Hello,

When FF on my Windows 10 machine crashed FF asked if I wanted to refresh FF. I said yes, and FF reopened as usual with all my tabs. After I closed and reopened FF the next time, it reopened without any of my tabs. I then discovered that FF had unchecked the “Startup Open previous windows and tabs” box, which I had previously religiously monitored to be sure it was checked. So I lost all my previous tabs.

In my sessionstore-backups folder I found the file upgrade.jsonlz4-20 as last in a list of three more recent file names. I then dropped the file upgrade.jsonlz4-20 in the scrounger tool on this site: https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html. It expanded in the big window, and when I clicked on Save uncompressed JSON as text, I see all the URLs run together in a text file.

How can I use this information to recover my tabs, please? If so, how? Or is there a better way to use the Scrounger – or another – tool?

Otherwise if I delete the three more recent file names in the list above the upgrade.jsonlz4-20 file, and restart FF will I recover the missing tabs? If so would I the check or uncheck the Startup Open previous windows and tabs box?

Lastly, can I restore my missing tabs using Windows’ “System restore” tool from 3 days before the crash?

Many thanks for any help!

Hello all, I just updated my Firefox to 100.0.2. After the restart nothing will load. I can't open the settings (it doesn't even open a new tab as it normally does when opening the settings). Typing about:config does nothing as well. I've tried bookmarks, typing an address directly into the address bar - literally nothing happens. It doesn't try to open the page, it doesn't give me the spinning circle indication that it is trying, absolutely nothing. I am running Win 10 release 21h2 fully patched. Windows firewall is turned off, tried disabling the AV. Other browsers including Chrome, Tor and Edge all work.

I am at a loss...

Incorrect URL Suggestion

Hello all!

Thanks for your time. When I log in to a certain procurement website associated with my employer, I use the following URL:

https://solutions.sciquest.com/apps/Router/Login?OrgName=MIT.

Once I have done so, subsequent typing in the URL field autocompletes to the shorter host:

https://solutions.sciquest.com/.

The only problem is that when I go to this shorter host, I am "Forbidden \n You don't have permission to access this resource." The website does not seem to allow anyone to go here.


I am on a holy quest to purge this unwanted autocomplete suggestion, but nothing seems to work. It is not appearing because of a bookmark or search history- I can delete places.sqlite to start fresh but the problem resurrects as soon as I first successfully visit the desired URL: https://solutions.sciquest.com/apps/Router/Login?OrgName=MIT.

When I use SQLite to look at places.sqlite, I don't find the shortened URL anywhere in "moz_places" but I do find it in "moz_origins". It appears there with a much greater "frecency" than the lengthier URL for some reason. ID #10 has "solutions.sciquest.com/apps/Router/Login?OrgName=MIT" with frecency 2100, and ID #11 has "solutions.sciquest.com" with frecency 16100.

If I try to delete #11, I'm not able to for reasons likely related to my lack of understanding/proficiency with SQL databases. The DB Browser I am using says "Error deleting record, foreign key constraint failed". But my suspicion would be that even if I did delete it, it would be re-generated whenever I login successfully. What I am able to do is edit the "frecency" field. When I change it to zero, and write the database, the option goes away. I fear that frecency will simply be reset next time I close and reopen however.

Thanks in advance! Dave

Every time I log in or refresh outlook, I get an email ad for outlook upgrade. It is from microsoft, and can be opened as an email, but it is an ad and can't be blocked. These emails remain blocked with Brave, and I am running an ad blocker. Will mozilla update to remove these ads, or is there an ad blocker that works better with Mozilla. When I inspect it, the first line shows:-

Is there a way in Firefox to have quicker access to saved logins than through the menu structure? The menus are four layers deep, which is frustrating as it is difficult to remember the route when only using the feature occasionally. Some websites don't respect the Firefox Password Manager, so it sometimes becomes necessary to manually find the credentials.

Is there any way to create a bookmark to the saved login section?

Is there perhaps an add-on?

Thanks for any answers.

When trying to access certain web pages that I've been able to access perfectly fine a day ago, these webpages display just and only a white screen, no error, just a white screen. I really like firefox and I would like to continue using it, but this has happening quite often recently. The website is an online course so I'm trying a lot to fix the issue from firewall configuration (even shutting it off completely) to changing settings in about:config as recommended by other firefox support pages, and using command prompt to reset dns. I've reset firefox in several different ways and uninstalled it completely. I dont know what going on.

I am getting the following errors due to vulnerabilities detected by Acronis Ceber protect:

VERACODE:32409 VERACODE:33582 VERACODE:33588 VERACODE:33883

Along with 52 more veracodes listed as critical

I have installed & uninstalled firefox and it no longer will run on my MAC.

Here is the warning I get when I look up more details from Acronis:

ERROR: 'VERACODE:32409' is a malformed CVE-ID. 'VERACODE:32409' is a malformed CVE-ID. It does not conform to the expected CVE-ID syntax, and it could not be converted into a valid ID.

CVE entries are of the form CVE-YYYY-NNNN where:

YYYY is a year (exactly 4 digits), and NNNN is a number (with at least 4 digits, or more than 4 when needed.) Examples of CVE-IDs that conform to the syntax: CVE-1999-0003, CVE-2014-9999, CVE-2014-12345, CVE-2014-7654321

Note: Beginning in 2014, more than 4 digits are allowed in the last portion of CVE IDs. For more information, see the CVE-ID Syntax Change page.

Old-style candidate names (CAN-YYYY-XXXX) are also accepted, but this style was discontinued in 2005, and further use is strongly discouraged.
