Recently having problems with very slow running and freezing so performed a refresh. Now I seem to have lost all my tabs that automatically opened when starting Firefox. Can I get them back from the Old Firefox Data folder that the Refresh process created on my Desktop or do I have to start again and remember all 78 tabs that used to be on my Home Page?

So I have several accounts logged-in in Gmail:

/u/0 <- my main one /u/1 /u/2 /u/3

... but in Youtube I always used my /u/1 account, I have all my playlists there, etc.. and I want to have my /u/1 logged-in there as the main one while I also have my /u/0 as the main one in Gmail. I come from Opera and I didn't have any problem doing this, I just log-in in the desired order in Gmail, and then I log-in in Youtube with the account that I want. But in Firefox it links my gmail with my youtube, so if I log-out my /u/0 in youtube, it also logs out from Gmail. So when I put the /u/1 on first place in youtube it alter the order in my Gmail and /u/1 becames the main one.

How can I set it up correctly in Firefox? it is not a Gmail/Youtube problem, but a Firefox problem, since I can do it as I want in other browsers.

Thanks.

Hello,

after an internet session I'm using the "Clear Recent History" (STRG+SHIFT+Delete) function. Sometimes this window doesn't close automatically, when I'm click the OK-Button.

Is this a BUG?

MacOS Catalina 10.15.7 Firefox 88.0.1 (64-bit)

All recent Firefox versions have killer bugs.

A new one was actually trying to login here. The error message said 'Cookies must be enabled' and I couldn't get further. Cookies *were* enabled! I shut down Firefox, and re-opened, and all was then OK.

. Web pages with scripts are often completely blank. . Pop-ups are often blank. If not they often don't work, like (critically) Ebay login. . View source (CMD U) works for new pages. However doesn't update if the source page changes.

 I do use <CMD U> from the changed front page.

A silly one is that the keypress to 'Copy Link' was deviously 'A', but not shown. It has now changed to 'L' and still not shown. Why? I very much prefer Firefox, and all the many shortcuts are memorised (well bar 'L' (8-)# )

However I so often now have to use Safari or Chrome to get around the bugs. This is a pain as the interfaces are different, and specifically 'View Source' never has a shortcut key. They also have their own bugs!

I need to view a cached webpage as it was on a particular date without Firefox automatically refreshing the page once I retrieve it from History. Example: I attempted to login to an employer's website and received an error message that I would need to reapply. I went back to said website yesterday and was able to login to my employee profile. How can I pull up the page from my History showing the error message where I wasn't able to login and the error message was displayed?

Dear all,

I recently have a problem with the Bitwarden Addon (1.49.1) and Firefox (88.0) on Windows 10 with my Surface Pro 7.

When I activate the the addon the window pops up and when I then tap on something in the window, for example, the settings or the field for password entry, then the extension closes.

This happens only in touch mode, when I tap on the windows. When I use a mouse or a pen it doesn't close.

There are some workarounds like open the addon in new windows or opening the virtual keyboard from the tray. But it has worked very well for a long time. Also in other chromium based browser it works still.

I contacted the Bitwarden Support and they could reproduce the problem, but are not able to fix it, because it has something to do with the particular environment for the add-ons in Firefox.

Is there something in the settings, which coud fix the problem or is it possible that it will be fixed in another update?

Best regards,

Sascha

Firefox caused a Blue Screen on my windows 7 PC today. I was able to restart my PC but when I try to open Firefox I get an error message to stay that the "application had a problem and crashed. Unfortunately the crash reporter is unable to submit a report for this crash." I have restarted my PC twice but still cannot get Firefox to open. I have Firefox 88 - but unsure if there has been a recent update to this. Firefox is set to automatically update. I am now using Chrome to do this. Can anyone tell me what may have caused this? Do I need to uninstall Firefox and Reinstall it? What is the correct way to reinstall it under my same account? I would appreciate some help. Thanks.

After migrating from Firefox 87 to 88.0.1 under linux-64 (debian 10), the browser became very slow. Typing has a delay of 2-3 seconds between end of type and appearence on screen. Same for loading pages. Migrating back to firefox 87 is a nuisance since part of the setup is lost and mozilla keeps insisting daily to switch to firefox 88. The articles in "Fix slowness" do not seem to help.

Any suggestion?

There used to be header and footer settings in the older page setup option for date/time, page of page, etc.

Now you have to change where you want this in the about:config. Would be nice if this option was in the print settings dialogue.

This is more of a request than an issue. As I was able to change how I wanted the pages to print using the about:config method and setting up the header and footer there.

OK, sorry if I dont know all the technical jargon but here are a couple issues I have been having. Currently using FF88.0 on Windows 10 Home edition.

A few updates ago I noticed when I go to print a page from the internet (specifically eBay Order Details) it no longer prints the default auction picture as it appears on the screen but enlarges it up to the original download size. This make the shrink to fit option no longer work properly. So in order to get all of the information I need on one page of print I have to constantly change the size from 40-60% to make it work. Frustrating and time wasting.

Second issue: This one just started with the last update. I use a Rollo label printer and I had everything set up where it worked just fine. After the last update it prints half labels and I cant get it to adjust back properly. Huge issue and time waster.

On average I feel like this slows me down 15-30 minutes a day total.

Firefox extends onto 2nd display when window is maximized.

Firefox Browser 89.0b6 (64-bit) Developer Edition Windows 10 Pro 20H2 Build 19042.804 Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.551.0

I currently have two displays connected, the 2nd display is positioned above my primary display, the two displays are arranged as such in the Display settings.

With Firefox open on my primary display; if the window is Maximized, it extends several pixels beyond the top of the screen and onto the second display above.

If I go into Display settings and rearrange the displays so that Windows behaves as though the 2nd display was actually to the right of the primary display, maximized Firefox windows to do not extend onto the 2nd display.

From what I have observed (a handful of various browsers, notepad++, office applications, adobe reader, explorer, cmd, and other miscellaneous software), this seems to be specific to Firefox.

It appears to be that Firefox is drawing itself slightly beyond the top of the desktop when maximized.

It is enough to cover approximately the lower two thirds of the information in the 'status bar' area of the windows on the 2nd display.

Is this a known issue? Is there some a way to fix this? Is this somehow not an issue with Firefox despite it only happening with Firefox?

Any help is appreciated.
