I have noticed a few websites will go to blank pages. Today, while trying to log into my Microsoft account, I was able to enter the login id and then the password, but when I went to enter the website I arrived at a blank page. I tried the control-shift-R fix, from this website, but it was of no value.

When I open a bookmark folder and right-click on the 7th item down I cannot select Open in New Tab because the context menu is jammed up against the top of the screen (I believe it is called the Title Bar where resides the date and some of the system menus,) and the Open in New Tab at the top of the context menu is present, will not highlight and cannot be selected with the mouse.

When I try to view my pictures... Firefox has started to ask, every time... "how do I want to view this JPG file.

I must choose, Firefox, Internet explorer and so forth. I choose Firefox and it opens.

BUT.....

How do I get this message to STOP.... every blasted time I click on my pictures.

There's some stuff in the "about:config" that someone changed from true to false... I think...

What do I change back... so this annoying pop up.... stops....

Can you tell me why gmail is recently (within the past 2 months) showing that Firefox has authorized access to my gmail account? It is sometimes showing up as accessing the account minutes before I even log in. It never did this before, but I use a security key to access my gmail account--could this be causing it? The security key mfr says there is no way it can be the key causing this and suggested contacting Firefox. I have reinstalled Firefox and the same thing happens. I have never given Firefox or any other application access to my gmail account. Thank you for any answers you can provide.

The email associated with my account was hacked and I am seeing suspicious activity around it still. So I am changing the email or deleting accounts I am no longer using. However, firefox wants to send a confirmation email to the one that no longer exists for me to change the email on the account. How do I proceed?

I haven't downloaded anything recently (at least not that I know of) and for the past two days now every time I open up firefox, the search bar and images glitch white. You can't see what you're typing and when you go to images on google, all of it turns white. It happens to every website I go to, certain things turn white. Doesn't happen with Chrome, just Firefox. I've cleared the cache and data on it but that doesn't do anything. I've restarted my laptop and tried to make sure it wasn't my laptop that was the problem. I'm nervous to uninstall and reinstall cause I don't want to lose my passwords saved here.

Whenever I try to download anything, it automatically fails. The problem just started recently and I don't know what could have caused it because I haven't done anything that could affect downloads to my knowledge. Things I've already tried are

  • Reinstalling firefox (including full uninstall via "Revo Uninstaller"
  • Updating firefox to the latest version (127)
  • Disabled all firewalls
  • Chose the save location
  • Disabled all parental controls in windows
  • Chose the "don't enable HTTPS mode" (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1414064)
  • Tried firefox & windows safe mode (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1442742)
  • Chose a different save location inside my computer (a folder other than downloads)
  • Cleared download history
  • Ran a chkdsk on windows

The thing is that everthing else of firefox works (browsing the web, watching videos, etc), it's only the downloads. It's also not a computer problem I think because I can download on other browsers (such as chrome and pale moon). Any help asap is appreciated.

Firefox doesn't allow a web message to be sent but Google Chrome does. After filling out the form at: SPECTRUM URGENT: FUNDING FOR THE AFFORDABLE CONNECTIVITY PROGRAM IS RUNNING OUT, I could not send the message because I got a message saying, "Please enter a 5 digit zip code." but I did enter a 5 digit zip code! I copied the URL into a tab of Google Chrome and there was no zip code error so I was able to send my message.

I cannot register a credit card at: https://www.retailservicescommercial.citi.com/USCRSF/CMLSVC/index.html?siteId=PLCR_HOMEDEPOT#sec/signon

I was told eventually after clearing cookies and site data and refreshing the webpage that it doesn't work properly with Firefox and that I needed to use Google Chrome or Edge.

Can this be fixed or not?

Good day!

After the last firefox update, there was a change in the way screenshots are saved. Specifically, the file names are the same, only for some pages they create them uniquely as it was before. I am sending an example of a name (Screenshot 2024-06-17 a[...]) that is the same for different screenshots and therefore I always have to rename it. Before the update, this never happened, each screenshot had a unique file name, so it was saved without the need to enter a file name.

I use this feature very often and i find it very annoying to create file name and it is very impractical and time consuming. Can it be set somewhere? Or what should I do. I really like this function of firefox and I don't use another browser because of it. I don't even plan to, because I think it's the best browser and has a lot of great features. This is one of them and I'm really disappointed that it got worse with the update.

Hi!

I'm confused by the latest upgrade of Firefox (Version 127.0). It gave me the option to create a new profile or Exit when starting it. So eventually I went for creating a new profile and now my old one seems lost. This is not what I wanted.

When using my shortcut on the taskbar, which I've used for years, it suddenly complained I was using an old version of Firefox. This has not happened for me in decades. I've lived with the Firefox installation on this computer for a very long time and it has smoothly upgraded in the background until now. So what is going on now with this upgrade? Is it a major new version of Firefox that doesn't migrate a current profile?

Hello,

I was editing a fillable PDF document in Firefox, which I had saved repeatedly (saved over existing file) as I was making changes.

After a crash, I selected "recover session" and the document was open but was now empty. Another document I was editing, which was not open in Firefox but was being saved to a separate file, did not experience the loss of data entries.

Would anyone happen to know the reason for this issue and whether there is any way to recover the data?

Thank you.
