I have recently (today) installed a device (Mini Wireless USB adapter) on my desktop computer. I am now connected to my ISP modem wirelessly. I have been using Firefox as my browser for many years (ten?) and have not had a problem until today. When I attempt to go to a web site I get a notice that says: "Unable to find the proxy server. Firefox is configured to use a proxy server that can't be found. Check the proxy settings to sure they are correct. Check to make sure your computer has a working network connection. If your computer or network is protected by firewall or proxy make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the web."

I am able to get to any web site I choose when using another browser. I am also receiving my emails, and able to send emails. So I know the computer has a working network connection. When I have visited the Mozilla support site (having to use another browser) I see advice that shows opening the Settings page and getting to the Proxy settings. When I open my "Settings" page from the menu on the Firefox home page upper banner I do not see any option to get the Proxy settings. How do I access the Proxy settings page? Or how do I access the Firewall settings? Don't forget, I cannot open any web page from Firefox.

I just had to clean install Firefox after having problems. I've pretty much set it up how I want it, except when I quit Firefox and then re-open it all the tabs come back. Which I don't want. The box in the settings page for opening with previous session is unchecked. What else am I missing? I re-started my computer just in case that was an issue but the problem continues. Thanks

Just refreshed a page by hitting ctrl + r twice, which bypasses safety net, and lost my whole draft for post I wanted to make. Is there a way to disable this "convenient feature" so this doesn't ruin my day further?

I wanted to make a lengthy post on a website today, but I accidentally hit CTRL + R twice which bypassed the "This page is asking you to confirm that you want to leave — information you’ve entered may not be saved." safety net. Is there a way to deliberately disable any and all refresh shortcuts and buttons when a safety net shows up, so my buttery fingers don't ruin my day to it's absolute maximum?

I want safety nets to be deliberately annoying.

For some reason any time I try to access Yahoo I am automatically differed to the German site. Even if I manually enter yahoo.com I am deferred to "de.yahoo.com/?p=us". On other browsers there is no such issue.

I can't download anything anymore. I get the "failed" message. I see in support questons that this has been going on for a long time even though there have been repeated "fixes" reported. I've used Firefox for a long time and really prefer it, but I'm having to change to Chrome to be able to complete my work.

Got a problem on two separate computers: Mozilla Crash Reporter keeps popping up when Firefox is not even running. I'm guessing that my antivirus avast is interfering with the update service. I'm I right or wrong? Otherwise, does anyone know how to interpret this? This is the report:

So to cut it short, i have an issue with not just firefox but almost all other browsers too. I have tried Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Edge. Both Firefox and Chrome will instantly close when i open them. As in, the window will open and immediately close after barely half a second. This has happened with Chrome and Firefox, yet Opera and Edge dont seem to have this issue. I am a Firefox user normally so this does make it a little annoying. Any ideas on why that is?

I use a MacBook Pro. I recently created a new profile for Firefox (for work purposes) and set it as the default profile, because I'm trying to get off Chrome entirely. The preexisting no-longer-default profile contained all my "personal" data - bookmarks, extensions, etc. Continued using both profiles for about a week with no issues. Last night my MacBook updated and when I reopened Firefox, the new default profile was fine, but when I went into about:profiles and launched the secondary profile in a new browser, it was completely empty - no history, no bookmarks, no extensions, nothing. That's at least a year's worth of data completely gone. I've looked through support articles and past folks' questions and am just completely lost as to how to restore it or what went wrong. If it's not possible to restore that data, how can I at least prevent this from happening again? I've very much lost trust in Firefox profiles because of this. Help please?
