Once again Firefox has decided to take over and change all my settings! I had finally managed to prevent it updating, as each and every time I had to reinstall all my setting and extentions from scratch. Today, it decided to clear all my preferences and change itself to its own default settings. OK, so I can change my profile option, except all three are using the same defaults: I appear to have lost all my settings and extensions entirely. OK, I'll copy from my backup, but once again the three backup profiles are being overwritten with the defaults. Even my third backup of last March overwrites to the defaults! How and why is Firefox managing to keep overwriting my defaults to its own preferred settings? How do I stop it doing this and regain my own preferences?

I also tried Sync and now I am getting bookmarks from over five years ago! And once again my settings are changing to the defaults. Surely a Sync should overwrite with the current bookmarks and settings not just keep adding more and more. I am now in a right mess again. Back to losing everything with updates. I am a great believer in the 'if it ain't broke don't fix it' mentality, but Firefox has broken itself and is refusing to allow me to change to how it used to be! How do I restore my own preferences and prevent Firefox from changing them to what it wants.

Any way to force Firefox to prioritize IPv4 without disabling IPv6?

Firefox prioritizes IPv6 (even on a network with internet-accessible fd00:: address, which contradicts my currently set up prefix policies) over IPv4. Now the problem is that my IPv6 address is a tunnelbroker.net one, and while I still want to be able to access the IPv6 internet, I don't want a tunneled connection to be my default. And I don't want to disable IPv6 completely. Is there a way to force Firefox to prioritize IPv4 over IPv6?

Note: the first time when connecting to a website, the browser connects via IPv4 (like the prefix policies are supposed to work), but then it remembers that the website is accessible via IPv6, saves it into the content-prefs.sqlite file (removing the said file makes the connection fall back to IPv4 first again) and connects via IPv6 again. Is there a way to make Firefox NOT remember that in content-prefs.sqlite and still connect abiding the prefix policies?

In most of the apps running on MacOS, you have inside the standard "Window" top menu, a lot of options, like: - Minimize - Zoom - Tile Window to the Left - Tile Window to the Right - Move to <monitor name> ... ...etc

In Firefox (I'm using developer version, 103b), we only get the first 2 options (minimize and zoom). I have set shortcuts to easy move my windows around my monitors, but they don't work in Firefox, because those shortcuts relies on the presence of the menu option "Move to <monitor>".

Is it by design, or is there a way to get this option in the Window menu? I'm attaching the menu clip from Chrome and Firefox to illustrate the issue.

Long story short: windows update sneaked a restart under my nose caused me to lose all my previous session.

I'm attempting to recover the previous session.

I have backed up the unmodified session profile folder. But this profile folder was modified by the restart process obviously, as windows gave firefox "normal shutdown" command. How do I know that? The next time I opened it up, it's "brand new" without the "restore session" interface.

So my idea is to figure out if firefox keeps a track record of previous sessions EVEN IF THE SHUTDOWN WAS PROPER.

If it does, well I'll have to figure out a way to "trick" firefox to restore it. If it doesn't, well I'll have to manually restore it by sifting through the history.

I repeat, the key here is for me to find out whether or not firefox always keep a record of previous session somewhere.

So my question is, does it? Or does it purge all the previous session clean as long as the shutdown was deemed "correct"?

Whenever I sign into Firefox, all my themes, add-ons/extensions are added via Firefox Sync. That's fine, but the problem I have is that whenever I sign into any Firefox browser, an old theme I used to have that I no longer have on my account keeps coming back, and I've tried to find solutions to this issue, but none have had this kind of issue. It may be similar to issues those have had, or currently have, but I can't seem to do anything to remedy this issue.

Keep in mind that this is not a Firefox browser issue, it is an account issue.

I'd be deeply grateful to any assistance you may have for me.

Last few days any Firefox 102.0.1.8221 launch causes my Windows 7 64bit to reboot, usually when I try to mouse click anything in Firefox after it's fired up and restored open tabs, however even if I don't mouse click anything Firefox will force a reboot within a minute or so.

This Firefox Win 7 reboot behaviour only started after the last Firefox update, though I would point out that around update version 100.nn I started getting failed update notifications from within Firefox which necessitated a manual newer version Firefox download and install.

Running Windows 7 in safe mode with networking on allows Firefox to function without crashing, albeit slowly and with no MSE protection available etc.

Only one crash report dated 16/07/2022 with following content: Crash ID: bp-d8383165-9c77-45e4-9929-a3ce12160527

Please note I'm sending this report via Firefox on my iMac coz that still works...

I developed a web app that checks the existing session login for each new page. So, after logging in the first time, the user is shown a dashboard with a list of functions they can access (My Account, etc). When an item is clicked and the application calls the function, it first checks for the existence of login session. If it's not there, then the user is forced back to login screen. However Firefox is deleting the session at some point so when the session is checked for the new function, the user is forced to login again. Chrome, Safari, Edge do not and are fine.

Enhanced tracking is turned off for the site and is shown as an exception. What is happening and how can prevent it?
