Greetings,

Today, I went to access my Bookmarks, & found them "Empty", other wise "Missing"!

I found the "How to recover missing Bookmarks" topics, & that did bring back,what I consider to be My "Permanent Books", bu the section called "Other Bookmarks" will not come back, no matter how many times I go through the "Restore Bookmarks".

I Absolutely need that section to be restored, for I had many files in that section that I updated daily, that I planned to move to the "Bookmarks Section".

How can I get get this section restored?

An Evernote contact spent an hour with me and took over my computer with my permission. She could not fix the problem. She said that I would have to create another Firefox Profile. The one I have is broken or corrupted. Here's a note from our session:

Here are the steps to create a new Firefox profile, if you would like to give that a try:

1) Open Firefox profiles page (copy and paste about:profiles to the URL address bar). 2) Find a profile with a label "This is the profile in use and it cannot be deleted" and remember it. 3) Create new profile with any name and location by default. 4) Set new profile as default profile: the image that evidently can't be copied and pasted here states: "Profile: TEST NEW PROFILE, Default Profile yes" 5) Restart Firefox. 6) Install Evernote Clipper 7) Click on Web Clipper icon and check if Clipper menu opens and article is clipped

If this procedure helps, the main reason is a corrupted initial Firefox profile (where the Clipper issue happens.) If this is the case, I recommend using the new profile you just created.

To return to the initial profile, set as default the profile from the step 2 and restart Firefox.

For more information about Firefox Profile Manager, click here.

If this workaround doesn't resolve the issue, please contact Firefox support. I'm afraid I don't have more information about the Firefox profile setup on your Mac.

I did not try that. Thought I'd go to the Firefox experts first!

Hello!

I’ve been having quite strange problem with Firefox for a few months since version 80.X on clean Windows 10 (reinstalled from scratch after secure erase; the latest 20H2 version with all updates installed). It’s worth to mention that I’ve been using Firefox like 15 years and never had an issue like this before.

Firefox just fills up system drive completely (50+GB to 0 bytes remaining) few times a day under active usage. It happens randomly and I can’t identify the reason. I also can’t find any actual files saved on disk because it seems to be related to NTFS cache. I’ve tried disabling the following settings with no success:

browser.cache.disk.enable cached-web-content_cached-web-content browser.cache.memory.enable browser.cache.disk.smart_size.enabled

And couldn’t find any solution unfortunately. I usually have 2 windows opened ("common" and private) with 10 to 30 tabs each which is not much at all for i7/16GB I believe. This problem is extremely annoying and seriously affects SSD life so I'd really appreciate if someone would help me to resolve it. Thanks in advance!

Hi everyone,

I'm on w7-64. I updated to FF86, and there were obvious problems with it, so I installed 84. Works fine, except that now I'm noticing twitter and facebook get slower over time. I didn't notice that before reinstallation of 84.

I just created a new profile and refreshed. Will monitor. But what is the usual issue when firefox is doing this? Basically its not releasing memory correct?

I tried useing Firemin (https://www.rizonesoft.com/downloads/firemin/), and there was a noticable difference with twitter and firefox. But I'd rather just fix the issue instead of using a bandaid if I can.

During the reinstallation of FF84, I did delete a few registry entries (I followed a page like this to do it (https://www.tenforums.com/browsers-email/164280-remove-firefox-completely-then-reinstall.html)). But I don't know how that could effect releasing memory.

I'll keep you updated, but does anyone have any insight?

Thanks!

Yesterday I was using Firefox normally (browsing, Discord, etc.). Today when I opened it, it wouldn't load any page. If I type something in the adress bar it will auto-complete or show suggestions based on google, but when I hit enter, nothing happens. It doesn't even try to load anything. I also can't go into options. When I click on the options button, nothing happens. I am not running in any compatibility modes. I have tried reinstalling Firefox, didn't help. I am not using any add-ons. I have done several virus searches. Other browsers work fine. I'm running out of ideas now, that's why I'm doing this post.

I was very glad with SSB and use it a lot in my workflow but suddenly it stop working in the 86 version update. Now I know that it is no more supported and I started a dangerous practice of installing 85 version and omit updates (in fact this is not too useful because I accidentally update my firefox two times and have to manually reinstall the 85 version). I now this was an experiment but is a shame they stop supporting this kind of progress. My question is, is there an alternative to SSB currently implemented? Which is the closer form of such experience that can I get from command line? I mean: features like new window, no toolbars, independent (no open links in the tabs of previously opened window), could it be resources independence too? Thanks you beforehand.

How do I edit non address autofill data? When I autofill a form, my 1st name comes up correct but last name is all lower case, when I clear the field the Capitalized version is shown. Next time I use the autofill again the small case version appears. A similar thing happens with email address. An old email address (from a prior account) is displayed, but I cannot find any way to get rid of the old email address nor correct it. Everywhere I look on all your instructions, I cannot find any discussion/instructions on how to change Non Address Autofill data. Pleas help as I am getting tired of having to constantly manually change these fileds every time I use autofill. THANKS!!!

hello everyone,


I'm having a trouble that seems to be frequent lately (see below a former discussion), and that is driving me nuts.

I've installed my dictionaries, verified the about.config marks, and still the right click for spell check and language choice has disappeared on my outlook 365 web.

Curiously, it works perfectly on Outlook 365 web on Chrome, and here in this text box on Firefox.

Would anyone have a clue how to fix it? (don't want to have to switch browser from Firefox)


Thank youé1 Daphne

Thank you for your replies all. I have worked it out. The language packs were installed but not "Unpacked" All OK now. Thanks cor-el cor-el

Language packs (strings for the user interface) do not need to be unpacked, but dictionaries always do need to be unpacked (they have an unpack property), so do not mix up these two.

I regularly do repeated tasks in different subject areas, for instance, finance, sports, business, etc.. With each of these, I regularly go to a standard set of sites in different tabs.

How in Firefox can I create sets of tabs such that all I need to do is click on one, Finance, for instance, and have it automatically open the set of tabs that I saved in that set? So, then I could open Sports, and just see the regular set of tabs that I saved for that topic.

In other words, using different instances of Firefox, I could open different sets of tabs without having to open those tabs individually every time.

Hi:

Just installed Firefox on Windows 10. When the installation finishes, the browser window shows two tabs, both crashed. Trying to access any URL also results in a crashed tab.

If I quit Firefox at that point, then attempt to restart the program, I'll get the spinning circle for a few moments, then nothing -- it just won't run again. The installer file will run again, but I'll get the same results.

Thoughts?
