I'm running Neon 5.15 (Linux KDE desktop running on Ubuntu 18.4). I have been running Firefox Nightly. I reinstalled my OS due to a hard drive issue. Now Firefox sporadically fills my network with chatter, preventing other family members from being able to access the internet. I have: tried installing Kubuntu - same issue renaming .mozzilla and allowing Firefox to create a new profile allowing Sync to provide bookmarks, etc. - same issue disabled all addons: extensions, themes, plugins - same issue used standard version of Firefox - same issue

To ensure it's actually Firefox I've been using Chromium (open source version of Chrome) for the past 3 days and have had no issues. I'm using Firefox to write this but have had to close it 3 times due to network chatter.

Please help, I don't want to use Chromium, I want my Firefox back. I've been using it since version 0.5.

I opened Firefox, it updated, then made Firefox my home page and all the hotspots I had set on my new tab were gone. I had it just as I wanted it and then the update changed it. When I browse to the sites I want to see on my hotspots on the new tab, nothing shows up. It is just a blank page.

If I have two (or more) tabs open for the same website and I want to resize/zoom something on one tab only, the other tab now also changes.

As an example, I will have the Guardian news site open with all sizes of text and graphics as I like them. If there is an article open for comments I open this in a second tab and, because the text of the comments is smaller, I increase the size on this tab.

Doing that made the text on the second tab a nice size for me but nothing on the first tab changed.

Since last night, every time I change the size/zoom on the second tab it now does the same thing on the first tab. I've done nothing different to this laptop nor firefox settings.

What's happened?

I am trying to customize my Firefox on mac so that the menu bar is always displayed. However, looking at ways to fix this I am told to go to the customization menu, click the tool bar drop down menu and click "menu bar". However, I do not have this option. Only the book mark bar is displayed? How do I make it so that the menu bar is always displayed when I browse with firefox? Every time I change a tab the menu bar pops up because I scrolled to high and its impossible to enjoy this browser. I've tried resetting my browser to default settings and this never fixed the problem. Please help!

I've followed the steps listed in many places on this forum and the web. (Thanks to jscher2000 for the excellent tech writing and support.) I've renamed all .jsonlz4 in the <Profile_folder>\sessionstore-backups folder. Sessionstore.jsonlz4 was moved from the <Profile_folder>, recovery-backup.jsonlz4 was copied into the <Profile_folder> and renamed Sessionstore.jsonlz4. Tabs don't restore , the Restore Session button is greyed out, and no tabs are listed in the Show tabs dropdown revealed window.

I know recovery-backup.jsonlz4 has the session I want to restore as I've examined it at https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html. I can restore the tabs from the html file that page generates - but I had about 250 tabs open and that will be tedious. Is there any way to force Firefox to restore that session?

I'm running Firefox 66.0.1 64 bit on Windows 10 Professional x64 v1803 updated with all patches.

Since Firefox 67, in Add-on manager, your shown what installed extensions would work in private browsing:

Also, this link: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/extensions-private-browsing?as=u&utm_source=inproduct

Yet the add-on in question, Lastpass does auto connect on browser close, as it requires cookies.. so i must use "custom setting" with the only option selected "Clear history when firefox closes" as the equivalent to PB.


However i need more info on what it reports in Add-on manager... what is Mozilla saying "This addon "should work" ? or "it will work, but there could be poblem when you restart browser" ?

When I lose Google Plus in April, and with no working replacement... I'll have no use for Firefox. I suppose it had to happen. Google Chrome still doesn't work and IE STILL has too many issues... Neither have Customer Service. Firefox has been experiencing Crashes as of late... With no other choices available... I'll have to close my Account when Google Plus goes Offline.

Hi. I use Firefox from many years. Today I was trying to inspect a my web page which looks strange in my Firefox for Android but I just can't. In my desktop I have Firefox 73.0.1 and in my Android phone I have Firefox 68.5.0. If I try to connect I get a message which tells to update Firefox from 68.5 to 71.0 (minimum supported version) but I can't find this version anywhere. I have installed Firefox Nightly for Developer in my phone but now the problem is that the version is too recent... What should I do?

DDG has been set as my default engine. This (v.63) FF setting is reliable and consistent. i.e. it sticks.

Alas, changing the 'Privacy and Security' Settings in FF wipes out the default DDG Search settings. (and no, this never used to happen).

For example, clicking on DDG's Search Results no longer open in a new tab and all the DDG Search settings are reset to their default. This is consistent, repeatable and happens after customizing Cookies and Trackers in FF Settings. (I have no idea about any other Search Engines)

Yes, I deleted all the .sqlite files and .js files and re-installed FF. Generally I 'pulled my hair out' trying to find the cause. Even add-on offed Privacy Badger, uMatrix & uBlockOrigin (to no avail.)

I don't like to be bald and hope FF will buy me a wig for my travails.

Solution? Keep FF 'Privacy and Security' Settings at their defaults....

Hope this helps someone else as it took me a few weeks... Devs? Hah!
