Hello you fine folks!

I was using firefox with webGL until it upgraded to 73.0.1. Now all webGL content cannot be initialized. Specifically, Mapbox GL cannot initialize WebGL - I suspect someone has left a toggle in the code somewhere and it borked my workflow.

When I start firefox with all add-ons disabled I still get the same errors. I am 99% certain this has to do with the firefox update because it forced a restart and then various mapbox gl websites stopped working - I also confirmed it was not only mapbox gl by visiting the WebGL working site here: https://get.webgl.org/

https://docs.mapbox.com/mapbox-gl-js/example/simple-map/ gives me results in the attached images

I literally did not change a thing except upgrade the browser as was required.

Firefox Stopped working (Window 7 SP1) and I had to reinstall it form scratch. Now I have lost my bookmarks. when I go through the procedure to restore them, I can see the historical backup files going back some days. But when I attempt to restore from any of those files, I get this Error Message: Unable to Process backup file. I can find nothing on Firefox Help that addresses this problem. I have tried it in Safe Mode, but got the same result. Any suggestions most gratefully received.

Using Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1 Firefox 73.0.1 64-bit When I close several tabs, a message box appears telling me that tabs will be closed in 20 seconds, or to click to avoid that. If I dismiss the box by clicking on the window-frame "X", Firefox closes too many tabs. (The box disappears after a few seconds.) I wish not to see that box. I wish Firefox to do nothing I do not trigger myself. How do I eliminate that function entirely?

HI..

I'm running Xubuntu 18.04.4 LTS & recently switched from waterfox to Firefox 73.0.1. I have been bugged by two problems that I haven't been able to fix myself & was hoping that someone here could possibly help.

[ Problem_1. Sync has stopped working.... ] Whenever I open the synced tabs sidebar all I see is "Connect Another Device". On android I'm running Firefox Nightly version 75.0a1 & I've signed out & then re-signed in, but still nothing. The sidebar stays the same as the screenshot above. Both devices show under devices & apps & I can send tabs between both browsers. I just cannot use the synced tabs sidebar. I use sync daily & hope to find a fix soon. Here is the most recent sync log from about:sync-log. >> https://paste.mozilla.org/cXGtysBQ <<

[ Problem_2. Cannot fully use Instagram.... ] I can access instagram.com & browse through the site without any problems. However if I try to like, comment, share or follow I constantly get "Action Blocked" popping up & whatever I've just tried to do has been unsucessful. I can confirm that instagram works perfectly on both chromium & brave desktop browsers & also the official android app.

I have attached two screenshots relating to both my problems & can confirm that uninstalling & reinstalling firefox did nothing. Many thanks in advanced for replying & helping me :)
