Firefox did some update and bookmarks disappeared. So I tried to restore the backup and it is also empty. In fact all the backups seem to not populate any bookmarks. I have another laptop and airdropped the backup file to that laptop to see if I could get the bookmarks back on firefox on there. It worth pointing out that firefox was not updated on my other laptop. When I tried to restore on the other laptop is erased the few bookmarks I had there but didnt give me the missing ones. So now I have 2 computers with no bookmarks.

Please help! Tried to restart , shut down, multiple times and nothing is working.

Linux 115.1esr popup/ephemeral windows not working correctly under TWM window manager

Just being a 'user' , this is simply to report (and hopefully get it all working again) to the greater good on here and at Mozilla, that popup/ephemeral windows , or whatever they are called, in the 115esr release no longer function correctly (they did with the previous versions) with TWM window manager in this experience.

When clicking on a tool bar icon that launches a 'popup' type window, or in forms using 'drop down' controls for example, as soon as mouse moves over the popup or the popup gets focus, the popup gets closed immediately; it does not stay around to enough to allow a selection or whatever, as it should.

If one can 'tab' into a popup and use the keyboard (keyboard focus so to speak), then it is possible to access some options. The keyboard focus does not seem to cause an immediate close like the mouse does (as above).

As an aside, Chromium suffers the same now

It is something mouse related it seems and with how it all works with TWM - which is old, but as said, there was not a problem previously so whats changed in this version of Firefox browser to introduce this 'bug'.

Peace and best wishes to all Habs

Every time I open Firefox, my open windows open, as they should, except the front tabs in as many as half of windows get stuck trying to open! The screen is blank, and you can see the spinning wheel in the tab window above the toolbar. Usually, if I click to stop it, then hit the refresh button, it will finally load the tab. Why can't they all just load, for while they don't, FF will still run up nearly all my RAM, maybe trying to load takes more juice. I don't know, but it's not supposed to be doing this. Opening tabs if a pretty fundamental function of any browser...

The Firefox file "chs_intelligence.json" appears in the main hard drive of my Macbook Pro laptop, along with more of these files with names such as "chs_intelligence.json.15q0fp" etc. What is the function of these files, and can I delete them without disrupting the functioning of the browser?

I have a neuro issue where these trigger my migraines.

And they've become standard web design.

I currently reduce layout.frame_rate to 1, which *helps* unsmooth scrolling animation. That's often enough to navigate pages with narrow sidebars, or with good visual contrast between the sidebar and the content. But it's not enough on pages with extra-wide sadobars and no visual contrast, such as Wikipedia's "Vector" redesign, or the Internet Archive's latest redesign:

https://en.wikipedia.org

https://archive.org/details/texts?tab=collection

I can force Wikipedia into mobile, which helps, but I'm not aware of a similar fix for the Internet Archive, and really need a global fix.

I can get reasonable behavior from the Internet Archive if I reduce the window to about 640 pixels, ... but instead of a non-scrolling sidebar taking 1/3 of the screen, I end up with a non-scrolling desktop taking up 2/3 of the screen!

The settings page just shows a number, but no units as on my laptop's default font settings page. I think that they are pixels, but I'm not sure. I want to set my font sizes in points, so that the text will appear the same size on my laptop's screen as on my much larger external monitor.

how to disable automatic redirecting to another version of the same site

Hi,

right now, my problem is with this site eyerim.com. I am in Hungary, so when I type eyerim.com into the address bar, I get to eyerim.hu instead, with a Hungarian translation of the homepage.

But I did not ask for effing eyerim.hu, with its shitty or maybe non-shitty Hungarian translation. I want to see the original homepage, but if I type the eyerim.com address the hundredth time I still get eyerim.hu.

Now, to be clear, in this specific case I managed to get around the problem by typing eyerim.com/blog, and voilá. But I don't want to have to look for bypasses, I want Firefox to PREVENT any such automatic redirections. How can I do this?


Thanks
