Hello. I am having the same issue as another user, but they flagged their question as solved so I'm making a new one just in case.

I can't login properly to YouTube, only in Firefox, even after clearing cache and cookies and disabling add-ons/running safe mode. I can login to my Google account, view my playlists and recommended videos (although the main page with recommendations only shows 5 lines of videos and when scrolling further is not loading). I can't make any edits, for example add videos to the "Watch Later" playlist, that require a login. When I click login, Google shows the 405 error "The request method GET is inappropriate for the URL /youtubei/v1/browse/edit_playlist. That’s all we know." or with other URL, depending on the action taken.

What can I do? Thank you.

https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-09-24-23-54-18-679698.png

I can choose the sub folder to save the bookmark to. BUT I now CAN'T scroll down the screen to hit the save button. Because the bookmark window doesn't have a scroll bar or a way to make the bookmark window smaller. This is frustrating. Firefox is having other issues not connected with this issue. But the overall picture is getting me to the point of dumping Firefox and going to Google Chrome.

Hello. I've been using Firefox 81.0 with MacOS 15.7. I opened FireFox recently and after a few moments it froze, so I had to force quit. When I tried to open it again, it told me that 'A copy of Firefox is already open. Only one copy of Firefox can be open at a time.' However, I only have one copy open, or anywhere else on my HD. When I click "Okay" to close the prompt, Firefox freezes again and I have to force quit. I tried deleting the application using my existing Profiles folder. Again, it froze. I deleted the app and the Profiles folder, used Safari to download a fresh version of Firefox 81.0, installed it, and it ran for about a minute before freezing. Again, I had to force quit. And again, when I reopen it, the same prompt: 'A copy of Firefox is already open.....' I Firefox froze when I tried to close the prompt. I can't even reinstall a fresh version of FireFox. I don't know what to do. I'd greatly appreciate any help. Thanks.

I finally figured out why Firefox kept warning me about opening too many tabs at once: this command is the first option on the pop up menu when I click and hold a moment too long on a folder that is part of my bookmarks toolbar (some of these have dozens of bookmarks)

'Open all in tabs'

this is on my Windows 10 PC using Firefox beta.

Is this a command I can hide/delete/inactivate? I'm quite certain I've never wanted to do this and probably will never want to do it, and now on a machine where I use a mouse with right click it is disturbingly easy to click this accidentally. I want to disable the command entirely.

I did check about:config and saw nothing obviously relevant.

Similar to this article, "https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cant-download-or-save-files" I am unable to download any files via browser. I am up to date on versioning (Windows 10, v81.0 64-bit), and I tried all of the steps in the article.

I have also tried resetting the "security.dialog enable_delay" value (it was correct at 1000) to 0 and downloads worked again, but setting it back to 1000 (or even 500) and the problem returns.

I also noticed that whether or not I have the General Option set to "use this folder" or "ask each time", I get the same dialog box and the OK button is greyed out.

I posted also an image of the problem. The problem is temporarily fixable by clicking the application bar and then reclicking firefox. Is there chance to have a permanent solution to this?

Hi,

I'm used to deploying/configuring Firefox in an organization with settings in autoconfig.js, etc. Recently, I've seen that some settings are honored, others aren't, so I started using policies.json as well as keeping my autoconfig.js. Can they work together?

In any case, I am unable to disable app update with either of them. I have the following in policies.json:

{

   "policies": {

"DisableFirefoxAccounts": true, "DisablePocket": true,

       "DisableAppUpdate": true,

"DontCheckDefaultBrowser": true, "DNSOverHTTPS": { "Enabled": false }, "Certificates": { "ImportEnterpriseRoots": true } "PopupBlocking": { "Allow": ["http://10.215.144.56:8080", "https://intranet.mydomain.org"], "Default": true | false, "Locked": true | false }

   }

}

I'm also showing a snippet of my autoconfig.js file:

lockPref("app.update.auto", false); lockPref("app.update.enabled", false); lockPref("app.update.mode", 0); lockPref("app.update.service.enabled", false); lockPref("app.update.disable_button.showUpdateHistory", false); lockPref("app.update.url", ""); lockPref("app.update.url.details", ""); lockPref("app.update.url.manual", ""); lockPref("signon.rememberSignons", false); lockPref("extensions.update.enabled", false);

The problem is that when I start Firefox 78.3.0 ESR and go to the about Firefox window, I can see that the app update is not disabled.

How can I make sure that all the above settings in autoconfig.js are actually honored?

Thanks

Win 7 apps bring up “server execution failed” --after FFx 81 upgrade

Possible coincidence, but suspicious! Re: Firefox 81 [from the 100s of ‘hits’ I see here now, likely a Ffx bug]

Written from wife’s PC since mine is now crippled. I upgraded to Firefox 81 on my own PC, reluctantly, for “security” fixes, NOT for the big new feature I don’t want. Last night I downloaded v. 81 then closed Ffx and shut down the PC late at night. (It runs Win 7 with all the relevant updates I know.)

Today after booting, it showed my normal desktop. But my email app (located on D: drive) would not open either from shortcut or from Programs menu. Same for all the other apps I tried to open, even on C: drive, including ms_Office. Almost any app would bring up “server execution failed.”

Now, after a few hours on “Sleep” then reopening: --Nothing but a black screen (w/cursor) for 5-10 minutes anyway; --Later a plain blue screen, in small type on lower right: “Windows 7 build [no.] / “This copy … not genuine” –although it came installed, straight from Dell!

I hope mozilla can help cure this in its paralyzed state – and get me back to v. 80.0.1 that worked!

When I updated to Firefox 25.0.1 all my add-ons were gone so I downloaded some of them again. My problem is with Flashgot when I downloaded it I can add the Flashgot (thunderbolt) sign to the toolbar, but the Flashgot media icon (which looks like a cinema reel) is not visible.

So basically when I try to add add-ons I right click on the Firefox toolbar which gives me the option to "remove or add items" by dragging them. So I dragged Flashgot media (called FG Media) (which is not visible in the menu by the way) and predictably was not visible on the Firefox add-ons toolbar

Anyone know what's up?

When I run Firefox it just churns away and expires. Sometimes, if I just leave it, after ten/twenty minutes it will run v, v slowly. I have uninstalled and installed Firefox. I have the most recent version of Avira [14] and have removed Firefox and added to permitted applications, still no joy. Am writing this from another Browser. Also if I close Firefox and then try to restart I keep getting the Firefox is running... Getting seriously annoying now. I can only assume that Firefox is not quite up-to-date with Avira's version yet. The other browser runs without problem.

Any attempt to get to gmail (from google search click on gmail, gmail or gmail.com in url, etc.) results in Unable to Connect -- Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at mail.google.com. This happens only in Firefox running on Server 2008.

I have been googling problem and have cleared cookies, and re-installed. Still have this problem.

I can get into gmail from IE no problem and from Firefox that is running on XP. It is just my machines that are running on Server 2008. This problem just appeared around November 21st.

Thanks for any help!

I put in my updated info, then when I hit submit, at least I think that was what was on the bottom, don't honestly remember, any way a screen for "Reported Web Forgery" popped up. I got out of there I did not go any farther but did my information go anywhere? Looking closer at the email, there it DHgate.com web address at the bottom. Please put my mind at ease! Thank you. I just need to know if my info went any where.

I have a sony vaio duo 13 which is a sliding laptop tablet hybrid. I run nightly on the desktop for all my web browsing because i guess i am what is called a power user. I need all the options and features that firefox gives us, and don't care for the barebones yet more fluid experience of the Metro app. My problem is that when I am using Nightly in Desktop it runs great, but anytime i close my screen (which doesnt close in the traditional sense, it folds the screen out) and transforms it into tablet mode, it launches the Metro version of Nightly. If i was using the desktop version it transfers all my tabs to the metro app. and when i open the screen to laptop mode, it simply closes everything. AFAIK i don't remember installing the Metro version... I can go to the Start Screen and find the metro app but i am afraid to uninstall it because i think it will uninstall the whole Nightly Application, which i dont want to happen. I created an administrator account and went to the MetroApp repository on the harddrive but there is nothing there related to nightly or firefox so i can't just delete it.
