Greetings, recently firefox 96.0.2 crashed running on windows 10. I had installed it long ago and I had tabs that were were active and I had installed 7 add-ons (extension). when I opened firefox after crash, I discovered 1 - no tabs existed, 2 - settings were as though it was a fresh install (I had to configure settings all over again) 3 - and no extensions I looked for restore under menu bar (the 3 stacked up lines) so far I have been unable to restore my old tabs and extension etc

I hope there is method to bring tabs back (most important). I tried to copy last month history with no success. Thank you for your help in advance. -Sed

Ever since I updated to Firefox 96, I have been receiving the error message "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site." at times. Refreshing does help. This did not seem to happen with Firefox 95. I am currently on Firefox 96.0.2. I tried restarting the computer, tried refreshing Firefox, tried disabling hardware acceleration, etc., and the issue still persists.

I have been a "light theme" user for 15+ years. Since updating to 96.0 today, a dark mode spreading across Firefox has been forced onto me, including:

  • New tab background
  • Background of any tab waiting to load a page
  • Google/Youtube background
  • Settings/add-ons/password menu backgrounds
  • Automatic username/password drop-down background
  • Background of the little box that appears on the bottom-left (the one which shows the URL when you mouse over a link)

I am unhappy with this and wish to have my usual theme back. Can anyone please assist?

(In addition, there is some sort of white border around the current tab, which I do not like)

I accessed their Spamhaus Project blocklist yet upon entering my IP addresses the response was: 'No Issues'.

Any advice? Cheers

I accidentally enabled an add-on that basically disables firefox as a search engine and is just, over all, a pain. I've tried removing and disabling it but it always comes back. I looked up how to do it and got an extremely outdated answer. I am using 96.0.2. Thanks.

I restored Firefox, which left a folder named "Old Firefox Data" on my desktop.

How do I delete it? I can't!

Even if I remove the "read only" property and remove the "deny delete" setting, the damn thing won't go away!

How.Do.I.Kill.The.Folder???

I don't seem to remember Chrome or even Edge making the decision to clutter my Desktop indefinitely for no reason at all...
