In updating from FF55 to 57, I've seemed to have lost my ReadItLater bookmarks. Pocket asks for a login, which I've never had since ReadItLater stored everything offline, altough I've got a username and password saved in my password manager for "chrome://readitlater" and in my Appdata/Roaming profile I've got a readItLater.sqlite, which I assume is my two-thousand-some bookmarks, but I see no way in which I can import this to the new Pocket system, nor do I see a way to migrate.

Send help, I'm lost and afraid.

I am unable to dismiss the websites in the 'Top Sites' section, which doesn't look that nice, and I miss the Firefox homepage we had previously, with the search bar and the big Firefox logo, it would be nice if we could get that bag, please. And I prefer the way you can access your history as a websites and easily delete it, available in chrome either by searching chrome://history or using CTRL + H and I also preferred the idea of settings as a web page too, by typing chrome://settings :-(

Quickly search a highlighted text on a non-default search engine?

Hi everybody

In previous Firefox versions, you could highlight a text, right-click and select "Search <search engine> for <text>". The search engine would be whichever was currently selected/active in the search bar. This was immensely useful, as it allowed to quickly switch between searching on Google, Wikipedia, IMDB etc.

In todays versions (I am on 58.0.2) it seems only the default search engine is available for quick searching. If my default search engine is Google and I desire to search on IMDB, it seems I must either copy paste the highlighted text or type in in manually and select the non-default search engine in the search bar.

Any hints on how to get the old behaviour back?

Thank you kindly.

When I favorite a webpage 9 times out of 10 Firefox will crash and cause my laptop to stop working, to fix this I have to do a hard reboot (holding the power button) every time, once the laptop has restarted the webpage sometimes doesn't save so i have to repeat the above steps as it sometimes crashes multiple times in a row. This doesn't happen on any other web browser and has only started doing this since the latest Firefox update, can someone explain whats happening?

How do I use firefox to view photo albums on local disk, moving back and forth within a folder, starting with a link like file:///C:/Album1/photo(57)

Environment: Windows 8.1

I have photo albums set up as file folders, each folder containing multiple .jpg files, named photo(1).jpg photo(2).jpg etc. I can open one of these with Firefox using a link like file:///C:/Album1/photo(57)

I want to be able to move back and forth (like to photo(56), then photo(55) ) using the left and right arrow keys on my keyboard.

There used to be a Firefox extension called Slide Show Viewer (now disabled as a "legacy" extension) that claimed to be able to do this, although I was never able to make it work.

The reason for all this is that I have built an HTML index that lets me get to a particular photo, but I also want to be able to see other photos in the same folder.

I want to disable and/or customize certain keyboard shortcuts that come standard in Firefox. I've tried the Saka extension, yet there is zero documentation on either Mozilla's or the Saka developers' end on how to change browser default keybindings. There have been multiple forum threads asking this same question, yet nothing has yielded fruit. Please, I don't want to keep hitting Ctrl + Shift + Q every time I try to hit Ctrl + Shift + A.

Why did you remove the tool that allowed clearing of cookies from the last 2hr, 4hr, and day? Yes I know that I can go through the list now and remove individual cookies and data -- however, tool to remove the last 2hr, 4hr, and day data was MUCH easier and useful.
