I have owned my Mac Book Pro since 2014 and I inadvertently re-installed Firefox without knowing a new profile would be created. I am not able to load my old profile into the new one. I can see the "old Firefox data" folder and have tried everything Firefox has to fix this but nothing is working. I have lost 6 years of bookmarks!

Anything other tricks to fix this? Thanks!

This problem appears on MacOS 10.13.3 but NOT Linux Mint 19.3 (Tricia).

Repeat-by:

1. Start here:

       https://www.cnn.com/

That page should load cleanly.

2. Now click on "Live Updates", which is the top entry in the middle column of that page, and as of 3 April 2022 11:20 AM EDT takes you to:

       https://www.cnn.com/europe/live-news/ukraine-russia-putin-news-04-3-22/index.html

On MacOS, that page loads and is momentarily visible; then the page/tab it's loaded in goes blank. On Linux, that page loads as expected and remains visible.

Notes:

The problem did not happen with Firefox 88.0.1/MacOS.

The problem does not happen with Firefox 98.0.2/Linux, i.e., it appears to be specific to MacOS.

The problem remains whether extensions are enable or disabled (one a time or all at once).

The problem remains after the cache has been flushed and pages have been reloaded.

The problem remains after Firefox has been (completely) shut down and (cleanly) restarted.

The problem does not happen with Chrome/Chromium on either MacOS or Linux.

The problem also happens on *some* other pages on CNN's site (but not all) and on *some* (but not all) pages of other sites but there doesn't seem to be a pattern that explains which URLs exhibit it and which don't. This suggests that it's not privacy settings or extensions or anything like that, because there's no reason for those to vary from page to page within any one site.

If I'm VERY fast on hitting the "X" that stops a page loading/rendering while in progress, and I get the timing just right, I can catch it before the page/tab goes blank. So it appears that Firefox is in fact fetching all the content and can render it, but then for some reason is blanking the page/tab once that's done.

The attached screenshot shows what the problematic page (from step 2 above) looks like on Linux. On MacOS it's blank, so I didn't include a screenshot of that.

All the many links online to info on how to fix it is the same and none of it works. So it must all be part of the scam. Fucking horseshit. Can I say that?

Can someone tell me how to get rid of it in an actual human non fake way?

I get redirected to yahoo so I thought I could just check the add-ons to look for malware. No add-on showed up in Firefox. I guess I have to find the file somewhere in my Finder but I found nothing in LaunchDaemons, Application Help or any other folders where it might be located. Some people on the internet said that you should look in prefs in Firefox but there is not anything suspicious. How can I delete the redirect virus?

I am getting what seems to be random image or graphical corruption on some images. I first noticed this with a few favicons. Sometimes they would show corrupted, other times they would load properly. I also have now seen it on a webpage as shown in the attached image (percentage counter). The corruption seems to be of the same type, square with patterned lines of color. It seems to be some sort of rendering issue. The same page renders without corruption inside other browsers, so it is Firefox-specific. Any help much appreciated!

Up until about a week ago, I could use Office 365 (and namely Outlook 365) without any issue. Then a few weeks ago, typing on firefox (MacOS) misses keys, space's don't work, and there will be a random new emails that will open. There is nothing under the keys, nor is there anything under the control or space buttons hindering use.

When I drag/drop or try to upload a file, it won't attach to the email. When force closing, the attachment issue might (keywork might) remedy itself for a minute, but then returns.

The above issues only exist on Outlook 365 on Firefox. I do not have any of the issues when on Chrome or Safari, not any of the apps on my macbook.

Feels Firefox specific due to no issues elsewhere (including while typing this!).

Thanks for any help!

I brought a new system with latest OS Big Sur, I'm using Firefox v49.1 (required version) for my official purpose. So I installed this version in my Mac and it works smoothly, suddenly it quits and showing crash alert. I reinstalled again and again, but it's not worked. I fed up with this issue. Please guide me to solve this. Previously I was using Mac with High Sierra OS. That time I haven't face this issue ever.
