I left my PC for a looong time (more than a month). Came back, booted Windows and started FF - and only one window reopened, despite when I closed it there was two. And "recent windows" in "history" - grayed out.

A small remark - I use my FF in weirdly advanced mode, I have many tab groups (through addon), and two windows - one with long-run tabs I need, another with temporary ones, which I lost now. There was some important sites/history. How can I restore it back?

(and what has happened to the forum? Why Mozilla buried it's community in such an awful way so it's sooo hard to find? 0_0)

Hello, I am trying to add searx as my default search engine. Searx runs on port 8080 on my localhost therefore it's url is https://localhost:8080. I can successfully visit this url and use searx; however when I add searx using the green button to my search engine list, it strips the port resulting in an error when searching. This is very frustrating with no ability to change this setting as far as I can tell. Is there any work around for this issue?

duplicate of /questions/1359208 and also moved from Firefox for iOS to Firefox section as you are using Firefox on a Mac.


I have had an Instagram account for many years. Two days ago it stopped coming up when I entered it on the Firefox web site bar. I tried turning off the enhanced tracking protection in the shield but it didn't help. I get Instagram on my iPhone and iPad so it is not a problem with my Instagram account. Why can't I get Instagram anymore on my iMac OS Version 10.14.6 on my Firefox browser?

Hello dear Mozilla community!

I've faced an issue with search engines configuration for Firefox on macOS. I'm doing the following:

  1. Removing all but one One-Click Search Engines, leaving only one engine in the list (currently my preference is DuckDuckGo): https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-41-395a2a.png or https://imgur.com/DKqvzZ9
  2. When I type search request in the address bar I'm seeing nice and clean search suggestions from Search Provider of my choice: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-13-a8d46c.png or https://imgur.com/a/slivHlF
  3. Close Firefox
  4. (not sure what other conditions needed)
  5. Open Firefox
  6. When typing search request in the address bar I see that Amazon and Ebay options are back and a suggestion line "This time, search with ..." as added by firefox: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-02-4a25db.png or https://imgur.com/vjq0NCf
  7. In the preference I see that those two searches (Ebay and Amazon) were automatically re-added to One-Click Search Engines: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-23-91dd1d.png or https://imgur.com/ibnlzLS

That issue is happening to me across different versions of firefox and isn't new. I've been seeing it for a few month hoping that to resolve in a newer versions. But as of right now I'm on 82.0.3 (64-bit) and the issue is still there.

It's a bit annoying as I have to my preferences literally every time I need to restart Firefox (which is especially annoying to do right after restarting FF to switch to a newer version).

Any suggestions and help is welcome!

Best regards, Serhii.

Firefox won't stay downloaded to my computer. I am having to download it multiple times, especially if my computer has updates.

On a separate note, when it does actually stay on my computer over night, it never keeps me signed in to my Firefox account. I have to log in to it daily to have my bookmarks and passwords.

Also, it never remembers the theme I have picked for it. I would love some advice on how to fix this.

I've read through a ton of articles, and I can't seem to find a fix.

I am unable to import logins using a csv file even though I followed instructions and enabled that functionality on the about:config page. After choosing "Import from a file" I get a page with a yellow header asking me to enter my "Primary Password" to view logins. When I click the "log in" button to do this, immediately I get an empty page that says "No synced logins found."

My logins disappeared after I "refreshed" Firefox. Now I'm sorry I did that. I do still have the logins on a different computer (hence the csv file).

I downloaded and installed the latest version of Firefox into the new Mac mini (Apple Silicon) arrived at home today, but Japanese sentences in every website are displayed not in a Japanese font (like Hiragino) but in a Chinese font.

What should I do so that I make the sentences display in a Japanese font correctly? I tried to change the font settings of the Firefox, but the settings get back to the default font instantly. Please answer me if you know how to solve this problem.

(I'm sorry if my English above is poor or incorrect.)

Why did Firefox change the way one could hide or display the "Bookmarks Toolbar"?

Before all one had to do was click on "View" and one could hide or show the Bookmarks Toolbar, but with the latest change/update, now one has to chose select "View", then hover over "Toolbars", then hover over "Bookmarks Toolbar", and finally select "Always", "Never" or "Only on New Tab". How could that be an improvement? I miss being able to toggle it off or on in a rapid manner, because now I have to waste more time to just hide or display it again.

Is there a way to be able to view or hide the "Bookmarks Toolbar" in a more efficient manner? I'm asking because I normally have to hide them and later display them back again tens of times on a daily basis, mainly because when I take screen captures, I don't want the Bookmarks Toolbar to appear. So this new feature really annoys me.

Hopefully there's another alternative to be able to toggle it on or off.

I have a Mac system that has been on OS X 10.11.6 for a long time, and was switched to the ESR channel when the release channel no longer supported this version. I have finally been able to update that system to something later (Mojave, 10.14.6) and want to restore Firefox to the release channel. How do I do this and preserve all of the Firefox settings, history, etc.? Won't installing a fresh copy of Firefox wipe all that out? Thanks for any help you can provide.
