I'm using Firefox 104.0.2 (64 bit) under Windows 11.

Under Settings I have selected Startup Open Previous Windows and Tabs.

I normally have more than a dozen tabs.

For the past few days, when I start Firefox my previous session is not restored and I just get the single Firefox tab.

When I got to History there is no longer a Restore Previous Session option.

How do I get it back?

Thanks

Browser crashes & main profile becomes unaccessible when update is available

Dear Community,

I've been struggling with a very peculiar error with my Firefox in the last couple of weeks that I haven't managed to find a solution for. It's kinda disturbing and makes me want to stop using the whole thing, even though I'm a big fan of Firefox.

1.) The first sign of the error is the browser suddenly becoming partially unresponsive. The UI still works - as in, you can scroll down/up on open pages, navigate through menus, open/close tabs, etc. but no HTML content is loaded JS isn't running. First I thought this was just bad connection, but I had a stable internet connection and other browsers would load the same pages. 2.) At this point, when I try to close the whole app and restart it, I get a message that the browser is already running. The dialogue box also offers to force restart the app, which doesn't work (it stops the process but doesn't restart it, so I still have to manually launch the app). 3.) After manually launching after failed force restart, I'm getting another error message saying that I'm using an "old version of Firefox", due to which my old profile "might not work". I can either exit the app or create a new profile. From a new profile I can load profile manager but I'm unable to launch the other profile. However, indeed there is an app update pending. 4.) After the update is installed, the browser launches the new profile and and then from the profile manager I'm able to load the other profile, set is up as standard and remove all other profiles. After this step, all seems to be normal and Firefox keeps working without any issues until a next update is found, but then the whole issue starts from point 1.

First time I suspected that the profile is corrupted, so I deleted it and resynced the settings from my Firefox Account, but this has not helped, so I fully removed Firefox with all the data stored on the local drives and reinstalled it. Then the latest version was installed and the profile worked, so I presumed the issue to be resolved until a new update came. In the last month there's been at least 3-4 updates, all triggering this very peculiar issue issue. I was thinking this might be known so the devs would release a fix soon, but I couldn't find the same issue mentioned, so now I'm suspecting one of the add-ons acting up. However, since the issue only reproducible when an update is released, it would somewhat complicated and time-consuming to deduct which one is causing the error. Hence, asking question here as I'm wondering if anyone had encountered anything similar or could suggest any further steps to fix the error.

I'm using 104.0.2 (64-bit) and following add-ons:

I haven't captured the exact error messages but I'm happy to do if that sheds some further light on the issue (would have to wait until next update for the issue to happen though). Any tips would be appreciated.

And if I cannot recovery my ID, can I delete addon that already being distributed.

I have been observing an issue since a month that- a few YouTube videos are not being played when it is opened in Firefox, whereas the same videos are working fine in other browsers. The videos are getting loaded by the time, and the captions are also visible but no picture is visible and no sound. First I thought, may be it's an issue of the AdBlocker (uBlock Origin) that is enabled in my browser, so I disabled it and tried again, but still the same problem.

One of the videos I'm having issue with- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W_lzMUGgeYg

Hire staff instead of your blind leading the blind approach would be appreciated.

Case in point, password security regarding access to my Last Pass vault!

Through one of your updates, my master password to access my Last Pass account is shown which allows anyone to access my last pass vault. Your instructions are useless and incorrect and your real support is a joke.

If you have an accurate solution that applies to your CURRENT version, I would appreciate your help.

As a FYI, Chrome and the other normal browsers have retained the requirement to provide their master password to gain access to my Last Pass vault.

Aside from this issue and lack of real support, your browser is great. If I can's get a solution from you, I will have to stop using your browser.
