When opening a new tab from my Yahoo homepage, I would automatically see a page with buttons at the top of my most commonly used websites---amazon, my email, my bank, etc.

Below those buttons would be links to about a dozen feature-length articles (each link had an image and brief description of the article) from different online news and magazine sources (WAPO, NY Times, New Yorker, Esquire, Vox, etc.) These articles were feature articles and not ads, and they varied in length.

Someone was working on updating my Windows 10 and now I can't access that page. I don't have a name for that page but I do miss it. How can I access that page again?

Hello

There is a facility on the new (about 2 years old) BBC sounds "my sounds" app that Firefox is unable to use. The facility is known either as "remember where you are on a programme" or "pick up where you left off on a programme" I am using a Linux PC and a Windows desktop with the same problem on both.

I have checked with the BBC and confirmed that I have the correct settings and cookies enabled, which I am able to change through Firefox, but Firefox can't store how many minutes in I am on a programme, although it can access the same information when that is stored by Internet Explorer. In other words if I listen for 10 minutes to a particular programme on Internet Explorer, then stop and find it on Firefox, Firefox always goes back to that 10 minute spot, no matter how much further I listen. I am in contact with the BBC about this too.

I suddenly have a problem with Firefox NOT showing certain images (linked ones I think) on various websites. It's not across the board, just about a dozen or so websites.

I briefly got some kind of Webp message that quickly blinked off before I could see what it said. I'm including two screenshots to show the problem I'm having.

Hi, I've seen this posted before, but the answer doesn't work for me or my computer. when I click on the searchbar to enter a URL, there are four websites that are pinned and have a little grey world symbol with a pin in them. I have not been to those sites in a couple years and they are not the most popular ones i visit. Prior answers have indicated clicking on the 3 dots (ellipses) and unchecking or clicking to Unpin this Tab. None of the four sites are showing as pinned, so it is a different solution.

I am running Firefox 78.0.2 thanks.

I've been a Mozilla/Firefox user for a long while. Every few months an updated version or additional features are added. At the same time other companies have offered features which seem to me to be worthwhile addition/protections. I now have Facebook Container, AdBlock Plus, Ghostery, Enhancer for YouTube, Safer Search, Ad Observer, HTTPS Everywhere and Track Me Not running. Considering what Mozilla/Firefox provide as part of their platform, do I need any of these? Are they redundant at best or dangerous at worse? At 73, it's easy to believe.

Thanks for any advice. It is most appreciated.

For instance this page on Indiamart is missing some images and other parts when I'm browsing it in normal mode. However it works fine in a private tab.

I already reset firefox settings in the troubleshooting menu. I uninstalled any addons, and I even deleted my profile folder in AppData\Roaming. Still no change.

Anything else I can do?

I had established and used a Firefox sync account.

I had problems with my configuration so i disconnected my main computer and my laptop from logging in.

I now wish to establish the FireFox configuration on this computer as the template configuration, but if i log into the account i fear that those existing settings that contained fault somewhere are going to start downloading and over-riding these settings.

Would anyone out there be so kind as to advise how i can safely accomplish this while using my existing credentials, and if not possible, the least complicated alternative?

Thank-You for considering my problem!!!
