In Manage Data, I can see which cookies are used by which sites. If I want to sign in to a specific site automatically while still generally deleting cookies when I turn off Firefox, then I need to list all the cookies used by that site in Manage Permissions as Allow. This is easy regarding sites that use cookies all with pme common domain, since you just enter the one domain name. Today I wanted to preserve cookies from a major newspaper, but I find at least five domain names in the cookies that I have to protect in order to enable auto sign-in for that one site. My suggestion is that there be some improved method for easily 'transfering' (rather than writing down and re-keying) selected cookie domains from Manage Data to Manage Permissions, instead of having to rekey them and make errors doing that. If I want to auto sign-in to 15 sites, but keep the controls set for deleting unprotected cookies when closing Firefox, I would have to enter perhaps 75 domains by hand. An alternative might be a column in Manage Cookies whereby I could check mark a cookie, thereby transfering it to show in Manage Permissions, perhaps as defaulting to Allow for Session. Then I could review them and if desired switch each to Allow.

I was trying to stop websites from reloading pages automatically so i setted: accessibility.blockautorefresh = true and browser.meta_refresh_when_inactive.disabled =true. Now many websites when loading , shows at the top of the page a warn strip: " Firefox prevented this page from automaticaly reloading " , and also there is an "allow" button. In the older Firefox versions it was a preference in about:preferences#advanced page: " warn me when websites try to redirect or relod the page " and i was kept it unticked , but now i can't find it. Is there any way to keep stopping websites from auto reloading , but not shown this annoying warn ?

Somehow the sessionstore just showed a blank tab, but (if opened with a text editor) the sessionstore file containts the complete session (even the latest tabs) but its not possible to recover from that. If you for example open 5 tabs and then close firefox (and wait 2 minutes and check in the task-manager that its closed) and then deleting everything in the 'sessionstore-backups' folder and then starting firefox, then the 5 tabs are there again. I have made backups the moment firefox was not working anymore, but firefox seems to anyhow not load them (have multiple recovery files saved after first problems, instantly). I got the folder from about:support 'open directory' but i'm using Linux (Linux Mint 19 - Firefox 77.0.1). Maybe sessions are saved elsewhere? Firefox even inreased the data inside of them by the new 5 Tabs, so they grow in size, and if you opened it in a text editor you could search the new tabs even, as far as i remember from yesterday. Then i don't remember the order of two things from yesterday:


1. I moved some recently 'changed' files from the profile folder and then move them back (i wanted to backup, but i moved and the problem was somehow firefox was starting at the same time, it was a mistake, and then i had trouble not knowing if the preferences are still the same, and since i updated from i think 64 to 77.0.1 (i have a list of important changes) some where different, for example i would never have geolocation enabled. but others like the deleted pocket links (in about:config) are still the way they are, so i wonder. and i had multiple files in the moment


2. the sessionstore now is little (5 tabs probably), i tried to delete session store very often, i dont know if it was after this? but probably. But like i said i don't remember it.


But now the new problem. The History and Book marks file does not work, i moved them away or deleted them (of course backup before that) because this was an online tip, but the restoring thing just worked for the bookmarks, and just something between i think 1-3 days ago.


The problem now is i can't recover ANYTHING anymore. I can not really read the recovery file with a text editor, many letters are red, with the linux text editor, it says translated something like "some symbols don't work, please choose encoding" and there are many:

UTF-8 Central European (WINDOWS-1250) Unicode (UTF-16) Western (IBM-850) Unicode (UTF-7) ...

Over 50 different probably. Some even crash the program, what is the encoding for the recovery file?

There needs to be an Extension that is able to import and read broken sessionstore files, and 'places' files.


Probably i was to greedy, but i made stupid mistake accidently.

Hello,

I have recently started having an issue where my PC's TCP/IP stack stops working shortly after starting Firefox Browser.

Windows reports that the ethernet connection still has internet connectivity and pings to a WAN IP address return responses but it seems all TCP/IP functions higher than Layer 3 are not available.

No browsers can find web pages, Outlook cannot connect to our web based mail server etc.

The stack comes back up after rebooting the OS and stays up for all internet use with other browsers. It just fails a few seconds after starting Firefox.

I have run system file checker - no problems found. I have run Windows Memory diagnostic - no problems found. I have run SeaTools for DOS on the HDD and the Long Test Passed. I have run a full anti-virus and malware scan - no problems found.

I have not sent a crash report since Firefox itself hasn't actually crashed!

I have been a long time user of the browser and would rather not have to change to a different browser.

Any help in getting this resolved would be greatly appreciated...

Best regards,

Simon.

Apparently randomly, about every 2-7 days, all my extensions become disabled with no option to enable them again. I delete the compatibility.ini and all extensions.* files and the extensions are then enabled again.

I have tried creating new profiles, but it keeps happening. I have scanned for viruses. I have the latest versions of the extensions.

I sometimes *need* to run Firefox ESR v52.8.1 (64-bit) in parallel. I wonder if that could be the cause..?

I listen to Pipe Dreams on Pipedreams.org. and always played on Firefox with no problems up until July 12th 2020. Now they have changed their website and digitized all the music programs and the new program just sits there with a circle spinning around the PLAY button. I can play program on Microsoft Edge with no problems.

Firefox is always being updated so assume the latest add-ons codecs, apps etc are in there but obviously not one to play this program. So while I can easily use Edge, I thought someone, smarter than me, can figure out what's going on. Thanks
