So, whenever I open Firefox it will act normally and then after a second close by itself and when I reopen it, it will be in remote mode. I know how to fix this via about:config and do this every time, but I would much prefer a permanent fix, nothing else on Firefox or my computer indicates something else is going on, its just this. I've even at one point uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and it didn't help.

Here is a sample URL that works on Microsoft Edge (current version) and receives an error message on Firefox (115.0.2): https://www.t-mobile.com/home-internet The error received from the web site when using FF is:

Bad Request Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand. Size of a request header field exceeds server limit.

FF was working with all T-Mobile pages a few months ago and now fails with this same error on most pages.

To test on Edge, I pasted the identical address that failed in FF into Edge and it worked fine so I am confident I am comparing the same web page on the two browsers.

Thanks for your help. Claude

Hey, this has been going on for a few days, but when I try to use twitter on desktop, there are no retweet/like/reply buttons. This problem doesn't exist on Chrome or the Mobile app. I can reply to things, but that's it. I also can't browse through my notifications without the page immediately displaying the "Something went wrong. Try reloading." message. I'm not sure what's causing this or if it's just me or what.

For a while now (can't remember when it started) rendered graphics and text on FF is fuzzy. Examples of this can be see on Google maps, Miro, Powerpoint etc. On Chrome, Edge etc the rendering is sharp at all zoom levels but in FF its fuzzy until you zoom in.

Viewing on a 4k monitor, running 115.0.2 (64-bit), using the Windows store install Hardware acceleration is turned on. Tested on multiple PCs, all Windows 11

Attached images which shows the comparison between Firefox and Edge Both browser windows are the same size and the default zoom (100%) Examples attached are for Miro and Powerpoint

Updating FF, using Mac 10.12.6: Will ESR happen automatically?

I have Mac 10.12.6 on an "early 2009" 27" iMac. I'm waiting for the new 27/32inch iMac until I upgrade hardware and operating system. The release notes with FF V115 say in part " Users on those operating systems will be migrated to the ESR 115 version of Firefox."

I want to clarify that when I update to FF 116, FF will automatically install the ESR version, or will I need to do this manually? Also, will this update take a long time, like FF will be installing a totally new (ESR) version, rather than "just" the usual update?

I am very happy with the upgraded Firefox library. It works great except for one feature. Maybe there is a setting for it that I have missed.

When I click on an item in my library to open it, it opens it over top of the right-most tab that I have open. That means I always have to be careful to have a blank tab open, otherwise I lose the last item I was viewing. Is there a setting, or can you add a setting, to have the library open links in a new tab, or if one prefers in the existing tab? I want to be able to open in new tabs.

Hello, my WIN 10 Drive got busted, meaning I can not boot with it anymore. However, with an other WIN10 drive I still can access the data. I need to save all the Firefox bookmarks before I will format the Drive and install a fresh WIN10. All the searches just tell how to backup when Firefox is open or Win is running: Press WIN Key... etc. None of them is applicable. I have I have bookmarks saved as bookmarks as well as I have a lot on the upper bar. I need them all.

Please teach me how I can back them up and restore on a fresh Firefox. In previous crashes I lost a lot of bookmarks already. ' Thank you.

Firstly, I have a brain injury. I am easily overwhelmed by information and am slow to understand - especially anything to do with I.T.

Recently, I began successfully accessing the internet / Firefox via my Wifi Repeater. As of two or three days ago. I keep being asked to "log in to access the Internet", but even after I do it (successfully, as far as my repeater is concerned) I'm no further forward; I keep being asked to log in.

Thanks to my repeater I have a strong signal when in my garden office. But after a month, Firefox has suddenly stopped allowing me to use it. I am back at Square 1, before I purchased the thing.

I need need to work from my office. Please help resume my Repeater's access.

Kind regards,

Sean

Hello,

I am desperately trying to recover lost tabs from Firefox Browser after 2 crashes, freezing and forced shutdowns. I need the tabs for my work, and as usually happens, this has occurred at a time when I'm running to meet a critical deadline.

I've tried going to history, but the "recently closed tabs" option was greyed out:-( I've tried searching for other solutions, but cannot fine any that fit my situation. I'm not an IT expert - I know my way around what I need to use (i.e. professional worker), so clear & simple explanation would be much appreciated.

Can I recover the lost tabs from backed up data or a previous system image? My system is Windows 7, and I'm currently running Firefox version 115.0.2. All suggestions welcome!

Thanking you in anticipation off prompt assistance, MLH
