I have Windows 10, version 1903. I recently backed up my Mozilla Roaming and Local profiles to an external drive before replacing the hard drive in my laptop.

After replacing my hard drive with a new one, I restored an earlier image file of my computer in order to put back all my data onto the new drive.

Then I did a Fresh Start, effectively doing a new install of Windows 10 (v.1903).

(As far as I can tell, my old Firefox data was deleted during the Fresh Start reinstall.)

I now did a new install of Firefox onto my computer. After I opened it I synced. Because my favicons were not restored (a generic globe icon shows in their place instead), I'd like to load in my old saved profile and make that my default profile.

The problem: So I tried copying and pasting the saved profile ("bxfz7tby.default" ) back into the new Mozilla Roaming and Local profiles (e.g, into "C:\Users\,username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\", but I can't get Firefox to access them. Instead, it only accesses the new profile it created.

I did an uninstall and tried it again, but all I ended up doing is creating another new profile. Now when I go to About:Profiles (see image), the default-release and default profiles listed don't seem to exist anymore (they aren't loadable, and they can't be found using the filepath noted there), and the actual backup profiles that I copied from my portable drive into Mozilla and that I actually see in File Explorer, doesn't show up as a profile choice.

How can I restore my old backed up profile? And if I do restore it successfully, will that also restore my missing favicons?

Firefox 78.1 ESR W7

Is there any way to get the menu bar to have a unified appearance? Solid background mixed with a transparent one is not very nice looking. It would look much better if the solid background were also transparent. Anyone have a .css or other solution?

I use Xubuntu OS and installed Firefox from there many 4 months ago on this my new laptop, from Ubuntu repos. I now do not know what version it was.

About a month ago I noticed that every time I closed down the computer I saw a flashing image of what appeared to be a message from Firefox. It disappeared before I could read what it was about.

I uninstalled Firefox totally yesterday by purging the system, deleting the folders/files in /etc and /usr relating to it. I downloaded it from repos and installed it again However, the flashing image still appears every time I close down.

I decided to video the close down to pause it and see what this message was about. It was as I said in the subject above. I found two crash reports in about:crashes and have submitted them.

Please tell me how to stop this repeating message.

Also, when uninstalling Firefox I saved the logins and passwords but was unable to use the resulting csv to recover them. Is there a better way than manually?

I have a basic html index page being served by Ubuntu/Apache at `https://localhost/test.html`. I have `browser.enabled.ssb` set to `true` in about config.

When I open a regular browser window (Firefox 78.0.2) I can navigate to, and load `https://localhost/test.html` no problem but when I run `firefox --profile /home/ubuntu/.mozilla/firefox/a5pwja44.default-release --ssb https://localhost/test.html` I get a connection error. (This is the same profile I'm using when I open a new browser window).

Anybody know why this doesn't work or how to fix?

When I use Firefox 78 all requests are allowed. When I use FF 79, some (few) requests are blocked. Those requests break the page from loading properly. There are no messages in the console that suggest anything is being blocked. And the network tab just shows "blocked" on the request with no indication why it was blocked. I have not requested those URLs be blocked and the context menu has no "Unblock" option. Other requests that were slightly before and very similar looking were not blocked, some that come after and look similar are not blocked.

I have disabled all blocking features in Security & Privacy. Still blocked. (I don't think it was S&P blocking, there are no warnings etc.)

Otherwise, this an "out of the box" install with no changes made. Myself and a colleague are having the same problem with the same URLs being blocked. Other browsers, and earlier versions of FF are fine. Only FF 79 is experiencing the problem. I read the release notes, nothing stood out to me as a reason to block anything without an explanation.

(You won't be able to browse to our Jira, we 403 any requests from the internet. And these resources causing the problem are only needed after you login.)

Any suggestions on how to work out why those specific requests are blocked??

When i try to look at an image on firefox in it's own tab so i can see it bigger, it instead opts to download it instead of just showing it in the tab itself. This is annoying as I don't want to have to make a whole folder just for images that i've seen once and then never look at again. is there an option i might have chosen at some point that enables this? i'm not too sure. please help if someone is able to.

Hi,

I have had a really strange problem since working from home where i get broken calls with my softphone. To start with i put it down to my ISP/Router, but after some digging i noticed i am getting 400ms ping responses to my router at certain times of the day. All other devices on my network get <2ms ping responses. Reboot my surfacebook and pings go back to <5ms. After doing some testing i realised that it was Firefox causing the issues, soon as i close firefox, pings drop back to <2ms. Open firefox and work work on it for an hour or two and they creep back up to 400ms, close it and they drop. It's a test i have run multiple times as i didn't believe a browser would do this. Because i work in IT and i haven't reloaded my laptop for at least a year i thought i'd reload a fresh build of Windows...with just drivers and firefox....same problem. I have also run a stress test on the CPU / Memory to see if that had the same results, it doesn't.

I seem to have a 'bug' being introduced through firefox when I view youtube videos. it does not happen right away, it takes a few videos to happen. The partial solution I have found so far (having done this twice so far in almost as many days, and about to do it a second in one day.) is to do a complete uninstall of firefox, then do a windows defender offline scan (which seems to knock out whatever is left in the machine, it won't tell me what was found.) then to come back into win10 and doing a clean install which seems to work well enough (having multiple tabs open [I do miss being able to have large numbers of open tabs and not having my machine going nuts]) till I break down and check the youtube channels that I like to keep up with. main noticeable symptom is my machines cooling fan going into 'hyper' drive, then checking task manager and finding firefox using almost two gigs of memory and 40+% of cpu capacity. As I type this, with just one tab open, firefox is showing 563.3 MB and seven (7) sub? programs running. Before this latest flair up, for one tab open it would be under 400MB and five programs running?

Add-ons I run on Firefox: uBlock Origin, Adblock Plus, and DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials

Good morning all I am new in this house. Guido van Wijk, application engineer at RDC in Amsterdam (rdc.nl). We host large internet applications for the automotive industry in the Netherlands. Java based. 8.000 users. In this web-applications html, exit buttons are built-in to return to user-menu's where our customer (automotive company's such as car-dealers) can make an new choice to enter a new application. These exit-buttons perform wel under FireFox 78.x. The men is shown. Since the Firefox 79.0 update these buttons do not function anymore. Either the application-screen stays untouched (as the menu should be shown) or a full white screen is shown. Whic is also wrong. I have tested with an older Ffox 78.0 version on another PC and then everything works fine. What's going on here. I am not an software engineer.

The images show an example of 1 of our web-apps, OKR with the uitlogbutton, logout. And the usermenu which should be shown then. This works Ok with Ffox 78, not anymore with 79.0
