I will be moving all of my data to a new laptop and want to know if I need to have both my personal Firefox profile and the "default-release" profile backed up. The "default" one is over 3GB and has over 20k files in it, and my personal one is only 113 MB with 1300 files — and my thumb drive needs all the extra space it can get. (Why would the "default-release" profile be so much larger than my personal one?)

The old laptop runs on Windows and the new one will have the Linux OS. Will that make a difference in using a backed up Firefox profile? I mean, will the data still work in the new OS?

So now I got an likely screen when I picked up my laptop and press down some keys

When I press the back button on the keyboard it says in an little notice window that dissapear after 3 seconds.

The satellite imagery on google maps is mirrored diagonally, while the road map displays correctly over it. Win7, Firefox 108.0.2. started happening with Firefox 107.x.x and tried resetting Firefox, but no luck. Satellite imagery displays correctly in troubleshoot mode and private browsing. Cleaned out my cookies and cache, but no dice in regular browser.

Anyone have experience with that?

I do not want her obituary page made public on a forum in case it causes inappropriate comments.

I have just discovered the page works ok on Chrome so I will use that for now, but I am reporting the problem to try and help you. I am using latest version of Firefox.

I have added a screen snip of the part-loaded page.

I just followed the button below about extra troubleshooting information and lost all the information I had typed into this box, which irritates me as well.

Have a look please and let me know, thanks.

Hello there. Ever since the latest update (to 115.0.2), I've been experiences random crashes. It's only happening with these 2 sites: https://www.mapsofworld.com/ and https://www.buongiorno.sk/ (there may be more but I haven't discovered any others as of yet). I open the sites and FF immediately shuts down. And then, after I restart it, there are no crashes listed in the logs (about:crashes). I've tried everything. Cookies, cache, a "refresh", a fresh install and I've also checked my system and HDD for errors but nothing helped. Any idea what I should do? The problem seems to be on your side, not mine

Has update to Firefox 115.1.0esr (64-bit) broken things for other users as well? The update applied itself about 20 minutes ago, and then I tried to log in to my Hostinger account. Instead of the two-factor authentication kicking in as normal, I got a message about a Captcha check failed - even though there is no captcha.

So I went to google, typed in my search term, hit return, and instead of google going searching, I got a new line in the search box!

Google Chrome browser (which I hate) is still working fine. So is someone going to fix this? (I seem to get daily messages from Firefox about a new update available), so hopefully....

Sorry about the confrontational tone - I'm from an era when software was tested before it was released, not released and then fixed daily! And that was a bitchy remark too!

Hi, when I log into my bank I give my account number and then a password. I have told firefox not to remember my password but it is remembering the bank account number which automatically pops up when I am on the banks log in page. How do I stop this? Also when I signed up for this firefox help it asked for an email address and all my email addresses poped up for me to chose from. I didn't like this either. Appreciate any help. If these features can't be turned off whats the last version I can use that won't do this? cheers Neil

Facebook Crashes Firefox and Shuts Down the Network.

When on Facebook, Firefox will shut down the network connection so that it can't communicate anymore, no incoming or outgoing traffic through Firefox. I opened TaskManager to try to kill the process, but it leaves a single Firefox.exe process running and it CAN'T be killed. I've tried everything I can think of. In an admin command window, normally Tasklist to check for the process and then Taskkill /IM firefox.exe would work. It comes back with process not found, even though it's in the Tasklist and still running in the taskmanager list.

When trying to kill Firefox, it always says "Firefox is currently running" with the option of close Firefox or cancel. If you select close Firefox, the window just comes up again with the same question while leave Firefox.exe still running in the taskmanager. If you select cancel, the windows goes away and the Firefox.exe process stays running in taskmanager.

So I used Sandboxie (sandbox program) to open another Firefox window to continue, which works fine for a while until Firefox decides to shut down the network connection again. I even tried logging off the user account and logging into a different user account, Firefox is still there, running and still can't be shut down. It's like a bad case of Herpes or Chlamydia or something. Then all I can do is shut down and restart the entire machine.

So to reiterate, Firefox cannot be shut down and removed from the taskmanager process list using the typical right upper corner "Red X" kill, or by way of taskmanager "end process" or "end process tree" and cannot be shut down by an admin command window Taskkill command or logging off and switching users.

I don't know if the "autoscroll issue" is an inherent attached problem or separate, but I have that one as well. I'll be looking at asomething and Firefox with a mind of its own will scroll down maybe 2 to 10 threads, sometimes stop, sometimes continue scrolling all on its own. It's annoying as hell. I will try the layout.css "false" fix and see if that works.

Both these issues only occur on my cheezy 3rd gen motherboard/computer, so the specs for cheezyness...

Folks, my basic settings are "always use private browsing mode". I occasionally run into sites that don't allow this. I see there is the keystroke support for the ability to open a new tab in private mode. Can you develop one to open a tab in non private mode ?? it's a major pain to have to change the main private browsing mode setting to off, use the site that demands it off, then change it back afterwards.

Thanks,

The new Mozilla Firefox (version 110.0) does not run after update on my system. After run it shows the window, but this window doesn't respond. The clean installation (of course with profile folder erase) doesn't fix the problem. I have tried both x64 and x86 versions.

The previous version installation (109.0.1) works fine.

Is there some way to stop this annoying message from appearing?

Hello! This is not really a question ... more a comment. This morning when I opened my WIN 7 HOME tower PC, and opened FIREFOX, I saw the notice that this latest release is the latest for WIN 7. That's fine, but I wish to tell you something about WIN 7 PRO & MICROSOFT. Evidently, there is some major user of WIN 7 PRO who has demanded that MICROSOFT continue to support this version. I have two H-P laptops, which I use for Ladder programming. Both are loaded with WIN 7 PRO, and both receive periodic updates from MICROSOFT. So, it would seem that ALL support for these older releases of Windows has not ended. I am in the process of moving all my files & applications from this WIN 7 HOME PC to my WIN 10 tower PC. THANK YOU. robert herold [removed emails from public]

P.S. Had no problem porting the FIREFOX data to the 10, but had a lot of problems doing the same for THUNDERBIRD on this PC to the 10, despite getting assistance from your tech people.
