When visiting some smaller and less known websites on my computer it shows the error message "connection has timed out" but on my laptop it loads just fine. Both run firefox and are sync'd with the same configuration and extensions. I already tried the troubleshoot mode and also checked the firewall. Is there anything else I can try to fix this?

Managing Firefox bookmarks has become impossible as of 12/1/23. Browser freezes up and then task manager shows multiple instances of FF open.

No help is available anywhere. Community blames the user, mocks the poster, blames PC configuration when nothing was changed. Only offers impossible to understand instructions. Help topics don't help at all.

Why is Firefox freezing and crashing as of 12/1/23?

Where can one get help?

In the last few weeks I've had problems uploading videos to sites like Meta's Business Suite using Firefox. So I did a little investigation today with a video on Microsoft Edge and Chrome browsers and had no problems uploading using the simple command "Ctrl + O" but it failed on Firefox browser. See pics attached. Whatever improvement you've recently made has totally screwed up my workflow.

Whenever I open Firefox, it opens every tab from my previous session. I don't want this - if I closed the window, it was because I wanted it closed, and I don't need any automated system to re-open everything on the off chance I was wrong. I believe the setting for this is on the General tab, but as you can see in the attached screenshot, it's definitely off, yet the feature won't go away. I also tried changing the config settings, as listed here:

https://askubuntu.com/questions/1285172/firefox-always-restores-windows-and-tabs-after-reboot

, but it had no effect.

How do I stop Firefox opening these tabs without permission?

I have been getting this error message for over a week now, PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR. My internet is fine and I have restarted my computer a few time since the problem started. I have added some sites to the Exceptions list but even then they don't work properly. I have tried refreshing Firefox and changed the profile and they both didn't fix the problem. I am sadly not knowledgeable enough to make sense of the Web Developer Tools. The attached image is what my YouTube page looks like after add the site to the Exceptions list.

No help for this issue:

"Sorry. We’re having trouble getting your pages back.

We are having trouble restoring your last browsing session. Select Restore Session to try again.

Still not able to restore your session? Sometimes a tab is causing the issue. View previous tabs, remove the checkmark from the tabs you don’t need to recover, and then restore."

Why is Firefox freezing up with bookmarks problems and then opening old tabs upon restart. No bookmarks are imported. Firefox is ruined as of 12/1/23.

Instructions are too complex for average user. Help is no help at all. Why no tech support for Firefox browser issues?

Need to clear all previous activity [history, cache, etc.]. I create websites. Do NOT save history. Option turned off. When I bring up a changed website, I see the previous version or the one before that half the time. Rebooting PC does not clear it. Am tired of playing browser roulette, trying to find a browser which will A. Show the latest version. [which is being displayed on other people's devices] B. Perform the desired action as designed by the product creator [which works on other servers and devices, and even sometimes on my device using another browser] I am not skilled at seeing physically thru other people's eyes, only imaginatively. My partner is 200 miles away in another state. We don't always see the same, even when the display is identical. Am starting to create 2 versions of sites, a .org and a .com and explaining to people WHY. I think the "don't save" does not work. It merely turns off creating an index of the viewed material and leaves the viewed material in cache. And re-displays the initial data eveytime, no matter how many updates. Thank you.

Click X (Twitter) link always goes back to previous link when Google Analytics Suppression AddOn installed

Running Firefox 120.0.1 on Windows 10. I also run Vivaldi and test with Chrome. I installed Google Analytics Opt-Out add-ons on FF, Vivaldi, and Chrome. When I go to any site with links to X (Twitter), and click on the link, instead of that link appearing the last X link I went to appears. If I click again I get to the correct link.

When I disable the Google Analytics Opt-Out add-on all works fine. This doesn't happen with either of the Chromium browsers, so I'm thinking there's something happening in Firefox by avoiding Google analytics that isn't in the Chromium browsers. In addition, this behavior began within the past couple of weeks of recent FF updates.

I installed several different Google Analytics add-ons and the same thing happened in FF, but not in the Chromium browsers.

Any ideas? I know I can disable the analytics crushers but I really don't want Google hijacking my browsing.

A website MultiSafepay.com has saved my CVV number in Firefox.

How do I edit the autofill data?

I can't get to the same payment page, to be in a position to delete it.

Most links on this matter refer to:

 Options => Privacy & Security => Forms and Autofill

However in my Version: Firefox 98.0.1 (64 bit) running on an up to date Windows 10 this feature is missing or deprecated.

Can anyone say how I could edit/delete this specific entry, or point me in the direction of where this data is stored?

In the mean time I can't recommend using Firefox for entering critical security data, where websites can allow the storage of CVV numbers.

Hello.

I have two profiles, for separating work and personal tabs/bookmarks/etc. I wanted to update Firefox from 95.0 to 95.0.1 but in both profiles I saw "Firefox is being updated by another instance" in the About Firefox dialog when both were running. So I closed one of them and the other offered me the usual button to update immediately. I did it, restarted that Firefox instance/profile, which restarted normally, but now the second one does not open. Instead, I get the error transcribed above in the subject (see attached screenshot).

So my question is: please, how do I regain access to my second profile without losing that profile's data?

After today's update to version 98 Firefox keeps saving files to the Downloads folder when I don't want it to, I just want to open them, but not keep them, with this new behaviour the Downloads folder keeps filing up with useless clutter.

For example, before the update, when I downloaded a .zip file, a pop-up would show up asking if I wanted to save the file or open it with an application. If I chose to save it it would be saved to the Downloads folder, and if I chose to open it nothing would be saved to the Downloads folder.

After the update, when I download a .zip file, Firefox always saves the file to the Downloads folder, even if I choose to open it.

Can you please tell me if there is a way to make Firefox behave like in the previous version?

Hello, since migrating from Chrome to Firefox, I have used the Import Wizard to successfully transfer over my bookmarks and history, but I just can't seem to get my logins/passwords over. The wizard finishes saying that it successfully imported saved logins and passwords, but nothing shows up in the password manager. I am running Windows 10 64bit and Firefox is up to date. Anybody have any suggestions?

Thanks
