I had a Firefox crash twice in a row so lost my Restore Previous Session option (greyed out). I had a lot of important tabs open! Looking around the forum I think the data on the lost tabs is in sessionstore.js (I have sessionstore.bak too). Both contain a lot of text which looks like it has the information Firefox needs. However when I do File>Open File>filename it opens in a tab as text - how do I gt Firefox to use the data to restore my tabs? Windows7 Firefox 31.0 Thanks for any help...

The plugin check page says that Adobe Flash Player is vulnerable and I need to update it. I press the button to update it and install the new version, but then the plugin check page still says it needs to be updated, even if I reboot it still says that.

It says: vulnerable 16.0.0.287

I tried uninstalling flash completely and installing the latest version from Adobe, but firefox's plugin check page *still* says that it needs to be updated...

I've found several sets of instructions on the net for this but none of them seem to work. They seem to direct me to functions or commands that simply aren't there. HELP!!!

No matter what I change in the connection settings the following pops up on my screen. HELP!!!

Unable to connect

Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at support.mozilla.org.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

I don't know when this happened, but today I noticed that I cannot paste text into youtube comments on firefox. It still works just fine on Chrome. I tried to use an addon to copy plain text only, but that didn't help, nor have I ever needed it before.

Is this google's latest monopoly trick or something, or what is going on?

I have set a particular email site on the first tab. I know how to set or change it. Now here is my query- I wish that whenever I open a new (second and subsequent too) tab, it should always open Google to facilitate my search. If I want to change it, I will do it manually. I have also set Google as my search engine, still it does not show up automatically on opening a new tab. Pl guide.

Running Firefox on Windows 10 on my laptop (I upgraded from WIndows 8.1 a month or two ago), the Flash Player plugin hasn't been working and said it was out of date and that the latest version should be installed. When I try to install it I get a message

     Adobe Flash Player
     Application initialization error.

On advice I tried uninstalling the previous version and deleting the downloaded exe file before trying again, but I still get the same error message. I have also tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, and have tried rebooting my laptop between various stages (as suggested in a reply to a similar post), but whatever I try, I still get the same error message.

I have seen this problem posted several times without a solution and having fixed it, I am making the effort to let all know the answer.

Here is the error / problem: "The RETR command did not succeed. Error retrieving a message. Mail server pop-server.woh.rr.com responded: no such message."

I had this happen some time ago on another pop on RR mail server and logging in via Web Mail and deleting the emails worked BUT.. It happened again on another pop account and it did not work.. So... I nuked the pop via the master account and re-added it.. nothing so, I ran check disk thinking a FAT corruption NOPE, I restored a MOZBACK of Thunderbird from like a month ago Ziltch.. I called useless RR support and nothing!

FINALLY *Scratching Head*.. In there change your Junk mail options to "delete the email". I had one junk email stuck in there and after refreshing that page..That one Junk Email was gone and THEN Thunderbird worked checking that pop..

WAHLAH!

I hate when the simplest of things do not work and it pissed me off nobody had the answer.. HERE YOU ALL GO!

My Firefox updated today and all of a sudden the color of all background tabs is black. I really dislike this, and I am finding it extremely difficult on my eyes. I did a search of help on how to fix this, and it suggested addons. I have no problem downloading addonns, but none of them are compatible with the most recent version of Firefox. Is there a way to change the black background of tabs so they're not so annoying? Thanks.

I have just installed Firefox 57 (Quantum) 64 bit on my PC and my Laptop (both Windows 10 (1709)).

On both my machines, Quantum displays pages appallingly slowly and often freezes, when no tabs or the settings menu can be selected and nothing else produces a response.

I cannot believe that this software has been properly tested on users' machines at their homes - its deficiencies would have been blindingly obvious. Their is clearly a huge problem here.

I was so looking forward to returning to Firefox but it is a complete disaster.

Please find a fix soon or I will have to uninstall Firefox, maybe permanently. It is useless to me in its present state.

I'd like to know how to DISABLE the obnoxious Firefox Quantum auto "refresh"? This supposed "new & improved" browser will not allow the formerly used "add-ons" and other tricks to negate the automatic page refresh, which is an absolutely and totally unnecessary incessantly obnoxious and annoying feature to put it mildly. This obsession with this refreshing is a poor design & is unacceptable.

Since installation of Firefox 58 at Windows 10 I cant access to all SSL / Https pages, also not to Google.com !! Solution is already described by manual updating / deleting and import the Kaspersky certificate (better to edit and simply flag the 3 check boxes of trust setting" for AO Kaspersky Lab).

But: when edit or import the certitificate, always my Master Password for Firefox Password manager is requested. And at next Firefox start the certificate trust setting flag again is blank and previous settings are lost. If no Master Password is set, there is NO Problem. Previous Firefox version had not such problem and works well ! Thanks for your help! All other browser on my PC work well without SSl certificate error!

I noticed this very intrusive trend recently: First, I have one tab open, and on certain sites when I click on a link (or anywhere on the page, ie. input fields or just the middle of nowhere) it opens the link (or the same page) in new tab, and the previous tab where I was originally loads some ads or other unwanted stuff. (I never checked it thoroughly) Sometimes this goes on 2 or 3 times in a row before I get to my intended destination, leaving me with 2-3 tabs on the left, that do who knows what in the background. Is there any way to get rid of this problem? Thanks in advance for any solutions!
