I can find no recent documentation on command line options for the Firefox Browser. All of the information on this appears to be out of date or just does not work any more (in the latest version June 2021). Is there any documentation on this anywhere that is correct for the current version of the browser? I am specifically trying to run firefox with command line options on Windows 10 but I do not see that that should make any difference. The only option I can get to work is starting firefox with a specific URL; even then I have to change the browser settings to get that to open a new window; because the browser settings override the command line option -new-window

For about a month, google products on firefox randomly stop working.

- I get the "Oops...error #001" in gmail, when i reload it just continues to get an error cycle until eventually it goes to network protocol error.

- Google search randomly does not work at all in the url/search bar, and once it doesn't work the tab is useless. Putting in another URL and hitting enter it appears to have loaded but of course nothing has changed.

- I have no extensions installed.

Referencing these threads: 1281774 1307368 1317055 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1333680 (I posted a reply to this thread, but I can't view it and the moderator has apparently closed it thinking this problem has gone away)

We can ascertain that NOTHING seems to help this condition. In fact these threads apply to me as Win 7 / 64 bit apply to me. This started probably about 1.5 years ago.

I too have this problem and yes, it is random. BUT once locked in with this condition, it may "get stuck" for another 5 attempts for the same link. BEST Example, I do surveys every Friday and Saturday night. I use my netscape (AOL) email account. At random, while clicking on the survey link the tab will come up blank and no matter what you do, you CANNOT get this tab to do ANYTHING. No reload, no clicking on a new bookmark, no clicking on home, or typing in the address bar and pressing enter on THAT particular tab. How often does it happen? Maybe 12 times a month (during survey time: maybe every other weekend).

One step further on this. My wife's account on the PC actually does this on a DAILY BASIS REPEATEDLY EVERY DAY when she opens FireFox. In her case, it can ONLY be solved by closing and reopening FireFox after waiting like...say...2 minutes after previously opening it? I have tried opening new tabs etc as mentioned above (including the old right clicky trick and using the "Open in new tab" function). Kinda silly when you have like 27 tabs of blankness. Considering it is her account on the Pc, ok, maybe the "refresh" function might work on her? BZZZT! Nope.

Current version. I can attest that a PC at my 2 jobs that both have Win 7 and at least one, if not both, have 64 bit versions and do NOT display this malady. Also, I did re-install FF about 2 years ago for some other problem. I just ran the troubleshooting more...no go. Per this lead, try https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/topic/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads-2647da03-1eea-4433-9aff-95f26a218cc0... and guess what? No such help . Anyone have have something to kill this bug?

I have had a single Firefox Account since 2018. I have updated through three primary email addresses: let's call them 1, 2 & 3.

July 2020 - I changed Firefox Account to primary email 2, and removed primary email 1.

August 2020 - I registered for Firefox Monitor. I added many "another email" (the maximum number, 10 I think) to be monitored : let's call them emails 4-13, and set "Send breach alerts to the affected email address".

December 2020 - I changed Firefox Account to primary email 3, and email 2 is my account secondary email.

April 2021 - I received an email to email 4 saying it was in a breach.

Today - on monitor.firefox.com it says I am not monitoring any emails except my primary email 3, and have not been in any breaches as pictured.

Therefore, there is a bug with monitor.firefox.com: - On the one hand, email 4 (and presumably 5-13) are all still being monitored. - But on the other hand, monitor.firefox.com states I am not monitoring any other emails.

Could a Mozilla dev please get in touch to look into this specific case?

A few months ago, probably after FF update, the "open with" stopped working, only download is possible.

Particularly, simple url links fail to "open with" including reading with firefox itself. I can not open PDFs, outer program links. Only a few PDF links are opened at specially crafted websites. Probably those are sites with on-site defined MIME or allowing the PDF contents being pre-cashed.

In all the other cases where the file being opened should be pre-downloaded with FF downloader, it fails to download. The same file is downloaded easily when choosing "save as"

I guess, the problem may be in the "downloader" part only, since other online contents are displayed, i.e. streamed, or stored in cache without problems.

In previous versions of Firefox I was able to save items in local storage in one HTML file and read them back in another HTML file when both files were loaded from the same file system directory of the local machine.

Version 92 seems to have implemented a breaking change where separate local storage tables are created for pages loaded from the file system based on their file path - meaning a page can only access local storage items set from the same window location used to open the file from disk

As far as I can tell the change has not been mentioned in release notes , nor does it appear to be part of a bug or enhancement request filed on Bugzilla (that I was able to find in searching), nor are local page names entered as "sites" to allow management of their storage under security and privacy settings.

I have a workaround for my particular needs - rename a local system main page to something else, rename a setup page to the main page, make setup changes and store them from within the renamed setup page, then undo the file renames so the main page can load updated setup data, but t qhe phrase "ugly hack" comes to mind.

Before launching on a major rewrite in search of a better solution, or helping friends set up a node/express server on their devices, is there any way to re-enable sharing of local storage between HTML pages loaded from the file system?

Hello friend, I would like to make the title of inactive icons, as well as "File, Edit, View..." while as in the first screenshot attached, yet keeping the text of the right-click pop-out menu black with white background, as in the second screenshot. It seems that the 'background tab text color' controls both parameters. Maybe someone knows how to split them apart?

OS is Win7-x64, graphics Intel HD Graphics on Haswell pentium G3220 with latest available driver.

Since version 89.0 or 90.0 (not sure which) following webpage rendering issues appeared on my machine: - page loads ok, but when I scroll up/down with pageup/pagedown keys then some keystrokes are not followed by redraw, or redraw is partially blank (horizontally split - see attached screenshot). Subsequent keystrokes either have the same problem or are rendered correctly. - scrolling is only problematic with pageup/pagedown keys. Alternative methods (up/down keys, mousewheel, holding and dragging scrollbar or clicking above or beneath it) work ok. - I'm sure that version 89.0 or 88.0 didn't have this problem. Since then I haven't changed any about:config settings or updated graphics driver. Compositing was then and now set at WebRender (not WebRender (Software)). - I tried disabling hardware acceleration on version 92.0, but it hasn't solved issue, so I reverted this back.

Troubleshooting info is attached.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I want a toolbar button I can click on once that opens the Manage Bookmarks (Library) window. I want it to do the equivalent of Ctrl+Shift+O.

I'm completely aware of the Library icon, and the "Show your bookmarks" icon with the little star in the tray, but both of those require two clicks to open a separate Library window with Bookmarks selected. I once figured out how to do something similar with a bookmark to some place in About: but this opened a separate tab I then had to close and I want it to open a separate window.

I've used Firefox since at least 2007 or earlier and I still miss the little star icon (or was it a globe) that opened Organize Bookmarks. It's not laziness on my part, but it is over a decade of muscle memory I still haven't shaken. Besides, what was the advantage of making it harder to get to?

When you click on the “Bookmarks” tab and attempt to hover the curser over the desired link or folder, there is a substantial delay before this desired link highlights. In addition, the favicon associated with any links within the Bookmarks tab does not populate either during this lengthy delay. To sum up, there is substantial delay in being able to access one’s bookmarked links or folders with this latest version of 92.0. I would ask the Mozilla team to fix this matter as soon as possible. It’s very annoying. I am using the 64-bit version of 92.0 with Windows 7.

My youtube downloader addon suddenly disappeared. The little icon under the youtube video doesn't show any more. Used to work well. then suddenly didn't. In fact I had one tab open at a youtube vid and the downloader icon was there and working and at the same time I opened another tab by 'right click' and 'open in new tab' from the youtube list - to another youtube vid - and on that tab, that page, the downloader icon didn't show. And now I can't ever open a page where it'll show. So I installed a couple more downloader addons and they don't work either.

I've check all of them in addon manager and they all appear okay, enabled, enabled in private windows, all okay.
