Hello! My Firefox tabs crash constantly since I got a new computer. I have tried all the suggestions I can find in the forums. I did try downloading Firefox for enterprise but I could not figure out how to get it up and running, it seemingly installed, but Firefox seems to be the same. My new (to me) computer is a MacBook Pro 13" mid 2012 if that has anything to do with it. I have Parallels installed on my computer for the first time, if that might have anything to do with it. I have not had the problem with Firefox crashing within the Virtual Machine, though. Here is the latest submitted crash report: bp-f70bd533-3d22-4cd6-9f39-498920200121 Thank you for any insights and help!

It started yesterday. When I open my XFINITY email service and try to read any e-mail, the whole body of the e-mail is "Blocked by Content Security Policy." And it says further that "Firefox prevent this page from loading." It looks like it is a problem from the Firefox browser. Your help would be appreciated.

I have been having problems with firefox lately. Every time I try to run the program it automatically closes without giving an error message. I am running Windows 10 and this happens in safe mode as well. I have tried doing a clean install of firefox - that did not fix the problem. I tried deleting my profile after uninstalling then doing a fresh install, this did not fix the problem either. I ran a virus scan and did not detect any malware. I don't know what else to try.

I am experiencing puzzling display problems with pages involving lowercase italic “y” and “x”; Lowercase y’s are dropped from displayed text and the space is closed up. The word “type” becomes “the” for example. Lowercase x’s displays as open quotation marks. This seems to happen regardless of the called for font, but only in italics.

The pages where I am seeing this problem display properly in Safari. Running Firefox 70.0.1 (64 bit) on a MacBook Pro, 13 inch, 2018, running Mojave 10.14.6

Hello everyone,

Since the OS on my office PC was updated to Windows 10, Firefox add-ons on do not work properly. I get a blank popup menu when I click on Facebook Container, LastPass does not save my credentials and I have to re-enter them everytime I close a window, Zotero Connector simply does not work at all, and AdBlocker Ultimate does not, well, block ads (see attached images). I should add that every time I start Firefox, the Adblocker Ultimate welcome tab is there. This is really annoying and makes me lose quite a bit of time everyday.

It looks as if Firefox was not saving some of my user settings properly. I tried refreshing Firefox, deleting my profile, uninstalling and reinstalling all add-ons, going to safe mode and back, nothing worked.

I should add that the exact same configuration, with the exact same add-ons works just fine on my personal laptop.

Any idea on what to do or where that might come from?

I'm migrating to a new computer and I'm trying to set up Firefox to continue working as it did on my old one. The version is 70.0.1, 64-bit.

I copied my library of bookmarks from the old machine to the new one, and all of them are accessible - except the ones in the bookmark toolbar. There's nothing where the toolbar should be except a single button with the Firefox icon and the label "getting started."

I checked the customization page and confirmed the bookmark toolbar is being displayed. Apparently "Getting Started" is the only bookmark the Firefox knows about.

I tried to define one of the bookmarks that is supposed to be in the toolbar, but could not. Firefox is happy to let me _edit_ it, because it is already defined, and will let me move it to any location except the toolbar, which is where it now is -- except that it isn't. How can I make Firefox display my bookmark toolbar again?

When downloading a file, the file download window pops up. The option "Save this file" is automatically selected, which is good. But the OK button is disabled until I hover over it, or for several seconds or something? Sometimes it stays disabled, and sometimes it enabled itself quite quickly. It seems kind of random.

Bottomline is, I want that OK button to be ALWAYS enabled. I want to be able to hit the enter key as soon as the download window pops up. I don't want my browser to make me wait arbitrarily. That's annoying.

I would also like to know why the "Do this from now on" checkbox is disabled. Why can't I make downloads always start right away without that (to me, silly) download window popping up? That's what that checkbox is for, is it not?

I would suggest that disabling a UI control is always bad if it's not absolutely completely 100% crystal clear WHY it's disabled. Instead, display a message or whatever explaining why something can't be done.

Hi, I have Firefox 68 (andoid) registered to Firefox Sync with all my credentials. Now I installed on linux Firefox 70, enabled sync for my account but credentials are no more synced. I think it is an issue due to a old Firefox account, created when there were no Firefox Lockwise.

I followed the migration guide but probably I was not able to understand the procedure: I

  • disconnected sync on all my browsers
  • sign in again from my android device with sync using the same email (I've read that is possible)

Help please!

PS: I tried to install Firefox Lockwise but credentials are empty for my account, despite I forced manually sync from my android.

Bose AE2 Soundlink Stereo bluetooth headphones have worked perfectly in firefox for years, and still do for my entire computer, including other browsers on it. Suddenly stopped working recently in firefox only. I have already reinstalled firefox and gone through every procedure recommended in the help faq to no avail. I have updated all Bose software and the headphones. Nothing has worked, and I only use my bluetooth headset on this computer, a HP Envy laptop (Win 10 PRO). The speakers on this computer work fine with firefox, and work in firefox. Please help! Desperate here...

I remember clearly back in the day, just a few hours ago, deleting cookies meant 1. Open the inspector 2. Find the cookie requiring dismissal 3. Highlight said cookie. 4. Provide the cookie a cigarette and an opportunity speak a few words. 5. Before the cookie to light the smoke or utter a word, hit the delete key on the keyboard. 6. Bye bye cookie.

Now that does not work. I want to know who is responsible. My preliminary research indicates obtaining that information could be a lengthy process. Therefore, prudence dictates a more modest intervention.

I ideas why the cookie deleter button stopped working?

I aplogize for being a noob with such a noob question. Over the last five years, I have deleted any where near 1,000,000 cookies, so I beg your patience in any assistance you might be able to provide.

I have added exceptions, I have gone through About:Config. Every website I need to use for work including how I clock in to just trying to use Google for either a search or to access work email gives the SEC_ERROR_CA_CERT_INVALID. Every single site I go to - including trying to access Mozilla support. Every site has been added as an exception and it still gives me the security error.

I work between two computers right now and my old one with the same version of Firefox does not do this. No exceptions, no messing with About:Config - it goes to the sites with no problems. The network I use does not have anti-virus and there is no anti-virus on the two Macs I use.

I know it isn't the websites either as Chrome and Safari both load what I need with no problems either. And this is recent as when I set the new computer up just this past Monday, 12/16/2019, everything was working fine and Firefox was syncing from the old computer and loading all sites fine.

The optional search bar where you can choose your search services (google, wikipedia, youtube, duckduckgo etc): The search bar works for google but not for google images. Instead of results I get a 404 page and the url seems to be coming out wrong which may be the problem(?): https://images.google.com/images?q=fox&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls={moz:distributionID}:{moz:locale}:{moz:official} And the 404 error reads "images not found on this server" but it worked before, and this just started happening today. This was for a search for "fox". (As an example, in the url given above) Again, search bar works for google (regular), wikipedia. duckduckgo etc, just not for google images search . LATEST FIREFOX

Firefox 70.0.1 on Mint Linux 19.2, though this has been going on for several months now with older versions of FF:

Periodically, at unpredictable intervals, Firefox reverts my choice of spellcheck dictionary (English US) to English Australian. In the FF Preferences i don't even have Australian as an option: i have only UK, US, and Canada. Nonetheless, now and then, FF will start marking the word "color" as misspelled, at which point i know that the dictionary has once again been swapped out. Right-clicking the misspelled word and selecting "Languages..." reveals that Australian is always, without exception, the one it's been switched to.

My system-wide language is US English. Nothing, on any of my systems, is configured to use Australian, so FF making this particular choice of dictionaries completely befuddles me.

The "troubleshooting information" which was automatically attached to this post confirms that i don't have Australian English activated in FF.

How do i keep FF from randomly switching dictionaries on me?

Recently I've been having trouble with the dropdown menus in Firefox, such as the History and Bookmarks menu in the tool bar and the right-click menu. Intermittently when I open the menus they close within a second or two without me doing anything. This only happens in the Firefox window, all of my other apps and browsers are fine.

I'm running on a Macbook Pro with OSX 10.15.1 and Firefox 70.0.1. I've restarted Firefox and it fixes the problem for a short time then the problem returns. I've cleared my History, including Caches and Cookies, reinstalled Firefox, restarted my computer and tried disabling my add-ons. The issue keeps coming back.
