After clicking on Delete cookies and Cache for only ONE particular website, in Cookies and Site Data, Manage Data then closing Firefox and restarting it, it lost ALL of my Tabs, previous browsing session history and my Bookmarks Setting which was pinned on the left side of the screen and the Menu Bar! I tried Refreshing Firefox but that didn't help. Under Startup, I had the box selected to Restore Previous Session. What's going on with Firefox?? This is especially frustrating because I don't have time to waste trying to fix Firefox---especially while simply trying to fix a problem with one website which as made thing worse.

Why should this problem occur and how can I get all of my previous settings back shortly and make then stay?

I have Windows 10, version 1903. I recently backed up my Mozilla Roaming and Local profiles to an external drive before replacing the hard drive in my laptop.

After replacing my hard drive with a new one, I restored an earlier image file of my computer in order to put back all my data onto the new drive.

Then I did a Fresh Start, effectively doing a new install of Windows 10 (v.1903).

(As far as I can tell, my old Firefox data was deleted during the Fresh Start reinstall.)

I now did a new install of Firefox onto my computer. After I opened it I synced. Because my favicons were not restored (a generic globe icon shows in their place instead), I'd like to load in my old saved profile and make that my default profile.

The problem: So I tried copying and pasting the saved profile ("bxfz7tby.default" ) back into the new Mozilla Roaming and Local profiles (e.g, into "C:\Users\,username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\", but I can't get Firefox to access them. Instead, it only accesses the new profile it created.

I did an uninstall and tried it again, but all I ended up doing is creating another new profile. Now when I go to About:Profiles (see image), the default-release and default profiles listed don't seem to exist anymore (they aren't loadable, and they can't be found using the filepath noted there), and the actual backup profiles that I copied from my portable drive into Mozilla and that I actually see in File Explorer, doesn't show up as a profile choice.

How can I restore my old backed up profile? And if I do restore it successfully, will that also restore my missing favicons?

I downloaded Firefox installer (for version 79.0) on Windows via Edge from here https://www.mozilla.org/pl/firefox/new/ Checksums of the downloaded installer are (calculated by `certutil -hashfile "Path_to_Firefox_installer" SHA256` and `certutil -hashfile "Path_to_Firefox_installer" SHA512` in Windows command line):

SHA256 caceeacec49a4d4cac94bb48266adb28bc53515345619e336c26488846717a56

SHA512 0c1ffcd219c0c788ac01064bfbb800a95990111539e7ed20c7e9b279c7502e59cef1c7b0274f57cba71bd3bf2493d579b9f7157346ad9a0821913ecba6558e02

they do not match any from https://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/79.0/SHA256SUMS and https://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/79.0/SHA512SUMS

When I downloaded the same installer on Windows via Firefox checksums were different than before (calculated by the same command)

SHA256 bc4dd6ce1b53b194bc95ef908278f670494dd5fb782eea2da563098e58a2db3d

SHA512 ecec87468644b2219618e21e127d54460222346fb639a11bdd31685ffcd9ce56219991a64e4144f2f80a8f88672dbad3ab4f0edda388c11c4d9bcd8446e16a8c

they match "win32/pl/Firefox Installer.exe" on "https://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/79.0/SHA256SUMS" and "https://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/79.0/SHA512SUMS".

What is strange the signatures of the files are identical. I downloaded installer two more times (with restarting computer in between, why not) and it gave me exact same hashes depending only on what browser i used for downloading them. Is it a known problem when downloading firefox via Edge? Is it known why this happens? Does this problem occur to you? Is Firefox downloaded via Edge safe to install?

Thanks

Hey guys,

the following problem has recently occurred on my Surface Pro 4. I switched from Chrome to Firefox. After the change, everything went smoothly.

Suddenly the on-screen keyboard could no longer be opened when using in tablet mode. If you tap an input field, the screen keyboard opens first. The window then appears to refresh itself and the keyboard closes again.

The only way to use the on-screen keyboard is to move the browser to the right or left side of the desktop and pin it. The keyboard works as usual in this half window.

Apart from updates, I've added the ublock and umatrix extensions. Could the problem come from there?

Hi there,

we are running Firefox ESR 78.1.0 (64bit) on our company computers (Windows 10). When i try to open linkedin the startpage appears correctly but as far as i search for a person i only get a blank page.

I also tried to open a linkedin profile within firefox 79 on a mac, same issue here.

Any held is much appreciated.

Every time I'm using location service at a website via Firefox, whether it's Google Map, or any other website that has a map build-in with pinpoint my location feature, when I want to know where I am on the map, Firefox just cut down my wifi connection. The connection seems to be intermittent, meaning: computer will receive packets for couple seconds, and then it will pause for no reason, with zero packet transmission, then suddenly it will start receiving packets again and it goes on and on. Sometimes, the connection just cuts off completely for a minutes or two, just like a resetting, with no information being transferred.

I am using a USB wifi extender just for better signal receiving. This situation only happens with Firefox browser, Chrome and Edge have no problem at all. I've tried many helps from online, such as: disable IPV6, disable DNS prefetch, change a different network, disable all adds-on. None of these helped my problem.

Any ideas what should I do next?
