Earlier today I had to reinstall win 10 to fix performance issues as I was unable to identify issues occuring. I have fixed the issues. But as result FIREFOX App was removed. And through this process all bookmarks and settings appear to have been lost also. I have attempted to import and or locate bookmarks but the only thing which appears is NEWER INSTALLATION. Is there a way to find all bookmarks from previous FIREFOX used? Please help?

Since yesterday, Firefox will not play sound on youtube videos and some other embedded videos (eg Newsflare). IE and Chrome will play the sound. Have checked the sound system and everything seems OK as music still plays and websites with sound still work. Someone suggested it could be a flash player problem, but have checked Adobe flash and it is the latest version. I really don't know what the problem is. As an aside, my Train Simulator (which is run through Steam) also has no sound and it did 2 days ago!, but my Flight Simulator (also on Steam) has sound! Just can't get my head round it!! Help!!

I was reading an article on Sophos about Firefox and how it is protecting our privacy

https://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2019/11/27/firefox-gets-tough-on-tracking-tricks-that-sneakily-sap-your-privacy/

In the comments it listed 3 sites to check how unique your browser is: https://www.deviceinfo.me – Device Info https://panopticlick.eff.org – Panopticlick https://amiunique.org – AmIUnique

I have Fingerprinters checked to be blocked but on all these sites it still was able to uniquely ID my browser. I thought I had the options set pretty well to lock it down but it doesn't seem that way. Is something not working right or ???

Thanks

I receive new emails in Edge, and on my Android phone, but not in Mozilla since December, 31, 2019

UPDATE As of 3:00 p.m. PST today, all my email since December 31 is now showing up in my inbox. What I read in Edge shows as read in Firefox. None of my sent mail has updated, though, in Firefox

I'm making this update at 3:00 pm pst on 1/17/20 but the edit timestamp showed 9:52 pm pst on 1/11/20. How does that happen?

I am using Firefox Browser 71.0(64-bit) with xubuntu. Recently I have problems trying to select 'right click' options. If I right click on a selected area of text for example, when I move the mouse pointer to select an option from the menu the menu disappears. Sometimes a selection is made by the system, (usually the top one) and whatever is highlighted can be 'cut'. Alternatively, I must hold down the mouse button and move the mouse pointer the my selection and then release the button thus making the selection (never sure it is actually made!) I was thinking of changing to Chrome but I prefer Firefox because I can re-direct it's cache etc to a HD rather than an SD drive. So, I await a solution please.

Please see the screenshot attached. Before the latest update, I was able to have a separate list of passwords for each site. Now I'm seeing "From this website" and then the other website. I only want to see the passwords associated with each site, not cross referenced. Is there any tool or setting to separate them?

Recently moved and transferred cable internet service to new address, keeping same equipment. But when using Firefox, my home geo-location still shows as being in my former region when using online maps, shopping, etc, sites. I'm sure it's not a DNS/server issue as other web browsers show my correct geolocation, and those "what is my IP" sites also show correct region. ISP customer service also confirms my profile is updated.

For the record: - Firefox version: 71.0 - Verified sites have location request permissions - Tried launching in Firefox safe mode - Tried Firefox Refresh

Any suggestions greatly appreciate -

Web pages are loading painfully slowly, 11-34 seconds, some never load before timing out. Other browser (Edge) is loading pages quickly. Internet connection reasonably fast (35.7 Mbps). I tried the following:

  - Safe Mode, no change.
  - Refreshed Firefox, no change.
  - Disabled Antivirus and Firewall, no change.
  - Disabled Network Proxy, no change.
  - Content Process Limit set at 8.
  - Firefox is using 550 MB of memory (out of 10.2 GB)

There are instances when Firefox does load pages quickly, but they are increasingly infrequent and not predictable.

Up until you pushed ver 71 Firefox on me, I had ZERO problems with Google Voice page loading. Now only the banner on the page load with my acct name and icon and the rest of the page is BLANK except for the never ending spinning circle in the middle .... are you taking lessons in buggyness from CrApple OS??? My Voice account open just fine and fast on Opera, Brave, Vivaldi, and Edge Beta!!! Maybe you (Mozilla) should switch to the Chrome engine too, you are too buggy 90% of the time!

A widget (Ultimate Social Media Icons Plus) no longer displays on my website www.frankentrikes.com in Firefox 71.0 on Mac OS 10.9.5. It works on all other browsers+phones (incl Firefox).

I have already emptied the cache and done the myriad of other things Firefox recommended trying but it has changed nothing.

I noticed that my Facebook feed is also broken in Firefox, but they claim that it is a permanent break and that there is no fix (for firefox 70.0 and up).

I need this particular widget to work. I am running WordPress 4.9.13

Hi all,

previously when I sign out... Firefox used ask me if I want to to delete all bookmarks, add on, password etc. Now this doesnt happen anymore.

Even if I sign out.. and I dlete Cookies and Site Data, all my saved password are still there on Lockwise! And I can only delete one by one!!

So it's no more safe to use Firefox on another computer or am I missing something?

Please help, this is quite frustrating to have all my saved password on another computer!
