Storing the Firefox user-profile on a SMB-share not working

Hi,

I have a problem with Firefox 102.5esr on MacOS 10.13 and storing the user-profile on a SMB-share in the intranet.

On startup I get the error "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional" and as expected, bookmarks and history are not working. Access etc. in the network are correct, I tried it with two different clients on two different servers (Linux-Server and NAS), the profile is a fresh created, deleting and recreating does not help.

If I copy the created profile on the local disk, Firefox starts without an error, bookmarks/history are working, if I copy this profile back to the SMB-share, I get back the error-message.

In the past (I don't remember when it was and which version) this was working with Firefox and today it still works with the current Thunderbird.

Any ideas?

PS: The described solutions in the KB are not working: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-bookmarks-and-history-will-not-be-functional

Thanks, kind regards, tg

I recently switched to WordPress for site hosting, and set up their Titan email. It's worked fine for the first couple weeks, but yesterday after I did a routine clear cache and cookies, my email became a blank white page. The URL looks correct. Have spent several hours with WP help to no solution. Email works fine in Chrome, and all other WP functions are fine in Firefox.

I am operating in macOS 10.13.6 [the latest my iMAC will accept] using Firefox, and MSN.COM's Outlook E-Mail client. Usually when you "hover" over the e-mail sender's name in "FROM", their URL is produced -- very useful to check for spoofing of legitimate sites. This week I've received several e-mails where this did not work. Is this a new spam tactic, and are there any solutions ? Any thoughts ??

Thanks for your help and be well, John

Please see attached screenshot. I have been logging onto my Online Banking with Nat West and when I log out I am now getting the message Firefox cannot open this Page. I should see the Nat West page again straight away showing I have logged out of my Online Banking. The message refers to a security issue that a website has embedded onto the Nat West website.

When I use Safari the message does not appear which indicates to me it is a Firefox issue.

I am not certain what I should do to resolve this issue is this a Firefox issue or Nat West issue or a problem with my Mac computer.

Please can you advise me what I should do next to resolve the issue.

Thank you

Since the lastest "update", (version 105.0.1) I can no longer access my messages inboxes on Fiverr.com. I get a drop-down message telling me that the website is slowing the browser and advising me to stop the page. Are you kidding me?! I'm TRYING to get some WORK done here! If I can't do it with Firefox, then I'll just have to quit using Firefox (again!) until you fix what you broke. You are interfering with my LIVELIHOOD here and I'm not having it!

On my Mac running High Sierra 10.13.6, Firefox version 05.0.1, Gmail loads and I can initially click on one email and view it but thereafter nothing happens when I click on any other. If I reload the page, it will work just open one email again. I believe this started when I upgrade Firefox. Notice in my screen capture how two items are selected.

My homepage is a .php file stored in a directory on my personal website which has Directory Privacy. Every time I launch Firefox I am prompted to provide my credentials. These are saved in Firefox, but why am I always prompted for them? If I access the same page using Safari, Safari does not prompt for username & password but goes straight to the desired page. My site is on a Linux server & Directory Privacy is set through cPanel.

I set Google as my default search engine. However, when I open Firefox, I see a box that says "Potential Threat Detected". The page is headed with a wifi symbol inside a blue shield and below that is says "Hold On!" We blocked access to http://www.searchbaron.com/v1/hp?aid=26025. This site might compromise your device or contain dangerous content. To avoid these risks, close this window and skip this site. Proceed anyway. The same message is duplicated in 3 other languages. So I open a new tab and close this one and everything works fine. Can anyone tell me what to do to stop getting this? I'm not computer savvy so please be specific. I'm not close to an Apple Store, but can get to one if I have to.

Good afternoon. My name is Tito, I had a lot of logins and passwords for the most of the sites saved in the firefox passwords. I went to another country for vacation and for some reason i lost all of my saved logins. Is there anyway to recover it. one of the advantages of having saved logins nowadays, and because all the passwords get more complex is to save it and in case we forgot we can always check it.. is there anyway i can recover it?? Thank you. best regards Tito
