After last or previous update, Firefox does not load home page. Get message with last tabs:

Sorry. We’re having trouble getting your pages back.

We are having trouble restoring your last browsing session. Select Restore Session to try again.

Still not able to restore your session? Sometimes a tab is causing the issue. View previous tabs, remove the checkmark from the tabs you don’t need to recover, and then restore.

Did all this it is still happening. Last time removing some file folder did not correct. Do not want it to restore last session!

What is causing this?

In my settings it says my settings are being managed by my organisation. I am not in an organisation.

I have changed my password onm sync so I presume everything is signed out everywhere but the message persists. Who has unauthorised access to my account and how did they get it? How do I secure my account?

[LINUX][NON-WINDOWS][ONLY REPRODUCABLE ON LINUX] Sessionstore variables for OS restart don't do anything

browser.sessionstore.resuming_after_OS_restart = false. My browser still restores on os restart. Startup -> Restore previous windows and tabs is unchecked browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes = 0 browser.sessionstore.restore_on_demand = false browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash = false

I do not and will not manually close my browser session every time I want to shut down my computer in order to get it to do what it's supposed to. Linux sends SIGTERM to all running processes on shutdown. Firefox isn't handling this correctly, obviously, because if it was, then my settings would be getting respected. SIGTERM is the standard signal sent to windows that need to close gracefully and are expected to still be functional.

NOTE: Do not provide windows-specific support to this thread. I am not running firefox on windows, and I do not possess a windows computer or license.

This happens on only one site that I know of - the online WSOP poker site. Once having signed in and selected a table the next screen is comprised of two parts; the interactive gaming table on top , with commentary and other info below. I have used Firefox exclusively and this poker site for several years. Suddenly, I assume after a recent Firefox update, Firefox is displaying only the bottom portion. Suspecting perhaps the site software, or a problem with my system I installed Edge and Chrome to investigate. Both rendered the screen correctly. Any thoughts?

How do I remove autocomplete items from login typing spaces?

I'm about to lose my mind on this. I have searched long and short where this would be hidden at in the settings and I can't find it. Anything I search for just gives me basic troubleshooting for autocomplete in the search bar.

First, Firefox has 2 twitter logins successfully stored in the password vault. When I go to Twitter the only suggestion for the login is "tulsa" and I have no idea where it's getting this. It will not auto fill in either of the 2 stored emails, not even if you begin typing them. I have to type them in manually and then when I submit it, the password is automatically typed into the next page.

Highlighting "tulsa" and not clicking or hitting enter and using the delete key does nothing.

This is really, really driving me nuts. Please help me.

Firefox won't play videos on MacOS 12.4 with unsupported Macbook Pro (2012)

Hi,

I have a very special problem. I have a Macbook Pro (2012) with MacOS 12.4. The old MacBook Pro is not supported by Apple.

Since the update a few days ago, Firefox won't play all videos (for example vimeo.com, youtube.com (not always)). Some videos will be played.

I tried it with deleted cache and website data, with no luck. I tried it with disabled hardware acceleration also with no luck. It also won't work with a new und empty profile (without any extensions).

The sides are loading the video but the playback won't start. Sometimes I get a spinning loading wheel. I suspect the advertising before the videos. Or it is a problem with graphic-libraries from macos, that do not work propper with my MacBook Pro.

With other browser (Chrome, Safari etc.) all videos will be played.

I now, it was my decision to switch to an unsupported OS on my old computer, but everything works (except for Firefox) and I get two more years security updates. I don't want to switch to another browser. :-(

Best regards Kay
