Hey y'all,

First, thanks for your attention. This has been driving me nuts over the last few weeks and if I can fix it I'd be very happy.

I switched to Firefox a few months ago and immediately set up the password manager and a bunch of bookmarks. Unfortunately, the next time I shut down my computer and restarted, Firefox said this browser was a new installation and had totally reset, with nothing saved.

This happened again a second time, so I set up a Firefox Account so I could have the settings saved to a profile rather than an installation.

Every time I restart the same thing happens: Firefox has a 'new installation' and none of my settings. The first time I logged in to my Firefox account to sync it, it worked. But I've just installed Catalina, previously using Mojave, and on that restart it happened again, but the Firefox account sync isn't doing anything. Now, every time I open up the browser, even if I haven't restarted the computer, it brings me to the same 'new installation' screen. When I log in to my Firefox account as prompted, none of my previous information syncs. Nothing happens at all after I get the "This Firefox is connected" screen.

I know the sync is at least somewhat connected because I can sync tabs from my phone to my computer.

Any ideas? I can re-do all of my passwords and bookmarks, but I don't want to bother if it isn't getting saved anywhere, or if I can't stop this factory reset whenever my computer shuts off.

I'm on a Macbook running Catalina 10.15 if that matters. Thanks!

Abby

Using FF 80 on Linux I'm getting increasing difficulty with processing pages. At first I assumed senility-onset (user not browser) but recently got feedback from a bank help desk that 'unable to process page at this time' was a browser message, not a site message and he advised using Chrome. Hah! Anyway I tried Chromium and it worked perfectly. Often a similar problem with payPal (not always). What's going on?

In the 'olden days' when Firefox was a new kid on the block there used to be a facility to report web sites that would not work with Firefox. Is it time to resurrect this? Is web design now being taken over by Google rather than (in the 'olden days') Microsoft?

Recent versions of Firefox have started crashing more and more often for me. As of version 80.0, it happens around 1–2 times a day on average, usually when the session has been running for a while. In the middle of work, Firefox window(s) will just disappear and the process is no longer running. This will happen both on my Windows 10 and my Windows 7 system.

I recently realised that I hadn't been seeing the Mozilla Crash Reporter window in a long time, on either system. I just assumed my crash reports were being sent in order to help fix these bugs, but today I decided to check, and saw that crash reports are not even generated anymore. When I oben about:crashes, I see that the last crash report is from May. I'm sure I've had Firefox crash many dozens of times since then, but the crash reporting facility seems to no longer work.

I tried running Firefox in Safe Mode as well. The result is the same: it will crash usually after a few hours of work, without any error, no crash reporter window, and no crash report showing up in about:crashes afterwards.

What could have broken my Crash Reporter functionality (and on both of my systems, too)? And how can I get it back to generating and submitting these reports?

It may be after a recent update, but Firefox no longer displays eBay pages correctly. The site appears as raw text, quite unformatted, with no images, and is useless for navigation or use. in fact, it looks very similar to the very old-styles "text only" displays that used to be alomst standard last century.

I have already deleted cookies and history.

I have little time to spend dealing with Firefox problems, and so have reluctantly stopped using it. I am now using a competitor's browser. However, if anyone has a quick simple solution I will take it. But Firefox's configurations menus are uselessly designed and one must scan the entire menu system quite often to find (and fail to find) whet one needs, so please (try to) make it quick & simple.

In hope, and possible thanks.

Aside from the general usability issues caused by nags screens and constant prompts in software, for various specific reasons I need to disable the update nags that appear every day in Firefox.

This used to be possible with a simple reminders setting in Firefox, which the developers now appear to have removed.

How can this be done now?

Thanks.

Oops! I must have clicked something by mistake. Suddenly email is hidden.

Start Firefox, see string of icons = top sites Click Mail.Yahoo icon (should see ATT.net email list) Left panel shows "Inbox" count 770; other entries also show counts. Clicking "Inbox" causes a thin blue line to appear above main panel, then vanish. Main panel shows just "Today" with no entries. Can compose and send email.

I'd certainly appreciate any help on this situation -- I'm in deep water here.

I use the save login info feature in Firefox. I have a saved login for a frequently used website. Firefox reliably fills out the username and password correctly for me. Recently it started asking me every time I log in to "Would you like to update this login?" prompt but with a bogus password. If I press "Update" it changes my password to this bogus password, so I have to press "Don't Update" every time I login just to keep my good password. If I do accidentally press "Update" I have to go to the "Saved Logins and Passwords" and manually fix my password for that website.

My question is, what would cause Firefox to think I have changed my password and give me this prompt when I have not?

And, by the way, the bogus password is always the word: "test" (my correct password is very strong and has over 20 characters).
