Firefox 93.0 always attempts to restore previous session, even though I have that option disabled.

I want to completely disable the 'restore previous session' option.

I want to start a new session with my preset home pages 100% of the time.

Having Firefox display a page 'unable to restore previous session' with the options of 'display previous' pages and 'start new session' is inconvenient at best. I do not want to see that page, I just want Firefox to automatically start a new session every time I open it.

In the Tools menu settings tab, the 'Restore previous session' checkbox is not checked.

Using Firefox browser for iMac. Recently (10/10/2021) attempted to download .aax files from Audible.com. Files were unexpectedly converted to .mp4 files, making files unusable by iBooks. Conferred with Audible Tech support. Audible Tech confirmed that .aax files are the proper format and that they did not/do not make any format conversions on their end. Audible Tech then suggested trying download with Safari. Download (of .aax files with Safari) was successful and maintained proper (.aax) format. Audible Tech said that he had not encountered this issue before and that it seemed to him that the Firefox browser may be responsible for the unexpected conversion. In the past I have used Firefox many times to successfully download .aax files from Audible.com, most recent prior to this problem was on (9/11/2021). I am notifying you simply to advise that you may have a programing glitch within the download programing portion of the latest version of Firefox (ver. 93.0 - 64 bit) for iMac(s).

This is interesting, Firefox has a feature where clicking in a Password box brings up the option to"Use a securely generated password" option... which is cool, except that for some reason it's not letting me generate a NEW one on this website I'm on, it keeps giving me the exact same password as my old one!

This is problematic because the website won't let me re-use a previously used password when resetting my password!

How do I tell Firefox to generate a brand new securely generated password?

I had 9 Firefox applications running in my Task Manager which was taking up too much memory (over 50%)

I came across this topic and solution here and reduced the processes in the settings from 8 to 5.

Instead of reducing the number of processes - as stated in your reply - they have increased to 11 with only 2 tabs open.

Any idea what is going on here, and how can I REDUCE the number of Firefox processes?

No sound at all with you tube videos. Started in last few weeks. Any explanation and/or fix would be appreciated. Latest version of Firefox 93.0 64 bit - Win 10.

Have checked the basics of sound settings. Sounds turned on and working fine on any other application and through the browser - just you tube clips are void of any sound.

I keep getting reminders to install the latest version of Firefox. Is the latest version going to remove the menu bar at the top of the screen as Thunderbird did? That is the dumbest thing that Mozilla ever did. If that bar is gone, I don't want the latest version.

Newest version of Firefox created extreme issues with my iMac. Did everything possible to try and remedy slow opening, crashes, freezes, etc so I used TimeMachine and installed previous Firefox version but in process I lost all my bookmarks, etc. Firefox created folder of old user data and placed it on desktop called: Old Firefox Data. However, everytime I go through process of trying to reinstall it via Firefox help page under Profile, all I get pulled up to reinstall is Safari or Chrome. How do I get Firefox to pick up Old Data File?
