Twice ! now, with the two most recent updates to Firefox my privacy settings have been erased. Specifically "Exceptions - Cookies and Site Data". This is most annoying as I need to rebuild the list each time.

How can I preserve these "Exceptions - Cookies and Site Data" across updates? Or, is this a bug? Or, is this considered a feature?

Thank you

Under normal circumstances Firefox appears to load web pages fine. As soon as I turn on Mozilla VPN and try to reload a browser tab I already have open, it behaves as though I am not connected to the internet. Other browsers do not experience this issue. Even after disconnecting from the VPN, Firefox only regains the ability to load web pages after restarting it.

I have tried using a private window with no add ons and there was no change. I have also tried refreshing Firefox. That does initially fix the issue but as soon as I close Firefox after refreshing, the issue returns. I would prefer if I didn't need to refresh Firefox every time I want to use Mozilla's VPN.

Hi i wanted to write this cause when ever i go watch a stream on twitch there's stutter and lag 24/7 on the stream and this happens only on Mozilla Firefox since 1 2 months . My connection is really fast and i tried clearing cache data history , or disabling hardware acceleration but nothing . To check if the browser or my pc/net was the problem i went on Edge and Google chrome and i kept both mozilla and the other browser open on the same twitch channel and only the Mozilla one was permanently stuttering and slow buffering . Is this issue fixable cause if its not i'm prob gonna swap back to Chrome .

Since the recent Firefox updates my YouTube is messed up. This issue started a few months ago. The thumbnail pictures on the right side of the video screen do not match the titles. The pictures and titles have nothing to do with each other. The "comments" section on a video are not available unless I take my cursor and strategically find the little sweet spot to allow me to start typing.Also my name appears on other viewers comments and others on my comments. If I go to "task manager, right click on "Task Manager" and click "restart" the problem goes away for one viewing then returns. If I open and sign in to Youtube in Chrome everything works fine, so I know it's not a YouTube settings issue. Please help, it's driving me crazy!!

Downloads won't start at all, from wetransfer to any website the popup won't even show up and the download will not start.

I've tried the suggessted solutions and I've come across this:

I restarted my firefox in troubleshoot mode and the problem went away, but it keeps happening in normal browsing. I've turned off hardware acceleration, turned off my extentions (all of them & one by one), I've done the resets in the config page, cleared downloads and cookies, changed theme, everything that is suggested is the problem goes away in troubleshoot mode, but it doesn't work.

Any other suggestions? Ideas?

This is not Privacy even if not stored on disk. This should be turned off or at least add a on off option in preferences to give users a choice. Someone could see this list on a screen when open. If you do this then why not have a tab that also shows Recent History also and keep it in Memory?

I think this is a valid Privacy concern, am sure there is some way to snapshot it from a forensic program as it is stored in memory.

Anyone else have concerns or thoughts??

I remember being able to fix this before, but I can't find the config category for it now. Basically, no matter what is already open in other tabs, I always want Firefox to follow my directions and open whatever website I type in the URL in my current tab. I don't care if, say, Twitter is already open in an earlier tab. If I type in twitter.com, I want it to open in that tab, not switch to the previous tab. For example, there may be some sites that update regularly, but I want to hang onto the older version for a bit, so I leave it open. But then if I want to see the newer updated page, Firefox will not allow me to do it. What do I have to search for to switch to True or False to change this?

I am experiencing two issues which are bugging me and have checked all settings to make sure they are as they should but am still experiencing issues:-

1 - Autoplay of videos does not work. I have Firefox set to autoplay any video but when I go to YouTube the video starts playing for half a second then stops and I have to click on play every time. I have tried this on other browsers and it works fine, so the issue is related to Firefox specifically.

2 - Auto open of documents - When I click on a link to open a PDF I get the pop up asking me what I want to do with it, despite clicking the box saying "Always do this action from now on" I still get that pop up every time. I have the "open in Firefox" option set in the menu but it is being ignored.

I have disabled any add-ons for Firefox and tried again but the issue still persists so is not being caused by them. Something isn't right and I've been trying to sort this myself for ages, so hopefully someone can either help or confirm there's a bug somewhere in Firefox that needs fixing. Thanks in advance.
