I have four active Firefox windows, each with quite a few tabs. I have been closing and re-opening Firefox with no issue until today. Earlier this week I updated my Mac OS to Ventura 13.5, and Firefox was still operating normally after the installation (closing and re-opening with all windows and tabs intact).

Today however, when I restarted Firefox, no windows opened automatically. I closed and restarted a few times, and finally one window opened intact; however the other three windows (still dispalyed on the "Windows" menu) refuse to open. When I look at my Firefox app on my iPhone, it also shows all the tabs intact.

What can I do to get these to open? I am running Firefox version 115.0.3.

My windows install in my dualboot pc is unable to open at the moment, I can access the windows files from my linux. But i need the firefox data on that pc that I kept. I don't remember which email I used on that account so I'm kind of stuck on getting my data from online. Is there a way to recieve all the data from another drive without opening firefox?

How to turn off autofill when it's not password related?

Every time I log on a site where I have previously searched something in their search bar, whatever I searched either gets auto-filled (even if I want to search something else) or appears in the bottom of the search bar. They disappear if I clear all my search history but then I have to re-log into every site on my browser.

How can I delete those suggestions/make them not appear anymore without loging out? I have tried checking the autofill settings but everything is password related.

Searchbar no longer working

Hi.

Whenever I click a button on the keyboard, the CTRL+F function comes up on it's own. I had previously disabled it because it ruins all shortcuts on youtube and with tourettes, I often also get thrown around if I am reading long articles, because of misclicks.

Unfortunately I did the big mistake of updating, also with a tourettes-missclick, so my question is: 1) How do I remove the 'quick'-search function? I want the Ctrl+F bar to come up ONLY WHEN I CLICK ctrl+F, and I want it to go away again if I click ctrl+F again. I forget how to do it. 2) How do I remove all future update prompts? Given that it has been made so hard to configure firefox into something tolerable, I don't want to throw all my setup away with minor updates always thrown at me. It takes me a long time every time there's an update, I have to fix language and other stuff back again. It's just not worth it in time for me to use Firefox, if I have to make a setup so often. 3) Recommendations for the best version of Firefox to go back to and stay in for eternity, alternatively, browsers that does not change or add functions without first asking the user... (The answer is no, by the way, I don't want more new fancy functions)

Sorry for this nagging but I simply can't use my browser like this. It's just not working.

One particular website no longer works with Firefox. https://www.familysearch.org/mapp/ I had no problems with this website until a couple of weeks ago. I can use the website with no problem on other browsers. I have tried a clean re-install of Firefox and clearing cache, but still the website does not work. Any suggestions? Thanks John

Dear Mozilla

I wrote to you earlier today about a problem i am having with themes.I change themes quite frequently and have a lot of them on my list. After opening and closing the browser once or twice the list of themes no longer shows what each theme looks like. I reset Firefox and the image of each theme reappears. It's quite tedious as i said to have to do this once or twice a day. Is this problem occurring because i have too many themes on the list?. I have turned off all other extensions and the same problem keeps happening. I don't know what to do.
