I have seen multiple references to this problem but no clear solution. Should this file in the system32 folder be replaced? (saw a video saying this solved the problem) Is this a Firefox problem or a windows problem? (Windows support did not know exactly what to do) I have used Firefox forever and would like to keep doing so but there is a limit. Please provide some advice. I haven't had a Windows problem for so long I forgot that they happen.

password listed in the saved logins is correct, but it does NOT export to the bank a/c correctly - it adds one more character, and since I can't "view" it there I don't know what it adds! when i copy and paste it from the saved logons page, it works - but the "automatic" entry onto the bank's sign-in page is not correct, and I can see it has one too many characters there.

I saved a lot of pages using the option "Save Page As", mostly Reddit posts. The problem is, each time I try to open one of these HTM/HTML files they just don't load properly. The page loads properly for a split second and then the "body" of the page (by body I mean the main part where the content is) dissapears.

At the beginning I thought it was a Reddit problem, but I tried with different sites and it's always the same result or even worse. I opened these HTM/HTML files with different browsers and the result is also the same. In that moment I was using something lower than Firefox 105.0.0, now I'm using 105.0.2.

I would like to make this files work, but if that isn't possible, I'd like to extract the URL from this files so I can still read them and delete them later, but I need a massive way to extract these URL because I have over 1000 of these files. Thanks in advance.

Hi, I tried to update my Firefox Accounts secondary email, but I got the error message This email was already confirmed by another user." That does not seem likely, as no one else has access to my secondary email account. Obviously, there's something I don't grasp here. How do I fix this?

While exploring about pages in Firefox, I came across about:profiling. I'm not sure what exactly it does, but since I've been to it, a profiler icon has been added to the toolbar and I can't find any way to get rid of it completely (only ways are to hide it). If it could be added, there must also be a way to remove it? How can I close it?

I need Firefox_ESR 52.9 which is the last release that supports an add-on I need for a standalone application (i.e NO INTERNET) to run on 32bit and 64bit Debian Bullseye Raspberry Pi. I don't know if it can be done but I want to try and see if I can build it. I downloaded the source. I'd like to consult with documentation first but the README.txt file points to two pages that don't exist anymore: https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Mozilla_Source_Code_Directory_Structure http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Build_Documentation

If anyone can provide me with the documentation from their way-back machine and/or assist me, I'd be very appreciative.

The application needs the original mkiosk add-on (not the current one) and this is the last Firefox revision to support it. The application is something I provided to our museum and I wrote the hundred+ web pages for it but it was written for wheezy, not bullseye and I want to run it on an RPI4 instead. I donated hundreds of hours of work as well as all the hardware (including a touchscreen monitor) to the museum. I have no intention of otherwise using the application except for similar projects or selling it for any reason whatsoever.

Actually, what would be more wonderful if someone had ported that mkiosk version to current Firefox. It has some unique features.

All my work on this, and other applications I have written, have been freely donated and, at my age, I don't intend to change that policy.

Firefox stopped working today. Every time I launch it, it responds with: "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window."

I launched Task Manager and killed the active processes, relaunched ff - did not resolve the issue.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled ff multiple times - did not resolve the issue.

I have removed the lock as per here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-already-running-not-responding#:~:text=Right%2Dclick%20on%20an%20empty,it)%20and%20click%20End%20Process.

I have verified the access rights as per here: https://www.minitool.com/news/fix-firefox-is-already-running-but-is-not-responding.html

I have completely removed all the mozilla entries from both Program Files AND in the registry, then reinstalled. did not resolve the issue. registry instructions from here: https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/s9lguc/how_to_completely_uninstall_firefox/

I have tried to delete existing profiles AND create a new profile but I always get an error: "An unexpected error has prevented your changes from being saved." https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-remove-switch-firefox-profiles#w_start-the-profile-manager-when-firefox-is-closed

I'm out of things to try. Hate to abandon Firefox but I'm at the end of my capabilities.

For years I've set the background display color in about:config to a medium gray, #CCCCCC. Main purpose was to change the background color of the about:blank page, which is my home page and my new tab page.

Note I am not overriding colors; #CCCCCC only showed up as the bgcolor for about:blank. Occasionally websites which forgot to specify a background color would show up with a medium gray background, a minor inconvenience and a hint their coding was not so great.

Just realized my background color selection for about:blank isn't working anymore. The background color of the about:blank page is white. Not sure when it changed. I failed to notice when the medium gray disappeared because I have been reflexively pressing the dim screen button. I have vision issues and need to avoid a white screen.

There was a question in 2021 about the about:blank page bgcolor turning white which was archived but does not look resolved.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1344438

Does about:blank now specify a bgcolor, overriding my about:config setting? I still have browser.display.background_color set to #CCCCCC. Do I need to change another value for about:blank now? Thanks for your help.

Hello, I use Firefox 105 on my PC. I have embedded various YouTube videos on my website. I've had the following problem for a few days: I can see my videos on both my smartphone and tablet without going to YouTube. On my PC (Win 10 Pro Vers. 21H2) the display wheel "rolls" without opening the video (... "an error has occurred, try again later"). But if I click on: "Watch on YouTube" plays the video via YouTube correctly. Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this? Is there a wrong setting in the Firefox browser? Many thanks and best regards Helmut

I can't open any youtube shorts, because I get redirected to anti-war videos, or some random videos that got a million views (which I'm guessing they got from other victims of this malware).

I've disabled all extensions and even plugins, restarted Firefox, but the problem persists.

I have an anti-virus installed (Kaspersky), so I'm at a loss of what this could be.

Is there any way to trace the source of the redirect?

ONCE AGAIN, I am having Hotmail issues through Firefox, and ONLY through Firefox!!! I had to go to PALE MOON AGAIN to use Hotmail. This is getting REALLY irritating. I can go to ANY OTHER website through Firefox with no issue, but Hotmaill? Oh no, of course not. Your damn browser refuses to cooperate and Hotmail just sits there for the past TWENTY-FOUR HOURS with a waiting symbol and stalls out, refusing to do ANYTHING to refresh the page, and when I try and open an email, Hotmail says, "We're sorry, we can't display that message right now." But when I use Pale Moon, NO PROBLEMS WHATSOEVER!!!! FIx your damn browser to work with Hotmail CORRECTLY this is YOUR problem!!! Since it works FINE through Pale Moon the problem is OBVIOUSLY with YOU!!! I am so sick and tired of YOUR BROWSER stalling out and causing issues ALL THE TIME! DO SOMETHING!!!

Hi,

I have been using Firefox and Thunderbird for ages now. In the good old days, the automatic update function worked in both Firefox and Thunderbird. However, for at least a year now, neither Firefox nor Thunderbird installs the updated version(s) whenever they are available. Please look at the attached screenshots of my respective settings.

These days I am always warned by a third application that either or both Firefox and Thunderbird has/have update(s). Then I have to install the update(s) manually.

I would appreciate your feedback or advice.
