A few Firefox versions ago now when I opened Facebook it showed my saved e-mail address to login, and not my password which I wanted NOT saved and still do not want it saved. But now each time I log out of Firefox (and Facebook) and later go into them again it still requires entry of the e-mail address (doesn't "remember" it) - I'm an elderly user and not into the depths of the Firefox settings, but guess if someone could walk me through exactly step by step what I need to do I would be so grateful. I guess it is something to do with "cache" settings??

After update to ver 93, YouTube videos no longer play. The loading circle is going around but it never starts playing. Edge plays you tube videos fine. I cleared cache and cookies, refreshed Firefox, deleted and reentered Firefox in the Windows Defender Firewall, restarted the PC, opened Firefox in safe mode, cycled Autorun, changed playback resolution, no change. Any suggestions?

Thanks, sam4695@hotmail.com

Please assign Firefox Tech help recover my passwords, account and registry. Tried updating Firefox for Win 10. I may have "Nuts-up" and Firefox is now not my default-primary Internet Browser. Please use simple terms, not-PC Geek. Established Firefox account July 2020. Written passwords not recognized by Firefox; stopped trying before I get locked out.

Firefox recognizes email ... @outlook.com, but not ... @gmail.com.

Appreciate Firefox Tech doing Remote accessing and fixing my passwords not recognized by Firefox and establishing PC-Firefox Internet Browser default problems. Please email me when Firefox PC Tech available remote accessing my PC. I am on Maui, Hawaii (Pacific Standard Time).

Tried 9X upgrading to new Firefox version after failing doing "Picture-in-Picture" and "Deleting History."

My PC HP Desktop and OS is Microsoft Win 10, 64 "Outlook is 365 Family" subscription.

I am having a problem where when I click on .package files to download them, I am always getting a pop-up box making me choose what to do with the file, and I am never given the option to 'always do this with this type of file' or anything. I went into settings hoping to make this change manually, but .package files were not in the list of content types I could set actions for - no matter what website I was downloading from. Additionally, during the same session, I downloaded a .zip file and DID have the option to check off downloading as a default action. I recently got a new computer and was expecting to have to reconfigure some things, but I can't figure out why I can't set a default for package files in particular. I download a lot of them as mods for the Sims, so this is very frustrating lol.

My youtube downloader button disappeared entirely. So that downloader wouldn't work any more. And I couldn't find one to install that would work. I've supposedly now got 'easy' and 'fast' downloaders installed but 'easy' doesn't show and 'fast' isn't. Any clues on what's a good one that I can install and will work? All of this happened mysteriously mid session. Or perhaps between boots, I don't know. But I mean not that I know of because of anything I did with firefox and no great new instals or anything. I think firefox did it. It sometimes is suspiciously slow to come up.

I've got a Macbook pro and love using the swipe gestures for productivity but sometimes it can make certain websites (e.g. Google sheets) frustrating to use.

The issue is that the swipe right feature has 2 main functions on firefox:

1. Go backwards a page 2. Scroll left on the same page

It becomes an issue when I zoom into a slide/image/etc. and I just want to scroll left but it's interpreted as going back a page instead.

It would be ideal if there was a way to prevent the 'go back' (swipe right) feature for a second, thereby using the scroll function instead... this could be done by holding cmd and swiping right to disable the back page function. There is a similar app called Forky Slide Scrolling Stopper, which prevents the 2 finger scroll up/down from changing slides - it would be good to have something like this for the 2 finger scroll left/right.

My question is - is there an add on or app that allows this feature?

Recent changes seem to ignore the setting for a specific HOME page upon START-UP. Right now, the last page accessed before closing Firefox IS loading - not the setting of a specific HOME page - in my case, Google.com. I have cleared cache twice and no changes. So, e.g. - if I was on Facebook and close FF, the next start of Firefox opens now to Facebook. That setting is NOT enabled! Please advise/correct.

I Lost my FF session, (not sure what I did, but the menu toolbar shortcuts were gone & I cold not 'click' them back, so I figures I would just reboot FF.

Some dialog box popped up (I don't recall exactly what the box said, but offered me a choice to CANCEL or CONTINUE. I hit CONTINUE. FF Shut down, and when it reopened a couple of my FF windows were missing, but the toolbar shortcuts were restored.

So, I figured I would restart FF a 2nd time. Well, still missing a few windows. FF session still open.

I am looking at the session files, and trying to determine which session file do I copy, and to where, to try and get old session restored, if I can?

I tried loading the larger 58,175 KB file from 7/16/21, and it crashed the scrounger page.

I am loading a smaller in 56,853 KB file from 10/8/21 (today's date) into your SCROUNGER page, and it has been running for 10 minutes now.

I thought it might be simpler to just copy or rename the correct file (after backing them all up) into the file that will be used after I close, and restart my current FF session & just look and see what FF opens. I just don;t recall which file FF uses for each new startup. Is it recovery.jsonlz4? previous.jsonlz4? something else?

I've uploaded an image, of the screen capture, of a few of my most recently dated session files, in this folder:

My Firefox keeps loading blank pages. I have to right click on it and choose reload. also while viewing facebook movies while its playing it freezes you can still hear sound but video freezes for 3 seconds then plays and will do it again a few minutes later. This happens every time there is a new release of FF. I have uninstalled FF and reinstalled it. Also started in safe mode and it seems to work but comes back later.

I'm trying to login to Firefox on my new computer but I keep hitting a wall. A long time ago (like years at this point) I used a previous email address. I've since changed the main email and the back up email to different ones. I'm trying to sign in and it sends an email to my main email. I get the email, use the code, but it jumps to "incorrect password" and displays the very, very old email as the account I'm attempting to login to.

I've tried clicking on "use a different account" but it just restarts the entire process. I also tried to add a recovery key but it just keeps saying "try again in 15 minutes" even though I tried about 5 hours apart. I don't know why my sync still thinks I'm using an old email address when I've had it changed for years. This has happened before but I was always able to somehow get in and sign in.

Is there some way I can fix this?

Under normal circumstances Firefox appears to load web pages fine. As soon as I turn on Mozilla VPN and try to reload a browser tab I already have open, it behaves as though I am not connected to the internet. Other browsers do not experience this issue. Even after disconnecting from the VPN, Firefox only regains the ability to load web pages after restarting it.

I have tried using a private window with no add ons and there was no change. I have also tried refreshing Firefox. That does initially fix the issue but as soon as I close Firefox after refreshing, the issue returns. I would prefer if I didn't need to refresh Firefox every time I want to use Mozilla's VPN.
