Whenever soundcloud opens without signing in, the website works fine and when signing into my account, the website functions normally but when i refresh my browser, the website goes blank and then displays an error shortly afterwords. I had done every single thing to get this website working from disabling extensions as i have blocksite installed which i assumed was the culprit but nothing fixed, i used safe mode/troubleshoot mode but nothing fixed, i did a full uninstall of firefox (uninstalling firefox and deleting firefox data from application support on macos) and still, nothing worked and many more. the only thing that did work was clearing cookies and site data but that also signed me out of soundcloud and using incognito mode.

Is there any definitive way of fixing this as i use soundcloud on a daily basis and this is a massive annoyance for me to deal with?

Ive included screenshots, first two are when my account was signed in and the last is when i delete the cookies and site data, where i have been signed out of soundcloud.

First of all, let me just say that I love Firefox and refuse to use any other browsers

In my profession, I need to use Adobe products - somehow, the new Adobe Express (beta) will not run on Firefox browser, it run with no problems on Microsoft Edge and Chrome.

Do you have any idea what might have cause this issue? I understand that Adobe Express (beta) will go live soon, and it will be terrible that I couldn't continue on Firefox browser, I wonder if you can have Firefox developers take a look and maybe figure out with Adobe?

Thanks for listening and hope that you'll find a solution

This is a duplicate question because it was not solved the last time, and there were no other replies.

1. Works on all other browsers, but Firefox plays only audio and a blurry video (see screenshot). 2. PC is equipped with a beefy i9-13700 and RTX 4080; even with that CPU, disabling hardware acceleration eats up almost 25-30% CPU and it is not practical to watch videos that way. 3. Is this bug really not that common? Is it just me and that's why there's no traction for fixing this bug? 4. How do I elevate this request so someone takes action, in case we find no solution in this thread?

hello firefox heroes,

I am looking for a way to prevent disabling an addon.

The addon is secondary, but for the sake of completeness: it's about the web blocker LeechBlock.

It was intended as an alternative to the web blocker ColdTurkey, but unlike ColdTurkey, which does not work for Linux systems, there is no password protection to prevent disabling and/or uninstalling the addon. Thus, it is quite easy to get distracted even though you don't really want to.

does anyone know a solution?

migrating browser data to new laptop

More than four years ago I created a mozzilla account on my work laptop, in hope of easier migration, syncing between devices, and similar promises. I signed into the account, and have been happily using Firefox ever since, with that 1 time login, thanks for that.

Recently I got a new work laptop and I wanted to use syncing, but I unfortunately had to realise that I do not remember the password I gave 4 years ago (since I was never once prompted to provide it again). So I tried to reset my password. Up until this point I was never warned, that one e-mail account provided would not be enough for password resets.

I tried providing a secondary e-mail address, but that doesn't give me a password reset option. I also tried activating 2fa according to the tutorial, with two different apps (authy and google authenticator) but the browser always says invalid key, so I failed activating 2fa. I tried password reset, but it says I will lose all the data, I would like to sync, so that is not a reasonable option... I tried to manually migrate my profile over to the new laptop, by replacing "Profiles" folder contents on the new laptop, but that just makes Firefox unable to start even.

So I am at my wits end, and begging for help. Looked at reddit posts on how to get browse data to new pc and official support faq-s but I do not see a solution.

I am still signed in, on the old work laptop, that is where I'm writing this plea for help from.

I would really love to recover my account and sync it to the new device.

After typing it out I realize how "social engineeringy/hacky" this message sounds. But I'm willing to prove my identity, by any means necessary, and the account mail address is my name (that is also on my national id card).

Please help me, or advise me how to proceed and reset my password without losing all my data.

About 2 or 3 updates ago...after the update I can not clear all my web browsing history. I have my homepage set to Firefox's " about:preferences#privacy " I usually clear all the ' stored cookies, site data ' through the " Clear Data' button. Have it set to clear ALL data. Also clear " History " data and too ALL data.

Then I use " CCleaner " to clear any data that might have been left on my PC. 
It/CCleaner too has settings to clean Firefox's Cache, history, cookies, download history, session and more which use to work very well on clearing all data of web browsing.   That doesn't do it anymore. 
 After all the effort I go through after closing Firefox to delete/eliminate all my browsing history... through the manual tic-buttons IN Firefox... AND with the settings to clear cookies, site data and history upon closing.  PLUS using CCleaner.  
I ALSO close down/disable my 'Wireless Network' modem EVERY TIME I close Firefox  because I've had programs... AV program... that had stupid-non-disabling auto update that would connect... on it's own... to the net and not only check for it's update but downloads updates on every program update-able.
 But with all the work and precautions....
NOW when I click on Firefox to start a whole new session... remember all the moves I take AFTER the last session... It/Firefox asks if I want to continue with my last session and shows the sites I was at the last time.
If there is anyway to get... MY PRIVACY BACK!!! ... I would LOVE to hear about it.
I would LOVE to have my "Firefox 2.0. " back where/when there were no problems.

How do I stop Firefox from out of control data clearing? There is a window under Privacy & Security / History / Clear History that opens a window that allows a user, in theory, to choose which components to clear (cookies, cache, etc.) In that window is a pull down menu to specify the time range to clear. A screen shot of that is attached. I do NOT want my cookies cleared unless I say so. I do not want cookies or some of the other components cleared from the last hour, I don't want them cleared from the last two hours or the last four hours or today. (And the "Everything" reference does not make sense syntactically in this setting.) A screen shot of that menu is attached.

It does not matter if I uncheck one or all of those boxes by cookies, cache, etc. When I open the browser the next time, they are checked again -- AND THE MOFO COOKIES HAVE TO BE MANAGED AGAIN, ETC., ETC., ETC.

What have a setting if Firefox is going to arbitrarily clear everything immediately or once and hour or by some criterion it has not revealed to the user -- nor has informed the user exists?

Anyone have any thoughts on a work-around?

Thanks.

After the Firefox update to 114.0.2 on my WIndows 10 desktop computer, the display of the Google Voice website became all garbled and vertical scrolling stopped working, making it impossible to read new next messages. My laptop, which has been turned off and has not taken the update, is still running the previous version and does not have the problem. I'm wondering if others have had the same issue.

I see this issue posted in other questions but none of the solutions given works. For one, the click on items you talk about don't exist, like the "Firefox Options and/or Preference" is no where to be found, top left click on Firefox Icon or top right bars. The right click button does not work in your browser at all. I don't have this issue on my work computer or my work laptop and they are running the same version, 1140.1. I am use to: Right clicking Firefox icon in tool bar and a menu coming up that allows for several choices. Right clicking in the top bar with page tabs and being able to put the bookmark menu bar up permanently (the main reason I use Firefox, ease of accessing bookmarks which Chrome and IE make ridiculously difficult}. How do I get functionality of my right click back?

Hi Folks, I recently downloaded and installed firefox-114.0.1 to replace the aging CentOS 7 package. Install went fine, browser seems to be working great. But now, every few minutes, I get a dialog box popping up titled "Unlock keyring" asking me to "Enter password to unlock"

Completely obnoxious - you can't ignore it. It steals focus from whatever you were doing. You can click somewhere else end get the mouse focus back, but the keyboard focus is stuck to the dialog until you close it.

I know that KDE has some sort of keyring feature, but I've never used it and I've tried to disable it in settings.

I think it must somehow be related to the firefox install, because I never had it happen until this install yesterday.

Suggestions? I'm about ready to revert to the prehistoric v78 Thanks

Hey, hope you're well

I'd prefer opening new tabs to happen in the background, so I can stay on the original page.

So far, Firefox seems to open new links and will switch to them immediately, automatically.

I checked in settings, and found the setting in the attached image.

I found that whether this setting was checked or unchecked, the behavior remained the same.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance
