So here's how I fucked up. I did a clean install of Windows and forgot to backup the Firefox profile folder since frankly I didn't know it existed. The next fuck up was I forgot my Firefox password before I knew about the recovery key. I reset the password and then found out resetting it deletes the bookmarks for security reasons.

Now I'm wondering, is there any way the staff could find my old bookmarks? I know I did not only one but two fuck ups in a row but I'm still holding onto hope.

Thank you for response.

So, on Windows 10 I noticed that when I click the History tab I see Show All History and when I click that the only option I get is Today..very odd.

On my Windows 7 Home Premium when I do the same steps I have access to "Today", "Yesterday", "Last 7 days" and various recent months.

This is what I'm accustomed to and was hoping to get input on why I only get Today option on my Windows 10 computer.

Looking forward to your reply...

I would like to create a FireFox shortcut in the Windows 10 Startup folder so FireFox loads automatically at boot time, in a minimized Window (or better yet, the system tray). There does not appear to be any way to make this happen. I have searched pretty extensively. If there is a way, I'd like to hear about it. If there isn't, I would like to suggest it as a feature for future development.

I Am on desktop:

i5 9600KF (high performance mode) 16GB 3200mhz ram NVME... Windows 10 Pro x64 Firefox last stable

When I open Firefox tabs aren't loaded all at the same time, but they are suspended. So after that: when I switch between 6 tabs quickly - they start to open at the same time. And CPU usage skyrockets to 100% LOL! Given I Am on high end PC - this is joke! I was using chrome and had hundreds of tabs and Chrome doesn't even suspend them by default. They open all at the same time I think!

So there is something wrong! I tried troubleshooting mode and it was the same problem!

Thanks for help!

I want to completely disable the 'restore previous session' option.

I want to start a new session with my preset home pages 100% of the time.

Having Firefox display a page 'unable to restore previous session' with the options of 'display previous' pages and 'start new session' is inconvenient at best. I do not want to see that page, I just want Firefox to automatically start a new session every time I open it.

In the Tools menu settings tab, the 'Restore previous session' checkbox is not checked.

Only on Firefox (not Chrome, for example) animated gifs and videos on Twitter will not display -- they instead show a black screen. When paused or not yet played, there is a visible image, but as soon as I press play, it goes to black. The audio on a video will play just fine, but the screen/image is still black.

I have checked my graphics drivers for updates and they are all up-to-date. Also the gifs/videos play just fine if I use Chrome.

Firefox is up to date. I'm on v 93.0 (64-bit).

When I click in the URL search bar, a list of the most common sites appears, with one glaring omission, eBay!

All my other frequent website appear, like bbc.co.uk and youtube.com and scan.co.uk etc etc, but ebay.co.uk is always missing despite my visiting the site at least 3 times a day.

Any ideas as to why please?

We have around 1000 Firefox installations on our government organization, all installed via the Firefox MSI installer. Unfortunately, we came late to realize that the Firefox ESR would be a much more suitable product, compared to the normal Firefox branch.

Now, some years ago we would simply mass uninstall the normal Firefox and mass install the (latest) ESR version and all would be well. Problem is that we have to keep existing profiles (including passwords/bookmarks etc), something that is not supported in the latest Firefox builds.

Can anyone offer some advice/"hacks" to accomplish this? Note that whatever we'll do, we'll have to do it automatically, we lack the man-power to do this manually on a system by system basis...

Thanks in advance for any information provided.

I am constantly getting a notice at the top of the screen that says "Mozilla is not responding". It all stalls and then eventually, Mozilla apparently starts to respond and it goes to the page I choose. I have kept up with all the updates and am not a huge online person in the first place. Why does this happen? It is so often, I am tempted to change browsers.

Two questions re: the forced update from 78.15 to 91.

1: Will all bookmarks, and all other settings be retained? Is there a form of recommended backup in case of problems (I currently use MozBackup, still)

2: Will the "Bookmark Tab Here" add-on work with 91? I need a user friendly bookmarking system, which was the reason I stayed with ESR in the first place.
