Hello... EVERY time I try to sign into my Yahoo email, I have to go through hoops to actually get there. When I click the box that says ...never ask on this device again, your system ignores it. This "Added Security" is not helpful. nor is it adding any security to anything. All you are doing is making me look for other web browsers. Google Chrome does not do this. Safari does not do this. Opera does not do this. I do not need to be contacted via text message, OR ANY OTHER WAY, to gain access to MY email account. Stop holding me hostage!!

Please tell me how to get rid of this absolutely horrible "feature."

Latest FF set NOT to restore previous session, but does so anyway

Firefox (FF) 103.x has been set in Settings NOT to restore automatically the previous session-- ie. the check-box in Settings for startup is empty/clear. Yet, FF autoloads the previous session, anyway, after about 45 to 60 seconds.

Put another way, FF does not follow my instructions for the item left clear in Settings.

In the typical FF startup, immediately after loading FF, the screen is empty of tabs provided by the application I normally use, named Tree Style Tabs. The screen should stay that way until I decide to load the previous session. On checking the FF top menu, I find Restore Previous Session is in BOLD, which means the previous session can be restored at my discretion. That is the way I prefer FF to operate.

Yet, 45-60 seconds later after FF startup, the FF screen flashes, and the previous session loads. When I check the top menu, the Load Previous Session item is no longer in boldface type.

As a test, I cleared the stack of tabs by closing each tab except one, and restarted FF. As usual, the single tab auto-loaded 45-60 seconds after starting FF. Under Settings, the Load Previous Session item was no longer in boldface type (since it had loaded, already).

This isn't a question about the "Multi-Account Containers" addons, I am pretty sure that there was a section called "Container tabs" in the privacy and security settings, and I could use containers without installing an addon some days ago.

I can still access by directly viewing this address

about:preferences#containers

But I can't find it in the settings, and this feature does no longer work.

So I went to read recent release notes from Firefox 100 to 101.0.1, but I didn't find any notes to say this feature has been disabled. Could this be an unexpected result of an update?

Hello to all members of Firefox team. In the place we live, the ISPs all turned on safe search mode for users without their satisfaction. All we can do is turn that off. But in the Firefox we can't do that. Please let us know how to turn it off with a Firefix to Firefox.

Resources (JS, images, etc) only partially load unless bypassing cache after Firefox v100.0.2 update?

When I load a page the first time, everything loads normally. Then if I refresh the page with CTRL-R, resources on the page (such as .js files) very often (seemingly 75% of the time) only partially load and therefore parse errors occur in the console. To reload a page, I have to hit CTRL-SHIFT-R to bypass cache and then the page loads normally again. I can also just launch the page in a private window (this loads properly), close the window and launch it again in another private window (this loads perfectly still) but it's becoming a chore to juggle with private windows only to reload a page I'm working on. I can see the resources loaded under the NETWORK tab in the console but they don't seem to be available to the page renderer or something.

Is this a bug in v100.0.2 or was I only having a bad weekend and all of this is just a random glitch that will go away soon? I've never had a problem like this with any previous Firefox releases (even v100.0) and I've used FF for approximately 15 years. It immediately began to happen after the v100.0.2 update!

What I have done so far:

- Exit out of Firefox and launch it again. - Rebooted the computer. - Site Information > Clear Cookies & Site Data - Waited 2 days for another FF release in case this was a bug and it rapidly got fixed (no update rolled out since). - Help > More Troubleshooting Information > Clear Startup Cache

Am I going crazy or?

I currently have like 40 windows and a few hundred of tabs opened from when the bookmark star was not working after updates. I have found it too difficult to organize my current filing system ever since they stopped the drag and drop feature. I want to type in more than the first letter to find a file or folder. I want to type in a word - have those FOLDERS only come up to chose from with that word in their titles..but alas no field to do so. The Organize page is hard to find - below the options as a postscript on the ff options submenu. Once there - it doesn't bring up just folders in one box and the files that you want to organize in another box and the ability to drag them into the right folder. Instead it brings up only misc files in no particular order. I can't work with that for type of job. This is more for finding a file I think - alone. So -that's why I left so many files up. Not my normal way to do things - I would file them then close all windows down empty - or maybe just what I was working on still up. Not my question. My question is just what was in the title bar. That's all. Thanks. Oh I know the setting is there to have them open at start up or not. Question is is I say no - will they be deleted? I know you can click on "restore prior session" from the ff menu after history. (altho I can't see it - poss bec I opened with prior session. ) I basically want access to SEE my prior session windows/tabs without opening them until I CLICK on them to activate them. I want to see the TITLE of the links basically "off-line" and decide if I want to go there and work or not one by one - NOT to "restore all" or not. And if you don't restore previous session on your subsequent session - and logoff/shutdown. Is the prior session lost for your "3rd session and forward"? does it only save the very last session? say i had 40 windows open. chose not to open them auto next session - via settings. AND i never opened them all for that subsequent session. What happens to those 40 windows the next time? Are they unsaved? Since i never opened them - say only used the new blank windowtab to check the weather. closed the link shut down. That session had no windows or tabs left open but the home page = next session should have no windows or tabs saved in the ff menu underneath the history by how it is said. There is no clarification. It's a big deal to just try it - and lose 300 tabs I need to look at and favorite through. Get me? I hope it's clear. I feel you only need the title bar but it wouldn't allow so I felt I had to elaborate. PLS help. I have to clean up to do MS OS upgrades, backups, I have partions, gotta read up so this thing has to be fixed first. Plus auto opening/connecting to links on all those tabs at start up is interferring with updates bec they happen at the same time - badddd news. Thanks all!

I tried printing in FIREFOX while using PDF and receipts from Amazon and HP. each time the fonts are HUGE, but not if I use Chrome or Edge. Tried your suggestions and that didn't help. I see another user has had the same exact issue with no avail. I'd really like to get this issued fixed. I like FIREFOX and want to use it whenever possible, but being unable to print makes it a problem. I would appreciate a real solution. Thank you in advance, Alan.

firefox profile folder copy paste to usb HDD says source path too long

Hi, I am removing SSD C drive win 7 64bit pro and installing new SSD hen installing win 10 64 bit pro. I then will install Firefox latest. I need to have it show all my bookmarks and other settings i have given it over the years. Impossible to recreate them all. I google how to do so, I locate the Profiles folder which has a VERY LONG non sensicle name unlike 'my profile'. I copy paste it to an external usb HDD into a folder called f, and still it says:- Source Path Too Long. The source file names are larger than is supported by the file system,try moving to a location which has a shorter path name, or try renaming to shorter names.

folder f is as short as one can do ! This profile folder already resides on C drive, how become the PC was happy with what was inside added to its silly long name ? My bookmarks are a few words long else you cannot read them, I dont have any LONG ones at all. Firefox must itself be generating names longer in the process and to mess with those will kill function and I DONT WANT ERRORS. I cant shorten what are short names. I have much longer names of files sitting several folders deep on my PC not a problem when moving about the folders.

IT IS CRUCIAL I GET THIS FOLDER INTO MY NEW PC. Perhaps I will have to plug in the old SSD and copy straight to the new C drive, it should not complain as the path will be the same length, but copying out to root level folder called f is a shorter path, and it fails.

HELP !
