I lost over 700 tabs yesterday when FF Crashed. When it was re-opened, I only had one Tab and none of my pinned tabs were there and all the other tabs were gone. All Tabs Helper had all but about 30-40 tabs suspended and I had opened and closed FF many times in the past and it had always reopened the complete list of Tabs with all but the pinned tabs suspended. I really don't want to go into history and tell it to open all the tabs from the last month, this is definitely asking for trouble. I am posting this from EDGE so as not to screw up any chances of a full recovery if possible. Thanks, Ed

Please can someone tell me how to prevent Firefox from printing blocks of background colour around text when printing while in High Contrast mode (ie with the 'Override the colours specified by the page with your selections above' option set to 'Always' or 'Only with High Contrast themes'). It is wasting a lot of ink and makes it difficult to read the printed page. I just want it to print the text, not the background colour from my display settings. The 'Print background (colour and images)' option is off.

Back several versions ago, a Firefox update moved tabs to the top of the screen, just below the header and above everything else. For me, this is totally counter-intuitive. So I restored the older version of FF and disabled updates. Well now we're at the point where some pages aren't working and I'm being forced to update (v82). And of course, the problem has returned.

Is there any way to return the tabs to a position below the address bar and above the page itself?

And while I'm at it, is there a way to customize the looks of the tabs so that they once again look like the file folder tabs that they once did with the curved top corners? For me, this made them more easily identifiable as tabs.

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

Hello, This morning when I started Firefox, it uploaded and installed itself to the current level. I run Windows 7. Firefox reopened with the advertisement about Mozilla VPN. IT CLEARLY displayed the OS Software levels it would support for the VPN, including but not limited to Windows/XP , 7, 8, and 10 . When I started the offer purchase it took me to the DOWNLOAD page which offers WINDOWS 10 download ONLY. Will this WINDOWS 10 download work with my Windows 7 ?? Confused here !

Hi,

Is there a way of completely blocking Google and only allowing them to snoop on an ad-hoc basis? I would like to be prompted every time Google wants to sneak in with a yes/no.

I regularly purge cookies and notice Google are regularly setting cookies on my computer despite my not using Google or Youtube. I want total control over this company's intrusion into my privacy. I only use firefox/Duckduckgo when online.

Thank you

Michael

Hi All,

Several times I've cleared my cache and managed to also delete ALL of my logins. I most certainly do uncheck the box for "Cookies and Site Data", leaving only "Cached Web Content" checked and it still deletes all info. Also whenever I go back in that page, both are (again) checked.

What am I doing wrong?

Is there a way in "about:config" to default this area to "Cached Web Content" only?

I did a System Restore and when it completed I clicked on the Firefox Icon to get back online. When I did it said that the program had been moved. I had to re-download Firefox and of course all of my previous bookmarks were gone. I have tried to complete the steps to recover them but nothing I'm doing is working. Can you please help. I do have an "Old Firefox Data" Folder on my desktop. I have alot of bookmarks ranging from current to a long time ago and would like to know how to retrieve them. Thank you.
