I found this thread - hurrah! It exactly matches my problem: "No window opens when Firefox is clicked on, but runs in the background for each time it is clicked. Cursor repeatedly flickers or spins after opening.". . . (Exactly my problem, but how do I fix it?)

CoNiGMa 4/27/20, 11:43 AM

My problem started after being on a Betfair portal site and selecting Firefox as my browser, declining to select Internet Explorer - since then my cursor has speen spinning - i looked at Task Manager to see constant activity and two copies of Firefox, so I entered "Cursor spinning" on the Help - and found the thread above. Great! But how do I resolve the problem, I'm not an IT person and I don't know where to enter any "kill..." commands, whatever they are.

Your help would be greatly appreciated!!

Hi everyone,

I've enabled the Restore previous session feature (in Settings->General->Startup). All nice and good, except the fact that FF is serving pages from cache when starting up and restoring the session. I would very much like FF to refresh the pages so I can see the live content by default.

Any ideas? Maybe an about:config flag?

Thanks, Mircea.

Since the problem occurs only on Firefox where the "Following" icon on my Pinterest home page is missing and not on other browsers, I'm wondering if the problem occurs because of some problem with my Mozilla Firefox. This has been going on for over a week. Would clearing my cookie cache help? Is there a danger than I would lose passwords to sites if I did so?

Hi,

I'm looking for a Firefox extension that works like FEBE used to.

I want to use one extension, and one extension only, to backup my Firefox history, extensions, bookmarks, tabs and profile.

I've searched for such an extension, but have come up blank. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

FEBE still seems available for download, but was last updated in 2017 (FEBE http://softwarebychuck.com/febe/febe.html). Does anyone know how well, if at all, FEBE works with Windows 10 and the current version of Mozilla Firefox?

If there is no extension that backups up bookmarks, tabs, extensions and profile in one go, I'd be grateful for any suggestions for extensions that backup bookmarks, history, extensions and profiles individually. I'm already using Tab Backup and Restore extension for tabs.

The reason I'm anxious is that my Firefox recently crashed and I lost all my laboriously created settings. I was lucky to get them back through one of the backup software programs I use.

My thanks for your advice and help in advance.

My browser opens new links in new tabs. I want them to open new links in the same tab.

Others inquire about the same issue get a response saying:;

"Did you try it? Some sites add a target="_blank" attribute to links. Links with these attributes are supposed to open in a new window when left clicked. However, Firefox by default opens these links in a new tab in the current window. By setting browser.link.open_newwindow to 1, these links will instead open in the current tab/window."

I need step-by-step help understanding what I need to do to set the browser are suggested in the above response.

I have a new iMac. After making Firefox my default browser and then making some Bookmarks. When shutting down the computer and rebooting. The Firefox Browser will open at Login as I have set it too. But it opens to the "Welcome to Firefox " page again and doesn't recognize the Bookmarks that were saved earlier. I have used the Firefox Browser on other Apple Laptops, but now with this iMac, the process starts over and over.... HELP
