Hey, I'm using the restore previous session feature. Its really helpful, but I assume since the last update it is not working properly. Whenever I use the private firefox browser (window) parallel to the normal one (window) and close the normal browser before the private one, my last active session of the normal browser is not restored.

When I close the private firefox window before the normal firefox browser window everything works fine with restoring the tabs.

Any way around? And please fix this annoying bug. Thanks!

On multiple websites I visit, picture in picture happens automatically when I scroll past a video or click another section of a page. I find it highly annoying and distracting. I would like to disable it completely. How do I do this? I'd appreciate an answer that isn't too technical. Thanks.

Restore Last Session - But not if I close last tab

I searched this forum but couldn't find an answer. I have "restore last session" turned on, but I'd like Firefox wouldn't reopen my last visited site after I close the browser by closing the last tab. In other words: if I close the browser by a regular means (by clicking the rightmost upper X, or by right-clicking the taskbar and choosing close window) it goes to the last viewed site when I reopen the browser – and that's ok – but when I close the last tab and the browser closes, I don't want to see this site again when I reopen Firefox. Is there a way to achieve this? By the way, this is the standard behavior in Google Chrome.

Hi Guys and Girls,

For the love of all that is keeping me alive at the moment please help solving the issue of spell checker not working.

I have a new MacBook Pro and setup Firfox by installing it and siging in to sync.

The spell checker does not underline the words as I type here or in Google or WhatsApp Web.

Also when I right click no language opion appears.

I does work in Gmail for some weird reason.

After follwing a suggestion of installing an add-on dictionary and resarting Firefox, no change came about.

See attached for more...

Thanks in advance for your help.

For the Send websites a "Do Not Track" signal that you don't want to be tracked, one of the options is "Only when Firefox is set to block known trackers".

How do I set Firefox to block known trackers? How do I set Firefox to not block known trackers?

Is having Enhanced Tracking Protection ON the same thing as having Firefox set to block known trackers? So if I turn OFF Enhanced Tracking Protection, Firefox will no longer be set to block known trackers?

I have no that is no computing knowledge--none. So I need very explicit instructions (imagine you're talking to your grandma):

This is what FF tells me is happening: policies.json

{
 "policies": {
   "AppAutoUpdate": true | false
 }

} And in poking around in the files on my computer, I did find this in the folder that holds Firefox. How do I reset it, so that I can update?

If anyone wants to walk me through this (reaaaal slow) --you will surely be rewarded with amazing karma bumps!!

Youtube rented video does not play after purchased. "Licensing error message" after hitting play button. Firefox 95.0b12 is supposed to work. Have latest updates... why won't it work? Seems Firefox/Modzilla not going to fix ongoing issue with rented Youtube/Netflix video rental problem. Is there a fix? Linux user.

Thank you for trying to help me, but many of the suggestions and explanations are dead ends because I cannot get them to work. I cannot get the latest version 95 of Firefox to update despite repeatedly trying to follow the directions, and updating is not occurring "automatically" as stated in all of the problem solving descriptions. When I get certain instructions, it refers me to a "Settings" button, which does not appear/exist on my toolbar(s). This latest inquiry is related to my original question about "licensing" issues error message when trying to view Youtube rented video's. Also, how do you go about updating a Widevine setting, mine is currently 4.10.1582.2. and needs updating. Please help me, I would like to learn how this stuff works, I appreciate any help.
