Clicking on a link to a local file works ok for .odt .ods .pdf etc, but not for .doc or .xls. These cause a "not found" error with a file reference which is truncated. The files in question all open perfectly through W Explorer or through the Open command. This all worked ok in early December, but has recently faulted. The links work ok in Internet Explorer, so the fault appears to be in Firefox v71.0 64 bit running in Windows 7.

While trying to troubleshoot a site login problem (ticketmaster.com), I made a backup of my prefs.js, and reset a few hundred preferences in about:config. After finding the pref that caused the problem (tracking), I shut down FF, copied the backup prefs.js in place and restarted. After FF synced, though, my prefs were reset to the previous session with all the reset values.

How do I restore a prefs.js and either *not* fetch the values stored in my online profile, or update my online profile with the values from the file? Is there a timestamp I can update, or some other value to set?

Thanks.

I use a MacBook Pro with MacOS 10.11 and the latest version of FireFox (72.0.2) and I'm unable to figure out how to close multiple tabs at once.

With past versions of FireFox, I could bring up the context menu (by holding down the control key and clicking on a tab) and choose "Close other tabs" or choose "Close tabs to the right of this tab." I could also choose either option from the File menu, but all those options seem to be gone now and I can't even bring up the Context menu any more. Maybe if I had a two-button mouse, I could click the right button, but you should be able to do the same thing with the standard trackpad that comes with the MacBook. I'm sorry.

Anyway, how do you close multiple tabs?

Thank you so much.

Firefox initially popped open a window stating that I already had another copy open and so wouldn't open. After some investigating, I found a fix and followed the steps to delete profiles - possibly the cause of the errors. (I had applied this solution once months ago and it had worked then.) Subsequent to this attempt, I was unable to open Firefox - even with the creation of new profile(s). Given the situation, I deleted Firefox entirely by dragging into Trash and emptying the trash and re-logging in. Downloaded a clean new install from the Mozilla website. Although the DMG file downloaded fine, when I attempt to copy app to Applications folder, the system hangs. So now there is no way to re-install Firefox?!

This link /post seems to reflect my condition: https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1240427 However at the given location on my computer, I only had a FB video plugin - even after i deleted that, there is no change, i.e. remain unable to implement a fresh new install of Firefox.

Suggestions? Thanks! RT12

p.s. Using a different computer to post this. When I get a chance, I'll go back to the one with this issue and see if I can post the "troubleshooting information".

For me something very important in any browser is to restore the session as I left if. To save electricity I often turn off my computer and leave tabs open to deal with them later (sometimes too much later, but anyway). When I did the Firefox refresh the browser told me not to worry I will find out my tabs again. After the refresh, they were there. But then I closed Firefox and once I launched it again, they were gone. Because that setting was reinitialized: "Restaurer la session précédente" (FR, means "restore previous session") I cannot find them back in the history, because only those that I opened are in the history. This I did not open were not loaded by FF and therefore do not appear in the history.

My suggestion would be: - either to have this setting always enabled by default OR - during the reset, if this setting was checked, to keep it or ask the user if they want to keep it, warning it can be a source of slowness

I did write something descriptive, but this page a has a problem which has deleted my message after submitting: so first look at this page's code! Basically on 69.0.1 as 72.0.2 has basic flaw which slows up every new tab to ten seconds. Sick of updates not working. Have now include a 4 method block to prevent unwanted updates. Now I want to stop ALL nag screens. Websites advise about:config settings which don't exist.

Ever since I updated my Mac OS to Catalina, and updated Firefox to 70, any time I re-start my computer, Firefox does not recognize previous sessions and I have to open my tabs - including pinned tabs - over again. Then I get messages on my other devices saying Firefox has been opened on a new device. It doesn't recognize that I've been running Firefox before.

In my preferences I have "Restore previous session" checkbox checked and "Warn you when quitting the browser" unchecked. However I get a warning when I quit the browser with multiple tabs open, and my old tabs don't reopen when reopening Firefox.

I think this has started happening since updating to Catalina. Any ideas what might be going wrong?

Hi community! I've been switching from Chrome to FF this year, and noticed that in a couple of Google services(Google Ad Manager, Ad Words, Analytics etc.) FF seems to work poorly. 1. Layout of webpage is messed up 2. Scrolling gets stuck quite often 3. Loading speed is slow

I have tested FF and Chrome side by side, all these problems only occur on FF, also both browsers are the latest version. Does anyone know why this is happening, are there any fix?
