Once upon a time when trying to create a blank tab, I accidentally typed "about:blank/" and this command doesn't work if the backslash is there.

Now anytime I want to create a blank tab and I type "about:blank" it automatically includes the backslash.

Because this phrase/command doesn't show up in my search history, even after clearing all of my data, Firefox keeps "helpfully" popping that backslash into the field whenever I start to type the command.

How can I make Firefox forget I ever made this stupid typo?! (Would clearing "Site Preferences" and/or "Offline Web Site Data" work? I admit I haven't cleared those two things.)

This is going on for the last 5 days or so days. It seems to happen on a fixed schedule. Everyday on a specific time I will get logged out of google,gmail,youtube,facebook,reddit and have to re-accept cookies. I am not sure why this is happening but it is very annoying.

For some strange reason Firefox is not logging me into my favorite websites automatically any more. I have to manually log in every time. The websites' login pages are automatically filled when I move the cursor to the Username and Password fields, but I still have to click Log In. As soon as I log out and log in I am asked to "Sign In" again. I tried manually adding a website to the "Saved Logins" but that did not help. Using Windows 10 64bit.

I mean my password, for example, 123456789 and the system makes it "P:KJHGHVcfbvnm,nbhg. I can log in on other browser and on cell phone browser, but it`s very troublesome and almost impossible on Mozilla. What should I do? Help me, please! I need exactly Mozilla.

I am replacing an old laptop and want to transfer all my Firefox settings to the new one. I have gone into the Sync setting on both and checked all Sync options - including Open Tabs. However, when I select Sync Now on the new PC, my open tabs from the old PC are not set up. I noticed that there is a Synced Tab sidebar which invites me to Connect Another Device - but selecting that option just leads to an invitation to login on an IOS or Android device. But, I don't want the tabs from there - I want it from my old PC. I realaise I could simply recreate the tabs - but with a hundred or so active, this would be a very tedious exercise. What can I do please?

When I want to skip a video in a youtube playlist, skip to the next track or to the previous one in spotify etc, my keyboard media keys don't work. The play/pause button works and so does volume up/down. The overlay appears all the time, but the buttons for forward/ backward are greyed out. Sometimes a song stops when I hold forward for a few seconds.

Another guy had this problems 7 years ago, the solution was to start firefox in safe mode. I did that. Didn'T work. I also disabled hardware acceleration, didn'T work.

I am using firefox to watch recorded lectures on Microsoft Streams. The video started out smoothly and increase to shutter every few seconds after a while (~5 mins) and pause itself without me touch any keys. I tried continue playing the video and this persist. I tried refresh the tab and the problem appears after a while again.

The only add on I have is Adblock.

Hey, this just recently started happening but whenever I try to playback video (mainly on twitch) the tab crashes immediately.

I've tried starting Firefox in safemode and disabling add-ons; crashing still occurs either way. I tried opening streams on Chrome and they open up fine. I have also tried clearing my cache and disabling hardware acceleration. Lastly, I have also ran windows DISM and sfc.

Also, youtube videos work fine but I can't watch twitch streams.

Here are my crash reports: https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/78bc74ac-8f7c-4ced-938e-5c7b60201020 https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/9a8a8819-2a42-4600-aeae-78c430201020 https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/80d64d3b-d525-49b9-877c-17ba70201020 https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/72b02da3-cf5a-46a2-b024-a587d0201020

In the latest version 81.0.2 I am experiencing strange issues.

1. On both of my computers I cannot get wunderground.com to load properly. It works fine in Chrome, but every time I try to log in with Firefox I just get a spinning circle and some weird code characters at the upper right by the location search box.

2. I have had several "tab crashes". These sites also work fine in Chrome, but crash in Firefox.

I have tried "refresh" and also completely removing and reinstalling Firefox on both computers. After uninstall I scanned and cleaned the registry with two different "cleaners" before reinstalling, but still having issues.

Valued community members: Not looking for a fix or work around solution here. My goal is to better understand why this occurs. Each time I (frequently) update to the latest version of Firefox, I Iose extensions (in this case new tab - cursor to search bar). I know that users can go in and correct this, but I would prefer that settings, extension, addons, etc, be preserved. My question is, is that really challenging of a code writing task? I know next to nothing about programing, but based on my experience using other apps, I would think preservation would be a piece of cake. Can a Code Joe comment in terms I might understand?
