Hello,

My computer crashed today. On restart, Firefox looks different. I'm sure I had a theme or add on installed prior to the crash. But I don't have any memory of what it was. Is there a history I can look at for that? If so, how do I access it? Thanks.

all the websites look weird. I've included a screen shot of youtube for reference. Disabling add-ons didn't fix the problem. I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it but that also did not fix the problem. I haven't tried deleting my user data because it's a bit of a hassle to get it all back. Let me know if there are some other things I can try.

Websites on my Firefox are not appearing correctly. I think this started when I was playing around with the Privacy and Security settings. I changed the settings back, but the issue persists. Sorry I cannot explain this issue more clearly... Please see images. The first shows an example of how websites are appearing with my Firefox now. The second, using Safari, is an example of how websites used to look - and how I want them to look again. Thank you! I miss my old Firefox.

Hello,

I wrote in about an hour ago, but clicking Submit resulted in a blank page - no acknowledgement or notice from you in email since. Pls forgive if you get this twice.

I was clearing Recent History when FF crashed and lost many important open tabs. This happened with V. 93.

I back up daily with Time Machine. I'm wondering if there's a file in Application Support or elsewhere it can restore to bring the tabs back?

System profile attached.

Any help appreciated. Peter

Dear Mozilla community, I was re-ordering the main tabs for daily use. The little blue line that indicates a move-change was about to show up when my finger slipped from the Apple Magic trackpad. The TAB that I use for dissertation work (PHD) disappeared. Thinking that it simply was transferred to the my Bookmarks, I checked there. No joy. I also checked to the bookmark menu TAB for my university teaching work. Not there either? Hmm. I searched for the Bookmark (PHD) and I am not able to locate it.

Any suggestions?

I would be most grateful.

Sincerely, AM

Got one response from a volunteer but that response, unfortunately, was for Windows. I'm on a Mac...

When I select the bookmark, Firefox does nothing, apparently.

iPhone works just fine on sites that Firefox won't access, so it's not the modem or the ISP.

Thanks in advance!

The recent update to the Firefox browser on my Mac now defaults to the search bar at the top of the page as I type and provides a stream of unhelpful suggestions. Previously I was able to type in what I was looking for in the Firefox search bar in the middle of the screen unhindered until I had completed the sentence and then press search. I would like to reset it back to that. I have tried to change it via Preferences but it didn't work. Thanks for any help. Trekker.
