In Firefox, after a reboot, how can I re open my previouse sessions?

Originally I had quite a lot of open browsers & tabs. Then I needed to do a reboot, and now I've lost those previouse sessions.

Usually I just open firefox, and this opens one browser, and then all of my previous browser, and tab reopen, but this time firefox crashed, and its popup said it needed to restart, but it would re-open my previous browser and tab, but it didnt.

After following the usuall firefox help giudes, it still wouldn't re open my previouse sessions. Now if I ask it to open my previouse sessions, it just opens the recent help giudes, and not anything before the crash.

So is there a backup file of myu missing sessions that I can roll back to?

Development: Very specific problem with getting the caret position in a contenteditable div

Hello, I'm a web developer. I'm using the Firefox Developer Edition and currently working on a project that requires caret manipulation. I have this function right here that fetches the caret's client rect: ``` function getCaretRect(): DOMRect | null {

 const sel = window.getSelection()
 if (!sel || sel.rangeCount === 0) return null
 const range = sel.getRangeAt(0)
 const rects = range.getClientRects()
 if (rects.length === 0) return null
 return rects[0]

} ``` Here is where the issue arises. Suppose I have a contenteditable div with two line breaks (no new lines), and the second line is smaller than the first one. If the caret is positioned somewhere that is further than the end of the second line, and I press the down arrow key, then left, for some reason the caret rect I get has all values set to zero, like this: `{ x: 0, y: 0, width: 0, height: 0, top: 0, right: 0, bottom: 0, left: 0 }` I will add an image to explain further.

I don't have this issue on Chromium based browsers, but cross browser support is important for me.

There is one more issue to do with caret manipulation which is how contenteditable divs are handled. On a Chromium based browser, if I have a parent div that's contenteditable, then another div that's not contenteditable (contenteditable="false" explicitly), then two children divs which are both contenteditable (or more), I can navigate through the divs freely using the arrow keys and focus is managed better alongside event handlers. This is not present on Firefox, however.

If this is not the right place to ask for help then please guide me where is more suitable.

Hi,

my firefox does not load any webpage no matter what Firefox profile I am using (created a new one for tests). I have a Win10 pc with Avast and Comodo installed, the system with the mentioned software and multiple different Firefox profiles was running since several years without problems.

A month ago I had the same issue with Firefox 126, which I guess was caused by a windows update, where I had trouble getting it installed. But after this (I had to increase the system reserved partition) Firefox was running without any problmes like before ...

Now no pages kan be load and always the crash monitor pops up.

When pasting text into Outlook Online the text removes the preceding space. A minor inconvenience but it does mean I have to double space before pasting.

Also after pasting text I get a paste box that locks out any controls unless I click out of it or press ESC. (image below)

Text being copied from inside Outlook doesn't pop up the box.

This problem is only happening with Firefox as using a different browser (i.e. chrome at office) does not do either of the problems. Anyway to fix either option?

For over a year, I've used my Firefox browser to read the Kindle books. In the top right corner there should be six icons representing 1. Table of contents 2. Search 3. Reader settings (size of font and one or two columns) 4. Annotations 5. Add bookmark 6. Reader menu - this should have five dropdown items including "go to page" which is missing. It now only displays the first and the last, and I want to use "go to page" which is missing.

Another failure of going to the right page - when I log into Firefox on my desktop after browsing Kindle on my Kindle reader, Firefox is meant to go automatically to where I have been reading on the table. Instead it goes to the beginning of the book. That looks like the same problem - failure to go to the right page.

It works fine on Opera but I have to look up my passwords and type in the URL, whereas my Firefox browser shows Kindle along the top, and my password manager works for Firefox. So Opera is very inconvenient.

I guessed that my version of Firefox has become corrupted, but couldn't find how to re-install it.

Hello Mozilla community,

I'm encountering a perplexing issue with Mozilla Firefox that I hope someone here can shed some light on. Whenever I set Mozilla Firefox as my default browser, I experience difficulties accessing my website. The site continuously buffers but never fully loads, leaving me unable to view its content.

However, when I switch to a different browser as my default, such as Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge, the website loads without any issues moreover my website is related to Picoworker which runs smoothly on other browsers (Screenshot is also attached). This leads me to believe that the problem might be specific to Mozilla Firefox.

I've tried troubleshooting by clearing the browser cache, disabling extensions, and even reinstalling Firefox, but the problem persists. I've also checked for any errors in the browser console, but nothing seems out of the ordinary.

Could there be any compatibility issues between my website and Mozilla Firefox that are causing this problem? Or is there something else I should investigate to resolve this issue?

Any insights or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your assistance!

I'm very frustrated being a novice PC user! I Suspect a PC repair Co., that has had remote access to my PC in the past of some how accessing my Private network of 7 device's and making sure that some where on my network any of several app's they have used before to take remote access of my PC! I first noticed a problem after this co. initially set up my network. I would be on my PC and see the Any desk app soft ware. So I did uninstall the any desk app where ever I saw it on my network. This co. would call me and tell me to be sure and take advantage of their monthly tune up. Keep in mind I was scared into purchasing 3 year support package. I turned on my PC today,after using Google as my default Browser for a long time. I decided to try Firefox I was very disappointed to see that Firefox had been set up and the third bookmark was something called Take Remote. This Co. Is still in Business and my account is active. In my opinion I believe that all HACKER'S should have their hand's CUT OFF. Again I am a novice user, But for some one who use's their knowledge and their Company to prey on people like me, There Should be consequence's!!! I Would Greatly Appreciate any help or Advice you could help me with!

I recently installed Firefox and I keep getting crash notices, even when it is not open/running...

I have verified this through the task manager...Nothing named Firefox or Mozilla is running...

I don't have this issue with either Brave or Chrome, and I have, and keep updated ESET software, so I KNOW this is a Firefox issue...

Unless this issue can be corrected, I will have no choice but to uninstall it, as I don't need software that crashes even when it is not being used...
