A few days ago, whenever I download an attachment from my email(Yahoo), the tab crashes after I do so. Assuming this is a Frefox issue....but not positive...has happened repeatedly since. Very annoying.

Also, upon restart of Firefox yesterday, all my cookies were reset automatically. Had to re-log in everywhere. This never has happened before, without out me manually doing this.

Any idea what is going on?

Mozilla Firefox keeps crashing, mostly at startup and if I do manage to get it running it crashes after a while. Doesn't respond anymore, and even the crash reporter crashes. I have tried the following things:

Clean up FF Reinstall and refresh (last attempt included deleting the entire Mozilla folder in Program Files) several times Updated Windows Restarted laptop after every reinstall attempt

It won't open in troubleshoot mode.

I am running Windows 10 on a Lenovo Thinkpad 540 laptop.

Additionally, neither Chrome nor Edge will let me access the Mozilla.org website. I downloaded the custom installer on my phone and uploaded it in Mydrive to get in onto my laptop.

Funny detail: I am in Belgium. I was in Ireland for a week last week and it didn't happen once. Got back home and trouble was back.

My husband is having the same issues, by the way.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I've checked a couple of the "similar topics" before posting here. I'm not sure if I am having the same problem or something else.

Back Story: I have a "few" windows and tabs open in FireFox. I would finish what I was doing, shut down and then the next time I booted up and loaded FireFox, all sessions would be restored and all log ins honoured (kept). That is: I was still logged in.

(Moving to now) Yesterday I powered up and ALL sites were logged out. About 20 log ins were needed. Hmmmmm... gmail, and the rest.

"Ok... something happened. No problems, things should be ok from now. I've logged in, so all is sweet."

Today I power up: All logs ins lost. Had to go through it all again.

Gmail is throwing security alerts at me hand over fist. Yeah, that is good in some ways. I get that part. But I've logged in.

Seems - my thoughts - that the cookies aren't being saved. But why? I haven't touched them or their settings.

Yes, I did do a clean out of older cookies. But left the gmail ones, and other sites I know I use. I have `adblocker ultimate` installed.

Now I am logged in, if I open the `cookies` and look I should see them there for the sites to which I am logged in - yes?


To be clear: When I am done, I do NOT `exit` FireFox. All windows, tabs, sessions are left. I just shut down the machine. Then next time I load FireFox and they are re-loaded and log ins are maintained.

Hello, in last few days I notice that when you try to save web page that has title ending with .com or anything like that saved file has .com extension instead of htm. I often use this option and I'm sure it must be one of the latest updates that started to cause that. Any chance it gonna get fixed and Firefox start adding .htm after .com?

For example try saving page https://www.naturalnews.com/ its title is "Natural Health News and Scientific Discoveries - NaturalNews.com" and saved file has .com extension. I need to fix it everytime and add .htm manually.

Dual Monitors: Losing the Menu Bar on the second screen while in fullscreen on the first monitor.

Hi All,

I just started running a dual monitor set up on macOS 12.4. I have updated Firefox to version 102.0.1.

I'm running into an issue where if I want to have a video playing from a browser in full screen on one monitor, I lose the menu bar and access to the dock on the other monitor. I have set them up so that they behave as separate spaces but the issue persists. It should be noted that this only occurs when I'm trying to use the web browser on the second monitor. My impression of what's happening is the browser thinks that since it's in full screen on one monitor, it should be on the second screen as well. I want them both to act independently of one another and retain access to the menu bar and dock on the second screen.

I've trialed this with Brave Browser and Safari and neither of them have the same issue which leads me to believe with overwhelming probability that the issue I'm experiencing is isolated to Firefox.

I've included a screenshot from my second monitor. On my primary monitor I have a YouTube video in full screen. I think you can see from the screenshot that the Menu Bar has disappeared from the second display. I also have the Dock set to automatically hide and when the video is full screen on the primary monitor, the Dock will not un-hide itself on the second screen. Unfortunately clicking within the browser will not restore the Menu Bar and access to the Dock. Is this atypical behavior?

I appreciate whatever help you're able to provide.

THEN if I click on the FF icon in my dock, all the tabs and windows appear in a cascade of windows or tabs like bam, bam, bam.....

This happens on two MacBook Pros around 2016 vintage. This is a new behavior this week.

I'm animating a SVG by dragging the mouse that changes the <path d=""> attribute. When mouseUp I'm setting the <animate values="" > to animate from that dragging point and start the animation. This works fine. But if I want to drag it for a second time it looks like the animation has been set to <animate fill="freeze"> although it has been set to "remove". In other words, it looks like the attribute fill="remove" doenst work. I can drag the object (and alter the <path d=""> ) but it doenst show after the animation has been completed for the first time. It only plays the animation.

I have two Outlook accounts registered & one set as default. But, when I tried to setup my default in settings, Apps, default apps, email it only offers me Outlook.com (instead of my default choice) so automatically always selects the mail account I do not want! It used to work OK for years until I had a recent SSD failure & hence I need to reset it correctly. Your help page doesn't seem to tell me how to select the specific mail account I want (i.e. when you have more than one)? Please therefore tell me how to do that & also change your help notes accordingly.
