Before shutting down Firefox I deleted history/cache/passwords etc from the past day

I do this all the time but since I had restore previous tabs selected they always get restored when I start up again

However this time they weren't restored when I restarted

Without closing Firefox I navigated to the sessionstore-backups folder to see what was there but the files were only 2KB - much too small for the number of tabs.

So I installed ShadowExplorer & Shadowcopyview to see if I could recover older versions I was able to locate jsonlz4 files from a few days ago that were around 11000KB in size so I assumed they would have most of my tabs

However when trying to use the files nothing happens - I tried 2 different steps that I read here had worked for others

1 - Renaming previous.jsonlz4 to sessionstore.jsonlz4 , moving to the profile folder (deleting the old one first) and restarting FF

2 - Deleting sessionstore.jsonlz4 and copying the recovered previous.jsonlz4 / recovery.baklz4 /recovery.jsonlz4 / upgrade.jsonlz4-20201014125134 files to the sessionstore-backups folder and restarting FF

I also repeated the steps after creating a separate profile

None of these worked so I tried examining the jsonlz4 files using https://www.jeffersonscher.com/res/scrounger.html but I got an error message 'Session history file contents could not be read?'

Now I've previously used recovered Jsonlz4 files to restore tabs with no issues but this time they won't work

I read here https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1189759 that updates may cause compatibility issues and the upgrade.jsonlz4-20201014125134 file indicates they was a recent update

The recovered file sizes indicate they contain data so I want to know how I can recover it - if not through FF then through some other software

Can't use Firefox on certain websites that have reCAPTCHA. I click the box "I'm not a robot" and the window doesn't pop up for me to select the pictures of the bridges or crosswalks or whatever. I have to go Microsoft Edge for these types of websites. This is one of them. https://www.relaxdds.com/contact-dentist I filled out the online form, clicked the box for "I'm not a robot" and it gave me an error "The reCAPTCHA was invalid. Go back and try it again." So I used Microsoft Edge and it worked. The pop up window appeared and i was able to continue on. How do I fix this in Firefox?

Tell me why I can successfully use Chrome and MS Edge to login and use web sites but not Foxfire. I have to login to the Lions Clubs International web site to pull information and when I use foxfire, it just doesn't reply... When I use the other browsers, it works normally. I have used FoxFire for years and was very happy with it until now. There must be some new functions in the other browsers that FF doesn't have yet. Will it be fixed soon or am I going to have to switch browsers?

When I last opened Firefox and entered a website, it did not load at first. Instead there was a message about OpenResty being installed or running. Since then there has been no other issue.

What is OpenResty, should it be running on Firefox? Do I have a problem.

I run the current version, with Adblock Plus, Duck Duck Go, and Facebook Container extensions.

My baby got a hold of the laptop and hit the keyboard a few times. Now I have lines going vertical, horizontal, and diagonal as well as around the address bar and some input boxes. I have refreshed firefox, uninstalled and reinstalled as well as looked under config browser.display.focus_ring_style to zero. I believe it is something in firefox not the computer since it only occurs there. the lines on the screen move with it when I scroll if that helps. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Why does Mozilla list this on their website if it is outdated?? It's like doing a search on Google in 2020 and getting results from 2014 version of Firefox. it is completely irrelevant. I didn't think Mozilla was as bad as Google.

For past week or so, pages very, very slow to load. I often must close and open browser, as pages become unresponsive. I have NEVER had this problem; have always been able to open these multiple tabs and navigate between them with no problem at all over past year! I have made zero changes to add-ons or software in past 2 months. The ONLY change has been the FireFox update. I am now being forced to use another browser. Please let me know how I can reverse the update and go back to an older, stable, usable version of FireFox

Hi

I'm an Computer Vision engineer and I migrated from Chrome recently.

The problem is, when I train a neural network and GPU utilization goes beyond 90% Firefox becomes unusable and sometime freeze my whole PC entirely.

I'm not even talking about YouTube or video sites, just new tab is enough to cause problem.

This never happen in Chrome and I'm forced to keep using it every time I need to use GPU.

Is there any tip for this?

I've been using Firefox 63.0 for quite some time and had dozens of websites open. I referred to these websites frequently. After checking some emails this morning, I decided to RESTART my laptop. It turned out this was a HUGE mistake!! When I went to "Recent Items" as I usually do to find the Firefox link, the only version available was 70.0.1. Not only was 63.0 NOT in "Recent Items" I could no longer find it in my Download logs. I had chosen NOT to begin using version 70.0 because there was no mechanism to move my open site from 63.0 to 70.0. HOW DO I FIND AND OPEN 63.0 OR, ALTERNATIVELY, GET 70.0 TO FIND AND RETAIN THOSE SITES I HAD ON MY 63.0? I should note that ALL MY PASSWORDS where required were stored on the 63.0 browser and are NOT present when I use the 70.0 version!!

I use the washingtonpost.com website multiple times daily. I just went to that site. Instead of the WAPO, the site opened to openresty.com. Openresty.com has replaced my Washington Post site and shortcut -- but ONLY in Firefox. The Washington Post site is up and running. I can reach the WAPO in Chrome on the same computer, my son can reach it in Safari and Chrome on his computer. I don't know how to get rid of this or if it is a threat. Thanks.
