The subject line says it, really: though "Restore previous session" is still ticked in Options, a reboot presented me with just my homepage tabs. Is this, as I hope, an inadvertent bug or a design decision?

I'm using a desktop PC running Windows 7. Many thanks.

I lost a session with many tabs.

Unfortunately "Restore previous session" was not available. I found a upgrade.jsonlz4 file with a date and time which would have the tabs on it. The size is larger than other ones so I figured this was the best option. I coppied this and pasted it into profiles. Renamed it sessionstore.jsonlz4... Renamed the sessionstore that was in there already to sessionstoreOLD Restarted firefox and when I click on restore previous session button I just get 2 blank tabs.

I then tried the other files which are significantly smaller but still no dice.

I tried the jefferson scrounger and it just gets stuck on "processing"

Any help would be much appreciated.

Please see screenshot of the files I had available to me and saved to a usb.

With Gmail open in Firefox browser, when I start typing the name of the addressee in the TO field, many addressees will not autocomplete, even though they are properly saved in my Gmail contacts list. I looked for common solution for this ... and found: use different browser. I did, and MS Edge works just fine. Is there a setting in Firefox that will fix this?

To all Firefox gurus:

RE: Widevine Content Decryption Module 4.10.2209.1

Have Firefox 78.10.0esr (64-bit) with PLug-in Widevine Content Decryption Module 4.10.2209.1

Have (Late-2012) Mac Mini with Mac OSX 10.9.5 (A MUST HAVE, due to it being the last version that is compatible with Nikon and other software no longer supported)

So, upgrading Mac Operating System is not an option.

And, upgrading Firefox does not seem to be an option, because 78.10.0esr is the last compatible version with the Mac 10.9.5 operating system.

The issue I am having is when I go to read the online edition of the newspaper. a long thin yellow bar appears at the top of the screen with "The Widevine Cdm has crashed. (Learn More)" and further down on the page it shows, "Video Player Error Sorry, there has been a technical error with this video stream." with an error code that relates to "Digital Rights Management" . . . It is checked in Preferences > General.

So, not sure what the problem is.

This has occurred within the past two weeks ONLY.

Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Thank you, in advance.

I had to do a factory reset of my computer a few months ago and reinstall Firefox. I have never found the bookmark folders that I used when I first got Firefox 88. Folders do not show up when I open the library, select bookmarks and manage bookmarks. Now I put all new ones in bookmark toolbar and they are a long list that is difficult to use. Is there a simple way to find and create folders so I can organize the bookmarks in toolbar and put them in folders?

I could not understand the information in the answers to similar questions. I need simple directions that are not too technical for someone without sophisticated computer skills. Thanks in advance.

In my question above, I have taken out 3 sentences but it still says I have too many characters. At first it said I had 11 more than the 255 limit; after deleting all that, it says I have 40 more. It won't make sense if I take out any more.

Fortunately, this situation is not happening across all websites, but on those that it does, I haven't been able to find a solution, yet.

As the title suggests, I copy a piece of text/paragraph from said website, and when I paste it in a word processor such as Pages or Text Edit (both Mac apps), the text is aligned to the left. The goal is to be able to paste said text with a justified alignment (predefined on the paragraph of the open document). It used to work flawlessly up until two months ago.

I'm don't know if some Firefox update caused this or maybe some extension might be interfering (I have checked the installed extensions and none of them appear to be the cause, but maybe it is the case). Either way, I've checked the same websites on Chrome and this issue is not happening there, so clearly it's browser related.

Any guidance, tips or help is very appreciated. Thank you.
