Greetings. so I have been using this type of browser since netscape vs ie. enjoy and use firefox daily, when i can. there seems to be a weird process of constantly changing the software, and not allowing reliability. I can set for no updates, or only if i allow it, but firefox ignores me and updates anyway and then displays a new front page describing the mischief the coders have been up to. couple weeks ago, you broke it. dead. like a brick. switched to brave, there were a couple updates, you undid whatever you broke, fine. then a day or two ago, broke it again. not really a fun game. once i am able to move bookmarks over to brave, why do firefox? it takes forever to start, presumably while it sends all my browsing history and downloads to be examined for commercial potential. I can give fire fox a 2 or 3 minute headstart, hit brave, in 10 seconds i can use it, firefox still busy with industrial spying, or something. eating a sandwich? who knows. if there is any way to tell the coders to create a do not change, leave my damn browser alone because it works button, that would be nice. otherwise, its just a weird game for someone i guess, but i dont have time to play.....

This morning I could not log into the Schwab customer website using current Firefox version 123.0 on Windows 11. Reverting to version 122.0b9 solved the problem. Before the reversion I tried clearing cache, history, passwords, etc, and I tried a full reinstall of version 123.0. What else would prevent a connection to Schwab when other websites worked fine?

Hey folks... I am running the latest ESR version for windows 7. I know, its limited support and stuff but I have this most annoying problem that just doesn't seem to want to go away.

Every day, several times a day, I am told there is an update available. I have gone in several times and downloaded and installed the latest release. The install goes fine, there are no issues. Yet, over and over again I am told there is an update... but I have the latest version installed.

In the past, I have used the "distribution" folder trick to stop updates and I have removed that a long time ago. I can't figure out why it keeps telling me there are updates, when there are none.

How can I stop this from doing updates where there are no updates to get? It's driving me nuts...

Again I had to create a new question because i still get an "Unexpected error" when I try to answer. (By the way I tried all suggestions to fix the error and also reinstalled Firefox but still have the error)

jscher2000 i think you are correct. The blue link in the PDF file is not a web link but a link to the specific attachment. It appears browsers are currently unable (not programmed) to access attachments directly. I tried in MS Edge with the same result. After contacting MS Support, MS stated that they are aware of the issue and that they are working to fix it in a future release of Edge.

Attachments can be accesses in Adobe Acrobat as you described, but it would be good to be able to access them directly from Firefox instead of having to save them and then using Acrobat.

After an update yesterday, I found out the password manager integrated in Firefox was completely empty. I tried to rename logins.json.corrupt into logins.json, I tried deactivating all the plugins and I also tried copying the file into a new Firefox profile but it got corrupted right away again. If I put in an old logins.json it works but unfortunately it's a saved file from about 3 years ago.... Any idea about how I could get my passwords back? How to "uncorrupt" the logins.json?

Thank you in advance.

I've been trying to reply to moderator "Phil" who requested information regarding Firefox crashing while on Youtube. When I press "Post reply" all I get is an error message:


An Error Occurred

Oh, no! It looks like an unexpected error occurred. We've already notified the site administrators. Please try again now, or in a few minutes.

It's important "Phil" gets my message as others may be affected my possible Youtube shenanigans. If possible, can you forward this message to "Phil": Unfortunately there are only two reports generated during the problems with Youtube:

bp-91f496a8-971c-4a87-a642-011d10240220 bp-7d820f6c-dcf9-4cef-bb60-1a9f50240217

The problem caused my system to stop responding forcing me to power cycle to clear my PC, so no reports could be generated. Hopefully these two will show what the problem is. In the meantime, can you check the reply system to make certain it's working properly?

My company uses Oracle Fusion as its ERP solution, and I frequently have to download files from Oracle BI Publisher. Prior to V123 of Firefox, which installed this morning, I could click on the file/report in Oracle Fusion, and the file/report would get moved to my Downloads folder. After the update to V123, nothing happens after I click on the file. I had a co-worker replicate the problem after his Firefox updated to V123. Please advise if this is a known issue and if there is a resolution.

This AM, I opened my Firefox Browser for the first time today and attempted to sign into my EaseUS account. I was confronted by a "request" to add "Browsing Safety by Safely" as an add-on to my Firefox. However, it would not let me to skip this "request" without adding it to Firefox. Nothing I attempted worked. I've never heard of a compulsory add-on, least of all from Mozilla! If I would have had the time, I'd have tried different accounts/log-ons/browsers, etc. However, I didn't have the time to do it then. Help please.

What is this? Have you heard of it? Do I have a problem? Should I remove the Add-On?

Thank you.

FF version Extended Support 115.70esr (64bit) I have set /General/Startup/"Open previous windows and tab" - FF does not restore. It worked as expect before I upgraded opsys (Opensuse15.4 to Opensuse15.5).

Please note: I AM NOT TRYING TO RECOVER FROM BEFORE THE UPGRADE! I am trying to get FF working normally (for me) with my usage and history SINCE the upgrade.

After reading https://support.mozilla.org/mk/questions/1407888 I believe I have tried everything there. FF sometimes restores one single historic tab, sometimes it comes with with one single tab opened to my default page.

1) "sessionstore.jsonlz4" did not exist in the main profile dir. (It does not because I followed instructions in the link above to copy it there and try again).

2) I do have a session file, found in sessionstore-backups dir , displayed with this recommended online converter/translater "https://www.jeffersonscher.com/res/scrounger.html"; it shows the expected windows and tabs.

3) Starting after copying the "sess...jsoniz4" file into the main profile dir, I get one window with one tab displayed; I had about 4-5 windows and 15-20 tabs open when I last closed FF, although when doing research, I often have a 10-dozen windows with 100+ tabs.

4) The History menu does not show a "Restore..." option at all. In the window that did open with a historic tab, the History/RecentlyClosedTabs contains a list of plausible sites, about 10, which may be correct for that window. But there were certainly many that were actually open at the time I shut down FF and the window has only opened one.

Thank you for any help here. Rufus

I've been trying to reply to my previous question here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1440060, but my reply ends with an error - c attached. Therefore, I'm starting this new thread.

First, thank you for the answers. I have run into an issue and also have a follow-up question.

Follow up question: A while ago, I changed the autoplay settings in about:config, but I noticed they reverted to default. Do these settings reset with major browser updates? Or could it be that the settings' names changed, resulting in the default value being applied? Should I periodically check these values to ensure they haven't changed?

Issue: I updated the settings in about:config as mentioned in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1440060 by cor-el. It appears to have stopped the autoplay of videos. However, after browsing Google News and Yahoo News articles for about 30 minutes, my browser crashes. This happens under the same usage pattern as before. The browser becomes unresponsive, and if I click on anything, I see the rainbow Apple spinning wheel. Eventually, I have to force quit the browser. See attached.

Thank you!

I'm using a Hotspot provided by Cisco in a library and when first connecting to the Wireless network, Firefox prompts me to login to network in order to have Internet access (expected and works fine). However, once the time session expires Firefox will sometimes prompt again to login. When this fails and internet access is abruptly ended, I've to reconnect to the Wireless network and have Firefox prompt to login.

This is a security vulnerability as someone could advertise the BSSID of the router and have victims connect to their Hotspot instead of the true one.
