Just refresh my computer, new install of Firefox, but all of my Bookmarks were missing, a collection of 25 years, all gone. Tried to sync with my XP computer, where the originals were, but it too was empty. Found JSONLZ4 files, two of them, one dated today and one dated yesterday. Both empty, is there any way to recover all those bookmarks?

Several weeks ago, because it seemed to be a Gmail-tab-only problem, Firefox Support advised us to contact Gmail Support.

It is now clear that the problem is with the Firefox browser. The attached screenshot shows an example of an affected tab.

Please fix this. Multiple versions of the same tab waste RAM and other memory, especially on a limited-memory device such as a laptop.

I have Brisbane Times (BT) as my home page on Firefox (which is my main browser). Since I installed the latest version of FF, I have to login manually (not automatically) to BT and having done so when I close an article it logs me out of BT. Firefox asks of if I want to make FF my home browser. I see that BT is one of my saved logins but this logging out etc is something that did not happen with the older version of FF. So please how do I permanently make FF my home browser and how do I get it to remember my login on BT when I flick between articles?

Hello! Something in my Firefox installation seems to be making several Google network (google.com / forcesafesearch.google.com / www.youtube-nocookie.com / m.youtube.com, and a couple of others) calls shortly after launch. I have a DNS sinkhole, so that is how I can see.

I have a few reputable extensions (or should be, from EFF, Firefox itself, or Ublock Origin), but it also happens in safe mode. I went through a good chunk of this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-stop-firefox-making-automatic-connections and still the calls occur

I am on Windows 10, with FF v93.

Thanks very much!

After creating a new Windows User account and switching back to original account, I lost ALL of my Quick Access Bookmarks! Then I did a Bookmark Restore using the most recent saved Bookmark file and I lost around 64,050 bookmarks!!! Now, the latest saved Bookmark file lists 5 items. This is a ridiculous and a very serious issue!!!

What is going on? I spend a lot of time getting important Bookmarks for research, and etc. How can I get all of my Bookmarks back? Apparently, I cannot get them all back. See attached file.

Hi all

I would like some help if possible please. When I start Windows 10 on my laptop and I open Firefox I open two separate windows (personal and professional) and then I open a pre detirmined set of tabs in each window to start my day.

Is there a way I can press open Firefox and I can have 2 windows open with all my pre set tabs?

Is this possible? If not, how close can I come to this?

Thanks,

I've been having an interesting problem with Firefox for the past couple of months regarding only Soundcloud, where after the first visit to the website it won't load, giving a generic "Sorry! Something went wrong" screen. Firefox will continue to not load the site correctly until I clear the cookies and the cache, which works but only for one visit, and as soon as I close the tab and open soundcloud again or refresh the tab the problem comes back. I have disabled all of my extensions as well as enhanced tracking protection when testing. A firefox refresh also did not solve the problem. The only way I can get the site to behave normally is when using private browsing.

The console is filled with errors regarding javascript files (source URI is not allowed in this document).

Thanks

Howdy, fellow Firefox aficionados.

I'm running FF on a Windows 10 Home 64-bit desktop. Some time ago, I suddenly could no longer open Firefox because it couldn't find my Profile. So, I attempted to create a new one, but it would not allow me to do so.

"Changes Not Saved"

   "An unexpected Error has prevented your changes from being saved."

[See uploaded Image]

More than likely, either I, or one of my system maintenance programs wiped some data or folder. I have deleted Firefox and reinstalled it with the latest version, but this dilemma persists.

Thanks for reading my post and if you reply, a big Thanks!

I wonder if this was due to hardware or software error? I recently renewed some computer parts.

Firefox doesnt load websites all of a sudden on my windows10 machine. I type a new website address and it just stays on the same site i was in. I try a new tab but no use.

I have reset firefox and still it does not work. 94.0.01(64-bit version) is what i am running.
