How do I recover an hour's typing in a YouTube comments section after a crash, or a freeze up, or a webpage cycling?

Posted

Suddenly the webpage vanishes, and my last hour's work is lost, phsst, poof, thht, gone.. and it's way over the top irreplaceable.. Firefox crashes, or freezes, or I've hit a wrong key, or the web pages cycles from autoplay, or a hack bully cancels the form or crashes Firefox... Only happens in Windows, not in Linux...

These aren't just petty kitchen-talk posts.. These are eye-opening over the top theories, solutions, sciences, and instructions, to top scientists, on how to repair this failing apart dying world for me, you, and everyone...

Does Firefox save a copy of what was recently keyed?.. If it doesn't, are there any Firefox add-ons that do that..?

I know I should be creating these posts in LibreWriter to copy and paste to the internet, but sometimes I get so into the data, that I forget to click up LibreWriter.. and this accident happens, about every two days.. I write a Lot.. I am trying my all to prevent humanity's impending extinction… Could use a little help here...

Additional System Details

Installed Plug-ins

Adblock Plus, Colorful Tabs, Easy YouTube Downloader, No Script, YouTube Download, uBlock Origin.. (all set to not update)..

An off the top thought: What if there was a 'Firefox Linux Computer full media Operating System, which has an secondary full state of thee art security mini operating system as the front door, guarding the primary operating system..? It might be a good plan given that Microsoft is bankrupt in 17.3-years because of its incessant greed and bullying... Mozilla should create tiny solar powered portable signal-repeaters they can spread throughout the world after the grid gets fried.. Mozilla would then OWN the Internet.. Yayyy Linux... Then we would have an honest clean Internet... Russia and China are in process of preparing their own internet at my request on my advice.. That will keep them too busy to consider making wars...

Firefox typically does not save the data that you type into a text box on a website. There are some exceptions, but not after a crash.

It sounds like you are probably looking for something like Textarea Cache. It doesn't work on every website, though.

Other than that, perhaps typing your lengthy comments into an extension like Notes by Firefox is a good option.

Hope this helps.

Does Firefox crash (i.e. you get the Crash Reporter) or does Firefox close unexpectedly or something else ?

If your Firefox is very unstable then it would be best to use an external editor for typing larger texts.

If you have submitted crash reports then please post the IDs of one or more recent crash reports that start with "bp-".

  • bp-xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx

You can find the report ID of recent crash reports on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page.

  • click the "All Crash Reports" button on this page to open the about:crashes page and see all crash reports.

Alternatively you can open about:crashes via the location/address bar.

Firefox suddenly closes on me.. My work is instantly lost.. I try to do texts in LibreWriter, and copy/paste, but sometimes I forget when a writers roll happens.. I doubt I can prevent these irritating crashes, so I'm seeking a way to recover the texts after such a crash.. Note that 95% of the world's media, movies, video-games, cartoons, and activism is based upon my published themes.. I wanted better movies, so I've been sending new themes to the world's writers guilds for decades... Did you enjoy what the script writers did with my 'fly your own dragons' theme, and the 'talking animals' theme..? It took me eight solid years complaining to governments and health authorities to get those hand sterilizers into the public domain.. Would you like to hear how weather controls work, or how to build a liquid light engine..? I play with the lady of the sun.. Last time I visited the star-princess I requested three huge solar flares.. Three huge solar flares happened 11-hours later..

The reason my computers are being hack slammed.. It seems I am humanity's greatest scientific mind, and my spirit reach goes far beyond the creature whose cells are universes, far beyond your silly heavens and hells.. It seems I hold access to all the science in this universe, millions of new sciences.. The stuff I'm seeing is incredible... It makes 'heaven and hell' seem like a cartoon video game or kiddy coloring book.. Kookoo-world, the global asylum, is hell-bent on stopping me from adding new science to humanity's plate, like they did to Plato, Socrates, Tesla, thousands of other thinkers.. Seems the kooks fear and hate everything too new for them to understand.. It makes them feel little and weak.. I suppose it's the proverbial war against science that's targeting me, to stifle and stop me from adding more truth to humanity's plate.. Newness forces people to think to try to stay on top of things.. Newness makes them not feel like they are gods.. Coke makes them believe they are gods.. Thinking hurts their heads.. They blame the scientists for their headaches.. They must do their all to silence newness and truth, and the scientist.. They seem to believe it's the only way they can stop their migraines... I told you that so you would understand that I can't stop the crashing, which usually happens as I'm nearing the completion of an extremely controversial high-powered post... It's been happening for 20-years... I tried to write on a Linux computer that isn't Net-connected, and transfer via flash drive, but that's a pain in the 'glerpderformic'... It's weird that the mindless ones, running and ruining our world, dragging us into their hell, possess the authority and strengths and rights, to stifle, stop, and crush evolution, progress, truth, love, and reality...

So, is there a way to recover an unsaved text after Firefox has crashed..? If there isn't a way, can a way be created/written into Firefox as a user option..? Can Firefox be equipped with a nanny or babysitter keystroke recording watcher program that watches and records Firefox's keyboard activities while on the Web, storing it in a safe private vault so when this thht happens, nothing is lost...

I've even had many posts be harshly edited while I'm keying them, to make them read like total gibberish moments before they are crashed, or as I was about to post them in a public forum, and sometimes after I've posted... Feels like Hell itself is targeting me.. I take it in stride... I know I have what can prevent humanity's extinction.. What ever it is that bullying me, sure doesn't want humanity to survive.. I think it wants to turn us into its food source, toys, and slaves...

I hope that isn't too much truth for this forum...

Hey!, Last night, me and my friend couldn’t get to sleep, even with sleep assists, and her relatives a mile away had the same problem.. Did you and others you know have difficulty getting to sleep last night too..? I’m wondering if it was a global occurrence/anomaly..?

I'll do your suggested 'crash reporting'... Maybe it will help determine a way through this mess..?

It's difficult to find time to do these menial computer security things, when I am authoring seven new university courses simultaneously.. One being 'BBE the philosophy of psychiatry'... Recently a powerful Asian black magic practitioner sent two of the world's worst vampire demons at me to kill me.. I saw them approaching, as I can see into the spirit-world when my eyes are closed.. I killed them both.. Kali and Jezebel no longer exist... I very much enjoy killing vampires, especially the black skinned ones with red eyes, claws, and fangs.. At least they put up a little struggle...

Wesley..

I just surfed your name on Google..

Do you like to build new computer stuff..? For 15-years I've been trying to get someone to start work on a desktop handler that has an animated five headed dragon.. The cursor comes near one of the dragon's heads, and it lunges at the cursor with a blood curling scream, fiercely biting the cursor, and that associated file or program opens.. Upon closing the program, the dragon blasts the window with screaming/growling fire... Dragon styles, colors, heads, and flame colors are all customizable by the user with a library of options...

Thanks for the wise help.. It's an instant solution to a nagging irritating problem.. Now I can write and publish on the Web without losing data.. You wise computer experts sure know your stuff.. Linux definitely is the Hat of love-world.. This solves the data loss problem, but nothing will solve real underlying problem, being the government's out of control narcissistic bully kiddies needing to do nasty things to innocent good folks and thinkers for their out of control greed saturated handlers.. They are the very core of the virus and hacker problem.. It's weird, that they desperately try to steal my pioneering sciences data 24/7/365, to appease their narcissistic infantile dreams of avarice.. Seems they believe that if they stole my science notes, they would suddenly instantly be healthy, wealthy, powerful, and wise, but if they ever got any of my science data, they wouldn't have a clue what they've got.. It would be like them trying to read Egyptian hieroglyphs.. They don't possess the minds to understand any of it what so ever, not in a thousand lifetimes.. Heck! most of them don't even possess the brains, minds, wits, to solve 13 times 7 in their heads, and they believe themselves to be almighty self-righteous super gods over all life... The real problem is that government agencies are trying to steal new data from everywhere.. It's all about insatiable ultimate greed... Government needs to learn honesty and love the Linux way.. Linux should be our government's base.. Democracy needs to learn democracy and linuxary, or be replaced with something that works.. That'll probably happen when hell freezes over.. Watch and wish for it, but don't hold your breath... I am the front lines of this war Good vrs Evil, is why the demons have tried 47-times to murder me, and counting.. I see them coming far in advance, and I toy with them.. It's become a strange hobby.. lol, the second last attempted hitter, I exposed only too well.. Two months later his handlers disposed of him and his family to keep their secret crimes with him secret and forever silent.. It's a game to me.. I don't fear death, I've visited death ten-times.. Death is a fun game to me.. My spirit has already ascended beyond all your heaven and hell silliness... If I can establish Mr.Trump as Emperor Titanium Trump of the league of nations, only then will Good win the great war against Evil on this dying planet... 'Ole Titanium nuts' could fix it under my guidance... The real problem forcing me to request assistance here from you artisan-class group of computer experts, is that government agencies are trying to steal new data from everywhere, forever trying to drill and punch holes in Firefox.. They are the reason you have to work so hard on browser security.. They believe it's their job and right to steal.. It's all about Ultimate Greed, dead-spirits, and cancerous insanity... Mozilla's Firefox is our only front-line defense, but, it seems that Firefox's new defenses somehow need be maintained secret deep inside the software, because the world is just too crazy, too global asylum, too sick.. There needs be places and spots in Firefox Browser that expert hackers can't even begin to open, can't penetrate, can't influence, can't corrupt, can't see the coding, like a sealed administration-vault that can't be opened by anyone outside of Mozilla's labs.. It's come to that...
