My wife called me in this afternoon when big red error message popped up "saying" it is a red alert and the web page used Apple's logo on it, said the old 2011 iMac, OS 10.10.5 Yosemite, is "blocked" and has a virus. It had an 877 phone number to call but we failed to write it down. She did nothing after that. When I saw that I pressed the red window page kill button, upper left. Got the rotating rainbow ball. . . computer working overtime. Next, Command-W to kill the webpage, nada. Finally, pressed the hardware ON/OFF button behind left side of screen. On SAFE restart I opened my account not hers and found Firefox had thin, white, flashing lines across the tab bar area(full width) and tabs were flashing individually. Every time you open a tab, this happens or possibly when it is accessing. So, I upgraded Firefox, leaving the OLD version intact. Upgrade I NOW notice is the 64 bit version.

Is there a fix out there? or, is this thing "infected" with the CCP virus or something? Fix for it?

I will shut down and re-open the old version and see if it still happens and post an update here.

I just installed the esr version of Firefox. I did not think that I would lose all my bookmarks, add-on, etc. Is there a way to revert back to the standard version with all my old data? Or in looking at the profiles I see a default profile, a default-esr profile, and a default-release profile. This latter profile seems to have my old data when I open the folders and look around. However, when I try to open that profile in new window it says something about opening an old version and losing data and creating a new profile. When I do that, I still get a fresh browser with none of my data.

Hello,

since the last update to 84.0.2 firefox opens ~30 closed tabs again after s short time period. When I close the tabs they reappear after a short period again.

I disabled the sync feature, but that does not help.

Does anyone have an idea and can point me to the right direction?

A while ago, I carefully archived my Firefox 76 passwords as a csv file with PasswordExporter. Somehow, my Lockwise account got disabled so I don't have the option of just downloading them anymore. So my question is, how do I IMPORT that csv password file into my Firefox? I believe Lockwise used to have the option ofimporting from a file, but that option doesn't appear anymore.

Address Autofill VANISHED!

After wiping my Mozilla Firefox profile data everywhere, including AppData Local and Roaming profile directories, Firefox autofill stopped saving and/or synchronizing my address information. The address autofill options disappeared entirely from Firefox "Privacy & Security" section. I checked about:config, which had "services.sync.engine.addresses" and "services.sync.engine.addresses.available" set to "False". I set them to "True", but that only restored the address synchronizing setting in Firefox "Sync" section, not in "Privacy & Security" section. Syncing did not restore the address autofill options for "Privacy & Security" section and neither did changing other autofill and address-related entries in about:config. Starting a fresh new profile yet again didn't help.

Could this be caused by network-wide block of "location.services.mozilla.com" ? That domain became blocked a while back and there was no way around it, not even with DNS-over-HTTPS, but back then address autofill was working just fine without accessing that domain.

How can I bring back the address autofill portion of "Privacy & Security" section???

Is there any way to temporarily disable Firefox (and Thunderbird) update reminders? Mozilla seems to be updating its software so often that I'm getting too many reminders and it's interfering with my work flow. I understand the need to keep software up to date as often as possible but this has now got ridiculous, and I am on the verge of changing my default browser from Firefox to Safari, Chrome or Vivaldi. Please stop forcing every little tiny update onto your users!

Or is there some sneaky little way I haven't noticed under Preferences which already does enable me to do this?

Hello first time poster, going to try this out and see if it works. My problem no internet why am I asking for help here, I am at wits end grabbing at straws. I am suspicious that Firefox 78.6.0esr(64-bit) Addons: Noscripts, Https everywhere and Privacy badger, is not playing nice with my Alcatel linkhub HH41.(cat4 router, turbohub, a mobile router that uses a sim card) When I log on to the linkhub web management page (http://192.168.1.1/index.html#/index) Firefox, all addons shut down, has a lock icon with a red line through it in front of the address bar. clicking on the lock reveals "You are not securely connected to this site" At this page under the address bar on the left is " ? You must logon to this network before you can access the internet" on the opposite side of the page on the right there is a radio button stating "open network login page" Clicking the radio button brings me to https://detectportal.firefox.com/success.txt but the " ? You must logon to this network before you can access the internet" remains, the only difference is in the top left hand corner of the main pane is the word success in lower case.

Spent 2.5hrs on the phone with bell yesterday, the first thing I told them was the linkhub's LAN/WAN indicator light was flashing, they didn't seem to care.

I'm almost ready to trash this thing I bought new from bell about a years ago. unless somebody has solved the same problem. I'm open to knowledgeable suggestions.

I have a quick question, whenever I open Firefox - it opens to it being 'Restore Down' or as the smaller window. And even when I full size it and try to restore previous session, it changes it to being the smaller window... I'm just really confused as this has been bothering me for a little bit.

I am trying to restore an old collection of bookmarks that I had accumulated. I ran a manual backup of data which included my Firefox folder. I've put off restoring the data, but now I have two separate sets of bookmarks--both important to me. I am a technically inclined person.

If I use the last of the old automated bookmark backup folders in my Firefox profile, will it delete all of my current bookmarks? If so, what is the best method of combining these two sets of bookmarks?

Merry Christmas,

When I try to sign in to Google services in Mozilla Firefox, I get redirected to University of Michigan's weblogin site/application. Even when I type gmail.com directly into the URL bar and press entire, I am redirected. The site I get redirected to is as follows, although I do not recommend following the link unless you know what you are doing:

https://weblogin.umich.edu/?cosign-shibboleth.umich.edu&https://shibboleth.umich.edu/idp/Authn/RemoteUser?conversation=e2s1

I have already tried going into Mozilla Firefox preferences and selecting Manage Data under the option to clear the cache and data. How do I remove the UMich's weblogin redirect?
