I keep getting freezes, slow downs, sometimes a warning that a page is slow to respond. I'm running FF 83.0. I have the following add-ons: - AdBlock - Colorful Tabs - Hover Zoom - Scroll Zoom - Search by Image.

I'm guessing one of the add-ons is causing the problem, but don't know which one. I've done the restart firefox to stop freezes multiple times. Still happens. Any ideas?

I found some information about opening PDF files with firefox. What I could not find is: why are all my PDF documents on my harddisk changed from Acrobat to firefox (see picture). Still when I open a PDF document, my browser opens and I do not want read my pdf documents on the internet.

But I have no idea why all my pdf documents were changed to mozilla pdf.

Have anyone a solution?

I HAVE SYSTEM RESTORE ON MY FIREFOX. When I purposely restarted my computer, for an unknown reason, a session came up but my previous session did not automatically restore as usually it does. I did something in that window and was thinking about something else and deleted it, ie: the session. OH S _ _ _! Just lost my restore previous session opportunity..... I opened another session (and restore previous session was grayed - not available) and have not closed my session nor re-started since. Is there any other way to go back and recover my lost session windows and tabs? .... not from the previous session that I accidentally closed, but from the session before that? Thanks in advance. George

How To Import Firefox Saved Passwords From Old Computer Hard Disk To New Computer

Hi.

My former laptop got damaged and I couldn't remember my Firefox password to restore my saved passwords.

So, when I reset password, all the old passwords in the former laptop didn't sync or rather were lost.

Now I have the Hard Disk of my former laptop and when I connected it to my new laptop and searched for Firefox "password" files I found passwords.json in a particular location: E:\***\****\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\4ee3ocax.default\weave\changes.

I am looking for a way I can import this password file and access them in my Firefox account in my new laptop.

Thanks

I'm a long time user of Firefox and have an email acct at AOL. Several days ago, as I was logging into AOL email (from Windows PC) I received a new notice that the login did not match my device and I would need to use a 2nd verify code (via cellphone). That worked and all was well. The next time I tried to log into AOL, the sequence repeated ... so, where does Firefox keep its host PC's ID ... can it be edited ? .... why did this start --- did I get hacked?

I suddenly cannot get Bing voice search to open and work/respond.. only images and regular search works!? Was fine until last week and even prior to an update from Firefox it stopped working on either pc's (one old windows 7 and new windows 10) It works on Edge browser and Fire Tablets, so I assume it is a Firefox issue ;( Has anyone else had this and how do I get it fixed?

I generally clear my history when I leave Firefox. Several times, my history, even more extensive than the present I eliminated, plus recent has been restored when I sign in the next time. How could this happen when I have manually gone in and cleared all my history? I had the computer on the 2nd most private setting, ith all the boxes checked and the warning that all the history would be removed. I checked the delete or remove box confirming that I wanted the history removed. What on earth would make it return when I am offline and computer is sleeping?
