Hello,

I just upgraded to Firefox 87 and noticed that I wasn't able to go back to the previous webpage by clicking on the backspace button like what I have done in the past if I'm not using a mouse on my laptop and had to click on the back button in the toolbar with the trackpad. I'm not too sure of why that happened with the upgrade and was a little surprised about that. Hope I can be able to get around this in some way if one of you know anything about this. Thanks.

The firefox installation on my desktop is not able to render anything.

Even the about:preferences window is not able to show anything both under my account and a new account I made. I even attempted to update to a new version of my distro (Pop OS) in an attempt to fix it.

My Firefox account is able to do a sync (shows up in the dropdown) so it does not have to do with proxies. Chromium also works fine.

I would rather not have to use Chromium so any help will be appreciated. I have tried running firefox in safe mode and doing a "Refresh".

The import of the logins and passwords does not work on new Firefox 88.0.1. I've switched to new PC and I installed the same Firefox 88.0.1 as on old PC. I tried several times to sync old PC and new PC without success.

I exported logins to a file on old PC and I enabled import from the .CSV files on new PC. That does not work neither as I got almost all imports errors. I attached the print-screen.

On new PC even when I enter manually login and password on page the password is never saved. It looks like Lockwise is completely busted. Please let me know when could you fix this critical error ?

On a certain webpage the behaviour of CRTL + left click vs. right click -> open in new tab is deviating. I've tried it with turned of addons and in different versions of firefox. (It is annoying because it overrides the current tab and i have to restart the listing of podcasts)

https://www.mdr.de (for example check out the podcast episodes here https://www.mdr.de/nachrichten/podcast/kekule-corona/index.html ) CTRL + left click = mostly opens in the same tab right click menu = works fine

Dear community, I have Firefox installed on Windows with serveral user profiles. I understand that firefox caches certain inormation in the Firefox/<profile name>/cache2 directories. I know, how to clear these directories. But there is also one cache2 directory next to the profile directories directly in the Firefox folder. This directory also contains several thousand files, which seem to be updated in a similar manner as the cache2 folders in the various profile directories. I would like to know, which information is stored in that "common" cache2 and how it can be cleared. Thanks

Just recently, I can not login into several websites using "Firefox". With other browsers, I have no problem. For example, whenever I try to login to Evernote , I get the following error: "The page isn’t redirecting properly. An error occurred during a connection to www.evernote.com. This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies." I had no prior problems before and I have made no changes to my settings. Apparently, there is something broken in Firefox because no other browsers produce this error. I have already tried the suggested solutions such as clearing history, cache and everything else. I have even uninstalled and re-installed several times but it always eventually returns to this state. Firefox has always been my favorite browser,but if this error can not be fixed, I have no problem dropping it forever and switching to a more reliable browser. Please fix this,don't force me to change browsers.

Opening firefox is just a blank white screen without borders (screenshot 1) Apparently it seems it didn't hang and it I can determine the location of the URL bar by hover the mouse and can click the location of the close button to close the window This is different from most issues since they can open it in Safe mode I can't even open in safe mode since it also shows a blank white screen (screenshot 2) I already tried uninstall and reinstalling with fresh settings but nothing works

I'm trying to migrate my Firefox from a very old 42.0 version (where I was stuck due to valuable plugins discontinuity) to some actual version (Mac OS). Attempt to just install the latest version doesn't work because it cannot properly convert stored passwords and the places database.

From the support article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/lockwise-losing-login-information-firefox-update, I know that for passwords I should at least visit the intermediate version 68, which should be able to convert older passwords database.

What other upgrade points should I visit to successfully overcome the gap?
