Lest update to 15.9 all my extensions are now disabled. Missing Lastpass and Surfshark from my menu bar. Doesn't seem to be any way to Enable them from Extensions screen.

I reloaded Lastpass from their site and this is now working on my Menu bar.

But what happened to cause this

Hello. I suspect there was a cyber attack on April 1 2024. All of a sudden,having problems crashing with more than 1 browser. My Brave browser would open,and then crash with multiple tabs that had been saved. My Mozilla history was cleared,and I want it back because I need to find all sites I have visited from time to time for logins etc,but they are now gone.I have tried importing all of my Brave history,login forms to Firefox,but not sure where to located them or where they would be stored.

Right now i am focused on getting a Firefox profile from before April 1

I have never had to deal with this sort of thing before so i am saying that i may be somewhat noobish on this.I just want some expert instruction on what to do here,and how to do it.I,m not 100 percent sure if i can do it correctly on my own by googling this myself,then attempting it.Brave continues to open then crash right after,so I dont know whats going on there with the userdata folder in the appdata folders with regard to Brave. Everytime i try to install an older version of Brave,it says i already have a curent version of it,and i dont want to uninstall brave then reinstall it again,or not sure if i should do this. ThankYou.

Goodd day from UK I run firefox esr 115.9.1 and find the the F5 refresh key does NOT refresh the images. The same applies when using the "reload" icon in the menu.

Reading other posts, nothing seems to apply here.

There are NO add-ons at all and everything is cleared on close. The text DOES seem to change.

As a web developer checking updates this is extremely annoying as only hope is keep closing the browser (to clear everything) and restart - the loads new images etc.

I use several versions of Firefox (2, 20, 56) to ensure compatability with olf browsers and it seems to be only those over 100 with this issue.

Does anyone know if this is a "feature" or a"bug" and is there any simple (!) way around the issue?

Thanks

p.s. ALWAYS happens, not intermittently

I start Firefox from a batch file (Win7) on the first boot of the day. Manually I choose my "NEWS" bookmarks folder, then slide down to "Open all in tabs". (attached image) (Then I go pour a coffee while the news article tabs open and load data!)

Please and thank you, is there a way to specify this action from the command line? And if so, what is it?

I believe that I could use such a mechanism in other ways, such as opening all tabs in my "Forums" folder of bookmarks, or on Mondays, opening all tabs in my "Weekly" bookmarks folder.

Thank You, Chris

When trying to download a college lecture, instead of downloading, the file opens and runs in a new tab. In General Settings "Save files to" is set to "Downloads" and "MP3 file (audio/mp3)" is set to Save File. This worked fine for several years until the last few months. It currently works correctly in my Chrome browser, but I prefer using Firefox.

FF doesn't reliably open my last session. It used to but for nearly 18 months now it has become hit and miss. I have FF docked on my taskbar (Win 7 sp1) when I click it some times it opens all my tabs (I have it set to do that) but more frequently it doesn't and just opens one tab. Usually I catch it and in history select the tab showing many other tabs and I get it all back, but this doesn't always work like today, no option to do that because there's nothing there. When is it likely to be fixed, I've been complaining about this for months. I've even suggested FF collects a stack of last sessions (say 20) each time a session is closed and have a fixed entry for that in the menu, but nothing seems to change. I'm heartily sick of it, it's such a basic requirement of any browser and yet with FF it's just a pain in the neck.

I tryed Firefox 115.8.0esr and 115.9.0esr 32Bit on Windows 7. (78.15.0 works) Firefox crashes(the whole program, i mean no tab) on "about:support" or some pages on support.mozilla.org like https://support.mozilla.org/de/kb/firefox-leistungseinstellungen always reproduceable.

I disabled all Addons, i disabled this power optimizion setting, removed usercrome.css same. With Firefox savemode it dont crash. Spyware is blocked, means datareporting/telemetry/ping by disabling the options and empty the urls (like on FF 78 but it dont crash). Somewhere i read firefox can crash on a empty url, but i assume its fixed long time ago. A wrong, unreachable or empty url should not crash on well programming. Think about countrys that blocks urls, adblocker, pihole and so on. I dont remember about what url i read.

Does the savemode revert all about:config settings? What does support.mozilla ask the browser that causes the crash? It know it seems to identify the Browser, but usual its done by useragent and no "internal" communication.

Then FF always crash on ebay.de search if you scroll or change settings while the page is not ready. Spyware is too blocked by Hardware, ebay may wait for some ad? But thats already on FF78 but on 115 it seems more often, this was not with FF 52. But some sites including ebay stops to work with FF52/78 so no choice.

I have been using igHome as my Firefox home page for many years. Yesterday when I opened Firefox multiple porn pages kept opening. I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and that didn't help. I tried CCleaner and Malwarebytes to scrub any issues but that has not helped. HOWEVER, if I log out of igHome the multiple pages do NOT open, so apparently this problem is related to my igHome login.

I am using Windows 7 on this laptop and I understand that is no longer supported, but is there any way to remove whatever is causing these sites to open when I log in to igHome?

Please note this problem does not occur on a newer laptop running Windows 10. I am able to use igHome with no issues.

Thanks!

115.8.0esr (64-bit)

This newest release has a massive memory leak. I know it's Firefox, because I look at the system monitor, and there are even more entries for firefox.com running than usual. The first one on the top of the list is the biggest resource hog, and the next one is second. All the rest have something going on, but smaller. Looking at performance in the Windows Task Manager, under performance, the memory usage goes up. Right now, it's 5.35Gb of 16Gb. At worst, several days ago, it was at 12Gb. When I force close Firefox, the memory and usage goes way, way down, to a usable level.

I wrote last night. "Ed" someone got back to me, didn't quote my message, and said he was from another department. I DID EXACTLY THE SAME THING AS LAST NIGHT. I hit the blue button, which took me here, and he advised me to do today, which brought me here, AGAIN.

If this, again, goes to "restoring access to Mozilla accounts and subscription services such as Mozilla VPN", please be professional and forward it to the right department, possibly with my message quoted, as this is the second time I'm creating it, and only have my memory on which to fall back for the first time. The logical topic is "Fix slowness, crashing, error messages, and other problems".

At the same time, other releases have had big memory leaks, and they seem to get patched quickly.

Thank you again.

I noticed that after the recent updates, the pop-up notification for blocked pop-ups has changed from yellow to white.. This makes it very difficult to see and I almost missed it. Is there a way to revert this change using userChrome.css?

I don't understand why this unnecessary change was made. I already have my own userChrome style for the entire Firefox because it was frustrating to constantly change it back after each update.

I would appreciate any information on how to revert this change.

Thanks.

I have a PC with Windows 7 64b that I have updated after having synchronized with two laptops and one Android. After that Firefox works on all the units except the PC. On that I can see all Firefox shortcuts and Firefox account. But when I try to connect to a web place the screen is blank. I have also tried to sut down the computer and start again. No change. RAM memory is okay, storage on unit C: is a bit small and the CPU is Intel Core i5 3470@ 3,2GH instead of Pentium 4 and 4GH. Should I go back to an older version of Firefox that is not som demanding or is there someting else I can fix?

I have had no trouble using Firefox for many years and am able to access all/any websites excepting for one which upto a few months ago I had no trouble with. The one that I am unable to access is

  https://www.scc-online.org 

and all I get is the "The connection has timed out.." comment on an otherwise blank screen. I have contacted the webmaster who says that I am the only one with this problem. My neighbour who uses MS Edge has no trouble in displaying the website. He uses the same ISP as I do but uses Windows 11.

The webmaster says that it might be that I am using Windows 7 64bit and that Firefox cannot handle this particular website. Alternatively he suggested that my ISP was the cause of the problem although I have been using the current ISP for over 20 years and have never had this type of problem.

I have three computers all with Windows 7 and Firefox and they all have the same problem.

Is there any help available for me as the information on the "website" is important and I do not wish to have to go to my neighbour to view the website?
