On my 2020 iMac I have my firefox settings set to open previous windows and tabs at startup. If I close firefox and then reopen it, particularly after startup, the previous windows and tabs are gone. Usually I can open history and restore the previous windows and tabs. Today, for the first time, at startup, not only were the previous sessions' windows and tabs gone, but there was no history of any sort. I did not clear the history, but all my history is gone.

How do I get firefox to reliably reopen my previous windows and tabs, and now, how do I retrieve all my history?

Long time user of Firefox, and installed latest update and there is something wrong with it. Perhaps someone wrote a bad line of code? After installing the update there are at least 2 problems. One, Safesearch can no longer be turned off. Two, suggestions as you type cannot be turned off, this is extremely annoying as I do not like or use this feature. I cannot use Firefox in this crippled condition and will use another browser for my web searches which are frequent for my research and other project. This is sad as Firefox has been my primary browser almost since it's inception. I have tried to fix this on my own and have only been frustrated and wasted a good bit of time.

I am using Firefox 96.0.1 on macOS Monterey 12.1

If you have "'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed checked in Privacy & Security/Cookies and Site Data then this causes sites that use a service worker to fail registration with the error:

"Failed to register/update a ServiceWorker for scope https://every-layout.dev/: Storage access is restricted in this context due to user settings or private browsing mode."

This *only* occurs with Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Brave etc. all register the service worker OK. I know the workaround is to put in an Exception to Allow but this should not be necessary. In this case the service worker is use to provide access to paid for content and off-line reading.

I contacted the site's developers and they tell me that they have been waiting for ages for Mozilla to fix this issue and suggested I used an alternative browser.

Can anyone explain why Firefox behaves in this way and if this "feature" will be fixed on future releases?

Thanks

John

After updating to Firefox 96.0, Firefox became unusable. Went from happily playing two youtube tabs (one speech, other background music) 2 tabs in separate windows of 10 to 12 windows open with more than 10 tabs in each window, although many were inactive, alongside Apple Mail and often one or two other apps open such as Preview, VLC or TextEdit; whereas immediately after update to Firefox 96.0 to taking 10 minutes to load a tab when only 2 or 3 tabs were open, and unable to play youtube videos without continuous breaks totalling far more than the video itself, and unable to play embedded videos in BBC news website when only 2 or 3 tabs open in one window with no other apps running, other apps were very sluggish when Firefox running; all other apps ran fine, as normal when Firefox was not running.

Firefox 96.0.1 improved it's ability. Youtube videos will mostly play now if there is only 2 or 3 tabs open, as with BBC embedded videos, tabs are often now taking 3 to 5 minutes to load.

Downloads were like night & day, Firefox was happily working until updated to FF 96, immediately after update FF was almost impossible to use, updating to 96.0.1 created a little more usability, but still cumbersome and very sluggish to the point of pretty well unusable. Was running FF on 2011 Mac Mini, OS 10.12.6 with 16GB RAM

I would like to name my credit cards ("Irl's AMEX", "B's auto Visa"). Safari allows this but Firefox doesn't seem to. Or at least I can't find it. Basically, when I view a saved credit card, instead of seeing, e.g., "****1234 2025-01" I'd like to see a text entry which I can edit. I'm even willing to do a bit of fancy footwork (add something to the .plist, say). OS X High Sierra, 10.13.6.

I prefer Firefox browser on my computer - currently using 96.0.1

 a month or so ago, when logged in to godaddy email workspace, the subject line cursor won't stay in place.

I'll type a word then space resulting in the cursor jumping to the front of the line of text. Sometimes it jumps after the first letter but always with the space bar and only in the subject line of this website.

If I type a word in the subject line, then space, the cursor moves to the front of the line of text... if I continue typing there and use the space bar the cursor doesn't jump. But if I move the cursor behind the first word and space, type another word and space it jumps again.

I worked with godaddy on the issue... after troubleshooting various browsers (this only happens when using Firefox) and other things they asked me to do they point the finger at Firefox. I hope this can be figured out, I do not want to use Chrome for email. thanks!

Hi, I've updated from ff95 to 96.0.2 and found that my files on google docs have not been loading properly. The text is blurred and it gives an error saying 'some fonts could not be loaded. please reload'. This seems to only happen in firefox and is fine in chrome and as well as when I downgraged to ff95 on my old profile. Back on 96.0.2, I've tried clearing cookies and cache, safe-mode, setting theme to default, all to no avail. Are there any other ways I could troubleshoot this issue? I've attached an image that shows what the text looks like on chrome and the latest version of firefox.

Dear Sir,

I have my firefox username and password. However, whenever I try to sign in nowadays, I am asked to enter a verification code that is sent to my email address within five minutes. The email does arrive, but never withing 5 minutes. I have tried it many times on different devices. It may be my email issue. However, I cannot change the email account unless I cannot log it. Since I cannot receive the verification code within 5 minutes, I am unable to change any of my personal details.

Please advise.

Yours sincerely, Tan Ngiap Heng

P.S. It was very difficult gettting to this support page. I was asked to log in and verify before continuing for some of the support pages. But like I mentioned, I am unable to receive the verification code within 5 minutes. So I am thankful for this page.
