Hi,

After losing my session history and bookmarks from using firefox's "forget last 5 minutes" feature on accident, I used shadowcopyview to create a backup of my old profile. Now, after two reinstalls, I still cannot recover my session or bookmarks, even when replacing the old profile entirely.

JeffersonCher's wonderful scrounger has helped me to recover from a similiar blunder in the past, but this time, attempting to recover the session from a recovery file gave me 3 websites I haven't visited in 2 years and an error message when attempting to recover the bookmarks.

Anything you can provide would be a big help: I am very confused on how to really proceed.

Thanks!

Hello everyone,

I'm an avid user of Firefox latest on Manjaro, up to date.

Since yesterday, when I updated from Firefox 87.0-1 to 87.0-2, I have a strange bug using DuckduckGo.

What happens ?

  • When on DuckduckGo result page, clicking a link won't open when using the "Open in another tab" setting
  • I will open the link if that setting is not used
  • I can open it in a new tab with the right-click menu, or by ctrl-clicking it.
  • When hovering above a link, the bottom-left tooltip does show up and the cursor does become a hand, suggesting the link should work. Alas, it doesn't.

What did I try ?

  • I did restart in "safe mode", with all addons disabled.
  • I did reset the cache.
  • I tried testing the same behavior on Google, and it did work as expected.
  • I tried DDG in another browser (Gnome Web/Epiphany), and it worked as expected.

I have yet to notice the same issue with any other website. Any Idea where I should report this minor, but annoying but ?

Thanks & Cheers, -- JAB

So for the second time this month my bookmarks in my toolbar have disappeared. I was signed into my Firefox account both times they went missing. I tired to restore from backup...... nothing. I made sure that the tool bar was enabled.... nothing. I'm so frustrated, as I am in full-time school with three days left in my term and all my textbooks and course sites are GONE!! I don't understand why this keeps happening.

Help!

When I attempted to do a post purchase customer survey, the scoundrels at Target tricked me into installing an incredibly invasive, suspicious SearchesCentral browser, which has now replaced my Firefox browser. What can I say? I am not very computer saavy. How do I undo this ghastly error, and remove this potentially dangerous software from my brand new laptop?

Hi !

Firefox asked me again to create a new profile. Third or forth time within a month or two. Nothing serious, I have to admit, takes a few minutes to recover bookmarks, reset duckduckgo as default search engine, etc., but why is it happening? Version 87.0, Windows 10, 64 bit.

And while I'm here... I use to download a lot of webpages, for information purposes, it's easier than to bookmark them all. Doesn't work correctly for a while now, they are not saved as webpages, but as something resembling html-format (or however to describe it)... Still working with Edge and Opera, so it must be a Firefox issue. And after each update Firefox was reset to French language automatically one or two days later, this also does not happen any more. I'm neither English nor French native speaker, so again, not a real problem, but why is it happening? or rather not happening any more?

Just curious... Thanks in advance for any hint Best regards Michael

Hi, I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about what is going on with this issue. I am using Firefox 78.9.0esr (64-bit), with the latest Acrobat reader. I've had no problems with any sites or links other than those at the Environmental Protection Agency. For many weeks, actually months now, I have been unable to access any (I've tried more than 40 different ones) Pesticide Labels. Every time, no matter the route - typed address, Ag. Ext. program link, directly from the EPA's pesticide label search page, I receive this error message: "An error occurred during a connection to www3.epa.gov. The OCSP server suggests trying again later. Error code: SEC_ERROR_OCSP_TRY_SERVER_LATER The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem." For instance Lorsban 75WG, as I attempt on the page https://iaspub.epa.gov/apex/pesticides/f?p=113:8:::NO::P8_PUID,P8_RINUM:38268,62719-301 to open the label pdf by clicking on "November 19, 2013 (PDF)," which should then open the label at https://www3.epa.gov/pesticides/chem_search/ppls/062719-00301-20131119.pdf . Instead, I receive the above error message. I have, of course, contacted the EPA about this, several times. Thanks.

whenever i boot up my computer, firefox automatically starts atleast 9 tasks in background that end up eating half of my ram, and one of them eats an entirety of my processor. Whenever i check my task manager(i use windows 10), it shows that one particular task is taking 100% of my cpu. I have to manually stop the task or it ends up slowing down my laptop. I already have the latest version of firefox and i am having this problem for 2-3 months. What do i do?

Hello,

Everytime I start typing "Facebook.com" into the addressbar the first suggestion is a site "Fastcompany.com." I will often just type "Fa" and hit enter which takes me to fastcompany.com instead of facebook.com. Firefox never used to do this. I am unable to delete fastcompany.com from the suggested list. I have tried every method, checked my bookmarks, delted my history, cleared all cookies and cache, I even installed an addon to block the site but the suggestion still remains. How do I remove it so that when I type "fa" and press enter I go to facebook instead of fastcompany?

Thanks

cześć, Posiadam OS Big Sur Mac Mini i mam pytanie, dlaczego na tym komputerze nie działa zapamiętywanie otwartych kart (przywracanie sesji)? Zaznaczyłam w opcjach: przywracanie poprzednich sesji, ale to nie działa. Nie rozumiem tego. Jak miałam Windowsa, to nigdy nie było z tym problemu. A pracuje przy kilkudziesięciu otwartych kartach i nie wyobrażam sobie, żebym miała je za każdym razem otwierać pojedynczo... Z jednej grupy wsparcia Apple dostałam informacje, że Mac ma swoją przeglądarkę: Safarii i żebym jej zaczęłam używać. Ale ja nie chcę innej przeglądarki. Mam za dużo zapamiętanych kart, żeby je przenosić i nie chcę uczyć się kolejnej aplikacji. Dodatkowo powiedziano mi, że Mac nie lubi innych oprogramowań niż swoje. Idąc tym torem, nie można by używać Photoshopa, Adobe PDF, i wiele wiele innych aplikacji, bo Mac ich nie wyprodukował... To jakiś absurd! Proszę o pomoc, jak otwierać przeglądarkę z kartami z poprzedniej sesji?
