Hello all. I seem to have a new version of Firefox installed on my computer, or an update has made it a newer version (89) and now it does not save my passwords. When I close down the laptop and re start it the next time I want to use it and go to firefox, none of the paswords I had thought I'd saved previously are there. This is very frustrating as I have a lot of places I visit which I had, in previous times using an earlier version of firefox, saved passwords which populated the correct places. I am no techie so really don't understand what has happened. Every time I want to get onto even my email, I have to leaf through my black book to find the necessary password and do it all manually.

Please can anyone help?

I rely on the previous sessions being restored after (the more and more frequent) updates for my work, as I usually need to keep track of many tabs.

Is there a way to save and restore all the currently opened tabs across multiple browser instances? (WITHOUT sharing this outside my computer!)

If you're going to tell me it does this 'automatically' well, yes, it usually does, except for the times when it doesn't.

The new version, 89.0.1, has removed the contrast and separation of the tabs, making it hard to read now. Why?

I don't mean to be rude, but if you could get the decision-makers who authorize drastic changes to the appearance of the browser when a new release comes out to just stop "fixing" things that aren't broken, that would certainly satisfy me. I'm not picky about color schemes and "themes", but now the browser is difficult to read, and it wasn't before. I need to know how to restore the appearance of my browser to be the same as in the previous version, or I'll finally have to quit Firefox after all these years and switch to a different one. I don't want to have to do that, but I don't think I can manage to deal with this new hard-to-read low-contrast version. I'm sure someone thought this design looked "cool", and was therefore an improvement. I don't want to stifle anyone's creativity, but the browser I use has to be easier to read. Maybe the next release will offer a choice between the "look and feel" of the previous version versus this one. Thanks for considering my problem (and it is a problem for me), and I'll keep my fingers crossed.

FF auto-updated to 89.0.1, now a site won't work, would like to RESTORE deleted/cleared COOKIES (?!?!) for that site to see if it will help cuz deleted the cookie for it made things worse! Doesn't work under Private FF session either!!

Specifics: I am the Webmaster of (we use WIX to create/manage it) 12cdrc.org and it is working fine using Edge, Chrome, Brave, but no longer works correctly (since 89.0.1, I think happened late last night early this morning on my system) update. Most of the page loads, but the Calendar and display tweets sub-windows will not load! It will be obvious to all where they should be displaying but are not!

So, I tried removing 12cdrc.org cookies. Things got worse! Now the Login won't work either, where I was logged in as my user for the site prior to that.

I tried a Private window/session, and the Login function does work, the Calendar does show, but the tweets sub-section/window still does not display/function.

Background: This is not the first website to malfunction using Firefox... Previous version updates broke the rescuemichigan.com website (none of the pull-down menu functions work, but work fine on/with Brave, Chrome, Edge)! Also mewe.com acts up using FF at times, but a clear of the mewe.com related cookies and relogin at mewe via FF clears up the issues of things not wanting to display correctly or fully on mewe using FF - which is why I thought clearing 12cdrc.org cookies would help in this case (but did not, again, made the malfunctioning worse)!

This makes little sense. I even tried doing D/L of full 89.0.1 install, didn't help.

I'd like to try and RESTORE COOKIES (last thing I want to do is clear all data/cookies for FF) for 12cdrc.org from manual offload of all my userid appdata folder/sub-folders to an external drive (or perhaps appdata backup to Norton cloud backup done a few weeks ago)! But I do not know where to look. Was about to go to my external drive and do complete file search of "12cdrc*.*" to see what would return when I thought I could search Mozilla/FF Help on "Restore Cookies" but only very old question for very old version of FF showed up and it said "IF STILL NEED HELP ASK NEW QUESTION" so here I am doing so!!!

Again, all sites (12CDRC.org, MeWe.com, and RescueMichigan.com) ALL WORK 100% error/issues free using Brave, Chrome, Edge, so this is FIREFOX SPECIFIC and all these issues have started under/after recent FF updates and/or gotten worse, not fixed/better, under updates/upgrades!!!!

Appreciate any Help... 1) like I said, where the Cookies are hidden that I might then recover them from previous save 2) other suggestions?!?!?!

Within the last few weeks I have had some random BSOD occurrences while using Firefox. I used Nirsoft's BlueScreenView utility to inspect the minidump files. It showed the culprit was: nvlddmkm.sys - Nvidia windows kernel mode driver version 465.89.

The system is Windows 7 64-bit, graphics card is Nvidia GeForce GTX960 driver version 27.21.14.6589. I have used this system and Firefox for several years and never had a BSOD until lately. Disabling hardware acceleration seems to resolve the issue so far.

Are there any changes in Firefox 88 and 89 that could cause this? I have noticed other recent reports of the same problem.

Hi

I think Im speaking for most people when I say this......

PUT THE DAMN TABS !!!!!BELOW!!!! the address bar already!!

People have been begging you to do this for ******* years!!!

Stop being such a**holes and make it like this BY DEFAULT FOREVER! And add a simple option in the setting that always allows the user to put the tabs above or below....but I know most people want this always BELOW!!!

Fix this issue PLEASE it pisses soooo many people off having the tabs above the address bar. ...Also when I double click on the empty space beside the tabs it just shrink the open window.....change this so double clicking on the empty area OPENS A NEW TAB...

I know that the autofill for credit cards is only available in the US and Canada (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/credit-card-autofill#w_edit-your-saved-credit-cards). I live in the US. The feature was working just fine... until I traveled overseas and used my laptop there and changed time zones to where I was visiting. Now that I'm back in the US, the feature is missing. In the settings, I don't see a "Forms and Autofill" section in the settings. I checked system locale and it's properly set to us-en. All the settings are properly set in about:config. I've tried everything I found by searching online and nothing helped. I even tried creating a separate profile in Firefox to see if the section shows up under setting with no luck.

Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Since the problem occurs only on Firefox where the "Following" icon on my Pinterest home page is missing and not on other browsers, I'm wondering if the problem occurs because of some problem with my Mozilla Firefox. This has been going on for over a week. Would clearing my cookie cache help? Is there a danger than I would lose passwords to sites if I did so?

Hi Everyone,

I have seen another posts like this but the solution of them are not working for me.

The thing is that I'm not able to enter any Google features: Gmail, Drive, Keep, Maps, etc. on my Mozilla Firefox 89.0.2 (64-bit). Windows 10.

Let me explain the whole process:

All began when, out of nowhere, it started to give me TLS incompatibility errors. After a lot of working around (uninstalling, cleaning cache, history, cookies, troubleshooting/resetting), know I'm able to type my account and login to google, but when I click any icon (gmail, drive, keep, etc) the browser do nothing. It just stay there.

If I try to login on Yahoo email, I get this message: "To protect your security, www.google.com will not allow Firefox to display the page if another site has embedded it. To see this page, you need to open it in a new window." and when I hit "open in new window", the new windows opens in blank.

I'm able to use any Google products on a Private Windows (ctrl+shift+p). Also on M. Edge. iexplorer and Chrome.

What I have done:

  • Uninstall Mozilla Firefox
  • Deleting all remaining files and registries
  • install mozilla firefox fresh downloaded
  • Refreshing Firefox on troubleshoot mode
  • Restarting windows obviously, many times
  • Uninstall firefox completely and installing an older version (88). Did not worked.
  • Upgrading from 88 to 89.0.2
  • Verifying and disabling plugins (all versions)
  • Uninstalled Chrome, then Firefox, then reinstalling Firefox after a windows restart.
  • Uninstall Mozilla Firefox, restarting PC, reinstalled Firefox, all under Windows Safe Mode.
  • All of the above using a new windows administrator account.
  • All of the above using a domain administrator account.

I'm almost throwing the towel and using another browser and I don't want it. I have been using firefox since the beginning of times... home, office, everywhere.

Please help!

Regards,

Just now, Twitter started not loading properly. Sometimes it goes to a page where it just says, "Try Again" with the Twitter logo above the button. When it does load, images, gifs and videos are blank with a single colour filling in the media box.

I've updated to the latest Firefox version, restarted the browser, cleared cache and cookies, turned off all extensions and it's still happening. I've seen that this has been an issue for a long time that has been 'fixed' but is obviously still not. I only just came back to using Firefox after a long hiatus and I vaguely recall this being one of the reasons why I stopped using it years ago. That it's STILL an issue is just... sad.

When I try to reload, I also get the address: https://twitter.com/home?failedScript=polyfills

Does that mean anything?

Hi I run a program called nodered on a raspberry pi in docker. I use a browser to reach the user interface via lan. If that tab sits in the background too long (~5 min) the connection with the server resets and resets the gui.

I lose all current debugging information and any unsaved changes. Saving the page will stop the lost progress but not the current debugging. In other words just saving the page each time will only solve 1/2 of the problem.

Is there anyway to keep a background page active so it doesn't reset after a few minutes?

Hi,

I'm looking for a Firefox extension that works like FEBE used to.

I want to use one extension, and one extension only, to backup my Firefox history, extensions, bookmarks, tabs and profile.

I've searched for such an extension, but have come up blank. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

FEBE still seems available for download, but was last updated in 2017 (FEBE http://softwarebychuck.com/febe/febe.html). Does anyone know how well, if at all, FEBE works with Windows 10 and the current version of Mozilla Firefox?

If there is no extension that backups up bookmarks, tabs, extensions and profile in one go, I'd be grateful for any suggestions for extensions that backup bookmarks, history, extensions and profiles individually. I'm already using Tab Backup and Restore extension for tabs.

The reason I'm anxious is that my Firefox recently crashed and I lost all my laboriously created settings. I was lucky to get them back through one of the backup software programs I use.

My thanks for your advice and help in advance.
