Since today, Firefox is no longer loading the previous settings. Every time I open it up, it opens as it was newly installed.

I already did the following: https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1226076 To no avail.

What changed? I didn't change anything in my computer for this to start.

Thanks for any help.

I have had Firefox installed as a backup browser on Windows 10 Home Edition. Due to some strange and possibly non-resolvable issue, I keep having a problem with the Crash Reporter popping up stating that Firefox has crashed, even when Firefox has not been running *at all*. I updated to the latest version of Firefox; this resolved the problem for a few weeks but then Crash Reporter started popping up again. I might mention that when I do actually run Firefox, it comes up and runs fine, with no problem or crashing. I would like to know if there is some relatively simple way to disable the Crash Reporter itself from coming up.

Hello! I have an issue where there are two entries for the same device showing up when I click "Send tab to device." I've already tried logging out on this device, and the rest of my devices, and logging back in, but there are still two entries for it. I have also verified that there is only one device under this name in accounts.firefox.com.

Hello I am constantly switching between Bookmarks and Tree Style Tab in the sidebar. The toolbar button "Show sidebars" is fine for switching between sidebar displayed or not, but switching between Bookmarks and Tree Style Tab is not so convenient : i have to go through the small menu and select either Bookmarks or Tree Style Tab, which is two clicks and a mouse move away, boring when you are constantly switching... Is there a way to add a second toolbar button to do this switching (or have two buttons, one for Bookmarks and one for Tree Style Tabs) ? Hope someone has a solution, thanks in advance. Alain Coste

I stopped using Firefox because of the level of BS Big-TEch involvement and lack of PRIVACY. I've been using BRAVE. But they are'nt much better. So I'll switch between as I feel fit. Just so you know. My recent irritation is Shortcuts. I like the speed and convenience of CHOOSING & USING my shortcuts.

I do NOT like the option of "sites you save or VISIT" That is NO option. I DO not want YOU choosing to save every site I VISIT and loading onto my screen. This is not a choice. Just because I visit a site WHY do you save it to shortcuts? It's a PITA deleting crap I don't want.

You should ONLY save the sites I CHOOSE to add.

Not rocket science. WHY DO YOU CHOOSE TO DO THIS?

The Internet It's becoming less and less about what I want to know (Trying to get relevant search replies is harder than ever) and more about what you want to know about me.

MALWARE ? When you are collecting more data than you know what to do with it is Oppressive.

I can see my current usage of Firefox being cut short again at the point of annoyance with this parasitic tech.

Oh and the proccess of creating an account and passwords blah blah just to ask a question that changes sweet FA...... No wonder there's anger. Idiots.

Hi everyone,

I've noticed slow download speeds when using video downloaders on Firefox, especially for Pinterest videos. My site, PinVideoDownloader, has many users reporting this issue. Other browsers like Chrome and Edge don't seem to have this problem. Any tips to improve download speeds on Firefox?

Thanks!

I am on a Windows 10 Pro PC 64 Bit OS with 16GB of memory, running Bit Defender Total Security. I have used Firefox for many years and have never had a problem The browser is version 128.0.2 (64-bit). A few days ago in the application menu told me there was an update and said to install it because it couldn't check for updates. I downloaded and installed it three times now, but the problem still persists. My Bit Defender also keeps popping up messages telling me "firefox.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an unmatching security certificate to aus5.mozilla.org. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since the used certificate was issued for a different web address than the targeted one." I have had over 2000 of those messages in the past few days.

I have never had an issue like this before. Is there a glitch in the most recent update? What can I do to fix it outside of resetting my browser, which logs me out of my google accounts and causes me to not be able to get back into them.

Hello: Q1- I moved Thunderbird from my C drive to my D drive but...C drive still contains active content Thunderbird uses. I'm not sure about when I backup my profile folder, all the data is really being backed up? eg. C:\Users\mdc\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\cy4sug48.default-release

      F:\Users\mdc\ProgramData\Thunderbird\Profiles\cy4sug48.default

I also changed all my Thunderbird registry entries to D drive. I don't understand why C drive is still active?

Q2- When I choose Import from a Thunderbird profile this comes up (see attached picture)? This directory does not exist! Where is it coming from?

I am using the latest version of firefox (128.0.2 (64-bit) on windows11. When I open more then one music source, short interruption is done on the music. For example when I am listening musing via youtube on one tab, I am opening another youtube tab. So when I started the sound from the second tab, the sound from the first tab is interrupted for a while (100-500ms). It is not related youtube, I examined that situation with radio streaming channels via start-stop music. The result is same. While playing music goes on from Mozilla browser, I opened music from also chrome without interruption. Also more tabs on chrome do not interrups the playing music from Mozilla (opening more sources or single sources from chrome is not interrupting) The interruption is occurs inside Firefox (between tabs). When I start/stop sound from any tab, shorthly interrupts the playing sounds from other tabs Regards, Murat
