I installed the IDM addon and it caused my browser to revert back to an earlier version, thus corrupting my places and favicons files and causing me to lose five years worth of history. I have sqlite3 and I have tried seeking help from many different places, but I'm a neophyte when it comes to command line stuff and a lot of the information I have come across is either impertinent to those specific files, outdated, or has dead links. At this point, I'm willing to give the files to someone more tech savvy than I am so that they can fix them for me if I have to.

Please help me, either through instructions, or through direct repairs. If it's not possible, I can sync with my other devices and import six months worth of largely similar browsing history, but I'd rather it not come to that.

Hello. Late yesterday all of my bookmark folder contents became empty. I tried unsuccessfully to restore. Was able to import into Microsoft Edge and then import into Firefox from Edge. Bookmark folder contents were initially visible in Firefox but are once again blank. Bookmark folder contents are still visible in Edge. I sync Firefox between my Samsung S8+ and 2 Windows 10 Pro laptops. Please help.

I truly hope the developers at least refer to this site for concern requests for fixes.

It seems every about:config fix for the spacing of the bookmarks as well as the photon/proton fixes are doing nothing on Firefox version 91.

Is there anyway to get a simple checkbox that fixes the views for desktop? The whole world is not working on tablets or phones and this is so frustrating to see functionality continually broken with updates that are obviously required because of security issues that plague the online world.

Can any developers please respond to when users can see a fix to this issue? I know this is far from life ending but it breaks the visual aspect of the browser so badly.

Hello helpers! I have lost my bookmarks and several add-ons after latest install (77.0.1). I can't find old profiles to use and restoring to an older bookmarks backup doesn't work either; I get an error message "unable to process the backup file - but it does at least see the last relevant version from 10.6.2020.

To compound the problem, whist working my way through several solutions offered on these forums, I hit the Refresh Firefox button, which created an Old Firefox Data folder on my desktop - but seems to only contains the new stuff after today's upgrade) AND I also reset my Firefox password and got the message that Personal Data will be lost so that has added to the problem. Basically a massive mess!

Can I revert to the older Version of Firefox or using an old computer backup or is there another way to fix this?? It's nearly 3000 bookmarks going way back to 2014 - I'd be gutted to lose it all.

I appreciate any help - thanks in advance! Nicole

When I try to create a New Bookmark I find that the folder has already been allocated. It is usually the last used folder number. Also, I am unable to cancel edit, or remove or perform any other changes. Going to Firefox safe mode or other recommendations makes no difference.

The problem happened for the first time last week and it was, strangely, only by doing a complete System Restore that I was able to get things back to normal. That seems like a severe remedy every time it happens. I would really appreciate help with this.

I use the Bookmarks Bar extensively. But all the folders are the same color. I would find it much easier to find things quickly if I could change individual folder colors.

Any way to do this?

I'm already using Jscher's excellent UserChrome script to make the folders an attractive yellow, instead of gray. But can this be done for individual foders?

Hi there! Since FF 91 all menu items have an incredible vertical spacing, the menu item is twice as high as before. This is a nuisance especially in the bookmark menus. I would like to have the narrow menu item spacing back, without being urged to install an AddOn or to learn CSS programming or to file a bug in this peculiar BugZilla system. Think of our family of USERS, not developers.

Yes, I understand the circumstances of free software. Yes, I see it is necessary to keep up with modern UI design and the so-called technical progress. The FF 91 UI changes slightly towards what we expect to get in Windows 11. Fine! Also, it is absolutely clear that the new menu line spacing adds more comfort to the FF usability ... on tablet PCs and smart phones. But NOT for desktop users.

As far as I know, Microsofts plans for Windows 11 still include a setting to keep the old narrow menu item height. Mozilla should do so, too. I hope the developers will take care to not lose contact to their users.

The latest Firefox update forces my bookmarks folder to be double spaced between bookmarks and folders making it too large for my page. I have to use the navigation arrows to access all of it's folders.. and the folders inside the folders too. When I used to open bookmarks it was about half my screen high now it's a screen and a half. I've temp returned to the previous version but would like to keep updating to keep up with security patches.

I'm using Firefox version 92.0 (64 bit) on an HP 350 G1 notebook running Windows 10.

It seemed that it was after the 92.0 (64 bit) update that I cannot open bookmarks that are PDFs. The correct URL is present, but nothing loads, it's just a blank black page. I have tried turning off the add-ons and refreshing the page, closing and reopening Firefox with the add-ons manually turned off, restarting Firefox with the add-ons disabled, and restarting in safe mode. All of the attempts were performed without any positive results.

I can copy the URL on Firefox and paste it in Edge, and it opens the correct page. I installed Chrome against my better judgment and pasted the URL, and the correct page opens again. I can copy the URL in either Edge or Chrome, paste it on Firefox, and the same results occur as if I clicked on the link in my bookmarks on Firefox. I can click on the bookmark from either the home page or a page that's already opened, and nothing happens. The URL doesn't change on the existing page, and on the home page, "Search with DuckDuckGo or enter address" in the UL space does not change to the URL that I'm trying to open. Is there something I'm missing?

This is one of the URLs that I am trying to open if you want to try it yourself on Firefox: https://www.att.com/idpassets/images/support/wireless/Devices-Working-on-ATT-Network.pdf

I only ever use Edge when I'm having an issue with Firefox, (usually it's when I'm trying to log on to an account or something and I can't, then I realize that it may be one of my add-ons preventing it. I then disable them one by one until I'm able to achieve what I want.

I don't want to have to switch back and forth between Firefox and Edge just to view three PDFs, so if someone knows what could be the resolution to this, I would appreciate it greatly.
