On several web sites (such as Google - but also on Mozilla Release Notes) right-clicking on a URL link displays an incorrect drop-down menu. See attached screenshot with Mozilla URL visible. This issue makes it impossible to e.g. open a link in a new Tab.

Same issue seen on Mac and Windows 10 platforms (Firefox 73.0.1)

After refreshing Firefox because of a different (and now solved) problem, I restored my Old Firefox Data to recover my customization settings. The problem from before remained solved as well, so don't worry about that. The only problem is that now, for whatever reason, I can't delete any bookmarks. I can still add and edit bookmarks, but I can't outright delete them. My version is 73.0.1 (64-bit).


I've gone to about:support and checked Places Database. This is what it gave me:

> Task: checkIntegrity - Unable to check favicons.sqlite integrity: Error: Error(s) encountered during statement execution: database disk image is malformed > Task: invalidateCaches - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: checkCoherence - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: expire - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: originFrecencyStats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: vacuum - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: stats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: _refreshUI - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task.


A solution that I've seen elsewhere is to delete the "places.sqlite" file after closing Firefox and letting it reset, but that hasn't worked. Again, I can add and edit bookmarks, just not delete them. It doesn't matter where I try to delete them from (within the browser), and they all still link to the right places. It's not an emergency, but I'd appreciate help with this.

How do I make Firefox quit ruining all VOIP services I use? It drops calls constantly, or flat-out rejects them. On all platforms I've tried.

TextNow, Google Voice, anything RTC.... Calls drop CONSTANTLY, and sometimes are flat out rejected before I even get a ring. It is obviously caused by firefox itself, too, not each and every individual platform can possibly be responsible for this issue. That would be absurd. Absurd, such as myself having to open up windows task manager and end Firefox manually so the calls stop getting rejected before they even ring. Another thing, why does this browser hog up SO MUCH MEMORY?!? It's ridiculous that this thing sometimes eats up as much RAM as a VM, on all of my machines. It's like I'm watching this platform become glitchier and glitchier over the years, and I just wish it actually worked like it used to. And before you even ask... I keep firefox up to date, I have uBlock and Strict Pop-Up Blocker installed, so please, nobody try to pass off blame to either of these add-ons. Because, frankly, these should be mandatory and included features on a web browser that does nothing but brag about how safe and secure it is for your privacy. I shouldn't have to be a software engineer to understand how to make this thing work.

HI..

I'm running Xubuntu 18.04.4 LTS & recently switched from waterfox to Firefox 73.0.1. I have been bugged by two problems that I haven't been able to fix myself & was hoping that someone here could possibly help.

[ Problem_1. Sync has stopped working.... ] Whenever I open the synced tabs sidebar all I see is "Connect Another Device". On android I'm running Firefox Nightly version 75.0a1 & I've signed out & then re-signed in, but still nothing. The sidebar stays the same as the screenshot above. Both devices show under devices & apps & I can send tabs between both browsers. I just cannot use the synced tabs sidebar. I use sync daily & hope to find a fix soon. Here is the most recent sync log from about:sync-log. >> https://paste.mozilla.org/cXGtysBQ <<

[ Problem_2. Cannot fully use Instagram.... ] I can access instagram.com & browse through the site without any problems. However if I try to like, comment, share or follow I constantly get "Action Blocked" popping up & whatever I've just tried to do has been unsucessful. I can confirm that instagram works perfectly on both chromium & brave desktop browsers & also the official android app.

I have attached two screenshots relating to both my problems & can confirm that uninstalling & reinstalling firefox did nothing. Many thanks in advanced for replying & helping me :)

I work in applications where I need several windows open at once. And I often start one, then need to spawn a new one. I can do that with 'duplicate tab", but then I'm always switching back and forth. I need multiple windows open at once. So what I need is an easy way to duplicate a tab as a different window, so I can have two or more open at once.

I use a master password for my Firefox account. My desktop Firefox account only required me to enter my master password once and I have never, in the year or more since, had to enter it again. However on my laptop, I am constantly nagged to enter the master password each and ever time I open Firefox. And if I don't enter it and press cancel, it will eventually nag me a few seconds to a a few minutes later.

I've searched support and none of the suggestions have resolved the issue. I don't use AVG or Eset Internet Security. I followed the steps in the guide anyway but did not resolve the issue.

Thank you for your consideration.

My laptop: Microsoft Surface 6 i7-8650U, 8Gb RAM Windows 10 Home 64-bit version 1903 Firefox version 73.0.1

What does it mean? Is this some kind of tracking?

Everything works on other device, but on this clean install of a Windows machine, I can't get to download any file from Google Drive. I've reinstalled Firefox, downgraded the version, deleted cookies multiple times, disabled all extensions, went into incognito, nothing works!

The page isn’t redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to doc-0g-70-docs.googleusercontent.com.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

From network tab, FF is constantly doing these two requests:

Having what seems to be a recurring issue throughout Firefox releases. When maximizing a window I get a large white bar blocking the entire header-menu area of the browser. Have attempted cycling the browser through fullscreen with F11 and Dev mode with F12. Have completely restarted the browser in and out of SafeMode with the same issue present. Additionally I can interact with the webpage however I cannot interact with any of the menus in the white bar in fact I actually select the icons on the desktop behind the bar. My computer is setup with one 1080p monitor and one 1440p monitor; this bug only appears on the 1440p screen. Going to restart and see if that solves the issue however I wanted to make a note of this error as it appears to be recurring throughout the past few years. Last detail is I am running Windows 10 and all drivers are up to date. Pictures show the browser in maximized SafeMode and after restoring view the bottom pop-up desktop menu.

Using Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1 Firefox 73.0.1 64-bit When I close several tabs, a message box appears telling me that tabs will be closed in 20 seconds, or to click to avoid that. If I dismiss the box by clicking on the window-frame "X", Firefox closes too many tabs. (The box disappears after a few seconds.) I wish not to see that box. I wish Firefox to do nothing I do not trigger myself. How do I eliminate that function entirely?

I do not know the correct terms to describe the part of Firefox I am having trouble with. These three links were originally saved on my desktop. I deleted them when I no longer needed them. When I attempt to remove them, nothing happens. If I try to open them, I receive an error message window saying, "The item you selected is unavailable. It might have been moved, renamed, or removed. Do you want to remove it from the list?". There are a "Delete" and "Cancel" buttons in the window. When I select Delete, nothing happens. I have tried to delete the bookmark from my bookmarks, but it is not there. Any suggestion would be appreciated
