I didn't updatefirefox after 48 in my father's (old) pc beause it was annoying to not have previous some functional settings. I lost count and even forgot which were them. One example is about tab functions.

(Software world has evolved in a bad way. I noticed this after 2010. Change rates or choices aren't very smart. why? This is a general something. And a widespread problem. not only in firefox or restricted to borwsers whatsoever.)

So, I accidentally clicked a link that takes me to a site I have never logged into. Firefox prompts me with 3 userids. One is more or less a throwaway, but two are for sites I want to be secure.

I have disabled the form history in options. I have selected each item and tried either delete or shift-delete. None of these options work.

The site continues to present me with 3 userid options.

I hope this is not a major security threat since I am the only user on this computer and the site is one I have never visited, but it worries me nonetheless that I cannot remove the Firefox suggestions.

All Pinned And Open Tabs Lost ☹

I got an error on one of my open or pinned tabs (do not recall which it was). I do not recall what the error was and did not screenshot it because I was sure that closing Firefox and restarting it would fix the issue. I did just that, closed Firefox and reopened it to find that ALL of my pinned and open tabs were GONE. This also happens if another instance of Firefox is opened and I close my main one first by accident and then close the other Firefox instance - ALL TABS LOST.

This is what I have done: • I started to restore the pinned tabs as I could remember what they were but I was not able to remember the open tabs that were not pinned • I searched for lost tabs on the web and on the Mozilla support site but was not able to find any useful help - most of it seems outdated or no long compatible with my version of Firefox. • I looked for the sessionrestore files on my local PC but could not find them - this must have changed in some version of Firefox between version 42 and version 82 that I have. • I looked in the AddOn store to find something that would help restore and prevent this issue - but found nothing. A very old post, from 2012, indicated one that did this but it is no longer available. • All of the Options in Firefox to restore previous session, reopen previous tabs and all that were blank.

This is VERY frustrating in that it results in lots of down time to recreate what was open and is equivalent to working on a document for days or weeks only to find out that the Microsoft file got corrupt or did not save properly.

I am using Firefox version 82.0.2 (64-bit).

Two questions: 1/ Is there any way I can get the pinned and open tabs back from the previous session? 2/ What can I do to avoid this issue EVER happening again.

Thanks!!!!

I am now seeing the new Firefox print screen when I try to print something from a webpage, but there is something critical missing from that screen. What happened to the "Simplify Page" option?? That, to me, was an incredibly valuable option within Firefox, given that I have to do a lot of printing from websites. Is that option now hidden somewhere in the new print screen, or has it been removed? For me, given what I do, that option is something of a deal-breaker. If Firefox has removed it, I may have to begin using a different browser.

When I add a bookmark Firefox puts it in either "Other Bookmarks" or "Bookmarks Menu". Having to hunt in two places for new bookmarks is infuriating. How do I get the programmers to add an option in about:config to remove or disable "Other Bookmarks" so that new bookmarks are just added to "Bookmarks Menu" like they should in a normal world?

Is there a way to change the color of the tab bar background. I typically have several windows open, different windows for different accounts, and I'd like to color code the tab bars to make them more easily recognizable. Also, a black background makes it hard to discern a window when it's partially covered against a dark screen image.

FireFox broke my youtube (utube) account when you updated the picture in picture (p.i.p.) from the BLUE p.i.p. button that came out from the right side of the utube vids.

  • NOW with the new upgraded "white" p.i.p. button, I login to utube and the loaded utube page don't log me into my account, I have to keep reloading the page 10 times or more just to get my subscription list to load on the left side, but my notification bell in the top right hand corner won't load the new videos and it reads "SIGN IN" even though I'm signed in, and the channels I subscribe to NOW HAS a subscribe button even though I'm subscribed already!!! CRAZY!!!
  • Why does it not log me into all the features on the page?

And why won't it detect I'm ALREADY logged in and load all my normal features?

      • IS FIREFOX AWARE OF THIS PROBLEM AND GOING TO FIX IT or do I need to use another browser forever to view utube?

Any Ideas??? Thanks my friends!!! Much Love!

On four occasions during the past three months, Amazon has refused my log in to their site, stating that I've not used the correct password. When this occurs, I look at my 'password box' and can see that the number of characters (the black dots) are of a far greater number than the number of characters in my current password by more than 200. When I go to 'Security' in Firefox to view my password, it has indeed changed to a random selection of 200 plus characters. When I erase these characters and retype my original password, Amazon will accept the change and I can log in.

My question: Although I don't expect anyone to know why Amazon is doing this, I'm baffled as to how Firefox can be manipulated by Amazon so as to change my password.

Has anyone experienced this and is there any advice? I'm hopeful that an actual Amazon tech will have a response to this as well as the community.

Thank you,

At work, my work machine keeps getting this message: "Firefox can't update to the latest version. Download a fresh copy of Firefox and we'll help you to install it."

There are several threads found in various blogs of how to get past it. I've tried several to no avail. At this point, I'm thinking about if there needs to be a firewall exception added by our network administrator to allow updates to automatically download firefox updates. A previous thread asked this question, but I'm not clear if the answer is what I think it is. The answer suggested says to here's the thread:

"The update URL is generated via the app.update.url pref that you can inspect on the about:config page." The app.update.url says this: https://www.mozilla.org/%LOCALE%/firefox/. Is that what we need to put in? If so, why didn't the answer just say that?

The next part of the answer suggests downloading and installing a Live HTTP Headers extension, then going to Help about firefox. I did this, but nothing populated the extension.

This may seem like two problems posted here, I can repost the error as a separate issue if desired and we can address what exceptions here.

Thank you very much for any help you can give.
