I'm running Firefox 83.0 on Windows 10. In Outlook (Office 365) if I right click in a text field, wanting to switch the language for proofing the text, there is no Language item on the menu (see image). I have the English and French dictionaries and language packs installed. It shows up in other applications (e.g. this website), but not in Outlook. This used to work...

Before shutting down Firefox I deleted history/cache/passwords etc from the past day

I do this all the time but since I had restore previous tabs selected they always get restored when I start up again

However this time they weren't restored when I restarted

Without closing Firefox I navigated to the sessionstore-backups folder to see what was there but the files were only 2KB - much too small for the number of tabs.

So I installed ShadowExplorer & Shadowcopyview to see if I could recover older versions I was able to locate jsonlz4 files from a few days ago that were around 11000KB in size so I assumed they would have most of my tabs

However when trying to use the files nothing happens - I tried 2 different steps that I read here had worked for others

1 - Renaming previous.jsonlz4 to sessionstore.jsonlz4 , moving to the profile folder (deleting the old one first) and restarting FF

2 - Deleting sessionstore.jsonlz4 and copying the recovered previous.jsonlz4 / recovery.baklz4 /recovery.jsonlz4 / upgrade.jsonlz4-20201014125134 files to the sessionstore-backups folder and restarting FF

I also repeated the steps after creating a separate profile

None of these worked so I tried examining the jsonlz4 files using https://www.jeffersonscher.com/res/scrounger.html but I got an error message 'Session history file contents could not be read?'

Now I've previously used recovered Jsonlz4 files to restore tabs with no issues but this time they won't work

I read here https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1189759 that updates may cause compatibility issues and the upgrade.jsonlz4-20201014125134 file indicates they was a recent update

The recovered file sizes indicate they contain data so I want to know how I can recover it - if not through FF then through some other software

I realise that Firefox uses up a lot of Memory (particularly as it tries to run each Tab separately). However, my Firefox seems to keep increasing its usage!

I can start with a number of Tabs open & (after refreshing each Tab - to ensure it is "lice" & "active") I will get (according to Windows Task Manager) about 1,300MB in use.

Without opening up any more Tabs & without trying to run any Web-Based Videos, over a period of a few hours it will increase & increase & increase - perhaps getting up to 4,000MB!

I've cross checked with "about:performance" (to open FF's own Task Manager), to show the individual Tab usage, & that NEVER totals up to anywhere near the figures shown by the Windows Task Manager!!

Obviously, my FF is fully up to date!

Any comments!

I use FireFox exclusively and employ CC Cleaner to keep internet cache sizes manageable and to clear cookies. When over I run CC Cleaner in addition to the file deletions from FireFox there are also files being deleted from MS Edge and Chromium. How is this possible if I never use either of those browsers? How do I prevent the MS browsers from attaching themselves to FF and in essence overriding my quest for privacy?

Okay I just uploaded the new version of firefox I think 83, and every time I restart my computer or anything like that I have to re-log back into EVERYTHING. All my google accounts everything that require a password. It has for the most part my passwords saved but it i a huge hassle especially since I work from home it eats up a lot of time.

It doesn't save my tabs I had left open either. I can get them back when I go to sync tabs but I have to do it one at a time. It literally takes me back to the "Important News: Changes to your Firefox" page every time and its been days and its super frustrating. If I have to do this every time I will have to switch over to chrome which would be a bummer. I have tried fixing it in my preferences section of firefox and made sure everything is lining up there so it should be saving my info but no matter what I do it just takes me back to that page along with my ad blocker and honey page as if it was my first time signing in

Please help I can't do this every time I log in

New update includes a dialog box that will pop up on each and every download (like you just fell off the turnip truck and you forgot where your download folder is located):

"Locating and Installing Your Download

When your download is complete please use the instructions below to begin the installation of your download or locate your downloaded files on your computer.

Firefox

  • Click the down arrow in the top right of the browser Windows Users - Click the small image of the folder next to your download
  • Mac Users - Click the small image of the magnifying glass next to your download.

The folder that contains your download will now be open."

This my first ever whatever this is supposed to be, created an account to ask a question to which I will get no answer for... user friendly=less clicks, not more... Get rid of it, please... or at least the common courtesy of a toggle switch.

Just recently I've been unable to chat in YouTube channels. This started a couple of weeks ago. If I use Microsoft Edge, I have no problem chatting on the same page I can't with Firefox. When I try to chat, I get a message, "Error, try again." I tried this with another PC of mine that has the most recent version of Firefox on it and the same thing happens. I have another PC with an earlier version of Firefox on it, Ver 82.0.3 and have no problem chatting with that version. So, I can only conclude that there was something that happened with an update that blocks chatting.

Hello I had Firefox version 81 and after installing version 82 in a new install on a new hard drive, I cannot change the color of my tabs anymore.

I should see white tabs for the current tab but no longer. Question: Is this been blocked now?

I see instead a thin blue color strip along the top of the tab and the rest is grey. This shows up without any userChrome file.

about:support shows my Profile. vwy0y5ix.default-release I also have under the Profile folder this: jcueuz5y.default

Question: Why 2 profiles now as I had only one before? See attachments.

I put the userChrome.css file here in the Chrome folder: C:\Users\David\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\vwy0y5ix.default-release

What it contains:

  1. nav-bar { -moz-box-ordinal-group: 1 !important; }
  2. PersonalToolbar { -moz-box-ordinal-group: 2 !important; }
  3. TabsToolbar { -moz-box-ordinal-group: 3 !important; }

.tab-background:not([selected]) {

   background-color: #E3E0DB !important;

}

.tab-background[selected="true"] {

   background-color: white!important;

There was some json file, from which you could get tabs. I tried it last time and it didn't work. Also firefox wasn't even running at that time and previously i had all windows and tabs... Are you kidding me???

I have used Firefox and Thunderbird for several years but now I am unable to use Yahoo because of ?Thunderbird being unsecure? So anyway I can't get signed in anymore. I have read everything I can find on the web sites about how to log in but as I read and follow directions I always get to a critical spot where a function/icon/option/ is not available to me. So I'm dead in the water again. I am using Firefox version 83 and Thunderbird version 78, the latest downloads and Windows 10. I guess I'm not very smart on the computer but my question is 'can anybody give me precise instructions how to comply with the Yahoo security snafu? Right now I am using Yahoo until I can find out something about Thunderbird and I hate Yahoo. Secondly is Mozilla fixing the Thunderbird program so it will seamlessly log in?

Any help will be appreciated. My email address is: gaylon.smith@sbcglobal.net

The Tree Style Tab sidebar keeps coming back. It's there every time I restart Firefox. It's there when I install Firefox on a new build. It just cannot be turned off permanently, no matter how many times I click on the X to close it.

It has become an annoyance to have to get rid of it every time I use Firefox. I have searched the forum and looked through the settings many times. There must be some way to disable the sidebar once it has been enabled. If so, what is it?
