I wanted to report that an important Bookmark folder disappeared again! I had reported it before and had to start a new Question to report it again. I was able to to find it again in an Exported Bookmarks file but it wastes my times and adds to my stress level. I certainly cannot explain why it has happened.

So, I accidentally clicked a link that takes me to a site I have never logged into. Firefox prompts me with 3 userids. One is more or less a throwaway, but two are for sites I want to be secure.

I have disabled the form history in options. I have selected each item and tried either delete or shift-delete. None of these options work.

The site continues to present me with 3 userid options.

I hope this is not a major security threat since I am the only user on this computer and the site is one I have never visited, but it worries me nonetheless that I cannot remove the Firefox suggestions.

Hello, I update Wordpress pages on downtownlanguages.org. The past couple of days, the site's top menu bar covers up the page headings on all the pages and does not scroll with the rest of the page. I don't know if this is a Firefox problem or a Wordpress problem. The pages display correctly in MS Edge and on my iPad. To my knowledge, I've done nothing in WordPress to cause this to happen. I have refreshed Firefox and cleared startup cache but it did not resolve the problem. Please help. Thank you! See https://downtownlanguage.org/donate for an example.

OS: Windows 10-64 Home or Windows 10-64 Pro Version 20H2 (OS Build 19042.685) with all current updates Firefox: 84.0.2 (64-bit)


For about a week now a few websites are taking a long time to load on my 4 PCs (examples: ebay.com, walmart.com, pch.com). If I click the link on the search page it takes almost 30 sec to load, right click and open in a new tab same time, and open a new tab and type or paste address the same amount of time. Most other website open almost immediately.

The issue does not resolve in safe-mode or if I manually disable add-ons. I'm using the default theme.

All websites load without issue on Chrome and Edge.

Hi all,


I've got an offline 2008R2 workstation with Firefox 65.0.2 installed, just recently it will only display a blank page. Clicking options does nothing as does navigating to about:config, it just sits on the blank page and doesn't react.

I've tried to reinstall the current version, the latest stable and the latest ESR with no change. I made sure to delete the following each time: C:\Program Files (x86)\*mozilla* C:\Program Files\*mozilla* C:\ProgramData\Mozilla C:\Users\Me\AppData\*\Mozilla Computer\HKLM\SOFTWARE\*mozilla*

Nobody knows of any recent changes to the workstation I've turned off AV Windows logs don't show anything Starting FF in safe mode does the exact same thing

Additionally I'm not allowed to take any screenshots or anything off it. :(

I highly appreciate any advice anyone has!

When Print Preview is selected, the Bookmarks are always scrolled to the top of the listing. This is very inconvenient when you want to go back to where you were when you have thousands of Bookmarks. I would like to have Firefox fixed so it doesn't do this.

I'm using Outlook in my iMac Pro running Big Sur 11.1, and when I click a link in an email, two FF windows open, one with my default homepage and the other from the link.

This only happens when FF isn't already open.

I've adjusted the settings to no avail, and then reset FF but the problem remains.

It doesn't do this with other browsers when set as the default, just FF.

I see other posts relating to this issue, but cannot find the solution - if there is one?

Thank you.

Hi! More than a month ago, I realised that my firefox nightly version is few months old. It couldn't update itself, everytime I tried to use update function, after restarting browser it didn't udpate and it didn't even restart, just close itself. So I downloaded latest version from mozilla site to update. But now I remembered that moment and checked what version I have. Guess what, it's that version I downloaded back then. And I can't update it still. I don't know what the error is, but I know what it's connected to it. Every time I open firefox I have to open it double. First opening does literally nothing, and I have to open it 2nd time to open it.

Long time Firefox user here - been on from the start (about 2005), and don't want to switch because I love some features like the Panorama View extension, Context Search extension etc, and it's always been a great browser.

Recently though (not sure if it's just recently, or I've only just noticed), it's so slow. I tried a brand new profile, no extensions, no settings changes, and it's the same. Example loading times:

bbc.co.uk/news Firefox: 14s Edge: 2s chess.com Firefox: 19s Edge: 4s chess.com play vs computer Firefox 38s Edge 2s

https://youtu.be/er9jBysL0vEFirefox vs Edge (YouTube)

So it's not my profile settings or extensions.

BUT, I tried it on a different user profile on the same computer (Switch User from the Windows Start menu), and it's fast!

Why is this, and what do I need to do on my user account to speed Firefox up (keeping my same Firefox profile)?

Thanks in advance.

I have always been able to use Firefox as the default browser when launching hyperlinks from MS Office products. Last week, i received notice that FLASH is no longer supported and should be removed.

I did this.

Now - when i have a hyperlink in ANY MS product - it does not launch. When i change default browser to MS Edge - they work

How do i get this back to working in Firefox

I am trying to implement a policies.json file in 32-bit Firefox 78.6.1 ESR on Windows 10 Pro 64-bit. With Firefox not running, I have created a distribution folder as follows:

C:\Program Files(x86)\Mozilla Firefox\distribution

The folder contains a policies.json file with the following script:

{

 "policies": {
 "DisableAppUpdate": true
 }

}

There are no Registry settings concerning this on my computer. Although the computer is joined to a domain, there are no Firefox GPOs in place.

When I run Firefox I do not get any error messages. about:support indicates that the Enterprise policies are active. about:policies only lists a certificate policy; DisableAppUpdate does not appear there. in the Options menu I see "Your browser is being managed by your organization" at the top, but in the Firefox Updates section I still have the two items:

Automatically install updates (recommended) Check for updates but let you choose to install them

The second option is checked.

After creating the policies.json file I expected to see nothing in the Firefox Updates section except a message stating updates have been disabled, and I expected to see DisableAppUpdates listed in about:policies.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks.

In the age of COVID and a switch to more remote work the dependency on online meetings has increased. The company I work for uses Google Apps for Business and has been using Google Meet for a long time, and I've never had any problems with it not working. Recently though, when I join a meeting using Firefox, nobody can hear me and it appears Firefox is not able to access my microphone. Here's what I've done to test:

1. Reviewed Windows 10 settings to make sure microphone input slider is up. 2. Checked other browsers, running Google Meet using Chrome works fine. (Note: everything was working before and I attempted to use Chrome to try out changing backgrounds. It seems like this is when my problems with Firefox began) 3. I've tested my microphone using https://www.onlinemictest.com/ initially it didn't appear to work, but if I tap on my laptop screen near the microphone I see lines showing activity, but it won't pick up voice. Using this same tool in Chrome works as expected. 4. I tested using Private Mode - Same results. 5. I tried clearing the startup cache - same results. 6. I tried using Safe Mode - same results. 7. Refreshed Firefox (using Troubleshooting Information screen (Refresh Firefox...)

I'm at the end of my rope trying to figure out what's going on, and why it only appears to be Firefox that's having a problem. Other apps like Zoom, and recording video using just the webcam on the computer also works fine.

Any help in getting this figured out would be appreciated. I try not to use Chrome if I don't have to, but switching to Chrome so I can join web meetings is a real pain.
