I just downloaded and installed Firefox 72.0.2 for my Mac. I had been using 67, which had become problematic with screen freezes requiring Force Quit. The 72.0.2 appeared to install, showing the new icon in the Dock. I opened it and updated Shockwave Flash to the latest, which asked for a restart of the browser. Once restarted, I tried to open Firefox a pop-up claimed the profile was missing or inaccessible, but I could find it easily in its normal place.

After updating to Firefox 73 (running on Windows 7), no pages will load. Saved tabs have a blank URL bar, opening a new tab and putting in a URL does nothing, no built-in pages (such as the various about: pages, options page, etc.) work, nothing. All basic troubleshooting (including refreshing, reinstallation, and so on) completed with no change.

Due to problems with upgrading my Ubuntu to 18.04, I've been forced to use a LIVE DVD for the last 8 months instead of a properly installed Ubuntu. This LIVE DVD crashes or drops out from time to time so each time this happens I have to re-sync the Firefox it brings up. This re-sync requires a verification code to be sent by email, but because that email has to go through my Google filtering process, it usually takes longer than the code's 5 minute validity before I receive it. When I do finally get it and enter the received code back in Firefox, I'm told the code is invalid or expired. This is because 5 minutes validity is just too short a time for my setup. If it were 10 minutes, that would allow me to go into Gmail -> Settings -> Accounts & Import -> Check email from other accounts -> and then order Gmail to perform a special immediate mailcheck on my selected account. As a slow elderly old codger myself, I find it too hard to do all this within 5 minutes. Why can't we make it 10 mins?

Ever since my first ever use of FireFox the setting to "update" has been set to "Check for updates but let you choose to install them".

Yesterday I clicked to accept the latest update (to 71.0 I think) at which point the programme simply crashed without warning.

I went through various processes to try and resurrect FF, but without success --- FireFox would not run.

I eventually resorted to installing Version 65.0 but, despite the update settings being set as above, Version 71 kept installing and making FF a "non-starter" again.

I made an alteration to the "about:config" which seems to have stopped the automatic updating, albeit the "FF Icon" still wants to function as "Updater" and I get a message (when started) saying FF is unable to update to the latest version - "click here to download etc.," which of course I don't do and FF continues to perform as expected - albeit 65 and not 71.

Is there a problem with Version 71 and (possible) Win 7 64 bit ?

How can I reconfigure the "FF Icon" to simply start the programme (version 65) in the normal way and not get involved with it wanting to update all the time?

Another peculiarity that has arisen is that, when I try to change the Default language from American English to British English I receive a message saying FF cannot change as it is not online. (Version 65 and it is definitely online)

I have carried out system scans for Viruses etc., perform really in-depth un-installations of FF, and no new applications have recently been installed.

I've been using the FF 65 because FF didn't allowed the Simple Tab Groups add on for a while. Once FF allowed this add on again, I updated from 65 to 70. I completed the update and everything seems to work normal, but, when I restart the app: There is no master password, and all the saved logins are also gone. I know that FF has problems with the updates, so I copied my 65 version of FF an d also a copy of the profile. So I deleted the 70 and tried to update again, and the result is the same. It update's perfectly, but when I quit the app and open it again, master pass and logins are gone.

Does anyone knows what to do? Should I have to delete some file from the Profile?

Thanks in advance

I've just found that if I do Ctrl + mouse wheel, the page now zooms! I've used Firefox for about 15 years and never had this happen before. The only thing that's different today is that I have just uninstalled Flash?

How do I disable this? I have always used Ctrl+mouse wheel to control the volume. For me, it is essential to be able to quickly adjust the volume with the mouse wheel, and very frustrating not being able to!

Hello. I have been using Firefox off-and-on since the version 2.0, and there has been one bug that is plaguing me since 10+ years, and that is this error message that occurs when I close down Firefox and try to immediately reopen it (sometimes I wait 2-3 seconds just to avoid this error to no avail).

I am using version 65.0.2 (x64) now on latest Windows 10 version (on an MSI laptop with a spec of Intel i7 8750H cpu, Kingston SSD, 16 gb dual channel RAM and Nvidia RTX 2070 graphics card) and have been encountering this bug daily, and it really became so annoying that I'm considering reverting back to Chrome (which NEVER had this bug). This problem usually occurs when my previous Firefox session had more than 4 or so tabs, etc. but it also occurs when I just try to close and reopen the Firefox to test if the bug persists and 1 out of 5 times I get this bug and have to wait around 10 seconds for Firefox to realize there is a leftover session and offer me to close it before being able to open a new tab/window.

I have tried removing the .lock file from the profile folder (which DOES NOT remove itself when I end my session and gets recreated each time I restart a session), checking off the read-only mark from the profile folder, creating another profile and disabling hardware accelerating; but none of these made the slightest impact on the frequency I experience this problem. This thread from official Mozilla support also didn't help (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-already-running-not-responding ).

Should I just accept that this is the way Firefox works and that I need to wait 5-6 sec or so before attempting to reopen Firefox (as suggested here https://www.howtogeek.com/131004/how-to-fix-the-firefox-is-already-running-error/ (which dates back to 2012 and saddens me deeply that 7 more years of development changed nothing on this front)), or shut the Firefox down each time by killing it from the Task Manager; or could there maybe a fix to this? I had recently ditched Chrome since it froze my computer (a very rare bug related to the newer Windows 10 versions which occured only once to me, but felt serious enough that I uninstalled it), but if I can't find a reliable fix to this problem, I will probably just go back to Chrome where the bugs won't affect my daily usage.

Thank you for your help.
