Working at a project, had approx 20 to 30 tabs open for that and left it over night to continue today. The comp seems made a general update and restarting today seems Mozilla had upgraded too and appears with a specific mask (something new for me) as it wants by all means to enter a profile name finally to start working, i did, but having badly to recognize that all searched and open tabs are closed and deleted even from Chronik so that a week work just vanish .... I am absolutely angry about that .... at least update could offer and warning about to close and safe tabs as the update is going to delete them all.... aaaaarghhhhh

Hi everyone,

I want to use the website Roll20 for online role playing with people far away (and even complete strangers). On my former computer, I switched from Opera to Firefox to be able to use it with camera and microphone, and it worked well (Win8.1). On my new computer (Win10), it doesn't work any more. I don't get the prompt to allow the use of these devices. I don't even have any source to select for the microphone nor for the camera. I tried updating the drivers, updating Windows, but nothing changed. The camera works well with Windows's Camera app, and it seems to work fine on Roll20 with Google Chrome, so I still have this solution for next Sunday's game, but I would prefer to use Firefox if possible.

Hello

as most FF users, I've run into the issue of having a corrupt places or cookies database file several times in the last 15 years of usage.

I would like to know if Syncing can mitigate the risk of having a corrupt database file ever again? In other words, do FF servers recognize a corrupt file if received from my device? And would it help replacing it with the last intact file received?

I installed Firefox 6 days ago and since the 1st day, firefox had random tabs that crashed. Today, it happened several times. Even my browser closed itself.

I have no idea what's causing it.

I've added a screenshot of all the crash reports that I've send over the past 6 days. Hope this helps.

Kind Regards, Gunther.

Sometimes my updated Win7 Firefox stalls when loading websites. Of course sometimes its the website's fault. Crosschecking with Process Explorer I noticed something odd. In Firefox the Task Manager didn't show any great memory use but in Process Explorer it showed huge memory use. How can there be such a discrepancy and which one is accurate? I'd trust Process Explorer because the computer slowed down a lot when it showed a lot of memory use and as soon as I had closed a few tabs (not making much of a difference in Firefox's Task Manager but a huge difference in Process Explorer) all was fine. I'm using a i5 CPU with 16gb DDR3 ram. In almost every aspect the system is just fine, rarely showing its age. But I'm diligent in watching for programs running in the background, always checking Services.msc and MSCONFIG for newly installed programs that have elected to run all the time in the background for no sensible reason.

I created my Firefox account with an old email address that is no longer accessible and will never be accessible again. I added a secondary email address long ago and made it primary. My account is logged in on my phone and my old laptop, both need repair, laptop data is probably gone. I logged in on my new laptop and a tablet, but had to change the password. Now Firefox does not know my logins and passwords, history, settings and preferences, bookmarks. It seems as if I have created a new account. How can I regain access to my old data?

Hi, I hope someone can help - this is starting to get a little annoying. I'd like my New Tab page to display my Bookmarks in the Highlights section. I only check the setting to show Bookmarks since what I'm looking for is something a bit like Speed Dial. The Highlights section can populate Visited sites just fine, but no bookmarks show up. My bookmarks are saved in the default Other Bookmarks folder. Safe Mode makes no difference.

This worked when I first set it up, but now the section is blank (again). It seems to happen after PC has been shut down, but I haven't tested that properly. Trying the steps mentioned in this post https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1282646 did nothing. Last time I fixed it by deleting my bookmarks completely and re-adding them, but that's not really a long-term solution.

Toulouse le 16 octobre 2020. Bonjour, Je rencontre quelques soucis avec l'usage de Firefox 81.0.2. Je suis abonné au journal "www.ladepeche.fr. Je n'arrive plus, depuis 3 mois, à écrire un commentaire ou à lire les commentaires. J'utilise le webmail d'orange, je n'arrive pas à envoyer un fichier joint. Ces défauts n'apparaissent pas avec Microsoft Edge, ou Google Chrome, ou Internet explorer. Thunderbird me permet d'envoyer des fichier joints. Peut-être est-ce dû à la configuration de Firefox? Quelqu'un peut-il me donner une idée en espérant rétablir les fonctions perdues. Je le remercie par avance.

After an update done on October 13, the button that I clicked on to see the menu list that showed selections like "show all bookmarks' and "other bookmarks" to see my bookmarks suddenly disappeared. The button used to be on the top right hand corner of the page, to the left of the one that is titled 'view history, etc". Now I cannot find the bookmarks. Help. Thanks in advance.

PS - When I changed/edited the post, and redisplayed the question, it did not show my changes but when clicked the "edit this question" link, the edit box contained the changes. That is confusing.
