The subject line says it, really: though "Restore previous session" is still ticked in Options, a reboot presented me with just my homepage tabs. Is this, as I hope, an inadvertent bug or a design decision?

I'm using a desktop PC running Windows 7. Many thanks.

Hello,

I just upgraded to Firefox 87 and noticed that I wasn't able to go back to the previous webpage by clicking on the backspace button like what I have done in the past if I'm not using a mouse on my laptop and had to click on the back button in the toolbar with the trackpad. I'm not too sure of why that happened with the upgrade and was a little surprised about that. Hope I can be able to get around this in some way if one of you know anything about this. Thanks.

Using FF 88.0.1 in both Linux Mint and Windows 10 and without syncing add-ons, The "New Tab Override" looses my granted permission and opens a new tab on it's own Options/Preferences page, where it shows that permission is granted.

The simple solution I found that clearing the Startup cache restores functionality.

Already reported this on the add-on's Github site, which directed me back here.

Firefox obviously couldn't care less about users when it comes to making things user-friendly. What are users supposed to do in order to sign into their account? I don't need to enable two-step authentication, so why are they forcing me? If they think it's necessary, what is "my authentication app"? I don't have any authentication app and why do I need it to sign into my account on my PC??? Where do I get that authentication app? Is it really so hard to include a link or at least a name of that app?

I have gone into about:config and tickered in there... I have also done a refresh, attempted to go into safe mode, and tried looking in features under the about Firefox menu.

Please assist... if nothing else works, I may have to uninstall and reinstall. I hate to do that though.

This is a weird one. I would appreciate help. Please read carefully before responding....I am not a newb

Connected my new XPS laptop for the first time to my monitor. Everything looks fine (Windows 10, Chrome, other programs) EXCEPT for Firefox. In Firefox, all the text looks grainy, obviously not right. I disabled all my extensions, REFRESHED/RESET the browser, with no improvement.

But when I opened Firefox's troubleshooting mode, the browser immediately improved, became crystal clear. Also, when I took a screenshot to post here, the screenshot of the text appeared crystal clear as well. So it's definitely not the monitor.

Again, I've refreshed Firefox, and turned off all my extensions. Uninstalled and reinstalled. Still seeing grainy text. Troubleshoot mode says it turns off "extensions, themes, and custom settings" --what else does it turn off?

Any suggestions welcome.

Thanks, s.

Note': Such problems do exist when all add-ons disabled and in safe mode Firefox (by "refresh firefox" option).

When Firefox is started, an advertising window would occur. The hijacked address: https://winxuan[.]jd[.]com/?cu=true&utm_source=kong&utm_medium=tuiguang&utm_campaign=t_1000623798_&utm_term=19dca519301545a6b711007896b3b333 hijacked address

Also, Ctrl + Shift + N was hijacked to the same window.

The window is strange: When I click the "+" button to open a new tab, the new tab directly opens in the previous window.

Perhaps something in Firefox itself was maliciously modified, I guess.

I am using 88.0.1 (64-bit) version Firefox on Win10.
