This has happened to me several times:

When browsing, a new tab opens, telling me that Firefox needs to restart after a background update and that after that, my current session will be re-created, all tabs reopened. Except - after closing Firefox, no tabs are reopened and Firefox does not restart either. I have to reopen Firefox manually, will then receive an update notification and stare at an empty tab.

I use Firefox for work and this is annoying - I have taken to bookmarking everything in such a situation, but I hope there is another solution.

I use Firefox on Ubuntu 18.04.2 .

In the past I could drag files from the downloads dropdown. Now, in order to drag downloaded files I have to open the downloads folder, which is an additional step and a nuisance. I suppose this changed with a recent FF update.

Is there any way to get the old functionality back?

I'm using FF 67.0 64-bit on a Win 10 64-bit PC.

Since the last update, whenever I close Firefox and restart my computer, my tabs are not restored when I open Firefox again. I use Firefox at work, and have tabs for various websites I use daily. Our policy at my job is to close all programs and restart the computer at the end of the day. I used to do this and have no problems opening Firefox with all my tabs restored. However, since last week, my tabs are gone when I open Firefox. This ONLY happens after restarting the computer. If I close Firefox and then reopen it 10 minutes later, my tabs are still there. I also no longer have the option to restore the session. Is there anything I can do to fix this?

When using Google Forms, the normal options on all forms like: "Preview", "Settings", etc are invisible. I'm able to see them if I hover over them, but they are not visible otherwise. I just did some troubleshooting with Geek Squad and determined it's a Firefox issue. The problem does not exist using Chrome. See attached screen shots please.

I was able to use Google Forms in the past, this started a few months ago as I recall.

Thanks in advance for you help.

I've recently made the switch from Chrome to Firefox and I'd like it to stay that way. But there are definitely some things I missed on Chrome that's not on Firefox, and that is the tab to search engine feature. Now I understand that Firefox does have their own version of this, which is the @(website) feature. I've attached a screenshot of what I'm talking about to this post.

I'm wondering if it was possible to add an @YouTube as an option?


Could not find any answers on google or Mozilla/Firefox support threads and forums. So I'm hoping this is a unique question with a simple solution.

Thanks.

Look, this is a huge problem because this message isn't just showing up on my Fire Fox browser, it's also on my TOR browser. I'm not seeking to fix TOR here, I'm just saying that it's on there too and TOR uses Fire Fox - this message appears nowhere else on my PC or browsers. My system was just purchased brand new in Feb. This message did not display when I dl either browser. I've NEVER downloaded ANY Avast or anything like it, I use Windows Defender and that's it. I'm not a techie - but I'm like really neurotic over hard drive space - I don't download ANYTHING unless I absolutely HAVE to with the exception of browsers. I only download those from their official websites though. I do play some games, I've only downloaded games from Steam, Origin, and Utomik. I do have all of their clients on my PC. Other than that, there's been NOTHING I've dl. I only included that info because I thought it might help. Can someone PLEASE help with this. I tried to look at the registry, I'm not seeing anything that seems amiss but I need more specifics - I've read the other questions and answers on this - but I don't know HOW to change anything to see if it helps. I already am scared to death to touch the registry.

Trying to open books in Google Play Books.

I have tried in Chrome, Firefox, IE, Vivaldi and Opera but all with the same result: "If you want to read books in Google Play you must allow cookies from books.googleusercontent.com"

However, what ever I do allow books.googleusercontent.com or cookies from same i does not work

Eg. Opera: Advanced Settings - Privacy & Security - Site Setting - Cookies - Allow - Add - books.googleusercontent.com

As mentioned, this is an issue in 5 browsers and I can't help thinking that it must be Google Play that has an issue.

I have tried Google Help forums but with no answers

I cant be right the every user has to go deep down in settings to be able to read the books (I'm frustrated, admit it)

Anyone knowing anything?

Take care

Hello. Since the last two or three updates, Firefox unloads my tabs automatically. Only the tabs that are opened mainly/principally in other windows (the "front pages" or the highlighted tabs of those windows) will be loaded continuously/permanently. If, let's say, I want to stay logged in on Facebook, I can't if it's opened in a different tab (that's not highlighted) - it will unload automatically as soon as I switch to a different tab (from the same window). This is really frustrating and it does it in Safe Mode too. Thank you for your answers!

Also, since those updates, I had some issues with form auto-filling - saved users and passwords will show on login fields as suggestions, but when I click on them, nothing appears in the fields and they will stay blank. Auto-filling bookmark tags will display the same type of behavior - not working or filling the tag that is firstly suggested from the drop-down list (even if I select the third or the fifth one). This issue diminished since the last update, but it still appears from time to time.

HW: HP 4530s/Intel Core i3-2330M @ 2,20 Ghz & 8 GB of RAM memory;

I've even been able to peek into it using the Developers Tool. But I need to back up this info and restore it once the profile is reset. There are dozens of keys with a hierarchical values for each. (I am guessing arrays or hashed lists.)

Is it possible?

Hi. After years of streaming live tv from the bbc website without a problem, yesterday I was unable to do so. This was immediately after booting up firefox to find I was redirected to a page telling me that firefox had updated. Everything looked normal but when I tried to stream it just stuck on the buffering symbol. I tried to stream from other sites and had no problem streaming ITV, Ch4 etc. Then I tried watching content from BBC i-player and again no problem. I tried to live stream BBC radio and again no problem. Finally I tried live streaming BBC tv through a different browser and again no problem. I tried clearing the cache and cookies and reloading firefox in safe mode all to no avail.

Any ideas? I'm totally stumped...

Thanks in advance...

I have have a profile folder that I have carried with me between computers to sync all of my addon preferences (NoScript per-site permissions).

After upgrading to Firefox 67 that profile now seems to be forever inaccessible to me. Attempts to launch it in the about:profiles page result in a message box titles

'You've launched an older version of Firefox'

The only options thereon are 'Create New Profile' and 'Quit'. My question: how do I regain access to the profile I spent months building up?

Some ads are being blocked in Firefox, but for the life of me, I cannot find where I might have an ad blocker turned on in Firefox or installed as a plug-in or extension. Chrome displays the ads correctly. Example site is www.milesawaygrandparenting.com. There are three ads at the bottom of most pages which display in Chrome but not (for me, anyway) in Firefox.

Where might I look or troubleshoot to find out where the ads are being blocked? I have McAfee Total Protection installed, and Privacy Badger also.

1. Session Restore does not restore pinned tabs. I keep about ten, so this is a real burden, trying to remember them all and restore them manually. And it happens about twice a week that I have to restore, so it's no small matter. To me, at least.

2. Also, I still have the problem with using "X" to exit: If there is another window of FF running, and I exit the "main" window first, on restart I will only get the second window. I am so accustomed to using the "X" for all programs and apps. that retraining to use the three-line window and clicking on "Exit" is a challenge for me I try manfully to overcome for this. Which seems idiosyncratic to me. And Ctrl-Shft-Q has never worked for me at all.

Thanks.
