Every other browser is fine. Brave, Chrome, Edge, Opera.

But Firefox - zilch, nothing, blank screen. And when it did load Facebook, 99% of the times no photos showed and there was a text message in the corner of the photo holding area saying things like "may be an image of a boat" or it might say "may be an image of bridge"... etc...

Using Firefox 94.0.2 and I randomly can't load web pages. It will work fine for a while but eventually I get stuck loading the page. Restarting the browser seems to solve it for a while. This only happens with my Firefox browser on my organization's PC running Windows 10. The browser works fine at home.

I have tried various things, like deleting private data, re-installing the browser, using installed and portable versions, running in troubleshoot mode without addons & extensions, but to no avail.

I'm currently writing this in Chrome because Chrome doesn't have this issue.

I am absolutely devastated to find that my saved logins and passwords have all vanished from my account. I just uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox because the sync on my open tabs didn't seem to be working. But now ALL of my passwords are gone and I don't have them anywhere else because I thought I could rely on Firefox.

I'm logged in to my Firefox account but they are all gone.

How can I get them back? Please keep it simple if possible, I have no background in IT.

Thanks so much - feeling a bit desperate here and hoping there's some way to recover them all.

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.  :(

This is disgusting. This is not the first time this has happened. I support you financially and you are giving me a crap in my life.

I am TOTALLY disappointed in you.

I can't connect to any websites after clicking on a Manual LIbrary webpage that kept me hostage and would open instead of the website I was trying to get to. I thought it was a scam after doing some research on another browser. This Manual Library gave me two options. To decline tracking on everything or to accept. I clicked the two buttons to decline and now I can't access anything. I don't want to delete my history nor my cookies because I have saved a bunch of things but I think my history is now gone. Searching what to do tells me the only way to correct this being able to use Firefox is to not have my history saved but deleted all of the time and get rid of all cookies. I don't want to do this. What to do now?? I have had to download other browsers in order to use the internet.

Hi read your article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-to-fix-preferences-wont-save

I have changed the action for content type "mail to" to my default email app outlook. Despite this when I click on an embedded web page mail to link, the action reverts to the new office "mail" app which I do not want. When I get to the section in your article "User.js file overriding Firefox settings" as the next step in trying to fix the issue, and follow the instruction "Click the Firefox menu - and select Exit." then I am thrown out of the dialogue, it is not logical. Please advise as I don't even know if the user.js is causing the persistence?

Thanks Andrew
