Following the latest firefox update ,Jan 2020 my browser has practically stopped. I have used firefox for many years and have had no issues whatsoever. I have not added any extensions etc. To firefox in at least a year, or changed my antivirus. I have read that there was a high security update/patch very recently which I believe can slow firefox down, but I cannot work with the current speed. It is so bad I have had to use Microsoft edge! Can anyone help to get me back onto firefox? Many thanks, Paul

This morning I noticed new bookmarks on my desktop were no longer syncing to my Android phone. When I tried logging out and in again, I could no longer login on my desktop. Each attempt generates an "Unexpected error" message.

I have already tried the Refresh option from the troubleshooting menu. I also tried uninstalling and reinstalling. After both I am still getting an "Unexpected error" message.

I have also attempted to create a new profile, but attempting to enter an email address produces a 500 error.

Any ideas?

Is it possible to always show the tabs list menu button in Firefox?

When a window has only a few tabs open, the menu button for the list of tabs, which appears at the right hand end of the tab bar, is not shown. This menu button only seems to appear once you have more than around 15 tabs open in the window.

However, before you reach that number of open tabs, the individual tabs become quite narrow and it is still easier and quicker to choose a tab from the menu than by hovering over the narrow tab titles.

Is there an about:config setting or extension that will make this tab list menu button stay visible at all times?

Bit of a niche question hope someone can help.

I’m running some website testing and have a script set up to open Firefox at regular intervals using Selenium in python, run tests and exit. Running it in a MacBook using Catalina and have the latest versions of Firefox. I tried a different MacBook as well.

Randomly, after running enough tests, it will fail to launch, throwing and error code “can’t quit and exited process”.

Once this happens, I can’t open Firefox at all, even manually. The icon just bounces and fails to launch. Oddly enough, I can’t launch Chrome either, even if I haven’t launched it since restart. Restarting my computer will fix the problem always.

I’ve tried running in headless mode to, no avail. Any ideas here?

I want to export ALL the bookmarks in Firefox. I'm able to export everything except the Mobile Bookmarks folder. These are primarily bookmarks created on my iPad using Firefox for iPadOS. Every export to html excludes the Mobile Bookmarks folder. What's the secret, or does Firefox not support exporting Mobile Bookmarks? BTW... a json file does not work for me. I need HTML. Thanks!

I have a corruption of a “search” link in my bookmarks. I would like to learn how to , through software or other means, remove these thousands of bookmarks on the computer and then sync the good copy to the cloud. There is a special file Firefox produces on windows 10 machines that is large - due to this corruption? I would not like to delete the computer file since I would lose the good bookmarks also.

I have been using a very old version of firefox on my desktop. Now I want to update it, but to somehow keep an installation of a pre-webextension version. IIRC two different installations can't live within the same Windows, so I'm looking for a portable installation of the old version. (Running a second instance of the same installation is no help).

The problem is that I already have an updated portable app on my usb stick. I am wondering, if I save an old, portable firefox (on a separate folder) on the same usb stick that already has a portable firefox installation, will it cause any trouble to either?

I recently got a new computer and could not download Firefox. I have tried several different ways and keep getting the same results. On Microsoft Edge when I’d click download it would say the page can’t be reached. So, I tried Chrome, and it says that it isn’t connected to Internet. It is only when trying to download Firefox when I encounter this issue.

System: Windows 10 32-bit laptop

Problem: non-responsive UI on one laptop only. This includes inability to configure local options. nothing works. Menus drop down, but no matter what is selected, the selection does not highlight, menu hides normally but no action is taken by the browser

If I manually type in the url it sits there. no spinning cursor, nothing.

Browser does NOT crash... It simply sits there doing nothing. All other browsers work fine.

What I have done Restart the laptop Double check Firewall permissions Ran a scan before and after installation (0 threats found) Logged in as administrator as well as user account Ran performance monitor nothing alarming noted Uninstall and Reinstall. (Problem still exists)
