I've mentioned this before but never have found good answers or feedback. Too often (well more than I'd like) I've closed Firefox and when I come back (start up Firefox again) my previous Tabs are lost. And, there is no option to restore previous session, nor closed tabs. Firefox keeps history, why can't it keep a history of previous tabs. And, why does it frequently not provide: Restore previous session. It seems that keeping a history previous tabs for a period of time isn't that difficult. Please enlighten me. This has happened to me (losing the previous tabs) more than care to remember.

This question was previously posted: "How to DISABLE the back and forward arrows that now come up on the left and right sides of the Firefox panel." There was only one answer but it didn't address the actual issue. It's too easy to inadvertently go back a page or two which usually screws up something I'm working on. Someone added these annoying arrows, there must be a way to remove or at least disable them. PLEASE HELP!!!!!

I'm using macos 12.5

Firefox will not open any windows.

When I try to open Firefox by clicking on the dock icon, nothing happens.

If I right-click the dock icon and select 'Show All Windows", a message takes over my screen. The message says "No Available Windows".

I manually deleted the caching directory in my homedir.

I then deleted Firefox, downloaded the latest version and installed it.

Attempting to open it fails again. The same symptom recurs.

I'm running the latest version - I downloaded it about 20 minutes ago. But I can't find the version number because the application won't actually open.

After ColorWays was disabled I installed the FireFox Color add-on to recreate the theme I had been using

Everything works fine except when I open the Library window or Add-on windows I get the 'Dark Theme' instead of the 'Light Theme'

After experimenting with different colors I found that the 'Toolbar Color' setting here https://color.firefox.com determines whether the Library is light or dark

It seems only the very lightest colors allow the light theme even though on ColorWays the intermediate themes allowed it and had exactly the same level of brightness as the custom one I created

Is the there any way to independently alter the Library color without having to the change the Toolbar theme I read this https://developer.mozilla.org/docs/Mozilla/Add-ons/WebExtensions/manifest.json/theme#colors but it doesn't mention the Library

Thanks

I change the default action for e.g. mime type PDF to a bash script. - works I get the filename of the downloaded pdf file in my bash script - works I can do things with this downloaded file - works

But can I get the download URL of this file in my script? It's not a dedicated URL in a tab - so I can not read the URL of the active tab.

It's a direct download link from, let' say, google search.

What do I have to do to get the URL of the downloaded file in a bash script?

Thank you in advanced!

So basically Firefox updated itself yesterday. And since it did I have not been able to use the webcam (which I need to use on a daily basis in Google Meet). I tried using Chrome to see if it worked and it did, I just prefer using Firefox.

But then I started looking for information that might help and I found out about the New Profile feature which I did not know about. I made a New Profile and when I tried using the camera it actually did work there.

What am I doing wrong with the original profile? I have not changed any settings, is it possible it just changed on its own? And how can I restore it to how it was? I already tried re-installing Firefox a couple of times yesterday and nothing worked. I uninstalled it and installed it back again and the problem persisted. I deleted cache and cookies and still the problem persisted.

Please help! Thanks a lot

Firefox incorrectly formats 7 digit phone numbers for no reason by adding a "+1" and stripping out the "-"s (dashes). It is not up to Firefox to arbitrarily decide how I want phone numbers entered. This can be seen when you go to "Privacy & Security", "Forms and Autofill", and "Saved Addresses". Edit any of your saved addresses or add one if you don't have any addresses saved. Enter a phone number "456-789-1234", save the entry, and open that entry again. The phone number will now be "+14567891234". If Firefox wants to make the reformatting an option, I'm OK with that so that I can turn the intrusion off. version 109.0

To preface this I want it to be known that I have been using Firefox on this computer for a long time (around 2-3 years) with no issues whatsoever and today this has started out of nowhere.

As the title suggests I'm having connection issues with Firefox on Windows 10. To be more specific, out of the blue every-time I try to connect to a website it will say "Unable to connect, An error occurred during a connection" and such. But you see this problem ONLY occurs on Firefox and not Microsoft Edge. I have looked EVERYWHERE and everyone else that has met the same problem never found a solution and just gave up it seems. I tried all of the solutions listed on the Mozilla support page Here and NONE of them worked. It seemed my Firefox was dead. Other than the officially listed solutions I feel like I tried everything one could possibly do. Re-installing, Restarting, uninstalling all add-ons, deleting my previous profile, changing the proxy settings and many more. So all hope seemed lost and I was sure that I would have to abandon ship and just migrate to Chrome or Opera GX, neither of which sounded appealing at all. But then I came up with an Idea, my thought was since it was a connection issue maybe changing my connection would do SOMETHING, hell ANYTHING. And to my surprise using a VPN and trying again works. I am able to do all that I previously could its just going through a VPN. The thing is that it still doesn't work when it isn't connected to a VPN so what is the problem here, I don't really want to HAVE to use a VPN to use my browser so if anyone has ANY idea at all anything would be appreciated, thank you for your time reading this.

TLDR: Out of nowhere only Firefox couldn't connect to sites on windows 10 but everything else could, using VPN allowed me to connect to stuff but I don't really wanna have to be forced into using a VPN so any help appreciated, thanks.

After downloading about 10 GiB of source code and then building another 15 GiB, to install Firefox you need to use `./mach install` or more correctly: alias install='sudo sh -c "export MOZBUILD_STATE_PATH=$HOME/.mozbuild; ./mach install"'

But to re-install Nightly Firefox on the freshly installed (even the same) OS I will have to either save 25 GiB of source+build (+.mozbuild and other stuff) or to redo everything from scratch (needs at least 1h 20m). I'm having a hard time understanding all the abstractions and redirections from `./mach install` (and Makefile from ./obj-*/ which is automatically generated) to reconstruct a minimal set of things to install Firefox.

I need a bundle of files+dirs which is enough to install everything system-wide for Firefox to work properly. Maybe even simply run `./mach install` in this "minimal build installation" (if possible).

P.S. I'm using Debian based distro(s).
