Firefox stopped working today. Every time I launch it, it responds with: "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window."

I launched Task Manager and killed the active processes, relaunched ff - did not resolve the issue.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled ff multiple times - did not resolve the issue.

I have removed the lock as per here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-already-running-not-responding#:~:text=Right%2Dclick%20on%20an%20empty,it)%20and%20click%20End%20Process.

I have verified the access rights as per here: https://www.minitool.com/news/fix-firefox-is-already-running-but-is-not-responding.html

I have completely removed all the mozilla entries from both Program Files AND in the registry, then reinstalled. did not resolve the issue. registry instructions from here: https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/s9lguc/how_to_completely_uninstall_firefox/

I have tried to delete existing profiles AND create a new profile but I always get an error: "An unexpected error has prevented your changes from being saved." https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-remove-switch-firefox-profiles#w_start-the-profile-manager-when-firefox-is-closed

I'm out of things to try. Hate to abandon Firefox but I'm at the end of my capabilities.

Firefox does not play videos from this website: https://texassports.com/index.aspx. Only showing a black box.

Edge and Chrome play the videos with no problem.

This problem exists on three different laptops, two W10s and one W7.

I am a long time user of Firefox and have never had this problem before.

What setting(s) do I need to change?

Auto-updated to v105 today (105.0.2 64-bit Windows 10) and all bookmarks were gone. Not just gone but the bookmark manager seems not to be rendering properly (see attached image where there should be at least some elements drawn). Additionally, neither the bookmarks nor history left pane show anything (second attachment).

The 105 update was applied this morning when first opening the browser. Profile folder -> bookmarkbackups shows a backup from just before the update. Bookmark library -> Restore gives that backup as an option, but restoring that backup has no effect (does nothing).

Exiting Firefox and manually moving places.sqlite to a backup location and then restarting also has no effect. places.sqlite is rebuilt but library -> restore still has no effect.

I just made the switch from Chrome to Firefox, and I'm still trying to understand the small differences that exist between the 2 browsers.

While on Twitter, what I usually do is middle-click with my mouse on a Tweet to a new tab that I want to look into later, then continue scrolling down my timeline, then check out the Tweets I opened in the new tab(s). However, when I try to do the same thing on Firefox, it automatically opens the new tab. Because of how Twitter works, this also reloads the Home page when I opened it up, so I just lose anything I was just looking at when I opened the Tweet in a new tab.

What can I do differently here?

Recently updated to version 105.0.1 and I've started to have problems with Twitch. I'm unable to login and keep getting the message: "Something went wrong. Please try again." so I cleared the cookies/site data. Still unable to login. I know this isn't an error with my account as I can login via Chrome with no issues. Then I tried downgrading to the previous version 104.0.2 and had no issues with Twitch. Most likely, this new version is creating an error with the Twitch site. Hopefully new updates will address this issue - in the meantime, hoping someone has a solution.

For years I've set the background display color in about:config to a medium gray, #CCCCCC. Main purpose was to change the background color of the about:blank page, which is my home page and my new tab page.

Note I am not overriding colors; #CCCCCC only showed up as the bgcolor for about:blank. Occasionally websites which forgot to specify a background color would show up with a medium gray background, a minor inconvenience and a hint their coding was not so great.

Just realized my background color selection for about:blank isn't working anymore. The background color of the about:blank page is white. Not sure when it changed. I failed to notice when the medium gray disappeared because I have been reflexively pressing the dim screen button. I have vision issues and need to avoid a white screen.

There was a question in 2021 about the about:blank page bgcolor turning white which was archived but does not look resolved.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1344438

Does about:blank now specify a bgcolor, overriding my about:config setting? I still have browser.display.background_color set to #CCCCCC. Do I need to change another value for about:blank now? Thanks for your help.

Hello, I use Firefox 105 on my PC. I have embedded various YouTube videos on my website. I've had the following problem for a few days: I can see my videos on both my smartphone and tablet without going to YouTube. On my PC (Win 10 Pro Vers. 21H2) the display wheel "rolls" without opening the video (... "an error has occurred, try again later"). But if I click on: "Watch on YouTube" plays the video via YouTube correctly. Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this? Is there a wrong setting in the Firefox browser? Many thanks and best regards Helmut

When attempting to log into support.discord.com, I can't click sign in, as a cookie is blocking me. Discord have told me as it's a specific problem with Firefox, I needed to ask, it also appears to be something that I've setup in Firefox, as a fresh install worked fine.

In the popup for logging in, I get a banner message stating: "Cookies required to use Firefox

To continue signing in using Firefox, allow cookies to be stored on this device. You might see this screen more than once. " with a continue hyperlink at the bottom. This generates a popup asking me to accept a cookie. I accepted this, but it's still blocking me from logging in. I have tried disabling my extensions that might block the cookie, and they have also allowed the cookie that was requested.

On a brand new browser, it's fine. I have strict blocking enabled, with ublock and duckduckgo's extension (all were disabled when I was testing if they were blocking it) and I still can't log in. I'm not sure what else is being blocked (other than google analytics, but that shouldn't stop me logging in).

I do also get some console errors: Uncaught ReferenceError: $ is not defined

I recently updated to windows 11 and now when I open firefox my tabs are no longer there. I have repeatedly gone into settings and checked "open previous windows and tabs". Dosnt work. Still opens to a blank browser with only one 'new tab' present. Most troublesome since having my tabs for my email addresses, calender and google keep come up each time is a big time saver for me. Ive been doing this for years and thanked mozilla silently many times for this. But now Whats Up???

Hope someone can help. I see it was posted last year but none of the response makes sense/applies to me.

ONCE AGAIN, I am having Hotmail issues through Firefox, and ONLY through Firefox!!! I had to go to PALE MOON AGAIN to use Hotmail. This is getting REALLY irritating. I can go to ANY OTHER website through Firefox with no issue, but Hotmaill? Oh no, of course not. Your damn browser refuses to cooperate and Hotmail just sits there for the past TWENTY-FOUR HOURS with a waiting symbol and stalls out, refusing to do ANYTHING to refresh the page, and when I try and open an email, Hotmail says, "We're sorry, we can't display that message right now." But when I use Pale Moon, NO PROBLEMS WHATSOEVER!!!! FIx your damn browser to work with Hotmail CORRECTLY this is YOUR problem!!! Since it works FINE through Pale Moon the problem is OBVIOUSLY with YOU!!! I am so sick and tired of YOUR BROWSER stalling out and causing issues ALL THE TIME! DO SOMETHING!!!

Every & then, this problem is filed over mozilla support, it's contributors just straight up archive the issue. Please don't do such nonsense.

On firefox v44, ability to ask to save cookies for each every website was being removed. And it's defaulted to save cookies permanently. I could change it to delete after current session. But the issue is, I have to keep track of all savable cookies manually, which is a hor$s$shit task. If anyone know how to do this on latest firefox, please lemme know.

Hi,

I have been using Firefox and Thunderbird for ages now. In the good old days, the automatic update function worked in both Firefox and Thunderbird. However, for at least a year now, neither Firefox nor Thunderbird installs the updated version(s) whenever they are available. Please look at the attached screenshots of my respective settings.

These days I am always warned by a third application that either or both Firefox and Thunderbird has/have update(s). Then I have to install the update(s) manually.

I would appreciate your feedback or advice.
