hi,

can someone suggest how i can fix this. I use private browsing window for most things and when PC opens links i need them to be in private mode. But they all are opened in non-private browsing and load browser full of trash cookies even before they receive permission to do so (EU regulation). Causing me to delete these trash cookies every time.

So How can i set to all links from outside Firefox are opened in Firefox private browsing window?, or How can i set that before page loads in Firefox there is pop-up that ask if i need this opened before it is loaded?

Hello,

I've just recently been experiencing this problem.

I would play a Youtube video, but after a few minutes, it would just stop, no error message. It just stops.

I then reload the page, but then it plays with no audio. I would have to close Firefox and restart the video, just to have it stop again after a few minutes.

I have the latest version of Firefox installed. I've tried refreshing the Firefox setup, uninstalling and reinstalling, reinstalling the video drivers, but nothing seems to be solving the problem.

Video plays just fine with Chrome or Edge.

Windows 10 Pro (Made sure it was up to date as well). 250mbps connection

Lately (as of which version, I'm not sure), I've been noticing that if I enter a URL in the address bar of a tab that already has a page open, instead of going to the new URL I entered, Firefox will refresh the current page instead. This happens A LOT and is pretty annoying. Wondering if this happens to anyone else.

For a couple months now I have not been able to paste anything on Facebook via Firefox. I can use Explorer, Chrome and can paste anywhere else just fine. When I paste on Facebook messenger, the chat window closes and I have to refresh Facebook to even be able to see my messages again. Otherwise, I click on it and nothing happens. When I try to paste a post on my wall, it I get a "Something isn't working. This may be because of a technical error we're working to fix." (I just copied and pasted that here no problem) Tried clearing history/cookies/cache. Help?

restore multiple tabs from a previous, but not last, session

How to restore many tabs from the session before the last session?

Windows 10, Firefox 89.0

If there is more than one window open: Window A has many tabs; Window B has one tab; then when I close Firefox, the other window remains open. If window A is closed first, then closing window B means that firefox will restore the tabs of window B because it was the previous session.

How can I recover the many tabs from Window A?

Can I retrieve a list from history and reopen many at once?

Can I reload the appropriate "previous.jsonlz4" which is the next previous file?

Is there a reliable add-on that can remember open tabs?

Is there a way to easily modify the right click menu when clicking a tab because 'Reload Tab' use to be on the top of the list when you would right click on a tab, now the top option is 'New Tab' and theirs the '+' on the right of the tab on the right so it also seems a little redundant to have it top of the right click list. Also Reload Tab seems more useful than the New Tab. So is there a way to easily modify that menu to get Reload Tab back to the top?

I tried the Theme Font & Size Changer add-on but it says "because of the new extension system on firefox, most of the functionality is not available anymore."

I have no idea what that means, but I do know these tabs were not this small awhile ago. And my other older computer's tabs are readable.

I tried the about:config thing and changed it to 2 (layout.css.devPixelsPerPx) but that didn't have any effect.

Is there any help for ppl who can't see so great?

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

Netflix quit working today. It said my browser version was no longer supported. I updated from v.86 to v.89. It looks like crap. New tab + icon is gone. "tab bar" is not transparent or dark mode. And guess what: Netflix still doesn't work. That's probably their problem but now I have no Netflix, weird crap on the whatever bar, add-on icons are gone, and this big gaudy tab bar.

How do I rollback to a previous version? I'd rather not have excuses or sales pitches as to why 89 is better from the newer-is-better crowd. For me 89 is NOT better.

So, how do I rollback to a previous version?

I have searched multiple solutions around here and none of them work. I have tried everything I know to get the bookmarks in the toolbar to how again. How do I do it?

I can't add a website to Enhanced Tracking Protection exceptions. I need to add a website to see if that fixing it not loading properly.

Adding exceptions for Cookies and Site Data is working well. So this is just an oversight. Can we please have this fixed in the version? Should be easy as pie.

Please note: I cannot visit that website to get to its "shield" icon. I *have* to add this website manually to the exceptions list. But this is also an issue of principle: if there's a list that can be removed from, it should also be possible to add to it, whatever list it may be.

Hi,

in the latest version of Firefox (updated June 2021), the home page had the icons shrink in size considerably.

I'm visually impaired, and this change had made the home page unusable. It's just too hard to see!

Is there a setting to adjust the homepage icons back to their larger size? They used to be 2-3 times the size, and really useful. The boxes the pics are in are still the same, but the icons displayed are tiny now, at least to these tired old eyes.

Thank you in advance! Tony
