I have multiple windows open with multiple tabs on each. Most created before I had a Firefox login (if that makes any difference).

I am upgrading my os on my Mac and somehow either a) keep all the windows with all their tabs open (preferable) or b) easily create some record of what they all are so I could relaunch them if a) is impossible.

How can I do this?

I recently refreshed Firefox and now I am having trouble streaming some news channels from my TV provider. The message I get is "FIREFOX IS INSTALLING COMPONENTS NEEDED TO PLAY THE AUDIO OR VIDEO ON THIS PAGE. PLEASE TRY AGAIN LATER."

I went to my Settings under DRM and found some articles on how to watch DRM content. I dug a little deeper and went to Manage Your Plugins and noticed two Enabled Plugins - OpenH264 Video Codec and Widevine Content Decryption Module provide by Google.

Under the Widevine plugin, there is a message highighted in yellow that reads - Widevine Content Decryption Module will be installed shortly.

It's been like this for 2 days and I don't know what to do next.

Mac OSX 10.13, FireFox 115.1.0esr (64-bit): previously cmd-click on link would open in new background tab. Now it opens the link in BOTH current tab and a new background tab. This has started occurring in the last few days (mid Aug 2023). This is especially a problem when viewing CraigsList where it was very helpful to be able to cmd-click on links of no interest to mark them as "read" while remaining on the main list page. Now it is necessary to back up to previous page (main list) after clicking on each link... Is this perhaps a recent change (I had auto-update turned on)?

I am getting SO tired of being told to stop or close the page THAT I AM USING to speed up my browser. How is that going to help anything? If I stop the page that I am USING, then I cannot do what I want to do. How about you stop cramming in so much garbage that the browser cannot run properly?

And, yes, I know...this is an obsolete computer....so what?

I am using an iMac that uses MacOS High Sierra version 10.13.6. Because of its age, it cannot use an operating system beyond High Sierra. When I selected to update Firefox today, Apple generated a message that said Firefox would no longer work on my computer. Firefox 102.14 Oesr (64-bit) is installed and seems to work.

Will I no longer be able to update Firefox?

Hi, Ive got FF version 115.2.1esr 64bit- Macbook Pro High Sierra.. I was watching amazon shows and movies until last night, started to get the message from Amazon, "Video Unavailable- We're experiencing a problem playing this video, for assistance, etc..." I pulled up Chrome and the movies are playing just fine there. I put FF in 'safe mode' and the video is playing, so what does this tell me? If I can play the movie in safe mode why not in regular mode? Keep in mind that I was watching other movies earlier in the day and nothing changed during the day, I didnt download anything new, just business as usual. So what do I do now if the vid plays in safe mode and not the regular mode?

Thanks very much for any help.

I have the latest version of Firefox installed on my iMac and my MacBook Air, and even though I'm signed into my same Firefox account on both, and have synced bookmarks on both, the bookmarks on my toolbar on each device are different.

How do I get the same Toolbar bookmarks on both devices?

I have two websites listed as exceptions in my autoplay settings that I cannot remove. Please see the attached image to see the addresses.

I cannot remove these websites and I cannot change the settings to block all audio & video.

Anyone have any idea on what might be going wrong and how to fix it?

I am using the current versions of Firefox on my 2008 MacPro, My 2014 MacBook Air and my 6th Gen iPad.

Thanks!

How to best organise tabs without keeping windows/tabs open all the time

Let's say I have 20 windows open, each with 30 tabs on. Instead of these windows consuming resources and sitting open, I want a really, really easy way of "saving" each window as is (as they're organised by topic), closing them, and then by hitting just a couple of buttons voila, I can see all the potential windows, select what I need and have it open, and easy to shut again in reverse.

How can I do this? I can't make head nor tail of Firefox bookmarks - have examined the menu option, have read the articles, still as clear as mud. For example, "save all tabs" doesn't seem to mean save all tabs, it just means save tabs in the window you've maximised. Then after creating its own folder in Bookmark menu, when I added a new tab to it I thought that would update. It doesn't. Then I manually did another "save all tabs" for that menu - and the new tab didn't appear.

I don't even know if Bookmarks is the way to even attempt what I'm trying to do here in my question. Does anyone have any great tips on how to minimise the firefox window clutter, but have it really accessible easily?

Thanks.
