Hello, I'm running FF v.46.0.1 (because I depend on the Tab Groups add-on that doesn't work with FF Quantum) on a Win. 7 pro PC. For many years I've had an RT bookmark tab (among many others) and the RT News add-on (scrolling list of all RT stories) that I've used frequently every day. Yesterday, upon booting up, when clicking on the RT tab I got only my blank (opening) page or the prior page I'd been on. RT wouldn't load. Similarly the 'News' add-on opened but displayed nothing. All my other bookmark tabs worked normally, I could access RT via IE (no tab groups of course). Trying different means (such as opening specific RT URLs I could sometimes access that URL but it would frequently go blank (as if FF was saying 'Opps, I let that one through by mistake') but couldn't open other RT pages from that one.

Does anyone know what's going on here?

How do I fix it?

I cannot play instagram videos at all, or twitter videos, tumblr videos or vines on tumblr (vines on the vine site do work). Various other random players which I don't know the name of (such as the first video on this page http://www.rugbydump.com/2016/05/5073/ben-botica-inexplicably-kicks-the-ball-away-as-harlequins-attempt-late-comeback-in-final) don't work either. As the title states, the option media.windows-media-foundation.enabled in about:config doesn't exist, and neither does media.fragmented-mp4.enabled. Changing media.mediasource.mp4.enabled or media.wmf.enabled to false does not fix the problem. I have started Firefox in safe mode, reset it and reinstalled it. I've also downloaded the feature pack for Windows 10. My graphics card drivers, plugins and add-ons are all up to date. Other data given below. This is becoming incredibly frustrating.

Hello! I have run into an issue, for some reason Firefox is seeing Twitch.tv a common and popular Streaming website as a Mixed Content site and Not trusting it as a secure connection therefor not allowing me to proceed and view the site. I was curious is there a way for me to access Twitch and other sites that may have the same issue? Sites such as Youtube work completely fine, I have included a print screen of the issue.

Thank you for your time! All Help and suggestions are appreciated!

I currently use Firefox on Win XP sp3 and am preparing to install Win 7 which must be a clean install. I have a complete backup of the computer but I will need to reinstall all apps. I found the 'Backup Book marks to HTML' though I'm not sure it if also works for the toolbar websites. The password manager seems to only import from IE or Safari with no 'Export' Are there files/folders or a profile that I can simply copy from my backup to Win 7? I would prefer not to have to manually enter all my saved logins if possible.

Thanks

On too many occasions in the past when accepting 'upgrade' Roboform in particular was left unsupported and I had to waste time in 'downgrading'. I cannot afford to lose Roboform again. I'm also concerned about Speed Dial. I used the fix suggested for my present version of Firefox (v46.0.1) which, if I understand the caveat given at the time, may allow rogue add-ons or plug-ins to install themselves. I currently use:

  Roboform
  Speed Dial
  Google analytics opt-out
  ABP
  Garmin Communicator.

Sorry if this sounds picky! Regards...

Hi, would be grsteful if someone could help please.

I am now on my 4th Mac, using firefox and have never had a problem before. Had a new Mac for 3 weeks and every day there is a Firefox pop warning stating that a security update is available. I click on "About Firefox" and see that I am running 46.0.1 and that it states updates are available and to click on the link. Once I have clicked on the link, it launches but no updates can be completed.

Below is what is supposed to happen but nothing happens. "so is there no update available on 46.0.1 and if so why does Firefox send the pop-up warning every day ? The About Firefox window will open and Firefox will begin checking for updates and downloading them automatically. When the updates are ready to be installed, click Restart Firefox to Update. "

This was addressed in the archive post: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/949954

I brought this up now, because I had the same issue and that archived posting provided an answer that still works today.

Firefox developers failed to include a search result parameter that allows the user to see the full file path to the link, from parent folder to the link listing any subfolders along the way.

Because of the absence of this information, any bookmark search becomes completely useless as to wanting to know what folder contains the link.

The archived post provided a link to an extension for Firefox/Waterfox that allows the user to see the complete path to the link.

The extension is: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/show-parent-folder/

The archived post is now 3 yrs old, but this extension is up to date for the current version of FireFox/WaterFox browser and works perfectly. (No, I am not associate to the developer of the extension).

I thought by putting this back to the top of the Support list can help many others who have not found that archived post.

Cheers!

I just got a new computer and am trying to import bookmarks from the old one. Both computers are running Firefox 46.0.1. I've tried almost everything, trying to import the .json file, trying to import them in .html, trying to use sync, trying to swap the bookmarks files from my Firefox profile and nothing is working. I've also run the Places Maintenance add-on thing and it says my database is fine. Is my last resort just inputing the old bookmarks into the new system manually? Every time I try to import the backup file, no matter what format, it tells me it is "Unable to read the backup file."

Hi gentlefolk! I run Firefox on my Ubuntu laptop, my work Win7 laptop and my iPhone 5. All versions are up to date. I recently upgraded my Ubuntu laptop from 14.04 to 16.04. Since the upgrade, Firefox Sync has been misbehaving on the Ubuntu installation: - Passwords have not syncronised (but Bookmarks and Add-ons have) - Master Password is not set and attempting to set it (to the same password as on my other installations) fails - The list of saved passwords is empty - Sync frequently disconnects - When I attempt to reconnnect, I usually get the error message "you must be connected to the internet to sign in" - usually only the first time, after that it connects but passwords still don't sync

I've tried uninstalling FF and manually removing the relevant folders in 'etc' and 'usr', all to no avail. Saved passwords and Master Password are working fine on the Win7 installation. I have not recently changed the password or any Firefox Account information.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts. Yannisee

This morning, I tried to log onto a site I had saved with my email and my password. I had saved this a while back and it is a site that wants a mix of letters and numbers. when I tried to proceed, my login failed. It has been doing this for a couple of months. I went in and deleted it and reentered my info manually. I got a prompt for an update which I ok'd. When I tried to login again, I got a fail msg. I went into security and checked ad instead of my password as typed, It had saved it as an all numerical password. I tried a couple of more times and it keeps wanting to save as all digits instead of letters. Any ideas what I am not doing correctly?

And this appears as soon as I open mozilla: file:///C:/ProgramData/Medlights/snp.sc

Tried uninstalling, changing the browser preferences, tried reinstalling mozilla, downloading anti malware software and nothing seems to work.
