Dear Firefox,

Yesterday 1-2-23 I lost my tabs. When I tried to restore them I followed the suggestions listed in "help". I clicked on the "menu" on the top right of my browser, found the "history" and selected it. The "restore" option did not appear. On my macbook pro 2012 os 10.13.6 I had 3 "desktop" selections. I had a browser window on each of the desktops that held multiple tabs. The third "desktop" was the "dashboard" which mostly had widgets. Somehow the browser window from one of the Desktops was applied to the dashboard and when I tried to remove it the result was that it closed and was removed from all desktops.

How can I find the sessions or tabs that were present on Jan 1 or before? I'm not that tech savy and would love to be able to speak with a real person that would be able to walk me through a solution if there is a solution.

I have the option 'Show editor when saving' checked, so I'm getting the bookmark editor popup window when I want to save a bookmark .

However, more often than not, a bookmark is being saved without me clicking the Save button .

My understanding is that it's a feature of sorts, but it's driving me bonkers, and I just can't remember what I need to do to not save a bookmark - hit esc. , click the star button again, use the keyboard shortcut, or whatever it is . Nor do I care to be frank, I really just want Firefox to not save a bookmark without confirmation , which I thought would be the main point of having the optional editor window .

Is there any way to disable autosave for bookmarks completely ? Sorry about the rant, it's just so unintuitive and annoying, and I'm tired of cleaning out my bookmark folders all the time ...

when I'm in eBay I can not open links to "contact seller", "view other items" "visit store" This seemed to happen with one of the Firefox updates. I used to be able to click on these and open them up. This is driving me nuts. I can open them on Google Chrome or Safari.

UPDATE - - problem solved - - Using Firefox Troubleshooting Mode I found that the problem was ''''caused by an added extension '''' which has been turned off (I hope) One thing I don't understand though is that I fixed this in Firefox but it also fixed it in Chrome. All images show up in both, so how does one browser fix a second browser? I have yet to check Safari but I never use that one anyway, so I'm not going to push my luck! Thanks Terry.

- - - I have a LOT (hundreds) of images that do not show up on many pages and each one is labeled,

403 Forbidden in the Network Monitor.

There are images that do show up on the same pages and the amount varies.

Those are labeled with a green 200.

What causes this and how can I fix it so they all show on the pages?

and do I have to fix each and every one? That would take months.

Thanks

Firefox did some update and bookmarks disappeared. So I tried to restore the backup and it is also empty. In fact all the backups seem to not populate any bookmarks. I have another laptop and airdropped the backup file to that laptop to see if I could get the bookmarks back on firefox on there. It worth pointing out that firefox was not updated on my other laptop. When I tried to restore on the other laptop is erased the few bookmarks I had there but didnt give me the missing ones. So now I have 2 computers with no bookmarks.

Please help! Tried to restart , shut down, multiple times and nothing is working.

MacOS 10.13.6

Firefox updated to : 115.1.0esr (64-bit)

I often visit the website rsn.org. This is a media site that allows people to post comments. In the past, I never had a problem using Firefox and the pages always loaded with the comment section at the bottom.

Starting this past week, the comment section is no longer visible. I did not change any settings in Firefox nor did I upgrade my OS or anything else. I queried the site owner to see if there were problems or changes that could have instigated this but there were not. I copied the url into Safari and was able to see the page as it should appear.

WHAT HAS FIREFOX DONE AND WHY??? I have read all the articles but nothing seems to address this problem which is clearly of Firefox' making. Why is Firefox blocking this access and how do I get them to stop?

I tried starting with all extensions disabled - same results.

Is the development crew monitoring this? Something changed with this release that's causing this. I wouldn't mind if it didn't work, but crashing the browser is a no-no.

During an initial visit to slashdot.org Firefox hangs for approx 45 seconds while the status bar says "looked up a.fsdn.com." Subsequent visits during the same browser session load promptly.

This is with Preferences -> General -> Network Settings -> Enable DNS over HTTPS -> Cloudfare or NextDNS. With Firefox DoH disabled the problem is not present. [Interesting side, the machine's systemwide DNS settings are configured for Cloudfare 1.1.1.1 ]

AFAIK all other sites load normally. I've been using the Firefox DOH for several months with only the above site as a problem.

Ideas?

Environment: Firefox desktop 106.x and 107.x macOS 10.13.6 The problem is present in "Troubleshoot Mode" when Firefox DOH is enabled.

Hi, Am backing up a laptop that needs to go overnight to a repair shop and want to wipe it clean for privacy. Will the passwords saved by firefox be saved in the backup as well?

I've also downloaded them to a csv file as an additional precaution, but have no idea how to reload them into 'saved passwords' after the repairs are complete, as no option is provided for that - only the option to import from another browser... Thanks for your help!

PS: also, why does mozilla require a manual login to this support forum when my login is saved in it's own password saver?? It is not auto-filling it as expected.
