So for the second time this month my bookmarks in my toolbar have disappeared. I was signed into my Firefox account both times they went missing. I tired to restore from backup...... nothing. I made sure that the tool bar was enabled.... nothing. I'm so frustrated, as I am in full-time school with three days left in my term and all my textbooks and course sites are GONE!! I don't understand why this keeps happening.

Help!

When i switch on my computer i have to make sure that i open Firefox and restore the previous session before i do anything else.

For example, if you click on a link in an email - and if Firefox is not open - then it will open Firefox and you have lost access to your previous session tabs.

Yesterday, when i switched on the computer Adobe wanted to remove a program - so i uninstalled the program and then it opened a page in Firefox so i lost 50 tabs. Sigh.

SUGGESTION As well as having the option to restore the previous session could we please have the option to restore the session before that? I think this will make a lot of people very happy.

My browser recently updated to 83.0 and the search engine switched to Bing. When I go to Preferences - Search, the default search engine is listed as Google. Even if type something in the bar and then click on the Google icon, it searches on Bing. If I click on the DuckDuckGo icon, it searches on DuckDuckGo. How can I switch my search engine to Google?

I use an app that enables me to scan an expense to pdf, then opens the pdf file so I can see the details to enter the amount, supplier, expense type, date into the bookkeeping system to create the bookkeeping entry and attach the pdf to it. I use Firefox as my default browser (version 83.0). However, I cannot see the PDF data anymore - it is totally blank, so I cannot use the functionality. I have queried this with the bookkeeping support who say this is a browser issue. If I use another browser e.g. Opera the functionality works fine. Can anyone suggest whether this is a Firefox settings issue or suggest a fix? TIA

I want to change text encoding so it defaults to Unicode. If I use the [alt] key then the View tab I can change it from Western but it reverts back after closing the page. Sometimes that does not work because the Text Encoding option in the View tab is greyed out. The About Firefox window says I am up to date with 83.0 (64bit).

I have "Restore previous session" checked but when I restart my computer Firefox does not start with the previous session. Currently I have many tabs open and need to restart Windows but I looked in my profiles folder and do not see any of the session files and backup folders.

Why are the session files (sessionstore.jsonlz4, recovery.jsonlz4, recovery.baklz4, previous.jsonlz4, sessionstore-backups) missing from the profile folder?

I can't restart Windows because I don't want to lose my tabs. How do I get Firefox to save the session to disk?

Greetings everyone,

Sorry to be making a thread about this, but I really need some help.

I was in a hurry to update Firefox to "Firefox 83.0" and because I was in such a hurry I think I may have clicked the wrong button and damaged the Firefox Update process? I'm worried that I interrupted the update process from "Firefox 82.0" to "Firefox 83.0"

Is there any way to check that the update to "Firefox 83.0" was successful and that I'm running the latest version of Firefox and that there are no problems???

Thank you for any help!

EDIT: Fixed grammar

Firefox keeps displaying '400 Bad Request Request Header Or Cookie Too Large' when trying to read articles on www.bloomberg.com.

It only happens when using this site and only on Firefox and not on Safari or Chrome.

How to fix this and be able to use Firefox as default browser for this site?
