I Lost my FF session, (not sure what I did, but the menu toolbar shortcuts were gone & I cold not 'click' them back, so I figures I would just reboot FF.

Some dialog box popped up (I don't recall exactly what the box said, but offered me a choice to CANCEL or CONTINUE. I hit CONTINUE. FF Shut down, and when it reopened a couple of my FF windows were missing, but the toolbar shortcuts were restored.

So, I figured I would restart FF a 2nd time. Well, still missing a few windows. FF session still open.

I am looking at the session files, and trying to determine which session file do I copy, and to where, to try and get old session restored, if I can?

I tried loading the larger 58,175 KB file from 7/16/21, and it crashed the scrounger page.

I am loading a smaller in 56,853 KB file from 10/8/21 (today's date) into your SCROUNGER page, and it has been running for 10 minutes now.

I thought it might be simpler to just copy or rename the correct file (after backing them all up) into the file that will be used after I close, and restart my current FF session & just look and see what FF opens. I just don;t recall which file FF uses for each new startup. Is it recovery.jsonlz4? previous.jsonlz4? something else?

I've uploaded an image, of the screen capture, of a few of my most recently dated session files, in this folder:

Greetings,

I just updated to Firefox 78.15.Oesr and now am unable to reorder my open windows. As a student, I may have several projects open at a given time, and like to have the project I am currently working on, next to the open Firefox window, for quick navigation between the browser and project. This option seems to have been disabled with the update. It is enough of a deal breaker that I may pursue reverting to the previous version of Firefox.

Also, the inability to delete bookmarks, and to close the bookmark window after selecting "show all bookmarks," remains a persistent frustration that I am surprised has not been addressed. With so many browser options available, these subtle annoyances are enough to prompt me to again shop around for alternatives, after being a Firefox devotee for over 10 years.

Thank you for your help, Josh Baker

Hi,

Recently whenever I watch any video, wether it'll be on YouTube, Twitter, Reddit etc. my ping will instantly shoot from ~20 to anywhere from 100-200. I have tried everything from restarting it, removing all my extensions etc. and nothing seems to work.

I have tested it and it only happens when a video plays, even if I minimize the browser it will still happen.

What do you suggest I do? Because I can't use my browser for the main reason I use it for.

Thanks.

Greetings!

I have Firefox for my browser and the home page is set to my.yahoo.com.

I cleared my browser and lost all my my.yahoo.com home page bookmarks and customized yahoo mail folders. I still have my Firefox bookmarks.

Can I retrieve the lost emails and bookmarks that were on yahoo? I did try restoring a previous Firefox version and also opening Firefox on a different browser, (Internet Explorer), and tried using a different computer, but Yahoo mail and bookmarks are still missing.

Bummed boomer!

I don’t know. I changed my default browser in settings but Safari continues to show up on my iPhone.

I downloaded Google Authenticator but I don’t know what to do with it. I’m terribly confused! I just don’t know what I’m doing, and I don’t know what I am supposed to do. I did get a recovery key however. Please help me if you can. I get so confused when I read your instructions. The instructions say to click on so and so and I don’t know what to do or where to find what I’m supposed to click on.

French expat in Asia I noticed that since the launch of this free website, Firefox 93.0 running with macOS Big Sur 11.6 is unable to connect properly with the French TV5MONDEplus website. Access to the site is entirely possible but the connection seems to stop as soon as you try to view the programs offered… This problem doesn't arise by using Chrome.

I am constantly unable to access websites. My data seems to clog up. I'm in my 70's and have no patience or training for sifting though numerous fixes and possible solutions. I've done my best with no improvement. My husband is having the same issues on his computer. All my previous efforts erase my sign ins and require me to constantly enter new sign in information for my common websites. I can use Safari and Chrome without these issues so unless I get some form of personalized help that doesn't require a great deal of technological skill, I'm leaving this browser greatly disappointed in the lack of support.

To repeat, when i click a link in osx, two firefox windows open. One contains the link I intended to open, and the other displays my set homepage. This has happened on my old iMac and when I migrated to my new iMac back in April. I just purchase a new MacBook Pro and decided to do a completely fresh install of what I needed for portability use. I did however use Firefox Sync to load everything that I have in Mozilla (bookmarks, add ons...) the same on both computers. After that the two windows opening started happening again. So I'm sure it has to be something simple that I need to change which was also synced to this new machine. Can anyone help?

Thank you in advance

Hello, A folder titled 'Old Firefox Data' keeps appearing on my desktop. I googled when it orginally happened and after reading the help articles decided deleting it was alright. I had refreshed Firefox and wasn't concerned about deleting anything important. Now everytime I restart my computer a new folder with the same name appears. This wasn't happening before and doesn't seem normal. Thanks!
