I believe this info is relevant, but this undated page may be out of date (I am on Windows 10 with 94.0.2 ) -- I do not see the things they refer to:

"Tap the menu button:" which has a URL, a "1" in a box, and a three-vertical-dots array in a red box.

Clicking upper-right-corner icons at random has "disconnected" my account. Just getting in deeper. I bet I have to log in again...

I am facing this error message while streaming videos. But it doesn't appear in every video, just on some few websites. Things I have tried so far: clearing cache & cookies but failed reinstalled firefox but failed disabled add ons, even started firefox in safe mode but failed reinstalled windows a few days ago but still same.

I have tried using different browsers such as chrome, opera, edge and it works fine in all of them. Is there any solution for this issue?

Hi Folks,

I've used Firefox for years with no problem. Yesterday, I was seeking out a specific font. The website looked legit, but then a security block happened and I don't recall if it was Firefox security or Acronis that flashed a brief "block" announcement. In any case, from that point on, several "racey" websites popped up every time I loaded Firefox. This happened even after I restarted my computer. I then checked to see if I had pop-ups blocked on the Firefox options. I didn't, so I checked the box against pop-ups. But what happens now is Firefox does an attempt to load TWICE with an odd jerk-flash movement. Only one Firefox browser window comes up -- and that's good -- but SOMETHING is still trying to make those "racey" websites load. Why? How?

All of that to say that I'm concerned about security. Should I uninstall Firefox and reinstall?

Thanks for your input! Bob Anderson

Hello,

When my VPN client Private Internet Access drops its connection to the VPN server, all the tabs I have open in Firefox say they have crashed. I can restore the pages by simply refreshing, but it didn't used to be like this. This doesn't happen if I turn off wifi or manually disconnect the VPN, only if the VPN drops the connection. Very strange.

My environment: - Mac Mini M1 2020 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD - MacOS Monterey 12.0.1 - PIA MacOS client 3.1.2 (build 06767) - Firefox 94.0.2 (64-bit) -- ublock origin 1.39.0 -- greasemonkey 4.11

Hopefully you can reproduce and fix it.

Howdy, fellow Firefox aficionados.

I'm running FF on a Windows 10 Home 64-bit desktop. Some time ago, I suddenly could no longer open Firefox because it couldn't find my Profile. So, I attempted to create a new one, but it would not allow me to do so.

"Changes Not Saved"

   "An unexpected Error has prevented your changes from being saved."

[See uploaded Image]

More than likely, either I, or one of my system maintenance programs wiped some data or folder. I have deleted Firefox and reinstalled it with the latest version, but this dilemma persists.

Thanks for reading my post and if you reply, a big Thanks!

Hello I love Firefox and I primarily use Firefox on all my devices.

I manage facebook and instagram account using facebook content studio. I have no problem uploading videos to facebook. I upload the videos to Instagram from this link (https://business.facebook.com/creatorstudio/instagram_content_posts). I'm not having a problem uploading a post(image). but I'm having trouble uploading the video. The problem I have is: the video upload continues up to 99.9%, but somehow it does not go to 100%. I cannot share the video unless it is 100%. I try again, close and open the tab and sometimes even restart the browser. Not all the time but too many times I have this problem. I upload the same video to twitter, facebook and instagram. video uploads to twitter and facebook without any problem, but not to instagram. I wait for a long time, but unfortunately it is not 100%. I have been using the Google Chrome browser for video uploads for a while because firefox has not finished uploading, and I have not encountered any problems so far. I only experience this problem when uploading videos to Instagram and through firefox.

I am using Facebook container and Tab Reloader plugins. I also wrote this problem on facebook, but they do not seem to have a problem. please find a solution to this problem. I want to use firefox. not chrome u.

best regards

Why can't I online shop with Mozilla? For months now I have had to go to another browser to use websites and make purchases. It doesn't happen 100% of the time, but enough to have me consider using a different browser permanently. I have used Firefox for years and don't want to change. But, when I need to purchase things or even pay bills and it won't let me continue on to a site, it's an issue. And yes, I have cleared cache and cookies and it doesn't seem to make a difference.

Specific examples: I logged into a store that I have purchased from before to make a new purchase. I can browse the website, but when I add to cart and try to check out, nothing. No message, not anything to help me know what the issue is. I go to Edge, pull up the site, and complete my transaction.

Today I tried to log onto a site that we just set up an account with yesterday. It's to be a guarantor on an apt for my son. We set up the acct and went today to finish the requirements and it won't let me access it. Just keeps scrolling. I go to Edge, log in with no trouble.

Hey, All of the saved logins and passwords are gone while the bookmarks remain.

I noticed that logins and passwords disappeared after the computer turned off unexpectedly due to low battery and unstable power connection couple times in a few minute interval.

How do I get back logins and passwords?
