Hi. I would like to restore my previous session when I open Firefox (last version of the browser installed). The option is turned on, but nothing happens when I close the browser and I open it again. The support says I should see "Restore previous session" after "New Private Window", but this option is not there. In the history, the list of recently closed tabs is always empty, there are juste one or two links in the recently closed windows (it seems to be a random list). Can someone help me ? I don't understand why it doesn't work. Thank you :)

I'm using MacOS Catalina 10.15.7 on an iMac with Firefox 86.0 and have trouble connecting to some sites unless I'm in Privacy Mode. I use Google or DuckDuckGo (preferred) as my search engine. When I do connect I have problems if I try to play a video. Example: I can connect to Cnet.com but I can't play any vids unless I reconnect in Privacy Mode. What can I adjust in Firefox to connect an play vids without using Privacy? Thanks, any help if greatly appreciated.

Okay. I've got an issue with the spellchecker that seems to be a bug. I installed the dictionary, and made sure it was on. However it won't detect even things like gfhjrjdjd as being misspelled. It's really annoying. It doesn't seem to be able to detect text boxes - even this one. There is no option to enable it with right click.

Hello guys crtl + enter will open all websites starting by https! afaik many many many websites don't have installed SSL. So novice users should see "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead" for them all? I do believe Potential Risk is Firefox and its dumb developers who made this stupid change itself! Anyway to fix this? or move away to Chrome? Thanks.

I have an urgent problem. I am about to loose access to my existing primary and secondary emails, as i have been forced to try to change to a new email provider. I set up with Gmail and it was working fine until I updated windows on the 20th. Now I cannot log in I get the following error massage:

Corrupted Content Error The site at https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?pli=1 has experienced a network protocol violation that cannot be repaired. The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because an error in the data transmission was detected. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

I have searched online and deleted my google cookies and cleared my cache without effect. I am getting desperate to get this fixed. My new ISP does not provide email addresses but I need two of them one for myself and one for my mother. I have been told that my existing emails my be deleted as early as 30th March 2021. I have been trying to get these new emails in place for nearly three months and I feel like this is the last straw.

I know I am using an old version of Firefox, but I need to keep my old style extensions as I use them to help me with my visual disability.

Yours Desperately, Kaelkitty

hi, whoever reads this. I've noticed a problem recently in some websites where certain elements (e.g. logos and icons) completely disappear and get replaced by strings of text, which I'm assuming is the code that is used to create them. Usually, it's just one icon, typically a search or menu icon, but there have been more drastic cases, such as the screenshot of the Encyclopaedia Britannica website that I attached. Notice that many buttons, while still functional, are covered with strange text. One thing I'm suspecting is that I intentionally or inadvertently disabled an element (or something of that sort, sorry for my ignorance in the specificities) ages ago that was supposed to make these work, but I don't remember what I disabled, if I ever did. But other than that, I have no clue what causes this. In Tor, where I don't have an account and never interfered with the setup or settings, everything seems to work just fine; the buttons are right there. Hope someone can be of help.

Hello,

When I go full screen mode on firefox (version: 87.0 64 bit) and mac (version: Big Sur 11.2.3) both the top and bottom apple tool bars go away (which I want to happen) but the firefox search bar and bookmarks are still there on top.

When I go FS on my windows computer, the full web page displays and then when I hover op top the firefox search bar pops down until I hover off it, this is what I want to happen on my mac!

See attachment of firefox search bar staying while in FS mode and please help! Thank you for your time.

By mistake I have cleared the browsing history, cache and cookies. I would like to recover the old precedents for "browsing history" because it is now completely empty and stores the list of visited sites.
