Lately every time I try and upload an image file from Firefox, the usual events happen i.e. an explorer window opens so I can choose the image, but none of the image files even show up as though they weren't even there.

This happened shortly after I was somehow signed out of firefox and lost all of my bookmarks, etc. so I'm wondering if this wasn't a hack attempt that broke my browser?

Either way Firefox is on it's way to being uninstalled if this continues because as a graphic designer I NEED to be able to upload images.

I'd like to have a shortcut (desktop icon, or maybe an FF tab) that will open my favorite music streaming site into a very small window at the lower right corner of my Windows desktop. But I want all other FF windows/tabs to open in whatever size they were in the last time I exited FF. In other words, how do I setup FF to open a specific site to a specific size/location every time it's opened, but still allow other browser windows to open "normally"? TIA

I'd like to be able to remove email/email image or just plain 'email' anything from the right click context menus. Time was, there was an add-on (called Menu Editor) that would enable precisely this.

I'd like to be able to edit my right click context menus (like I used to be able to), but at a push, I defo want to get rid of these email.... right-click context menu entries. :)

I've not set up local email and (as my email is presently unconnected to Microsoft/Windows 10 - and I want to keep it that way), any time I accidentally select an 'email to' right click context menu entry, I get the setup email wizard, which irritates the crap out of me.

Losing the irritating and redundant context menu entries would make browsing more enjoyable.

I figure there must be a way.... ;)

When editing Google Docs the tab crashes after entering some characters. Safe Mode helps, but I cannot fix the issue without using Safe Mode

I am using Windows 10 Pro 1903, Firefox 69.0.3 (64-bit)

When I edit a document in Google Docs after entering some characters the tab crashes. If I stay on the same tab it stops to respond and after a few seconds it works again and all the characters I have entered appear. if i change to another tab and then back to the Google Docs tab then some round "reload" icon is shown, tab reloads and all is back to normal. When I change to about:performance when the Google Doc tab is hanging then it does not show up there anymore. After it is reloaded like 10 seconds later it appears again in about:performance.

When I start Firefox in Safe Mode then everything works fine and I cannot reproduce the issue. I then tried to narrow down the issue by disabling Hardware Acceleration, disabling all the extensions, plugins and making sure default theme is being used. But the issue was still there when I did not use Safe Mode.

I then created a new profile and after that did not help, I uninstalled Firefox, deleted the program files folder manually, reinstalled but the issue is still there. I also deleted all the Firefox System Add-Ons but still no success.

The issue happens with my normal Firefox in Private Mode, too.

How can I troubleshoot this further? What does Safe Mode do in addition to the things I have mentioned above?

Why can't firefox remember my logins and passwords without me having to manually check this every time I open the browser?

Every time I open Firefox I need to go in and manually check "Ask to save logins and passwords". If I don't do this every page I go to where I need my password, I need to manually enter my password. After I check this, I don't have a problem.... but I would have expected that Firefox would keep my settings, even after I close the browser. This has been happening for years.... and yes I have the latest browser. Also I'm using Windows 10.

Hi community,

I sense some dark patterns here, but before witch hunting I would like to confirm here with the devs or the community. Here's the situation:

1) I have sync enabled; 2) I have logged into my Firefox account; 3) I have manually disabled "save logins and passwords" option 4) wait sometime, like, in days. 5) Firefox started to offer "saving logins and passwords" 6) The respective option under privacy has been turn on, without my acknowledgement.

Was that by design or an error?

Regards,

Quan

I went to about:profiles, and tried to follow the instructions provided to open a profile in a new browser, but as is almost always the case, Firefox had a problem with it, and started whining that I could not open more than one copy of Firefox at a time (attached).... Is this a joke, or has Firefox just completely lost its mind now?? I swear, I am two steps away from completely giving up on Firefox as a browser nowadays, because they seem to be so stuck on security that you cannot even use them as a browser anymore. Pretty much any and ALL convenience of the browser has been lost to the fact that they block almost everything, for one reason or another, and it is getting retarded now.... Can you do ANYTHING on Firefox anymore?? What is wrong with these people, and why are they destroying a great browser in the name of being overly careful?? Don't get me wrong, I am all for security, but not to the point where nothing works at all. There is a level of security that is helpful, and a level that is beyond necessary, which can completely break your experience. This is where Firefox has moved to now, it is getting to where its wants to be so secure that you cannot even surf the web anymore. Do I need to go over to Chrome, or are the Mozilla people going to get their act together, and save a really good browser, because I am sick to death of nearly EVERYTHING being blocked by Firefox for one stupid reason, or another!!

Everytime i start firefox after starting my computer I am logged out of all websites, for example youtube and netflix. I have tried every solution I oculd find online but none of them helps. I have cookies enabled and everything, but nothing works. This is why I keep having to download chrome, and its getting very annoying. It does remember me if I just restart the browser tho.

Been having issues w/Sync for several months. I get "Sync Failed" errors constantly regardless of it's an automatic or manual sync. This is happening on three Windows machines: a tower I built, a laptop, and a Windows tablet. I've even deleted my account, waited overnight, and created a new account, with a different user name/email, and when FF tries to sync, I still get errors. Sometimes the error logs say something about "size" but usually they are too cryptic for me to decode. I'm using a half dozen addons: noscript, ad block, smartup gestures, and a video downloader; additionally, I've probably got less then 100 bookmarks, so not sure what the size problem might be. Thoughts?

I want Firefox to autofill my saved addresses, but I don't want it to automatically save new addresses.

I fill in all kinds of forms, with variations of my name, address, etc., and with other people's info. Firefox saves those variations and autofill becomes effectively unreliable, filled with dozens of erroneous entries, until I manually delete all but the three I want to keep.

It seems silly that there is one checkbox to control both the saving and the filling. Can we get a sub-setting where I can uncheck “save new addresses that I enter”? Or is there an about:config option for it?

After deleting history for the past 4 hours (Everything checked) and closing that tab, I was back at the previous tab and I noticed right away that the back and forward buttons were grayed out, that was the case for all tabs of all windows. First thing I did was make a backup of the Mozilla folder (parent.lock couldn't be copied as it was in use), but renaming the recovery file (recovery.baklz4 and recovery.jsonlz4 were the only files) to sessionstore.jsonlz4 and putting it in the right folder didn't help. I also had a look at several files to see if there were previous versions available... unfortunately. Is there any hope?

I must mention that I'm currently on 70.0 (When I checked the version it started downloading and installing), and I had to restart FF before all this happened, so I may have been on a different version than 69.0.3.

Firefox stopped while i was on YouTube it asked me if i want to go in safemode or refresh Forefox. I didn't choose either. my first thought i was getting hacked that happens a lot on YouTube. then by its self it said it was going to refresh Firefox then the browser closed. when it came back on it was like i had just installed it. it was asking me all those questions. then it updated then closed again then opened asking me all those questions again then i signed in an all my passowords are gone again. Lucky for me i saved a back-up a few months ago so i only lost a few passwords. the spell checker doesn't work it keeps changing my set home page to Mozilla. I go to a website while i'm there i get that same message safe mode or refresh. now it doesn't give me that message it just refreshes its self without asking me and does it around every 20 minutes so i stopped setting it back up. but tis still doing it. so i uninstalled firefox cleanerd all the leftover files and resistry keys rebooted then downloaded a new copy of the forefox installer. then installed i answered all the questions then set everything up and before i could go to a web site it refreshed its self How do I make it stop? Its refreshed 2 times while i tried to type this so i had to write it in note pad then copy it then paste it here.
