I Lost my FF session, (not sure what I did, but the menu toolbar shortcuts were gone & I cold not 'click' them back, so I figures I would just reboot FF.

Some dialog box popped up (I don't recall exactly what the box said, but offered me a choice to CANCEL or CONTINUE. I hit CONTINUE. FF Shut down, and when it reopened a couple of my FF windows were missing, but the toolbar shortcuts were restored.

So, I figured I would restart FF a 2nd time. Well, still missing a few windows. FF session still open.

I am looking at the session files, and trying to determine which session file do I copy, and to where, to try and get old session restored, if I can?

I tried loading the larger 58,175 KB file from 7/16/21, and it crashed the scrounger page.

I am loading a smaller in 56,853 KB file from 10/8/21 (today's date) into your SCROUNGER page, and it has been running for 10 minutes now.

I thought it might be simpler to just copy or rename the correct file (after backing them all up) into the file that will be used after I close, and restart my current FF session & just look and see what FF opens. I just don;t recall which file FF uses for each new startup. Is it recovery.jsonlz4? previous.jsonlz4? something else?

I've uploaded an image, of the screen capture, of a few of my most recently dated session files, in this folder:

I have had Firefox sync since I first downloaded Firefox. Yesterday my computer crashed and needed to be reset. When I downloaded Firefox again, I signed into my sync account. My bookmarks were still there, but my saved logins have disappeared. Because it was a sudden crash, there is no old firefox file on the desktop that was created. I looked in my profiles, like it was suggested in help, and there are two there, but neither one has my saved logins. Apparently sync does not really save your settings in your profile, since they are now gone. Maybe I should look at another browser?

Hi,

Recently whenever I watch any video, wether it'll be on YouTube, Twitter, Reddit etc. my ping will instantly shoot from ~20 to anywhere from 100-200. I have tried everything from restarting it, removing all my extensions etc. and nothing seems to work.

I have tested it and it only happens when a video plays, even if I minimize the browser it will still happen.

What do you suggest I do? Because I can't use my browser for the main reason I use it for.

Thanks.

Hi all, I am the backend developer for a website that our company hosts. I want to have Firefox be fully supported in our site but we are having an issue when we try to redirect from our home page to our SSO okta page.

The error in the console is that it can't find the route to our login endpoint. When I looked into it a bit further I saw that we were getting a 504 gateway timeout while trying to run that section of code.

I know the route exists and works because we have no problems when using Chrome based browsers, and Firefox loads just fine while in private mode.

Any help is appreciated. I will furnish code snippets if needed. I'm just not quite sure how to proceed with figuring out what's going on.

The site is https and we have CORS enabled for it in our Okta server

Any help is appreciated. Please let me know if I haven't provided enough information.

Thanks, Brian O

Hello. Starting yesterday, Firefox has stopped playing audio from every website and even local files. Yes, I read this article and no, the sound is not being muted instead the sound just refuses to play. In the screenshot, it shows that the "play" "mute" and speed option are greyed out. Also, I tried using safe mode and audio still wouldn't play. What should I do?

Hello,

I reinstalled Windows the other day because my PC didn't work anymore. The reinstallation worked but sadly I lost a lot of data because of it, for example my Firefox Bookmark Back Up files from before the 28th of October 2021...

I was sorting my bookmarks and by mistake I imported the bookmarks of 28th of October which I assume was automatically saved.

Now I lost all my bookmarks dating years into my online history.

Is there anyway to get back my bookmarks? Since I am synced and logged into my firefox account I just can't believe everything is gone just because of one button that didn't even ask for confirmation...I am devastated..

Thanks in advance

Why is it so hard to keep cookies and let Firefox delete others? Privacy is the hallmark of Firefox, and yet this simple task is so difficult that I have completely given up. It should be so simple that anyone can do it. Take a look at Cookie Quick Manager which lets you select right off the extension area. With Firefox, I have to dig down into the menus, then actually key in a web site. Fixing this and continuing to enhance cookie management should be top of mind.

Hi,

It was OK for me to download file from a link before, but since a while ago, when I single click on any link (ex., Firefox Installer) it showed nothing and nothing happened (Normally I think dialog about if open or save/when to save should pop up). I also try other way to open the link then: 1. If I try to open a new tab on link, then a empty tab was opened (as attached image). 2. If I right click the link and click "Save Link As..." then it will pop up the save folder selection dialog.

I hope to have any suggestion to fix this issue. Thanks in advance for any support.

Hi all,

When I play (for example) a YouTube or Netflix video in one tab and scroll through social media on another tab and a video shows up and starts playing. The original tab mutes itself (video continues playing). This can only be fixed by pausing and resuming the original video.

Any ideas what may cause this problem?

I'm currently trying to sync my firefox setup onto a laptop i will be using. So I made a firefox account and synced my data on it, but when I sign into the account on my laptop only my bookmarks gets synced while everything else doesn't get synced (password, add on, settings, etc.)

Both firefox browser are running on the same version and up to date, I have no master password set and have made sure that all the content I want synced are ticked in the settings.

As above. I don't really keep track of versions but it's at v93 right now and only this week started to perform extremely slowly with regards to the initial loading of ~90% of the pages I visit, even cached and frequented sites. Once past that it performs as normal. Speedtesting is fine but Browserbench results are horrendous. (This is my first time running this test so I don't have a previous FF result to compare with.)

FF93: 59.497 Chrome95: 119.820 Edge95: 117.970

Already tried: clearing site data and cache, incognito, safe mode, and of course cutting addons to a minimum.

Can someone advise what else can be done or what is going on please? I've been faithful to FF for over a decade and have all my bookmarks, history and credentials saved to this account. However if this is going to be the user experience moving forward - then all I can say is I will not be joining the declining Firefox user base. W10, i5-9400f, 32GB ram, wired CAT6 + 1Gbit Fibre.

I am constantly unable to access websites. My data seems to clog up. I'm in my 70's and have no patience or training for sifting though numerous fixes and possible solutions. I've done my best with no improvement. My husband is having the same issues on his computer. All my previous efforts erase my sign ins and require me to constantly enter new sign in information for my common websites. I can use Safari and Chrome without these issues so unless I get some form of personalized help that doesn't require a great deal of technological skill, I'm leaving this browser greatly disappointed in the lack of support.
