Hi,

After losing my session history and bookmarks from using firefox's "forget last 5 minutes" feature on accident, I used shadowcopyview to create a backup of my old profile. Now, after two reinstalls, I still cannot recover my session or bookmarks, even when replacing the old profile entirely.

JeffersonCher's wonderful scrounger has helped me to recover from a similiar blunder in the past, but this time, attempting to recover the session from a recovery file gave me 3 websites I haven't visited in 2 years and an error message when attempting to recover the bookmarks.

Anything you can provide would be a big help: I am very confused on how to really proceed.

Thanks!

Hi, long time listener first time caller.

A site that I visit quite regularly, https://www.bunnings.com.au/ , has suddenly stopped loading in the Firefox browser. Below is a screenshot of the webpage as it loads now. I have run the "Troubleshoot firefox" and disabled all add-ons and still no go. Firefox is up to date (new up date today 22/04/2021- Australia) All other sites I visit load fine. https://www.bunnings.com.au/ loads with no issues in Chrome (I don't use Chrome because I find it less customisable than Firefox) I have been using Mozilla since the Netscape Navigator days. The error message is in the very top left corner. You can see the chat window loads but can't be accessed. Browser version is 88.0 (64bit)

Hope you can help

Thanks

Windows 10 quickbar icon corrupts on new firefox update

yet the icon i keep on my desktop stays fine. is it an issue with opening firefox and then pinning that icon? when the new version comes out, the old link is bad? been going on for a couple years. but now its just annoying.

I can't simply copy the icon from my desktop to the quickbar. Going to end up erasing the old icon, stopping the process.... opening a new firefox and pinning it again. but its only good until the next update. any ideas?

Normally use Edge. Using latest version of Firefox for something Edge doesn't do. I know how to get the Page Info (Tools/Click Padlock) but noticed in the popup context menu for this version that it is missing now when right clicking on a page or image. Only see View Page Source in the menu. Anyway to get the context menu back so it shows "View Page Info"? Maybe edit the "about:config page"?

I need to disable the Toggle Menu Bar activation hotkey F10. I use the F10 on the keypad as PointerFocus Spotlight hotkey. However, every time I hit F10, it brings up the Menu bar, which means I have to stop and hit F10 again or hit ESC. This is quite frustrating and slows me down immensely when completing my homework.

So the issue is if I navigate to a certain page it starts to load but takes 60-90 seconds to complete. The page in question is: https://www.walmart.com/co/Wrangler-Men-apos-s-Regular-Fit-Jeans-2-Pack/19759033

I have tried this with all Add-ons disabled and also in full Troubleshooting Mode, but it always does the same thing. The pages starts to load but the indicator in the tab keeping going for 60+ seconds before it finally completes.

I see the issue with Firefox 88.0 on Windows 10, and also with Firefox Nightly on my Amazon Fire table but there I got a Warning: Unresponsive script error .... ..... .... Script: https://i5.walmartimages.com/d...4e97-a031-6d8ef8af50bc.v198.ja:1. Seemed to be okay with Firefox Nightly on my Samsung phone, but it might be because it does not load that specific page. Also seems to be okay with Opera and Edge.

Reviewed "Sheribee" earlier issue which apparently involved a VPN. I do not have a VPN but have tried several times in the past week to access IRS refund status site without success. I can get into irs.gov, but am unsuccessful in accessing the refund status site after entering required input data. The issue has occurred only this past week.

I'm unaware of IRS issues causing this problem.

Have not had this issue on any other sites; and I have successful retrieved data in prior years.

I am not saving any sign on protocols with the irs or any other sites.

Running Windows 10. Thanks for any help. BTW I did get refund information using the telephone, but I want to ensure there's not a hidden conflict of some sort with FireFox. Thanks for any help.
