Long standing Firefox user.

Recently I've been having F.Fox, run in private mode, it deletes all cache upon exit. With private mode enabled I'm unable to watch anything on Netflix while this same setup in Chrome. I've gone through the entire check for the error and the only thing left is to turn on browser history.

Is this the only way to watch Netflix videos in private mode?

Dear Team Volunteer,

Loaded Firefox Ver. 93.0.3 (64Bit) onto a rebuilt machine, using Windows 10 64bit, but often upon loading it tries, often unsuccessfully, to load past pages instead of my home page. What's up?? Why is it trying to remember, a setting I have accidentally turned on? Removing previous tabs lets me start new. Did not do this on old machine, unless power or I shut down by accident.

Hello, I think there is a problem in my Firefox settings because on the same Mac, with the same fiber connection to the same server I get very different speedtest results. With Firefox I get almost 300 Mb/s, with Chrome almost 700 Mb/s. I tried on other speedtest sites with same results. I use OpenDNS and I don't use VPN. What can I check to fix this difference?

Hi all, I have problems playing certain videos with FF 96.0.3 on 2 different Win 10 computers. Youtube videos, for example, play just fine. However, videos where I just get "Please wait while the media loads" include numerous training videos at support.microsoft.com. (I think I have trouble at other sites as well.) These videos play without any problems on Chrome and Edge. The problem just occurs with FF. I have found a work around, but it's a real pain. It may give someone a good clue as to what the problem is though. If I clear cached web content and cookies EACH time before playing a video and then reload the page, it works. Sometimes just clearing the cache will do the trick. Again, this must be done before each video. Things I have tried include (but are not limited to: reboot pc(s), refresh FF, turned auto play on & off, mute & unmute FF & plug-ins, allowed cookies and pop-ups, disabled ad blocker and other extensions, loaded a Flash Emulator plug-in, confirmed audio is working fine, turned off and on hardware acceleration. I love FF, but this is driving me nuts. I do not consider myself to be terribly tech savvy, but I'm willing to keep trying for a while longer. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, John

I just noticed that on the Logins & Passwords page (about:logins), it is possible to search on logins by password. In my opinion this is a security threat, as it makes password guessing nearly trivial. Sure, an attacker would have to get their hands on your laptop/computer, but they can use this strategy to find your password without having to know your master password. I'd love to know whether A) this is intended behavior, and B) if so, if there is a way to turn this off.

I added a plugin that enabled privacy.clearonshutdown for a number of settings and I have lost my Cache and History. Is there a way for me to restore that data? I haven't restarted my computer yet.

I was looking at other options: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1290163 and apparently there is an index.dat thing I could use as well, but I can't find it. I really can't afford to lose yet more data after my last mistake.

I sign into FF. I have "Never remember History" selected in my settings, and I'm running is Strict Privacy mode, but every time I open a tab and the Pocket page appears - at the top of the page are icons of some sites I have visited in the past. How can that be disabled so History is not remembered ?

Noticed recently firefox looses windows on startup. Set to restore on bootup, but quite frequently Firefox looses a whole window, each with several panes. eg I'm lazy and will have an ebay window, each pane different, watchlist and others with items I'm looking to buy, saves me ticking all the little boxes. Another window might be nas boxes, each pane being a nas box. Then a general window fo bowsing news etc. Noticed on startup a whole window vanishes with all its panes. Not an accidental click on close window, since get a warning if I do that because of multiple panes.
