FF 93.0 64-bit - Windows 10

When I booted up the system and ran FF the first time for the day, its window opened, and it even asked for the primary password. After that, nothing I typed in the URL box came out. I could open new tabs but not able to switch to them. All Chromium-based browsers and Edge in the same system worked fine.

I did the following trying to fix the problem: I restarted Win10 and ran FF93. Same problem. I restarted using Troubleshooting Mode. Same problem. I reinstalled using the complete package. Same problem. I installed using FF92 and FF91. Same problem. I refreshed FF93 using Troubleshooting Mode. Same problem. I used Win10 Safe Mode to run FF93. It worked. I uninstalled FF93, removed as much as I could all traces of FF and Mozilla in the Win registry, and reinstalled FF93. Same problem.

In the end, I had to use Win10 Recovery and revert to an earlier date to fix it.

The first incident happened about two weeks ago. It happened again this morning. My use of PC has been routine for years, I would say for more than a decade, or at least in the last five years. No extraordinary applications or routines.

BTW, I haven't updated my Win10 in years, because doing so often times gave me new mysterious issues to troubleshoot, courtesy of MS. You should very well know Win updates produce issues, and the bug fixes following them produce even more. The annoying thing is I would research on the issues and find out later (sometimes days) that the updates were the culprits.

This is the second time it happened to my FF93, and I feel I have to report this to get some idea about why this is happening (only to me?) and how to fix or prevent it without having to go into Recovery (again?).

Please help me bring up my home page for channels. I was downloading Amazon kids and it was loading so I left the room for about 10 minutes. I came back and the screensaver was so I clicked round button on remote. Nothing happened so I checked cables they seemed fine. So I turned off tv and on again and a blue line came up at the bottom of the screen.

Is it possible to restore a lost session after another session was started?

I relogged my PC then a firefox window opened (not my homepage) which i accidently closed. Then i opened firefox and it opened to my homepage. I clicked restore previous session but all that was there was the page i had just closed that i had not wanted.

I tried crashing firefox and opening previous session but still brings me to this session.

Is my only option to go through my history for last many months to open all these tabs I previosly had open in 2 pages?

Hello! Something in my Firefox installation seems to be making several Google network (google.com / forcesafesearch.google.com / www.youtube-nocookie.com / m.youtube.com, and a couple of others) calls shortly after launch. I have a DNS sinkhole, so that is how I can see.

I have a few reputable extensions (or should be, from EFF, Firefox itself, or Ublock Origin), but it also happens in safe mode. I went through a good chunk of this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-stop-firefox-making-automatic-connections and still the calls occur

I am on Windows 10, with FF v93.

Thanks very much!

Firefox launches new browser when printing PDF files

I am on macOS Mojave and since the last Firefox update, I have been experiencing problems when printing a PDF attachment in my email. When I open the attachment, it opens in html which is fine. Then when I click print, a new tab opens with the printer settings, etc. but Firefox also launches a new browser, not just a new tab in the same browser. I have tried to change the print settings, reset the print settings, etc. but it has not helped. I can print the same attachment in another browser, such as chrome or safari without any issues.

The attached image shows my browser in the background with the pdf and printer window open in one tab and then the newly launched browser in the foreground which is blank.

When I download a PDF with certain radio buttons selected, if I open up the PDF in the Firefox PDF-viewer, a certain radio button value isn't displayed as being selected. When I open up the same PDF in any other browser or Adobe acrobat, the radio button is shown as being selected.

This issue is a major blocker for our project and we would love to get a resolution on this ASAP.

Thanks, Dalyan Kosar

I have an issue where I think someone hacked my computer and accessed internet sites causing financial problems for me. When I search the internet history 4 and 5 months back I get the same results for month 4 as I get for month 5. I know the location and times I am looking for but they are not showing up in the history (thinking that I did this and don;t remember). Ay idea how I can determine if access was established by my computer or why I am seeing duplicate information on different months?

I added a secondary email address, but it doesn't display. After waiting several days, I tried adding again, but it wasn't accepted with the message email address already exists. It still doesn't display. I have reviewed the on-line instructions and followed them precisely. The instructions do not cover this issue.

Any suggestions or assistance appreciated.

I am trying to print some pages from within my Firefox browser which is updated daily.And no matter what settings I choose for page width, margins, orientation or scale/fit to page the pages print way to the right and half the information is not printed. This happens when I choose to print the whole pages as well as when I choose to print my selection. I went to the new about support page (which I hate as I cannot change settings like I used to be able to change them) and I cleared the printer settings as was suggested in the Firefox help section and that had no affect/effect on the printing issue. I have wasted half a ream of paper trying to figure out how to deal with this on my own and have just filled my trash receptacle! Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated. And you could throw in (if you like) a tip on how to change settings in the new about: support/config pages) Thanks very very much!

Hello,

I’m using firefox-dev under debian linux and since last updates my cron script that was supposed to open a certain url in firefox at a regular schedule stopped working.

I do export DISPLAY=:0 than run firefox $url and all was fine previously but now I always received a message : “Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To use Firefox, you must first close the existing Firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile.”

You can easily reproduce by running : sudo -u $(whoami) /path/to/firefox-dev/firefox https://www.google.com

Can somebody explain what is checked by firefox and why it consider it is not responding instead of just open my url in a new tab ?

This probably seems like a silly gripe, but when copy-pasting text, say from a website into a Google Doc, I used to often paste it into the URL bar first, then copy it to paste into my Doc, because that was a quick easy way to remove formatting from the texts (hyperlinks, bold, etc.).

At some point relatively recently, this changed. Now when I paste a chunk of text into the URL bar and either cut or copy it from there, what I get when I paste it is just the URL of the page I'm on. The text I'd pasted into the URL bar might STILL BE THERE when I hit ctl+C and ctl+V but what gets pasted is the URL of the page that actually is nowhere to be seen. Is there a way around this or do I just have to take longer to remove formatting from pasted text now? Thank you for any info!
