My homepage is set to open a customised page on Startdotme This worked fine until a few weeks ago. However, now when I open Firefox it opens on a blank page. I can go to my homepage manually by clicking the homepage icon.

If I use safe-mode to start Firefox my home page loads correctly. However, even if I disable all my add-ons I still have a blank page on normal start up.

I have worked through the checks that have been suggested elsewhere on the forum for similar problems but without any success, which is why I have now posted this as a new question. I do not have Advanced SystemCare which has been suggested elsewhere as one potential cause of this sort of problem.

Any help gratefully received!

Since downloading the latest version, the browser stops functioning after the first site. It won't even allow me to quit, without the 'force quit'. Plus, while in the first site (my local newspaper) it stops recognising key strokes and mouse clicks. In fact, everything stops working.

I'm sending this through Chrome.

Any fixes?

Thanks, Stan Nikolic

I've run into a strange issue lately - certain sites are left unable to sign in. I've tried disabling add-ons, clearing cache, cookies, history, lowering my security settings, adding site exclusions, disabling VPN, refreshing firefox, uninstall/reinstall, uninstall/clear data/reinstall/refresh firefox, everything. Still, nothing.

One site in particular is Dropbox. I enter my creds, it asks for my authenticator, error. So I tried in another browser and it works fine. So it's definitely a firefox issue.

I did disable my authenticator temporarily, and was able to sign in on Firefox. However the moment I re-enabled it, I'm no longer able to sign in again.

I have a few other sites that won't sign in either. Some give errors, some accept my password then refresh to the non-signed in page.

I'm at a loss. I've tried everything I can think of. And confirmed all sites work in other browsers.

Starting this week, Firefox syncing doesn't seem to work anymore at a particular place I visit every weekday. I mean, I can still log into my Firefox account, but nothing syncs: not extensions nor passwords nor bookmarks, even if they all have check marks next to them in about:preferences?entrypoint=fxa_app_menu#sync.

Is there a test I can run to see what's going on behind the scenes? Thanks.

I just installed Firefox (64-bit) v 78.0.1.

Here is the problem---> I am trying to delete individual items/urls from the search drop down menu. The usual/previous way to do this was to use the cursor to highlight the item to be deleted and click SHIFT+DELETE.

This does not seem to work. Additionally, when I went to the HELP page to discover how to do this, it indicates using the procedure above--which does not work.

I've been using firefox for many years now without any trouble. But just last week, I found it takes a very long time to load even a simple web page. For example, google.com takes 4-5 minutes to just show the text, and 7-8 minutes to fully load. I also use Chrome and it does not have this problem. I've already tried "refresh firefox", and uninstalled all plugins, and it is still slow. I am using Firefox version 78.0.1 (64-bit) and using Windows 10.

Hi :) I have a problem with FireFox and I hope someone will be able to help me sort it out :) After the last update there is a new "feature" that is driving me insane and it's slowing me down to the point I'm ready to ditch FF. I'm talking about the "Open with Firefox" option, under "What should Firefox do with this file?". Is there any way for me to remove this "feature" from the dialog and to revert to the old "Open with..." and "Save File" list? Why is this thing there in the first place, I wonder?!

Thank you for you time and help!

Hi! I recently found that in new versions of Firefox (from 77.0) display profile support doesn't work for calibrated displays even if it is enabled in Firefox options. The last version that supports it, and thus showing correct image colors on calibrated displays, is 76.0.1. How can I enable it in new version? I usually set up it this way, and it worked before: - go to about:config - set "gfx.color_management.enablev4" parameter to "true" - set "gfx.color_management.mode" to "1"

I’m building an Angular application that is using OAuth2 Auth Code w/PKCE. The app uses hidden iframes to silently renew access tokens. I found that when the OAuth2 authorization serve redirects the iFrame to {parent origin}/silent-refresh.html with a 302, Firefox does not send any cookies set with SameSite: Lax.

SameSite: None cookies are sent as expected.

I compared this with IE and Chrome and both of those browser send the Lax cookies on when redirecting due to a 302.

This problem seems to only occur when the iFrame is being redirected via 302 from a different origin. I.e requests from a basic iFrame to the parent page origin send Lax cookies with no problem.

Anyone experience this? Is this expected behavior for Firefox?
