I had this problem yesterday when I started up this browser it said, "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem.". So I read through the article and it said to restart my mac, so I did just that and pow, my bookmarks and history returned! Little did I know that the next day, (today) I'd start up Firefox and the message was there again, but this time, it got even worse.

       First I tried to tackle the bookmark problem, "Quit Firefox" they said, "Restart your computer." they said, "Create a new database". None of those worked, so I scrambled the internet looking for answers, all of them resolved their problems, every one else was A-ok, excluding me, and just like that, my add-ons weren't working anymore! Ad-block Plus, Dark Reader, Privacy Badger, nothing. I tried to delete Adblock first and reinstall it, because that's what their page told me to do, and I keep getting this message trying to reinstall it saying, "Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt." 
       And little did I know that every other extension said the exact same thing. So i knew something was going on that was out of my control. And then finally, the "pièce de résistance" to my pain and suffering through out this whole hour or so, pages won't even load even though I'm connected to the internet, how perfect... Even trying to update the browser won't work, downloading a new one also goes through the same "pages not loading problem. 
        So in conclusion, hopefully, just hopefully, you guys can help me out. I'll probably have to resort to my old laptop, (which is slow and almost unusable with how buggy that thing is.) seeing how my mac has also been running into problems these last few days as well before this conundrum. 

Good Luck and Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello dear Mozilla community!

I've faced an issue with search engines configuration for Firefox on macOS. I'm doing the following:

  1. Removing all but one One-Click Search Engines, leaving only one engine in the list (currently my preference is DuckDuckGo): https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-41-395a2a.png or https://imgur.com/DKqvzZ9
  2. When I type search request in the address bar I'm seeing nice and clean search suggestions from Search Provider of my choice: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-13-a8d46c.png or https://imgur.com/a/slivHlF
  3. Close Firefox
  4. (not sure what other conditions needed)
  5. Open Firefox
  6. When typing search request in the address bar I see that Amazon and Ebay options are back and a suggestion line "This time, search with ..." as added by firefox: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-02-4a25db.png or https://imgur.com/vjq0NCf
  7. In the preference I see that those two searches (Ebay and Amazon) were automatically re-added to One-Click Search Engines: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-23-91dd1d.png or https://imgur.com/ibnlzLS

That issue is happening to me across different versions of firefox and isn't new. I've been seeing it for a few month hoping that to resolve in a newer versions. But as of right now I'm on 82.0.3 (64-bit) and the issue is still there.

It's a bit annoying as I have to my preferences literally every time I need to restart Firefox (which is especially annoying to do right after restarting FF to switch to a newer version).

Any suggestions and help is welcome!

Best regards, Serhii.

Hello,

I have the following query. I have two certificates from infoNotary with which I am using for work. One private and one business certificate. In Firefox "privacy and security " options I have put the check to" ask me every time " which certificate to use when I am login into different pages that require it. When I log in a site for example the ministry of finance website, I am not getting the drop down menu to select which certificate I can use. This occurred after the latest firefox update. In order to use this options I am forced in Privacy and Security options -> cookies and site data to check the " delete cookies when firefox is closed." Only then when I restart Firefox I am getting the option to choose which certificate I want to use. This is an inconvenience for me, as whenever I log into a site I am pushed to agree and accept cookies and data. I want to be able to automatically accept cookies after the first acceptance and still be prompted to select which certificate I would like to use.

The Zoom Scheduler extension for Firefox used to work fine and was really helpful when I need to schedule Zoom meetings for work. Around Oct 8, it stopped working and gives the error "Schedule meeting failed. Please try again." when I use the "Make it a Zoom meeting" button in Google Calendar or "Schedule a Meeting" in the extension button.

I tried going through Zoom support and they eventually said they would escalate the case to their engineers, but other people have confirmed that the extension still works with Firefox and I'm starting to suspect it is something wrong with my installation or my computer or something.

Here are the things I've tried:

  • Uninstalled the extension and added it back
  • Made sure there is only 1 Google account added and that I'm logged in to it
  • Refreshed Firefox
  • Reinstalled Firefox
  • Removed FF profiles and reinstalling
  • Tested the Zoom extension in Chrome (yes, it works there)
  • Set popups to not be blocked
  • Cannot test in Safe Mode since the problem is with an extension, but at this point the Zoom extension is the only one installed
  • Looked at what happens in the console when I try to use the Zoom extension (unfortunately I don't understand what these lines mean): https://www.screencast.com/t/eg53k7KcRu
  • One more clue or possibly red herring: I also had problems recently using the LastPass extension where you are supposed to be able to export all your passwords, it is supposed to pop up a window but instead got stuck in a loop of requesting my master password

Amazon prime video will no longer play on Firefox. This started on 11/15/2020. Amazon Prime store and other features work fine, but when you select a video, the Amazon page and Firefox screen freezes in that the cursor travels over the screen and page but no matter where you click you get no response. You have to refresh the page and reload Amazon to get functionality back. I can stream video on Safari, but not on Firefox, and Firefox is my browser of choice as it is more content feature rich than Safari. I need to get my Amazon video streaming working again. Two additional issues, this is now happening with YouTube too. You can watch YouTube videos, but they take a great deal, sometimes over a minute or two, to load. Finally, I get a message on my Firefox page when I try to load Coinbase that I have to use Chrome, an idea that I detest, using any Google product. Please provide me with some answers and solutions. I have posed a number of questions regarding loss of use and features on the version of Firefox in the last week, and not one of them has been responded too, or answered, which really disappoints me as far as my opinion of the support you offer, volunteer or not. Not trying to bust your chops, but some support would be better than none. Thanks for your input. PLEASE give me a solution so I can continue to use Firefox. BTW when I clicked the " share data" button below, it erased over 30 minutes of work I did in this field and answer, and I had to start again from scratch, so I have over an hour invested in trying to contact you and get some support.

I recently uploaded macOS Big Sur onto my MacBook Air. At that point, my Firefox turned into a question mark on the tool bar and I have to sign in to Firefox Sync whenever I click on the question mark (which then becomes the Firefox symbol). Meanwhile, I clicked a link in an email, and this led to a second Firefox showing up in my toolbar. Both are Firefox browser 83.0, 64-bit, but the second one doesn't require signing in. However, the first one (the Sync) did retain my bookmarks. What is going on? And what do I do to just have one version of Firefox, preferably one that retains my bookmarks? Thanks for any advice!

Problem One: 1Password extension not working for me. I installed Firefox and made it my primary browser. Extensions have been a disaster for me. First I tried adding the 1 Password extension. I did this because when I tried opening a page from 1 Password uninstalled on the browser, it didn't l as it should (has always done so with Safari). I had to open 1Password separately, and copy the information, which is tedious.

So I installed the 1Password Extension on Firefox. It didn't work unless I'd opened the desktop version of 1Password, it still didn't open and fill.

So I removed the extension. I then decided to give it another try. The extension shows up on Firefox. But now it has a little lock on the icon. The problem is that clicking on the icon doesn't open anything! I've rebooted the computer, and only reinstalled the 1Password extension. The same problem occurs, then, without clicking on the problematic icon, I reboot the computer again. It hasn't helped.

PROBLEM TWO: I'm having an additional problem with extensions. When I click on the extension for Pocket (for instance), the program opens, but fails to recognize that I have a paid subscription, asking me to upgrade. This is true for other sites I have subscriptions to, limiting me using the "free" version, which limits what I can open as well as what I can save.

It sounds unbelievable, but that's what's happened to me. I'm using enhanced tracking protection for all sites. Macbook Pro ; Catalina OS 10.15.7 (19H15) - most recent version Max OS

I appreciate any help you can give me. This is way over my head! I've tried everything I can think of, except for uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox.

Firefox has been having this on-again, off again problem with printing pages from the Net. It was doing this a couple of months ago for about a month (!!!) and then evidently fixed itself long after I tried all the Troubleshooting suggestions ( re-booting Firefox, emptying the cache, going into Firefox's print.print command center to try to fix things), none of which worked. And now it's doing it again. And yes, I've already tried all the Troubleshooting suggestions all over again, and nothing from any of that is working. Now, I use Amazon and PayPal a lot, so this is especially aggravating. Here is what is happening:

 On a webpage, I'll tap the Print icon on the page. I then have to wait about 1 minute and 30 seconds for the pop-up Print command window to appear. After tapping the Print button on the pop-up window, I then have to wait another 30 seconds for the printer to finally get the message to start printing. It does this every single time I want to print anything, and it doesn't seem to matter what internet page I'm on.
 It's not the printer (A Brother MFC-J485DW). I've tried using another browser for some of this and the other browser (Safari, in this case) works fine with the print commands and there's no delay.
Is it my operating system?  MacOS Sierra 10.12.6.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
