One feature at www.weather.com (Weather Channel) is their "weather in motion" feature which loads interactive weather radars. For some reason, this is not working on my Firefox browser. It works fine in Chrome and Edge. The weather.com website loads just fine but the radar data (overlay on a map) will not load. IT WORKS FINE IN SAFE MODE. So i tried to disable all of my plug-in's, extensions and hardware acceleration in Firefox in regular mode. Still doesn't work. I created a new profile. Still doesn't work. I disabled the tracker feature in Firefox on that web page. Still doesn't work. I uninstalled and reinstalled Adobe Flash. Still doesn't work. Any ideas???

Hi Im writing this post from my kids laptop but the problem is with my computer. I was in the middle of something when computer froze and it is now dead. I was able to check if I can access files from live cd and yeah I can see my files but I need to reinstall windows7. When I do it I will loose my files. I need to recover few more things than just files. The question to you is... how can I recover all my tabs, my open session, all logins, passwords etc in Firefox?. Im hoping it is stored somehow deep in windows and I can just copy/paste these files to new reinstalled windows7

Forbidden. You don't have permission to access / on this server. Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request. It has worked fine on this system and this browser before and still works fine in Vivaldi. No changes in AV software and no improvement when all extensions disabled. What could be causing it in FF (latest stable, Win 10)?

Q: Does anyone know if Firefox has maybe re-instated pinch zoom functionality for Mac users?

Or if there is a decent work around available yet?

And if not, anyone have a good answer as to why Firefox overlooked it in their last major update? Seems rather shortsighted to me. Not being able to pinch zoom on my mac trackpad is highly frustrating. It's pretty much a deal breaker, making me want to migrate back to Chrome or elsewhere. Which is sad, because I thought I'd finally escaped Google for browsing.

hi all i'm having a problem with firefox browser, its not keeping my website logged in. This does not occur after i close my browser but after a few hours of log in, even if i leave the browser opened and come again back later.

I've been using firefox for ages now and never really had this issue. It has only starting happening only recently, since early this week or last week the most.

I've also manually cleared all cookies/log in etc and updated firefox to the latest version maybe it helps, but nothing changed.

Please note that I do not clear history/active log in etc neither it is set up to do it automatically when i close browser also i do not have any 3rd party apps that forbid cookies. I had a firefox addon before but disabled it maybe it was interfering, but it still didnt resolve the problem.

any help much appreciated as it is getting quite irritating. Thanks in advance Lee

Hello,

I'm not sure when it started, maybe a week ago. When I open firefox, I'm logged out of "most" of my accounts sometimes. I'll log back in and it will last a few browser closing and reopenings. Some websites seem to log out quicker, or it's possibly just random.

I've been using Firefox for a very long time and I've never had an issue like this. It's frustrating because I have to go through 2-factor each time a website logs me out. And so far, it hasn't happened to Discord in browser. It affects Gmail, Hotmail, Twitter, Facebook, and Reddit.

I did not change any settings recently until after it started happening (I set "Enhanced Tracking Protection" to standard thinking it would help but it hasn't).

Thank you.

I've used Firefox for several years. Up until recently, anytime I would type the beginning of a heavily visited site, I could simply hit enter and it would autocomplete the website for me. It doesn't do that anymore, and I either have to type out the entire website, click it in the 'suggestions' that drop down, or click it in my bookmarks. I used to be able to type 'gmai' and hit enter to go to gmail, now it just searches 'gmai' on Google. Is there some setting I'm missing? This is extremely frustrating.

I subscribe to a number of separate "Things" hosted by a single company (silly example) http://stuffstuff.co.uk. My user name for each of the separate things is "mr-silly@silly.co.uk" and the only thing that differentiates them is that each "Thing" requires a different password.

Thing 1 Username: mr-silly@silly.co.uk Password: 1sillything Thing 2 Username: mr-silly@silly.co.uk Password: 2anothersillything Thing 3 Username: mr-silly@silly.co.uk Password: 3moresillything

and so on...

Unfortunately this Lockwise thing will not permit this to happen, presenting the following stupid message.

"An entry for http://stuffstuff.co.uk with that username already exists. Go to existing entry?"

How do I get around this Lockwise silliness?

The email address is required as the user name by the company.

Don't suggest having a different email address for each user name, that is not possible.

While the question maybe posed in a silly manner  :-) I am quite serious about the problem. Thanks Ax

I had like over 100 tabs lol but I had a Windows Update. My laptop froze while I had Firefox open. After the laptop restarted, I realized the new patches didn't get applied before Windows started up again, so after Windows started back up, (I did not open Firefox at all during this cycle) I went to Windows Update and hit Restart to apply the updates. After the updates got patched in and Windows restarted, I went to open Firefox and it just opens the home page.

I do have Restore Previous Session upon Startup checkmarked.

Tried restoring from the 3 line Menu button but the Restore option is not there.

Did try under History in the Menu bar but my Recently Closed Windows and Recently Closed Tabs are greyed out.

Tried the Library icon's Recently Closed Windows and Recently Closed Tabs within History and they both show up as (Empty)

Went to my Profile's folder into the sessionstore-backups folder and there's only 2 small 44kb files there both that were created when I started Firefox up: recovery.baklz4 and recovery.jsonlz4 ... the sessionstore-backups folder itself was also created when I started up Firefox after my Windows Update.

I read thru stuff like https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1204253 I do not have any files that have previous.jsonlz4 or upgrade.jsonlz4 like mentioned in my sessionstore-backups folder... not sure if they may be somewhere else like in 1 of the Temp folders somewhere else in Windows folder.

If I uninstall last Windows Updates, would it revert my Firefox Profiles folder to what it previous was or does Uninstalling last Windows Updates have no effect on the Firefox folder?

If I upload a file for an email attachment, google drive upload, etc when I first select "browse" for the file it opens File Explorer in the Desktop directory.

How do I change that to default to the directory I always work from, say for example C:\tmp.

I've seen numerous questions about this with answers that it opens the last directory used, which is true if I do it multiple times, but if I close Firefox and restart it, when I select "browse" it again defaults to the Desktop.

I've also seen answers saying it is controlled by the site being uploaded true. Again this is absolutely not true. I do everything from C:\tmp. Downloads, uploads, editing, searching, etc. And every time I upload a file after starting Firefox fresh after a reboot, again, it defaults to the Desktop even though I'm on the same site (gmail) I was when I last uploaded a file.

As far as the answers saying that was the last directory used, that is false. I do not use the desktop for anything. Not storing icons, not downloading files, not uploading files. I have never uploaded a file from Desktop in my life.

So can anyone answer this without saying 'last directory used' or 'controlled by the website'?

However, then Firefox always opens to those tabs when I start a new window.

Hi,

it's the second time that I found a mail from "Firefox <Mozilla@e.mozilla.org>" in my spam folder. Its links seem suspicious to me, beginning with "https://click.e.mozilla.org/" followed by long sequences of digits and letters. The mail's text is identical with parts of the German site "https://www.mozilla.org/de/". Subject line is "Schütze das Web, das du liebst". Maybe it's no spam/phishing, but I want to be shure.

Probably I'm wrong here, but I couldn't find a better place to post this. If so, could anyone tell me the right place to report this?

Thanks a lot! Thomas
