I was using the tree style tabs add-on. Firefox popped up a message about a problem with that add-on, which I unfortunately clicked on, and all my tabs vanished. Now not only do I not have my tree-style tabs, Firefox will not create new tabs at all, and "restore session," or "restore all tabs" does nothing. FWIW, in safe mode, it will still give me standard abs at the top.

The Add-ons page offers me "find alternative add-ons," but will not download the alternative it offered me.

I've been a loyal Firefox user since the very first iteration of Firefox, but this has got me ready to bail and find another browser. Really pissed that it gave me no option to read up on what the problem was before killing all my tabs and refusing to allow me to even make new ones in the standard top tab mode without safe mode. I understand there being a problem with an add-on, but this sort of behavior is beyond the pale.

Anyone encountered this problem? Any solutions beyond changing browsers?

Hello, I have a really annoying problem with Firefox. Many times when I try to access a bank website or similar that I have saved as a favorite, Firefox hangs up and stops responding without indication as to what may be wrong. This can happen when I open Firefox and go to the site before any other or after viewing other sites first. I have to go to the windows task manager and stop the process. After about a minute or two, I can go back, open the browser and log in to the site without any problem.

I have the browser set not to remember history (which is exactly what I want) and using Bitdefender antivurus. I am not sure if this is a common occurrence or if there is a known fix. Problem is becoming annoying enough that I considering not using Firefox any more.

Any help you can provide would be appreciated.

Thank you

On 6-2-2021 the Firefox /browser was automatically updated (errgh!). Now, my tabs are all gone and the History is empty. They were not merely recreational or random. Please help. Thank you in advance!

I think this happens routinely. Can the Mozilla people prevent the problem in the first place? How can I tell the angst they cause their users? I see others begging for help with this problem.

I use the following crossword site:

When I open it with Firefox, including the latest version, the "Help" icons are replaced by mathematical symbols. If I use Microsoft Edge, the Help icons are there.

Any feedback will be appreciated.

Hi all, I have downloaded the new firefox 89. I have always had the Google search text box selected for display on my Firefox page. However, I can no longer enter text into it, all text I enter is re-directed to the firefox URL search box. So what is the point of being able to specify a search engine display on the homepage and how can I change the operation back to what is used to be - and indeed SHOULD be. When you select a text box for input by placing your curser in the box, text should ALWAYS be directed to that cursor position otherwise you have complete mayhem!

I upgraded to Firefox v89/64bit. Now when I open a new tab Firefox forces me to use the address bar for searches. I can't find anything in 'Settings' that will let me change this. Maybe I've missed something obvious. Is there a way to turn this 'feature' off? Thanks in advance for any help provided.

Random pages do not load correctly. Sometimes pictures are obscured by a series of small green boxes or partially or wholly covered by a green box. The text appears in these instances as either pink/purple or garbled. I have checked and rechecked all available help in the support section and followed all the suggestions. I have completely removed and reinstalled Firefox three times.

I'd like to keep Firefox as my primary browser. Please help!

To help test some bugs in Firefox I installed Nightly a while ago alongside the regular Firefox.

Today when starting Nightly, it used the profile I use in the normal release Firefox, for work mostly. I exited almost immediately, but when I try to run the profile with regular Firefox, I get a warning that I'm using an older version of Firefox. See attached screenshot.

Is there a way to recover the profile?

Current FF version I have is 90.0.2 on Windows 64 bit.
