Upon sysytem startup today my browser immediately opened up a browser which then filled up with multiple tabs all labelled Error. IT then kept on opening up new browser pages which likewise filled up with multiple tabs all labelled as Error. Eventually a crash dialogue popped up and having sent that I tried to close the browsers only for them to continue popping up. Eventually I was forced to restart the system. Happily upon restart the problem did not recur. My anti-virus (Bullguard) reported no issues.

I was prompted and downloaded the latest upgrade install file (72.0.2), closed Firefox and ran the upgrade. The resulting web page had a welcome tab and privacy tab as if this was the first time I'm using Firefox. All my tabs, bookmarks, settings, add-ins, authenticating credentials and history have disappeared. No Restore previous session was available. This is major loss that takes away all the tools and knowledge based I had accumulated over many years. It not only devastates my ability to function online but also kills the tasks I had been working on for a couple of weeks. I was able to find an excellent resource at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1204253 which lead me to explore the Firefox files in sessionstore-backups folder. There is a file in there called previous.jsonlz4 which was saved about 15 minutes before the crash. I can see its contents using the tool at https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html but don't know what to do next. There is no recovery.baklz4 file in this folder. Is there anything I can do to recover my browser as it was before the crash with my tabs, bookmarks, add-ons and my authentication credentials to various sites so I can be functional again?

All of the sudden, Firefox shut down. It has happened before a couple of time, but when I opened it again, my previous session was restored. Not this time. All my tabs are gone, and "history" just shows the pages I recently opened, not the tabs that were abruptly closed. I would really appreciate any help you can provide.

I used profile manager and copied my profile (C drive) to a different directory (D). Profile even has same name. And is same size. Yet all bookmarks and add ons are gone. They remain in original C drive profile and that works fine if I default to it. But if I make the D Drive profile the default it looks like a new profile with no existing bookmarks/add ons. Why doesn't this data move across to?

With the newest firefox (72.0.2) I notice the tabs changing color as the mouse passes over them. A sort of greyish overlay appears over the background that is present before the mouse crosses into the tab. The selected tab does not change color; all the others do. This is really distracting to me; I never noticed it before. How do I get it to stop? (userchrome methods are fine.)

FF still not fully loading some sites that other browsers open even after following the instructions in the article. (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can) Example: site of large retailer gives a 404 message, medical blog site loads but scrollbar loads then disappears so no navigation. The first is a recent site and second I have visited for some time. Internet security is Norton Security. It's on auto-update plus I manually update weekly. I also am an Office 365 subscriber. These sites load successfully in Chrome and IE.

Hi. I just added a new bookmark subfolder, and want to move it up to a new position within it's folder. When I try to drag and drop it in the Bookmark Sidebar (as you can do in Google Chrome), it won't move. Is it possible to organize bookmark folders by moving them in Firefox, and if so, how can it be done?
