for the last 2-3 updates everytime I go to start firefox I get a busy cursor and firefox won't open. When I check task manager firefox process is listed but I can not end it. Als a consent ui process appears for a split second, then vanishes, then reappears and vanishes in an infininte cycle untill I log out of windows to force it to close.

I browsed to mozilla install location and deleted the only .xpi I didn't recognise a doh-rollout@mozilla.org.xpi and thankfully I can launch firefox again. As this problem seems to come back every update I'm hoping someone has an explaination and fix.

Because i didn't find any thread that adresses this exact issue, I wanted to say that I found a solution. If you want to open links in Gmail (with a normal, left click) in a new window, you type about:config in the search bar, accept, then search browser.link.open_newwindow and set the value to 2. This will open clicked Gmail links in new window. If you want to open links in Gmail (with a normal, left click) in a new tab, you type about:config in the search bar, accept, then search browser.link.open_newwindow and set the value to 3. This will open clicked Gmail links in new tab. Hope this helps.

I normally use multiple search engines by using the dropout panel with search engine icons (I think they're called one-click) on just one address bar (The red label on the image), but since last update they no longer appear on just one address bar (the blue label). I have attempted to enable the search bar, and there it seems to work so maybe its somehow hidden from the design... Is this a bug? I have browser.search.showOneOffButtons and browser.urlbar.oneOffSearches set on TRUE, and use no particular theme. Searching if someone had the same question I came with complaints asking for the panel to be removed so I wonder if its a design interface decision. Thank you in advance for your time.

I'll start with the fact that I am using a brand new laptop. Open Youtube, click play, the ads will play just fine but when it comes to the actual video, all I get is the loading circle going round and round, if that.

Videos work in safe mode and on Chrome. Tried disabling add-ons (of which was Shockwave, Open H264 VideoCodec and Widevine Decryption Module), no change. Have reinstalled Flash, restarted multiple times, refreshed Firefox, all to no avail. I'm at my wits end as to why this is happening, especially when ads are playing just fine (typical).

I also seem to be having trouble with videos on Facebook

Hi, everybody. I have a problem that I can't solve on my own. In the FAQ or search, I did not find a mention (I could search poorly)

I will try to summarize the essence: immediately after installing Firefox (from www.mozilla.org) on ​​my PC, I tried to enable the synchronization in order to (including) download my extensions that I used previously on other devices. After that, I found that none of them could be installed (they did not even appear in the Add-ons Manager list). In addition, I noticed that the list of recommended add-ons from the Manager's is displayed incorrectly (there are no preview images). When I tried to download a add-on manually from the list by clicking the "+ Add to Firefox" button, I received a pop-up message that "The add-on could not be downloaded of a connection failure" (I use a wired connection (Ethernet) to my PC, without any restrictions. At this point, I was using Chrome in parallel without any problems). I tried to go to (addons.mozilla.org) and found the same behavior. Images were not displayed and extensions were not downloaded (Download failed. Please check your connection.).

What I tried to do to solve the problem: reset the default settings; disable syncing; run in Safe Mode; delete Firefox entirely, and install it again. But all these actions did not solve my problem.

I will be grateful to anyone who can answer me. I'm counting on you.
