I've been experiencing weird downloads whenever I startup firefox. My antivirus prevents the download, and says that firefox.exe is the application responsible. I will include an image of the antivirus(Kaspersky) report. Deleting and reinstalling firefox seemed to fix the problem, but it returned after sometime; even when I just used youtube on firefox(I've tried this atleast 3 different times now). I am not sure if this is caused by one of my extensions, or if there is something else I've done to cause this. I'd just like to know if there is a way to fix it?

Hi,

with a lot of effort I edited three times all my container entries at about:preferences#containers, but the changes were not overtaken correctly.

Now I want to start from the scratch without having to create a new Firefox profile. How can I delete the container entries permanently ? I already tried uninstalling and reinstalling the extension, but the entries were still there afterwards.

Thanks

Like the title states, every time I open Firefox the application freezes for about thirty seconds to a minute at a time. This is highly inconvenient and annoying. I've reset Firefox completely and the issue was not fixed, as well as doing a clean install. Because of how often and consistent the problem has been, I've had trouble finding out the source of this issue. This has been an issue for at minimum a month, most likely longer but my first mention of it to one of my friends was a month ago.

This folder for me just redirects bookmarks to the main bookmarks manager directory. It serves no purpose and I can't even remove it. It's an eyesore that I want to eliminate completely, not just from the toolbar as you can see I already did, but in general as a whole!

Firefox very slow, hangs or not responding on Windows 10 after last update late November 2022 to version ? 107.0.1. I am an end user, not versed in IT. I have used Firefox as a fast and safe browser for approximately 20 years and with Adblock Plus for over 10 years. Previously once I refreshed or reloaded Firefox it wiped out my navigation bar and bookmarks. Some friends have said that this is a tactic to encourage change to the for-profit paid version. Also when this happens I get a window for reporting the problem to Microsoft which hangs indefinitely and I have to close it. Again is this a tactic from Microsoft to get me to select Edge and Bing as my default browser and search engine? Or is this a problem with Norton360 software or their VPN? Or is this due to a failing hard drive (not SSD), registry errors or malaware? What's up and is there a simple fix?

Numerous websites are displaying both default and programmed text / graphics on html objects. Using Firefox 107.0.1 (64-bit) on Win10. Prevents use of many web pages.

Examining pages with Firefox developer tool indicates some type of standards problem with the offending objects. Problem is wide spread with Firefox. Chrome and Edge display same pages ok.

Hi, I'm having this annoying problem for several weeks now. I guess since the last update.

While browsing and searching online with google I normally open links in new tabs, and maintain many tabs open from session to session. After a few minutes FireFox stops loading the URL links. It opens a new tab but the page doesn't load. If I type a new address in the address bar of an existing page, the page blinks momentarily but it returns to the old page content. This happens with any link in the search page, or in any previously opened pages that I try to change to a different URL. The only way to fix it is closing and reopening FireFox. Then all the links and open tabs respond normally again, until it happens again. The time when the problem happens can be a couple of minutes or after hours.

Deleted secondary email cannot be reused for a new account; Mozilla still remembers

Hi, here is my situation.

1. I made a firefox account with a (primary) email, e.g. email1@example.com. 2. I followed the instructions here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-primary-email-address-firefox-accounts to change my primary email. So now I have - primary: email2@example.com, secondary: email1@example.com 3. I delete my secondary email (email1@example.com)

I want to make a new firefox account with email1@example.com. But when I enter it https://accounts.firefox.com/ firefox wants me to log on. (And if I put in the password to the account it was originally tied to, it says to log in with the primary email.)

The behaviour I expect, especially for firefox which advertises itself on (among other things) privacy, is that if I "delete" something from my account, it is actually gone. But clearly, firefox is still keeping track of email1@example.com

There are other users who tried this in the past but not given a solution: - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1393844 - says to disable sync. I signed out of all devices - did not change anything. - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1356551 - no responses - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1344201 - says to delete firefox profile. email1@example.com still being remembered by firefox (not that I really expected deleting a local profile to affect firefox's servers). - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1365073 - suggests deleting the firefox account completely. However, as the original poster of that question mentions, that would risk locking out both email1@example.com and email2@example.com , at least unless a firefox developer confirms that it would actually delete the data. - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1329144 - mentions that from a GitHub discussion, "a primary email that has been replaced with a new email is Not released for re-use"

I could not find that GitHub discussion mentioned, but assuming it is true, I'm wondering if there's a way/where I can make a request to the corresponding developers to implement truly deleting user data (when requested by the user)?

Thank you!

When I use MS Edge I don't get the freezing. Firefox is my default browser for more years than I can count. What is going on? Is there a fix?

Private window icons in Win 10 doesn't work as expected with Profiles

I have shortcuts to launch Firefox in two ways, one with no commands and one with the following command: -P "Personal" --no-remote This used to show two separate Firefox icons on the taskbar. Firefox windows opened in each profile would be grouped with the same profile and kept separate from other profiles. With the latest update I still have two icons, the Default profile has a Firefox icon and the 'Personal' profile has a private browsing icon. Even though there are no private windows open. According to latest updates, if I open private windows then they should be grouped with their own icon. However, whether I have Default or Personal profile windows open, Private windows are grouped with their standard browsing windows.

This is on Win 10, Firefox 107.0.1

Any ideas how to fix this? Ideally I would have the standard Firefox icon on both profiles then, to conform with the private window separation update, my private windows would be separated from the standard windows but also from different profiles.

Been using Firefox for over 6 years as main browser. Yesterday 30th of november 2022 i went in and opened my account page on Youtube. When loading all the preview videos on the main page FireFox froze for several seconds. Could do nothing. Never happened to me before.

i tried closing and open browser and go into youtube 15 times. Always the same result. Firefox freezing on load-in for 5-10 seconds.

I thought i had gotten a malware or something. So to be sure , i scanned with MalewareBytes and several times and did a virus scan. Came up with nothing.

I did some searching on google for firefox issue freezing. Found out that users have been having issues with firefox for a long time, several months, with firefox browser freezing. But no real solution to solve it.

I use Mozilla FireFox Version: 107.0.1

No other browser i tested, chrome, Edge, Brave have this issue when visiting youtube. ONLY Firefox!

Just to test something, i went into the network settings in Firefox settings. I changed the pre-selected setting from "use system proxy setting" to "NO proxy" and activated the setting "Activate DNS over HTTPS".

BOOOOOOM --- Problem solved!!!!!

What ever is wrong with Firefox 107.0.1 - i suggest FIX IT ASAP if you want me around as a user. Your browser is NOT OK as of now. I have never ever been forced to change any network setting for ANY browser during my 31 years using the webb. -Ok, almost true, maybe during the Robotics 28.800kb/s days back in 1993 ....

Jokes aside, -Fix your Shit!
