I am regularly using the latest version of Firefox but after doing some research online I decided to reinstall an older version of firefox by clicking Firefox 50.1.0.dmg, a file I found in my downloads as well as well as in the applications folders on my mac.

I was amazed to find when I started this older version of firefox fresh off the reinstall that all my tabs from the last time I used it (perhaps as long as three years ago) popped open and all my bookmarks and history were there as well. However this was short-lived because when i closed it and sought to restore the tabs I was unsuccessful and the bookmarks and history were gone too.

I then thought it would be possible to recreate this by using Time Machine and restore Firefox 50.1.0.dmg file from a recent backup but this did not bring back the tabs.

So I was wondering if this was simply a fluke and if not (is there such a thing as a fluke event when it comes to computers?!), why can I not recreate the event using Time Machine?

If I am signed into a Google account (which we always are, with Gmail) going to a YouTube page will cause the embedded video to not resize appropriately to the size of the window and it will tend to be overlaid over other elements on the page.

Attaching a result of going to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=juJL26dafvs

It is important to copy-paste that into the address bar and not just click on a thumbnail from the main youtube page.

When resizing the window, the video stays in the same position and keeps the same size. Full screen and theater modes also don't work.

This bug does not happen if I am not signed into a Google account.

I have no extensions installed. I have tried to refresh Firefox. I have restarted Firefox in safe mode and the bug still occurs.

I had a laptop with a broken screen and needed repair. Before sending it in, I created a firefox account and synced everything (with the intent to be able to get my bookmarks on a friend's desktop if needed while my laptop was in repair.)

I had only switched from chrome about six months ago, and had not made a firefox account until I was about to send it in for repair. I did not double check that this was working (beyond the fact that it synced successfully), nor did I connect a phone or other laptop, as I figured I would be getting mine back soon, and syncing things was just on the off chance I needed to get a bookmark in the week my laptop was away.

I was then told that the screen was not repairable, and that I would be getting the cost of the laptop as credit to buy a new one. NOT IDEAL. But I figured hey, I save all my files on an external anyways, can reinstall the programs I use, and can sync firefox and chrome to get my bookmarks and history back. None of my files/info was actually lost at this point.

So I did that. Got the new laptop, started reinstalling everything.

Downloaded firefox, logged in to my account to start the sync. It did not load a single bookmark, history, anything, although I had set it to save all of that, and made sure to sync and make sure everything was up-to-date before I sent my original laptop away.

So now I no longer have access to the original laptop, did not plan on this, and I can not manually export bookmarks to transfer them over. Synching firefox is my only hope for getting them back.

I've lost links to wedding planning, research articles, and several more things, and only now, when I started panicking about sync not restoring everything, have I been googling and finding articles warning that sync is should not be used as a backup.

Chrome, on the other hand, restored everything perfectly, but does not have any of the current bookmarks I'd needed and used in the past few months. Y'know, the most relevant ones I'd like to have.

What can I do now, and is there any even slight possibility someone behind the scenes as firefox can find my bookmarks/history saved on a server somewhere? I wasn't able to find a direct email or contact us form to fill out and ask.

Hello,

Since a while i noticed that the aspect ratio of firefox is off. There is a little line on the bottom and left side of the window. It's only a few pixels wide, but enough for my mouse to not recognize it as a window. It's slowly been driving me mad, since i can't click on the far left side of the screen and my cursor stays there when i watch a video fullscreen.

Anyone have any solutions for this?

Thanks in advance!

Yesterday, HP and Windows 10 ran an update and now when I try to open Outlook (Hotmail), I get a very tiny screen that looks like this. I click on my user name and password and then nothing happens. Until yesterday, Outlook opened automatically when selected from my bookmarks. Also, it is now taking a long time for this tiny little screen (as shown below) to open. In addition, I cannot invite participants to Zoom meetings anymore. If I click on "Default email" after "Invite", nothing happens. This, until yesterday, would open Outlook so I could send the invitation. Thank you!!!

My system was acting up so I reset FF and now I see I've lost all my custom menu options for things like Netflix, PayPal, email, etc. The screen is also WHITE...TOO BRIGHT for my eyes. I have FF set as home page as before, but I lost the light grey color I had before the reset. I have searched all over the web and cannot find simple instructions, extensions, or help on how to turn off this awful white glare in the home search page. I have also lost my bookmarks and menu icon. Can you help this 'ol fart..LOL...??! Attached is the image of my desktop with new home page...ALL that WHITE...!!!!

Hi! Since a few months I can't open the opening folder after downloading a file.

Normally, I download a file, then click on the button "open containing folder" on the right of the download file. the default file manager opens up then at the level just above the file downloaded. But, a few months ago, this stopped working: Clicking on "open containing folder" launches the file manager but directly at the level of the file: And this makes the file manager launches the file by the way with the default program.

Settings: Arch Linux, Firefox 79

Hi there,

I recently upgraded to a MacBook Pro 16, and installed the Firefox browser as usual. Every time I launch Firefox now, I must "Sign in to sync," and input my Firefox Account password (not my Master Password) in order to access my homepage, saved logins, etc. This was not the case with my older MacBook Pro, where I was automatically signed in on launching the browser.

What do you recommend?

Thanks in advance.

This started when Firefox updated to 79. Now, after I open Gmail, a minute or so later, usually after reading or replying to an email, Gmail disconnects from the internet connection. I get a message at the top of the screen,

When I exit Gmail. it asks if I am sure I want to leave the page. This indicates to me that there is an action pending in Firefox or Gmail. When I restart Gmail, the messages that I deleted are still available, marked as read. These may be the pending actions that generated the "Are you sure" message. Once Gmail exits, nothing else works in Firefox, The only way I can continue is to close and restart Firefox. I do not have the problem in other browsers.

I can't figure out, though, how to open the saved-named folder to open the address that I need.

Duh, it's probably a simple procedure.

Thank you for taking the time to explain the way to do that.

I tried setting webpage through the method I knew, i.e Go to Menu->Preferences->Home and set the Homepage and new windows settings to the URL you want.

But the bug is that, when I close Firefox and then open it fresh, it starts a blank page and does not load my required homepage. I have to click the home button.

When I already have Ff window open and I start a new window then it loads up my home page but, that redundant, since I could have opened the page I want in the first place.

Is there a solution to this?

Please help. Thank You.
