Every 2 to 3 days sometimes longer, Firefox will randomly reset itself and close out all windows and tabs to a single window and different search engine. Restore last session is never available when this happens even though I have that selected and checked and it does work when I manually close out windows and tabs myself so i know that preference is selected. My search engine preferences are always reset and have to restore defaults as well. Mac os Big Sur 11.2

Thanks to anyone who can help me solve this sudden mystery. Long time user of firefox on macbook pro and mac towers.

I have my Instagram tab pinned, as well as my Facebook Messenger tab, and every time I start Firefox, the Instagram tab is not pinned anymore. Yet, the Messenger tab is still pinned.

Is this a bug or a feature of the Facebook Container? I assume a bug since it only happens to my Instagram Tab.

Hello. I have purchased a new computer and cannot sync my Firefox account with it. The old computer is not working and I had forgotten my Firefox password, so I reset it through the "reset your password" email firefox sent me. After logging in , there is no history of bookmarks, passwords, or add-ons with my account. Does anyone know how i can recover this data?

I am not able to see live Streaming MJPEG video from both of my cameras on my new Samsung S21 Ultra. I had an S10 Plus and Firefox played both cameras video stream just fine. Odd thing is FireFox Focus plays both video streams like I experienced on my S10. But I have to login manually every time. I want to have the convenience of reg FireFox remembering user names etc. Any help is appreciated.

Hey There, since I installed Win10 I do have the problem, that Firefox (updated) has big problems with just one Webside: www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de. It loads veeeery slowly, pictures need next to one minute to load and a yello top banner says allways: "Eine Webseite verlangsamt Ihren Browser". Which means: A webside is slowing down Your browser. All Tips and Tricks from Google are tried already. No success. Other websides and photos are loaded normally. Anybody from here can help?

It seems Mozilla has removed the SSB option from firefox. I used that all the time and without it, I have had to revert to using chrome, which I don't want to do. Wny remove a feature? Its buggy? So what. A buggy hidden beta feature is better than no feature at all. It has users, including me. So just leave it as unsupported. Don't just axe it.

As to it having "no benefit". Absolutely the opposite - in a world where every app is now a cloud web app, we need to be able to separate different apps within windows, not just have multiple indistinguishable windows or tabs for each of the apps. So yes this was a seriously retrograde decision, and one which is sending firefox in a backward direction. SSB was the future. It's just few people were aware.

So when are mozilla going to reverse this decision? Does anyone know any other clever way to achieve the same thing - i.e. a separate fixed app for each webpage.

Hi, I'm having login issues on a website. I use Firefox for my browser. I have a couple of add-ons and VPN. I have disabled them but it still does not work. I have tried Safari with no VPN and no joy there either. I have cleared all cookies, cache history, put tracking protection at standard and cleared cookies from the Profile Folder (read the article on Mozilla about this issue). I have taken Firewall off Mac and tried it withiut VPN. Still nothing. I have checked my ipad without vpn. I can login on that on Firefox (without vpn) but I want to use my macbook if possible.

It's strange because I managed to log in on the website first time no problem and then I logged out and back in again and it wouldn't accept the password change. it's for a course and the people organising it have reset the initial password again but I still can't log in (they can do it with my username as they have sent me a video showing me they can and saying that it must be my end).

I have previously had a login problem with another website with a 403 error but that works without vpn. This doesn't.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello everyone. I noticed a small problem on my own. When I open a channel on YouTube, the video that is on the main page of the channel I went to starts by itself. I know this is normal. But when I then go to another channel in YouTube, the video from the main page of the first channel continues to be launched. I went to listen to the radio on the channel, but the music and sound from the previous video got mixed, they started to sound together. I'm using Linux Mint 20.1 and I don’t know how things are on Windows. So I think the problem is hidden in the browser itself.

I haven't made any config or extension changes since it stopped working, and not sure what could be causing this. I don't mind starting from scratch, just need Firefox back. :)

I've just received an email on my - previously - main email address (let's say: e1), about a data breach on another (e2) email address of mine.

When I log in to Firefox Monitor, with my main email address (e3), only that email address is displayed as monitored. The whole list (I don't know, 10+ addresses) that should be monitored, is gone.

Can someone explain to me a. why is the mail not send to the main email address and b. where is my list of monitored email addresses?
