Hi there,

I have a problem. I had two windows with aprox 30 really important tabs each open at all times. Somehow firefox closed those two windows when I opened a third window (I don't know why and it doesn't matter tbh) and I didn't notice. I opened other temp windows and because of that the previous two with the important tabs were deleted from the chronic.

Is there any way at all to restore those two?

In my sessionstore-backups directory there are six files. previous.jsonlz4, recovery.baklz4 and recovery.jsonlz4. The other two are upgrade.jsonlz4 with a date at the end. The last one is from 20220630. Could this possibly be some older backup from my chronic with my old two windows? If so, is there a way to restore those? Just renaming them didn't seem to work...

I'd be glad for any help anybody could give me. :)

'Why am I still seeing blinking ads on firefox pages? I thought you totally solved this problem ? I have been using firefox ad blockers for months with great success; but suddenly they stopped functioning efficiently. Since firefox took them OUT OF MY UPPER TOOLBAR SEVERAL WEEKS AGO . 'Thus I have no idea if they are working or not.' There was no announcement of changers or any update that I know of.

Otherwise with no help from firefox, the last resort will be switching to an independent vpn to resolve firefox ad issues... For years I had no issues with firefox or even ad blocking problems; but now ads and firefox's constant need to take TOTAL control of everything has become a major issue.

If all fails, the last hope will be turning to Express VPN...Thanx for any help you can give...rjk

I can only install Firefox by downloading from the google play store. When I do that it installs something but it is not a real version of Firefox. If I download firefox from Firefox web site I get it to install but Google will not list it under browser. I have to use it by clicking on the Firefox icon which is totally separate from Google.This is aggravating. Is there a fix to make it part of Google's browsers? I am using a Samsung Notebook that is Goggle driven. I have the same issue on my desktop computer. Google will not let real firefox as part of Google. Thank you .My email address associated with Firefox is no longer working.

Your updates should be consolidated every 2 or 3 months, and not ask us for updates every few days or weeks. It might seem important to you, but it's super annoying, especially when your automatic updates don't work well anymore. I keep getting a "updates are available" pop-up at the menu bar, and then clicking on it brings me to the download page. I have to download and install every time you bring in a minor update! Also, the school I work in works behind a firewall. Your descriptions and updates always fail their safety precautions, and I have to get the administrator to unlock every time for minor updates! Please organize your updates a little more better.

Hello, I have been using Firefox as my main browser for more than a decade. One could say i am some Mozilla fanboy, having convinced many of my friends and relatives to use Firefox instead of any chrome based options (Which there are to many these days). It struck me today, as i was reworking some workflow elements in many programs i use daily, that it is impossible to change any key binding in Firefox anymore. I know it has been a while now, and i searched all over the web for an answer or a solution, but at this point it is clear that other than going in the code and recompiling Firefox manually, it is not possible. I stumbled upon the (only) extension that allows to change some shortcuts, but the two that i wanted to change are impossible to configure from it, being disabling only f12 as i would use it for other things but i do not want to lose the dev console and also ctrl+L to open the address bar, it is quite inconvenient and would much prefer to use ctrl+spacebar as it matches many other bindings i am using with other software. There have been many other features that were changed in the recent years that made me start to look for an alternative, as i see features melting away almost as quickly as the user base of the product.

I do understand that one person's problem is not going to change the way a big piece of software is working, but i am wondering, why are the users losing such features as basic as customizing key bindings in a piece of software that used to be so incredibly customizable in the past? Why is the only viable option to anything chrome based losing it's edge over the competition? Is Firefox v150 be based on the chromium engine or will it die before?

Thank you in advance, and no, i don't need the link to the shortcut page, i already have it.

Hello,

Since recently the bookmark dialog has changed its behaviour, and to worse from my perspective. If I don't do anything for about three seconds, the dialog closes and the bookmark is saved to a place where I most likely don't want it to be saved. Is there a way to get rid of the three second time limit? Thanks!

It's not necessary to read further to answer my question. Bellow I'm going to give some criticism and express frustration about this new feature (or is it a bug?). The criticism is not directed towards the nice people here who give support to users who have problems.

I understand that developers get new ideas and want to put them into practice, but if you change an often used behaviour like this, I don't think it's user friendly to just change the behaviour without asking the user if he want's that behaviour. Personally I don't see how the automatically disappearing dialog helps me (it's very easy to click Esc if I change my mind about bookmarking a page), but I keep experiencing how it makes my browsing experience worse, as I often pause for a moment for example to think what name I'm going to give for the bookmark, or where am I going to place it.

In practice this change has wasted at least an hour of my time (to find an explanation and (in vain) a solution to fix the behaviour), made me annoyed, and based on the comments here and other places, made quite a few other people annoyed too.

Please, when you change the behaviour of Firefox in the future, before changing the behaviour for an individual user, ask him first if he even wants the change. For example show him a dialog where he is told that "we have this new feature where your familiar dialog keeps disappearing every three seconds for no reason so that you get the pleasure of invoking it again...and again...and again. If you want to have that feature, check the box on the left".

I've noticed that with Firefox 102 when I download an exe file, in this case Thunderbird Setup 102.0.exe it is renaming it to Thunderbird Setup 102.0.exe.bin.

Why is that happening now? I know the "potential risk" or downloading an .exe file but shouldn't it ask or at least warn you instead of just deciding to rename it

I didn't see a setting to disable this "feature". Is there one?

Thanks

Drag-drop bookmarking broken, Firefox 102.0 (64 bit)

I do not know which update began exhibiting this apparent reversion bug, as i have just returned home from several weeks in the hospital due to a heart attack, and do not know how many updates i missed.

When doing a drag-drop of a URL from either a link on a page OR the address line at the top of the browser, I will receive a "sanity failure" error, ranging from an empty NON-URL file, to an OS error complaining about being unable to access an attempted directory destination.

If the link I am dragging is bereft of illegal characters (i.e., ":" -- a colon), the action will succeed.

If there IS a colon, the text to the LEFT of the colon will become the filename. The colon and everything to its right will be truncated. And, the file will be a zero-byte file of unknown (to me) type.

Other illegal characters in the page's Title field will produce more dramatic misbehavior.

PLEASE revert to the previous behavior (i.e., filtering the Title before creating the filename for the bookmark file)!

Earlier versions of Firefox (again, I do not know when this began) NEVER exhibited this behavior.
