The subject line says it, really: though "Restore previous session" is still ticked in Options, a reboot presented me with just my homepage tabs. Is this, as I hope, an inadvertent bug or a design decision?

I'm using a desktop PC running Windows 7. Many thanks.

Accessing :Politico.com there is a Politico Wuerker cartoon 'list'. The first item is always available. To migrate to any following item on the list I get a "you may skip ad in" with no further text. In the past, refresh would allow the next cartoon to be shown. Now, refresh returns to the first cartoon.

Current operation:

  1. Select the URL above
  2. Select any of the numbered bubbles on the bottom or the right 'arrow'
  3. "you may skip ad in" is displayed.
  4. Select refresh, and we start over.

In the past, refresh would migrate to the next jpg image.

On microsoft edge, in the past, (1) there was a right block arrow, (2) clicking on the arrow gets you to the "you may skip ad in" message, and displayed with this is a check box to allow skipping the ad.

As just a curiosity, why did Firefox elect to change the right block arrow to a rectangular black image?

thanks

I cannot believe they set it like the present way that overrides your existing page as the default. Its like they've never used the browser. Such a bonehead move. Its especially irritating when you've been writing up something, pouring your heart out, then have it whisked away by forgetting that the pinhead designer is going to deem your present page of negligible value and wipe it out as it carries you to the History link. And to think it hasn't been changed in years.

Maybe something in About:Config can override this idiocy? I searched for "history" but didn't see anything that seemed related to this.

Looked it up on Add-Ons but couldn't find anything.

By the way Mozilla, its really time to employ negative filtration in the Add-Ons search. So you can put in a very general term (because you don't want to eliminate possibilities by being specific) then filter out the inapplicable results. Its called a dash and its been used for decades by Ebay and Google. Amazon used to use it but it gave us too much power so that was snatched away a while back. Say you're looking for something that will control the History function. When you search for History almost all the results involve wiping/deleting it. So by using History -wipe -wiping -delete -deleting the results get more relevant to my needs. As they say, cast a wide net if you want to catch big fish. The size of the netting filters out the smaller fish caught.

Before Firefox updated the other day, 88 I believe it is, I was able to go to the menu top right, go to Help, and 'disable extensions' which allowed for greater speed, very little hanging. It's gone now; is it located elsewhere? With the new Firefox, it's taking longer for my start up page to open, as well. TIA

My CPU usage suddenly began topping out when I would launch a Firefox session. I followed advice on-line to remedy the problem and created a new profile then deleted the old profile. As described in the on-line process I was following, when deleting the profile the option came up: "delete files and profile" or "just delete profile". I selected "just delete profile". How can I link the files from the deleted profile to the new one? Also, deleting the profile didn't improve the excessive CPU usage. I'm not very technical.

Thanks for any guidance on either or both issues. RF

Can someone please tell me why Firefox has remove Page Info on the right click?

Sense Firefox doesn't have a setting to set all cookies to "Allow for Session", I have been doing it by my self on every page I see. I right click, select Page info, go to permissions then change "Set Cookie" from default, which is "Allow" to "Allow for Session".

I read their update page before I updated, and no where on the page do they mention removing page info and for what reason.

Does anybody have an idea why?

How do I fix this? Firefox won't start (it did a few days ago).

Version 87 running on Windows 10.

Error Msg: The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found.

There is a file: VCRUNTIME140.dll in the C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox folder.

I reinstalled Firefox but that didn't help.

Until I updated to 88.0 64 bit, when I right clicked on a page there was a link to View Page Info right next to the View Page Source link. Now it is gone. I can get the info page back by right clicking the padlock icon, clicking the arrow, then clicking more info but that is a real PITA. How do I get the link back on page right click. I am 100% sure that this was not done intentionally. That would be very silly and absurd to do.

Recently, a kind volunteer helped me resolve a technical problem I was having with eBay. I have only one start up on my computer now, which is my VPN I have disabled all my Add-ons. I exited out of Firefox, restarted my computer and went directly to ebay and had no trouble signing in or using the site. Yay! I thought it was all fixed. I still wanted to use some very important (to me) add-ons like Ghosterly, and a couple others, which I have had for approximately a year with no problem on ebay. I enable 3 of my favorite addons. I went back to ebay. And, now I can't sign in. They say the password doesn't match. I know that it is correct because I have it written down. When I tried many times, they kept making be "bot verify" When I tried to reset my password, they said I had to chat with someone. I am unable to chat because they say I might have disabled java script. I don't know where to look to see it I have done that. Having a "Senior Moment" here............

....also starting to get frustrated........... grrrrrrr..... I wanted to try to turn on one addon at a time, to see which might be the troublemaker, but never got the chance.

Any thoughts??
