Before updating to Firefox 96, I could close tabs no matter how squished they were. Now I cannot. Someone with a similar problem at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1194322 was able to find help, but I'm not meeting with any success implementing their chosen fix. Is there a way to keep the close tab button active with this many tabs anymore, or is that out?

Can't restore previous session, "recently closed windows" grayed out

Hi

I had two Firefox windows open. One with 100+ tabs and the other with 1 tab. I closed the Firefox with 100 tabs, and then closed the one with 1 tab, without thinking. I then realised that I should have closed them in the opposite order, because I want the 100 tabs to get restored.

I opened Firefox again and was dismayed to see just the single tab get restored. I did some searching and backed up the "sessionstore-backups" folder.

I then tried to close Firefox and replace sessionstore.jsonlz4 with previous.jsonlz4 from the backed up "sessionstore-backups" folder. This did not work, as when I opened Firefox I still only got the 1 tab back and "recently closed windows" remains grayed out. Ctrl+Shift+N does nothing as well.

I used https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html to inspect the backed up previous.jsonlz4 file and it shows

Open Windows Open Window 1 Tab 1 [...]

Closed Windows Closed Window 1 Tab 1 [...] [...] Tab 125 [...]

So the previous.jsonlz4 file does contain my mistakenly closed window but I can't get Firefox to restore the tabs!

Can anyone please help me get my tabs back? I'm on Firefox v96.0.1.

This add-on/extension (and my Fast Fox spelling may be off) is bedeviling me. Apparently part of the latest Firefox update, it seems to appear at startup with our Macbook Air and GMail, asking if it should continue. Cannot find the rascal to get rid of it. Please advise.

Yesterday when I installed the 96.0 update it has forced my background color into a dark grey and ignores the background color setting. I would like to know if there is a setting, add on or update that can return this to normal. The theme I am using has not been updated in 2 years so I am fairly sure the update has caused this.

I just updated to 95.0. I use default Firefox home page with the Search bar. The background turned to black with this update. The background has also turned to black for some of my bookmarks or sites I go to. Settings, Language and Appearance, Colors, Text is Black and Background is White. I have never changed that. How do I get the background back to White?

Firefox pushed an update on me today. When I re-launched after the update, I had none of my bookmarks or plugins!

Logged in using the email account I *believe* I had been using, and two menubar bookmarks appeared, but the drop-down menu is missing everything else I had previously!  :(

Looking in the FF settings folder, it looks like there is a folder with other account settings, but I do not know how to identify which is which, nor do I know how to copy over settings from the other account...

Help?

Thanks,

-Chip

While in the Firefox browser I can no longer display the windows 10 toolbar by moving the cursor to the bottom of the page. This has always worked but started failing recently. Not sure if it was a Firefox update that changed things or something else. Moving the cursor to the bottom of the screen on all windows applications correctly pops up the taskbar. This only happens with the Firefox main screen and any web page linked to with Firefox. The Windows IE works fine.

Through no action of my own, the background color for FF has changed from white to black, which I absolutely abhor. I've wasted a lot of time trying a lot of recommended fixes that haven't work. As much as I like FF, I am now working with Edge in Windows 11. This change will be permanent if I don't find a fix for the FF problem.

Hi,

I downloaded the new Firefox browser a couple of days ago and now I have lost all my bookmarks.

Does Firefox have a recent backup that I can import?

I clicked on 'Bookmarks', then 'Manage Bookmarks', select restore, but the bookmarks are from months ago.

Where are my current bookmarks?

Also, where is the bookmarks icon which was in the top right-hand corner, how do I access the bookmarks in this new version?


Kind regards,

Maria

I've been trying to configure my laptop to suit my needs, which differs from those on desktop. Basically, I trust both devices due to full-disk encryption, but it's possible to steal my laptop while powered on and unlocked. Hence my laptop approach is strict while adding a few exceptions that rely on successful authentication without remembering passwords.

I find it quite hard to manage exceptions. I've spend a couple of hours reading through this forum as well as numerous FAQs and guides, yet it appears there are a lot of conflicting options that override certain settings. The entire process is pretty counterintuitive and could use an overhaul from a UX perspective, where a simplification of the process might also result in the resources becoming more useful.

Anyway, one of my issues is that it appears I can't use asterisk * when defining URL exceptions for cookie settings. Second, unless explicitly defined, the protocol defaults to http and not https. I guess I should ask what happens before complaining too much. Example time:

1: I add the URL 'example.com' 2: Firefox converts it to 'http://example.com' 3: I add the URL 'https://example.com'

How will each of these exceptions work for the following: https://www.example.com https://this.example.com

And how can I mitigate this without a regex or similar, short of manually adding an extensive list of possible variations in between https:// and .example.com? To clarify, I'll need an exception for something like https://*.example.com

Finally, how is this affected by individual settings in the sections Enhanced Tracking Protection, Cookies and Site Data, and History? Any pitfalls I should be aware of?
