Hi everyone,

My computer crashed while updating from Windows 10 to Windows 11. Unfortunately, I had someone look at it and he formatted my hard drive and only did a partial backup of files. I thought my Mozilla Firefox account was syncing, but it seems like it did not happen in a while. Does anyone know if there's any hope in recovering the lost tabs and bookmarks? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks,

Kenan

Firefox tells me to close program because Firefox is already running. When I close Firefox then re-open Firefox: same message. When I check Firefox in Task Manager, there are anywhere from 6 instances of FF running and sometimes up to 24. Something needs fixed.

Firefox has been my default browser for longer than I can remember. Over the years, I have maintained a significant bookmark file for work. I recently purchased a new computer, and my zero bookmarks from the new computer have replaced all of the bookmarks that I had in my old browser. This is a bookmark file that has successfully followed me through multiple computers and even my ios devices. And now it seems to be completely gone. I've looked at the places.sqlite files, and the largest one is 20MB and is in my current default profile, but it is dated today. That makes no sense because I do not have any bookmarks on this older computer, and my new computer doesn't have any either. The bookmarks have also been completely deleted from my iPad, but miraculously are still on my iPhone (evidently I had signed out of Firefox for iPhone at some point so they do exist somewhere.) The thought of trying to rebuild my bookmarks is nauseating. My only thought is to sign out of the browser on all devices, then sign back in and sync on the phone. Would that repopulate the main file with what's on my phone? Any other ideas?

I am suddenly getting pop-up windows from "Firefox Software Updater" as soon as I click the Firefox icon on my desktop (Windows 11) and laptop (Windows 10). The Firefox log in the pop-up is not in color, so I am immediately suspicious. The pop-up window did not happen on my laptop yesterday, but I got it on my desktop today, for the first time. I have answered "no" to the "do you want this app to make changes to this computer?". Is this legit from Mozilla? Usually, the browser updates automatically when I click the icon, saying I am now using the latest version of Firefox. Thank you.

I have two monitors, and I usually keep a stream/youtube video open on the second monitor while I browse the internet/play games. I used to do this all the time in OperaGX, but I recently changed to Firefox, and I've noticed that after about 10 minutes, the video or stream stops playing, and I have to manually pause and unpause the stream to get it running again. I have checked online, and I found a fix related to the about:config setting "network.http.throttle.enable" as "false" and the "network.http.throttle.version" as "1", but my firefox already had these settings like this.

Videos can't be played at higher playback speed Bug

On firefox, I cant play videos at higher playback speed or it'll only play audio or video will endlessly buffer. Using user-agent spoofer and changing to chrome makes it a little less worse but still the problem sustains. On Brave, the video doesnt have any effect of higher playback speed rather it'll make the video buffer and have very strong red contrast.

Hi,

I'm getting errors when trying to make online card payments with Firefox. Things like, Invalid card number, not being able to type number in box provided, (No Cursor). It works ok on some sites but not others. However, if I switch to the Edge browser all transactions work perfectly. This has been happening for some time (Windows 11). I'm thinking this could be a bug but not sure.
