I have been using Firefox for many years. I always use the most current version, and have it set to check for automatic updates. My computer is current, 10th gen Intel with RTX 3060 graphics card, 1 TB SSD drive, etc. I just loaded up my Firefox and I got a blank screen, and EVERYTHING was deleted, including the 367 bookmarks I have over the last two years, and all my settings!!! I regularly use Revo Unistaller Pro, but this NEVER does anything like what I experienced, only clears cache, cookies, etc etc. I have been using that program for years also, with no issues like this. So it is puzzling to me what just happened. I literally lost ALL my progress in Firefox for the last two years! How did this happen?!?!?

hello

1) I've been trying to change the console colours for the web developer console using userChrome.css, but I have failed. I want to set the background for console.info text to be light blue while the text color to be bold dark blue font. I would like to have it only in light theme. Also I would like to change the font size of the console for both themes.

2) Is it possible to change the folders of bookmarks to yellow. I read there are SVG. I tried to solution that are meant to change the folders to yellow, but failed. Can someone point me to a dummies guide for a solution.

The first one is the more important issue.

Thank you in advance

The top bar of LinkedIn which should display their search bar and several navigation buttons suddenly is showing up blank. I've not added anything new to the browser or done anything else that I'm aware of to cause this. I've seen others report this issue in the past. Is there a fix?

I can't open amazon.com. I've disabled my antivirus and have tried in 'troubleshoot' mode. I have cleared my cache. I have flushed my DNS. It's been going on for days. I keep timing out. Other sites do not exhibit problems. Chrome DOES open amazon.com quickly.

Hey there!

We have problems with our OAuth authentication in Firefox. There are 4 calls happening (3 Redirects).

- Call To Login - Call To Authorize Endpoint - Call To Client SignIn - Call To Client Homepage

The expected behavior would be

Login (302) -> Authorize (302) -> Client SignIn (302) -> Client Homepage (200)

This works in a few tested browsers. In Firefox the first three calls appear simultaneously without a status code in the network tab and the page keeps loading. After about 75 Seconds the page loading stops and the three status codes (302, 302, 302) appear. But the fourth request is missing in the network tab. (See attached images - Firefox is dark, Chrome is white)

I have redacted HAR files of both Firefox and Chrome if that helps.

Any idea why Firefox behaves like that?

Thank you for helping! Best, Chris

Since the last update, when I click on a link in a document, Firefox opens my home page in a new tab instead of the link that I clicked on. I've never seen this with Firefox before. What's causing this, and how can I fix it? (It's enough to make me abandon Firefox altogether.)

Am I alone having difficulty logging in to (UK savings bank) https://www.nsandi.com, since they introduced two-factor authentication?

1.

It takes me back to the login screen which prompts me for my account details. 6. I enter my login details. 7. I get a JSON error message {"error":"ERROR_DURING_DEVICE_REVOKE","errorDescription":"ERROR_DURING_DEVICE_REVOKE"} on what looks like a Firefox diagnostic screen; the "headers" tab shows this:

8. I click the refresh/reload button 9. There's an "Accept cookies?" pop-up; I click reject all cookies. 10. The "Add trusted device" screen lets me choose a phone number to receive a one-time password. 11. There's an "Accept cookies?" pop-up; I click reject all cookies. 12. I receive the one-time password via text and enter it. 13. There's an "Accept cookies?" pop-up and (beneath it) a "Securing your browser ... please wait..." screen, which eventually is replaced by the "Your accounts screen". 14. I click reject all cookies and FINALLY I'm able to view my nsandi.com account details !

So there seems to be two issues i. The need to enter my login details twice, and then reload the page on receiving JSON "ERROR_DURING_DEVICE_REVOKE" ii. The fact that every step along the way, I get the same "Accept cookies?" pop up - surely having told it my cookie preferences it shouldn't be asking again and again and again...

Because the login dialogue takes me to three different URLs: https://auth.nsandi.com https://secure.nsandi.com https://www.nsandi.com ... I wondered if Firefox's "Enhanced Tracking Protection" was interfering with communication between them (via the browser, during the login process). So I added all three to "Exceptions for enhanced tracking protection". But that didn't make any difference.

My work-around is to login using the Microsoft Edge browser. But it's a pain to having to remember to use my non-preferred/non-default browser for this one account.

i tried to get my REAL ID going finally. i ended up going down a rabbit hole with the DMV and AAA (they help so.cal, but not north cal ???) wasted literally hours. it works great with Chrome. the DMV knows this. i asked why they do not indicate that in big red letters, but they didnt know. the real issue is that the FIREFOX BROWSER SEEMS TO HAVE A LOT OF ISSUES, INCLUDING THIS MASSIVE WASTE OF TIME AND STRESS. maybe you guys should tell people about the limitations here, because bu not doing that you are being really less than completely honest. why do you want people to use something that has so many issues ? i have deleted FIREFOX off my windows PC and iPad and will never use it again. i do not trust Mozilla any more. get real or go away please, you are just making problems for people. thank you. if the truth hurts, too bad, it is just like Theranos and the lies. what is in it for you ? a job, making internet use difficult unnecessarily for people ? sorry, no more testing your bugs for free.

YOUR BROWSER DOES NOT WORK WITH THE CALIF STATE DMV REAL ID APPLICATION ON LINE THE CHROME BROWSER WORKS OK

MY OPINION IS TO NOT USE FIREFOX ANY MORE AT ALL ANY IDEA WHAT IS WRONG ? I REALLY DO NOT CARE I HAVE WASTED A LOT OF TIME JUST LETTING OTHERS KNOW SO THEY MAY MOVE ALONG ALSO.

I SEE THIS NOW We've made some educated guesses about your current browser and operating system. Show details »

Starting today, on my W10 system, my FF startup is being blocked by a User Profile overlay requiring the creation of my User Profile. This overlay remains in place permanently until I enter a "name" for my about-to-be-created profile. However, upon entering a "name", the overlay and FF app both terminate immediately.

This repeats every time I try starting FF (as Administer) and encounter the User Profile overlay.

I am left wondering if this overlay is malicious on some other systems where security detection is absence?

This User Profile requirement has never been required before (10yrs). Maybe a FF update was auto installed in the last 36 hrs. I checked for pending updates / corrections but only found details of a new Beta version available.

I have a Win10 Restore Point dated 12-7-22 which I could apply. Can I assume FF components (from before this glitch) would be recovered from Restoring this system recovery file?

Appreciating an plausible suggestions, Aiden.C

Windows 10 machine, latest version of Firefox

Firefox functionality begin blocked. Screens showing up blank. New tabs do not open, even going to settings does not open a tab

URL do not show as loading

Other browsers (Edge, Chrome) are fine

Firefox was working until Microsoft windows update about a month ago.

Tried full uninstall, directory deletion and remvoed Mozilla from the registry.

Installer fails.

I had to log off the domain and use admin local account to reinstall. When not on domain Firefox works fine

Log into the domain and Firefox issues as noted above.

Microsoft FW rules checked. Other browsers are working so not a network or service block.

Only affects Firefox
