For the past two months, every time I click on my Outlook bookmark to get my emails, it never works the first time. You must always click a first time, then a second time. Hint: it's only with Outlook. All the other bookmarks work well.

Hi all,

does anybody know how to go straight to downloads by using the following link?

chrome://browser/content/places/places.xhtml

By default it opens all bookmarks. Using about:downloads is no option because of the limited functionality.

Every help is welcome!

As the subject says, my print dialog shows on the wrong monitor. Usually with other apps you can bring the program to the correct monitor and close it there then it opens there as well. I move FF around from time to time but my main monitor gets the most use. To test this weird issue, I moved FF to the second monitor and tried printing there, the dialog shows up on my main LOL. What causes the print dialog to show up on the wrong screen, or even why does it always choose another screen other than the one FF is being displayed on? Is there a setting or option to correct this? The reason this is problematic is I don't always turn on the second on, so if i want to print a receipt or something I have to turn on the second monitor(which for me takes a bit, first the main blanks out then second turns on then first "catches up"). I hope someone can point me in the right direction.

Firefox was hanging up. I got frustrated and I ended the session using task manager. On restart my windows came back, but the tabs were missing the page information. I ended the firefox session again, and did a restart of windows for good measure, hoping to get everything restored.

Then, when windows restarted, I restarted firefox, and I was presented two options - SAFE MODE, or REFRESH. I did SAFE MODE. Things looked ok, so I ended that session, and tried restarting again, hoping to restart normally, without SAFE MODE on. I got the same two options again - SAFE MODE or REFRESH. So, I thought REFRESH would get me back to my prior session. Nope. That reloaded a bunch of things, like bookmarks, etc. and gave me a new session.

So, I looked under the three line menu. No ability to RESTORE PREVIOUS SESSION!

I also looked in my profile as found in ABOUT:SUPPORT - PROFILE FOLDER, and in my SESSIONSTORE-BACKUPS folder in my profile folder my RECOVERY.baklz4, and my RECOVERY.jsonlz4 have todays date as DATE MODIFIED, but only are 33kb each - way to small for the hundreds of tabs I had open in multiple windows - I believe.

So, do I have any other recovery session folders available that I might be able to use?

For years, the dark theme I used would apply to all pages, including about:newtab and about:home. About a month ago, this stopped happening, and regardless of choosing a theme that turns the background of the about:home page dark, it reverts to a white background the next time the browser is started.

I also use an add-on called Dark Reader, which gives me some control over the background of most websites. This extension is where the information that the about:home page is "protected by browser". I have not tried disabling Dark Reader, yet.

On the Firefox Options page, under the Home tab, under New Windows and Tabs, the options for "New tabs" include only two (2) choices: Firefox Home (default), or Blank Page. The dark background works (i.e., sticks, holds, stays) on the blank page, but does not work for the Firefox Home (default), which is what I have chosen and prefer. I choose only Top Sites on the Firefox Home Content settings, which are displayed below the "New tabs" settings described above.

Any help in restoring the dark (or consistent theme color) to the Firefox Home or about:home page will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
