Lost power. Computer shut down. Reopened Firefox and no passwords. Looked in profile and there are 4 files logins.json.corrupt (149 kb) all created today at same time and 1 file logins.json (2 kb). I ASSUME my passwords are in the 149KB json file? If I delete logins.json (2kb) and rename one of the 149KB to logins.json, when I reopen firefox, it just does it again: renames logins.json to logins.json.corrupt (149kb) and creates a new logins.json (2kb). Is there anyway to recover these passwords? Windows 7 Latest version of firefox

Thanx

Ever since doing a refresh of FF two days ago, Yahoo mail doesn't work. I'm able to log in but contacts are missing and I cannot refresh the page without getting "The page isn’t redirecting properly." To log back in I have to either shut down FF (my settings are to clear cookies on shutdown) or clear cache or history every 5 minutes. I have not changed my extensions or other FF settings I had before the refresh. I have cleared cookies, cleared cache, added yahoo to the cookie exceptions list and nothing helps.

Thank you.

I access a CCTV Network Video Recorder on the same private/LAN that I'm on using an PC via HTTPS. It's been working fine for nearly a year. Recently it won't access via HTTPS any more with the Error Message "Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to 192.168.1.30. Certificate key usage inadequate for attempted operation. Error code: SEC_ERROR_INADEQUATE_KEY_USAGE

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the web site owners to inform them of this problem."

I've contacted the vendor but they seem at a bit of a loss. I can connect using HTTP, and an Android App (spit) still works too. I did find a Stack Overflow article from 2020 mentioning a possible corrupt cert9.db and/or cert_override.txt files, but as it's so old I wanted to ask for further advice before I start hacking things around. On another PC using the same browser version on the same network I get the attached response, not the same as the one I get and it will allow me to accept the risk. Can anyone help please?

HI! I posted earlier about problems accessing websites after updating the browser to 115.2.0 esr. Earlier in the day I had accessed these websites with no problems .... now after the update installed, shopify is trying to validate whether I am a human and verify the browser. Resulting in an endless loop of identifying myself as a human and it trying to validate the browser.

Hopefully you can help. I know this may be a Microsoft issue or question but I'm having trouble in finding a reasonable way to contact them for help. My question is, my computer runs slow, and so I thought I would clean up my files by using the Microsoft disk clean up procedure. I did so. But, my specific question is what is a good number to have when the it says a given number of disk space can be cleaned up? For example, I believe when I first tried to clean the disk it said 5.1 GB of disk space could be cleaned. When I ran the disk clean process and it completed it then said 66 KB of disk space could be cleaned. So how much disk space did I gain or get cleaned up? And, if I can only clean up 66 KB of disk space is that indicative of not really needing to clean the disk any farther? Hopefully some one can help. While this may be a Microsoft issue, I believe the Firefox contributors have enough computer knowledge to help answer my question. At least that is my hope. Thank you.

Hi Everyone, My Bank has suddenly decided that ALL cookies must be allowed before letting their customers in -- a requirement with which I wholly disagree. My FireFox is set to block anything that moves, and supported by Ad Blockers and Ublock too. Is there a way in which I can configure FF to allow me into the Bank site without having to change my "secure" settings every time? I am no computer genius - so please make it simple for me.

Thanks everyone.

Hi, I have spent hours this morning trying to diagnose a problem with Firefox Update 115. It is Unstable and I can't Stream Music from Youtube or even Amazon Music. Web pages from sites I use everyday are out of order when displaying text as well. It's a real mess. Now, here's the kicker, I haven't been able to stream my music from both aforementioned websites, but get this, if I use the Incognito Browser, Music streams No Problem. Seems like you guys broke something in the main FF browser. I have spent hours trying to debug this and have concluded that your most recent Update has broken streaming links. I can't rollback the Update and that is even more frustrating. Please Fix This. BTW, your Help Pages really stink. Sorry, but they offer no help when the problem is clearly FF. Kind Regards, Joe White

Firefox is set to remember history, but every time I close it and re-open it, links in websites that once had purple text is now back to white, so I don't know what link I'm on, Firefox remembers this through history saved, why does it reset back to white text? Does it have something to do with bitdefender or bitdefender VPN? Can anyone else test thie out with firefox and bitdefenders full security on? Firefox is set to save everything by the way. Only started happening after installing bitdefender.

How do I remove pocket from Firefox?

The published solution does not work. When I type "about:config" in the URL, then "pocket," and change the "extensions.pocket.enabled" to "false," the pocket page still shows up after I close a session or a screen asking me to sign in to pocket. I am always closing unnecessary pocket related tabs.

As I remember, one time it worked but only for two days and then the some form of the pocket page showed up again.

Restarting Firefox does not change anything. Please advise.

Hello,

I am desperately trying to recover lost tabs from Firefox Browser after 2 crashes, freezing and forced shutdowns. I need the tabs for my work, and as usually happens, this has occurred at a time when I'm running to meet a critical deadline.

I've tried going to history, but the "recently closed tabs" option was greyed out:-( I've tried searching for other solutions, but cannot fine any that fit my situation. I'm not an IT expert - I know my way around what I need to use (i.e. professional worker), so clear & simple explanation would be much appreciated.

Can I recover the lost tabs from backed up data or a previous system image? My system is Windows 7, and I'm currently running Firefox version 115.0.2. All suggestions welcome!

Thanking you in anticipation off prompt assistance, MLH
