Hello guys!

So i have been searching all over for how to recover my deleted cookie data. I clicked on where it says manage data in the prefences but I didnt mean to click delete data. Is there anyway I can restore that info? It is mostly because I use this site called band camp to download music and I keep a lot of tracks that I want to buy in my cart. but since I deleted the cookie data now all those songs I found are gone along with all the other cookie data. Is there an easy way to do this? im running Firefox 77.01

I am now getting extremely slow response from weather.com when requesting radar images. It takes over 30 seconds for the page to load. The same page on Safari loads in a few seconds. Also, a Firefox process drives one CPU core to 100% busy for the duration of the load. This something that must have degraded in the last several updates. I'm using Firefox 77.0.1 (64-bit) on macOS. Any one else have this trouble?

Every time I try to watch YouTube on Firefox with my macbook air I get this playback error (Playback ID: sEHXuiLJtgNbGvyb).

I am not using any extensions at all. I have already tried turning off hardware acceleration and it did not help. I can watch youtube on any other browser and what is annoying to me is that only the ads are playing on youtube with firefox. For some reason when they do play the bar the play button that it is on seems glitchy and keeps flashing same with youtube's menu bar.

I have tried to Clear Cookies and Site Data repeatedly in Standard, Strict and Custom modes with no success and repeated that test when trying to uncheck Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed. Incidentally this problem began occurring when Firefox offered me the opportunity to use DNS Over HTTPS. I Like using DNS over HTTPS although it may very well be that hackers and info miners (Phishing) do Not like this new firefox setting and have adjusted their cookies into Permanent SOLs. Google hires hackers for many things. How can you help me you ask? Please repair the problem.

I live in the mountains of North Wales so am at the end of a lot of copper or (even) aluminium wires. I rotate ISPs regularly and have been at this shit since the WWW was invented and have even bought a Cisco router to host our own web site in the 1990s. I KNOW that the ISPs manage my connection speeds, router management software WILL be more capable than the Cisco router we managed ourselves!! I notice a similar profile of getting the speeds that are advertised at the start of a contract and then to throttle it as they add more customers to the same kit that they lease from OpenReach; increased latency! I also get OpenReach business notifications and know that the ISPs pay OpenReach for not only bandwidth that they use but also the electricity that powers them, OpenReach also charge for shit loads more but lets stick to the simples! ALL the ISPs deny ANY management function which is disengenuous to say the least!! There is a worrying trend in businesses to not only have no usable phone numbers (I had about eight BT numbers when we had the Cisco Router but NONE work anymore) due to the telephony shit that infests what laughly passes for customer service these days. {Thinks: Is there an undisclosed word limit to this field!?!?? I daren't hit return to go to a new para 'cause it might send like the excreble messaging systems which pass for comms in these benighted days!! My point for the designers of Firefox is: when I try to do "Speed test I can count up to FIVE seconds before a Ping is registered which is never more than a 100ms so that's bollocks! Then it doesn't matter how many tabs I have open (often shit loads) the speeds that I get are independant and even when I'm "listening" to radio articles that doesn't effect the results either! A GENUINE speed test should be built into Firefox don't ya think??

Greetings forum -

I have Firefox on automatic update. Last night Firefox auto updated to version 78.0.1 and this update added pre-installed bookmarks suggestions that appear when I click the command line.

These pre-installed bookmarks suggestions are offensive trash like: facebook, twitter, reddit, etc.

I have searched the help section. I have scoured the customize pull down menus. I have looked through the bookmark editor ... and found no clear method of removing these pre-installed bookmarks suggestions.

There MUST be a way to do so. I CAN NOT see facebook, twitter, and reddit in my bookmarks every time I click on the command line.

Does anyone know of a method to remove these pre-installed bookmarks suggestions?

Thanks in advance for your time and knowledge.

I use text replacement strings (System Preferences > Keyboard > Text) for a lot of things, and they work system wide except for in any forms in Firefox!

Is there something I can turn on/off in about:config to allow this?

Is this related to Firefox insisting on using its own spell check dictionary instead of the built in OS dictionary that works in every other app? Can I turn this feature off as well?

Been too many times when I’ve meant to close a bunch of tabs but don’t wanna to close the session restore tab (it’s my only way of accessing the old session tabs) and I accidentally close that session tab as well, thus losing all those old tabs. Is there anyway you guys can make it harder (Maybe with a “are you sure” prompt) before allowing to close that tab?

Also, when I go into history and click “open in new tab” on a link (lets say I’ve scrolled all the way down to find it), one the link opens, the link gets sent to the top of the list in history, thus making me lose the context of where I found the link in history. This is terrible UI, I should be left off where I clicked on the link (with it’s surrounding context (i.e. date, etc)
