I use Pinterest quite a bit and somehow a great deal of pins have disappeared.

This happened once before when I was using Chrome, and I was able to go digging into my cached files and find the cached versions of the thumbnails of my Pins, so I could somewhat recreate them based on that.

I'm not sure how to go about that with Firefox. Would any information (specifically images) be stored from a previous version of a webpage?

Thank you!

I've enabled 'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed' to delete the cookies and site data when I close Firefox, but I would like to add some exceptions (mostly mail site). Every time I add the exception through Manage Exceptions... button and then I close Firefox, when I restart Firefox, the exception is gone. Is this expected? I don't think so. If so, it's not clear in the UI, as the button is just next to the mentioned checkbox.

Version: Firefox 103.0 (64-bit) SO: macOS Monterey 12.5

I was having trouble switching and logging out of Twitter so I thought I could just clear site cookies to make it work, but I weirdly discovered "about:preferences -> Manage Data -> Remove Selected / Remove All Shown" has no effect. i.e. after clearing, when I open up manage data again, they are still there. I did not try "Clear Data" above it because I was afraid of clearing out all my logins.

I reinstalled my computer several weeks ago and current profile was directly copied from my last machine, so this might be a possible cause? Could someone be so kind to help me get remove cookies and hopefully twitter back to work? Thank you in advance.

Ubuntu 22.04.3 LTS Firefox 123.0 (64-bit)

The browser deletes cookies when closed. Every time I log in, I need to re-enter passwords (they are saved) on all sites, this is certainly tiring. I read about a similar problem from other users, they had the “Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed” setting enabled, but I didn’t.

almost all are Facebook storage. I'm feeling a little reluctant to delete all site data. If I clear all cookies and site data will that fix the issue? will the issue re-occur?

For the past few days, Firefox has been freezing up. By playing around with it, I've found that it's still functioning, but it ceases to update visually. I'm not having the same issues with any other program on my PC, I don't see the icon to update Firefox, and I've restarted my PC a few times along the way.

When this happens, it's not just website contents that freeze, but Firefox's UI as well. Hovering a tab doesn't highlight it. Clicking the hamburger doesn't appear to open the menu. Etc...

If I have a video playing when this happens, I will continue to hear it, but the frame the video is on stays in place.

If I click on another open tab, it will still show me the tab it visually froze on, but if I end Firefox with Windows Task Manager & reopen it, the session saves the tab switch, so it's still taking mouse inputs. I've been able to do similar with keyboard inputs by clicking on the address bar and entering a new URL. I don't see anything as I type it, but after using Task Manager to close and reopen Firefox, the site I entered is there.

I can switch between open Firefox windows when this happens without issue, even on the same monitor, and if I pull up something else in front of Firefox and then switch to Firefox it will still display what was last visible in that Firefox window while the bug is occurring.

I have tried disabling add-ons, and actually found that disabling some of them made it happen *more* frequently, not less. Privacy Badger, Auto Tab Discard, & Ad Nauseum specifically. Switching from Ad Nauseum to AdBlock Plus or uBlock Origin neither increases nor decreases the frequency. My other add-ons, like Duplicate Tabs Closer, haven't had any effects on frequency that I can see. With all of my Add-ons disabled, Task Manager shows double the number of Firefox processes.

I tried to clear my history, but I can only select my last 1 hour of history, as clicking on the dropdown box to select another duration will cause the problem to occur & I can't see the other options in the box to select a longer option. The dropdown to select a topic for this question has the same issue.

These are some actions that risk causing the bug to start, but aren't 100% reproducible, and the list is not exhaustive:

  • Trying to click & drag to pull a tab into becoming its own window or to move the tab into another window. (Firefox does not save this movement if it causes the bug, so closing and reopening it will keep the tab in the window it was already in.) This seems to work fine for some sites, but specifically tends to break if it's a YouTube tab.
  • Mid-clicking to open a link in a new tab, if done on several links in a row
  • Clicking on a UI element, like the hamburger button
  • Right clicking on an image and selecting "copy"
  • Right clicking within Firefox
  • Opening Firefox

I have not seen the bug occur at any time that I was not actively providing some input to the Firefox program.
