Hi,

I lost all my windows and tabs on the latest firefox upgrade and I am trying to restore the session.

I've done this many times in the pat and I know it is as simple as renaming the old session file and moving it, but I never seem to remember exactly what I need to rename and move! I wish there was a simple tool that did this, as I always seem to waste a lot of time trying to remember and figure it out.

Anyway, I found the previous session in the backup session folder . I renamed it: "sessionstore.jsonlz4" and moved it to the main folder - but this didn't work. Actually, whatever happened it erased the file! Fortunately I still have another version of the file backed up.

What do I need to name this file and where do I need to put it so that Firefox will recognize it as a previous session and allow me to load it?

Thank you for your help.

Hi. When (re)opening a number of bookmarks, e.g. from MySessions v2020.7.0 or OneTab v1.29, just recently, not before, it opens them in reverse order. Is there a way to adjust/fix/set that list top becomes left most and list bottom right most in the horizontal list of tabs? I am sure it is not those two extensions, since it worked before. Would be great if FF had a feature to reverse all tabs t1, t2, t3...t97, t98, t99 to reverse order t99, t98, t97...t3, t2, t1. How can this be done with existing FF, tools or extensions? Or is there a setting in about:config that would allow correct/reversed (re)opening order? Thank you!

I want to change the font family or font face of the the URL bar, bookmarks and tabs. I went crazy finding out solution for this but i could not find any. I have already customized the default font of the browser but it doesn't change the font of the above mentioned areas.I tried to change in the (about:config) settings but as soon I searched for fonts then 100's of settings appeared and I was overwhelmed. Please suggest me some solutions...

Can anyone explain why every time I use Facebook & I go to a website that's on Facebook like an animal rescue, or say Bored Panda etc the site I visit seems to take Mozilla hostage & seizes it up not allowing it to accept my commands to do as I'm asking it to do. Such as, back out of the site I'm visiting & go back about my business. It happens every time & I have to pull up task manager in order to close out of Facebook & restart my computer & I lose any info in any other programs I may have left open etc. It's quite maddening. Thank you for any help, suggestions.

What are the security risks of lauching -no-deelevate option as suggested in this Article (link)

About this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/windows-administrator-launcher-process-error-fix#w_how-to-verify-the-problem

In order to solve the drag and drop issue under win7, article above suggests "Start Firefox Using the -no-deelevate command" but doesn't clarify what would be the risks on doing it.

I mean, the security risk is only mentioned in the next suggestion "partial workaround", saying it would be rather than lower security by using -no-deelevate instead, but also gives no information about what risks would be.

So I would like to know:

1) If I decide to use -no-deelevate option, what sort of risks I'm taking?

2) To a no fool internet user, is it worthy to take?

This is relevant for me cuz re-enable UAC makes user have to confirm dialog box to everything at all in Windows despite logged as full right administrator.

Nor less annoying are the other option "copy and paste" "save as", putting me under ridiculous situation of needy to use Opera browser only to be able of drag IMDB links and images into a folder, then backing to Firefox for everything else.

You can drag an image even to a folder in an USB external drive (OMG-WTF)

Thanks you all.

Hi, I dealt with this problem several time and I decided to write down my solution to save of others time. In case you install firefox on Windows 7 and your htm, html files are showing blank white icon instead of little foxxy one, all you need to do to go for registry as below: - I am using Firefox v.84, ues problem is there since firefox v.2 - - Type regedit and go for "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\FirefoxHTML-308046B0AF4A39CB\DefaultIcon", perhabs you see a differentt number beside FirefoxHTML or even no number - - Double click on Default key and change the value to "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe,1", not to mention without "" - Don't forget to backup whole your registry before editing it - Restart and you will probably see the Firefox icon on your saved html files

Good luck

Hello dear FireFox, pls help me!

When I enter 100% correct e-mail password into sync window of firefox 84.0.2, firefox says "password is incorrect" :(( If I immediately enter the same password into another window with other FireFoxPortable, or older version, then other FireFox successfully logs into my e-mail account for synchronization ! If i back again to the window №1 with FireFox 84.0.2, the password incorrect again (pls look to screenshot)

Already i tried to use other accounts, including new, specially created, but this does not solve the problem of logging to my gmail@**** account for synchronization :((

Earlier, on older versions of FireFox , this problem did not exist, although I used the same accounts. Thx before! :)

Since 2016 i've been using firefox on PC and i've been perfectly content with it until a few minutes ago I discovered this annoying blemish that i'd rather not have in my menu bar when browsing, except I can't delete, alter, or move it in any feasible way because I want my 'more' folder to be visible for easy access. Has anyone been able to remove this? Help would be much appreciated.
