To help test some bugs in Firefox I installed Nightly a while ago alongside the regular Firefox.

Today when starting Nightly, it used the profile I use in the normal release Firefox, for work mostly. I exited almost immediately, but when I try to run the profile with regular Firefox, I get a warning that I'm using an older version of Firefox. See attached screenshot.

Is there a way to recover the profile?

Current FF version I have is 90.0.2 on Windows 64 bit.

Whenever I open my firefox browser (always up-to-date), certain add-on extensions specifically, IDM and Grammarly fail to load always. In order for them to load, I still need to go to the "manage extensions" then turn on-off in order for them to work. I have tried different solutions that this link provided link text but none of them worked. Can anyone offer a definite solution in my problem?

On any website--from YouTube to Wikipedia, and even support.mozilla.org I saw this bar flickering--pressing the arrow keys made it move like it would in a normal text field, like I was holding shift but without the blue highlights. It messed up with scrolling using page up/down, sometimes it'd mess with using the arrow keys to mess with YouTube volume, and just became a nuisance later on. Does anyone know how to turn it off?

Hi.

I'm a long time firefox user. The past few years, I have not been able to copy text from print preview. This is important to me, as I run a small business and need to copy order numbers from the print preview screen to keep my work flow going. I can do this in chrome, but cannot in firefox.

It is nothing I can copy from a website, as it is a link I click to open the invoice.

The only work around that I know of would be to print the pdf to a file, open the file, and copy it from there - but this is not acceptable because it is too time consuming.

If anyone has something that will work, it would be much appreciated.

I'm out of tricks here. Last night I updated Windows on my desktop (Windows 10) and after several hiccups and restarts the computer is operating correctly...except for Firefox. The browser window opens normally but clicking on any bookmark or typing a web addy manually does nothing...it just stays blank. When using a bookmark, no address propagates to the address bar. In an effort to fix this I have done Firefox refresh (a few times now), run Firefox in troubleshoot mode (a few times and at least once this caused Firefox to crash), uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox (twice, second time WITHOUT saving prior account settings), restarted computer and uninstalled adblocker.

Absolutely NO change from any of this. My laptop (Apple with Firefox) works fine and the desktop WILL browse just fine on MS Edge, so this is not a connectivity problem. Any ideas on fixing this would be greatly appreciated. TIA

When hit shift and click somewhere in the webpage or type something, the "Page Inpector" keep poping out (see attached screenshot), this is so annoying that I basically cannot type any capital letters. I have tried the option "Refresh Firefox", the browser seems to be set to default mode, but the issue still exsist. Tried for a new keyboard, the same. I searched the forum, but unfortunately cannot find a proper solution. Hope anyone can help me with this, otherwise I have to consider to change my default browser (which I really don't want to because of such a simple but annoying problem).

Thanks a lot for anyone could provide any suggestions !

I have Firefox on a couple of (Windows 10) PCs. This problem is happening on one of them. It has two profiles (users), and it's happening on both.

If I open Firefox, and then trying going to google.co.uk, or do any google related search, almost everytime there is an obvious 30-40s delay. Indeed, during this time I can even open up other web sites (immediate), and trying google.co.uk again, and delay continues to occur.

Opening up the Network Console in Firefox, the GET request can be seem and then like clockwork there is about a 41000ms delay until it then continues.

If I open in TroubleShoot mode, same issue.

If I open in a Private Window, the problem does NOT occur.

This problem does NOT happen on my other PCs with Firefox, or any other browser on the PC in question.

This is very frustrating :( You open firefox to do a google search and it takes tens of seconds to resolve (on the first attempt) :(

For about a month now I have had an issue with Firefox where suddenly the search bar (with Google search) stops working. I input text, press enter but nothing happens. No page is loaded. I see the google search URL that the browser is trying to reach, and I see in the network tool that the request is made but nothing appears after that. Page doesn't change and response is not registered in the network tool. Also, my GMail account tabs stop working, and trying to refresh them, GMail freezes while loading.

If I restart Firefox all starts working, until the problem starts happening again (can be minutes or hours, I guess it depends on usage)

Another colleague of mine has the exact same problem.

I tried with NO success: - Clearing all cache and data; - Disabling all extensions; - Running firefox in troubleshoot mode; - Refresh Firefox; - Complete uninstall, with profile folder removal and start from scratch; - Disabling hardware acceleration; - Setting "browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.improvesearch.handoffToAwesomebar" to false; - Disabling "network.http.http3.enabled"; - Setting Proxy to "No Proxy";

All works on another browsers.

Can someone advise on how to further troubleshoot and fix this issue?

Hello community,

Not really big issue but it make me crazy sometimes...

I use few sites from RU (yandex.ru) top level domain and some of them have a domains in other locations (for example COM, LT). With latest updates FF switching RU top level domain to local one (LT) in the address bar dropdown.

There was an update around 5 months ago which make this change. And Later (maybe month ago) it was returned to normal behavior (domain was the one I using frequently). Now with latest update it happens again :(

I have 2 PCs, I updated FF at one of them and I get this behavior back. The other one have outdated version and there is no domain swap (version 89.0.2, Windows at both PCs)

FF is getting like IE IMO, with all the awkwardness to remove unwanted Bloatware. For an 'Ordinary User'. Could some knowledgeable FF user please explain, in language I can understand, English, but not very Tech Savvy) how I remove Pocket from the browser Thanks.

Hello,

I updated firefox and it's now hard to tell when one tab ends and another begins when you have multiple inactive tabs next to each other, which is a major annoyance.

The way to solve this would be to have the inactive tabs have a border around them like the active tab, have them have a different background color from the toolbar, or otherwise have some kind of separator between them. I saw another answer that gave a temporary solution, but the same answer said the solution was going to stop working in a future update. Is there a permanent solution?

After the last update to version 90.0, I can't continue to use firefox browser. The problem is about opening google sites (youtube, gmail). Other websites seems to work normal, but I can't open youtube and gmail now (google.com itself works heavily). When I type url and click enter, it takes so much time to load, often not loading the site or partially load. Other browsers installed on the same system works normally with the "problematic" websites. I tried hard reload (ctrl+f5), cleaning all browser data, and uninstalling and reinstalling. None of the mentioned actions helped. Please help me to identify and solve the issue.
