I lost a session with many tabs.

Unfortunately "Restore previous session" was not available. I found a upgrade.jsonlz4 file with a date and time which would have the tabs on it. The size is larger than other ones so I figured this was the best option. I coppied this and pasted it into profiles. Renamed it sessionstore.jsonlz4... Renamed the sessionstore that was in there already to sessionstoreOLD Restarted firefox and when I click on restore previous session button I just get 2 blank tabs.

I then tried the other files which are significantly smaller but still no dice.

I tried the jefferson scrounger and it just gets stuck on "processing"

Any help would be much appreciated.

Please see screenshot of the files I had available to me and saved to a usb.

I have successfully synced FF on my laptop with FF on my Galaxy 9+ Android phone, but when I want to access a desktop bookmark on my phone, it takes 4 steps - 1. Click on the 3 dots at the bottom - 2. Click on the Bookmarks star icon- 3. click on Desktop bookmarks. - 4. click on the bookmarks toolbar icon. Is there a way to just click on the 3 dots and make it go straight to step 4, by-passing steps 2 and/ or 3? A true sync should add all the bookmarks in the bookmarks bar on the laptop more directly to the main page or at least the bookmarks icon shouldn't it?, and this seems clunky.

Thanks, Richard

Ever since the Firefox for Android 79 was released I cannot upload an image to any website. For example the form where I am typing this question has a field Add images (optional):. When I click the Browse button below it, the system select dialog appears, I select an image and when I click Done, Firefox returns to the page and re-renders it as if the app is restarted, and the chosen image does not appear in the field. I noticed that if I spend very little time in the select file dialog, e.g. choose one of the recent images, the file selection is successful – it appears in the form field and can be uploaded. I don’t know if is connected to this issue but when I switch quickly (like less than 5 seconds) to a messaging app to retrieve anaccess code for example, the page is re-rendered again. Tried installing and uninstalling to no avail. Reinstalled the last version before the Firefix Daylight upgrade, 69.11.0, and there I had no problem. I am using Samsung Galaxy A10 with Androud 10.

Hi guys, I'm using Firefox for the first time today on my smartphone. So far I have used Vivaldi.

Now I miss a possibility in Firefox to get directly to the start page with one click, and thus to get to the favourites (most used pages, collections, ...).

In Vivaldi there is a kind of home button in the middle. Is that also possible with Firefox? Or how do you do it?

Thank you!

Good Evening,

I just downloaded Firefox onto my new computer. I went to sign-in and it keeps telling me that I have an incorrect password. It is the correct password because I used it to login here. I uninstalled it and reinstalled it on the new computer with no joy. What should I do? Also, I can login and out just fine with my old computer.

Thanks,

Leish

I have managed to thoroughly foul up Thunderbird to the point that I can neither receive nor send emails. I also use Gmail, but store all the emails I want to keep in Thunderbird because it’s so much easier to create and manage folders. I have 1.61 gigs of emails dating back to 1996; many should have been deleted years ago, but quite a few are of sentimental value and a scant few have financial information I may need someday. The problem started a couple of days ago when I read a description of IMAP and thought I should make sure that Gmail and Thunderbird are always in sync (I know, I know, but it was late at night and I wasn’t hitting on all 8/6/4 cylinders). In that less-than-stellar state, I started following the instructions for setting up for IMAP as well as POP3, but apparently managed to make enough mistakes that when I tried to Get Messages it asked for a password, and rejected what I entered. I was sure that it was correct, but when I checked for saved passwords (via the Options menu) the only one it showed was for smtp.gmail.com, which was last changed more than a year ago. I cannot get it to accept any password that I can remember.

Clicked Get Messages. Thunderbird responded with Window titled Error with account GmailforVan. It contained the following message:

Sending of password for user vanw39 did not succeed. Mail server pop.gmail.com responded: Username and password not accepted.

followed by

Login to server pop.gmail.com with username vanw39 failed.

At one point I thought I had remembered the correct password, but when I entered it the following message appeared at the bottom of the screen:

GmailforVan: Connected to pop.gmail.com

After a few moments, a window titled Activity Manager window popped up in the upper left corner with this message:

Connection to server pop.gmail timed out.

Can anyone help me get Thunderbird working again? Yes, I can send and receive email using Gmail, but I really want to get back all my saved messages.

If I make a copy of the folder that contains all my old messages, then deleted Thunderbird, reinstalled it, deleted my old account, then created a new account with the same email address, could I get access to those old messages?

It may be all I need to do is find my password but, if necessary, I can delete my account and start over (after backing up my mail folder). I really really hope someone can (and will) help.

Accessing :Politico.com there is a Politico Wuerker cartoon 'list'. The first item is always available. To migrate to any following item on the list I get a "you may skip ad in" with no further text. In the past, refresh would allow the next cartoon to be shown. Now, refresh returns to the first cartoon.

Current operation:

  1. Select the URL above
  2. Select any of the numbered bubbles on the bottom or the right 'arrow'
  3. "you may skip ad in" is displayed.
  4. Select refresh, and we start over.

In the past, refresh would migrate to the next jpg image.

On microsoft edge, in the past, (1) there was a right block arrow, (2) clicking on the arrow gets you to the "you may skip ad in" message, and displayed with this is a check box to allow skipping the ad.

As just a curiosity, why did Firefox elect to change the right block arrow to a rectangular black image?

thanks
