I lost all my tabs recently & wanted to restore them. The advice via Help topic was to click the 3 horizontal lines, click history & then click "restore previous session" However I do not have that selection. I have the other shown but not restore previous session. I do have the latest version of FF & am on chrome. I was able to restore my tabs one at a time, but in the future I would like the ability to easily restore the whole session. Thanks for any suggestions.

Hello,

I want to know one thing, you have added a feature that allows Firefox to generate a random strong password. That randomly generated 'strong' password has everything except a special character. How can you say the password is secure if there is no special character in that. Almost 95% of the websites don't accept a password without a special character. May be give an option in the settings to customize the suggested password like character types and character length. That would be just perfect.

Thanks

I have various versions of Dell OMSA (OpenManage Server Administrator) on about 20 servers running Windows Server 2008 and up, and all of them have stopped working with FF 94.02 (and possibly 94.01)

OMSA gets stuck in a login loop, just keeps asking for credentials. Switching to latest Chrome works, but I'd rather stick with FF.

Any ideas on what setting may have changed to create this issue?

When I try to play CNN live video in Firefox, I am prompted to choose my provider in a pop-up. When I click Spectrum I get a screen with this in the upper right hand corner - adobe-pass-2.60.0.4-8a55665.

What do I need to change or set to get the live stream to play?

FWIW - This works on Edge and Chrome.

Hello,

I have a new Cisco Webex Desk Camera that it's not working with Firefox (Flatpak on Fedora Silverblue 35).

lsusb: Bus 006 Device 004: ID 05a6:0023 Cisco Systems, Inc. Cisco Webex Desk Camera

https://mozilla.github.io/webrtc-landing/gum_test.html shows two cameras "Video Capture 4" and "Video Capture 5", none of them work, the page shows an error message: "AbortError: Starting videoinput failed".

The same website works in Chromium (also a Flatpak), which only sees "Video Capture 4 (05a6:0023)". "OBS Studio" is also able to use the camera. "Video Capture 5" is not available in Chromium and freezes the image in OBS Studio. I believe Video Capture 5 is the IR camera that is used in Windows Hello.

Would you be able to help me to get this camera supported, please?

Address book in Thunderbird left pane when composing new email is not the same as the address book shown from Tools menu. Editing the "Tools" address book does not affect the one associated with "Compose." I don't seem to be able to edit that one at all, and of course that's the one I use most. How can I fix that?

Topic: Bookmarks and Tabs I recently saved my tab sessions in several bookmarks which I named per topic - eg Bookmark name 'Groupon Tabs', which contains several tabs of Groupon pages I am interested in, to look at later. Today I saw a page which I want to save by adding it to this bookmark. But when I click on 'Groupon tabs' nothing happens - I was expecting to see the list of tabs saved, but I cannot find them. So the question is: a) how can I open eg 'Groupon' tab so I have access to all the tabs it contains b) how do I add a new tab to this bookmark Many thanks in advance.

Have Firefox blocked this and/or are there ways users can protect themselves?

"14 new types of 'XS-Leak' cross-site leak attacks against modern web browsers, including Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Safari, and Mozilla Firefox."

"These types of side-channel attacks are called 'XS-Leaks,' and allow attacks to bypass the 'same-origin' policy in web browsers so that a malicious website can steal info in the background from a trusted website where the user enters information.

"The principle of an XS-Leak is to use such side-channels available on the web to reveal sensitive information about users, such as their data in other web applications, details about their local environment, or internal networks they are connected to," explains the XS-Leaks wiki.

For example, an XS-Leak attack could help a background site siphon the email inbox contents from an active tab used for accessing webmail."

I suddenly can't watch my Youtube TV account. Every time I try to play a feed or a recording it takes a little bit to load then a message appears saying "Sorry, there was an error licensing the video." I've checked my Youtube TV account and everything checks out, restarted my browser, started browser in safe mode. I tried using Internet Explorer and it worked on that, then it worked on Firefox. I closed the Internet Explorer then the Firefox stopped working. Not sure what's going on.

I installed firefox on my new Windows 10 laptop and found that there is a persistent white bar at the top of my screen for some reason. This bar works when trying to resize or drag the window, but the typical way of clicking on firefox's banner at the top does not let me drag it anymore either. How do I get rid of this?

version 94.0.2 (64-bit) message: "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem." I can not see any of my bookmarks and I can not bookmark any page. I have: Shut down Firefox and restarted: no help uninstalled, deleted folders, and reinstalled: no help Import bookmarks from another browser: no help. That doesn't work either

What "security software" is the message talking about?

Hope you can help, because I don't want to go to another browser.

I was recently watching a Twitch livestream when I stepped away from my PC for a moment and upon returning found it sitting at the login screen. Checking eventvwr it showed a BSOD event had occurred. The only thing actively running on my PC was FireFox with a single tab for Twitch.

Level: Critical Source: Kernal-Power Event ID: 41 BugCheckCode: 307 decimal, 0x133 hex

Windows documentation lists hex 0x133 as a DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION error, and since Parameter 1 was a '0', it states, "A single DPC or ISR exceeded its time allotment. The offending component can usually be identified with a stack trace." https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/drivers/debugger/bug-check-0x133-dpc-watchdog-violation

From Windows Debugging Tools I loaded up the DMP file and ran !analyze to see the process name listed as FF (there's more information listed, just not sure it's really useful).

I checked FF `about:crashes` and it doesn't show any crash report there (presumably because the system BSOD and it did not have a chance to do anything).

Just wondering if anyone else has seen this issue and how/if they resolved it. In searching around it seemed like some folks suggested disabling hardware acceleration as there may be incompatibility issues with FF and GPU drivers. I checked under FF settings and it has "Use recommended performance settings" enabled, but there are no sub-options specific for hardware acceleration.

Some basic system specs: MoBo: Gigabyte B550 Vision D-P (BIOS F13e, latest available) CPU: AMX Ryzen 7 5800X GPU: Gigabyte GeForce 3060Ti (driver 30.0.14.7141, latest one available)

Running on FF 94.0.2 (64-bit), the latest update.

Trying to log into my investing website (Vanguard)

So.............I log into the website periodically and several weeks or more ago they 'updated' their site with a new look. So when I go to it, it has 'auto-filled' my username and password (just like it used to do) and after the site does the 'handshake' with the window I press the 'Log In' button and nothing happens. Nothing at all, it just sits there. I can launch my (outdated) Internet Explorer browser and do the same thing and it works fine and I go right in to the site. I've tried deleting cookies for the site on the Firefox browser but it doesn't change anything.

So..........ideas? Maybe a plug-in problem???

Thanks, Kent
