At some moment I´ve got a pretty big sessionstore file (6,6 Mb) which does not load properly. I´ve tried a few of FF versions and settings. My current version 103.0.1 64 bit loads it for few minutes and crashes when tabs appear. Some older versions loads it but after that have various problems with program interface: new tabs sometimes won´t open, no float tips when I´m hove cursor over tab header and so on. Also in such cases browser often crashes and not update old sessionstore file. I have 16 Gb of RAM, FF takes up to 5,5 Gb before tabs appear for moment and FF crashes. I have such big sessionstore file earlier (for example, 24.07.22 it has size of 6,5 Mb), but all worked fine. Maybe there are any internal setting that I have to try?

Everytime I try to do a search in Firefox I get a Manuals Library page come up. Why is it doing this? I did a search not long ago for a user's manual for a product, and I guess I accidentally downloaded this Manuals Library. Now I have no idea how to get rid of it. There is no shortcut on my desktop for it, I cannot find it anywhere in my downloaded programs in Uninstall or Change a Program in my Control Box. I DO NOT want this program! Help please!! I tried to do a screen shot of the page, but your browse won't pick it up when I browse for the screen shot I saved on my desktop. Below is the web address copied from the address bar.

moz-extension://e92e4191-795a-4571-8a6b-4582396dbc25/pages/consent/consent.html?url=https%3A%2F%2Fsearch.yahoo.com%2Fyhs%2Fsearch%3Fhspart%3Dtrp%26hsimp%3Dyhs-001%26grd%3D1%26type%3DY143_F163_201897_102620%26p%3DJimmy%2BDean%2Bofficial%2Bwebsite

I have been using Firefox for years with no problem on a 64 bit Windows 7 machine, i7 processor, 32 gigs of ram. Firefox is version 103 64 bit. I have Kaspersky Internet Security and Malwarebytes installed and have been using them with Firefox for years.

A few days ago Firefox just stopped loading any pages. If I go to a secure site (https) I get "secure connection failed". If I go to a non-secure site (http) I get "The connection was reset". Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome work on this machine with no problem. Oddly enough Mozilla Thunderbird also stopped working today. Only Mozilla products seem to be having problems.

Firefox works fine on other Windows 7 computers in my household.

I tried clearing the cache. I tried disabling extensions. I tried running it in Troubleshoot mode. I tried the "Refresh Firefox" option. I tried completely uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox.

None of these worked. Even a clean virgin install will not load any pages. It seems to be something specific to this machine that's preventing Firefox from working. What can I do to get Firefox working again?

Hello Lovely Firefox Volunteers,

I hope this email finds you well. I am a long-time user and fan of Firefox, and other open source projects. Firefox is a fantastic internet browser!

Having said that, I was shocked and dismayed at what I encountered today. I was doing some tests for screen-reader usability on a website, and I came across the following:

Image 1 (attached): Advertisement of Screen-Reader Add-Ons for Firefox

Image 2 (attached): No Screen-Reader Add-Ons for Firefox are Available

The Firefox team is advertising screen-reader add-ons for Firefox, which don't seem to exist. I don't think the recommendation here should be: take down the advertisement for the Firefox native screen-reader add-ons/link to them, these seem to be really important for accessibility, and the Firefox team seems to acknowledge this. :)

There is some other missing piece - maybe there are Screen-reader add-ons for Firefox, and they aren't being linked to? Maybe the wrong tag is being used? (The auto tag that is used in the link is "screen reader"). Maybe there aren't any, and this is an area that needs some additional attention?

Anyway, I just thought I should bring this to your attention as making our internet accessible to people living with blindness and loss of sight is extremely important.

Sincerely, Katie

I have followed the fixes. It will work after I "Refresh Firefox" but goes back to not working again. Should I reinstall Firefox? How do I add this site to the exceptions? Thank you


Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at www.cdc.gov.

If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

   Try again later.
   Check your network connection.
   If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

Hello - there are add-ons for Amazon, Google, Facebook, EBay and Twitter - none of which I added - showing up on the Firefox browser as running during browser start. I can see them when I use CC Cleaner. They are browser plugins set to run upon start up. I can disable them but need to do it every time, as there is no way to delete them that I can see. I would like to find out why these plugins are there and how I can delete them.


Thanks

I added a few sites I frequently visit, such as banks, credit card company Google, to the exceptions list in Cookies And Site Data. When my version of Firefox was recently updated to 102.0.1, a few of those sites began asking for additional authentication because they didn't recognize my computer. So I added the recommended add-on, Cookie Quick Manager. and listed those sites as protected. This worked for a few days but Google and my credit card company again don't recognize my computer. I am not using a VPN.

Thank you.

I like to set my home page to my search engine, and I want to type on the page in the nice long search field there, not on the d---d address bar! The following preferences have all been offered as fixes to eliminate searching in the address bar, but none of them are currently working for me in FF 102.0.1:

Do about:config; search for the browser.urlbar.suggest.searches preference setting it to false.

Also browser.fixup.alternate.enabled needs to be set to false Also browser.urlbar.oneOffSearches = false

Also to disable searching when typing an address (e.g. the URI fails to resolve and it tries to use a search engine) turn keyword.enabled to false.

What does work?

Need help restoring the open tabs that are saved in Computer1, to Computer2, but Computer1 does not work

Hi - I need some help restoring the 100+ open tabs that are in Computer1, and open them AS-IS in Computer2.

To help you understand my story......Computer1 is main machine, and I had over 100 tabs opened in there. I would like to transfer ALL of the open tabs to Computer2, before re-partitioning the C Drive in Computer1.

The problem is, my Computer1's Windows 10 is giving me problems at the moment, so I can not get into the computer by logging in. No recovery or diagnosis method will do the trick, so I will have to reinstall a fresh copy of Windows into Computer1. Besides, the computer was troubling me for having only ~50 MB available space in the C Drive (I have multiple partitions in my hard drive).

For now, I have removed the hard drive from Computer1, attached it in Computer2, and have access to the data in the various Computer1's drives.

I read many articles here in the Support Mozilla help site to restore the 100+ open tabs from Computer1, into Computer 2, but it is not working for me. I even tried copying the entire "sessionstore-backups" folder from Computer1's location, and replacing the same folder in Computer2's location.

Maybe I have to do more than just copying the "sessionstore-backups" folder, like do something additional through FireFox options??

Any help would be appreciated.

And here is the location of the "sessionstore-backups" folder in both computers:


Computer1 K:\Users\Team Umizoomi\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\jrvowkxo.default\sessionstore-backups

Computer2 C:\Users\einstein jr\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\x9z76c15.default-release-1\sessionstore-backups

Whenever I press space to scroll one page down the cursor dissapears. The same thing happens when I press `. As soon as I move the mouse it reappears but this is unwanted and annoying behavior which didn't happen in the past. I'm not sure when it started happening but it hasn't been long since that. I tried restarting with all the plugins turned off but that didn't help. I'm using the latest version of FF on Win 7 x64.`

Various website that contain dynamic content are not being rendered by Firefox to display that content. This is happening with websites that provide transportation information and ticketing, including Amtrak and Peter Pan Bus Lines . It is also happening with a genealogical website, FamilyTreeDNA, on pages that should be displaying family tree information. Illustrations of two pages are attached. I have been able to access the information by using Opera on this same computer and operating system, and by using the same version of Firefox installed on a different computer with different operating system. I am not sufficiently proficient with website development to know or understand what type of dynamic content is being generated by these websites, or how Firefox interprets the content. My suspicion is that some Firefox setting has been enabled or disabled, but I do not know which one it would be.

This isn't a question about the "Multi-Account Containers" addons, I am pretty sure that there was a section called "Container tabs" in the privacy and security settings, and I could use containers without installing an addon some days ago.

I can still access by directly viewing this address

about:preferences#containers

But I can't find it in the settings, and this feature does no longer work.

So I went to read recent release notes from Firefox 100 to 101.0.1, but I didn't find any notes to say this feature has been disabled. Could this be an unexpected result of an update?
