HI,

Using Firefox ver 96.0.2 (64 bit) Windows 8.1

When starting up Firefox it suddenly has started to search for previous sites but cannot find them. Always before it always started up with selected homepage. I have checked my settings and the only one that from my understanding could have any effect on this is

- Open previous windows and tabs

which I have not selected.

On another computer with windows 11 it works fine.

Best Regards Marten

Firefox 68. A web site I visit daily always shows a popup asking me to accept cookies ("aceptar y continuar navegando"). It's annoying.

In options, I've selected "standard" for the cookie policy. I've emptied the cache, used the "forget this site" in the history for the web pages where the message pops up, and reloaded Firefox. It still prompts me.

Here's one of the pages it happens on: https://www.antena3.com/series/el-secreto-de-puente-viejo/avances/ Click "avances" or "momentos" and a large black box should pop up on the bottom of the screen, with the "aceptar y continuar navegando" in the lower right in a red rectangle.

Essentially, I want to tell the web site that I accept having cookies and have the web site remember my answer for the future.

Sick and tired of asking! Community Volunteers are mostly a dumb bunch! Now that I have attention, why-oh-why does Firefox usually (but not always) whenIi want to print 3 or more pages, whether I try to Print or I go into Print Preview, Firefox only gives me the first page (and sometimes that is empty, except for the header) and then it give me the next (or first) page, then I get the 3 of 3 pages - even if there is more! Have to go to Chrome or another browser to print the whole 4, 5, 6, (or however) many pages. I do not think it is a 'settings' issue on my desktop...or any of my laptops. What is wrong with Firefox? This page, for example, https://www.metopera.org/season/in-cinemas/2019-20-season/agrippina-live-in-hd?utm_source=HD%20Porgy%20and%20Bess&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=1-20LiveinHDPorgyandBess&utm_content=version_A is about 6 pages long (if I view in MS EDGE or Windows Explorer (which MS says should no longer be used!) - it's 6 pages, but if I go to Print in Firefox (using Win 8.1 on a recently overhauled desktop (or on a brand new Win10 HP laptop) I get the first page and page 2 of 2 is a header oly. Same in Print Preview. FIREFOX DON'T WORK!!!

On several occasions, FF72.02 has coased all my favicons to disappear (Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit). How can I recover these. Neither backing up the bookmarks as .json file nor backing up HTML bookmarks allows me to recover. Is there any file I can save to ensure the favicons are backed up. At one time there was an add-on, "Favicon Restorer" that worked resaonably well but it has not been available for some time. Restoring favicons manually is an extremely time consuming process and is no guarantee the they will not disapper again. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Starting about 02/11/2020, links in emails take me to a blank page and FireFox stops working. Must close FireFox.

I have neither added nor updated any add-ons.

I disabled all add-ons with no change.

Under Performance, I unchecked " Use recommended performance settings" and 'Use hardware acceleration when available". No change.

The only way a link works is if I have (basic) FireFox already running.

I have reversed the above changes and await HELP.

For the last few weeks I haven't been able to pay via Paypal on Ebay. The Paypal sign in circle just keeps spinning. So I've had to use Chrome to make my purchases. I'm having other problems elsewhere. I can't sign into my account on an Newspaper I read. And I can't access the tracking boxes on the Collect Plus website. This has all just been in the last few weeks. And it doesn't happen if I use Chrome. Firefox is up to date. I disabled add ons. Made no difference. Any advice for a fix??
