I had like over 100 tabs lol but I had a Windows Update. My laptop froze while I had Firefox open. After the laptop restarted, I realized the new patches didn't get applied before Windows started up again, so after Windows started back up, (I did not open Firefox at all during this cycle) I went to Windows Update and hit Restart to apply the updates. After the updates got patched in and Windows restarted, I went to open Firefox and it just opens the home page.

I do have Restore Previous Session upon Startup checkmarked.

Tried restoring from the 3 line Menu button but the Restore option is not there.

Did try under History in the Menu bar but my Recently Closed Windows and Recently Closed Tabs are greyed out.

Tried the Library icon's Recently Closed Windows and Recently Closed Tabs within History and they both show up as (Empty)

Went to my Profile's folder into the sessionstore-backups folder and there's only 2 small 44kb files there both that were created when I started Firefox up: recovery.baklz4 and recovery.jsonlz4 ... the sessionstore-backups folder itself was also created when I started up Firefox after my Windows Update.

I read thru stuff like https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1204253 I do not have any files that have previous.jsonlz4 or upgrade.jsonlz4 like mentioned in my sessionstore-backups folder... not sure if they may be somewhere else like in 1 of the Temp folders somewhere else in Windows folder.

If I uninstall last Windows Updates, would it revert my Firefox Profiles folder to what it previous was or does Uninstalling last Windows Updates have no effect on the Firefox folder?

I subscribe to a number of separate "Things" hosted by a single company (silly example) http://stuffstuff.co.uk. My user name for each of the separate things is "mr-silly@silly.co.uk" and the only thing that differentiates them is that each "Thing" requires a different password.

Thing 1 Username: mr-silly@silly.co.uk Password: 1sillything Thing 2 Username: mr-silly@silly.co.uk Password: 2anothersillything Thing 3 Username: mr-silly@silly.co.uk Password: 3moresillything

and so on...

Unfortunately this Lockwise thing will not permit this to happen, presenting the following stupid message.

"An entry for http://stuffstuff.co.uk with that username already exists. Go to existing entry?"

How do I get around this Lockwise silliness?

The email address is required as the user name by the company.

Don't suggest having a different email address for each user name, that is not possible.

While the question maybe posed in a silly manner  :-) I am quite serious about the problem. Thanks Ax

I've used Firefox for several years. Up until recently, anytime I would type the beginning of a heavily visited site, I could simply hit enter and it would autocomplete the website for me. It doesn't do that anymore, and I either have to type out the entire website, click it in the 'suggestions' that drop down, or click it in my bookmarks. I used to be able to type 'gmai' and hit enter to go to gmail, now it just searches 'gmai' on Google. Is there some setting I'm missing? This is extremely frustrating.

When I try to access [https://www.surinenglish.com/] I got the following:

Forbidden. You don't have permission to access / on this server. Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request. It has worked fine on this system and this browser before and still works fine in Vivaldi. No changes in AV software and no improvement when all extensions disabled. What could be causing it in FF (latest stable, Win 10)?

Hi,

So the default paper size for the printer keeps on defaulting to letter. When we require A4.

In previous versions this could be fixed by changing paper_data to 9.

However on the latest version of Firefox this option is no longer there. Instead it is replaced with print_paper_id. I have tried different values and this will not work.

Any ideas on how we can get this to default to A4 as the paper size?

Thanks.

I BELIEVE, but am not certain, the above described subject and topic are instrumental to the issue I am having. I like to stream a Canadian sports site called Sporstnet Now. Up until a few weeks / months ago every time I clicked to open that site the streaming started automatically. Now that is not happening on a regular basis. Typically when I click on the website it now does not start automatically. To resolve this I can "sign out" and then sign in using my login credentials. This is obviously a time waster. Once I am signed in again, I might be able to stop the streaming and log back in automatically for the next few hours, but certainly by the next morning the streaming does not start automatically and I need to go through the login process described above. There must be a setting somewhere to allow the automatic streaming to start even if I have not visited that website in the last 2 - 3 days. Any help? suggestions? thoughts? Thank you.

Im trying to get browser notifications to show up on top of a game im running but they never appear while focused in the other window (running in borderless fullscreen).

i tried changing focus assist options in win10 as suggested somewhere but i dont think i had that on in the first place, and it didnt fix the issue.

Also, any way to turn off the transparency on the notification popup would be a cherry on top

The identity of this web site or the integrity of this connection cannot be verified

Popups appears many times and can be eliminated by clicking X (close) on the message. Usually about 10-20 of these appear behind the browser page. I do not see the message until I close the browser. I have tried every suggestion from many sources and can not rid the problem.

One suggestion was to change the wording on Firefox Certificate Manager deleting BUILTIN OBJECT TOKEN. I can not find access to try this method.

I have tried to delete certificates that look suspicious and they reload when you open the Fire Fox Browser.

All of the certificate popups are from sites I do not visit.

This just started happening last week: every time I sign into my bank, I'm required to be texted a security code to continue with my banking. It only happens on FireFox, not in Chrome, so it's a browser issue, not the bank. It's so annoying! Any help would be appreciated.

Aloha from Hawaii, I have a Windows 10 desktop computer. Many of the passwords i have stored are either computer generated or are a few of my own variables. Recently I had trouble logging in to Netflix. I called and spoke to different techies who advised me after 2 hours of "troubleshooting" to erase all my cookies "temporarily" after telling me that other clients reported similar log in trouble with clients who had FIREFOX browsers. They suggested after erasing my cookies to re=enter Netflix via my Microsoft browser, and that I could resume Firefox afterwords. We tried that, and it still didn't work. The next day I tried it again to no avail and finally reset the settings to save cookies as needed. HOWEVER, I began to discover over a period of several days that each and every one of my accounts that I use regularly with the exception of one..that stores my password in its account (plus I remember it) still works. With every other account I had tried so many times to enter with either old passwords OR new ones..and after repeated attempts over a period of time...discovered that the computer would NOT respond to "saved or remember password" instructions..and I would be told that I needed a temporary code to re enter password to reset or create a new passwd. i used every variation on Google to create new ones, use old ones and got the same dead end. Then I found that other accounts had stopped "remembering' passwords that were "memorized"..and I had to go thru the same process with them. Even in the rare occasion that I got into my gmail account, that only worked once. The next time i logged in i had to request a phone in code. Kindly advise me what is happening. Is it settings, cookies, or something else? THANKyou for your support. Aloha from Hawaii. P.S. I am wondering too if Google, which never seems to recognize my "location" or computer "thinks" i am somewhere else than my actual location in Molokai, Hawaii. Also, I don't use Google as a search engine. I use Duck Duck go, if that makes a difference. I only keep Google because i still have a gmail email account.

I suspect this is a Firefox browser issue. I worked with Outlook technical support and when I open outlook as a stand alone app., I don't have the problem. Also, my pc/laptop has two accounts on it. One for me as an administrator and one for my wife as a user. When I'm in my wife's account, I don't have this problem. Same software browser, etc.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
