When you have a number of pinned tabs that you want to stay and during a session a blank window opens behind your current active session (or you open one for some reason and forget it is open), when you close your main session (with all the pinned tabs) and find the single open blank tab session - if you close that window the next time you open Firefox it does not open all your saved tabs and you don't have the option to "restore previous session" with all the tabs because it remembers the blank window session.

Website changes when developing never show the change even with cashing is operative. Regular history cleaned ETC ETC - Means CACHE CLEARING NEVER WORKS. This is a VERY BAD PROBLEM that is quite common. How these idiots at Mozilla have never fixed it indicates they useless. I've been recommended NEVER to use firefox because of this issue. So its back to Chrome and I hate supporting Google.

I have been successfully using FireFox for many years, recently we downsized into a Condo,now 81 years young. I have FireFox as my default browser choice, but it only lists Google on the search bar, when I type in my search in the box under the Firefox name it immediately jumps up to the top of the page Google browser.

How do I get back my screen to use FireFox as my search engine ?? I have tried to change it but will only give me two options Google or Google ?? Is it possible to go back to the screen and try and start again??

Many thanks to anyone who will give me info as to how to rectify my problem, be gentle with me as I am efficient in using the computer but less so trying to solve my problems. Robin

I had jira as my default search engine (https://jira.<mydomain>.com). This continues to work on my existing profile. But i am unable to add it on a new profile, I get an error "Firefox could not install the search engine from: https://jira.<mydomain>.com/osd.jsp"

So, i tried copying the existing profile folder and using that folder for the new profile, but firefox removes the jira search engine and gives me a warning saying that the default search engine was changed to Google (screenshot attached)

Is there a way to get this added via a hack of some kind? I wanted separate profiles so that I keep my project profiles separated - bookmarks, cookies, scripts etc.,

I once found a live bug opened for this, but I don't find it anymore.

The spell checking dictionary, as many pointed out, is horrible. It lacks tons of common words, as well as commonly used tech,internet, you name it - jargon words.

Is there (there should be) a repository to add missing words? Through my usage I add words to my private dictionary. Would be shame not to use this as part of this bug handling.

In each update there is, my browser is reset, the history, tabs, and all other data is lost with no way to get it back. I'm given no warning of when this will happen and frankly, this shouldn't even be an issue. This makes Firefox unusable and despite my love for this browser, I won't be using Firefox unless the issue is resolved.

I have lost several very important tabs and data, and this isn't the first time. This has happened since I got Firefox. This ussue makes this browser unusable and unreliable.

I don't know what kind of changes have been done but lately I have 2 major issues and am ready to change Firefox as my default browser. I can not print properly without having to change my default settings each time I want to print something and even then sometimes my page will print correctly. The second issue is trying to search something. I will type in my search using google. It will show the topic of my search in the bar however when I hit enter I get a blank page. If I try to use another search engine it sometimes will show results. This happens inconsistently and most times I have to stop what I'm doing & use another browser to print or search. Very frustrating. I do not have this issue using chrome or edge but honestly Firefox is the browser I prefer .... UNTIL RECENTLY. Please do something to correct this as I have checked the community page and have seen others with similar issues.
