I got a new computer so I created an acct and set all my open tabs and history to sync. It wasn't intuitive to my not techie brain, but found out how to open all the tabs on the new computer. However, they don't open in the same order (makes it almost useless when you have a lot of tabs), and the tabs don't have their associated history.

Is there some way to have Firefox open tabs and history in the same state on the new device?

Hello -

Is there a way to see all History (browsing and anything else you accessed via FF) since it was last cleared?

When I click on 'History -> Manage' I get a window called Library and can only see Today, Yesterday and Last 7 Days. Is that it? I am certainly no computer expert-- still using Win 7 which does everything I need. But I am going on my observations; and from the last 30 min reading people's issues wth accessing history, it seems that Firefox has gone backweards in this area. As there used to be a way to access 'All History'

Chrome has an excellent History setup - it retains all history since it was last cleared, and which I have often used to my great delight. Could go back many months.

Can FF only access the last 7 days of History?

Thanks

PS, I tried clicking on Share Data for this post but it says it cannot access it. Then I tried clicking on the link that it suggested but I went to it and not only lost all my typing (this is the second attempt) but I don't have a fault as that page may suggest. My FF, which is the lastest one, seems to be working normally, it's just the limited History I have an issue with. And the reason for this Post. Thanks

Accidentally added a misspelling to the Firefox dictionary. Thought it would be easy to locate and edit the dictionary.

Enabled 'show hidden files.'

On XYplorer, and Windows File Explorer can find not a single trace of 'persdict.dat' in my profiles folder.

It would be really helpful if you could advise what the next step would be. Thanks.

Hello, ever since we moved endpoints from Firefox ESR 91.13 to 102.3, it has become impossible to play any media with Firefox.

No video will play in youtube, for instance (it just loads endlessly as if it would start, but it doesn't).

Can't use radio websites either. Anything with a "play" button (video or sound) does nothing.

This has been tested with a clean profile, a clean install, after allowing autoplay in the settings.

Is there any info on what exactly changed between ESR 91 and 102 that might explain this ? There has been no system change, If I reinstall 91 instead it works again as usual.

No issues anywhere else on the endpoints (Edge, Windows), this is on Windows 10 if it makes any difference.

Tanks for any help on this.

So i will describe exactly what ive done up until now.

Earlier today i logged into gitlab.com a website that has remote servers to remove a candidate from our server The reason this is relevant i think is i havent logged into this place for a good month or two, roughly 10-20 seconds afterwards, every tab in my entire firefox browser got the PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR error, No matter which website i go to, even google, my email, youtube, anything and everything gives me the error, So the troubleshooting steps i have done from then - Cleared cache and cookies several times - Restarted both PC and router & manually reconnected the cables on both ends - I did the Cmd Command winsock reset & restarted the PC - Full reinstall of firefox in its entirety - Disabled entire kaspersky firewall & additional security - Disabled windows defender firewall aswell - Disabled VPN services on my system and within the browser

After trying all these things i gave up on firefox and decided to download chrome and try this, chrome worked!, And then i imported my bookmarks and such ( i work from home so thats vital), And after importing them i began jumping through sites to make sure everything was working and it was, then i began logging into my pages again like email, google , youtube, work stuff etc, and eventually the gitlab account aswell.. and then, another 10 seconds late it immediately stopped working on google chrome, all tabs claim to have no internet and stick me with the ERR CONNECTION CLOSED error, Once again i preformed the same troubleshooting steps but nothing came of it. So both firefox and chrome are bricked and refuse to work.

Im currently using microsoft edge to write this and im afraid to touch anything here or login to anything incase it also breaks.

Shortly after chrome gave up the game, i tried to do a full reinstall of firefox, again did not work, i then tried to do a reinstall of chrome, and the chrome installer now claimed i had no internet, whilst i was on call in discord and using other programs with internet. so chrome refused to install, I then managed to install the chrome 'standalone' which doesnt require internet and it worked, i did not import anything this time and just browsed around, and shortly after, once again, without logging into anything, it gives me the same error, and now even if i reinstall the standalone chrome, it refuses to work, once its broke its broke for good.

Im completely at a loss here i feel like ive been hacked or something because it works then suddenly its broke forever, ive been reading up that it may be something on my PC cutting the connection to everything but i really am clueless on what it could be, this was the first time i used my PC today, i didnt have any driver or windows updates, if anyone can provide literally any context or help here it would be greatly appreciated, im not one to make support tickets because i usually research until i fix it, but im out of options

Thank you!

This has started to day, I'm running it on Windows 11 and if I minimize a windows sometimes I am unable to reopen from the taskbar, I would see the browser window flash for 1 second and then a window error bell sound will play, but there is no error message. The only way I can get back that window is to right click the icon in the taskbar and click Restore on the rightclick pane. I would have to do this everytime this happens.

I don't know what caused this, it was fine most of the day and just started late afternoon. Anyone have a clue to the root of this issue and what's your advice?

On my Toshiba laptop, but not on my desktop, when I reboot and click on any bookmark or on any tab to search for anything it just keeps trying to access it forever. If I close Firefox and start again, it says Firefox is running and needs to close and do I want to close it - Yes but does it again and again. Sometimes waiting awhile, it eventually works.

3 days ago I closed my main Firefox Windowby accident, while other windows were open. To restore, I just used the normal "recently closed windows" option and reopened my windows. Immediatly, all my tabs that were assigned to "Containers" were duplicated, and I lost the "Simple Tab Groups" order. For each tab on a container, a second was created without an assigned container. Fine, i thought, just closed 130 tabs that were unassigned, and moved them to the right Groups again. Next day, i open firefox, same thing. All tabs duplicated (but now on the proper groups). Closed 130 duplicated tabs and moved on. But I can't spend 5 minutes each day doing it! Testing more, I realized that every time I close and reopen Firefox, all the tabs assigned to a Container get a copy. If i close and reopen firefox 10 times, i will get 10 copies of all tabs, with no assigned containers to them, ending up with 1300 unnecessary tabs.

I just cant figure out how to fix it. Any advice?

I've had this problem for a couple of years already. Not with other browsers and, with the Internet Download Manager extension, I'm usually able to download multimedia content in FF. (That's been my workaround.)

For example, when loading this humble URL ... https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/transcoded/d/d8/Plattenknistern_record.ogg/Plattenknistern_record.ogg.mp3 ... if I have autoplay enabled, it'll crash right away ("Your tab just crashed"), without autoplay, it'll crash as soon as I hit play. No report gets created under about:crashes.

No difference if I create a new user profile and disable add-ons. Disabling hardware acceleration doesn't help either. I can't do without most of my settings and add-ons, so refreshing FF is not an option. I'd sooner try a new install (and then import my profile and reinstall add-ons), but that's laborious, not guaranteed to solve the problem, and I figure that there ought to be some way to diagnose a crash in such straightforward circumstances? Telling the JS debugger to pause on exceptions seems to be no help.

Twitter videos used to work, albeit without audio, so long as I didn't pause and then resume playback. Lately, after upgrading from FF 104 to 105 (or possibly through a change on Twitter's end), I get "the media could not be played."

I have set the "Homepage and new windows" and "New tabs" option to Tabliss

However when launching Firefox, it starts in google.com and when I checked the "Homepage and new windows" option it was reset to google.com without me touching it.

I tried using custom URLs and put in "moz-extension://something-something/index.html" but it still didn't work and resets to google.com when relaunching Firefox.

I also tried putting other URLs such as YouTube it still put me into google.com when relaunched and resets it again.

It only works when I open a new tab.

How do I make Tabliss (or anything else) as my homepage when I launch Firefox?
