A couple versions back, I started getting this pop-up message each morning, "Firefox can't update to the latest version". I downloaded a newer version and upgraded manually a couple times, now up to 70.0, and the pop-up keeps happening. I see a couple other people have reported a similar problem, one here was blown off because they were, supposedly, running a beta version. I'm not running beta. The other one I found was fixed by doing something to the registry, but I'm on Linux, not MS Windows so there's no registry (at least none that I know about).

The one other symptom I've noticed is that when I bring up the "About Firefox" window, it takes a really long time to figure out that "Firefox is up to date". And it always says it's up to date (if I wait long enough) even when there's a newer version available.

It would be greatly helpful if that pop-up would say *why* it couldn't update itself but it does not give any useful information.

Thanks for any help on this.

I am unable to delete bookmarks. Not with the Delete function on any menu, and not by dragging off the Bookmarks Menu list in Library to the sidebar (which used to work). I have used Cookie5 (now disabled), which bloggers say corrupts places.sqlite. I have tried these things: I deleted the places file and restarted. This wiped bookmarks but not their folders. 2. I went to Time Machine and replaced current places file with older ones. Bookmarks returned but still no delete option. 3. I tried to restore bookmarks from backups. All JSON backups must be corrupted, because none will open. And the Export and Backup functions do not work either. 4. I checked Places Database to Verify Integrity. No solution there, but readout is below. 5. I tried to create a new profile, set up an account and tried to sync. No luck. So I copied an older places.sqlite file into the new Profile: the bookmarks were there, but in the new profile the problem of deleting them remained. I am stumped.

Readout: > Task: checkIntegrity - Unable to check places.sqlite integrity: Error: Error(s) encountered during statement execution: database disk image is malformed > Task: invalidateCaches - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: checkCoherence - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: expire - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: originFrecencyStats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: vacuum - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: stats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: _refreshUI

I used to be able to zoom in and out so smoothly and seemlessly by just using the touchpad and pinching fingers, and at some point, with more recent updates/upgrades, this disappeared. I've been using FF for a while now, so would be great if this zooming control from touchpad would be really great again!

Starting yesterday, Firefox will not load the description section of any eBay listings (Chrome is doing the same thing). This is the error:

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to vi.vipr.ebaydesc.com. Peer reports it experienced an internal error. Error code: SSL_ERROR_INTERNAL_ERROR_ALERT

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

I am on my Mac Pro, running OS 10.14.3. If I open listings on a Windows machine on the same internet connection, the pages load fine. The problem persists even after clearing the cache/cookies. I need to find out what is causing this, as I use eBay on a daily basis for work. If anyone has any ideas, your input will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

P.S. The only extensions I am using are UBlock Origin (pages do not load properly with it disabled, either), Facebook Purity, and New Tab override.

Hi, i am a Firefox lover. I have been using Firefox for about 3 years. But have one things that i really hate in Firefox, that is bookmark bar in Firefox not disappear automatic when you are not in Newtab. My screen is quiet small (13 inch) so it's quiet anoy when the bookmark bar take a small space of the interface. I just wonder that why Firefox don't make it like Chrome?

I tried a way, which is using custom userChrome.css but it's animation is not smooth.

I really love Firefox and i hope that you will make it become more convenient for users.

Thank you.

This was first reported here original post and verified by Mchall and me.

The issue arises with the following steps

   find a cell with text (not formula)
   place the cursor in the edit line (formula bar)
   backspace to remove all of the text
   type in new text
   hit enter

A new line, char(10) is inserted after the text. Confirmed with a find function.

It did this with Firefox but not Chrome. Reported in Google sheets forum title "Why are line breaks being added to cells randomly" Can't see how to add link here.

Version: firefox-70.0-1.fc30.x86_64 [Fedora 30. GNOME. Wayland]

I tried running with --safe-mode [all extensions disabled], but it kept happening. Does the following match any known problem?

I don't have any crash information recorded by firefox. So I've tried running it in a terminal instead and capturing the console output.

    1. No firefox crash recordings

The crash report dialogue does *not* appear when Firefox crashes.

Firefox support articles also suggested I look in "about:crashes". However when I visit "about:crashes", Firefox just says "Hmm. That address doesn’t look right. Please check that the URL is correct and try again."

In "~/.mozilla/firefox/Crash Reports/submitted/", there are several files but they are all older than the current month (November 2019).
