Backing up and restoring lost tabs

I often experience situations on Firefox where I lose all of my important tabs which I never end up getting back, despite having 'restore previous session' turned on. For instance, it happens when a software forcefully opens a "Thank you for installing" site while Firefox wasn't running, or when I accidentally open a link in a new window while being on private mode, when I meant to open it in a new private window instead..

On a different browser I used before switching to Firefox, I used to resolve this by going to it's profile location and looking at two files named "Current Session" and "Last Session". I could just rename the "Last Session" file to "Current Session", and all of my tabs would return. I was hoping Firefox would have something similar, but it seems either impossible or maybe just a bit more complicated, since I cannot find anything regarding this on the web.

Each time this happens to me, I go to my Firefox profile folder but cannot really find anything regarding sessions I could replace and restore. Only thing I managed to back up from the various important tabs I lost were six files in a fashion like this:

recovery.jsonlz4, upgrade.jsonlz4-[a lot of numbers]

Can I use these files to recover my lost tabs somehow, similar to how I used to do it in the different browser? Hopefully I'm understandable, it's a bit complicated to explain for me.

I tried to change some things in about:config which resulted in websites not working properly and reverting the changes wouldn't fix it, so I had to do a refresh of Firefox. The sites work like they used to now.

I'm still confused about Firefox Sync's functionality because when I set it up to sync my tabs it never wants to do it, but immediately after the refresh it downloaded all of my Add-ons right away, which was nice to see. However, my settings/options from those Add-ons are missing, like my uBlock filter lists or various Tampermonkey user scripts.

Is there any way I could recover the Add-on settings from the profile backup which the refresh created on my Desktop? There's a folder called browser-extension-data with some other folders inside, but they're all empty. I tried looking for it myself but couldn't find solutions. I also have a complete profile backup I manually made just before I the Refresh as a safety measure if needed. Thank you very much..!

Hi! I have a company network with about 30 PCs, no domain, but a working internal DNS. There is a server within the network running a webapplication (ASPX). The firewall regulations are very strict, so there are only two hands full of websites reachable from the network. Until now (version 82.x) it was enough to put the adress http://server in the address line of Firefox to open the application. After updating to version 83.0 the server is not reachable anymore, firefox automatically tries to open http://www.server.com "ping server" works, use of \\server in windows explorer and opening an RDP-Connection to "server" works also!

Why is that so and are there any solutions?

Thanks in advance!

Best regards

If I type vodafone in Google search in firefox it shows for only half a second the link to the vodafone website but than it goes 3 or 4 places down and I only get links to other vodafone suppliers. If I type stock Tesla before I got the grafic of Tesla stock and now I have to click to financial to show that because the first 3 links are commercial stock sellers.

This is only a recent development but very very annoing.

When watching a video baught from Amazon in most cases audio and picture are not synchronous. Discrepanca seems to increase with watching time. The problem does not occur with Opera, Internet Explorer or Edge. Deleting browser cache and cookies does not help. Reducing the quality or rewind does not help. Internet quality/speed seems to be OK because it wors fine with other browsers. How can I fix this problem. I do not want to go to another browser because I am very happy with firefox.

Noticed on the latest release of Firefox after I press quit(I have multiple windows) the process will not fully close; I've confirmed this on both Windows and Ubuntu versions. It seems to happen when I have videos playing while closing as they will continue to play in the background.

Only way to fully close the app is to stop the running background process; the videos cannot be stopped as they are CCTV streams.

I'm not familiar with logging with FF if someone can advise on which ones would be of interest I can provide them.

Hi Everyone,

I cannot access my Firefox account created with 1 of 2 email addresses I use, I'll call this emailA, and do not have Firefox in an Authenticator app nor can I find the recovery code. The account did have a secondary email address listed. I'll call this emailB. EmailB also gets all alerts when there are changes to the EmailA firefox account such as new system logins and password changes.

Given that emailb gets notifications regarding the account is there a way for me to gain access to the account with emailA as the primary address using emailB?

Failing that, is there support who I can contact to have the account under emailA deleted?

Regards,

Chris

It seems that Firefox does not sync all settings the way for example Chrome does. In Google chrome one can expect absolutely all settings to sync across browser instances instantly. In Firefox only parts of the settings are synced. This makes Firefox unreliable and inconvenient because it is not apparent to the user which settings are synced and which are not.

Here is my experience:

- I made a new Firefox account - Signed in - Made sure syncing is on for:

  • Bookmarks
  • Credit cards
  • History
  • Add-ons
  • Logins and password
  • Options

- Added some add-ons, added some bookmarks - Customized the interface - Changed some Settings - Opened a Windows 10 VM - Installed Firefox 83 (so both computers have the same version) - Logged in with my Firefox account - Waited for the sync

So far I can see that my extensions are synced and my bookmarks. However there are some things that don't sync:

- Customization for controls, buttons and toolbars - Default search engine - Alternative search engines - Settings for "Firefox Data Collection and Use"

There might be more settings that don't sync, which I have not tested. Is this behavior expected? If so I might switch back to Chrome. Syncing only certain settings defeats the purpose of syncing, at least for me.

Also is there any list or information about which settings are syncing and which are not?

Today at 14:07 I changed my email preferences and unsubscribed from all email types in my Firefox account.

At 5 hours later, at 19:36 I receive an email from Mozilla with the title "Sync your bookmarks, history and logins".

So either the email preferences does not work or the email does not respect the preferences I have set. Either way it's always extremely annoying when this happens and it leaves me wondering if Mozilla takes privacy seriously.

Even worse is, I already have sync set up (which doesn't work anyway as I have written about here).

Pictures attached as "proof" for those who are in doubt.

Hi,

Writing in some distress here. Had Firefox open with a lot of tabs, most relevantly hundreds of pages relevant for my PhD research, when my computer decided to re-start on its own. When I opened Firefox afterward I was greeted by the "What's new with Firefox" page, all my tabs gone. Both "Recently Closed Tabs" and "Recently Closed Windows" were completely empty. "Restore Previous Session" is greyed out and unclickable. After looking up solutions to this problem online I went to my profile at C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles, and discovered there was no sessionstore-backups folder there. There is a file called sessionstore.js, but it has last been modified May 2017. I checked and my history is still all there. Is there anything I can do, or do I need to go over the thousands upon thousands of entries there in search of the ones relevant for my research?
