Firefox crashes whenever I go onto a certain web page such as a few parts of the discord website and some YouTube videos. I have tried nearly everything I can find which is somewhat similar to the issue I am having. I tried disabling WebGL, tweaking security.sandbox.content.level, reinstalling, checking my add-ons, and rebooting my macbook (macOS 10.13.6). The same thing happens on safari, but not chrome.

The crash reason stated is: EXC_BAD_ACCESS / KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS Here are the crash reports: bp-e8779820-e621-4739-a43e-e392a0210505 bp-29a6f662-0f4c-44d4-afbd-5e5900210505 bp-9ce6f8a8-6ddf-4771-824e-f94280210505

Why does FF not have a 'tab to search in the address bar' function like in Chrome?

In Google Chrome, if you fill in the first letters of a website you want to visit, the browser will autocomplete the name and give you the option to press the tab key and search that website. Why doesn't FF have this function?

I know there is a system with keywords, but this is less efficient I think. You have to set up the keyword and then remember it. I don't think the keyword system itself is bad, but I don't see why there couldn't be a 'tab to search' function with all possible websites, in addition to the keywords system.

When trying to paste text in a message window this message pops up:

"Because of your browser security settings, the editor is not able to access your clipboard data directly. You are required to paste it again in this window."

I have no idea why and have looked all over the FF settings for something to change, but no luck.

I'm also suddenly having problems with TamperMonkey not running scripts even though it shows they are enabled.

I was able to past directly into the "Plugins" window below.

Win7 Pro, I'm the only user on PC.

Thanks.

WidevinCdm crashes. I have submitted multiple crash reports but not sure if any went through. There was no pop-up window or any field to describe the problem like what the 'Learn more..' link says when the crash occurs.


I have already seen other reports of this problem (e.g. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1334218 )


Crash seen on:

Firefox 78.10.0 Mac OS 10.9.5 (Can't upgrade further on existing HW)


I don't like the recommendation on the above URL to install an older version of Firefox. We never tell anyone to go back to old versions of our SW if the bug is created by the new version. For me, the crashes started right AFTER I upgraded Firefox to 78.10.0. I was watching CBS shows. So the crash has a definite connection to the Firefox upgrade. I haven't changed anything else on my MacBook. I had no problem watching the shows on previous versions of Firefox.

To reproduce the crash, try to watch a "free" CBS show ( e.g. https://www.cbs.com/shows/fbi/ ). No subscription needed for a few episodes available for free.

I have firefox developer edition 88.0b9, I have disabled updates using policies.json(DisableAppUpdate: true), so the infamous "update to the latest version" popup with the green icon went away. But now it seems there's another form of those popups that firefox employs. And in the search bar this time. Why aren't they disabled by DisableAppUpdate? How can I disable them using about:config or something of the sort? Pretty sure I've got no malware or anything, always been careful about that kind of thing. Don't have many programs installed. Don't have any addons except an adblocker. All the buttons on that annoying popup lead to official mozilla resources: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/update-firefox-latest-release https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/ So what do I do with those popups? I have no intention of updating(I don't want any redesigns, any new functionaly, any other things that would disrupt me and change the stuff I'm used to). Only want to disable those popups. That's the entire reason I used policies.json - to disable those annoying popups. But now another form of them appears.

Hello,

I had this problem mostly on 1 site across multiple Windows installs. But now it happens on multiple sites. Text overlap each other. I Am using Windows 10 Pro 20H2, Firefox Last stable with only UBlock addon.

I tried: even troubleshoot mode didn't help!

- changing/flushing dns didn't help (heard dns could cause that)

Any idea why is this happening. It doesn't look like site issue, since recently it happened multiple times!

I have a problem with enabling two-step authentication for my Mozilla account. There have been several questions regarding issues with two-step authentication, but none of them applies to my case, so I started another one.

When I try to enable 2SA, there are seemingly no problems. When I scan the QR code and enter the 6-digit security code, I don't get the "invalid two-step authentication code" message. I do get the 8 10-digit recovery codes. After I enter one of them I get a prompt saying "Two-step authentication enabled" (see attachment), but nothing else happens. It seems like the process is stuck here and isn't completed.

I have tried setting 2SA from my profile settings (https://accounts.firefox.com/settings) too, but when I logout and login again, it says Not Set.

I wouldn't normally use 2SA at all if it hasn't been made mandatory for logging into Add-ons (addons.mozilla.org). Now, I'm locked out of my Add-ons account and can't access my extensions!

With Gmail open in Firefox browser, when I start typing the name of the addressee in the TO field, many addressees will not autocomplete, even though they are properly saved in my Gmail contacts list. I looked for common solution for this ... and found: use different browser. I did, and MS Edge works just fine. Is there a setting in Firefox that will fix this?
