I lost a session with many tabs.

Unfortunately "Restore previous session" was not available. I found a upgrade.jsonlz4 file with a date and time which would have the tabs on it. The size is larger than other ones so I figured this was the best option. I coppied this and pasted it into profiles. Renamed it sessionstore.jsonlz4... Renamed the sessionstore that was in there already to sessionstoreOLD Restarted firefox and when I click on restore previous session button I just get 2 blank tabs.

I then tried the other files which are significantly smaller but still no dice.

I tried the jefferson scrounger and it just gets stuck on "processing"

Any help would be much appreciated.

Please see screenshot of the files I had available to me and saved to a usb.

I use Zone Alarm Extreme Security to scan for viruses, etc. I just upgraded to the latest version on my Windows 8.1 PC. Almost every scan has found the Heur:trojan-Downloader.script.generic virus in the same place. The path is as follows:

C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\56zaeue3.default\extensions\staged\{b54cc223-b03f-4f2f-8cab-347ec67ab3fe}\bootstrap.js

ZA keeps treating the virus, but I want to get rid of it all together. I haven't been able to delete it because it is not visible in the folder location listed in the path. I've turned on view system/invisible files, but it is not visible. ZA tech support suggests reinstalling Firefox to see if that solves the problem, and if not, then a complete uninstall then reinstall of ZA.

I'm wondering if I can just delete the "staged" folder to get rid of the virus... The only extension I have added to Firefox is AdBlocker Ultimate, and I did that after the virus started showing up.

Has anyone else had this virus problem and if so, how did you solve it?

Hi everyone,

I do need help on the following issue: I'm logged in my mailbox with Firefox browser. The password is saved and available in the browser settings. BUT. If I try to enter it and log in from another device, the mail service says the password is wrong. I can't understand how it is possible. The browser should use one of the saved passwords for the authorization, right? Why doesn't it work outside this very browser?

MAYBE one day I changed the password in the mail service, logged in, BUT didn't refresh it in the browser settings? May the browser use some cookies, service files or something like that for authorization despite unactual password saved? If yes, then how is it possible to extract the true password out of those files?

I turned to the mail service support, but they can't help me, because I didn't enter my real name, phone number or something during registration that could help to check my identity. So the only opportunity to save my mail is to use the browser files somehow. I'm going to reinstall Windows and I will loose access to my mail forever in this case that would be very very bad.. ((( Please, help!

I have a number of bookmarked pages. When I open a new window and then select the bookmarked page i want to open, FF switches tyo another ALREADY OPEN TAB and loads the page there removing the page that was opened. EX: I use both regular FF and Private windows on my screen and switch from one to the other according to the loaded pages I am using. When I open a new tab in private windows and try to get FF to open a bookmarked page, it will switch to my open tabs under regular FF instead of opening the bookmarked page in the new private windows page it will REPLACE an open page. This happens a lot with my YouTube pages which I leave open during the day to listen to binaural beat music in the background while I am working. What's up with that? Why doesn't the bookmarked page open in a new private windows tab?

I also noticed that when I leave pages open during the day in both private and regular FF now (since the most recent update)and go back to them, I often have to reload the whole page instead of just allowing me to go directly to something on that page.

I have been dodging the most recent updates because with each new update there seems to be more and more CONTROL from your side, and less freedom on our side of the screen. Is this purposeful? If so, WHY?!!!

While using HTTPS Only Mode, and following links from my GMail Account, I often get the "not available" Firefox landing page, when actually the "ultimate" link is HTTPS. When I select the option to "Continue" from the FF Landing Page, it will land on the https site.

It appears the initial link is a 3rd party intermediary (* see below) that manages for the sender.

Intermediary Link: http://click1.e.westernjournalism.com/hmvwhljsrclzhlwdzsnvlzlvlnznmpbjmjcfnwpvswmbwss_zdbbwmsmzskrlrdszpzzz.html

How do I get around this annoyance?

Upgraded to a new Firefox version. Lost the ability to separate the Homepage from New Window behaviour. Is there no way to specify these two things separately? It seemed to be working fine when I first upgraded, but in the options it shows everything as "Blank Page", so if I want to change my homepage URLs, I have to set it to that and if I do that, it undoes the separation of the homepage and new windows and I have to go set it again in about:config...? One of my most used features was this separation of the Homepage with New Windows, gave me a lot of control.

This has been occurring on and off for several weeks and I have tried all suggested solutions I've found here so far (clear cache, history, DNS prefetch.... ). I've also noticed numerous other posts with the same error message. Any ideas??

Lately almost every time I use Firefox, RAM usage goes up to 5 GB, CPU usage goes to 100%, and my PC becomes unusable until I kill Firefox processes and wait 5 - 10 minutes for virtual RAM to be cleared out of disk and disk usage to return to normal. This is much worse since the last update, basically making Firefox unusable. Is anyone working on fixes so Firefox doesn't need 5 GB of RAM to open one simple web article?

Bear with me there's a bit of a story.

One of the apps I most use is MightyText. It allows me to send texts from my desktop computer's web browser. When FireFox automatically updated to the newest version, something didn't work right and MightyText stopped being able to connect.

My workaround was to use System Restore to go back in time so to speak. But FireFox is pretty aggressive with their updates, and eventually that stopped being a work around.

I tried to install an older version of FireFox manually but I couldn't ever get my profile to work right.

So, I've landed somewhere where FireFox has updated to the latest version, AND MightyText works just fine.

But now the problem is I cannot use any of my add-ons. Actually, I can re-fresh FireFox, and start it without any add ons. I can add all my add ons and everything works great, but if I restart my computer, FireFox will not connect to the internet (the wheel just spins) until I refresh again and wipe out all the add-ons. After doing so, all my tabs are restored, all my saved passwords, etc--and I can add back the add-ons and they will work until FireFox Crashes or I restart the computer, but then FF won't connect to the internet and around and around we go.

What's up?

I have gone to this page; www.survivalnutrition.com several times on Firefox. To download the files I put my email address in the field, and the click on Submit. Then nothing happens. So, today I went to Opera and it gave me a new page to enter my email address, and then the download links appeared in Protonmail inside of Firefox. So, I solved today's problem. I used Firefox for years to put ads on Kijiji.ca, but now it can't be done. I get the same error message for my location, even tho it's always the same address. Kijiji help suggested I clear my cache, turn off my VPN and use a different browser if the first 2 don't work. So now, I have to use Opera or Brave and the problem goes away. I would surmise that your browser is deteriorating.
