Firefox completely resets when quit (Preferences, web information, bookmarks, history, etc.)

I use firefox on Mac OS 10.14.6. Every time I quit firefox (Stopping the program, not simply closing all windows) everything is reset to defaults. For all intents and purposes, it's as though I deleted and re-installed firefox every time I quit out of it. Bookmarks are removed, and any default bookmarks I removed are re-instated. It also opens up the set-up and privacy web pages that it does for the first time when you open it. None of the preference files are locked, it's set to remember history and I'm not permanently in private browsing, it's not even supposed to delete cookies. It's been like this since the moment I installed it; refreshing firefox changes nothing, uninstalling and reinstalling it also changes nothing. The only thing that stays the same is that my computer keeps firefox as my default browser.

hi! sometimes when trying to visit a site by clicking a google search result link, firefox stops it and shows:

Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to (website).com. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details...

So my question is, would attackers be able to steal such information if i never enter any? ie, if i only visit the site to read about things...

thanks for your reply!

Preview takes FOREVER to Load and Print - WHY?

Ever since you last changed Preview, it takes FOREVER for the darn page to load (be seen in Preview) and then FOREVER more to print. Half the time my doc doesn't even show up the first time Preview loads and I have to repeat it. The only work-around I've found is to open my doc in Safari and then print - which is insane. What's wrong with Firefox??

I started using Firefox on a Windows 10 laptop. I checked Task Manager as the computer is slow. It shows 6 instances of Firefox, all 6 using memory, with one of them showing CPU usage.

Is this "normal"? Is this how Firefox works? Thanks.

Yesterday I got a new Mac, running macOS Big Sur (11.1). Previously I was using Mojave (10.14.6). Now on Firefox a lot of pages fail to load -- they show a blank page. Among them:

https://web.whatsapp.com/ https://open.spotify.com/ https://www.nytimes.com/puzzles/spelling-bee Citibank (after the login)

Some of these pages do open in a Private window. However, I already cleared all my cookies and cache contents, and I still cannot load thes pages in a normal window.

Can you suggest what I need to do? Thanks!

ADD: When trying to login at https://profile.theguardian.com/signin, at first I got an error message saying to "make sure that Javascript is enabled". But now it just goes through, except that the site doesn't know that I logged in. And again, in a private window I am able to log in.

It looks like I should just do all my work in a private window now, which seems strange

For years, I've clicked on PDFs online and they've opened in a browser window. Then, if I wanted a copy, I downloaded it. Suddenly, this doesn't happen. It doesn't open, it just goes straight to download. I've changed no settings. Other browsers open the PDFs in question. What happened and how do I fix it. I'm running Firefox 78.0.2 (64-bit) on a 2017 iMac running 10.14.6. Thanks.

I went to "Show All Bookmarks" and searched for a bookmark. I want to know what folder I put the bookmark in. I can't figure out how to do so.

Someone answered this question before:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1274811

"You can open this bookmark in a tab, possible in "Work Offline mode". If you click the highlighted star on the location bar then you can check via the Folder line where in the folder tree this bookmark is located (second down arrow and use the scroll bar)."

How do I get into "Work Offline mode"? Also, why is this so difficult?

How can I choose in which Firefox profile to open external links?

I use 3 profiles (work, private and media) side by side. When I open external links I have no control over which profile will open the link. The link is opened right away (so no profile manager interference) in a random profile. I do want it to open right away, but ideally would like to easily set a priority order for profiles to open the external links without having to restart the profiles.

I'm finding that Twitter is not loading in my desktop Firefox browser (89.0.1), and I'm getting the error "failedScript=polyfills". I do use an ad blocker, but it's turned off for Twitter, so I'm not sure how that could be the issue. I'm not having the same issue in Safari. Thanks for any help!

Hi @ all,

our website https://ana-dismissed.de/ is not loading in Firefox, or to be more precise it is loading often but on occasionally not reloading when refreshed. This only happens in Firefox, Safari and other Chrome-based Browsers don't show this, perfectly working there (as far as I could check).

I already checked Firefox developer tools, like console or resource loadings etc. There is no issue I can find. I'm completely lost, no hint at all, why this happens in Firefox only.

Please find a short video here: https://imgur.com/a/31XyiMi

I'm thankful for every hint into the right direction.

Best regards!

I want to transfer the profile from an old PC running Windows 7 to a new PC running Windows 10. I've copied the old profile to a USB stick. After much searching I've found the profile created by the new installation, but it seems to appear in two folders: AppData/Roaming/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles, and AppData/Local/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles. Should I simply substitute the old profile for both instances of the new profile? NB This message is posted from a different platform (Mac) Thanks

Need help configuring Firefox exceptions for Cookies and Other site Data so sites like the NY Times can remember me so I don't have to log-in to them multiple times per day.

I've even deleted Firefox and started over, but that did not resolve the issue.

I need an expert in this to help me as I'm just not getting it...though I have tried many different configurations of FireFox's settings.

Thanks

Tim

When I'm using FF on my Mac, Catalina OS, and click on telephone numbers in websites, they always open up Skype, which I don't want them to do.

Instead, I want them to take me to Facetime and dial the number there.

Is there some configuration in my Preferences or an add-on that is causing phone numbers to open Skype instead of Facetime?

What can I do to get it open Facetime and dial there instead of Skype?

Why does the Firefox print button launch the save window? When I open an attachment from an email to print, the print button automatically wants to save the document as a PDF. If you try to open the PDF after being saved, it will launch the printer function on my MacBook Pro.

I have tried the procedures in the "Fix Printer Problem" article, which does not resolve the problem. If I refresh Firefox, the print button will work for a few days and then reverts to saving files.

I have removed and redownloaded Firefox multiple times, and I get the same results. I have used Firefox for quite a while and never had this problem. This issue is something that has started about two months ago.
