Hello. I suspect there was a cyber attack on April 1 2024. All of a sudden,having problems crashing with more than 1 browser. My Brave browser would open,and then crash with multiple tabs that had been saved. My Mozilla history was cleared,and I want it back because I need to find all sites I have visited from time to time for logins etc,but they are now gone.I have tried importing all of my Brave history,login forms to Firefox,but not sure where to located them or where they would be stored.

Right now i am focused on getting a Firefox profile from before April 1

I have never had to deal with this sort of thing before so i am saying that i may be somewhat noobish on this.I just want some expert instruction on what to do here,and how to do it.I,m not 100 percent sure if i can do it correctly on my own by googling this myself,then attempting it.Brave continues to open then crash right after,so I dont know whats going on there with the userdata folder in the appdata folders with regard to Brave. Everytime i try to install an older version of Brave,it says i already have a curent version of it,and i dont want to uninstall brave then reinstall it again,or not sure if i should do this. ThankYou.

Goodd day from UK I run firefox esr 115.9.1 and find the the F5 refresh key does NOT refresh the images. The same applies when using the "reload" icon in the menu.

Reading other posts, nothing seems to apply here.

There are NO add-ons at all and everything is cleared on close. The text DOES seem to change.

As a web developer checking updates this is extremely annoying as only hope is keep closing the browser (to clear everything) and restart - the loads new images etc.

I use several versions of Firefox (2, 20, 56) to ensure compatability with olf browsers and it seems to be only those over 100 with this issue.

Does anyone know if this is a "feature" or a"bug" and is there any simple (!) way around the issue?

Thanks

p.s. ALWAYS happens, not intermittently

I start Firefox from a batch file (Win7) on the first boot of the day. Manually I choose my "NEWS" bookmarks folder, then slide down to "Open all in tabs". (attached image) (Then I go pour a coffee while the news article tabs open and load data!)

Please and thank you, is there a way to specify this action from the command line? And if so, what is it?

I believe that I could use such a mechanism in other ways, such as opening all tabs in my "Forums" folder of bookmarks, or on Mondays, opening all tabs in my "Weekly" bookmarks folder.

Thank You, Chris

Since a few days, even though I have eliminated the accesses in new tab with ignore, when I start Firefox again they are back on the new tab page.

How do I proceed to eliminate them?

When trying to download a college lecture, instead of downloading, the file opens and runs in a new tab. In General Settings "Save files to" is set to "Downloads" and "MP3 file (audio/mp3)" is set to Save File. This worked fine for several years until the last few months. It currently works correctly in my Chrome browser, but I prefer using Firefox.

I need to install a browser on a Windows 7 laptop that I'm trying to get operational so the files / data can be migrated to another platform. I would like to use Firefox if possible.

I'm thinking I would need a prior version. If so, what version should I choose and where do I get it from?

The current / legacy browser is Brave but that has been disabled by installing Bitdefender as part of the ongoing cleanup process. --Thanks

FF doesn't reliably open my last session. It used to but for nearly 18 months now it has become hit and miss. I have FF docked on my taskbar (Win 7 sp1) when I click it some times it opens all my tabs (I have it set to do that) but more frequently it doesn't and just opens one tab. Usually I catch it and in history select the tab showing many other tabs and I get it all back, but this doesn't always work like today, no option to do that because there's nothing there. When is it likely to be fixed, I've been complaining about this for months. I've even suggested FF collects a stack of last sessions (say 20) each time a session is closed and have a fixed entry for that in the menu, but nothing seems to change. I'm heartily sick of it, it's such a basic requirement of any browser and yet with FF it's just a pain in the neck.

I tryed Firefox 115.8.0esr and 115.9.0esr 32Bit on Windows 7. (78.15.0 works) Firefox crashes(the whole program, i mean no tab) on "about:support" or some pages on support.mozilla.org like https://support.mozilla.org/de/kb/firefox-leistungseinstellungen always reproduceable.

I disabled all Addons, i disabled this power optimizion setting, removed usercrome.css same. With Firefox savemode it dont crash. Spyware is blocked, means datareporting/telemetry/ping by disabling the options and empty the urls (like on FF 78 but it dont crash). Somewhere i read firefox can crash on a empty url, but i assume its fixed long time ago. A wrong, unreachable or empty url should not crash on well programming. Think about countrys that blocks urls, adblocker, pihole and so on. I dont remember about what url i read.

Does the savemode revert all about:config settings? What does support.mozilla ask the browser that causes the crash? It know it seems to identify the Browser, but usual its done by useragent and no "internal" communication.

Then FF always crash on ebay.de search if you scroll or change settings while the page is not ready. Spyware is too blocked by Hardware, ebay may wait for some ad? But thats already on FF78 but on 115 it seems more often, this was not with FF 52. But some sites including ebay stops to work with FF52/78 so no choice.

I have been using igHome as my Firefox home page for many years. Yesterday when I opened Firefox multiple porn pages kept opening. I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and that didn't help. I tried CCleaner and Malwarebytes to scrub any issues but that has not helped. HOWEVER, if I log out of igHome the multiple pages do NOT open, so apparently this problem is related to my igHome login.

I am using Windows 7 on this laptop and I understand that is no longer supported, but is there any way to remove whatever is causing these sites to open when I log in to igHome?

Please note this problem does not occur on a newer laptop running Windows 10. I am able to use igHome with no issues.

Thanks!

Hello. I have a problem on an old laptop. The laptop cannot play videos with a resolution greater than 720 pixels. A situation often arises when you open a website and cannot watch a video there made by customers about a product. There is no option to select resolution on many sites, and browsers by default try to play videos at the maximum resolution, ignoring the capabilities of the laptop. The essence of the question is, is it possible to limit the video resolution for all sites in a browser or system?

Hi, I've always run dual monitors with no issues. Since some updates to FF I've had an annoying problem. When I close FF, part of the last page I browsed remains frozen on screen. If I open up any other app and move it over the part frozen FF image, the screen corruption is erased. The problem has remained through at least the last 3 FF updates.

I've been searching everywhere for an answer to this annoying isssue which only ocurred on FF shutdown and not Chrome. Last week I tried a solution which seems to have worked, but I kicked myself afterwards because I can't now recall the web page with the solution and need some help other could benefit from to explain what I did.

I remembered clearing certain caches (?) using FF settings, then deleting or renaming certain json files in a (?) profiles folder which I assumed would be recreated on the next FF boot?

I'm having a problem with websites not remembering my zoom percentage settings. The zoom settings were remembering on my administrator account until recently. The strange thing is that zoom settings on websites ARE remembered in my standard user account on the same device. I am talking about private browsing only & after I close the session & reopen another Firefox session. Thank you
