Hey guys, I've read a ton of articles, and searched a long while, for the answer to this "interesting", and it seems also rare problem?

Background: my laptop has a shit battery and needs to be plugged in almost all the time, or it dies. So when I got from home to work (and vice versa), it sometimes doesn't make it home even before dying (even on standby/sleep).

Anyways, that part is OK, I just plug it back in when I reach my destination and turn on the computer. Problem is, with the Firefox program, although it always gives me the button to Restore Previous Session, sometimes it will load (correctly) the actual previous session, but other times, it will load a "previous session" that I had open 2+ months ago!

Yah it's weird. I feel like I'm playing roulette when I restore previous session on Firefox... Will I get the actual previous session with all the tabs I really need, or will I get the tabs from 2 months ago that I have no need for...

Anyways, I can't seem to figure out 1) how it can do both (either open last session, or 2 months old session) 2) how it decides which one it will load this time

Any help would be appreciated. When it loads the 2 month old session, I lose all the tabs I was currently working on, so I'd like Firefox to always load the actual previous session, and not all these super old tabs that no longer are important for me.

Cheers!

I want to know how to sync from my phone to my computer not from my computer to my phone. My computer sync data is corrupted and there's no backup files, while my phone still has all it's files. Firefox was spiking my ram usage by 60% or more yesterday so I uninstalled and reinstall it even though the old and new was both the latest version. When I signed on again, my computer sync data would not bring back my bookmarks, passwords, add-ons, etc..

That's why I want to know how to sync from my phone to my computer, but now my phone can't even sync, if I sync it the date doesn't change at all that it was last sync today. it shows the very last time i sync on my phone which was a month ago. I tried looking up this problem and there were some people who had same problem a few years ago but they still have their files. I have zero files of backup of anything on my computer

Firefox 68.8.0-ESR in Raspbian cannot find webcam or microphone

I have a Raspberry Pi 4 running Raspbian (Buster). It has both Chromium and Firefox 68.8.0-ESR installed and has a Logitech C370 USB webcam.

Firefox cannot find either the camera or microphone on the webcam. I see only "Default Video Device" and "Default Audio Device" as choices when I try to select devices. The C370 cannot be located with the Raspbian version of Firefox.

Trying to use the webcam in https://meet.jit.si just results in a blank gray window. Trying to use the webcam in https://webcamtests.com results in a blank test window with solid cycling colors.

I have no problem using the C370 webcam using Chromium or using Firefox 71 under Ubuntu for Raspberry Pi, so I know that the hardware works fine and the Firefox could work too.

Does anyone know if I need to change any preference settings, etc under Firefox 68.8.0-ESR to make things work? Or is this a lost cause?

Since reinstalling Windows, I can no longer change my bookmarks in the order I want. Every time I try to put the bookmarks in order, the links jump back to a different position. However, not in an alphabetical order, but according to my own rules, completely confused. So I have to look for everything now. What can trigger something like that?

Recently, a user has been having issues with their Firefox profiles. They will get an error along the lines of "Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks" with an Exit and a Create New Profile button.

Things we've tried in no particular order:

  • Setting the original profile as default (temporary solution)
  • Transferring bookmarks to a new profile (temporary solution)
  • Making sure Firefox is up to date (prompted again)
  • Checking for issues in the profiles.ini values (none)

The prompt always seems to come back 24 hours after a temporary solution is put in place. Many other users had the same issue, but theirs did not seem to persist.

Any help is appreciated as I'm currently stumped on the issue and can't find much on it.

Here's a video of what's happening: https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/folders/1-s-b0U94pCqtPnV0EqOEE9pRbBopeYs5

I've tried with a fresh version of Firefox and have tried Catalina 10.15.4, Windows 10, and Windows 7.

I've contacted WIX support and they've been very unhelpful and told me to refer to browser support. The functionality works fine in Chrome.

Any help would be appreciated.

after recent updates, Firefox will not keep me signed into Yahoo mail for more than a few hours, regardless of whether the "keep me signed in for 2 weeks" box is checked. this problem started last week on my 4 Windows 10 computers at the same time, and the problem does not happen using Edge to access Yahoo mail.

for what it's worth, the url for the Edge Yahoo mail login page is https://mail.yahoo.com/d/folders/1?.src=fp

and the url for the Firefox login page begins exactly the same way but then continues with maybe another 150 characters.
