Every time, you want to search in toolbar and see results with bookmarks as well. It's very helpful. Please update this.

Recently, my Win7 PC failed. I was running the latest Firefox as default browser. Fortunately the C: drive was unharmed in the failure and all data was intact. Unfortunately, after a recent reload of Norton I overlooked including Firefox in the backup data set. My new computer is Win10 (bleagh) with the most current version of Firefox as default browser. What files on the Win7 C: drive contain my bookmarks and how do I get the Win10 version of Firefox to import them?

My bookmarks have been lost. I think they're gone forever. I really needed them for work. A certain person hacked into my 1password account. I know it's "impossible" but not if someone knows you and is determined and smart. Anyway, he changed the email associated with my account, but not the password. I was logging in, and was prompted to enter the "original" email. Huh? I tried various ways to access my account to no avail. I had a recovery key, but no place to enter it. A different email worked. But my bookmarks are gone. Any ideas on how i can recover them?

My bookmarks have been lost. I think they're gone forever. I really needed them for work. A certain person hacked into my 1password account. I know it's "impossible" but not if someone knows you and is determined and smart. Anyway, he changed the email associated with my account, but not the password. I had to restore my computer. I downloaded Firefox and was logging in. I was prompted to enter the "original" email. Huh? I tried various ways to access my account using the email I knew was the right one to no avail. I had a recovery key, but no place to enter it. I was told I'd be sent an email. No.

A different email worked. But my bookmarks are gone. Any ideas on how i can recover them? I really need the bookmarks. And why would they disappear if the password wasn't changed?

I hope I missed something - like a created a second account without realizing it. Thanks for your help.

I would like to check which cookies are set and what content they have stored. Therefore, it is not enough for me to see which provider has stored cookies, by looking at "Settings" -> "Privacy". As far as I know these are stored in the file cookies.sqlite. Is there a way to look directly into this file? Firefox should automatically delete all cookies on exit. Nevertheless this file is 1.5 MB in size. Or is there another way to check the cookies? Thanks in advance. Matthias

Ever since I downloaded Firefox, I have been having an issue where when i click on a link from a search engine, it automatically opens the link in a new tab. I've looked around in the settings menu, but I couldn't find any way to alter it. The closest option would be to open link in new window, but I just want to open the link in the tab that I am currently in. I have tried going into about:config although I couldn't find any setting that successfully fixed the issue. Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated!

Thanks! - T

Good Morning

Today I had to repair Firefox and after restarting, I felt a strange scrolling sensation, it was not the normal Firefox scrolling, I even thought I had openend the wrong browser...so I went check about:config , and found some values where changed as new default values:

general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS 200 general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS 50

I tought it was me the problem so I installed an older version of Firefox (80.0) in order to compare, and found a normal scrolling and those values:

general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS 400 general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS 200

I think this is a mistake from devs, if i wanted to have horrible scrolling, I could just use Edge instead of Firefox, could you please bring the original scrolling back to Firefox?

Thanks

This setting appears to disable playing the animation, but the gif data is still loaded.

Is there some way to disable loading the gif at all?

When I right click on the top bar of Chrome or any other window, I get a menu with items: Minimize, Maximize, Move, Resize, Always on top, Always on visible workspace, Move to monitor left, Close.

When I right click on the top bar of Firefox, I get a menu with items: Pin to overflow menu (grayed out), Remove from toolbar (greyed out), Menu bar, Bookmarks toolbar, Customize...

How do I get the system menu to appear also on Firefox, instead of this Firefox menu nonsense?

Firefox 83 changed how the search engine options work: Selecting a search engine at the bottom of the search panel now enters search mode for that engine, allowing you to see suggestions (if available) for your search terms. The old behavior (immediately performing a search) is available with a shift-click.

I personally use the old behavior (submit immediately after clicking the option) much more often than I need to see the search suggestion. Is there an option to make the old behavior the default without pressing shift?

Thanks!

I have been requested to uninstall Adobe Flash player. I am still using Flash Player for some web sites and am ask to activate before video will work. At the end of the year I am told that Flash Player will no longer work. I asked one of the sites what I should do and they recommended using Chrome and html5 to watch video. I have also checked several sites to see what can be done with Firefox to continue watching video without changing browsers. I wish Firefox would put out a step by step process to fix this problem and allow me to use html5 in a Firefox browser. I am reluctant to uninstall Flash Player until I understand how to make html5 or whatever is required to continue to watch live stream and youtube. It looks like I have until January before Flash Player is inoperative. BTW, I have Firefox version 82, running Win10 with Shockwave Flash 32.0 r0. Jay

Hi, We use Firefox for different Web-Interfaces in our Studio. The used Computer is not (and never will be) connected to the Internet. From time to time we get a message in the upper right corner, that tells us, that Firefox is not able to make updates, because it’s not connected to the Internet. (What we allready know) Is it possible to stop this message from appearing? (It’s annoying, when there is no Keyboard or mouse available to click it away) Thanks for your help!
