I got an error on one of my open or pinned tabs (do not recall which it was). I do not recall what the error was and did not screenshot it because I was sure that closing Firefox and restarting it would fix the issue. I did just that, closed Firefox and reopened it to find that ALL of my pinned and open tabs were GONE. This also happens if another instance of Firefox is opened and I close my main one first by accident and then close the other Firefox instance - ALL TABS LOST.

This is what I have done: • I started to restore the pinned tabs as I could remember what they were but I was not able to remember the open tabs that were not pinned • I searched for lost tabs on the web and on the Mozilla support site but was not able to find any useful help - most of it seems outdated or no long compatible with my version of Firefox. • I looked for the sessionrestore files on my local PC but could not find them - this must have changed in some version of Firefox between version 42 and version 82 that I have. • I looked in the AddOn store to find something that would help restore and prevent this issue - but found nothing. A very old post, from 2012, indicated one that did this but it is no longer available. • All of the Options in Firefox to restore previous session, reopen previous tabs and all that were blank.

This is VERY frustrating in that it results in lots of down time to recreate what was open and is equivalent to working on a document for days or weeks only to find out that the Microsoft file got corrupt or did not save properly.

I am using Firefox version 82.0.2 (64-bit).

Two questions: 1/ Is there any way I can get the pinned and open tabs back from the previous session? 2/ What can I do to avoid this issue EVER happening again.

Thanks!!!!

I use Firefox 82.0.2 (64-Bit) on Windows 10 and Foxit Reader 10.0.1.35811 for reading PDF files. In the FF settings I set the handling of PDF documents to "Open with Foxit Reader 10.0". Once I have done that and click on a PDF file I will be asked what to do with the PDF and I confirm again to open it with Foxit.

That usually works for the moment but FF will always forget this setting again. I have configured FF to use Foxit at least five times over the last days days. But the next day FF will just download the PDF file again and do nothing with it (not even ask me what to do with it).

Any help is much appreciated.

The issue: on all sites, whenever media with audio plays (either automatically, or when I click), the audio stops after 2-3 seconds. If it is video, the video continues to play without sound. When it is audio-only, such as bandcamp, the timestamp stops. Audio resumes playing if I rewind or manually move the timestamp handle (scrubber?) back. This must be repeated each time the media is paused. Audio does not resume playing if play and pause are pressed, or if the site is refreshed.

Troubleshooting steps attempted so far:

  • Tried a different browser. Microsoft Edge works just fine.
  • Allowed autoplay for both audio and video
  • Cleared cache, and ensured that cookies were allowed
  • Turned off all adblockers
  • Uninstalled flash
  • Refreshed firefox settings

I'm at a loss!

When will option browser.urlbar.maxRichResults work as it used to?

I want about 30 - i.e. a full screen's-worth of Rich Results. No problem once - not now.

Something is seriously FUBAR when a once-working parameter can be changed - but no longer has any effect.

Nothing to do with Top Sites, I believe. I know how to change the balance of what is offered.

I just want parameter browser.urlbar.maxRichResults to work again.

My firefox doesn't not startup with previous sessions. it only shows one blank tab no matter what I had when I closed it. happens both when I simply close it or completely quit it. I marked the "restore previous session" on the startup menu in the preference, didn't help or had any change.

The width of news columns have shrunk, and side columns like comments in New York Times have lost both width and height and are in smaller fonts. I normally run most web pages at 120-150% and the larger size seems to not passing on to the side columns. The column width issue also occurs on the Washington Post. The only change has been the Firefox update, and standard rebooting and troubleshooting makes no difference. I need to get back to the previous column and text sizes, including applying increased magnification. Is there any option short of trying to revert to the older version, which doesn't look easy.

FF 82.0.3 Mac 10.12.6

Is this an FYI due to Firefox being too far ahead in the development curve? This isn't a mom and pop website.

For any item at acehardware.com, the add to cart tab (and the add to wishlist tab next to it) are unavailable. The page does not completely load, based on the "X" instead of the 'reload' icon. Other options like product overview do not load either.

I am reporting this because it does load and work in Safari (12.1.2).

Also it is impossible to search for this, as phrases don't seem to be acceptable, and how many hits for 'hardware' do you think there might be? Also, no hits for the one word acehardware.

On four occasions during the past three months, Amazon has refused my log in to their site, stating that I've not used the correct password. When this occurs, I look at my 'password box' and can see that the number of characters (the black dots) are of a far greater number than the number of characters in my current password by more than 200. When I go to 'Security' in Firefox to view my password, it has indeed changed to a random selection of 200 plus characters. When I erase these characters and retype my original password, Amazon will accept the change and I can log in.

My question: Although I don't expect anyone to know why Amazon is doing this, I'm baffled as to how Firefox can be manipulated by Amazon so as to change my password.

Has anyone experienced this and is there any advice? I'm hopeful that an actual Amazon tech will have a response to this as well as the community.

Thank you,

Placerville

Started today and only the Bing page showed up. Tried restoring session, nothing happened.

Searched for sessionstore-backup could find nothing. I am using the latest version of Firefox. Is there a new name?

I want to take and store a session backup as I often work with 20-30 tabs open.

Is it me or have things changed somewhere?

I've tried every solution already on this forum. I've gone from 1) never seeing any history or being able to save a bookmark, to 2) being able to save them and have history while the browser is open (they'd vanish when I'd close it), to 3) now history and bookmarks will stay if I close the browser, but as soon as my computer is turned off and on again, they are gone. So I guess there's progress being made, but I still would like to have a fully-functioning browser. I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox several times, hoping that would fix it. Please help.
