I was suddenly having problems viewing YouTube videos (black screen) and Firefox support suggested refreshing Firefox (version 42), which I did. What a mistake. None of my add-ons, bookmarks, passwords, etc migrated. So I followed instructions how to copy paste those files from my previous profile in to the new one via ?, troubleshoot, view profile. The problem is, the current profile shows all the files associated with my passwords (key?db and logins.json) are there, but when I go to "options>privacy>passwords" NONE of them appear. I had the profile from the day before I refreshed, so I'm sure that's the most up-to-date....SO, I copied that logins.json file and pasted it into the current profile, and still NO PASSWORDS. I figured out how recover all my bookmarks, but I NEED my passwords. Can anybody help? I still can't figure out why Youtube videos suddenly won't play, when they did last week! Of COURSE, I have the latest version of Adobe Flash installed: been there done that. I'm at my wits end as I've been at Firefox support pages for 2 days straight and nothing has worked that's been suggested.

When browsing how can you duplicate the tab or page? For instance if I'm doing something and I want to search further but I don't want to lose my place so on internet explorer I can't duplicate the page by right clicking. I don't see that on firefox. Is that not an option? This is one reason I use internet explorer over firefox however firefox works better with certain things like my online classes. Thanks.

Hi,

FF 42.0 / Windows 7 64-bit

I have a problem with installing any extension that requires browser restart (for example Web Developer Toolbar). Addons that do not require browser restart (like firebug, adblock plus) are installed with no issues. When I go to about:addons search for addon, click install, it gets installed with no error messages but after I restart the browser it's simply not installed. By the way this problem has every windows workstation I checked in my company (Thomson-Reuters, Gdynia) and there is always the same problem even after fresh FF installation so it's not related to my specific laptop. I checked with local IT but they have no idea what the reason of that problem could be. This is not officially supported browser so it's not their duty to troubleshoot it. They just checked if the problem reoccurs when addon is installed with antivirus disabled and yes - with disabled antivirus software the problem still exists. I checked https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/unable-install-add-ons-extensions-or-themes but none of the cases from above-mentioned KBs seem to be relevant to my problem. I'm not power Firefox user so I would like kindly ask for advice how the problem could be troubleshooted: -are there any specific settings in about:config I should look into? -are there any certificates that could have been replaced on a corporate machine and are required for addon installation? -any specific entries in configuration files that I should check before and after the browser restart? -anything else..

Regards, Rafał

Every day around 9:30 PM, browsing the web becomes impossible. nearly every site I visit brings up a This Connection Is Untrusted page. I have tried using different browsers and Different Devices. Even my 3DS doesn't work. This has lead me to believe that the problem is either with the modem or my service provider. I checked the certificate of Google via chrome://pippki/content/exceptionDialog.xul, and it read ISSUED TO Common Name (CN) security.frontier.com Organization (O) security.frontier.com and when I checked it now, it reads ISSUED TO Common Name (CN) www.google.com Organization (O) Google Inc I don't know what fixes this problem since the problem stops at different times. It started around when I installed AVG, so I tried uninstalling it, but the problem didn't stop. While I'm fairly certain the problem isn't related to Firefox, this is one of the sites that I am able to visit when this problem occurs. I have tried manually adding the exception so I could bypass the Untrusted Connection page, but the page never loads and the next time it happens, the page is there again anyway.

I have created a couple of small pages that i have embedded into another web site. The embedded pages wont display on that site in FireFox but works on Chrome with no problem. How can I fix this so others on FireFox can view these embedded pages? I didn't know it couldn't be displayed until tonight and I have been looking for a fix since I was told. Some may see a solid white box and others see a grey box with a plugin is needed to view this content. However, if I view the pages I created on the server they work fine in FireFox. Just not when embedded into another web site. I'm stumped...

Why can’t I disable “restore previous session”?

Starting a few days ago, about 75% of the time I open my browser, the option to restore the previous session is there but history is not. I have my preferences set to erase all history upon closing the browser. It never did this before. However, it is inconsistent. Sometimes, when I click on it, my start page reloads and "restore previous session" disappears. Other times, my previous tabs open up if I click on it. If I close the browser and open it two to four times, "restore previous session" finally disappears. I have my preferences set to erase everything when I close Firefox but a few times, not only was “restore previous session” available but my history was not erased. I have checked those preferences repeatedly.

The day this started, I did extensive web searches to find a solution. I entered about:config and set the crash recovery to False, as recommended (browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash). Obviously, this did not solve the problem. Earlier today, I went to Show Folder in Troubleshooting and deleted two prefs.js files that Mozilla recommended to get rid of when preferences won't stick. After I did this, I opened my browser on about four occasions and "restore previous session" did not appear. I thought I had fixed the problem. Nope. Just now, I had a terrible shock. "Restore previous session" was there again and when I clicked on it, it loaded my Gmail Inbox, which I had definitely signed out of earlier. I wasn't even prompted to log in.

I can understand it giving me the login page for Gmail but to open up my Inbox is horrifying! I do three malware and virus scans on my PC every day. I recently did a special scan that said my PC was not vulnerable to being hacked and had good security.

I just checked that Show Folder and there is a new file that was not there four hours ago: prefs.js. The other two that I deleted earlier today are still in my Recycle Bin so I could restore them. They are: prefs-1.js and prefs.js I have not deleted any more prefs.js files. The Mozilla help page said Firefox might create a new prefs.js file if it needs it. So why tell us to delete it to stop this annoying problem?

After I deleted the prefs.js files, I went into Privacy to make sure my settings were okay. As I said, I had no problem the first three or four times I opened the browser after both deleting the prefs.js files and checking my preferences. This new issue with it opening my Gmail Inbox happened just now. By the way, a while back, I deleted (but still have it in the Recycle Bin) a user.js file to stop web addresses from remaining in the Location bar after closing my browser. If this were the problem, I would have had this issue a long time ago, not in the last few days.

I refreshed Firefox, reset my preferences, and this did not fix the problem. I made sure the browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash was still set to False. I also set my privacy level from 0 to 2 with about:config (browser.sessionstore.privacy_level). I lost the link of where I read to do this.

I am absolutely fed up with this. Why doesn’t Firefox just make it simple and give us the option of shutting off the restore feature if we want to? Obviously, if you set it to Private Browsing, this prevents the restore previous session option from appearing. However, it means that you have no history while browsing and this is not something I want. I have to have my history as I refer to it all the time. The only thing I can think of to prevent anyone from seeing my browsing and history but to have my history available as I’m browsing is to clear everything but cookies under Clear Recent History. Ridiculous!

Just now, I checked and the crash configuration was back to True. I set it to False again. It seems, all of a sudden, I can’t get any settings to take hold in Firefox.

All I know is a pop up came up and said that fire fox is running slow. Click to repair. I did. It froze, so I restarted my pc. and when I opened fire fox it asked me to pick a profile. I read two, both just a bunch of letters and numbers. I picked one and it started up as if it was a new download of fire fox with none of my stuff! What the hell happened? How do I get my old fire fox and stuff back?

Firefox won't submit a form, but other websites do

I have a form which submits in all cases in all browsers except Firefox. In some cases, the form will submit, but we are hitting an edge case where the form does not submit. FF isn't recognizing the submit action for some reason. The exact same steps work in other browsers (Chrome, Safari and IE).

My form has a "please wait..." loading indicator that correctly launches, but no network traffic is happening while this spins. It essentially hangs the page, since to the user it appears that it's being processed, but nothing was ever submitted to be processed.

Is there a known issue that a workaround exists for, or is this a new issue?

I'm running version 42.0 on a Mac; OS El Capitan. I ran through the troubleshooting steps prior to making this post; Safe Mode, disabled Plug-Ins, Signed out of my sync account, re-installed FF. Nothing made a difference.

Whenever I type, like commenting on posts, and I want to make the text bold or italic I try the normal ctrl+b for bold and ctrl+i for italic and such. When I try to make text bold or italic bookmarks appear. What keyboard codes make the text do what I want in Firefox? Codes for italics, bold, underline, strike-through, and any others you guys can think of would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

I keep getting a message that I need a security patch - the logo on the message looks like Firefox, but when the file shows up, (in the box which asks me if I want to save or run the download), it doesn't appear to be from Mozilla. It's always from some long web address that ends in filipinokisses.net or mychicken.com. When I check out the full addresses at Scam Advisor, I get a warning, but when I just put in the end of the address (like filipinokisses.net) it tells me it's okay. Usually, when I get notices of available updates and patches from providers, I go to the official website and get it directly there, rather than clicking on some pop-up, but I'm not finding anything about a patch at the mozilla website - nothing about a patch, but no warnings about a fake patch either, so I don't know what to think.
