When I opened my computer, Firefox had crashed with the bug report window open. Without thinking however, I clicked on the Firefox icon in the toolbar which opened a new session in the homepage instead. When that happened, it didn't give me the option to restore my previous session (the option was grayed out) and hitting "Restart Firefox" in the crash window only opened another new tab at the home screen.

I had a decent number of tabs open that I would have like to keep open and I'm not able to remember all of them so is there a way to retrieve a lost session at this point?

I'm a web designer, trying to move away from Chrome because of privacy/security issues. I'm also 63 years old. My eyes are old. The text size on the tabs and bookmarks is very difficult to read. I don't want to increase the size of everything else - ***just the tab and bookmark text***. I've tried the fix seen elsewhere in the community for this question, but that doesn't change the size at all. If I increase the size, say by Zoom, that's a problem with my page layout. Can anyone help, please?

I'm on a Mac, but using an LG monitor, so no Retina display.

I was on a webpage and with multiple images on it. I went back to the same webpage with a different computer and one of the images is not there anymore.

The original computer, which is not connected to the network at this time still has the image I am looking for on the page.

When I go to download the image it does not save it.

It looks like it is waiting to download the image from the site where the image does not exist.

When I go to Tools>Page Info>Media I can see the image The Location shows the URL and file location but it no longer exists

the size is labeled as "Unknown (not cached)

Is there some way I can download the image as it is on my computer? By keeping the computer offline. I do not want to lose this picture.

address bar autocompletes to depreciated url; how to stop?

Hello,

I recently was forced to change the address of my blog from "universalism.com.au" to "universalism-au.com" (due to silly legal requirements introduced a few months back about requiring an ABN if you want to use the .au suffix).

"universalism.com.au" is now a dead link, but when I start typing "uni..." in the address bar, it always autocompletes to this old and depreciated url rather than my new one. I would like to be able to type "uni..." and have it autocomplete to the new address, "universalism-au.com"

I have cleared what seems relevant from my browsing history, but no luck. Is this perhaps being caused by my default search engine (duckduckgo) recommending the wrong address?

I have attached a screenshot if this helps.

I want Firefox to autofill my saved addresses, but I don't want it to automatically save new addresses.

I fill in all kinds of forms, with variations of my name, address, etc., and with other people's info. Firefox saves those variations and autofill becomes effectively unreliable, filled with dozens of erroneous entries, until I manually delete all but the three I want to keep.

It seems silly that there is one checkbox to control both the saving and the filling. Can we get a sub-setting where I can uncheck “save new addresses that I enter”? Or is there an about:config option for it?

Hello.

I have a question. In which folder is my Firefox browsing history stored, please?

I ask because I want to create a kind of "browsing diary", and tried to export my browsing history via Mozilla History View. But it couldn't find the folder with my browsing history.

I'm working from a WINDOWS 7 64 Bit computer, and my Firefox version is Firefox 74.0 64 Bit. With those specifications, where do I look for the folder with my browsing history?

Thanks in advance for any answers, and have a great Sunday!

Hi! Chrome based browsers (like chromium or Vivaldi) permit to obtain 96KHz or even 192KHz float 32bit audio output. Firefox stuck at float32le 48KHz. This is not sufficient for me. i have a Linux LinuxMint 20 on a STRIX Z270G audio chip @ 96KHz and headsets like Sennheiser HD650 and GRADO RS1e so able to perfectly perceive the effects of harmonics up to frequency my chip can produce (96KHz band pass).

Question: Is possible in Firefox 78 for Linux to change the max frequency from 48KHz to 96KHz maintaining the float32le setup?

Thank you to all advices!

I am developing some html and javascript applications. During testing I use the windows.alert box to show some innerHTML values. This worked fine, until after a while, the Alert box window size changes to a small window, showing only the horizontal slider.

I have restarted the browser, but that didn't change anything.

What can I do to have the full Alert window back?

Thanks for your help, Jan

When I open a first Firefox instance from taskbar in Windows 10, if I do a Google search then right click on any of the results, then select "Open Link in New Tab", FF lalways opens that link in a new window, not a new tab as requested. The new window takes up the right hand half of my display which means I have to manually size it larger or maximize it. This behavior continues as long as I use the first FF window to open any links - they never open in a tab of the original window and only create lots of windows - this is very hard to deal with IMHO. Now here's the weird part - If I use one of the new windows, then FF behaves just as it should. Do a Google search and all links can be opened in new tabs in the new window, as requested. I did not notice this strange behavior until about April 10 when I believe I accepted a new update to FF.

FF keyboard shortcut "move tab to start" (ctrl + shift + home) does not work for me. I've tried using my regular FF profile (a dozen addons or so) and a VANILLA profile with no addons. The same is true for Ctrl+Shift+End shortcut.

i've also tried on two different keyboards.

so, is it me, is the documentation wrong or is this broken?

thanks

Does anyone know of a SIMPLE solution to stop the irritating expanding address bar from doing just that? At first I could stop it in about:config - but that no longer appears to be possible. Why do Mozilla insist on user no longer having that option. I seem no longer to be able to use Firefox. It seems to be the domain of the computer-tech savvy and not a browser for ordinary jerks like me who don't understand a word of the jargon and have difficulty following what seem to be simple tasks to other users. All I want to do is stop that irritating expanding address bar but it seems like I have to become a fully skilled coder just to be able to get into a regular-joe website. It's not what I signed up for. Help? Anybody...?

Up until the release of 78.0.1, I have been deleting items from the address bar by highlighting the item and then holding the Shift key and tapping Delete. This doesn't work now, much like when it changed from just hitting the Delete key, so what is the process for deleting specific items from the address bar now? The Help pages are no help because they still say to do the Shift+Delete way.
