No tabs will open except the support or the three lines. 45 tabs open and none accessible. DO I just have to change to Safari and erase everything made by mozilla? What is the other name for the three lines? Do we really need the three lines, @ is easier to refer to, or * or £ or a thousand other characters all unused on all our keyboards. How should I create the three lines symbol? Has this been chosen so that no one can even talk about the three lines in a similar way that androod has the wank symbol for non-gay access to the root directory?

Running FF (v70.0 64bit) on a MacBook Pro (MacBook Pro 13-inch, Late 2011) running Yosemite. I've experienced the browser display dropping the character y as shown in the attached screen captures from https://www.realestatewebtrainer.com/bookrecommendations.htm

Same phenomena has also happened on other sites, as well as dropping the y from pull-down selections in Ninja Forms. Appreciate any feedback you can offer.

I use a mac mini.

Firefox updated sometime today. Now it won't connect to Amazon - Really? I sell on Amazon. I need to work. I cannot take 2 hours to fix Firefox and I am not very well versed in trouble shooting.

It doesn't connect when I type in the address bar It doesn't connect from my bookmarks It doesn't connect when I google Amazon and try that link It doesn't connect with or without www.

If I don't find an answer that I can use quickly and easily, I will be going to Safari. I'm used to Firefox. It has been my go to for 15 years. This is ridiculous.

I kept trying to select Restore Previous Session but Firefox option is grey and unable to access. I made a copy of the sessionstore-backups folder, then closed firefox, replaced the new sessionstore-backups folder, then restarted firefox and problem continued to persist. I noticed this morning when I started up Firefox that the amount of windows I normally have open for session restore doubled and where all blank. Can anyone help me restore previous session?

After an auto upgrade, the Firefox 70.0b5 was all grayed out, nothing worked when I started it. So I did a lot of research and re-started my computer. Now the Firefox works, but my previous sessions/tabs still not restored. I went to all history etc but it did not have all my tabs. I went to about:profiles and the local directory seems to be empty but the root directory has files. In the root directory, I looked into sessionstore, previous.js etc folders but there was just a whole lot of letters. I am not a technical person and don't know much about computers. How do I restore the previous session tabs that were on my screen before the upgrade? It's quite urgent and I appreciate your assistance as soon as practicable. Thank you so much!

Secure Connection Failed

error message: An error occurred during a connection to ###.###.#.##. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

The url I am attempting to connect to is my Pandora for Business account. In the Pandora instructions, they state that when this error message appears, I should create an exception, which I have done. However, Firefox still blocks the connection and I have been unable to find a workaround to gain access and manage my playlist/account. Any ideas?

I always leave form autofill settings off. Yet in the last several Firefox versions, email addresses pop up as suggestions when I use login forms. I read the help articles. I triple-checked settings. Different login forms suggest various addresses (I have many), which is also odd.

I read that this might be caused by extension conflicts. Is there a list? I wanted to know if this is a known issue before I try to troubleshoot it.

Thank you.

PS: I'm pretty unhappy that My Firefox Account exposes my email address username in this forum. I changed it in Firefox Accounts, but here it still shows. Since this forum is world readable and I can't delete my message, I'm going to delete my account.

Please moderator delete this question for me.

Hi! Regarding the popup-windows "New Bookmark" and "Edit This Bookmark": a. the popup windows are far too small!! Impossible to drag them large to have bigger overvie finding bookfolders. b. the popup windows do not have a search function at all. c. the mini-display of the website to be bookmarked inside these popup-windows is absolutely a non-necessary feature: it only takes space away which could be used for other more useful feature like a., b. Is there a way to change the popup-window somewhere in the deeper FF settings??? thanks & best

Hi!

another qiuestion:

How to open the Bookmark Library in several tabs or windows, each with another folder view? It open only in ONE Library window/tab, and when you want to copy or move bookmarks, it is very unpractical to each time scroll down the left sidebar to find the foldersa and subfolders.

Enhancements: 1. ALLOW LIBRARY TO OPEN IN AS MANY TABS AND WINDOWS AS YOU LIKE 2. MAKE THAT THE SEARCH LIBRARY FIELD ALSO INCLUDES FOLDERS IN SEARCH RESULT LIST 3. MAKE THE LIBRARY APPEARING AND BEHAVING LIKE MAC FINDER WINDOWS !

thanx !

Hi everyone, experiencing a problem with firefox on my Macbook. When I try and drag & drop an image from file to an online uploader, it crashes my entire OS.

The file shrinks down to thumbnail size when hovering over the drag & drop space (as normal) but then gets stuck at that point. Then, whenever I try to click on anything at all (start-up menu, a different program) the thumbnail just appears under my cursor, I cannot click away and the whole OS becomes unresponsive. My only out as far as I can see is a hard reset.

Has anyone else experienced this problem and how do I fix it? Thanks in advance for any input.

EDIT: the problem is also present when uploading conventionally. The file uploads but then my cursor is stuck in a form of "force select" - for example if I move it over another program it'll just then drag that program around with it and refuse to drop it, thus screwing up my entire OS. I even managed to CMD+Q quit out of Firefox this time, but once initiated the problem doesn't disappear.

In past versions, if I wanted to delete a cookie, I could open that area of settings and do it quickly. Now, since cookies are combined with site data, I have to wait for the calculation of stored data to complete before I can click on Manage and edit my cookies. That can take five minutes (or longer). I don't mind waiting a little, like for clearing the cache (although on old versions, that calculation could take 15 minutes), but it makes no sense to have to wait at all just to clean out some cookies. Those should be readily available like they used to be. Please take cookies out of site data like they used to be.

For months now my firefox is quitting at least once a day and for no apparent reason. Then when i restart it (and/or restore it), the settings of firefox are back to a random one: like for instance the "home setting" sets to yahoo, whereas I always change it back to ecosia.

I tried to update firefox, to restart with "restart with add-ons disabled", to update my OS, etc etc.

Thank you for your help!

Here is a gallery where the problem occurs: http://www.cyclingnews.com/features/bespoked-uk-handmade-bicycle-show-gallery/ The links to the homepage from the logo stopped working in Firefox 18-24 months ago. It appears that there is an incompatibility between the cyclingnews website and the Mozilla browser. Perhaps the fix has to be made on the cyclingnews end, I don't know. The cyclingnews website is fully functional with Google Chrome, but I prefer to use Firefox to support a smaller company and for privacy.

Up until 66.0.1 I could open an excel or word document from the intranet home page that I created. You click on the link and a dialog box would pop up asking if you wanted to open the file or save the file. Now, when you click on the same link, it only gives you the option to save the file. I don't need to save it, it's already saved. I need to open it and work on it. How can I get 66.0.1 to function in the same way as older versions of firefox so that I can open the aforementioned office files? Thanks. Wayne
