Hi Im writing this post from my kids laptop but the problem is with my computer. I was in the middle of something when computer froze and it is now dead. I was able to check if I can access files from live cd and yeah I can see my files but I need to reinstall windows7. When I do it I will loose my files. I need to recover few more things than just files. The question to you is... how can I recover all my tabs, my open session, all logins, passwords etc in Firefox?. Im hoping it is stored somehow deep in windows and I can just copy/paste these files to new reinstalled windows7

When I try to access [https://www.surinenglish.com/] I got the following:

Forbidden. You don't have permission to access / on this server. Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request. It has worked fine on this system and this browser before and still works fine in Vivaldi. No changes in AV software and no improvement when all extensions disabled. What could be causing it in FF (latest stable, Win 10)?

Hello,

I'm not sure when it started, maybe a week ago. When I open firefox, I'm logged out of "most" of my accounts sometimes. I'll log back in and it will last a few browser closing and reopenings. Some websites seem to log out quicker, or it's possibly just random.

I've been using Firefox for a very long time and I've never had an issue like this. It's frustrating because I have to go through 2-factor each time a website logs me out. And so far, it hasn't happened to Discord in browser. It affects Gmail, Hotmail, Twitter, Facebook, and Reddit.

I did not change any settings recently until after it started happening (I set "Enhanced Tracking Protection" to standard thinking it would help but it hasn't).

Thank you.

I did a browser refresh, and when it was done, almost everything it was supposed to save was gone. "Firefox will save these items:

   Bookmarks
   Browsing and download history
   Passwords
   Cookies
   Web form auto-fill information
   Personal dictionary "

Bookmarks, gone. Home tabs, gone. Browsing and download history, gone. Cookies: spotty. Autofill; partly missing.

And a new tab is now completely blank (see attached image). I thought it might repopulate itself, but nope. Just blank.

All my home tabs were wiped, and I was able to put them back. But this outcome was unexpected. Some places I had to log back into; some I did not.

So I feel like I am now dealing with a broken browser, and not sure what to do about it. At least the buggy hangups and crashes seem to be fixed. Maybe.

edit: Also noticed I cannot make new bookmarks. Halp....

I wish firefox would add the capability for multirow tab bar and multirow bookmarks toolbar. It shouldn't be an addon that may or may not be supported in future firefox versions, it ought to be built right in. Sure we can hack it in (at least in this version), and i have done that, but that's not a really useful solution.

I am currently running Windows 10 on my desktop computer for over 10 years and I have been using Firefox as my default browser. I’m currently using Firefox version 82.0 (64-bit) and I’ve noticed that Firefox take a longer time to launch from a cold boot of Windows 10. Is there an Add-on or something other feature that I can use to make it boot faster initially? I currently use CCleaner Version 5.7 to make my computer run faster. Your prompt response to this issue will be greatly appreciated. Wilbert Kelley xxxxxxxxx@xxxxxxx.xxx

Before shutting down Firefox I deleted history/cache/passwords etc from the past day

I do this all the time but since I had restore previous tabs selected they always get restored when I start up again

However this time they weren't restored when I restarted

Without closing Firefox I navigated to the sessionstore-backups folder to see what was there but the files were only 2KB - much too small for the number of tabs.

So I installed ShadowExplorer & Shadowcopyview to see if I could recover older versions I was able to locate jsonlz4 files from a few days ago that were around 11000KB in size so I assumed they would have most of my tabs

However when trying to use the files nothing happens - I tried 2 different steps that I read here had worked for others

1 - Renaming previous.jsonlz4 to sessionstore.jsonlz4 , moving to the profile folder (deleting the old one first) and restarting FF

2 - Deleting sessionstore.jsonlz4 and copying the recovered previous.jsonlz4 / recovery.baklz4 /recovery.jsonlz4 / upgrade.jsonlz4-20201014125134 files to the sessionstore-backups folder and restarting FF

I also repeated the steps after creating a separate profile

None of these worked so I tried examining the jsonlz4 files using https://www.jeffersonscher.com/res/scrounger.html but I got an error message 'Session history file contents could not be read?'

Now I've previously used recovered Jsonlz4 files to restore tabs with no issues but this time they won't work

I read here https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1189759 that updates may cause compatibility issues and the upgrade.jsonlz4-20201014125134 file indicates they was a recent update

The recovered file sizes indicate they contain data so I want to know how I can recover it - if not through FF then through some other software

How do i stop firefox from annoying me with "Whats new in this update" message? I don't do updates very often because most of the times firefox gets worse after i update, before it gets fixed again. I have that problem on PC and Android phone, so i know its true. The old way over "About config" does no longer apply. The prompt pops up every couple of minutes and annoys the hell out of me. PLEASE HELP ME TO STOP THIS NONSENSE. Thanks

For a long time now I had been able to access this webpage using Firefox: https://weather.bom.gov.au/location/r3gx0kn-alexandria . In recent months the browser does not even recognise anything has been typed in. On the other hand, Bing (my back-up browser) does take me to the site. It came to Firefox for a day or two earlier this month but is gone again. Can anyone suggest a fix please?
