When I open Firefox a tab for gmail opens every time, but cannot be closed (there is no "X" on the right side of the tab). Therefore, when browsing in other tabs, gmail is always open. How can I close it, or better yet, remove from my computer? It does not show up in the list of programs on my computer within the Control Panel.

Just installed the update to v79 (64 bit) on Win 10 v2004 (64 bit). I when Firefox reopened, I went to YouTube to watch a video and play would not work. You get the "thumbnail" pic of video and then the screen goes black and an error message appears saying the video cannot be played. I turned off the Hardware Accelerator, rebooted, same issue. Restarted in Safe Mode, same issue. Updated all Plug-Ins and Extensions, same problem. I can play YouTube videos in Chrome and Edge without issues.

I am trying to have two accounts open in two different tabs for the same account (it's an investing account and a TFSA account from the same bank) but when I log into one account it logs me out of the other. Are there ways to keep account specific tabs somewhere in the user settings?

Thank you.

Every time I open the browser a page says: "Sorry. We're having trouble getting your pages back". There are two buttons, restore session or start new session. It is annoying to have to do this every time. I have done everything suggested in the help section, from refreshing the browser, exiting browser properly and change the browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes in the about:config. Nothing works.

When I open Firefox it automatically opens Yahoo. On many occasions it opens up into a foreign language which is usually Spanish. All may settings are set for English everywhere! So why does this happen? If that is not bad enough, sometimes there is some kind of verification message that must be clicked on (choice of 2 boxes) Since I cannot read it I am not clicking on anything. I have to totally restart my computer to hopefully get things to work normally. I rarely have this problem with the the other browser...the one that comes with the computer. It did happen once.. Thanks..

Hello, After the last update I now have to click on the Bookmark link twice in order to place my saved page in the correct folder

Why?

I used to be able to click on the "Bookmark this page and was given drop down options as to which folder I wanted the page I was bookmarking to go.

Now I have to click on the book mark twice to save the page and then again to place the page in a certain file folder.

This is very frustrating and time consuming.

Background -- I have a Synology Disk Station. When setting it up, in order to make a secure connection I registered the Domain I planned to use with Synology and received a registered Domain Name. I then applied for and received a certificate from “Lets Encrypt. It worked fine for a few years. I was able to login to the Disk Station Locally using the Local Network IP I had assigned to it, and also able log in via the registered Domain through Synology with a Secure Connection using either method when logging in. Everything worked perfectly. Over a year ago I had some issues with my network (it has been too long ago for me to remember what it was). I could not resolve it, so when I called Netgear Tech Support they had me reset my router to factory settings. This did fix the issue I was having, but I later noticed resetting had changed my IP address. I thought this was not a problem at the time. It was then I also noticed I was no longer getting a Secure Connection on through my Disk Station. Have been trying to resolve this on my own, but I am not having any luck. But I am learning as I go. Present Day – I am still having issues logging in. The message I get when I log into the Synology registered Domain with Firefox is "Unable to Connect". I tried Chrome and get a similar message. When I log in locally using the assigned IP address I get "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead".

I click on the "Advanced" button where Firefox displays the Error Message:  SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN.  I continue with the exception and able to log into the Disk Station. 

My Goal is to get it working with a secure connection as it did before the Router Reset. -- I have checked all the appropriate ports are open. 5000 and 5001. -- Have checked for any firewall restrictions. -- I have tried replacing the previous certificate with a new one. -- Synology Tech Support does not seem to know, so I figure the problem lies within Windows 10 or Firefox. -- The Certificate in my Windows mmc Console says the Certificate is OK. Weather that is the one that is used for this connection I am speaking of, I do not know. -- The Certificate is current and has not expired. My apologies for this description being lengthy, I just want to make sure I state everything I can think of in order to get this fixed. I do not know a lot about this topic, but am learning as I go. Any help is very much appreciated.

Under options, privacy and security, History: Use custom settings for history, and finally, Settings for "Clear history when Firefox closes"- I would like to politely request an exceptions feature to this auto-clear setting.

I use Lastpass frequently, and up until now, I delete *everything* under this History setting when firefox closes. I've done this for years, but I'm growing very tired of logging into Lastpass with every browser close/reopen. And this auto-clear feature also wipes the local file necessary for account recovery if 2FA isn't possible for whatever reason (I've had this happen when a phone broke and I couldn't get to google auth).

I just want to be able to get rid of everything on browser exit, except for anything Lastpass related. Is this possible to create instead of employing an extension?

Hi there,

I just moved to another notebook after the past one dead, and I have to recover my past bookmarks from an external hdd. I just tried to convert the .json file into an .html one, but the problem is that with this way I have to manually reput on the library thousands of websites by clicking the link, while I'm looking for an option to automatically put all the websites in the library. Is it possible to do so?

Thank you
