In settings I Included url to be remembered. Also, before login at a website, I even checked box 'Remember Me'. Problem: Banking login insists on second verification because, apparently, it fail to recognize this, one single PC that I use always. Seek help. Thank you.

Norton just told me that Firefox downloader downloaded bugs in both their updates and patches! My computer HAD started having problems a few days ago that I noticed (hanging up on the lock screen, not letting me sign in). Then Norton found the bugs. Said they were new but high risk. What's going on???

I have 2 windows of firefox and i close it using bat file. Which terminates process firefox. I used it like that long time and never had problem. However i launched firefox and it said some error and gave me 2 choices: either start in safe mode or refresh. I clicked on refresh and now all my tabs are gone. I checked under history and closed windows - there is nothing... Any way to get my tabs back?

Also how to avoid this issue, if you close window one by one. Than you go to go to library and history and manually restore window, or press some hotkey. Even that is annoying, instead of just using bat file to kill process and than you have both windows open. Because sometimes close window won't safe, if you use hotkey. So i gave up on that...

For some reason my banking statements don't open. Also, some other pdf's won't open either. I think this started with FF79 and now on FF80.0.1. I was hoping the bug would be fixed but it obviously hasn't. My settings have always been the same for years without any problems. I accused my bank of not keeping up with FF but after other pdf's weren't opening, then I realised (as my bank did) that it's a bug in FF. I use Acrobat Reader as my default and I've tried everything others have tried on this forum. I've only ever used FF but I reluctantly used Edge and it works. Will FF fix this problem as I don't wish to use another browser? Not sure what FF did with the new updates but it has caused problems.

Hi, I have had a very bad change in my computer, where my system was removed. I could not get it back and was helped to get some things back. In my computer, many things are very different to view things, so makes anything I can do is missing I need to have my Bookmarks, lost on the 16th. They will help me a great deal. Is there anyway to get my original Bookmarks List?

A Lil More; I had the song went off line on iTunes.  I found something that said it would fix that.  Loaded it and let it go, when I came back 2 hours ago.  All my programs were deleted.  If I could get that back, that would even be better.  Thanks so much.  Rene

when searching in the address bar at the top, the links appear to the right, misaligned because of the page titles

for me, the link is what i use to figure out which page i want, while the title is really hard to figure it out, having the link on the left would make it alot easier and faster to figure out which to click

(in the upload, the top one is firefox, the bottom is chromium, i need the order chromium uses)

For some reason, YouTube is not being very responsive to my account. I've logged in and out of my Gmail account to view YouTube on Firefox and there are several problems that are troubling me.

1. It doesn't recognize me as a logged in user but as a guest. Even when I'm logged in, YouTube still sees me as a guest. For example when I click on the Bell icon on the top right of the site I can't view my notifications at all from those who've I've subscribed.

2. There is no human way to access account settings as a "logged" in user. I tried modifying the settings by clicking on the gear icon on the top right. The options for settings only appear "normal" for a logged user for a split second till it gets overwritten in appearance by a prompt for people who are guests on YouTube.

I still have access to subscriptions only by opening another tab and through that subscription tab I can still view things normally such as my playlists and history for example. But those two major problems persist.

I've logged into YouTube on Brave and no problems I mentioned happened.

I use Firefox from the early versions, mainly on Linux, never had big problems. For a few months I have been using Windows for work purposes, everything ok (more or less), except for Firefox, it crashes, and it crashes often too, also in Safe Mode.

I have the latest version of Firefox and the latest version of Windows 10. All software is updated, as well as drivers. I checked that there are no viruses, spyware or RAM errors.

This is the list of submitted crash reports: bp-ceb36099-bead-4aad-989d-da2bc0200906 bp-dbf421b7-2bc3-4149-a44c-947180200906 bp-70f3b3b6-ca60-473d-80fa-0bf030200906 bp-33bd2706-178e-4d79-901d-267a30200906 bp-d6d36f12-c70f-4fba-95e6-a98dd0200906 bp-704cd16a-871a-4913-8057-cee910200906 bp-d87dcab0-d25f-4b3e-9e3e-4eaac0200906 bp-152fa759-e41f-4217-b0ed-d887d0200906 bp-0d6ddc78-2867-4818-b662-36f490200906 bp-7108683b-d576-4e6a-a0a4-a78f20200906 bp-8dcbed1b-d570-4546-9b58-b91a80200906 bp-2a6e2800-c426-4eb7-bd5e-1aa590200906 bp-4db02839-9ef8-4323-a4c6-b609c0200906 bp-4a209a77-1050-4215-a191-343330200906 bp-0b77216d-9a29-4c50-ba2b-1183a0200906 bp-5b9256d7-9b93-477d-b391-fa93f0200906 bp-8eaa0cff-056a-49f1-8888-f5e960200906 bp-a91e7a0f-818a-4fd6-8b5b-35abb0200906 bp-43fe6b35-4892-49e4-a30d-d07b60200906 bp-b5c7fce1-d1d7-425d-beed-329ff0200906 bp-85845bf5-c766-483b-877d-4d0b70200906 bp-28e946bb-0f78-4dd7-9269-7c3790200903

For the second time in the past couple of weeks I have attempted to log into a website, found the password missing, then found all my passwords missing. I restored 3 different Mozilla folders from backup: User AppData>Roaming, AppData>Local, and ProgramData with no success.

I managed to recover my passwords by logging out of my FF, logging back in, and syncing with Lockwise on my Android phone; however losing passwords is a PIA. Why would this be happening and where are the passwords stored so I can recover from backup if necessary?

When using an internal website I usually get an error when using Firefox:

Bad request Cannot parse token. root cause: Unable to decrypt bytes [ (then a bunch of numbers).

If I clear cookies this then it works for a while. If I use Chrome or Edge it usually works although sometimes I get something similar. The IT chaps insist it's a browser issue(of course). I'd rather not have to keep clearing cookies - any thoughts?

I receive the message "A web page is slowing down your browser". I have read the other Firefox users posts with the same problem but none of the solutions solve the problem. I don't have this problem with Google's Chrome nor with Microsoft's browser. The main website this problem presents itself on is my preferred news site, FoxNews.com.

Since I would prefer to continue using Firefox please find the problem and FIX your Firefox browser! Thank you.

I had **two (2)** Firefox browsers. They both worked fine.

Each one had links to web pages that worked fine.

There was an automatic start last night - and only one browser returned. The browser had different bookmarks. (**All** of those bookmarks aren't useful.)

How do I get both Firefox browsers back after there is an automatic start?
