I'm using Firefox 104.0.2 (64 bit) under Windows 11.

Under Settings I have selected Startup Open Previous Windows and Tabs.

I normally have more than a dozen tabs.

For the past few days, when I start Firefox my previous session is not restored and I just get the single Firefox tab.

When I got to History there is no longer a Restore Previous Session option.

How do I get it back?

Thanks

Firefox Reader view is being defeated on some sites even though Firefox shows the Reader view icon. Example, on CNBC.com news pages clicking the Reader view icon replaces an article’s content with a CNBC page about their cookie policy, e.g. try using Reader view on https://www.cnbc.com/2022/08/26/iphone-gestures-and-hidden-menus.html Is there some way that Reader view can be made to work on these pages?

Trying to use ProctorU with Firefox 104.0.2 on Windows 11 Home, and I am getting the following message : "Monitor Count : You may only use 1 monitor during your exam. Your monitor count could not be found". I searched for possible fixes, and someone mentioned removing fingerprinters, and possibly also remove cookies and tracking content from Firefox enforcement. I removed all 3 and that did not help. I also tried clearing cookies and site data and also cached web content, this did not help. Is there some other setting in Firefox that might be preventing the detection of the monitor count? Any suggestions on how to fix this issue?

I have recently been denied access to CWTV programs because they say Firefox has an ad blocker. I have not checked the box to block pop up windows, and although I seem to get most ads, sometimes pages full of them, at times, mostly on emails, there are empty spaces where an ad is supposed to be and I don't know how to disable any ad blocker because the only reference the Firefox settings has regarding ad blocking is the block pop up windows option, which I have not chosen. CWTV thinks the shield in front of the address box means I have an ad blocker, and they told me how to disable that, but I know that is the Firefox traffic blocker icon. not an ad blocker. So what do I need to do so I don't have any ads blocked?

I have lost access to my e-mail account that I registered Firefox Accounts with and now I can't login to my Firefox account despite knowing the correct password because it insists on entering a code sent to the e-mail address I have no longer access to. Is there any way I can login to my Firefox account only with my current password to change my linked e-mail address? Or somehow ask support to change it for me manually? If none of that is possible, I want to, at the very least, deactivate or delete said account because I'm worried about the possibility of abuse.

Hi all,

Had my text font changed all of a sudden. I'm not sure if I've accidentally pressed a shortcut to change any setting.

Image attached also show that this change has caused some misaligned numbers on a browser.

Is there a way to revert text to my previous settings?

DailyMail.Co.Uk And Autoplay: Issue Resolved

Maybe someone knows the answer to the following:

When I visit Dailymail.co.uk, it shows a video clip (there is a link in the video box to play the 'full video') but there is no audio:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11174031/Meghan-Markles-Archetypes-knocked-No-1-spot-Spotifys-podcast-rankings.html (3/4 down the page-It is a Meghan Markle video).

I am using Firefox and I went to the Autoplay option and selected 'Block Audio And Video.'

1. Is the clip 'still playing' because it is not 'technically' a full video or am I missing a detail?

Answer:

2. On Facebook, the 'GIF Videos' play automatically until I click the video (in order to stop it)-Why is that?

Hello, From FF 99 I have removed the floating tabs with CSS code but after updating to 104 instead of the active tab being differentiated with a shadow it now has a black border. Is there any way to change that back while still keeping the CSS code I have for the floating tabs?

The code I have is: .tab-background{ border-radius: 0px 0px !important; margin-bottom: 0px !important; } .tabbrowser-tab:not([selected=true]):not([multiselected=true]) .tab-background{ background-color: color-mix(in srgb, currentColor 5%, transparent); } .tab-background{ border-color: transparent !important }

Thanks.

The "ask where to save downloads" option does not work. It always downloads to the default folder. When you check the AWTSD box, it DOES NOT grey-out the "save to" folder destination. So I'm not sure where the error is. Is it because the "save to" folder is not greyed-out that it saves to that folder, or is it because the check box for "ask where to save downloads" doesn't actually enable the "save to" pop-up window? Thank you in advance for any and all assistance with this!

Hi

I have admin access to four Wordpress blogs. Three are working fine. But on the fourth blog, when I click on my notifications to access comments that have been left on posts I get a blank screen and a spinning wheel.

The site works fine in other browsers, so the issue lies with Firefox not Wordpress.

I've done all the usual, like clear cache and cookies. I've tried disabling extensions/add ons, although if this were the problem the other three Wordpress blogs would be affected. Nothing makes any difference and I'm still getting the spinning wheel and am unable to access any notifications for this one site.

Firefox is up to date. I use Windows 11.

Any help appreciated as I'm at a loss as to why only this one Wordpress blog is affected or how to solve the problem.
