Hi,

I lost all my windows and tabs on the latest firefox upgrade and I am trying to restore the session.

I've done this many times in the pat and I know it is as simple as renaming the old session file and moving it, but I never seem to remember exactly what I need to rename and move! I wish there was a simple tool that did this, as I always seem to waste a lot of time trying to remember and figure it out.

Anyway, I found the previous session in the backup session folder . I renamed it: "sessionstore.jsonlz4" and moved it to the main folder - but this didn't work. Actually, whatever happened it erased the file! Fortunately I still have another version of the file backed up.

What do I need to name this file and where do I need to put it so that Firefox will recognize it as a previous session and allow me to load it?

Thank you for your help.

Since 2016 i've been using firefox on PC and i've been perfectly content with it until a few minutes ago I discovered this annoying blemish that i'd rather not have in my menu bar when browsing, except I can't delete, alter, or move it in any feasible way because I want my 'more' folder to be visible for easy access. Has anyone been able to remove this? Help would be much appreciated.

Windows 7 Pro, Firefox, current, 84.0.2.

I've tried logging out and back in, I've cleared ALL history, cache, cookies, etc. I've tried restarting Firefox, no help. Gmail, Voice and contacts all show fine. This was working fine last night, less than 12 hours ago. System was shut down last night, and booted this morning, and this problem has occurred. Logged in via Chrome and calendar shows fine, so it's likely some probem with firefox. Hate to reset firefox and have to load all my extensions again.

Here are the extensions/Add-ons I have loaded. But bear in mind these were loaded last night, and have been loaded for many months at least, with no problems. AND, other Google site, gmail,voice, contacts all work fine.

Adblock Plus Bitwarden Don't Fuck with Paste Facebook Container Flash and Video Download Gmail reverse conversation Google Analytics Opt-out Google Analytics Opt-out Add-on (by Google) HTTPS Everywhere IDM: Youtube to MP3 Javascript Switcher Lastpass Open With Print Edit WE SingleFile

Below pic is what I see. Blue bar at top scrolls left to right continuously.

I've tried the Firefox reset/refresh option, exact same issue.

I'm even willing at this point to uninstall Firefox and reinstall from scratch, but how do I ensure ALL Firefox system modifications, etc. ARE removed?

HELP!

Thanks.

What does Sync do? (My primary concern is that I do not want to lose information) ... I am NOT talking about how to set Sync up, but when I execute "Sync NOW" ... what does it do?. There are many ways a sync can be performed.if I don't understand what it does, I can lose information. If i execute "Sync NOW" - does can Sync both push or pull information? - will Sync push information from the computer where I am sitting ... to a server or buffer then push to all my other devices? ... or will it push directly to all my devices? ... or instead of pushing ... without warning, Sync pulls information to my device? - Is the transfer of information immediate or is there some type of buffer? - Is the transfer of information a (complete or partial) merger or does it override all existing information? - Is the complete transfer of information immediate or is it buffered? - when pulling information does it inform of a timestamp on the information source of when it was last updated? - are these operations immediate, scheduled, or automatic? Do you see where I am going? ... I need to be able to predict Sync's performance.

Please help a single mom with our personal computer in the house hold that is for school work only. It is on windows 7 and we need to COMPLETELY BLOCK/DISABLE ALL access to the youtube website. I can not figure out how (upgrading to the newest windows version is an IMPOSSIBLE option right now unless they've made it free, thanks to the circumstances created by COVID-19). Thank you in advance.

Disabling autoplay on ESPN website

Hello,

Why is firefox unable to prevent autoplay of bluecove videos on espn?

muted or non muted? doesn't matter. autoplay set in config? doesn't matter. manipulating settings in about:config? works until the next update.

It's seems to me that after each update the developers at espn are actively searching for ways to circumvent your technology. I've visited bluecoves website, including one they have for testing a wide variety of autoplay features and each one functions as expected - their videos do not play.

But go to espn.com and every single video plays continuously and loudly. Note I do not have an espn account and I keep my cache and cookies cleaned out. A website should still respect the settings in my browser.

What gives? What can be done about this? What is going on that espn is one of the few websites that seems to never respect any autoplay denial feature firefox delivers? How does this get fixed? Why when I do a search in the forums about espn there isn't a single search result returned? I type in 'chicken' and 4 hits. espn 0.

Please help

Transferred Firefox and other programs to new computer; however, my Google toolbar (especially bookmarks of concern) did not transfer. I downloaded it again (more than once); it shows up on my Tools/Addo-ons as enabled but does not show up on the View/Toolbar section (never since new computer). I uninstalled and reinstalled, but no luck. What now?

It just started recently. I disabled all plugins but it still didn't fix it. I also tried reseting my preferences and using safe mode, but it still didn't fix it. I've opened firefox on other users on my computer and there's no problem with them. When i put my cursor over any icon on my toolbar, menu bar included, it used to just appear as rounded edge rectangle highlighting the icon. but now it's a white lined not rounded rectangle. I just like the way it used to look. now it just makes firefox seem like an older version
