Firefox somehow got corrupted and I had to reinstall. In the process I lost all my bookmarks. I found a number of JSONLZ4 files in an "Old Firefox Data" folder and copied the most recent one to my desktop, then tried to do a restore from it. Nothing. What am I doing wrong? Thanks very much...the loss of my bookmarks is a major catastrophe, any help in getting them back is much appreciated.

I am responding to jscher2000, who posted to my question a short while ago about the loss of my bookmarks and being unable to restore. Thanks very much for the fast response. I checked the Places Database section of Troubleshooting, and as you suggested it does say "The places.sqlite database is sane", and "The favicons.sqlite database is sane". So I assume that's good? Now what do I do? Again, many thanks for the assistance.

Hi!

My system: Win7, FF79.0 32-bit, ru

  1. After updating from version 78.0.2, Google and Youtube sites stopped opening normally:
  2. After opening the browser everything works fine.
  3. A few minutes later, errors about blocking downloads from Google resources appear in the console (gstatic, ytimg, google-analytics, googlevideo, etc.).

Reason: "CORS request did not succeed - Third-party request blocked: single source policy denies reading remote resource" or "CORS Failed". Also suggestions from Google in the search bar stop working.

  1. After a while, these sites stop opening at all.

Reason: "This error page has no error code in its security info" in the console on the page "Error establishing secure connection" (connection-not-secure).

Only restarting the browser helps. Disabling add-ons, resetting cache and cookies does not help. Downgrade to version 78.0.2 is not possible - the profile may crash :(

Please, help!

The results of searches are always dominated by US sites. I live in Ireland and sites from Ireland, Europe generally, Australia, India, Middle East, are more relevant to me. Is there a search term such as "Not US"? I don't want to exclude America totally, just push those results further down the list.

Hello,

  How do I change my security back to Standard from Strict.  I recently changed it to Strict because I thought there were too many cookies and Ads when browsing.   Now when I got to my websites like Banking and Medical they have to text me a code first to complete the login.

I can't remember what I did or where I was just know it's a pain and need to go back to before.

Thanks, Roni

I installed the uBlock Origin add on to stop ads while watching youtube. I restarted the computer. uBlock Origin is in Add Ons, and is switched on. However, I am still receiving ads. First ad is before the clip plays. After 5 seconds, I can end the ad. Second ad is really intrusive. It interrupts the clip. Perhaps I misunderstood the capabilities of uBlock Origin, or how to use it. I would appreciate any recommendations Firefox version on my Windows 7 PC is: 79.0 (64-bit) Thanks.

I have Windows 7 and Firefox browser 79.0 (64bit).

I followed all troubleshooting steps: Firefox was "refreshed"; theme is default; all extensions were removed; hardware acceleration disabled.

Now, if I restart Firefox in Safe mode - the problem disappears. When I start it normally, the problem persists.

Can anyone help to troubleshoot this?

Thanks.

Tab session manager: not possible to reload tabs from previous session

Hello experts, I have a problem: I had a session window open with 116 tabs open and I cannot re-open them after restert of FireFox. I use the newest Firefox version 79.0 (64-Bit) on Windows 7 Pro SP1 and the extension "Tab Session Manager" I closed FireFay and as usual, after I restartef it, I waited for the opening of the series of my previous opened tabs. FireFax opened 117 tbs but did not fill in the URLs. They were all opened as new tabs. So I tried to open FireFox with deactivated add-ons. There it was possible to restore all the tabs. After that I closed FireFox again and opened it the usual way. It opened 116 tabs but they were all empty. I used the Add-on manager to shut down my extensions leaving only the tab session manager, AdblockPlus, NoScript. After restarting te tabs were empty again. In the list of the tab session manager I could find the sessions with 116 empty tabs (see ErrorTabSessionManager0.gif) but also the last session with the original tabs. See image ErrorTabSessionManager1.gif. I could even save this list from TabSessionManager. I updated PabSessionmanager to the newest version but that did not help. How can I get FireFox to load these previous tabs again, some of them are very important for me ? thanks for any help Jochen

For about the last 5 hours, when I download Firefox, nothing syncs after I log in -- no add-ons, no bookmarks, no history. I've seen no mention of this on the support page.

I first noticed this about 3 pm Sunday, EDT.

Is no one else experiencing this?

Cannot Log into Yahoo mail on Firefox

I got an automatic update from Opera that I did not ask for, so all of my logins were lost. After recovering them and signing in, when I closed Opera, all of my freaking logins were gone again. There is no way to stop this from happening, because Opera likes to make it difficult to stop auto-updates and to stop passwords/usernames from being wiped out when closing Opera. OK, fine. I'll go back to Firefox, then.

So when trying to login to my Yahoo mail account on Firefox there is a challenge page that sends a verification code to my Android phone. I clicked yes, but there is no place to put the verification from the challenge page. When I go back to the Yahoo mail login page, it goes back to the challenge page again, sending a verification to my Android again. This does not happen in Opera, but there is still the issue of being kicked out of all of my social media, email accounts every freaking time.

I have WORK to do and am not interested in being a coder. I am a writer. So how can I stop this from happening? I would like to go on with my freaking life!

Below is a screen-cap of the challenge screen. Do you see any way to get past it? NO! the only thing that is possible is to get to the goddamn Help screen. I don't want any Help. I want to log into my Yahoo mail. Again, this is not happening in Opera, but Opera keeps kicking me out of my logins.

I have a serious "complaint" that Firefox 79 (32-bit) under Windows 7 Pro SP1 plus fixes does a very poor job of limiting its proportion of memory usage, or running cleanup automatically as per the about:memory "Minimize memory usage" button's action. Can some optimisation be done to alleviate this, say every 15mins perform this function automatically?

Workarounds: 1) Log off/Sign out of tab and close it. Open new tab and reload bookmarked URL. Move tab to former position, as necessary. 2) Close and re-open Firefox entirely.
