When going to NCL.com the page takes a long time to open, then is just straight text. Tried refresh and it still does the same. It comes up in a few seconds, properly, with Microsoft Edge. I am sure there is a setting or something just do not know what one. Also, this happens on 2 different computers one is Win10 and one Win11.

I use Panorama Groups. If I click on a tab I then land on that page, however the tabs at the top of the screen seem to move so I lose where the place of the tab I clicked on. Its frustrating as I try and put relevant tabs close to each other so I can swap between them. Because this happens I have to go and hunt for the tab I am using as there maybe 20 or more in a group its a pain. Please help or even suggest an alternative group add-in. TIA

How can I recover the history that has been deleted from firefox? Already there is an article from 2020 which says to find index.dat file but there is no .dat file that i can find. I am looking for the file in the following location: AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\83ctti6r.default-release\cache2 and that location is the only one with a file named index but it is without .dat extension. If that is supposed to be the file that I am to use then which .dat file reader do I use to open it and recover the history.

I used to have the Tab Mix Plus extension which no longer works in Firefox.

The one feature I really miss from this extension is the ability to alternate between 2 tabs by clicking on one of them. I know that there are various extensions that allow you to switch tabs using shortcut keys and I do use the Switch to Previous Active Tab extension which is useful but I do miss the simplicity of being able to just click on a tab to switch to the previous and even after several years without it I still often try to do it, forgetting that it no longer works.

Is there any extension or setting that can reinstate this feature?

I confirmed the (Automatically install updates) is checked with (When Firefox is not running) option as well. I also have the (Mozilla Maintenance Service) installed on the computer. The only way the browser updates is, if when I go to the about settings and then it checks for the updates and it does update eventually. But I do not want to be doing that all of that time. I would like it to update automatically when closed, how is suppose to occur. Any thoughts or workaround on how to make this work automatically?

The LastPass icon has disappeared from the menu. I've tried re-installing the extension, and looking in the "customize" list (right click on the menu area), but it isn't there. Please advise how I can get it back. I rely on it. I think this is a result of a Firefox upgrade.

Today I was going to forward spam to reporting places. One must open View raw message. It would not open; Seemed rather proud of the fact that it had blocked a website from opening something.

Brings me to my point: I have never understood the need to open View raw message, go to that new tab, control A, control C, go back to the tab with the email opened, click forward, control V.

I believe that IF ONE CLICKS FORWARD, all of that should be automatically done. Forward SURE IT IS USED FOR MANY OTHER REASONS OUTSIDE OF REPORTING OF SPAM. However SHOULDN'T YOU BE HELPING OUT WITH THE REPORTING OF SPAM?

Felix

Post Script: And why? Just why? Why should View raw message be blocked?

It happens whenever I try to google something. Google opens, I type whatever I search, the suggestions appear, but hovering on them doesn't turn the cursor into a pointer. The moment I click them, or press enter after typing, Firefox starts freezing. It also happens when I reload some other pages, for what I've seen till now. Looking into Task Manager, its memory usage goes up and up, and anything else that is connected gets cut off (running videos on YT stop, downloads fail, etc.). Tried on Chrome and there is no such issue.

I didn't install any new extension, nor application in the PC itself, or anything else. I don't think there was even a Windows update (using Windows 11). It simply started doing so from one day to the next, yesterday. I waited to see if it would go back to normal today, going away just like it came, but of course no. Restarting the PC doesn't fix it, troubleshooting mode does nothing, I tried setting accessibility.force_disabled to 1, but still nothing, changed Firefox profile, again nothing.

Any suggestions before trying to uninstall and reinstall (which would be very bothersome due to extensions and ongoing sessions, with no guarantee that it'd fix anything either)?

export and then import bookmarks - Firefox -> Firefox

HI. I recently purchased a new laptop and have Windows 11 Home (64 bit) installed. I installed the latest version of Firefox (v117). I am attempting to copy the bookmarks from another laptop - same version of Windows and the same version of Firefox. 1. I exported the toolbar bookmarks from old laptop which created an HTML file - file type shows as

   Firefox HTML Document.

2. On the new laptop I went through the process, Manage bookmarks,

     highlighted the Bookmarks Toolbar, selected  Import bookmarks from HTML, selected the file I wanted
     then 'OPENED'  the file I wanted to use. 

3. The process ended very quickly, file was not large. I clicked on the HOME icon and NO bookmarks

    were displayed on the toolbar, no bookmarks in the Other Bookmarks either. 

4. The only change was - all bookmarks from the old laptop were listed under 'Recent bookmarks' which

    made no sense since I had not visited them on the new laptop. 

5. I went through the process twice and I now see duplicate entries in the 'Recent bookmarks', no bookmarks.

So, what have I missed or does the export / import process simply not work? I have not tried the backup / restore process since this is the all or nothing approach and I may want to copy a few bookmarks in the future using the export / import process.

Does anyone have any ideas since I'm stopped at this point in time.

thanks B

Please don't go technical on me. I read exactly how to bookmark a website. I understand how to create folders. What I'm lost about is how do I create a folder in my toolbar, and not see the website in the menu? I have tried to put a saved site in a toolbar folder, then delete it from the drop-down menu, but once it is deleted the toolbar folder is empty. The folder I created still exist though.

Then I tried to create a folder and put it in the Toolbar. In the drop down menu I left specific websites.

When I closed the browser everything was gone from the folders and the drop down menu.

All I need it to create folders in the Toolbar area. Leave "non-duplicated" sites in the drop down menu. I just don't need to loose everything again, I spent hours doing this, I'm thankful I was able to do a recovery, except it was the last date I used days ago.

Again, this is what I need, not how yours is.

Thanks

When watching Youtube in full screen, mousing over bottom right corner of the screen activates some kind of a miniscule scroll down button. I assume this is an issue with Firefox since it does not occur in other browsers. I want to disable this functionality so when instinctively navigating to the bottom right corner I disable full screen, not scroll down.

We're currently using Firefox ESR 102.x and our VA software is reporting vulnerability issues with CVE-2023-3600 with says:

During the worker lifecycle, a use-after-free condition could have occurred, which could have led to a potentially exploitable crash. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 115.0.2, Firefox ESR < 115.0.2, and Thunderbird < 115.0.1.

Based on the scan report, my understanding is that this ONLY applies to ESR Builds of 115.x and not with ESR 102.x release.

does it mean that this CVE also affects our 102.x version?

Thanks!
