[SOLVED] Firefox 54 breaking all the things?

Postby SamuraiMark » Mon Jun 19, 2017 10:04 am

Probably this is just me, but FF 54 seems to have broken a lot of websites, e.g.:

  • coinbase no longer works at all - get a blank page with a blue bar across the top
  • I can't browse past the main landing page of the PlayStation store - "Store Error. Page timed out"

Anyone else having trouble?

The coinbase site loads for me here. Try it in a new Firefox profile.

Possibly a problem with our FF-profile.
To find this out do the following:
Close FF.
Open your file-manager and make hidden files visible (press ctrl-h).
Rename the folder .mozilla to .mozilla.bck
Start FF, this will create automatically a new FF-profile.
Check.

To get back to your old profile:
Close FF.
Delete the new folder .mozilla
Rename the folder .mozila.bck back to .mozilla
Start FF. Done.

That fixed it. Thanks all.

EDIT: well, it mostly worked. It solved the problems I was having with coinbase, PS store, etc., but I lost some stuff like previously opened tabs, and I am having to re-login to all my various services.

That's what it's supposed to do. It's not called a "NEW" profile for nothing. :wink:

My advice was for investigating into the problem. And it has in the second part the advice to revert the first step.

Do this second part; now you are back at your own, but defective profile. Click the menu (sandwich) icon -> help icon -> select the command to show the information for troubleshooting -> click the button near the top right to clean up Firefox. Parts of your accommodations will get lost (by design, because there is on any place the culprit), others will get preserved.
