I just switched back to Firefox and found that now when you download a file, you have to click on the little arrow next to the status bar to see the downloaded files.

I much prefer the way Chrome handles this. Whenever you download a file, it automatically shows a bar at the bottom of the screen showing the file progress, so you can immediately take actions like cancelling, or navigating to the file directory.

Is it possible to have Firefox display the downloads window automatically whenever you download a file?

Thanks! -Alterius

Hi, recently I've been seeing a repeated problem where instead of having everything logged in and ready to go on many websites, somehow ALL of my logins get deleted, as if they never even existed. This is really troublesome because I have multiple google accounts and they have to be logged in in a specific order so that certain links actually go to the right account. This has happened twice now, the first time I thought it was one time weird occurrence, but now that it happened again, I want to know what the problem is and fix it. So I want to know, is anyone else having this problem? I know some websites log you out after some time, but really there are many where it should stay, like YouTube, Twitter, Reddit. Luckily, logins seem to be the only thing affected as bookmarks and browser history seem to be unaffected.

The Bookmarks are all there, but the url is missing. None of the extensions (including ones I've paid for are there)

The logins weren't there, but are now restored from a previous install.

What I have done...

1. exported bookmarks to html and checked them out there. They were broken there as well.

2. Refreshed Firefox,

3. Restarted the PC.

4. Uninstalled Firefox (and discovered that I had both X32 and X64 on my machine) - uninstalled both. 5. Reinstalled Firefox x64 (current version 86.0.1)

6. the places.sqlite files from previous restores have the same problem.

I've started to refresh the links for the toolbar which has taken me awhile. I don't want to have to do it for all my hundred's of bookmarks.

Ideally what I'd like to do is uninstall the latest update, look at the bookmarks to see if they are still stuffed, and if the extensions are there. If they are ok, then I want to back the bookmarks to html. Reinstall the update, then restore the bookmarks. (And make a list of the extension names so I can reinstall them).

My guess is either that the sqlite file has corrupted, or the update has changed the file layout for the bookmarks, etc, and it's unable to interpret the links.

I have ran three antivirus said PC is clean, scan disk defrag done. I went through all settings nothing I saw looked wrong. I don't know what is going on I just know these last 5 days have been pure hell. I cleared cookies and site information, and reset passwords and I even went to sites to see what they suggested. Nothing worked. I tried Private Mode too. and a different browser. I know a few sites do work password wise. But sites like the bank and the credit cards don't no matter what i do. I am so fed up I am about to order this windows 10 pro disk and reformat. This is a Dell computer and i wish I never bought this thing. It is a little over a year old. If I decide to buy another PC it's gonna be from scratch. I hate Dell as soon as all the perks expired I have done nothing but fix this thing.

FF frequently fails to restore tabs losing all my previous work before I've finished. It's very annoying and frustrating. In search help the answer is not simple to understand. Please tell me, what is sessionstore and where can it be found? Why is there not a button to fix this problem? If sessionstore gets corrupted frequently as mine seems to (according to the answer) why not have a sessionstore back-up and a routine to correct the problem or at least easily recover from the corruption?

Well I've been looking into this a lot, but at this point I'm just spinning in circles.

Only when watching youtube streams, they'll cut out rather often. The stats for nerds has the Network Activity drop to 0, and live latency shoots up. Its only in firefox.

I can have the same stream open in chrome/edge, and they are not usually lagging when firefox does, or when they do it's for a shorter period.

I have tried safemode, turning off protections on Youtube, clearing cache, telling firefox to not use any proxies, changing my DNS, running the HTTP logging tool.

The logging tool looks like it could be the socket timing out, but I'm unsure how to fix it.

Is this just an issue with youtube hating firefox, or is it something I could fix?

A downloaded file (VMware-workstation-full-16.1.0-17198959.exe), Dwnlded on 19/Mar/21, ended up with a file size of 0 KB (SEE Image $20210320-mar~1-Download_Final_File_Size=0KB.jpg).

The file size should have been 622 MB (SEE Image $20210320-mar~2-Download_Save-File_Size.jpg).

I was wondering if the file ending in ".exe.part" may have been mistakenly accepted as the real file & renamed to ".exe".
