Hello

I love Firefox but for the past couple of days, the Restore button has disappeared and ALL my saved tabs are gone. Ehy?

I takes me forever to reestablish my (many) tabs by memory and past articles I had saved to read later.

Can you PLEASE restore the Restore ability? It saves me tons of time.

Thank you

Alain

Firefox has not been saving my passwords and every time I open it, it opens 2 tabs welcoming me to Firefox. This has been happening for about 2 months. I'll save something and then the next time I open the browser, it acts like it's the first time. I do have an "Old Firefox Data" folder but when I go to the profile section it shows a million profiles and I'm not sure how to sync my old stuff and have Firefox actually remember it.

I'm not sure if this is considered a bug or not, since it is bad coding. But, it is inconsistent with other browsers... When our company website was "upgraded" last year, they didn't fix some old links. One set of pages include code that looks like this:

<style type="text/css">html {filter: url(#normal); -webkit-filter: url(#normal); -moz-filter: url(#normal); -o-filter: url(#normal); -ms-filter: url(#normal); }</style>

The coding error here, is that the image filter isn't being applied to an SVG, but rather the whole html page. This is why I'm not sure if it would be considered a bug in Firefox or not. Chrome based browsers seem to ignore the bad code. Firefox applies the non-existent #normal filter to the html element (the whole page), resulting in a completely blank page.

I did report the bad code to my company, but I doubt they will fix it - they currently suggest Chrome (which took them forever to do), but still require Internet Explorer for one specific config page.

note: this isn't an extension issue. I tested it in Firefox's safe mode. It applies to both Firefox for Windows and Firefox for Android.

Despite what all the articles say, I much prefer reading on my desktop to my phone, so I find it peculiar that the Firefox reading list I've got going on iOS is nowhere to be found on desktop. Seems like plenty of people have asked about this in the past. Would really love this feature to be added soon!

Hi,

I noticed that after most Microsoft updates (which are too many and very annoying), I cannot open my "live.com" e-mails within FireFox. The e-mails remain stuck on "Load" and just will not open. This has happened before and there was no solution apparently. The last time it happened, the system reset itself (not sure when, or how) but it took several months for this to happen.

Is this a common issue and is there an 'easy' solution? My version of FireFox is up to date and I have not tweaked any of the privacy or security options. Interestingly, I noticed that I can open my e-mails using Microsoft Edge, but not using FireFox.

Thank you in advance! I am sure this will happen again and I'd like to find out if there is a solution that I can resort to next time this happens (assuming of course that the issue is related to the same cause).

I received an email from Firefox Monitor <breach-alerts@mozilla.com> about a data breach. When I click the "Go to Dashboard" link, it opens URL https://accounts.firefox.com/oauth/signin?client_id=8... My email is prefilled. There is NO password field to complete. But when I click "Sign in", it simply reloads the exact same page. Same thing happens in a private window. Any thoughts?

I couldn't find a Product Support Forum for Firefox Monitor.

Firefox Monitor just notified me that my email appeared in a new data breach. I clicked on the "Go To Dashboard" button and was taken to a sign-in page entitled "Sign In / Continue to Firefox monitor." When I click on the blue "Sign in" button, the page simply refreshes. I can't sign in.

Suggestions?
