Hi,

Tried to find the solution but the problem boggles me.

I'm using the latest version of Firefox on Windows 10 (2004). Using one Windows session (let's call it WS1), my profiles (even new ones) are extremely slow, as if I had a really bad Internet connection (but responds well to typing or opening new tabs or operating in general, just slow navigation). I have a backup browser, Opera, that works just fine. On another Windows session (WS2), Firefox works just fine, even with the profiles from WS1.

Safe mode doesn't resolve anything.

It can't be a driver problem, as it's the same PC, shouldn't be a software problem, same reason, and both sessions are built pretty much the same way.

I tried uninstalling Firefox, using Windows Disk Cleanup as per this solution https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1219670 then reinstalling it again and no change.

I can't use the other Windows session as it's not mine, and I can't create a new one either.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Edit: I was finally allowed a new Win session and the problem disappeared. Can't delete the question though.

I tried FF 80 . Still same behaviour

I would like to sync my phone contacts with a file on my linux box. In that way i will be able to edit the file on the pc to look up or enter phone numbers that will be on the phone.

in a rational world, i would go to setup, select sync to file, accept the default of documents/firefox/phone-sync.txt and that would be it. is it possible in this world at all?

Tried reinstalling Umatrix and looking at the customize menu but its not showing up there either (restoring cutomize defaults doesnt help either). All my other addons show up just fine. Not having the Icon makes giving temp rules for sites pretty annoying.

Thanks

The background colour in the task bars for my Firefox and Thunderbird programs suddenly "inverted" (what was dark is now light and vice versa). Was this intentional on the part of Mozilla? Could it be an indication of a virus or other security threat?

Whenever I save a webpage, it says failed in the Download history. The page actually does save but shows it as failed. If I double-click on the "failed" page in the Download history, the download history says that it saved, but if I open the re-saved page the re-saved webpage many times looks like a non-html page or simply only saves part of the page. This is puzzling in that if I ignore the false message that the page failed to save and open the page from my download folder, all looks fine. Please help, Thanks, pianotech

Hi, I have been using Ubuntu Mate, for some time now, since the latest installed versions, Firefox is unable to print the invoices generated by the revenue agencies site. The print is generated empty, it only shows the details of the site and some accessory data at the top. I tried to install an old version, 78, if I remember correctly, and the prints are fine. I tried with another browser and the printouts are correct, again. Does it happen to you too?

YouTube works in all other browsers. I have restarted Firefox, uninstalled it and reinstalled fresh, nothing seems to work. Disabling addons does nothing. When I go to watch a video, I press the play button, the video loads sluggishly, and when loading is finished, before the video starts, I get "An error occured. Please try again later. (Playback ID: _______)". Vimeo works fine, but some news sites have the same issue. I have also tried just signing out of YouTube, and that does not work either.

This problem occurred Oct 24, 2020 Australian Eastern Daylight Savings Time (3 weeks after daylight savings time came into effect here). The operating system time is correct. I have cleared the cache several times, rebooted and shut down overnight.

A forum site is displaying the correct times. A site displaying weather information uses the correct time; I loaded it just after 3am and the first time it displayed was 6am as expected.

1. A TV guide normally highlights in red programs currently showing; at present it shows programs showing one hour previously. In Google-Chrome no programs are highlighted. I have removed the cookies and that has made no difference. 2. Facebook.com times are one hour late, both the time of posts in the newsfeed and times of notifications.
