Is it possible to combine history/bookmark files? Firefox has truncated my "History" to 15 days and the only option I see to get elder entries is to combine a backupped history file with the current one. An easy-to-use tool for this task would be welcome. I did not change my config options after the update to 121.0.1 (64-Bit) (Windows 10pro) but I think I had the total history (from years) before the update. My current Options related to this topic are: browser.history_expire_days false places.history.expiration.max_pages false places.history.expiration.transient_current_max_pages 501234 privacy.clearOnShutdown.history false privacy.history.custom true history (*) Boolean Number String

I already sreened Help files of this Forum concerning lost history data but they all do not give sufficient answers or I do not understand them (as a German user). Thanks. Martin

Recently after signing in to Pocket, all my tags disappeared. They can still be seen at each individual entry, but not on the list of tags. Any new tags I added also don't appear in the list of tags, which is completely empty. Searching for tags also gives no results. I tried to log out and log in again, but it had no effect.

I have been using Firefox for many years and I have never had problems, until now, out of nowhere Firefox closes and the little window opens that the report is being sent to Firefox, but I can no longer restart or open Firefox, until I reset the computer, This can happen one, two, three and even four times a day, making it very uncomfortable to reset the computer.

I have already tried many ways to solve the problem, from completely uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling it, I use very few extensions, I already disabled WebGL and also disabled hardware acceleration, nothing has worked, when Firefox closes, I cannot open Firefox Developer either and That browser was not even open at the time of the failure with Firefox.

System 3.4 GHz Intel Core i5 de cuatro núcleos NVIDIA GeForce GTX 775M 2 GB 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 macOS Ventura 13.6.3

  1. 1 I set the Manage Data tab to 'Allow' for sites I want cookies saved for. This sets the http and https addresses for the sites I enter.
  2. 2 I set the same sites in the 'Manage Exceptions' tab so that these sites do not have their cookies deleted.
  3. 3 Save Settings
  4. 4 Close and re-open Firefox. All cookies are deleted.

I suspect this is a bug?

I see where other people have posed this question but the procedure offered is not available to me.

I am using Firefox (Flatpak) version 121.0 on an Ubuntu 22.04 laptop.

On installing a new extension I should either see the extension's icon on my toolbar or else have a clear means of adding it. I have neither.

Clicking on the jigsaw icon in the toolbar, I get migrated to the about:addons page. On clicking the Extensions tab, I get the screen listing all installed extensions. Each extension has a ... icon beside it. But when I click on this, there is no "Pin To Toolbar" option.

What is wrong here ?

I've looked at various suggestions to fix the above-reference problem and have checked that "open previous tabs and windows" is checked and that "clear history when Firefox closes" is *not* checked. But nothing is working. This started happening only a week or so ago.

I had to quit Firefox and restart to get rid of it. See attached screen capture.

On eBay, on the orders page, near the top of the list is a checkbox which when checked should cause the entire list of orders to all become checked, allowing a single operation to apply to the entire list of checked orders. Checking this box is not causing the list of orders to become checked. It works in Firefox private mode.

The problem is not being caused by any of the extensions - it persists after disabling every extension.

Firefox crashed, Reinstalled it v121.0.1 Win Pro 10 (x64)

Although Extenions are reinstalled, I cannot find any way to get them into a toolbar now, (Using the Drag - Drop - Shift method)

There is supposed to be a "Gear alongside each extension" so that can be chosen, but no gear which works now.

Very frustrating as cannot properly access these extensions now.

Some time ago, I found the way to inser these Extensions (Addons) into the Toolbar, but cannot remember how I did it.

The Extensions show they are installed and "working" but it's rather useless nmot being able to get the shortcuts for each onto the Navigation Toolbar.

Appreciate help - Thank you.

I asked a question earlier about being blocked from a site that I frequent while using Firefox but not when using Edge. I don't use Edge much but another difference has become apparent. Many of the sites like news sites an information sites seem to take longer to open than they used to on Firefox, I can see little icons going back and forth in the tab at top. Normally this lasts for ten seconds or so then the site I was after appears. I was on Edge and noted that this was not happening. I spent several minutes going back and forth and I definitely have an issue with Firefox. I have Windows 10 running on an old desktop. I use Express VPN I use BitDefender In Firefox I use Adblock Plus, Ghostery, I use Duck Duck search

Do I need a new version of Firefox or what? It says it is up to date 121.0.1 Have been using Firefox for years and not had any issues like these. Mark
