Hello,

I am desperately trying to recover lost tabs from Firefox Browser after 2 crashes, freezing and forced shutdowns. I need the tabs for my work, and as usually happens, this has occurred at a time when I'm running to meet a critical deadline.

I've tried going to history, but the "recently closed tabs" option was greyed out:-( I've tried searching for other solutions, but cannot fine any that fit my situation. I'm not an IT expert - I know my way around what I need to use (i.e. professional worker), so clear & simple explanation would be much appreciated.

Can I recover the lost tabs from backed up data or a previous system image? My system is Windows 7, and I'm currently running Firefox version 115.0.2. All suggestions welcome!

Thanking you in anticipation off prompt assistance, MLH

When writing reviews in Google Maps when you click post pictures from your computer (allowing one to browse your computer to find pictures to post) the tab crashes.

This occurs on other websites as well where one would browse the computer to attach documents, photos or videos. Heck, it even happens with this site (selecting browse to post picture causes firefox to crash).

This did not occur prior to updating to 115.0

I have multiple monitors and most often have Firefox windows open on each. Lately, I've been noticing that the Desktop Window Manager process is consuming a huge amount of RAM. At the same time, consumption completely disappears with the closing of Firefox windows. Video: https://i.imgur.com/pHCa7Hh.mp4 (I left it for a while then closed Firefox windows) After a while, I noticed that already 13 GB of memory is being used by DWM. I don't know if sites affect behavior, but most often I have https://music.yandex.ru/home open

OS: Windows 11 (Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.22621.1928]). Firefox: 115.0.1 (64-bit) Screen setup: 1 - 3840 x 2560 with 200% scale, 2 - 1920 x 1080 with 100% scale.

Here is a sample URL that works on Microsoft Edge (current version) and receives an error message on Firefox (115.0.2): https://www.t-mobile.com/home-internet The error received from the web site when using FF is:

Bad Request Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand. Size of a request header field exceeds server limit.

FF was working with all T-Mobile pages a few months ago and now fails with this same error on most pages.

To test on Edge, I pasted the identical address that failed in FF into Edge and it worked fine so I am confident I am comparing the same web page on the two browsers.

Thanks for your help. Claude

Firefox upgrade from 115 -> 116 results in “broken” screen capture

Reposting from https://discourse.mozilla.org/t/firefox-upgrade-from-115-116-results-in-broken-screen-capture/121964

Howdy folks!

I am on Arch Linux and recently upgraded Firefox from 115 to 116 and this broke WebRTC screen capture. Whenever I try to share my screen in Microsoft teams and Google Meet, the participants only see a black screen with a cursor. I am able to reproduce the issue on this test page. I had to downgrade to 115 in order to “fix” this critical feature. Before that it was broken in 114 and I had to use Chromium for presentations. I no longer want to touch Chrome with a 100 ft pole since they are trying to introduce Web Environment Integrity.

The only bug I have been able to find is from three years ago:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1640771

I don’t want to add a “me too” comment, but was wondering how to show/give my support to get this issue fixed? It is crippling to my work workflow, and I don’t want to be on 115 forever. I am an engineer so I can provide advanced support to a Firefox dev, just not development as firefox is gargantuan beast of a code base.

Any guidance or pointers would be appreciated, Thanks!

I have multiple internal websites, which all follow the pattern of [site.one.two] which resolves fine using the internal DNS server i have configured by going to https://site.one.two and through other programs via site.one.two, and all the [one.two] suffixes are blacklisted from being resolved with DoH in firefox, but it still forces a web-search, even with searching from address bar being turned off, instead of resolving through my local DNS server (local server resolves local domain suffixes, anything else gets resolved through cloudflare DNS). I haven't found a fix in any other forums, and there are enough unique internal addresses that manually adding each and [every site.one.two] as an exception would be something i would like to avoid. Is there any way to tell firefox to resolve through DNS first for addresses or domain suffixes?

I am currently fresh on Fedora 38 and Firefox 115 with multimedia codecs installed such as ffmpeg. I have problems playing videos on Facebook or Twitch, like in myday stories, reels, and feed. But in YouTube, videos plays perfectly so I think there is a bug going on here? I already tested turning hardware acceleration on and off but no avail.

I am a UK user and have just installed and started to use Firefox on a brand new Linux Mint installation. As I am transferring from a Windows/Chrome environment, there is a lot of setting up to do. Firefox transferred most of the chrome info for me, and so I was able to get up and running with bookmarks and logins quite quickly. However, there is one problem that I can't seem to resolve.

I have been able to set up my credit card details, and these are prompted when needed, BUT, Firefox will not remember my name, email, phone or address. Thus for every form that I have to fill, I have to enter these details, again and again (and again).

I have looked at settings and see that the 'Autofill Address' option is not present (see attachment).

I have followed and implemented the fix proposed elsewhere, to update/add GB as an address format. This has not made a difference.

Can anyone please help.

Regards,

Mark

Somehow this en.softonic nonsense has made it into my windows notifications tab under 'firefox' notifications. How can I get rid of it? I can't find it in the General, Add-on or Extensions settings of Firefox or Windows Uninstall to turn it off or remove it.

How can I get rid of it? I don't want it.

I have not been able to connect to www.paperbackswap.com for 2 days using Firefox. I get this message - The page isn’t redirecting properly-An error occurred during a connection to www.paperbackswap.com. This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies. This is a persistent problem happening every few days. I have sent messages before to PBS and Firefox with no response. I have cleared cookies and added PBS to Firefox as a site to always accept cookies. I can access the site using Chrome but I would prefer Firefox. Is there anything that can be done?

I have Mac 10.12.6 on an "early 2009" 27" iMac. I'm waiting for the new 27/32inch iMac until I upgrade hardware and operating system. The release notes with FF V115 say in part " Users on those operating systems will be migrated to the ESR 115 version of Firefox."

I want to clarify that when I update to FF 116, FF will automatically install the ESR version, or will I need to do this manually? Also, will this update take a long time, like FF will be installing a totally new (ESR) version, rather than "just" the usual update?
