I've got a persistent issue where Firefox immediately crashes when I open it initially.

Starting it again after this crash works totally fine, though if I close out and re-open a few times it will crash consistently (after every 3-5th-ish open).

It has been happening for the last year or so, and despite clean installs of the browser as well as other diagnostics it won't go away. It's incredibly annoying :(

Hoping the Firefox community can give me a hand and help solve this.

Cheers, Ciaran

You have very practical option for the address bar to separate it for the search bar. See the attached screen shot.

We have many local url addresses to the local web server, which the Firefox does not recognize as URL addresses and redirects to the search engine.

So I said in the option, that for the search purposes a separate bar should be used. But the address bar still redirects to the search engine although I said that that the address bar should be used only for the navigation.

Please make the address bar working for the navigation only if the option "Add search bar in toolbar" is selected. Otherwise there is no sense in the separate search bar.

When I display the review page for any installed add-on, I'm unable to submit a review. A few details:

1) I do not see the expected, "Rate Your Experience" link 2) I'm logged onto my Firefox account 3) I'm aware it uses different credentials than Mozilla Support 4) I've tried clicking on the yellow stars but it doesn't allow me to rate the plug in or display any new links 5) I've read other forum posts from other users who've experienced the same symptoms

Ideas, anyone? Thanks,

I open "Manage Bookmarks." I open "Library." In "Search Bookmarks," I enter what I'm searching for, assume NY Times.' All the Times links are displayed. I see in the "Name" field at the bottom that I misspelled a word in a displayed link; e.g., "Pul" instead of "Paul." I go to the "Name" field, add the missing "a", then click on an adjoining link. The edit does not take place - like it used to.

How do I edit the "Name" field in the library?

(NB: Firefox 96.0.2)

First, check "DeIete cookies and sitedata when Firefox is closed" from Privacy & Security in the settings.

After that, register the Google domain as an exception with "Manage Exceptions".

When I restart Firefox after logging in to Google once, the Google registration information disappears even though I registered the exception, and I have to log in again.

However, there are some sites where my login information will not disappear if I register as an exception.

How can I prevent my Google login information from disappearing even if I restart with the above settings?

Thank you.

Hello!

I am multilingual and write in multiple different languages, and the red markings from spellcheck underneath non-English sentences get annoying when they are so frequent. I understand that I can install multiple dictionaries, but that does not allow me to use more than one language's spellcheck at a time.

Is it possible to activate 2+ language dictionaries in Firefox?

Thanks for the help, Sylvan

An automatic update of Firefox which resulted in a "quit/create new profile" choice has removed all my bookmarks

Of the four profiles stored in "about:profile" three are identical (ie. have only the default bookmarks stored) and one, generates a "quit/create new profile" message.

The "bookmarksbackup" folder (in /home/user/.Mozilla/Firefox/zs1jki8t.default) is empty.

The "import/backup" option (in Manage Bookmarks) offers nothing to choose. There is no 'list of dated automatic backups.'

Firefox did not create an "Old Firefox Data" folder on the desktop.

Browser privacy "strict". "Never remember history" was selected.

All of a sudden I can no longer access a website that I have visited a million times before. I get an error message stating...

The page isn’t redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

I have cleared cookies/cache and all that achieves is that I can get to the website's log in page but then straight back to the same error message. I'm so frustrated as this is a website I need to access for my work.

I can get to it no problem on my phone so it appears to be a Firefox issue. I don't want to use another browser as I get on well with firefox but I fear I may have to as this is too important a website to be without.

Any help would be appreciated - thank you, Nat

For years I have been using Firefox. If I clicked on a hyperlink in any of my programs, Outlook messages, websites etc, Firefox opened a new tab. That behaviour has suddenly stopped for websites including this one occasionally. It seems to still work for Outlook. Has Firefox changed its policy?

The advice on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1283295 is to edit browser.link.open_newwindow (3) 1:current tab; 2:new window; 3:new tab; But that is already set to 3.

What other settings might work? And why has this been changed?
