I had two Firefox windows open. One had 100+ tabs open, the other had around 5 open. Like a klutz I accidentally closed the window with the 100+ tabs open instead of the other window. Now when Firefox restarts it opens the version with the 5 tabs.  :-( I read about lost tabs in Firefox. I have found a file with the 100+ tabs in it. It is called: upgrade.jsonlz4-20221007134813. But what do I do next to restore Firefox to restart with the 100+ tabs version? Thanks.

When I'm on a web page, I'd like to be able to drag or copy the URL, with its associated name, from the address bar into Onenote. When I do that now I only get the URL in Onenote. I can get both the URL and name if first I drag the URL to the bookmark bar and then I drag the bookmark into Onenote.

Does anyone know a way to get it done in one step?

On 10/16 I reported here a corrupt session file that broke Firefox. Finally resolved for the most part.

Firefox sync sessions?

Today, I launched Firefox 106, and all my pinned tabs were missing, on several differently customized profiles with the same session.

I reverted back to Firefox 105.03, and the pinned tabs on all those tested profiles reappeared.

Can somebody check this out? It may be a coincidence, but this is too close for comfort.

Amazon Sign-in problem started on 10-15-22. Amazon does not accept my password and asks me if I would like to receive a text message for verification. There is no yes or no selection displayed. I select resend text and I am given a telephone number for Amazon customer service. I go thru a 15 minute security verification process and Amazon tells me if I do not answer any questions correctly, they will cancel my account. On the 2nd time I contacted Amazon, I was told to use Crome browser and not to use Firefox.

This problem happens with my personal computer (windows 10) only. My Android phone using the Amazon app works with no problems. I can also use Crome browser on my computer and Amazon works fine.

Any suggestions ? Thanks

hello and good day to whom ever this massage gets to.

I just updated my windows at my work pc and all my programs were deleted and so I got signed out of all my accounts. I reinstalled firefox and tried to sign in but because its been a while I couldn't remember my password and had to reset it. but after all this and when I finally got into my account (with the same email address I was using until now) no matter how many times I click sync, nothing gets added to my bookmarks, history, passwords, etc.

then I checked with one on my phone to see whether that was working or not, and that was signed out as well and asks me to sign in again. I've been using this browser for years now and have many save information on this account I CAN'T LOSE ALL THAT. the primary account was on my laptop which is at home and currently I am terrified of turning that on and finding everything's gone again. please help me get my info back. I can't remember years of saved bookmarks and passwords.

When refreshing and clearing cache using CTRL+Shift+R, browser should reload all assets. However when refreshing site with @import(ed) style sheet, it does not update.

The workaround is to open the style sheet in a new tab (e.g. https://my.web.com/assets/custom.css) and run refresh + clear cache there CTRL+Shift+R, which loads the updated style sheet.

Then, upon refreshing the original site (https://my.web.com), the CSS has been updated.


Is this a bug or expected behaviour?

What is with Firefox lately. Endless problems with screen sizing, light dark mode. But what is really pi**ing me off is the inability to connect to certain web pages. No I don't have a any spyware or viruses (I have scanned with 3 different programs) and I have no problems with connecting to the pages with Chrome or Edge. I'm getting the error messages

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.amazon.ca because this website requires a secure connection.

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.ebay.ca. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details. Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.google.com because this website requires a secure connection.

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.google.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely.

And I get the same warning with Amazon, eBay, my email client Shaw Mail, Google Search, and several other pages that require a login. Is there anything I can do to fix this as I'm really starting to rethink my preferred web page browser?

Ever since yesterday, scroll click (I use it to scroll through websites) has stopped working in Firefox. Works in in programs, other browsers, etc., just not Firefox.

Whats weird is it still registers a click when I use it, so I can lick on links with it if I want, but the function of scrolling, either by clicking once and using my mouse to go up and down, or by clicking an holding, no longer works.

I've tried disabling add-ons, incognito mode, nothing seems to work.

How do I override CSS in Reader View as of Firefox version 105?

Any advice returned by Google seems to be obsolete or only worked perhaps in older versions of Firefox. The main idea of using userChrome.css to override the default styles for Reader View does not seem to work. My userChrome.css file does work on other items though (like removing the sidebar width restriction).

Whatever advice I find via Google perhaps cites outdated CSS selectors, but current selectors do not seem to be documented anywhere by Mozilla. Moreover, I cannot find any file on my local drive named aboutReader.css when using find or grep commands in bash, those this file name is alluded to when viewing a page in Reader View and then in turn viewing source on that transformed page.

Moreover, addons that would allow me to change the colors seem to be restricted in Reader View.

It does seem like something has changed in recent Firefox updates but I can't remember when I last saw, for instance, links in dark mode Reader View that were still pink (whereas now they are blue, and impossibly dark to see, especially when you are disabling as much blue light as possible through your operating system). I need a higher contrast color for links in dark mode Reader View so I can actually see them.

I can alternatively use the Tranquility Reader addon and have custom colors, but A) that addon does not work with the Automatic Reader View addon, whereby I can always have various sites appear in some sort of "reader view" whether the native one or Tranquility Reader, and B) hitting refresh when in Reader View will defeat some soft paywalls but this does not work with, e.g., Tranquility Reader, so I still would prefer to be able to custom colors in the native Reader View feature, rather than rely on an addon.

1. Where are the current styles for Reader View even documented? 2. Is overriding them now restricted? 3. Why did the link color change from pink to blue in newer versions of Firefox (this is a terrible accessibility bug)? 4 .Where is the alluded to aboutReader.css stylesheet actually stored on my computer (it doesn't seem to be a file on the filesystem in the Firefox profiles folder, it seems more like it is embedded in the Firefox binary/executable)? 5. Will Firefox settings ever allow us to set colors specifically for Reader View (I don't mean the override settings for all web pages, particularly web pages not being rendered in Reader View ... that setting does not help in Reader View, nor would it be the desired preference for pages not in Reader View)?

Thank you.
