For no reason I can name, Firefox's window sizing has gone bonkers.

I'm using Firefox 101.0.1 with Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprise. I have two Firefox windows open.

When I unlock the computer after a period of non-use, the Firefox task bar icon has two white bars at the edge, indicating that two windows are open, but the windows not visible. Quitting and restarting Firefox does not help.

To recover the first window I must float the mouse over the task bar icon, opening thumbnails of the windows, then right click the first thumbnail and select Maximize. This makes the maximized window appear. Then I can drag the window away from the edge of the screen, reducing its size. After that it behaves normally until the computer is locked and unlocked; then the process repeats.

I can't recover the second window at all. Its thumbnail is empty except for a tiny rectangle in the upper left corner, presumably representing a tiny window. When I right click the thumbnail it doesn't open a menu; it just displays a blue rectangle as high as a normal window's title bar and about four times wider than high. Presumably this is what's left of the window. It has no title, no minimize/maximize/close buttons, and no system menu icon. Trying to change its size by dragging its edges has no effect. Nor does trying to maximize it by pushing it up to the top edge of the desktop.

What can I do to make Firefox behave normally? How can I prevent this from happening again?

Mac 10.15.7 and when I try downloading the latest FF update, first the system says the connection is not secure (it is ... https://) and this happens frequently then it give the old PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR. I'm assuming that duckduckgo on top of FF doesn't add to this mess and it's what I use. Ultimately, FF doesn't recognize the https:// ... why?

When I kept in sync with the latest FF, I was asked to download a new update about every six or less weeks. That's nuts. So, ultimately, I'd delete FF then download the latest version only to run into more issues. I stopped the ostensibly constant updates.

This doesn't happen elsewhere with duck on top of the browser. It's making me crazy enough to rarely use FF because I have to keep switching browsers and Waterfox is no better (or worse and I trashed that after deleting and installing the latest months ago). It happens with later versions of Macs, too, I just don't remember which version of the OSX.

Thanks for your help in advance.

I tried the crash report, you are not up to date. This was useless.

I am very mad because I have seen a continuing occurrence. Firefox crashes when I am on an alternative website not mainstream media sites. This looks like censorship!@!!!

I don't like it one bit. It has occurred while on Brighteon, Natural News and Locals. At least 6 times and never on other stuff.

well, most ad provider let you customize your ad preference I can allow virtual realitity devices ads and "turn off" android apps or food delivery apps however, they will completely ignore those settings if they can't show me an ad for my prefered topics specifically, I live in a very backwater rural town, I've paid a good sum to ship my VR equipment from another state, so it would be nice to see some games I can buy from their store, but of course, because I live in a backwater town and they don't sell vr equipment nearby, they will attempt to show an ad for something I can but locally, and you guessed it, they show me ads for ifood and uber eats, despite me telling them to not show me ads for android apps or food delivery I don't mind the ads per say, but between a major annoyance and no annoyance at all, the choice is obvious and no, I don't want white-list websites on ublock, if I could, I would left all websites show ads, if they were actually interesting to me instead of random junk I can find on the app store

Today, 6/10/22, I did what we sheep are trained to do, click on the latest update. What happened next is excruciatingly painful: EVERY SINGLE--ALL--FAVORITES AND SAVED PAGES--YEARS, YEARS WORTH OF SAVED PAGES AND FAVORITES, ERASED, GONE, WIPED OUT.

WHAT IS GOING ON? WAS THIS INTENTIONALLY PROGRAMMED? YEARS WORTH OF SAVED PAGES, GONE!!!

So I clicked on an excitingly named "restore" type link. Which resulted in only today's subsequent web activity being included.

What are you people doing?

This will be brief.

Can I rename the .corrupt file to restore my logins and passwords? This seems to have occurred during the last update. I am have heart palpitations. I have no other backups.

I have two .corrupt files created at the same time (see image), but their appear identical. This is odd. Does this even matter.

thanks for your help,
