I found another thread on that with a solution:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1280633

However that solution doesn't work for me. Did something change?

I would ask in that thread but it's closed (pretty ridiculous) so here's a new thread to add to the clutter.

I have a portable installation of Firefox. Might that be the problem?

I am located in an area wherre mobiles cannot be used because there is no signal. I have been trying to send sync to a USB memory stick but Firefox will not allow me to do this. Firefox insists that sync can only be sent to mobile devices. I am using Firefox on a desktop with Windows 10.

When more than one tab is open, to close ALL tabs by clicking the "X" in the far upper right, a pop-up alert warns and asks if the closure is intentional. A constant annoyance is when I mistakenly close the WRONG tab when multiple tabs are open. Why is there no similar alert to confirm my choice to close a single tab? It would save me time and frustration.

I use Firefox Focus for android, but I want to make Qwant.com my default browser instead of Google. I go to settings, change default browser and it asks for the name of the search engine I want to use, then the string for it. I have no idea what the string is supposed to be. It says to type it like the example, so I do, but it says "not found". Does anyone know how to do this?

Hello. I have purchased a new computer and cannot sync my Firefox account with it. The old computer is not working and I had forgotten my Firefox password, so I reset it through the "reset your password" email firefox sent me. After logging in , there is no history of bookmarks, passwords, or add-ons with my account. Does anyone know how i can recover this data?

To whom it may concern

I am testing the autoupdate on one of my vm`s and I cannot configure what we need.

Goal: - We would like to update firefox esr yearly with a package through sccm. - After installation or after first startup, firefox should imediately update to newest version - From then, firefox esr should installed newest version as soon as available and check daily for a new version


My Config:

// Enable updater lockPref("app.update.enabled", true); lockPref("app.update.auto", true); lockPref("app.update.mode", 0); lockPref("app.update.service.enabled", true); lockPref("app.update.silent", true); lockPref("app.update.timerFirstInterval", 60); lockPref("app.update.promptWaitTime", 60); lockPref("app.update.download.backgroundinterval", 0); lockPref("app.update.doorhanger", false); lockPref("app.update.disable_button.showUpdateHistory", false);


The config file was implemented. I could see the changes in about:config, but if I today distribute version 78.7.1 with the above config file, firefox esr does not automatically update to the newest version 78.8.0. Only if I open the settings or the help about.

What am I missing? How can I achieve that firefox will update silently(without user intervention) imediately to newest version after install and update regularly to newest version?

Every 2 to 3 days sometimes longer, Firefox will randomly reset itself and close out all windows and tabs to a single window and different search engine. Restore last session is never available when this happens even though I have that selected and checked and it does work when I manually close out windows and tabs myself so i know that preference is selected. My search engine preferences are always reset and have to restore defaults as well. Mac os Big Sur 11.2

Thanks to anyone who can help me solve this sudden mystery. Long time user of firefox on macbook pro and mac towers.

My Firefox will not open no matter what I try because it continuously tells me, "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible."

This error started happening because my Firefox originally wasn't saving the add-ons that I was trying to add. If I closed my browser and opened another one it would be gone. I tried refreshing the browser but that didn't help. I eventually tried reinstalling to see if that would fix the issue and then this error popped up and now I cannot stop it.

I tried reinstalling. I tried deleting the profile out of appdata, etc in hopes it would make a fresh one. I tried making a new profile by running it without opening the browser only to be given an error that doesn't save it. I'm at a loss on how to get my Firefox working again. It is my favorite browser and this is the first time I've ever really had a severe problem with it. Help!

I have all the correct POP3 and SMTP settings, all the correct passwords and we have tried this multiple times, carefully entering everything so as to avoid typos, but each time, it says that it finds the account, but then gives an error message that it can't find the server. Our ISP will not help with Thunderbird at all.

Firefox will not stay logged in to some accounts online such as youtube where I will have to hit "log in" repeatedly and each time it opens the next page it's a crapshoot if it will show up as if I was logged in or not and if I click to something else it will log me out again. even when it shows a username like it's logged in, the customizable tool bars will be seen as if I'm not. This goes beyond youtube as even in areas where I'm trying to log in for business it does the same thing to the point it is impossible to use.

This started a while back but and I've just dealt with the problem because I couldn't find a fix. I've tried clearing the history/cookies/caches, nothing changed. I uninstalled and reinstalled firefox but it persists. No changes I've made with the settings has done anything.

I know that flag emojis are basically not rendered on Windows platforms. A two-letter-combination is shown instead (e.g. DE for Germany), which is a known issue. Since a few months however, Firefox started to show flag emojis. I assumed that Firefox itself did show the flag emoji independently from Windows (as opposed to Chrome, which never did show flag emojis on Windows). Since a few days however, Firefox stopped showing flag emojis and shows the two-letter-combination again.

Why does Firefox not show flag emojis anymore?

Does anyone have experience with this phenomenon:

When you click on a torrent link on a page opened in Firefox 83 (and above), the first window pops up, but the second one (in which uTorrent would come) is no longer. Nothing happens. Specifically, the entry is C: \ ProgramData \ Microsoft \ Windows \ WER \ ReportArchive \ AppCrash_uTorrent.exe....

If I revert to Firefox 82 or 78.6esr, the error will not occur.

If I choose not to download uTorrent but to download the torrent file, it works fine with all versions of Firefox.
