Greetings: My computer was shutdown and restarted by a colleague and I seem to have lost my browsing history and all the open tabs from my last session are not retrievable — restore previous session is not available / appears grey'd out. I am on a macbook pro running Big Sur and I do have a time machine backup of that last session — can I get back those open tabs and browser history from my time machine? Can I do it a la carte or do I need to wipe my whole computer and restore from there? Thanks in advance for your thoughts, Sam

Firefox 87 x86 "broke" yesterday visually. A lot of areas of pages and top area (Firefox menu area) turned black. Safe mode fixed the problem. I did not or could not see how to disable ext one at a time. I went with a "Refresh" when I was to uninstall and install. Now, FF 87 does not remember the magnification setting. I set pages to 80%, close, launch, home page (previously set to 80%) is at 100%. Pages that are bookmarked (just set to 80% prior new launch) launch at 100%. There a multiple times during the run time of Firefox that I had gone into config and made adjustments. I do not recall having to do so for magnification not being saved. I do notice that one config change made prior does not exist now, set resolution 1440x900. I think there was a true/false for page memory in config that I had switched from default before the refresh, but seeing how the screen resolution isn't 1440x900..I assume "Refresh" reset config to default.

Sum: Now, Firefox does not save page magnification. What do I need to do, other than 'bump' the size every time? This was not the case prior the "Refresh".

I use 3 profiles (work, private and media) side by side. When I open external links I have no control over which profile will open the link. The link is opened right away (so no profile manager interference) in a random profile. I do want it to open right away, but ideally would like to easily set a priority order for profiles to open the external links without having to restart the profiles.

Hello together,

when implementing canvas graphics with 2D context, I notified that the latest FF 87.0 on windows is much slower than chrome/edge/opera on windows and also much slower as safari on mac. I drilled into detail and detected that it was caused when drawing polygons with color gradient (see attached image). Means that using canvascontext.createLinearGradient() instead of flat colors makes it slow. On the other hand using flat colors is perfectly fast.

I wondered, because I had much better experience with FF and installed an earlier version (78.9.0esr) on the same windows workstation and the problem was gone. Seams, that some change made the newer FF slower with this type of graphic..

CPU is i7 8650U 1.90 - 2.11 GHZ, OS is Windows 10 version 20H2

But the effect is the same on all windows workstations I tested. Would be happy to see, that I can use FF again with these type of graphic apps.

I have a virtual w10x64 machine which I need to play old flash content on a specific (trusted) website which is the only one allowed in mms.cfg and which does not use https. With the latest update to 78.9 FF does not open the flash content and the pages anymore. So I reverted to 78.8 but the auto-update always intercepts.

How can I disable the auto-updates for good? Is there possibly a policy for this?

I think the FF programmers need better imagination on specific scenarios before they impose so called "security features" on the users and break their processes.

Hi,

I think I broke the ALT keyup events in some way, probably with my configuration but not sure how.

If I put this code in the console : `document.addEventListener("keyup", e=>console.log('alt: '+e.altKey+' | '+String.fromCharCode(e.which).toLowerCase()));` and the press the keys, I have the following results:

- pressing "I", I get the expected "alt: false | i" - pressing "ALT+I", I get "alt: true | �"

I do not have the problem with other modifier keys like CTRL

Are the passwords still saved locally on my other devices? I am not home right now and can't check. If so and all i have to do is sync from them then all is well.

Why can't I find a support mail address anywhere?

Weird Crash Problem

I just recently moved from Win 7 to Win 10 (x64). The Win 7 install was getting unstable and I was getting blue screen crashes a couple of times a week. I suppose it's possible it was Firefox related, but Firefox seemed to work OK.

Since the upgrade, Firefox has been unstable in a very odd way I haven't seen before. I've been using Firefox and its predecessor Netscape since 1995 when I was using a beta version of Netscape.

Sometimes Firefox will crash and then refuse to restart, but most of the time the problem is I can get it to restart, but then if I close Firefox and try to reopen it, it will refuse to restart. If I copy over a backed up profile it will usually start at least once and may run OK for a couple of days. But when it crashes, I can't get it going again without copying over a backed up profile. Though that can be hit and miss too. Sometimes a backed up copy that worked before won't work, but another backup will.

When I upgraded I was on, I think 70.0 esr, but I upgraded to 78.8.0 esr (both 32 bit) trying to get it stable again. I tried installing 78.8.0 esr x64 and i was able to quit and restart, but it crashed and refused to restart a few hours later.

I tried Safe Mode and it starts in Safe Mode, even with a bad profile, but when I turn off all add-ins in Safe Mode and try to start normally, it won't start if it's not starting. Hardware Acceleration is off (it's been off the entire time).

On the most recent crash I deleted the profile that crashed copied over the last working profile files, but it still wouldn't start. I then went back to the Win 7 installation profile, copied over the crashes and datareporting directories of the profile and it started.

I've tried copying small pieces at different crashes and copying over something that worked the time before sometimes works, and sometimes doesn't.

Has anybody ever seen a problem like this one? And if so did they manage to fix it?
