Hey

I have lost all session tabs for no reason, the menu items to restore session or recently closed tabs are inactive. This happens from time to time and its really annoying, is there a way to restore manually somehow?

Thanks!

For the past few days, Firefox has been running painfully slowly. I have tried to reset it, reinstall it and running Glary Utilities to clean but nothing has worked so far. I also have Opera and Chrome which are running absolutely fine. The program itself starts up fine but just seems to be very slow to load pages.

I am on Windows 10 with latest updates which is run on a separate SSD drive. Everything else runs very quickly like the resource heavy NoxPlayer.

Please let me know what further details I can provide you with.

Thank you in advance!

The first time I noticed the Megabar (I believe it was FF75) I absolutely hated everything about it and ruins the experience using Firefox. I am also not alone in this matter because as soon as the change was established, communities popped within hours to fix the problem. The old way of fixing this eyesore of an issue was the old about:config and changing around the settings then VIOLA! back to normal. Now after the update to 77, the Megabar is back and forced down everyone's throat and the old about:config is no longer the fix to this terrible experience. Literally after an hour of this trashbar being up, videos and guides popped up to try to fix it. Whole communities have been formed to hate this feature and ask Firefox to change it, or at least make it optional to go back. My question is, looking through google has only come up with the chrome.css(?) fix to this mess. Is there any way to change it back to the old url bar without having to go through the chrome.css fix or just uninstalling and reinstalling a previous Firefox or do I have to just migrate to another browser like Opera or Chromium?

While viewing news stories on MSN.com and clicking a link to a story with several pictures attached, the pictures will not display using Firefox but does display when using MS Edge browser. This started happening just recently. This happens with Win10 and Win7. Firefox is updated to 82.0.3 64 bit. . FYI Chase bank will not allow you to log in anymore using Firefox. Possibly related to the above problem ?

I think I have a bug to report:

When I browse a website with an embedded PDF viewer (must be a Firefox default viewer because I haven't installed any other plug-ins), a notification bar on top of the website (right under the bookmark bar) pops up saying (translated from German): [Icon: ?] The PDF-document is not displayed correctly. [Button: "view with other app"] [Button: "x" for closing the bar].

The PDF viewer works, so the error seems unneccessary, but what really bothers me is that the bar can't be closed. Clicking the X-button on the very right doesn't work - the bar frozen until I restart the browser or close the tab. This problem exists already since summer, so at least for 2 or more updates.

I am using an iMac running OSX 10.12.6. Firefox version 82.0.2.

For the last couple of weeks I have found that I am often unable to open many links on websites while using Firefox. I click on the link and nothing happens. If I hover over the link, I will see a URL in the bottom left of the page.

I have not found any particular pattern for what links work/don't work, it seems to be pretty random.

I suspect this is something simple that I just am not aware of. I'd really appreciate any ideas to get Firefox working correctly again. Currently I am being forced to use Chrome on many of my usual sites where Firefox will not work.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Firefox doesn't show sent messages in Gmail. Neither individual sent messages nor conversations that include sent messages. The message lists display fine, but when I try to open a message / conversation it only shows a blank page. Currently the version of Firefox on this computer is 83.0 (64-bit), although the problem occurs since the most recent versions. It only happens with Gmail. Yahoo! and AIM work fine. Doesn't happen in Chrome or Edge

Hello everyone,

I had the SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER problem for a few months. I just reinstalled completely Windows and the problem was gone. Now 2 days later I get this message again when I want to go on sites like google, amazon, youtube, etc.

I don't use any antivirus but I runned a scan with Windows Defender and Clam and found nothing.

I just upgraded to the new Firefox relase and the problem remains.

Read all the articles about this issue and found no solution. The problem doesn't appear with other web browsers such as Microsoft Edge.

With Firefox 68.12.0esr and 78.3.1esr I can get to outlook.com. I cannot sign in. Browser responds per attachment.

I've tried;

  • No A/V products running or even installed
  • Renamed Hosts file
  • Rebooted PC
  • Set content blocking to standard
  • Disabled in turn each of url filters, keyword filters and network services filters on my router
  • Run Firefox in safe mode

Windows 10 1809 LTSC. We use only Firefox. No other browsers installed.

Why might only this particular website of all the we use have this problem?

For the past week I continue to get page is not responding, stop it or wait message across the top. Allllllll pages, not just social media. it only happens in FireFox. I have ran trouble shooters, reset, etc. Same problem after running for an hour.

Since the last update. Or is that a coincidence?

it takes me tooooo long to get a job done I do not want to use any other browser but starting to think I may need to. FireFox eats up as much CPU and Memory as Google Chrome, which I stopped using because it cause my system to nearly crash. It ate up so much resources.

Yes, ran without plugins. Same issue. yes I run two to three pages at a time. Yes tried doing one at a time.

Same.

Frustrated.
