Hi,

When I use firefox I see a grey box of different sizes + white lines instead of a website shown correctly. I attached a screenshot of a typical display of a website in my firefox browser.

Could someone help me to make firefox work as expected?

Thanks.

I normally choose my download location and if they're zip I'll delete them after extract.

The problem is currently I can't find any way to get where did I put my downloaded files if it's not there.

BUT!!! In order to know the files aren't there, Firefox has to know where did I put them.

I searched the home folder but nothing named `download` is in the folder.

I asked a question for what should I do https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1312757 but doesn't get anything remotely useful.

Over the past week I've had this error popup a few times when Firefox is launched:

"You've launched an older version of Firefox. Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history already saved to an existing Firefox profile. To protect your information, create a new profile for this installation of Firefox."

I haven't yet spotted a pattern, but the most recent time it happened, I had the browser already open and either opened a new window or clicked Firefox in my start menu. The new window showed my homepage (blank tab) but was unresponsive: I couldn't type into the address bar, click a bookmark, or even close the window. The existing window was fine, so I closed that but had to kill Firefox in Task Manager.

When I relaunched Firefox, I got the above error message. Luckily I use Sync, so my many bookmarks are backed up. But of course all cookies have been deleted, so I have to login to websites again.

Firefox is up-to-date (84.0.1, 64-bit) and running on Windows 10 Enterprise. I even uninstalled, cleared out the data in AppData\Roaming\Mozilla (plus Local and LocalLow), and reinstalled.

As I said, this has happened a few times over the last week (3 or 4?) and is starting to get annoying now!

Any ideas? Thanks!

I am attempting to connect to my cable modem to change its password. The router is at 192.168.0.1

The modem does not support HTTPS connections. Even when I turn off HTTP Elevation in FireFox, turn off Microsoft Antivirus and Firewall, then type HTTP://192.168.0.1 FireFox changes the address to HTTPS://192.168.0.1

I can connect via HTTP://192.168.0.1 via my iPhone using Safari.

I have also added 192.168.0.1 with care to that it is HTTP: not HTTPS: address in FireFox to allow popups, and that this address is an exception.

I'd like to stop receiving advertising emails from firefox. Firefox emails have been loading up in my spam folder since I didn't sign up for firefox sync. It began one day when I noticed an important looking warning informing me I needed to finish sigining up for sync. I had no cluse from the warning who was sending it. Spent some time with possible vendors and we realized it was mozilla. I turned it off/deleted/signed out/. I neve signed into mozilla sync to begin with. Now, mozilla is send me emails telling me to finish something I have yet to begin because I don't want it, which is sync. Now what I don't want are mozilla emails. This forum is the only way I can see to try and get word to mozilla. Oh, there's one other thing I might need some help with. Does anyone know if my bookmarks in mozilla firefox will transfer easily to say Google Chrome?

When opening a new tab FF is opening Duck Duck Go after DDG has been removed. I have deleted and reinstalled FF several times, I have cleaned the cache.

I have set the homepage to https://startpage.com (SP,) I have removed the extension Duck Duck Go (DDG.) When starting FF it opens SP, but when I click on the new tab (+) it opens DDG. The trouble-shooting information below says that DDG is Enabled, but I have removed it and the extension is not listed in the Add-Ons manager.

I have set FF > Preferences > Home > ...New Windows and Tabs > Homepage and New Windows > Custom URLs... > https://startpage.com/ ...New Tabs > Firefox Home (Default)

Why is FF reverting to DDG? Where is DDG coming from? Can I stop/disable DDG from appearing?

I want to set up a bunch of bookmarks in FF [84.0.1] and I cannot find out what the acceptable bookmark format is. [the bookmarks will come from someone else so I'd like to write a program to generate the appropriate import file]. I've tried edit an exported HTML file and then importing that [modified] file and it doesn't seem to work at all, so I'm clearly not understanding what has to be in the file so it'll work.

My plan/hope was to be able create a file with

<DL><P>
   <DT> FOLDERNAME 
   <DL> <P>
        <DT> <A HREF=URL> name for the bookmark</a>
       <DT> <A HREF=URL> name for trhe bookmakr</a>
               ...
    </DL>
</DL>

Is that even vaguely close to something that'll work?

Recently (within the last few days) tabs have began crashing on youtube. Specifically if a video player page is loaded, but the player itself is paused for any length of time.

I have tried and successfully reproduced the issue with safe mode, I've also successfully reproduced the issue with a new profile. I've also successfully reproduced the issue with an entirely new ~/.mozilla directory.

It appears (based on what I can see) something on the page is triggered, then memory spikes and the tab crashes.

What else should I try to resolve this?

12/25/2020

Hello Mozilla Support, please advise on how to permanently disable the "expanding/enlarging" URL bar that continues to be featured with each new browser update. From previous experience, I have uninstalled/reinstalled and attempted to change the following advanced settings as seen on other threads:

Method 1: 1. about:config 2. browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus = FALSE 3. browser.urlbar.update1 = FALSE 4. browser.urlbar.update1.interventions = FALSE 5. browser.urlbar.update1.searchTips = FALSE

Method 2: 1. about:config 2. browser.urlbar.disableExtendForTests = TRUE 3. browser.urlbar.maxRichResults = 0

Neither of these methods currently seem to work and even when they have worked in the past, why does Mozilla continue to enable this feature with each new update without a simple option to disable when so many users have requested instructions on how to shut off? What is the purpose of the expanding URL bar? What does an enlarged URL bar do to benefit the search experience? Is there another reason why Mozilla keeps this feature going for every new update? It often becomes time consuming to search and figure out what the new procedure is to keep disabling, every single time an update occurs.

Please help, Thank you!
