[Win 10] A few days ago something happened with Firefox. A message appeared saying "sorry - error". Anyway, I had to rebuild the whole thing. But, the little house symbol for the Homepage Tab is missing. It isn't even available where the choices for Menu Bar appear. I did not cause this problem. My older pc, also Win 10 is perfectly O.K. Any "Help" just brings me back to the older information from 2011.

My firefox browser has had issues displaying fonts when I have the "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" box checked. Its not all webpages as some have more bolded fonts, but it is more than one site.

I have scoured these forums trying to locate an answer, but for some reason the fonts are still so thin and unreadable. I have even erased all existence of firefox from my computer and reinstalled, but the issue still remains.

Please help me.

I am not getting live site data like I should be getting on Firefox 94.0.2 (64-bit) . I need to refresh the page to get current chart data. It should be updating in real time. I access binance.us on Microsoft Edge and it works fine, I get live chart trading data on the binance.us site on Edge. How do I fix this?

I have inspected the page and I keep getting theses error messages. These messages come up in troubleshooting mode as well.

Firefox browser will not open. The FF icon is located in my taskbar (Windows 10). When I rest the mouse on this icon I see a very small representation of a website. When I click on the icon I see flash of some sorts on the desktop for about a nano second but the browser will not open.

I uninstalled FF and reinstalled. FF would open OK and I had no problems opening various websites. However, after I closed FF and attempted to open it up again it would not and so I am back to the original problem.

As I needed to access a website, I attempted to open Microsoft Edge and experienced the exact same problem. With the Microsoft Edge browser icon in the taskbar I can see a very small representation of a webpage but this browser will not open either.

Any assistance you can give me will be much appreciated, Con Van Dyk

i wish there was a "Comments" section on https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/mac/ so i could tell people "NEVER use this!!"

i tried last week, downloaded and installed. The installation process, after unpacking the download, tried to install a "helper application". Popped up a dialog box asking for an admin userid+passwd. (even though i was obviously already running as an admin user... because i was in the middle of doing the install.) This was not an iOS dialog box from Apple, and it didn't have an option for scanning my fingerprint; this was something the "helper app" was doing on its own. Well i gave it my userid+password, and it went on to say the installation failed, and bombed out with no Firefox installed on my machine. Now, for all i know, my credentials are out there, God only knows where. So i had to go change my passwd on all of my machines.  :(

I just turned off AdBlock Plus in the Add-Ons screen and downloaded ublock origin to try it out. There is no icon for this new plug in to be found anywhere. I can manually go in and change the settings on this plugin in the add-ons screen but there is no icon anywhere to go in quicker or to show a report of how many items were blocked. When I try to Customize my toolbars, the icon is not available there either. The nearest threads I can find on this topic are from 2018 and their solutions are very basic use. Yes, of course I restarted the browser. TIA.

Under: about:config browser.taskbar.lists.recent.enabled false

I have just made a Windows 10 system and I am not understanding the features now existing that weren't with Firefox on my Win7. I have turned the 'Frequent' off and now right clicking the Firefox icon produces 10 'Recent' listings. Being that I've changed FF's config to false, I do not know how to make these 10 'recent's permanently disappear. Right clicking one of these entities and removing only replaces with another.

Please help me to permanently remove 'Recent' from my right click of the Firefox icon in my taskbar.

I've found a number of sites that have numerous pages or servers that I can't enable the pop-up to work properly.

For example the site will have:

https://www5.site.com https://www.site.com https://www3.site.com

I can't tell which site will be pushing the pop-up so setting the above into the "enable pop-up" still doesn't allow the pop-up to happen.

I don't want to blanket enable all sites but rather use a regex or some wildcards to allow *.site.com to push pop-ups.

I've tried to use wildcards but the dialog box gives an error that I've entered an invalid website address.

How can I use wildcards to allow pop-ups from websites with multiple pages?

Thanks.

Hello - I've been unable to stream Twitch content on Firefox 94 for the last day or so, however, the issue impacts Youtube and Vimeo live feeds as well.

1. No outages in my area (Twitch works fine on my phone) 2. Tried Firefox in Troubleshoot mode (which disables all extensions) Twitch still broke. 3. Tried Incognito and Troubleshoot mode, Twitch still broke. 4. Cleared cookies and cache, plus Incognito and Troubleshoot mode, Twitch still broke. 5. Tried a different browser, Twitch works fine on Edge 6. I tried all of the above using a 4G Hotspot instead of my fibre connection, same issue

I’ve done some side by side testing of Edge and Firefox today, streaming the same content on each at the same time. Twitch runs fine on Edge. Twitch loads on Firefox and the chat looks fine. The chat arrives simultaneously on Edge and Firefox, it’s just the audio and video won’t play on Firefox. The audio and video don’t work on the ads either.

Watching a Youtube game stream side by side on both Edge and Firefox gives a slightly different result. Again, the chat feed is almost simultaneous, maybe a fraction faster on Firefox. However, while the audio and video run fine on both Edge and Firefox, there is a 15 second lag on Firefox. Both are playing full 1080 video.

So there is a definite issue with how Firefox is buffering audio/video content. The 15 second delay between the audio video stream and the chat I am seeing today with Youtube is what I was experiencing on Twitch over the weekend. I noticed it on streams that include a chat window on the video. I wasn’t overly concerned about the latency issue, as long as I had audio and video. Both of those stopped working for Twitch on Firefox yesterday. It could be that Twitch has slightly richer content than Youtube and that’s why Twitch isn’t working at all on Firefox?

OK, so I’ve installed the Twitch app for Windows and done some side by side testing with that. Interestingly, the app has a couple of seconds latency over Edge but it works fine. I shall use the app for now but would prefer to use Firefox if the buffering/streaming issues can be resolved.

I just had to disable my speed dial FVsomething and Eversync because I found out that it was spyware! Firefox tried to tell me this and disabled it but I put it back, and then my husband checked it out and found out about the spyware on it. I'm bereft. I've used that speed dial for years and it's been such a big help for me. I had over 100 dial all set up.

So my question is, what speed dial can I use in Firefox? Everything I checked out isn't monitored so what do I do?

Help!

My firefox suddenly and without warning blocked my start page, the FVD speed-dial addon. I honestly do not care why it did, but how do I get my pages back? I mean I would have appreciated a warning so I can save my pages and links, FFS! And speed-dial also synchronizes these pages across my laptops and mobile, so I lost everything everywhere, because Firefox is an ass??? How do I get the addon back along with my pages and links?

And sure, I don't have to use Firefox if it behaves likes this, blocking my addons without a warning first!

Damn.

HI I am using win 10 with the latest version of firefox. Yesterday when I booted into windows and started firefox it promptly crashed. I had made no changes either to the system or firefox in several days. Since then I have been unable to get it started except in safe mode and am therefore unable to enter troubleshoot mode. I tried my previous restore points but system restore failed with each one. I have run malewarebytes, adwcleaner and a couple of other programs but they all found nothing. My drivers are all up to date. As a last resort I did a clean uninstall of firefox and manually deleted the firefox folder. I downloaded a new installer from your site only to find that it crashed during install. However, using safemode, I did get it installed but it still crashes in normal mode. Below I've listed the last two crash ID's from the old version as well as the ID from the new one. bp-08805de5-865c-4c55-af1f-c79720211123 old installation bp-d76380c7-9f34-467e-a347-34a180211123 old installation

bp-a09ec77d-868b-4670-a455-ed2d60211124 from new installation

I would be grateful for any help as Firefox is the only browser I tolerate on my OS. If you need any further information I would be happy to oblige.

Thanks
