It's been a lot of time now since I've been having problems when opening some web pages using Firefox. When I try to open any of them, the page starts loading but immediately stops and nothing else happens. I've tryed a lot of solutions but they never worked and the problem they were supposed to solve didn't matched completely with my problem. I would like to fix this without reinstalling Firefox if its possible, so that's for me the last resource to use with this issue.

Thanks.

Hi,

I have a new computer and installed Firefox as my web browser. I have also Firefox on my old computer and could by signing in to my Firefox accounts get all my settings and bookmarks in the Firefox on the new computer. On my old computer after opening Firefox there is a bar at the top with from left to right, File, Edit, History, Bookmarks, Tools, and Help. After opening Firefox on my new computer, that bar is not there. Can you please tell me how to get that bar also on my new computer in Firefox.

Thanks, Bert Schmitz

Hello SUMO Team!

  I always had this question but never really asked it. Why isn't DuckDuckGo or a more privacy based Search engine set as default? You even have to manually add Startpage and others... 

 It just hurts me how a privacy browser has the Google search engine as default after all, most people come to Firefox for privacy and Google is the opposite. Maybe one of the developers can change that?

Thank you so much for trying to help me and Stay Safe!

I made a mistake and broke my FireFox profile. I made a new profile, then copied 11 files from a backup of my profile into my new profile folder, following these instructions https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile

Most things came right back, that is very nice.

I am not certain if browser cache is disabled, which is necessary to avoid insanity while making changes to websites, which is what I do all the time. My mental defects did not prevent me finding thousands of web pages explaining how to complete this task. However, my mental defects prevented me finding any explanation created since the formation of the internet (I am estimating the internet first formed in 2008, because the dates of the answers I found indicated as such (anything before 2013 is basically the same as 2008 for internet purposes). And so, I am here to beg a moment of your time to help me resolve this risk to my mental health which will be extremely serious if caching does not discontinue its anti-social activities.

LEST YOU THINK I AM HELPLESS I found my way to about:config, entered cache into the search and up came about eighty various cache, assundry and other forms of affiliated/associated items. The list is diverse, but every item on the list has one very special thing in common with all the others, and as a group, they achieve an astonishing feat.

WHAT THESE configs HAVE IN COMMON All eighty configs produce by the procedures above have the letters c-a-c-h-e somewhere within them in that precise sequence, with no intervening or otherwise contrary letterizations.

THEIR COLLECTIVE FEAT They manage to organize themselves to perfection, including among them every single config containing the letters c-a-c-h-e in that exact order. No slackers calling in with covid or excuses of dogs eating their homework, all do their part in the roll call when its taken this way. This kind of character is exemplary and inspiring.

THE PROBLEM I attempted to calculate how many combinations of values these eighty configs can have. I got as far as determining a penny for each combination would amount to more than 400 times the gross product of economic activity since the dawn of recorded history.

STRATEGY Since trying every combination is too time consuming, my goal is to go straight to the correct config adjustment to send the cache away.

HYPOTHESIS Changing the last item on the list, marked 'cache' from TRUE to FALSE will produce the cacheless experience I must achieve in order to not impersonate a Molotov Cocktail.

The attached image shows what I have in mind. I am going ahead with experiements, but my hope is someone with knowledge will help click this thing in the way it should go.

Bookmark manager is quite good - the manual organization is simple, but I'm confused in same case over and over...

I'm pretty sure, I have some bookmarks already saved to somewhere. But I have a lot of bookmarks. And yes, I can search for some bookmark - the manager find them - I can click and all is running, but - where is the bookmark hidden ? In which folder ? Next time I want to go to bookmarks menu and select that bookmark directly... Not calling BM again and again...

This simple information is missing in searched bookmark, when clicked on them once.

It shows: - name - address - tags - keywords

BUT NOT WHERE IT IS... (?) The folder where it stays...

Do You think it is not important ? For Me sure...

Or I have overlooked something ? Maybe ?

Thank You.

I run Firefox on a number of systems and two of my work computers seem to be unable to check in with the Firefox update servers to get updates. See image for the exact error message.

"Firefox can't update to the latest version. Download a fresh copy of Firefox and we'll help you to install it."

My suspicion is my network team is blocking my browsers from getting to the Firefox update servers but I don't know how to test it. One of my browsers is 77.0, the other is 77.0.1. Both of them give me the error in the image. Both of them insist I'm on the latest version of Firefox when I use 'Help/About Firefox' to check.

If anyone knows what data I should collect to get this figured out I'd appreciate it.

Thanks

the Adobe Acrobat extension stopped working. So I uninstalled it thinking I could find it on the list of add-ons and then reinstall it. However, apparently that's not the way this works. So I tried installing an upgraded version of Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, but the extension was not reinstalled in the process. I talked to the Adobe Acrobat help folks and they said that I have to uninstall and reinstall Firefox. I'm very worried about this because I have so many specific settings set up in Firefox and I don't want to lose any of those. Is there another workaround?

I cannot get Firefox to go completely into full screen on Mac OS Catalina. When going full screen it will hide the Mac system menu bar at the top, but it will not hide the Firefox address bar. I've researched a bit and found some suggestions about settings in about:config pertaining to full screen access, and I've exhausted all of those suggestions. Is this a known issue on Mac with Firefox?

Everytime I try to open an html file, I need to first close Firefox. A message with the error message "Firefox is already running but is not responding the old firefox process must be closed" appears, and the file only opens if I select the "close" option. After the first time I do it, the problem stops and the next tries open the files without any issues. If I drag a html file to a firefox tab it also opens normaly, without any issue.

This problem started after I set up more than one profile in Firefox. The issue occur both on the default profile or other profiles.

Based on some advice I found online, I tried two solutions: - Run firefox with the -no-remote option. - Delete the parent.lock file on the profile folder.

Neither solved the problem.

Does anyone had a similar problem? Did you manage to solve it? It is a minor issue, but it happens every single day and gets very annoying.

I uploaded an screenshot of the error message that appears when I try to open the file for the first time. I also recorded a video for more details: https://imgur.com/a/P0Qpz8f
