How can I retrieve lost bookmarks? Syncing between two Firefox browsers replaced my newer bookmarks with the bookmarks of my less-often used browser. I expected the newer bookmarks to appear on the other browser. But instead the more-often used browser now has the same bookmarks as the less-oft used one.

In the new version of the Developer Edition the options "close tabs to the right" and "close other tabs" are in a sub-menu named "Close Multiple Tabs" inside the context menu. Is there's a way to change this so that they will appear directly in the main context menu? I use "close tabs to the right" often and I find this very annoying.

I'm using Firefox Beta on a slow laptop in Linux -so, manually changing videos to 360p from the cog works to make them play smoothly.

If anyone knows of an extension that handles this on latest Firefox Beta let me know. Thank you.

Hello, i've just updated my firefox developer edition from 78.0b9 to 79.0b1 (64-Bit) Now a HTML5 Game in the first tab freezes when i'm opening a website (google or mozilla or any other) in a second tab. Occures with the HTML5 Versions of Shakes&Fidget and Forge of Empires, which i play. No problem with latest version of the normal Firefox (77.0.1 64-Bit) and the previous dev edition 78.0b9 64-Bit. My OS is Windows 10 Pro Version 2004 Build 19041.329

Hi everyone,

I am having trouble getting my custom new tab page to be focused when opened (instead of the address bar).

I am currently using the `autoconfig.js` + `mozilla.cfg` approach to overriding the `AboutNewTab.jsm` service with a custom local file. This is working great with the two files containing this code:

autoconfig.js: ``` pref("general.config.filename", "mozilla.cfg"); pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); ```

mozilla.cfg: ``` // Custom firefox config

let { classes:Cc, interfaces:Ci, utils:Cu } = Components;

try {

 Cu.import("resource:///modules/AboutNewTab.jsm");
 let newTabURL = "file:///home/vallode/Documents/test/index.html";
 AboutNewTab.newTabURL = newTabURL;

} catch(e) { Cu.reportError(e); } ```

I have been attempting to use the `gBrowser` global to add an event listener to the new tab opening, but with no success. Could anyone point me in the right direction for something like this?

When I try to checkout on a site using Shopify, the credit card fields are unusable. The form fields turn into animations, almost like an animated GIF and will not stop. It is difficult to describe what is going on. Here's what it looks like:https://i.imgur.com/mTJfDeD.mp4. I don't know how else to illustrate the issue. This has been going on for the past several versions of Firefox. I'm currently using 79.0b3 (64-bit) on a Mac.

I have the site set as Trusted in NoScript.

Am I doing something wrong?

Since I updated to 77.0.1 firefox has for unknown reason has concluded that there is a system administrator which has disabled updates. It says so in setting (topleft) and in about firefox (instead of update button). I have been able to change all other settings that I know of. I have also refreshed the browser once, disabled all addons once, and deinstalled it to reinstall the latest version once.

Is there a solution for this bug?

I've tried to install several search engines via Mycroft Project to use them through the search bar but that doesn't seem to be working.

I don't get any notice, it just doesn't work.

Also, one of the search engines I've been using (Twitter) seems to have disappeared from my browser. That's what got me to try to install it again, with no luck so far.

(I've dowloaded Firefox Nightly, installed it from scratch, and seem to have the problem.)
