The subject line says it, really: though "Restore previous session" is still ticked in Options, a reboot presented me with just my homepage tabs. Is this, as I hope, an inadvertent bug or a design decision?

I'm using a desktop PC running Windows 7. Many thanks.

Hello,

I just upgraded to Firefox 87 and noticed that I wasn't able to go back to the previous webpage by clicking on the backspace button like what I have done in the past if I'm not using a mouse on my laptop and had to click on the back button in the toolbar with the trackpad. I'm not too sure of why that happened with the upgrade and was a little surprised about that. Hope I can be able to get around this in some way if one of you know anything about this. Thanks.

I use fire fox and my email is Gmail online. I can open a pdf from an email and it displays properly, but when I hit print it opens a new tab and it is just blank. There is no way to print. If I download the pdf I can print it from the download. This wasn't an issue when I was using chrome. I would prefer not to download each time I need to print something from an email.

Any ideas is there a plug in I should have?

Hi. I have a new Macbook Air 13.3 M1 laptop and have installed the latest version of Firefox (88). Everytime I restart Firefox I get the Welcome tab and questions like from a fresh install (i.e. want to make it default, import bookmarks, etc). With each Firefox restart, all my imported bookmarks disappear. Also although Firefox was set as default browser and it shows as default under preferences, opening a link outside of Firefox will start Safari not Firefox. Any suggestions on how I should deal with this? Thanks.

Using FF 88.0.1 in both Linux Mint and Windows 10 and without syncing add-ons, The "New Tab Override" looses my granted permission and opens a new tab on it's own Options/Preferences page, where it shows that permission is granted.

The simple solution I found that clearing the Startup cache restores functionality.

Already reported this on the add-on's Github site, which directed me back here.

in settings I have turned off all enhanced tracking I could find but apparently it doesn't keep the browser from blocking stuff. I have to go up to the address line and turn it off there. I'm getting sick to death and if I can't stop this enhanced tracking I'm done with firefox. Before you say I need it, the browser is already set to delete all cookies etc and never remember history when I close it.

So how can i stop firefox from enhanced tracking stuff even though nothing is checked under the Custom box in settings?

Firefox obviously couldn't care less about users when it comes to making things user-friendly. What are users supposed to do in order to sign into their account? I don't need to enable two-step authentication, so why are they forcing me? If they think it's necessary, what is "my authentication app"? I don't have any authentication app and why do I need it to sign into my account on my PC??? Where do I get that authentication app? Is it really so hard to include a link or at least a name of that app?
