After clicking on Delete cookies and Cache for only ONE particular website, in Cookies and Site Data, Manage Data then closing Firefox and restarting it, it lost ALL of my Tabs, previous browsing session history and my Bookmarks Setting which was pinned on the left side of the screen and the Menu Bar! I tried Refreshing Firefox but that didn't help. Under Startup, I had the box selected to Restore Previous Session. What's going on with Firefox?? This is especially frustrating because I don't have time to waste trying to fix Firefox---especially while simply trying to fix a problem with one website which as made thing worse.

Why should this problem occur and how can I get all of my previous settings back shortly and make then stay?

I notice that since upgrading to version 79.0, I have to click a bookmark twice before Firefox will start navigating to the page.

This occurs for bookmarks, homepage Top Site shortcuts, or even if I type a URL into the address bar and press enter.

The first time I click or press enter, Firefox does nothing. I either have to click again or press enter again. After the second time, Firefox navigates to the page.

It's almost as if the first click is being ignored.

This seems to only occur after the browser is first opened. I can repeat the behavior by closing the browser and then re-opening it.

This was not a problem with the previous version. Only since 79.0.

As the title indicates, copy/pasting does not work.

I'm on Windows 10, have installed Firefox about two days ago (I've recently switched to it) so the version of FF is up to date. I've looked up a few fixes before posting and they didn't work:

- Tried booting FF on safe mode and it didn't fix the issue - it clearly isn't caused by an add-on (and I've never had this issue in my previous browser with nearly the same add-ons installed). - other people seem to have had the exact same issue multiple times and it's lasted for years, so it's clearly a problem on FF's end.

Here is the issue described more specifically: Copying things from a tab from FF and into the online version of Word does not work - when I try to, the intended selection: - disappears a few seconds after I've pasted - or it does not appear at all - or when it does, it erases the entire sentence it was pasted next to it, which you can imagine is absolutely bothersome.

I've also tried to copy/paste statistics from a site called archiveofourown.org onto another FF tab. - What ended up being copied is only the last character of the entire content I was trying to paste, which I think suggests there's some issue with what's contained in the clipboard.

I'm mentioning these two websites because I'm guessing that something about them is probably conflicting with the copy/paste feature, however I'm hoping no one will have the gall to tell me it's those websites' faults and that I should just stop using them.

When pasting (while having hopefully copied the former selected content- and no, it wasn't the case), it always pastes the content which was last copied into the clipboard prior to that very attempt, which shows that the clipboard's content was not refreshed with the last selected copied one.

I'm surprised to see that FF has had such a glaring issue for years and for many other users, and updates have never given a fix for it. I'd like this issue to be fixed properly, because I'd hate to have to switch back to my previous browser. FF sports so many nice features that other browsers don't have, and it'd be a shame to ruin the experience with a bug so basic as the copy/paste feature being broken.

I use the the bookmarks toolbar extensively, I have nested folders in the toolbar. Recently one of my folders disappeared, I blame my wife but it could have been me... I am hoping it got dragged to another folder but have not been able to find it yet. I used the "show all bookmarks" page and searched and found one of the links in the missing folder but I am unable to tell where the bookmark is stored in my hierarchical organization. Can anybody give me some pointers on finding my missing folder?

Thanks!

As a researcher and writer I'm constantly on the web, and have many downloaded book marks that were organized by folders on the Menu bar. But this old laptop seems to crash frequently when I'm using Firefox. After the most recent crash most of the folders had vanished - three did not.

How can I restore those missing folders to the menu bar? Redoing them is a possibility, but would take a great deal of time.

Thanks,

Hi For the last few weeks I've been having a problem with GMail on Firefox. It happens on 2 PCS, a Dell Inspiron 5770 (laptop) and a Dell Inspiron 3264 AIO (desktop) both running Windows 10 Home Version 1903 Build 18362.959 installed in July 2019 and August 2019 Both with Firefox 79.0

These problems occur on Firefox only. They do not happen on Chrome, which I am reducued to using on both PCs for my gmails .They do not happen in a private window of Firefox.

The problems - which I assume are linked due to their occuring in the same time fram 1) On starting GMail by www.gmail.com in the address line, in a new tab, nothing happens. the screen remains blank. I start again, same command, and it changes to https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox and gmail starts. I can stop and start GMail with no problems. If I stop and restart Firefox then the problem occurs again If I start in an existing tab, by typing gmail.com over the existing page address, it reverts to the page address I overwrote. If I start some other page, e.g. Kayak and then GMail: blank page Sometimes if I start anotherGoogle app first, the problem does not occur. It's not consistent the problem occurs occasionally, but not often, with other google Apps: Google, Translate, Drive, Photos, Maps, Contacts, Calendar

2) After running fo some time, GMail seems to lose connection with the internet (a WiFi) It says something like lost connection retrying in 10 s and then 20 s and then more seconds. It doesn't reconnect.

My homepage is an html page with a list of my favourite links; I have been using it for some time and it is the same on Chrome, Opera and Edge

What I have done, step by step I searched forums, including this one. I disabled all add-ons: AdBlock-Plus, FacebookContainer and FoxClocks. I cleared all cookies for GMail I cleared all cookies I cleared history I cleared everything I could find. Sometimes the problem went away, but it always came back.

Any suggestions, workarounds, fixes or just words of comfort would be greatly appreciated.

Current version of FF:

I have html code from a previous, old, project that did run on an office intranet that used Firefox as our internet browser. It's totally basic html. I've tried to get the html code to run on my PC on this current FF browser and it just does not, nor are there any error codes. WHY?

My html has exactly the same opening and closing items as you can see in the book on html for "Dummies."

I need to see the code in operation so I can update to a new project I'm starting. What do I do?

If anyone wants to see my code, I'll gladly post it.
