In the recent update to Mozilla, all of my shortcuts disappeared. I had many, and can`t remember them all. Is there any way to restore my shortcuts from what they were a month ago? If not, I will switch to Edge.

Hello, I have a few questions I hope you can answer As of January 2024, I personally have a W11 PC with the newest Fire Fox version. I do lots of important research on FF,

1) I see my regular TABS I refer to as my favorites, so I can speed up my research, the usual (Google search, Maps, YouTube etc)

2) NOW I realize I have to SEPARATE, my MANY favorites in different work files or dossiers, IS there ANY WAY, I can have complete separate ROW of my favorites for ex: a row of ONLY FINANCE, and a second row I can call up when ''''I NEED TO'''', when I do research ex: on ALL A.I., and a 3rd row on a different topic ? etc

3) WITHOUT seeing all 3 rows at once that clutters up my screen for nothing, ROWS I want to CALL UP when I need to !

If not, have some one program it as everyone in my circle, including myself is demanding this, times are changing as more and more people work from home and want to separate personal and work files

MSN is my home page. When I open Firefox, it goes to MSN as it should, but then the right and left arrow keys to view the articles do not work. The arrows will not go to the next page, nor go back to the previous page. Is this a MSN or Firefox problem?

I have been using Simple Tab Groups (STG) for a long time now. I am curious if putting tabs into groups saves any resources, i.e. is only the open group using resources (CUP/RAM), or is STG purely organizational in that all the tabs still use the same amount of resources as if they weren't grouped? If it is the latter, do you know of an add-on that would save resources? Thanks

How can I import or to which folder do I import bookmarks so they show up in the shortcut rows in a new tab? I'm trying to get away from Opera but I love the shortcuts displayed on a new tab. I tried copying all the appropriate bookmarks to the bookmarks menu folder and why they are in the folder they dont display in the shortcuts.

The imagine shows where I want to import to.

Hi everyone,

My computer crashed while updating from Windows 10 to Windows 11. Unfortunately, I had someone look at it and he formatted my hard drive and only did a partial backup of files. I thought my Mozilla Firefox account was syncing, but it seems like it did not happen in a while. Does anyone know if there's any hope in recovering the lost tabs and bookmarks? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks,

Kenan

Ok, I've resolved this in the past, several version of Firefox ago, under windows. Firefox crashes silently, open it again and no tabs are restored. Open firefox again and look in recently closed windows and the one with my tabs is not there, only little utility windows that are popped up when I log in at the coffee shop, so my recently closed windows are overwritten with windows with no tabs.

So I go to my profile sessionstore-backups folder and copy it to the desktop. I have 6 files, previous.jsonlz4, recovery.baklz4, and recovery.jsonlz4 at around 8 megs in size. I copied each to the folder one level up and renamed them sessionstore.jsonlz4, and each time restarted firefox. All that opens is a blank tabbed firefox window.

There was never an existing sessionstore.jsonlz4 file anywhere I could find, even with firefox closed, this file never appears anywhere I could find it. Searching files with Windows was also unsuccessful.

I feel like I have captured the files with my tabs, based on the date modified, several were from before the crash. Why can't I find a working tutorial on how to restore my tabs? Nothing I've found on the support site works though I follow the directions exactly.

Thanks

I recently downloaded Tree Style Tab. I still see the horizontal tab bar. I would like to hide it. However, I have tried just about every answer I could find on Mozilla, Google, Reddit, and any other websites that offered solutions. Nothing has worked since the last update. This includes the "type in about:config, toggle to true, open profile folder, create userChrome.css file, copy and paste xyz code, save, and restart Firefox" route.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
