I had to reinstall Ubuntu 20.04 because I removed vital Python 2 and 3 and it broke. Before doing this I was logged into my Firefox profile and should have had my bookmarks and extensions synced. I do not see any reason why this would not be the case. However, after my reinstall of Ubuntu and logging into Firefox profile all of my bookmarks and extensions are gone. I tried checking around Firefox and it only shows bookmarks and extensions from after my reinstall. I have not performed a backup since I reinstalled Ubuntu, but those bookmarks are there. So I don't understand why I can't find my old bookmarks and extensions from before my Ubuntu issue, because I was logged into my Firefox account. My Firefox account information should have been saved to my account not my computer anyway. Please help me I had a lot of important bookmarks on there, but can't remember all of them.

When i switch on my computer i have to make sure that i open Firefox and restore the previous session before i do anything else.

For example, if you click on a link in an email - and if Firefox is not open - then it will open Firefox and you have lost access to your previous session tabs.

Yesterday, when i switched on the computer Adobe wanted to remove a program - so i uninstalled the program and then it opened a page in Firefox so i lost 50 tabs. Sigh.

SUGGESTION As well as having the option to restore the previous session could we please have the option to restore the session before that? I think this will make a lot of people very happy.

Hello, I accidentally removed a extension from one copy of my Firefox Account that syncs. That in turn deleted the extension from another PC. That extension had very valuable information in it I'm trying to recover. Is there anyway to recover to a previous time and date with Firefox sync, and if not can it be done with some work? I did find a Old Firefox Account folder but could not seem to get any of the extension data working again, only to set the extension up again.

Please help if you can! Thank you!

Hi. I would like to restore my previous session when I open Firefox (last version of the browser installed). The option is turned on, but nothing happens when I close the browser and I open it again. The support says I should see "Restore previous session" after "New Private Window", but this option is not there. In the history, the list of recently closed tabs is always empty, there are juste one or two links in the recently closed windows (it seems to be a random list). Can someone help me ? I don't understand why it doesn't work. Thank you :)

I have had this problem for many years, using many different versions of Firefox, using many different computers, and many different laser printers (both HP and Brother). I don't think it is a problem on my end. I am still mostly using Win 7. Currently using Firefox 83 on some of the computers, others, I'd have to look. The main problem I have is PayPal. When I sell something and want to print out the "packing slip" it tries to print a HUGE page on an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet, thus I only get a corner (top left) of this huge page. Changing the printers scale does nothing but shrink the "corner of the page" and still print nothing else of the remainder of the page (like it doesn't exist). Changing the page from portrait to landscape does not help. Changing printers does not help. Changing ISP's and physical locations and computers does not help. I have no other problems with other prints form other websites. I have had to install and use Google Chrome in order to print out the packing slips. I would like to NOT have to use Chrome and have two web browsers on my desktop. Any ideas? Thanks.

I am having trouble logging into my bank's website from Firefox. It's worked fine for several years and I have no clue what triggered it all of a sudden. Furthermore, I can log in just fine from various other browsers.

I have Google around on the issue for awhile now, and have troubleshooted several different things based on what I've Googled, such as clearing all site cookies, data, cache, etc. Also I had a pop-up blocker add-on but I removed it and that didn't do anything. Lastly, I tried completely uninstalling Firefox and re-installing it without ANY add-ons, but it still doesn't work.

Details on what happens: I go to the log in page, and I put in my user and password and click to log in, and it does nothing. It just basically refreshes the page, so the page comes back up with blank user and password fields.

Any help/ideas on the matter would be much appreciated. Thanks.

This is really not specifically about Firefox Sync or Firefox itself, but I can't find a better match.

 Months ago I changed my email address with Firefox Accounts.  I currently log in with the new email address and I only see the new email address under my account preferences.  But when I add a new device to Firefox Sync, the "Complete Sync Setup" email is going to my old email address, meaning the one I previously used with my Firefox account.
 Can anyone suggest if there is a way to change this or if there is something I am doing wrong?
 Thanks for any help!

I posted this problem back when v.80.0 was out. It was later fixed, but now it's back.

Loading an external bookmark as the default start page in v.83.0 and using it as the default bookmark (file:///C:/Mine/Testing/BOOKMARK.HTM) creates an error.

The error is that clicking on any url in the bookmark to visit and then clicking the top left arrow to return will always bring you to the top of the bookmark. It used to bring you back to the same location on the bookmark. Now, it brings you back to the top of the bookmark. Thus making it necessary to scroll back down to the location (url) you just visited. Really annoying to have to keep do this in order to return to your original location in the bookmark.

Hope someone can help again.

I realise that Firefox uses up a lot of Memory (particularly as it tries to run each Tab separately). However, my Firefox seems to keep increasing its usage!

I can start with a number of Tabs open & (after refreshing each Tab - to ensure it is "lice" & "active") I will get (according to Windows Task Manager) about 1,300MB in use.

Without opening up any more Tabs & without trying to run any Web-Based Videos, over a period of a few hours it will increase & increase & increase - perhaps getting up to 4,000MB!

I've cross checked with "about:performance" (to open FF's own Task Manager), to show the individual Tab usage, & that NEVER totals up to anywhere near the figures shown by the Windows Task Manager!!

Obviously, my FF is fully up to date!

Any comments!

Hey team, I would like to know if there is a way to "name" the firefox window? I have multiple theme windows (for instance, one is for all recipes, one is for all news pages, one is for all online classes) with multiple tabs open and would like to find a way to navigate between them in an easier way. Naming them would be lovely, so I could name the window "recipes" and find the right one easier in the dock.

Anyone knows a trick? If it doesn't exist, any way to hint to the developers that this would be helpful? :) It could be just me though :)

Thank you for your thoughts,

I have "Restore previous session" checked but when I restart my computer Firefox does not start with the previous session. Currently I have many tabs open and need to restart Windows but I looked in my profiles folder and do not see any of the session files and backup folders.

Why are the session files (sessionstore.jsonlz4, recovery.jsonlz4, recovery.baklz4, previous.jsonlz4, sessionstore-backups) missing from the profile folder?

I can't restart Windows because I don't want to lose my tabs. How do I get Firefox to save the session to disk?

I was using firefox just fine, watching a youtube video when suddenly my video froze. I refreshed my webpage and youtube altogether will no longer load. I'm met with a white screen.

My firefox browser will no longer load most websites I try to go to. (neither will Chrome, but Edge seems to work just fine).

Now when I try to google something, I get a white screen. I try to go to reddit or other websites and i'm met with a white page filled with unicode characters. My browser was working JUST fine about an hour ago and out of nowhere it will now load nothing. I'm at my wit's end trying to figure out what is going on.

Society6.com is the ONLY website I can get firefox to load right now. I would attach screenshots but the website my screenshots get stored on WON'T load with firefox. I'm writing this from my macbook as, once again, firefox will not load any webpage I try to load up (except Society6 for whatever reason).

Any and all information/help would be greatly appreciated, i'm by no means a tech/computer guy so i'm really out of my element here. I'm more than happy to answer any further/clarifying questions people may have. Thank you.
