Firefox is behaving strangely after updating to Big Sur. At first, the program would open but would not display an open window. I was able to open a new window from the Firefox menu, and now a window opens automatically upon starting Firefox again (although it actually flickers 1 time upon opening.) But this issue seems to be solved.

More importantly, my previous session did not restore after the update. And the tabs that I had open are not the ones that show under "recently closed tabs." Can anyone help me find these? (I do have this option selected in my preferences.) I believe that they are in my history, somewhere but that would be like looking for a needle in a haystack. Please help! Thank you.

My bookmarks have been lost. I think they're gone forever. I really needed them for work. A certain person hacked into my 1password account. I know it's "impossible" but not if someone knows you and is determined and smart. Anyway, he changed the email associated with my account, but not the password. I was logging in, and was prompted to enter the "original" email. Huh? I tried various ways to access my account to no avail. I had a recovery key, but no place to enter it. A different email worked. But my bookmarks are gone. Any ideas on how i can recover them?

My electronic certificates have disappeared from the firefox container: A few days ago my electronic certificates have disappeared from the firefox container The certificate provider has vetoed me from delivering a new certificate, because it is the second time Firefox has lost a certificate in 2020. The certificates I need for any management before the administration of Spain and more now with the COVID After it is granted, you have to verify your identity with the Tax Agency, and they have already called my attention for renewing the same year a certificate that firefox loses when it is updated. I'm very, very pissed off I will have to switch to Chrome

What I believe to be a mozilla site "https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/" has all the older FF versions but when I downloaded the Mac OS version 81.0 which is the en-US version it does not have the new credit card feature and it also does not have D.O.H. active by default.

The sha256 hash is c4975a1a73dd1976e1f58cf5822921d25f2fb4a0e092897037e039d7ac6b8a67

It should be en-US but it does not have the new credit card feature in the menu. Why? Is FTP site no longer valid?

hi I understand Firefox is still a browser but has added other features / functions now these extra added functions and features are causing problems for me and amongst others does not allow me access to other websites and services fex Firefox clashes with 1Password and makes it difficult to access my 1 Password account

Is there a way I can continue with Firefox as a Browzer only and delete all other functions and features added ? and that I by mistake have started saying yes to but understanding what this is all about no longer want to subscribe to As it no longer serves my purpose. greatful for a reply kind regards Ann

I have a strobe sensitivity and visual motion sensitivity, so the default Firefox settings aren't safe for me.

(For example, the default settings have flashingcursors, autoscroll, smooth scrolling, autoplay enabled, no ad blocker installed, etc.)

I can't use a new profile unless I can copy over all my existing safety and accessibility fixes. Besides about:preferences, that includes a number of fixes to about:config, userChrome.css, userContent.css, and a number of add-ons.

I am not quite sure what the Autoconfig can do, or how to set it up, but I understand I would need to manually track down and copy all my safety settings, which isn't even possible with the current about:config. And wasn't practical with the old one.

Anyway, trying to follow debugging instructions, which often involve creating new profiles, and then copying everything to these profiles so I can test them relatively safely, has gradually screwed up my Firefox installation. A lot of freezes, the url bar going unresponsive, etc.

Maybe if I can sync to a dummy location and then back I can fix this. I don't know what else I can do.

I am having the same problem as https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1459780 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1479607

I had accidentally deleted the email address I use from my email server before trying to sign back in to Firefox Sync. I added it back, and made sure that it works. However, it is impossible for me to sign in at all any more because I'm getting the "Your Email was just Returned. Mistyped Email?" error.

Please remove my email address from the bounce list so that I can sign in.
