It's on an older machine but updating my hardware is not an option right now. I don't have this problem on any of my newer machines. I've been using firefox exclusiverly on multiple machines for more than 15 years and I have never had this or any issues until now.

Hi guys, I have a problem with firefox. The option to undo close tab (whether its the shortcut, or the right click on tabs menu) doesn't work correctly for me, it always open a randomly closed page from a while ago and not the recently closed one.

I thought it was a problem with how I close the tabs (ie. if i click on the x or ctrl+w, or the mouse wheel) but it doesn't make a difference, the undo closed tab still doesn't work right.

I tried looking for a solution on here and online but found nothing concrete. So, I appreciate any help.

Cannot Log into Yahoo mail on Firefox

I got an automatic update from Opera that I did not ask for, so all of my logins were lost. After recovering them and signing in, when I closed Opera, all of my freaking logins were gone again. There is no way to stop this from happening, because Opera likes to make it difficult to stop auto-updates and to stop passwords/usernames from being wiped out when closing Opera. OK, fine. I'll go back to Firefox, then.

So when trying to login to my Yahoo mail account on Firefox there is a challenge page that sends a verification code to my Android phone. I clicked yes, but there is no place to put the verification from the challenge page. When I go back to the Yahoo mail login page, it goes back to the challenge page again, sending a verification to my Android again. This does not happen in Opera, but there is still the issue of being kicked out of all of my social media, email accounts every freaking time.

I have WORK to do and am not interested in being a coder. I am a writer. So how can I stop this from happening? I would like to go on with my freaking life!

Below is a screen-cap of the challenge screen. Do you see any way to get past it? NO! the only thing that is possible is to get to the goddamn Help screen. I don't want any Help. I want to log into my Yahoo mail. Again, this is not happening in Opera, but Opera keeps kicking me out of my logins.

I see 2 different prices for Private Networks: $2.99 for Firefox Private Network, $4.99 for Mozilla VPN. What's different between these 2 services, besides the price? Also, the Mozilla VPN listed Windows 10, but not earlier versions (I'm running Windows 7 Pro on my Dell Latitude Laptop with the Firefox Browser). At this time, I'm only interested in the laptop, not my phone, for the VPN and/or FPN.

I installed the uBlock Origin add on to stop ads while watching youtube. I restarted the computer. uBlock Origin is in Add Ons, and is switched on. However, I am still receiving ads. First ad is before the clip plays. After 5 seconds, I can end the ad. Second ad is really intrusive. It interrupts the clip. Perhaps I misunderstood the capabilities of uBlock Origin, or how to use it. I would appreciate any recommendations Firefox version on my Windows 7 PC is: 79.0 (64-bit) Thanks.

The results of searches are always dominated by US sites. I live in Ireland and sites from Ireland, Europe generally, Australia, India, Middle East, are more relevant to me. Is there a search term such as "Not US"? I don't want to exclude America totally, just push those results further down the list.

Hello,

  How do I change my security back to Standard from Strict.  I recently changed it to Strict because I thought there were too many cookies and Ads when browsing.   Now when I got to my websites like Banking and Medical they have to text me a code first to complete the login.

I can't remember what I did or where I was just know it's a pain and need to go back to before.

Thanks, Roni

Firefox somehow got corrupted and I had to reinstall. In the process I lost all my bookmarks. I found a number of JSONLZ4 files in an "Old Firefox Data" folder and copied the most recent one to my desktop, then tried to do a restore from it. Nothing. What am I doing wrong? Thanks very much...the loss of my bookmarks is a major catastrophe, any help in getting them back is much appreciated.

How do I get rid of this error message as it just hungs the firefox browser. Firefox used to worked before and not it is just as slow or worse than the old Internet Explorer. I did the refresh and it does give you a sort off cleaned up instance and then as time go through, its back again. And yes, Firefox is my default browser.
