Yesterday I tried to log in to my Yahoo account as usual, via Firefox. The tab always says AT&T Yahoo log in and then I can see my e-mails. This time the screen was blank. I can log in from Google Chrome and Safari but I want to us Firefox because I think it is safer. A couple of days ago, I logged out of my e-mail but kept Firefox open, in sleep mode. I think something hacked Firefox. I need help restoring it!!

Hi. I reset my Windows 10 last night to fix a glitch (it didn't fix it) and I suddenly cannot see/upload my JPG files online with Firefox. For example, if I click to post a picture to my Tweet, only the PNGs in the folder will appear, despite there being JPGs in it as well. This only happens with Firefox, as Edge and Chrome show/make them available just fine, and they show up on my PC normally. I was told to reinstall Firefox, which I did, but they still don't show up.

How do I fix this?

Dear mozilla community,

I cannot get firefox to start, and I need help to troubleshoot this. What I already did:

  • remove and reinstall (apt)
  • rename ~/.mozilla to trigger recreation
  • start using the command line
  • start in safe mode

The only symptoms are <defunct> processes (see screenshot).

I need more information to find out what went wrong. Where can I find this?

  • apt
  • firefox_78.0+build2-0ubuntu0.16.04.1~mt1_amd64.deb

When I try to attach a file to an email send in Gmail, nothing happens. The upload bar shows no progress and the email sits in the draft folder. The size of the file has no bearing on the problem. I've tried running in Safe Mode and even did a clean reinstall but it didn't help. The problem does not occur with the same accounts in Chrome or Opera; only in Firefox. I've tried everything recommended here, but nothing helped.

FF 77.0.1 W10.

I get this message on one specific website, every time I visit. It happens on other pages, but not continually, and not regularly.

Is there a remedy? Updated recently and do not want to have to reset or do anything drastic.

Asked this two other times, but I tagged on to previous conversations. Unfortunately, I did not get the usual prompt response.

Thank you.

Since upgrading to 77.0.1 (macOS) i cannot reliably pull up any websites. If I disable/enable the proxy settings, or reload the proxy (using automatic WTAD), it will sometimes work for a few sites, before dying again. Any fixes?

EDIT: Clarify: It worked fine with 75. And Chrome and Safari both work, either "using system settings" or entering the WTAD address for auto proxy config.

I have a strobe sensitivity and visual motion sensitivity, so the default Firefox settings aren't safe for me.

(For example, the default settings have flashingcursors, autoscroll, smooth scrolling, autoplay enabled, no ad blocker installed, etc.)

I can't use a new profile unless I can copy over all my existing safety and accessibility fixes. Besides about:preferences, that includes a number of fixes to about:config, userChrome.css, userContent.css, and a number of add-ons.

I am not quite sure what the Autoconfig can do, or how to set it up, but I understand I would need to manually track down and copy all my safety settings, which isn't even possible with the current about:config. And wasn't practical with the old one.

Anyway, trying to follow debugging instructions, which often involve creating new profiles, and then copying everything to these profiles so I can test them relatively safely, has gradually screwed up my Firefox installation. A lot of freezes, the url bar going unresponsive, etc.

Maybe if I can sync to a dummy location and then back I can fix this. I don't know what else I can do.

Since I updated to 77.0.1 firefox has for unknown reason has concluded that there is a system administrator which has disabled updates. It says so in setting (topleft) and in about firefox (instead of update button). I have been able to change all other settings that I know of. I have also refreshed the browser once, disabled all addons once, and deinstalled it to reinstall the latest version once.

Is there a solution for this bug?

Today when I started Firefox it auto-updated to version 77, and all web-pages looked like a mess of weird symbols like the ones in the screenshot I attached.

I tried disabling all addons and plugins, and some other stuff but nothing worked.

So I downgraded to 76.0.1 and everything works fine, it's definetly a problem with version 77.

I guess I won't be updating until I know this problem was adressed.
