'Hi, is this a known issue? Ebay will not render inside my Firefow browser.

Still looks like some parts of the page don't load, tried all the individual line items in 'page info' without success.

Seems to forget that the security was overwritten.

I have done this and my problem is still there- I can't download add ons and mozilla keeps asking me to download firefox. What's wrong?

I may have changed a setting ... Normally when I need to sign back in to my yahoo/att email account I can select "stay signed in for 2 weeks" and that works. But as of today, even though I select the 2 week option, when I leave my email page, I have to sign back in upon returning. Every time..... The "stay signed in" option is currently working on Google Chrome and other browsers, but I'd prefer to continue with Firefox. Thank you

In my main profile, restore session stopped working. The option is set, but it doesn't work. It worked for 3 years since I created this profile, but now it doesn't work.

Recently, this profile has been crashing regularly on quit. I quit (CRTL-Q) and the window does away, then 10 seconds later, I get a pop up message saying that firefox crashed.

Just a moment ago, I had a system crash and now this profile refuses to restore my session. When I started it, there was a new session and all the backup session files contain new sessions, not my tabs. Lost all tabs.

Anyone else seeing this?

I am responding to jscher2000, who posted to my question a short while ago about the loss of my bookmarks and being unable to restore. Thanks very much for the fast response. I checked the Places Database section of Troubleshooting, and as you suggested it does say "The places.sqlite database is sane", and "The favicons.sqlite database is sane". So I assume that's good? Now what do I do? Again, many thanks for the assistance.

When I use Firefox on the external monitor, I set the zoom level to 150%. When I leave home a take my laptop with me, I set the zoom level to 100% to use with a smaller screen.

I want to automate setting the zoom level.

Is there a way to programmatically set the zoom level from a script? Does Firefox expose such an API / command-line tool?

Thanks!

I used this app on Firefox which provides "aliases" for my credit card for online purchases. After an update, it was no longer available on Firefox; I now use Chrome for all purchases. Does anyone know what happened to Eno and if it will return to Firefox? I'm a user and not a technician so I'd appreciate non-technical language if possible. Thanks.

Some eighteen months ago I asked you how to make the scroll bars wider in Outlook. But at the time I was using Windows 7 and I cannot find your answer in my saved emails.

Now I am using Windows 10 and I would again like to widen the scroll bars in Outlook.com my email account.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Please remember I am old and not at all computer savvy and would be so grateful for a slow and easy to follow method.

Thank you so much in advance for your help.
