Hi,

I factory restarted my computer and reinstalled Firefox. When I signed into my Firefox account, all my bookmarks showed up but none of my tabs were loaded. I figured out how to load my tabs up from my previous session but all my bookmarks then deleted. I tried to re-sync but none of the tabs showed up. When I try to restore my bookmarks from the manage bookmarks library, it does not appear. I do not have a backup file for my bookmarks.

I tried waiting a couple of days and attempting a login again. I also tried turning off my VPN, using a new tab, refreshing the site and restarting my laptop. I do not get this message when I use Safari to login, but I want to use Firefox.

Thanks for your help in fixing this problem.

Sorry, not sure where to put it for the "topic".

Tried this link: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recover-user-data-missing-after-firefox-update

I see TWO profiles listed.

As the current one isn't what I want I try the second one "launch in new browser" - as said in the notes.

All that does is throw me back to the "welcome to Firefox" page.

No, it isn't the end of the world, but I had a few open windows/tabs. (By comparison to this machine which has A LOT of windows and tabs open)

They were useful/used/needed stuff.

It is a DIFFERENT MACHINE to this one. I haven't logged in here from the OTHER machine - may in the future if required/asked.

I'll try to leave well enough alone for now, but I do need that machine and this is a huge bump in the usual smooth flow of things.

BTW - just mentioning. MANY sites showed/suggested how to restore previous sessions but they all point to the HISTORY menu and then show RESTORE OLD SESSIONS.

Doesn't exist on either of my machines.

No data shared as this is NOT the machine with the problem.

I am running a dual monitor setup. My primary monitor's resolution is 3440x1440, and my secondary is 3840x2160.


The text on my Firefox toolbars and menus looks very clear on my secondary monitor (3840x2160), it looks as I would expect it to; however, on my primary monitor (3440x1440) it's smaller which makes it pixelated meaning it's much less clear. I've been using Firefox for about an hour and I'm already bugged enough to post here.


Due to the different resolutions I need to keep the layout.css.devPixelsPerPx in about:config to the default -1.0 so the windows scale as per my Windows 11 settings.

I know theres an existing problem with tabs for firefox but I don't think this is exactly the same because my normal tabs are totally fine.

Printing Double sided

I am extremely frustrated with Firefox and it’s printing. This has been going on for quite some time. You’ve been playing around with what was a good and functional printer interface to one that is now a pice of junk! I have been using Mozilla since it was Netscape 2.0

I am running firefox Ver 115.3.1 esr 64 bit on a Dell Desktop running Win 7. In the past I go to a print preview and see how the print out would look on the page. I could also control, my printer functions, like color or black and white, and the quality of the printout.

Today my wife (not real computer savy) started printing several PDF files for compilation into a book/user help package. After she had printed out several articles and well over 20 pages she mentioned to me that the printer wasn’t printing correctly. I asked her what she ment. She showed me. She was printing double sided (to conserve paper). After she went to the printer and looked at the printout they were all wrong. The front side was fine, but the back side was upside down. So when she would put them in a binder, should could the 1st page fine, then flip the page, and you’d have to turn the binder over to read the 2nd page, then turn the binder around again to read the 3rd page.

This isn’t my idea of double sided. It would be fine if I was using a flip chart but not in a binder. So now I’m sitting on over 20 pages of scrap, not to mention how much ink I wasted at about $50/Black cartridge.

I sit down and try to see what she’d done. So I bring up a document, and want to print ONLY page 1 & 2 doublesided so I limit my waste of paper and ink. Sure enough it prints the backside upside down. So I change from flipping long side to flipping short side and try again. Same problem, 2nd page is upside down. I also notice that there is NO print preview, and I can no longer have access to “Printing Preferences” which allow me to change from black & white to color and vise versa, set the quality of the printout. All I can control is Black & White vs. Color, what pages I want to print and portrait & landscape.

I go over to my other desktop running Win 11 and Firefox V 119.0 (64 bit) and try printing double sided. It gives me the same options as Ver 115.3.1 esr 64 bit, AND it gives me a preview screen. So I select double sided printing and it prints the 2nd page upside down. UNSAT!

I’m in this fix because sometime in the past I did an update and you had changed the printer interface. I don’t know when it was changed, maybe before COVID. But it sure hasn’t helped me. So far I’m out over 20 pages of paper, don’t know how much printer ink, and over 3 hours in trying to figure out what’s giong on, then trying to get help, and then having you web sit drop the page I was working on so I lost this posting. Then I got smart and did it in my word processor. All in all a really frustrating day!!

Hope someone has some ideas.

Hi. I feel like this problem has only shown up in the last couple months but for some reason, on firefox, when say watching something on youtube and I go to pause or skip around in the video I'll get this very unpleasant distorted digital noise sound very briefly. I've tried turning off and back on hardware acceleration and some other things but no dice. I can hear the distortion on my onboard sound, my usb headset, and hdmi audio through the graphics card so I don't think its my hardware. This distortion also doesn't happen with say MPC/VLC or watching Youtube via Edge or Chrome.

This has been bugging me for ages. Happened on Windows 10 and now on Windows 11.

I start watching some video on YouTube or whatever, decide it's not useful/what I want, stop playing it, close the tab or navigate away, but if my device locks, the controls for this old, discarded video, that I didn't want to watch, are on the lock screen.

I wouldn't mind if it was a video I was currently watching but it's somehow remembering the last thing I started to watch. I can see no hint anywhere else that it's still active in any way at all.

The only way to get rid seems to be to close Firfox.

This is very annoying because it seems you can't watch anything without Firefox remembering it and putting on the lock screen until the end of the session, so it could be cluttering things up all day unless I close everything and (in my case, because of prvicy settings) delete cookies and log myself out of most sites.

I've tried multiple searches but all I've found here is a post about turning off media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled but I don't actually want to do that, I just want Firefox to forget videos when I've closed the tab or navigated away from them.

Elsewhere I found a suggestion to disable dom.media.mediasession.enabled but that setting isn't found.

Any help much appreciated.
