Hey! Weird problem:

I could not login via google, facebook or similar accounts on websites that support it. So I tried disabling all extensions and restarted FF without any luck. I then tried Safe Mode and it gets the job done but when I reset/refresh FF and get the extensions I wanted back it does not work again even if they are all disabled!

any insight on that? is there like a hidden extension that blocks it? I'm on the latest FF for Mac (el cap)! thanks, your input would be highly appreciated!

I do like firefox since its birth! Now I'm upset with it, cause several times a year some bookmark folders simply vanish, mainly after updates, but not only! I'm an attentive fellow, It's not due to bad manips, it's just that the bookmark managing system isn't stable nor well encapsulated. My bookmarks are 24 megas, super well organized, they're my goldmine! Several people reported that issue and no one at Mozilla listens.

Next time I'll switch to Chrome, even if their bookmark manager is less handy...

I used to have no problems using the 'ask to activate' option to access Flash content. However Firefox 46.0 seems to ignore this default preference and to load with Shockwave Flash disabled as a default. Trying to enable it again is extremely hit and miss (sometimes possible, sometimes not). My Flash version is up to date and I have tested it with a variety of sites that were problem-free using previous version of Firefox.

That's it.

I used an ad blocker in the distant past. Maybe somehow it was not fully uninstalled? Sadly, I have no idea which ad blocker I used.

Hi guys,

I have a problem similar to the one described in this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1113367

Last December, Firefox updated automatically and when it opened after the reboot, all my profile (I have six profiles) information was gone. I was about to get a new computer and was short on time, so I figured I wouldn't sweat it until I installed the browser on the new one, since I saw I still had the 2h4hgh56.Profilename folders in the Profiles folder.

In the Profile folder on the new computer, there are two folders named default. The only one opening is the one created when the browser reinstalled. The others don't show up in the profile manager.

Fast forward to today (yes, this is how long it's taken me to get around to dealing with this). I installed FF on the new computer and copied/pasted the profile folders from my old computer into the new Profile folder. No luck - what happens is that the new 'default' folder is created in the Profile folder - just like on the old computer, the old profiles just don't show up in the Profile manager.

I've read all the threads on this and similar issues I can find, and I guess what happened in the old automatic update is that the current profiles.ini file was corrupted or disappeared somehow. In the thread mentioned above, it is suggested that the .ini file is the only way to access the profile folders through the browser/profile manager.

There's no system restore point left that I can go back to at this point, so what I'm wondering now is whether or not there is ANY way to extract the MASSIVE amounts of bookmark data from my six profile folders WITHOUT the .ini file that disappeared last December. All I want are the bookmarks.

Many thanks!

Downloading the latest version of Firefox on Windows 10 (Surface Book) made my internet speed take a nosedive. Didn't matter what wifi I was on, pages would hang and never load. Or it would take a refresh to make them load (maybe a few refreshes).

Chrome is working effortlessly and reliably. Firefox will work for a few minutes and then pages will hang again.

I downgraded back to the previous version but this is still happening.

It used to be when I wanted to bookmark a site, I would click on the bookmark pull-down, choose "bookmark this page", and a context menu would appear to ask me where I wanted to place the bookmark. Now that option is gone. I have a LOT of bookmark folders. Am I going to have to hunt down every bookmark after I make it, in order to place it in its folder? This is a WASTE OF TIME. Why are we not given the option to indicating where we want them to go BEFORE they're made anymore?

Is there something I'm not seeing here? Is there a trick to this? Does anyone understand the reason behind this change? Because I don't see anything reasonable in taking away a simple functionality and forcing the user to spend time doing what the browser should have done in the first place.

Help?

Seeing my browser hsitory iin a new tab is a problem. The following settings do not resolve it:

1) Setting Options:Privacy:History to Never Remember History 2) At Options:Advanced:Network clicking both Clear Now buttons 3) In about:config setting browser.newtabpage.enabled to false

What is disconcerting is that all of these have been proposed in other posts as accepted answers, and they do seem to have an immediate effect. However, performing the third "fix" on on my list above (after also doing the others, which had no effect on the new tab) only seems to work until I revert it back to TRUE. Then the history which supposedly is not being saved shows up again. This happens even when I restart the browser and then revert back to true.

The worst part about this is that we are led to believed that the browser history is not there, yet it really is there. Apparently a bug (mentioned in another post with respect to version 44) has revealed that this hidden history exists and, if not for this bug, the average user would not be aware that there is a hidden history that "somebody" might easily find.

I exed out of my session by mistake, earlier in the day, and it had many, many saved tabs that I need. Tried the process of going into the Profiles folder and locating the.BAK file and renaming, but there's nothing there to work with that I can see. Then I right-click on files, go into Properties, and check their Previous Version(s), and, again, nothing. Help would be appreciated. It was just a simple mistake and yet Firefox can not restore it?

Greetings,

I'm at the ancestry.ca website. I'm getting an error message saying "It looks like you have local storage disabled. While you'll still be able to use the site, you may notice that pages load more slowly." Can DOM Storage be turned on in the Options menu? Or can it only be done in the about:config page?
