Since the release of Beta version 89.0b3, Firefox Beta on Win 10 keeps reverting back to .0b2. I cannot pinpoint exactly when it happens; sometimes after 'hibernation'; sometimes after 'sleep'. Getting damn frustrating, and I'm not nearly ready to move up from Windows.

How the heck do I track what's going on? All advice gratefully accepted!

Allowed "Refresh" upon installing new browser update and can't get back bookmarks and other data

I recently installed the Firefox 88 browser update to fix the problem that Windows would not recognize my Firefox browser in order to make it my default. Upon researching the issue, it stated that I needed to uninstall my old version of Firefox and reinstall the latest version. At the end of the installation before it completed the installation, it asked if I wanted to "Refresh" my browser. I read how it would streamline and speed up my browsing experience and it seemed like a "good" idea. I agreed to the "Refresh" and the browser finished its installation. I checked into setting Firefox as my default browser and Windows recognized it. Great, the re-installation worked.

I then proceeded to open Firefox only to realize that any custom setting, including my 15+ years of bookmarks were gone. I began to panic! I noticed that there was an "Old Firefox Data" file now on my desktop. I looked inside and realized that it contained my old data, including bookmarks, etc. I began searching online for how to get it back into my browser. I have read 7-8 tutorials and 3-4 Youtubes that supposedly fix the problem, but to no avail. Please help as I do not want to lose all my bookmarks and while not computer illiterate, cannot seem to figure out how to get them to reinstall into the new Firefox browser update.

Thank you for your help!

My website runs NGINX with PageSpeed module. It's fronted by a CDN. When I visit the homepage on Edge and Chrome, most of the images are webp and yet on Firefox they are jpg.

My Firefox version is 88.0 64 bit for Windows 10.

Does anyone know why this is happening as visitors to my site in Firefox are getting a slower response

Thanks

When I pushed the right button of the mouse to choose the shortcut of "copy link", its shortcut changed from"A" to "L". I do not know why and when this change happened. It was "A" 3 hours ago.

As I use the left hand to push the keyboard and the right hand to move the mouse, it is very inconvenient. I appreciate it if you tell me how to change the setting.

Since I started using Firefox many years ago I have allowed it to remember history and every couple of weeks have delated the oldest history pages. Recently Firefox history covers only today and this page disappears when I close Firefox. Firefox is set to remember history but the function seems to have gone. How can I resurrect it?

When clicking "open link in new tab" Firefox sometimes opens in new window instead

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.

Hello, I've been able to take screenshots, one of my favorite features, and the selection to do so was located by tapping on the 3 dots in the browser bar. Today I made the selection to take a screenshot and the option was not there.

I followed the instructions from earlier posts on how to check to see if the option was True or False and in the area that showed me if it was still available. They were correct.

Is there any other reason why that choice would not be there?

Hi,

Straight to the point,

I live in Colombia, the search suggestions that come up when using the default Google search engine on Firefox are on Spanish and are all related to the country.

This does not happen when I search normally on Google.com. I already set the search results on Google.com to another region, and the language to English.

It seems to me, the problem is the default Google search engine on Firefox, since this does not happen when I use the Bing search engine.

I would like to keep Google as my search engine and search suggestions on, Is it possible to set it so that the search suggestions that show up on the address bar are from another region, more specifically, the US?

Thank you.

Hi, I accidentally DLed FF88 without checking the details w/r/t functionality.

Several of the changes severely compromise my ability to use FF for my job.

Examples are the 'view image' which is now gone from right-click and replaced with 'open image in new tab' --this disrupts my work flow. And 'save image to pocket' etc is not useful for me, but happens to be right where I normally click on another function.

Is there a relatively seamless way to undo the FF88 'upgrade' ? TIA
