Greetings, recently firefox 96.0.2 crashed running on windows 10. I had installed it long ago and I had tabs that were were active and I had installed 7 add-ons (extension). when I opened firefox after crash, I discovered 1 - no tabs existed, 2 - settings were as though it was a fresh install (I had to configure settings all over again) 3 - and no extensions I looked for restore under menu bar (the 3 stacked up lines) so far I have been unable to restore my old tabs and extension etc

I hope there is method to bring tabs back (most important). I tried to copy last month history with no success. Thank you for your help in advance. -Sed

I am having issues with opening link for external applications. The application can be What'sApp or Zoom or Slack and when trying to open an external app I get a windows that ask for me to select the application to open the link.. When doing this the only option have I have is System Handler and Choose Application.. Neither option is helpful.. This did not happen with firefox packaged with .deb .. I am assuming that this deal with snap sandbox security.. I later read an article

I did a little reading and came across a link https://ubuntu.com/blog/how-to-snap-introducing-classic-confinement

Which instructed on how to create a snap with --classic confinement.. I am not sure if this will resolve the issue that I am having .. But I didn't find that I could install firefox snap with the --classic option.. I am not that familiar with snaps so I could be completely off but wanted to know if someone could look into it..

I would like to add an image but it doesn't seem like firefox will allow me to on this page. (Browse is not opening a window) Also copy and paste didn't work

Ever since I updated to Firefox 96, I have been receiving the error message "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site." at times. Refreshing does help. This did not seem to happen with Firefox 95. I am currently on Firefox 96.0.2. I tried restarting the computer, tried refreshing Firefox, tried disabling hardware acceleration, etc., and the issue still persists.

I have been a "light theme" user for 15+ years. Since updating to 96.0 today, a dark mode spreading across Firefox has been forced onto me, including:

  • New tab background
  • Background of any tab waiting to load a page
  • Google/Youtube background
  • Settings/add-ons/password menu backgrounds
  • Automatic username/password drop-down background
  • Background of the little box that appears on the bottom-left (the one which shows the URL when you mouse over a link)

I am unhappy with this and wish to have my usual theme back. Can anyone please assist?

(In addition, there is some sort of white border around the current tab, which I do not like)

Webpages saved as PDFs using FF are very large files compared to the same webpage saved as a PDF using Safari. FF will create a 2-3 page pdf that is over 3 MB of data, while Safari saves the same pdf as 325KB. I never noticed this to be the case in the distant past but as my available storage space started shrinking rapidly on my MacBook I realized this might be the culprit.

I don't know when these large pdfs files started with FF but as I reviewed some similar files from several years ago, the same type of 2-3 page pdf in FF was in the KB, not MB of data. Can anyone help me understand why this is happening? Is there a setting that should be changed so these pdfs are not so bloated in size?

I am still using FF 88.0.1 having not made the leap to the newer versions of FF because of all the bad reviews. That said, I have not seen any info which indicates that FF scaled down pdf file sizes in the newer versions of FF.

In FF's Preferences pane PDFs are set to open in FF. Would it help reduce the file sizes if I changed that so they open in Mac's default application which I assume is Preview? I don't know if that's what the default preference was years ago when FF pdfs were much smaller files, or if changing that would make no difference at all.

Also, for what it's worth, I previously disabled FF's new-ish Print Preview Interface in about:config because it was consistently overriding the preset positions I set for my headers and footers, resulting in them being cut off the printed pages, however, the bloated pdfs were a problem long before FF introduced the Print Preview Interface feature.

Any suggestions on how to reduce the size of pdfs that FF is creating? I don't have and don't want to get a 3rd party application like Adobe Acrobat to deal with this, when I can simply use Safari as my browser. Thank you.

I use a 2021 Macbook Pro with all updated software. I consider Firefox my main web browser.

I have a Weebly website that I can always log into with Safari. But with Firefox, every few months or so, I'll get a message that the email address I use to log on is incorrect. The message usually lasts 2-3 weeks or so, and then, it mysteriously goes away and I can log in again (for a while). It has happened four times. Right now I'm in week 3 of not being able to log on with Firefox.

I have no idea if this is connected or not, but it all began shortly after I started using the Firefox Delay extension. I don't use it any more and the problem still happens, so it is a big question mark.

I only used the delay extension to log onto two websites - my weebly site and also my Craigslist ads. I've only had problems with these two accounts since then. I opened new accounts on Craigslist after stopping the delay extension - but I still have trouble with Craigslist email. I get emails from customers answering my ads but when I reply, I get a message that it was undeliverable, even though I think my reply was in fact, delivered. In both cases, the problem is with my email.
