I've had Firefox installed and working in W-10 for a long time, yesterday it suddenly got minimized to the task bar and nothing I tried would open it. I had to use Chrome to search for advice, and it turns out that other users had the same problem. I tried the suggestions (alt-spacebar-move) etc. but nothing worked. I had to got to "Uninstall" and the opted for the "Refresh" function to restore Firefox to a functional Browser. It's now working again, but what caused it? and is it likely to happen again? Thanks for your attention  :)

Last Firefox refresh saved all my working tabs, but lost my Toolbar, ALL bookmarks, and ALL saved Logins with passwords.

WTF?

I attempted to import my last saved version from a profile folder (I wasn't born yesterday), but nothing happens. Why can't I import? MS Edge conveniently has them all, but I don't like its layout and lack of menu bar, which I use a lot.

I've been screwed a few times by Firefox updates and refreshes. Why does this happen?

Please recommend a solution.

Well I've been looking into this a lot, but at this point I'm just spinning in circles.

Only when watching youtube streams, they'll cut out rather often. The stats for nerds has the Network Activity drop to 0, and live latency shoots up. Its only in firefox.

I can have the same stream open in chrome/edge, and they are not usually lagging when firefox does, or when they do it's for a shorter period.

I have tried safemode, turning off protections on Youtube, clearing cache, telling firefox to not use any proxies, changing my DNS, running the HTTP logging tool.

The logging tool looks like it could be the socket timing out, but I'm unsure how to fix it.

Is this just an issue with youtube hating firefox, or is it something I could fix?

words disappear from Gmail drafts in German

When I use Gmail in my up-to-date Firefox under Windows 10 or Linux and type e.g. "Leser und Leserinnen", then exit the draft and reopen it, "und Leserinnen" is gone. This happens to all tested feminine forms ending with "-innen", even irregular or non-existing ones, if they follow the masculine form and " und " (both preceded and followed by exactly one space). The truncation is case insensitive, and when I type the feminine form first, "innen" will be cut, and " und [masculine]" as well. Turning off auto-correction didn't help. Also, when I send a mail containing such a double form, it arrives correctly, but in my sent mails " und [feminine]" is gone. However, when I then open "forward" or "reply" with repetition of the sent mail, the deleted words are back in place. None of this happens when I use another browser or an E-Mail client or the Gmail app on my phone, nor does it happen with other mail providers, not even when using Firefox. I know this sounds weird, as if there were an automatic "politically incorrect maker". But it is exactly what happens. I wonder if anyone can replicate the phenomenon or - even better, find out why it occurs.

My visual impairment means I have to run FireFox (and my computer) in dark mode. When I try to print, while it does not waste ink by printing the entire page black, where the text is the printed page only has black bars. An image of a print preview screen is attached. If there are settings to fix this there, I cannot see them because this does NOT use the dark mode and I can't see it.

Currently to print something, I take a screen shot and use another program to reverse the colors. I would like to not have to spend 30-40 min editing an image every time I want to print.

A downloaded file (VMware-workstation-full-16.1.0-17198959.exe), Dwnlded on 19/Mar/21, ended up with a file size of 0 KB (SEE Image $20210320-mar~1-Download_Final_File_Size=0KB.jpg).

The file size should have been 622 MB (SEE Image $20210320-mar~2-Download_Save-File_Size.jpg).

I was wondering if the file ending in ".exe.part" may have been mistakenly accepted as the real file & renamed to ".exe".

Hello you smart people at Mozilla or others, When opening a page on ebay, after signing in to review my purchases, the page displays correctly when clicking further to open the link to review an item or to contact the seller the page is completely distorted and improperly presented. Thinking it was the site I connected with Chrome which loads it perfectly. So it must be a problem with Firefox browser.

Best regards to those that can figure this out!

Hi Since the most recent update I can no longer log into my barclaycard website, the site goes through the three security steps, then I get a message saying there has been a system error. I can log on using firefox android with no problem and also chrome works fine on windows and android. I'm using the latest x64 firefox build. I have tried safe mode, uninstalling and deleting all firefox settings, but it still refuses to log on to this site. Has anyone else experienced this issue? Regards Rob

The Bookmarks are all there, but the url is missing. None of the extensions (including ones I've paid for are there)

The logins weren't there, but are now restored from a previous install.

What I have done...

1. exported bookmarks to html and checked them out there. They were broken there as well.

2. Refreshed Firefox,

3. Restarted the PC.

4. Uninstalled Firefox (and discovered that I had both X32 and X64 on my machine) - uninstalled both. 5. Reinstalled Firefox x64 (current version 86.0.1)

6. the places.sqlite files from previous restores have the same problem.

I've started to refresh the links for the toolbar which has taken me awhile. I don't want to have to do it for all my hundred's of bookmarks.

Ideally what I'd like to do is uninstall the latest update, look at the bookmarks to see if they are still stuffed, and if the extensions are there. If they are ok, then I want to back the bookmarks to html. Reinstall the update, then restore the bookmarks. (And make a list of the extension names so I can reinstall them).

My guess is either that the sqlite file has corrupted, or the update has changed the file layout for the bookmarks, etc, and it's unable to interpret the links.

FF frequently fails to restore tabs losing all my previous work before I've finished. It's very annoying and frustrating. In search help the answer is not simple to understand. Please tell me, what is sessionstore and where can it be found? Why is there not a button to fix this problem? If sessionstore gets corrupted frequently as mine seems to (according to the answer) why not have a sessionstore back-up and a routine to correct the problem or at least easily recover from the corruption?
