Session Restore is once again greyed-out/unclickable, and I had a huge amount of tabs open. It will take forever to figure out what even a fraction of them were, is it possible to try to restore them some other way.

Any way to try to restore or at least get a list of what my suddenly unrestorable tabs were? I mean, aside from looking through every single item in my entire history and… (read more)

Any way to try to restore or at least get a list of what my suddenly unrestorable tabs were? I mean, aside from looking through every single item in my entire history and then trying to figure out whether I had already finished that project or not?

(I'll get old and die before I complete that.)

I had many many tabs open, in many many windows, and I discovered long ago (this is not necessarily a good thing:) that if you have the internet on your device shut off while you start firefox up, and while you session restore, though all the urls and the tabs and the windows reappear, none of the are actually loaded, they are just sitting there, and you need to reload each page/tab before the computer seems to use any ram (if that's the word) to run the page. This unfortunately allows a distractable procrastinator like me to accumulate literally thousands of unfinished tabs, which I was of course going through one by one and closing, but I had tons and tons of them open still.

When session restore suddenly no longer is an option, (it is greyed out, and not for the first time,) are there any other options?

I hear mumblings from the web that imply there may be.

such as this?

anything else? or do I have to just give up and start over? (and ON that note, how can I avoid this in the future, there must be some way in lieu of me actually finishing one thing before starting 100 more,) to avoid this?

p.s. getting them back, somehow, would be what I desire, first.

The following two pages

www.hartley-kent.org.uk www.hextablegardenweather.co.uk

redirect to this page, which I have visited before

https://www.plus.net/member-centre/login

I know the first page has no redirect at webhost so I don't know why this happens. Same problem in Chrome and Edge. Malware is unlikely as Plusnet have thousands if not millions of customers.

Hope you can help!

I've downloaded a couple of add-ons this week that did not do what they claim to do, so I wanted to leave reviews so other users won't waste their time. Except when i got to do so, i am surprised to see that therte is no clear way to write a review for an add-on. I am logged into the add-ons page, i can view the previous reviews for the add-on, but nowhere does it inticate how I can leave a review. Google led me to the Mozilla add-ons wiki which states "You can complete most of the review using the reviewer tools at addons.mozilla.org" except there is no indication to where one can locate these "reviewer tools." Seems a bit funny to me that Mozilla would choose to hide the functionality and make it so difficult to use.

Any help is appreciated.

Since earlier this week my Firefox browser has been turning .jar files from GitLab into .jar.zip files, which prevents them from being used properly until renamed. Attempting to download the same files on Edge or Chrome works correctly, and attempting to download any jar files from other websites (even GitHub) also works correctly. It seems that GitLab is the only website that is affected by this.

Examples of files being affected (they should be downloaded as normal .jar files): 1. https://gitlab.com/Trafalcraft/antiRedstoneClock/uploads/3b3c84814d76810f826c3803eaca1e66/antiRedstoneClock-1.4.1.jar 2. https://gitlab.com/Aristois/ui-installer/-/jobs/2505715157/artifacts/raw/packager/Aristois-Free.jar 3. https://gitlab.com/Aristois/Installer/-/jobs/2495195255/artifacts/raw/packager/free/Installer-2.0.3.jar

I'm using Firefox developer edition (102.0b3), and already tried using private mode, resetting Firefox, and reinstalling. Since I use GitLab as a main source to upload files, many users have also complained the same problem to me, in which all of the users were running Firefox. After they downloaded with a different browser, it worked for them as well.

Running Firefox 102.0 in Win 10. When I try to download a PDF file, I get (1) a dialog box saying the download failed, (2) two 0 byte files in the download directory with the name of the PDF file I'm trying to download, and sometimes (3) a PDF file with a filename of 8 random characters that appears to be the file I'm trying to download. How do I fix this?

I've been through a rough patch with Firefox the past couple of weeks.

Cutting to the chase: I exported all my bookmarks and imported them in a new profile.

But the icons that used to be there aren't.

Not *end of the world*, but just something I noticed.

(I just about shot myself in the foot) Ok, after using one to open a tab and the icon returned. So is that how they get their icons?

So i began teaching a UX design course on an institution and we are used to work with google slides to make a presentation. In terms of evaluation, every student need to present the resolution of the challenges we make to assest their performance through the course. I noticed that my students that do not use firefox see their slides on a different way that i see them.

For example: i notice that, when the font placing is right for them, for me it's off (i view the placing as if it is apart from the slide, or maybe i see the font not being well distributed in its text field) The same thing happens with every element they put on each slide: i see them differently. This does not happen when i open the file in other browsers.

I add an image to clarify.

I would like to know if there is a solution for this, because i would not like to correct my students using other browser, honestly.

When I am on USCIS.gov, if I click some links, I get "502 Bad Gateway" error. I then have to switch to use Chrome. I've had issues with Firefox also when trying to get help at quickbooks. I have to switch to Chrome for that as well. It's a nuisance. How do I fix it? I'd rather use Firefox but I have less problems with Chrome. However all my bookmarks and browser bar links are on Firefox which is why I would rather stay with Firefox.

Why can i not set history to delete after 30 days? It appears the only option is an add-on which Firefox warns might not be safe. This is a security issue and Firefox is supposed to be good for security, but I can find no setting that will allow me to clear page history older than X days (30 days is my company document control policy). Even IE has this feature.

I had two Mozilla windows open, I closed the main one with 190+ tabs and the second one remained how can I return all the tabs that were there. I tried to solve it through the menu of recently closed tabs, but they are not there and the Mozilla did not crash and through the tab of the closed windows, there were no tabs either.
