I just installed the latest v90 upgrade. I get at least 5 sometimes as many as 7 instances of Firefox running simultaneously. Look at my screen shot of the Task Manager...Holy Sh*t! I attempted to downgrade back to v89, but Mozilla has made this option unbearable ...have to recreate your profile, all your passwords, cookies and bookmarks, an incredible hassle. Stuff like this just shouldn't happen.

Definitely NOT a well-thought out release.

Guess I'll be migrating to Chrome sooner than I thought!?

When I am on a web page for which I wish to use the microphone and camera, the pop up/down up by the URL does indeed show up for authorizing the use of the camera and microphone. However the tick box "Remember this decision" is no longer present.

Once I have hit Allow, the only option that I have when I click on the camera icon to the left of the URL is to click the X next to Allowed Temporarily.

Under Settings/Permissions the Camera does not show the site for which I have given permissions. Interestingly under Microphone the site is in the list under permission but I am still asked when I go to the page.

I have both a built in camera and microphone in this HP but I almost always use my Logitech 9000 as the picture and microphone are much better.

This used to work fine until recently. How do I get the "Remember this decision" option back?

Thank you for your assistance.

So after wiping my system for a fresh windows install, I pulled out the backup.json4 and recovery.json4 from my backup drive and plopped it in place of sessionstore.json4

And all of my tabs and windows came back! So far so good!

But then after closing some tabs and moving things around, when I close the session out again, it doesn't update the sessionstore file, or any of the stuff in the backup folder to reflect those changes.

When I open firefox again it starts as a session with all my windows/tabs after the file-replace.

I use firefox for managing tutorial videos, which involves separating them into different windows/tab arrangements, so any tips on how to resolve this issue and get firefox to start updating the sessionstore would be appreciated.

Thank you!

As we all know the fullscreen mode does exactly what you'd expect, it makes Firefox cover the entire screen, including the taskbar. That's great.

However sometimes I'm running more than one window of Firefox and if only one of the windows is in fullscreen it will cover the taskbar even when I alt-tab to any of the windows that aren't in the fullscreen.

I'll provide a screenshot to show my case. And as you'll be able to see if I mouse-over links in the taskbar they're clickable, so the fullscreen window is still active through the area where taskbar should be once you're running a window that isn't in fullscreen.

That's quite annoying and gets in the way so I'm wondering is that an oversight or a bug (I hope it's not an intended feature) and is there a way to fix that in config or will I have to wait for the developers to fix this in a patch eventually, if they would even want to.

My situation is probably unique but basically, I have a new computer. On my old computer I had a fair few windows open. Because of a lot of different issues (bad battery, no working charger etc.), I have access to the hard drive of my old computer but I can't turn it on anymore and it died before I could reopen most of the windows on my new computer. I'm able to use the hard drive as an external hard drive to transfer everything to the new computer as needed So, I know it's possible to get back bookmarks by transferring the files. I also know that there is a recovery file somewhere in the firefox folder which is used when hitting "Restore previous session" to get back the previous windows Would that mean it's possible to find the file from the old computer's hard drive and move it to the same folder on the new computer to use for the restore function in a similar was as the bookmarks?

I have had a primary/master password set in Firefox for years. It only prompted me to enter it once per session. Since version 90, it now pops up at least once a day at random times to ask for the password again. This has happened on 3 different devices where Firefox is installed.

How can I stop it doing that or at least extend the time to a week? I know there are hidden config options for these, but they look to be on the default values, so have never changed.

After the 90.0.2 update, the bookmarks menu no longer scrolls with the center wheel of my mouse. The center wheel scrolls properly in my emails, on webpages, everywhere else but the in the bookmarks. I have to use the up or down arrows to scroll through them, and it's a royal pain because I have so many bookmarks.

Hi.

I'm a long time firefox user. The past few years, I have not been able to copy text from print preview. This is important to me, as I run a small business and need to copy order numbers from the print preview screen to keep my work flow going. I can do this in chrome, but cannot in firefox.

It is nothing I can copy from a website, as it is a link I click to open the invoice.

The only work around that I know of would be to print the pdf to a file, open the file, and copy it from there - but this is not acceptable because it is too time consuming.

If anyone has something that will work, it would be much appreciated.

Firefox 90.0.2 (64-bit) on Windows 10.

In about:preferences#privacy I have "Block pop-up windows" ticked and 16 websites set as exceptions.

This exception list works in non-private windows, but not in private ones - popups are blocked and I have to explicitly click "options" and then "show".

This bug was introduced a few releases ago - it used to work OK.

After latest update to 90.0.2 I'm no longer able to log in to an internal corporate website. This has worked fine before. Accessing the same site with Chrome or Edge still works fine but no longer with Firefox.

Error message: SSL_ERROR_CERTIFICATE_UNKNOWN_ALERT

I have previously struggled with Certificate with Firefox but after enabled security.enterprise_roots.enabled in Config it has worked fine until now.

So what has changed this time and how to bypass? Obviously the cert/website works fine with other browsers.

Thanks Henrik
