Firefox updated last night (March 2, sometime in the evening). When I finally was able to reopen it, it had gone back to a much older saved bunch of tabs. I had a very crazy day, and had multiple tabs open when I left, that I meant to go back to and finish up with, now they are gone and I can't remember them all. There were also tabs that I know I closed quite a while ago, so it really went back in time. Is there any way to get those tabs from yesterday back? They are not in History under "recently closed," I suppose because Firefox went back to a MUCH older set of things, so it doesn't "remember" them as "closed," because it doesn't "remember" them at all?

Hello, Under about:preferences I went to applications. Under mailto there were references to Yahoo and Gmail which I deleted. Now then when I click on an email address link on a webpage the mailto menu pops up like it always has but Yahoo and Gmail are no longer listed as email options. How do I get those links back? Firefox is listed as the default option but because there are no links to webmail services there is no way to send an email from that menu. Sincerely, MKH

A few web sites I've ordered from for many years have been getting annoyingly buggy, to the point where I've had to resort to phone or chat to get the order through. Issues have included not accepting the security code on a credit card, changing the order or price when it shows in the cart, suddenly disappearing the payment page... Etc. Some of this is (I think) just recent silly software changes (maybe). When I ask what the problem is, customer service rep asks what browser I use; when I say Firefox, they indicate they're optimized for/more familiar with Edge or Chrome. Is this something other users are running into? Can't believe it's just me.....Guessing you might be able to get some hints from what's below?

Thanks......

I have a current version of Firefox (v123.0 running on Windows 10) but I can't do what I used to be able to do? (And it is making me nuts!)

I used to be able to resize the contents of a site - such as youtube or wordpress or tumblr - there would be a little % on the far right of the URL bar, and I could adjust that until the site was readable and all the pieces I wanted fit in. I can't find a control that will change this for me in the new version. Is it somewhere else? Did that control not port into the new version? Is is gone for good? (I really hope not!) I realize this is such a small problem, but it affects how I interact with basically every site online.

What makes this extra frustrating is that I'm not even certain I am using the correct terms for the thing I want -

Thank you for your patience -

Hello,

When I type a letter in the URL space, there is a drop down selection of previous sites I have used. Some contain names of people I have searched and I don't want any embarrassment if said persons happen to use my PC. Is it possible to delete the list, or, perhaps better, delete the ones with names?

I'm using Windows 10 with FF x64.

Thanks.

It only backs up the tabs from your last close, so if you had a problem and closed twice, all your tabs are gone. There are many many easy ways to change it so this can never happen to people anymore. Why has this not been fixed after all this time? I am a retired IT pro and this has even happened to me. It is horrible. What can users do to not have this happen, since the developers apparently can't be bothered? And please don't tell me not to keep so many tabs open JUST because the browser sucks at protecting them. Any good news appreciated. Thanks.

A couple of weeks ago I migrated from Edge to Firefox. I exported and imported my bookmarks. All was good. Suddenly this morning, my bookmarks are inoperative. The folder structure is there, containing entries that appear to be my bookmarks. If I left-click on one, nothing happens. If I right-click on one and choose Edit Bookmark, the fields in the dialogue are all empty.

I was on a teams meeting because I wanted to do a study session with someone on another country. As part of the homework I needed to do, I needed to listen to some audio. I changed my windows audio devices to output through the Communications device for the headset. Then I played the audio on a tab. The audio played for a few seconds before stopping again.

I understand that this is behaviour intended to let you take a call or meeting without having to manually pause any open tabs you might not have at hand, but I would like Firefox to understand I really want that audio to play without thinking it knows better. Is there any way to disable this behavior?

I wouldn't have to do this except that somehow, a Bookmark folder disappeared. All too often is has occurred. I have many, many very important Bookmarks. How can I get them back---and soon?

It used to be that all ticked device settings in Edit Mode, standard and custom, are selectable in Web Developer Tools / Responsive Design Mode. Before, the cursor, indicated by the blue outlined box as shown in the attached screen shot, wraps around the list of devices to show the other hidden device settings. But now, the cursor just wraps but the values in the list do not adjust to show the other device setting that are available to be selected.

I don't know if I unknowingly, did something that triggered the lost functionality mentioned above.

How could I restore this lost functionality so that I could test my website in all the device settings that I have checked in the Edit mode?
