Although I've checked the session restore box in Options, I had a problem. With different windows open, I closed the first one (with the tabs I wanted restored), worked with the second window, then shut down FF. When I went back to FF it would only restore the second window. I have an online backup service so I can retrieve AppData from a few days ago -- how do I use that to restore the session from the first window? thanks

I was going through a Web design tutorial and it suggested that I should tryout Web pages on different browsers. I downloaded Firefox but at the end or just after, the computer hung up and would not reboot. Black screen with flashing cursor. Did all the normal things like removing battery and peripheral devices and power connection.held power button down for 60 seconds. Reconnected battery and power. Switched on but exactly the same response. Just answer said it was a hardware problem as the power up was not kicking in. Have ordered a refurbished hp model but am concerned that the same thing will happen.

Hey Folks,

I can download animated gifs with no problem. Sometimes when I think I'm downloading a gif file, it turns out to be a png file... and it's only a single frame, like a jpg, instead of an animated file like a gif. Is there any way to save a png animation as an animated file like a gif instead of a single frame like a jpg? Thanks!

when i go into vr mode, for example in apainter, I can see on my monitor that it senses my motions but i can only see my home screen in oculus, nothing pops up, I have already tried everything that was suggested which is: going to nvidia control panel(turned up the power management settings), reinstalled firefox, restared oculus, reticked the setting that allows apps from unknown sources in oculus app, updated my nvidia drivers and restarted my pc. I have no where else to go now and I could really use some help. P.S: I use oculus rift, my gpu is Nvidia gtx 980Ti and I don't have an integrated gpu because my processor is Amd ryzen 1600

I FOUND MY ISSUE: I CLICKED TO ADD AN EXTERNAL APP ON OCULUS APP AND THEN ADDED FIREFOX.EXE

hi, have got jaws 2018, latest update on a toshiba satellite pro 64 bit system c-50-a. now when i use jaws and firefox 61, and when 60 came out, had a few bugs. the freedomscientific engineers could not rectify or reproduce this problem. some times on a certain site http://www.ebroadcast.com.au, jaws links won't come up and have to press 7 or 8 times before it comes up. and if i am on http://www.jw.org and then try to download a mp3, it goes to the desktop. and on http://www.gmail.com, in my spam folder, the first checkbox with the x key, but then have to hit it twice to jump to the next check box and also on http://groups.io, if i try to enter on a link, took me to the desktop. that's why using google chrome. if maybe james the who is the accessibility lead at mozilla to e-mail and try to reproduce the issues. that's why i am using google chrome at the moment. if i download firefox 62, will these issues be fixed. thanks, in australia.

When reading a long article without any mouse movement or other activity, the screen reverts to my screen saver after about 2 -3 minutes. The Windows system is set for 2 hours. As far as I can tell, there are no add-ons or extensions that are doing this. Testing the same web sites using Chrome, I do not have the problem. Nor do I see it with other applications.

None of these pages cover my topic but all you can seem to do is keep sending me to different effin pages. SO ONE MORE TIME. I DELETED MY FIREFOX PROFILE FROM MY COMPUTER BY ACCIDENT. IT IS NO LONGER THERE I CAN NOT REPAIR IT BECAUSE IT IS NO LONGER THERE. FIREFOX WILL NOT WORK BECAUSE IT CAN'T FIND MY PROFILE (well what was your first clue Col. Mustard?) ALL OF THE SUPPORT PAGES EXPLAIN HOW TO FIX THE PROBLEM BY GOING TO MY PROFILE.... IT'S NOT THERE. IT HAS BEEN DELETED!!! Now I have tried uninstalling firefox. and then downloading and installing a new version.....IT STILL WILL NOT WORK BECAUSE IT CANNOT FIND MY PROFILE, BECAUSE MY PROFILE HAS BEEN DELETED.

I have always been a firm believer in an addon-free life. I avoid third-party addons like the plague because I've always been paranoid of their capabilities of stealing data and sharing sensitive information.

But I'm starting to really get tired of ads, and after looking at some plugins available, I've decided I need to make certain aspects of my browser easier to use. OneTab for example is looking like something that would reduce a lot of headache in my life.

I decided to check up on Mozilla and their advice regarding addon safety, and came across this page: https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2018/02/01/understanding-extension-permission-requests/

and on that page, I came across this part of the article:


How do I stay safe? While there is an element of risk to installing any third-party software, there are a few simple best practices you can follow to reduce it. Is the extension made by a reputable developer? Are the user ratings high? Are the permission requests consistent with the features of the extension?


I have a bone to pick with this guideline or, "best practice".

Is the extension made by a reputable developer? Are the user ratings high?

First of all, does the fact that a reputable developer made the addon have any bearing on whether the addon is safe?

And second of all, the reputation of the developer is directly influenced by the user-ratings a developer's addon/s receive.

Google and Facebook are both majorly reputable companies, and they sell your data like Lemonade on a summer's day.

More importantly, user-ratings are only an indication of how well the advertised functions of the addon work. And I bet any addon developer who is developing an addon to do dirty work in the background, is definitely going to make sure that the advertised functions of the addon are in proper working order.

Another issue here is that, user-ratings consist primarily of users....The average Joe, not by security researchers, or even developers/coders. Does the average Joe really leave a user rating behind based on how safe he thinks the addon is?

Just a thought. Telling people that a "best practice" for determining the safety of an addon should factor in the user-rating seems a little misleading.

Regardless though, can Firefox not have a function that tells you what kind of info an addon is passing over the internet?

Thanks.

How do I get rid of the little "Also likes" gray tab above everyones comments on a post? How do I get rid of it on my comments that others can see? Maybe I don't want to share that information and maybe others don't want that shared either. I really don't want to see what someone else likes. Please tell me how to turn it off.

I started using the original Firefox (nee Mozilla in a browser & email package) when it was first publicly available. And have used it in my university classrooms and personally many years. Now, I am looking for an alternative that can give a) the common functions in today's browsers and b) the "skin" add-on Walnut 2. The current Walnut 2 imitations are, simply, just pathetic. So, I pose the question: Will Firefox EVER have a skin equivalent to Walnut 2? A followi-on question: Has the author of Walnut 2 ever been asked to participate in Firefox?
