Hi guys, Firefox Update was made end of August, then I remember the PC was running slower for 2 days but then all the bookmarks and passwords just disapeared - also the toolbar with all saved bookmarks. How is this possible - PC is running normal now. I was not doing any resets or something like that. Thanks for helping

Hi, my firefox doesn't seem to want to launch from the start menu for some reason (when I click it the start menu closes but Firefox does not open and isn't running in the background), however the shortcut that is created on the desktop seems to launch firefox perfectly well. However, when I do open firefox, it has a blank default icon as if its a random program. Could someone help me? This issue is getting quite annoying and tedious and I've had to switch to edge for a while now. I've been using Firefox about a year now and this hasn't happened before.

Steps I've taken:

  • Uninstalled and reinstalled firefox, deleted profile data too
  • Restarted PC

Here is a screenshot of what my icon in the taskbar looks like: https://i.imgur.com/d8uAq8a.png

I am a university professor. All of my classes use Canvas software. After last week's Firefox update, none of the embedded figures on my course pages appear - only their file name. They are showing up just fine in Chrome, so I know that the problem is somehow connected to Firefox. They also disappeared immediately after the last update.

My students and I need to be able to see the images...and I don't want to uses Chrome. I would like to know how to either return Firefox to its previous version or have the new version somehow corrected so that it gets along with Canvas.

Thank you.

When going to site using saved login message " View all saved Logins " can be seen. If sombody else is using the system other than myself this will allow all login and password to be viewed for all sites. Other person could be wife or hacker or other. I cannot see that my system is secure when using Firefox. For me to be able to view all logins is a bonus but should NOT be available to just anyone who may use the system. Any comment please?

I have a website which makes ajax requests to some endpoints which can take more than a minute (depending on how busy the server might be). In the recent version of firefox (81), it seems like after about a minute, the request appears to time out without an error message. I checked against other browsers and none seem to have the same issue.

Was this behavior expected out of version 81? I don't see anything in the release notes about this kind of change.

I have a custom add-on that I'm working on for my team. It's hosted internally on a server signed by our company's internal CA. The add-on is signed by Mozilla, but not hosted on AMO.

I am on the latest version of Fedora running Firefox 81.0. In the browser console I get this error relating to the URL for the addon when I tell Firefox to check for updates: "Certificate issuer is not built-in".

I have the company CA installed and when I navigate to the site in the browser, Firefox recognizes the cert. I've done some reading on the subject and seen several threads about it. I've tried a few things already, but most of the threads where a couple of years old.

I'm asking the question here hoping to figure out what the current state of the problem is and which settings I should tweak to have it trust the company CA or what my options are.

Thank you in advance for any support on the issue.

I am using tab-on-bottom code in userChrome.css that I got from the web.

1. There is a highlight feature of the tabs. A mouse-over will do a subtle enhancement of the top portion of the line delineating of the tab. 2. The active tab has a blue bar at the top portion of the line delineating the tab.

I want both to go away. I have code to highlight the background color of the active tab and need no other highlight function.

The userChrome.css is below.

I'm using a "feature" in Firefox that allows me to select my Firefox profile on startup (by adding -ProfileManager to the target value). This way I can choose between my "home" aka "default-release" and "work" profiles.

Now my issue is that every time I open my work (non-default) profile, I have to login to services like Gmail all over again! Firefox won't save my login information for the work profile similar to the default-release profile. I have back-up and sync set-up on both profiles. So why does this happen?
