When I turned on my computer this morning a message said I needed to download Firefox Update, so I clicked on that link. About a half hour later after it had also updated Windows 10 a page popped up telling me I had been sent a code to my email that I would need to input. I have not received an email or junk mail with any code. However, it looks like I already have Version 86. Please help me with this issue. I am so overwhelmed with computer issues I'm on the verge of tears right now. My last Windows 10 update Did NOT install and I am not the only one with this issue, but NO help from Microsoft. Did Mozilla update Windows 10 to accept the new version of Firefox? I looked at your educated guess, clicked on Show Details, nothing came up. Then I clicked on Troubleshooting Information and Share Data. I don't know if you are able to see this list or not, I don't know what 99% of it means, but I did copy a few things that may be helpful. environmentVariables": {

I already have VERSION 86 according to the information on Firefox. But the message I had this morning specifically asked to download FIREFOX latest version. Please help. Rhonda

Firefox account problem

All PC's mentioned below are on the same router and LAN, and all are using Firefox 86 x64 on Windows 10.

I have been a Firefox user for many, many years (I started using browsers in the 90's, 'nuff said). But having recently reinstalled a PC, I found myself unable to initiate sync on the new Firefox install there. I kept getting the error "NetworkError when attempting to fetch resource." in a red box when I entered my password. Perplexed, I tried creating a support ticket on another of my PC's (let's call it #2) - same error there when trying to sign in to Firefox support! I then tried to use that browser to access my account by going to Account Settings -> Manage Account. I was met with a circle animation - and a completely blank webpage.

This post is being created from my third PC, where, for some odd reason, the Manage Account function actually works, and where I was also able to sign into support. I made a change to my bookmarks on PC/Firefox #2, to see if sync was still working - and it did come through to PC #3. After that, I was finally able to start a sync on PC #1 (the newly installed one).

But I am still unable to do anything with my account on PC #2. Can't sign in to support, can't access Manage Account. And this cannot be purely about the profile or installation, as the issue was affecting PC #1 as well.

It seems like Mozilla's account management is really wobbly, and my prime suspect is the shift to "Firefox Accounts" on the support pages recently. But I'm open to being proved wrong.

Just hoping someone out there can tell me what this issue is, and how I fix it. The fact that I was unable to sign in to my Firefox Account from a completely new Firefox install makes me very uncomfortable. And my primary PC (#2) is still unable to manage that account, or sign in to the support pages.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Everyone

I'm using the latest FF 87.0 64bit in Win 10 Home. I launched FF to a blank tab only, and see the following messages in the console listed below, too advance for me to understand. Also when I add uBlock Origin, it blocks the telemetry data, see the errors below also. Even if I allow access to uBlock, it'll still block telemetry data. For the sake of security, I've changed my browser signature info to 1234 in all the strings below.

What do they mean? Do I need to reset my FF?

THANKS!

Why must I suffer whenever a Firefox update is coming??? The same thing happens when Microsoft is going to update Windows. Everything slows to a crawl. At least monster Microsoft puts a little green dot on my power icon to let me know an update is on the way. Can't you notify me in advance, so I don't get caught in the whirlpool of everything slowing down? It even slows down my Microsoft Word. I didn't think my browser would affect that. PLEASE ANSWER. I thought you guys were cool alternatives to the big, commercial guys.

I'm considering writing an Add-On that does a DNSSEC/DANE lookup.

My scenario is that a DNSSEC query for the TLSA (DANE) records of a site return a full Root Certificate for a site. (2,0,0 in DANE jargon.)

I want to create new TLS context with a CA-pool containing just that Certificate, so that when I browse to the site, the TLS-layer verifies the site certificate against the DNSSEC-specified Root CA.

My question: how do I program that in an add on? How can I specify a *certain* CA root certificate before opening the connection.

So I have Firefox on a main O/S Windows 8.1 & a second boot Ubuntu 12.04. I've set up my sync account on Windows 8.1 & when I set it up on Ubuntu with the recovery key it will import the bookmarks, add ons, preferences ect. The problem is if I add bookmarks in Windows Firefox & then boot Ubuntu Firefox it won't change it on Ubuntu, if I add a new bookmark on Ubuntu Firefox it won't change it on Windows. They both keep their own instance of my sync but won't share it & share the changes.

Am I supposed to select a setting at the Sync Options to tell it to keep both the browsers the same & to also let each other add bookmarks? If you know what I mean ;)

I had issued with my ndvidia drivers over the weekend. I was not able to uninstall them to install the newest one. I had to manually go through the registry and delete all keys for nvidia. Then ran a registry cleaner, rebooted and was able to update to the newest graphics drivers. However since then, Firefox will crash almost immediately, or when clicking a link.

What I did then was uninstall Firefox, and also removed all references in the registry for Firefox (including deleting the directory it was under). I reinstalled Firefox, have NOT added any plugins or extensions as it still crashes.

Not sure what to do at this point other than discontinue using what was my favorite browser.

I began to have printing problems which may have been triggered when printing from the Firefox browser. I did not isolate the trouble with Firefox, but I did determine the cause was an installation of Windows Internet Explorer version 11 which was installed automatically on a Windows Update. I am running 64-bit Windows 7. I determined V11 was the problem by removing updates one at a time then printing from several programs I use like WORD, Excel, Powerpoint, Adobe Reader, Firefox, and Thunderbird. The symptom of the problem was that I could print fine once or twice, but then the communication between the PC and printer (Lexmark S405 b/g) became busy and no other print jobs would complete, even those from two other PCs (neither had V11) that worked fine for printing any print job before an attempt from the PC with V11. Once I resolved the problem to be V11, I did not try to isolate if it was triggered by any print job or one from Firefox, but I a little suspicion that it could be triggered by a print attempt from Firefox since I know I was able to print once or twice before the problem was triggered.

I'm running Firefox 26 on OpenSUSE 13.1 64bits. I got problem in Firefox 26 to use IBM Lotus iNotes and the recommandation is to revert to Firefox 24 ESR. I tried to do this, but it didn't work.

Now i uninstall all Firefox and installed the latest version (26) again. Now Firefox won't load any web-page. It just saying "Connecting..." but nothing happens. No timeout nor error-mesg.

If i run Firefox in terminal, i get this message; (process:3072): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_slice_set_config: assertion 'sys_page_size == 0' failed


I also backed up the profile og recreated a new profil. I suspect that the version 24.2 ESR did some change to files, but i uninstalled everything, rebooted and installed new. Still it doesn't work :-(

What is wrong!?
