I've encountered a very weird behavior: when selecting where to save a file or selecting a file to upload, the browser hangs 100% of the time.

Even when I go to about:memory, click Load, the path selection window appears - regardless of whether I select a file or close the window, the browser hangs and the window stops responding. I tried waiting for several hours - to no avail. Only restarting helps. Same with the upload selection window - regardless of whether I selected a file to upload or closed the selection window, the browser hangs. Before freezing permanently, the mouse cursor stops moving, then lags around a bit before recovering.

I tried cleaning download history, cache, recreated profile, restarted without extensions, in safe mode, disabled antivirus - always the same result.

Please advise me, maybe someone has encountered something like this - I really don't want to start using Chrome. My OS is Windows 11. Thanks in advance.

I added 2FA to my account on 10 October 2021, and recently bought a new phone with a fresh Authenticator app. I have all my backup codes saved already so I thought it wouldn't be any worries.

I was wrong, I've been facing this error for all the 10 different codes: Backup authentication code not found

I only have one Firefox account with 2FA, so I'm 100% confident this is the right account. I have access to my email associated with the locked out Firefox account and I can see the email mentioning that I activated 2FA on 10 October 2021, and there are no emails beyond that regarding my 2FA.

I am a developer who have published Firefox Addons - so I am not able to just create a new account, I need this account specifically.

I have the following info:

  • Email
  • Password
  • Backup codes (that don't work, I can provide screenshot of the codes upon request)
  • Gmail Access associated with the Firefox account

Help really appreciated, Tomas

Middle click on ordinary text links works as before. But on some pages a middle click on a button shows a vertical scroll up/down icon as when middle clicking outside the button, instead of opening link in new tab.

The problem begun Friday 29 September after I updated from previous esr-version (think it was 102.-something). I have tested on my old Windows 7 PC, and it worked fine before update, but same problem after updating to 115.

I have verified that about:config browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick = true.

One example from a free site: https://sok.riksarkivet.se/scb-fodda-vigda-doda?Forsamling=huddinge&Lan=0&DatumFran=1880&DatumTill=1890&Dokument=F%C3%B6delse The green button with text "Bild" is the problem.

Just fund that the green "Bild"-buttons on other pages on same site works just as before: https://sok.riksarkivet.se/?postid=Arkis+eef4e56e-60a2-4221-9c36-8a7a68280d28&tab=post&flik=1&s=Balder

Trying to use ProctorU with Firefox 104.0.2 on Windows 11 Home, and I am getting the following message : "Monitor Count : You may only use 1 monitor during your exam. Your monitor count could not be found". I searched for possible fixes, and someone mentioned removing fingerprinters, and possibly also remove cookies and tracking content from Firefox enforcement. I removed all 3 and that did not help. I also tried clearing cookies and site data and also cached web content, this did not help. Is there some other setting in Firefox that might be preventing the detection of the monitor count? Any suggestions on how to fix this issue?

Firefox tabs start crashing all of a sudden and won't stop crashing, until BSOD happens.

In my case it caused PFN List Corrupt Blue screen error.

How can I identify the real reason for the crash of the tabs, leading to the crash of the system?

The option to restore tabs and windows is no longer working for me. I normally have a dozen tabs I work thru every day. Yesterday when I shutdown Firefox, all those tabs were there. Today when I open Firefox it only had to single Firefox default homepage. Checking under History there is no option to restore previous tabs, and the recently closed tabs was empty.

To test, I opened an IMDB page and pinned it. I then went to Wikipedia. This gave me a pinned and unpinned tab. I shutdown Firefox via the "X" to close the window. When I restarted Firefox there was only the default homepage. Neither IMDB nor Wikipedia showed up under recently closed tabs and no option to restore the previous session was available.

I have operated Firefox this way for several years. I don't know why this behavior is no longer being supported.

I've searched for answers. I tried the About:config and changing some settings to false and others to true as suggested (e.g. browser.search.context.loadInBackground), etc., and of course I have the option chosen under settings.

This is a new computer. My old computer would switch to the new tab when I right click it, but this new one won't.

Any latest fixes?

I'm using a new laptop so everything is a fresh install. A few of the newsletters I've signed up for are now using GetResponse for their marketing. Any link I click on in these emails leads me to a "The page you're looking for doesn't exist" error 404. No matter what I try (disabling all extensions & setting Firefox's config setting 'extensions.blocklist.enabled' to false). Both of the companies that send the newsletters as well as GetResponse don't really seem to care and just blame Firefox. Can anyone help me fix this... if in fact it's something on my laptop that's creating the issue? I only use Firefox browser... nothing else and would hate to starting using some unsafe browser just to access these links. Thanks.

Had it yesterday, happened this morning after the restart and just NOW, when I entered 6 lousy tabs, and they are NOT in the recently closed list either.. wups, gone, no tabs, setting has a check mark on open previous windows and tabs. Within 24 hours, lost the tabs three times with a non reported crash and Firefox closing itself with no warning.

I honestly do not think I am responsible to keep a backup of my browser history, I expect a browser to do that. I switched from Opera to Firefox not to long ago.. even Opera is a security risk.. at least it doesn't delete your tabs just for fun.

Very simple.. that happens once more and i am OFF this browser....
