Recent versions of Firefox have started crashing more and more often for me. As of version 80.0, it happens around 1–2 times a day on average, usually when the session has been running for a while. In the middle of work, Firefox window(s) will just disappear and the process is no longer running. This will happen both on my Windows 10 and my Windows 7 system.

I recently realised that I hadn't been seeing the Mozilla Crash Reporter window in a long time, on either system. I just assumed my crash reports were being sent in order to help fix these bugs, but today I decided to check, and saw that crash reports are not even generated anymore. When I oben about:crashes, I see that the last crash report is from May. I'm sure I've had Firefox crash many dozens of times since then, but the crash reporting facility seems to no longer work.

I tried running Firefox in Safe Mode as well. The result is the same: it will crash usually after a few hours of work, without any error, no crash reporter window, and no crash report showing up in about:crashes afterwards.

What could have broken my Crash Reporter functionality (and on both of my systems, too)? And how can I get it back to generating and submitting these reports?

Hi,

Problem as described in the title. I've read some similar questions and answers, but nothing ever helped.

I already tried the following steps (none of them helped): - Checking for updates - Toggling DRM on/off - Uninstall Firefox completely (delete profiles, too and so on) - Changing some DRM or Plugin related config in about:config like media.peerconnection.video.h264 (and of course reverting it after that) - Looking for XHR requests when toggling DRM on/off or visting a site with DRM content. I couldn't figure out what I'm actually looking for, though... - Switching off Firewall/Antivirus or the TLS filtering (Eset) for a moment - Looking for suspicious requests in some router protocols or dashboards or whatever

Thanks in advance!

How can I retrieve lost bookmarks? Syncing between two Firefox browsers replaced my newer bookmarks with the bookmarks of my less-often used browser. I expected the newer bookmarks to appear on the other browser. But instead the more-often used browser now has the same bookmarks as the less-oft used one.

As a researcher and writer I'm constantly on the web, and have many downloaded book marks that were organized by folders on the Menu bar. But this old laptop seems to crash frequently when I'm using Firefox. After the most recent crash most of the folders had vanished - three did not.

How can I restore those missing folders to the menu bar? Redoing them is a possibility, but would take a great deal of time.

Thanks,

DMS

Last night, I noticed that the usual Dock icon for Firefox developer Edition had changed from Blue Fox to what looked like the App Store brush/pencil triangle. I restarted but it persisted. Removed the application and re-downloaded and re-installed, but same issue. I then noticed that all the Tools -> Web Developer tools had gone from the menu. Likewise, doing Firefox -> About inserted 'about:preferences' in the search bar, but nothing else happened. Tried launching the settings from the right side hamburger menu, again nothing happened.

Read around a bit, and deleted one of two profiles from ~/Library/ApplicationSupport/..., then tried re-install and restart the Developer Edition, but that complained that a profile was missing. Restored the profile I deleted, but same problem as before.

I'm stumped. Can anyone help with this one please? I'm on Mac, latest version of Mojave.

Thanks

  • doesn't work in safemode, either
  • DOES work when selecting from the "Edit" menu (where it shows the shortcut as being ctrl+f)
  • I read online that Ctrl+G might work? this one has mixed results for me... I think it's working like F3, repeating the previous search, if there is one, and if it has any matches, and only if neither of those are true, opens the "find in this page" toolbar
  • pressing "/" and apostrophe both do their things (but not when an input/textarea has focus, of course)

Hello years ago I signed up to be a release channel user. I no longer want to be part of that as prefer to have updates to firefox only when they are released to everyone and not beta releases.

Yesterday, my Yahoo bookmarks (not Firefox bookmarks) on my my.yahoo.com page began displaying improperly. They are no longer alphabetized, some don't work, and they each have a grey icon for edit and delete visible next to them. They also are not as compact as they used to be, and I can't collapse any of the folders. This problem does not occur if I use Chrome or Internet Explorer 11. It also does not occur in Firefox on my laptop computer (I am using Firefox 80.0 on both machines). I have tried turning off all extensions, restarting Firefox, logging out and back into My Yahoo, and rebooting the computer. I also tired refreshing Firefox (which I HATE to do). No luck. I have included two images. The small one shows how they are supposed to look (cut from IE) and the larger one shows how they now appear in Firefox.

Any help will be greatly appreciated, as I use these bookmarks all the time.If you need more information, please ask.
