Hi all! I know this isn't the first time you've heard this... I've been fighting with this master password issue since the middle of July and I've exhausted all the options I'm aware of. I have tried to reset my password several times but the ""Master Password Box "" keeps popping up (even while typing this) and none of my previous nor current passwords open it and it's required before i can login to access any of my data and passwords etc.. Which i do not know what the password is anymore. I did know it bc i typed it in several times a day.... either Microsoft update or Mozz update happened and that password is useless now and i can not afford to lose this information!!! As stated, I'm losing biz as i type PLUS i can't pay my bills until I get back into my data. My IPhone and iPad and other devices are all caught up in this mess as well. I feel absolutely hopeless! One would think if you donate several hundred $ a year to Mozz and you'd think there would be some sort priority support for Donors. My other devices can't sign in either... Ive tried most everything I've seen in support and nothing seems to work. I feel as though the more i mess with it the deeper I'm sinking! I have a back up that is from 2018 which gaps the last 2 years of data and PW.. I Still have my old recovery key password that didn't work in the beginning when all of this happened, nor does windows master password work. I have everything backed up on a hard drive as well but I haven't gone down that road yet. I've been at this infinite loop for over a week now and I need some serious help please!!

Hi! I'm currently running Firefox on Ubuntu. Since, 90% of my saved passwords were done on Chrome browser on my smartphone, I wish to import it to Firefox. To do so, I downloaded Chromium browser and logged in with my Google account so my saved passwords could be synced to it. Now, when I run the import wizard on Firefox, I get the message No program that contain bookmarks, history or password data could be found. This basically means that either Firefox's import wizard cannot find Chromium on Linux or Chromium isn't supported. It could also mean a technical issue I'm not aware of.

Kindly assist. Thanks!

I made a new profile and was able to re-create the same bug in safe mode just to be sure. Anytime I try to open a swf file, firefox will not open it but instead ask what I should do with the file, over and over again. I have properly installed flash in the $MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH directory that firefox looks for; if I go to the plugins section, it shows adobe flash. I also have the ability to play flash files on websites, just not locally. On the profile I'm using to reproduce the error, the http_https_only tag in about:config is set to 'false', so [[this|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1172126]] is irrelevant. I made sure that firefox is indeed what is set to open these types of files via the xdg specifications that firefox searches for when looking what to open a file with via xdg-mime (firefox uses xdg-open on the linux version to see what to open with): xdg-mime default firefox.desktop application/x-shockwave-flash In $HOME/.config/mimeapps.list, it is properly listed in the line applications/x-shockwave-flash=firefox.desktop Firefox does have a .desktop file setup in /usr/share/applications, and xdg-mime does recognize firefox as the app to open swf files. I am able to open other types of files locally such as videos. Going to about:preferences and setting firefox to open swf files makes an infinite loop of firefox opening new tabs that must be then terminated. I'm not sure if an update broke firefox, as I was previously able to open local swf files. Thanks.

After hooking up four devices to sync through Firefox, I ended up with a mess and a lot of irritation which I have not recovered from. That was six months ago. What I failed to understand is that there is no control of the direction of sync. I presumed that all would sync from my primary account computer. Wrong and truly a disaster because I had spent hours organizing thousands of bookmarks. An old computer with an old bookmarks setup (very disorganized) added its confused mess back into my attempt on the new computer to finally get organized. I still have not sorted through most of the mess.

So how in the hell does Sync actually and exactly work? Is there any directional flow? Or does it just mash the shared stuff together. How can I delete any bookmark file Sync has at Firefox server with exact knowledge of what I am doing? Why is this stuff so obscure? I exactly want to know how to ensure that Sync has no cache of obsolete material and exactly, if possible, to direct the flow....should I use only share a tab? one at a time?

I have a problem with using Firefox to view the GUI of my ASUS RT-AC86U router. One of the pages (the system log page) causes Firefox to crash within 2-3 seconds of viewing it. It doesn't happen in Microsoft Edge and it didn't happen in Firefox until yesterday. I have eliminated my antivirus as a possible cause by uninstalling it temporarily. I have also tried uninstalling Firefox, deleting all my personal folders, reinstalling it and testing it again before synchronising to my account, to eliminate any add-ons/extensions as being a possible cause. I don't know what else to try, so I'm open to suggestions.

(Maybe it is me - it usually is)

I have saved logins saved in FF. There is also a master password.

This problem is happening more and more:

I load FF and no "Enter master password" requester.

I start browsing. Eventually I get to a site which requires a log in.

NOTHING!

So I know FF has it saved - and password protected - but FF has decided to not ask me for the master password so I (or it) can then enter the saved details.

Today - being the last straw - I come here and (of course) this saved log in wasn't accessible. I fell back on the secondary system and logged in. FF asks me if I want to save this log in. (Maybe luckily) I said YES - but I am sure it is already saved - do I then get the "Enter master password" requester.

This is annoying as I have a few pages which I access very frequently password locked. It is annoying when I get to them - even tried reloading the page, if that will bring up the requester. It doesn't - FF won't/can't log in for me.

I really love the picture-in-picture feature. It made me not use Chrome and switch to Firefox. I've been using the picture-in-picture feature a lot and noticed that the pause button has stopped working. It definitely used to work when I first started using this feature. When I hover my mouse over it, it turns into a hand with a pointed finger, but clicking does nothing. The other two buttons, the X button and the "return" button work just fine.

Please help.

Firefox has been experiencing repeated issues that cause it to fail to load certain websites or portions of sites, often related to video playback. YouTube videos would attempt to load, never start playing, and eventually all of Firefox will crash. The same is now happening with other websites such as Amazon that seem to crash the browser just trying to bring them up. Not all of the sites are specifically video sites like YouTube but they often have embedded players. YouTube will load fine until you actually try to click on a video, browsing the homepage doesn't cause this issue.

Restarting Firefox in safe mode did not alleviate the issue, and Firefox is up to date.

If you go to Google Calendar and right click on an empty space Firefox consistently crashes.

  1. I've tried Firefox Safe Mode - still crashes.

  3. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox but keeping the profile - still crashes.
  4. I've tried a new user account in Windows 10 and new profile - no crashes.
  5. I've tried ``sfc /scannow`` - integrity is good.

It's hard to get crash details but the last one I could get is - https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/6e2515a4-86cc-4bde-9d4e-06b060200716#tab-details

I don't know if this is related to Firefox version 78.0.2 (64-bit) which automatically downloaded itself and installed after a Windows10 reboot about a week or two ago, but during that same time period I have no longer been able to download/save documents (e.g., PDFs) and videos (MP4s) from websites. All I get is a blue bar (with an exit button) that says "Opening <filename>.<ext>". See attached image. Since nothing happens, I have to click the exit button. Much of my effort at the computer has come to a standstill because I can no longer download items from websites. There is no option in the "Help" dropdown to reload and reinstall the current version, so I'm stuck.

By the way, are PNG images required or merely preferred for attachments?

Unwanted new behaviors in Bookmarks and Tools and especially in "new windows"

I don't know if this is related to Firefox version 78.0.2 (64-bit) which automatically downloaded itself and installed after a Windows10 reboot about a week or two ago, … (funda kabanzi)

I don't know if this is related to Firefox version 78.0.2 (64-bit) which automatically downloaded itself and installed after a Windows10 reboot about a week or two ago, but during that same time period I have had intolerable problems with new windows as well as unwelcome new behaviors with "not-new" windows passed from the previous version to the current version. All of the issues (at least those I've discovered so far) are noted on the attached image, so there's little point in repeating them here. The greatest problems are with new windows: issues A and B make new windows almost useless (without a lot of extra effort to work around the issues), and the fact that I can no longer add more tabs to a new window is simply intolerable. (If I attempt adding a tab, it somehow "locks" the window, and it cannot be exited or deleted without taking down Firefox.) The second problem is that at least some menu items in the "original" window(s) from the previous version no longer work correctly, if at all. The latter "if at all" (Tools|Page Info) is something I heavily depend upon because other browsers don't have such a tool. (I have not tried all of the other Tools to see if they misbehave, too.) To me, it's all part of what makes "full-featured Firefox" better than "crippled Chrome" (which touts speed but deliberately, for the sake of that speed, has restricted its features compared to Firefox). Unfortunately, there is no option in the "Help" dropdown to try reloading and reinstalling the current version (to see if that will fix the problems), so I'm stuck.

Just upgraded to latest version of Firefox v 78.0.2 (64 bit) and I've lost all my Bookmarks!

All I can find in Bookmarks are the pages I seem to have looked at in this version of Firefox and nothing else. Work my way through various suggestions in the Help section but I still can't find my Bookmarks, I hate to say this but it looks like I've overwritten th bookmarksfile and somehow deleted everything, but I know I didn't consciously do this.

I'd be eternally grateful if anybody could help me with this problem please.
