Hello,

Thunderbird got updated to 78.12.0 by Mozilla Maintenance Service this morning and I believe Firefox got uninstalled by accident during the process.

The reason I think it got deleted by MMS is because in `C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox` I could see a single file named `tobedeleted` and when I read the log located at `C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Maintenance Service\UpdateLogs`, the last two lines were : NS_main: unable to remove directory: tobedeleted, err: 41 NS_main: directory will be removed on OS reboot: tobedeleted

Luckily my `%APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles` were not affected by this issue and I managed to recover my data by reinstalling Firefox.

Best regards,

I tried to copying and pasting the email code in and it says wrong code try again. I have tried multiple times and it won't work. Then I tried forget password and tried to use a recovery code to reset my account in an attempt to restart it like a computer but that does not work. I cannot add 2AF to my account. Any help appreciated. It also seems to be recognizing a email that I no longer use. I have had this problem in the past but ignored.

Instead, I have a plain white background image. Right clicking on it gives me desktop menu options. To close the web browser, I have to right click the program in the taskbar. This is also not just firefox. Chrome and Edge are doing the same thing. Edge has 0 add ons, Chrome and Firefox have the same add ons. My firefox version is 88.0.1, I'm running Windows 10 up to date, I have a high speed internet connection. This issue started maybe 3 days ago. I tried bringing it up in safe mode (troubleshoot mode) and still didn't have any of my normal buttons (close, minimize, maximize).

I can temporarily fix the issue, if I hit the F11 (full screen), the screen will jump, at first no change (it would be entering full screen when I hit it first), hitting it again (exit full screen) will bring back my normal window, complete with add-ons, all buttons and even my background image.

I'm attaching a screenshot. I'm really at a loss on this one. Any help would be appreciated.

I posted this question before, and it got escalated, but there wasn't a resolution or fix suggested. I am hoping with more crash reports I can get some help finding a solution! Firefox is now crashing routinely - as in, many times each day. I am at my wits end! It's not profile-related as I sync my browser profiles and have no issues on my other computer. I did a clean install, and the crash frequently slowed for a while, but now I'm back to tearing my hair out. Please help!

Is this known behavior? Has it been reported to Mozilla? Found nothing from a search.

What happened to FireFox Version 88.0.1? I updated to this version yesterday after a lot of nagging from popups.

Prob 1. Try to open a link from email and I get, "Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to input.mozilla.org. PR_CONNECT_ABORTED_ERROR The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem."

When I try the same link in Safari, which tends to be grumpier than Firefox about security issues. it works just fine; no complaints and the page opens.

Prob 2 ( IMO related ). Try to open a bookmark and I get, "The connection was reset

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web."

Again, when I try the same link or site in Safari, works just fine.

I've been getting a lot of crashes on a website I'm developing - for example bp-b1597aaa-c596-4641-ad9b-a9dea0210503 . It's at the stage now where every time I open the site (or a clone of it) it crashes.

This appears to be reported at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1706429 but has severity and priority of P3, perhaps based on 39 reports when the ticket was raised. But there are now 614 of them: https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/signature/?product=Firefox&signature=js%3A%3Afrontend%3A%3AGeneralParser%3CT%3E%3A%3AprimaryExpr&date=%3E%3D2021-04-27T17%3A01%3A00.000Z&date=%3C2021-05-04T17%3A01%3A00.000Z&_columns=date&_columns=product&_columns=version&_columns=build_id&_columns=platform&_columns=reason&_columns=address&_columns=install_time&_columns=startup_crash&_sort=-date&page=1#reports

This is really annoying because I'm having to do my website development in Chrome.

My tabs are frequently crashing and some strange behaviors occur with firefox after these crashes (adblock failing to work until browser restart, browser going blank for a split second). My browser also occasionally crashes, and even more infrequently my entire computer will crash which usually happens after series of tabs crashing in a row. It may be a ram issue but I have no problems with any other programs on my computer so I doubt that.

I had a different issue I came here for, but I discovered a very serious bug while I was writing my question, so I want to make sure this gets addressed first.

After writing my question, I clicked the "share data" button below. I got a message "We can't automatically get your browser's troubleshooting data, please try these manual steps. " Without thinking, I clicked the link to the "manual steps." Unfortunately, instead of opening a new tab, which would be the expected behavior, clicking the link took me off the get help form page (the page I'm on as I write this). What's worse, when I used the back button to return to the previous page, everything I'd written was gone. Obviously, the expected behavior would be to not take the user off the page in the first place, but if for some reason it did, to autosave the writing so it can be restored when the user returns.

This kind of bug used to be a lot more common in the early days, when I first started using the web, 25 years ago. I used to have a boilerplate describing the problem because I was sending reports of the bug so frequently. I've only encountered it twice, to my recollection, in the last 5 years. Firefox's website would have been one of the last places I'd ever expect to find a bug this glaring and elementary.

Thanks!

So I've been experiencing a rather annoying bug/issue, and I have a work around for it, but I would love if anyone could help me figure out the issue at hand. I couldn't find a relevant, up to date solution for this issue.

Basically, certain websites (the most notable being Reddit) will eventually no longer load. In fact, it won't even try to load. I will click a link from a Google search, or even just type in the URL for Reddit directly, and Firefox just does nothing. No error, no loading, nothing. The tab will stay blank with the URL listed as the name of the tab. I can't seem to tell if other browsers have this issue as it requires a bit of use/time to pass, but it doesn't seem to be an issue in Explorer. It isn't JUST Reddit, but it's only a couple of sites that this occurs on.

I do have a workaround --- if I tell Firefox to "Forget This Website" - suddenly it will work again. I will be logged out and see the default page due to having deleted all saved dated - but the site will work (for maybe a day) before I have to forget it again.

If this was a once a month type issue it wouldn't be a big deal, but the fact that I have to constantly re-do my local settings because of this is frustrating.

I am running Windows 10 and my Firefox version is 85.0 (64-bit). I have tried disabling any add-ons such as my AdBlocker, however that does not fix the issue.
