My email will not "reorder" I have 10 or so old emails that come to the top of the page, and will not sort?

Email works on other browser's. Firefox has the end of Page 2 on the top of page one?? As I throw New mail's away more come to the top of page one?

Hiya everyone, Well I got a virus today from a file that should of been safe? Anyways I have lost ALL my bookmarks and uninstalled-installed FF, Checked the APPDATA for them and the only file thats large in there is a file titled PROFILE which has a "Folder" and it has in it another file called CACHE2 and then when I go in there it has a Folder with just over a gig of files which must be my bookmarks but they are not in a JSON format or any readable file they are just "Files".

Can anyone help please as I have lost a lot of valuable bookmarks.

Many thanks.

So I want to archive/backup my bookmarks. I see that I can "Backup" and "Restore" to/from a json file, or I can "Export Bookmarks to HTML" and then "Import Bookmarks from HTML". Moz support suggests doing the former, though I know the latter works. Why would I do one instead of the other? FWIW, the html file I get is 8MB, while the json file is just 1MB. This seems positively screwy to have two completely separate ways of doing backups. What are these functions intended to be for? Maybe these are intended to allow porting bookmarks to/from different browsers?

I play Flash games on Kongregate every now and then, but - for whatever reason - Firefox 64 blocks them from saving.

They load OK but something (which must be a new setting that Firefox 64 added) is blocking them from saving new data, both automatically and when I manually click 'save' on games with this option. Nothing is writing to the Appdata folder where the game data is stored (stored as .sol files).

Never had the problem before, and everything works again if I revert to 63.0.3. Any ideas what could be causing it?

Many thanks in advance.

Hi,

I am not sure how to ask this question so maybe telling you the history of what I did will help.

In one of the previous Quantum versions I wanted a different look for tabs and general layout. At that time I found a web page that covered what I was looking for. As I recall, there was some 'text' that I cut and pasted into a folder. That produced the layout you see in the attached screen cap image.

Since the Quantum versions have been updated I would like to remove the layout change previously installed and have the current traditional Firefox layout.

I have searched but am unable to find the original information.

Hopefully someone will be able to help me.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi,

this is my second post for today and again it concerns the Web-Console. The first screenshot is taken from the official Mozilla doku (doku_ff.jpg) and the second is what I see whwn opening the console on my page.

Contrary to the official docu the console does not show the concerned lines of the javascript errors - only the number it happens. ( line two screenshot - underlined red).

How can I find out what lines are concerned?

Very glad for help and wishing the best for the coming new year.

When I first start FF Quantum from the Unity Dash in Ubuntu 18.04, I select "Open a New Private Window". But when the new private window opens the Content Blocking switch is always off. If I open a new tab the content blocking switch will show as on. So, is content blocking on or off after I start the first Private Window?

I have read that this is because of an update. So, I want to completely remove all of my updates back to the one which caused the problem, and prevent Firefox from harassing me to install the new ones.

Hello-

Firefox doesn't save my history with Quantum 64. This is is really frustrating. I had this issue prior to installing Quantum earlier this year. The minute Midnight strikes on my computer and start up FF it only reveals "Yesterday" history but nothing further back in date. I even tried changing the date back a few days for a moment and no previous history appeared. So there is nothing wrong with my clock/date.

Here's what I have done to try to correct /investigate this:

1. Restored FF Quantum. 2. Deleted all the Places.sqlite files and restarted FF to refresh them. 3. Checked Norton 360 to make sure History Clean Up is OFF. 4. Disabled Malwarebytes, IOBIT's Advance System Care 12 and similar programs for a couple of days. 5. I've had this issue before and even tried to reinstall FF and that didn't do anything.

6. Verify Integrity Results:

I run a computer on Windows XP. I have been hesitant to update my version of Firefox because of this problem. My last, fully functional, version of Firefox was version 42.0.x and I have just updated to version 52.9.0 (32-bit). if you need further information about my computer or anything else related to this issue please do not hesitate to ask.

My bookmarks menu drops down just fine, I have links in my Bookmarks Toolbar, and all links are very functional. I click on my Bookmarks menu and go to any link saved in my favorites then click the link nothing happens. The same thing goes for the links in my Bookmarks Toolbar. The only way I can get any links to work is to click and drag them into a new tab. This is not how a web browser should function. Can anyone please help me?

I am using Firefox version 64.0 build ID 20181206201918 on Windows 10 version 1803 build 17134.407.

When visiting 4chan.org images in the popular threads section will not load however when visiting 4channel.org the images in the popular threads section load fine.

I briefly looked at the source code for both pages and I am unable to see any difference as to why this is happening.

When I visit the same sites in Chrome there are no problems.

The troubleshooting I have gone through so far is to refresh firefox (that made no difference), and change the names for the following folders:

%appdata%\Mozilla\Extensions

%appdata%\Mozilla\Firefox

%LocalAppData%Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles

That also made no difference.

Can anyone replicate this problem? If so, is it a bug in Firefox when encountering certain code?

I have attached screen shots of the websites in question showing you what I am seeing.

edit: So I forgot to mention that after renaming the folders for Firefox, effectively resetting it and removing all customization, I immediately tried the web pages in question making no changes to Firefox.
