I had to restore my hard drive and lost the icon short cut to one of my email accounts. I tried creating a new short cut following Firefox Help; however, the instructions are inaccurate or out of date. There is no "icon on the left of the address bar". Alternatively I discovered that I could drag another part of the email display and create an icon for the email service but it is created as an Edge Chromium (damn Microsoft!) which was just installed via a Microsoft update. From my research I discovered that Microsoft has so embedded Edge Chromium that removing it runs the risk of making the OS unstable. My question: is there a way were I can create an icon for my email service that will launch in Firefox and not Edge Chromium?

I have 4 tabs on my home page. 2 of them open normally, 2 do not. If I click on the address bar of one of the tabs that does not load, a list of recent URLs drops down, with the URL of the tab on top. At the end of the URL, is the work "Visit". If I click on Visit, the URL loads. The other 2 tabs load normally. I am on Windows 8.1 and have the latest Firefox version. I believe this just started to happen after I upgraded. I have tried to use the troubleshoot Restart with add-ons disabled. Did not solve the problem.

Mac OS X, 10.15.7. Macbook Air 2012. Firefox version 81.

After starting Firefox, I'm taken to a blank page (my default new tab is about:home.) If I type in an address and hit Enter, nothing happens. When I hit enter again, it finally starts to browse. This happens every time I start Firefox fresh. If I hit CMD+Q then start Firefox again, and type in an address, and hit Enter, it does nothing. Not until I try again does it work.

When I close firefox either with the exit button under the 3-bar menu or the red x, ALL the files that have anything to do with session restore including the sessionstore-backup folder get deleted.

I have a backup of my session from a previous crash so when I lost my tabs yesterday I figured id just use that and get most of what I lost back. Then when I restarted my PC and re-opened firefox all my tabs were missing again so I used the backup again and after a few tests I realized the files and folder were being deleted on exiting the browser. The strange thing is I did a refresh using the tool under about:support and it created all the sessionstore files that were missing but then deleted them when I closed the browser.

I am using firefox to watch recorded lectures on Microsoft Streams. The video started out smoothly and increase to shutter every few seconds after a while (~5 mins) and pause itself without me touch any keys. I tried continue playing the video and this persist. I tried refresh the tab and the problem appears after a while again.

The only add on I have is Adblock.

Firefox did an update today, and restarting it, all my installed addons are gone. On top of that, my personal theme is no longer there.

Saved passwords, on the other hand, do not seem to be affected.

Any advice on how to restore the addons, in particular? My current version Firefox 76.0 on Fedora. Any help is appreciated!

Je n'ai aucun son avec ma version de firefox 81.0.2, la vidéo fonctionne par contre. Je suis sous windows 10 home, aucun problème par contre avec Edge ou google chrome, l'absence de son est vraiment propre à Firefox car le son fonctionne parfaitement avec les autres navigateurs et les autres applications. Ce ne sont pas non plus les extensions qui sont responsables car démarré avec les modules désactivés c'est pareil, l'anti virus n'est lui non plus pas en cause. J'ai désinstallé Firefox puis ré-installer c'est pareil ! j'ai aussi démarré avec un nouveau profil sans succés Le problème peut-il venir de la config de Firefox ? je précise aussi que mes plugins sont à jour Pouvez-vous m'aider ? mon adresse mail : galium.aparine@laposte.net

Hello Everyone,

Last Friday (10/16/20) I opened a pdf file from a link that expired at the end of the day. I believe I clicked "open" instead of "save" and was able to view the pdf from the browser with a URL destination leading to a directory in my computer. No sweat, its on the computer... I figured I can access it later on. Today I look in my temp folder (URL destination) and my downloads, and can't find the file. I go to my firefox Library and see that the file is in the "downloads" section. However, it says that the file is moved or missing, and I don't remember moving or deleting this file...

Any idea what firefox did with this file? Is there any way i can restore it or restore firefox history containing the file data? Appreciate any help. Thank You.
