Whenever I see the "restart required" screen (either because I entered about:restartrequired or because Firefix just pops it up) and I click the "Restart" button which promises to restore Firefox and all my tabs, Firefox never, ever restarts.

Hasn't from day one over 3 years ago.

I've waited for an hour, and nothing happens. Eventually I have to click the icon to start it manually.

Not a great bug in the scale of things, but I really don't like software that lies to me. Maybe someone could fix the message ? Or the bug ?

In Ubuntu Linux, Firefox will no longer display YouTube videos in full screen. The full screen freezes with the video playing in a smaller window in the upper left-hand corner. This may have occurred when Version 80 was installed.

Hello! I know the theme is the same, that you are asked to add a page translator to support without any third-party extensions, why? Because the extensions do not translate correctly at all! Please add a built-in translator like Edge Chromium, if you please, it's the 21st century! Thank!

Shortly after upgrading from Release 79 to Release 80, I noticed I could no longer save webpages in an HTML format. I could only save pages in TXT format. I do this many times per month, so I know this changed quite recently.

When attempting to save, everything seems to go the way it always did before; however, when saving in COMPLETE format, all that I get is the folders one normally gets, but they are empty and I also do not get the HTML page outside those folders.

When saving in HTML only format, I get nothing at all in my chosen destination folder.

My brother seems to be having the same issue, so I would expect many others would have already reported this.

I am running Windows 10 Home.

Thank you, Any help you can give is appreciated.

With an image I have to click on the semi circle arrow and click re download. The second time it's fine and It downloads no problem. Can anyone help me?

Hi,

Last week, Firefox told me to update my android phone browser. I did & updated it with firefox nightly. I used this opportunity to change my main email address. Then, I decided to create a new my keyword, on my phone. At last, I created a backup key to protect my keyword & downloaded it, but can't find it anymore.

Since, impossible to open my account on any of my devices (Macbook, IPad & Android phone) because my main keyword is considered wrong.

Computer browser is 80.0.1 version IPad browser is 28.0 (18809) version.

I have a main email address & a secondary one (which receives no information from firefox). On my phone, I'm asked a 4 figures code that I can't find anywhere. I tried to download the QR code authentification application, but my MAC browser does not show any QR Code, it asks me the main keyword.

I don't want to loose all my IDs & keywords. I'm going mad, what should I Do ?

Hi, I'm using a Macbook pro (OS Mojave) & Firefox (80.0.1). I'm having issues when I'm in Outlook365 (web version) and I click the People icon at bottom left to send an email to my Contact Lists. I select a list, and Send E-mail, and the pop up window for Outlook Office 365 opens but there is nowhere to write the email. Just says "Loading" with a spinning wheel. Works with Safari, though.

Same for sharing with Google Drive. When I click Share, it says "Sorry, Sharing is unavailable at this time. Try again later." But it too works with Safari.

This just started happening a couple of weeks ago. I stopped all the extensions. I even threw out the Cookies and Cache, restarted, and refreshed/reinstalled Firefox.

Any help would be appreciated.

When I am using gmail I have the calandar application on the right. It has a link to open the full calandar in a new tab. However, firefox throws a warning about the page doing a redirect and I have to click allow. How do I turn that off for gmail / calandar only? I've looked at the exceptions but that doesn't seem to work or I'm not looking at the right settings.

whenever I try to open a webm in a new tab (no matter if I already have it on my desktop or it's from a website), firefox asks me to either open or download the webm, but neither will actually play it.

if I press "open with firefox" a new tab opens with just the same message and en empty background. if I download it and then open the new saved webm, it's the same aswell.

My Firefox version is: 80.0.1 (64-Bit)

I use Linux Mint with separated root and files partitions. I always select the downloads to be saved in the files partitions, but a copy is also saved in the root. I discovered this when I clicked in the "open containing folder" icon in the downloaded files list. Is this a bug or a setting? How can I make just one copy of the file? Thanks!
