So here is my issue. I have about 500 tabs open on my Firefox browser. Whenever I need to restart my computer, I close my session, restart, reopen Firefox and it loads my entire session no problem. The neat thing about this is that when I do this, the tab title (along with the website icon) is preserved but the actual page only reloads when I switch to that tab. For example, imagine I have a YouTube video titled "Programming in Python", the tab would say "Programming in Python - YouTube" with the YouTube logo to the left of the title. There is definitely some kind of cache magic going on because say if that video was taken down on YouTube, the title would still be preserved until I switch to that tab. In my latest reloaded session, I noticed that tabs #250-500 failed to load the tab title and instead show the website URL with the icon I attached below. Is there any way to reload these tab titles without actually refreshing the page manually one by one (kinda like how Firefox does it on startup)? This is kinda how I navigate and it isn't helpful seeing just a URL.

I can use firefox to browse any other sites, but when I ask to go to Outlook, after 2 years of doing this daily, it says it has no program to open it. It feels like it is stuck in some cycle. The only thing I can think of doing was downloading photos the day before and mailing them out directly. Outlook is working fine on chrome so it is a firefox/outlook problem. Any suggestions?

I'm a Firefox Developer Edition user. After upgrading my Firefox to 69.0b1, I see a problem about network and extension:

In the same network, the case when the browser stuck at loading the page content has been more frequent (especially on script-rich sites like Twitter). At that case, the extension menu is irresponsive (which means that when I click on it, it only shows a pop-up with nothing in it). Closing all loading tabs doesn't solve this. After a long time after the loading starts, the tabs suddenly continue to load and the extension pages come back responsive.

All other audio files play without a problem in Firefox, the Facebook Messenger audio files seem to be the only ones affected. This has been a continuing problem under all Windows versions of Firefox for at least the past 6 months. I'm using Windows 10, version 1803 and Firefox, both automatically updated to the latest downloads.

I work with HTML website themes daily. I use the firefox browser for all of my design work and I have recently noticed that firefox does not show web icons such as font awesome or any other web icons. The web icons are properly coded into the theme and they show up fine in all other browsers (chrome, edge, explorer, safari).

I did some research on it and I did find this: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/CORS but I don't know if that has anything at all to do with it or not.

If the problem is due to Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) then how would I fix that issue as the fonts are being served directly from the theme files?

Thank you

Other observed behavior: At the gmail log-in, I opted to have firefox not ask me for the 2-factor authentication in this device, but firefox ALWAYS asks for it.

I have attempted to ask about this TWICE already and can't find my questions.

I am using Firefox as portable app, with --no-remote --profile "%profile_path%". I update it regularly, it's convenient for me to see notifications of new updates and install them whenever I see fit. I recently noticed that Firefox creates a folder on every computer C:\ProgramData\Mozilla\updates, which is not good for the portable version, really. The only way to stop this I found was to completely disable updates via distribution\policies. I don't want to. How do I get firefox to notify me of updates and download them to a USB flash drive (it will be perfect if i could specify folder for this purpose) instead of leaving files on other people's computers?

I'm trying to debug a userscript that seems to be going into an endless loop on just one certain page. The page freezes and never finishes drawing and the script never finishes running.

However, while it's in the loop, the debugger, console, and performance profiler all stop working, as if they're waiting for it to finish. Those are the tools I need to see what it's so busy doing that it never finishes... if they freeze, I have no way of troubleshooting. How do I get the developer tools not to freeze during script execution?

We have a page where we just added <link rel="icon" type="image/ico" href="/other-path/favicon.ico"/> to the header, but while Firefox reads that link and includes the information in the page (can see in "View Page Info" -> Media), the .ico file specified is overridden by Firefox assuming that <page-path>/favicon.ico is where it should find the favicon. Is this the expected behavior? Every other browser follows this pattern, but Firefox does not (since at least Firefox 39 when I did some testing). Should I write this up in bugzilla?
