I signed off my computer and closed all apps. When I sign back on and went to Firefox, all of my open windows and tabs were gone. I have tried all the instructions of how to restore the previous sessions. By now, mine is not the previous session, but the session last week. It even looks like that there have been some changes in the bar where I put "Google" to pull up the search page. I have tried all the instructions. Does anyone know how to restore my tabs and open window from a week ago. I had LOTS of them

Any help is appreciated

My bookmarks and history are gone. There is a red banner across the top, which reads, "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem." No matter what I do, I can't seem to get either fixed.

I have Bing set up as my default search engine and it has worked fine for years. Now all of the sudden, any search I request, whether in the address bar or search window is completed by Yahoo. I have tried everything I know to try to fix this but to no avail. Also, when I click the Add-ons button to check for add -ons that I perhaps placed in error, a new blank tab opens up. I'm wondering if I should just delete Firefox and then re-install it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

After update to firefox 80 sometimes random pages do not load. They open as blank white page with refresh button being inactive. Only way to solve this problem is close page, open new tab and try to load this page again.

This is completely random, happening on all sites, opened from links on other sites, bookmarks or speed dial. No idea what could cause it. Maybe firefox has some problems with creating new process for new tab if my process limit is set to 1?

When I open all my bookmarks (I have over 200 tabs), the articles from getpocket tend to fail.

In previous versions of Firefox, when I opened a huge number of tabs, the CPU would max out even after waiting several hours.

I installed Peter Simonyi's addon which opens tabs slowly and it works, but this addon is not actively monitored by Firefox.

When the latest version of Firefox came out, I was really happy because the 100% CPU problem went away, but to my dismay most of the getpocket articles failed to load.

I have 4 tabs on my home page. 2 of them open normally, 2 do not. If I click on the address bar of one of the tabs that does not load, a list of recent URLs drops down, with the URL of the tab on top. At the end of the URL, is the work "Visit". If I click on Visit, the URL loads. The other 2 tabs load normally. I am on Windows 8.1 and have the latest Firefox version. I believe this just started to happen after I upgraded. I have tried to use the troubleshoot Restart with add-ons disabled. Did not solve the problem.

Thanks,
