I upgraded to Catalina (Mac OS 10.15.6) from High Sierra and now Firefox 79.0 won't open most web pages--it just displays a blank window and a little dot dancing left & right in the tab. A few web pages (e.g., support.mozilla.org) work OK. I restarted Firefox in safe mode; rebooted the system; and searched System Preferences/Security & Privacy in vain for a request from Firefox but nothing helps. Suggestions?

Also, Catalina crashes and restarts about twice a day, so far always when I'm out of the room, but I don't know if Firefox has a hand in it.

Hi.

My PC died a few days ago, I took it to a repair shop, and the guys there installed an SDD, reinstalled Windows 10 on the SDD after saving (almost) all the data from the old hard disk. Yes, I know they should have made a clone with one of those cloning programs, but they didn't and now it's too late and there's nothing I can do about it. I managed to find the Firefox folder in the old Program File folder. It contains the following files. Is there any way to recover the bookmarks, passwords or the session I had saved with this add-on: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/tab-session-manager/ ? I didn't have a Firefox account. I used the browser without being logged into any account, but I had a lot of bookmarks.

Recently did the automatic upgrade of FireFox for Windows on one of my computers that was not logged in (sync) with FireFox. Upon completion all of my bookmarks and history were gone. An upgrade should not have done that.

Thought someone would want to know.

Hello everyone,

 I just bought a Macbook Air and want to use Firefox. Pardon my ignorance, I am not tech savvy, for I've a basic question. I started to install Firefox by clicking on the download button but the following message popped up: 

"Do you want to allow downloads on 'www.mozilla.org'? You can change which websites can download files in website preferences."

 I do not know what is right: to click on "cancel" or "allow" to proceed? I haven't a clue what is the right choice. I am not going to do anything beyond the basic, everyday stuff on my laptop, just want to make the smart choice to begin with, keepin' it simple. Thanks everyone!

Restoring a saved profile

I have Windows 10, version 1903. I recently backed up my Mozilla Roaming and Local profiles to an external drive before replacing the hard drive in my laptop.

After replacing my hard drive with a new one, I restored an earlier image file of my computer in order to put back all my data onto the new drive.

Then I did a Fresh Start, effectively doing a new install of Windows 10 (v.1903).

(As far as I can tell, my old Firefox data was deleted during the Fresh Start reinstall.)

I now did a new install of Firefox onto my computer. After I opened it I synced. Because my favicons were not restored (a generic globe icon shows in their place instead), I'd like to load in my old saved profile and make that my default profile.

The problem: So I tried copying and pasting the saved profile ("bxfz7tby.default" ) back into the new Mozilla Roaming and Local profiles (e.g, into "C:\Users\,username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\", but I can't get Firefox to access them. Instead, it only accesses the new profile it created.

I did an uninstall and tried it again, but all I ended up doing is creating another new profile. Now when I go to About:Profiles (see image), the default-release and default profiles listed don't seem to exist anymore (they aren't loadable, and they can't be found using the filepath noted there), and the actual backup profiles that I copied from my portable drive into Mozilla and that I actually see in File Explorer, doesn't show up as a profile choice.

How can I restore my old backed up profile? And if I do restore it successfully, will that also restore my missing favicons?

I recently transitioned from windows 10 to elementary os. My preferred download option is to ask me where to save each file. And so when I download something, the file manager opens. BUT when I hover my mouse over the navigation bar (to quickly get out of nested windows or make a new folder), the file manager automatically closes.

what gives? this does not happen in chrome.

Hi, Yesterday I installed a new version of Firefox. And after that I can't run Netflix, Spotify and Viaplay. I can log in but when I want to start a movie or play some music it says that Firefox is installing components to play sound and video - but nothing happens. I have been using Firefox for many years and the programs have always worked - until yesterday after I installed the new version. I'm on a PC using windows. Any tips on how to proceed?

This one thing makes we simply switch to a different browser. Firefox, downloads and installs updates in the background. OK. It needs a browser restart to be able to setup the update. Not great but OK. But suddenly it would completely disable the user from not using the browser until an update is performed (See Image). But why? Not OK!

I am totally fine with the browser needing a restart to finish update. But why wouldn't Firefox not let me decide when I want that. Until I am ready let me use the browser. I really wish they don't freeze the browser like that.

Is there someone looking to address this issue in a future version? Is this only happening to me?

Just installed the update to v79 (64 bit) on Win 10 v2004 (64 bit). I when Firefox reopened, I went to YouTube to watch a video and play would not work. You get the "thumbnail" pic of video and then the screen goes black and an error message appears saying the video cannot be played. I turned off the Hardware Accelerator, rebooted, same issue. Restarted in Safe Mode, same issue. Updated all Plug-Ins and Extensions, same problem. I can play YouTube videos in Chrome and Edge without issues.
