## Launching Firefox, get unwanted New Tab in addition to pinned tab

Recently when launching Firefox, rather than opening to my pinned tab, it now opens, in addition, an unwanted New Tab. I can't find a setting to stop this.

After upgrading to 80.0.1 (Windows 64bit), my OneTab extensions stopped working (an extension that saves open tabs as links onto a single tab when find that there are too many are open and lets you open them later.)

I would like to find the extension data from before the upgrade so I can save my old links. Where can I find it?

I have used Firefox for many years now and love it and keep telling my friends and colleagues to switch to this browser rather than Google Chrome.. There is something that happens irregularly with my 'pinned tabs', every now and again when I close Firefox the next time I open it up, they are all gone. I go through history and replace them and 'Pin' them and its all fine for a while then it happens again. Most recently - in the last two days it has happened twice, it takes some time for me to restore the tabs and pin them, then I have gone into 'Options' and I have set the box (ticked it) for 'Restore previous session' but its not happening. Also when I go to the 'three bars' up on the top ribbon on the far right the option to 'Restore previous session' simply isn't there! I have no idea what is happening but its very frustrating and I would really appreciate some answer as to what might possibly be going on? Many thanks for your time, much appreciate and love your work everyone.

I would like to add the Firefox homepage to my favorites list, but when I am on the page (get to it by clicking on the "home" button to the left of the address bar), the "star" button in the address bar is not there (usually would click on that to mark the page I am on to be bookmarked). The address bar does not show an address, so I can not add it manually. What is that address, or are there any suggestions about how I might get this done? Thank you from Linda.

Oops! I must have clicked something by mistake. Suddenly email is hidden.

Start Firefox, see string of icons = top sites Click Mail.Yahoo icon (should see ATT.net email list) Left panel shows "Inbox" count 770; other entries also show counts. Clicking "Inbox" causes a thin blue line to appear above main panel, then vanish. Main panel shows just "Today" with no entries. Can compose and send email.

I'd certainly appreciate any help on this situation -- I'm in deep water here.

I have Restore Previous Session on Startup unchecked, but Firefox keeps trying to do it anyway. When I have to shut it down because it is not responding, it goes to the bad page when I start it again and gets stuck again. I just got the "We are having trouble restoring your previous session" page, so at least I have a choice now, but why is it trying to restore the previous session when I have the option unchecked?

It seems that the text and icons on my tabs have stopped working. Nothing happens when I click them. If I click the tab outside of the text or icon, they work as expected. This is driving me crazy! Anyone have an idea of what's going on?

Details:

• Clicking the text on a tab doesn't focus that tab, nothing happens
• Clicking just below the text, but inside of the tab, activates the tab as it should
• Same is true for the new tab button
• Pinned tabs are not affected, they work fine
• Hovering over the tab doesn't highlight the tab, unless you hover below the tab

What I've tried, that didn't work:

• Tried a full "Reset Firefox"
• Started Firefox in Safe mode with
• Switched from Firefox beta to Firefox stable by reinstalling from scratch

Mitigation:

• Maximizing Firefox makes all the tabs work again (!)

Context:

• This started happening after I had my computer hooked up to an external screen. I've tried connecting to the same monitor again, but this doesn't change the current broken behaviour.

I'm running out of ideas, could anyone tell me what's going on?

## 'data:image' data links in page info. How to identify location/allow retrieval without turning off tracker blocking?

One of the sites I regularly use (tesco.com) seems to have changed the way it gets thumbnail images of products, so that they no longer show up unless I turn off script blocking for a whole page. (Once I've got one page working, it continues working for the other pages, even if scripts are 'blocked' on those!?)

In the page info I see that the non showing images are only represented by 'data:image' followed by gif.64 and a long string of letters. I understand that this is an html link converted to data, but I don't know why, and have never seen this before. If I copy the 'link' into a new tab, it just goes to a black page. One time I did get a warning pop up from 'NoScript' that the page was doing some dodgy sort of call out, and 'did I want to disable it on this site'. I think it said the call out was to one of the Google sites, but I can't find any way to show this information when NoScript isn't warning me about it; and I can't seem to make 'NoScript' do the pop up every time I try to search with the data link: most times it just goes to the black page: only once or twice has it showed me the warning. I don't understand what's going on.  :/

First time 'NoScript' gave the warning, I opted to 'allow this linking for this page', and the thumbnails then showed up, and the 'data:image' link info was replaced with a normal link to a jpg picture (odd because the data link had been prefixed 'gif;64' ?). I then wanted to know which script to enable for future use, but, when I disabled all the page scripts again, the thumbnails stayed there, and continued to work on the whole site: not just the current page!

When I logged out, and came back to continue shopping later, whatever the setting was, had been lost, and I had to go through the rigmarole of allowing all scripts, to get the thumbnails to show, and then turning off all but the main domain permission afterwards.

Can someone please explain what these data links are, and how to see where they are really aimed/what site a picture is actually on, before just letting them connect. And so how to allow just the exception that's needed to show the thumbnails.

Sorry if this sounds dumb, but it's all new to me.

Many thanks for any enlightenment.
