Is there an archive somewhere, which I'm not seeing?

  • You can click on "My Contributions" -- https://support.mozilla.com/questions?filter=my-contributions (at the top of a main forum page) -- and sort on "Most Recent" (recently updated appear first). You could create a bookmark for the page. (If you check your contributions here regularly, this is a good alternative to using "get email updates" (notifications) -- see upper right corner of a question.)

The information above is in my profile, which you can click on the left of the reply.

Thanks, dmcritchie, I found the former posts in general, but you saved me a lot of browse time!

So, instead of putting the elusive and misnamed "my Contributions" somewhere logical (and giving it a quirky money-charity connection instead of calling it "my posts") like under my name of profile, you make us do a major search! Why not simplify it so people don't feel confused. That would make it clear and simple.
