How can I change back to version 91.0.2 from this last update. I do not like the way that favorite tabs are presented, too much space between, not helpful. I like to be able to look at my entire saved entries, not scrolling thru because they are so far apart.

Hello,

I have used EVERY proposed step in this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-extensions-themes-to-fix-problems#w_the-problem-does-not-occur-in-troubleshoot-mode

Problem GOES AWAY when FF is used in Troubleshoot mode BUT, when I open FF on normal mode and make sure I UNinstall all addons, extensions, dictionaries, language packs, use default theme and DONT allow hardware acceleration, then the problem STILL persists!!!

It seems that ONLY when in Troubleshoot mode the problem is resolved: NOT by removing all obvious addons or cotrols.

The problem is : ANY download button, does not work! (it is clickable, and yes, the browser seems to respond to it -rapid flickering of browser window- but a download dialogue is never opened -nor a download file is found in any corresponding folder) -then, once in Troubleshoot mode, the same button is normally functional again!

What is a proposed solution to that?

What could control could be behind the problem, that IS NOT USER switchable, but IS INDEED controlled (disabled) when Troubleshoot mode is selected???

Could there be a .json file (corrupted, etc.), that associates with buttons/elements (like the download buttons) and prevents the download to be triggered?, SO THAT maybe if I remove the .json corrupted file the new one will work fine, (maybe such a .json file is NOT loaded during Troubleshoot mode, but IS THERE whatever settings i choose through the settings of the FF)


Thank you.

PS: I have 14 installed plugins, about all same as on my FF93.0 on Win10 laptop, that the packet works just fine!

I've tried changing/ shutting off the "shield" thing in the address bar to no avail. Most of the functions on the pages no longer work (The Player popup, Playlist page. etc.) Everything works fine on Chrome or my computer at work (Windows 10). There must have been a recent update to FFox that has hosed this page.

This is the penalty I'm paying to let you automatically install updates instead of notifying me of available updates I guess. Anyway here's the link:

Thank you, hopefully you can help me!

Is it possible to restore a lost session after another session was started?

I relogged my PC then a firefox window opened (not my homepage) which i accidently closed. Then i opened firefox and it opened to my homepage. I clicked restore previous session but all that was there was the page i had just closed that i had not wanted.

I tried crashing firefox and opening previous session but still brings me to this session.

Is my only option to go through my history for last many months to open all these tabs I previosly had open in 2 pages?

Given the increasing number and sophistication of threats, I prefer to do most of my work on the Web with the browser sandboxed, using Sandboxie+ (latest version).

FF 92.x worked fine with Sandboxie+.

FF 93.0 does not.

FF 93.0 sandboxed will not open sites, including National Weather Service ones, local TV stations news sites, national news sites (e.g. Huffington Post), or will take 10+ minutes to open the sites that it will open.

Again, 92.x did not have these problems.

I've looked at the Settings values, and see no difference between the ones I had in 92.x and the ones in 93.0.

The latest Chrome (ugh) version works fine sandboxed - opens sites w.o. problems.

Is there a fix?

Thanks.

Why is Firefox IGNORING any Font Changes? oh yeah and it is actually making them smaller when i try to make them bigger???????????????? And how can i possibly be the first person EVER to have this problem?????????????? Oh yes since I know your "experts" Just Like Google, will ask me a bunch of pointless questions. i am on a Dell running Windows 7 and yes i am going into FIREFOX settings and changing the fonts. They have also already changed on my computer's Display and Appearance Settings. so no one left to blame.

Font looks really ugly in this site: : https://yle.fi/uutiset/tuoreimmat In Opera instead font in the same site looks smooth and normal. I use ClearType and never before had such problem. Just shifted back to Firefox from Opera, because updated Opera has Privacy error notifications on too many sites and can't even get to some sites. Now Firefox looks so ugly. I suppose I'll go back to old Opera and never update anymore. Even old Firefox worked fine.

I do not know why you had to take something that works pretty well and screw it up with a hap-hazard update. I cannot open GMAIL in standard mode, it keeps wanting to go to HTML mode. I tried to figure out what in the world the solution is in the support center. is it , "Hold down the Shift key and left-click the Reload button Press "Ctrl + F5" or press "Ctrl + Shift + R" (Windows,Linux) '? This doesn't work. It then says to, "Clear the cache and remove the cookies from websites that cause problems via the "3-bar" Firefox menu button (Options/Preferences). "Clear the cache": Firefox/Options/Preferences -> Advanced -> Network -> Cached Web Content: "Clear Now" "Remove the cookies" from websites that cause problems. Firefox/Options/Preferences -> Privacy -> "Use custom settings for history" -> Cookies: "Show Cookies" doesn't work. I can't find the options/preferences button. As I alluded to at the beginning of my statement. It was working pretty good till this last update. Now I am really frustrated with firefox and looking at other options.
