I'm having a problem selecting articles that I would like to share with personal friends - i.e. grandaughter to their e-mails. (Not Facebook or Twitter, etc.). This used to be available but not accessible now. Some websites have this feature, but others do not.

Please advise. Betty

Is there a reason no one has developed a simple Restart browser button, that will open the browser in the same, last session?

I know you can do it from "About:Profiles", but it would be convenient to have it on the toolbar. I'm sure a lot of people would appreciate it.

How do I stop autofill for email address? I use several email addresses. Firefox autofills my email address when I complete forms, but it uses an email address I never use when completing official forms and documents and I have to change it manually. I prefer to complete it manually, so how do I stop Firefox from autofilling my email address period!? (I have gone through all of "Settings", but I can't find any option that will fix this situation.)

I have been using protonmail for years now. when I tried to bring it up just now I got Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to mail.protonmail.com. The OCSP response is not yet valid (contains a date in the future). Error code: SEC_ERROR_OCSP_FUTURE_RESPONSE The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem. They say it is a time issue but the time and date are correct. Why Is this happening. I would hate to change browsers as I have been using firefox for many years.

I have been using the website for over six years Now why does the website work on other browsers? HOW can we contact the web site owners if we CANNOT access the site? Dumb suggestion or what ?

There used to be plugins in much older version of FFox, but those days are gone. I understand that the Sync function allows sharing of login/passwords between several machines, but is there any way to simply backup login/passwords of one computer that does not share anything with any other computer. There does not seem to be any way to do this -searching FFox help yields nothing.

Sometimes, the simple ways work well, and this would be such an occasion. This function ought to be built in to every software program, but unfortunately this does not happen.

Thanks for reading

Hello. I want to find what level of search filtering is being as default by Firefox. All other browsers I have seen allow users to select "No Filter", "Medium Level Filter" or "Safe/Restricted Filter." I have also seen it called "Restriction Level." Where may I find the page to make this simple and common change? Thank you!

Hello, John aka Beer Gutt here.

A while ago (about three months), I moved my hard drive to a new PC with better parts. It has a better mother board, a better graphics card and twice the RAM. Anyway, since then Firefox hasn't worked the same. When i open Firefox, there will be random pieces of letters or words on a webpage just gone, making a lot of them impossible to browse because I can't read half of the the new Alien dialect on the screen. Some websites have been better than others, but its gotten to the point where some web pages (Like YouTube or Reddit for example.) will just be a mess of random de fragmented lime green blocks that completely corrupt the page and will shift, move and appear at random covering up text as I scroll down. Videos will play just fine, it's the rest of the site that's effed up. Also on YouTube videos, where the timer for the video is located, some of the numbers just won't show up. Like it will count down fine but won't display certain numbers in the timer. Funny thing is, is that this doesn't just affect the websites, but the browser itself. For example, hovering my mouse over different tabs will highlight them and show me the preview text of the tab. All that is good until I move over to a different tab and voila, the text is gone, and then suddenly all the other tabs are either blank or just missing random letters and numbers in the tab. This is only happening in Firefox btw. No other app on my PC is doing this. I've tried refreshing Firefox about six times now, I've uninstalled it three times in an attempt to fix the issue along with restarting my PC multiple times... All of that, and I find out yesterday that it works perfectly when in "Troubleshoot/Safe mode", and only when in Troubleshoot/Safe mode. I have no idea what is causing the issue... *PePeLaugh* 
 See, I would use another browser but I've been using Mozilla for 8-9 years and would like to avoid the hassle of moving everything to a new browser... I would VERY much appreciate any help at all.
 I'm running 64-bit windows 8.1 on the latest updates and my PC specs are roughly as follows below. I look forward to a response...

MSi 970 Gaming Motherboard

AMD FX(tm) 8350 Eight-Core Processor 4.00 GHz

24 gigs of RAM

Asus Radeon R9 380 Graphics card

Since sometime in August 2021, I suspect after an update, occasionally when I launch Firefox it reports that it was unable to restore a previous session. I do not have the option to open previous sessions selected. On other occasions it starts properly with a blank page as it is configured to do.

Am I missing a setting?

It is not a major problem, I can simply enter a URL or search string in the address bar and it works properly for the rest of the session.

It is happening both on my Windows 8.1 Pro and Windows 10 Pro PCs running the 64-bit version of Firefox.

Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thank you.

Firefox has been blocking more and more websites that play music or video lately. These are clearly secure. I see the "connection not secure" notice because there is supposedly a problem with the certificate. All the help tutorials from Mozilla do not work. For example, I can't listen to internet radio (example: http://radio.orange.com/radios/helpmechill). Have Windows 10, I clear the cache regularly, it is also not a problem with external security program like ESET etc.. Suggested solutions do not work, I have no option to turn off the security blocking temporarily etc.

Firefox Browser 92.0 (64-bit)

I go to Firefox "Preferences", I click "Privacy & Security",

1 SCREENSHOT: I scroll to "Cookies and Site Data", It is written "Your stored cookies, site data, and cache are currently using 528 KB of disk space. Learn more", I click the button "Clear Data..."

2 SCREENSHOT: a pop up window appears with 2 check boxes: "Cookies and Site Data (0 bytes)" and "Cached Web Content (528 KB) Will require websites to reload images and data" I check both boxes and press clear,

3 SCREENSHOT: another pop-up window appears "Clear all cookies and site data - Selecting ‘Clear Now’ will clear all cookies and site data stored by Firefox. This may sign you out of websites and remove offline web content." I click "Clear Now" and nothing happens...

4 SCREENSHOT: it is still written "Cookies and Site Data - Your stored cookies, site data, and cache are currently using 528 KB of disk space."

HELP!!! I keep clearing over and over and it will not go to zero? It stays at (528K)? Please help me fix this annoying problem.
