I haven't had to sign in for a while, so tonight when I tried and I typed the password in correctly the box just immediately closes and reopens like its incorrect. I have tried locating the key3.db and key4.db which I can't find on my system, nor can I find the login.json that is supposed to have the log of passwords to back them up. I don't have any 3rd party password managers and I've tried with my VPN disconnected. I've used the password generator to secure some of my websites so I don't even know was some of my passwords are, so resetting the primary password would be a huge hassle. If someone could please help me out I would be very appreciative. Thanks!

Access to Google sites (Gmail, Google Search, Google Calendar) with Firefox (v. 100.0, 64-bit) is very irregular. I can sometimes open the pages, but can't, e.g., edit calendar entries. Often when I click a bookmark (in the Bookmarks Bar), or enter the URL for a Google site, nothing happens. Clicking other bookmarks opens the corresponding pages. Only Google sites seem to be affected. Is FF blocking Google?

I have Firefox 100.0.1 on my Mac desktop, and Firefox 100.0 on my MacBook Pro laptop. I can no longer access my Microsoft OneDrive account via the web on my desktop, but I still can do so on my laptop. I have gone through your posted troubleshooting steps for Firefox on my desktop, to no avail. How do I get my desktop back to version 100.0 so it will work again? I can access my OneDrive account via the web on my desktop when I use the Safari browser, so the issue is definitely with Firefox version 100.0.1, and not with my desktop.

Hi

I am using mozilla firefox on windows 10.

I sometimes fat finger ctrl+shift+w or ctrl+shift+q which closes the browser instead of just closing the tab which I indented.

Is there a way to disable these 2 key binds?

I have been having an issue, since just before the update to 100, where Google sites stop responding. Gmail will display banner at the top "OOPS - The system encountered a problem...", Google search from the search bar will do nothing, Google Maps will not load and any google web page will not load or refresh. Closing Firefox and restarting it will fix the issue, temporarily. At first I thought it was any web page, but I have tested other search engines and web pages, using Firefox while the Google pages are unresponsive, and it is limited to Google pages. I can open the affected Google pages with Edge, while Firefox is still "locked out".

Has anyone else noticed this issue?

My Firefox has suddenly stopped working when websites have menus you need to scroll through on the right side. Example: websites where you are drilling down through filter options, or in Ancestry where you will typically open a record in the hints screen and scroll down through the detail. The right scroll navigation causes the whole page to scroll up and down; there's no way to navigate down in the sub-display. I have run FF in safe mode, and done a scorched-earth uninstall/reinstall and the problem persists even with no plug-ins restored. This is on a machine running Windows 11. The machine crashed right before this became a problem. Sites work in Edge without issue.

From time to time I get an Error Overflow message in Firefox. Sometimes I enter the website directly in the address line and other times I click a link in an email and it tries to open in Firefox as it is my default browser. If I copy the address line to Chrome it loads correctly.

This is mildly irritating as it puzzles me each time it happens.

I have attached a screen snip showing the error.

When navigating within retailer web sites, some clicks, such as searching for their nearest branch, consistently produce an Access Denied message, such as the following one:

Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://www.argos.co.uk/stores/?" on this server.

Reference #18.d639dd58.1652362340.afeb7586

I get a similar response when trying to open some web sites, such as Sainsburys.co.uk which has just responded with the following 403 message:

403 ERROR The request could not be satisfied. Request blocked. We can't connect to the server for this app or website at this time. There might be too much traffic or a configuration error. Try again later, or contact the app or website owner. If you provide content to customers through CloudFront, you can find steps to troubleshoot and help prevent this error by reviewing the CloudFront documentation.

Generated by cloudfront (CloudFront) Request ID: 0n5le1zhQCuf0_pKJpVKjuKasKFKRNYhMr3zpIde_UuAx0dBE1hhlw==

Are such searches controlled via Firefox? If so, do I need to change a Firefox setting to overcome the problem?

I haven't used my microphone in Firefox in years. I tried today, logged into Google Voice, which tells me it can't access the microphone. I set permissions in Firefox's settings. I turned up all the mic settings in alsamixer. I tried https://mdn.github.io/web-dictaphone/ , recommended in another thread here, and it doesn't record either. I can use the microphone outside X, with sox's rec. I also can't record a new greeting in Google Voice.

Just now, I tried to use "Email Link..." under the File Menu and got a pop-up asking me to "Choose an application to open the mailto link." I have seen this before, several times, and usually fix it by going to Tools > Settings, under General > Applications, select "mailto" under Content Type, then select Gmail from the drop-down menu.

This time, however, Gmail is not presented as an option, in this pop-up. Clicking "Choose..." just opens up a Windows Explorer file-picker window.

I tried to fix this in Tools > Settings, under General > Applications. There, "mailto" just shows "Use other..." and if I click that, the "Select Helper Application" pop-up window is basically blank, with a message at the bottom saying "No applications were found for this file type."

I refreshed Firefox but it did not solve the problem.

I have tried to attached images but they will not upload.

Hello,

I have been unable to watch Netflix or any "other" video content using the Firefox browser for the past few weeks. I've been pulling my hair out while working through the help articles, alongside bouts of furious googling - all to no avail.

On Netflix I am getting error code F7701- 1003. Netflix is telling me to use the latest version of Firefox, but I have been checking for new updates almost every day since I noticed this issue. My current version is 100.0 (64-bit) On other website I'm getting the error message "No compatible source was found for this media."

I have followed all of the fixes listed on the following articles, but so far have not been able to fix my problem: Fix common audio and video issues Fix video and audio problems on Firefox for Windows N editions

If there is anything I haven't tried yet, please let me know.

Having any google related webpage open for more than a couple of minutes causes it to disconnect (gmail, calendar). This results in no connectivity to any Google services. Opening new tabs will refuse to load even Google.com. The only fix is to completely close out of Firefox and relaunch. But having gmail open for a few minutes will result in it disconnecting again.

The issue persists in 'troubleshooting mode' as well as after doing a refresh. I have experienced this now for the past couple of weeks on my Windows 10 work laptop. I have also seen this on 2 different Linux machines in the past few days. I had attempted to disable http3 and telemetry settings from an older post I had found, but no luck. Not sure what else to try at this point.
