On FoxNews.com, some articles include a section at the bottom for user comments. First-level comments frequently receive additional second- and third-level comments.

First-level comments are working fine, but lower-level comments are partially obliterated with a string of black diamonds with question marks �?U��N�@?�.

This is not an issue when I use Safari, but it is on Firefox.

Hello dear Mozilla community!

I've faced an issue with search engines configuration for Firefox on macOS. I'm doing the following:

  1. Removing all but one One-Click Search Engines, leaving only one engine in the list (currently my preference is DuckDuckGo): https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-41-395a2a.png or https://imgur.com/DKqvzZ9
  2. When I type search request in the address bar I'm seeing nice and clean search suggestions from Search Provider of my choice: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-13-a8d46c.png or https://imgur.com/a/slivHlF
  3. Close Firefox
  4. (not sure what other conditions needed)
  5. Open Firefox
  6. When typing search request in the address bar I see that Amazon and Ebay options are back and a suggestion line "This time, search with ..." as added by firefox: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-02-4a25db.png or https://imgur.com/vjq0NCf
  7. In the preference I see that those two searches (Ebay and Amazon) were automatically re-added to One-Click Search Engines: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-23-91dd1d.png or https://imgur.com/ibnlzLS

That issue is happening to me across different versions of firefox and isn't new. I've been seeing it for a few month hoping that to resolve in a newer versions. But as of right now I'm on 82.0.3 (64-bit) and the issue is still there.

It's a bit annoying as I have to my preferences literally every time I need to restart Firefox (which is especially annoying to do right after restarting FF to switch to a newer version).

Any suggestions and help is welcome!

Best regards, Serhii.

I updated my PC from Windows 7 to Windows 10 a few days ago. (Firefox-Version 82.0.3 (64-Bit)) After i did this Firefox seems to refuse to save any login data. I have set www.google.de as the starting page. Every time I open Firefox I first have to consent, that cookies are saved (Firefox also doesn't save this consent). Then my google accounts are not logged in. This problem is present on every page I have login data to (youtube, facebook etc.) I can login to all of this sites. But when I close Firefox for more then 5 seconds it all starts again. I have read and made all the steps from the mozilla support page but that doen't change anything. The problem keeps reappearing. Now I need your help please.

Hello!

I'm getting an error message from Firefox whenever I try to open it that my profile is missing or cannot be accessed (see attached image).

I have tried everything from the help articles so far, and nothing worked. I deleted the profiles.ini file, I deleted the entire Firefox folder under Application Support, I have deleted Firefox and reinstalled it. None of that worked.

Even when I try to create/delete/save my profile over the Terminal, I get the attached error message.

I love using Firefox, but I simply cannot use it this way. No matter if I use the default, developers or nightly version.

If anyone has an idea how I could fix the issue I would be incredibly thankful.

Thank you already in advance for your help!

Hello,

I have the following query. I have two certificates from infoNotary with which I am using for work. One private and one business certificate. In Firefox "privacy and security " options I have put the check to" ask me every time " which certificate to use when I am login into different pages that require it. When I log in a site for example the ministry of finance website, I am not getting the drop down menu to select which certificate I can use. This occurred after the latest firefox update. In order to use this options I am forced in Privacy and Security options -> cookies and site data to check the " delete cookies when firefox is closed." Only then when I restart Firefox I am getting the option to choose which certificate I want to use. This is an inconvenience for me, as whenever I log into a site I am pushed to agree and accept cookies and data. I want to be able to automatically accept cookies after the first acceptance and still be prompted to select which certificate I would like to use.

i Totally agree with this now closed post: I just returned to Firefox due to high level hacker threats & identity theft basically I'm still battling,so I have to have all Social Media in Containers from now on & can't use other browsers w/o containers, so I get it all setup & had my sync on & the containers start acting up, so I see a suggestion to just simply refresh it, oh yea, that solves most problems, NO IT CAUSES MORE THAN IT SOLVES! Now my Lastpass pw mgr, can't get clipboard permission cause the page just comes up blank,when I try to copy/paste a pw, to sign into sync even, I had to past from outside using another browser & don't have containers on it, Brave should catch up to this, cause Chrome,clearly doesn't have containers, so I'm done using it & now w/o Firefox working right I'm screwed, it's so aggravating, Just when I thought firefox was doing good again, nope, you're back on my shitlist. I'm pissed just like this guy! I got my bookmarks & think I got the sync working but you shouldn't suggest refresh to fix issues, now how do I get my lastpass working? cause I have pop up blockers disabled & the permission page for firefox won't come up, just a blank page every time I try to copy a pw to paste in, manually, ugh, I hate this!

I stupidly accepted the Firefox suggestion to refresh my browser and everything i worked so hard for is gone. Its going to take me forever to FIX what your stupid site has screwed up. YOU REALLY OUGHT TO TELL PEOPLE IF YOU USE THIS YOUR GOING TO BE SCREWED

So I thought I'd just delete it and start over but even that has so many steps I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR THIS STUPID CRAP AND I REALLY HATE FIREFOX FOR SCREWING UP MY COMPUTER AND MY DAY

I AM SOOOOOOOO SCREWED - all my bookmarks I HATE YOU I HATE FIREFOX I CAME TO YOUR SITE THINKING IT WOULD BE SAFE AND YOU HAVE DESTROYED EVERYTHING

I SEE in another thread about deleting firefox and creating another profile and about 10 million other steps i don't know how to do but if I close firefox as you said then i can see your frigging directions I HATE YOU

Modified February 16, 2016 at 10:39:48 AM PST by KC Chosen solution

I understand that you're frustrated, but it only takes a couple minutes to copy the files. Take it step by step. Do not delete anything, that will only make it worse. Do not use Windows' system restore feature, that may make it totally irreversible.

In another thread (https://support.mozilla.org/questions/1098179) you said the steps I posted were not clear. Where did you run into problems? Read this answer in context
