I am on macOS Mojave and since the last Firefox update, I have been experiencing problems when printing a PDF attachment in my email. When I open the attachment, it opens in html which is fine. Then when I click print, a new tab opens with the printer settings, etc. but Firefox also launches a new browser, not just a new tab in the same browser. I have tried to change the print settings, reset the print settings, etc. but it has not helped. I can print the same attachment in another browser, such as chrome or safari without any issues.

The attached image shows my browser in the background with the pdf and printer window open in one tab and then the newly launched browser in the foreground which is blank.

Is it possible to restore a lost session after another session was started?

I relogged my PC then a firefox window opened (not my homepage) which i accidently closed. Then i opened firefox and it opened to my homepage. I clicked restore previous session but all that was there was the page i had just closed that i had not wanted.

I tried crashing firefox and opening previous session but still brings me to this session.

Is my only option to go through my history for last many months to open all these tabs I previosly had open in 2 pages?

FF 93.0 64-bit - Windows 10

When I booted up the system and ran FF the first time for the day, its window opened, and it even asked for the primary password. After that, nothing I typed in the URL box came out. I could open new tabs but not able to switch to them. All Chromium-based browsers and Edge in the same system worked fine.

I did the following trying to fix the problem: I restarted Win10 and ran FF93. Same problem. I restarted using Troubleshooting Mode. Same problem. I reinstalled using the complete package. Same problem. I installed using FF92 and FF91. Same problem. I refreshed FF93 using Troubleshooting Mode. Same problem. I used Win10 Safe Mode to run FF93. It worked. I uninstalled FF93, removed as much as I could all traces of FF and Mozilla in the Win registry, and reinstalled FF93. Same problem.

In the end, I had to use Win10 Recovery and revert to an earlier date to fix it.

The first incident happened about two weeks ago. It happened again this morning. My use of PC has been routine for years, I would say for more than a decade, or at least in the last five years. No extraordinary applications or routines.

BTW, I haven't updated my Win10 in years, because doing so often times gave me new mysterious issues to troubleshoot, courtesy of MS. You should very well know Win updates produce issues, and the bug fixes following them produce even more. The annoying thing is I would research on the issues and find out later (sometimes days) that the updates were the culprits.

This is the second time it happened to my FF93, and I feel I have to report this to get some idea about why this is happening (only to me?) and how to fix or prevent it without having to go into Recovery (again?).

Firefox keeps choosing the wrong default directory to save images to

I used to save all my images to one folder, but it started getting big, and it was difficult to find what I needed, so I created a couple new directories inside that folder (one for cool space images, one for memes, etc.)

When I go to save an image, I have Firefox ask me where to save every time, because I use a few different folders for different things. On any other browser, the folder that would pop up by default is the last one you used. So if I saw a collection of cool space pictures, I should only have to navigate to the "space pictures" folder once.

Firefox refuses to do that. It keeps wanting to save everything in the parent directory. I'm sick of having to navigate to the right directory every single time. How do I make it choose the last folder I used as my default location?

[PL]: Zwracam się do Państwa z uprzejmą prośbą i pytaniem: jak przywrócić sesję w Mozilli Firefox bez odświeżania przywracanych kart? Podczas użytkowania, Mozilla Firefox niespodziewanie się zamknęła. Pojawiła się możliwość przywrócenia sesji (co zostało zaprezentowane na dołączonym zrzucie ekranu). Zależy mi, by po wciśnięciu przycisku ,,Przywróć sesję", wszystkie przywrócone karty otworzyły się bez odświeżania, czyli innymi słowy, by otwarte w tych kartach strony internetowe nie zostały odświeżone. Niektóre strony internetowe po odświeżeniu nie będą już aktywne bądź nie będą już posiadały informacji, które są mi niezbędne do dalszej pracy, dlatego zależy mi, by odzyskać je w takim stanie, w jakim były one przed nieoczekiwanym zamknięciem Mozilli Firefox, gdyż jest to sytuacja, która nie wynika z mojej winy tylko z zaistniałej awarii Mozilli Firefox. Proszę o odpowiedź, co należy zrobić (np. co zmienić w ustawieniach przeglądarki Mozilla Firefox lub gdziekolwiek indziej), by przywracając sesję, karty nie zostały odświeżone. Jeśli znają Państwo jakieś inne sposoby, by karty w przeglądarce nie zostały odświeżone (związane np. z przywracaniem systemu do punktu przywracania bądź z połączeniem internetowym), to proszę o wskazówki, ponieważ nieoczekiwane zamknięcie Mozilli Firefox spowodowało mi ogromne kłopoty. Z góry serdecznie dziękuję za pilną pomoc, ponieważ jest mi ona potrzebna jak najszybciej z uwagi na moje obowiązki.

[EN]: I am asking you with a kind request and a question: how to restore a session in Mozilla Firefox without refreshing the restored tabs? Mozilla Firefox quit unexpectedly while in use. There is an option to restore the session (as shown in the attached screenshot). After pressing the "Restore session" button, I want all restored tabs to open without refreshing, in other words, that the websites opened in these tabs will not be refreshed. After refreshing, some websites will no longer be active or will no longer have information that is necessary for my further work, so I want to recover them in the state they were in before the unexpected shutdown of Mozilla Firefox, because this is a situation that is not my fault but the failure of Mozilla Firefox. Please. o answer what needs to be done (e.g. what to change in the settings of Mozilla Firefox or elsewhere) so that the tabs are not refreshed when restoring the session. system to a restore point or with an internet connection), I am asking for tips, because Mozilla Firefox unexpectedly shutdown I was in great trouble. Thank you very much in advance for your urgent help, because I need it as soon as possible due to my responsibilities.

I would like to create a FireFox shortcut in the Windows 10 Startup folder so FireFox loads automatically at boot time, in a minimized Window (or better yet, the system tray). There does not appear to be any way to make this happen. I have searched pretty extensively. If there is a way, I'd like to hear about it. If there isn't, I would like to suggest it as a feature for future development.

Hello, A folder titled 'Old Firefox Data' keeps appearing on my desktop. I googled when it orginally happened and after reading the help articles decided deleting it was alright. I had refreshed Firefox and wasn't concerned about deleting anything important. Now everytime I restart my computer a new folder with the same name appears. This wasn't happening before and doesn't seem normal. Thanks!

I am constantly unable to access websites. My data seems to clog up. I'm in my 70's and have no patience or training for sifting though numerous fixes and possible solutions. I've done my best with no improvement. My husband is having the same issues on his computer. All my previous efforts erase my sign ins and require me to constantly enter new sign in information for my common websites. I can use Safari and Chrome without these issues so unless I get some form of personalized help that doesn't require a great deal of technological skill, I'm leaving this browser greatly disappointed in the lack of support.

I don’t know. I changed my default browser in settings but Safari continues to show up on my iPhone.

I downloaded Google Authenticator but I don’t know what to do with it. I’m terribly confused! I just don’t know what I’m doing, and I don’t know what I am supposed to do. I did get a recovery key however. Please help me if you can. I get so confused when I read your instructions. The instructions say to click on so and so and I don’t know what to do or where to find what I’m supposed to click on.

Greetings!

I have Firefox for my browser and the home page is set to my.yahoo.com.

I cleared my browser and lost all my my.yahoo.com home page bookmarks and customized yahoo mail folders. I still have my Firefox bookmarks.

Can I retrieve the lost emails and bookmarks that were on yahoo? I did try restoring a previous Firefox version and also opening Firefox on a different browser, (Internet Explorer), and tried using a different computer, but Yahoo mail and bookmarks are still missing.

Bummed boomer!
