In the past few weeks when I click in an Outlook email "click here to view it in a web browser", the page is opened by Internet Explorer. It used to be Firefox. How can I clear out IE? Firefox is listed as the default browser. Interestingly when I posted the question, the contents of this message was deleted and was not sent. Is that MS at work?

In the last couple of days, Firefox has started unexpectedly exiting.

It doesn't show an error message on screen or create a Firefox crash report - it just vanishes - but it does create a WER log and entry in the Windows Application error log. It doesn't necessarily exit when it has the focus in response to user interaction - some times I'll be doing something else, and try to tab back to Firefox, and it's just gone. Mean time between crashes is about 30 minutes - not "instantly" or "on startup" but enough to be unlivable with.

I have reinstalled Firefox, checked that it is up to date (73.0.1 (64-bit)), and disabled all my plugins except 1Password (I can't really use a browser without the 1Password plugin so if it doesn't work with it on, it's the same as it not working at all)

Some WER log files for example:

and here's a windows application log entry:

I use a master password for my Firefox account. My desktop Firefox account only required me to enter my master password once and I have never, in the year or more since, had to enter it again. However on my laptop, I am constantly nagged to enter the master password each and ever time I open Firefox. And if I don't enter it and press cancel, it will eventually nag me a few seconds to a a few minutes later.

I've searched support and none of the suggestions have resolved the issue. I don't use AVG or Eset Internet Security. I followed the steps in the guide anyway but did not resolve the issue.

Thank you for your consideration.

My laptop: Microsoft Surface 6 i7-8650U, 8Gb RAM Windows 10 Home 64-bit version 1903 Firefox version 73.0.1

I am in the process of migrating over to Firefox from Chrome. But seem to have issues with Bookmarks (Not importing them, but just the simple action of adding a new bookmark and saving them to whatever folder I want to organize it into).. When I go to add a new Bookmark (clicking the Star Icon in the Address Bar), and I go to click the dropdown to choose a folder to where I want it saved, it always reverts back when I choose another folder.

Steps:

1. Go to website

2. Click the Star Icon to add bookmark

3. The folder option is usually set to the most recent folder a Bookmark was previously added to.

4. Click the Folder dropdown (NOT the icon that shows all folders, but the actual dropdown) and select a new folder

5. As soon as I select a new folder (doesn't matter where), it reverts back to the folder it was set to (in Step 3).


The behavior seems to add the Bookmark to the location, but then does a "CTL+Z" (Undo so to speak), as seen when I try to add the new Bookmark to the Bookmarks Toolbar, I see it there for half a second before it reverts.


The only way for me to move the location of the bookmark where I want it saved is to:

1. Hit the button next to the Folders dropdown to Show All Bookmarks Folders and select the folder

or

2. In the Folders dropdown, select "Choose..." which does Step 1 in showing all the bookmarks folders.


If I restart Firefox, it will work, for the FIRST Bookmark I add. I can use the dropdown to save the Bookmark to whatever folder I choose. But any new bookmark after that, reverts to the problem behavior again.

I have tried to do a clean Install of Firefox (Uninstall Firefox, then Delete %AppData%/Roaming.Mozilla/Firefox and %AppData%/Local/Mozilla/Firefox folders respectively)

I have also disabled all extensions, and the behavior still persists (For reference I have the following extensions installed: 1Password, Alternate Player for Twitch, Clippings, Facebook Container, NoScript and uBlock Origin).

Not sure what other steps I can take?

(Is there a way for me to create a gif showing this behavior?)

For some time now the Firefox addons page looks like a broken CSS. Last night it fixed itself for about 5 minutes and then went back to broken state again. I can't find an easy way to report this to Mozilla, so I'm hoping someone of their web developers would be reading this forum. There's a screenshot of what the addons page looks like in 99.99% of the time. I tried everything I could think of, including deleting history, browser cache, resetting to a clean profile, etc. - nothing changed it back to the normal view. I even tried as described at the end of this article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/websites-look-wrong-or-appear-differently to click "View" menu but it already is set to "Basic view", so that didn't help either. Installing an addon works fine, it's just that the website appears as a broken CSS. The browser version is Firefox 73.0.1 64-bit.

Edit: only the addons page appears as a broken CSS, all other pages of the domain mozilla.org appear to be fine.

Lately, about 1 or 2 months, every few days when I type a search in the embeded seaerch box with google as the engine, i get a greyed out and unusable results page. I have tried uninstalling all addons but nothing changes. The only thing that works is deleteing all coockies and site data in Options>privacy&security.

I had a whole bunch of tabs that had been open for quite some time on my browser that I was planning to go through. I have my browser set to restore tabs / previous session each time I open so all the previous tabs remain there, and have had no problems for a long time. However the last time I tried to close Firefox it gave a warning saying I was trying to close x amount of tabs. I thought it a bit strange considering it hadn't asked me this before when closing but didn't think anything of it and closed the browser, only to open it next time to find all my open tabs had gone rather than being restored as normal.

I hadn't knowingly changed any of my settings and its still set to 'Restore previous session', and I can't work out a) why it hasn't restored it and b) what changed to prompt it to ask me if I wanted to close my tabs and then remove them rather than what it has always done!

When Firefox is launched, a Finder Message reads: "The application “Firefox.app” can’t be opened." After problems with Firefox (possibly related to Kaspersky Internet Security software), I finally resorted to: a) uninstalling and deleting all Kaspersky software (which had no effect), b) deleting all Firefox and Mozilla files, and c) reinstalling a new downloaded version of Firefox. Firefox still will still not launch when the Firefox icon in the Applications folder is clicked. The so-called safe-mode launch is not available when the Option key was used for launch. I can launch the new version of Firefox using a Terminal command (which also restores previous in-use windows and website pages that were in use), but no web pages will load anyway.
