(Following on from my other thread) Keeping things separate. [other question anbout zoom levels]

Modifying the zoom works. In THIS session.

Alas I am wanting this to continue in future sessions also. As is (now) I have to go to those tabs (luckily only 3) and zoom them to 133% to get the layouts correct.

Is there a way to make that zoom constant for THAT (those) tabs?

When I scoll over text to copy or delete, the text stays transparent, no color to show what's been highlighted--how can I change this so I see a color. In Chrome, it's blue. But I don't care as long as I can see what I highlighted-- it's just about driven me away from Firefox so hoping someone can answer-- thanks

When I tried to print a few Firefox pages - one including a Google map that printed fine when I used Safari - my Brother MFC L6700DW printer would say, for about 10 seconds, that it was receiving data, and then that message would disappear without my printer printing anything. This happened with another website on Firefox as well.

Does anyone know what's going on? I normally have been able to print from Firefox.

Thanks! S

When I use the Google "Advanced Search" page in Firefox, and then click on one of the search results links to migrate to that page, I find that if I try to go back to the Google Search results page by clicking the back arrow in order to make some slight changes to what I originally had typed in, it has erased everything I had typed in, forcing me to type in all of my search terms all over again. What can I do to get it to retain the words I had typed in?

Hi folks.

I use Firefox a lot. I have about 36 windows of firefox open and some of those can have a LOT of tabs on/in them.

I have recently "evolved" to using a computer monitor. Before then it was an old flat screen TV - 1336 x 768 resolution (there about).

Now I have a 1080p monitor and things are different.

I use Node-Red (dashboards) and they took a beating with the new size.

I've set THOSE tabs to 133% magnification - and yes that isn't the correct size to emulate the TV. But I only thought of doing this a fair way down the track of trying to rearrange the layouts. (MY MISTAKE)

But I realised that at least not too long down that rabbit hole.

So that WINDOW is set to 133% zoom. But just now I tried to zoom out of another tab on that window and realised that the zoom on the other tabs is changed too.  :(

Am I missing any tricks? I know I could move THOSE tabs to a whole new window and that's that. But in the bigger picture I just want to check.

How can I recover the history that has been deleted from firefox? Already there is an article from 2020 which says to find index.dat file but there is no .dat file that i can find. I am looking for the file in the following location: AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\83ctti6r.default-release\cache2 and that location is the only one with a file named index but it is without .dat extension. If that is supposed to be the file that I am to use then which .dat file reader do I use to open it and recover the history.

I guess I don't know how to frame the problem.

I want to access a bookmark but it appears that the box on the left of the screen is full, or at least at the limit the box can display.

So far posing a question to help is futile.

All I want to do is be able to access all of my bookmarks.

Deleted all tabs and bookmarks. Firefox has been doing that for too long now. Get your act together. Too many updates. Too many times you delete everything. The hassle getting it all back, should not be needed & you refuse to sort it. Why do I think that? Because the same problem has been happening, for at least 10year.

I recently had to perform a system restore on my Laptop to resolve an issue (on recommendation from ASUS Support).

On reinstalling firefox, I began to notice that video (Youtube, Animated GIF's, etc) would lag when I would scroll my mouse down to the Windows 11 Taskbar and it would show the preview windows.

Firefox is the only application that is having this issue, and Troubleshoot Mode seems to not have the problem. However, when not in troubleshoot mode, even with all Add-On's and Themes disabled, the issue occurs.

I have tried changing Add-Ons to ones with rated performance, restarting my Laptop, ensuring all Drivers, Applications are updated, Refreshing Firefox, uninstalling & reinstalling firefox, reducing the number of open tabs and windows. I also ran sfc /scannow and DISM in case the issue was with the taskbar, with nothing being reported. Nothing appears to have worked.

Any assistance would be appreciated, as I love using Firefox and have not had any issues with it up until now.
