I'm using a new laptop so everything is a fresh install. A few of the newsletters I've signed up for are now using GetResponse for their marketing. Any link I click on in these emails leads me to a "The page you're looking for doesn't exist" error 404. No matter what I try (disabling all extensions & setting Firefox's config setting 'extensions.blocklist.enabled' to false). Both of the companies that send the newsletters as well as GetResponse don't really seem to care and just blame Firefox. Can anyone help me fix this... if in fact it's something on my laptop that's creating the issue? I only use Firefox browser... nothing else and would hate to starting using some unsafe browser just to access these links. Thanks.

I want to know what caused the Firefox icon to disappear from my dock and be replaced by the generic icon. Firefox seems to continue to work well. I don't want to re-install it when it seems to work. However, I want to know what caused this to happen and if there is an easy way to restore it to the unique icon. I've read about the various remedies but don't want to take the time for a re-install when everything seems to be working.

Please just tell me the cause and if there is an easy solution.

I've just rebooted and I've lost two windows with thirty tabs, or something.

When I started Firefox, there's nothing in the Recently Closed [Tabs, Windows]

Reading online, I see that Firefox should be writing some files to the sessionstore-backup directory, like these:

recovery.jsonlz4: the windows and tabs in your currently live Firefox session (or, if Firefox crashed at the last shutdown and is still closed, your last session) recovery.baklz4: a backup copy of recovery.jsonlz4 previous.jsonlz4: the windows and tabs in your last Firefox session upgrade.jsonlz4-build_id: the windows and tabs in the Firefox session that was live at the time of your last update

, but I only find recovery.jsonlz4 and recovery.baklz4 and both are tracking current time, which means they are getting data from the currently opened Firefox.

These are the only files I find in this directory.

Where are the other files supposed to have gone?

Greetings...

Yesterday, my laptop was functioning without difficulty. Today, when I logged into Windows 10, instead of my usual profile/desktop appearing, a default profile/desktop appeared.

I performed a system restore using the most recent restore point (two days ago). The system restore completed successfully and upon restart and login, my usual profile/desktop appeared.

However, my installation of Firefox no longer completely exists. In the C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox directory, many of the files that customarily exist no longer appear, including firefox.exe.

Most certainly, I do not want to lose any of my bookmarks, open tabs, or custom settings that I have established in my Firefox over many years of use. What would be the best way for me to restore Firefox on my laptop, while preserving all of my bookmarks, open tabs, custom settings, etc?

Would a simple reinstall of Firefox accomplish this task, without my losing any of my bookmarks, open tabs, custom settings, etc? Or, is there something else that I should do?

I would sincerely appreciate your feedback regarding this problem. Thank you!

Hi folks,

Forced to update (expected) and 102 ran like two flat tires and no spare whil eI had no issues with 91. MANY hours of searching got me reasonably successful in acceptable performance. But two problems, one which could easily be a bug:

1. I can find no way including in about:config to enable lazy tab loading. In other words, open a group but not load each tab until it is clicked on.

Where did that go?

2. This one is more unique. I have a desktop install of ESR and a portable ESR install on a thumb drive. For MANY years I backed up bookmarks on my desktop and restored them to FF on my thumb drive. Now, after I shut down the portable (which takes a very long time) there are multiple bookmarks. Html files that seem to merge on shutdown. Problem is, on the thumb drive this is not completed before FF shutdown and the processes closed. Results in damaged bookmark files and a crash EVERY time.

IF I drag the copy of FF ESR portable to my desktop and perform the same procedure, no problems. So somehow on a USB 3 thumb drive the process of merging bookmarks. Html files is too slow and will cause a crash consistently.

Any suggestions or should I file a bug report?

The VA is updating their website which is a joke. When I try to login to their website it puts me into a loop which keeps asking me to verify my ID. Frustrated, I changed back to Google and it worked fine. I don't know how to fix this or explain the problem anymore, but I really like FF but things like this makes me hesitant to continue to use it.

Hola, El "nss internal pkcs #11 module" que está instalado no me deja cargar el certificado del DNIe. He intentado descargarlo pero me dice que "no es posible desargar el módulo". Lo que necesito saber es cómo pueso "descargar" o desinstalar el "nss internal pkcs #11 module"

(He instalado un nuevo módulo que sí que me deja cargar el certificado. El problema es que cuando me conecto a alguna de las páginas oficiales en las que necesito identificarme con el DNIe me da error y creo que es porque el nss internal interfiere de algún modo.)

Os agradezco de antemano vuestra ayuda.

I was checking to make sure I was using the correct version of Firefox browser. I ended up on a page that stated "It looks like you haven’t started Firefox in a while. Do you want to clean it up for a fresh, like-new experience? And by the way, welcome back!" It went on to ask if I would like to Refresh Firefox, just like it was brand new.

In the Menu option on any Firefox page I can get on it states: "Account Disconnected". I have been using Firefox just about every day for 3 years. What is going on. I didn't dare click on the "Refresh Firefox" tab because I have no idea what will happen. Will I lose everything, bookmarks, settings, etc.?

Please help

I had to emergency shut down due to a storm. After the reboot of my Mac Firefox will not open, even while holding down power key. This is a constant problem I run into and am not finding a solution. I'm having to use safari to get to you. All I get is a spinning wheel/firefox is not responding and I have to force quit. All I have ever used is Mozilla but am going to have to give up and use safari. It at least works.
