The "restore previous session" option is no longer in the History section. All I can restore is individual pages. I often have a lot of tabs open, and twice now just in the last few weeks, I've lost the whole lot. One of those times I had closed Firefox, the other time it closed for no apparent reason.

Paypal's going through making me change my password, and I used the password generator for that. I guess something went wrong again, because it wants me to change my password yet again.

The problem with Firefox, is that when I hit Suggest Strong Password, all I get is the same one I already used. This is no help. Paypal says "The password has been used recently. Please try another one."

I expect it would generate a fresh one if I restarted Firefox, but that isn't always convenient, depending on what's loaded in other tabs, or in the process of downloading. So let's skip suggestions of restarting.

How do I get Firefox's password generator to generate a fresh password?

When I try to post a pic on Marketplace in Firefox I select the .JPG picture and upload it. The picture I want to post appears fine before I upload it. Once I upload it to Facebook, it just appears as a solid colour. I have attached a couple pics, one is of the pic I want to upload and the other is the pic after it is uploaded. I should state that if I use Chrome or Edge, it works fine. And if I try to post a pic to my timeline it works fine. I just have this problem when using FireFox and trying to post to MarketPlace I know, well just use Chrome or Edge, I DON'T WANT TO :-) I want to use my FireFox. Ian

I tried optimising firefox's settings for the most possible privacy. When i visit firstpartysimulator.org and complete the test, the result claims i do have a decent protection against tracking while my "software" is not checking for "do not track policies". By software im not sure if this is ment to be the operatingsystem or the browser, firefox. The result also shows i do have a nearly unique fingerprint. If i remove one of my current extensions -> canvas blocker, i do have a unique fingerprint. This is not good as i see it.

How can i make firefox (or windows if so) check for do not track policies? I noticed the duckduckgo addon claims to always check for do not track policies but im not sure if i really need this extension. Also do not track only works if the host website supports it as far as i know. To get this to an end, the question is 1, how to make us of do not track policies, 2 how can i make my fingerprint less unique? I only changed a couple settings in about:config and use a total of 3 browser extensions, this shouldnt be to much unique, or?

I just synced two new devices (Android phone and tablet) using the scanned QR code because I got the error message that the password I was trying to use was incorrect. I don't understand what has happened, as I am "signed in" on desktop, laptop and those two devices with that password, as far as I know.

I was trying to set up the Recovery Key, but that also tells me that the current password is incorrect. I do not want to lose all of my saved passwords, history, etc., which is what it sounds like will happen if I try to reset my password.

Help!

Hello Everyone,

I have a Firefox account and I used to have all my passwords saved in Lockwise app (on my Huawei mobile) and in Lockwise section on my laptop (Linux) and all these passwords were synced across all my devices. I changed my mobile to IPhone and I didn't install Lockwise but I was still able to get to my logins via my laptop. And I was very cautious that I kept syncing every now and then.

The problem is that I formatted my laptop recently to windows 11, when I installed Firefox on my laptop again I was expecting to be able to retrieve all my passwords (around 200 entries) since everything was synced, but to my surprise everything was lost except for 16 entries.

Is there any way to backup my old list of passwords?

Please note that I still have my old phone (Huawei) with the old passwords list and the auto sync turned off. Is there any way to backup these passwords from Huawei to Iphone and to my Laptop?

Hello there

I have a small NAS with various video files on it. Some AVI which work flawless but also some MOV which show but do not play audio.

Other chromium based Browsers manage to do so without any problems therefore it should be possible somehow.

Informations regarding the file: Filetype: MOV Codec: MP4 Base w/ AVC ext (ISO 144496-12:2005) Channels: 2 compressor: sowt Sample rate: 48khz Depth: 24bit Bit rate: 16

It was recorded with a Nikon D3200 camera.

As I am hosting these Files for other people I always get requests on why it does not work in Firefox.

I love Firefox and I want People to use it but such things just make in unnecessarly hard to do so.

I have experienced great business support from the Mozilla team, hope this to be true for home users too.

Thanks beforehand and have a nice evening.

On Monday last, whilst printing email information my firefox connection disappeared. I later recovered the site, however now have no connection with my default printer Cannon 6300 seies and my printer. Also unable to remove the item I wished to print when the site was down in print list, have removed other items in print list with no problem. Now cannot not only remove item from print list, also cannot print using Firefox Browser on default printer. Have spent some time trying to solve situation. Any assistance which can be supplied would be gratefully received. Also now problems with printing from Windows office in Word, and Excel?

Could be block issue due to being unable to clear print list?

Thank you in anticipation of your assistance and support regarding these issues.

Kind regards Anne

I'm using Firefox on a 2021 Macbook Pro (the one with the notch) and I've noticed that when I'm in full screen mode and I navigate to the Mac menu bar, the Firefox tab menu drops down. This wasn't a problem on my old Mac, since it allowed for the Mac menu to drop down, but since the menu has been moved to the top of the screen on either side of the notch on the new Macbook Pro, it's unncessary and bothersome. Is there a setting I can change to prevent this from happening?

(Firefox 94.0; Fedora 34; Gnome)

When I go to some video websites and click the play button, I see the little circular thing in the image are spinning, indicating that the video is loading. But it never stops and it never plays. Also, the pause button does not have any effect; the loading indicator keeps spinning. Example website: "https://proclassictv.com/" (both with "The Rifleman" and "My Favorite Martian" episodes. I've tried this on a few of the videos available there. Same result. I've tried this with add-ons enabled and with add-ons disabled (current session). I've seen this in a few other websites also. I don't know if the problem is my system, Firefox, or the host website.

I am able to view youtube videos with no problems.

How do I get the videos to play?

Thank-you.

Hi Guys!

Hi,

I would like to re-import my old passwords and log ins, but it seems that the new version of the browser doesn't have that option unfortunately. I can see only Import from Other Platforms options, but not import from file or similar.

I have .csv file, but no option of how to import in into my browser.
