Google Maps not able to Access Location

My google maps is unable to access my location even though I have allowed location access from Firefox preferences/settings. The blue target button (Current Location) on Google maps is greyed out, and when I hover over it it says that access is not allowed. Even though when I'm in google maps, the Address bar shows that my location access is allowed, as well as in the Firefox settings. I have refreshed the window multiple times, restarted Firefox, cleared all cookies, and restarted my computer. I've also toggled the enhanced tracking protection in the address bar to off, restarted the browser, still not working. Everything in the settings tells me that access is allowed, yet google maps still tells me that it is denied. Has anyone had this problem, or know of a workaround or how to fix this? Thanks! (Working on Firefox 75. with a MAC)

Some websites do not allow for passwords to be saved for security reasons. If you have followed the steps above, but are still not prompted to save a password when logging in to a certain website, that site may have disabled password saving.

Hi all,

Recently GMail has stopped working properly. When entering a search query + hitting enter, nothing happens. Even the autocomplete does not kick in. The Online Contacts (lower left) is also showing jumbled text, and the far right hand Side Panel is also not showing properly (although the buttons are there when I mouse hover over them). Firefox is completely up-to-date, Win 10 setup.

I haven't had a firefox crash in a long time, and this one seemed particularly odd because it started out with individual tabs crashing, then the browser, then the same happening again as the browser restored itself. I had since updated Firefox to the version that came out the same day and rebooted and it hasn't yet happened again, but I would like some help diagnosing if this is a deeper issue or just a fluke, as another application (the OSRS game client) seemed to close itself, albeit with no message, alongside Firefox while everything else was stable.

Event viewer showed four application errors listing:

ntdll.exe
nvapi.dll
nvtmmon.exe

As well as ntdll.exe alongside firefox.exe

I am not sure what this means, if those came from outside or inside firefox's operation.

Here are my crash reports related to the incident:

bp-f214e660-8d5d-4d28-9d65-bc4b30180906
bp-89089d16-b8af-4394-9ad3-58aca0180906
bp-9a0cca78-56a0-4173-b7bd-7734a0180906

Thank you for any help.

I have one bookmark that will not work. If I click the bookmark nothing happens. no searching back and forth dots.The current pages stay open and active.

http://www.canadiantire.ca/

It works fine in chrome, opera, IE. If I google search and then click the google link it works.

It does work if I click the link in this question.

It does not work if I cut and paste or type it into the address bar.

It does not work if I make a new bookmark while on the page and then try using the new bookmark.

The about:config trick doesn't work on Drudge. Chrome has an add-on that blocks autorefresh, but it doesn't work on Drudge, either. Apparently Drudge is hell-bent on autorefreshing his page every thirty seconds whether you like it or not. Has anyone figured out how to make Drudge stop autorefreshing? I used to use NoScript, but since Quantum, NoScript has been transformed into a monstrosity I can't make head or tail of.

hello, just updated to version 62 (x64) and everything become very very slow. It needs at least 18 seconds to open and the same time to open just a new tab

before the update everything was good enough, now I uninstalled it completely with Revo, cleaned the registry with Wise, cleaned the PC with CCleaner, optimize the SSD and installed the previous (working) version (61): SAME SITUATION, IT'S UNBELIEVABLE SLOW.

After the new installation, without any plugin installed: very slow. With the plugins installed: the same

What is FUNNY is that's not happening on a cheaper system! What is FUNNY is that it's not happenyng on just ONE system!

Sys 1: Laptop with Intel i5, 8Gb RAM and SSD Samsung Sys 2: Desktop with Intel i5, 16Gb RAM DDR4 3600MHz, 256Gb SSD Samsung NVMe and Geforge 1080 8Gb

You'll understand that with any of those system in your hands, waiting more than 2 seconds to see the browser open IS ABSOLUTELY UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!

The last update corrupt something, otherwise the previous working version didn't works so badly

Now I'll restore a ghost image, fortunately I have it at least two for each month, in the while I'll test other faster browsers

Note: At the same time the internet is fully working with that same wifi on my mobile phone.

What guarantees of accountability and transparency exist in Mozilla's phishing and malware protections to prevent false positives?

A site of mine has been blocked "because it may trick you into doing something dangerous" etc. The phrasing suggests that you aren't even sure if there is a real problem, but you're blocking it just in case. Nowhere is the cause specified. There are no details of what behaviour or code on the site caused it to be listed, or who listed it, or why. Just a big message saying that this is a Deceptive Site. There's no one I can talk to about this, no way to find out any information whatsoever - there's not even any notification that the site has been blocked. All of which makes it just about impossible to actually FIX whatever is causing this issue (assuming that there is one, and I haven't just been reported randomly by some troll).

So, to sum up: there's no useful information, no transparency and no accountability anywhere in this process. Just Google throwing their weight around and you letting them.

I'm not saying that there is no problem - there may be a legitimate issue that needs addressing. What I'm saying is that the way the Mozilla Foundation has dealt with the problem makes it more or less impossible to actually do that addressing. Who exactly does that help? How does this make anyone's internet experience better?

After a last update of Firefox, Kasperksy told me, that firefox websites are not protected by this security software and they force me to use google chrome for to be protected. But I want to use firefox because of its tracking protection and privacy sites. Is there any reason to bar Mozilla from protecting. In former times there was an add-on, which doesn't exist any longer.

Hi - please help! I'm running Windows 10 on a Dell Laptop. Firefox won't shut down at all and every morning it asks if I want to restore the previous session. This is causing all sorts of issues. I've followed all the advice in the troubleshooting guide (ie updating windows, stopping fast start up, and everything else in the guide - as well as deleting and reinstalling Firefox) but nothing has worked. It's driving me nuts! Any help would be appreciated.

I am currently running Firefox Portable version 60 with lots of extensions and customized toolbars and I would like to migrate to a 64 bit installed version without losing my bookmarks, history, extensions, configurations, etc. Can I simply install Firefox 60 and copy my Firefox Portable profile folder or is there another process? Is it even possible to migrate from a portable version without losing anything?

Thank you.
