Firefox browser does not function when logged into AD domain. It works fine if using local account. This was not an issue until recently (perhaps a month). FW settings are open and websites are functional on other browsers, but after an Windows Security Update Firefox will not load any pages. It will not even open Settings tab. No bookmarks work.

I have uninstalled and tried to reinstall, and the windows update or the package install crash before install initiates. Logged into laptop local and was able to install, but when using domain account the problem reoccurs. Note, browser was functional until windows patch and indicators are of some .NET framework corruption.

I have tried clearing the cache and cookies, checked that javascript was enabled, and making sure cookies were allowed for the site. Nothing has helped.

I use a MacBook Pro running OS Monterey and I've gotten the dreaded "Firefox is already open" message. Firefox isn't my primary browser but I do have tabs and bookmarks saved there. This has happened before, and last time I ended up following advice to delete my profile which wiped out my entire account (it was the only profile there, and I should have looked for an alternate solution because that clearly wasn't it).

I was very interested in switching from Chrome to Firefox permanently, but I'll be honest, I'm pretty frustrated that this keeps happening and putting my tabs/bookmarks/history/etc in jeopardy. If someone could provide a straightforward explanation as to how to fix this I would greatly appreciate it.

Btw, I already tried viewing FireFox in the activity monitor as I saw another site suggest and it wouldn't let me quit it (I saw it greyed out).

I am, for the last two to three weeks sufferering limited access to my Barclays online banking if I use Firefox. My bank eventually told me to use an alternate, more popular browser to access it, which I was loathe to do but it worked first time! This is not the first time Firefox has had these issues either. What are you doing about it?

When I go into the Settings tab, I see a message at the top of the page that says "Your browser is managed by your organization". This is a private laptop so there should not be any organization managing my browser.

I have searched for help articles to try and solve this problem myself. They all recommend editing a key in the Windows registry, specifically HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Mozilla\Firefox . However, this registry folder does not exist in my laptop. Who is managing my browser? How can I stop them?

I'm running 64 bit Win 11 Pro Version 21H2 OS Build 22000.1219 and Firefox 107.0, and the first time I click to open Firefox, I receive message "Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item". If I clear the error box and click again, Firefox comes up normally. This happens every time I bring up Firefox. It's not a show-stopper, but very annoying.

Thanks for your help Mike Harmon [email removed from public]

I have been using Firefox for my Yahoo email for several years. Yesterday afternoon, it stopped working correctly. Only the most recent 10 or so emails are shown in each folder and the rest are greyed out. It no longer allows me to select mail settings and I cannot send emails. My email was still fully functional using Chrome, so I'm not sure the problem involves any changes in the Yahoo site. Has anyone else experienced this, and if so, is there a fix?

I am so fed up losing my pinned tabs.

I want a Firefox facility where I can have permanently pinned(locked tabs) and normal pinned tabs.

The permanent ones must not be able to be removed without myself physically clicking and removing them individually and are persistent when opening new browser instances, cannot be cleaned/removed by other cleaner programs are not saved in History.

Permanently pinned tabs should show a mark on the tab like a red padlock.

I use One Tab, but that has it's down side in that it clears my Tabs from the browser in to one single tab and then it is difficult to manage them, there are others and they all have their failings.

Please provide this locked tab facility.

Recently, I received a solicitation from MOZILLA to contribute with a donation. I willingly did so, since I use FIREFOX & THUNDERBIRD almost exclusively on 3 PCs daily.

 At the end of the donation screens, there is an option to contact MOZILLA either by Twitter, e-mail, or other options.  Since I do not subscribe to any of these modern social media outlets, I clicked on the E-mail option, expecting that I would get a refreshed screen so I could enter comments, etc.

Instead, when the screen refreshed, this is what I got: https://give.thunderbird.net , which ultimately led to nowhere.

 You accepted my donation gleefully, yet you continue to cloak your organization in unavailability to your subscribers.  This is not a vary fair & equitable situation.

Thank you. robert herold e-mail addresses: 17mkombi@gmail.com

Hi! under accounts.firefox.com/settings the language displayed is Norwegian Nynorsk even though i have set Norwegian Bokmål as my prefered language in the Firefox browser settings. I couldn't find a separate language setting on the accounts.firefox.com/settings page so im guessing this a bug/oversight/mixup when the browser attempts to look up the preferred language set in the browser?

I've attached 2 pictures showing my Firefox prefered language setting and my accounts.firefox.com/settings page.

Norwegian has two official written standards Bokmål and Nynorsk.

Ever since yesterday, scroll click (I use it to scroll through websites) has stopped working in Firefox. Works in in programs, other browsers, etc., just not Firefox.

Whats weird is it still registers a click when I use it, so I can lick on links with it if I want, but the function of scrolling, either by clicking once and using my mouse to go up and down, or by clicking an holding, no longer works.

I've tried disabling add-ons, incognito mode, nothing seems to work.
