Hello, I may be in the wrong place, but I do not know all the proper terminology or definitions. I use Firefox for my browser. I have for many years. Starting yesterday, I was unable to access my History, I tried the other items across the top of the screen and none of them are accessible. Somewhere I saw I should click on a menu button for finding history: I cannot find a menu button "in the upper corner". I kept looking for help and was sent in circles. I also kept seeing something about Firefox Accounts; and Firefox Accounts vs. Mozilla Accounts: I have NO idea what that means. I tried to sign in: no. So, I think I have created a Firefox account now, with a password and done the "reset". I also do not know what that means, but here I am. Please someone tell me how to get help: help that does not assume I already know the answer. Thank you.

Can you attach a screenshot?

Did you try to reboot the computer ?

You ca try to reinstall Firefox and drag to current icon on the Dock to the Trash.

You can create a new profile as a quick test to see if your current profile is causing the problem.

See "Creating a profile":

If the new profile works then you can transfer files from a previously used profile to the new profile, but be cautious not to copy corrupted files to avoid carrying over problems.
