I'm using Firefox 78.0.2 on Windows 10 Pro build 19041.388 Bootcamped on a MacBook Pro. Every time there is a Firefox upgrade available, it downloads but then gives an error message "Update Failed", requiring a manual download and install. What can I do to automate the update installs? Thank you.

Hi everybody,

Is there a way to force a website to always open in a designated container?

E.g.: I would like Netflix (and other websites that use Widevine) to always use their own container for privacy reasons.

Thank you all for your support.

I'm using Firefox 78.0.2 and i keep getting notices to upgrade. But the last time I upgraded, Firefox changed the locations of my tabs from below the address bar to above the address bar and also changed the behavior of the address bar. It took me a couple of weeks to find the answers and get things back the way they were. I don't want to upgrade Firefox because I have no idea what it might change this time. Is there a way to keep Firefox from sending me upgrade notices when I don't want them?

I have just purchased a new iMac. The retailer instakked all myold software, including Firefox. When I opened Firefox I found a number of bookmarks for companies with which I no longer have any deakings, and I tried to delete them, following the proceedures in Firefox Help. But it didn't work, either way. Can anyone tell me how to get rid of these annoying bookmarks?

Last night firefox crashed but I just shut down my computer. Now today for the entire day firefox keeps crashing just after just a few minutes, regardless of what I am doing (youtube video, staring at google homepage, in firefox settings).

I read articles suggesting solutions. These are the things I have done to try and fix the problem but they didn't work:

1) I restarted my computer (shut down last night). 2) Performed the sfc scannow function, but found no corruption. 3) Did a Norton quickscan, then a Norton full scan (stopped after 700,000 files), no viruses. 4) Checked my display drivers, both were up to date (Intel and AMD). 5) Checked my network adapters, both were up to date (Intel, Realtek). 6) No Windows updates. 7) Firefox is up to date. 8) Tried safe mode, still crashed. 9) Refreshed firefox, still crashed.

I attached a list of my crash reports, I submitted them just now (didn't realize they didn't submit). I screenshotted it because I thought firefox would crash before I could copy them all. If needed, I can paste them one by one.

I downloaded Chrome, which I'm using right now and it isn't crashing like firefox. However, when I had firefox open at the same time, firefox crashed and caused Chrome to crash as well..

Any help is appreciated. I prefer to continue using firefox because I'm used to it and it has all my saved passwords. I'm scared of reinstalling firefox and losing my saved passwords.

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.
  2. I've tried a new profile with the same installation - 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

Does anyone have any idea before I start a new user account?

I'm running Firefox 78.0.2 on a desktop system with Linux Mint 19.3 OS. I'm using Blackboard (online training hosting service) and, at one point, I clicked on a link "Share screen". The window in the attached image popped up. However, I decided I didn't want to actually share my screen. I found absolutely NO way to get rid of this pop-up UNLESS I actually selected "Allow" or "Don't Allow". I tried clicking somewhere else on the screen, clicking outside of Firefox to take the focus off of it, opening another program altogether, clicking on the various icons next to the address bar. Nothing worked. The only work-around I found was to select "Don't Allow", then manually click on the new icon, and "X" next to "Block screen sharing". Is this a bug? Or can I put in a feature request to put a "X" (close window) on this so that I can make it go away without having to jump through those hoops? Thanks.

I am using Firefox version 78.0.2 on Mac OS X Catalina 10.15.5, I have 2 external monitors, this error only happens when Firefox is on one of the external monitors.

I have many bookmarks that I keep in folders in the bookmarks bar, when I click the bookmarks bar folder for the section that I would like to access the drop down list for the bookmarks in that folder shows up either on the main screen of my Mac or the other external monitor. There doesn't seem to be any specific occurrence that makes it show up on one screen of the other. I have tried to reset/refresh Firefox already as well to no avail. How do I get the menu to go back to show up under the folder that I click on?

Attached are 2 photos one where I am clicking on the "Weather" folder in the bookmarks bar and another showing the second desktop where the menu is showing.

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.

The problem: When I try to watch video in firefox, it hitches up. The audio keeps playing fine but it'll freeze up on an frame for ~10 seconds then jump to where the audio is at and freeze again. On lower quality videos, it's relatively better but there's still choppy to the point of unwatchable. Chrome and Edge can both play the higher quality videos with 0 problems.

Things I've tried: Restarting the computer Reinstalling Firefox "Refreshing" Firefox Clearing my cache Launching Firefox in safe mode Changing media.benchmark.vp9.fps Reinstalling my graphics drivers Turning accelerated processing off Decreasing the content processing limit Probably some other stuff I'm forgetting at the moment

I've tried to switch over to firefox multiple times over the last year or so, and every time I have this issue and eventually just give in and go back to chrome. I'm on Windows 10 on an old-ish laptop, not sure if that helps.

Hi - I'm having an issue with Firefox, well its been ongoing for some weeks but just getting around to it..

My problem is that Firefow will not download files. I have tried the trouble shooting steps and its not a firewall issue because my other browsers will download - as a developer I have all the major browsers installed.

Also I changed the settings to have Firefox request the download folder for each downlod - but it doesn't. Anyway I am about to reinstall will post back then.

Maybe should have done that first.
