Hi,

The electric cut out while my Firefox browser was open. Now I get a crash every time I try to open Firefox. I can't send a crash report and windows will not fix the problem. How do I fix this? I need Firefox to work as it has all my passwords and bookmarks saved. Why can't I simply move over to the developer edition? I did try but the morons at Morzilla didn't add any options for moving bookmarks and passwords from Firefox to the developer edition. Thanks a lot Morzilla, you really fucked up my day.

I opened firefox and got this message from Bitdefender. I had to reboot computer to stop the endless warnings.

firefox.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an unmatching security certificate to content-signature-2.cdn.mozilla.net. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since the used certificate was issued for a different web address than the targeted one.

I was trying to get rid of a FaceBook post (by them) using the ellipsis. There was a block option there and I 'assumed' *chuckles* it was just for the post. But now I've lost ALL my ellipsis on all the posts. :( I tried contacting Facebook but I fear it was a Firefox browser thing? Or am I wrong. I'm an idiot. I have no clue. *chuckles*

Restore Previous Session Not Working

Having used Firefox for a decade or more, I have relied on the Restore Previous Session option to open my Firefox and display the same tabs and screens as were displayed when Firefox was closed. That no longer works. You can see in the screenshot below that the option check box is ticked.

This is a fairly recent phenomenon; however, I cannot say for certain when it started. I think it was when the last ver. 88nnn or the first ver 89 were released and installed.

What, if anything, can I do to return Firefox to Restoring Previous Session?

Previously I used to use "Forget This Website" from the History panel to quickly clear the history of a specific website. But it was not deleting it's saved passwords. Now I realize, that when I Forget a Website, it actually does delete the saved passwords too. I am confused now. Was this behavior always like this? can it be that because I have Sync on several devices, the deleted password gets restored somehow? I would like to be able to forget a website without loosing it's login details...

Hello there. I have a 'funny' problem since last night. Fierfox in default mode is unable to display Ä Ö Ü on certain websites. It's a fresh installation without any Add-Ons. When entering troubleshooting mode it can display it. So the thing is: something is altering the displaymode of websites betwine modes.

where do I find the variables that do this in the config - or worse in the registry?

I intentionally set my browser so that I can search from the search box in the center of this page. However, when I start typing in that box I get all kinds of stuff from the address bar blocking the box and what I'm typing. I don't want to search from the address bar, I want to use that search box. How do I get this feature back?

Before, all I had to do was uncheck the box in the second screen shot but that no longer seems to work. What's the new trick or why have the search box if you can't search from it?

Also, after a search, my links always opened in a new tab. That no longer seems to be working that way. I prefer my links open in a new tab in case I want to look at other results while keeping that tab available.

I just updated to Firefox v.89.0. When I open up a new tab, I get my Bing search engine with a text box in the middle of the page. When I start typing in this text box, my typing automatically goes instead into the address text box. Prior to this version of Firefox, my typing stayed the in Bing (or Google, etc.) search text box. I've tried to look up solutions which sent me to About:config keyword.enabled and other settings but nothing I've tried fixes this problem. I want my search in the larger (Bing) search text box, not in the address (urlbar) text box which is much smaller text. As I said, prior to this version of FIrefox, my typing stayed in the search text box and didn't automatically get moved into the address text box. Please advise.

I am not sure what to attribute the problem to. I use Earthlink - I know, I'm a sap. They had a release recently, with no warning, and its far worse than the previous version. Innumerable errors and lags. Spam handling got worse, and it wasn't great.

They might be preventing the spellcheck from working. Their own spell checker was never great, but was rendered demented in the new release. It flags every plural word as a misspell, for one instance. The code was clearly untested.

I just don't like Gmail because you can't sort anything. The fonts are thread-like - intended for the young. Not for imperfect minds. The effect is 'our way or *** you.'

Earthink's folder system is somewhat reminiscent of Outlook Express, which I loved. Since they killed it, I don't want to use Microsoft db products, lest they hold my stuff hostage one day, or leave me in the lurch.

There should be a universal format, forever readable, is one so chooses.

I just right clicked in this window, composing my plea, and the spell check is there. So my inability to access it must be another 'gift' from Earthlink, the firm with the worst designers and programmers of any I've encountered.

They have arranged to bury consumer complaints, and have concocted a way to make false claims appear in search returns. Their site is covered with 'best' badges that can't possibly be deserved, or have been given. As a customer since 1997, I feel some authority to say what I'm saying, as a witness to their devolution and ever more blatant unconcern.

If you only knew.

I'd go to Thunderbird except you withdrew support for it for a time, I think I read, which makes it untrustworthy to me.

Is there any way I can access the spell check function other than a browser input window ? I don't know if can 'force' earthlink to use it only in my compose windows, but it is running with Firefox.

Anyway, thanks for any help you can give me.
