Dear Mozilla/Firefox,

I've been using Firefox over the last couple of months/years but I just can't get the restore recently closed tab shortcut (CTRL+SHIFT+T) to work on my windows PC.

Here's a (Loom) recording of me showing that Firefox does correctly track the history of closed tabs and that I can click on them to restore but the shortcut (which is also mentioned as CTRL+SHIFT+T) just won't work: https://www.loom.com/share/7048894683654dccb4926aa4dd09e6a6

What I've tried so far: - Check if the history is actively collected - No I'm not using private browsing - I've read another support thread to check "about:config" and in there check that "browser.sessionstore.max_tabs_undo" is set (in my case it's the default 25) - Disabling all extensions (which I don't think are any suspicious or weird ones but disabled just to check - see attached image) - Resetting Firefox through the windows uninstaller - Fully uninstalling (using Revo Uninstaller with advanced check) and reinstalling Firefox

Please help me because I'm about to quit Firefox for such often used feature just not working...

P.S. it's working perfectly on my Macbook and I'm running the latest 96.0.1 64bit version

I have been having difficulties with Thunderbird account definitions for 6 months. I didn't recognize it as a definitions problem because I hadn't made any Thunderbird changes. I finally have all but 1 of my 5 email accounts working... but, my now-working Gmail account has a lot of extraneous folders (like multiple trash bins, etc; see attached).

Gmail shows 2 lists of incoming email: "Inbox" and "All mail". The "Inbox" folder is incomplete, most recent email shown is from last August; the "All Mail" folder appears to contain a complete list of emails for the Gmail account.

Can I get rid of all the extraneous folders? How?

Somewhen before or with 91.2.1, the default action when opening an existing email became "Edit draft message." (W10 19043, synching to GMail) That setting is nonintuitive and just wrong. A default should NEVER be an action that commits to an irreversable behavior path. Please fix.

This extremely bad design "feature" has apparently been around quite a while and generates exactly the problems returned by a search here on "delete attachments Thunderbird." I first noticed the behavior just about the time GMail introduced two-factor authentication. Maybe no connection there, but ...

Firefox is constantly removing safe extensions, re-approving them, then removing them again a couple days later. This is very frustrating, and is enough to make me permanently switch to Google Chrome, since they don't do this, and since I have to use that browser when Firefox messes with these extensions. I have been a stalwart Firefox user for years, but Firefox is pushing people like me away with this ridiculous behavior.

The best example is LastPass. Chrome seems to think it's perfectly safe, as it is not removing it. I use it and need it to be available for sites I need passwords for.

Unfortunately, however, Firefox regularly removes this essential extension and others, then, as I say, allows it again a day or two later, then removes it again.

Please, Firefox, figure this out! Otherwise, you're going to lose a lot of users and get a very bad reputation.

Hi,

Windoze 10, TB 91.4.1; Anti-virus excluded from scanning my profiles

Testing with a brand new install and brand new profile, no add-ons installed. When sending a message, the "Sending Message..." dialog displays, the message is sent by the server, the address is added to the Collected Addresses book, but the message copy is not added to the sent folder. Same problem recurs with either office365 or gmail accounts (both set to POP with Oauth2), and regardless of whether message copy is saved in Sent folder for the account or Sent folder in Local Folders. Pressing cancel, which reactivates the compose window and then immediately pressing send again works as expected: message sends (a second time), address collected (if it was deleted from the address book), and copy is saved correctly to whatever sent folder is selected. Disabling "Place a copy in..." entirely removes the problem.

Any ideas on how to resolve this, as I do want sent copies stored?

Thanks

Yesterday when I installed the 96.0 update it has forced my background color into a dark grey and ignores the background color setting. I would like to know if there is a setting, add on or update that can return this to normal. The theme I am using has not been updated in 2 years so I am fairly sure the update has caused this.

Firefox will now only up with a window about one-third the size of my monitor. I cannot find any way to change it back to filling the entire screen upon opening. I don't mean the full screen setting, just filling it top to bottom and side to side. If I hover over screen size icon, I get numerous options, but none allowing me to select wide screen.

this is always a pain in the neck. Bought new phone, Android 11, I need to read a file, named file.htm, in memory with firefox (or other browsers). This should be my home. I authorize FF to read memory (unfortunately there is only the checkbox for multimedia files, I do not know if this is an issue), and in the address I type

file:///storage/emulated/0/file.htm

No way, no message, just white page. Also with previous phones the first time I did this was a problem, but this time seems really hard. I tried also with 4 and 5 slashes but nothing changes.

Tried also to launch the file from the file manager but it does not propose me FF even if it is the default browser, just some crap like pictures and similar app.

NOTE someone said the FF has removed the possibility for security, but at least on my pc I can do it without a glitch

Thanks in advance to whomever will reply

I am new to Mozilla VPN. Followed the instructions and made sure mozillavpn was allowed to communicate through Microsoft Firewall on both public and private networks. Double-checked in settings Windows 10 to make sure it had permission.

I am currently on a private (home) network. Mozilla VPN starts with message "masking connection and location". It then displays message "attempting to confirm connection". It pauses there for a couple of minutes before failing. In quick succession, I get a message about "disconnecting" then "unmasking".

Any suggestions?

I'm on the latest version of Firefox, and it's unable to play videos on Amazon.com & Netflix.com. Neither did the one before 96.0. I first saw this on Netflix.com and when the tech started asking questions about my operating system, I knew they had pulled a fast one. Now Amazon.com has done the same thing with Firefox. This browser should be hiding the underlying operating system, because it's not necessary. I can use both websites with Chrome and have no issue. The same version of Firefox is on my laptop, but it has no problems because that thing is on Windows 10.

I won't bother with all the nonsense written about troubleshooting, because this is strictly the functionality of those websites peeking under the browser to check the O.S. Firefox needs to fix this hole immediately! You're messing with my money now. Monopolies shouldn't be able to control our hardware like this; they're not paying for any of it.

Oh, my TV is having a problem with the apps, so I was forced to watch videos with my computer instead. My laptop screen is too small and can't have my booming speakers connected to it. My desktop monitor is 34".

Firefox now requires a refresh to use every time it's opened. If I don't it keeps displaying that every page I attempt to go to has an expired https. It requests that I contact the owner to notify them of the problem and to try again. It does not connect to any webpage without a refresh. I've attempted troubleshooting mode and without a refresh, it still does not work. The refresh only lasts for about 10-15 minutes before another is required. All extensions are removed and even just attempting to go to google.com results in the same problem.
