When I click on a "mailto" link, Firefox (my default browser) opens a new tab, then immediately close that tab without waiting for my to interact with it. No draft email is created. I see that other users have reported this behavior in the past, and I've tried the suggested remedies without success. Specifically, I ran Malwarebytes, and it found no threats. I then started Firefox (on the Mac) via the Option key (to start it without ad-ons), and that does not change the behavior. I'm on ver 99.0.1 of FF, which is up to date as of 4/20/2022 (today). My Mac OS is also up to date (ver 12.3.1). My Mac is a 2021 MacBookPro with the Apple M1 Pro chip. I use gmail. OTHER BROWSER (like Safari and Chrome) can open "mailto" links in a new tab in FF (which is my default browser, and used for mailto links) just fine! Here is an example of the URL that I see in a new FF tab opened via Chome: https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?fs=1&tf=cm&source=mailto&su=Cover+of+the+River+Journal&to=Steve+Mones%3Cstevenmones@optonline.net%3E Any help would be appreciated. - Thanks, Jim

I have tried every instruction to no avail. I am a long-time firefox user, non-techie and it is discouraging when things disappear with each update lately. Would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks

I opened Firefox as usually, but passwords are missing, only logins are available. There is also a file called logins.json-1.corrupt in the profile folder.

Renaming it back to logins.json with restarting the computer does not work.

There are no previous versions of these two files available in the system.

Please let me know how I can recover passwords, may be with a special software.

Thank you!

Hello, For no reason I can easily identify, the plus symbol labeled tab to open new tabs from the browser has disappeared. I can still easily use the right click of the mouse or the control t keyboard trick, but I would much prefer the convenience of the ever available and accessible plus tab option. Your help to restore this feature would be very much appreciated. I use a Dell pc laptop with Windows 365 and Firefox. Thank you, Milagra Tyler [email removed from public]

Hi, so I noticed that the "WebGL Renderer String", which Firefox returns upon request, seems to be quite imprecise in some cases.

My desktop machine has a Nvidia Geforce GTX 650 Ti built into it.

Google Chrome for example returns the exact and correct renderer string: "ANGLE (NVIDIA, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Direct3D11 vs_5_0 ps_5_0, D3D11-27.21.14.5671)"

Firefox instead seems to assign and return a more simple, generic renderer string, in my case: "ANGLE (NVIDIA, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 Direct3D11 vs_5_0 ps_5_0)"

This is of course a great feature in terms of privacy ("browser-fingerprinting"). Nonetheless I didn't find any information about the rules which are applied, before such a more generic renderer string is being returned by Firefox. It would be cool if someone could share an insight with me!

Best regards

New computer, running Windows 11, McAfee LiveSafe came with for 30 day trial. I use Firefox, have since 1997. Just added Mozilla VPN. Old computer ran Xubuntu. Windows 11 needs antivirus because it's Windows. So. How compatible are McAfee LiveSafe and Firefox with Mozilla VPN? What suggestion, if any, does Mozilla have for an antivirus program that will work well for Windows 11 but not mess with Firefox and Mozilla VPN? Thank you.

The styles look astonishingly wrong, I really think it is a problem on my end, but cant figure out how to fix it, as you can see in the pictures, text is incorrectly sized and/or justified, color gradients are also weird looking, as well as sizing of many elements and tons of other things.

I have tried to completely remove Firefox from my system and reinstalling it, that did not seem to fix it. The reason I think is is a problem of mine is because i was playing with fonts (emojis weren't working on my system,not on Firefox tho, now they are in both)

I don't think the things i did with the fonts did anything to Firefox, since this problem only showed up on Firefox, but since the problem arrived just after a reboot while I was installing and removing the fonts, I think its important to mention.

To sum up I think the problem comes from my local configuration of Firefox, I probably did not delete it all before reinstalling, I am running (Arch btw) a current version of EndevourOS.

I had two Firefox windows open, one private and one not, and a lot of tabs open on both, and while I was browsing the internet on the non-private tab, suddenly both of them close. I reopen Firefox (or it reopens itself, I don't quite remember) and it shows me a message telling me about how I can save articles on pocket to read them later instead of keeping lots of tabs open. I restore my session, and most (but, bizarrely, not all) of my tabs come back, but then, I try to log into gmail, and I never get past the stage where it asks me my email adress, I keep re-entering my email and clicking on the next button and it just loads the same page again, and when I try to log into crunchyroll it brings me to a page that just keeps loading and stays black without ever being truly loaded, and when I try to log into twitter everything stays black too except with a twitter logo in the center. I can still go to some other sites on Firefox, and I can still go to twitter, gmail, youtube and crunchyroll on Google Chrome, but twitter, gmail, YouTube and Crunchyroll don't seem to work on FireFox and I don't understand why!

Hello! Since the most recent firefox update, my settings and extensions have been inaccessible to me due to my firefox account profile being "old." It has been working perfectly until this update. If I try to change my profile to my old one, it forces me to create a new one which does not include my saved addons and settings. I am able to usually manually move my bookmarks to the new profile via the files stored locally. I really need access to the settings and extensions, so it would be great if someone can help me to recover them. I tried to troubleshoot by finding my extensions local folder from my old profile, and I copied it to a new profile, but it didn't work. I am also wondering, if I do copy the extensions successfully, how can I also copy the settings preferences? Any solution is appreciated, thank you!
