Firefox was hanging up. I got frustrated and I ended the session using task manager. On restart my windows came back, but the tabs were missing the page information. I ended the firefox session again, and did a restart of windows for good measure, hoping to get everything restored.

Then, when windows restarted, I restarted firefox, and I was presented two options - SAFE MODE, or REFRESH. I did SAFE MODE. Things looked ok, so I ended that session, and tried restarting again, hoping to restart normally, without SAFE MODE on. I got the same two options again - SAFE MODE or REFRESH. So, I thought REFRESH would get me back to my prior session. Nope. That reloaded a bunch of things, like bookmarks, etc. and gave me a new session.

So, I looked under the three line menu. No ability to RESTORE PREVIOUS SESSION!

I also looked in my profile as found in ABOUT:SUPPORT - PROFILE FOLDER, and in my SESSIONSTORE-BACKUPS folder in my profile folder my RECOVERY.baklz4, and my RECOVERY.jsonlz4 have todays date as DATE MODIFIED, but only are 33kb each - way to small for the hundreds of tabs I had open in multiple windows - I believe.

So, do I have any other recovery session folders available that I might be able to use?

For years, the dark theme I used would apply to all pages, including about:newtab and about:home. About a month ago, this stopped happening, and regardless of choosing a theme that turns the background of the about:home page dark, it reverts to a white background the next time the browser is started.

I also use an add-on called Dark Reader, which gives me some control over the background of most websites. This extension is where the information that the about:home page is "protected by browser". I have not tried disabling Dark Reader, yet.

On the Firefox Options page, under the Home tab, under New Windows and Tabs, the options for "New tabs" include only two (2) choices: Firefox Home (default), or Blank Page. The dark background works (i.e., sticks, holds, stays) on the blank page, but does not work for the Firefox Home (default), which is what I have chosen and prefer. I choose only Top Sites on the Firefox Home Content settings, which are displayed below the "New tabs" settings described above.

Any help in restoring the dark (or consistent theme color) to the Firefox Home or about:home page will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Two weeks ago I reloaded Windows 10 because of a suspected malware infection. This required me to reload my apps. After reloading Firefox the custom icons have disappeared from some, but not all of the toolbar menu items. Why? Rather, a little globe appears, which I'm guessing is a default icon. -- Why did some of the icons disappear while others did not? -- How do I remove the "little globes" as they're just taking up space and have no meaning -- Where do the custom items come from?

Since reinstalling Windows, I can no longer change my bookmarks in the order I want. Every time I try to put the bookmarks in order, the links jump back to a different position. However, not in an alphabetical order, but according to my own rules, completely confused. So I have to look for everything now. What can trigger something like that?

Hello.

When I use Firefox to open a .pdf file that is long and "heavy" (it's a 600 page book scan with OCR), searching with Ctrl+F gets sloppy. Searching clearly skips some of the appearances of the phrase. I compared the results with other .pdf readers as well as Chrome. The latter one, for example, brings 190 search results while Firefox makes it 172. With more specific search, it's 3 to 2 or sometimes 1 to none.

I believe the reason is that file doesn't load entirely upon opening - rather, it loads pages as I'm scrolling. Even though Firefox has some useful features as a .pdf reader that Chrome lacks, like two pages view, this flaw alone kind of kills it for some uses.

Is there any fix for this? Like maybe forcing Firefox to load an entire document at once?

Cheers, Rafał

I have a website, a typical three column design, with NAV, MAIN and ASIDE elements. A reader view option appears in Firefox, but ironically, only the ads in my ASIDE element show up when I click it.

The MAIN content uses SUMMARY/DETAILS to group things. Personally, I would think this combination would scream reader view content, yet MAIN is ignored entirely. It has some links, but so does my ASIDE (advert) content.

My ads are simple blurbs and links, no pictures, for my own ebooks, and are not served by a third party, so I can see how they could get picked up and I'm fine with that. What puzzles me is why the MAIN content is being ignored.

The site in question is: https://waxphilosophic.sdf.org/erotica/ It is marginally safe for work provided you do not click any of the links. No explicit images.

As a test, I even tried changing the SUMMARY/DETAIL of my "What's New" section to ARTICLE followed by an H2 heading. No change in behavior. https://waxphilosophic.sdf.org/erotica/test.html

The HTML passes the W3 validator. I searched Firefox Help / Stack Exchange. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi guys,

So, a while ago, I followed a privacy guide to make firefox even more private. But since I followed that, everytime I open firefox, it opens small, and not maximized. Also every time I closed it, it logs me out of all my accounts.

This are the things I changed: link text

Greetings everyone,

I know this might be a strange question, but I'm completely serious as I've been feeling soooo much anxiety around it.

I need to download a couple hundred individual files.

My basic question is this: How can I verify that the files I download are 100% completed?

Is there any way for me to be 100% certain that the files I've downloaded have been successfully downloaded?

I'd really appreciate any advice.

When I switch my Firefox to fullscreen it overlaps onto the taskbar (as you see in the picture I attached below) Can someone help me fix this? Turning on the Titlebar fixes this but I don't want the Titlebar to be on. This is a seriously big and annoying issue. I have tried reinstalling and refreshing my browser and even disabling windows color from being applied to the taskbar but it doesn't help. Its as if Firefox has an extra piece to it in fullscreen. If I click on the taskbar it overlaps back onto Firefox but then if I open start (as you can see in the second picture) that extra piece of Firefox is still there.
