Hi, as I remember, in earlier versions of Firefox I could have a list of websites in the options menu, which were loaded during startup. Now I cant find this anymore, instead there is an option "Restore previous session". Is this correct? I would very much like to have the previous option. Thanks, Hans-Hermann

This has been a recurring issue. I go to a webpage and click on a 'link' but the link does not work. I contact the owner of the page, and we troubleshoot, and using a different browser works just fine (in my case: Edge). This has happened about 6 times with 6 different vendors and other 3rd party webpages. One suggested I turn of an Adblocker to test; that solved the problem. But I shouldn't have to turn off ad blockers in order for Firefox to function in a way that other browsers do.

This may be more in the category of 'proposed function fixes' rather than responding with a 'fix' to my problem.

Thank you!

Finally got the wife to start using our laptop which means a separate Windows 10 MS account on it for her. We obviously use Firefox, so to help her I was looking to copy my Bookmarks folders from my account to hers. Any ideas how? A simple copy and paste isn't applicable it seems. Many thanks all.

Had to reformat and reload OSX on my Apple Imac. Saved the complete user account to a hard drive assuming profiles and all would be in here. Looking to bring my profile back into the reformatted computer and the "Option" click go command to reveal the "library" under application support jumps to the new computer user account. How do I unlock the old one and get to the magic "library" folder that contains the profile....on my hard drive user account backup?

Hello, I'm in Italy on a Windows 7 pc (no proxy). When I use the address bar to perform a search on Firefox, I'm directed to google.com instead of google.it and this shows the results of foreign sites. For example, if I write "Amazon" in the Firefox address bar, I see the results of Amazon.com and not Amazon.it. Or if I write "pizza" I get out the international results and not those in Italian. Is there a way to correct this problem? If it does not exist, unfortunately I have to switch to Chrome which works well even when working on the address bar. In the link below the screenshots of the pages opened on Firefox and on Chrome: https://imgur.com/a/o9tVNzA

i have the latest mac os mojave, latest firefox version and it's been freezing on the print to pdf dialog box where you choose the folder where to save/print the pdf. After a few seconds it just freezes. This really sucks since i print a lot in PDF via the web browser. this is a deal breaker and that i have to force myself to go back to chrome. Same case with the latest version of firefox developer edition.

I've told the pc my location address, with no effect. I do know the gps coordinates of where I am but don't see anyplace to input it. it seems most sites work off gps-device input (like a smartphone) or ip address of the isp which does not fit the reality of where I am. I've seen this as a common complaint in windows10 etc.

After many middle click links or "right click open in tab" issues with FF recently, or last year almost. I think it might be down to issues of creating the gfx visual drawing of tabs in the main window frame.

Im no programmer but using procmon and beer, have noticed that over time FF will struggle to get over few "tab open" numbers and refuses to open tabs or open blank doa tabs. If open enough tabs past that number, usually by middle click spam, it will open the tab eventually. It seems to follow the same middle click spam pattern and issue will pass eventually, along with procmon showing activity and not just sitting there.

Procmon generally shows lot of activity opening tabs but when it hangs/shows doa tab it does nothing in procmon. My beer guesstimate is its almost one of the 1st steps on middle click thats breaking flow.

I can get no further than the landing page on citibank.com

For instance, If I try to access my FICO score on CITI, my browser appears to switch to a new page, but then locks up completely and I need to do Ctrl Alt Delete, then delete Firefox operations.

I am NOT using Adblock Plus on the Citi site I am allowing Tracking content on the Citi site I am allowing AdobeFlash current version 31.0 r0 on the Citi site

Nothing seems to get me past the Citi landing page and always results in Firefox locking up.

I've been having this problem where Firefox just fails to start. I click the desktop icon and nothing happens. No errors, no messages, no window flashes, just nothing. The process does *not* show in the task manager. There are no extensions or themes installed.

It does run in Windows safe mode. Firefox's own safe mode makes no difference. The only (very temporary) solution I've found is to uninstall Firefox, delete the program folder by hand and reinstall Firefox. But that only tends to work for a day or so.

I've run malware and virus scans on the computer, progressively closed running processes, installed the beta version of Firefox. Nothing works.

I have 3 rows of sites and whenever I reinstall Firefox I have to add them manually every time.

Suggestion: Let the users get "Top Sites" along with the other things when the user sync data, plus I don't like that the default top site's name starting with lowercase, I don't think it is a good idea, not sure if it's only me who didn't like it.

Cheers.

So about a week or so ago I got a second-hand Lenovo Yoga 500. The owner bought it in 2016 and then sold it to me on eBay. I'm very happy with it, but I've been noticing that, while the Pentium chip is zippy enough most times, Firefox seems to slow it down considerably. Chrome does it to a lesser extent, and I haven't tested Microsoft Edge. To fix the problem, I have tried:

-Refreshing Firefox -Running in Safe Mode -Toggling hardware acceleration -Decreasing the number of tab processes -Force disabling accessability. -Updating the BIOS.

Nothing works! Does anyone have a solution. about:config muck-arounds accepted.

I have a site that I log into to check the status of my solar panels (https://enlighten.enphaseenergy.com). There is a bar graph in 15-minute increments that you can scroll over with the mouse (there is also another page at the site that does the same thing, but different type of table)and this is not working with Firefox. I also cannot click on the arrows to change the day. It was working yesterday. This same thing has happened once before. It was working, then stopped. At some point, it started working again.
