I am one among many who keep a lot of windows open for reference. When my compootie shuts down inadvertantly I am avle to use "Restore Session" to get these back. But occasionally the system shuts down and I am unable to restore anything, and this can cost me tens of hours os referencing, and untold hours of productivity.

Could you save the open windows in an easily accessible file that we could use to restore previous sessions? This would save a lot of us considerable grief.

Greetings. so I have been using this type of browser since netscape vs ie. enjoy and use firefox daily, when i can. there seems to be a weird process of constantly changing the software, and not allowing reliability. I can set for no updates, or only if i allow it, but firefox ignores me and updates anyway and then displays a new front page describing the mischief the coders have been up to. couple weeks ago, you broke it. dead. like a brick. switched to brave, there were a couple updates, you undid whatever you broke, fine. then a day or two ago, broke it again. not really a fun game. once i am able to move bookmarks over to brave, why do firefox? it takes forever to start, presumably while it sends all my browsing history and downloads to be examined for commercial potential. I can give fire fox a 2 or 3 minute headstart, hit brave, in 10 seconds i can use it, firefox still busy with industrial spying, or something. eating a sandwich? who knows. if there is any way to tell the coders to create a do not change, leave my damn browser alone because it works button, that would be nice. otherwise, its just a weird game for someone i guess, but i dont have time to play.....

I have been signing in to a certain secure website for years on Firefox. In the last 24 hours, it won't let me sign in and all I see is:

"Bad Request

Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand. Size of a request header field exceeds server limit."

I have tried 20 times. There is nothing wrong on the website; my wife can access the same on her Mac computer.

Any advice? Thank you

No way to ASK a question in the Monitor section, there is no GET HELP button.

Application error: a client-side exception has occurred (see the browser console for more information).

In general, getting to the "ask a question" button in the support website is like finding hens teeth.

Didn't there used to be a Discussions forum, where you could see all of the questions being asked?

Since the last Firefox update I have been unable to login to my bank's website. Attached is a screenshot of the message that appears. As a test I tried logging in with Google Chrome and was successful so it is likely something with the last update of Firefox. Note that I am using Windows 7 and do not want to change to a newer version.

Any news on this?

Hey folks... I am running the latest ESR version for windows 7. I know, its limited support and stuff but I have this most annoying problem that just doesn't seem to want to go away.

Every day, several times a day, I am told there is an update available. I have gone in several times and downloaded and installed the latest release. The install goes fine, there are no issues. Yet, over and over again I am told there is an update... but I have the latest version installed.

In the past, I have used the "distribution" folder trick to stop updates and I have removed that a long time ago. I can't figure out why it keeps telling me there are updates, when there are none.

How can I stop this from doing updates where there are no updates to get? It's driving me nuts...

I have Ooma as my phone provider. I can't get into Ooma's login site because I get this message at every try:

"The page isn't redirecting properly"

I occasionally get this message when opening Firefox, but a retry always works. Not when trying to get into my Ooma account. And yet it works without any problem on Safari. I would prefer to use Firefox.

Hi there,

I'm migrating from Arc Browser and I was looking for a way to have two profiles, one for personal and one for work; for each have separate browsing history, cookies etc. and be able to switch between them either with a keyboard shortcut or in two clicks like in Arc.

If I understand correctly I can separate the users by going to about:profiles and creating such profiles, however the switch between them doesn't seem as seamless. I guess I'd like to create two separate workspaces rather than profiles, with complete separation of everything I do within each.

I tried the Multi-Account Containers extension but it doesn't seem to be this its purpose.

Hope I was clear in the explanation, apologies for the newbness.

Thank you!

Yesterday morning everything was fine. I attempted to check something last night on my Fidelity account, and got the following message: "Sorry, we can't complete this action right now. Please try again." Same this morning. Fidelity could not figure it out, and is sending me to you for assistance.

FYI: I am able to connect to all other accounts I attempted: NY Times, Chase bank, etc. Also, when I tried to log in to Fidelity via Microsoft Edge, I was able to get in. (NOTE: I DO NOT wish to use Edge or any other browser - I prefer Firefox)

Can someone help me?

Also, I just wanted to restore the Basic Toolbar- that mysteriously disappeared. There was no option for that under the hamburger & more tools. Instead I now have a 3rd toolbar because of the customization options -- & I don't know how to get rid of that/ It appears UNDER my tabs bar.

I do not know how I got there, but I somehow got into a situation where I could push a button 'Refresh', or in Dutch 'Opfrissen'. Firefox then started to remove settings and extensions. Which is all well documented if you know it. But the user interface is just crap here. Especially in Dutch. Because 'opfrissen' is something that sounds totally innocent in my native language. I at most expected it to remove some cache memory. The last thing I expect pushing a button with that name is that it does what it did, without any warning! PLEASE change that. And please do not translate it with 'opfrissen', just explicitly say: Go back to standard configuration and remove extensions. I am not dumb that I could not understand what that should do. Opfrissen.... Pfff, please change at least the translation!

And I got really angry when it happened!

Ever since I installed Firefox 123.0, when I execute a search on Yahoo.com, Firefox automatically opens up a new window or tab (depending upon how you have it set up in settings) when it didn't before. When I try this with Firefox using Google.com to search, it does NOT open up a new window/tab. But when I try it with Yahoo.com when using Google Chrome, it does NOT open up a new tab. So it would appear that the behavior is being caused by something in Firefox.

I tried making various changes in settings and Firefox about:config that were recommended in previous questions here, but they did not alter the behavior. I would like the behavior to return to simply performing the search within the same window (I can always scroll back to get the original page). Can anyone help?

I just added "TextArea" to my extensions & it only can be selected by clicking on the picture puzzle icon at the right edge of the address/search bar for a dropdown box of extensions. I would like to display it and a number of others now only on the dropdown on visible toolbars, but can't move them there. When I select "Customize," it shows some basic icons not being displayed, but only the basics and does not include extensions I've added recently. I used to keep icons in the All-in-One Sidebar on my left margin, the Vertical Toolbar on my right margin & the bottom Status bar in pre-version 57 FF and don't want the extra hassle of having to use the dropdown for commonly used extensions. How do I get these icons moved into an existing visual space on my browser? I have 3 36" HDMI screens & plenty of real estate to play with, but no way to use it in FF for new extensions. Do I have to continue to use alternatives like WaterFox Classic & Pale Moon?

It has recently come to my attention that Mozilla may not continue to support Firefox browsers installed on Windows 7 computers after Jan. 2023, when the extended support for Windows 7 ends. Is that correct?

Will Firefox continue to work, but not receive security updates after that date?

Will Firefox still work on a Windows 7 computer that gets patches from 0Patch?

Thanks!
