Hello, I have my Firefox bookmarks separated by folders according to the theme. Every time I use the 'search bookmarks' option, firefox shows me all the hypotheses based on my search but hides the folders and doesn’t show me in which folder the bookmark I looked for is located. This way, I always have to do a search because I still don't know what folder it is in unless I remember it again or browse through all the folders until I find it. Is there any way to do this? Thank you.

So, I've had this problem once already and solved it. Mozilla updated automatically and I lost all of my tabs (over a 100 tabs, mostly with books I wanted to buy / compare prices), couldn't restore the session and had no history. After a dramatic and prolonged freakout, I actually found help on this site and managed to open the correct upgrades.jsonlz4 files with the jeffersoncher scrounger website. I meant to save all of the links in a word file since I no longer trusted firefox to open my tabs after an update, but real life happened. I kept putting it off and was content to have the tabs on hand as a list on the scrounger website. But then ANOTHER automatic update happened and now I no longer find the old .jsonlz4 file - I have a few really old ones (from 2017 and 2019) but the one from around the time period of the first tab loss only has tabs about restoring lost history. I now, just as before, again have no history to find the tabs with the books I want that way. My question is: I would very much like to have those tabs back - some of those books were meant as gifts and finding them the analog way is possible, but very time-consuming. Is there any way I could find the correct .jsonlz4 file (I even remember the date it was modified as shown in file explorer - or should I just give up the whole affair as lost and no longer waste time on it? I'll try reinstalling firefox after I post this message, but given that it didn't work last time, I'm not very optimistic.

Thanks in advance, all the best Ana

Reviewed "Sheribee" earlier issue which apparently involved a VPN. I do not have a VPN but have tried several times in the past week to access IRS refund status site without success. I can get into irs.gov, but am unsuccessful in accessing the refund status site after entering required input data. The issue has occurred only this past week.

I'm unaware of IRS issues causing this problem.

Have not had this issue on any other sites; and I have successful retrieved data in prior years.

I am not saving any sign on protocols with the irs or any other sites.

Running Windows 10. Thanks for any help. BTW I did get refund information using the telephone, but I want to ensure there's not a hidden conflict of some sort with FireFox. Thanks for any help.

I'm using Firefox 85. Windows 10. Started happening 2 days ago.

I've come across some sites that are giving me errors, but they work fine in chrome.

Things I've tried:

  • Restarting computer
  • Restarting router
  • Disabling Firefox addons
  • Clearing all cookies + history
  • Clearing cache

Below is what happens when I try to sign into the Playstation Store. Also getting similar 406 error trying to access Yamazaki Home

Example: When I click "SIGN IN" on the Playstation Store page, I'm met with a 406 error.

These are the headers that are returned.

It's not under the Bookmarks icon, either. the "Pocket" icon is in the menu bar, and I can save items to Pocket, but can no longer locate the page with the articles. "View List" does appear when you click the Pocket icon, but it also saves whatever page you're on whether or not you want to save it.

Firefox has been saving images from some sites as webp instead of JPG for a long time. There have been repeated threads on this subject which get locked and then pushed into the long grass.

Sure, I could botch a solution by installing an add-on to convert them, or I could use something like XnView (which I do, periodically, and in bulk) after the save event has happened, or I can edit about:info to tell Firefox not to accept webp - but this breaks functionality for some sites (like eBay), but I have found that in the end I have had to start switching to Microsoft Edge to do my browsing for a number of sites because Mozilla Firefox are ignoring repeated user requests to provide a simple option to STOP doing this.

I don't want to save any files as webp - save them as PNG if you like, or jpg, but I use an ancient copy (v3.24) of ACDsee (from the days of Windows 98) for my image browsing, sorting, viewing etc because it is perfect, blisteringly quick, has no extra editing or other functionality which I don't need or want, and it doesn't bloat up anywhere with thumbnail files... but sadly webp didn't exist back then so it doesn't support it. I have used a number of much more up to date browser-viewers, but there is nothing can touch this OLD version of ACDsee for basically brilliant design.

I'm not changing my image viewer. It's non-negotiable.

I WILL however change my web browser if I have to, if the developers of the browser continually kick into the long grass to lock, hide away and pretend there's isn't an issue which has been repeatedly flagged as an annoyance for so many users.

I have been using one form or other of 'Mozilla' family of browsers since the days of Quarterdeck Mosaic. I don't particularly want to switch my loyalty, especially to Microsoft, but if they are listening to what customers want and providing it, and Mozilla are not, what else is there to do ?

I am a retired systems developer. I cannot envisage this being SUCH a big ask.

Modern software treats its users like idiots and takes away control, doing everything it's assumes on their behalf that they will want.

It is not difficult to provide an option within settings for when saving webp files to save as webp, png or jpg with conversion if necessary. All you need to do is hear the screams and respond. :)

Hi,

I'm new to firefox, I'm trying on this new linux based config to change from chrome to firefox, and I've got an error on most of the different website I'm trying to join : "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site." For short it's the server not found error, but I can access thoses websites from an other browser.

I'd like to solve this problem, I already tried ipv6 disabling, and dns prefetching enabling from this help page : https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/server-not-found-connection-problem and it still not resolve my problem.

It often resolve alone half an hour after I started firefox, but it is way too long...

Thanks a lot for helping me !

PS : domains I can't access : github, my school website, youtube sometimes...

I would like to be able to choose where Sync stores my information. Because it might contain sensitive personal information, people should want to have control over where exactly the data is stored. Right now it seems to be stored in some magical cloud service somewhere in the universe.

So for example, I might want to store it as a file on my GDrive, or as a digest in my Github account, or upload a file to my own server somehow.

For personal information storage, it is absolutely vital that it doesn't go to place where I don't want it to be, and a place that I have a reasonable level of control over.

So, million dollar question: how can I set this up?

Widevine will revoke Widevine Content Decryption Module which is earlier than ver 4.10.2209.0. https://www.widevine.com/news

Google has already released new version of CDM. However, the version on Firefox 88.0b7 is still 4.10.1582.2. You can check on the following menu: [Add-ons and Themes]>[Plugin]>[Widevine Content Decryption Module]

My questions are: 1. When is new Widevine CDM coming to Firefox? 1. Can Add-on Manger provide this update to older Firefox?

Firefox 87 x86 "broke" yesterday visually. A lot of areas of pages and top area (Firefox menu area) turned black. Safe mode fixed the problem. I did not or could not see how to disable ext one at a time. I went with a "Refresh" when I was to uninstall and install. Now, FF 87 does not remember the magnification setting. I set pages to 80%, close, launch, home page (previously set to 80%) is at 100%. Pages that are bookmarked (just set to 80% prior new launch) launch at 100%. There a multiple times during the run time of Firefox that I had gone into config and made adjustments. I do not recall having to do so for magnification not being saved. I do notice that one config change made prior does not exist now, set resolution 1440x900. I think there was a true/false for page memory in config that I had switched from default before the refresh, but seeing how the screen resolution isn't 1440x900..I assume "Refresh" reset config to default.

Sum: Now, Firefox does not save page magnification. What do I need to do, other than 'bump' the size every time? This was not the case prior the "Refresh".

I tried this for 2h now and there is no explanation how that icon disappeared in the first place. Perhaps there is a way o moving icons around?

Bring it back for fuck's sake, sometimes I need to open the image in the same tab.

Seriously, fuck you. You already ruined Firefox with version 57, might as well rename the browser to Google Firefox.

Until I updated to 88.0 64 bit, when I right clicked on a page there was a link to View Page Info right next to the View Page Source link. Now it is gone. I can get the info page back by right clicking the padlock icon, clicking the arrow, then clicking more info but that is a real PITA. How do I get the link back on page right click. I am 100% sure that this was not done intentionally. That would be very silly and absurd to do.
