Until recently, when I started typing in the address bar, FF was offering suggestions that were clearly based on addresses I had gone to in the past and seemed remarkably prescient about where I wanted to go. For example, if I typed the name of my hosting service, Seanet, one of the top 2 or 3 choices would be Seanet's login page.

Now, if I type "sean" for example, I get a bunch of irrelevant stuff ("sean connery") and about 10 lines down, it says "firefox suggests" and one of those is the login page. I ran into an article talking about how to change settings under privacy/address bar, but those don't affect this behavior. They change what might be the source of suggestions, and I limited it to browsing history, and that didn't help at all.

Maybe this is something that can't be fixed, but things were easier when FF listed very near the top the actual addresses I went to. Not all have deteriorated, e.g. (to reveal stuff about me) typing "x" gets xkcd.com as the first suggestion, and typing "e" gets explainxkcd.com as the first (sorry, sometimes I don't get the computer references and need an explanation).

Any help would be appreciated.

I would like to create a FireFox shortcut in the Windows 10 Startup folder so FireFox loads automatically at boot time, in a minimized Window (or better yet, the system tray). There does not appear to be any way to make this happen. I have searched pretty extensively. If there is a way, I'd like to hear about it. If there isn't, I would like to suggest it as a feature for future development.

Only on Firefox (not Chrome, for example) animated gifs and videos on Twitter will not display -- they instead show a black screen. When paused or not yet played, there is a visible image, but as soon as I press play, it goes to black. The audio on a video will play just fine, but the screen/image is still black.

I have checked my graphics drivers for updates and they are all up-to-date. Also the gifs/videos play just fine if I use Chrome.

Firefox is up to date. I'm on v 93.0 (64-bit).

When I click in the URL search bar, a list of the most common sites appears, with one glaring omission, eBay!

All my other frequent website appear, like bbc.co.uk and youtube.com and scan.co.uk etc etc, but ebay.co.uk is always missing despite my visiting the site at least 3 times a day.

Any ideas as to why please?

Cheers, John.

I am constantly getting a notice at the top of the screen that says "Mozilla is not responding". It all stalls and then eventually, Mozilla apparently starts to respond and it goes to the page I choose. I have kept up with all the updates and am not a huge online person in the first place. Why does this happen? It is so often, I am tempted to change browsers.

Starting a few weeks ago firefox refuses to play video from netflix and prime video. I've googled a bit, but nothing worked. Using firefox 93.0 on windows 10, here is what I tried so far (not necessarily in that order):

  • Refresh page
  • Restart PC
  • clear cache
  • disable extensions
  • run in troubleshoot mode
  • refresh firefox profile
  • try a new firefox profile
  • reinstall firefox
  • checked whether the drm box is checked/checked and unchecked it a few times
  • reinstalled widevine
  • checked whether privacy.resistFingerprinting is false, since someone apparently had a netflix error related to that setting

Probably forgot some. Also works fine on other browsers, just thought it was odd.

Here is what the errors in the debugger say:

The oddest thing happened today. Maybe not that odd based on other posts. I've always had Adobe Acrobat as my default PDF reader. For whatever reason, this afternoon, it changed itself back to FF reader. I don't know how that happened. One moment it was working fine and then it wasn't. I reset it back to Adobe. Any explanation as to why it would change itself? Thanks

Hi,

I have been using Firefox sync for many years now. I just got a new computer and when I tried to connect with my account, I received a message saying Firefox has locked my account.

Would you please fix this asap? I use your browser to work and not having my account back would force me to switch to Chromium, which I don't want to. Please note my account and my email address are both legit. Thanks

Sorry, I suspect this is an often asked question, but after endless searching on this site, and trying many old solutions, I still can not create, save, and use a User Profile. [See uploaded photo]

First, when I explore my C:\Users\Bud Parker\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles folder I find empty folders named for the many times I have attempted to recreate a usable Firefox profile. There is no JSON File or anything else in any of the folders. Hence, it appears I cannot save a created profile. Of course, if it isn't saved in the appropriate location - I'm dead in the water.

I tried saving one on my Desktop and using it, all to no avail. In past, I've run some aggressive maintenance programs cleaning up Windows, but I could always enter Firefox. Of course, that does not mean it didn't finally occur...

By the way, I can use a Portable version of Firefox, just not an installed version. I completely uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it with the current version. Still nothing.

So, now I ask the Mozilla Brain Trust for assistance. Let me say in advance that I appreciate you reading and thinking about this,

Bud
