I noticed today that since early morning Firefox has downloaded over 5 gigs of data. This was not an authorized download or something I set up but seems to be files placed under AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ty3znz5x.default\cache2\entries. What bothers me is the source. These files came from video-edge-c6809c.lhr03.no-abs.hls.ttvnw.net and video-edge-c55f68.lhr03.no-abs.hls.ttvnw.net. IP tracker identifies this a a Twitch Interactive server (https://www.ip-tracker.org/locator/ip-lookup.php?ip=video-edge-c6809c.lhr03.no-abs.hls.ttvnw.net).

So what the hell is all this data and why is it coming from Twitch?

On some, not all, web sites, form fields are black with dark grey type. They are virtually invisible.

I am using Mint 19 with a Dark Theme and was using Google Chrome until recently. I've never seen this issue before.

I am mostly happy since returning to Firefox, but this problem is one that I must solve.

Thanks to all in advance!

Firefox always hangs for a few seconds after moving a tab or downloading something.

This only happens once per session and it's an either/or situation. Meaning, if I move a tab first, it will hang, but my 1st download will be fine. If I download something before moving a tab it will hang but then moving tabs will be fine.

After doing either one once, all subsequent downloads or tab moves are fine.

I would suspect it has something to do with the drawing of the interface because in both cases something new is happening at the top of the browser. This is just my uneducated guess based on similarities between the two issues.

i have set up a master password, which get prompted when I start Firefox, but when I type in the password Firefox adds 4 characters before my typed characters. These 4 characters do not show up in the password box. If you enter a blank box - four dots appear. So I spend ages trying to get my password logged correctly. By this time Firefox brings up a no connection error message! I have tried changing the password but this has no effect. I seem to recall Firefox doing this a while back but it was sorted by next update. Any advise would be gratefully recieved as it driving me nuts now!

Firefox loses the "Location" data from "Properties" of bookmarks.

I start Firefox and click a link on the Bookmark toolbar and it may work fine; if I restart Firefox that same link may not work; on checking "Properties" for that bookmark I find the "Location" now reads "about:blank".

If I restart Firefox again that link may now work (with the correct address now back again in the "Location" box) but another link could now be set to "about:blank". And so it goes on.

I have reinstalled Firefox three times and I have created a new profile with none of my bookmarks installed, and the problem still occurs.

I should greatly appreciate some help with this, as it making Firefox unusable.

I am running with ubuntu 18.04.2 I was having a problem with the snap version of firefox so I downloaded, and installed the non-snap version of firefox. Now I want to delete the snap version and use the other. My problem is that all my stuff is in the snap version. My thought is to save the profile of the snap version and then use that profile for the non snap version, delete both versions and reinstall the version I want to use. before I start, however, I thought I would ask whether that would work.

Thank you........

I had to file a support ticket to sign up?.....

The real problem is HSTS. Safari has no problem finding intermediate certificates to get to www.openssl.org, but Firefox 65.0.1 fails on both Mac and Linux. What gives??????? Firefox is clearly missing some code, or a root certificate, or has a bug in getting intermediate certificates that every other browser in the world seems to have.

After installing the update for Firefox, my ability to control my windows appears to have broken. I can't manually resize them nor can I do it the quick way by pulling them into corners or against the top of my screen. There appears to be a strange white frame around my browser when I hit the maximize window button, which also forces it into full screen. When in the size it boots up in (the size it had been pre-update), it appears to have something like another, retro window open behind and attached to it. Nothing else seems to be broken thus far, but there was some trouble trying to add photos to this post to give a visual of the problem.

I've never had a problem with Firefox or an update of it before in my life, and I'm at a complete loss as to what to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I called Apple support, and they helped me run a scan with MalwareBytes (the scan came up clean), but the problem is still recurring. The Apple support person said to contact Firefox.

How can I get them back? I've spent a lot of time with setting up Firefox so it would be comfortable to me, I've spent my time in it, and now it's all gone and I don't even remember the name of some add-ons I used to use.

This is has remained an ongoing issue from December 2018 that you at Mozilla have failed to resolve.

"The confirmation email we sent to n*******@****.** was returned and we’ve locked your account to protect your Firefox data." I'm pretty sure emails to that account are not bouncing. Could you please unlock my account so that I can access my sync account through THAT email, which actually accepts emails as I've tested many times? (For example, this mozilla account is linked to the same email address, for which I received a confirmation email from Mozilla itself a few minutes ago)

To make matters worse, I could not delete the account to start afresh, because or an incorrect-password response on the dialog form used to submit the change, Therefore I disconnected and now no longer am able to access that account from any browser. When I attempt to create a new account using the same email address, I am prompted with "Account exists", which is understandable.

Attempts to reset password ALWAYS result in an instantaneously displayed (with NO delay or pause) error, "Email was returned", and no email message ever gets sent from Mozilla, in inbox or spam.

I need this corrected immediately. Either resolve this by procedure OR perform and override and delete my account to allow creation of a new account with that SAME email address.

_________________________________ [previous unresolved incident]

This is the EXACT same scenario that I have attempted, but unlike the user mentioned below, who apparently was successful in receiving the reset email from Mozilla, I never received an email message, and Mozilla claims that the "email was just returned". All transpiring within the last 30 minutes, this exact same behavior has occurred whether I attempt a reset on the iOS device (iPhone Xs) or on the PC from which I have responded to this follow-up inquiry.


Something must be constitutionally wrong here, and I assure you that if any Mozilla email had been successfully delivered to the above ISP account, then spam filters would still have allowed examination of such message for my observation and manipulation.

That's not happening. I have added my account as a primary recipient of this response, as verification.
