All this talk of syncing & duplicate bookmarks doesn't explain what happened during the last update of Firefox Quantum (64-bit). I don't have multiple devices, so where are all these bookmarks & empty duplicate folders coming from. There are a bunch of bookmarks outside of the folders they were in AND inside the folders they're in. What the heck happened? Can I go back to the previous version of Firefox? This is a mess, and I really don't have time to read through a gazillion links trying to rectify this issue. I've restored my bookmarks to before this latest update occurred, and it seems to be making things worse. Mozilla needs to post BIG FAT FLAGS when they make a major change to this browser. I would've never let this update install, had I known what it was going to do.
Because I embed folders inside of folders, all the loose ones used to belong inside of folders, and some didn't. Now, I have tons of them where I can't find which folder they were in, because they were embedded. This is really bad, whatever Firefox has done.
Again, 1 computer, 1 device ... WHAT IS IT DOING or syncing to? I'm not using some Add-on to fix this, because an Add-on didn't break it; the last update did! I do have Add-ons, but unless this version is incompatible with them, I have no clue. None of them are bookmark Add-ons anyway. I shan't Share Data this time, because I really don't want people poking around & pointing fingers at my Add-ons. I'd rather be shown how to go back to the previous version, than keep messing around with incompatibilities when Firefox keeps changing. Developers can't keep up with all these updates that come through every other month (it seems). Please and thank you.

I'm using a laptop to configure network devices using their GUI interfaces. Depending on our needs, etc. the connections may be via http or https. AND this condition may change in the midst of preparing a device with new firmware or with a new configuration. It seems that if a device (by IP address) is accessed via https and then the access mode switches to http, it's no longer possible to connect at all. This makes one believe that the device has "bricked" and starting all over is necessary. If the same thing happens again, no matter the procedure, it becomes most time-consuming AND frustrating. It could result in the device being RMA'd or retired. So this is a serious matter.
I have learned that settings can be undone by clearing them. But this is a not-so-often procedure and is a deviation from real work.
Is there a way to have Firefox NOT remember exceptions so that http OR https will work more or less directly when tried on the same IP address?

I posted an ad on "TRADEROO" an Australian ad site. Everything filled ok but going to upload photos it won`t open to upload. I tried on Internet Explorer and it opens to upload. Could it be something after recent Firefox update? see attached
Problem: Firefox Sync encounters errors just every time it syncs according to About Sync add-on (February 16, 2019)

For months (maybe 6-8), every time firefox restarts for whatever reason, the browser windows always change in size, shape, and location. The "default" size always runs off the edge of the screen, which means they aren't functional as-is (whatever's off the screen obviously can't be read or otherwise interacted with). It also tends to consistently move windows to the left, so they're stacked right on top of each other (messily) instead of being spaced out.
I can and do resize it, but it's a complete pain to do so every single time... especially since I use cascading windows to let me navigate between windows easily, so the oversize and overlap means I can't easily access several windows until I do resize and move each one. Since my task bar/desktop is unreliable, I can't use the icons or shortcuts pull up windows unless I can actually click on them on the screen - this problem is outside the scope of the question, of course, it just explains why I cannot find a workaround.
Since firefox usually restarts when updating or other automated restarts, which triggers the windows to change size on restarting, I tried manually resizing the windows and then manually shutting down and reopening firefox to see if that would "save" the new sizes - this was a catastrophic failure, it failed to save or open *any* of my windows, showing no recently closed windows or tabs in history and no previous browsing sessions. And I do have it set up to open previous windows and sessions, I went through and double checked *every* setting after that. I did have session sync going, so I could save some of it - but only some, since session sync fails to save the history of any tab (to show previous pages) and I often stack several related pages in one tab to organize. I have turned to using automated shutdowns (forced shutdowns through the task manager, etc) since I at least won't lose everything that way.
I also tried (based on searching for possible solutions) disabling the window resize line in about:config (from here: https://codeyarns.com/2011/03/25/firefox-disable-window-resize-or-move/) which did nothing
I am tearing my hair out over this, any help would be really appreciated.

Hello, there is a https:// setting that is destroying my charity project and (since my project is about creating funds for many charities), it's affection many other charities as well.
I’ve got a website called Doelshop.nl which raises free donations for charities. This is done through affiliate marketing, someone buys something through my website (I’m just linking through) and 75% of the commission goes to the charity that the buyer chooses. The buyer doesn’t pay anything extra.
PROBLEM with Firefox/Google Chrome
Many charities have applied (because they can get free donations through their users who are already shopping online), recently we have implemented in our system a function where each project can make their own subdomain.
This means, if you have a charity called ABC, you can create ABC.doelshop.nl and automatically you have selected the ABC charity. Very handy for charities, because it’s easy promotion.
Now here’s the problem, we have bought a SSL wildcard certificate to establish https:// connection for all these subdomains.
BUT, some are typing into their URL boxes: www.abc.doelshop.nl and this CANNOT be certified. Technically it can if we manually insert every subdomain into multiple certificates, which would cost us thousands of dollars. Also our subdomains are not set, new ones are being created all the time.
Both Firefox and Google Chrome now always give an error message when people type in their URL address with ‘www.’. People cannot even reach the website, it gives un unsafe warning and shoppers won’t donate for free to their charity.
We have redirected the ‘www.’ to ‘without www.’ but this doesn’t help.
Is there any way where you could help, for example by listing these sub-subdomains as safe? I can give you any kind of openness to prove there is nothing scammy going on.
I’m willing to change these domain setups towards Doelshop.nl/abc instead of abc.doelshop.nl but it takes a while. If you could list it as a safe connection in the meantime that would also mean a lot!
