Every time I open Firefox it brings up a screen as if I am a brand new user starting out for the very first time. The disk image in my downloads folder has long since been deleted, so I'm pretty sure it's not running from that. I went and looked at "application binary" and it gave me a headache, plus there was no indication in the prior "support" replies of what the changes I might or might not observe therein would mean, so I was unmotivated to keep turning Firefox off and on and then checking to see if any of the characters in the very long text string had changed. I seem to have about 10 profiles, none of which have been created by me on purpose. I tried opening a couple of them, and got messages about various updates Firefox wanted to perform, but none of the opening screens had my information loaded. I've just lost a half hour of my life down this rathole this morning, and I still haven't gotten around to completing the search which was the reason I opened Firefox this morning in the first place. Imma have to go back and use Safari I guess, since Safari isn't suffering from "Susan Amnesia"

When Firefox updates, it's an extremely frustrating experience. Enough so that I'm about ready to switch over to Chrome (I already use it for work). Every single time, websites suddenly can't load and all my extensions stop working. It's happening now! I'm writing this from Chrome.

I'm frankly not sure when or why websites start loading again, but it seems to take about a day for things to get back to normal. I've tried closing and reopening Firefox, but that doesn't seem to do anything. It just takes time. I have a 2017 MacBook, OS Catalina 10.15.3.

Is this a known issue? I see all kinds of possible solutions when I try and look for some myself, but oftentimes the OP says they didn't work and then people offer other solutions. I'm wondering why this seems to happen, and if there's a suggestion for how to fix it once and for all—I've never had this problem with Chrome.

In Firefox Gmail, trying to use Google Hangouts to call and the microphone is not available. I've added a picture of how it looks in Safari and Chrome with the same Gmail account. Yet in Firefox the microphone option is not available (see pic).

I've tested all the mac functions and the Built-in Microphone works in for dictation, FaceTime, Skype, etc. It Also works well in Safari and Chrome, just not in Firefox.

Anyone has a solution?

Firefox updated yesterday and ever since then it will not open at all. I am running the latest macOS on a MacBook Air. It just bounces on the Dock once then doesn't open at all. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling AND I even tried to downgrade back to 70.0.1 and it STILL didn't work. It won't even open in Safe Mode.

Firefox suddenly won't open on Mac, despite clean reinstall

I am having a similar ongoing issue with Firefox refusing to open, and none of the fixes I've seen in this forum have worked. When clicking the icon it bounces once and then disappears from the dock. Honestly, this started happening about August 2018, and in my troubleshooting decided to give the Developer edition a try, and for some reason that one worked so I stuck with it.

Shortly thereafter (a week or two) whenever I closed down the Mac, Firefox Dev wouldn't re-open. Deleting and reinstalling would work, but I'd have to re-set all my settings, re-activate the theme, etc., and all the browsing history would be lost. So, since then I would rarely shut it down.

A few days ago I had to shut the Mac down completely, but this time Firefox Dev wouldn't open after re-installing. Oddly, I tried regular Firefox again as a solution, and it opened this time. I tested it out by shutting the Mac down completely, then restarting, and it retained all of the settings! I was really glad to once again be able to shut down my laptop at the end of the day without the headache of having to reinstall and re-set everything.

Then this morning, boom - back to the same nonsense, except now it won't open at all. Neither the regular FF or the Developer edition will work. I've done clean uninstalls to see if that was the problem, as in: removed them from the Applications folder, removed them from the Downloads folder, removed the /Firefox folder from user/Library/Application Support/, and emptying the Trash.

I saw in one Support post to delete the fbplugin file, 'as that had been causing Firefox to crash'. The closest I found to an 'fbplugin' file was a bundle-config.1 file, which contained 'fbplugin' throughout the file code numerous times. I renamed it temporarily, but didn't delete it. That didn't help the non-opening problem either.

I also tried installing Firefox v 71, same result as the others.

Keep in mind after attempting all of these solutions of deleting, reinstalling, changing file names, etc., I did a complete shutdown and restart. Also, I have not downloaded, updated, or changed anything since last week's phenomenon of regular Firefox beginning to work again. So I'm completely stumped and would appreciate any help. I'm currently running macOS Catalina 10.15.3. TIA.

I have downloaded the "latest version" of Firefox to my Mac which is running macOS Catalina Version 10.15.3. After 7-10 days Firefox will not "open". I then uninstall it, and reinstall it. Again it works for 7-10 days then will not open at all. I have gone through these install / uninstall processes at least 10 times. Yet after 7-10 days Firefox will not open. What is causing this, and how can I keep Firefox working continuously on my Mac? Thank You. WA

P.S. - I am sending this question from a Windows 10 computer because I cannot open Firefox on my Mac.

A few weeks ago, I had an iMac meltdown. When the repair was finished, I no longer had any of my browser history or preferences, though the tech was able to save my bookmarks. But there's one thing I can't figure out, in terms of restoring Firefox in a way that duplicates how I had it.

At the top of a Firefox page, when multiple tabs are open, I used to have a button to the right of the most recent tab, near the + sign, that gave me a vertical list of all open tabs. That's gone, and although I've looked through all my preferences, I can't fine one that brings it back.

Thankful for any suggestions!

I have not been able to boot Firefox for several weeks now, I've tried my best to fix it but have yet to succeed. I do have several add-ons, but can't modify or delete/disable because Firefox crashes on startup. Any help/ideas would be greatly appreciated. My crash reports cite EXC_BAD_ACCESS / EXC_I386_GPFLT . I haven't been able to find an explanation of those errors.

Recently I've been having trouble with the dropdown menus in Firefox, such as the History and Bookmarks menu in the tool bar and the right-click menu. Intermittently when I open the menus they close within a second or two without me doing anything. This only happens in the Firefox window, all of my other apps and browsers are fine.

I'm running on a Macbook Pro with OSX 10.15.1 and Firefox 70.0.1. I've restarted Firefox and it fixes the problem for a short time then the problem returns. I've cleared my History, including Caches and Cookies, reinstalled Firefox, restarted my computer and tried disabling my add-ons. The issue keeps coming back.

I had Firefox running for days, maybe even weeks without restarting on my MacBook Pro. Then Firefox crashed and restarted in an auto-installed update a couple of weeks ago. Firefox was unusable for me from then on. It looks like the display is shifted down half a screen, so the bottom of the window is drawn at the top and the top of the window is drawn at the bottom. Mouse-interaction still functions as if the display did not shift, so it is challenging to click around.

I've cleared out everything. Every application settings folder and profile folder I could find, removed Firefox altogether and installed an older version of Firefox. This works right up until an update is installed again. I also made sure I updated OSX to the latest version. The last couple of weeks I've been using Firefox Firefox 61.0b8 without any problems (I disabled auto-updates). But when I installed the latest Firefox version again today, same problem popped up. I'm all out of ideas right now.

Today I update MacOS Catalina and the same as the update some weeks ago Firefox is removed. I could not find the app anymore (the dock presented a big ? at the place where firefox was.) Last time I downloaded and re-installed Firefox, but today again all is gone after the automatic update of Catalina. On my iPad and iPhone there are no problems. Now I did remove all remaining Mozilla files on the Mac and are prepared to download again.


Why is the app removed? Or must I adjust the installation

Pages don't load: YouTube, messenger, LinkedIn, Facebook, reddit, nothing loads, shows toolbar and not even that work well Page buttons don't work Firefox account can't enable it's own cookies to log in, keeps saying I'm blocking them... All my add ons disappeared - all.

I've seen people posting this issue with the previous version and Firefox said it would be fixed with this? Well, I didn't have problems before. I have now. I'm using safari. Everything works with safari and chrome.

So don't suggest deleting addons, delete all my software and hardware and change all the settings, create new profiles, log in in safe mode, etc, because the problem is not my computer, it's Firefox and since the update. Simply fix this version. It's bugged.

thank you
