Folks frequently bemoan that Firefox doesn't have the same Ctrl+Shift+T keyboard shortcut to Restore Previous Sessions that Chromium has (heck, I'm one of them), but I noticed that Ctrl+Shift+N will restore Previously Closed Windows. From a backend perspective, is there a functional difference between these two options? Does using the Restore Previous Sessions button in the History panel behave differently in regards to, I don't know, cookies or something? I'm a little hazy on what a "session" is and why it's important.

Hello,

I've had an ongoing problem that I've been ignoring, but today it was hard to ignore. I hope someone can help me.

Some webpages load with code where the buttons should be. I've included a screen shot.

I'm running FF 78.11 on a 2011 MacBook Pro with OSX 10.12.

Steps I've taken to try and fix the problem: - emptied the cache - turned off all privacy extensions independent of one another: ADP, Privacy Badger, Ghostery, Enhanced Tracking Protection and AdGuard - restarted with adons disabled

These steps didn't work.

The pages load with no problems on Chrome and Ghostery Dawn.

What is the problem here, and what can I do to fix it?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Firefox already has features for blocking autoplay. I use all of those.

But, some websites still manage to autoplay! Is there a way to stop those devious websites? Examples include Yahoo Finance and ESPN.

I already have Autoplay set to "Block Audio and Video" in the Permissions section of Settings. I have also gone into about:config and set the following:

media.autoplay.allow-extension-background-pages false media.autoplay.block-event.enabled true media.autoplay.block-webaudio true media.autoplay.default 5

Is there anything else I can do?

Also, does anyone know *why* firefox is allowing these videos to play?

Hi. I've noticed similar messages like this after previous Firefox upgrades, but not for the latest.

My Firefox ESR was automatically updated to 78.11 on June 1, 2021. Since then I have not been able to access Amazon Prime. The error says:

Your web browser is missing a digital rights component.

In your web browser’s address bar, type about:addons, press Enter, and then on the left, click Plugins. For the Widevine Content Decryption Module, select Always Activate, and then refresh the video’s page and try watching the video. If the video doesn’t play, go back to Plugins, click the gear icon at the top of the page, and then click Check for Updates. When the plugins have updated, refresh the video’s page, and then try watching the video.

The suggestions get me no where. It is already on "Always Activate" and newer updates are available.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling a early version, but this does not work either. I get a message at the top saying that "Firefox is installing components needed to plate the audio or video on this page. Please try again later." "Later" is apparently never.

Has any else had this issue? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I've been using Firefox with Virgin Media's TV Go https://virgintvgo.virginmedia.com/en.html for quite a while without a problem. After the latest update I got the message to update the browser to the latest version and restart. I've tried talking to Virgin about it but been given the runaround by them - surprise. I've tried other browsers, Safari, Chrome, but the quality of the stream is poor compared to what I was getting with Firefox. Has anyone got any ideas? Any hopes?

Thanks

I just want to say that this is ridiculous. Importing bookmarks from HTML (which was exported from the same Firefox browser but on a different system) does not work at all. I also tested this with HTML exported bookmarks from other browsers as well. I select the file, click import and nothing happens, nothing at all. I have even updated to the latest version of Firefox and guess what? It still does not work. How? Please explain how your software can be this bad. And please don't ask me if I clicked the right button, giving me instructions on how to do the thing that I already did 100 times.

Hello community, would anyone kindly help me with this issue I'm facing? How do I export Logins and Passwords on Firefox running 78.10.1esr (64-bit) on a Mac. The export funtion is not available here and I know the this option is only available on 79 and after, but I'm using a mid 2012 Mac Pro running 78.10.1esr. Is there any way I could still export the logins?

Hi everyone!

Do some of y'all know why this keep happening?

For example: I'm logged in on two sites and now I close Firefox. I've turned on the settings ""Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed"" and I've put the URLs, for these two websites, in the ""Manage exception"" list and turned them on ""Allow"". I've also turned on "Clear history when Firefox closes" and turned everything on inside that setting except ""Active Logins"".

I'm suspecting its because its deleting the cache because I don't use any kind of "erase all traces" add-ons. I'd rather not have cache turned off since it quickly builds up.

The only add-ons I use are: NoScript ""Ublock Origin"" ""KeePassXC"" (not even related to any kind of blocking so I don't really have to mention it, but anyway. ""HTTPS Everywhere"" ""Firefox Relay"" Thanks Firefox for this incredible add-on! ""Decentraleyes"" and ""DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials""

Hi forum The email provider for my preferred secondary email address uses greylisting. It works, very well. The confirming email from firefox is sent from a random amazon address, which gets greylisted as intended. There's a 5 minute limit for entering the confirmation code, but greylisting slows delivery of the email to around 15 minutes, waiting for the amazon sending server to try multiple times. Is there another way to update the secondary email address ?

I downloaded Scribus, an open source free page layout design application from https://www.scribus.net/

link text

I can't open this application because I get a message that says: "'Scribus.app' can’t be opened because it is from an unidentified developer. Your security preferences allow installation of only apps from the Mac App Store and identified developers.

I searched the Mac App Store and it does not have Scribus. I can't afford to subscribe to Adobe Creative Cloud and I need to be able to create page layout designs, which Scribus can do.

How can I verify that https://www.scribus.net/ is a secure application site? How can I open the application if it is a secure link?
