I've been using Firefox to store logins and passwords and manage bookmarks on one computer for 10 years+. I always just opened a browser, clicked "tools" then went to my saved passwords. Today I got a new computer and wanted to sync with my Firefox from the old computer. The old computer is asking for a Firefox password, which I don't have (I've tried everything I can think of but I set it 10 years ago). I searched for help online and tried setting a "Master Password." Now, despite entering the EXACT password I selected, it is saying it's wrong and I'm locked out of all of my saved logins on the original computer as well.

I have a secondary email but nothing seems to generate a recovery email (yes, I am stupid and didn't enable recovery key and now I cannot do it because I don't have the password). Is there any way for me to get back into my saved logins? I am using the old computer to work from home and cannot complete any work now. The company sent me a brand new laptop, but all of my logins and passwords are on the old computer tha now wants a master password.

I have been experiencing extreme slow down of Video since last week in May. I'm on Win7 and have System restored 2x, Malwarebytes 1x, Norton full scan is done nightly and the problem has not been found while the symptoms worsen daily. Today I tested Chrome (I prefer Firefox so I ask for assistance to resolve this) and have had no slowing, & I'm viewing the same You Tube Vids. One other item that may be relevant. The yellow info bar which notifies that the site loading hangup is a Website with the user option to stop it or wait. Meanwhile the You Tube I'm watching is the only site I opened, and is not affected by the Stop it selection. Thanks in advance, Paul

Hi all,

I had firefox open with three windows - and a LOT of tabs. It's always bee's set to automatically restore the last session when opened. Somehow after being closed (maybe more than once), I lost one window's tabs entirely - the one with the most tabs - somehow the window was still there, but with only two tabs that I'd never even opened - and all the tabs I had opened and wanted gone. Using history to reopen them all really isn't an option - way too many of them.

I found this information on restoring the prior session: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1279192

And used JSCher2000's webpage https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html and was able to figure out that the session I need, with all three windows and all the tabs I wanted, are in one of the upgrade.jsonlz4-build_id files. They're NOT in the recovery.jsonlz4 file or the recovery.baklz4 file - both of those have the window with only two tabs that I don't want and all the ones I do want gone.

I tried closing firefox, making a backup of the whole sessionstore-backups folder onto my desktop, then going back to the real one, deleting the recovery.jsonlz4 file, duplicating the upgrade.jsonlz4-build_id file, then renaming the duplicate recovery.jsonlz4. When I reopened firefox, it didn't show that window that I wanted, however, it opened just as it had before with that third window having the two tabs I don't want and none of the large number that were there that I do want.

I've included a screen grab of the session store folder, with the file that has all the right windows and tabs highlighted, in case that helps at all.

Help please!

I have had Firfox as my primary browser for years and recently had to reload due to slowness, etc. Since reloading it is very cumbersome on the sign in as have to sign in with email and get a six digit code emailed to me to sign in. There must be a glitch and I am sure there is another way other than giving a code every time sign in . Would appreciate some support in this.

Kindly,

Buenas. Llevo utilizando Firefox casi casi desde Windows 95. Y siempre ha ido fino y buen, con velocidad, sin problemas y con una experiencia superior casi siempre, al resto de navegadores. Pero desde las últimas actualizaciones de Firefox, ésto ha cambiado. Tengo la versión 76.0.1(64 bits). Y llevo mucho mucho tiempo con problemas, que me han cansado y he decidido que hasta aquí he llegado. Tengo instalados además, Chrome y Edge. Chrome me parece pesado, porque abre un montón de procesos que no pido, no necesito y me ralentizan el ordenador. Edge no me gusta. Sí que lo veo ágil y Microsoft le ha lavado la cara mucho. Pero no me gusta, y no me da confianza. Al contrario de Firefox. Pero arrastro los siguientes problemas, para que veáis lo impertinente que soy: 1. Imposibilidad de instalar complementos, como puede ser por ejemplo, el de LetyShop. 2. Muchas veces, la página no carga. Se queda en blanco, intentando acceder, pero nada. La mayoría de las ocasiones, refresco y funciona. Pero, no es lo suyo. 3. No tengo bloqueadores. No tengo anti-pops, salvo los que pueda tener por defecto Firefox. Mi antivirus tampoco los bloquea. Pero muchas páginas me dicen que no pueden abrir ventanas. Son páginas de trabajo (IBM, por ejemplo) donde no creo que haya código malicioso. Y sin embargo, algo impide que Firefox las abra. Antes, era puntual. Ahora es cansino. 4. De vez en cuando, pierdo la sesión abierta. Si. Tengo muchas ventanas. Pero me es imposible recuperarlas porque no funciona el histórico bien, no hay posibilidad de recuperarla entera, y es cansino tener que ir una a una abriendo. Y en la ayuda... bueno. Llamarle ayuda es un decir. Tontería diría yo, porque quien pone esas cosas, lo ha hecho en una versión prehistórica (no coincide a veces ni las opciones del menú que se indica...) y desde luego, no ha probado lo que predica.

Es una pena. Voy a dar un voto de confianza, porque la verdad, tanto en pc como en el móvil, siempre he usado Firefox. Pero me canso de tanto problema. Espero que esta situación cambie pronto. Mientras, voy a buscar un sustituto, que seguramente será Chrome.

Un saludo.

I have followed the instructions for changing settings to prevent sites from asking to allow notifications (as shown in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/push-notifications-firefox#w_how-do-i-stop-firefox-asking-me-to-allow-notifications and many other sites). Yet, despite having repeated these numerous times over the past few months, I continue to receive these requests. When I again open settings, nothing has changed. It still shows the settings configured to block such requests.

So, why am I still receiving requests from sites to allow notifications? Why doesn't the "Block new requests asking to allow notifications" setting work?

Okay, so i visit one of the German language news sites that i visit very frequently, but today i get this: https://www.bild.de/wa/ll/bild-de/privater-modus-unangemeldet-54578900.bild.html Even if i do what they suggest, open a new browser window so that it is no longer in private browsing modes, or if i untick that privacy protection shield at the very left end of the search bar - the dam site does not change to give me the actual contents. I also tried via login to the site, login works - but site still tells me i am in private browsing - but i am NOT. So, what can be done about this (oh, i also added this sites URL into the exceptions list - but, in the window for Exceptions for enhanced tracking protection i can not add anything, why not?? (it just says You’ve turned off protections on these websites) no sites listed no possibility to enter a site).

That is a lot of unwanted hassles i need to resolve this .a.s.a.p. Thanks for help Oh, no plugins that block ads either, i only see the H264 video codec, Flash and a "Widevine Content Decryption module from Google as active plugins.
