I am having the identical problem as this person was.

https://support.mozilla.org/hsb/questions/1370443

I'm using Windows 11, Firefox 106.0.3. I have already selected "always ask." I do not see any way I can change the thing that says "Downloads." I see that there is a suggested fix, and I also see that an apparently knowledgeable person has advised against using that fix.

This is very basic browser functionality, and being unable to save to particular folders adversely affects my productivity. Is this issue being dealt with? What problems can I expect to occur in the future if I make the suggested fix?

Thanks in advance.

I was directed here from Mozilla Connect. Since the update a few days ago, my Firefox browser keeps freezing permanently. It seems to happen mostly when I interact with Google Search (sometimes just loading Google will cause it) but it does happen occasionally on other sites. When it freezes this way, the only fix is to End Task and reload. It will successfully reload to the state it was in just a few seconds before freezing. I'm on Windows 10. I keep everything (OS, browsers, etc.) up to date, so I doubt that would be a factor. I wonder if there could there be an issue with a Google-based script (hence it occurring on other sites)? I don't know how I'd test for that.

I had several windows open in Firefox. These have disappeared but I'm not sure exactly when it happened.

'Restore the previous session' does not help as it only restores a single window. I need to go back in history (I have backups so can refer to older files if needed). I have checked 'session-store.backups' and have several .jsonlz4 files, ranging from early October to late October. The older versions are much larger.

Do these files contain my older session data? If yes, how do I load them to get the relevant session windows? I am not worried about losing any data since that time.

Thanks

Recently the V-like icon/button appeared at the right-hand end of the top line of my Firefox windows. This Tab Search could be invaluable to some, but I have no need for it. If I start to get too many tabs I just use another window. However, I click on it constantly when I intend to minimize the window. I have been clicking on the - icon/button in EVERY WINDOWS APPLICATION since Windows began, and as it has ALWAYS been the LEFT-MOST item in the UPPER RIGHT CORNER I haven't had to think about it in decades. But now it isn't the left-most, that is now tab search.

Please, please, PLEASE provide a configuration option to remove Tab Search from the top line.

Thanks!

Backup & restore information in Firefox profiles

Hi there!

I'm attempting to migrate my Firefox (106.0.3) profile from the Linux Mint V20.3 on one SSD to a new installation of Linux Mint V21 on a separate SSD. I'm using the information supplied on this page:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles

Step 4, under Backing up your profile says: Right-click on your profile folder (e.g. xxxxxxxx.default), and select Copy.

This folder, qspfoqtl.default, contains 1 file, named times.json, the contents of which are:

{ "created": 1618792039414, "firstUse": null }

Clearly, not my Firefox profile.

There is, however, a folder named nnob5aww.default-release that contains a bunch of directories and files (505.4MB) with names like bookmarkbackups, browser-extension-data... storage, weave.

Is this documentation incorrect as of this release of Firefox? And, should I be using the nnob5aww.default-release folder as the profile? I'm a little confused. (Most often, I'm a lot confused.) Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

- Ralph

Hi, when I log into my bank I give my account number and then a password. I have told firefox not to remember my password but it is remembering the bank account number which automatically pops up when I am on the banks log in page. How do I stop this? Also when I signed up for this firefox help it asked for an email address and all my email addresses poped up for me to chose from. I didn't like this either. Appreciate any help. If these features can't be turned off whats the last version I can use that won't do this? cheers Neil

font corruption? the font called Calibri is showing up as italic in all websites that use calibri. but i dont have calibri installed on my computer. how do i fix this? in the past, my friend had a similar issue with fonts looking all weird in code on websites and i told her it was font corruption and had to remove a font on the system level which rectified the issue. but in my case, i dont have calibri installed on my computer. so when i go to the outlook website, all the emails are coming in as calibri italic out of nowhere, when i didnt change any font settings. if i go into google docs, and paste some notes and change all the notes to the font called calibri, it shows it as italic. but i dont have italic selected in google docs. how do i fix this in firefox???

Dear All,

I am developer. I created the sign up form, when I am using Mozilla. I faced this error:


message: "Request aborted", name: "AxiosError", code: "ECONNABORTED", config: {…}, request: XMLHttpRequest }.

I checked it with Chrome and it works very well. It seems Mozilla has issue.

I can stored my data into database using Chrome. Therefore, I suggested you for developing purposes, never use Mozilla. Unless, you have solution.

Best,

Hello, I recently had to reinstall windows due to a virus. However, I'm unsure how to open or sync my old profile into Firefox. I can see the old tabs on my PC before I reinstalled windows, but I can't see my bookmarks or re-open that session. I tried to use the launch profile in new browser, but it just gives my new profile from this new installation.

I lost my tabs from the previous section again. I've read many solutions but still can't figure it out. It's not as simple as restore since not there and not even greyed out. I've gone into the file and tried to tweak it. I really like to know a simple way to find out especially where it says my information may be synced with other devices and I'm not sure how to even check that because when I went to look it wasn't clear to me either. I'd like to know how to restore my previous session and if I can't I would like to at least know that I'm synced to other devices and how to find the information there and how to restore it again when it happens the next time since it's happened to me so many times over the years

I really like the new Firefox View, but I'd love to be able to get to the view with a keyboard command. I tried treating like the first tab (Cmd+1), but that doesn't work, nor does Cmd+0. Hovering over it doesn't reveal a keyboard shortcut. It doesn't appear on any of the menus, so I'm at a loss as to how to assign a custom control.

Thanks so much!
