Win 10/FF I reinstalled FF after automatically downloading 73.0 and I had a terrible day on computer yesterday. SLOW. It was fine today, for some reason, so there are no issues I can detect. Because I have an old laptop, should I download the 32-bit version? I spent a lot of time restoring FF, even though I thought everything would rollover. Can I do the change w/o reinstalling everything???

Thank you.

My sites are redirecting to https when they should not be redirecting. Problem does not exist with chrome , IE, and Edge.

I have some sites that are blocked in some countries if they are https. So I want these websites to be http. Better than nothing.

FF is directing http to https. I dont want that , but thanks anyway.

I've had this problem since Windows 10 updates from November 2019? When I boot up first thing in the morning and open Firefox I am connected to the net with my ISP but Firefox just hangs and in the bottom left corner says Looking up whatever I've clicked on say Gmail? Nothing happens. If I leave it a while say 2 or 3 minutes I am connected to Gmail and can read my emails. When I click on the link to say Facebook it just hangs again? It may or may not connect. When I open Google Chrome or Microsoft edge I am immediately connected to websites with no problem. I have researched this problem, switched off Microsoft Firewall, and added Firefox to my list in Malwarebytes Premium. It seems to run okay for a few day6s and then the problem returns? Everything okay this morning, all good. Closed Firefox, went had some lunch and when I opened again it refused to connect me to the net, but Google chrome and Edge does? I'm at my wits end now. It's clearly not a internet connection problem else I wouldn't be able to use Chrome or edge? This seems to be something in Firefox that is cutting me off. As I say if I click on a website within a minute or two it will connect me but only that site. Has anyone any idea what might be causing this. All Windows 10 and Malwarebytes software up to date as is Firefox, google chrome and edge. Hope someone can help!

Thanks.

Hi all! I need help getting my Firefox running again. Today it crashed (due to lack of available RAM), I had to shut it down in the task manager. When I restarted the browser, it couldn't load any content anymore. That means the upper control bars of the browser window work as usual, the lower part of the window stays completely blank.

I can't load any websites, local servers or routers, no local content such as images, or offline htmls, nor internal pages such as about:config.

What I tried so far:

- disabeling hardware acceleration

- disabeling proxy settings

- starting firefox in safe mode

- refreshing firefox

- reinstalling firefox (73.0)

- reinstall with profile reset

- reinstall with manual deleting Program Files\Mozilla Firefox and AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox

...maybe even more.

Nothing helped.

Interestingly, even firefox portable shows the same behavior now, though at least one page was able to load after 15 minutes or so. I also noticed that the firefox.exe is still active in the taskmanager after I close the browser (under user tab, not under processes) - I have no idea if this has to do with the problem.

I would really appreciate any help! Thanks! Jay.

Well, here we are at version 73.0 and the developers are now making life even more miserable after their premature decision to disallow Flash to run without having to be authorized EVERY DAY on EVERY SITE that still uses it (and no, developers, you are not forcing the website designers to dump Flash faster by your stubbornness).

Today, I got a new drop-down from the address bar about Firefox blocking social media sites from tracking me. I can't complain about that -- at least, not until some problem pops up for me as a result of it -- but it is obscuring the control to allow Flash to run, and by the time I got the new drop-down cleared the control did not allow Flash to run and I had to reload the page.

However well-intentioned the developers are, I still maintain that they should -- until Flash officially deprecates at the end of the year -- allow a decision made by the user to allow Flash at a specific website to be saved by Firefox and eliminate the daily hassle of re-authorizing. ESPECIALLY SINCE NOW THAT OTHER ENHANCEMENTS INTERFERE WITH THE FLASH ALLOWING DROP-DOWN.

This is my ongoing request, which will be made on every new release this year until the developers understand that they are making the experience of using Firefox less user-friendly. All because they just couldn't wait for the Flash deprecation to change how Firefox treats that plug-in.

Guys, you are NOT the overseers of the internet, and the internet does not make changes just to keep you happy.

Fix this in version 74 so I don't have to embarrass you again over this.

I've had no problems for years when using PayPal to pay for Ebay items, but suddenly 14/02/2020 the PayPal pop-up window just sits there with the spinning circle. Paying by credit/debit card works fine, but I want the payment to come straight out from my bank account. Followed the simple instructions like disabling AdBlocker and checking Pop-ups are allowed, as given in other answers. Still stuck for a solution, saw elsewhere a reference to user_pref file but that just confused me as I'm not that technically minded. Any help would be gratefully received.

Other browsers such as Chrome and the new Edge are working fine as expected.

I use a master password for my Firefox account. My desktop Firefox account only required me to enter my master password once and I have never, in the year or more since, had to enter it again. However on my laptop, I am constantly nagged to enter the master password each and ever time I open Firefox. And if I don't enter it and press cancel, it will eventually nag me a few seconds to a a few minutes later.

I've searched support and none of the suggestions have resolved the issue. I don't use AVG or Eset Internet Security. I followed the steps in the guide anyway but did not resolve the issue.

Thank you for your consideration.

My laptop: Microsoft Surface 6 i7-8650U, 8Gb RAM Windows 10 Home 64-bit version 1903 Firefox version 73.0.1

Firefox did an automatic update and totalled my old Firefox, or so I thought. I deleted Old Firefox. I downloaded new Firefox. Old Firefox reappeared with bookmarks, but New Firefox also appeared without bookmarks. I am completely mystified as to what I should do. Delete new Firefox and continue to use old Firefox? Or is there some way to install new Firefox and keep my old bookmarks on which I rely? I find this unfortunate migration disturbing and am wondering what went wrong and what else is wrong with new Firefox and the migration process. Thanks to anyone who can help me on this.

""Many users with low vision rely on Windows' High Contrast Mode to make websites more readable. Traditionally, to increase the readability of text, Firefox has disabled background images when High Contrast Mode is enabled. With today’s release of Firefox 73, we introduce a “readability backplate” solution which places a block of background color between the text and background image. Now, websites in High Contrast Mode are more readable without disabling background images."

This "upgrade" has made unreadable many webpages. I have - for years - used a high-contrast screen color set-up: black background with white letters. I used to be able to control the on-screen colors of visited and unvisited links. That control went away a few "upgrades" ago.

This most recent upgrade, make all e-Bay pages unreadable: there are huge white areas, which used to be black.

How do I undo this "upgrade", so that Firefox no longer wrecks my screen-color set-up.

Note: I will not - under any circumstances - address a problem created by an upgrade, by changing my computer's settings, e.g., by editing registry files, etc.

Overnight it seems that Firefox is no longer reading my old saved logins and passwords. I have checked to see that the logins.json and key4.db files are present, but the new Lockwise page shows nothing. When I look at the about:protections page, it shows that I still have 400+ logins and passwords protected. I tried to make a new profile and import backup data and Firefox still does not see the saved logins and passwords in the new profile. Any ideas on what is causing this behavior? I have so many accounts, and would like to get this functionality working again.

This is a direct question as to whether Firefox saves any user NON DELETEABLE information. It appears Chrome does. These are not cookies or history as I know it. Presumably after Chrome has uploaded to a server somewhere it is then deleted or perhaps there is a timed or storage limit delete. The Chrome explanation is that "it makes the user experience faster and better". More likely is that google is increasingly being denied cookie & tracking data because of privacy addons or public opinion, they have a new way to get most of the same information. They just call it a "profile" rather than a cookie.
