Hi there,

I've searched and tried all the solutions I could find, but my FF browser still shows my timezone as Central, which is two hours ahead of my timezone, Pacific. MS Edge displays correctly, it's just FF that has the issue. There are a couple of add-ins that say they can update the timezone in FF, but not sure if I should use them (not trusted).

I verified that privacy.resistFingerprinting is set on false. Also, my control panel timezone is correct and set as Pacific, but just to see if it would correct it, I changed it and did a restart, changed it again and did a restart, and FF is still displaying Central time.

Thanks in advance for your help...

I wanted to get an couple new addons to my firefox browser. But whenever I try to get one i get the message 'Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt' whether I save the file and install it in windows, or trey to install at the firefox addons page. I have done multiple re-installs of the latest browser, cleaned every file out of the system, even joined this community in case I have to get some kind of membership to get addons.

I am out of ideas to solve the problem, and I cannot find anywhere on the internet where the 'Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt'. problem I have is solved. Please help.

I notice some reported this problem in 2020, in a post that's been archived.

I reported it previously in a different post, but I may not have provided enough information. I am using currently 91.10.0esr (64-bit) on openSUSE Leap 15.3 Linux.

When I right click on a web page, and choose "Save Page As..." from the menu that appears in response to the right click, then choose "Web Page, complete (*.htm *.html)" as how to save the page, Firefox goes through some process, something is placed on the disk drive. But often, the status of the download shows as "Failed". That is until I retry the download. I've even been able to "Show all downloads" and click on an icon to retry it, sometimes days or weeks later, without even re-visiting the web page which was originally saved, but after clicking on the icon to retry saving the page, the status shows as "Completed". It could just be an issue with Firefox reporting the status, rather than an actual failure.

Is this a "bug"/"error" in the program code for Firefox? If so, is there someway to report it, or will this post serve as such a report?

I'd appreciate any helpful thoughts.

Hi all,

Despite all my searching, I have not been able to find a solution to this issue that works for me. When I start watching a youtube video, it plays fine, zero interruptions. However the moment I touch the seek bar, pause the video for a moment, anything that interrupts the playback, I cannot watch more than 2 seconds of video before it will pause as if buffering for a few seconds, play again for a few seconds, pause again etc etc. over and over and over, making it impossible to watch any video at that point. Refreshing the page will fix it, but if I have to use the seek bar to get back to where I was, then the exact same issue will re-occur.

There is zero issue with playback on other browsers, such as chrome or edge.

I have tried enabling/disabling hardware acceleration, various codecs, user agents, refreshed firefox, started it in troubleshooting mode etc, nothing has helped.

After last or previous update, Firefox does not load home page. Get message with last tabs:

Sorry. We’re having trouble getting your pages back.

We are having trouble restoring your last browsing session. Select Restore Session to try again.

Still not able to restore your session? Sometimes a tab is causing the issue. View previous tabs, remove the checkmark from the tabs you don’t need to recover, and then restore.

Did all this it is still happening. Last time removing some file folder did not correct. Do not want it to restore last session!

What is causing this?

Hi,

For a couple of weeks I've noticed, that at night when I close Firefox and prepare to turn off my computer, the Firefox browser does not close properly.

I've also noticed that it takes a while for the browser to close. Maybe a minute or more as opposed to immediately as had been in the past. I've attached a picture and I always 'click' Quit Firefox.

I'm on an iMac running Monterey 12.4.

Thanks very much!

I entered my password accidentally into the username field on a webmail page. It keeps showing several entries I made in the past every time I log in. How do I get rid of these entries? I searched the subject and all the suggestions of deleting it in the dropdown box with SHIFT+DELETE or CTRL+DELETE don't work.

I also use Vivaldi browser and I have the same issue when logging in to webmail. The list of usernames is different from Firefox so I know the lists are tied to the particular browser. I was able to delete the entire list with Vivaldi and I logged in to webmail and auto-fill list is gone. Can't do the same in Firefox. Please help.

Hail all:

Now, Firefox has a very, VERY simple Bookmark Manager, that basically only allows to add, remove, and single-bookmark edit.

Now, I have for instance 6+K Youtube Links, which all, annoyingly, end with " - YouTube". I want to remove that idiocy, but to edit 6+K bookmarks, one by one?

Can you add a way to mass-edit bookmarks?

Also, can you add a "Explorer Tree Style" Bookmark manager, that shows all bookmarks in true Explorer style (As in:

All Bookmarks
--- Bookmarks Toolbar
--------- Folder 1
-------------Bookmark 1
-------------Bookmark 2
-------------Bookmark 3
------------- ...
-------- Folder 2
-------------Bookmark 1
-------------Bookmark 2
-------------  ...
--- Bookmarks Menu
--------- Folder 1
-------------Bookmark 1
-------------Bookmark 2
-------------Bookmark 3
-------------  ...
-------- Folder 2
------------ SubFolder 1
-----------------Bookmark 1
-----------------Bookmark 2
-----------------  ...
------------ SubFolder 2
-----------------Bookmark 1
-----------------Bookmark 2
-----------------  ...
-------------Bookmark 1
-------------Bookmark 2
-------------  ...
--- Other Bookmarks
--------- Folder 1
-------------Bookmark 1
-------------Bookmark 2
-------------Bookmark 3
-------------  ...
-------- Folder 2
-------------Bookmark 1
-------------Bookmark 2
-------------  ...

(without the "-" 's of course, this was my way to represent the folder and "bookmark file" system in tree form), with an option to see doubles in their respective folder/subfolder, with the normal editing functions? Since ... that would ultimately be darn helpful? Especially when implemented DIRECTLY into Firefox, so no additional tools are needed (add-ons) since these never have what I actually need.

I have a 700+ Bookmarks backup file, which says all. Far too many bookmarks to sift through, manually, without decent tools, thus the need to do it "one at a time".

Thank you very much.

Hi fellows.

I'm using Firefox accounts for long time, to be specific from Created ⁨6/26/2015⁩ as my Firefox account page says at password field, And lately starts to notice that a lot of saved logins and some history are missing. I have checked when oldest Last Modified item, it appears to be from Last modified: October 5, 2018 So, there is at least 3 years of lost data. Is it something normal!! Or its because i have a limited saving i guess. Or apparently logins and history older than 5 years are removed!? Please i want more details about these things, if as i guessed that 5 years old data will be removed, i have to save them in another sources. it maybe an issue in my PC i can fix and get these old data.

Really thank you and appreciate your time. Thank you.

Hello,

I've been corresponding with LastPass about this, but they now refer me to Firefox support.

I am using: Windows 11 Pro: Version 10.0.22000 Build 22000 Firefox browser: 101.0.1 (64-bit) LastPass Add-on for Firefox: 4.97.0.2 Phone: Samsung Galaxy S9+ with Android 10.0 LastPass Authenticator app on phone installed: version 2.7.0

Hello,

Enabling LastPass authenticator/passwordless has worked for my Chrome and Edge browsers on my Windows 11 PC [LastPass Version: 4.97.0]. However, it does NOT work with Firefox, so I need further help.

When I close the Firefox browser [version 101.0.1 (64-bit)]and re-launch it, then click on the LP extension icon [version 4.97.0.2] I first get a LP pop-up requesting “Accept Permissions” (see attached screenshot).

When I click through that with Accept, I get a regular LP login prompt requesting both my email and master password.

After I enter my credentials, THEN I get a Multifactor Authentication pop-up on the PC and the Authenticator [version 2.6.0] app prompts on my phone [Samsung Galaxy S9+ with Android 10.0]. (see screenshot) When I use the phone to enter Accept and my Authenticator PIN, then the browser extension is logged on as I would expect.

If I leave Firefox open and log out of my LP account then click the browser LP icon to log back in, I get the Use Authenticator button. When I select it, the Authenticator app on the phone pops up and log in is smooth, as I would expect.

However, when I click on the LP icon on the Firefox browser, I get (another) notice that I can activate Passwordless (see screenshot). When I accept that, I have to provide my master password again. Even though I have turned on the Passwordless feature several times, If I close Firefox and re-open it, and then click on the LP icon, it does not invoke the Authenticator. Instead, I have to repeat everything. It seems like closing Firefox does something to delete the Authenticator option saved in LP/Firefox.

In both Chrome and Edge, I have settings to delete browser history when they are closed. This does not seem to affect the Authenticator behavior. However, I have set the same settings in Firefox to delete browser history on close, but the Authenticator behavior is not as expected.

What setting in LP or Firefox can be used to have the Authenticator setting survive the browser being closed? Also, how do I avoid having to go through the Permissions prompt every time I launch Firefox and try to open the LP extension?

Thanks, Dave Hejde (970) 219-8843


Hmmmm. Firefox support is not accepting multiple image uploads. How can I get them associated with this submission?

I have tried this with the Troubleshooting option "Temporarily Disable Extensions" and the problem still occurs. Firefox 101.0.1 (64 bit) on Win10, Intel.

To reproduce:

Go to https://www.healthgrades.com/ . Search Carlene Bolen (any name?) in Tulsa, OK. Click on first result. Opens a new tab to https://www.healthgrades.com/providers/carlene-bolen-29brb. So far so good. Click on page. Hit PgDn 3 times, or scroll down quite a ways (to comments). Hit PgUp or attempt to scroll to top of page. Tab goes into infinite loop toggling between "X" and reload symbols on the NAV bar. Also page no longer renders properly and F12 debugger won't open. Firefox process for that Child tab uses 35% of processor, but doesn't show anything unusual in Firefox "Task Manager" process list. Must close both the child tab and the previous Healthgrades parent tab. Eventually the offending Firefox process exits and everything looks normal.
