For years I have been using Firefox to log into Microsoft office for emails with no problems. Beginning yesterday, Firefox logs in OK, but when it tries to open my mailbox it gets stuck in some sort of loop. The top left corner message says "working", the bottom left corner message alternates rapidly between "sending ..." and 'waiting ..." This goes on forever: sending ... waiting ... sending ... waiting ,,, Years ago I configured Thunderbird to also log into my mailbox, and this continues to work OK. Access to all other sites that I visit seems to be OK, so I assume that Office changed something that Firefox is unhappy about. I use Windows XP SP3, Updating to a new operating system (say Windows 7) is not an option at the moment, I have too much important legacy software to abandon XP. I will be grateful for any suggestions as to what to do. Thank you.

I am trying to upload jpeg file to show....but it isn't uploading either file type. Sorry.

Again, the file is a .dfu type. Firefox can't download it in that format. It is asking me to pick a file type. There is none on the list that work for .dfu.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

This issue has been happening for years, through several upgrades. Finally tired and frustrated enough to write about it now.

I'll close down Firefox, and when I re-open it, it gives me a window and tab scheme from hours (or days, or weeks) ago, not the most recent one that was just shut down. In other words, I'll have shut down certain tabs hours (or days) before, but they reappear when I restart Firefox, and the ones that actually were open, are nowhere to be found. It's like Firefox takes a snapshot whenever it feels like it, but not when I am shutting it down.

What I've had to do to get Firefox to open up from the last section *exactly* how I left it last is go into Windows 7 Process Manager and shut down Firefox from there. Then, when I restart Firefox, it gives me the "Oops, shut down last time didn't go so well..." apology, but at least when I click through, it opens up my desktop exactly how I left it previously.

It seems pretty stupid that I have to do this, so I am hoping someone can enlighten me as to what I am doing wrong.

Way way back (like version 17 or so), it was easy to set Firefox so that PDFs opened --

   -- in Adobe Acrobat, in the tab

I had version 50 or so set up this way, and then accidentally "updated" and had to reinstall from scratch.

I have done

    Options > Applications > PDF > open in Adobe Acrobat

That gets me less than I want -- when I open a PDF, I get --

    open a new tab
    download the PDF through "save as" dialog box, and
    leave the new tab white

What I want is what I used to get in the early 2000s --

   -- the PDF open, in the tab, in Adobe Acrobat
   -- with the URL of the PDF in the address bar

Thank you

Sorry, but formatting doesn't hold up in this text box.

Most of what I see is Greek to me, but maybe it means something to you.

BTW, I am running Windows 10 64-bit with the most frequent version of the Tor Firefox Browser (7.5.6 (based on Mozilla Firefox 52.9.0) (32-bit)).

Please let me know if you have any suggestions or ideas on how to correct this problem.

So I had my firefox update to ESR 60, and I restored my old browser and profile from backup. Details of that are here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1232392


The problem? I am having trouble with Local Storage.

I tried restoring different profiles from different days from Time Machine. I managed to get one where things seemed to work. Until I quit and restarted firefox.


Mega (mega.nz) tells me: Sorry, we were unable to initialize the browser's local storage, either you're using an outdated/misconfigured browser or it's something from our side.

If you think it's our fault, please report the issue back to us.

Reason: [Exception... "File error: Corrupted" nsresult: "0x8052000b (NS_ERROR_FILE_CORRUPTED)" location: "JS frame :: https://mega.nz/secureboot.js?r=1536229029 :: <TOP_LEVEL> :: line 331" data: no] Browser: mozilla/5.0 (macintosh; intel mac os x 10.9; rv:52.0) gecko/20100101 firefox/52.0

Trimps (trimps.github.io) tells me:

Your browser is preventing Trimps from accessing localStorage, and you will not be able to save or load your progress. Please check your browser settings to ensure that 3rd party cookies are not disabled, and that you're not using any addons that might interrupt storage!

AutoSave has been disabled to prevent damage to your save. If you previously had a save file, it should still be waiting for you once you fix your browser settings.

Antimatter dimensions (ivark.github.io) just shows me a brand-new game, 9 months of progress lost.

Preferences -> advanced only lists 5 sites with offline data, all of them listed with 0 bytes. Two of these are twitter, the other three are unknown.

Profile_dir/storage has three folders -- temporary, default, permanent -- and inside there are lots of folders for various websites. But I don't see one for either github.io site. Permissions on these folders are normal. But the dates are mostly OLD.

But, only mostly. If I just open firefox, and then close a minute or two later, a bunch of them are updated to "now". Even if I am not visiting the site in question.

I uninstalled Kaspersky a week ago and checked to ensure that there were no cookies or add-ons or plug-ins under that name remaining anywhere. All files, traces, and influences of Kaspersky should be gone. But some (only some) websites are continuing to route through Kaspersky, as evidenced by the URL that comes up at the bottom of the screen during the connection. The rerouting is preventing me from interacting with those sites. What else can I do to wipe out Kaspersky and stop anything from routing there? Are there any settings in Firefox that can be changed to circumvent that? Thank you!
