Several days ago I've noticed that YouTube navigation menu on the left started to disappear. See pic-1. It may apper after several tries to open it in other tabs, but all in all mostly not visible. The second and the biggest problem - I can't log out from YouTube. See Pic-2.

I fully deleted Firefox, created new clean profile without any add-on etc, and tried to log in to YouTube - it didn't help. So I think it's not needed to mention all other basic things like cookie deleting etc were done. Problem is always here.

Hello, I am still running Win7. After this morning reboot, firefox did not start, messaging: "Der Prozedureinsprungspunkt "sql3lite_database_file_object" wurde in der DLL "nss3.dll" nicht gefunden. After that a message windows says: "Couldn't load" XPCOM. I tried to reinstall firefox downloading it with another browser, but the installation (I am now working with) seems to be somehow parallel, i.e. I don't have my profile and extensions, passwords, etc. And the look ist different.

Thanks in davance for any help.

I've been familiar with how FF works on Win7 for years. I know how and where its profiles and configs are stored and have reinstalled FF and recovered settings from the previous profiles.

I'm new to Windows10 64, don't really like it but it's embedded in an Intel nuc box. I have trusted file cleaner apps I use to clean unwanted temp files (except important FF profiles which are whitelisted from cleaning). On Win 7 I know roughly what the cleaner will find and remove.

I cleaned Win10 64 with the latest FF update installed (I don't think it's the update) and found over 1000 temporary files. The file path is Users\username\Appdata\local\Mozilla Firefox\Profiles\profile number\ default-release\cache2\entries. They are all small files and not the main default or custom profile I'm used to seeing. But they keep growing in number!

I know Win10 has account and file security protection which gets in the way and wthout changing ownership of this temp folder and sub folders, there is no admin user access.

Can anybody help me understand what I'm seeing. Are these FF profiles in cache2 temporary and not being deleted on exit due to Win10 file protection, or some other reason?

Thanks

Bulk web page Images Download via Tools > Page Info > Media > Select All > Save As - no longer works as it did in previous versions of Firefox. Now, when trying to download all images on a web page all at once via Tools > Page Info > Media > Select All > Save As - When clicking the Select All button a new window opens up but no images have been selected (highlighted in blue) so when Save As button is selected a new window opens asking which folder to save the images to and after selecting the folder nothing happens (no images are saved). This procedure for saving all images on a web page worked just fine in previous versions of Firefox, but now it no longer works. I don't know if this is a bug or coding error or if it has been done intentionally for some strange reason.

Hi guys, I'm on Firefox QUantum 68.11.Oesr and I have a problem with my searches. NO matter what I do, it keeps taking me to Yahoo search which I hate but I can't figure out how to fix that. I've had that happen before and a buddy helped me fix it but I can't get hold of him.

Google is set in the options so that's not the problem. This is driving me nuts 'cause I search for stuff frequently and I hate Yahoo.

Thanks

Hello! I need help on a very strange problem I had recently with my Firefox. I have Firefox 83.0 64-bit installed on my Windows 7 Home Basic desktop PC. Some time after maybe version 81 and above, I noticed that my Firefox randomly closes and reopens without showing any error messages. I noticed that the most consistent time this phenomenon happens is when I turn on my PC and start Firefox, it almost always closes and reopens, sometimes even more than once. It acts like the browser crashed, but the weird thing is it doesn't show any error message saying that the browser crashed. Once I opened Firefox at least once after I turn on my PC, even if I manually closed it and reopen it later, it will not crash on Firefox startup, it will probably only crash again after I restarted my PC and open Firefox. Also rarely, Firefox randomly closes and reopens whenever I browser whatever website with no reason whatsoever, but this only happens 3 out of 10 times.

I opened Troubleshooting Information to look for clues on what might be causing this, and I noticed "Launcher Process" is "Disabled due to failure". I am not sure what that means though, but I have a feeling this might be related somehow?

If anyone has any idea on what's going on, please help me. Thanks!

Ever since IE changed to tabs on top firefox coders followed like mindless automatons without any regard to/for Mozilla community and users. We are sick and tired of being ignored. We want/need tabs bellow address bar. Now, tell us how to simply get tabs below address bar or tell the coders to provide us with the option. And, we don’t care about any excuses as previously provided or outright ignored by them.

Trying to migrate Firefox profile from Win 7 machine to new Win 10. Downloaded Firefox to new machine, confirmed that it worked, closed it.Using Troubleshooting feature, located active profile in old Win 7 machine, copied to USB stick. Closed Firefox on new machine, navigated to Profiles folder, copied the Win 7 file to it and deleted the existing file. Tried to start Firefox, got 'Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible'. Fiddled round a bit, finally uninstalled Firefox from the new machine and downloaded it again. Got the same error message, now no Firefox at all after carefully following such instructions as I could find. What the f*ck am I doing wrong? A year or so ago I transferred the Win 7 profile successfully to a Win 10 laptop. What has gone wrong now? Any suggestions most welcome.
