Hi, for the past week whenever I open Firefox (FF) it works normally for about two minutes, then slows, then causes my entire mac to slow and freeze. If I don't force quit FF quickly, my mac crashes. Once I force quit FF everything is fine. I've been using Chrome for the past week or so hoping FF would fix itself with an update but no go.

Anyone else having this issues?

Can't restore previous session tabs after Firefox crash using Firefox 95 on Mac

I have consulted https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-restore-my-tabs-last-time. That article says:

-Click on the menu button [three lines at the upper right] to open the menu panel. -Click History. -Click Recently Closed Tabs.

I am using Firefox 95.0.2 for Mac (iOS 10.15.7). There is no "Recently Closed Tabs" option to click after clicking on History per the above instruction. I have saved various files from the time of the crash, in particular "previous.jsonlz4" (a 20.6 MB file, as I had a very large number of tabs open). Is there any way to use this or some other file to restore my old tabs?

Hi! I'm using Firefox on my Mac. Last update. My problem is simple: when I close Firefox, it doesn't remember the last size of the window. So, for example, I normally use it on the full dimension of the screen (but not in full size: I'll post a picture to explain, because I'm not good with words hahah). Instead, when I relaunch it, it opens like in small size (I'll post a picture of that, too). Is there something that I can do? Thx.

This is just a question. I have disabled the extension on Firefox, got the latest version. I have heard it's the fastest browser. I don't really care about speed, except to detect network problems on my fiber connection. I have been showing 930Mb/sec speeds for years. When I tried Firefox by curiosity, it shows 480. I am curious why that might be?

Bug voting is open. Your help file says "Click on the "(vote)" link that appears on the right of the "Importance" fields." I do not know what an importance field is. The word "importance" does not appear on the page. The word "vote" does not appear either. THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THIS LINK ARE NOT FOR REGULAR USERS: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/page.cgi?id=voting.html

Where is the vote button??? Here is the page where I want to vote: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1581664

As a beginner, I see nothing at the end of this page to be notified if responded. If I dont' get notified, I probably wont be able to find my way back here. Why so difficult for non-power users?!?

I just signed up for Firefox Monitor. Most of the accounts it says were breached are ones I recognize, and I have changed my passwords. However, it also says there were data breaches affecting two sites I do not have an account with at all (Whitepages and Verifications.io). What do I do about those, since I haven't got an account (I don't even know what Verifications.io is), so I don't have a password to change.

Hi,

I use Firefox as my default browser.

Whenever I click on a link in an email it opens a new Firefox window instead of opening a new tab on a Firefox window that is already open.

My preference is for it to open a new tab on an already open Firefox window.

I have looked in the settings / preferences and can’t seem to find where to make this change.

Please can you advise the process / steps for me to make this to happen.

Starting yesterday, Firefox will not load the description section of any eBay listings (Chrome is doing the same thing). This is the error:

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to vi.vipr.ebaydesc.com. Peer reports it experienced an internal error. Error code: SSL_ERROR_INTERNAL_ERROR_ALERT

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

I am on my Mac Pro, running OS 10.14.3. If I open listings on a Windows machine on the same internet connection, the pages load fine. The problem persists even after clearing the cache/cookies. I need to find out what is causing this, as I use eBay on a daily basis for work. If anyone has any ideas, your input will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

P.S. The only extensions I am using are UBlock Origin (pages do not load properly with it disabled, either), Facebook Purity, and New Tab override.

In my preferences I have "Restore previous session" checkbox checked and "Warn you when quitting the browser" unchecked. However I get a warning when I quit the browser with multiple tabs open, and my old tabs don't reopen when reopening Firefox.

I think this has started happening since updating to Catalina. Any ideas what might be going wrong?

Whenever I restart my computer (occurs at least once a day), I need to login to my Firefox account. This allows my bookmarks and saved logins to populate.

Whenever I login, I receive an email stating "New sign-in to Firefox" even though I am always logging in from the same device. Under my profile's list of devices, it lists the one device several times.

Is this intended behaviour, or is there a way for Firefox to at least recognize that my current device is the same as the one I logged into before?
