Just refresh my computer, new install of Firefox, but all of my Bookmarks were missing, a collection of 25 years, all gone. Tried to sync with my XP computer, where the originals were, but it too was empty. Found JSONLZ4 files, two of them, one dated today and one dated yesterday. Both empty, is there any way to recover all those bookmarks?

Several weeks ago, because it seemed to be a Gmail-tab-only problem, Firefox Support advised us to contact Gmail Support.

It is now clear that the problem is with the Firefox browser. The attached screenshot shows an example of an affected tab.

Please fix this. Multiple versions of the same tab waste RAM and other memory, especially on a limited-memory device such as a laptop.

(Firefox 94.0; Fedora 34; Gnome)

When I go to some video websites and click the play button, I see the little circular thing in the image are spinning, indicating that the video is loading. But it never stops and it never plays. Also, the pause button does not have any effect; the loading indicator keeps spinning. Example website: "https://proclassictv.com/" (both with "The Rifleman" and "My Favorite Martian" episodes. I've tried this on a few of the videos available there. Same result. I've tried this with add-ons enabled and with add-ons disabled (current session). I've seen this in a few other websites also. I don't know if the problem is my system, Firefox, or the host website.

I am able to view youtube videos with no problems.

How do I get the videos to play?

Thank-you.

Hello! Something in my Firefox installation seems to be making several Google network (google.com / forcesafesearch.google.com / www.youtube-nocookie.com / m.youtube.com, and a couple of others) calls shortly after launch. I have a DNS sinkhole, so that is how I can see.

I have a few reputable extensions (or should be, from EFF, Firefox itself, or Ublock Origin), but it also happens in safe mode. I went through a good chunk of this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-stop-firefox-making-automatic-connections and still the calls occur

I am on Windows 10, with FF v93.

It took years to perfect my userchrome to make FF look exactly how I want. Once 91+ came out it wasn't even a question of fixing the floating tabs and condensing the height and menu spacing (though I tried all of it) but my own codes stopped working properly - I had code to set the background colour of menus/bookmark menus and when I upgrade they were the right colour but with thick white borders around them. This was more important to me than the floating tabs and I immediately downgraded to 90 where I've stayed. Can anyone help me figure out how to get MY codes to work with 91+ and/or to work together with the other fixes out there (tabs, condensed menus etc)??

Below is how my userchrome looks and attached is how my current set up looks. ANY advice is appreciated. THANK YOU.

This problem has been happening for a long time now. When I'm playing a playlist in YouTube, and YouTube automatically select the next song in the playlist, the song stops and I get the message "Playback Paused because your account is being used in another location". This problem ONLY happens in Firefox and with this playlist scenario. If I select the song manually in the playlist, the song will play just fine. I've used other browsers Chrome and Microsoft Edge and DO NOT have the problem in there so I know my account isn't being used in another location. I've tried using multiple PC's/Laptops and both Windows 7 and 10 and the problem always only happens when using Firefox. I checked the About section in Firefox and it's showing Firefox is Up To Date.

I use the bookmark bar very heavily and my workflow was to just "drag" the tab with the mouse to folder in the bookmark bar, which would unfold and I drop the tab/bookmark in the desired sub-folder.

This worked really well for me, and was fast.

Recently, this stopped working. I can still drop a bookmark in one of the main folders in the bookmark bar. But not in any sub-folder, since the main folder closes as soon as I move the mouse inside it. It is also not possible anymore to move the already-saved bookmarks around via drag&drop.

Howdy, fellow Firefox aficionados.

I'm running FF on a Windows 10 Home 64-bit desktop. Some time ago, I suddenly could no longer open Firefox because it couldn't find my Profile. So, I attempted to create a new one, but it would not allow me to do so.

"Changes Not Saved"

   "An unexpected Error has prevented your changes from being saved."

[See uploaded Image]

More than likely, either I, or one of my system maintenance programs wiped some data or folder. I have deleted Firefox and reinstalled it with the latest version, but this dilemma persists.

Hello together.

I'm experiencing the same problem as discussed in this cases that is not solved yet: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1312836 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1333547 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1321038

Symptoms: After FF starting it loads pages fast enough. After several minutes of using pages start be loading very slow. Loading slowness increases until it becomes blocked continuously. Reload button has no effect. I tried everything from here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can - No effect.

Work around done: When windows is loading in Safe Mode the problem disappeared. If I disable Windows Defender Firewall the the problem disappear and appear after firewall enabling again in several minutes (same as after FF restarting) When I go to <current network settings> and switch Network Profile from Public to Private or from Private to Public the problem disappear but goes back just in several minutes (same as after FF restarting). Windows 10 Restorehealth has no effect, and reports that everything is OK with system files (DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth ) The most strange thing Windows 10 In-place Upgrade has no effect.


I found out the core of problem is that Windows Firewall is blocking FF internal interprocess communication on local TCP ports. Yes, you would say it is not possible and firewall doesn't affect local port communication but in my case it is a fact. I used the ProcessMonitor from Windows Sysinternals, and Windows Defender Firewall with Advanced Security log. Screenshots shows this fact. On first two lines from Firewall log you see a Local Port Communication blocking, on ports 1401 and 1400. Next Screenshot from ProcessMonitor shows (see blue colored lines) that it was exactly FF communication, where I was trying to reload a page several times.

Any ideas what to do with it? It seems like Microsoft’s way fighting a concurrent web browsers, but I hope it isn’t.

Now I use FF version 94 but the problem starts from 88. I was trying FF downgrading to version 75 with no effect.

I've been having an interesting problem with Firefox for the past couple of months regarding only Soundcloud, where after the first visit to the website it won't load, giving a generic "Sorry! Something went wrong" screen. Firefox will continue to not load the site correctly until I clear the cookies and the cache, which works but only for one visit, and as soon as I close the tab and open soundcloud again or refresh the tab the problem comes back. I have disabled all of my extensions as well as enhanced tracking protection when testing. A firefox refresh also did not solve the problem. The only way I can get the site to behave normally is when using private browsing.

The console is filled with errors regarding javascript files (source URI is not allowed in this document).
