I notice some reported this problem in 2020, in a post that's been archived.

I reported it previously in a different post, but I may not have provided enough information. I am using currently 91.10.0esr (64-bit) on openSUSE Leap 15.3 Linux.

When I right click on a web page, and choose "Save Page As..." from the menu that appears in response to the right click, then choose "Web Page, complete (*.htm *.html)" as how to save the page, Firefox goes through some process, something is placed on the disk drive. But often, the status of the download shows as "Failed". That is until I retry the download. I've even been able to "Show all downloads" and click on an icon to retry it, sometimes days or weeks later, without even re-visiting the web page which was originally saved, but after clicking on the icon to retry saving the page, the status shows as "Completed". It could just be an issue with Firefox reporting the status, rather than an actual failure.

Is this a "bug"/"error" in the program code for Firefox? If so, is there someway to report it, or will this post serve as such a report?

I'd appreciate any helpful thoughts.

A few days ago I opened my monitor and was greeted by Firefox, already open, with the session erased. No clue how or why.

I found this thread [restore firefox session]. Very helpful.

I solved the problem by copying the latest upgrade.jsonlz4 file in the sessionstore-backups folder, renaming the copy as sessionstore.lsonlz4, renamed the original to sessionstoreold.jsonlz4, and replaced it with the copy in the main profile foider. It worked fine.

The only problem was the backup file was 2-3 days old, so there is a disparity between the content of the latest erased session, and the tabs from the backup.

I'm confused why there wouldn't be a backup created whenever the browser is closed, or something to that effect.

Is there no way to increase the frequency of created backups, and the quantity of of theses backups?

Hi fellows.

I'm using Firefox accounts for long time, to be specific from Created ⁨6/26/2015⁩ as my Firefox account page says at password field, And lately starts to notice that a lot of saved logins and some history are missing. I have checked when oldest Last Modified item, it appears to be from Last modified: October 5, 2018 So, there is at least 3 years of lost data. Is it something normal!! Or its because i have a limited saving i guess. Or apparently logins and history older than 5 years are removed!? Please i want more details about these things, if as i guessed that 5 years old data will be removed, i have to save them in another sources. it maybe an issue in my PC i can fix and get these old data.

Really thank you and appreciate your time. Thank you.

After last or previous update, Firefox does not load home page. Get message with last tabs:

Sorry. We’re having trouble getting your pages back.

We are having trouble restoring your last browsing session. Select Restore Session to try again.

Still not able to restore your session? Sometimes a tab is causing the issue. View previous tabs, remove the checkmark from the tabs you don’t need to recover, and then restore.

Did all this it is still happening. Last time removing some file folder did not correct. Do not want it to restore last session!

What is causing this?

Hello, my logins are gone since yesterday. about:profiles gives me just 1 profile. in the profile folder there is the logins.json and the key4.db file but it wont load the two files when I start firefox. They contain 100+ logins.

All the troubleshoot sites say, I should make sure, these two files are in the main profile folder and they are. The two files also dont seem corrupted.

When I first launch firefox, I see all the images on my Yahoo homepage (Yahoo is set to my homepage on firefox).

But, when I clear history, and re-launch firefox, not all the images are there. Sometime very distorted pages come up.

I have a Dell inspiron laptop, and I spoke with the Dell technician, who refreshed firefox--that didn't work.

Then he re-installed firefox.

That didn't work either.

He checked all firefox settings, and they are correct.

In addition, when I use firefox, and search by sender I receive a message indicating "an error occurred.. retry"

Again this does not happen in Chrome. I DON'T with to use Chrome as my default browswer; I have always used firefox.

When I "retry", the list from the senders I have searched does come up. But this was never an issue. I contacted Yahoo Mail help, and they suggested contacting you.

When I first launch firefox, I get all the images. But if I clear history and re-launch, may images are not there on my Yahoo homepage--just empty boxes.

My husband has an Acer desktop, and he does not have this problem. I don't know what the difference is.

I do not know what is going on--I would like to know what to do. Or will it resolve itself eventually (perhaps with the next firefox update?)

This is issue does not appear to happen with Chrome, but I use firefox as my main browser.

Please assist as soon as possible, as I indicated, I use firefox as my main browser.

I have attached some images.

I have a habit of keeping a number of pages open to return to under iPhone iOS Firefox. I also generally keep one “current” page open, usually a DuckDuckGo search page, when I close the app, expecting it to come up again immediately when I reopen it. For the past couple of weeks however, reopening Firefox blasts me about 10 miles up into one of my “saved” pages, instead of my “current” one. Why? Why won’t Firefox remember my current page after years of doing so just fine?

The message about the "Browser being managed by your organization" that shows up in Firefox settings, is new. I've been using Linux mint with Firefox for over a year on my own personal laptop and this message just showed up in my Firefox settings kind of out of the blue.. Can it be related to version 100? I was just trying to do something online. totally unrelated to the Firefox settings, and now I've spent a considerable amount of time trying to get rid of this policy. I tried to set the AppUpdate policy to true, but it still will not allow me to check for updates in the settings, or if I go under help, about. I do not use the laptop often, so this is the first time I've been unable to check for updates, and I would prefer not to have an enterprise security policy running on my personal laptop. I do not know how it came to be on the laptop but any help removing, or resetting the controls would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, I have Firefox installed running under Windows 10. I have a number of extensions installed including Firefox Containers. I have had to change my router. When I restart my system with the new router connected to the internet and open Firefox I find that I cannot open any websites assigned to personal containers.

I switched back to my old router and everything works ok - I can open all sites including those assigned to containers.

When I switch back to usuing my new router however I again find I cannot access sites assigned to containers - error message is “Secure Connection Failed”.

I’ve removed the Firefox container extension.

Using my old router I can connect to all websites in the normal expected manner - none show they are assigned to Containers.

Using my new router however I still find that having opened Firefox I cannot access any website previously assigned to a Container. If I use another browser (Edge), trying to open a website previously assigned to a Firefox Container simply opens my router home page.

It would appear therefore that despite having removed the Firefox Container extension, when I boot up and connect to the internet via my new router there is still information stored somewhere on my system which is preventing my accessing websites previously assigned to containers.

How do I remove all necessary information from my system so that I can access all websites?

Thanks for your help

Really? - also every time I go on line I get another stupid sign at the top right telling me to update again. I'm being pestered to do something that screwed me over. - I’ve tried the (old firefox date folder, thing) and it didn’t work. (so please don't suggest that) - I have to go looking for what bookmarks I have left (no more drop-down menu with all of them right there where over the years I've organized them)

I used to like this program, a lot. If I can’t get my Book marks back I’m done with FireFox. What the hell were you thinking?
