I'm still using windows professional 7, it works for the most part. Unfortunately often the browser won't load or it will load and runs very slowly, then it shows a box saying close previous firefox. When it is running slowly I often have to hit the browser many times until the box shows up saying close previous firefox. Is this something to do with windows 7 or another completely different issue.

Goodd day from UK I run firefox esr 115.9.1 and find the the F5 refresh key does NOT refresh the images. The same applies when using the "reload" icon in the menu.

Reading other posts, nothing seems to apply here.

There are NO add-ons at all and everything is cleared on close. The text DOES seem to change.

As a web developer checking updates this is extremely annoying as only hope is keep closing the browser (to clear everything) and restart - the loads new images etc.

I use several versions of Firefox (2, 20, 56) to ensure compatability with olf browsers and it seems to be only those over 100 with this issue.

Does anyone know if this is a "feature" or a"bug" and is there any simple (!) way around the issue?

Thanks

p.s. ALWAYS happens, not intermittently

Can anyone explain this, and should I be worried (CAD is a Python term used in uploading code). Thank you.

When I clicked troubleshooting mode FF unexpectedly closed my Private browsing session and all the tabs. How do I reopen them?

I did not expect FF to close on me like that. I thought that as I was in a private browsing session FF would have warned me that it was about to close had it been necessary.

I'm guessing that my open tabs have been lost permanently because you didn't warn me and that all that time I spent is now wasted.

Life is really simple except that other people make it problematic.

FireFox has been crashing for the past few weeks, that is not the biggest problem, but it also does that during a restore session. Which makes me lose everything I've been doing, the simplest solution I've found is reopening almost all of the tabs from last week, which is about 600 tabs that I then go through and get rid of what I don't need. That takes a lot of time, and my internet connection is not that good. which means that I will lose a large part of what I was working on the next time FireFox crashes during a restore session. Is there anything I can do to prevent Firefox from crashing?

I have had no trouble using Firefox for many years and am able to access all/any websites excepting for one which upto a few months ago I had no trouble with. The one that I am unable to access is

  https://www.scc-online.org 

and all I get is the "The connection has timed out.." comment on an otherwise blank screen. I have contacted the webmaster who says that I am the only one with this problem. My neighbour who uses MS Edge has no trouble in displaying the website. He uses the same ISP as I do but uses Windows 11.

The webmaster says that it might be that I am using Windows 7 64bit and that Firefox cannot handle this particular website. Alternatively he suggested that my ISP was the cause of the problem although I have been using the current ISP for over 20 years and have never had this type of problem.

I have three computers all with Windows 7 and Firefox and they all have the same problem.

Is there any help available for me as the information on the "website" is important and I do not wish to have to go to my neighbour to view the website?

Hi.

Is there a way to display a column in the bookmark manager (Ctrl+Shift+O) which would show in which folder each particular bookmark is?

Is there a way to search for bookmarks (in the bookmark manager or the bookmark sidebar (Ctrl+B)) by specifically excluding certain (bookmark) folders (e.g. MySessions, Save for Read Later, BSP2 trash folder, etc)?

If the above is not available, please kindly consider those ever since important features.

Thank you very much :)

I closed all my tabs and reopened the browser bc I was getting lag on sites like X.com when typing my messages. Immediately after opening Firefox again, my homepage, MSN.com was loaded. I tried to click on the arrow to scroll through the different headline stories and nothing happened. I used Chrome & Opera to load the same page and they work fine. This seems like a Firefox thing. I have no extensions or permissions that deny me the right to click on anything. What is the problem?

To log into my mortgage lender's site I have to enter my email address. Beside this field is the Facebook container symbol; mousing over it warns me that if I enter my email here, Facebook can track me. Mortgage Lender used to allow me to log in with a user name, but now requires my email address, which apparently gives Facebook access to track me. Tried speaking to the lender about this, but they simply assert there are no Facebook trackers on their site. So, any workaround for this besides just doing all my business with them by phone from now on?

Hi, I installed the new update yesterday. This morning, I cannot access anything through my usual Firefox browser. I'm making this report from Google - which is working fine on the same computer. When I try to access any websites, the usual tab opens with a greyed-out "X" (or hourglass?) on the left of the tab - then nothing happens. I've tried restarting - no luck. I suspect yesterday's update was flawed/had a glitch. Please help.
