I used the import from another browser tool to import my passwords from Chrome into FF. It looks to have grabbed all of the passwords, but every single username and password is corrupted. It looks to be encrypted data. Is this import function currently broken? I'm using FF 67.0.1 (64-bit) and Chrome 75.0.3770.80 (Official Build) (64-bit) on Win10. I also have FF Lockwise installed and I made sure that all Chrome processes were stopped. Any info would help, thanks!

I have been using an application called YTD (YouTube Downloader), for some years now, and recently it has started to not download certain videos on YouTube anymore.... Specifically, it will not download any music videos of songs anymore, but it will still download any other videos that are not music.... This seems to be a new thing, as I recently upgrade from High Sierra to Mojave, and a bunch of old apps. that I use no longer function correctly.... Does anyone else use YTD downloader application, and if so, is there a fix for the Mojave opersating system that will let it work correctly?? Thanks in advance!!

Firefox won't keep me logged in to homepages and other webpages and I have to sign in every time I launch Firefox.

Firefox won't keep me signed in to anything, even though I've selected to remain signed in via websites' preferences and it has always kept me signed in before. Every time I relaunch Firefox, I have to sign in to my two homepages (Yahoo and Fark), even though the passwords are stored in Firefox, and they auto-fill in the appropriate slots. This happens with all other pages I've tried, even the Firefox help forum itself.

I've reset Firefox, I've cleared all my passwords (and re-entered a few of them) to make sure they are correct, and still no luck. I removed u-Block origins, thinking maybe it was causing it, but it's still happening even without u-Block installed.

When I visit any Add-ons page, instead of the button to install the add-on, a button stating "Only with Firefox - Get Firefox now" appears. Clicking this button takes me to the Firefox download page.

This is happening in Firefox, which just updated to the latest version (67.0.1) this morning.

Tweetdeck for example looks horrible because it uses default white browser scroll bars. ( https://tweetdeck.twitter.com/ )

It's one of my primary reasons for not ditching chrome yet ( though I'll be forced to when they screw ad-blocking. )

I know its a petty aesthetic reason but it really draws your eyes to your second monitor having random white bars in between the black layout.

After years and years of trial and error I finally, (I said finally) got my home page like I want it; with 3 top rows of icons of allllll of the places I regularly visit. Icons may be a incorrect term. It's a little square picture with a f on it and when I wanna go to Facebook I just click on that little square f and go straight to Facebook. Ain't that neat. Well, this morning when I logged in, two of the rows were gone the row that's remaining the squares keep moving around. Anyway, I want my 3 rows back and locked in place like it was yesterday. Probably never happen, huh?

When opening Firefox on a desktop or PC, my homepage does not load, instead it opens a blank tab. It does this on every desktop version of Firefox across multiple PCs, but does not affect my mobile browser. I have tried changing my homepage to a different site, and toggling the setting between opening blank tab and opening with my homepage. I have also modified the settings in the config (see attached screenshot) to try and get it to open with my homepage to no avail. Has anyone else had this issue, and if so how did you resolve it?

Upon upgrading Firefox to v67.0.1 (Arch Linux Package), I get borders around all web pages I open. This does not happen on the "Firefox Home" page. The border is purple because I am in "Private Browsing Mode". I don't know what's causing this, I've looked around a bit, but have neither found a solution nor a post describing a similar problem. This does not happen when using Firefox v66.0.5. Till now, I've stayed on v66.0.5.

Thanks in advance.

Flash player is either screwed up or something else - or Firefox is blocking videos. Having experienced problems (videos just sit there or won't load at all) I've just uninstalled Flash Player and am attempting to reinstall a new version - but it won't let me. Seemingly there's another version being loaded - but no way can I find that or know what's happening, so I'm stuck.

The whole thing stems from my inability to watch any videos on Firefox - not even YouTube, BBCi LiveLeak clips or even porn. Yesterday everything went well but today I can't even see gifs on Imgur. What the hell is happening? Why is Firefox blocking me?

Mozzella updated something, and then I get a window that says I won't get the extensions unless I do something. Then I get the instructions about what I am to do and it's like a foreign language. I would like to use private windows sometimes, but how do I do that (and are they really private)? And by the way, Mozzella, what in the world is an extention??? Do I want it? And really, a card? Cards reside in the box that sits on the floor! Yes, I'm using a desk top computer. I have a lap top, an I-Pad and a Smart Phone. I prefer the desk top when I have a lot of work to do! Believe it or not, I used to teach computer stuff for the Federal Government. Things have changed and you can be thankful I don't work for the Government anymore. But please help. Life goes on when we retire.

I am a daily Firefox user and I never faced an issue like this before. I got my new laptop installed Firefox in the beginning it worked for weeks perfectly with the plug-ins I was using on my old PC as well. Everything was working very smoothly but nowadays I am facing issue where it takes too long to load any websites. Even it takes to load and complete the process to connect it to google.com around 10 seconds for sure. I refreshed it once then I tried same issue as before, reinstalled it again nothing worked out for me. I have pretty good internet setup on my home. Is there anyone who is facing the same problem these days or am I special? I want to overcome this problem quickly please help. Thanks.

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS up-to-date daily. Last update FF Nightly 68 of 2019-june-9.

After a general "freeze" of VirtualBox witch crashed my Ubuntu, I restarted the PC and since I cannot start Nightly any more. I receive the message : Erreur d’analyse XML : entité non définie (NB : In english it would means +/- : "undefined entity") Emplacement : chrome://browser/content/browser.xhtml Numéro de ligne 50, Colonne 1 : <window <="" id="main-window" p=""></window>

I've tried using the option "-safe-mode" but it starts my FF 67 in place of Nightly 68. Without any saved tabs.

I know that I can install the latest Nightly over (or even remove) the current installation and be easily okay BUT frankly there is about 60 tabs and some "page mark" I'd like to be sure to get back before doing something extreme.

N.B.: The "Troubleshooting information" file below is FALSE as it is from my current FF and not the Nightly I cannot start anymore.
