When I try to open any PDF file, I have to Browse to find my pdf viewer (Flexipdf). I do that and also check your "Save this for future" option. Every time I try to open a pdf after that I still have to go through all the Browse steps. I also set up Flexipdf in your Settings and it just gets ignored.

What setting will stop the constant notice "Download the latest version of Firefox." I don't want 20 notices per day. It's like having a child in the backseat "are we there yet?" "are we there yet?" "are we there yet?" How many times do I have to click the "Dismiss" button before this stupid software understands that I do not want updates? I've noticed that this is a common complaint. Stop the bullying by making people choose automatic updates. Many times things get messed up on my computer with updates and it is not worth the aggravation. Candace M.

I've been using FVD Speed Dial Addon, plus its Everhelper Sync, to manage my Bookmarks: apparently, they're no longer supported by Firefox (last Update by Nimbus 2 years ago)! FVD was really convenient for Syncing & Saving my Bookmarks: what do you suggest I do, now? I don't want to lose all my Bookmarks!

I have been using FVD Speed dial for several years. A couple weeks ago, I upgraded my EverHelper/Nimbus web account to paid so that I could sync and keep all my bookmarks since I lost them when my laptop crashed two weeks ago.

Today, I get a message from Firefox that FVD Speedial has been permanently disabled. I need my Speed dials back, and I need refund from somebody if I can't use the add-on anymore. It would be nice if Firefox would notify users ahead of time before unceremoniously blocking something as critical as this. I need to be able to access my speed dials so I can at least import them to some other app/add-on if necessary. I'd also like to know how to contact Nimbus if I need a refund.

Just a short call would do a world of good. Get into my computer would do the trick & set me free. I need it badly, I am president of 2 non-profits & lay-Leader for a Methodist church. I have been with Fox for years & would hate to have to change. Maybe I could just delete Fox & renew?

Two Issues - checkboxes borked in settings, and i hate the new proton tabs and want to revert to the old tabs

Issue 1: When I open up the firefox settings, I cannot tell in the slightest what is and isn't checked off because nothing appears in the checkboxes. They're just empty squares regardless of whether something is checked off or not. I've attached a screenshot below.

Issue 2: I really, really hate the new proton tabs. I had them disabled by disabling proton, but I guess I forgot to disable auto-updates, because I just opened Firefox to find that they're back, much to my displeasure. It's difficult for me to distinguish tabs from each other at a glance now as they are all the same color with no borders *and* having 'autoplay disabled' and 'playing' and stuff like that in TINY all caps font below the tab label is NOT USEFUL. It is distracting to the eye, and I have to squint and lean closer to be able to read what the heck it's even saying. This is shitty for nearsighted people like me. Moreover, at a glance it is IMPOSSIBLE now to tell which tab sound is coming from. This is a huge step backwards in functionality and accessibility.

I wasn't using mozilla for aesthetics - I was using it because it functioned and was more stable / less of a memory hog in my experience than chrome, and I appreciated the ease and convenience of syncing across different computers as well as the built in password management. However, I question whether I can continue to use this browser if you're going to prioritize aesthetics over functionality and user preference.

Seriously - that the tabs DO NOT CONNECT to the page is itself distracting and weird, *but also* that the rest of the tabs blend together and have extra tiny unreadable text rather than the infinitely more distinguishable audio symbol that indicated which tabs had sound playing before is so terrible.

So.... tl;dr: HOW DO I GET OLD TABS BACK?

Hi Guys

Firefox does not remember logins!I know it is controlled by cookies and I have sought help here a few days ago.

No matter what I do and what I change I cannot get it save logins like to Brisbane Times .com.au which is set for my home page. I can go back and it will save the login but when I close a document or when the BT homepage renews it will not keep my login (Edge does). Every time I log into Twitter I have to log in again. The enhanced tracking is off for this site but no matter what I change I don't seem to be able to get it to remember my logins. I know this is cookie related so just don't seem to be able to get the combination. I have tried to follow all the FF help menues but to no avail. I would appreciate a step by step what to do if that is possible

Hellow,

Since updating the latest firefox version 91.01 it has considerably slowed down browsing speed to an impossible crawl. The task manager shows the update as permanently on, sucking 100% resources. There´s something not right when it does this, and is becoming a bad habit of constantly refreshing firefox to get sensible operation.

It started by installing a clear cache which helped as firefox also hangs when connecting to the internet as a result it goes off-line at random times. Barely ideal. 

Is it worth rolling back to an earlier version that is more stable ? Any other users got debugging suggestions ?

Problem: Firefox glitches a lot if the total number of all tabs exceeds 4129, and the sessionstore.jsonlz4 file in the profile has a large size.

Details: Some interface elements stop displaying normally after some time after opening 4130 tab, 4131 tab or more - popup menus, extension menus, Firefox menus, contextual menus, hovering popup windows, etc. They're either not displayed at all or partially displayed. The problem is purely visual - these elements are present and can be clicked on with the mouse, they just aren't displayed correctly. The more tabs open after 4129, the faster and harder the Firefox lags. When I quickly open more than 50 tabs after 4129, the browser usually stops displaying anything and completely freezes. The problem also appears some time after restarting the browser. Closing all tabs above the limit of 4129 completely solves the problem.

What have I done to solve the problem and what isn't working:

  • tried running the browser in "safe-mode" (without extensions and hardware acceleration);
  • tried running my firefox-profile in a new clean firefox client of the same version (87);
  • tried running my firefox-profile in a new clean firefox client of the latest version (94);
  • tried running my firefox-profile on another computer with significantly more RAM (32GB);
  • tried running my firefox-profile with sessionstore.jsonlz4 saved earlier (a week earlier)
  • tried running my sessionstore.jsonlz4 in a brand new profile;
  • combinations of all steps above.

Partial solution: The problem is definitely related to the sessionstore.jsonlz4 file from the profile. But since this file is critically important to me, I can't just create a new blank one. I tried creating a brand new one based on the old one, but smaller in size (I used [this](https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/sidebery/) extension). The old sessionstore.jsonlz4 (A) is 10.2MB, the new one (B) is 631KB. This difference in size is due to the fact that the new file doesn't contain data in the "image" attribute of tabs. In old (A) sessionstore.jsonlz4 67% of the space was taken up by the "image" attribute (it seems to be responsible for displaying the icons on the tabs), 16% by attribute "csp" (no idea what it is), all other attributes take less than 2% each. There're no "csp" attribute in my new (B) sessionstore.jsonlz4 and "image" attributes are "null". The first and second place are the "url" (23%) and "title" (19%) attributes respectively. I moved the new (B) sessionstore.jsonlz4 to the old profile and the problem was solved (the 4129 tabs limit disappeared). However, since the new (B) sessionstore.jsonlz4 has no "image" attribute data, all tabs are displayed without icons. I wrote a simple python-script that decompresses sessionstore files into json format, then copy "images" attributes of the old (A) sessionstore.json into the new one (C), and then compresses this into the new (C) sessionstore.jsonlz4. The size of such a compiled file is 6.82MB. When using such a sessionstore (С), the tab-icons are displayed, but the problem with the limit of 4129 tabs appears again. So it's obvious that the large size of the sessionstore.jsonlz4 file is the root of the problem.

My questions: 1) How do I fix it? Obviously, the "do not use more than 4129 tabs" option is not suitable for me. I know that most users will find this number of tabs excessive and suggest using bookmarks, but it doesn't work for me either. Spread tabs across multiple profiles or even browsers? I'm afraid that's what I'll end up having to do. 2) Why is this happening? I read people online who had sessionstore.jsonlz4 over 50MB and had no problems. 3) 67% of the space in my sessionstore-(A) is taken up by images, and many of them are repeated 100-300 times - a colossal waste. In total, I counted 792 unique images. Question - is there any way to modify sessionstore.jsonlz4 to significantly reduce its size, but still leave the data about these images? I tried to create 792 files with these images on my disk and replace the "image" attributes data with the path to these files. I tried the following options:

 "image": "D:/some_dir/123.ico"
 "image": "D:\\some_dir\\123.ico"
 "image": "file:///D:/some_dir/123.ico"
 "image": "file:///D:\\some_dir\\123.ico"

But it all doesn't work - the browser just replaces all these values with "null" after loading. In the original, such an attribute usually looks something like this:

 "image": "data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGAAAf8...(many bytes)...5ErkJggg=="
 or
 "image": "data:image/ico;base64,...

Any other ideas on how to replace those long data:image-strings?

I'm sorry for such a vague, long question, but I really need help from the experts.
