I use the Firefox browser as my password manager for saved sites. After my team viewer failed I downloaded the browser on this laptop to retrieve the sites and login but when I try to sync nothing happens? I tried History but don't see my past sites.

If the sync doesn't bring up my saved information what is the point?

I'm so unhappy now I don't know where to begin.

I was having trouble loading a website (lowes.com), continually getting an "access denied" error message. It occurred to me that I'd read somewhere that if you told Firefox to "forget this site," it might solve the "access denied" problem. I didn't remember how to do this, though, so I searched online and found a site that said that adding the "Remove" button to the Toolbar and clicking it would solve the problem. I dutifully added the "Remove" button, then, before clicking it, I triple-checked that the "Forget the last Five minutes" was selected and not any longer period of time. After all, I didn't want to lose everything!

Well, I did.

I had literally hundreds of tabs that I was working on open — they're all gone. All of my history — years worth — is missing. More things may have been deleted, but, to be honest, I'm afraid to check.

What did I do wrong? Or is the "Remove" button buggy?

And while I believe that everything that's missing now is irretrievably lost, if anyone has a hack to recover anything, I would be so, so grateful if you'd let me know.

Thanks in advance.

P.S. I wrote this post up once, hit "Submit," then, after an interminable period of time, the screen went to a blank page. My original post has never appeared. Is there perhaps something wrong with my Firefox (which has been perfectly fine up until now)?

Is anyone out there familiar with the "Mile Wide Back" addon? It allow you to go to the previous web site page or the next page with a left/right mouse click on the left page border. I'm hoping someone who knows it's history will have a workaround for a problem it has. Apparently, the developer is no longer available.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/milewideback-webext/?utm_content=addons-manager-reviews-link&utm_medium=firefox-browser&utm_source=firefox-browser

I've been using it for years. It was modified for quantum, but there is a problem. One of it's functions is to scroll thru tabs with a mouse wheel turn. I wouldn't want that feature even if it did work right, but it's broken.

One lone click of the mouse wheel on the left page border and it scrolls thru 6 tabs. Two clicks, 12+ tabs, etc. There's no option to disable that feature.

However, in it's pre-quantum version, there were about:config commands that could modify it's behavior.

I have another handy app, Volume2. You can set it up to change volume with a mouse wheel turn while touching the left border of any window. Up until recently, this feature superseded the Mile Wide Back function, but lately it stopped helping.

Since neither the apps have changed in over a year, I believe the change in behavior is due to Firefox 88,which was released around the same time this started happening.

As the subject says. I can still search for the firefox app and open it that way or I can start it from the START page that comes up when I hit the windows key on the keyboard. But I am not allowed to drag and drop it onto the taskbar as it says it's already there. It's sorta there I guess because FF is open right now while I type this and this open tab is indicated on the taskbar. If I were to close the FF window there would be no FF logo on the taskbar.

Right clicking the firefox app in the start list that comes up when I left click on the windows icon in the lower left or hit the windows key on my keypad gives me options to unpin FF from the start page or unpin it from the taskbar. I don't want to do that.

I did something to mess this up and I can't fix it. I want the FF logo back on my taskbar so when I power up the machine I can click on the logo in the taskbar to get to the browser with all my previously open tabs back.

The latest Windows 10 a Lenovo yoga laptop if it matters.

Thanks

I had a crash on firefox, I easily fix lost sessions, when I got updates or crash that lose my active session.

When I try to retrieve my sessions by copying recovery.baklz4 or recovery.jsonlz4 both of them does not work. When clicking on restore previous session, firefox rezzes a few seconds, and then the restore session tab stays blank.

I tried: https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html but the website does not succesfully recovers my firefox session and the tab just crashes, I did manage to convert it to a JSON file.

I did some work on the JSON file myself, through regex and jq tool. I extracted the urls from it. I scrapped my json to make it lighter (I think the problem is from the size of my session), I scrapped the "image", "scp", json objects, trimming the size of the file, it's size was divided by almost 20.

Is there a way to recreate a sane jsonzl4 file? I have the data.

What seems weird is that backups from a few weeks is only around 20MB and by adding a few tabs, it went from 20MB to 80-90MB it's freaking huge.

Is there a way to fix this? recreate a json file and then encrypt it to jsonzl4? What can I scrape safely from my session?

I have been trying to fix this for hours, please help!

Только в браузер FireFox происходят проблемы с изменениями шрифтов при отображении информации и отображением картинок. Проблема не статична, а динамична (картинка одна и та же может нормально отобразится а может быт в артефактах). в Chrome и Opera таких проблем нет. OS Windows переустановил, браузер поставил заново - проблема осталась.

Hello,

Ever since I used 'Refresh' to solve a problem, I now have to sign into all my regular sites, like YouTube, FaceBook and especially Twitter, where I receive a warning every time I sign in. (See attachment).

To clarify: before the Refresh, I could just bring up these sites and be automatically signed in. My computer remembers the sign in names and passwords, but I still have to go through the process, and with Twitter, I'm getting these warnings, which has caused that site to ask for more info to verify my identity.

So: why am I coming up as a 'new user' every time I want to go to sites I've been going to for years?

Thank you,

John

I really miss the ability to have a "Save As" choice when i download pdf's or pictures from the web I'm always on the latest version of Firefox but only gets 'Open', Open with' and 'Save'...

Often the downloaded files gets lost in the wrong folder or hide itself with a crazy name that 'the web page' has given it.

AS both Google Chrome and Windows Edge offers that possibility and has for long, please include that feature in the next update...??

Thank You

I'm honestly now sure how best to explain this because it's kind of weird, but I will try my best. Basically, Firefox thinks there's two windows open, when really there is only one. When I right click on the Firefox logo in my Dock (I'm on Mac), it tells me I have two windows open, the main window I use and then a second "What's new with Firefox" window (see screenshot). This is the "invisible" window. I have tried many things to get Firefox to realize that window doesn't exist. I've quit Firefox many times, tried to get my Mac to display all windows (it says there are no open windows when I close out of my main window), restarted my Mac, cleared cache and cookies, removed from Dock, etc. At this point, I don't know what's left to do other than remove Firefox entirely and re-install it and I would hate to do that. I hope I've provided enough detail to get the gist of the issue. If you need any more info, I'm happy to provide it! Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello. Had installed Mozilla awhile back, then uninstalled it but could not remember why. After re-installing, the issue has come back and think it best to ask. I use Free Download Manager and the add-on is active and downloads OK. Problem comes when handling streaming videos. When an object I intend to download has a download button, FDM automatically picks and handles the download; however, when I right-click a streaming video and "Save Video As", Mozilla does not pick the download via FDM but switches to the traditional download method. Interestingly, same scenario in Chrome and Edge, the "save video as" via FDM works picks perfectly. Please help. Thanks
