FF won't restore old session anymore (blank tab)

Usually the very first tab that loads in Firefox is the "Oops, something went wrong, do you want to restore your last session?" one. Since today the tab doesn't show up anymore all of a sudden.

Firefox is still using 1-2gb of RAM (like the old, huge session is loaded), even though the only tab that's open is the one I'm using to write this.

The "profiles/xxxxx.default/sessionstore.jsonlz4" file is almost 70mb. I already deleted it and used the other 70mb one that was created yesterday ("sessionstore-backups/recovery.jsonlz4") instead but the first tab still loads up empty and FF is pretty slow/kind of laggy. "History > Restore Previous Session" is greyed out and there's nothing in "History > Recently Closed Windows".

I just updated to 68.0.1 but that didn't help either.

Any ideas how I can make FF load the old session or at least make it give me the option to restore it?

I have an input field -><input name="Description" type="text" id="Description" value="<?php echo $row_TicketItemTable['Description']; ?>" size="70" />

When I click into to it it shows: This connection is not secure. Logins here could be compromised. ver 68.0.1

and on another field it displays logins and passwords that have been saved. This is must be corrected.

Firefox 68.0.1 YouTube HDR problem

Firefox 68 thinks that I have an HDR equipment and I have to watch HDR versions of differnet youtube videos instead of SDR.

Video links: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hVvEISFw9w0&t=111s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQVwkyn3-F8&t=131s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FYjApop7Mk&t=8s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mHUOCxVT5ro&t=23s

This is an example, this glitch happens with every HDR bt2020 video. Edge and Chrome show SRD versions of videos as it should be.

This is Youtube info in Firefox 68.0.1: Codecs vp09.02.51.10.01.09.16.09 (337) / opus (251) Color smpte2084 (PQ) / bt2020

And this is youtube info for Edge: Codecs vp9 (272) / opus (251) Color bt709 / bt709

As you can see - different color profiles. I have no HDR monitor. Windows 10 HDR settings are grayed out. I have tested Firefox 68.0.1 on Windows 7 with old and slow NVIDIA card and on Windows 7 with middle-level AMD Radeon. Results are the same: Firefox shows HDR versions of the videos.

Btw: the problem in gone if I use Firefox 67.0.4. But problem remains in current Firefox Beta and Nightly. Also I have faced this problem in Firefox 68 for Android: it forces me to watch HDR versions of videos, while my smartprone has SDR screen. I ve got latest video drivers for my GTX1060_6GB. I have cleared profile, cleared cache, reinstalled Firefox, ran Firefox in safe mode. Nothing helped. I still forced to watch HDR videos on SDR equipment.

I can't find my Firefox bookmarks on new computer with Windows 10 they are not in IE either. I can find my "favorites" on the HD but I can't import unless I do them one at a time. I have tried all the options I could find but unless I missed something nothing is working. I thought Firefox bookmarks and other data was automatically saved to a cloud.

The USBank Payment Confirmation page has a print button. Using the print button used to print looking the same as the online screen, up until about the beginning of June, now it prints two lines for each online screen (ex: "Fees: No Fee" prints Fees: on one line and No Fee on the next line). Using IE instead of Firefox prints just fine. Also 70% or 100% printing makes no difference. Scaling is automatic.

Since Firefox was forcefully updated to 68.0 and higher nothing works. It’s so “SECURE” now not even the owner of the PC can access the web. I cannot check my email; I cannot do any online shopping etc. I already downloaded and installed Opera browser. If someone knows how to do the settings so Firefox works again that would be nice otherwise I will be forced to just use other browsers

Hey,

So Firefox updated to 68, it created a new profile, that's fine, my old profiles were fine, but as soon as I sign in to my Firefox account and sync, they're not. I had to change a whole bunch of settings back to how I had them. I'm also trying to install the Dashlane Extension, but everytime I do, it keeps opening the new profile Firefox made, and I can't get in on the old ones. Do i now have to recreate all my old profiles?

I'm getting a PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR when trying to visit a site I've gone to scads of times and strongly believe to be valid today.

Is there any sort of workaround that would allow me to get to this site?

(And, BTW, why does Firefox absurdly tell me to inform the web site about this error when the error prevents me from getting to the web site?)

There are a million support articles on this and other sites that show all the steps to importing your passwords from Chrome to Firefox, and they usually include a screenshot that is identical to the one I've included, except for they also have a box you can check to import passwords. I successfully imported my cookies, browsing history, and bookmarks, but there was no passwords box for me to check and I haven't been able to import my passwords. Why is it that option not showing up for me?

I have an HP Probook laptop with a Core-I5 CPU, 8 GB of RAM and a WD Black NVMe SSD running Windows 10 version 1809. it's about 4 months old and has been running fantastically. I use Firefox as my default browser and have had no problems with it until two days ago, when it suddenly developed a massive delay. it shows up in multiple ways. When opening a webpage, my CPU will jump to about 50% and I cannot scroll for a number of seconds, as many as 10 seconds. Also, highlighting/copying/pasting operations have as much as a 10-second delay before they appear on screen, and I sometimes cannot type in a search box for several seconds or text I do type doesn't appear in a search box for several seconds. I've tried refreshing Firefox and also starting it in safe mode with add-ons disabled, but the same symptoms happen then. I uninstalled and reinstalled and that had no effect. I performed a complete uninstall using Revo uninstaller, rebooted and reinstalled and even then it still has the same symptoms, even though I haven't added any add-ons or extensions. I've run malware scans and disk cleanup with no improvement. I can browse normally with IE or Chrome and they show none of these symptoms, but I prefer Firefox. Please help me determine what suddenly changed on July 20th or 21st, 2019. I've used Firefox for years and never had a problem like this, and no amount of refreshing/reinstalling/rebooting/disabling add-ons or extensions seems to have any effect. If it comes down to a complete format/reinstall of Windows, I'll likely just use a different browser but I'd really like to get Firefox working again.

I have been getting with a spam web page. It is getting through your security. It appears to be unique to Firefox because if I use IE, I don't get hit. I have a VPN that it doesn't get through either, but the VPN slows me down and blocks some of the things that I often do (at least for now - just installed it). The URL locks the screen and only Task Manager will shut down Firefox. I am running Windows 10 Pro (happens on Home, also), McAfee Multi-access Total Protection, and OpenDNS. Copy of screen attached.

Please advise. Thank you.

I use firefox version 68.0.1 on my macbook air version 10.14.5. I use Keeper password manager version 12.4.1. Recently, I have found that when I go to my employers outlook remote email, the page doesn't load fully and basically freezes up. there is a flag whereas it doesn't like the city email system security certificate. It all works great when I remove Keeper, so this seems to be the bug.

please see the 2 attached pictures. I installed firefox on my new ubuntu computer and was asked to sync so I tried and kept getting a thing to past a code of some sort to allow this sync to happen. After about 20 tries, I finally figured out what I was supposed to do. In the mean time, something was happening to the other computer (the one I'm having the sync problem with) with regard to it wanting me to sync again and again, over and over. I login and it seems from the yellow triangle with exclamation mark that the browser wants me to re-sync. maybe I dont know what I'm doing. No, I certainly dont know what I'm doing.

When I open a new tab it opens a new window with each tab opened. Each new window contains all the tabs from the previous window. It eats memory like nobodies business and nothing I have tried seems to fix it. I tried resetting Firefox, removed extensions, different theme, re-installed it. Nothing... It's started malfunctioning even more. I can't mute tabs. video doesn't show but audio comes through very loudly in for live streams. If the player doesn't have it's own mute function it won't mute... It's a mess. Help!
