After Firefox did an update I opened up Firefox and ALL my history was gone. I still have my bookmarks. But I need my history for the past few weeks and months. I've tried to search and find it through using an Index.dat analyzer. But when I've tried to use it, nothing was found. I've not shut down my computer since as I want to get this back. How do I do so?

I have a 1 Gbps line from Comcast. I have a new HP desktop PC, 32 GB Ram. Speed tests from several test sites confirm good line speed. When I sign in to my email provider using Firefox, the circle on the screen goes round and round for up to 20 seconds. Not so with MS Edge. When I select an image to view using Firefox, I can watch the screen being painted. Not so with MS Edge. I have had slow responses from several other websites. Comcast has come out to my house twice to verify line speed. No problems found. Firefox appears to be the bottleneck at this point. Please help.

Thanks..........Bob

Repeating "Welcome back" popup when starting Firefox

I have just upgraded to Firefox version 123. Now whenever I start Firefox on any of my profiles, it will immediately or almost immediately display a "Welcome back" popup stating that "Here’s a quick reminder that you can keep your favorite indie browser just one click away." and provides a button to make the browser the default one. That's exceedingly annoying - I can understand that Firefox wants to notify my once in a while, but this happens at least once a day, probably more often than that. I looked over the source code and got that it is a "spotlight" feature, but I failed to find any settings that would turn it off. Any idea how can I disable this forever?

In regular web pages, I'm able to hover over an URL / picture w/ URL behind it, etc.... It shows up on the status bar at the bottom of the page (that's what it used to be called). Sometimes I can't.

Somewhere around the same time as I started noticing this, I had just upgraded to a Win11 computer. So, when I try to hover over a suspicious link, I get nothing!

Is there code these people can put in that shields them from hover? So, we can't see what we're getting into? If so, then I presume if I can't hover, don't click... Right?

TIA

If I leave a Tab to look up something, and return to the tab, Firefox reloads the entire page

I have used Firefox for 10 or 20 years and have not encountered this before.

New computer running Windows 11 Home. New Firefox install. If I am writing a message in any forum or social media site, and I need to look-up some info or the name of a place or product and I use another tab to do that, when I return to the original tab, Firefox reloads the entire page again instead of just returning me to the post that was being written without reloading the entire page. It can be a severe waste of time trying to find the post I was in the middle of once the entire tab reloads when the site is a busy place with lots of new and updated posts.

I've been through Firefox settings but did not see anything that seemed to be related to this issue, but perhaps the wording/description of the needed setting wasn't clear.

when I click on links to take me to website through my email in Thunderbird that I will get an error message that reads "we could not verify the certificate, reason=wronghost"

Do you get the error in Thunderbird or in the browser? What browser?

   But, if I copy link and copy into browser it works fine. 

Is that the same browser as the one which opens when you click the link in Thunderbird (a.k.a. your default browser)?

In answer to these questions: I use Chrome or Duck Duck Go. Duck Duck Go is my default browser. If I copy and paste link from email in browser it opens, but if I click on link in email I get the error message above. Also when you reply the email is a do not reply email so I can't reply back. Please include a good email so I can answer any questions you may have. Thank you

Please add support for progressive web apps to firefox, it is the only reason why I have stopped using firefox in preference of chrome. Without this feature, we can't use websites in split screen without the search bar area eating into the web page.

I've just been upgraded to Firefox 123.0 on my PC and it has not gone well. 1. None of my opened tabs were there. There was just 1 tabs announcing the new version.. 2. I tried to sync from my laptop and the tabs all say "New Tab". When I "Select All Tabs" and Refreshed, they just continuously circle and do not load. This is the worst upgrade I have ever seen. The browser is totally useless now, because I cant get anything to run. Can I go back to a prior version?

Choppy 4K YouTube playback

I have a very good PC (5800X3D, 7900XT, 32GB DDR4 3600), but Firefox (either the normal, canary and nightly version) can't play smoothly any 4K video (like the Borderlands trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lU_NKNZljoQ ). 1440 and lower resolutions are fine, as are 4K videos on Chrome and Edge. FWIW, my CPU during 4K playback is barely used (1-2%), and my GPU's video codec (VCE) is used by around a third. Disabling HW accel makes things better, as it still stutters but it's (barely) passable. I already tried creating a new profile, but still it's the same.

Whenever firefox has multiple tabs open and on any single tab youtube is running i find youtube to crash lag and even crack itself by audio playing with struck video. FYI the same issue is not experienced in other browsers like brave for instance . I hope you provide attention to this problem and solve this issue as soon as possible and as I mostly use firefox to browse and use its dev tools.

In older versions of Firefox, wasn't there a smaller second search bar to the right of the main search bar where you could enter your search terms and not lose them when the search results came up? I hate having to retype my search terms after getting my results.
