When I open Firefox browser the browser restsets and changes color to pink in the web address line. I have asked this question before. Is there someone technically familar with Firefox that can resolve this issue?

There's not really much skirting around it. Yesterday, I came across this sudden error with my Firefox browser on PC (see annexed image), which basically rendered me unable to open it for some reason. It did get fixed that same day somehow, though for a short while, as I was faced with the same error message again today and once again haven't been able to open my browser, much to my frustration.

I tried searching about it on the internet, but didn't find anything of help – most videos about it refer to a mistake on the Windows OS with the same code (0xc000185); asking around to people I knew didn't do much, either.

Today I tried a bunch of stuff to see if it resolved my problem in any way, such as: 1. Restarting my laptop (didn't work); 2. Installing both suggested and optional updates available to my Windows version (put me at ease a little, but still didn't work); 3. Searching for malware (antivirus didn't find anything, so I'm thankful this one didn't work); 4. Verifying system files with 'sfc /scannow' (all was good, so it didn't work);

I was also going to try doing a 'chkdsk /f /r', but I didn't have time to, as I had to leave for something. There are also other things such as creating another profile, which I'm considering; updating Firefox, which I can't do because I can't open the browser to check if there are any updates; and reinstalling Firefox, which I'm slightly afraid to do and will leave as a last resort because I don't want to risk accidentally doing it wrong and losing all my history, bookmarks, etc.

Any help would be incredibly welcomed. Thanks in advance.

P.S.: The text on the error message reads (translated from PT-BR): "The app couldn't be started correctly (0xc0000185). Press OK to close the app." Sorry if the photo isn't very good.

Hi folks,

I've searched, but I haven't found anything to help with this particular situation ...

I love Firefox/Mozilla Sync and I use it a lot, but I've recently had a desire/need to set up a scenario that some may think perculiar - let me set the scene ...

  • Work PC running Firefox - 1 profile
  • Work VDI running Firefox - 1 profile
  • Work laptop running Firefox - 2 profiles (work & personal)

Mainly for the sake of sending tabs to the appropriate Firefox profile on the laptop, I want/need to be able to config things in Sync to treat those 2 profiles as being different entities. Currently, it appears that all profiles on a device (or within the same user profile on a Windows computer) are treated as the same entity by Sync.

Any ideas on how to achieve what if trying to do? Is it possible with Firefox/Mozilla Sync?

Thanks for your time.

BTW., for clarity, if it matters, the devices listed above are all Windows. FWIW., I also use FF on Android and Linux ... and MacOS.

My version is 22H2 for x64 and .Net 6.0.30

Thanks!

I have many rare bookmarks. This time I sell my old laptop and rent another laptop. The laptop rental a strange windows version (probably a hack one) and some strange apps (like 360 what what), I uninstalled the 360 what what apps. Then I downloaded and installed firefox and open all bookmarks become 365whatwhat. I did not care it so much, I logged in my firefox account, but the bookmarks did not change! I click sync, all the bookmarks are still 365 or 360 whatwhat. All my previous bookmarks are lost. How to recover?

On my MacOS 10.15.7 system I upgraded from 125.0.2 to FF 126.0 this afternoon. When I started the new version of FF and acknowledged the "downloaded app OK" dialog all the tabs opened as expected except for WordsWithFriends (on Facebook). WWF draws the full board just fine but then throws a less than descriptive error message: "an error occurred. Please refresh." That is an infinite loop as it will return the same error no matter how many times retry is pressed. I logged out of FB and back in, just in case. No change. FB pages show fine, btw. Closed 126.0 and tried downgrading back to 125.0.2. That version with no longer load (or any of the previous four I had on hand). Consumes 100% of the CPU for about six minutes and then changes to Unresponsive in the Activity Monitor. WWF works fine in Safari and Chrome for what that is worth.

Hey there, long story short - nowadays it's crucial to support those who WFH, and most people use G Suit for company work. I personally have a few daily calls via Google Meet and having the TAB sharing feature available is highly appreciated. I know this was requested a lot, but this is a real dealbreaker for many people.

What are your thoughts on this? Maybe it's somewhere in the roadmap already? Thanks!

Hey y'all, I just closed Firefox and tried to open in up again a few minutes later. The icon in my taskbar threw an error saying it couldn't find the executable. I typed Firefox into the run dialog and FF came up but has no icons on the home screen, zeroed out my bookmarks bar below the URL field and deleted all my bookmarks (100s).

I went into the User/../../Mozilla folder system and found a folder called bookmarksBackup or something similar. It was completely empty.

Any chance these were saved somewhere else as well?
