So, I installed a new hard drive about a week ago and while re-installing things I also re-installed the Firefox Browser 64- bit. Strangely, it seems like the files did not install itself in the right areas or the files installed did not install themself in the right or normal places. It does work, but for some reason I don't see it's program files? Is this normal or something that happens?

Anyways, I've backed-up my bookmarks, and I am going to uninstall it, re-boot, and re-install it and see what happens I guess. Or should I uninstall Firefox and its Profile Folders also, etc, and than re-install it?

In Windows 10, Audible throws this error:

An Error Occurred An error occurred during processing. Please close this window and try again.

Other browsers are fine. Other media in Firefox such as BBC Sounds are fine. I cleared the history, then reset Firefox. I thought it might be an issue with the latest Realtek driver, but I could not roll back all Realtek drivers. So I installed an Asus DS Xonar 7.1 PCI soundcard. This shows exactly the same problem.

Thankyou.

For the last month or so I'm constantly having issues with messaging on Facebook and with playback on Youtube.

On Facebook my messages are often not sending (I sometimes get a red "couldn't send message" tag under the message(s) I've tried to send; other times whatever I've tried to send just disappears without trace); also often my chats do not show up properly and they also don't sync properly with messages on my android phone. (Both my Firefox and my Messenger app are up to date.)

On Youtube I get issues with video playback (I have a premium account on Youtube): the videos sometimes randomly stop mid-playback and they either continue after 5-10 seconds or they just never continue at all. If the video quality is set higher than 1080p this happens more often. Other times the image freezes, but the audio keeps going. When I've watched a video and I press replay/play again, the video and the audio are delayed. I have an 11th gen i5 processor with 16 GB RAM and 250/25 Gb/s internet connection. To my knowledge all drivers are up to date. I've been chatting with Youtube support and they were adamant that I need to change to Chrome browser because this is Firefox's fault...

Also, when I use Facebook or Youtube, Firefox consumes a TON of resources (almost all resources) and makes my laptop run hot.

The only thing I can think of that might be an issue from my side is that I have many (and I mean many) tabs open in Firefox. But even after cleaning all history/cache and restarting Firefox and going straight to Facebook/Youtube, without touching any other tabs, I still have the issues with both - the two pages I use most. It's getting very tiring & annoying.

I'm using AdBlock Plus, but for Youtube it is disabled. (Youtube support wanted me to uninstall it... surprise, surprise...)

I hope you can help me find a way to fix this. Thank you

Roughly 90% of the time I am using firefox to access and export excel files from a site used for the back end of our point of sale system, the tab I am exporting from jumps to a random URL (usually for a utility company I use to pay utility bills through). I have to go back several pages to get back to the original. It is totally problematic, and fairly random and often the utility company URL will vary; sometimes it's the gas company, sometimes it's the power company....occasionally the internet service provider).

Started a few days ago.

Facebook, from bookmarks or freshly typed, does not like my password. States "password entered is incorrect".

This appears to be the Windows version only (126.0.1(64-bit)), as I can login from other, android, devices. Have not tried from a Linux version as none are current.

I have checked and FF does have the same credentials on each device tried. Attempting to reset password from the Windows version will tell me "something has gone wrong".

Cute, eh?

Filled out a form on a Japanese Retail Store website to contact them and couldn't send the message. Message just hung up all day. I think the connection is secure (icon next to Firefox address bar does not have a slash thru it so I think connection is secure). That Firefox icon says it is blocking trackers and cookies on the website and "Enhanced Tracking Protection" is "On". And got message in bottom corner of website saying "ERROR for site owner: Invalid domain for site key". Using up-to-date Firefox browser, Windows 10 and Windows Defender Firewall. (Tried Windows Edge browser and it said connection was insecure so I followed steps to connect to it like changing Privacy settings and switching to a Private Window but it didn't help.) What else can I try to use this Japanese website? (Note: website does not have an email address listed anywhere.)

A little while ago I noticed that the site I used to test my gamepads (hardwaretester.com/gamepad, formerly known as gamepad-tester.com) stopped working properly. I just assumed this was either something outside of the browser or the website itself was broken. Today I just tested with several other websites and browsers and confirmed that Firefox seems to be the issue. Even in Troubleshooting Mode it was completely broken.

L1, R1, R2, Triangle, Share, Options and the Left Stick seem to be the only things that function properly currently, with the DPad not doing anything and the rest of the face buttons/triggers hitting the wrong buttons. In the case of the right stick, L2 for some reason controls the vertical movement while the physical right stick still works horizontally. This controller works perfectly on the rest of my system, windows sees the proper buttons being pressed and games that support Dualsense work fine without any interference.

Below I have attached two images which show how the website I mentioned used to look, and the second image is how it looks now. I have a feeling some kind of update to Firefox's Gamepad API has broken this, somehow.

When I open Firefox (with administrative privileges) lt won't stay open, it just looks like it going to load my previous season (at least that's what should happen), but after a few seconds it just stops and closes, all at once? Also, I should mention; Firefox is updated, Using Windows 10. I've tried to trouble shoot a little . . .

— Reinstalled Firefox. — I manually delete the files in Startup Cache by navigating to the cache folder in your Firefox profile. — Reinstalling Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 - 2022 Redistributable x86 and x64.

Now, at one point it did open, and I decided to refresh Firefox (removing extensions and restoring to default settings) by going to 'More troubleshooting information' option, then clicking the Refresh Firefox button. Closed it, restarted my laptop, and Firefox, added my usual extension / add-on. (I was thankfully able to save my bookmarks or back them up).

When I was done, I closed it. But when I try to open Firefox, lt won't stay open, it just looks like it going to load my previous season, but after a few seconds it just stops and closes?

Should I just remove Firefox all together from my laptop, and reinstall it??

Windows 10; Firefox 126.0.1; DuckDuckGo search engine:

Drop-down suggestions a clever function, but entirely unwelcome in my universe. How to prohibit those?

The problem in DuckDuckGo search is that one cannot readily edit the original search word/phrase, as the suggestions take over that area; can't do a quick LnUp or LnDn, can't do a quick LeftArrow or RightArrow if a correction is needed -- the suggestions just decide to bully their way in at every inopportune opportunity.

I've changed whatever settings in Duckville that I can find, but it doesn't care what I need or think. I've changed the Firefox Search settings but that doesn't make any difference.

Any information/assistance out there?

Many thanks. Appreciated.

Hello,

My password saved are deleted every time I close FF. It used to be manageable because Google and other sites didn't require me to fill my passwords (cookies did the trick I suppose) but now I also loose access to gmail and Youtube every time I close FF. It's annoying to have to use 2FA every damn time. And keeping the passwords available.

I've tried every answer I found by looking around :

- tried to start in safe mode - disable hardware acceleration - I have no extensions

FF saves the passwords correctly (at least they appear in the saved password tab) but they are erased every time I restart FF. The cookies aren't automatically deleted (FF remembers my browsing history) but I need to relog into Google.

I getting frustrated.
