I had a partial crash of Firefox browser where some windows with multiple tabs closed. I believe it was caused by my processor overheating. After correcting my processor overheating issue and restarting, the remaining windows that were open before the reboot restored as the previous session but the windows and tabs that crashed did not recover. Would those be backed up anywhere?

I have a habit of keeping a number of pages open to return to under iPhone iOS Firefox. I also generally keep one “current” page open, usually a DuckDuckGo search page, when I close the app, expecting it to come up again immediately when I reopen it. For the past couple of weeks however, reopening Firefox blasts me about 10 miles up into one of my “saved” pages, instead of my “current” one. Why? Why won’t Firefox remember my current page after years of doing so just fine?

Hi Support team,

I would like to know what changes have been made after version 94 in firefox which changed the visibility logic. The websites work in background tab without the focus in version 94 where as the latest version requires the tab to be in focus or active. Could you please let me know if there are any config changes made in firefox by default for inactive tabs or tabs which are not focused. If so, could you please let me know what changes are required to get the same behavior for inactive tabs as version 94.

Thank you

Firefox returns what I think that the window object when I write document in the Firefox console to get the source code. I was trying to get the HTML in the console like Chrome. I'm learning to program and don't know where else to ask. I'm going to let you some pictures, maybe you can understand better. the picture is the return when I write document in the firefox console. sorry, I can't explain better but I'm late to work.

So, here's how CenturyLink responded to my recent "cry for help" (as Rick Astley sang . . .).

I am sorry to hear of the issues you faced trying to find an email address for CenturyLink. There is a known issue with Firefox not working with our website. The best way to access our website is by using Google Chrome and making sure the pop up blockers are not activated. Unfortunately, as the issue is with the Firefox browser, there is nothing we can do to fix that issue.

Well, guess it's time . . . after all these years . . . to rethink my interest in Firefox, eh?

Firefox 101.0.1 (64 bit) causes a false error message about a Java plugin which doesn't exist on my installation. This didn't happen with Version 101.0. On Netdania.com I get "You are currently running a browser version that does not support Java plugins anymore. We recommend to switch to Internet Explorer or Safari on Mac. ". Netdania supports html and is not dependent on Java. I use Netdania.com successfully with the Chrome browser, no Java plugins and it used to work with Firefox 101.0.

Thanks for any help you may be able to provide.

If there is a setting method, give me some advice.

I'm having trouble with my Wordpress site, bmeisterman.com. When attempting to edit or create a post, when I click that link, it goes to a blank page. Other sections on Wordpress work without issue. I tried this on Safari and it worked flawlessly. I updated Firefox without any improvement. I rebooted the computer, still no difference. I deleted all cookies and cache without improvement. The problem exists only on Firefox. Thoughts?

When I select the "Copy link" option in the context menu on any webpage, it is about a 70% chance that the link is actually copied to the clipboard. The other 30% of the time, the clipboard retains its previous content. This problem has been occurring for about 6 months, through multiple Firefox upgrades.

My sense is that the problem occurs on tabs that have been open a long time. I don't think it matters which website I attempt to test.

I can repeat this problem right now. I can copy every link on this page. However, in another window I have open, which has been open for a long time, I cannot copy any link on that page.

Any ideas how to fix this problem?
