Greetings! Each and every time I close out Firefox, it deletes my pop-up approved exceptions list. There are two sites I visit regularly that use pop-up windows for displaying information, and if I add them to the exceptions list, they are gone (along with any others) the next time I open Firefox. This doesn't seem like the type of thing that should get deleted with clear history on close settings. It is happening with version 80.0.1, and happened with the prior version. Any thoughts on what might be causing this and/or solutions would be most appreciated.

I am unable to open just a single homepage since the last update. I have just a single website URL as my homepage, same as I have for years, but even though FF options shows only a single custom URL for homepage on launch it opens two tabs, both to the same homepage.

I live in the Netherlands but have both Firefox and Windows set to English-US as my default (and only) language in the settings. However, when I browse to some sites, I notice I'm redirected to the Dutch-language version of the page and usually the URL will have the /nl slug added to it, or /?lang=nl but I do not want that. It happens with Google, Adobe, and many other major ones.

I don't use a VPN so obviously my IP address is detected as being from NL but is there a way to force websites in Firefox to only display in English? It even happens if I go to amazon.com, I'm redirected to amazon.nl.

I have designated that opening a new tab opens Google. I would like the cursor to be in the search box on the page not in the address box. I'm sure this is new behavior for Firefox. It's annoying to start typing and then realize i'm in the address box typing in the middle of the address. How can I change it?

I have my preferences to set to keep my logged and save cookies, but lately I have been getting logged out of websites I use regularly such as Reddit, GMail, Yahoo. History is set to clear when I close my browser because I don't need to be reminded that I searched for random words so I could spell them correctly.

This morning for example, I signed into Reddit because I had gotten signed out since last night. Did my reading. Closed my browser. Came back. Opened Reddit again and was signed out. It doesn't happen every time I close my browser. I may stay signed in for a few days with no issue or, like this morning, I don't stay signed in for very long. I even got a message that I wasn't signed in on tab I opened from another tab.

Is this a bug? Some undocumented feature?

It's not all bad though since it keeps me from constantly checking FB which I use 2FA for and hate going through.

I have used Firefox as my default in going to my medical portal. Suddenly, I am getting this message: Bad Request Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand. Size of a request header field exceeds server limit.

First started month ago, then it started working again, now it does not at all. My medical provider said it was the fault of Firefox, I cleared cache and cookies, still did not work. Was able to get it on chrome, unfortunately could not download my appointment to my Outlook calendar. Went to Edge, that works fine, does download to my Outlook. I should be happy, but I want my Firefox back, I don't care for Edge.

When I am logged in to my financial account and try to go to my Balances page, Firefox blocks the redirect. I cannot find any way to stop this, so have to hit the Allow button every time. Seems like a strange place for Firefox to be blocking a page from loading, especially since I rarely get that behavior anywhere else.
