I just upgraded to Firefox 77, x64, Windows 10 2004.

Firefox 76 already broke LockWise - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1287008

Now Firefox 77 breaks 99% of all websites. (See attached screenshot.) www.example.com www.google.com www.wikipedia.org etc

Somehow, support.mozilla.org works, UNTIL I try to log in.

I've tried incognito mode, safe mode, etc. When I change charset of the page, the text displays differently, but it's still a useless mishmash.

--- BUT --- when I open developer tools, click the HTML request and click the Response tab, the HTML renders correctly there.

I've been using Firefox for years most recently on a Windows machine but I've just switched back to a Mac. I'm having issues with bookmarks and I'm doing what I've always done but now am having a couple issues so I don't know if it is due to switching systems or if I have an issue.

In any case... I like my bookmarks in the toolbar so that is where I aim to put them. I exported my bookmarks from my PC, imported the file and thought I was fine but now I see that not all of the bookmarks are there in the toolbar, most are but not all. Then when I check the recently bookmarked, the missing ones are listed among the others but do not appear where I can find them.

Then I exported from my work PC to a file as before, imported the file and can not find any of them anywhere, keep trying and can't find them.

And now while on a page I click the blue star as I always have, have it pointed to the toolbar folder, click done, check the toolbar and not there. Keep trying and during the process I see an option to remove 3 bookmarks next to option DONE, so I suspect it is something I'm not understanding but on my PC I've never had issues with this.

Hello.

A couple of days ago, I was having problems with Firefox crashing when I opened it--no window would open at all. Prior to that I was having problems for a few hours with Firefox being extremely slow and getting stuck. This is with a MacBook Air with Catalina installed.

I did what I thought was clean reinstall and restored by profile from a backup. I had to try a couple of different times to get it to work. I did wind up losing my previous session.

Things seem to be working fine, but in the Firefox Windows menu it shows a window I can't access, close, etc. The tab open in the window has the title "Firefox protects your privacy automatically." I tried the "Show All Windows" command and only the other window "Google" can be seen. See the two screenshots.

I tried restarting Firefox in Safe Mode, restarting my computer, etc. and that has not helped.

During the reinstallation, I think I remember briefly seeing a different window with a tab from Firefox with this name, but I might be incorrect.

Hi I am looking for a way to disable the Firefox Welcome Page on first run, via script, or registry or config file, I have it coming up on over 1000 Windows 10 pc's running Firefox 64 bit 78.02

I have tried many things and nothing I have done seems to suppress the welcome page.

I tried setting all to blank and none have worked

startup.homepage_welcome_url

startup.homepage_welcome_url.additional

startup.homepage_override_url

Also I have tried in the Policies.json file the following. The welcome page still comes up.

{

   "policies": {

Hi I support young people ( aged 7-11) with Dyslexia. they all use Firefox to log in to their lessons. It automatically recognises them and it is a system they are familiar with. All of the lap tops up grade to the latest system automatically. One of them does not work on the new version. The students get a message which says version 78.0.2 is not compatible with 78.0.1 It is a Windows system. This is really distressing for the students using this lap top. They blame themselves for the problems and itis having an affect on their confidence. Can I revert it back to the older version ? and if so how? I really would appreciate some help as my wee students are upset and i don't know how to help.

Well, I used to use the mozilla repo, encountered the issue, switched to the openSUSE repo (slightly older builds) where all worked and now the issue is back...

After updating all packages, Firefox no longer launches and instead I get the little Window shown in the attached screenshot.

I have zero idea why and how - though it does seem like someone didn't do their testing properly...

According to YaST2 this is Firefox 78.0.2-1.1-x86_64

The installed packages for Firefox are (all from "vendor OpenSUSE") MozillaFirefox MozillaFirefox-branding-upstream MozillaFirefox-translations-common

There is also the kmozillahelper for the Plasma Desktop. - zypper ref and zypper dup confirm that the system is up to date.

The latest is I can't search from the search bar with a new tab. This is after doing a migration. I erased Firefox and reinstalled the app and all of my data was still there. I reopened the session as if I had just closed a session and I was logged into gmail. So clearly Mozilla's instructions on deleting the app on MAC doesn't work. Recycle bin. How do you literally delete the app?

Hoping deletion will solve the issue of not being able to hit enter in the search bar to perform a google search, or click the arrow. Nothing works.

Further, I'm logged into this browser, yet when the tabs disappear I can't reaccess them. What's the point of logging into a browser if it doesn't remember the tabs?

Dear Colleague,

  I am on a Surface Pro 3 running Windows 10 64-bit.     I have been running Firefox for 15 years without a problem. So,  I saw that there was an upgrade to Firefox, and I downloaded it and started installing.    I have completed this process many times in the past.
  When I started running the upgrade, I received the following error,  XUI Runner window that says  "Error Platform version '78.0.2' is not compatible with minVersion>=78.0.1 maxVersion <=78.0.1.  I checked the wiki and the bug list but did not see any bugs.    
  I have not uninstalled and reinstalled yet because I do not want to lose my bookmarks, history, etc. if I can help it.

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.

Every time I download a new release of Firefox (win64 german), I check the downloaded file at virustotal and check the hashes published under http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/<Version>, e.g. http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/78.0.1/SHA256SUMS Up until release 77.0 the hashes matched but for 77.0.1 and also the current release 78.0.1 the hashes do not match, neither SHA256 nor SHA512. For "win64/de/Firefox Setup 78.0.1.exe" the SHA256 hash should be 56cff68e3f0cb76a6404d675f7e1bacc40ebaba7bbb5cadcb4950378656ab0a6 but the calculated hash is 8e69755f257aba44b6bbe5079e17f3bff8b62ddc27de9e1c479686e9ad871dfb When checking at virustotal, the file is recognized as scanned before and the displayed hash is the one I calculated, so at least my downloaded file is equal to the file other persons downloaded. Could it be that since v77.0.1 the published hashes are incorrect?

A recent up date to Zonealarm flagged a part (might have even been the executeable) of Firefox as having some malware, and automatically quarantined it, with the consequence that was unable to use it. It wouldn't even open. Consequently, I had to clean the remainder out and reinstall FF and set it up again to my liking. Since then, Email Link is not working properly. In fact it runs wild and is difficult to stop. In the Options>>Application I have mailto set to Use Microsoft Outlook just as it was before the reinstall which worked correctly. Now what happens is it gets itself into a never-ending reiteration or opening a new tab in FF, which then does something to open a new iteration of Outlook with the legend Navigation to the webpage was cancelled as shown in the attached screenshot. This somehow manages to open another new tab in FF and so on and so forth, until I manage to stop it. Below is the address I was testing with in a separate FF instance, and was a link to Google which is normally my default New Tab page (don't judge!) mailto:?body=https%3a%2f%2fwww.google.co.nz%2f&subject=google I don't recognise much of the items on the menu bar, and if I click on the drop down menu where the above address appears, all it comes up with is Add or Remove buttons. I am rather at a loss of where to go with this. The version of Office that I am using is Office 2003 as it is the last without the damned ribbon, which I hate. I hope someone can come up with a solution for this, so thanks in advance.

I'm running Windows 10. Firefox was being very laggy so I did a Firefox refresh but that didn't solve the laggy problem so I did a Windows 10 Refresh.

After the Refresh I reinstalled the latest version of Firefox and copied the old profile folder (which was also on the latest Firefox version) to the new profile folder. The first start worked fine but if I restart Firefox I get a blank grey window with the words "Window ID Main Window". If I do a safe mode start of Firefox it works fine but I don't have access to my extensions.

What can I do to check?
