Hello, lately I have problems with browsing, and some sites - especially Google connected sites - stopped working with Firefox altogether. For example, in the last month or so, when I open a link, it doesn't open for a long time or not at all, most times when I press the link again it might open. Google maps stopped working at all. I created a Google doc and when I tried sharing it I got a message that it can't be done at this time, I opened it in Chrome and it worked.

Any ides? Thanks

Firefox (and also Thunderbird) crash on trying to load Yahoo mail login page

A friend (who knows even less about technology than me) has an old Dell Inspiron 1501 which has been running Linux Mint 18 Xfce, which is now unsupported. I'm beginning to regret it but just to keep it going for a couple of years I offered to update to Mint 20 Xfce, which is the last version listing 1 Gb as the minimum Ram (everything later or other version are 2 Gb or more), which is the most that system can use. Once the wifi was eventually working (old b43 broadcom driver) most things went fine (except Team Viewer, which works on another Mint 20 Xfce system, but that's not a question for here). However, she uses Yahoo mail, and for some reason just attempting to load the login page (login.yahoo.com) causes Firefox to crash (I mentioned Thunderbird in the title as I attempted to access Yahoo Mail with it, but because it needs to access the Yahoo Mail page (as I think this is now based on App codes rather than passwords), and doing that crashed Thunderbird also). I'm pretty sure I have methodically gone through all the troubleshooting steps on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-and-diagnose-firefox-problems (clear cookies & cache by deleting history; clear startup cache; refresh; reinstall; new profile). Firefox doesn't crash in Troubleshoot mode, despite the fact is seems to still use hardware acceleration, even though I thought it would disable that. Hence, I'm at the end of what I know to try (and that's just from following the guide, I am not an expert) and would be grateful for any help anyone can offer. I attach an image that lists all the submitted crash reports, as they will refer to slightly different conditions as I tried all the options mentioned above. I'm using my own PC to submit this (so any hardware & system data submitted by this web-form won't be relevant), not the Inspiron 1501 that has the issue. I can open the Yahoo mail page on this machine (same version of Firefox) and also on the Inspiron 1501 using Chrome (but there was a different reason relating to security why we couldn't log in via that). Would really like to get Firefox (and Thunderbird) working on the laptop, if possible.

I don't want to blow off my bookmarks and other settings, but the system to install firefox app on new samsuung phone is reading "working" when I enter p/w and user, but it ain't allowing it to finish. I went onto the mozilla site and checked my firefox saved bookmarks but the moz. will only show me the dots for my p/w and they are WAY more than what I remember!!!!

  I have icloud so all the macs will show the same p/ws, and there's a big fat Mozilla warning telling me if I want to reset my p/w I will lose bookmarks, settings, etc.
  What is a workaround, so I can actually see my own p/w, or at least change the one Mozilla firefox thinks is the correct one (but isn't!!!)?
   I also have a VPN, which screws up the take a pic of the computer screen to set up computer.  I will go to another computer w.o it and try again, but this is truly overkill (it should have a way to show me my old p/w OR reset w.o killing my bookmarks, settings...)....right?!?!?!!?!

Steps to Reproduce: 1) Install Multi-Account Containers add-on 2) Create several different containers 3) Open tabs in each of the different containers 4) Restart Firefox by going to about:profiles and clicking "Restart normally"

Observed behavior: Tabs are not restored to any container upon restart.

Expected behavior: Tabs are restored to the containers with which they were opened.

Other remarks: This poses a security and privacy risk, as information leakage occurs when previously segregated websites are loaded outside of their containers all at once.

When my desktop Icons get scrambled or gone in Windows 7, I delete the Icon Cache file in Users\My name\Appdata\Local. (IconCache.db) I have been doing this on and off for years. I had to do this today and all my Desktop URL Icons were missing. The Urls are still there, but they all just have the default Windows Icon. I have tried everything I know to get them back but no luck. I have tried just going to the site and Book Marking it again, but that sometimes works but most of the time not. I copy the new book mark and paste too the Desktop and still, just MS Default. I remember at one time I could get to all these Icons. But now I cannot find them.. I don't know what happened but, Please Help..!! I need my Icons...

Hey Firefox Agent: Well I just wrote this out in a prior communication, but it got lost when I tried to figure out how to provide: Troubleshooting Information (optional):

Okay, so here we go again. But I am not going to provide: Troubleshooting Information (optional):

Here's the problem: In my Hotmail account, I am getting email "cards" (entries in my Hotmail account) that say: Unusual Sign-In Activity. Now recently, I spent a lot of time finally contacting and spending time with a Microsoft Tech Support agent. This agent helped me change the password on my main Hotmail account. Yet, I am still getting these annoying email "cards" in my Hotmail account. Now, I've analyzed these various email "cards" and I discovered a few things relating to Firefox. Here's what I found on all (5) of these separate email "cards": Sign-in details Country/region: Australia IP address: Please note I eliminated the IP address here because I don't know if it safe to do so or if I will be compromising my computer in any way. In order to share this IP address, I need to know if I am now dealing with an official Firefox support agent. If so and if it is necessary to share the IP address then please let me know in your follow up response. Date: 11/1/2022 4:46 PM (GMT) Platform: Windows Browser: Firefox Today, by the way, is: Sun 5 Feb 23 Time now: 4:16p Est at the time of writing this here line. It is interesting that the email "cards", all of them, have the same date and time: 11/1/2022 4:46 PM (GMT) There's something not right about receiving email "cards" from back in November 2022.

Now if you--the Firefox Support Agent--know what I can do to resolve and stop this annoying problem then please let me know by sending me an email to my email address. You have it from my Firefox account. Gosh, this is such an annoying problem. If you can help then please do so. Thank you.

For the second update in a row, Firefox has caused issues with two of the web sites I use most frequently. The first is Fidelity.com. If it will load at all, it takes a near eternity to do so. The second is the web site for my medicare insurance plan - it causes me to be locked out of my on-line account. These issues first occurred on the second to last update when both of these problems first appeared. I almost chalked it up to coincidence. But now that it has happened again (and only those two web sites) with the latest update I installed (ver. 109.1), I know that it is a problem with Firefox. I have enjoyed the privacy and reliability of Firefox for years. But if updates are going to eliminate my access to my most used web sites, then I'll have to find another browser.

I have a sandbox iframe which is hosted by various websites. Lets assume that this iframe is loaded like this: I have already added 'allow-scripts allow-forms allow-modals allow-same-origin allow-popups allow-popups-to-escape-sandbox allow-storage-access-by-user-activation' at sandbox. I also use document.requestStorageAccess() from inside the iframe and I set event listeners for the storage like this:

window.addEventListener('storage', onStorageFunc, false);. From the iframe a popup window is presented when user clicks a specific button and the popup opens at lets say at this url "https://paypal.com". After user navigation on popup, paypal at the end of the flow redirects user to this url "https://example.com/success". At this point when user is navigated to /success I add some data to local storage which I expect to trigger the storage event listener and the onStorageFunc to run. This doesn't happen, while in other browsers it works as expected.

Since both popup and iframe are under the same url (https://example.com) and I have used requestStorageAccess, I would expect this to work normally. Can you please help me to find out what is going wrong here? In the past I had the same problem but it was fixed when I added 'requestStorageAccess' and 'allow-storage-access-by-user-activation'. Now I can see it happening again.

When I try to log-in to my on-line bank account at Synchrony Bank, using Firefox, I get the following error message: Access Denied - You don't have permission to access "http://auth.synchronybank.com/account/login" on this server. This happens everytime there is an update from Firefox and it lasts for days upon days until bingo it works again. I can get into my account using Microsoft Edge, as my brower, but I prefer not to. I do not use Google Chrome. How can this situation be rectified and prevented from happening in the future ?? Any help would be greatly appreciated !!

Am using FF 109.01 (64) and the latest Windows 10 (64) ver. I uses their Virus program.

With my bank security settings I have check marked to not use 2FA Bank home page asks for a security code anyway.

This has happened to me months ago and all of a sudden everything was OK. ... and now it has happened again. When I use Edge, Bank home page does not ask for a security code. This is the way I would like FF to perform.

I have phoned the Bank IT Help desk and they are bafflled. They had me try a bunch of acrobats but nothing works.

Obviously there is something in FF to tweak. I am using

I have searched and searched on internet, but no solution. I have used FF since it was a baby, and I want to stick with it. Thanks

Lately firefox have been buggy and have closed all my tabs, or so I tought, but after using task manager I see it's up an running, but if I just use the firefox button a new windows open, but if I right-click and tells it to open av often used site, it pops up with all my saved tabs. I've tried using the exit button in the menu, but it makes no difference.

I've tried fixing it a few times via the installer, havent uninstalled it yet as I have to be in the office to do a complete re-install.

But the funny thing after the lastest update is that is I open firefox, my teams app go down, and if I open teams, Firefox goes down... I've tried using safe mode in firefox, but it made no difference.
