I'm a longtime Chrome user trying to move away from that browser. I recently downloaded Firefox and it worked fine for a few days, but now I'm having problems.

I keep Gmail and Google Classroom open in tabs throughout the day (I'm a teacher). They worked fine in Firefox for a few days, but now both sites constantly load or time out.

The problem seems to go away anytime I restart Firefox, but I can't constantly be restarting Firefox all day long. Why do the sites work for a few minutes and then stop working a few minutes after restarting?

I had AdBlocker Ultimate enabled before, but my friend uses uBlock so I tried changing. No help.

I had a theme installed from the recommended list. I thought that might be a problem, so I went back to the default Firefox theme. No help.

What I'm running: Firefox 89.0.1 MacOS Catalina

FF auto-updated to 89.0.1, now a site won't work, would like to RESTORE deleted/cleared COOKIES (?!?!) for that site to see if it will help cuz deleted the cookie for it made things worse! Doesn't work under Private FF session either!!

Specifics: I am the Webmaster of (we use WIX to create/manage it) 12cdrc.org and it is working fine using Edge, Chrome, Brave, but no longer works correctly (since 89.0.1, I think happened late last night early this morning on my system) update. Most of the page loads, but the Calendar and display tweets sub-windows will not load! It will be obvious to all where they should be displaying but are not!

So, I tried removing 12cdrc.org cookies. Things got worse! Now the Login won't work either, where I was logged in as my user for the site prior to that.

I tried a Private window/session, and the Login function does work, the Calendar does show, but the tweets sub-section/window still does not display/function.

Background: This is not the first website to malfunction using Firefox... Previous version updates broke the rescuemichigan.com website (none of the pull-down menu functions work, but work fine on/with Brave, Chrome, Edge)! Also mewe.com acts up using FF at times, but a clear of the mewe.com related cookies and relogin at mewe via FF clears up the issues of things not wanting to display correctly or fully on mewe using FF - which is why I thought clearing 12cdrc.org cookies would help in this case (but did not, again, made the malfunctioning worse)!

This makes little sense. I even tried doing D/L of full 89.0.1 install, didn't help.

I'd like to try and RESTORE COOKIES (last thing I want to do is clear all data/cookies for FF) for 12cdrc.org from manual offload of all my userid appdata folder/sub-folders to an external drive (or perhaps appdata backup to Norton cloud backup done a few weeks ago)! But I do not know where to look. Was about to go to my external drive and do complete file search of "12cdrc*.*" to see what would return when I thought I could search Mozilla/FF Help on "Restore Cookies" but only very old question for very old version of FF showed up and it said "IF STILL NEED HELP ASK NEW QUESTION" so here I am doing so!!!

Again, all sites (12CDRC.org, MeWe.com, and RescueMichigan.com) ALL WORK 100% error/issues free using Brave, Chrome, Edge, so this is FIREFOX SPECIFIC and all these issues have started under/after recent FF updates and/or gotten worse, not fixed/better, under updates/upgrades!!!!

Appreciate any Help... 1) like I said, where the Cookies are hidden that I might then recover them from previous save 2) other suggestions?!?!?!

Hello, Genius Folks.

As I am using an HP Chromebook 11 G3 with my work and needed to install firefox to use one of our tools, however, I cannot find the right solution to download and install it. I google all the possible ways but there is missing in the steps and I cannot find it in my Chromebook,

There is a step I need to go to Settings >> Advance >> Developers >> Turn on Linux. But my laptop's settings are not showing me any "Developers" option.

Would there be anyone who can help me in this scenario? Or someone who experienced this?

Thanks in advance! Honey,

Hi,

The electric cut out while my Firefox browser was open. Now I get a crash every time I try to open Firefox. I can't send a crash report and windows will not fix the problem. How do I fix this? I need Firefox to work as it has all my passwords and bookmarks saved. Why can't I simply move over to the developer edition? I did try but the morons at Morzilla didn't add any options for moving bookmarks and passwords from Firefox to the developer edition. Thanks a lot Morzilla, you really fucked up my day.

Starting with Firefox Browser v89.0.1 (64-bit), when I maximize the window on my laptop (primary screen) there is a white bar covering the navigation bar.

I noticed a similar issue in a question posted back in 2015.

Pressing Alt+Space and selecting Restore gives me access to move the window again.

If I click on the white bar, it actually clicks the window behind Firefox and brings it to the front.

Pressing F11 enters Full Screen mode, and the Bar still shows, but pressing F11 again returns to Maximized with the white bar gone.

Firefox 90b8 (64 bit). Note: I had previously been using 32-bit and it would crash once or more per day WITH crash files, many of which were (I think) submitted to you. My PC may be a factor: It's a "new old stock" (vintage 2016 or so) Pipo X9S. This model has 4 GB RAM and a 64 GB EMMC "disk." All disk operations are pathetically slow and I suspect this a factor in the poor performance.

I'd been hoping to see if the 64-bit build works better or could provide crash files. Clearly there's still something broken, but why no crash message/file?

The PC itself has been checked as well as I can. Latest win10 with all updates. Chkdsk /F finds no errors. I even downloaded and ran MEMTEST86 -- no problems there.

Firefox's "Use" is typically streaming music (SoundCloud) but many crashes happen when also doing normal web browsing in a 2nd tab.

Can someone help me to set up crash messages and reporting? Thank you.
