On every boot ff69 opens two windows, one empty and one with opened tabs, every time i manually close the empty window. Next boot it reopens it. Same with laptop. On occasion if i close the window on laptop it'll only open main window on desktop on next boot. But this might only happen once and next boot the second window starts opening again for no reason. How do i make ff stop opening two windows on boot?

I'm having a lot of trouble with the URL autocomplete function not working. I have been trying to solve this for a couple days and nothing is working to enable the URL autocomplete. Here are some of the things I have tried - does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks so much!

-Made sure the browser.urlbar.autoFill item is set to 'true' -Adjusted Firefox History settings to 'Remember History' -Adjusted Firefox Address Bar settings (Browsing History, Bookmarks, and Open Tabs are checked) -Cleared cache and cookies -Reset Firefox several times -Reinstalled Firefox (without deleting profile and Firefox data)

I have attached screenshots of how my 'about:config' looks, as well as the 'Important Modified Preferences,' in case there's an error that someone else can catch.

(I am running Firefox 68.0.2 on macOS Mojave Version 10.14.5)

I recently copied my Old Firefox profile to another folder and refreshed my Firefox Dev Edition browser. After refreshing, I copied all of the content of my old Firefox profile to the new default profile and then started the browser. Upon starting it, the browser was working with all of my previous add-ons. But whenever I close the browser and open it again, the icons of the add-ons at the overflow menu are not showing though there is space for the add-ons. Whenever I click at the add-ons, the error that 'Access to file was denied' - `The file at moz-extension://b408b31d-945f-43cb-881e-b1f4071942b6/index.html is not readable` shows up. I tried it with creating other profile folders and then copying my old profile data but it still always happens.

Any help?

Firefox will not play any type of audio. There's no indication of audio being played in Firefox in the soundmixer either. Audio works perfectly fine in all other applications. Steps I've already taken to try and solve the issue:

- Reinstall audio drivers - Remove cache, cookies and browser history - Refresh Firefox (remove addons / reset settings) - Reinstall Firefox - Rebooting system in between those steps

I've made sure my audio devise is set as default obviously.

I am used to having 30+ tabs open in Firefox. When I close and then reopen Firefox, they're all there.

Until yesterday. Now only a half-dozen or so appear. I THINK they're the first half-dozen from my previous session.

Also, I can't find a way to restore the previous session. That option is not in my Menu. My History has lots of previously used tabs, but I can't find the ones I want ... especially the ones I haven't actually used for some time.

I recently bought a new PC which forced me to "upgrade" from Windows 7 to Windows 10. I don't think that's the problem, though. Firefox installed fine and worked fine on the new computer until I powered down a couple of days ago -- then powered back up and restarted Firefox....

I'm not aware of having upgraded to a new Firefox, unless that happened automatically.

I saw a Q&A from Martha that seemed relevant. But she uses a Mac, and I'm on a PC. Also, I didn't understand and couldn't begin to follow the recommendations she was given. I'm a 75-year-old IT ignoramus. I really need very simple step-by-step instructions ... or somebody to take over my computer and solve the problem for me ... or I guess I could wait till one of my grandchildren knows how to help....

In a nutshell, I have two problems: 1. Firefox is no longer restoring all my tabs when I reopen it. 2. I can't find "Restore previous session" to restore my tabs manually.

Thanks!

--Peter

So when I try to visit archive.org or its wayback machine, I get "Secure Connection Failed" Two widgets are offered: a tickbox for reporting issues and a [Try Again] button. Your Help says to click on the [Advanced] button but there isn't one.

Before anybody gives me a lesson in online security, I would ask that you focus on your usability issue and not my personal habits, thanks.

Firefox won't keep me signed in to anything, even though I've selected to remain signed in via websites' preferences and it has always kept me signed in before. Every time I relaunch Firefox, I have to sign in to my two homepages (Yahoo and Fark), even though the passwords are stored in Firefox, and they auto-fill in the appropriate slots. This happens with all other pages I've tried, even the Firefox help forum itself.

I've reset Firefox, I've cleared all my passwords (and re-entered a few of them) to make sure they are correct, and still no luck. I removed u-Block origins, thinking maybe it was causing it, but it's still happening even without u-Block installed.

Straightforward issue I just noticed.

For some reason I cannot delete some of my bookmarks. Whenever through bookmark icon/manager. With right click context menu delete, delete keyboard button, or "bookmark remove" from shortcut.. etc.

It just doesn't function. I can move those "frozen" bookmarks around in folders and such, but I simply cannot delete them.
