Firefox has started to display my homepage (www.msn.com) as a newsfeed rather than the full content. I tried clearing my cache and it worked once, but has gone back to displaying as a feed. If I use another browser, such as internet explorer, the page displays correctly.

The feed display is unacceptable. I don't want to use another browser, but will be forced to do so if this problem can't be corrected.

I go to my minor league baseball site for the games. I click on the button to get an animated view of the game with real time action. Firefox tells me I have to have a flash player and must download it. I close firefox, go to google, go to same site, and click on same button. I gert exactly what I want. Google doesn't ask for any player. What I have is good enough. Why is firefox trying to force me to download a flash player i obviously do not need? Do I have to keep google towatch my baseball games??

I recently had someone malicious change my router's DNS server IP address to a bad one. When it was changed, I could not access google or facebook. I have fixed it and can browse both sites, but the search toolbar in the top right won't take me to google. I get an "Unable to connect" error. Doing other search engines (eg wikipedia) is fine.

Firefox 37 right out of the box (+router nonsense) on Ubuntu 14.

This is not so much a question, as an answer that some people desperately need.

Ever since Version 34, Firefox has done a superb job of restoring the tabs that the user has created, either on restarting Firefox (if that option is chosen) or on request.

The details of how to restore tabs are covered in Firefox's basic help online, and even how to deal with several crashes in a row (such as in an addon) ruin the normal backup file are also well explained.

However, today I accidentally pressed Alt+F4 twice on my poorly-designed keyboard and closed my main window, with 93 tabs, and another Firefox window as well. I'm not sure this is exactly what happened, but I lost all 93 of my tabs.

I read many of the postings in which people give various suggestions, but none worked. Every time I restored a version of the sessionstore.js file I saw the same lonely empty tab. Restoring prefs.js did nothing, and neither did making changes in the internal configuration constants.

I tried refreshing/resetting Firefox (which preserves bookmarks), but I still couldn't restore the tabs. It was now clear that the problem was in sessionstore.js (and all its backups) for sure.

I'm writing this for people who must restore their windows or tabs, and don't mind getting technical about it. That was my situation.

The solution was to realize that the sessionstore.js file contains JSON code, which is an efficient way to represent integers and strings arranged in a tree structure.

I figured there must be a JSON editor somewhere, and it turns out there is a great one available online, at www.jsoneditoronline.org . It can read a file on your computer, edit it, then save it back on your computer.

As soon as I viewed sessionstore.js in the editor, it was obvious how easy this was going to be. The top level of the tree is understandable. I simply grabbed the data representing the window with 93 tabs, and dragged it from the list of closed Firefox windows to the list of open windows. This automatically moved the history of each tab, and even the strings entered into forms.

After copying sessionstore.js back to the Firefox profile, I started Firefox one more time. The playing of Pandora signalled that my tabs were back and functioning once again.

Now, editing JSON code is not something that everyone is ready for. And your problem might not be reflected in the JSON tree so simply. But, for technical-minded people who don't want to lose their tabs or windows to a mistake or a crash, this technique can be just what's needed when everything else fails.

I set up sync in my user acct in order to transfer everything to my admin acct. I then switched users to my admin acct and reopened sync. After successfully transferring all data, the text in the tabs blurred. I logged out of sync and closed Firefox and switched users back to my user acct and opened Firefox. Before sync it took less than a second to open. After sync it takes 3-4 seconds and all tab text is blurry. All other text is normal except that in the tabs. Additionally, if I open "Customize" from the menu, the tab text returns to normal until I close it, then tabs get blurry again. Restart of PC did not solve the issue. OS: Windows 7 Home Premium, Firefox: 37.0.2 What have I done?
