Before I close the Firefox browser i go to Settings>Clear Data> Cookies & Site Data>Cached Web Content. I clear all and the Cached Web Content is lowered to 45kb. History is deleted. There is nothing in Manage Data or Manage Exceptions. The computer is turned off. A day later the computer is turned on and Cached Web Content is 2Mb.

Windows Defender anti-virus malware scan and full scan have been run. The computer is up to date, Win 10 Home, version 21H1, OS build 19043.1237.

Any idea what is causing Cached Web Content to grow from 45kb to 2 Mb when the computer is turned off?

I am VERY unhappy !!! For a long time I have had Firefox reopen tabs from the previous session, but today they are all gone !! I have read in some of the community questions that the recent update unchecked that option and when I looked, that was what had happened. I tried clicking on "restore previous session" but that only opened tabs I had used and closed this morning. Is it in any way possible to get back those tabs I used to have? It also seems that some of my recent Bookmarks have disappeared as well, yet it has retained bookmarks that are over 13 years old. I am running Windows 10 Professional version 20H2 Build 19042.1237... and Firefox version 92.0 Win

I'm having a problem with a couple videos where the video and audio aren't in sync. For example, the video in the first screenshot is only 2:30, yet when I play it, it seems to partially mimic the video in the second screenshot; it "extends" to 2:41, and it plays the video from the second video. However, it plays the audio from the first video and the progress bar still only goes to 2:30, yet the video keeps playing for another 11 seconds without any audio until the video from the second video ends. Seeking forward causes the different recommendations to pop up as if the video had ended normally.

I am using a MSI laptop on Windows 10. I have restarted my computer, cleared my cookies and cache, and updated Firefox to the latest version. This problem persists with all of my extensions disabled, and when logged in or out of YouTube (no matter the account) or in incognito mode. At first, I thought it had something to do with the video and/or channel, since the other video with the same problem was also uploaded by AmericanDadVEVO. When I tried watching the video in the first screenshot on Microsoft Edge (which I barely use and have no extensions on), however, it worked normally.

Any help would be appreciated! I really do not want to switch to another browser.

Hello,

Today is my first day back in the office after the pandemic; in preparation I set up a Firefox account at home and turned on syncing but it doesn't seem to have worked upon logging in at work.

Within the "Connected Services" section it shows two desktop computers which seems right (one at home, one at the office) but I don't have any saved passwords nor open tabs etc that I was expecting on the office PC. I get the option to "Send tab to device" but there are no synced tabs in there to open.

Can anyone help? I'm at a loss.

Thanks

Certain bookmarks don't open after 92.0 (64 bit) update

I'm using Firefox version 92.0 (64 bit) on an HP 350 G1 notebook running Windows 10.

It seemed that it was after the 92.0 (64 bit) update that I cannot open bookmarks that are PDFs. The correct URL is present, but nothing loads, it's just a blank black page. I have tried turning off the add-ons and refreshing the page, closing and reopening Firefox with the add-ons manually turned off, restarting Firefox with the add-ons disabled, and restarting in safe mode. All of the attempts were performed without any positive results.

I can copy the URL on Firefox and paste it in Edge, and it opens the correct page. I installed Chrome against my better judgment and pasted the URL, and the correct page opens again. I can copy the URL in either Edge or Chrome, paste it on Firefox, and the same results occur as if I clicked on the link in my bookmarks on Firefox. I can click on the bookmark from either the home page or a page that's already opened, and nothing happens. The URL doesn't change on the existing page, and on the home page, "Search with DuckDuckGo or enter address" in the UL space does not change to the URL that I'm trying to open. Is there something I'm missing?

This is one of the URLs that I am trying to open if you want to try it yourself on Firefox: https://www.att.com/idpassets/images/support/wireless/Devices-Working-on-ATT-Network.pdf

I only ever use Edge when I'm having an issue with Firefox, (usually it's when I'm trying to log on to an account or something and I can't, then I realize that it may be one of my add-ons preventing it. I then disable them one by one until I'm able to achieve what I want.

I don't want to have to switch back and forth between Firefox and Edge just to view three PDFs, so if someone knows what could be the resolution to this, I would appreciate it greatly.

Some websites that I use display the font Helvetica insead of the intented font. I only have this problem on Firefox. I do not have Helvetica installed, my default fonts (including advanced settings) are set to Arial. How could I fix this? I had provided 2 screenshots with Firefox and Chrome to see the difference.

I visit a website that hasn't upgraded to https yet. Whenever one of its pages times out (Firefox reports 'Unable to connect'), the location protocol changes from http to https. I suppose Firefox is trying to help me out by seeing if I typed in the wrong protocol.

This is annoying because I have to manually edit the address bar and remove the s from https and hit enter. I'd rather be able to refresh without thinking. Is there a way of turning this protocol changing functionality off?

I browsed a clothing website for less than 5 minutes by typing in the address and not using any links. Shortly after I receive an email asking if I was still interested in what I was looking at. Does Firefox share my email address with websites I'm visiting? I believe the email is coming from SafeOpt, not the website I visited. I do have "do not track" options selected in Firefox.

I'm about to lose it and uninstall this browser for good. Once again, I've been thrown a disgusting color palette and design down on my throat with no choice to change it with the latest update. Firefox Color doesn't work anymore. Any tips on how to change the browser colors and keep it that way? No I don't want any themes, I want my own colors.

I am trying to change my e-mail address by following the steps provided in here. According to the support pages, in order to do that I need to add a secondary e-mail address and then make it primary.

Until there everything's clear. My issue, though, comes precisely when I try to add that information. The system doesn't recognize the new address. Instead, a message appears saying "Account already exists", when that's not possible, since I never delivered it or linked it with Firefox before, nor even I have received or accepted any validation through the said e-mail. I'm guessing that Mozilla ain't grasping that the address really belongs to another e-mail client.

Illustration: Let's say my current address is <example100@outlook.com> When I try to add the following secondary address <example100@protonmail.com>, the aforementioned message will prompt.

Why? What's going on? Is there any solution available? Thank you beforehand, I can't wait to hear from somebody with a remedy.

Help!! How do I hide the tab bar in version 92?

I put off updating to version 92 because I knew what would happen: I'd have to jump through hoops to hide the tab bar again. I NEVER use tabs. I have a wide screen monitor and I prefer opening new windows to using tabs. In that way I can look at 2 or more pages at the same time.

Windows 10 x64 Pro Firefox 92.0

Is there a way to restore the appearance of Firefox Bookmarks to v88 or earlier? The extra space between each Bookmark is a pain and none of the "fixes" seem to work.

I am not up with messing around with css files to make things seem as they was.

I have Proton Colors Add-on and that supposed to make things look as they did before but they do not.

When Firefox updated to 91.0 I reinstalled v88 which was fine - apart from Firefox nagging me on a daily basis to update to 92.0 which I stupidly did.

Any suggestions please?
