Possible bug: I cannot stop Firefox from restoring sessions after restarting computer. Restore previous session is not checked in Settings, browser.sessionstore.resuming_after_os_restart is false, and browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash is false as well. Ubuntu 20.04, Firefox 91.0.2, only add-on is TreeStyleTabs, but this behavior displays with add-ons disabled.

I am getting the "Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue" error on websites that are clearly not security threats. Examples are twitch.tv, youtube.com, gmail.com and since I use duckduckgo, I cant even search something because it redirects me to the website duckduckgo.com/(whatever i searched), which also creates the error. I don't believe it is a network error because it allows me to visit all of these websites when I am using the chrome browser. Sometimes when I get the error, it has the yellow border around the screen so I can click on advanced options and click "go to the website anyways", and sometimes that option is not there. Also, the error will happen on and off for some websites. For example, yesterday I wasn't able to access gmail.com because the glitch was happening on it, but today I am able to visit the site just fine.

Hi, when I use Firefox on this machine, the bookmark sync doesn't work as expected. Instead of maintaining the order of the other devices' bookmark toolbar, it is ordering the non-folder bookmarks before the foldered bookmarks. How can I make it so the bookmark toolbar is the same across all devices? I have tried deleted places.sqlite and backupbookmarks folder.

OS: Debian 11

Thank you!

Managing profiles: My Firefox since rel 89.0 crashes several times A DAY. The last time it crashed 6 times in a row then WIPED out my copy and gave me a new copy, BLANK of everything. I am no rookie to Firefox as my first version was 1.0 when I converted from Netscape Navigator long ago. The rub is PROFILES. I have too many to manage now and need to get rid of some but Moz:lla in their infinite wisdom does not put a date, what was the LAST one.... and one has to search to find the LAST profile that has your latest modification, data, etc. I am fearsome in deleting any as they do not seem to be in any order and I get a SERVE warning when trying to delete. Since the new releases crashes all the time, to do critical work I have to resort to UGH, "EDGE' until Moz://a gets a solid release and hopefully STOP TRYING TO COPY EDGE AND CHROME.

Any advise will be appreciated. [except advise to use EDGE or CHROME].

Since couple of months ago, FF started to ask for master password after 30 minutes of inactivity. I have auto-refresh for some tabs which use Basic Authentication. After 30min those tabs stops refreshing and FF opens multiple (5) dialogs for master password. This secondary layer of security is pretty annoying as I have my computer secured on multiple levels by multiple factors already. I am getting very annoyed by this, is there any way to disable this "feature"? I have security.ask_for_password = 0 and signon.masterPasswordReprompt.timeout_ms = 0 but it keeps asking (now bit less often but still does). I just want master password entered once when I start the session and keep it open until I quit the browser.

My computer crashed today. On restart, Firefox looks different. I'm sure I had a theme or add on installed prior to the crash. But I don't have any memory of what it was. Is there a history I can look at for that? If so, how do I access it? Thanks.

After FF 91 installed when I go to something like the Watch page on Facebook, there is no border around content to define it and as a result (?) on my videos the controls such as the Audio button is nearly invisible off to the side of the content. While I can see a symbol there is nothing to click on that is visible but clicking above the audio symbol on pure white will turn the audio for the video on. There is no slider visible. If I click on a video to make it larger there is not minimize button in the upper left like there used to be. This is entirely broken. I don't want to downgrade as it is my understanding I would have to create a new account and then try to resync my other devices. I will have to abandon FF if this isn't fixed or until I learn how to fix this. I tried turning strict privacy off to no avail and changing the them to no effect.

Ich weiß nicht warum Mozillia uns unbedingt Proton aufzwingen möchte, warum kann man nicht 2 gleisig fahren. Ich finde diese Oberfläche sehr störend. Nach dem update auf Firefox 91 ist der Abstand zwischen den Lesezeichen wieder vergrößert, obwoh ich alle Einstellungmit Proton in der config deaktiviert habe.

Gibt es eine Möglichkeit, die auch für "nichtprogrammierer" umzusetzen ist, den "alten Zustand" wieder herzustellen oder zwingt uns Mozilla nach jahrerlanger zufriedenheit einen neuen Browser zu suchen?

I am using FF 64 bit, latest version (91), on Win8.1. Out of nowhere, FF has ceased to load any pages but mozilla's own pages like the help page I'm writing on. I've no themes installed and 2 windows open with approx. 155 tabs. I've tried turning of hardware acceleration, checked for proxies, updated FF, restarted FF, checked the Windows firewall (all permissions granted) and avast antivirus (ditto), checked for malware with avast antivirus - but all to no avail.

I am at a loss with this problem and kindly ask for advice. Januario
