Firefox was hanging up. I got frustrated and I ended the session using task manager. On restart my windows came back, but the tabs were missing the page information. I ended the firefox session again, and did a restart of windows for good measure, hoping to get everything restored.

Then, when windows restarted, I restarted firefox, and I was presented two options - SAFE MODE, or REFRESH. I did SAFE MODE. Things looked ok, so I ended that session, and tried restarting again, hoping to restart normally, without SAFE MODE on. I got the same two options again - SAFE MODE or REFRESH. So, I thought REFRESH would get me back to my prior session. Nope. That reloaded a bunch of things, like bookmarks, etc. and gave me a new session.

So, I looked under the three line menu. No ability to RESTORE PREVIOUS SESSION!

I also looked in my profile as found in ABOUT:SUPPORT - PROFILE FOLDER, and in my SESSIONSTORE-BACKUPS folder in my profile folder my RECOVERY.baklz4, and my RECOVERY.jsonlz4 have todays date as DATE MODIFIED, but only are 33kb each - way to small for the hundreds of tabs I had open in multiple windows - I believe.

So, do I have any other recovery session folders available that I might be able to use?

Hello,

My time is wrong in Firefox. When I see the time stamps of my productivity on any social or business site, they are about 4 hours ahead. In other browsers (Chrome & Edge), everything is fine. In Windows, my time is properly set. This includes my Time Zone in Control Panel as well.

I have uninstalled Firefox, restarted, and did a fresh install. I am having the same issue.

  • Desktop Firefox to iOS Firefox

What doesn't work:

  • iOS Twitter to desktop

Hi there, long time firefox user here, but I have a problem. It seems there was an update to fire fox last night and this morning when I tried to launch Firefox I get this "Windows cannot find 'C:\Users\Lynn\AppData\Local|Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again." This comes up each time I launch Firefox. I've looked on line for help and I am at a loss. I can't get the browser to run & I'm afraid that the bookmarks that I've had on there for many years may have been lost. Can anyone help me with figuring out what I need to do to fix this, I've loved Firefox from day 1 when I installed it and this is really the first time I've had a problem like this. Any help would be appreciated, thanks

Since updating to Mac OS Catalina, Firefox is displaying some text/fonts on websites as boxed question marks. I have tried some of the suggested fixes including: 1. lowering the security.sandbox.content.level to a value of 2, 1, or even 0, but no success. 2. Type about:preferences#content<enter> in the address bar. Across from fonts and colors, press the Advanced button. On the bottom, turn on Allow Web Sites To Choose Their Own. When checked - The boxed question marks appear. 3. The problem is only happening in Firefox. No problem in Safari. (see image)

Thanks for your help and assistance

I just tried to add a secondary email address to my Firefox account and get an error message stating that this email address is in use by another Firefox account user (already verified by another user).

Is there a way of finding out which account it is registered to? I can't recall ever using this email address in Firefox before?

Since I upgraded my macbook to Catalina, I found that my macbook can longer automatically go to sleep when the lid is open. And the culprit seems to be the firefox browser, because in the activity monitor, it always shows that firefox is preventing the sleep.

Is there any reason that firefox is preventing my laptop to sleep? And how can I turn it off.

I won't check a box that opts me into observational and INTERVENTIONAL studies that I won't even be aware that I'm in since I don't look every 5 minutes at the settings and may do things like the evil sort of one fb ? did that changed your emotions.

That's a great example of why I moved to Firefox from Chrome and am wary of Facebook.

I'd be more than happy to check a box that says: "Please offer me any/all studies I may be eligible for including add'l questions to see if I'm eligible, with a reasonable stab at assent (not even informed consent). And of course whether data is anonymous (truly, as in after the study even if you wanted to you couldn't figure out which person was which), or not. Not anonymous may be fine....depending on the study. My very best, really, you're great....AND I'd be happy to discuss, advise (see below)...my 'toolbox' isn't simply biomedical. Darren


(Just me being pedantic now ignore this as you wish: And you say "study" ... I'm a researcher (sometimes)...IRB, grants, peer review, publications. Research is the "creation of generalizable knowledge." Is that what you're doing? I suspect you're doing more "quality improvement" where you figure out what works better for you...and SOMETIMES that is generalizeable knowledge (i.e., certain colors make people happy in every browser not Firefox specific), but do you publish it as peer reviewed research? Now, it's TOTALLY FINE if you don't and it's QI....but would specify that and not call it studies...call it...evaluating improvements or whatever. The use of the word 'study' and 'research' drive me nuts since when we talk to people about actual 'studies' and 'research' they conflate that with marketing evaluations of what makes us by more or which candidate we're interested in or how to sell things to us.)

I clicked on the Private Network icon when FF loaded, before I got the prompt to input my master password. After I input my master password FF crashed. After restarting FF, Now Private Network is asking me to "Login to FF account" when I click on the already dimmed Private network account. But, I'm already logged in. Also, When I enter my user/pass on the prompt to login again, I get a alert to check email and put the code in... That code never works(see attached screenshot). I get a red alert bar on the email code screen that there is a security issue.

So is there a timeout for such a issue? or ?

As the subject says, my print dialog shows on the wrong monitor. Usually with other apps you can bring the program to the correct monitor and close it there then it opens there as well. I move FF around from time to time but my main monitor gets the most use. To test this weird issue, I moved FF to the second monitor and tried printing there, the dialog shows up on my main LOL. What causes the print dialog to show up on the wrong screen, or even why does it always choose another screen other than the one FF is being displayed on? Is there a setting or option to correct this? The reason this is problematic is I don't always turn on the second on, so if i want to print a receipt or something I have to turn on the second monitor(which for me takes a bit, first the main blanks out then second turns on then first "catches up"). I hope someone can point me in the right direction.

Given that Firefox Developer Edition isn't typically packaged by distros, the only way to install it is manually unpacking the tarball from Mozilla to some suitable location and manually write a .desktop entry. But now that the main Firefox build is available as a Flatpak, are there any plans for publishing Developer Edition that way as well?
