I have been using Firefox for many years now. I use Pinterest all the time and some months ago the whole thing changed. The pins and boards became extremely small, it does not allow me to print anything (only the title of the page gets printed. I used to have 4 pics across and now there are about 6 and that is why everything looks very small. I have contacted Pinterest Help but they told me to clear the cache which I did and nothing. I have spent over $200 to get technical support on my laptop because I thought it was a windows problem. They couldn't fix it. I told them that I was able to use Pinterest for years and they answered me that it has to do with new updates on Firefox because an older version of firefox seemed to work and that certain algorithm's must have been changed. I really like firefox for the ease of this browser in so many other ways. Please help me as this is truly making me sad.

Thank you, Tobi

At the top of my home page I consistently get spams to download Edge. My Firefox browser is up to date version 78.0.2. I should be able to keep my home page safe from constant spamming. I have searched numerous ways to control what I view & come empty handed. It appears Mozilla & Microsoft are in cahoots. I managed to block it with AdBlock but the update removed my block. Why do you even allow this? Your help is appreciated. Thanks

Hello.

(Sorry about messy English.)

(1) I set preferences as below.

   network.cookie.lifetimePolicy =0 (accept cookies normally)
   privacy.clearOnShutdown.* =true (define what data is cleared when Firefox is closed)
   privacy.sanitize.sanitizeOnShutdown =true (make Firefox clear the data when it's closed)

These settings should make Firefox clear all my cookies when closed. But Firefox kept some of it. Firefox cleared the login state, but some site data such as volume control on Nicovideo's video player were kept. That means when you login to the site and watch a video at 17% volume, then close Firefox without clicking the logout link, reopen the same page, you'll see yourself logged out, but when you login to the site, you'll see the volume is set to 17% on the video player, not default 100%.

(2) Now I changed one setting.

   network.cookie.lifetimePolicy =2 (cookies are now for current session only)

This didn't work as intended either. Firefox sure cleared all the cookies, but it did in a weird way. The login states were working as intended. But some site data are not sheared between tabs. That means when you watch a video at 27% volume and close the tab, then revisit the same page, you'll see the volume on the video player is now set to the default 100%.

(3) And finally I found the one caused this.

   dom.ipc.processCount =1 (Firefox must run on a single process)
   network.cookie.lifetimePolicy =2 (same)
   privacy.sanitize.sanitizeOnShutdown =true (same)

I honestly don't understand why this works, but this way everything seems to be working properly. All cookies are sheared between tabs and they are cleared when Firefox is closed.

My question is:

(a) Why did this happen? Especially the situation (1) makes no sense to me. Why Firefox left some cookies when I told it to clear the cookies on shutdown?

(b) Is there any way to share data between processes? I don't want my Firefox to be single-processed slow browser.

Thanks.

Hello, this is getting annoying, i already reinstalled Firefox and again i get this message in top right corner: "Firefox can't update". I have checked in setting: automatically install updates. However i disabled background service. I don't want to use it. And automatic updates are still enabled, so there shouldn't be reason for it - to not work. Thanks for answer.

After updating this morning (I'm not sure if firefox was upgraded at this point) and restarting my computer firefox now exhibits a strange behavior. Every page I open it automatically scrolls through every scroll bar on the page. Thankfully most pages have only the one, down. However, if I get on a page with lots of iframes it will automatically scroll through each one of them in turn as well as scroll to the bottom of the page. I can't seem to interrupt this process until it's completed. Once it's done I can scroll back to the top, or correct any horizontal/vertical iframes and continue on as normal.

I've followed the instructions at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-and-diagnose-firefox-problems to no avail. I've opened firefox in windows as well and it doesn't seem to have this behavior. I've started in safe mode and it still does it. I manually turned off each plugin as well one by one and still, this problem persists.

For reference: Kernel version: 5.7.7-arch1-1 application.architecture: x86-64 application.buildid: 20200701193652 application.version: 78.0.1

Error message: E:\Users\Sarah\AppData\Local\Temp\xxxxx.xxx.part could not be saved, because the source file could not be read. Try again later, or contact the server administrator.

I do want to mention upfront that this issue is also affecting Chrome and IE. It's not solely a Firefox issue, but I'm hoping someone here can help me anyways.

  • This happens for any filetype, from any source.
  • It started happening about a month ago.
  • Prior to that, I installed a new motherboard, RAM and processor. I'm fairly certain there was a period between these events in which it worked fine, but I am mentioning it just in case it's relevant.
  • If it's a small file and I try repeatedly, it sometimes will eventually download.
  • Even if a large file successfully starts downloading, it will eventually fail. It usually fails immediately though.
  • I sometimes have success downloading the same file in Chrome, but it also often fails. IE as well.

I have tried the following:

  • Used Refresh Firefox
  • Cleared download history
  • Changed download location
  • Reset browser.download values
  • Disabled firewalls and antivirus/spyware
  • Reinstalled Firefox using Run as Admin (first uninstalled previous version and deleted all program files that I could find, including profiles)
  • Cleared cookies and cache
  • Ran in safe mode
  • Verified Temp folder filepath was valid
  • Verified the PART file was created in that path -- it exists until I hit OK on the error message, then it disappears
  • Ran Firefox as admin

I think these are outdated methods I only found on non-official sources, but will mention them just in case:

  • I found some sources that said to delete Compreg.dat; I could not find this file in the place listed, nor could I find it with a search of the entire drive
  • Verified places.sqlite was not set to read-only
  • Removed read-only from entire profile folder and subfolders

In Options > Security: 'Block dangerous & deceptive content': true, 'Block dangerous downloads': false

Internet speed test: 58.96 Mbps download; 148.04 Mbps upload. No connection loss.

This problem is absolutely maddening. I'll be so grateful if anyone can help me out!! :( Thank you in advance, I know this was a long read!

Hi. I enjoy using Firefox and support Mozilla, but I am fast starting to lose patience. I do not use Google and try to avoid anything to do with it. I set Duckduckgo as my browser and remove Google from the list of search engines. Every time Firefox updates, I find that my settings are changed without my knowledge and my search engine defaults to b***** Google! Then I have to waste time changing settings again. Can I stop this from happening or do I just have to move away from Firefox? Thanks a lot. Des

I changed my local timezone, but the browser didn't detect the latest one. On clearing cache and data, couldn't see the changed timezone. But on closing the browser and opening again, I found a changed time zone reflecting on the browser.

Is there any way, without closing the Mozilla browser, the browser can detect changed timezone?
