After clicking on Delete cookies and Cache for only ONE particular website, in Cookies and Site Data, Manage Data then closing Firefox and restarting it, it lost ALL of my Tabs, previous browsing session history and my Bookmarks Setting which was pinned on the left side of the screen and the Menu Bar! I tried Refreshing Firefox but that didn't help. Under Startup, I had the box selected to Restore Previous Session. What's going on with Firefox?? This is especially frustrating because I don't have time to waste trying to fix Firefox---especially while simply trying to fix a problem with one website which as made thing worse.

Why should this problem occur and how can I get all of my previous settings back shortly and make then stay?

Hello. I am a developer and I'm trying to whitelist a website I'm currently working on from tracking protection in order to prevent blocking of xhr requests. The problem is that, although I have specifically disabled tracking protection for the domain, the resources are still blocked after refreshing tabs. Looking at the exceptions list I can see that it features https://client.enterprise but the intended domain is http, without any encryption. Could that cause the issue?

I use Xubuntu OS and installed Firefox from there many 4 months ago on this my new laptop, from Ubuntu repos. I now do not know what version it was.

About a month ago I noticed that every time I closed down the computer I saw a flashing image of what appeared to be a message from Firefox. It disappeared before I could read what it was about.

I uninstalled Firefox totally yesterday by purging the system, deleting the folders/files in /etc and /usr relating to it. I downloaded it from repos and installed it again However, the flashing image still appears every time I close down.

I decided to video the close down to pause it and see what this message was about. It was as I said in the subject above. I found two crash reports in about:crashes and have submitted them.

Please tell me how to stop this repeating message.

Also, when uninstalling Firefox I saved the logins and passwords but was unable to use the resulting csv to recover them. Is there a better way than manually?

I have a whole slew of tabs I use daily and Firefox is set to reload them whenever I restart Firefox. Now with version 78 it tells me it has to reinstall and won't keep my tabs, in other words I have to waste time setting all 200 of them up again. Several times a day it nags me to update and there is no option to tell it to Shut Up. If Firefox can't be bothered to provide smoother upgrades, I can't be bothered to upgrade.

I want to enable two-factor authentication for my Firefox account. I did the standard steps at accounts.firefox.com. Everything seems to work except that the codes generated by Google Authenticator aren't accepted by accounts.firefox.com. I then tried Microsoft authenticator, with the same result. Then Authy, again same result.

Here are my steps. > Google Authenticator already installed on phone. It works with my Google account. > I used Mozilla Firefox to log-in at accounts.firefox.com on my laptop Steps at firefox.com: log-in > Click to enable two-step authentication > Click Add account on Google authenticator (on my phone) > Scan the QR code showing on laptop screen > Google Authenticator adds the account and displays a 6-digit code > Enter the code at accounts.firefox.com

Everything works except the last step. Accounts.firefox.com rejects the code every time. Same for every other authenticator app I tried.

For many years now with FireFox the ability to get to the Home Page of any and all YouTube Channels has been made non-existent. There's no way to do that because of the Web-coding that FIreFox has implemented. There's also another issue involving YouTube; that issue is the Point of Entry of Commenting. When you go below Description of Video, there should be a Comment Entry Block. In FireFox that does not exist. These two issues need to be address and fixed. If you think that I am not telling you the truth, use FireFox and on another PC with Chrome, Chromium, Brave, and any other. You will see what I am talking about. This is the best way to allow people to actually see for themselves the problems. Please fix this issue as soon as possible. Thank You, KLC

Saving a Bookmark to a folder does not appear to work any longer this has been the case for several months. If you try to save a bookmark to a folder, then check the folder, the bookmark is not there, if you do a search the bookmark is found but its location cannot be seen, the only way to get around this problem is to save the bookmark to the bottom of the general list and then drag it to the folder you want. Would be good if this could be fixed.
