All the thumbnails except for the starting page are blank when restarting the browser. I need to click on each and every tab to make the thumbnails show.

Is there a way to change this? It drives me up the wall, especially when having to restart multiple times -which happens a lot due to several factors. I have vision problems and need the thumbs to show to find my way around quickly.

Thanks.

Hi, I remember that some months ago, restoring Firefox I was presented with a list of all pages that were open when I closed the previous session, PROPOSING which pages restore and which not. There was a flag for each page, and I was able to recover only needed pages, discarding all intermediate pages that were not useful anymore. Tha was very good.

Now, restarting Firefox, it abruptly fires up ALL pages I had open at closing moment, without any chance to choose only few pages. What have changed ? Or, there are some settings that have to be established? I did not find anything on "choosing or selecting pages from last session" command. Thank you very much!

Hello,

I have Firefox with two profiles, Personal and Work. I also have a VPN provided by the company which is setup on Windows 10 as a Public Network, on both profiles the network settings are the same and while the Personal has anti ads and privacy plugins, the Work doesn't have a single plugin.

My issue is that the Personal profile is able to use the VPN and access the work network while the Work profile is not. With both network settings matching, are there any settings in the About:config that i can check that would co-relate with the issue that i'm having?

Firefox on Linux/ Wayland/ Sway is haveing trouble scaling on multiple screens when the screens have different scaling ratios

My setup: Firefox versions 70-74, developer version and stable; Ubuntu 19.10 with Wayland/ Sway; Internal Monitor 3000x2000 with scaling ratio 2.0 + External Monitor 192… (read more)

My setup:

Firefox versions 70-74, developer version and stable; Ubuntu 19.10 with Wayland/ Sway; Internal Monitor 3000x2000 with scaling ratio 2.0 + External Monitor 1920x1080 with scaling ratio 1.0

Ever since version 70 I noticed that Firefox would on first start scale either according to the external or internal monitor, and be perfectly workable on that one. But when moving it to the other monitor/ opening a new window on the other monitor it would not scale properly, but render according to the scaling factor of the other monitor. So, e.g. when moving from the internal to the external screen it would only render to the top left quarter of the screen, while the application was actually being the right size. At the same time the input mapping was according to the actual window dimensions, and not according to the visual rendering of Firefox. This would also happen the other way round, with Firefox then only rendering the top left part of the web page to the entire screen.

You can see this well on the attached screenshot, but notice that sway is a tiling window manager, so Firefox should actually be exactly the same size as the terminal next to it. Firefox also renders like this when the scaling factor was changed at run time, so the issue seems to me that Firefox on Wayland checks the scaling factor on startup just once globally and does not realize when it was changed or that it can be different on different monitors.

I installed Facebook Container add-on, after which I couldn't even open the Facebook page in Firefox and in Chrome. I first disabled the add-on, then removed it, then uninstalled Firefox and installed it again (restarting my computer at each operation). The problem is not solved. The message I get that there is an error loading the page - as if there was no internet connection.

I only have 1 browser open, but in my task manager, it shows 11 instances. some times when downloading, it came to a complete stop and it jams the internet. I can't even get Chrome and Edge to browse anything. I had to force Firefox to stop and it kills my downloads. it did not do this on the previous version of Firefox, but this latest version, it does that. currently on 74.0 (64-bit). 2 questions: why do I have this man instances opened? Why is Firefox freezing and blocked the internet connection? Once Firefox is force to end task, other browser is moving.

I have a KVM switch that is improperly made. It will not recognize the Back/Forward buttons on my mouse. The current shortcuts require me to move my hand off the mouse as they use a modifier (ALT+Left Arrow).

I want to create a single key Back/Forward shortcuts so I can keep my hand on the mouse. Specifically, I want to reassign (or add, not fussy) the F2 and F3 keys to Back and Forward.

How do I do that? (And to quote Gene Krantz, failure is NOT an option.)

When I open a tab and visit a website, the vertical slider on the right is sometimes black with a black background, or grey with a grey background. When it's grey, the slider bar is slightly darker than the line. When it's black on black, the color is exactly the same and I can't see the slider bar.

Is there an option to change the color of the slider line or the bar?
