I was working with my Internet Provider and in an attempt to solve and issue they had me delete my History, Cache, Cookies, and so on. After doing so, Firefox will no longer remember anything from my History. Every time Firefox closes it erases all of it. I have to login to my email 25 times a day now. I have changed all the settings that Help has listed and they have changed nothing. Please, Help.

I have recently been encountering issues with Twitch.tv that were not present even two and a half weeks ago. I keep getting a blacked out screen with an "error #3000" message. The only known website that seems to deal with the issue comes at the problem from the idea that people are trying to access the site via Chrome. The few options they suggested that I can apply to my machine— clearing the cache and cookies or else using CCleaner offered no help.

This is not consistent however, as some other twitch channels I go to work perfectly fine. It's worth noting that I was not encountering this issues with Firefox version 78.0.2, while I am currently on version 79.0, and this is the version that has brought this issue up. Should I try downgrading to the previous version and see if that helps, or what?

Does anyone else get this error message, and if you do, what did you do to fix it? The few things I could try, I already have, save for turning off the hardware acceleration, which I don't think is the problem, as if it were, I would have seen it weeks ago when this wasn't an issue.

I am including a screenshot of what I'm seeing.

Problem between Ashampoo Snap and Firefox. I am having troubles with snapshots made with Ashampoo Snap from Firefox outputs. Ashampoo says it is with the latest? Firefox and they have fixed it with a later update. However it has not gone away with the latest Snap. It appears to me (a programmer since 1982) that it might be a with a key sequence that is used to get a Snap copy that is interpreted by Firefox in some way. What happens is that it loook like a list of past usage in Firefox as is found with options History but with more detail as in a snap of part of a usage history made from my last usage of Firefox with more details as you can see. I have not been able to reproduce it in Firefox. Thanks Ron.

So I play a lot of Second Life. One of the things I enjoy doing is shopping around and visiting new places in the game. Most folks use something called a "SLURL" which looks something like this:

https://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Tropical%20Dream/243/46/26

Upon clicking that a secondlife page opens up displaying the location with a "visit this location" button.

Normally, when I click that button it would send the info to my Second Life game and present me with a pop up in-game so I can visit the place.

However now, each time I click the "visit this location" button the browser would fire up another instance of Second life. Even if I login with that new one it continues to open up another copy of the game for me despite it already running.

Any ideas on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated

I've have a Lenovo Ideapad L340 for app 3 years and everything ran fine. Recently (last few days) video and youtube playbacks are garbled in audio and seem to be looping a very small portion of the file while the visual part does not display. The circular arrow just keeps spinning. Wave files not running through a browser work fine. This issue occurs in Windows Edge and Explorer as well. Thank you.

Not a big deal, but it's clearly new in the last week? or so: Here's a webpage with lots of forum links on it: https://www.bogleheads.org/index.php Clink a link, takes you to that post's thread. Then go back to first page (click left arrow, or type alt-<) and there are all the same links you first saw, BUT the one you just visited would normally have changed to indicated it's now a visited link (my default scheme is blue to purple). The "PROBLEM" is (like I said, not huge) that now the link is NOT changing to purple, it stays blue. If I click within a blank space within the the page, sometimes that makes the color change happen, but sometimes not. There's some sort of "refresh" that's not taking place (reliably) like it used to. Going to the same link a 2nd time and then back seems invariably to change that link's color.

Like I said, it's NOT a big issue, but it IS real, and it's NEW! That's all.
