Hello !! I notices a strange behavior of Firefox in my notification area of MacBook Air M1 running on macOS Sonoma 14.0. Many times when I am using firefox or minimizing it, it is showing "Firefox is capturing your screen" that can also be seen in attached image. I am not using any type of screen recording or screenshot too in any way neither having any plugin or 3rd party integration in browser nor any proxies. Sometime it also using the Mic and giving symbol of Mic use for few seconds. What's happening ? Can you please look into it.

Hi, the official Firefox docs recommend copying and restoring the entire profile directory. That doesn't work when restoring a profile created on Linux, on Mac, it seems. Neither for Thunderbird, by the way.

Is there a proper way to do this, or should I experiment with each of the files (databases, configurations, etc.) one by one? Thanks!

I've lost a previous session because firefox updated. This happens all the time. I've lost so much time and work due to restore previous session button being grayed out. Is there a way to go back? Or do I have to try to find all of the tabs one by one in history? Is there any other way? I never get my work back like that. It's so frustrating. I'm going completely crazy from this. Any help would be very appreciated.

I need to go back two sessions. Is there any way to access that?

I also lose everything every time I restart. If I'm not careful any immediately restore previous session, I lose it. Is there any way to fix this issue? To make firefox remember and restart in the previous session instead of starting a new one and deleting the previous one?

Yahoo Mail allows me to sign in, but then the mail page is completely blank. No navigation, no images, no text, just a whole blank white page.

I am on a Macbook. v11.7.10 - Firefox 118.0.1 (64-bit) Yahoo main page, news, etc all work fine. Yahoo Mail works fine on Chrome. Yahoo Mail on Firefox works fine on my Windows desktop.

Yes I have tried clearing the cache, etc. What's next, uninstall and reinstall Firefox completely? That's my only guess.

upgraded to v118 9'30 Bookmarks lost and not able to access old profile, or restore using "Manage Bookmarks"

See attached: Only see one real profile (current, new) in App Support > Firefox > Profiles. The second profile that exists has virtually nothing in it compared to the new one created upon upgrade. Only three tiny files key4,cert9,pkcs11. Nothing else to restore from.

Bookmark manager >> restore >> despite seeing 10 dates to chose form , error messages every time, "unable to process the backup file." Now what?

I do see a "places.sqlite" file which seems to show "last modified" date of prior to my unfortunate update. But when I try to have Firefox open it, nothing happens. Just new browser windows every time.

THX in advance.

9/30/23 ~ I think the last automatic update, for my Firefox browser, messed up my access to Zynga. I'd like to uninstall the update. I've seen where I could "start over", with Firefox, but I can't seem to find it again. I'm willing to go back to the basics if I could play my game again! What do I do? I've done all the things I needed to do via Zynga (over and over) and it's not helping!

I cannot stream china open tennis via tennis tv - login problems, crashing problems. Unresponsive to login details Sometimes I can log in but then cannot open specific matches Other times the screen just goes blank There is an account login icon in lower left hand corner of the screen, but if I try to refresh the screen the icon changes its nature and does not respond, then I cannot log in or out It is random and unreliable when I am trying to stream the tennis I have never had this problem with this website before, and I have been a subscriber for 5 years The first two photos are how the login icon should look. The third shows what is happening to the login icon The fourth photo is the blank screen that I sometimes get and cannot move away from - the screen is stuck I really dont want to have to use Safari and definitely not Chrome Sherrill Carta shcarta@gmailcom

Per version 118 we now have the possibility to have webpages to be automatically translated from its original language to another one. As end user I get prompted for every page I visit whether I would like that to be translated. This is quite the flow-stopper. I have no need nor interest for this amazing functionality. However, I can't find anywhere an explanation on how to disable that functionality. I would appreciate it if I was not prompted for this translation possibillty. My question: how to disable this translation functionality alltogether? (I.e. How to stop Firefox asking me about it?)

The new 'search tabs' icon is incredibly annoying and distracting. So far, I've found no way to get rid of it or disable it. I already tried using the 'customize toolbar' action, but the icon would grey out and return to its position, so that was a bust. I've attached a picture of it below.

It is on the right upper corner of my Firefox window.

Thank you in advance.

Hey!

For over a year some webpages show up blank in my Firefox browser. They all work fine in Inkognito/private windows.

I have tried emptying cache etc. Running Ventura 13.6.

One page recently stopped working and show: Application error: a client-side exception has occurred (see the browser console for more information).

www.pinterest.com is completely white.

Facebook.com shows up fine but does not work properly.

Any instructions on exactly what to do?

Out of the blue, I can no longer download files using the download arrow. I used to get the prompt asking where to download the files but now don't get anything. I'll get a zip.part file on my desktop, where I have my downloads saved, but that's it. I've updated Firefox, restarted, uninstalled/reinstalled and nothing works.
