Hi, my firefox doesn't seem to want to launch from the start menu for some reason (when I click it the start menu closes but Firefox does not open and isn't running in the background), however the shortcut that is created on the desktop seems to launch firefox perfectly well. However, when I do open firefox, it has a blank default icon as if its a random program. Could someone help me? This issue is getting quite annoying and tedious and I've had to switch to edge for a while now. I've been using Firefox about a year now and this hasn't happened before.

Steps I've taken:

  • Uninstalled and reinstalled firefox, deleted profile data too
  • Restarted PC

Here is a screenshot of what my icon in the taskbar looks like: https://i.imgur.com/d8uAq8a.png

https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-09-24-23-54-18-679698.png

I can choose the sub folder to save the bookmark to. BUT I now CAN'T scroll down the screen to hit the save button. Because the bookmark window doesn't have a scroll bar or a way to make the bookmark window smaller. This is frustrating. Firefox is having other issues not connected with this issue. But the overall picture is getting me to the point of dumping Firefox and going to Google Chrome.

Frequently when on a website I will do a search, or try to print, and after issuing the command, FireFox just sits there and does nothing. I go to a different browser, log on to my account on the same website and it searches, prints or otherwise functions normally.

Here is an example where after hitting the search button on the website, FireFox sits and leave me a blank screen. Screen shot attached.

https://www.americastestkitchen.com/search?q=ham%20and%20scalloped%20potatoes

I have updated to the latest version of FireFox hoping that the problem would go away, but it persists. This is getting very frustrating, and since other browsers don't do this, it is drawing me away from Firefox, which I have used as my default browser for years.

I use Firefox for many years. Firefox is always synced and I use "Firefox master password".

The problem is that every time I try to sign in my account I see this message: "This account is not active. Please contact an administrator if you believe this is an error. " This message is looks like mozilla's prank, because someone needs to sign in first to get help! As I try to get help, "support mozilla" is drive me to an endless loop in Mozilla.org.

After several minutes (I think about 15minutes) I don't know why and how but I'm in! This is happened every time I try to sign in my account!

Why is so much time consuming and frustrating the way to sign in? What it means "This account is not active." and why don't given a reason why this happens or/and a way to fix? Why I can't just type the UN/Pass to sign in?

Thanks in advance and sorry for my english.

Hey There,

whenever the window is inactive and i want to scroll the site (with a touchpad swipe) it instead navigates forward or backward. ONLY when the window is inactive. the behavior is the same with horizontal and vertical swipes. I've tried disabling the feature like described here (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/915174) but i had no luck with that.

i'm using firefox 78.2. on an opensuse 15 laptop. thought i might be an issue with that but with chromium i dont have that issue

thanks in advance.

Message always pops up in WIN 10 saying Mozilla Firefox is not is not my default browser even though it is. I have decided to use Firefox over Edge as my default browser in Win 10 but every time I start Firefox a message pops up saying Firefox is not my default browser. I have gone to the next screen and confirm that it is. but each time I open and close Firefox the message reappears! I have gone on internet and tried all the solutions suggested like reinstalling, going into default apps through control panel, through the CMD prompt, etc and still no fix seems to work. The message is annoying to no end as each time I start Firefox I have to click through two extra screens to start using it. I have no problem with Chrome but I prefer Firefox because certain sites don't work well with Chrome for some reason and Firefox works well but this is getting annoying switching between apps or clicking these extra keys. I noticed a lot of people are having the same issue with WIN 10. I have no problems on my Win 7 computer but I am thinking of upgrading it and of course it will come with Win 10 so I want to solve this problem if I can now. Any new "fix" since last I checked? I have tried all so far suggested online with no success. I do note it is a it is a WIN 10 and Firefox problem. Is there anyone from MS or Mozilla that can help?

NOTE: I have made a video to show the problem, so if my explanation isn't clear, please watch this.

The problem arises only when I try to access the options tab. As soon as I have the options tab open, my PC's memory use skyrockets and doesn't come down, Firefox stalls completely and I have to close FF through the task manager.

This problem has never occured in the past, this has only been happening since a day or 2 ago.

I tried to disable all the add-ons, plug-ins, have the standard light theme. Nothing changed.

I don't really enjoy having to use safemode everytime I want to access the options tab.

Thanks for reading
