My Macbook Pro was repaired at the local Apple store. When I got it back, Firefox was closed. When I opened it again, I could not restore my previous session. It has been over a week now. How can I restore the session from before my Macbook Pro was repaired?

I frequently have difficulty when I need to make plain-test copies of web pages. These are pages that only allow "Select All" to select parts of pages, so that important parts of the pages cannot be selected, or so that a large number of select-and-copy cycles are required to copy the information on a webpage. The Firefox extensions that I have tried like the old "right to click" do not seem to help much. With old versions of Windows, I would use print-to-file for a generic plain-text printer, but that does not provide a readable file on Win 10.

I frequently find these problems on web pages with survey questions. This web page is a very simple example where multiple cycles of select-and-copy are required: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/new/desktop/form People who have accounts on Meetup.com should see an egregious example on this page: https://www.meetup.com/account/interests/

Thanks for any help, Lloyd

Finally figured it out; and since earlier posts raised the issue but didn't have this solution, I decided to post what worked for me.

1. Download an example of the file type you're having issues with 2. CTL-J or click the down-pointing arrow icon ("display the progress of ongoing downloads") at top right of menu bar 3. Right-click the file name of the item you just downloaded; then choose "Always open similar files"

Adding the file type to Settings > Applications was not an option. Windows Media Pack was a red herring. Autoplay is a different thing.

Hope this helps someone, or maybe ME the next time I forget.

I realize this may not be a browser issue. But, I'm pulling my hair out trying to find a solution to my problem and I'm hoping someone at Firefox may have a solution or suggestion. My problem is, how in the world do I get help or support with my Yahoo email account. Yes, the site has help and support links, but you have to pay to use the. Frankly, rather bazaar you have to pay for support when you're the client. So, does anyone at Firefox have a solution or suggestion to access help/support to Yahoo emails accounts or Yahoo without paying for the support? Thank you.

When I am in about:preferences#general, the Find in Settings box has it's active field set up right when access to this page is provided, when I off-click to the side of that box, it does nothing about the control field which is active, highlighting stuff can make that blinking stop and hold in a static state but only clicking other control areas can I get that active field to stop blinking in the Settings box, that forced active field is a pet peeve for me on account of it starting active when the page goes up but also because it has an invisible hitbox outside the visible one, and cannot be offclicked in a casual way, I want that not to be active when that page opens and I want the hitbox reduced to the visible one and I want an offclick in the rest of the white field to deactivate the active field in the Settings box.

I've got about 10 bookmarks with links to support pages each about adjusting specific about:config setting to my needs. My job also requires me to change systems lots of times, from Mac to windows to Linux. Is there an easy way I can save my personal about:config changes to a file for easy import on other systems?

Thanks

Hello. For some time, under each entered expression in the sent post office there has been a red "wavy" underlining. The problem is to choose a language. In my case it is Polish. Unfortunately, in the Firefox browser, which I use, there is no option to change the language to Polish (Annex 1) as it is in the Google Chrome browser (Annex 2). Why? I would like to add that this phenomenon only occurs in the case of Onet in Firefox. How can this be removed? Regards Alex.

Hi there,

for ages, I was slightly annoyed by not being able to choose audio output for video conferencing in my browser favourite, Firefox. I think it is time to move this to more prominence as it is solved for ages and exists as experimental feature: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=934425 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1294381

Toggle"hidden" config parameter media.setsinkid.enabled to true (https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Firefox/Experimental_features#apis) to enable it.

Could you find good places to share this? My impression is that this default is a huge UX disadvantage of firefox vs. chrome at the moment.

Best, Baltasar

I have a website with a major audio mp3 library. When testing the audio player in Firefox I loss the speed and download functions of the player. The right click option is not really what I am looking for visually and practically for my users. When in Microsoft Edge or Chrome the player has the extended functions visible to the user. As I am principally a firefox user, I'd really like to find a solution. Three images attached show the issue. Any help is appreciated. Regards Erwin Henderson

As per this issue I reported a while back, I was experiencing odd issue with automatic redirect to HTTPS for some private development sites.

I finally found a fix for the issue. The problem appears to be with DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials Extension which apparently *may automatically redirect to the http site. In order to prevent this, I added my development sites to 'Unprotected Sites' and this prevented DuckDuckGo from doing the automatic redirect to https.

  • - Odd thing is that I had multiple domains pointing to the same web instance and only one of the domains was having this issue with the DDG extension. Both were going to the same IP through a HTTP proxy. The proxy and web server were not the issue. This symptom points to an maybe an issue in Firefox....

In summary, be wary of odd redirects and the DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials extension if you are doing web development work.
