Hi. Is there anyone having experienced similar phenomena?

1) Firefox stops showing Gmail correctly after a few days. Immediately after starting Firefox, I can log-in and open Gmail.com correctly. But after a few days keeping opening Gmail on Firefox, Gmail.com shows error messages regarding Cookie (please see the attached screenshot). If I do "Try clearing the startup cache" from trouble shooting information tab, Firefox shows Gmail correctly again, but after a few days the same issue happens again.

2) Fire fox cannot log-in on Outlook.live.com. As title says, I cannot log-in outlook live. Whenever I try to log-in from Outlook log-in page, Firefox shows log-in page again. This issue isn't resolved by inactivating "Enhanced tracking protection".

Both of them started to happen since the update around the end of 2023, I think. (On the other hand, Chrome works on both websites correctly)

If you have some information, it might help me. Thanks in advance.

Again I had to create a new question because i still get an "Unexpected error" when I try to answer. (By the way I tried all suggestions to fix the error and also reinstalled Firefox but still have the error)

jscher2000 i think you are correct. The blue link in the PDF file is not a web link but a link to the specific attachment. It appears browsers are currently unable (not programmed) to access attachments directly. I tried in MS Edge with the same result. After contacting MS Support, MS stated that they are aware of the issue and that they are working to fix it in a future release of Edge.

Attachments can be accesses in Adobe Acrobat as you described, but it would be good to be able to access them directly from Firefox instead of having to save them and then using Acrobat.

After an update yesterday, I found out the password manager integrated in Firefox was completely empty. I tried to rename logins.json.corrupt into logins.json, I tried deactivating all the plugins and I also tried copying the file into a new Firefox profile but it got corrupted right away again. If I put in an old logins.json it works but unfortunately it's a saved file from about 3 years ago.... Any idea about how I could get my passwords back? How to "uncorrupt" the logins.json?

Thank you in advance.

Hi,

I wish to provide a co worker with access to some websites (and provide the site passwords), this will involve - from what I can see setting up a separate FF profile (that we both sync to - by using a Firefox Account) on my PC, somehow copying the bookmarks and passwords from my general profile into a new 'co worker' profile, the co worker (via sync) would then see the bookmark, and then hopefully also have the password available.

I can see how to export/import all my bookmarks, or have her sync to my 'general' FF account quite easily, but I only want to give her access to work related bookmarks and PWds.

Any thoughts appreciated.

I asked this issue before. https://discourse.mozilla.org/t/cant-login-whatsapp-web-after-early-april-2022-update/97589 It's still continuing.

Expansion: 新同文堂 facebook container ublock origin

I tested a fresh install of firefox. Still can’t get login with the privacy mode. But the normal mode works. When I adjust the settings checking “Do not keep history” and “Clear cookies and website data when closing firefox”. It returned. After a new installation process, I stoped when I checked “Do not keep history” I speculated that this the effect.

But no matter which browser I used, I save no browsing history records. Why only firefox got compatibility problem? Or did whatsapp work anything behind?

I've been hoping it would get better over the years but it's been a very long time and things never got better so I'm wondering why is the "new"(I think it's been close to 7 years now) addon is so restrictive?

I can't live without tab grouping and it's impossible to do the way I like with this new addon system and none of the many alternative are as good so it's been keeping me away from firefox since the change.

Is there a reason it's kept that way? I'd really like to come back to firefox because I'm sick of chrome and the smaller browsers have many compatibility issues because website ignore them but as long as the addon system remain as-is, I just can't.

Other browsers work fine - Edge, Chrome. Firefox had been working fine and abruptly started behaving badly. I powered down my system and restarted, that's when the "Unable to connect" started. Uninstalled and reinstalled, still happening. Uninstalled and scrubbed system of all relevant traces of Firefox (didn't meddle with minor registry entries), restarted and reinstalled. Still "Unable to connect".

I have exhausted my knowledge set and the only thing I know of that I have yet to try is monitor the ethernet stack or process activity.

Help!

I've been trying to reply to moderator "Phil" who requested information regarding Firefox crashing while on Youtube. When I press "Post reply" all I get is an error message:


An Error Occurred

Oh, no! It looks like an unexpected error occurred. We've already notified the site administrators. Please try again now, or in a few minutes.

It's important "Phil" gets my message as others may be affected my possible Youtube shenanigans. If possible, can you forward this message to "Phil": Unfortunately there are only two reports generated during the problems with Youtube:

bp-91f496a8-971c-4a87-a642-011d10240220 bp-7d820f6c-dcf9-4cef-bb60-1a9f50240217

The problem caused my system to stop responding forcing me to power cycle to clear my PC, so no reports could be generated. Hopefully these two will show what the problem is. In the meantime, can you check the reply system to make certain it's working properly?

Greetings. so I have been using this type of browser since netscape vs ie. enjoy and use firefox daily, when i can. there seems to be a weird process of constantly changing the software, and not allowing reliability. I can set for no updates, or only if i allow it, but firefox ignores me and updates anyway and then displays a new front page describing the mischief the coders have been up to. couple weeks ago, you broke it. dead. like a brick. switched to brave, there were a couple updates, you undid whatever you broke, fine. then a day or two ago, broke it again. not really a fun game. once i am able to move bookmarks over to brave, why do firefox? it takes forever to start, presumably while it sends all my browsing history and downloads to be examined for commercial potential. I can give fire fox a 2 or 3 minute headstart, hit brave, in 10 seconds i can use it, firefox still busy with industrial spying, or something. eating a sandwich? who knows. if there is any way to tell the coders to create a do not change, leave my damn browser alone because it works button, that would be nice. otherwise, its just a weird game for someone i guess, but i dont have time to play.....

Firefox regularly forces me to restart the browser because of background updates being executed. When loading a new page I get: "Restart to Keep Using Firefox - An update to Firefox started in the background...". (see image below) Background updates of Firefox are disabled in the browsers preferences. (see image below) After restarting the browser, I actually noted, that the version is still the same as before (Noticed this the first time today, when taking the screenshot). (see image below) Anyway, it's a really annoying fact which made me and some colleagues almost leaf Firefox, even though I have been forever.

What is causing this issue and how can I stop it?

System:

  • Windows 10
  • Firefox 122.0.1 (and prior versions)
  • Reproducible on other machines
  • Machines are not managed remotely

Hello, so I have been putting my custom links onto the 'top sites' start page in Firefox, by editing the icons and putting the URL, etc. It is a great 'speed dial' type feature I love. One thing has me tearing my hair out after trying all ways to try and fix this to appear to my liking, is the 'custom icon' from the website not showing in the sites I want to 'speed dial' Facebook and YT show up fine, but random sites I want on the page don't do this. I don't care why this is anymore, please don't give lengthily fixes. It's just silly you need a working URL with an icon at the end of it to display this properly. It did make me very mad, can you tell, even madder when I saw it done as it should be in OPERA browser, on their 'top sites', or 'speed dial' customizable home page they have the sensible option there to pick your own icon, you can put in a folder on your desktop if you like, no working URL needed! start a collection of what icons you want to see on your own start page. Can you please implement this 'common sense' modification as soon as possible, it will take only minutes of code writing i'm sure. I do not want to, but I will go to Opera as my main browser for this common sense functionality, good luck and thank you.

Is there a way to rename things in the Passwords list? I'm not concerned about MY password or sign-in, but what appears in the list. A name such as "login.live.com" tells me nothing about what site that sign-in will take me to. I'd like to be able to rename it with something that gives me a hint.

I have a fairly long list of saved logins, and visually scan the list at times to get to a supplier or service I need.

I'm using a desktop, Windows 10.

Thanks.

My Firefox browser is broken, I can open Firefox but I can not do anything it will not respond, clicking anywhere prompts a "Firefox is not responding" error message, I was able to "refresh" Firefox once with zero results, I have tried uninstalling Firefox yet it will not uninstall the uninstallation window comes up yet no matter how long it sits open nothing happens, I have tried reinstalling Firefox with no results, the installation freezes just before completing and says "Firefox could not be installed". I have been using Firefox as my primary browser for a long time but I am unable to use it in any way now. All other browsers are working fine no issues but I do prefer Firefox and would like to continue to do so. What do you suggest?
