A couple days ago, late, I accidentally closed my main Firefox window before a little window that I'd forgotten was there - and all my 76 tabs disappeared. 1st thing yesterday I tried - 3bar / history / recently closed tabs - but the only thing in there was the one tab from the small window. Urg! I tried that and - 3bar / history / manage - where I could see my tabs but could only restore 1 at a time - not good for 76 tabs. I read a bunch of different questions about this same issue, and tried the suggestions, including some app called scrounge, but none of these restored my tabs. Help!!!!

Yesterday I had Picture-In-Picture (shortened into pip for next mentions) working on youtube, then after one day, PIP no longer works on any of the websites, including youtube. I tried disabling and enabling pip, entering troubleshoot mode, and none of them worked. Not reinstalling because it will be annoying to log in everywhere I've had account at.

Any solution?

Starting yesterday, every youtube video I try to watch never plays or is in a constant state of buffering. It works fine in Edge, and Twitch streaming has no issues so its definitely not my internet connection.

I've already tried clearing my cache, rebooting, clearing it again and refreshing Firefox and the issue remains. Disabled adblocker as well. I am currently on version 106.0.5

I recently got a new computer, and in trying to get all my old accounts and what not synced up, I noticed that Twitter videos weren't playing for me and giving me a generic "The video could not be played", which was odd and annoying, but not the end of the world. I then went over to Twitch and got the "Your browser encountered an error while decoding the video. (Error #3000)". Meanwhile, Youtube works perfectly fine.

I tried clearing cache/cookies, tried on incognito mode in case it was an issue with one of my extensions, all to no avail - when I swapped over to Edge just to check if it was a computer issue versus a Firefox issue, both sites functioned in Edge just fine. Is there anything else I can try troubleshooting in Firefox to see what's causing this short of trying to uninstall/reinstall again?

On the device I've enabled "Remote debugging via USB". But when I click on "Enable USB Devices" button, nothing happens. I can see only "Updating..." message, then "Disabled" again.

Also no devices in the devices list, because USB Devices are disabled. "Refresh devices" does not make any changes.

Hello.

I have been unable to access product pages of a particular site, I believe, since updated to 106. The pages are viewable with Edge. https://www.officeworks.com.au/ The main page and some pages are fine but all product pages returns "Something went wrong". E.g. Office Supplies/Pencils https://www.officeworks.com.au/shop/officeworks/c/office-supplies/pencils?cm_sp=all:menu:office-supplies:::pencils I would like to know if this is Firefox's or the website's fault if so why.

Firefox 106.0.5 Windows 10 19045.2251

Hello,

Please see the attached picture. On my laptop screen (but not my second screen monitor) when opening just Firefox, there is a considerable white bar at the bottom of the browser that blocks website content. When I click on it, it brings me to another task I have open, such as Microsoft Word or my desktop.

Chrome and Edge does not have this problem, I checked. It is relegated to Firefox only.

How can I fix this?

Moving mouse quickly and hit something, mouse clicked. BAM, fonts and picture to tiny size. Cannot find anything that makes that happen to undo it. All pages that site, no other site. Closing/opening Firefox stays the same. Zoomed to max and can now see, but page is not correct proportions.

Nie połączono: potencjalne zagrożenie bezpieczeństwa

Firefox wykrył potencjalne zagrożenie bezpieczeństwa i nie wczytał „www.google.com”, ponieważ strona wymaga bezpiecznego połączenia.

Co zrobić w takim przypadku?

Witryna „www.google.com” określa poprzez HSTS (HTTP Strict Transport Security), że Firefox ma się z nią łączyć jedynie w sposób zabezpieczony. Dodanie wyjątku w celu odwiedzenia tej witryny jest niemożliwe.

Problem leży prawdopodobnie po stronie witryny i nie masz możliwości jego rozwiązania.

Jeśli połączono poprzez sieć firmową lub używasz oprogramowania antywirusowego, możesz spróbować skontaktować się z zespołem wsparcia. Możesz również powiadomić administratora strony o problemie.

Więcej informacji…

Ktoś może próbować podszywać się pod tę witrynę. Odradzamy kontynuowanie.

Witryny potwierdzają swoją tożsamość poprzez certyfikaty. Firefox nie ufa certyfikatowi witryny „www.google.com”, ponieważ jego wystawca jest nieznany, jest samopodpisany lub serwer nie przesyła właściwych certyfikatów pośrednich.

Kod błędu: SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER

Wyświetl certyfikat Nic więcej nie mogę zrobić a to strona GOogle !! nic nie mogę wyszukać ani znaleść proszę o pomoc jak to zmienić aby to działało , youtobe też nie chodzi ten sam błąd!! proszę o pomoc Krzysztof

Hi there!

I have a pretty frustrating issue with custom search engines. I use custom search engines all the time to look up words on a dictionary website. In cases where I need to look up something that is more than one word, I'm unable to use this feature because Firefox automatically adds '+' to encode spaces to the URL. since the website that I use does not know how to deal with that, I am unable to use this otherwise convenient feature in cases where my searches utilize spaces.

is this behavior adjustable in any way?

I used Windows function to close all windows to close firefox. Big mistake. I had 4 windows open and for some reason, Firefox decides to only save 3. I lost my main window with a few hundred tabs open. I realized that when I opened firefox back up and immediately wanted to restore it using Recently Closed Windows, which usually works, but not this time, because it's been 4 windows. I backed up the sessionstore-backups folder but it seems like the "upgrade" files are too large for it to handle and the recovery files don't contain the missing window.

Help?

On Windows 11, latest version, lots of addons including tree-style-tab, so empty header tabs are in the file for my pinned tabs.

I can't understand why the Windows menu shows us all the open windows, in no order whatsoever. Not chronological or alphabetical, just random placements, making finding anything a dizzying & time consuming experience, as I have to look up and down each & every time. I don't know of any other browser that gives no option as to how to sort this lis.

Currently in Windows 11 running Firefox Version 106.0.5 (64-bit).

About three days ago I noticed that I can no longer paste images from Firefox directly into messaging platforms. Didn't think too much about it, until today when I attempted to copy an image from Firefox into a graphics program (Affinity Designer) and what I got instead of the image was a string with the following text:

"C:\Users\squir\AppData\Local\Temp\1659928653877.webp"

I searched online and found that refreshing Firefox should fix the issue. It did not. Attempted to replicate in Chrome and Edge, was able to successfully copy images from both browsers. Attempted to replicate in other graphics programs: With Corel Painter, Inkscape, and Paint I was able to copy-paste from both Chrome and Edge, but not with Firefox.

Once again, I have refreshed Firefox, checked for updates in both the OS and browser, restarted the computer and the problem still persists.

Would appreciate any suggestions as to how I can fix this issue.

I love how the new tab page clearly states "Never fear losing a closed tab again.", and then when a window disappears it is followed by zero history to recover it. I have not restarted Firefox, let alone my computer since the last time the window was seen (about half an hour ago). It's not in my Alt+Tab tray hiding. I don't even remember closing the tab--though it's possible my keyboard double pressed when I was closing another window. (It's old and has a tendency to double hit keys). But now I have lost a window with at least 20 tabs open--mostly things i had yet to deal with and don't remember the URL to get back to it.

What use is my history and ability to reopen accidentally closed windows if everything just disappears from it within half an hour after the window could've been closed?

I would prefer to keep most of my browsing on Firefox, but I can't constitute that if I'm going to lose months worth of saved tabs randomly.

On or about Nov 3rd, after restarting Firefox (106.0.5 (64-bit)), I cannot get the "Bubblez" game to load. I am a long time Firefox user, but consider myself a Novice in technical terms.

The game is at https://wellgames.com/free_online/bubblez/

Thinking the game server might be down, I tried the Microsoft Edge browser, and the game plays as usual. I have not(to my knowledge) changed any settings or preferences inside Firefox, not added any new addons. I restarted Firefox in SafeMode, and the game still fails to load. It is stuck on the green circle as indicated in the attached screenshot.

Any help will be appreciated.
