Scrounger shows the file is valid, I've deleted all the other sessionstores, including backups. I replace the file while Firefox is closed, open Firefox and see the file get loaded/disappear as it should, but Firefox does not load that session into the restore function. Running 56.0.2 and the recovery file is compressed.

I have kept FF v. 56.0.2 because of certain add-ons that I have come to rely upon. That version is shared by all users. However, I would like to add the newest version for a second user. How can I install the current version for only the second user without affecting v 56.0.2 for the primary user?

What can I do top prevent this ?

I have an older browser, which I DO NOT want to update, as it's the last one that works with all my add-ons and bookmarks. But, even though I went in and checked the boxes to allow Studies, I am getting no information at all when I go to the about: studies page. I only see a box with, "What's this? Firefox may install and run studies from time to time. Learn more".

This has been going on for hours. No fix is showing up, much less installing, and my browser is utterly borked. Can I get the studies manually somewhere? Help would be appreciated.

I am a developer of Firefox extensions and have had a Mozilla developer account for over 15 years. For some reason, I can no longer login to that account. When attempting to login, I get a message to "Confirm your account". The displayed email address is correct, but I never receive the conformation email. I've check my junk and trash folders and even have a filter setup to accept all emails from "accounts@firefox.com", but I still never get the conformation email. I tried setting up a new account and that works, but I cannot access my developer dashboard with the new account.

I got a bogus 'Tax Refund' email and lazily looked for a way to block the sender before marking it as SPAM. I right-clicked the sender address and the right-click menu offered an option to "Block this domain" - which looked perfect. After clicking that option a message came up saying I'd blocked the domain of my own email account instead of the domain of the spam host. Now, I can't find the block list to remove the email host name.

Please help

Royal Games has tournaments where you have three or four chances to improve your score, then you're rated by your top score. For the last month, when I play a tournament for the first time, at the end of the game it says I have used all my chances to improve my score. I have cleared my cache, re-installed Adobe Flash. I do not have that problem when I use Microsoft Edge. I cannot play at all using Chrome because it keeps telling me to install Adobe Flash, which, as I said, is already installed. Is the problem with Firefox or with Royal Games? I don't know what else to do.

I am currently running Windows 7, and Firefox ver. 56.0, 32 bit. When I try and update Firefox, I updates to version 63.x.xx, and everything works fine. Then when I shutdown and start my computer later, or restart my computer, it boots to my profile name, but it logs me on as a guest. I have the only profile on the computer and I am an administrator. I basically have a bare minimum desktop and it will not let me open or change any files. It also won't let me save any files that I create. I found that I can fix my computer's boot issue, by performing a "system restore" to a point before I tried to update Firefox. Any suggestions, or is this a problem with my Windows 7 installation.

Hallo,

My previous thread was archived, but further regression has occurred so I'll bring it up here again as feature requests are down. I'm still using 56 one reason being that there are separate control options for the start page and the home page. I like to start with a blank page, but have the home button available for my #1 destination. The current version of firefox combines start and home pages, thus taking away my options to separate these elements. For a while it wasn't in the GUI, but you could fix it in the about:config (which was my previous "solution"), but with the latest updates this has been removed as well.

How do I get separate start and home pages? If I could assign a value to the home icon that didn't affect the start page, that would work too.

         Tak!

If you are asked to debug a program by someone in an email and get a notice that an incoming request was detected from Client endpoint 127.0.0.1:65323 server endpoint 127.0.0.1:6080, is that from your own system or from someone on the net.? There is a warning the browser could be taken in control by remote client. Is the person connecting to one of the ports and using the other to access your pc. Or is it all on your own network?
