When my computer sleeps, the position of the open Firefox window always shifts to the bottom left of my monitor screen. Why does it not remain where I position it? I constantly need to drag it back up to the top of my monitor. I have searched for help but cannot find anything applicable. I am using MacOS BigSur v11.6.4 on a Mac mini (M1, 2020). I keep Firefox up to date.

Thanks, Margie

All the many links online to info on how to fix it is the same and none of it works. So it must all be part of the scam. Fucking horseshit. Can I say that?

Can someone tell me how to get rid of it in an actual human non fake way?

I get redirected to yahoo so I thought I could just check the add-ons to look for malware. No add-on showed up in Firefox. I guess I have to find the file somewhere in my Finder but I found nothing in LaunchDaemons, Application Help or any other folders where it might be located. Some people on the internet said that you should look in prefs in Firefox but there is not anything suspicious. How can I delete the redirect virus?

On a trusted website, for a class which I paid a lot of money to attend, I get this error message, on FireFox only: The media could not be loaded, format is not supported.

I used to LOVE Firefox,but I'm getting frigg'n irritated by it right now. Chrome and Safari both open this page. I had this same problem a few days ago, was sent a long list of possible ways to deal with it that were all over my head complicated. I chose the simplest one- to clear caches, and it worked! yay, for a couple of days, now the error is back. I there must be a different solution , or cause, than the cache one - What needs to be turned on or off, so this doesn't happen? Too complicated, too frustrating.

I'd love it if someone could give me some more ideas on this. Macbook Pro 16" 2021, IOS Monterey 12.1

Thank you!

Can't restore previous session tabs after Firefox crash using Firefox 95 on Mac

I have consulted https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-restore-my-tabs-last-time. That article says:

-Click on the menu button [three lines at the upper right] to open the menu panel. -Click History. -Click Recently Closed Tabs.

I am using Firefox 95.0.2 for Mac (iOS 10.15.7). There is no "Recently Closed Tabs" option to click after clicking on History per the above instruction. I have saved various files from the time of the crash, in particular "previous.jsonlz4" (a 20.6 MB file, as I had a very large number of tabs open). Is there any way to use this or some other file to restore my old tabs?

I have Firefox on an old MacBook which hasn't had its macOS updated for a couple of years, and a new Mac running up-to-date Monterey. In both, Firefox has just developed the same problems at the same time: pages won't load, and the program won't shut down normally -- I have to use force quit. Safari works fine and I've tried all the usual solutions, bar deleting and reloading the app. I don't want to do that yet since the problem is the same on two different computers and an old and a new macOS. Since Firefox has recently updated, has that caused the problem?
