Hi folks,

Forced to update (expected) and 102 ran like two flat tires and no spare whil eI had no issues with 91. MANY hours of searching got me reasonably successful in acceptable performance. But two problems, one which could easily be a bug:

1. I can find no way including in about:config to enable lazy tab loading. In other words, open a group but not load each tab until it is clicked on.

Where did that go?

2. This one is more unique. I have a desktop install of ESR and a portable ESR install on a thumb drive. For MANY years I backed up bookmarks on my desktop and restored them to FF on my thumb drive. Now, after I shut down the portable (which takes a very long time) there are multiple bookmarks. Html files that seem to merge on shutdown. Problem is, on the thumb drive this is not completed before FF shutdown and the processes closed. Results in damaged bookmark files and a crash EVERY time.

IF I drag the copy of FF ESR portable to my desktop and perform the same procedure, no problems. So somehow on a USB 3 thumb drive the process of merging bookmarks. Html files is too slow and will cause a crash consistently.

Any suggestions or should I file a bug report?

Woke up this morning, opened up Firefox and the Trolls have been busy rearranging things during the night. My profile manager disappeared, but I was able to fix that. Now my tabs are out of place and I cannot find what to do to put the Tabs back on bottom, "The way they Should be". Help, please.

Anne,

Also, I am not real computer literate, so draw pictures if necessary.

Thank you.

My Firefox has intermittently (but many times a day) been been slow loading, often simply refusing to load at all. Clicking a link to open in a new tab often opens the tab but the tab says "New Tab" with an oscillating dot on the left. After a few minutes the dot stops and nothing displays. Often clicking something in Google News the new tab says "Opening " and then the Google URL. The page sometimes displays after a couple of minutes but sometimes never does.

I've disabled all my plugins except LastPass, but that doesn't help. My IT Support company hasn't been able to help. I tweeted Firefox and they suggested I DM them. I've done that, even sending a couple of illustrative screen videos. But no oikne has ever responded to my Twitter DM.

Is there any way to talk to a live person and share my screen to get some help?

If not, I'll need to abandon Firefox as my default browser after many, many years. It's become a real productivity-killer.

I've just rebooted and I've lost two windows with thirty tabs, or something.

When I started Firefox, there's nothing in the Recently Closed [Tabs, Windows]

Reading online, I see that Firefox should be writing some files to the sessionstore-backup directory, like these:

recovery.jsonlz4: the windows and tabs in your currently live Firefox session (or, if Firefox crashed at the last shutdown and is still closed, your last session) recovery.baklz4: a backup copy of recovery.jsonlz4 previous.jsonlz4: the windows and tabs in your last Firefox session upgrade.jsonlz4-build_id: the windows and tabs in the Firefox session that was live at the time of your last update

, but I only find recovery.jsonlz4 and recovery.baklz4 and both are tracking current time, which means they are getting data from the currently opened Firefox.

These are the only files I find in this directory.

Where are the other files supposed to have gone?

How to BLOCK systemtimezone detection in Firefox? Can this be done with firefox or with the operatingsystem itself? After all i know for a fact that the bromite android browser has this feature and it works. I noticed that disabling javascript blocks systemtimedetection, but it also basically renders the browsers useless for my purposes.. are there specific javascript config settings regarding systemtimezone detection? I really feel that when a website spys on my systemtimezone this is a breach of privacy as this goes beyond the browsers im using to view the website but instead directly access information about my system, im not ok with that... Using a virtualmachine just to fake systemtimezone cannot be the solution, this is ridiculous.

By the way, i hope Mozilla won't let down support for Manivest v2 ever, there is a chance firefox will gain a boost in users after google pushing Manivest v3 that hard... making adblock useless, what a shame.

Hi,

I'm struggling with how to sort my many bookmarks. Not sure if a bookmark should be in a sub-directory and/or I add multiple tags. I've thought of adding them to generalized directories and then adding as many tags as needed, but am not able to search/select multiple tags in the Library window. Any pointers on what is a good way to do this?

I have things like Coding, Learning, Tools. But then also Git, PHP, Linux. I can't figure out how to sort all these :( Thanks for any input you may have.

Hi, I am using Ubuntu 20.04LTS and Firefox 104.

My Firefox cleans up on every shutdown. Therefore I have to enter my primary password after every fresh startup, when I open a page that needs a stored password the first time.

I cannot exactly remember since which version, but for like the past 1 or 2 months there is a strange behavior. - Firefox Startup - I open my daily tabs - it shows me 4 Primary Password dialogues (basically 4 Tabs need the credentials)

in the past: - Firefox Startup - I open my daily tabs - it showed only 1 Primary Password dialogue

When I open Firefox and only open 1Tab with a stored credential, the dialogue shows only once, i enter my primary password and from there I can open my daily tabs without a further dialogue.

I think this is an unwanted behavior and needs to be rolled back.

I have been using Firefox for accessing my desktop online banking for some years. In the last few days, the images on the part of the logon page that requires card and security details are stretched laterally, which prevents use. The text seems normal. See attached screenshot.

I can shrink the image to fit my screen, but I have not entered any details. The bank has checked their end and cannot find anything wrong: suggested that I switch browser - which worked.

I prefer to continue with Firefox, so wish to find a fix. Have I got some malware on-board, or is it an update issue?

I use Norton for security, and I've done a full sweep having updated. Nothing found. I use CCleaner very regularly - nothing found after checking for updates.

What do I need to do now, please?

After Firefox crashed today I restarted it and I got a session and tabs that I last used over a month ago, and none of the simple fixes worked. But not to worry, I thought, because important folders (including Firefox's Profiles folder) get backed up automatically every night, and just yesterday I reset my "homepage" to include all the currently open tabs. So I thought restoring my session and recovering my open tabs would be a simple matter of replacing current files with backed-up versions of those files. But I can't figure out which files to use or if that strategy is even possible. For example, some of the support materials state that recovery.jsonlz4 in the sessionstore-backups folder gets updated continuously with session and tabs information, but on my system that file abruptly stopped being updated in July. Similarly, previous.jsonlz4 and upgrade.jsonlz4-*** stopped being updated in May. (FYI, sessionstore.jsonlz4 gets created when I close Firefox, just like it's supposed to, but I don't have any backed-up versions of it because it only exists when Firefox is closed.) And the tabs currently listed in the "homepage" are also from a month ago, and I can't figure out what file those tabs are stored in. Help!
