phone. Weirdly, history seems to be limited to my phone activity and my Sync options specify to focus on bookmarks.

Anyway, I am under the impression that Firefox synchronises more than what I asked. Is there something I am misunderstanding?
