I had two Firefox windows open in the past hour, and accidentally closed the one I was using, and then closed the other as well to try to tidy the situation without realizing I could only access the most recent closure. Unfortunately, Firefox will only open the most recent session to be closed, so I can't access the 30+ folders that i need to restore from the first window. I am a non-technical person currently in hospital. Can anyone help?

Firefox version 109.0 (64 bit) I have 2 Laptops, A and B. Laptop A: about 2 years ago Adobe and Flash quit the business, Firefox was doing ok then after an Firefox update videos would not play, I have to use chrome to this day, Had Windows 8 then updated to 10, no difference Laptop B: Everything was good until a couple of weeks ago January ? 10-20?? 2023. Just after an Firefox update my Facebook would not fully load, I can only see a couple of post followed by 3 post that only show a outlined box with an error occurred and if I click on it or anywhere else it kinda of locks up and does nothing. I can use Facebook on my cell phone (no Firefox) and on Laptop A (chrome) so nothing wrong with Facebook. I tried turning on-off, all that stuff. Tried using MS Edge still would not load fully. I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled, no help. I updated Windows 10 to 11, I can Run Facebook thru MS Edge but still cant thru Firefox. Just seems like Firefox doesn't like videos. Has my time expired with Mozilla Firefox?

Firefox continues to indicate I am using Windows 8. I have NEVER used Windows 8 in my liftetime. I use Windows 10 and after locating the program compatibility location to change to Windows 10, Windows 10 isn't an option. I changed my OS to 10 in your box below. Why? I don't understand this.

Paste and Match Style missing from Firefox 109.0 on macOS

You used to be able to "Paste and Match Style" by either right-clicking and selecting "Paste and Match Style" or by pressing cmd+shift+v. This seems to have gone away in recent versions. I don't use it too often, so I'm not 100% sure when this change was made, but it is not there in the latest version. This is essentially required when pasting from certain apps into a rich text editor on a website. OneNote, for example, requires this. Now if I want to copy something from OneNote into a rich text editor (like a GitHub issue or Stackoverflow answer) in Firefox, I have to first paste it into a text editor and then copy again to paste it in the browser.

I'm attaching two screenshots one of the context menu when pasting into the body of a GitHub issue in Firefox from OneNote and another of the context menu while doing the same thing in Chrome.

Is this expected? It seems odd to remove the feature when it makes working between other widely-used apps difficult.

I've been using firefox's built-in pdf editor and I know it's saved my edits in the past, but the file I'm working on right now never seems to save my annotations and I'm not sure why. I've saved it half a dozen times with the same name as before and changing it, and all I've managed to do is get more copies of the unchanged file on my computer. Does anyone know why this is happening?

I have a user that is unable to open Firefox. When she tries, she gets a popup that says Firefox is already running, but is not responding. I have followed the troubleshooting guide, but I am still having this same issue. I uninstalled, and reinstalled Firefox twice with fresh downloads from the Mozilla website. We are still having the same issue. Unless I close Firefox through task manager, the window will keep popping up.

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Hi - Suddenly after using Firefox for many years I cannot open several of my financial-banking sites on my laptop. After entering the password, the browser goes back to the log-in screen. Starting again repeats this circle. I have tried turning off enhanced tracking but there is no effect. This problem occurs on these sites: new.alterna.ca, alternabank.ca and motivefinancial.com. Oddly enough, easyweb.td.com still works to access my account. On my android mobile, logging in with Firefox works fine on all these sites. Can you help me resolve this issue? I don't want to have to start relying on Edge or Chrome! Paul Thomson

I thought I'd give the Foxfire a try on my Windows 10 laptop, so I downloaded and created an account, etc. All worked fine until I tried to use my desktop shortcuts to open Chrome, Google Photos and Gmail. Non would open. I then opened Google and found my sync was off. I tried to sign in and could not sign into my Google Account, I then spent several hours with Google support trying to find the problem. At last, it allowed me to sign in and restore all my Google account items. I then uninstalled Firefox as I didn't want to go thru this problem again.

Does anyone know why this occurred and how to avoid it again if I were to want to reinstall Foxfire?

Thanks for the help.

Ever since upgrading to the latest browser (109.0) I cannot login into both of my facebook accounts. One works fine, but the other one, when I input the credentials, goes to the first account. It only does this on firefox v 109.0. I tried them both using Opera, and they both work fine. What did you people do? Are you saving my logins improperly? If so, WHY?? Fix this problem or lose a very long time customer.

After updating to 109.0 Firefox won't open on primary monitor. I have moved it, closed it, but it restarts back on secondary monitor. After I move it to primary monitor, if I open another browser window it opens on the primary. I have renamed the xulstore.json file(so it creates a new one) but that did not help. It was working fine before the 109.0 update. I also have chrome installed and it works fine the way it should, so I'm thinking it is a Firefox 109.0 problem.

For the last couple of months I have had problems streaming some of the channels that come via Sling when I try to watch them on my Dell Latitude E5450 laptop. I can see them fine on my regular t.v. but now not on the laptop. That's a huge change in the last few months because for years I could stream every Sling channel to my laptop. Since my t.v. does not use Firefox, that suggests the problem is something Firefox has done. Not surprising, I guess. Probably happened when it was fixing some other something it screwed up. Nonetheless, any ideas for how to resolve this WITHIN Firefox capabilities? (And don't suggest it's Sling's fault. Sling streams just fine, thank you very much, in Edge.)

I have Windows 11, ver 22H2, on laptop. I use Nord VPN and Webroot antivirus which I have been using several years. This event just started occurring a week ago, and I can't find any Google references to it. As soon as I open Firefox a pop-up appears that says: "Quit your browser app. For Threat Protection to start working with your browser, you need to quit it first. Quit Firefox and click Continue." Then there are two clickable choices, Continue and Cancel. I always click Cancel because I don't know what this Threat Protection is. Then the pop-up keeps reappearing. About every five minutes it pops up and two or three times in a row after I click Cancel. It does this as long as Firefox is open. I have tried disabling Nord VPN and it made no difference. I have run complete scans with Webroot and it found nothing. I have tried uninstalling Webroot antivirus & rebooting and it made no difference, the pop-up still appears. I have tried downloading Malwarebytes and running a complete scan while Webroot was uninstalled, and it found nothing. I am out of ideas. I fear it is malware, but Nord VPN did not stop it, and both Webroot antivirus and Malwarebytes scans find nothing. I would appreciate any help.

Every time I want to go to twitch.tv and type "tw" in the address bar, Twitter is the first suggestion. I don't want to go to Twitter. I've followed all the instructions in this post: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/remove-websites-address-bar-suggestions#firefox:mac:fx109 and still the problem persists.

When I use shift delete, it does remove the suggestion, but then as soon as I add an i (making "twi"), Twitter is back at the top again. I've deleted every instance of Twitter in my history/cookies/cache and it keeps doing this.

Why can't Firefox prioritize a website I visit daily and have several bookmarks of (Twitch) over promoting a website I do not want to visit? Please fix this.

For about a month or so I have been having this problem. Every once in awhile when using Firefox it will pop up to a full sized white screen except for my taskbar and freeze for a couple of seconds. This will happen usually when I am opening a new page/link or moving to a different tab. I have quite a few tabs open but I have always ran Firefox this way and never had problems before.

Sometimes after flashing white several times Firefox will crash. Ending the Firefox task in Task Manager, running a cleaning program and restarting fixes this for a while but it still keeps happening. Any help or advice is appreciated.
