This may seem to be a senseless problem, but I don't see well and it's rather important to me. There is the search/address bar at the top of the screen. There is also the somewhat larger one down towards the middle of the screen. This is the one I use a lot. Recently, when I start typing in that lower box, I am immediately jumped to the upper one. This is something new. I cannot find a setting to prevent this from happening. (I have tried switching browsers - someone suggested that might help, but not so.) I would very much appreciate any ideas. Thank you.

When I type something random in the search bar without http or https the Google search result loads just fine, and I can go to the next page on Google and everything.

But when I use the http or https protocol nothing loads or I get "the connection has timed out".

All other browsers I have installed work just fine.

Before the error happened I changed Firefox proxy settings. Right now the setting is "no proxy".

I made a very interesting observation. Somehow I got lucky and managed to go to https://www.google.com just once. If I copy and paste the link the site loads again just fine. However, if I change the url to another website like https://www.bing.com/ then the site doesn't load and eventually I get the error "connection has timed out".

Any ideas?

and I appreciate it

Running on Windows 10. Got message that new version was available and clicked download download. Exited Firefox. A few minutes later, I clicked the Firefox icon in the menu. I got a full screen gray box with a few shadow lines that would probably be menu bars. No images showing. Repeatedly get "Firefox is not responding" with close Firefox or wait. I click wait and nothing happens. It has a spinning progress icon but no activity. Task manager shows 0% CPU, Disk and network, and 10.1MB Memory. I rebooted the computer and get the same result when restarting Firefox. I suspect a bad image was downloaded that corrupted Firefox and I don't know how to recover. I hope to be able to access the tabs I had open before the update. Any suggestions? Thanks Richard Flowers

Please find a way to help us restore session once lost. Going into Library retrieving and copying should not be the only way - and times history is gone.

Is there not an easier way to create a daily back-up withing Firefox to simply hit 'Restore' ?

This is extremely time consuming - when multiple history is lost while researching. There MUST be an easier way to help us with this ongoing issue. Thank you for my current headache, and loss of time.

Something changed in Firefox a few days ago and now I cannot open multiple tabs in the same website and still have choices for their options . . . which I have had for years.

Now . . . with whatever changed . . . it keeps forcing me to the first option I chose. Please return Firefox to the way it was a week ago. Thank you.

To log into my mortgage lender's site I have to enter my email address. Beside this field is the Facebook container symbol; mousing over it warns me that if I enter my email here, Facebook can track me. Mortgage Lender used to allow me to log in with a user name, but now requires my email address, which apparently gives Facebook access to track me. Tried speaking to the lender about this, but they simply assert there are no Facebook trackers on their site. So, any workaround for this besides just doing all my business with them by phone from now on?

Howdy

A sequence of events: -Updated to firefox 109 -All sites started loading super slowly. Refresh didnt work. Reset didnt work. Troubleshoot/safe mode had the same issue. Full uninstall/reinstall didn't work. Pages taking in excess of 1 min to load, when Edge loads just fine -Tried to run firefox profiler to get a handle on what's going on. -Profiler crashes firefox after recording is ended -On restarting firefox all extensions and theme were missing from toolbar and the about:addons page -Go to reinstall them. Prior extensions (uBlock and Stylus) are apparently already installed??? -Remove addons, page now has option to install, and reinstall -Still not showing in about:addons or in the toolbar, but once again back to only having the option to remove -Install firefox nightly instead -Same problem -Attempt to reinstall theme. Same problem: apparently already installed, very much not present -Signed out to see if it was some funky problem with my account post-crash. Nope. Can't use extensions when I'm not signed in, either.

Windows 10 home 19044.2486. Happening on both regular firefox 109.0 and firefox nightly 111.0a1

I'm trying to access a video on meethook.live. I did so in 2021 using the Firefox browser, but for some reason, it won't work anymore. The kind people at Meethook.live suggested using Chrome or Safari, but I don't want to use either of those browsers. Unfortunately, I can't figure out how to change any settings to make it work. I tried a few security settings, dropping a few protections I had set up, but that hasn't helped. Can you suggest anything?

Suddenly today my browser had switched any current tab to the bottom of my window, but it also only lets me see one at a time..which means I can't see multiple tabs open unless I close the current one. My tab bar is gone entirely and was up-top as it's always been, just under the URL box.

I didn't hit any key combos that I know of that would cause this, and I can't seem to find anyone else with the same problem when I search for a solution. Does anyone know what I can do to fix this?? It's very odd and annoying, I've never had it happen before now..

I took a screen-shot of the problem, showing what happens when I open a site or any tab:

Thank you very much for taking a look and any help with this strange issue,

-Chris
