All of a sudden I have to log in to all the common websites I use such as Yahoo mail. It could have been something I changed but I don't know what. From what I understand it may have something to do with the setting Cookies and site data. I think that if the box that says "delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" is checked then the log ins will not be remembered. The problem I have is that particular setting is ticked and it is shaded and I cant uncheck it. Can someone provide a simple solution please?

Firefox used to have a setting to open 1, 3 or all previous session tabs, now that option is gone and defaults to open all tabs. The problem didn't affect me until I made a full Win 8.1 64-bit reinstall, I overwrote the entire previous profile with about 950 tabs; I made sure that profile specific files weren't overwritten, I checked internally with Total Commander looking for the specific profile name in all files of the old profile; anyway, the new firefox with the old profile quickly killed any operational capability of my PC, not even the mouse or the keyboard lights would work, until many minutes later, then slowly I could move the mouse to the upper right corner for the [ X ] to kill firefox. While trying to uninstall Firefox uninstaller offered to "refresh" so I did, and here I am

Is there something in about:config I can modify? I really need that option back, is a royal PIA as Firefox is working now, and a very very stupid idea to remove such important option.

Plugins, add-ons have nothing to do, Can anyone let Mozilla know about this, they killed the Feedback option on the Browser.

Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me. I'm unable to save my username and passwords. I read that it could be that I had upgraded to a new version of Firefox. Apparently, I had previously downloaded Firefox a while ago and just recently reinstalled it. I guess it remembered. I check marked all the password settings and it still won't save at all. It said that I should downgrade to a previous version 68. Then, it asked which browser and that's where I'm stuck.

Can someone please help?

Thank you!

Dear Firefox Community: I used to love Firefox. Now, I am constantly blocked from performing basic functions. Tonight I tried to complete a simple ebay transaction. I wasted more than one hour trying to make a purchase, with Firefox failing at every step. I opened Microsoft Edge and completed my purchase within literally seconds. Firefox now blocks me from several of my favorite websites. My fantasy sports and sports betting websites fail on Firefox but work fine on other browsers. The entire financial pop up window that is supposed to provide security does not work with my bank's website. I am trying to find a good reason to continue using Firefox, and I am not thinking of any. Again, I'm a longtime user and fan but right now the basics are not working with you, Firefox. Very frustrated.

Occasionally some websites will render a few icons of some particular type in a weird way. It's this crisscrossed celtic-looking pattern of yellow green and red. It's not a monitor or GPU issue, although does sort of look like my GPU is broken.

Here's an example. Curiously enough, this happens occasionally but here are some concrete examples where it ALWAYS happens. On 10forums, EVERYONE'S profile looks this way. https://www.tenforums.com/drivers-hardware/111899-stereo-mix-no-longer-appears.html

(look in pictures)

And so this didn't matter because this happened like once when I was doing a captcha, the whole captcha was rendered weird, and on tenforums. And almost never anywhere else.

But okay now it's a problem. A newgrounds game is rendering weird. (image attached) The boxes move around a tiny bit, they walk up and down.

I have to use chrome to fix this issue.

Anyone know I should do? I'm like 80% confident I've tried disabling ALL extensions but didn't fix the issue. I can try again if you really think it's important.

Apologies for asking this here, but I've done the Google and can't find an answer.

Background: I keep 2-3 Firefox versions and profiles on my computer. The software is in, for example, directories FFox82, FFox84, FFox86 The profiles are in, for example, directories Firefox82, Firefox84, Firefox86 (The software and profiles are on different drives.)

When I do an upgrade, I copy the newest software to a new directory and rename it (e.g., FFox92 - so now there are 4 sw directories) Then I copy the newest profile directory and give it a corresponding name (e.g., Firefox92 - so now there are 4 profile directories). I install the new version to its directory and thenlaunch with a -p option. Then I create a new profile and point it to the corresponding folder. Then I launch the new version with the -p option pointing to the new profile directory.

This has worked for decades.

But I just tried it with Firefox 90 and Firefox 92 and NO GO. It acts as if I've never used Firefox before. No apps, no toolbars, no bookmarks, nothing.

What is going on? Am I stuck on Firefox86 for the rest of the century?

And, please, don't tell me how wonderful these new versions are and I should simply accept the change. I have a virtual lifetime invested in the toolbars, extensions and bookmarks on my computer.

I simply want to know if there is a fix and, if so, what it is.

It seems the folks there at Firefox central enjoy wrecking people's experience by frequently releasing new browsers that breaks what already in place. What the hell is wrong with you guys...?? Are you secretly employed by Microsoft and/or Google....?? Seriously, this is no way to run a browser company. It is, however, a great way to ruin one. Give us a break, and stop breaking our browsers. You ruin our experience, and you do it on a semi regular basis. It's all well and fine to release new stuff, with new features, but for the love of God if it's gonna break what we already have, at the very least offer us a way to keep what we have, and have it supported even in a minimal way, and branch off the new option. I get your fears, you fear that not enough people will opt for the new one like that, and you're probably right. That however, should tell you something.

We loyally support your project. That should be worth something. Thanks.

I'm a gmail user and use its keyboard shortcuts extensively. The problem I've had in Firefox (but not Chrome) is that 2-3 times per day, when I'm typing in gmail's search bar, the shortcut handling code kicks in.

Here's a more detailed example:

  1. I hit `/` to go to the search bar
  2. I want to search for "peach", so I start typing that
  3. When I type the second letter, `e`, gmail recognizes that as the shortcut to archive the current message.

If I reload the gmail tab, it'll start working again.

I'm on MacOS. I've got five add-ons installed which have permissions on gmail (see attached image), but none strike me as the type which would affect javascript keyboard event handling. The most likely would be LastPass or uBlock origin.

Has anybody else encountered this? Found a solution?

When i click on the lock icon in the address bar, nothing happens (I would expect to see the encryption and certificate, but no widget opens). When I right-click into the page and select "View Page Info", "Security", "View Certificate", no certificate exists. Only generic info is shown (Servers+Authorities). Also an error is reported in the system log, confirming that no certificate exists: JavaScript error: chrome://browser/content/browser-siteIdentity.js, line 642: TypeError: issuerCert is undefined

Questions:

  • Why does Firefox show the lock icon while no certificate exists?
  • How does Firefox establish a secure connection without having a certificate? (From my understanding a certificate is needed for TLS to work.)

Version used: Firefox 78.12.0esr ('Mozilla/5.0 (X11; FreeBSD amd64; rv:78.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/78.0'), no add-ons or plugins.
