I have used Firefox for many years now and love it and keep telling my friends and colleagues to switch to this browser rather than Google Chrome.. There is something that happens irregularly with my 'pinned tabs', every now and again when I close Firefox the next time I open it up, they are all gone. I go through history and replace them and 'Pin' them and its all fine for a while then it happens again. Most recently - in the last two days it has happened twice, it takes some time for me to restore the tabs and pin them, then I have gone into 'Options' and I have set the box (ticked it) for 'Restore previous session' but its not happening. Also when I go to the 'three bars' up on the top ribbon on the far right the option to 'Restore previous session' simply isn't there! I have no idea what is happening but its very frustrating and I would really appreciate some answer as to what might possibly be going on? Many thanks for your time, much appreciate and love your work everyone.

Whenever I open a youtube video, go to other tabs, come back after some time and unpause it, it either takes 1-2 seconds for it to start, or the video unpauses without sound, which comes back after 1-2 seconds. Is this normal? If it is, is there a setting I can change?

I exported my passwords from dashlane to a csv. The only information in the csv is url, domain, username, password. It is missing the form action, time stamps, and guid. Importing from file did not work. I re-ordered the info so it was in "url","username","password","httpRealm","formActionOrigin","guid","timeCreated","timeLastUsed","timePasswordChanged" format (once again, missing the last 5 fields). I made some fake passwords in firefox to see the format. form action was blank anyways. I tried copying the time info fields (from the fake passwords I made) to my csv, still didn't work. I think I probably need a guid? I tried leaving it blank, didn't work. I tried putting in "unk", didn't work.


I give up, please, how do I import passwords from Dashlane? I can export in json, excel, and csv.

For more than a year I have used a member log in portal on the website for a club of which I am a member. Suddenly yesterday afternoon the log on button stopped working. With the pointer over the button there is a color change, but clicking on the button does nothing. I have tried form 2 computers, a cell phone and, to dismiss a network problem, tried form another computer on a different network and provider. I did discover that using another browser I am able to log in with out a problem.

I have tried restarting the computer, restarting firefox, clearing cookies and site data and clearing the cache. Nothing has changed.

I've tried deselecting all of the Firefox search options, but since the last Windows update (version 1904), whenever I try searching for something in the search box on the Google home page, I suddenly find myself writing in the address bar, and this is very annoying as the https://www.google.com address remains there and the search returns all sorts of things. Is there a way to stop this from happening? I've also noticed that the various one-click search engines that I put in the search box (to the right of the address bar) are now also displayed in the pane that opens when the address bar is used for searching, and this had never happened before.

Is Babylon dictionary harmful for PC ? I heard or read somewhere it is unwanted program. Just I scan my PC using Adware it removes it soon, though I add exception. After each time I install the dictionary, I go to programs and features and uninstall its toolbar. Also, this process does not limit the function of Adware to allow Babylon works. I see we cannot neglect this software of translation as much as we are translators. It works easily on computer and can translate document just to click right shift + ctri So, for the mentioned reason it is very much helpful to us. But how to get rid off its ventures ? Thank you in advance

When, I try to connect the wifi, wifi will connected after few hour automatically. It show the following error:

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at mnit.ac.in. If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

Try again later.
 Check your network connection.
 If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

Please give your valuable suggestion.

So today I logged onto my pc as usual and I decide to click on Mozilla Firefox to use the search engine, but when it opened, the new tab screen had nothing on it and when I tried to search for something or go on a website through the search bar at the top, nothing happens. All it does is have the website link at the top. I've tried reinstalling Firefox and it hasn't fixed the problem, do any of you know a solution?

Im using ver 80.0.1 (64-bit) with win 10 inspite of my best efforts when opening FF Browser after a few mins, or else whenever I open a second browser page (which I used to do effortlessly) first mini-pic in bottom task bar goes blank, secondly page refuses to open and finally entire window destabilises and then disappears of to top left corner of wallpaper screen never to return, despite fact that task manager reports it as still running. Have removed Adobe Flash in case of conflicts and tried in safe-mode in case of conflicted add-ons. No luck

.....I've used This browser for a number of years now with no major issue. Now...it's acting up and I'm incredibly unhappy. I've had issues for 6 weeks +/- now. This is now an ongoing/daily issue and it's causing problems. I'm about to change browsers. (I just updated Firefox to 80.0.1 (64-bit) in the hopes this would fix the problem, it didn't.) .....I started having an issue approximately 7 weeks ago with Firefox, it was working fine before this and had for quite some time. I will be in the middle of doing something and have to pause/shut down/log off the computer and deal with something else. When I come back, sign back in, then open Firefox - the installation has changed it's format to an Eastern European language. [I, personally, don't speak or read any Eastern European languages.] I will go into settings, check the language set up is still in English American, I will click on Language Preferences, add English Canadian, then delete English Canadian, check it's back to English American. Restart the Browser and go back to what I was doing. I'm now doing this 2 to 4 times a day. It's getting old. .....What can I do, not do to fix this issue.
