Whenever I open Firefox, it opens every tab from my previous session. I don't want this - if I closed the window, it was because I wanted it closed, and I don't need any automated system to re-open everything on the off chance I was wrong. I believe the setting for this is on the General tab, but as you can see in the attached screenshot, it's definitely off, yet the feature won't go away. I also tried changing the config settings, as listed here:

https://askubuntu.com/questions/1285172/firefox-always-restores-windows-and-tabs-after-reboot

, but it had no effect.

How do I stop Firefox opening these tabs without permission?

I can't download anything anymore. I get the "failed" message. I see in support questons that this has been going on for a long time even though there have been repeated "fixes" reported. I've used Firefox for a long time and really prefer it, but I'm having to change to Chrome to be able to complete my work.

Greetings, I am a 77 year old geezer and I have been using Firefox for probably 25 or 30 years. PROBLEMS: 1) bulk emails sent to my customers are rejected by mostly gmail accounts. 2) Emails sent to me of airline group bookings arrive as pages of code that I cannot read. THESE TWO ISSUES ARE NEW PROBLEMS I HAVE NEVER SEEN BEFORE -- STARTED ABOUT 3 MONTHS AGO 3) How do I move/transfer all of my address books/database to a gmail account?

Like I mentioned, I am a geezer, so please be gentle as I understand none of this. Thanks, Walt

Why is Firefox suddenly not remembering any of my logins or passwords? When I go into Preferences > Security, the box to "remember logins and passwords for websites" is checked. When I click on saved passwords they all are there. The do you want to save box is there if I have changed a login, or added a new web site. I am not in private browsing mode. The problem seems to happen every time I install the latest Firefox update, or Windows 10 Pro updates. Some of my apps want to know if I am using a new device.

When visiting some smaller and less known websites on my computer it shows the error message "connection has timed out" but on my laptop it loads just fine. Both run firefox and are sync'd with the same configuration and extensions. I already tried the troubleshoot mode and also checked the firewall. Is there anything else I can try to fix this?
