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.

Hey, this just recently started happening but whenever I try to playback video (mainly on twitch) the tab crashes immediately.

I've tried starting Firefox in safemode and disabling add-ons; crashing still occurs either way. I tried opening streams on Chrome and they open up fine. I have also tried clearing my cache and disabling hardware acceleration. Lastly, I have also ran windows DISM and sfc.

Also, youtube videos work fine but I can't watch twitch streams.

Here are my crash reports: https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/78bc74ac-8f7c-4ced-938e-5c7b60201020 https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/9a8a8819-2a42-4600-aeae-78c430201020 https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/80d64d3b-d525-49b9-877c-17ba70201020 https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/72b02da3-cf5a-46a2-b024-a587d0201020

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.

A website I use with Firefox is very, very slow, although it was fast in the past. When I try it on my wife's computer the website is fast, yet my computer is newer and better than hers, so there is some kind of problem in my computer. The website is www.statcan.gc.ca. I can access Twitter and numerous other websites on my computer with no problems, but this one is deathly slow. Trouble is...I use it all the time.

I am running macOS Catalina Ver 10.15.7 on a Mac Pro. I removed Adobe Flash, emptied the cache, history, cookies, reinstalled Firefox and rebooted my computer. Did not help. The statcan website worked fine for years and now it is deathly slow, apparently for me only. Other sites are normal speed. I am puzzled. Any suggestions appreciated.

Cannot log into bank site I've used before without a problem using with Firefox. Bank customer service tells me that Firefox having compatibility issue with it and I should download Google for it to work. What is the point to use another browser that I dropped a long time ago since it became too many navigating problems?

I've been using Firefox for years without any issues. I recently added Facebook Container to my add-ons. Guess I can't tell if it's working, or not, but...

I have been having some real issues in FB for a few weeks, now, and am wondering if it is because of Facebook Container.

Responses are very laggy and jerky. When I place my cursor onto the Like button, the other options take some time to pop up. They will also take some time to show up once I click on them. If I accidentally cursor over the date and time line under a person's name, that black pop up box will stay popped up for a long, long time. That wouldn't be so bad, but it often covers text I'm trying to read. Often, when I try to click on the Like button, especially for a picture, it will lag, then the picture will pop open. In general, FB is just very laggy and jumpy.

Any ideas? Could it be FB Container causing these issues?

Hello! The audio output of Firefox is always set to the speakers of my laptop. I can't hear videos or music via my headphones or another audio device (Steinberg UR 22 mkII). When I take other browsers or spotify, the audio output is allways on the plugged in devices. But with Firefox I only hear it through laptop speakers.

In the latest version 81.0.2 I am experiencing strange issues.

1. On both of my computers I cannot get wunderground.com to load properly. It works fine in Chrome, but every time I try to log in with Firefox I just get a spinning circle and some weird code characters at the upper right by the location search box.

2. I have had several "tab crashes". These sites also work fine in Chrome, but crash in Firefox.

I have tried "refresh" and also completely removing and reinstalling Firefox on both computers. After uninstall I scanned and cleaned the registry with two different "cleaners" before reinstalling, but still having issues.

I had to restart my computer after upgrading ESET AntiVirus and I now have no saved passwords in FireFox.

I have located the logins.json file which is inside my current profile and can open it with FireFox. It contains over 100 records but the username/password fields are encrypted.

I understand that the logins.json file works with a file called key*.db to unencrypt the information. I can see key4.db and key3.db inside my FireFox profile folder but I'm not sure why it's not working.

Can anyone offer any advice on how I can get my passwords back?

Firefox upgraded recently to 81.0.2. After the upgrade I can no longer connect to my bank’s web site. Firefox displays this failure message:

Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to xx.xxxxxxx.com The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

The bank’s customer-no-service help desk politely advised that their system is working, this is a Firefox problem, check the Firefox browser settings, use another browser.

I am not a browser security settings expert and do not want to be . . . I have no clue as to how to fix this . . . so what do I do?

Can I revert to the previous version of Firefox? How? Thanks.

Valued community members: Not looking for a fix or work around solution here. My goal is to better understand why this occurs. Each time I (frequently) update to the latest version of Firefox, I Iose extensions (in this case new tab - cursor to search bar). I know that users can go in and correct this, but I would prefer that settings, extension, addons, etc, be preserved. My question is, is that really challenging of a code writing task? I know next to nothing about programing, but based on my experience using other apps, I would think preservation would be a piece of cake. Can a Code Joe comment in terms I might understand?
