I first mentioned this in r/Firefox, and was asked to re-post here.

My FF just updated to 127.0.1 even though I have "Check for updates but let you choose to install them" and told it to wait. This was on a Windows 11 box. Everything seemed fine, but then one of my tabs crashed. I selected the reload tab option, at which point it informed me it could not load the tab because a background update had happened and I was now required to restart Firefox.

I'm not certain what version of FF I was on, I believe it was either 126 or 126.0.1.

Now, to be completely fair, I cannot with 100% certainty say that I clicked on the update later option. That said, as I _did not want to update then_, and I have put off the update before, it seems unlikely I would have made the mistake, but I wasn't recording everything I did so I can't play it back and prove it. My initial reaction was to associate it with the tab crashing somehow, as everything was working as expected right up until that moment.

Thanks

Hi. I have a question. Can i add a keyword to bookmark pages instantly. What i mean by instantly is when i bookmark a page can i add a keyword instantly without going to the bookmark saved location and then edit it and add it from there. I just want to press crtl + d ( bookmark shortcut ) and then when i do that i can add a keyword without the need of going to the saved location of the bookmark.

Just moved from win 7 to win11. Pity me. Used sync prior to using FF on 11. Sites I remained signed into with 7 now have to be signed in every time with win11. Even if Firefox isn't closed between visits. ex: Youtube, forum sites, etc. I don't know if this is FF or win11 doing it. I didn't change any settings in FF on 11. Any help or direction appreciated.

A week or so ago (About the 18th July) I found that I could no longer log into eBay with Firefox.

When I try to log in it comes up with a big read banner with the words "We ran into a problem. Please try again later." inside it.

Using any other browser works.

I am just assuming an update, either Firefox or Windows has broken something.

I disabled my Firewall to see if that had any effect... no, it didn't.

I am not running any ad blockers.

I have also found others who have suffered the same issue on another forum.

Any idea's?

Cheers, Glenn

There are two websites that I have been connecting to for years using Firefox in Windows 11. Recently, Firefox has not been able to connect. With one (https://www.medicare.uhc.com/aarp), I can see it trying to connect but it just never happens. Another (auth2.care360.com) gives the message "An error occurred during a connection to auth2.care360.com. PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR". Firefox is my primary browser. When I use Edge there is no issue connecting to either of these sites. I have not installed any new security software since the issues started and have always taken standard software updates.

On Windows 11, for the last two days, whenever I try to open Netflix, it says "WidevineCDM plugin has crashed". I've also tried Amazon Prime Video and Apple TVs+. It always crashes and displays the crash thing and asks me to submit report.

I also use firefox on a Linux distribution that is dualbooted on the same machine. No crashes there. I recently updated my graphic card's vBIOS and firmware(RTX 4080) using the utility provided by the manufacturer of the card. But even after updating this and rebooting, I was able to watch a couple of episodes of a show without any problems. However, the second time I tried to open Netflix after the {graphics card updates + reboot} + {1 or 2 extra reboots} the plugin has been crashing on me constantly.

I think it might be a graphics card thing or a Windows thing. The problem is, there seems to be very little information on troubleshooting anything related to Widevine. I found no information on how to delete it and re-install it. I have tried to enable Integrated graphics only in BIOS and plugged the monitor into one of the motherboard's display output(for integrated graphics). Same result.

I have submitted crash reports: https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/3d9cc9fa-7f6b-465a-9895-e2b6b0240724 https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/73835b7c-7393-47ee-94b8-d24410240724

I am sure you have had endless posts regarding this issue, but for me, it is still ongoing. Randomly and without warning, I can have pages full of funky fonts that is unreadable. Usually, closing the browser and reopening it does the trick, but when I have several important tabs opened within the session, that can be a bit of a pain in the ass especially when I reopen, all is lost. Is there something on my end I can do to keep this from occurring. In other browsers, this does not happen. Please help. Thanks. :D

I am repeatedly kicked out by YouTube, because I seem to have one or more ad blockers active. My problem is that I even don't know where to find them, so that I can deactivate them. I have tried earlier to find a solution, but to no avail. Apparently there are more people having this problem.

I am now forced to watch YouTube on Edge, which feels like treason, because I am a Firefox user for many years.

In case you would have a solution, please don't bombard me with geek talk. I am an IT layman.

Since "Flash Player" has been discontinued by Adobe since 2020 - and by force since 2021 - what is the solution? Yesterday, it told me I had 20 "tabs" open in Task Manager - but I clearly had less than 10.

The problem here is... my fan gets loud because of this - and that is very frustrating at night. Watching a video, and then hearing a storm brewing, right in your ear.

I've attempted Fan Control software, but it's way too complicated for my capabilities. It seems to do barely anything, unless you have a specific set of hardware - and a certain amount of know-how.

Ps. I am referring to the thread, created 6 years ago, here on the forum. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1223023

I run Firefox on two windows machines, with identical settings and extensions - I regularly sync across them, and have all my passwords saved to a local file, just in case. Recently, one machine (the only one with Win11) has begun disconnecting me from Mozilla every time I close Firefox, and wiping the saved passwords. I have to sign in to Mozilla and import all the passwords every time i reopen Firefox. I have tried all the refresh, reinstall options and nothing seems to fix it. Any ideas what's going on and how to fix?

I have blocked popups but that's not as much help as you'd hope. I cannot find anythng like AdBlock+ or U Block. Are these no longer available? No longer recommended? I can tell you that they are sure still needed. Thanks.

Cannot print Firefox web pages (using Microsoft Print to PDF) or hard copy (with Brother printer) at my account on this computer. Goggle Chrome and MS Edge print web pages normally. Other accounts on this computer can print Firefox and other browser web pages normally. 'Have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox at my account but no fix. Problem started about 2 months ago at my account on this computer (running Win11 Pro). 'Have consulted Microsoft "Help" but their tech/"bot" said it is a 3rd party (ie. Mozilla/Firefox) issue and not solvable by Mictosoft.

Using MS Print to PDF, only a blank PDF page is printed. The Brother printer never even starts when selecting it as the printer.

Hi,

I have used Firefox for a long time. I have many bookmarks, passwords etc on Firefox on my original PC.

Sadly the hard drive on my original PC has failed. I borrowed a laptop temporarily and signed into Firefox on that. My bookmarks did not transfer across and instead I had someone elses bookmarks but I wasn't too concerned as I was only borrowing the laptop.

I now have a new PC. I have restored my files from a backup external drive and I have signed into Firefox on this PC. However, all of my tabs and bookmarks have not come across. I have pressed sync but it has brought the bookmarks over from the laptop and not the bookmarks from my original PC.

How can I sync to the original PC that has all my bookmarks etc please? Or have I lost it all forever?

Thank you.
