My FF stalled while filling in some information on a site. This is
a lot of text. The spinning pinwheel has been up for over a week.
Any way to start up the browser again without losing the text?
Over a week? Wow!
What version of Firefox? If it is 56 you should be able to use
Autofill Address for the address.
Sometimes just reloading the page with the fill-ins works and leaves the
text already entered there; I conclude that the connection was somehow
broken. Other sites delete all the entered text as soon as you leave
the page for some reason. I regard those sites as programmed ineptly.
It's all a crapshoot, but most annoying when you've had to fill in a LOT
