Hi, I'm trying to recover an old session with 2k+ tabs, but I only have two recovery files (from today) and one previous.jsonlz4 from a couple of days ago.

Is there anyway to restore from before then, or is the session (and the tabs) completely lost?

Thank you

Since the last Firefox update, 84.0.2, I lose my menu bar. Ever since I started using Firefox in Windows, I have the menu bar active. This bar is very useful to me. Now with the new update, it is gone whenever I start Firefox new. I have tried resizing Firefox for Windows using the opposite arrows but the menu bar will not come back. I right click on the tabs bar and it show the menu bar checked. I can shut Firefox down and restart with the menu bar showing. This only happens on any new start of Firefox. Is there any way to prevent Firefox from not displaying my menu bar? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you. rcarrow53

Does anyone have experience with this phenomenon:

When you click on a torrent link on a page opened in Firefox 83 (and above), the first window pops up, but the second one (in which uTorrent would come) is no longer. Nothing happens. Specifically, the entry is C: \ ProgramData \ Microsoft \ Windows \ WER \ ReportArchive \ AppCrash_uTorrent.exe....

If I revert to Firefox 82 or 78.6esr, the error will not occur.

If I choose not to download uTorrent but to download the torrent file, it works fine with all versions of Firefox.

Hello!

I recently purchased a new laptop that has biometric capabilities and was very excited to implement it into my Mozilla for an even more secure browser. Come to find out (so I think), that the touch ID can only be used for "sensitive" information like credit cards, etc. Maybe I'm not looking hard enough, or I'm looking in the wrong place but what I would like to do is use touch ID on all of my autofills, even something as minor as a Webkinz account. I do know of the primary password, but obviously it's much faster and secure to use a fingerprint.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you in advance!

An update of Firefox today left me with a toolbar with precious acreage devoted to the large, clumsy and unnecessary "Other Bookmarks" tab. I read on this help site the technical solutions, which are way over my head (it is not even remotely clear how to get an "address bar," much less enter software instructions in it!). For the rest of us dummies out there, can someone tell me if it is possible to get rid of this Other Bookmarks button? (I say it is unnecessary because clicking on the very compact right-pointing double arrow-heads always takes one to Other Bookmarks -- no need to waste toolbar space with the actual words!). I have not found any solution to this problem. In my view, it was a bad idea to "add" this feature--it should be removed in future updates!

Hello Community,

I would like to start by sharing this screenshot with you as it help gain a better picture with the below info : https://snipboard.io/9z1FVU.jpg

I tried to access this URL (on my computer using Mozilla browser): torproject.org but after quite some time to load I got the error message in the screenshot.

I tried to access the same URL on my phone through the Mozilla app and it worked.

I have experienced the "The connection has timed out" with other websites as well.

Two questions.

1) Since I want to download Tor on my computer, how can I get it to even open up this webpage?

2) How can I prevent future "The connection has timed out" error messages?

I am looking forward to your assistance.

Thank you

About 25% of the time when I click on a link in YouTube or other places, or open in a new tab, the new tab appears but there is no "hourglass" to say it is processing. If I close the tab and do it again it works and there is an hourglass and then it completes. I think it started with 84.01 but got better on 84.0.2 but still happens maybe 10% of the time. Thanks

Hey team, I would like to know if there is a way to "name" the firefox window? I have multiple theme windows (for instance, one is for all recipes, one is for all news pages, one is for all online classes) with multiple tabs open and would like to find a way to navigate between them in an easier way. Naming them would be lovely, so I could name the window "recipes" and find the right one easier in the dock.

Anyone knows a trick? If it doesn't exist, any way to hint to the developers that this would be helpful? :) It could be just me though :)

Thank you for your thoughts,
