Almost every time I open FF I have to sign in and sync, and start my browsing from scratch. My previous session does not open: I have tried several times to set my preferences to restore previous session. Sometimes the session is there but after opening and closing the browser a few times the session is lost.

How to disable: "Your internet connection was restored" notifications? – Terribly annoying and only started in the last version 77.0.1 very recently. I rather switch to another browser if I cannot get rid of this. Checked my 3 plug-ins, but cannot find anything there, nor if it is something on Facebook I cannot find it. Any idea?

I know how to bookmark a page- what I want to know is how to restore the bookmark star in the address bar (I accidentally removed it). I KNOW that you can bookmark a page by clicking the 3 dots at the end of the address bar and using the drop down menu, etc, or key commands.

BUT- I want to RESTORE the star that easily and quickly allowed you to bookmark a page. All other answers to this same question seem to only tell people alternate ways to bookmark a page. I don't need that. I need to know how to restore bookmark star to address bar. Thanks!

I have three devices linked to my Sync account and just two of them seems to be merging information (passwords, bookmarks, ...) on the server.

My devices are:

1- iMac MacOS Mavericks with latest version of Firefox

2- Samsung Galaxy S3 with Latest version of Firefox for android KitKat 4.4.2

3- Desktop PC Windwos 7 with latest version of Firefox

Devices 1 and 2 are merging information to the server but device 3 (the Windows setup) is not merging any information with the other devices.

I have no idea about why not all the devices are syncing correctly but I will like to be able to sync all my devices.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

I ran 2 different versions of Linux Firefox from a Linux CD and Firefox version were not able to play HTML5 from Youtube. Youtubes test shows HTML5 not available. The version of Firefox was 61.x

Why would it not play as I expect HTML5 in to Firefox? Linux support seems to think a update is required but that should only occur if Firefox itself is dependent on the operating system.

You'll find lots to explore on Home page. |NSEZ-403 " It's only when I try and sign in. I've cleared the cache & cookies, and restarted Firefox multiple times, but still get this message. I also tried Chrome and had same problem, but don't get it with Safari.

On a Mac, tried to come back to firefox after many years but is there no way now to import my passwords from Chrome to Firefox?

On the support pages there are supposed to be: 1) an Import button on Password Manager - not there for Mac 2) Import password check box for when you import data - no there for Mac (only importing bookmarks etc)

Can I not use the csv file from Chrome in any way?

This seems to be a pretty significant way to deter anyone wanting to try a new switch, not on Windows.

What is Firefox doing when it tries to connect to these addresses - detectportal.firefox.com, shavar.services.mozilla.com, secure.fanboy.co.nz ?

Firefox randomly and repeatedly calls out to addresses that have nothing to do with my browsing, and I'm trying to find out which I can block. I've identified a few that seem to be related to the *constant* checking for updates, but some I'm not sure about:

detectportal.firefox.com shavar.services.mozilla.com secure.fanboy.co.nz

BTW, why is it so difficult to disable automatic update checks? I found an article about JSON files, but shouldn't it just be a setting in preference? The constant update checks are interfering with my browsing, which should get priority, I think.

Even though I have deselected "Show search suggestions in address bar results" in my preferences, I can't get rid of it.

When I start typing in the address bar it has the whole drop down box with a bunch of search engines I don't want or use - YouTube, Facebook, Wikipedia, Reddit and Twitter.

It wasn't there before, and it's really annoying.

I've searched all over the web - to no avail :( All I want to do is to save my browsing history EASILY. That used to be possible in Firefox very easily by using the export button or by using a tool like Norton's. Sadly no longer it seems... no more Norton or exporting is only possible for bookmarks :( :( I know where the data is - mostly in places.sqlite - and have used a SQL browser but I don't want to have to learn how to manage data bases, I just want a simple list of all the sites I've visited with date... Everyone is so concerned about deleting their browser history, but is really no one interested in keeping a record?? I've used Nirsoft's great History Viewer sadly only available for Windows - but I use my Mac far more than my PC and syncing doesn't always work in moving all my browser history from my Mac to my PC. If there really is nothing there, I'd appreciate very much help from someone with SQL experience - what do I have to do using a DB Browser for SQLite in order to generate the list I'd like. Thanks to everyone who can help in advance!

I am using a video conferencing site called "whereby.com". It works as expected for everything but screen sharing.

When attempting to share my screen, Firefox asks me if I'd like to allow "whereby.com" to see my screen (see attached screenshot). When clicking "Allow", I see the message in the second attached screenshot.

Firefox version - 73.0.1 Mac OS version - 10.15.3

The same error message appears regardless which of the options I select in the window where Firefox asks which window or screen to share.

Whereby doesn't have any info on this, and no search I've run has turned up anything that might give more info on the cause of, or possible solution to, the error saying screensharing could not start. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Let me know if there's anything more I need to share to help troubleshoot this.

Thanks, Dan
