The question is simple. I knew there is an update for the users with "studies" enabled. But where is the manual update for the users with "studies" disabled? I have checked the installer download page, and Help -> About. No any update for this. No any instruction for users with "studies" disabled.

I had a system crash, probably with Firefox opened.

After restarting PC and starting Firefox, most of the addons I have had lost all of their settings and were reset to default - Tampermonkey lost all the scripts I had installed, uBlock lost all settings and rules, etc. Weirdly some extensions kept portions of their settings, like TreeTabs saved tree structure despite also getting reset to default.

Additionally Firefox also got its own settings reset to default, while the tabs from my session and bookmarks were saved.

Is there any way to recover addon and Firefox settings, is there any backup of them?

Windows 7 Professional Firefox 64 bit stable, up to date

Its is running on a 10 year old slow computer, the add-on script is unresponsive because it is running on a slow computer.

I had a similar problem with "Warning: Unresponsive script" but was able to get rid of those annoying notices by setting dom.max_script_run_time to zero.

I do not want to stop the script, the add-on adds security. I just do not want to ever see one of these notices on that computer ever again. I have to deal with them dozens of times each day and only use the computer for a few hours. Each time it interrupts what I'm doing to take me to a different tab to slowly deal with the problem.

The problem isn't the add-on script being slow, its the computer being slow. And the fact that the warning gives me no way to disable it so I keep getting it time after time after time...

Thanks

I have been using firefox for years and am very happy with it. I have a Dell optiplex 7010 desktop. I am running Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS. I do not have a firewall turned on. Apparently, my desktop browser was updated to Firefox 78.0.1 (64-bit) on 7-1-2020. Since that time, I have been unable to access any websites from Firefox including mozilla.org. I am connected through WiFi. After downloading the Opera browser I have been able to access any website with no problems. I read community troubleshooting on this issue and tried various fixes including turning off IPv6. I read the community article about turning off my personal firewall. I was unaware of using any firewall so I installed Gufw Firewall 18.04.0. Running this program shows my firewall status is "OFF". I checked my AT&T modem and could not find any firewall settings that specifically mentioned Firefox. I would like to continue using Firefox since I use it on my phone and laptop also use it.

My laptop is a Dell Vostro 1520 running Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS 64 bit. It also accesses the internet through the same WiFi. It currently has no problems loading web sites with Firefox version 78.0.1

Please help.

I have two Windows 10 PC with Firefox.

Since several weeks in forms like gmail compose or facebook messenger or hotmail both sujbect and message, I cannot type the letter q in lowercase.

Fine typing Q but no q

I tried to find any solution to this but no results. I found a similar topic here with letter Q instead. I followed the steps but no luck as well. (Cannot type letter Q (weird bug!))

The issue is simple, typing q doesn't type anything. I can paste the Q from clipboard and works fine (this how I survived)

I have Spanish (Mexico) language and Latin American keyboard by default. Tried with the standard English (US) and US international keyboard with the same behavior .

Any help is appreciated.

I recently migrated from Chrome to Firefox, and have been facing problems during Google sign-in.

I have two Google accounts, A & B, and I use either one to register on most websites.

After migrating to Firefox, I'm facing a problem whenever I try logging into a site using my Google ID.

Here's what happens:

1. I click on the "Login with Google" button. 2. Since I have already signed in to Google using both accounts, I see both A and B in the Account Picker page. 3. I choose A. 4. The page changes to a loading screen, where I get a "One moment please..." message.

After this, the loading circle keeps rotating, but nothing happens.

I think it has something to do with content blocking, but since I'm quite new to Firefox, I'm not sure how to fix this.

I'd really appreciate any help.

Thanks in advance!

Current situation: My Firefox brower search default is Google. But it has settled into a pattern of being is hijacked to a site named primeinfospot.com. Initially, the search redirection was to several different sites, but now it is just one site. This might be a result of my attempts to remove the hijacker. Chrome and Safari browsers are not hijacked.

Cause: Attempting to get a better corded connection between my Galaxy and MacBook, I downloaded a file named Android.zip from http://d-h.st/nl5l#!/ This included an install of ADB and Fastbooks. This led to an attempted auto-download of Flash, which I rejected. My browser search then was hijacked first to a number of different sites: readysoft, ikolag, ncontentdelivery, everydayconsumers, primeinfospot, search-switch.

Attempts to remove: Looked through plug-ins and extensions in Firefox, but couldn't find anything that looked like the hijacker. Uninstalled/reinstalled Firefox. Scanned with Malwarebytes (report= clear), Went to Mac hard drive > Applications > Library and uninstalled any files installed on Ocotber 24th (when the problem started).

So I've been using firefox for a while now, and I really like it, but in the past few months it has suddenly decided that my browser is out of date (not the case, I'm running the latest update) and unsupported, even though it says firefox is supported. This happens on a lot of different sites. I tried resetting my useragent and clearing my cache and cookies, but nothing seems to have happened. I still get the bug. I submitted to webcompat too.

Please help, its super irritating to deal with, and I don't want to have to switch browser.
