Today I am observing some odd behaviour with the restart and not now buttons for update. The dialog is clearly still supposed to be visible, however is is more of a graphics artifact.

Click on the windows task bar, change pages and the buttons disappear. once they appear they appear in every tab. To make them appear, move the mouse over them. I am assuming that a Firefox restart will fix the issue and do the requested update. I am making the report because this should not happen with professionally developed software. Firefox should be past the odd graphics glitches of the past.

Just a thought. I had a Complete Theme that I really liked called Silvermel. With the latest updates it is no longer compatible with Firefox. I went to Complete Themes in Firefox Addons to see if I could find something else I liked and found that 95% of them are not compatible. It isn't as bad with my other addons as with Complete Themes but I still loose the use of 1 or 2 addons when Firefox is updated.

Firefox is always talking about how customizable they are and then their advances render it less so. Improving things to the point where you are dis-improving them it is counterproductive. Would you ask the Firefox developers not the change the things that addons need to be usable? If they can't do that then they shouldn't update it. Thank you!

On my other computer I open Firefox and immediately get a pile of pop-ups. These pop-ups seem to be cookie requests from my speed dial sites, and no matter what I click ("allow" or "deny") they keep coming back and then freeze up and I can't use the browser so I have to turn off computer. Help, please.

Sorry if this is the wrong place to post, but I have a little suggestion about this forum. I love helping people and often browse the page https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/firefox?show=all&owner=mine to check if anyone has replied to discussions that I took part in. However, when I then click the link ## questions in the last 24 hours have no reply. Help solve them!, I am redirected to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/firefox?show=all&owner=mine&filter=recently-unanswered, which is always an empty list. Basically, the &owner=mine parameter is still present, but it should have been overriden by &owner=all. On mouse-over, I see that the link does include &owner=all but this does not seem forced as I still end up on a page where owner=mine.

While I think that this question is somewhat irrelevant to Firefox, contributors here should have experience with the site and therefore could help with meta issues.

I'm getting Profile Missing: Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible.

I don't have a caches folder I can remove the contents of the application support folder and nothing changes.

When I go to open the profile manager I get:

MyName$ /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin -P Error: Access was denied while trying to open files in your profile directory.

      1. !!! [Parent][RunMessage] Error: Channel closing: too late to send/recv, messages will be lost

I tried running Disk Utility but it froze the machine as it's a time machine disk and that slows it down immeasurably.

What's my next option?

Lately I often get message that I am unable to reach Mozilla's servers. I live in Russia and my IP is Russian too. I had to reinstall Firefox recently and my sync was incomplete (no logins, no history, no bookmarks) even though I had that checked in before. Could it be external problem because of recent Telegram blockings in Russia? Or is it only me?

Hi all. Seems like after updates, my computer slows down. It has become so recognizable, I know when the registry errors appear, as my computer performance falls off. I must use Reginout Registry cleaner, and CC Cleaner to restore performance. Along with any FireFox updates, my bookmarks have all been deleted many times over. I no longer attempt to re-install, as they continually get deleted, and so simple fix is available to me that I can understand. Thank you.

Persistent scroll problem on one site following a post-crash session restore

I don't normally save and restore sessions, but do have firefox set to restore the previous session in the event of a crash.

Recently, following a power cut, such a session restore occurred, correctly restoring all the pages I had open at the time (not many), and the scroll position within the page.

Since this happened, any page I open on one particular site (https://www.theguardian.com) now always scrolls to the end of the page, and I have to manually scroll back up to the top. Once loaded, you can scroll the page normally, but F5 refresh will reload the page and scroll to the end again. This effect is persistent across restarts, and I've not found a way to get rid of it.

I've tried simulating another crash with that site open, scrolled to the top, and I've tried enabling saving the session on exit and restoring on startup - none of this has changed anything. In both cases it restored the session and scrolled to the end.

Any suggestions as to where this effect might be coming from?

The issue is that Firefox is caching security certificates rather than loading them fresh.

This doesn't become an issue until the cached security certificate expires, then the user faces the "this website is not secure" warning page. The user tries to reload the page multiple times and continues to get the same warning page, then they call me in a panic and say "my website is not loading because it is not secure!"

The solution is Ctrl+F5 and voila the website loads without issue.

However, this is definitely an "issue" and the issue isn't with the website or the lack of knowledge of the end user. End users should not need to know how to refresh their local cache of a website to resolve a security certificate expiring when it has already been renewed. Firefox should by default check for a new security certificate when the cached version has expired or at least that is what would appear to be the logical progression of local caching.

Unfortunately, I have been unable to find a way to report this issue to Firefox developers...so I am reporting it here in hopes that someone in the community has the ear of the development team and can point out this issue.

Thanks, Dr. Pat

1. Synced my Firefox sync account

2. Disconnected my Firefox sync account

3. Reinstalled windows

4. Installed Firefox 56 (I was using 63 but i only had 56 installer)

5. Updated it to 65.0.1.

6. Connected my Firefox sync account


Problem -

1. All bookmarks didn't sync.

I created bookmark HTML backups and it were of 6mb and my latest backup is 171mb.

There are 2980 differences in 173mb backup and Backup taken after again connecting to FirefoxSync. I used WinMerge.

2. HTML backups also contain fav-icons [and Firefox Sync only syncs links not fav-icons.]

When browser is used fav-icons are loaded but after sync fav-icons are loaded as pages are loaded , so there are no fav-icons and html backup size is less than the last backup.

3. Could be related to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1251781

4. There could be something wrong with Firefox's Exporting. Imported the same 173mb HTML to chrome and Firefox then exported HTML backups. Firefox Export was of 61.1Mb Chrome Export was of 12.9Mb

When I start firefox, it boots up, but won't display any content. I just get a white screen. I've noticed when mousing around that everything works - hovering over where the search bar should be changes my cursor, clicking a the top right corner closes firefox, hitting ctrl+T opens a new tab, etc. Starting in safe mode does nothing, I've uninstalled and reinstalled after deleting all system folders, restarted my machine, even searched 'mozilla' in my file explorer and deleted everything that popped up. I'm at my wits end trying to fix this, any help would be necessary. I'm on the latest version of firefox. I've attached some screenshots of what it looks like. (polar bear in a snowstorm)

Hello everyone, Trying to find out if my Mac Mini has been infected with flashback. Using this terminal command,

defaults read /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/Info LSEnvironment,

It should read:

The domain/default pair of (/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/Info, LSEnvironment) does not exist

I cannot find anything about this and was wondering if it indicates anything malicious. Anyone know about this? Thanks.
