I recently posted a question on how to fix Yahoo articles pictures not showing-up (it's about half of the pictures in some articles). It appears to be related to pictures that are tied to Instagram, Twitter, etc. I did get a couple of responses to my issue....thank you. The problem is that neither response fixed the problem. Yahoo is a major site that Firefox should fully support. Microsoft Edge works perfectly when using the Yahoo site. I have been a long, long time Firefox user on multiple devices, but I am about ready to switch to Edge for good if this can't be corrected. How do I (or anybody seeing this) let the Firefox developers know this problem needs to be fixed stat?

Thanks, Jim

Firefox had been telling me I needed to do an update for a couple of weeks. So like a fool, today of all days, I said yes. But I did look at what the update was going to do to make my final decision. It looked good so I said OK.

What it actually did was download the complete app and ask if I wanted to keep the old version as well. So I kept the older version (which had been up to date to this point) and opened the new one. It appeared to be totally "plain vanilla" with none of my bookmarks or windows, etc. I looked for my Bookmarks and all it had was some of my bookmarks from the Bookmarks Bar, none of my tons of years of important and properly organized bookmark folders.

I immediately quit, rebooted my computer, and went back to my older app - remember the one I did say to keep - and I got exactly the same behavior from it. I then completely trashed the "new" version and rebooted my computer again . . . then tried the older version . . . but that time things got worse. I did not even get the old Bookmarks Menu bar.

I then rebooted and went to my backup, brought back the copy from my last backup a month ago, and tried to run it. This time I got a message saying that opening the older version could destroy all my settings . . . but I did not care as I would rather go back a month ago than be where I am now! However, it would not allow me to open the older version because of the possibility of destroying . . . nothing!

HOW do I at least get back to my older version that would have probably 90% of my older Bookmarks/Folders and settings? I have that older copy and a full backup of my HD . . . but I do not know what, other than the Foxfire Application I need to look for and replace on my system. I assume there are some files stored in System folders that I need to replace, but I could not find them as I can't find anything in the Library or System directories that are identifiable as Firefox files.

All help appreciated . . . guess there will be no Cyber Monday shopping for me!

Thanks!

I closed firefox (all three windows), and when I reopened it, it opened the two background windows... but NOT the main window that had all my tabs and pages and projects. Thanks, Firefox.

I *could* go through my History, and see if I remember WHEN I accessed each tab, and TRY to rebuild it, but that is INSANELY ANNOYING and takes upwards an HOUR.

Hi all,

After month of using, the screenshot function of Firefox seems to have disappeared. Right click contextual menu does now show the option to take a screenshot and the [three dots] -> Take Screenshot menu action does nothing. Moreover, the icon of the function seems to be missing (see attached images). I run latest (83 64-bit) version on a new MacBook pro.

Thanks in advance, Alex

When I do a search using the address bar, clicking a search engine won't take me to the result directly. Instead a blue box (e.g. @Google) pops up in the address bar, and I have to click one more time to do the search. But the Firefox installed in my office needs one click only (i.e. no blue box pop-up). Is there a way to prevent the blue box from appearing?

I need help! Everyday I have at least 8 Chinese Hackers that show up on on the top in the list of websites visited on my Firefox. The entire page is in Chinese with Chinese pictures. Please see the attached images. I have no idea how long they have been there prior to being so bold to openly show themselves. I certainly have no idea of what they have uploaded or downloaded on my laptop. How can I get rid of them and what can i do to prevent them coming back? I know a lot of weird things have been going on in my computer that I have absolutely no reason nor explanation for. this has been going on for at least the last couple of years or more. I have had 3 computers to crash in a short period of time which I feel they have done. Spyware shows I have had a keylogger for a long time but all of the files it takes me to are protected and I have not been able to delete them. BillCowanjr@gmail.com

Hello,

In the past 2 months i have a weird problem, FF keeps randomly logging me out of my accounts, FB, Yahoo Mail, Instagram, Google Account, etc, it is a totally random event, not on closing or startup, and sometimes even in the middle of a session. I don't have too many addons or extensions installed except Ad Block Plus and Dictionary. I don't use an antivirus, not even the default one from Windows 10, everything is deactivated, and i manually scan from time to time with Malwarebytes, no infections. Also, Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed i have this unchecked as it should be. I also cleared all data, but still nothing, the problem persists. It is very annoying to keep logging in everyday on all my sites and accounts, so please, if u have a solution, help me. :)

Thank you

Hello,

We are using Firefox 78 ESR configured by Group Policies. Nearly everything works as wanted but one thing:

When we start Firefox an update Message with the green update now arrow appears in the menu and as popup. It leads to the actual non-ESR Version of Firefox that is not wanted. When looking at the about Firefox page it shows that the used Version of Firefox is the current (ESR) one and doesn't need the update. I can't find the setting that stops Firefox ESR from checking the normal update Channel for the Update notifications.

every help or hint is appreciated,

with best regards, Martin

When i switch on my computer i have to make sure that i open Firefox and restore the previous session before i do anything else.

For example, if you click on a link in an email - and if Firefox is not open - then it will open Firefox and you have lost access to your previous session tabs.

Yesterday, when i switched on the computer Adobe wanted to remove a program - so i uninstalled the program and then it opened a page in Firefox so i lost 50 tabs. Sigh.

SUGGESTION As well as having the option to restore the previous session could we please have the option to restore the session before that? I think this will make a lot of people very happy.
