The subject line says it, really: though "Restore previous session" is still ticked in Options, a reboot presented me with just my homepage tabs. Is this, as I hope, an inadvertent bug or a design decision?

I'm using a desktop PC running Windows 7. Many thanks.

I use the browser-integrated snipping/screen-shot tool constantly. Today I discovered that it is no longer available from the three dot menu in the address bar. Why? Can it be restored? Has it been relocated? Discontinued? This is one of the primary features that I rely on in Firefox.

When marking student scripts, I download and open a large number of files in a day. So I want it to be easy. But Firefox does not deliver what it promises. I want to click on the file link on the teaching website and the file to open automatically. But everytime I have to navigate to click in a dialog box in order to open the file. Is there any way to get Firefox to do what is says "Do this automaticall..."?

As far as I can see, these are bog standard .pdf, .docx and .doc files.

Introduction So I learned the hard way to never run sudo apt remove python3 on an ubuntu system. I'm running Linuxlite (Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS) on a dell desktop (unsure of the model).

The Problem After looking at some guides and upgrading the operating system, I managed to get most of the fonts to display correctly. Sites with certain kinds of text still appear to be "too bold" (see images).

""What I've tried"" The command actually removed Mozilla, so I had to reinstall it. Updating it also didn't fix the problem. I have messed around with the font settings and nothing changed. It seems that only Mozilla is doing this because the Brave browser displays the fonts correctly. Other than that, I haven't really done all that much. Also the font as I write this is normal.

Thanks for your consideration!

I'm honestly now sure how best to explain this because it's kind of weird, but I will try my best. Basically, Firefox thinks there's two windows open, when really there is only one. When I right click on the Firefox logo in my Dock (I'm on Mac), it tells me I have two windows open, the main window I use and then a second "What's new with Firefox" window (see screenshot). This is the "invisible" window. I have tried many things to get Firefox to realize that window doesn't exist. I've quit Firefox many times, tried to get my Mac to display all windows (it says there are no open windows when I close out of my main window), restarted my Mac, cleared cache and cookies, removed from Dock, etc. At this point, I don't know what's left to do other than remove Firefox entirely and re-install it and I would hate to do that. I hope I've provided enough detail to get the gist of the issue. If you need any more info, I'm happy to provide it! Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello,

Ever since I used 'Refresh' to solve a problem, I now have to sign into all my regular sites, like YouTube, FaceBook and especially Twitter, where I receive a warning every time I sign in. (See attachment).

To clarify: before the Refresh, I could just bring up these sites and be automatically signed in. My computer remembers the sign in names and passwords, but I still have to go through the process, and with Twitter, I'm getting these warnings, which has caused that site to ask for more info to verify my identity.

So: why am I coming up as a 'new user' every time I want to go to sites I've been going to for years?

Thank you,

John

Tried to sign into Firefox Reality today, wanted to send an email for verification, but I never got it. Tried signing into Firefox Android, same thing, no email received to login. So I logged into my Mozilla account using Chrome on my phone. Got in fine. I can see the recent login attempts in history.

So I try and add a secondary email, which first, wants me to verify my email, which I'm still not getting...

I have used this email for Mozilla since 2016, no problem. Looks like the last email from Mozilla I got was from 3/23/21. I wonder if they are blocking my domain unintentionally or something. I use my own domain for email - protonus.ws - and I fully control the email on it. Yes I checked my spam folder. Searched the server, last thing from Mozilla was 3/23. Anyone know who I can contact to see what's up?

Только в браузер FireFox происходят проблемы с изменениями шрифтов при отображении информации и отображением картинок. Проблема не статична, а динамична (картинка одна и та же может нормально отобразится а может быт в артефактах). в Chrome и Opera таких проблем нет. OS Windows переустановил, браузер поставил заново - проблема осталась.

Firefox icon gone from taskbar and desktop and I can't get it back

As the subject says. I can still search for the firefox app and open it that way or I can start it from the START page that comes up when I hit the windows key on the keyboard. But I am not allowed to drag and drop it onto the taskbar as it says it's already there. It's sorta there I guess because FF is open right now while I type this and this open tab is indicated on the taskbar. If I were to close the FF window there would be no FF logo on the taskbar.

Right clicking the firefox app in the start list that comes up when I left click on the windows icon in the lower left or hit the windows key on my keypad gives me options to unpin FF from the start page or unpin it from the taskbar. I don't want to do that.

I did something to mess this up and I can't fix it. I want the FF logo back on my taskbar so when I power up the machine I can click on the logo in the taskbar to get to the browser with all my previously open tabs back.

The latest Windows 10 a Lenovo yoga laptop if it matters.

Thanks
