I upgraded to 108.01 three days ago. It crashed 3 times in the next two days, accompanied by that popup you get informing you of the crash.

For years I've been using the extraction method of the executable to create a Firefox portable application. Upgrading only involves the install folder. The profile remains untouched, unaltered.

I had an incident of profile corruption a couple months ago, with basically Firefox launching with most features not working, i.e. toolbar buttons, toolbar menus, etc. Yesterday, for a short time, aside from two crashes, I had a similar experience with the buttons, but not quite the same. My default built in Firefox buttons worked, but my extension buttons didn't. I also noticed on a page that I regularly visit, Ublock origin wasn't doing it's regular job of blocking, and the Ublock button was non-responsive.

I'm also in the process of using the Brave Browser for the first time. The reason I'm posting this here about this subject, including a Brave experience, is that at the same time I was experiencing the Firefox erratic behavior, Brave was crashing as well; freezing; tabs not loading.

Considering the Brave tabs not loading, and the temporary Firefox Ublock origin failure, etc., I'm wondering if there might be something in common here? Maybe an internet connectivity issue at the time?

Hello,

I need your help: how can I set navigation bar without any item (hide all items of this bar)? I need that this bar appears but empty. The reason is that I want to restrict options in Firefox (for all users) but let it be allowed open windows pop-up.

I got remove the menu button that is to the right of the whole (hamburger type), the forward and backward buttons that are to the left of the whole (which are the arrows to the right and to the left), the detention (which is the cross), etc. I did this with commands in userChrome.css file

But what I can't hide is the item where the url's are placed (search box). I just need to hide the search box. I wrote " #nav-bar { visibility: collapse !important ; } " in userChrome.css , and then all navigation bar is hidden but don't get windows of pop-up that I need them to appear.

The version of Firefox that I have is 108.0.1 (64 bits).

Could you help me, please? It's a little urgent. Thanks!!

Hallo,

is it possible to automatically perform downloads in the library one after the other?

I have about 30 or 40 downloads in the list (videos), 2 to 5 GB in size, which of course take time to download. I have to start every single download individually and sit next to it.

Although I have a fast line (230 MBit per second), it still takes a few minutes for each file.

Is it possible that firefox or an addon is monitoring this list and after completing the first one downloads the next one and then gradually all the other starts?

Thanks

Also, when I try to sign into Firefox from that page - https://support.cdn.mozilla.net/hi-IN/questions/1381354 - I am blocked from signing in. Somehow I am signed in now, but not sure how. duh!

Thank you! Do I drag his legacy handlers into my profile, if I am able to do so? I have tried all other suggestions on this problem. I really hope not to have to start anew with Firefox, because I have years of settings I am afraid I will lose. (Know it is doable, but I am a coward, as well as stupid, apparently.)

I thought I'd give the Foxfire a try on my Windows 10 laptop, so I downloaded and created an account, etc. All worked fine until I tried to use my desktop shortcuts to open Chrome, Google Photos and Gmail. Non would open. I then opened Google and found my sync was off. I tried to sign in and could not sign into my Google Account, I then spent several hours with Google support trying to find the problem. At last, it allowed me to sign in and restore all my Google account items. I then uninstalled Firefox as I didn't want to go thru this problem again.

Does anyone know why this occurred and how to avoid it again if I were to want to reinstall Foxfire?

Thanks for the help.

After updating to 109.0 Firefox won't open on primary monitor. I have moved it, closed it, but it restarts back on secondary monitor. After I move it to primary monitor, if I open another browser window it opens on the primary. I have renamed the xulstore.json file(so it creates a new one) but that did not help. It was working fine before the 109.0 update. I also have chrome installed and it works fine the way it should, so I'm thinking it is a Firefox 109.0 problem.

Hi,

The primary e-mail on my account has been hacked for over a decade. I just did a fresh install in Windows not realizing I wouldn't be able to sign in to my Firefox account using my current e-mail because apparently my current e-mail is "not the primary account holder e-mail". Now I imagine I would have added it as a backup e-mail for the case of if I couldn't access my primary e-mail (which as I've said I haven't been able to do since approximately 2011 or so) but there isn't even an option to send the confirmation to the backup e-mail in that case. I'm really tired of going through this on every website I signed up on prior to our e-mails getting hacked. Is there a way we can just change the owner to the other e-mail so I can get back into my account please?

(sorry for my english)

I recently uprgraded Firefox from 102.0.1 to 109.0.1. UI went bigger, but I already searched that I had to create ui.textScaleFactor and set to 100 in about:config and to change browser.display.os-zoom-behavior to 0.

After these changes UI went normal again. Except one case: when I go to youtube and go fullscreen, then when I go back from fullscreen, my UI is going to bigger again - despite ui.textScaleFactor is 100 and browser.display.os-zoom-behavior is 0.

I need to restart Firefox and after restarting everyhing is normal (UI is not big).

The problem is: UI is going to bigger after youtube fullscreen and I need to restart the browser to go back to normal.

When you open a web site, a tab is created. And, obviously, if you have more then one site open, they're all there. But I just noticed that with the fourth tab, they stop being visible, and there's arrows on the far left (and right). So if you have five or six pages open and you want to go back to the first tab/web site, you have to hit the arrow on the far left to make that tab visible, and then click on the tab.

So they went from one step/click to two. Why do they do this? If it aint broke, don't fix it!

I don't want it like this. I want all the tabs there, without any arrows. Just like it always was. How do I get it back to what it was?

About three months ago, I changed the AO3 site skin to the Low Vision option, because I wanted to see if I could fix the then minor issue of not being able to see bold with my screen-reader, NVDA, when reading fics on the site. Some of the bold I knew to be there because I had personally put it in.

When I changed the skin, I was dismayed to find I could not only still not see bold, but I could no longer see italics with NVDA either. The AO3 sidebar menu was also tucked away behind a dropdown button, but I could open that up and get to the controls, so I didn't mind that so much. The formatting, however, posed a real problem, since italics are used for, among other things, emphasis, telepathic speech, and the speech of Pokémon in fanfics featuring humans who can understand Pokémon. So I definitely wanted this problem fixed.

I thought I could simply change the site skin back, but to my further dismay, switching back to the Default skin did not restore my former view of the site's pages. I began trying other things, seeking advice from other tech-savvy acquaintances after I'd exhausted all the possible fixes I could think of to no effect. Here is a list of everything I've already tried:

  • As mentioned before, changing the site skin back with the buttons on the site
  • Soft/Hard-Refreshing the page.
  • Logging out of and back into my AO3 account to artificially end the session.
  • Restarting the computer, and NVDA, by extension.
  • Disabling each of the three extensions I have in Firefox, just in case one of them had caused the issue.
  • Viewing the site while logged out to see if that made a difference.
  • Cleared browser cache, and when that failed to help, also cleared specifically the AO3 cookies.
  • Created a clean Firefox profile with no settings changed and no extensions added, pasted url of one of the pages I was using as a test into the address bar. Still no formatting visible.
  • Viewed page in Incognito mode.
  • Briefly thought I had a solution when I found the Page Styles submenu in the View menu, set the page to No Style. Got my old sidebar back, but not the formatting, and lost even that change after a refresh. Not ideal solution.
  • Downloaded the portable version of Firefox, opened it and pasted in a url again. Still no formatting.
  • Reluctantly, opened AO3 in Google Chrome. Could see all the formatting with NVDA when logged out, and when I logged in, could still see the formatting.

I also discovered Reader View while testing some of these things, and this allowed me to read the text of a fic or chapter with all its formatting, but that view doesn't include the Author's Notes, or the comments, and that sacrifices some of the nuance of those because I don't see the emphasis on any words/phrases without the formatting.

I have contacted the AO3 support team, but they are just as confused as I am and don't know what could have happened. They say they haven't changed anything on the site that they could pinpoint as causing this problem.

I have tried asking on the BlindTech email list I'm subscribed to, which is where I was given the link to Portable Firefox, but I have exhausted all their ideas as well, some of which were included in the above list.

Now I come to you. Please, if you can shed any light on what might have caused this problem, I would deeply, sincerely appreciate it.

I honestly don't now which topic this belongs in. Today I have had Google asking to sign in when I go to a login page of some websites. I am not logged into Google on this computer. I do not have Chrome installed.

Windows10, Firefox browser, Qwant search engine. Autofill options are off. I deleted Google from the search engine options. I have cleared all history several times today and still had this happen.

Ii know some websites offer logging in with another account such a Google, FaceBook, Twitter, etc. but I don't recall seeing this pop-up before, and I didn't look at it, really. I just closed it because it was in my way. I probably wouldn't have thought anything of it except I was setting up an account and they sent me an email telling me I asked to change my email address and would no longer be able to log in with that email address.

I've seen a few other complaints about Google asking to sign into websites on Firefox and they seem ridiculous, but it appears something may be going on. Does anybody know why this would be happening? Is there anything I should look at in about:config?

When I try to use the sign in through google function (such as the popup created by soundcloud or third party clients, like the Riot Games launcher), as well as just signing into google normally, the page prompting me for my email loads fine. However, when I provide my email, regardless of account, loading the prompt for my password takes a very long time, ~1-2 minutes. The page just spins infinitely, doesn't show any considerable usage in firefox's task manager, and doesn't give any errors in the process. The problem doesn't happen in another web browser, such as chrome. What's strange is that, AFAIK, the only two processes affected are the google login, and amazon checkout. I can hit the checkout button on amazon, but the page will simply load eternally. If I look at amazon through other means, such as my phone, I can see that the order I just checked out HAS been created and paid for, but firefox is caught on something and never loads the order complete page. Other logins and loading processes are not affected. Some (I have been trying to fix this for days and cannot remember all) of the troubleshooting steps I've taken are- -Manually removing all extensions -Disabling Window's Defender's browser protection -Running Firefox in safe mode -Completely refreshing firefox, wiping all settings, cookies, cache, and logins -Disabling tracking protection (although the indicator shield shows no activity on google's sites) -Double checking the cross-site cookie protocol (I've had the automatic five-exception set up, and have never been prompted about it before -Given the nature of the sites with issues (google, youtube, and amazon) I even checked for evidence of the Trojan mentioned here to no avail: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/websites-show-spinning-wheel-never-finish-load
