Hello,

I have 4 devices (2 laptops, 1 phone and 1 PC), which I logged in to my Firefox account in all of them. I can see my bookmarks in all except for the PC (Windows 10). I can not see my pc under the connected devices from all other devices but I can not access my bookmarks from the browser that I am using on my PC. Can you please guide me how to fix this issue.

Thank you, Afsane

Firefox will randomly stop resolving google search results. At random times, no search entered at the top url bar will resolve. The browser will just change the text in the bar, and then won't do anything else. If there is a Google page already open, it won't load any links from the results. Google.com won't even load. This typically lasts about 2-5 minutes.

I've seen this in both Windows and Linux. Linux Builds I've tested were the Flatpak from flathub, the snap, the Fedora Repo, and the Tarball binary. They all had the same result after a while of using it. This also happens on both my home network as well as my work network.

I have cleared my profile by manually deleting the folder in appdata or in ~/.mozilla, and tested with no extensions and no setting tweaks. The only tweak I made is disabling DNS over HTTPS. If I change the default search engine to DuckDuckGo or something else, It no longer happens. but that's because it's not trying to access a google domain.

I have attached a gif of my issue.

Hi there I receive an email which claims to be from Firefox Monitor. Address is Firefox Monitor <breach-alerts@mozilla.com>

Picture is attached

I'm not sure this is legitimate as I have tried to log on to Mozilla Support but it does not recognise my email address.

Could you investigate and feedback?

If it is legitimate can kindly provide details of course of action to be taken.

thank you

Hello,

i have a problem with Firefox ESR and the management Webinterface of a telefon system (Auerswald COMpact5200R). The Website works with Edge, Chrome, IE and normal Firefox Releases - but not with the ESR Releases for example 91.2.0esr or 91.1.0esr.

When i open the website it asks for credentials. Then there is a button (think its a new frame), if i click this, it ask again for credentials (if you want to get admin rights). Normal users doesnt have these rights, so they cancel the dialog and get their configuration functions.

If i do this with Firefox ESR - the second popop for credentials show up - and if i cancel it, the frame/website doesnt load further.

I tried different settings for SameSite cookies or network.auth.allow-subresource-auth but (same settings than in normal Firefox releases) it doenst work. Sorry, but i cannot provide a public link for testing to the website, because its an internal management Interface.

What can i check next to get it work again?

Regards, Michael

Sometimes when loading a page, and the page is slow to respond, I will see a strange situation: The page is totally blank (the F12 tool does not display page content). The refresh button is gray (disabled), or sometimes although the refresh button enabled, the url textbox is "about:blank", which means I cannot actually reload the page I want to read. I have to re-navigate to the page through the link in the previous link. I'm not sure whether I got across. I hope the issue can be fixed.

The check box 'Ask to save logins and passwords for web sites' keeps unchecking itself. It used to work fine. Now, it doesn't. And consequently, the sub-item 'Autofill logins and passwords' won't work either.

Every time I open the browser to login to a website that has the login details saved, nothing happens. I have to go into settings every time and re-check the main checkbox (i.e. 'Ask to save...') in order to also activate 'Autofill...'.

This is really frustrating and annoying. Why won't the box stay checked? Hope you can come up with an answer. Many thanks.

The other day I downloaded SaveFrom.net Helper but then shortly after I deleted it. The program was deleted from the computer except that the green line with the program name shows as an extension on the bar at the top of the Firefox page.

I cannot delete it. If I delete it once it reappears next time I load Firefox. The extension does not show up in add ons and extensions in Tools Firefox.

I have read an earlier reply that suggests delete Firefox and reinstall Firefox and that will get rid of it.

However, I am not anxious to try that as over time I have already extensions ad add ons and other customisation of Firefox, including all my bookmarks and I don't want to lose these and start again.

So here is my question. As the program is deleted and as their extension does not show up in Tools and then adddons, can I assume that the existence of the program name as an extension on one of the title bars at the top of Firefox is just an irritation and that this SaveFrom program cannot in any way add or do anything to my computer?

I can then live with it rather than deleting Firefox and starting again.

I would be so grateful for your help.

Thank you.

I have Firefox set to restore all my tabs that were showing on my previous session. My question is are those tabs actually "open" and adding to the workload of the laptop every day when I power up again? When I do click on one it takes a while to actually open, but during that session if I go back to that tab it instantly is open. I have several hundred tabs saved this way at any time, but am assuming they are not open until the 1st time I open one each session. Thanks!
