I have been trying to find a solution for this problem for several months with zero results.

I use duckduckgo search. No matter what I search for, or how I word it I get "results" from 3 - 5 websites (2 of which are usually amazon & youtube - even though I'm not shopping or looking for a video). None of the non-results are remotely relevant, but they are the only results I get... Duplicated... Until I hit the "no more results" brick wall. And speaking of youtube... When I am looking for a video (audiobooks usually) my "results" consist of 3 or 4 channels (always the same 3 or 4). I get several videos from each of the channels & duplicates of those same videos then I slam up against the "no more results" brick wall.

I've cleared caches & cookies & stored data. I've deleted search history, cleared search history, paused search history, etc... Those things produce no changes whatsoever. I searched (at a friend's house on her computer) for information. The results might or might not have been relevant. It involves inserting great huge heaps of java-script into my machine. In spite of being computer illiterate, I'm not stupid. So, no I didn't copy or paste any script or download anything.

Everything I know about computers I had to figure out for myself. The most important discovery I made is that the way computers function is perfectly logical - frequently unreasonable, but always logical. That's why although I am computer-illiterate, I'm not computer-dysfunctional. I've been able to make laptops, tablets & android phones do things the experts & professionals said were impossible. But if people try to explain stuff to me by speaking computer code, all I hear is whah, whah, whah (like in the way grownups talk in the Charlie Brown cartoons).

I sincerely appreciate any information or suggestions anyone can offer. Just give it to me in plain english. I'm an intelligent adult who grew up in a socially-insignificant school district.

Thanks in advance to all!

Restore Session Opens Tabs From The Beginning of the Last Session, Not the End of the Last Session

Hello,

I have Firefox set to reopen my tabs from the last session when it starts up.

However, I delete, open, and reuse/write over the address of many tabs, as anyone might, during a session.

When Firefox reopens my last session, it starts all over again as if no changes had occurred in the tabs during the last session, even though the browser has been open for hours or even days and, as I said, many tab changes have occurred.

This being frozen in time with the same startup tabs is time consuming and causes other problems, as all progress with work and things I'm researching is repeatedly lost an I must start over.

How can I get Firefox to open the tabs from the END of the last session and not the beginning?

(Note: Firefox used to open the tabs from the end of the last session with no problem, but at some point switched to opening tabs only from the beginning of the last session).

Yesterday morning I opened my RBS online banking, without any problem. Late yesterday evening I tried repeatedly to open my RBS online banking without success. I would go through the usual log in process and end up with a blank screen. I tried a Firefox refresh which made no difference.
