Firefox lockup on Yahoo Mail and failed session restore

I am currently using a Yahoo Mail account and have been for years but recently when on the yahoo mail page I get a red notification tellimg me I'm not connected to the internet on the tab displaying Yahoo Mail.

All other open tabs are able to access the net with no problem.

The only way to clear the issue is to open task manager, select all user info whereupon I will see one or two entries under Firefox using massive amounts of memory, i.e most open windows will have between 4.000k and 10.000k allocated but the top two entries arranged under memory use will both be firefox showing around 13.000.000k and 1.500.000k but with no information to identify which tab in firefox is using that amount.

If you select the 13.000.000 and end process, it ends that entry and nothing happens, if you then end the 1.500.000 process it crashes firefox and every single tab and window closes.

Restart firefox and it will open with the session restore page, hit restore existing session and watch the pages reopen and one iteration will head for the 13.000.000 mark again and Yahoo will not load at all.

It usually takes one or two more crashes until the session restores and Yahoo Mail loads and opens as if nothing has happened.

Today however after 4 attempts I eventually got a cannot find server notice on the yahoo page so I hard reset my router and after manually diabling and re enabling my network adapter my computer re-established a newtwork connection but when I restarted Firefox again the restore session was greyed out and only the new session button was available.

In the new session it loaded Yahoo mail immediately and when I tried to see if I could manually restore the session using the top right menu button, there is no session restore information or button at all.

Go to the history tab and there are no closed tabs or windows ( both greyed out) but the recent history display and the history itself is showing all the previousl pages.

I searched online and found this link https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1267353#:~:text=If%20your%20tabs%20disappeared%20and%20the%20previous%20session,3.%20Close%20Firefox%20Delete%20sessionstore.jsonlz4%20file%20More%20items but none of the information in it matches anything in my file system even though I too am still using Windows 7. This is the version in the update history Firefox 108.0.2 (20230104165113) Details Installed on: 6 January 2023 at 15:40:33 Status: The Update was successfully installed

Can anyone help with the why one particular tab in firefox keeps trying to monopolise memory use for itself and how to stop it, and whether there is any way to recover the previous session information as I can't find anythig remotely relating to it on my system at all:-(

Thanks

You can see from the first image that I had unchecked the "Block pop-up windows". But then if a page wants to pop up the windows like running "for(let i = 0; i < 24; i++) window.open("about:blank")", the result will be the second image. Firefox still keeps blocking despite my setting. And there is no even option like "allow the pop-ups" in the Options menus on the info bar.

Hello all, First of all thank you for the good quality of mozilla products. I am using mainly firefix and thunderbird on linux (Ubuntu) on all my computers, that of my children and of any friend I can convert to open-source computing.

I have done all possible documented actions to configure firefox for blocking pop-ups, including standard (permissions in privacy & security settings) and advanced (filter on autoplay parameters in about:config) options available. I keep receiving pop-up windows with unwanted videos, e.g. on my paid subscription to a local news website. See the attached screen capture, where I right-clicked on the pop-up window. You will see that a "digiteka" player keeps appearing and I never sollicited these videos. I hate this. It's not even pub, it's news, but when I'm reading an article I don't want to be bothered with other news that I'm not interested in. Plus, I don't want any unauthorised software like this digiteka player running on my computer without my permission. It's not a firefox module, it's probably silently downloaded over my connection with my news provider with no notice. I could go as far as blocking autoplay so the video will not start playing automatically, but I would like to completely block the apperance of such windows and any download of something executable on my computer. What could I do in addition? I there any way, other than stopping my subscription to this site?

Many thanks for your help. Patrice.

As of recent I've been having troubles with my Firefox browser. Out of nowhere it has started relentlessly purging my browser history to the point where nothing lasts more than a week now before getting deleted, and it is only getting worse. Prior to this Firefox would save data from over a year and simply just remove the oldest data in order to make room for the newest whenever necessary. That is no longer the case now.

I'm fairly certain that I haven't done anything to cause Firefox to do this, but I can't be sure. Looked in the settings and can't see anything that would cause this.

So my questions are: 1.) Can the history deleted be recovered? and 2.) Is it possible to get Firefox to stop purging my history on it's own so frequently?

Any and all help is appreciated.

I can't save an image with an asterisk in the filename when saving from my Firefox browser. I used to be able to, but now any asterisk I add to the filename just vanishes like I didn't type it at all. I can change the file name in other ways, like adding words. I can still save from Chrome, so it's a Firefox issue, and a recent update. Help!!!

Tabs, history, bookmarks, basicly anything and everything that was crucial are gone, seemingly after recent update. I had similar problem a couple of month ago and didn't find clear solution back then, but it all got sorted out maybe in couple of days (probably with next update or something?). Well who would've thought i would get screwed like that a second time.

So i can't tell for sure whats caused it or how it got fixed. What i manged to figure out both times this happend is that somehow i have 2 versions of Firefox Profiles judgin by the dates of the cursed updates. So i guess my stuff is still there but i can't acces it.

Also worth mentioning is that both times i've got screwed by updates, my FF shortcuts from Quick Acces pannel stoped working and i needed to drag'n'drop em all over again.

Im at totall loss here, i know the info i've provided is almost nonexistant but if anyone knows whats up i would be greatly apreciative if you could tell how do i fix this and prevent it from happening in the future.

When I bookmark something, I often apply tags. I have noticed that when I use a very long tag, combined with many tags, it prevents tags being used. For example, the word "internationalization" prevents tags being stored.

A bookmark that is tagged like this: one two three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve thirteen fourteen internationalization will not have its tags saved.

However, this is stored successfully: one two three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve thirteen internationalization

This also stores successfully: 'one two three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve thirteen fourteen fifteen sixteen'
