Firefox refused my written password and I needed to reset it. Now I have no bookmarks, add-ons, logins, etc.

I'm very disappointed it would do this. I've donated to the Firefox project in the past.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

For the last week or so, I've been having an issue with media not playing properly on websites. Specifically, when I read webpages which have embedded Twitter images or videos, I see the message "The Media Could Not Be Played" where a screenshot of the media used to appear. There is a blue "Reload" button, and when I click it, I can briefly see the screenshot for a split second before "The Media Could Not Be Played" re-appears.

With YouTube videos, they fail to play and I get the message "An error occurred. Please try again later". This happens with both embedded videos on webpages, and directly on the YouTube website itself.

All of this media works properly when I open the same pages in another browser like Chrome. I would prefer not to switch browsers. Is there a way to fix this error?

I restarted Firefox after a reboot and had received the new update (70). I previously had opened tabs (I work a LOT with opened tabs). All of them were now gone. No option to recover previous sessions was under settings. Also, none of my add-ons were present. Is this intended behaviour? Also, it seems to suggest I had to create a FF login to 'sync' things up? With what? I don't need my phone and my PC sync'd. I don't need my work and my home PC sync'd. It's fine that this was a feature previously but please tell me this isn't being thrust upon us because someone thinks that's "what everyone wants"?

I'm a developer and always have multiple Firefox profiles running simultaneously from the same program/install directory. This generally works very well.

The one issue I've struggled with is that since the removal of the "never check for updates" preference, the update behaviour of Firefox causes problems with multiple profiles. I have it set to prompt for updates, and I install them immediately from my "main" profile, but the "newer release is available" window keeps popping up in the other running profiles.

This is mostly just annoying. However, if I accidentally accept the update in one of the other profiles, it then tries to update overtop of the already-updated Firefox and errors out. I've had to reinstall from a full download because of this several times, which is a bigger problem.

I've looked for ways to disable the check-for-updates behaviour in my secondary profiles, but this doesn't seem possible. The only way to disable updates/checks for updates as I understand it is the enterprise policy method; however, this disables updates for all profiles using the same program/install directory. Obviously I like to keep up to date, so this is no good.

I don't want to have to have a seprate program/install dir for each profile -- then I would just have to update them all separately anyway.

Is there a way to have Firefox check for updates automatically, but only in my one main profile?

Thanks,

Charles

When I click on a link in any external application, FF will open a new window with an empty tab. Copy-pasting the link works.

I tried:

  • Safe Mode
  • Clean Profile

... to no result.

I am starting Firefox using a launcher script (Apple Script editor) which just does this: do shell script "nohup /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin -P -no-remote >/dev/null 2>&1 &"

It always worked, and it also works when I switch to Chrome or Safari. It's just firefox which does not any more.

Any help here?

I downloaded a malicious add-ons extension called "YouTube to MP3 Convert Button" by "Firefox user 6248547". All it did was open a video conversion website, which worked for the first video I tried (with alot of popups) but the second video I tried, it redirected me to a fake Firefox update page. As soon as I tried to cancel it, a login popup kept appearing and all my open tabs immediately went haywire trying to do some kind of redirect, and I it would not let me click on anything. I quickly ended the process to force close the browser, restarted Firefox and cleared my cache and uninstalled the extension. I am concerned about what kind of malware this may have installed on my machine. I reported this user over a month ago, but it is still available on the add-on page, and other people also commented about it having malware. Any suggestions?

Ja, Firefox Updates ärgern mich. Ich benutze seit vielen Jahren Firefox. Angefangen habe ich mit Version 4 oder 5, damals wurde noch mit Anpassbarkeit geworben. Anfangs war es noch möglich, durch einen Mausklick zu bestimmen, ob die Tabs oben oder unten sind, dann kam eine neue Firefox Version. Ich habe mir eine UserChrome.css gemacht, die gut funktioniert hat, dann kam Firefox 57? und die Anpassbarkeit war Geschichte. Wer mit mehreren Tabs arbeitet und dafür sind die Tabs doch da, muss die Maus mehr bewegen und es ist unübersichtlich. Wäre es nicht sinnvoll, dass was ich am häufigsten benutze, in der Nähe der Arbeitsfläche zu haben? Wäre es nicht besser die Tab Leiste standardmäßig nach unten zu legen und wer es anders möchte, der kann sich alle 10 oder 15 Versionen, eine UserChrome.css basteln.

I'm using Windows XP theme for Windows 7. Yes, it may sound weird, but I love that old Windows' design.

The problem is about the Mozilla Firefox browsers window height. As you can see in the screeenshot I posted below (or above, I actually have no idea where exactly), the bottom window is Mozilla Firefox browser and the top window is nothing but an explorer. Explorer has the default window height so we see the "minimise", "maximise" and "close" buttons correctly as it should be.

Is there a way to change this in Mozilla Firefox browser? It's not a big deal, but kinda bugs me when I look at that place.

Thank you.

I have my Firefox (Developer Edition 71.0b4) shortcut setup to display the "Choose User Profile" window when I start it. (Since I maintain both a personal and work profile.) Lately whenever I start this window comes up completely blank, with no content inside it at all, although the Choose User Profile title is still present. This prevents me from selecting a profile and starting Firefox.

To get around the problem, I close that blank window, wait a bit, and try launching the shortcut again. Often I have to try 3-4 times before it works.

This problem had existed on a previous version of Firefox (sorry didn't note version then), but seemed to get fixed with an update several months ago. Now the problem has returned.

I will try to attach an image later, but can't do so now while Firefox is running.
