Youtube - schrodinger's account: behaves as both logged in and not at the same time - fresh install changes nothing

The below issue is only present on firefox and no other browser.

My google account is active, and I have no problem with other google sites like Gmail or Drive, but on youtube the behavior is inconsistent. In the upper right corner my user icon shows but the account menu items don't drop down. Further, a message on the left sidebar tells me to "sign in to like videos, comment, and subscribe." Even more oddly, I can still unlike videos or unsubscribe to channels, but I am unable to like or subscribe. I can also access private playlists available only within my account and remove videos, but not add them. It's bizarre.

Anyway, I troubleshot this to no avail in the following order: 1) disable my addons - failed 2) reopen in safe mode - failed 3) uninstalled addons - failed 4) cleared all history/cookies/etc. - failed 5) restored defaults to all settings and configurations - failed 6) refreshed/reinstalled the application - failed and finally 7) uninstalled firefox, deleted data in program files, program files (x86), %appdata%/roaming > installed newest firefox. The installation contained none of my prior data and looked entirely blank, but it too failed.

Having tried all this, youtube's behavior is identical to before the clean reinstall. The only thing I haven't tried is to fully reformat my entire computer. I understand this account problem is highly specific, but any troubleshooting step I missed before might be the key. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

Iam about ready to give up on Firefox. My computer grinds to a halt after letting firefox idle. I have did al the suggestions to make changes in the services. It seems like the tabs I have open all start to slow down. You can see it in the task manager. Never had this problem before Windows 10 or at some point along the way with 10 it started. I have reloaded and did all the suggestions. But leave it sit and the disk fills up. Also it don't happen with Crome so I doubt it is my computer

Also like right now I have 5 tabs open but you go in task manager it says there are 12 opened?? I cant be the only one that has the problem.

I am looking for a solution to automate Firefox thorough an external process. I thought I could do this with Autohotkey library, Chrome dev tools and Firefox in debug mode but I have been advised its not secure nor private.

So I am wondering is there way to send/receive JS code or events to Firefox through another process such as Autohotkey or a windows program, Why?

  • Get URL of current tab
  • Set URL of current tab to
  • Launch bookmarklets (Not bookmarks)

I have to be able to do this on the keyboard not through Firefox UI. Thanks :)

Firefox was updated last night on my laptop. After the install it started for several seconds then shut down. Every time I tried to start it it did the same. I used the troubleshooting page when it eventually did load which recommended clearing the cache and refreshing Firefox. Having done a refresh before I was surprised to see that there was no Old profile folder (or whatever it's called). After this I tried to start Firefox and received the error message "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessable. It was now impossible to start Firefox as all I got was the same message. I thought something had gone wrong with the update, or refresh, so decided to uninstall, then reinstall. This did not solve the problem either. I am now stuck without Firefox on my laptop. OS is Windows 10pro version 2004.

More of an FYI rather than a question.

The Google Cloud Console (console.cloud.google.com) navigation menu has been unresponsive in Firefox for two days now. I tested this on both my MacBook Pro and my Windows PC. I logged in on a Chromium browser, the new Edge, and the menu works. I don't have Chrome installed on either my PC or my Mac, but I assume it works.

Not sure if this is a Firefox issue or a Google issue. Basic things like clearing history and cookies didn't help.

About 3 weeks ago, I started using the Windows Mail App as my email client. Every time I try to click on an email hyperlink within the body of an email, it opens the link minimized in Firefox. I then have to go to the task bar, click on the Firefox icon to maximize and then view the link.

Prior to this, I was using Outlook as my email client. I never had this issue when using Outlook. I would simply click on a hyperlink within the body of an email, and it would automatically populate a maximized and ready to be viewed tab in Firefox.

I tried to reach out to Windows support, and of course, they are claiming this is a Firefox browser issue. They are stating that I have to tell Firefox the way HTM's are handled. However, I don't see such option in Firefox and as I explained, I never had to do this when using Outlook in conjunction with Firefox.

Thanks in advance for any help provided. FYI - if it is of any help, I am running the latest version of Windows 10, and the latest version of the Firefox browser (80.0.1).

Until recently, whenever I would drag & drop a website address to my desktop from Firefox, it would create a shortcut with the website icon. But now it just creates a Firefox icon with a URL file and no option to change the icon. It is not a shortcut. Edge Chromium also does the same now. What happened? I am using Windows 10 v2004 64bit and Firefox 80.0.1 64bit. I have one other desktop and two laptops that still work as always and create an actual shortcut with the website icon.
