I bookmark something and it goes to the recent bookmark list but when I click show all bookmarks I get three no title folders. There is nothing in the folder. Where are my bookmarks saving to? How do i get them back so I see them all?

Also i want to add. I backed up my entire pc and reset back to factory in December 2017 I think. And i didn't back up firefox right so I lost almost everything. I had an old back up from 2014 which I used to recover some bookmarks but all after was lost.

Actually my entire computer is weird now I'm locked out of changing all the back up data from the reset but I have accepted it now.

Please help. Thank you.

Since today morning firefox has been starting continuously. At first it was Gah! Something went wrong crashes. I ran a spyware check with malaware and removed a couple of trojans. After that firefox as a whole began to crash. I uninstalled and reinstalled firefox but the issue still continues. I also removed the add ons but nothing is working. Some of the more recent crashes are not visible here.

The last few crashes given here faaa6b3f-3a78-434a-8a14-5c739fa5923b 15-04-2018 15:22 db0dc99c-7ff9-48e2-942e-9d8269bb029a 15-04-2018 15:11 91197efb-ee9b-4328-ab99-725aa3f88ff1 15-04-2018 13:22 d151ea12-f448-465f-82a5-ab1d87fd19fe 15-04-2018 13:19 3bf4c738-cdbb-4049-b2f9-aa04c697de1c 15-04-2018 13:18

tl;dr Firefox sync is constantly synchronising an old set of bookmarks and, potentially passwords etc despite me wanting to upload my changed set. I need to know how to force my current local copy to overwrite whatever is stored in the cloud to avoid having to restore my bookmarks every few hours. How can I do that? The only other option is to disable bookmark sync entirely. This is on Windows 10 running Firefox 59.0.2 (64-bit).

Long version if anyone cares. I like to be thorough.

For the longest time I've used XMarks to handle my bookmarks across multiple computers and browsers and had no issues with it until the past few months. It started failing to sync or would partially sync and I didn't notice because it never gave me any error messages or pop-up warnings. I only found out when I had to format and reinstall because the most recent backup was from so long ago that I temporarily lost a lot of important bookmarks. Luckily, as I used multiple computers I had another computer I could pull them from and did that.

From that point on I've been using Firefox sync as much as possible. However, Firefox has started pulling a set of bookmarks to my computer from the server that is missing a lot of what I use frequently and one of those changes involves overwriting my Bookmarks Toolbar. It literally just happened again as I was typing this out. I can and have restored from a backup file I am now maintaining but every day it will sync and I have to restore from the old backup and it's driving me crazy. How can I force my local set onto the cloud sync so they're matching?

Thanks!

I just downloaded Firefox Quantum 59.0.2 (64-bit).

In the URL dropdown, when I hover over different URLs, the highlight is so pale that it's invisible, so I can't clearly see what I'm selecting. I need to clearly see (in blue background) the item that is highlighted, so that I know what to click on.

Can I change this?

Hello Firefox! somehow you've made it so that my login information isn't held at forums.pelicanparts.com, a web forum that I go to and participate in at least 10 times per day if not 20. I can't keep reentering my username and password, csubmitting and then having to go back to where I am supposed to be. Make a workaround that I can turn your insecure warning system off for this site. I am sure it's a much needed system but also there are a ton of people that are fine with insecure passwords. Please send me a way to fix this ASAP. Thank you!

I am trying to help someone who has a Firefox Add-on that prevents access to adult sites. It works fine and when a blocked URL is entered, this is returned:

The http://www.blocked-site.com domain is blocked to protect this computer from malware or pornographic content.

[NOTE the "www.blocked-site.com" above is just an example; in actuality, the domain is shown]

My friend has created a html file on his computer with a stronger admonition and would like for the browser to redirect to, and display, his custom html file instead of what is currently served.

I am pretty sure something would have to examine the incoming page for some text excluding the actual domain because that would change depending on which site access was attempted. Maybe examine the incoming page for "domain is blocked to protect this computer" and, if present, display the html file. I just don't know how to do it.

I would appreciate any help.

Hello,

My Firefox bookmarks disappeared after System Restore due to the laptop not working properly. The laptop issue had something to do with "user profile service failed the logon". I was unavailable to login to my normal laptop account so I chose System Restore in safe mode, which allowed me to login okay.

But, even though the System Restore message said that the files would remain unchanged, all my files were gone except for the programs/software I installed. I got the document files back but my Firefox bookmarks are gone.

I have tried following the instructions online but I only see the default profile. I didn't backup the latest bookmarks and the 'Restore' option seems to contain only a few items that are from when the System Restore was completed.

Is there any way to get the old bookmarks back please?

Thank you in advance.

Some time ago i had a problem with a malware toolbar. I uninstalled it and got rid of all the extensions and add-ons that were related or even kind of suspicious and it solved the problems. But since I solved this problem, i can't get to set my newtab page, i can only see a blank page. I would like to go back to the about:newtab menu and i know it can't be done with the add-on for that, but i tried to put different urls with it and it didn't work with any of them. Again, this is the only problem i'm having now, i don't have any suspicious add-ons or extensions.

Thanks for the help.

Firefox doesn't randomly load webpages

Hi,

I use Firefox v590.0.2 (64 bits) with Windows 10.

I use Firefox at my work, only for browsing our intranet. I'm a web developer so I load many pages on our intranet. Since a few weeks, I noticed that the pages are not always loaded correctly: the page starts to be loaded, and then it stops and it's loading forever (with the "Waiting for XXX" message at the bottom left). If I refresh the page it will eventually load as expected.

I tried to install a new Firefox on *another* computer, and I use it to browse the same website. And the same behavior appears: it works very fast and well for some pages, and then randomly stops working for some random pages.

On my main computer I tried to create new profiles, delete everything, without success.

I also tried to deactivate the hardware acceleration on both Firefox, without success.

When I check the Network tab from the web developer bar, I can see that some CSS files (it's not always the same, and it can be 1 or several CSS files) are not loaded (see the attachment) and appears with a grey dot, just like if the browser was trying to load them but it cannot, blocking the page. (I've also noticed it could impact other resources, like, at least images)

Before v59 I've never seen this behavior.

Note :

 - our intranet is on Sharepoint, with NTLM auth
 - at home I use Firefox on my personal computer and it works normally (but I don't browser the work intranet)
 - at work, because it's on the intranet, the network doesn't go thru a proxy
 - I'm now using Chrome because of this issue with Firefox, and the problem doesn't occur in Chrome

Thanks for any help.

I'm running 59.0.3 (64-bits) on Windows 10. For example, this site: https://www.bloomberg.com/quote/SMIXVIA:AR looks completely different on Firefox than every other browser I've tried: Edge (on the same windows 10), IE (same machine) and Safari (both Mac and iOS) I've tried it in Safe Mode to make sure it's not an add-on issue and it still looks differently. I'm attaching screenshots from Edge and Firefox, both with Flash disabled. The one with the big chart in the middle is the good one (from Edge) the other one is from Firefox. I'm not sure if it's a CSS rendering issue or if for some reson the site shows different content to firefox (tried useragent override but it changed nothing).
