Hi. I would like to restore my previous session when I open Firefox (last version of the browser installed). The option is turned on, but nothing happens when I close the browser and I open it again. The support says I should see "Restore previous session" after "New Private Window", but this option is not there. In the history, the list of recently closed tabs is always empty, there are juste one or two links in the recently closed windows (it seems to be a random list). Can someone help me ? I don't understand why it doesn't work. Thank you :)

I saw a post on this where they were instructed to go to safe mode and Viola! it works. That is fine, but it does not fix the problem.

My Firefox browser opens all links except what appears to be links from ads or forwarding links from a site to where something is being sold.

Whenever I click on one of these I get the, "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site." They open fine on Edge. Is there a setting on Firefox that is blocking these?

I'm having problems with 2 websites. One is www.realestate.com.au - I can't search this site at all (I've previously used it thousands of times). The second one is www.gumtree.com.au I've posted items for sale on this site, it will allow me to log into my account but repeatedly boots me off. I've contacted them and they say to delete my browsing history (done) and upgrade my browser (it already is the latest version). I've no idea what to do next. I have no trouble with other websites (to date!).

If I type vodafone in Google search in firefox it shows for only half a second the link to the vodafone website but than it goes 3 or 4 places down and I only get links to other vodafone suppliers. If I type stock Tesla before I got the grafic of Tesla stock and now I have to click to financial to show that because the first 3 links are commercial stock sellers.

This is only a recent development but very very annoing.

I does not happen in Google Chrome.

Hi! I have a company network with about 30 PCs, no domain, but a working internal DNS. There is a server within the network running a webapplication (ASPX). The firewall regulations are very strict, so there are only two hands full of websites reachable from the network. Until now (version 82.x) it was enough to put the adress http://server in the address line of Firefox to open the application. After updating to version 83.0 the server is not reachable anymore, firefox automatically tries to open http://www.server.com "ping server" works, use of \\server in windows explorer and opening an RDP-Connection to "server" works also!

Why is that so and are there any solutions?

Thanks in advance!

Best regards

Hi everybody! Recently I've been signing in an amazon prime account which gives me access to many service. One of them is Prime Video. I've never been able to use Prime with Firefox. It let's me navigate inside the website but when it's time to stream the movie/series/stuff that I choose, it tells me that I can't because I need to get the latest version of Firefox. Well... It's nothing special in this case, since it's just entertainment. But very recently (less than a week) I have the same problem with whatsapp web. And this is quite annoying since I use it for work and to have another browser open makes me slow down on my job. Can you tell me if there's a solution to this? My version of Mozilla Firefox is 83.0 (64 bit) and it says it's the latest. No need to update. Sorry, the pictures are in italian (I'm from Italy). Let me know if you need any help with translation. Thank you in advance!

Hello, FF82.0.2 I want to change and lock the settings "network.cookie.cookieBehavior" and "network.cookie.lifetimePolicy" for user via the mozilla.cfg. Also I'm using the policies.json (which would be my preferred option for changing the network.cookie..., but it doesn't work neither)

But none of them locked or changed the settings for the user. Is this a known problem or are there any other settings, which affect the cookiesettings?

I am really new to this and there were already old configs from another colleague (which has left the company and there are no documentations).

Thank you :)

I mainly use Firefox. I worked offline on a couple of mails on yahoo webmail, intending to send them in the morning. On waking up, I went online to send wanted to send them, but they could not. Needless to say, the texts of those mails have been lost and were not saved as drafts. All my firefox pages, old and new, now open as bare pages, without links, formatting, pics or functionalities. I am not even able to upload here an image of my screen on a typical page. My email is denisbridoux@yahoo.com.

I tried to change some things in about:config which resulted in websites not working properly and reverting the changes wouldn't fix it, so I had to do a refresh of Firefox. The sites work like they used to now.

I'm still confused about Firefox Sync's functionality because when I set it up to sync my tabs it never wants to do it, but immediately after the refresh it downloaded all of my Add-ons right away, which was nice to see. However, my settings/options from those Add-ons are missing, like my uBlock filter lists or various Tampermonkey user scripts.

Is there any way I could recover the Add-on settings from the profile backup which the refresh created on my Desktop? There's a folder called browser-extension-data with some other folders inside, but they're all empty. I tried looking for it myself but couldn't find solutions. I also have a complete profile backup I manually made just before I the Refresh as a safety measure if needed. Thank you very much..!

Backing up and restoring lost tabs

I often experience situations on Firefox where I lose all of my important tabs which I never end up getting back, despite having 'restore previous session' turned on. For instance, it happens when a software forcefully opens a "Thank you for installing" site while Firefox wasn't running, or when I accidentally open a link in a new window while being on private mode, when I meant to open it in a new private window instead..

On a different browser I used before switching to Firefox, I used to resolve this by going to it's profile location and looking at two files named "Current Session" and "Last Session". I could just rename the "Last Session" file to "Current Session", and all of my tabs would return. I was hoping Firefox would have something similar, but it seems either impossible or maybe just a bit more complicated, since I cannot find anything regarding this on the web.

Each time this happens to me, I go to my Firefox profile folder but cannot really find anything regarding sessions I could replace and restore. Only thing I managed to back up from the various important tabs I lost were six files in a fashion like this:

recovery.jsonlz4, upgrade.jsonlz4-[a lot of numbers]

Can I use these files to recover my lost tabs somehow, similar to how I used to do it in the different browser? Hopefully I'm understandable, it's a bit complicated to explain for me.

Okay I just uploaded the new version of firefox I think 83, and every time I restart my computer or anything like that I have to re-log back into EVERYTHING. All my google accounts everything that require a password. It has for the most part my passwords saved but it i a huge hassle especially since I work from home it eats up a lot of time.

It doesn't save my tabs I had left open either. I can get them back when I go to sync tabs but I have to do it one at a time. It literally takes me back to the "Important News: Changes to your Firefox" page every time and its been days and its super frustrating. If I have to do this every time I will have to switch over to chrome which would be a bummer. I have tried fixing it in my preferences section of firefox and made sure everything is lining up there so it should be saving my info but no matter what I do it just takes me back to that page along with my ad blocker and honey page as if it was my first time signing in

Please help I can't do this every time I log in

Hi

I'm an Computer Vision engineer and I migrated from Chrome recently.

The problem is, when I train a neural network and GPU utilization goes beyond 90% Firefox becomes unusable and sometime freeze my whole PC entirely.

I'm not even talking about YouTube or video sites, just new tab is enough to cause problem.

This never happen in Chrome and I'm forced to keep using it every time I need to use GPU.

Is there any tip for this?
