Hi,

After updating Firefox to 116.0.1 my tabs keep randomly crashing. I get some crash reports *occasionally* - meaning not all crashes produce a crash report - but I'm not sure what to do with them, they seem inconclusive. The last report (not for the last crash, though, which didn't produce any report) is bp-3334b934-58b5-4226-887a-235300231117

I moved to Firefox because I have autism and someone told me it would help block the popups and moving content that makes using the web exhausting and difficult. And it does!

The trouble is, it replaces them with something worse – a grey screen that rolls continuously from left to right. It's impossible to focus on text with such intrusive visual distraction, so I have to shut the page down. It seems to occur on so many websites that at the moment it's not worth trying to use the browser.

Half the problem is that I don't know the right term to describe it, which makes troubleshooting a bit complicated. Hopefully someone will recognise it from the description, though – if so, is there any way of stop it moving, please?

Thank you!

Hello! Since updating to the last version (119.0.1), Firefox started keeping my open tabs between sessions. This is a behavior I don't want, and the only solution that I found told me to enable "clear history on close", however that is also not ideal, because I don't want to clear my history. The "Open previous windows and tabs" setting is off and my homepage is set to Firefox Default. I don't know where else to look for such a setting, except in the about:config, but even there I'm not sure which one is causing the issue. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Windows 10 Pro 21H2, Firefox 119.0.1

I restarted my computer and when I booted Firefox up it looked completely different. I'm assuming they updated, but updates never impacted my settings before and in this case none of my sessions or history is left.

I logged in to my Mozilla account and that recovered my extensions, though not my toolbar settings.

The real issue is that all of my tabs and windows are gone. In History, "Recently closed windows" is greyed out and Recently closed tabs shows nothing but what's been opened since I restarted.

Is there any way to recover my history?

Edit:

Resolved: Somehow a blank profile had been set as the default.

Dear Community,

I am trying to download a large file. Am on a course, and the main tutor has given the group a file to download. Have tried downloading this 5 times, but get little luck. The file that I would want to download is 8.5GB, and the furthest I get is about 4GB.

I have 2 questions about this.

1) I seem to have a very 'in and out internet connection. It seems to go down at times for no reason, cutting off the download. Is there anything I could do about this? How could I troubleshoot this, please? 2) Does anybody know of any special tools that I can use to download in a more efficient manner, please? Perhaps an extension for Firefox might be able to do this, perhaps? Kind Regards to Anyone Answering this Query, Marek

UPDATE: when I use the troubleshooting method, i.e, WHAT HAPPENS is it appears to be trying to work, but it's on again, off again, with more than one extension appearing to be the problem. Very mystifying. The only time the problem is completely fixed appears to be when I close all the extensions. (So far.)

HELP!!!!

When I open YouTube, the search videos all show an image. Then when I select one, for the last two days now, that ("front page) image is gone - although the video plays OK.

When I us my Chrome browser the video I've selected begins playing the instant I open the video; even when I've opened the link in a new tab.

I'm using Firefox for Windows and usually have a few set pages that appear every time I open a new window. Every now and again, I have to add, remove, or change one of these pages. The issue is that I have to see something like this whenever I want to change anything.

`https://link1.url.com/|https://link2.url.com/|https://link3.url.com/|https://link4.url.com/|https://link5.url.com/`

Naturally, whenever I open a new window in Firefox, this is automatically interpreted to open multiple pages. However, this way of displaying them is still inconvenient. I want to know if we can get something more like this.

https://link1.url.com/ https://link2.url.com/ https://link3.url.com/ https://link4.url.com/ https://link5.url.com/

Is there a way to edit the Settings UI to see a multi-line list with the ability to add, remove, or change these links individually? Thank you.

Youtube videos hang in Firefox. An error message comes up stating "if the video doesn't start playing, try restarting your device." Instead of restarting my device every few videos (i've already emptied cache etc) it's a lot easier to use Brave. BUT, I'd prefer to use Firefox. Is there likely to be a fix for this any time soon?

Seems like Firefox and Youtube just don't play well together.
