No Saving or Restoring of Windows and Tabs, Even With All Add-ons Disabled, Unless I Restart in Safe Mode

I have posed this question under "Fix slowness, crashing, error messages and other problems," and under "Other," and have not gotten a single response. So I am trying it again here.

This is a major glitch, and I am surprised that no one else is dealing with it too!

Is there anyone who works for Mozilla who monitors these forums who can help?
=========

After upgrading to FF 84, my previous sessions are no longer saved and restored unless I restart in Safe Mode.

- I have Restore previous session checked in Preferences.

- I have opened new windows and tabs and one by one disabled and restored every add-on that I have had enabled and quit and restarted each time, until every single add-on has been disabled, and still the previous sessions are not saved and restored.

- I have looked in the sessionstore-backups folder with each restart, and there is never any file for the previous sessions in it.

- I have cleared all my cache before quitting and restarting.

- Again, even when there are absolutely no add-ons enabled, the previous session is not saved and not restored.

- Again, only when I restart in Safe Mode is the previous session saved and restored.

What is the solution?

I'd like to hide the title bar in Firefox. It takes up valuable on-screen real-estate, and doesn't really serve a purpose (other than showing a web page's full title, which I'm not interested in anyway).

In this screenshot, I have Firefox on the left, and Brave on the right. Now, I know it's only about 30 or so vertical pixels, but the title bar in Firefox is taking up a lot of space that could be used for actual web content.

Is there any way to disable this top bar? Or is it baked into the actual program itself?

Apparently Mozilla did an update and not it defaults to it's own printer dialog box. I hate it. There is a link to use the system print dialog box but it only works for that specific print job. I can't find a setting to force Firefox to always use the system printer dialog box. Anyone know how to fix this? It's enough to make me stop using the browser becasue thr Firefox dialog box sucks.

We want to customize the look & feel from firefox. We are using the userChrome.css file.

In the past we used the following entry to hide the menu bar in Firefox:

  1. toolbar-menubar

{display: none !important;}

Now on Firefox 78.6 (ESR Release) this works different. The menu bar is hidden but the close Icon (and the minimize/fullscreen Icons) are hidden too.

Is there a way to hide/disable the menu bar but keep these icons/buttons?

I use Firefox for work and I have a site that has a pop up window that shows me alerts. When I use this site on Edge or Google the site makes either a sound or blinks in the taskbar or both. On Firefox I cannot get it to do either of those. The site seems to work best in Firefox but I need an alert sound or visual to let me know there is an item for me to review. I have gone into settings and tried to change things to make this happen with no luck. Any help would be appreciated.

Hey there!

We have error logs being created fairly regularly for user(s?) with a particular Firefox extension. We are trying to identify this extension to determine the cause. I know a reverse-lookup (ID to name) service exists for Chrome extensions. Is there something similar for Firefox extensions? Thus far, I haven’t been able to find one.

The extension ID/source in question is: moz-extension://ba9d01f7-5cbf-442b-94bf-f030a6fdc626/scripts/uninterrupt.js

Any insight that can be provided would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

(I originally posted this in the discourse forum, but this forum appeared to have a larger audience, so my apologies for the blatant cross-post... but I'm kind of at a loss here.)

The print dialog box has been changed, Now I see no way to add or modify custom Header text. I am all for simplification and streamlining, but not dumbing down so much to the point of removing functionality which is seemingly has happened here. Used to be able to change the text as shown in attached picture "Page Setup"...is this just gone now? Please help, now I will have to try in another browser or use a sharpie.

In the age of COVID and a switch to more remote work the dependency on online meetings has increased. The company I work for uses Google Apps for Business and has been using Google Meet for a long time, and I've never had any problems with it not working. Recently though, when I join a meeting using Firefox, nobody can hear me and it appears Firefox is not able to access my microphone. Here's what I've done to test:

1. Reviewed Windows 10 settings to make sure microphone input slider is up. 2. Checked other browsers, running Google Meet using Chrome works fine. (Note: everything was working before and I attempted to use Chrome to try out changing backgrounds. It seems like this is when my problems with Firefox began) 3. I've tested my microphone using https://www.onlinemictest.com/ initially it didn't appear to work, but if I tap on my laptop screen near the microphone I see lines showing activity, but it won't pick up voice. Using this same tool in Chrome works as expected. 4. I tested using Private Mode - Same results. 5. I tried clearing the startup cache - same results. 6. I tried using Safe Mode - same results. 7. Refreshed Firefox (using Troubleshooting Information screen (Refresh Firefox...)

I'm at the end of my rope trying to figure out what's going on, and why it only appears to be Firefox that's having a problem. Other apps like Zoom, and recording video using just the webcam on the computer also works fine.

Any help in getting this figured out would be appreciated. I try not to use Chrome if I don't have to, but switching to Chrome so I can join web meetings is a real pain.

I've had "HTTPS-only" turned on since it became available in a recent Firefox update, but its behavior seems very odd. I frequently get the error window that says HTTPS isn't available and gives me the option to cancel or proceed to a non-secure site. But most of the time, the page that opens when I click to proceed is indeed an https page.

Why is the Firefox module seeing these pages as non-https and not just opening them as they are?

Hi,

I'm trying to disable the media popup in windows 10, which appears when you lower your volume or skip a song or anything (see added image). I have a brand new pc and on my old pc i was able to fix this easily by doing this: go to about:config and change this: set media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled from true to false.

I did that now, with my new pc as well. But i just does not work, i restarted my browser and pc after changing it, i set it back to true and back to false again, it just will not work.

I googled this issue, but the only solution i find, is what i exactly the thing i described above, nothing else.
