3 days ago Restore previous session stopped working. I lost a LOT of tabs. At the same time, firefox began opening to an empty tab labeled New Tab. When that New Tab is the only thing open in the browser, I can click the hamburger icon to get to the menu, but clicking Preferences does nothing. If I click the plus for a new tab, I get my actual new tab (which is Google) and the Preferences is accessible.

I have reset the checkbox for Restore previous session but it is too soon to know if that will hold.

I have seen suggestions to refresh Firefox as a possible fix. Is there a good way to set up to recover my extensions when I do that? Do I just need to reenable them afterward? Or will they be gone and need to be reloaded?

Hi. I'm having problems downloading files from my Google Drive account. I tried doing it on Google Chrome and it'll download. But I'm use to downloading them on Firefox since it's my main source of being on the internet. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox and it's still the same. I've even checked my settings and it's the same as before. What do I need to do to be able to download files from my Google Drive again/ Please help me ASAP. Thanks.

I had to do a factory reset of my computer a few months ago and reinstall Firefox. I have never found the bookmark folders that I used when I first got Firefox 88. Folders do not show up when I open the library, select bookmarks and manage bookmarks. Now I put all new ones in bookmark toolbar and they are a long list that is difficult to use. Is there a simple way to find and create folders so I can organize the bookmarks in toolbar and put them in folders?

I could not understand the information in the answers to similar questions. I need simple directions that are not too technical for someone without sophisticated computer skills. Thanks in advance.

In my question above, I have taken out 3 sentences but it still says I have too many characters. At first it said I had 11 more than the 255 limit; after deleting all that, it says I have 40 more. It won't make sense if I take out any more.

Hi, I have a question. Is it possible add a new feature to Firefox Sync that will allow user to synchronize only selected passwords? For example in Setting->Synchronize a new checkbox will appear on the list of elements to synchronize or it'll appear as a "subcheckbox" after user clicks "logins and passwords". After that user will be able to click a checkbox for every password separately.

I've just today attempted to make the switch from Chrome to Firefox, so I apologize for my unfamiliarity with the browser. I've found that one of my add-ons does not show up in the Toolbar, where I would much prefer it to be for ease of access.

  • I have already attempted two other fixes I have read about: one about deleting files in the Firefox folder and restarting Firefox, as well as another involving the "Customize Toolbar..." option from the dropdown hamburger menu. The former yielded no results other than resetting my other extensions' access to Private Browsing. With regards to the latter, the add-on in question is nowhere to be found - this is not the case with the others, which show up and can be moved freely in and out of the Toolbar.
  • In the case that I may be asked to check it - I have ensured that I did download the add-on, as it is present in the "Manage Your Extensions" menu in the add-ons manager.

Are there other solutions that I may attempt before writing off the issue as specific to this add-on?

Thank you in advance.

Have been running the current version of FF on Windows 8.1 with no problems for a long while.

Suddenly find that no download links work; Torrents, OneDrive, GoogleDrive - even the download link on FF's page.

Have found that I can right-click a torrent on public sites and copy the link into uTorrent and get a result that works. But won't work on private torrent sites - Invalid Torrent File!

Also lost the 'Display download progress' down-arrow from the task bar, managed to restore it after selecting Customize Toolbar, where it doesn't appear as an option but magically reappeared on the Taskbar.

Please help.

Hello,

I noticed this issue on some online stores recently. The don't have a sign out button anywhere. I tried to clear cache and cookies but nothing worked. I had to delete the FF app and reinstall it. User names and password are not saved. Even on websites I'm not even registered, after clearing the cookies and cache and reopen the browser, the items in my cart are still there.

I've noticed recently that most of my older bookmarks aren't showing up as bookmarked. I keep track of manga by date updated and when I went to check them, nothing that I had bookmarked showed as bookmarked. Yes, I know this website sometimes does that and you just need to refresh the page. However it's not just from that site. It's almost every older bookmark I have. The ones I've done in the last few days show, but again the majority of the others from various sites don't. Any suggestions on how to make them show again? Thank you!

Hello everyone, I accidentally noticed that when I paste (Ctrl+V) text into the desktop version of Evernote from vk.com, a hyperlink from vk.com appears in Evernote at the top. The link leads to the page from which I took this text. I inserted this text into various text editors by Ctrl+V, plane text without any hyperlinks is inserted. Checked the Windows clipboard, there is also only plane text. Searching the internet, I found a CLCL program that caches the clipboard, and this is what I saw (see the picture in the attachment). I just copied the text, not the page form. Has anyone come across an extension that removes all metadata when copying text from a site page?
