Hello,

since yesterday after closing FF to restart, I encountered a problem. Everytime, when I try to open FF, it says that the profile isn´t available or not accessible.

I tried already to rename in /library/Application Support/Firefox, Profiles.ini -> Profiles.iniOLD and the folder Profiles -> ProfilesOLD.

As well I tried to call the Profile Manager from terminal using the below commands, since FF isn´t open. /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin -P /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox -ProfileManager

No matter, whether I rename the profile.ini or try to call the profile manager. Each time I get the same warning, that the profile isn´t available.

Since I tried every possible solution, which I could find on the help pages, I hope to find help from the community.

best regards Corey

On Win 10 / Firefox 91.0 I keep getting a popup saying I need to update FF with options to download or dismiss. When I go to "about FF" I am told I am current. This occurs about once a day no matter which option I choose. I have restarted FF several times for other reasons but the popup still occurs frequently.

I needed to have Windows 10 wiped and reinstalled from my laptop, and the guy who did it cloned my files to save everything. I saw instructions on another post on how to find the bookmarks file under Profile, but it didn't do anything after confirming that it would wipe out all current bookmarks. What am I doing wrong?

Hello,

I have a PC with Windows Seven, and a local network 1Gb/s (wired, no Wifi) with a NAS. When Firefox is open, the speed of my local network slow down. It takes about 30 seconds to open a big picture on the NAS when Firefox is open, and 0.5 s when Firefox is closed. Same thing for video. I can't read a video when Firefox is open. With Chrome or other browser all is ok... Firefox version is 91.0.2 64 bits, but same issue with previous version.

I have made a new profile, a new install of Firefox, shut down my firewall and Antivirus, Opening Firefox in safe mode, repair Firefox, but no effect...

Any help will be extremely appreciated!

Thanks!

iMac macOS 11.5 Firefox 90.0.2

Firefox pretty much crashed every time I quit. Doesn't matter if I'm looking at a web page or close all windows before quitting.

Restarting in Trouble Shoot mode doesn't help either.

The cause seems to be synchronisation - if I sign out of my account and no longer synchronise, the problem goes away and I can quit without Firefox crashing.

Hello, since quite some time now, I've got a problem with some websites, https://www.20minutes.fr/ among them. With other website, it's all good.

In safe mode, the display is good, but I can't seem to find the responsible for this problem. Here's two picture to show you the problem. It's the same article, one in safe mode, the other one in normal mode

I've tried to run Firefox without any add-on, but, it's the same. My é and è, and à are gone... And it's not on every website, just a few ones.

I've also tried to clean firefox, the problem remains.


Thanks in advance for your time.

I tried several things to try and isolate this issue, but all to no avail. The file does exist, and loads in the previous version of Firefox.

Any help would be greatly appreciate.

This option is not available in my browser version; thus, I'm hoping there's a newer workaround for this.

Hi there, I'm having trouble opening firefox that suddenly didn't open after I've used it as usual. When I've closed it, I've put the macbook on sleep mode and then reopen it after 10 minutes and tried to open firefox as always. It didn't. I'm trying to figure it out and I've followed all the possible paths on Mozzilla's support and others blogs, but none of them worked out. I've tried also to uninstall and re install firefox from scratch, but nothing happens: I still get the message. At this point I don't care if I need a fresh start, I have a bookmark's backups so, how can I really uninstall Firefox and install it from the beginning? Is there a hidden folder I'm missing? Thank you in advance

Upon the subject action, Windows 10 takes a system/memory dump, sends it to Microsoft, and automatically restarts. Firefox appears to be initializing for about 3 seconds (after clicking its shortcut) and then the crash occurs. The display of the initial Firefox landing page is not obtained.

The blue screen of death (BSOD) has this message: KMODE EXCEPTION NOT HANDLED

Also, the networking software (NETGEAR) is rendered inoperable and must be re-installed upon Windows restart. Otherwise, my system is stable. Maintenance is regularly applied as it becomes available.

Firefox was a delight to use. But now not so much, as it's unavailable as described above.

If anyone has a fix, or a suggestion for obtaining one, it would be gratefully appreciated. Thanks!
