Hi, I just installed FireFox on my Early 2011 MacBook Pro, and every time a page loads up, the screen flashes and flickers with long horizontal bars. It's not just the browser bar, it's the entire screen, and it's making FireFox unusable on my laptop. I tried changing the hardware acceleration, which reduced the amount of flashing but did not stop it from happening. I also tried running FireFox in safe-mode but I am still having the same issue. Any ideas on how I can fix this?

No Saving or Restoring of Windows and Tabs, Even With All Add-ons Disabled, Unless I Restart in Safe Mode

I have posed this question under "Fix slowness, crashing, error messages and other problems," and under "Other," and have not gotten a single response. So I am trying it again here.

This is a major glitch, and I am surprised that no one else is dealing with it too!

Is there anyone who works for Mozilla who monitors these forums who can help?
=========

After upgrading to FF 84, my previous sessions are no longer saved and restored unless I restart in Safe Mode.

- I have Restore previous session checked in Preferences.

- I have opened new windows and tabs and one by one disabled and restored every add-on that I have had enabled and quit and restarted each time, until every single add-on has been disabled, and still the previous sessions are not saved and restored.

- I have looked in the sessionstore-backups folder with each restart, and there is never any file for the previous sessions in it.

- I have cleared all my cache before quitting and restarting.

- Again, even when there are absolutely no add-ons enabled, the previous session is not saved and not restored.

- Again, only when I restart in Safe Mode is the previous session saved and restored.

What is the solution?

Hello, I always download mp3 files inside webs using "Save as" and ".mp3" method. Sometimes I had to explicitly save filename with ".mp3" extension to force audio download. However trying to download an audio no matter what format I write in file always download only webpage as .html never as .mp3. Looking at sourcecode (image attached) I found a detail containing "chrome" in webpage. Later, I tried downloading with Chromium at it worked properly. Does anyone know how to download this from Firefox?

Thanks in advance for your help. P.D. I am using Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit) for Ubuntu canonical - 1.0.

After using CCleaner, on opening FireFox I discovered an unwanted, 'other bookmarks' tab sitting on my toolbar. It won't move (click & drag), and I want rid of it. I like having the double right arrow at the edge of the toolbar like it use to be. When I did a full browser 'refresh', it disappeared!

However, on using CCleaner again, the darn thing reappeared.

How to I tell FireFox that I would like to be in charge of how it displayed, rather than some errant code that someone else thinks i want?

Firefox is crashing almost immediately after loading a page. Sometimes it crashes while loading the page, sometimes I can scroll down or click a link, and then it crashes. Biggest issues are on Reddit. I'm able to browse the Firefox support pages with minimal issues (although it has crashed once or twice).

Crash happens in Safe Mode. (I'm in safe mode right now and it just crashed) I did a FULL clean install about a week ago. (actually did it twice just to be sure)

Not sure what info you need in order to help, but here is some of the crash report from the latest one today.

I have had to replace several computers lately, when I restarted loading software onto them, I encountered a problem. I receive e mails with files attached which are Corel Draw files. When I download them they come out as zip files and create a lot of files on the drive which make no sense and have stuff in the files that don't do anything. I reverted over to a different browser that being Microsoft Edge which I don't like but it downloads the file perfectly with no problems.......I have been a fan of Firefox for many years but recently there have been so many changes and up dates that things have been starting to change way to much.... I did go to the list of things to check and did not find anything relating to this problem.

Hi, It seem that the Firefox.exe was hacked on my PC.

I checked for the malwares the PC with several antivirus software. I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it without saving data from the previous versions, with no success. I tried all methods offered by the Firefox Help, but does not work. Please, help me to fix the problem. I am attaching screenshots to illustrate the problem.

Thank you, Katalin

This question is on behalf of my mother, who has been using firefox for years and has an extensive 'library' of bookmarks and tags and history that she relies on and doesn't want to lose. She either never has had, or has forgotten, a login password, and when prompted to request a new one, it appears that all her existing history would be wiped. How can she ensure that all the painstaking work to create bookmarks and folders and tagged history is not lost? How can she save this data so as to be sure to be able to access it? Thanks in advance for any tips!

I have a new W/10 PC. I downloaded and installed the latest version of FF 84.0.2 (64-bit) on the new PC.

Once I got it installed on the new PC, I went to the old PC and copied from users/myname/appdata/roaming/Mozilla (which I think is 32-bit) and used that file to replace the MOZILLA in the similar location on the new PC.

However, I started getting error messages about the profiles on the new system were inconsistent with the old system. So consequently, on my NEW PC, I was not able to transfer the bookmarks, profile, etc from the old to the new.

How can I successfully transfer my profiles and other FF info from the old (32-bit) to the new (64-bit)?

I've had "HTTPS-only" turned on since it became available in a recent Firefox update, but its behavior seems very odd. I frequently get the error window that says HTTPS isn't available and gives me the option to cancel or proceed to a non-secure site. But most of the time, the page that opens when I click to proceed is indeed an https page.

Why is the Firefox module seeing these pages as non-https and not just opening them as they are?

Good morning,

Hope this finds you all well and safe with 2021 well here. I got wondering about this hence me posting this to see about why the Firefox synced tabs information which I have my other laptops connected to my account doesn't have the updated sites shown or anything relevant to not having any tabs open since I don't have Firefox open on one of my other laptops but see an open webpage under Sync for it. Hope this makes sense for you to help out so I can see how to get around this if anything. Thank you. Hope to hear from one of you. Have a good day and stay safe.
