1. Yahoo is or has closed my account because I chose not to upgrade to their new system. How do I change my Firefox account using my new email (dick.nehls@wavecable.com) ? 2. for some time I have been unable to print articles from the internet using Firefox while I can with Microsoft Explorer. I prefer to stay with Firefox except for this one inconvenience. I mentioned this to my printer support (Brother Printer) and they said that they could not help me and that I would need to go to Firefox Support.

My old Yahoo may not be working so please use my new email (xxx @wavecable.com)

Thank you very much for your help

I just started having this problem a few days ago prior to the latest FF update. I'll be browsing around and on some websites, all the sudden when I click on a navigation link, I get this Access Denied error. I've tried disabling all add-ons, totally shutting down my VPN, double checked my firewall settings, cleaned out my cookies and internet cache and even updated FF to the current version.I know these few websites (so far) are active, so after doing more researching, I've come here to see if anybody else has any ideas. I would appreciate it

After latest Windows 10 update (2004 or I don't know firefox is telling me I have Windows_NT 10.0 19041 so who knows) about month ago and after that Firefox keeps randomly crashing into desktop. It happens about 6-7 times in a hour! 95% of the time even crash report doesn't show up so I can't send my crash report to firefox. I have updated Firefox, downgraded it, disabled all add-ons I have tried that "media.wmf.vp9.enabled" trick and it doesn't work

What to do? I like firefox and I dont want to use Edge or Chrome. Is reinstalling Windows my only option?

Please help

Hello. After a reinstallation of W10, I imported in Firefox the file "bookmarks.html" that I saved before this installation. Usually it works very well, but this time, there are no more bookmarks in my menu after the import than before ! It looks as there was nothing in my file Bookmarks.html, however I am sure that this file is complete because I verified it in Excel (.csv). What happens ?... Thank you by advance to the community !

I am using Firefox 81.0.2 (64 bit) on a Windows 10 computer. A couple days ago, my address bar started showing up as yellow with grey text. (Admittedly, I was in the options before that and likely did it to myself). But now I can not read what is in the URL/Address bar without highlighting everything. I have been looking ever since then to somehow reset it back to it's default view, but can't seem to find where to do that. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thank you

Why can't i delete my browsing history manually anymore? The only thing i can do is delete pages one by one, not a few at a time, as i used to. I don't want to delete all of my browsing history of the last days or want to delete pages completely from my history. Just would like to, for example, delete a few pages i visited while searching for a product and now getting drowned in ads about them... For me clearing the browsing history manually worked fine. Is there any way to do it like this now?

Once upon a time when trying to create a blank tab, I accidentally typed "about:blank/" and this command doesn't work if the backslash is there.

Now anytime I want to create a blank tab and I type "about:blank" it automatically includes the backslash.

Because this phrase/command doesn't show up in my search history, even after clearing all of my data, Firefox keeps "helpfully" popping that backslash into the field whenever I start to type the command.

How can I make Firefox forget I ever made this stupid typo?! (Would clearing "Site Preferences" and/or "Offline Web Site Data" work? I admit I haven't cleared those two things.)
