This happens in Facebook when I try to play a game: "The address wasn’t understood Firefox doesn’t know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (fb-messenger) isn’t associated with any program or is not allowed in this context. You might need to install other software to open this address."

Recursive links

Trying to get help for another problem I'm finding that requests on FF help lead back to the request info page, rather than to solutions!

So up until firefox updated... yesterday? day before? not sure my circadian Rhythm is a total mess at the moment. but ever since that most recent update picture in picture doesn't pop up on netflix anymore?

i can still use it on YouTube and Prime Video, the only other sites i use it on really, but not Netflix?

as you can see, the icon appears fine on youtube, but on the netflix screenshot, it does not.

dead annoying since watching a show with picture in picture while grinding in a windowed game is a poor gamer's second screen.

Today my PC switched off after an accidental power disconnection. Previously if such an event would happen, upon restart Firefox would ask if I want to restore previous session after "a crash" (also showing a sad bear icon) and i would restore my previous session successfully. Alternatively, I would manually press the "restore previous browsing session" button in the menu (if not prompted automatically to do so upon starting Firefox). However, today, after the disconnection, when I tried starting Firefox, it first ran some update before opening up and didn't give me the window asking if I want to restore previous browsing session. The button for restoring previous browsing session manually in the menu was also greyed out. Somehow the option/preference to restore previous session seems to have been unselected (but not by me!)... I have already tried working with some solutions I found through Google searches about this problem and posted on this forum (including working with previous.js - a file which I can not find) but I haven't been successful though I am not sure if I was getting everything stated right. In the sessionstore-backup folder I could only find recovery.js and recovery.bak files only, nothing else, despite folder settings being set to show hidden files. I must note though that my browsing history is still there, and again, having already opened my Firefox once, I have not closed it again so it's still running on the first instance (currently on the latest version of Firefox) after the crash/restart/update/failed-restore-of-previous-browsing-session...I hope that's hopeful :(

Please help, I had critical stuff I was working on through multiple tabs over the past "few months" and it would be a nightmare to try and comb through the history to restore it piece by piece considering that it shows even the stuff I had closed and was no longer working with...restoring the session would greatly help  :(

When I create a tab by clicking on a link, normally the tab will open to that link after a small delay. But some tabs just sit there, seemingly dead to the world. I've tried refreshing by hitting enter, or when possible (which it usually isn't) the refresh button on the taskbar, but nothing happens.

If I create a new tab, and cut and paste the link from the old one to the new one, usually the new one will open right away (after the usual delay). Meanwhile, the old one just sits there.

This has happened before (in much earlier versions of Firefox) in a small percentage of cases, but it is now happening with some frequency. I am currently using version 78.0.1 (64-bit).

As the title says, every time I press ctrl, the bookmarks sidebar opens. I've checked what my shortkeys are and it shows that the bookmark sidebar should be opened with ctrl+b, but it opens and closes every time I just press ctrl. This makes it impossible to use any other shortkeys and it's driving me insane. Why is it doing this and how do I change it?

Up until a few months ago I was able to read and leave my own comments on a local news website. Not sure what changed, but that option is gone. I had read that it was a Facebook social plug-in which allowed the comments to work so I assume that's where my problem is. It does work when I use IE, and I did find a site that lets me comment using a workaround: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/comments/ (I'm not a developer so I can't figure out how to fix things from the info given here). The news site I am trying to make comments on is: https://www.channel3000.com/ At the bottom of the page with the news article where I'd normally see comments I now just see the word COMMENTS twice (see attached image). I did clear my cache, delete cookies for the news site and for Facebook (and then pressed the "accept all cookies" button), and disabled plug-ins one at at time to see if they were the issue. No luck.

Can anyone help please?

Firefox usually works great, but starting last night it has been messing with my computer like crazy.

I have a wireless mouse, and a Wacom tablet/pen. Everything has worked fine, but starting last night I had to Restore Down the Firefox window with the Wacom because nothing happens when I try with my mouse. Once the window is has been Restored Down, my mouse freezes, and I have to go into Task Manager with the keyboard to get it to work again. I then have to use my Wacom as a mouse if I want to click something in the taskbar, the mouse for the start menu and any non-Firefox programs, and Firefox will just not work at all. I can't switch/open new tabs, I can't click the address bar, or the search bar, I can't go to a different site, or anything.

I have to open Task Manager to close out Firefox, then everything works fine. I reopen Firefox and it works fine except not being able to use the Minimize, Rrestore down, and Close buttons without using my Wacom, and then when I do, the cycle repeats.

I have tried unplugging things, putting in new batteries, nothing has worked and I don't know what could be causing this issue when Firefox has worked great for me all these years. I'm currently running a virus scan on my PC, but I don't see why it would ONLY be effecting Firefox.

Firefox now forces PDFs, even downloaded ones, to be opened in-browser. Frustrating is this setting has been introduced and right away replaced previous behaviour without any preceding notice, perfectly fine settings, now requiring to go to file explorer to open a PDF as if it was a file. How to disable this bloat?

I used to have an extension. But after removing it I still see its setting in about:config. I don't want to clutter my Firefox's profile. Look at the screenshot.

1. Is it safe to remove all these setting manually? 2. How can I confirm that all the unnecessary data is removed? (including sqlite databases, etc...) 3. Isn't it a responsibility of an extension's developer to remove all the settings when a user removes it? 4. If I install hundreds of extensions and then I remove them, will they remain in my profile after deleting?

I downloaded the newest update and now pages are loading with only text or barely anything at all. Some sites work and others don't. I know this problem happened in previous versions and there was a fix for it. Do you know how to fix this problem? Thanks.

Bonjour,

Je rencontre un problème très curieux avec Firefox depuis plusieurs semaines. Uniquement avec la version PC et uniquement sur le site Linkedin.

Dès que j'ouvre Linkedin, c'est comme si la page était rafraichie plusieurs fois (3, 4, 5... ?) avant de se stabiliser.

Si j'ouvre des onglets supplémentaires (par exemple pour lire un post avant de revenir à mon fil d'actualité), les différentes onglets se rafraichissent également.

Cela ne se produit pas sur mon smartphone Android. Cela ne se produit pas non plus sur PC avec Chrome.

Merci de vos suggestions. De quels renseignements de configuration avez-vous besoin ?
