I have used Firefox for many years now and love it and keep telling my friends and colleagues to switch to this browser rather than Google Chrome.. There is something that happens irregularly with my 'pinned tabs', every now and again when I close Firefox the next time I open it up, they are all gone. I go through history and replace them and 'Pin' them and its all fine for a while then it happens again. Most recently - in the last two days it has happened twice, it takes some time for me to restore the tabs and pin them, then I have gone into 'Options' and I have set the box (ticked it) for 'Restore previous session' but its not happening. Also when I go to the 'three bars' up on the top ribbon on the far right the option to 'Restore previous session' simply isn't there! I have no idea what is happening but its very frustrating and I would really appreciate some answer as to what might possibly be going on? Many thanks for your time, much appreciate and love your work everyone.

The articles in the Help section say to click on the menu on the right of the Firefox window, then select "Add-ons". The Flash extension should appear and I can set it to "click-to-run". The problem is that the Flash extension isn't there. I have Firefox 75.0 . Thanks

Yahoo Mail contacts disappeared when using FF, but show up when using Chrome

Hi all, yesterday I was trying to send an email (yahoo mail) (which I have used exclusively for years) and autocomplete was not working. Puzzled, I checked my contacts to see if the person had somehow been deleted, and to my surprise - I had NO contacts. Oddly, they were all there if I checked "Yahoo Classic View." Naturally I assumed it was a Yahoo issue, but got nowhere trying to look into it. Finally it occurred to me to try opening mail in Chrome and lo and behold, all my contacts were present, regardless of which view of mail I chose.

I really don't want to switch to Chrome because of mail, and although Classic View does work in FF, Classic doesn't have the autocomplete feature - which was the original issue, so it wouldn't solve my issue to revert to it.

Does anyone have any thoughts? Should I refresh FF and lose all my themes and add-ons and have to find them all again, or just uninstall and reinstall? Or is there a simpler way?

Thanks in advance you guys! (Also I tried to upload pics, but they won't load for some reason, I let it run about five minutes at least.)

So today I logged onto my pc as usual and I decide to click on Mozilla Firefox to use the search engine, but when it opened, the new tab screen had nothing on it and when I tried to search for something or go on a website through the search bar at the top, nothing happens. All it does is have the website link at the top. I've tried reinstalling Firefox and it hasn't fixed the problem, do any of you know a solution?

Im using ver 80.0.1 (64-bit) with win 10 inspite of my best efforts when opening FF Browser after a few mins, or else whenever I open a second browser page (which I used to do effortlessly) first mini-pic in bottom task bar goes blank, secondly page refuses to open and finally entire window destabilises and then disappears of to top left corner of wallpaper screen never to return, despite fact that task manager reports it as still running. Have removed Adobe Flash in case of conflicts and tried in safe-mode in case of conflicted add-ons. No luck

.....I've used This browser for a number of years now with no major issue. Now...it's acting up and I'm incredibly unhappy. I've had issues for 6 weeks +/- now. This is now an ongoing/daily issue and it's causing problems. I'm about to change browsers. (I just updated Firefox to 80.0.1 (64-bit) in the hopes this would fix the problem, it didn't.) .....I started having an issue approximately 7 weeks ago with Firefox, it was working fine before this and had for quite some time. I will be in the middle of doing something and have to pause/shut down/log off the computer and deal with something else. When I come back, sign back in, then open Firefox - the installation has changed it's format to an Eastern European language. [I, personally, don't speak or read any Eastern European languages.] I will go into settings, check the language set up is still in English American, I will click on Language Preferences, add English Canadian, then delete English Canadian, check it's back to English American. Restart the Browser and go back to what I was doing. I'm now doing this 2 to 4 times a day. It's getting old. .....What can I do, not do to fix this issue.

I have designated that opening a new tab opens Google. I would like the cursor to be in the search box on the page not in the address box. I'm sure this is new behavior for Firefox. It's annoying to start typing and then realize i'm in the address box typing in the middle of the address. How can I change it?
