Firefox 50.0.2 Fedora 24 Workstation 64bit

I have firefox running and I accidentally deleted the entire .mozilla directory. I haven't shut down Firefox and I anticipate that everything will disappear if i close and reopen it to use profile manager.

Is there any way to get firefox to save the profile for my existing session?

I am looking to replace this extension with one compatible with FF 60+ I was previously using Clone Window (https://www.bigdropinc.com/resources/mozilla/)

I want the STANDARD action of New Windows/New Tab to open a cloned copy of the window or tab I am currently on including the nav back browsing history.

Any recommendations on an extension (the ones I have found either require a modifier key or dont retain the nav back history)

I have two add-ons which are crucial to my use of FireFox, and I am looking for a compatible third add-on.

The two add-ons that I use (which work together) are "Vertical Tabs Reloaded" which allows me to see my huge number of tabs vertically (as a left-hand, always-open, resizable window) and "Duplicate in Tab Context Menu" which allows me to duplicate a tab complete with history and filled in forms.

The add-ins that I have found so far, either set up categories of tabs as tiles or as menus. I need to be able to combine tabs into tabs instead. That way, I can see everything in my single vertical tab list, yet shrink the tab list so that I do not need to scroll so much.

Can you suggest such an add-in?

Appreciatively, David D.

There is weird problem that I am facing in Firefox. Details

- I and opening a page which has multiple divs which animates when "Next" is clicked binging up the next div.
- After the next div shows up, I see a blank screen, but after highlighting the text or hovering the buttons the controls shows.
- The text is not in white, and it the same code works propely on IE 11 and Chrome

Please see the attached images for more details on the issue. The page text is not completely visible. The visible is one that I had highlighted, including the buttons. The one's not visible are a text box, button and some more text.

Any help would be really great. Thanks

I created 2-step verification on Google. I also used the setting there to enable trusted devices.

When I used Firefox to log onto Gmail I received a code on my phone, entered it, and selected the option to not require a new code each time. However, I have to get a new code every time I start Gmail on Firefox.

This doesn't happen when I use Chrome.

Being a tidy person -- and no matter how comodious my computer's hard drive -- I'm always keen to clear out unused old junk and anything else no longer of use.

So, while glancing at my profile folder contents, I noticed 16 session-n.js files (where n is a number from 1-16). The dates on these are from 2009 to 2012, so I assume they're all expendable junk.

It's safe to delete, these, correct?

All Verizon accounts were transferred to AOL, but we could keep our same email address (name@verizon.net). I want to use Mozilla to avoid all the adds on AOL. I found instructions on what incoming and outgoing setting to use to transfer an AOL account. After setting up the account, it worked great, transferring all mail from AOL to Mozilla. But it has never worked again. The error message states that it is incorrectly signing it to AOL. for a Verizon account. How do I get someone at Mozilla has to change this setting for the AOL/Verizon account to work?

I am using an Oracle application called OracleEPM version 11.1.2.3.500. as of two weeks ago, I noticed once I login, the toolbar that has the administration, tools, etc... does not allow me to click on it anymore. other functionality within the application works. Can you suggest me trying something? IE still works fine, so I don't think its an update to my laptop, but perhaps an update to Firefox???? Please help.

It's really simple, why don't you actually fix the plugin container issue? Your fixes do not work for the most part, have never worked and will never work. While Chrome has some similar issues, they are not as browsing halting issues as Firefox has. You do all these updates, but you never seem to work on the single bigge4st issue that your browser has had from day one.
