Firefox became unresponsive and I closed the program. Upon reopening it, I could not restore my previous session like I normally can. This only happened a few minutes ago.

I've have two files that I found in the Firefox folder sessionstore-backups (BAKLZ4 file and JSONLZ4 file) if you need them.

Hello Community,

i am currently using Firefox with the english and german language pack enabled. This way it displays the user-interface in german. I think that this eventually comes somehow from the system preferences..

if i deactivate the german language pack the user interface is in english - that is what i really want. but with a slight twist.. i don't like the currency, date and time formats. (it switches to the PM/AM and Month/Day/Year and so on..)

So i would like to combine the German currency, date and time formats with the english user-interface language. is this possible?

in my Operating System (Kubuntu 17.10) i have done this mix successfully. - so in theory the system already knows what i want...

any ideas on this are greatly appreciated.

sunny greetings stefan

Firefox does not allow meany longer to connect to Yahoo mail.

What happens is this. I try to connect but nothing happens. I am stuck on the login page, No further info given.

I tried with other Browsers and there are no problems.

I have noticed years ago that Firefox 'doesn't like' Yahoo but up until now it has still been possible to connect.

Things were working fine with 57, I kept putting off the notices to upgrade because I knew something would go kerflooey (and it did!) and now Firefox is:

1) very slow to start 2) once it starts and opens, it can take another 30 seconds for the homepage (google) to render 3) clicking on a new tab takes forever for the homepage to render

I tried the fix suggested in a similar post (options > privacy & security > check 'Prevent accessibility services from accessing your browser' but it didn't improve things. I've been using the New Tab Homepage 0.6.2 add-on from Ben Basson without any problems (though he notes bug 1411465 reported to Firefox) but disabling this add-on didn't improve things. Any fixes to these problems???

Also, I've heard there is still regular Firefox that is available for organizations, maybe this would be a good fix over Quantum, can you give the download link to that if it's available?

Liebes Mozilla-Team, ich schreibe auf Deutsch, da Muttersprache. In case of misunderstanding please contact me. Bis vor wenigen Monaten erschien automatisch bei Firefox-Start der Hinweis "letzte Sitzung wiederherstellen" mit allen zuletzt geöffneten Seiten. Das hab ich nun nicht mehr. Das Help-Tool ist leider unzureichend. Erstens scheint dieser Button https://support.mozilla.org/de/kb/sitzungswiederherstellung#w_wenn-sie-azvorherige-sitzung-wiederherstellenay-aus-dem-firefox-menak-wachlen in meiner Menüleiste nicht auf. Zudem habe ich bereits in meinen Einstellungen schrittweise nach Hilfetool alles korrekt vorgenommen. Hat es etwas mit anderen Einstellungen zu tun? Wo ich versehentlich etwas angehakt habe und es deshalb die Wiederherstellung sperrt? Bitte um Hilfe. DANKE.

G'day Helpdesk,

I am stumped why I can not stop the Google Privacy reminder?

I have completed the Privacy Reminder when logged into Gmail, to ensure my settings are saved (on multiple Newly built Windows devices).

I have downloaded the Google advertisement-opt-out option.

I don't want to remain logged into Google when browsing for more privacy.

When I restart Firefox, the best browser in the world. I am again asked to review Google Privacy reminder.


I would love to fix this, can you offer an insight please. Thank you in advance and regards.

I turned on my computer this morning and opened up a newly updated Firefox, only to have all of my bookmarks gone. It was as if I had just installed the browser. There is no back-up available that I could find either. I desperately need to get these back as I have several pages saved from years back. I included an image of my lack of bookmarks as well for reference.

Frustrated to the n-th degree again - On my new system running W10, I go to Firefox "Library" - "import and backup" - "Import bookmarks from html" - then I navigate to the flash drive folder which holds an html file named "bookmarks" that got there by using Firefox's "export to html" on my old W7 system - I then select the "bookmarks" html file on the flash drive and click on the open button - Nothing happens! Nothing happens!! Where am I failing?

To be honest I have recently built a new PC and the problem I describe transferred from my 10 year old PC Most of my Firefox Quantum 59.0.2 (64-bit) Bookmark icons are grey round circles (all the same). So my question is exactly what is causing this to happen and how can I fix this please, it's driving me nuts !!!!!

Please see the attached .png file.

Can the cause be a Computer Virus ? (I have always relied upon Kaspersky Internet Security 2018) with daily updates. Or perhaps some form of Malware not picked up by my Antivirus scanner.

Starting today facebook shows all attachments sent and received in chat as "attachment unavailable" and before anyone says to check privacy settings, if you hard refresh the page it'll show the attachments you've sent and others have sent. Anything new you attach will still show "attachment unavailable" as will anything anyone else sends.

I've restarted, cleared cookies and cache, killed all the tabs and started over, checked for updates to FF... nothing seems to fix it.

Works fine in Chrome, shows everything just fine without requiring a refresh. I'm stumped.
