I have a full current installation of Firefox, after a struggle to get Bing off my system (Win11) I briefly got back to a personalized start page which had a large text "Firefox" heading and allowed me to add apps in small boxes and click to start an app. That page has disappeared and all I get is the ad referred to in the title. How can I replace the ad with the page I can load with app icons?

When I click on a link and say to open the link in a new tab, there's an issue.

The "Copy" in the context menu for that new tab is grayed out, i.e., cannot be selected.

So I have to go back to the origin page, and then re-select the new, just opened tab.

After I do that, the "Copy" is no longer grayed out.

Is this a bug?

If so, how do I report it?

Many thanks.

Several months ago, I couldn't log in to my Yahoo email accounts. For reasons yet to be explained, the two step verification ended up with a message saying they were having trouble, and try again later. No amount of waiting for later worked.

Maybe what I'm asking about now is unrelated, but yesterday I tried again. When I go here Yahoo | Mail, Weather, Search, Politics, News, Finance, Sports , and select either of the links

link text

I am directed here link text

link text

Instead of here (these came from Chrome)

Welcome to Yahoo Mail

https://i.postimg.cc/c45Qp77L/yahoo5.jpg

When I use that url in Firefox, I am taken here

link text

If I try to add a Yahoo account in that situation, it becomes clear that IS only for adding other other AT&T accounts.

I tried using about:support - Troubleshooting Information to clear the startup cache, and in safe mode, but it did not help.

I talked to ATT&T. They have been having these sorts of Firefox related problems for months now, which they have reported to Mozilla month ago (which confirms my past troubles as well), but for whatever reason Mozilla hasn't acted on it.

But here is the weird part for me. Aside from my main profile, I have a Firefox "basic" profile. It has no addons, but It has basically the same settings with my main profile, and, because it hasn't been updated in a while, I believe it has most of the same about:config tweaks as well.

In that profile, It 'Yahoo works '. What could constitute a difference between this starter profile and one that's running in safe mode to create this problem. Can you think of an about:config tweak that could be responsible for all this?

Do we have any idea whats causing this.

Have used Firefox for decades and suddenly it is having problems. If I surf around and have a few tabs open, some of them might crash. Firefox tries to restore them and sometimes it works and sometimes they just crash again immediately. I can go to Amazon and the page won't load completely so I can't do anything. If I try and close Firefox it won't close, it is frozen. And often, pages just load very slowly even though my internet connection is strong. This just started about a month or so ago. I have refreshed Firefox, updated it, and checked the systems on my computer. All my internal diagnostics returned "no issues." So it has to be the program.

Hello, I am currently facing a problem. Yesterday, I passed a message from https://firefox-source-docs.mozilla.org/setup/linux_build.html#building ---The official documentation for firefox on Linux compiles and installs a Linux system with aarch64 architecture on an Ubuntu host with x86 architecture. In fact, I only modified a file called ". mozconfig" and added the following information: "ac-add-options -- target=aarch64-linux-gnu mk-add-options MOZ-OBJDIR=@TOPSRCDIR@/obj-aarch64-linux mk-add-options AUTOCLOBBER=1". After compiling for a while, I obtained a folder called "obj-aarch64-linux". I used the command "file /obj-aarch64-linux/dist/bin/firefox" to check the properties of the knowability file as follows: " firefox: ELF 64 bit LSB shared object, ARM aarch64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked, interpreter/lib/ld Linux arch64. so. 1, for GNU/Linux 3.7.0, BuildID [md5/uuid]=6b1bede035b0d0bc9930d0d4d88c3c14, with debug_info, not stripped ”. I think I have completed cross compilation, so I compressed the "obj-aarch64-linux" folder on a USB drive and copied it to my aarch64 architecture development board. And when I tried to launch the browser on the development board using the "./obj-aarch64-linux/dist/bin/firefox" command, I received an error message saying "Couldn't load XPCOM". It is worth mentioning that firefox is installed by default on my development board, but I need to compile and install its source code, and local compilation cannot be achieved on my development board, so I made the above operation. So, I want to know how to solve this problem, or if there are any errors in my cross compilation process. Thank you for your help and look forward to your prompt reply.

I haven't downloaded anything recently (at least not that I know of) and for the past two days now every time I open up firefox, the search bar and images glitch white. You can't see what you're typing and when you go to images on google, all of it turns white. It happens to every website I go to, certain things turn white. Doesn't happen with Chrome, just Firefox. I've cleared the cache and data on it but that doesn't do anything. I've restarted my laptop and tried to make sure it wasn't my laptop that was the problem. I'm nervous to uninstall and reinstall cause I don't want to lose my passwords saved here.

Hello,

Relevant system referenced below:

MacBook Pro 2021 Mac OS 14.5 Firefox 126.0.1 (64-bit) Carbon Copy Cloner 6.1.11 (7673)

I have a case of vanishing bookmarks. I quit Firefox last evening with command-Q as I’ve done a thousand times before. When I launched it this morning I was greeted with Firefox with an empty Bookmarks Toolbar and “Getting started” message. I opened a Manage Bookmarks window and everything there was empty too. I found, as well, that all of my saved UIDs and passwords were gone except for three, two of which I haven’t used in months. Weird.

Next I opened Firefox Help and found information about Troubleshooting Mode; I restarted in troubleshooting mode but nothing had changed. After restarting in normal mode, I tried Restoring Bookmarks; I chose Manage Bookmarks from the dropdown and then clicked the button in the Library window. Restore showed only one file and it was created today with only 14 items. Selecting Choose File… showed Desktop with Old Firefox Data highlighted. In that folder was only w34y3u9y…628 folder. From there I selected bookmarkbackups and the only file there was bookmarks-2024-06-06_11…lz4, a file created at 3:33 today. I found the key4.db file and it was created at 3:33 today.


I have Carbon Copy Cloner and use it for a weekly backup to a remote SSD drive. There are a year's-worth or so of weekly backups on that device. I tried trashing Firefox and reinstalling it from last week’s backup. While this worked, it didn’t solve the issue; it was still like a fresh copy of Firefox with no bookmarks.

I’m hopeful that I can restore the bulk of the lost bookmarks from CCC but I have no clue as to which files/folders to restore and I don’t want to guess. If you think this is possible, please tell me which files or folders to replace. Should I delete the files to be replaced from the current system and if so where are they located? I’m comfortable using Terminal for basic purposes but need explicit directions for entering commands and navigating to locations or files.

Thanks for your time,

David
