Couple days ago Yahoo Mail stopped downloading attachments of any type. Only happens when using Mozilla. Yahoo mail works fine with edge and android. The following had no affect: (1) signing out and in to yahoo mail. (2) Clearing cache etc in Mozilla (3) rolling back recent windows updates. Occurs with all types of attachments, so not an app issue. Appreciate your help, please include only those suggestions which consider the "suddenly" part...

The browser takes extremely long time to start-up. Task manager shows that it's trying to pull some 200mbs of data at the rate of 0.5mb\s or less. RAM is fine. HDD is old, but recently defragmented and, outside of <this> particular issue - it's not a problem. System is dusty, but system is system. For some reason virtually any other program launches more or less just fine. A particularly heavy game can pull gigabytes of data in about the same time that Firefox is bottlenecked to kilobyte speed.

It's not a conflict of start-ups, I have only the driver necessities in there. it's not a windows start-up issue, the browser can take as much time even a minute after windows is loaded. It's not a (anti)virus. Because I don't use either. It's not some 15 year old Celeron trying to handle W10, FX8320 should be able to handle opening a web browser. It's not a ton of extensions, and it's not even Firefox accounting, it happened before I registered. From extensions it's only ublock origin and VPN.

My personal three guesses are:

-More than 3-5 tabs on average, but, last I checked, the tabs aren't loaded upon start-up. And power users have sessions of dozens of tabs. -100-200 bookmarks. Again, not sure how hard is it to read a text data, unless it also has to load some thumbnails or icons or whatever. -Software aging.(Latest stable firefox, updates are on, and it has been running far less than this 4 year old system)

Reinstalling the system isn't a solution. Nor is reinstalling Firefox. Nor is dumping bookmarks, because otherwise why bookmark them. I'd just like to know why is Firefox limited to kilobyte speed of initial page loading. It can't be a damaged HDD cluster, otherwise I'd feel it outside of start-up.

With my limited knowledge of PC - it's usually a random read issue. Because like every memory benchmarks(HDD and RAM) can show hysterical speeds when loading\copying some 50gigs of a single file, if it's a few hundreds of thousands of small files - it becomes random and tanks. But what I don't understand why does Firefox have THAT much clutter? Is it really the bookmarks?

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/permission-request-messages-firefox-extensions?as=u&utm_source=inproduct The long list of permissions here seem incredibly excessive, completely irrelevant to the task and therefore an invasion of privacy. Some examples: ''Extend developer tools to access your data in open tabs "Download files and read and modify the browser’s download history" "Open files downloaded to your computer" "Read the text of all open tabs" "Access recently closed tabs" "Access your location" "Access browsing history" "Monitor extension usage and manage themes" "Exchange messages with programs other than Firefox" "Read and modify privacy settings" "Control browser proxy settings" "Store unlimited amount of client-side data" Seriously? All I want the browser to do is search for an image, not hand over all my personal information to you. You can't find an image without checking where I am, what else I've been doing, modifying my privacy and browser proxy settings, storing unlimited data, reading everything on my open and recently closed tabs? Is this to be used for commercial purposes? What's going on here? I think it's time to find a new browser. Please explain.

Hi all. I've been having a problem with Firefox (version 100.0) where the entire "Forms and Autofill" section is missing from the Settings page (the Privacy... page). And of course since that's missing, the corresponding features don't work either. Specifically, I'm trying to get the browser to save my address and credit card info.

I've dug into this quite a bit with no luck. I've tried disabling all extensions. I believe it's supposed to work with native functionality and not require an extension.

I've looked at these articles:

https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1220110 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1315704 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1324732 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-doesnt-save-web-form-entries https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/automatically-fill-your-address-web-forms https://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox/Features/Form_Autofill

...which led me to verify that these settings are set correctly in about:config :

dom.forms.autocomplete.formautofill = true extensions.formautofill.available = on extensions.formautofill.creditCards.supported = on extensions.formautofill.creditCards.available = true extensions.formautofill.creditCards.enabled = true extensions.formautofill.creditCards.supportedCountries = US,CA,GB,FR,DE (I'm in the US) extensions.formautofill.addresses.supported = on extensions.formautofill.addresses.enabled = true extensions.formautofill.addresses.supportedCountries = US,CA extensions.formautofill.creditCards.hideui = false

The "about:policies#active" page says "The Enterprise Policies service is inactive", which I believe is the correct response.

The "Remember search and form history" setting is enabled.

On "about:support", the "Internationalization & Localization" items are all set to "en-US".

I don't know what else to look for. Very aggravating. Does anyone know how to make this work? It was working for me under Mint just a week ago, but I just switched to Manjaro in the last few days and I'd certainly like to avoid wiping my machine clean again.

Thanks for your help.

One (and only one) of the App icons, on Outlook.com, for OneDrive is corrupted, and will not open. It is unique problem that only occurs when using the Firefox Browser, and only when trying to open OneDrive by clicking on the OneDrive icon in the app launcher feature through Outlook.com. One Drive will open from that same app icon in other browsers and One Drive will open using the Firefox Browser when accessing it from every other option. It is only a problem, when on the Firefox Browser, and only when trying to access OneDrive through the app launcher icon for OneDrive, while in Outlook.com. I've tried "Refresh Firefox" and the issue temporarily goes away, and access is successful through the link I have described, but, only immediately after the refresh. Later, it will again no longer connect again...unless I again Refresh Firefox. The issue appears (to me) to be a broken address stream when the problem occurs, but, again, this only occurs under the conditions I have described. It has worked fine for many years and just within the last four days suddenly became a problem. Yes, I have other options to access OneDrive, but the app for OneDrive while on Outlook.com emails is the most convenient since I am often communicating with a recipient of a link to a file stored in a file on the online OneDrive. I've tried the Troubleshooting Mode, and nothing appeared to be highlighted, and I have tried clearing the cache numerous time. Please help.

Over the past few days FireFox v. 99.0.1 had been non-responsive on a tab.

Got to the point I had to close FF and tried to use cCleaner to clear cache/history etc.

However cCleaner could not proceed as it claimed FF was still open.

Using Windows Task Manager I found FireFox was "Suspended" (screenshot 1)

I then terminated the task - so cCleaner could proceed.

Then FF appeared to work OK. Until the next time....

It just happened a few minutes ago closing FF - using cCleaner - once again FF was "suspended" and had to be terminated in Task Manager.

On FF help it said Update to version 100 which I did BUT the update got stuck on the FF Update - for several minutes (definitely over 10 mins) so I had to terminate the FF Updater using Windows Task Manager (screenshots 2 & 3) again used Task Manager to terminate that.

FF appeared to open OK even showed the version 100 What's new tab.

BUT when I used FF help to check version I got Restart FF to update to version 100 (screen shot 4) Perhaps the last might temporary due to terminating the what appeared to be stuck Updater, but it was worth mentioning.

PC details: OS Name Microsoft Windows 10 Home Version 10.0.19044 Build 19044 System Model HP Pavilion 590-p0097c Desktop PC System Type x64-based PC Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-8400 CPU @ 2.80GHz, 2808 Mhz, 6 Core(s), 6 Logical Processor(s) Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 8.00 GB

Any help appreciated.

I have two Gmail Workspace accounts logged in to two different tabs in one FF browser window. Have used this set-up for years. However, ever since updating to FF 100.0.1, when I try to open an email thread in a new window (pops out the message into a separate window), there is a "cannot properly re-direct error" that appears.

Only way to resolve this appears to be clearing the cache for mail.google.com and signing in again to both accounts. However, this solution only appears to work for a day or two before the "redirect error in a new window" occurs again.

This error does not occur in Private Browsing mode, and Google Workspace support has confirmed it is not an issue with Gmail/ Workspace.

Any thoughts on how this can be fixed? I have disable all "enhanced tracking protection"

Firefox is unable to load module

I've been trying to setup a smartcard reading device, and I've gotten stuck twice on the same place.

When it comes to configuring the Security Device on Firefox, I can't access the .so file. Firefox merely shows the error "Alert: Unable to add module", but I've noticed that when I try to browse my files manually, trying to access the /usr directory returns an error (sometimes, I seem to not be able to get it consistently).

It also happens that the software I installed for the digital certificate tried to open an html with Firefox, which is located in /usr/share/, and Firefox doesn't seem to be able to load that either. It returns a "Can't open file".

Steps followed

  1. Open Firefox
  2. Settings → Privacy and Security → Security Devices → Load
  3. Insert path /usr/lib/libpkcs11-dnie.so and try to load (yes, I've checked that the file does actually exist)
  4. Receive Alert: Unable to add module error

Relevant information

   Ubuntu 22.04

I wanted to print out an order placed online but could only print part of it.

The order took up about 1.5 pages when displayed in Firefox, but I could only print the upper 2/3 of it. That’s all the Print Preview displayed. It was cut off at the bottom. There was no option to print the missing lower third or a second page.

I can scroll Firefox to display the lower part but Print Preview still shows only the upper part.

I can change FF’s scale to 80% in order to show the whole order on the screen, but Print Preview still only shows the upper part.

I can scale Print Preview to 70%, but then it’s difficult to read.

I don’t recall having this problem with earlier versions of Firefox.

How can I print my order on 2 pages so that I can read it?

Running Firefox 100.0 on Linux Mint 20.3 Mate 1.26 I've noticed that websites like my bank use a "sub window" that slides in from the right to display the running balances. Prior to version 100, this worked perfectly with dual scroll bars, one for the main window and one for the "sub" window. Now, with version 100, the "sub" window has no scroll bar. I can control the window by using the keyboard up/down arrows, but the scroll bar for the "sub" window is non existent. You cannot have access to my bank account, but you can duplicate the problem with Google. Simply search for say, a celebrity, click on one of the displayed images, and the window that displays on the right used to have it's own scroll bar, beside the bar that controlled the main window. Sub window scroll bar is now gone. It seems you folks violated one of the Cardinal Sins of Programming: IF IT AIN'T BROKE, DON'T FIX IT. Scroll bars worked great before, Not sure whose idea it was to "improve" them. Rolling a Firefox update backwards is a logistical nightmare. Is there a possibility of a fix coming out soon or are we to live with this as a "feature"??? Thanks for your time.

The rest of the IP's are not mine, and with a quick iplookup it directs to Sverdlovskaya oblast' in Russia. Now I dont think I used a russian vpn but there is a possibility I made an error. But what really strikes me here is the Firefox versions. At both the points 1 and 2, marked in blue. there is a change in version, in fact a downgrade from 100.0 to 96.0. How is this possible? I cant seem to find an explanation. And then it jumps back up to 100.0. I also another timestamp where it downgraded to 96.0, and then came back to 100.0 . I'm really worried about the possibility of a hacker on my computer. If someone can find an answer to this it would mean a lot!
