I'm using Firefox for years but never faced this issue. If I close Firefox and open again my open tabs are restoring, settings and prefrences not changing. But if I restart my pc and start Firefox, session not restoring, opened tabs are not restoring.

I've tried backup and restore my profile (Files can see on attachment). After restoring profile tabs are opening, my old settings are there, until I restart my pc. What should I do now?

Greetings, One of the arguably most useful gestures for laptop users is still missing/broken on Firefox on windows. It's the two-finger swipe that allows to navigate forward or backward in history by swiping left or right.

This feature is present in Chrome and even Edge since many months, yet it has never worked on Firefox, on any of my windows devices.

I've been using Firefox Dev since 12+ months, keeping both it and windows 10 always up to date, the gestures never worked (yet they are activated in the about:config page, see attached images).

What's most disappointing is that the gestures work without any issue on the MacOS version of Firefox.


some useful info: Firefox version: 94.0b3 (latest as of today) Windows version: 21H1 build 19043.1266 (latest as of today)

If someone manages to get the two-finger swipe gesture to work on windows please let me know.

I hope this can get fixed soon, especially because the feature seems to be already built into Firefox, it just doesn't work in the windows release. In the meanwhile I'm switching to chrome

Caches the server response, even if it has changed

I have a VPN for work, some internal sites are inaccessible without this VPN. When I try to access them with the VPN turned off I legitimately get a 403. However, when I turn on the VPN firefox keeps showing 403 while other browsers work fine. This also works the other way around. When I turn off the VPN and try to go to one of the internal sites I don't get a 403 (as I should), instead firefox gets stuck at the page loading stage and nothing happens. There seems to be some kind of caching or optimization going on, but it's terribly interfering. Deleting cookies, caches, etc doesn't help at all. The only thing that helps in this situation is restarting firefox.

Hello,

I’m using firefox-dev under debian linux and since last updates my cron script that was supposed to open a certain url in firefox at a regular schedule stopped working.

I do export DISPLAY=:0 than run firefox $url and all was fine previously but now I always received a message : “Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To use Firefox, you must first close the existing Firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile.”

You can easily reproduce by running : sudo -u $(whoami) /path/to/firefox-dev/firefox https://www.google.com

Can somebody explain what is checked by firefox and why it consider it is not responding instead of just open my url in a new tab ?

Firefox dropdown menus and toolbar popups inconsistently work

Both drop-down menus (e.g., the drop-down for "Which topic best describes your question?") and popup menus for add-ons in the bookmark bars work inconsistently or not at all. The right-click menu and the 3-bar menu often fail to work on the first few tries, but eventually open. (And in the case of the 3-bar menu, it often opens without certain options, like "Settings," "More tools," and "Help," though these usually appear after waiting a few seconds.) Other menus, like drop-down menus on website or several pop-ups for addons, don't work at all, no matter how many times I try.

The issue isn't solved by starting in Troubleshooting mode (insofar as they can be reproduced -- some things, like the add-on popups, can't be since the add-ons are disabled) or by clearing the cache.

I'm running Firefox Nightly 95.0a1 (2021-10-06) (64-bit) on Arch Linux, though the same issue seems to affect Firefox 93.0.

Thanks very much in advance for any help.

In the Find box, sometimes the search skips over my word of interest before I fully type in the word.

I would like to search the old fashioned way in the Find box. Let me completely type my search word and hit Enter before the search commences.


Is this possible?


I do not have the "Search as You Type" option turned on, which really does not apply to the Find box.

Is there back-support for FF 4.x? If not, why not?

I'd like to roll back to FF4.x until my add-ons are updated for 5.0, but I can't find 4.0 on the mozilla website (even though I can find 3.6.x). Is there a plan to have 4.0 support, or has it been so completely superseded by 5.0 that it's actually unsafe to use?

As general feedback, I'd like to suggest that the compatibility check for add-ons happen *before* confirming the update: it's just unnecessarily frustrating when something breaks and it's too late to go back.

I have a mac, I was using firefox 3.6.16 which works just fine. I tried updating to version 4, but the appearance was weird and the preferences pane was all kinds of screwed up. I downloaded version 5 today and its pretty much the same as version 4. I have tried using safe mode and it works fine, I disabled all extensions and none of it works.
