I cannot download anything. I cannot install ANY extension. uBlock extension. The only thing that works with so called third-party content -> onto my PC is `save-as`. I am struggling with this for more than a few hours and have tried EVERYTHING. I mean LITERALY EVERYTHING that can be found regarding this. Chromium browser works normally.

Have tried with default firefox-esr that ships with debian, and with Quantum 65 (current) version. Not a single change. I am using Debian (stable) Stretch, and no it is not firewall issue nor it is connection (proxy setup) issue, I strongly believe. Like I said, chromium just - works and I don't have sympathy for chromium nor I would like to gain some.

I am not even unable to upload an images of the issues I am experiencing.

"Uploading "test_download_file.png"..." ... for more than a 10 minutes.

I just saw on my Firefox that I have the History saved from October 2018. Even if I delete for the last hour, the last week or All, nothing changed, everything is still there, saved. I try to change some settings like to delete the history everytime I closed Firefox, but the history is always there. I tried to delete site by site on the History and I'm not able to delete anything. Firefox is up to date. Thank you

After installing the update for Firefox, my ability to control my windows appears to have broken. I can't manually resize them nor can I do it the quick way by pulling them into corners or against the top of my screen. There appears to be a strange white frame around my browser when I hit the maximize window button, which also forces it into full screen. When in the size it boots up in (the size it had been pre-update), it appears to have something like another, retro window open behind and attached to it. Nothing else seems to be broken thus far, but there was some trouble trying to add photos to this post to give a visual of the problem.

I've never had a problem with Firefox or an update of it before in my life, and I'm at a complete loss as to what to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Since the start of Firefox Quantum release, when I returned to Firefox I've had issues with Firefox closing itself randomly on page loads - sometimes it can happen right after I start browser, sometimes once a day, completely random, haven't noticed any patterns.

I've tried to google and look into this forums, I've seen people reporting similar issues (but not lately) and I've tried various fixes suggested here and there, for example:

- Disabling all extensions

- Disabling Hardware Acceleration

- Reseting my profile

- Reinstalling Firefox

- Heck I've even reinstalled my Windows


Not once has the closing triggered crash report.

I don't have any similar issues with any other software on my computer so it must be something Firefox specific. I've monitored my PC resource usage, thought maybe somehow it hogs up all my CPU, RAM or disk and that makes it close - nope, same haeppens even when CPU usage is 20%, RAM 12 of 32GB, disk 0-5% (SSDs) etc.

Honestly I'm out of ideas what to try and if we somebody can't help me find a solution I sadly may have to abandon Firefox once again (which I really would not like to do)

Last night I did the new firefox update and every since then I have been getting the following error on multiple sites. Including Tumblr, Google, yahoo mail, and many others.

"Network Protocol Error

Firefox has experienced a network protocol violation that cannot be repaired.

The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because an error in the network protocol was detected.

   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem."

I have tried searching out the answer on here and most said to just clear out the cache which is what I did and I am still receiving the error at random times on different sites. I can refresh and the site will load but then if I got to another page of the same website or a different site the error will just appear again. Thanks in advance!

After installing v65, when I go to the addons menu, no items are showing. Evidence exist they are there 1/ I have addons working quite well with this version, I tried a new theme which after a few re-starts, eventually took hold 2/ when I do open add ons menu, there is evidence that there is a list there, but they are only place holders. My mouse shows a blue line around the entire field, but absolutely nothing inside... like a white out. So I can't uninstall themes, even though I have installed a trial one... nothing at all appears. HELP!

FF 65.0 (64-bit), Windows 10 1803

i have been using Firefox for several years now in the office to access my Exchange management console. i have several add-ons loaded. the other day, Firefox just stopped working and won't allow me to access my Exchange management console website. i started troubleshooting by removing all add-ons and that worked. but as i enabled the remaining add-ons, again Firefox won't allow me to access my Exchange management console. no matter in what order i re-enable my add-ons. now it has come to the point where i have no add-ons and still won't allow me to access my Exchange management console!

i have at home same Firefox with same add-ons all enabled and i am able to access my management console from the Internet. our SSL certificate is still new from Comodo.

the subject is the error. how does one fix this?

Firefox Quantum 65.0; Windows 10 Pro; Grammarly, OneTab, RES, uBlock Origin

since about a week ago firefox always saves the open tabs and opens them after restarting the browser. It happens automatically and I can't stop firefox from doing so. I want every tab to be closed when I shut down firefox and they shouldn't automatically be reopened.

The box for Session Restore is unchecked and in about:config browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes is set to zero and firefox still automatically restores the sessions

Please allow users to disable the toggle Bookmarks Toolbar when using keyboard shortcut Ctrl+b. I really need to toggle Bold text constantly for my job and this is enough for me to stop using Firefox altogether. I literally have to use a different browser now. Bye Firefox I've loved you but this is horrible. If you fix this I will think about coming back.

1. Every time I was the browser I get a pop up requesting my master password. 2. I have chosen the option to eliminate the master password but the system isn't recognizing my password so I can not accomplish this. 3. I try to reset my master password using copying and pasting "chrome://pippki/content/resetpassword.xul" without the quotation marks of course. I press Enter but no reset page ever comes up so I am unable to reset the password. 4. I tried another option but can't recall exactly what it was (I've been at this way too long) where a code will be emailed to me. I've tried two different email acounts and checked spam. I never receive the code.

I guess I will have to either delete my account (if I'll even be able to without the password) and make a new account and import all my bookmarks or live that that password pop up forever. But...before I do that I'd really like to do things right by simply getting a new password. I've noticed many people with similar problems. What's is up? Love the browser but this is ridiculously complicated or impossible to reset a password.

I recently switched over from Chrome to Firefox Quantum and I have really enjoyed it so far. I'm having an issue that may be a deal-breaker, though. I imported all of my bookmarks to Firefox from Chrome and organized them nicely on my bookmarks toolbar with separators and everything. Every day they seem to get jumbled up without my doing, though, folders and all. By this, I mean they all change places randomly.

I have my home computer synced to my work laptop, but I've made sure to sync both of them last night to ensure that was not the issue before going to sleep. And this morning, lo and behold, the bookmarks are mixed up again. Anyone else have this idea and any proposed solutions? Thanks!

Ok. Another problem with Firefox. For some reason, when I'm on Facebook, then close it, the next time I open Firefox, the Facebook page opens at the log-in page and I have to re-login. Happens every time. It just started this two days ago and it's getting very tiresome. No problems before, When I closed Facebook and then sometime later clicked on Firefox icon on the task bar, Facebook would always open to my Newsfeed/Time line. Why is it doing this?

After the last few updates of Firefox I am having increasing trouble using some websites, TD Ameritrade, United Healthcare, and Yahoo Finance. I have the latest update on High Sierra 10.13.6 and Firefox 65.0. United healthcare problem started about 5 months ago when some of the pages would partially load or not load at all. Clearing cache and cookies, etc. used to solve that problem, but not any more. Problem still persists. Then after another update about a month ago, Yahoo Finance pages showed truncated column shown and inability to scroll to bottom of editing windows to save changes. That seem to resolve after about 2 week and full screens reappeared. But the Yahoo Finance problems came back after Firefox most recent update. Also, about a month ago my TD Ameritrade website started to load very slowly about the time the Yahaoo problem became worse. Now, after the latest update, I get the the login page, but after inputting the id and password, website never connects---justs gives me a blank page that never loads. In summary, I have 3 important websites that I cannot access or navigate using Firefox, BUT CAN ACCESS AND NAVIGATE USING SAFARI. I prefer, and been a loyal user/promoter of Mozilla products for decades especially for their versatility, and superior security. I hope that something can be done, so that these important sites will again fully function using Firefox.

When I'm using Firefox, on reputable sites, this screen pops up, along with a bunch of beeps. It appears to be from Firefox, but I assume it isn't. Where is coming from? Is is dangerous? How do I get rid of it?

I called Apple support, and they helped me run a scan with MalwareBytes (the scan came up clean), but the problem is still recurring. The Apple support person said to contact Firefox.

Well, the problem is back. I deleted Flashplayer and thought that helped b/c FF ran well for several days. I ran Onyx to clean my system as I have done weekly for years while running FF. But now FF bookmark links are non responsive. I click a link and nothing happens. Well, I exported links to HTML and backed up the links too. Then removed FF using App Uninstaller. Then redownloaded FF. Imported HTML links and restored links but 50% of the bookmark folders I made are empty!!! I have been having so many problems with FF over the past few months I am about to give up entirely on FF and go back to Safari. Does Onyx not work with FF? Help please. Thanks!

I got some help from FredMcD last week but I don't know how to provide a link to that page.

Ever since Firefox updated, scripts I use to make my life easier don't work anymore. For example, I have a local HTML page in which I can enter the name of a movie, click a JavaScript button, and tabs that search Netflix, Amazon Prime, and other services open up.

I have searches of this sort for other types of media, across search engines with specific criteria set. They save me a ton of time, but they all rely on my browser being able to open up a separate tab for each site being searched.

Is this gone forever in Firefox, or how can I re-enable this in the latest version of the browser? Thanks!
