Opening up firefox last week am a message saying something was wrong/couldn't proceed (I don't remember the exact text). I tried to delete the message, but it just came back every time blocking opening firefox. I tried to restart it, but the same blocking message reappeared. I then uninstalled it and all my files disappeared, of course. I've today reinstalled it, but no history, etc.. How can I get my original web files back? Do you have a 30 day grace period where any file can be restored like the one Microsoft has? Can I get my webfiles back at all? Please help. tmr W10 64bit

I had a similar problem last year when an auto update came through. After several suggestions didn't help I opted to reinstall a previous version and upgrade that. Now it's back again with the v94 update.

I've disabled ALL extensions. No help. Themes don't seem to make a difference. However, when I went to about:config and entered "toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets" to make it true to allow chrome.css files to work it began immediately. Reset it to false and "X"s are back. Set config to TRUE and it screws up the "X"s. Again, all this is with all extensions off.

I hate the transparency of the tabs and menu bars so I need to set .css files. How else can I do it?

Windows 10 desktop user, Firefox says that it's up to date.

Background information: After running normally for most of yesterday, my computer entered sleep mode while I was having dinner and then had some sort of trouble coming out of it, forcing it to restart entirely. Only Firefox and Discord were open at the time the computer entered sleep mode.

Upon restarting Firefox, however, I noticed that my tabs were loading unusually slowly even after they had allegedly finished - switching between tabs often results in white screens with the circle in the middle of them for several seconds, and there is noticeable lag when attempting to open links or type in the search bar, among other things. This problem has persisted after restarting as well as shutting the computer down entirely before rebooting it.

Troubleshoot Mode made no noticeable difference, nor did clearing the cookies and cache afterwards. However, in my subsequent attempts to relog into several sites afterwards, I was unable to do so for both Google (via Youtube; the saved email fills properly but it will not proceed to where you'd normally enter the password) and, ironically, the mozilla/firefox websites itself, which claims I do not have cookies enabled.

(Which means that, embarrassingly, I've had to use Edge just to login here and ask this question...)

All the other websites that I've tried to login to have worked, though, so I'm not sure what's going on.

Can anyone help me?

Hello! I am using Firefox ESR in Linux Mint 18.3 32-bit. For convenience, a few years ago I've created a start menu (main menu) shortcut to quickly open a Private Browsing window. Before the recent switch from ESR branch 78 to 91 this shortcut was working as intended, but now, it opens a Private Browsing window and a regular browsing window. Here, I've made a short video about this issue that should help to better explain everything https://youtu.be/ccioyh0gJxA https://youtu.be/ccioyh0gJxA To some, this might seem like a non-issue, but I'd like to have a shortcut that would allow me to launch a Private Browsing window and a Private Browsing window alone.

I'm interested in listing what bookmarks are being synched. You'd think that's the dumbest question on earth. Obviously, just look at my bookmarks Ctrl+Shift+o. There they are. But that's not what I'm asking. I want to see what has been stored on the Mozilla site in the way of bookmarks. I want to see what Mozilla will send to a second device when I get on that second device & tell the Firefox on the second device to synch. And not just bookmarks. I want to see everything that will get downloaded onto the second device when it synchs. I suppose it depends partly on what the second device is: PC, phone, something else. But that doesn't change my question. I'd like to list what is on the Mozilla site in the way of synching data. It's all well & good to say it's doing what it needs to. I think I'm in the trust but verify camp on this subject.

When I try to post a pic on Marketplace in Firefox I select the .JPG picture and upload it. The picture I want to post appears fine before I upload it. Once I upload it to Facebook, it just appears as a solid colour. I have attached a couple pics, one is of the pic I want to upload and the other is the pic after it is uploaded. I should state that if I use Chrome or Edge, it works fine. And if I try to post a pic to my timeline it works fine. I just have this problem when using FireFox and trying to post to MarketPlace I know, well just use Chrome or Edge, I DON'T WANT TO :-) I want to use my FireFox. Ian

I just loaded your new Alias email into my Windows computer and now I the email to log into my Gmail will not show or open. How do I turn off my current email from being taken over by your software?

Should I delete the program all together?

Is there a way to tell the software which sites to keep?

This software has not been thoroughly tested out. Take it off and go back to the drawing board.

Thanks,

Firefox has arranged my extensions alphabetically. I would prefer to group them functionally, or at least be able to separate those which have similar colors -- for example, Grammarly and Evernote are both green and I sometimes click on one when I want the other. I would also like to have the one I use most at the far right of the toolbar.

This is a minor issue, but it's really annoying me. I like having certain pages pinned on the page that opens when I open a new tab; it's easier than always having to search through my many bookmarks for pages I use every day. But I find it really annoying and unhelpful – and also embarrassing, if another person is there – that Firefox only allows me to do this if I also allow it to display sites I've visited. The two should be completely separate in my opinion, like on Chrome. I can delete individual sites, but they're just replaced with other, even less relevant ones. So now I have a blank, useless new tab page, instead of a helpful one that shows me the sites I need to get to, because I don't want to risk a coworker, friend, or family member randomly seeing whatever sites I may have visited once or twice months ago. (This doesn't have to be extreme (porn, etc) to be embarrassing; I don't necessarily want people to see that I've been shopping for jewelry or hair dye or whatever.) It's just unprofessional and unnecessary. Thanks for fielding my complaint.

I have tried everything and cannot manage to load any webpage that prompts a reCAPTCHA. The tab immediately crashes.

1- I've tried several webpages. They all work well until a reCAPTCHA pops up, the tab crashes and creates a dump file 2- I tried uninstalling Firefox, including erasing profiles and all Mozilla folders then reinstalling, and selecting refresh. It sill happens. No addons or extensions, and HW acceleration on and off 3- The problems goes away if I run Firefox on Troubleshooting Mode

Version is 94.0.2 (64 bit) running on Windows 10 21H1 on an i7 1165G7

Am I missing something? Is there a way to do a cleaner install?

Thanks for the help!
