I'm a brand-new Firefox user, just trying to import or recreate my login data from Chrome. Every time I've clicked "Import" from Lockwise and checked the appropriate boxes, I get a dialog box telling me that the import was successful... but Lockwise still tells me "No logins found." I do know that importation of some kind is happening because my bookmarks imported just fine. Prompts to save my logins still appear, but passwords do not get saved, as evidenced by the "No logins found" message where a list of my saved logins should be. When I attempt to create a login manually, I get a dialog box like the one used to create a Primary Password, except it looks more like a system dialog box, something from Windows rather than from Firefox (image 1.1). I've tried entering all the passwords I can think of into this dialog box--my OS password, my Firefox password, the password I'm trying to save, the password I would choose for my Primary Password if I had one--only for another box to pop up stating "Unable to change password" (image 1.2). Upon closing this box, a red banner appears stating that there was an error while trying to save the password.

One of the times I was trying to use Lockwise, a bar appeared at the top of the screen stating that I needed to use my Primary Password--which I didn't have and still don't--to access my logins. I can't remember what I did because I've tried several things, but if I figure out how to recreate that I'll update this post. I attempted to create a Primary Password from my Options menu by checking the box next to "Use a Primary Password." Even though it clearly recognizes that I don't have a Primary Password set, I still get an "Unable to change primary password" notice (image 2). I've tried resetting it, but to no avail. I have also followed the advice of all the relevant articles I could find (e.g., the help article on what to do if your passwords aren't saving), but nothing so far has fixed the issue.

Lastly--it seems like I'm getting the system-dialog-looking box about every hour or so, always twice in a row: I'll click "cancel," and then it will show up again. I also can't seem to log out of my Firefox account, as that same dialog box appears and prevents me from doing so.

What is going on here? Is there anything I can do to fix it?

Now i always get this in Firefox "Playback Error There's something wrong. Please try again later. "

And yes it is just Firefox. I know that Firefox is killing the ability to listen to Amazon Music as it works perfectly fine in Chrome and Microsoft Edge but not in Firefox at all. I've tried several days - it won't play it.

Really is uninstalling and basically killing Firefox the best?

I have had Firefox downloaded for a considerable amount of time and had begun to use it as my daily browser, until I started experiencing issues, concerning the loading. I have experienced this issue in all cases when trying to open the browser through the desktop shortcut, other icons, and even the .exe file, and typically I will see a brief white screen of Firefox before it immediately closes again. Frustrating to say the least and a quick google provides no insight. I have attempted on multiple occasions to uninstall and reinstall, however to no avail, and have even tried to create a new profile, via the Run (Firefox.exe -P) but again with no success. Running the browser in Safe Mode (Shift) will also work for a split second with the dialogue opening and then instantly shutting. Any suggestion on a potential fix would be great.

When you are presented with a text field, sometimes when you type, a small list of words you entered previously will drop down. You can then select one of those previous words, or continue with what you were originally typing. This is the Autofill feature for Firefox.

Lately, it has been a pain. After an hour or so of use, the instant I click on a text field to type something (usually for searching), the autofill box would partially drop down, only for Firefox to completely hang up. Once you recover from the initial crash, the autofill bug would not appear until at least an hour later. I tried turning off Autofill, but it cost me access to my History, so I was forced to do a complete browser reset. This issue has been with me for about a couple of weeks, and I have no idea why it's doing this.

Hey,

on one of my notebooks (Thinkpad E495) FF occasionally crashes. This started happening a few months ago. Before I've been using FF on the same machine for years without any issues. It's pretty random but usually happens at least once a day, usually shortly after startup or wakeup from hibernate mode. A while ago it used to even crash back to back twice in a row meaning after I reopened it, it immediately closed again and only worked after I selected to restore the previous session after the 2nd reopen. Nothing is registered under about:crashes and I don't see any errors in the system event log.

I already tried to disable hardware acceleration and reinstalled FF completely without any addons besides a different adblocker. I cannot really reproduce the crash in safe-mode but don't really want to browse the web for possibly hours without an adblocker.

Any ideas what this could be or what else I could try? Maybe downgrade to a previous version?

I know this is a longshot. I used Firefox for the last couple of years with Seagull Scientific's BarTender software on my Windows 7 pc. Now my PC was wiped out and Windows 10 as part of my company's initiative to get everyone up to Windows 10. BarTender uses a driver to talk to your print drivers and provide a status back to the BarTender server and webpage that we use. After the move to Windows 10 Firefox will not work with BarTender. It works in MS Edge and Chrome.

 I've got a ticket into Seagull Scientific and I can foresee how this will go.  They will point me back to Firefox and then I'll get pointed back to the vendor.   I know it will be hard to find someone with a similar issue.  But maybe someone had some issue with another driver, etc that stopped talking to Firefox.   
I've tried to turn off all of Firefox's protection stuff that might be interfering and still not working. 
I have used Firefox and prefer it over any others.   But I also don't like the idea of having to change browsers depending on what I'm doing.   Besides, this software I have to regularly use.   So if I can't find a solution I may have to abandon use of Firefox.

Long time listener, first time caller... :) [Seriously have been using and loving Firefox/Mozilla since 2004-2005, before that was Netscape Navigator, this is the first time I can recall having an issue that I can't find already written up and solved. Hence, this post.]

I've been having some odd issues with Firefox (85.0.2 64-bit) on my Intel Mac (Big Sur 11.2.1) for the past few months, and this morning decided to dig in deeper.

The backstory: When I’ve wanted to copy and image and paste it into Apple Messages, the images sometimes don’t send because Messages doesn’t support TIFF, WEBP, or PNG formats when sending to someone who doesn’t have an iMessage account (aka using standard MMS like to Android phones). So, I then have to convert the failed image to JPG, delete the failed message, and drag the saved JPG image file into Messages and can then resend it.

The issue: Today, I discovered that when I copy a JPG image from Firefox, and paste it into Apple messages, it seems that it doesn’t send because it appears to be either copied or pasted as a different format than the original image?

To reproduce:

  1. Go to a web site with a JPG image ( http://www.lunarbaboon.com for example)
  2. Right-Click on the JPEG image ( comicorder038.jpg for example) and select “View Image Info”
  3. Right-Click on the JPEG image and select “Copy Image”
  4. Paste into Messages to send to someone who doesn’t have an iMessage account
  5. Hit enter to send
  6. Wait a few seconds for failure
  7. Click on failure Info
  8. Right-Click on image and select Open
  9. Preview shows the file as TIFF not JPG

To simplify:

  1. Go to a web site with a JPG image ( http://www.lunarbaboon.com for example)
  2. Right-Click on the JPEG image ( comicorder038.jpg for example) and select “Copy Image”
  3. Open Preview and select “New from Clipboard”
  4. Select “Tools -> Show Inspector”
  5. Preview shows the file as PNG not JPG

What I’ve tried: Copy & paste of same image from Firefox - Safe Mode fails - So, doubt it is something in my Firefox config Copy & paste of same image from Safari works - So, doubt it is something MacOS related However, copy & paste of same image from Chrome fails too - So, maybe it is something MacOS related?

Any suggestions on what to try next?

For some reason, my long column (about 1,000 bookmarks) have an intolerable indent space/empty area to the left of each entry...about 2-3 in long and for all bookmarks, so that I have to stretch out the names and reduce my main viewer window as a result.

   IF I try to just move the whole lot leftward, that cuts out the "bookmarks" with the black star as well as search bookmarks entry bar.  A long time ago, I thought it had a left right scroll tab at the very bottom.  All support entries talk about moving the whole column to the right side of the screen-what I need is 1) an ability to move all bookmarks titles to the left edge as much as possible while keeping orientation with the top "star/bookmarks".
   I do use a zoom button for browsing the web, but reducing screen size has nothing to do with the overly fat/wide bookmarks area-there has got to be a way to put it on a diet!!!

BONUS: if anyone knows on a Mac running High Sierra or any other os, how the heck do you increase size of other menus that don't respond to zoom (command + or _)..even ones not on Firefox? Any recommended zoom apps for menus intrinsic to macs in general?

So after the wonderful weather the east coast has got over the past few days. Internet is out with no eta when it will be fixed. So I have to use apple hotspot. Ive noticed on firefox I only get up to 2.5 mbps download speeds. If I do a speed test it shows 36 to 44 mbps . Booted onto my old ssd drive with the same version of windows ten and as far as I know firefox. Firefox works fine on that drive. Ive also found out microsoft edge also works fine on my main m.2 ssd . I have no idea why firefox would be so slow, its like its limiting my speeds . But I checked and the throttling is turned off. I tried to uninstall firefox and reinstall didn't help.

I have no idea why speed test.net shows im getting 40+ mbps and youtube videos or just surfing the web is stuck at 2.5 mbps. any help or ideas would be great. Thanks.
