Google search no longer works on Firefox. Other browsers have no problems. Changing the default search engine on Firefox works (eg Bing), BUT. It can now find Google Maps, but Google Maps cannot find a location, because it uses a Google search. I tried the fix in about:config, but it had no effect.

I've read all the suggestions but can't get Firefox Sync to transfer the open tabs from my old PC to my new one. I'm signed in on both to the same account, both are on my LAN with a wired ethernet connection, and I've checked every box in the "what to sync" field. When I click "Sync Now" the icon spins for a few seconds like it's doing something but the tabs from the old machine do not appear on the new one as I expected them to. Nor can I get them by closing and doing a Restore Session.

This seems pretty straightforward and how most users would expect it to work - am I missing something? If not, why isn't it working?

I have a System 76 laptop running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. The LTS (Long Term Support) ended years ago with Firefox 66. All of that works fine still. My problem is: 1. The world is telling me to upgrade my browser. 2. Mozilla tells me "Note: If you use your Linux distribution's packaged version of Firefox, you will need to wait for an updated package to be released to its package repository. This article only applies if you installed Firefox manually (without using your distribution's package manager)." 3. There will never be an updated package because LTS has ended. 4. IS THERE A WAY TO MANUALLY INSTALL A NEWER BROWSER LIKE FIREFOX 123?

I am having an issue where youtube videos played at higher quality stutter when put to fullscreen. Up till about 720p60 works fine, at 1080p60 and above the framerate becomes unstable.

Things I have tried: - I have tried going into media.media-capabilities.enabled and changing it from false to true - I have set network.buffer.cache.size to 262144 - I have disabled all my plugins - I have tried changing my user agent to windows/chrome

My current setup: Firefox 122.0, Macbook pro Sonoma 14.1, Apple M1 Pro chip

Curiously, if I make a new firefox profile and play a video there, there is no stutter. Does anyone have ideas on how I can fix my current profile?

My Firefox Browser on (Windows 11) updated on 23rd March 2024. Now my History and Bookmarks have been deleted (but not cookies for some reason). yes, it is my correct profile as I checked the dates and also double checked it against a backup I made 2 weeks ago.

Have included an image of my 'more troubleshooting information' details - I'm sure this is supposed to have more data on the page?

If there is no way to recover my hisotry and bookmarks, I see there in my profile folder is a 'bookmarksbackup' folder which contains .jsonlz4 files, one of which was saved on the 21st March 2024. I know book marks are .json files, can anyone tell me how to turn a .jsonlz4 file to a .json?

[Oh, I pressed to add here my 'troubleshooting information' as directed by this forum page and it said it couldn't automatically do it, and when I pressed 'manual', it opened that over this page and so when I pressed 'back' it had naturally deleted this post so I've had to retype everything from memory, thanks so much Mozilla for that. How about a warning that this will happen?]

Hi, Folks. When I open "manage bookmarks" (Library), why does it always open at "other bookmarks"? This is at the very bottom of the alphabetical list (and empty) so I always have to scroll back up to the top. I've got a lot of bookmarks, so this is extremely irritating. How do I change this? I've searched for an answer. The only likely solutions suggest removing the "other bookmarks" folder, but the description of how to do that doesn't work. Nowhere can I find a "remove other bookmarks" option. And the delete option is greyed out.

I don't necessarily need to hide or remove it, as long as I can get the bookmarks manager/Library to open at the top, ie. "Bookmarks Menu".

Cheers, Ian

I loaded the postcode lottery website but it's completely blurred. I last checked the same website last month, and it worked fine. I have cleared the cookies from Firefox, but the result is the same. It appears clear for a moment, then blurs. No pop-ups asking to accept cookies. It works fine using Chrome. Any idea why Firefox won't display it properly? It loads the National Lottery website, so it's not about gambling sites I guess.

I see where other people have posed this question but the procedure offered is not available to me.

I am using Firefox (Flatpak) version 121.0 on an Ubuntu 22.04 laptop.

On installing a new extension I should either see the extension's icon on my toolbar or else have a clear means of adding it. I have neither.

Clicking on the jigsaw icon in the toolbar, I get migrated to the about:addons page. On clicking the Extensions tab, I get the screen listing all installed extensions. Each extension has a ... icon beside it. But when I click on this, there is no "Pin To Toolbar" option.

What is wrong here ?

Whenever I attempt to watch something on any streaming service, I get an error message from the streaming service and a note from Firefox saying "The WidevineCdm plugin has crashed." I have tried to solve this problem a number of ways, but have unable to find a solution.

My best guess is the problem is due to the most recent WidevineCdm update, as in the plugins settings the most recent update for the plugin was on 10/21/23, which is shortly before I first noticed the problem. I did test out various streaming platforms on other computer browsers (Chrome and Microsoft Edge) — they gave the same website errors as I got on Firefox, but those browsers did not indicate the cause or suggest which plugin failed. I additionally tested out desktop apps for some of the streaming platforms; they work fine without any issues, but unfortunately the main streaming platform I use doesn't have a desktop app and only works in browser.

My computer is a Lenovo Yoga 9i, it's running Windows 11, and everything is up-to-date.

The methods I have tried to fix this issue with, to no avail: - submitted crash reports - toggling the "play DRM restricted content" options in Firefox, and toggling whether or not the WidevineCdm was activated, closing the browser between each toggle of options - clearing Firefox's cache - running Firefox in troubleshooting mode to make sure it wasn't a different extension interfering with it - tried running Firefox in compatibility mode - tried to find support from the people who made WidevineCdm, but apparently they don't do end-user support - deleting the WidevineCdm manually from the program files for Firefox and Chrome (since Firefox says the plugin is from Google), and then reinstalling it via the chrome components page. This briefly lead to the message on the plugin page that WidevinceCdm would "begin installing shortly." It seemed frozen like that for a good while, but then I tried clicking the "check for updates" and that message disappeared, and it went back to crashing when I tried using a streaming service. - uninstalling both Chrome and Firefox, restarting the computer, then reinstalling both browsers

As far as I can tell, the plugin comes automatically installed in the browser, and there isn't an alternate plugin for decrypting DRM-restricted content. If there's a way to set the WidevineCdm to a previous version before the update that's crashing it, I haven't found it, but I am no expert in computers or coding, and my guess about it being caused by the recent update could be wrong too.

I'm at my wit's end here, any help fixing this problem is greatly appreciated.

Firefox displays text on the .xml page as html code instead of rendering is as normal text. The layout and images on the page look as they should.

There is nothing wrong with the page, as it is rendered perfectly in Chrome.

In addition, this page doesn't display at all on the phone. When I click on the link it asks me to download it and then asks me which app I want to open it with - instead of simply rendering the page.

I have seen some old threads on this topic, it looks like this issue haven't been resolved for few years.

My question is not just about fixing it in my browser but at the root cause. This page is the RSS feed of my podcast which many people want to access and many use Firefox as their browser. Unless I tell everyone to use Chrome instead.

Can someone help? thanks.

I frequently open new tabs by right-clicking the current tab and choosing "New Tab" from the context menu. Naturally, I want to start typing a URL or search term.

But the focus/cursor/caret is nowhere and typing does nothing. I have to click on the address bar, and then I can type.

I'm not using New Tab Override and I have Firefox's new tab set to a blank page.

I tried disabling all my add-ons, but I still had the problem.

I tried setting new tab to the Firefox home page and for a short while I got a cursor in the address bar. But the problem returned after a few hours

Any clues on what might be wrong? Firefox version 120.0.1 (64-bit) on MacOS Ventura 13.5.1. Thanks!

(A similar problem is described here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1420220 -- but in my case this is not a container tab.)

I just downloaded the new Firefox and replaced the old application. All my bookmarks are gone. When I go to Manage and Restore, it tells me to choose a file but I don't seem to have the file on my computer. Under library>application support there is no Firefox folder. There is a Mozilla folder, but the only thing in it is the "extensions" folder with one file. I have a backup of my full computer on a hard drive from before the download, but I can't seem to find a file there either. I don't think I ever specifically asked my computer to save the Bookmarks. Does it auto save in the application? Is there a way to restore the prior version of Firefox on my computer?
