Wrong Timezone in Firefox Browser

Hi there,

I've searched and tried all the solutions I could find, but my FF browser still shows my timezone as Central, which is two hours ahead of my timezone, Pacific. MS Edge displays correctly, it's just FF that has the issue. There are a couple of add-ins that say they can update the timezone in FF, but not sure if I should use them (not trusted).

I verified that privacy.resistFingerprinting is set on false. Also, my control panel timezone is correct and set as Pacific, but just to see if it would correct it, I changed it and did a restart, changed it again and did a restart, and FF is still displaying Central time.

Thanks in advance for your help...

After last or previous update, Firefox does not load home page. Get message with last tabs:

Sorry. We’re having trouble getting your pages back.

We are having trouble restoring your last browsing session. Select Restore Session to try again.

Still not able to restore your session? Sometimes a tab is causing the issue. View previous tabs, remove the checkmark from the tabs you don’t need to recover, and then restore.

Did all this it is still happening. Last time removing some file folder did not correct. Do not want it to restore last session!

What is causing this?

Hi,

I am signed into a Firefox account. I have used this account on at least three different computers. I have downloaded the application anew at least a dozen times.

Firefox randomly, from where I sit, opens things in French rather than English. How can I keep it in English unless otherwise specified (I occasionally want German or Japanese)?

Thank you.

Hello, Earlier this week Firefox told me I had inadvertently downloaded a zipped folder that contains a virus or malware. I located the file in downloads and deleted it. I then deleted it from recycle bin and restarted Firefox, but the folder was still there. I deleted it from Firefox downloads, restarted Firefox... still there. I uninstalled / reinstalled Firefox.... still there. So I ran Windows Defender... nothing found. Still shows in Firefox. I ran ESET online scanner... nothing found, still shows in Firefox. I ran a malwarebytes scan, nothing found, still shows in Firefox. Lastly I did Windows Defender offline scan, nothing found, still shows in Firefox. How can I get Firefox to stop reporting virus? v/r Jim

I am experiencing many times that Firefox prints garbage, not what's on the screen. To get around the problem I switch to Safari.

Is anyone aware of this or I am the only one experiencing it? Is this a known bug?

One example:

Prints little circles...

If I switch to Safari, I get on paper what I see on the screen.

I don't know if I copied that properly, and those are submitted times. But Firefox will randomly crash the tab so often when watching videos (Netflix, HBO mostly).

Hi,

I'm using Firefox browser on my Macbook Air. I was previously able to do the following functions, but have had problems with it for the past few Firefox updates.

1) When I open Gmail in Firefox browser, the paperclip 'attach' button will not open any windows to select a file to attach. I can only drag files into the email to attach them by opening Finder and locating the file. The attachment feature works in other browsers.

2) When I open a PDF file in Firefox browser, it will no longer allow me to download them. I can do this in Chrome and Safari on my Macbook.

I really like using Firefox and don't want to use the other browsers. Can you help with why these problems have started occuring? Thanks.

This seems to have happened a few days ago.

All of the 20 or so Desktop icons I created dragging the URL from Firefox to the desktop have no turned to the DEFAULT blank page icon.

What I have tried before:

  • Ran Firefox in Safe Mode
  • Deleted the ICON CACHE and rebooted so it would rebuild
  • Refreshed Firefox
  • Clicked on the blank icon, and dragged the URL again to the desktop. I can SEE the 'shadow' copy as having the URL image/icon in it. Get the message to REPLACE it which I do, no change, still blank.
  • Clicked on the icon and then DELETED it and dragged the URL to the desktop, same thing, see and icon image in the drag, but once I release it, get the same blank page icon.
  • Uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it, no change, same problem

One 'oddity', and 3 of the ones I did try I did get the URL Icon on the desktop? Do not know why only those 3 which I deleted to icon before dragging. On one, I did not delete the icon but replaced the desktop one?

One last tidbit, I had a screen lockup the day before, and booting from the Lockup (required a power off and then on) this was not when it happened, it happened some time later, maybe even 2 days later?

Sounds like a corrupt file somewhere, just don't know where? SFC and DISM were run and no problems found. Ran 2 A/V and a Malware scan, nothing found?

Any suggestion?

Hi,

For the last few weeks Firefox has been TOTALLY unresponsive - the browser page loads however the Home Button does not appear (this was previously set to "on"), when I press the Settings hamburger and try to select an option, none of the option open, and even more annoyingly when I manually type a webpage in, it does not load.

I've tried uninstalling Firefox, manually deleting the folders from C:/Program Files and %appdata% and reinstalling but this does not resolve the issue.

Incidentally, when I try to reinstall Firefox an error comes up saying vcruntime140.dll is not present but when I bypass this dialogue box and let the install finish, it is then present in the C:/Program Files/Mozilla Firefox folder.

Thanks for any help.

I am no longer able to copy and paste an article in its original format. I no longer can copy and paste any image, including copying and pasting screenshots, without them going into attachments. I know this is not a google issue because my wife uses chrome-which I do not like-and I can copy and paste articles and images accurately on chrome. I do not wish to use chrome, or upgrade to windows 11. I have tried refreshing firefox, uninstalling and re-installing to default settings, and nothing works to restore this ability to me in firefox.

I'm having trouble with my Wordpress site, bmeisterman.com. When attempting to edit or create a post, when I click that link, it goes to a blank page. Other sections on Wordpress work without issue. I tried this on Safari and it worked flawlessly. I updated Firefox without any improvement. I rebooted the computer, still no difference. I deleted all cookies and cache without improvement. The problem exists only on Firefox. Thoughts?

When I select the "Copy link" option in the context menu on any webpage, it is about a 70% chance that the link is actually copied to the clipboard. The other 30% of the time, the clipboard retains its previous content. This problem has been occurring for about 6 months, through multiple Firefox upgrades.

My sense is that the problem occurs on tabs that have been open a long time. I don't think it matters which website I attempt to test.

I can repeat this problem right now. I can copy every link on this page. However, in another window I have open, which has been open for a long time, I cannot copy any link on that page.

Any ideas how to fix this problem?

Hi Support team,

I would like to know what changes have been made after version 94 in firefox which changed the visibility logic. The websites work in background tab without the focus in version 94 where as the latest version requires the tab to be in focus or active. Could you please let me know if there are any config changes made in firefox by default for inactive tabs or tabs which are not focused. If so, could you please let me know what changes are required to get the same behavior for inactive tabs as version 94.

Thank you
