Hi friends,

I am receiving an error that firefox is out of disk space.

"firefox is running out of space"

Despite following the instructions the error still appears. I also clicked the "Got it" button in hopes that this would make the error go away, but it keeps coming back. My system has over 20gb free and I really can't see why this error is occuring.

Does anyone have any advice? (besides switching browsers)

Thanks.

Hi everyone,

I do need help on the following issue: I'm logged in my mailbox with Firefox browser. The password is saved and available in the browser settings. BUT. If I try to enter it and log in from another device, the mail service says the password is wrong. I can't understand how it is possible. The browser should use one of the saved passwords for the authorization, right? Why doesn't it work outside this very browser?

MAYBE one day I changed the password in the mail service, logged in, BUT didn't refresh it in the browser settings? May the browser use some cookies, service files or something like that for authorization despite unactual password saved? If yes, then how is it possible to extract the true password out of those files?

I turned to the mail service support, but they can't help me, because I didn't enter my real name, phone number or something during registration that could help to check my identity. So the only opportunity to save my mail is to use the browser files somehow. I'm going to reinstall Windows and I will loose access to my mail forever in this case that would be very very bad.. ((( Please, help!

I closed my laptop and left it on standby last night (May 1). I woke up this morning to find it needed to be booted up. Fine. I did this and noticed that I could not restore my session from last night. I have Tab Session Manager installed but the regular Firefox session restore wasn't doing it either. I restored the session but the tabs were wrong. I checked. There is no May 1 record, only April 29th. So I'm missing tabs that I left open on purpose and need to get back to. I checked history to reopen my needed tabs but history was also overwritten.

I realized that the history I saw was from my phone. (iOS 14.5, iPhone 7) I did not tell my phone to sync Firefox.

I added some important bookmarks recently and also need to have access to my browser history on my laptop, as I don't use my phone for more than casual browsing, bringing up recipes while I cook, small things. All my important stuff is done on my laptop.

I tried searching and found something about adjusting Folder Options and looking for index.dat but that was unsuccessful. I thought maybe rebooting the PC might help, but no luck.

I already turned off history sync on my laptop browser and history/bookmark/tabs sync on my phone under sync settings.

Is there some way to get my browser on laptop to where it was yesterday?

Только в браузер FireFox происходят проблемы с изменениями шрифтов при отображении информации и отображением картинок. Проблема не статична, а динамична (картинка одна и та же может нормально отобразится а может быт в артефактах). в Chrome и Opera таких проблем нет. OS Windows переустановил, браузер поставил заново - проблема осталась.

I use Zone Alarm Extreme Security to scan for viruses, etc. I just upgraded to the latest version on my Windows 8.1 PC. Almost every scan has found the Heur:trojan-Downloader.script.generic virus in the same place. The path is as follows:

C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\56zaeue3.default\extensions\staged\{b54cc223-b03f-4f2f-8cab-347ec67ab3fe}\bootstrap.js

ZA keeps treating the virus, but I want to get rid of it all together. I haven't been able to delete it because it is not visible in the folder location listed in the path. I've turned on view system/invisible files, but it is not visible. ZA tech support suggests reinstalling Firefox to see if that solves the problem, and if not, then a complete uninstall then reinstall of ZA.

I'm wondering if I can just delete the "staged" folder to get rid of the virus... The only extension I have added to Firefox is AdBlocker Ultimate, and I did that after the virus started showing up.

Has anyone else had this virus problem and if so, how did you solve it?

Recently having problems with very slow running and freezing so performed a refresh. Now I seem to have lost all my tabs that automatically opened when starting Firefox. Can I get them back from the Old Firefox Data folder that the Refresh process created on my Desktop or do I have to start again and remember all 78 tabs that used to be on my Home Page?

I lost a session with many tabs.

Unfortunately "Restore previous session" was not available. I found a upgrade.jsonlz4 file with a date and time which would have the tabs on it. The size is larger than other ones so I figured this was the best option. I coppied this and pasted it into profiles. Renamed it sessionstore.jsonlz4... Renamed the sessionstore that was in there already to sessionstoreOLD Restarted firefox and when I click on restore previous session button I just get 2 blank tabs.

I then tried the other files which are significantly smaller but still no dice.

I tried the jefferson scrounger and it just gets stuck on "processing"

Any help would be much appreciated.

Please see screenshot of the files I had available to me and saved to a usb.

Somehow, I appear to have installed a plugin called the Lhite Network Extension. It creates hotlinks to advertising sites from plain text "keywords" in web pages. The originator of the plugin is something called Advertising (gear symbol) Support, Inc. and their web site is www.advertisingsupport.com. The removal instructions on that site are generic and do not provide the specific name of the plugin for Lhite Network Extension.

Neither Lhite Network Extension or anything from Advertsinig(gear)Support are enumerated in Firefox's lists of plugins and extensions, nor is anything shown in the Windows 8.1 add/remove program utility. Registry searches are negative as well. Running Firefox in "safe mode" prevents the add on from loading, but I still don't know which one it is.

Any suggestions about how to rid myself of this would be appreciated.

In Firefox 24.0 -> Tools -> Options -> Applications, I cannot choose a program (hh.exe) to read .chm files. When I choose to open a *.chm file I have only the option of saving it, not to open it. Other browsers like Explorer, chrome, even old netscape 7.2 allow me to open it and the program finds I presume the hh.exe file and away you go. I cannot find a way to get Firefox (my favorite browser) to read chm files.

I am trying to play a video (the website supports .webm, .ogv, mp4) but neither autoplay nor the start button seem to work. However, if I slide the control button to the right (+/- 40 sec) the video does play.

I have tried many of the solutions suggested in other threads (deactivating potential conflicting plugins, resetting Firefox, etc.) but none of them work.
