Hi, I have used Firefox on my desktop pc using Windows o/s many years with minimal problem. Last few weeks Firefox operating strangely. Starts off fine then after opening a few tabs will not open others. Seems to be searching for new url but no show. When I close it down to re-open fresh a pop-up box appears with option 'close firefox'. Only when selected will firefox re-open. That then works fine for a few tabs then will not open after that. I have tried Refresh, Restart without add-ins, Safe mode. None have removed the problem. I have thought about Uninstall then reinstall a 'clean' firefox, but worried about losing all my data. The problem seems to have started a few weeks back after a Windows 10 update but I am not sure about that. Any help gratefully received. Thanks.

Hi,

I tried to remote control firefox with the Selenium WebDriver and Java fio testing purposes. This ended in some instances of crashed or otherwise leftover running instances of the geckodriver.

I restarted my computer (Win 10) and started Firefox (no remote software started this time).

And now, whenever I start Firefox, it says it is remotely controlled (Robot icon / Orange bar).

How can I start Firefox in un-controlled mode again (so that ie: I can login into google again)?

(Addons = none) Thanks for help.

I know this a an old question but I can not find any help articles that are 2020 current. Each time I click on a bookmark or link it opens a new tab. The problem is the focus remains on the current tab not the new tab. What config setting makes the newtab get attention or focus.

Firefox is unusable on my Surface Pro X in tablet mode, as the onscreen keyboard keeps "pushing" the FF window to the upper half of the screen (as seen on the screenshot). The keyboard disappears, too. It appears again when I try to enter something repeatedly, but unfortunately the FF window stays in that weird mode. I already tried to change some osk settings in the about:config. I didn't help, though.

All my Bookmarks and Tabs have vanished after the Firefox 82.0.3 update yesterday. Related? Searching for hours, including Firefox site and cannot find solution. I noticed 'Restore Previous Session' was recommended as a 'fix' at some links. Mine is grayed out...if that matters. I have VERY important bookmarks, including links related to Hurricane Sally destruction to my home. PLEASE HELP! I'm not very computer savvy, so 'instructions for dummies' would be helpful. PS...I was able to bookmark this page, but at least 100 bookmarks vanished. Tabs & Bookmarks are fine with Safari and Chrome. Unfortunately, I rarely used those and did not migrate most Bookmarks to them. Lesson learned. Thanks in advance John

I use a particualr website almost every day. Up until recently I was able to navigate, via a navigation pane within the site, to any one of eight sub sites via the appropriate links. This no longer works and I am 'dumped' back to the base web page. This only happens with Firefox. If I use a competitor web browser (!) the internallinks work as programmed.

Firefox is my browser of choice,but is currently unusable for my needs- please help!

I have used Dashlane for years. All of a sudden no extension icon appears in my browser extensions bar and no option for Dashlane appears when I search for extensions in Firefox. I have Dashlane on my computer but it won't autofill. Manually hunting for passwords is becoming very tiresome. I've gone through every Firefox explanatory page for this problem I could find in Google search to no avail. Can you tell me what's up?

Hei All,

I recently noticed that some of my bookmark folders have unfortunately been emptied.

I read related articles without finding any solution. So here are my questions:

- I am wondering if this might be due to a sync issue? I am mainly syncing between Windows 10 and iOS both on laptops. Once i turned on the sync on my smartphone, a Fairphone 3 with Android. But I turned off the sync and deleted all my browser data soon after. May this have caused a data loss?

- I've also recently tried out the multi-container add-on, but removed it again. Could this be the cause?

- Is there any limit in the amount of bookmarks one may save?

- And is it possible to restore ones bookmarks older than three weeks ago, from the cloud?

Thanks in advance for your help, still hoping to find those bookmarks back :)

Cheers, Tig

Recently, my Win7 PC failed. I was running the latest Firefox as default browser. Fortunately the C: drive was unharmed in the failure and all data was intact. Unfortunately, after a recent reload of Norton I overlooked including Firefox in the backup data set. My new computer is Win10 (bleagh) with the most current version of Firefox as default browser. What files on the Win7 C: drive contain my bookmarks and how do I get the Win10 version of Firefox to import them?
