Tried uninstall, update, troubleshoot mode, restart, clear cache, malware detect, task mgr, etc. Windows 10 software, drivers, firewall, hardware, memory, etc are ok.

Firefox hangs, no rhyme or reason, random pages, every hour or so.

Am I the only one having issue?

After I open the Firefox browser, a window opens:

We couldn't create the data directory - Microsoft Edge can't read and write to its data directory: C:\ProgramData\McAfee\WebAdvisor\UIHost.exe_pr]S-1-5-21-1684796555-4169006821-2310766321-1005\wa1656781557\EBWebView

Tried to re-intall Edge, does not work, cleared all cookies, etc. Still get this message once I open the Firefox Browser.

Any suggestions how to clear this problem?

Hello,

The issue is as follows: unless I use 'alerts.useSystemBackend = true' (which I don't want to do), I'm not getting any push notifications.

Using this test site: https://www.bennish.net/web-notifications.html - the logs goes as follows: Notification #1 queued for display Notification #1 closed

What I've tried: troubleshooting mode, reinstalling firefox, using a completely fresh&clean installation, and even reinstalling windows. Even after reinstalling windows and immediately installing firefox, the problem persists. However, it doesn't happen on another machine I've tested on, everything works perfectly there.

What could possibly be the problem? Please help!

Firefox has assigned my .cpp files as type "Git", but .cpp files should be type "Visual Studio 2019". How do I change the type "Git" to "Visual Studio 2019" for .cpp files, so when I want to save or open a .cpp file the Firefox Applications matrix assigns .cpp files to Visual Studio 2019?

I have read all of the other threads about why Gmail will not work in Firefox and I have tried the solutions (although I could not find where to adjust SSL settings in firefox and the link does not take me to the original thread)

I just reinstalled my windows OS and firefox because of other issues. But this means both are in the default state. When I try to load Gmail in firefox it just clocks or does nothing. When I do the same in Microsoft's browser it loads up fine. I have security set to "Standard" I removed HTTPS only mode just in case that was this issue. I have the latest Windows 10 OS and the latest to date Firefox (102.0)

All other sites seem to load fine.

Firefox is showing me the same blocked (and cancelled) download on each startup. Firefox tries to download same file every time I open it. I have seen this issue in several threads. I want to share my experience in resolving it:

In your Firefox profile folder (%appdata%\Mozilla\Firefox) look for the file download*.json (the asterix represents some characters I did not record). If it contains the strange link for that file he is trying to download all over again at each startup, delete the text ad save the now empty file. At the following startup, the issue should be resolved and the download*.json should disappear from your profile folder.

I hope this helps.

Additional info: This happened to be after trying to download a file from bit-files.com. < -- DO NOT OPEN ONLY FOR WARNING This issue was reported also for depositfiles.com by others. < -- DO NOT OPEN ONLY FOR WARNING Other threads on the same issue: Firefox tries to download same file every time I open it - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/922373 firefox 28 automatically tries downloading a file when it starts - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/992386 Firefox is showing me same blocked (and cancelled) download on each startup - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1333402

Hi,

so for 2 versions now (since 101.0.1, while 101.0 was still ok) everytime when I'm in the Library/Bookmark Manager and expand any folder on the left, in the main window with the bookmarks, it jumps to the very top.

That is especionally annoying when you've selected some bookmarks to sort into folders which you first need to expand.

Why was that change? That behaviour wasn't there in earlier versions; and also makes no sense.

There are two websites (at least) in which I've been receiving the same error message (see attached). Because these were sites I need for work, I first worked with IT Services and they first suggested clearing the cache. That did seem to work for about a week and a half. However, 2 days ago, it started happening again and now clearing the cache does not seem to work. I know it's a firefox issue because the pages load fine on Chrome.
