I have several tabs that I have open on a regular basis that I use. I also have the option to clear browsing history when exiting Firefox checked. If Firefox crashes or I kill it with TaskManager, it will restore the tabs (and keeps history) but if I exit properly, it will not reopen the tabs even though I have the option 'Show your windows and tabs from last time' checked. There is not an option to open more than one home page. What if anything can I do?

Firefox 41.0.1, Windows 8.1. Since updating to version 38(?) "show all history" only shows the current session. I have since uodated to 41 with no improvement, Bookmarks have remained stable. I have tried:- Deleting Places.sqlite Re-installing Safe mode (no addons) Disablimg AVG and Defender Disablimg Wisecare and ASC

Changing Privacy options: Toggle Remember History/Use custom setting Toggle Private mode on/off Clear History toggled on/off

With Profile Manager created a new profile.

Checked the Owner and access control of all the files and folders in the profile, all full access and no read=only.

Installed "Places Maintenance" add-on and run it.

Can anyone suggest any other items to try, or is this a bug of FF running under Win 8,1?

Hello,

I've been using my own Sync 1.5 server since January without having any issue until this week.

I am unable to sync my clients, getting the "Sync encountered an error while synching: Unknown error, Sync will try again automatically."

Here's the log: https://pastebin.mozilla.org/8836193

The problem seems to happen at line 101 (on pastebin).

Here's some more info about my setup.

Syncserver 1.5.2 installed on a local server running on Linux.

I have 1 Windows client, 2 Linux clients. None of them can sync. All uses Firefox 38.0.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Phil

Today,I just updated to Firefox 43 and I have been online and all, but now, Some of that I visit or browse online is not showing up in my history (It shows some of them but not for searching stuff. For example this support websit does not show in history). I already checked on privacy and history is on Remember History but nothing have been solved. Each and everything that I visited online has shown up in my history before.How can I solve this problem? I look forward to hearing you soon.

I had no problem playing Netflix videos before FF 66. I'm now on FF 66.0.1. I disabled all add-ons, restarted FF to no avail. This issue MIGHT be DRM related since preview vids play correctly in Netflix. They aren't DRM controlled. The full videos, which are DRM controlled, do not play. 'Play DRM-Controlled Content' is checked in my FF settings. I can play full videos as expected in Chrome. I prefer not to for obvious reasons. The NF error code is F7701-1003. The msg is 'There appears to be a problem with Firefox which is preventing Netflix from starting playback'. I've gone through the steps that NF suggest for this issue. Doing that doesn't resolve the issue.

I have had this problem for a few months now and eventually just stopped using Firefox. I had tried the various suggested fixes to no avail. - rebooted - tried running in safe mode with no antivirus programs - renamed the places.sqlite file - I deleted Firefox, downloaded and installed it again with no success. I am concerned that not everything was removed on the Windows 10 uninstall process. - Have checked my Antivirus (Bit defender) logs and don't see any Firefox files locked/etc by Bitdefender

I would appreciate any suggestions that you might have. Regards Bill

При закрытии последней вкладки всегда открывается вкладка "Новая вкладка"(см. скриншот). Её нельзя закрыть, пока не закроешь само окно приложения. Аналогично, нельзя закрыть при помощи панели задач Windows. Эта вкладка сохраняет в себе закладки других сайтов. Но есть существенный недостаток: закладки нельзя настоить вручную, они возникают случайным образом. Из-за этой владки сложно закрыть Firefox.

Since I've updated to 61, I can't get the history to be active. (Bookmarks are fine). I made sure the settings were correct, I ran Refresh firefox; I ran Verify integrity and got this:

Task: checkIntegrity

- Unable to check database integrity > Task: invalidateCaches - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: checkCoherence - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: expire - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: vacuum - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: stats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: _refreshUI - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task.

I've looked up numerous help sites, and they all refer to a place.sqlite file that I don't seem to have, and a profile folder that also does not exits (I'm assuming this is a 61 thing, in my older versions I had those files and folders.

Help! I need my history!

Thanks.

I've double-checked that no other program is deleting the history, and there are no scheduled tasks running that would do it. I have Firefox set to KEEP history. I DID have a crash at one point - could that have corrupted a user file?? How do I create that corrupted file to check if that is it?

Thank you!
