Why does clearing my browsing data delete the "top sites" symbols pinned to my home page? I use these sites every day and don't want to have to replace them every time I clear my browsing history. Other browsers leave them in place. Is there a way to keep them there unless I intend to delete them?

Does anyone have experience with this phenomenon:

When you click on a torrent link on a page opened in Firefox 83 (and above), the first window pops up, but the second one (in which uTorrent would come) is no longer. Nothing happens. Specifically, the entry is C: \ ProgramData \ Microsoft \ Windows \ WER \ ReportArchive \ AppCrash_uTorrent.exe....

If I revert to Firefox 82 or 78.6esr, the error will not occur.

If I choose not to download uTorrent but to download the torrent file, it works fine with all versions of Firefox.

Fresh Win10 install, when NORD VPN is on, I'm experiencing CAPCHA gateway issues for google search and other websites. Once I complete the CAPCHA, it loops back to "i'm not a bot" and it is endless (on google). Other sites just indicate the wrong input endlessly.

I changed my cookie policy from 'strict' restrictive (my old default) to 'standard', which hasn't helped. Shutting off Nord resolves this issue. I didn't have this issue before my fresh install with FF & Nord; and I don't have this issue with Chrome.

Thanks for any insight.

Firefox is crashing almost immediately after loading a page. Sometimes it crashes while loading the page, sometimes I can scroll down or click a link, and then it crashes. Biggest issues are on Reddit. I'm able to browse the Firefox support pages with minimal issues (although it has crashed once or twice).

Crash happens in Safe Mode. (I'm in safe mode right now and it just crashed) I did a FULL clean install about a week ago. (actually did it twice just to be sure)

Not sure what info you need in order to help, but here is some of the crash report from the latest one today.

This happened very suddenly, and in firefox as well as opera browser. Video files and GIFs display as moving vertical colored lines, like aurora borealis. This only applies to files embedded in mails, messenger or social sites, not sites like youtube - those play just fine. Video and GIF files saved in my desktop are fine as well. Issue arose about a week ago, I am stumped! Any suggestions?

When closing the last tab, instead of closing, Firefox restores a tab from a previous session. This session history can also get queued, so if I have closed Firefox with a tab open on more than one occasion, it will restore that many times. Once closing this restored tab, it does appear to remove it from the old session 'queue'.

When I close the last tab, it should _never_ restore an old tab. I'm fine with an about:blank or something similar (closing the browser is preferred), but of all the actions to restore a session, closing the last tab is wildly unexpected.

I was using the beta update channel, but with the recent release, I downloaded and installed 85.0 instead of upgrading to the 86 beta. This seems to have worked fine, but About Firefox is still showing me as being on the beta update channel and asking me to upgrade to the 86 beta. How can I get on the release update channel so I can turn on automatic updates again?

Hi all,

I am running into an odd issue and I am stumped on what to try next. As you can see in the attached images, I am running into a problem with select dropdowns. The first dropdown is from https://www.raspberrypi.org/products/raspberry-pi-400/ (Buy Now and click country) and the second is from this Mozilla support page. Long story short is dropdowns are messed up in my default profile. I have done the following to attempt to troubleshoot the issue -

1) Restart Firefox in Safe-Mode without addons 2) Refresh Firefox 3) Delete the Firefox user directory 4) Create a brand new profile and launch into the new profile (This works but for some reason but it can't be my default profile) Default profile fails to work but others don't. If I set my newly created profile as the default, then the new default profile doesn't work. Odd.

Anyway, if anyone has any insight on fixing this issue then it would be great. The dropdowns have been broken for a few months but I have just dealt with them. Thank you for any help over the topic.
