At OS (Windows10) startup, Firefox launches several (3-5) blank, large windows then immediately close themselves. Then, when I launch Firefox intentionally, gives back an error screen saying it could not reproduce the previous session. I tried turning off (false) toolkit.winRegisterApplicationRestart and also is manually closing all tabs before shutting off. What else can I do?

Hi

Ok so it use to be when I would select a file like say a PDF to download I would get a pop up (Still do and set that way to ask what I desire to do with the file) and there were 2 choices

Open with (Select program to open with) Save to

But I noticed this tonight now I have a 3rd option on top that is

Open in Firefox

No matter what I try it always reverts back now to OPEN IN FIREFOX for each file where as before it use to remember the last option I had selected which is what I prefer as usually I want to save the file rather then open it.

Is there any way to force firefox to remember the last choice I made rather then reverting all the time to open in firefox like it is doing right now?

Posted comments on a blog (specifically Mail Online Peter Hitchen' Blog) frequently, but not always, fail to appear. Moderation can be excluded on the evidence that repeating the same comment later will sometimes succeed. Other people are clearly affected since there are sometimes complaints. I have the impression that comments made during 'office hours' are more likely to get through, but this by no means guarantees success. The problem seems to have got worse lately, though it was occassionaly evident from the beginning (3 or 4 months ago when I started to contribute).

 This could of course be entirely the fault of the blog side of the intercourse, but is there anything I can do on the hither side, as a user of Firefox, to mitigate or solve this problem?

After upgrading to firefox 79.0 for 32-bit debian linux (from firefox 78.0.2), I've noticed firefox now goes away when the PC is put to sleep and see this error message in logs (1 msg/tab):

   Exiting due to channel error.

Putting my PC to sleep means withdrawing the default route (so only devices on my local network are accessible) and running a screensaver.

Are there any suggestions for fixing this (minor) annoyance? It never happened with the previous firefox 78.0.2.

thanks!

I have just had latest update install for mozilla firefox. Now my screen is breaking up into black rectangles and is not rendering properly. I had this problem but last update seem to fix it. I can't tell you how utterlydepressing this is. I don't have any knowledge to fix it and if it goes back to how it was permanently then, much as I love firefox I'm dumping it. Unless there is a solution. It would be nice to roll back the update and also choose not to install any in future. god's teeth I'm on windows 10 if that makes a difference.

When using voice.google.com in Firefox the recipient can't hear me at all. This problem is intermittent. After I've restarted my Mac, things seem to work fine for a while. Then, after a while, the recipient can't hear me when I make a call.

I've given Firefox permission for google to use the internal microphone. The mic symbol flashes red. Another issue: the flashing red mic keeps flashing even after the phone call is ended.

I've tried clearing out cookies/cache, closing/reopening the page, closing/reopening the browser.

I've tried google voice in Chrome. I was not mute in that call. Thanks for any help.

So I'm using Firefox Browser Developer edition.

Ever since it updated to version 80.0b1 (64-bit), the dialog kind of pop-ups or tooltips or however they're called, are not showing properly, on sites like Facebook and other forums I use.

As you can see in the image, if you're typing on the text field, when you click the Emote / Emoji button, the pop-up window should be shown right below the text field, however ever since the update, they appear at the top of the page, making it impossible to use if the post I'm commenting on is deeper in the page.

It's really annoying, and that's just an example, but there are many other dialog kind of windows that are behaving similarly.

Deactivating add-ons didn't help.

This wasn't a problem before the update. Is this gonna get fixed? What is affecting its proper behavior? I'd appreciate any help.

This one thing makes we simply switch to a different browser. Firefox, downloads and installs updates in the background. OK. It needs a browser restart to be able to setup the update. Not great but OK. But suddenly it would completely disable the user from not using the browser until an update is performed (See Image). But why? Not OK!

I am totally fine with the browser needing a restart to finish update. But why wouldn't Firefox not let me decide when I want that. Until I am ready let me use the browser. I really wish they don't freeze the browser like that.

Is there someone looking to address this issue in a future version? Is this only happening to me?

Over the past couple of months I have been noticing an increasing trend for Firefox to not open links when I click them. I have a custom HTML homescreen that I use with my popular sites. They are all setup to open in new tabs using standard HTML coding from W3C; nothing fancy; I use the same page in all my browsers across all my devices, and the bones of the page are used on my work computer as well.

Sometimes, when I click one of the links, nothing happens. Sometimes, when I click one of the links, a new tab opens with no URL. Sometimes, when I click one of the links, a new tab opens with the URL in the URL bar, but it doesn't navigate. And sometimes, finally, when I click one of the links, a new tab opens and the page I was actually trying to get to appears.

This doesn't happen just on my homescreen. Sometimes, often in fact, this happens on Reddit. This happens on Autoblog. This happens on CNN.

I have refreshed Firefox. I have nuked my profile entirely and started anew. I have tried it both with and without my profile syncing. It happens in Safe Mode. It happens both on my personal desktop, and my personal laptop, which are configured identically from a software perspective.

This is super irritating. Please, help me Firefox Support Community, you're my only hope.

Hello, I decided to use your master password feature. I've written the password on paper for backup purpose. And everything worked fine for aprox. 1 month. But today to my surprise Firefox told me that master password is wrong. I've typed this password at least several times before (with success) so I was sure that I remember it correctly. Fortunately I had it on the paper. I checked it - and I realized, that I remembered it correctly. So I tried once again but I failed. I tried few times with the same result. I had the same password also for different site. So I logged on that site - with success. So my keyboard seems to work correctly. I didn't change master password in Firefox. At least I am not aware of that. It was unchanged for whole period I used this feature, as I wrote it wasn't long. Fortunately I have all important passwords saved on the paper so I decided to reset my Firefox Master password. It is possible that I've lost less important passwords but I can reset them because I still have access to my most important data. I do not need any help. And I am aware that I could made mistake of any type. But I decided to report that because there is also a chance that this is Firefox error so you should be aware of my case.
