Window with 50+ tabs disappeared from history (again) and I cant restore the session

Last October my sessions were gone after a Firefox Update. I asked for help here: https://support.mozilla.org/sv/questions/1394685 and eventually got kind help from @cor-el (that unfortunately wasn't skilled enough to understand) and from @RayGibson57. But by then, my life was in a flurry and I didn't have time to try the advice. And so, after a while I had, with some effort, gathered many of the old tabs back again, and built up new sessions.

This Monday I was trying to internet while having high fever (something people should never do :o ). I left three blank windows open when I shut down the computer, and next morning those three were the only ones Firefox wanted to remember.

(I still find this change frustrating, bordering on infuriating: what happened to "Choose how many old sessions you want Firefox to remember", I think the maximum was ten?)

Now the fevers left and I went to those answers to try. That Q/A was archived though, so I'm starting again here, from as far as I got following King Rays instructions. They were:

  1. Open the application menu (3 horizontal lines) next to the address bar.
  2. Click on Help -> More troubleshooting information.
  3. With that page open, find Profile Folder and click on Open Folder. That's how you get to the folder with backup files in it.
  4. Set computer up to see all the extensions & system files. By default, the extensions don't show up (.jsonlz4 is an extension).
  5. I found an older file in that sessionstore-backups folder and copied it one level back to the main profile folder.
  6. Renamed the sessionstore.jsonlz4 to sessionstore.jsonlz4.old and the file I copied, I renamed to sessionstore.jsonlz4.
  7. Opened Firefox and that missing window was in the history so I could open it.
  8. Don't make any typos here, because Firefox won't find the files it needs to open.

I got as far as finding the Profile folder and the sessionstore-backups folder.

But I cant find any jsonlz4 file called "sessionstore". Only a "sessionsCheckpoints" and that one is a json file, and the date modified is today.

See screenshots please!

Can anyone talk me trough this like Im a grandmother from Sweden with extremely limited coding & tech skills (which is what I am)?

Until recently, this extension had worked well on YouTube, where downloading videos has usually worked for years without an issue.

However over the past month or so, when using the Linux system, it's become impossible to download any video from YouTube, without an error popping up after a couple of seconds.This occurs whatever choice of aspect for a video is available, be it in mp4 or mkv format. I should emphasize that this issue only seems to occur on YouTube. Other unrelated sites that host video-sharing still work with Linux.

In Windows 10, Video DownloadHelper with YouTube still seems to be working as normal. So any ideas why I can no longer use this extension with Linux and YouTube?

Regards,

Hi everyone,

I have permitted a website to access my location, but Firefox is not retaining the settings. While I am on the web site I keep getting the "Allow www to access your location" popup several times in a row and the website still reports that I need to enable the option. This is happening to all websites, not only this specific one.

What I have done thus far:

Restarted Firefox Refreshed Firefox Rebooted my computer Cleared Firefox cache and cookies Confirmed under Settings/Privacy & Security/Location that the site www status is "Allow" Removed my ad block settings from my router as I don't use a local add on

I am using Firefox 116.0.2 (64bit)

Thank you!

[SOLVED] Firefox account not syncing Gravatar photo

Hi,

On September 15, 2022 I created this thread here on Firefox Support Forum and now I finally have an answer to the question, but as we can see my thread was archived and I can't update anything, so I decided to create a new thread just to mark my previous question as solved and bring it an answer.

I contacted Mozilla Firefox developers and got a response: Firefox is no longer integrated with Gravatar. Considering this, I can tranquilly say there is no bug or problem with my account as I thought. It's a pity that Firefox no longer support Gravatar integration, and even if I use an old version I will face the same "issue" because the Gravatar integration was a online feature linked to the Firefox account*, not to the browser itself.

Info source: https://github.com/mozilla/fxa/issues/15665

Admins can now archive and close this thread, I only ask to keep it online to help who may need this information in the future. Thanks.

  • Actually I made a mistake when I wrote this, the Gravatar integration was an online feature linked to the Mozilla account, not Firefox. James explained the distinction on #4 post of the current thread.

Last edit: On January 31, 2023 I created this thread on r/firefox but no one answered precisely. This current thread here on Firefox Support Forum also solves what was asked on reddit. The thread created on January 31, 2023 and posted on r/firefox was archived as well, like what happened to my thread with the same theme here on Firefox Support Forum, then I also created a new thread on r/firefox to mark my question as solved.

Hey, since 2 months firefox started crashing when a video comes to the end. I tried it in troubleshoot mode skipped to min 10:45/10:50 and played. after this 5 sec it just crashed. I noticed it on youtube but tried it on other players and it also happened. Today I also started a video on a other website and it crashed but not when starting youtube videos.

Here my last 5 crash reports: bp-8fdedc8b-c8bc-404f-9e3e-8f2fd0230813 bp-b15becdb-456b-4a22-971c-2c0c20230813 bp-9754361a-f67b-445a-9163-c88a20230813 bp-cffc46ae-9ae5-4678-a323-7b60b0230813 bp-a863679a-577e-45f4-9f4e-002bc0230810

YouTube videos on Firefox getting slower and jerky. After refreshing Firefox (Settings -> Help -> More troubleshooting information -> Refresh Firefox), it is OK, but only for a short while. Then the problem starts again. Same YouTube videos are running fine with Chrome at the same time.

Running Windows 11 Pro (Clean windows setup not long ago and the issue was there from the beginning.) German Language Firefox 116.0.2 Build ID 20230805021307 Intel CPU i7-1360P, 16 GB RAM, 1TB M.2 SSD

Would really appreciate a solution for the issue because I really like Firefox!

When I am typing in a search request in google, the type disappears frequently and I cannot even correct it because the whole line disappears. I thought this was happening when I misspelled a word but it seems to happen in other situations also. This is very annoying.

So my last thread on this was archived without anyone giving me a reason or answering my question.

I have had issues with the website Archive of Our Own since last November, when I tried to change the site skin and permanently changed the default font of that site to something called Lucida Sans Unicode, when it's apparently meant to be Lucida Grande.

This much I was able to work out via my previous thread, but when I asked for that last bit of help, nobody answered and my thread was instead archived.

I don't know how to change a font on a specific website. I don't even know if the site has tools I could use that would work for me. All I know is I still cannot read bold or italics on Archive of Our Own with my screen-reader, NVDA, unless I use reader view, which excludes author's notes and comments, and I had thought I was close to a breakthrough before my thread was unceremoniously archived.

For reference, the thread is here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1403415

I tried inserting a link via the button above this box but it did not give me the necessary code used in this forum for links, so a straight url is the best I can do.

I have always had this option with Chrome and other browsers. But I can't find this feature in the latest version of FF.

I want to disable images on specific websites, not all websites. I examined my address bar and there's no option there at all when I'm the specific site I want to block images and/or media.
