How do I disable "recent bookmarks" when I go to the bookmarks.

Also How do I get bookmarks to appear as they did prior to the update. It used to be 1 button on the right side of the address bar would open a menu that had all of my bookmarks and book folders. Now theres an option button, where when I select "bookmarks" and then "bookmark current tabs", "search bookmarks", and "hide bookmarks toolbar" as well the dreaded "recent bookmarks" that show a random selection of among all of my bookmarks from random folders.

If I want a remembrance of how my bookmarks used to be, I have to make sure the menu bar is visible and select bookmarks from there.

I get this error secure.ipower.com. PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR when I try to get in contact with www.ipower.com my Internet website service. Any ideas I have tried to access functions in Firefox & Google get the same message. Does anyone know if this company is down, out of business or ???

Is there any way of making sure it works consistently? I need to right click then click "Open Link in New Tab" to have it work reliably. Maybe something in about:config? Using latest Win7 64 bit Firefox. I've noticed this for probably 2 years now at least. Not sure if it ever worked 100%.

Why am I not able to answer the question "Nationality?" with the reply I believe to be closest to the truth? Saying I'm from the UK is like saying a Kenyan is African. While technically true, it lacks the accuracy most other countries are allowed to excercise. I'm not saying it would change the world, but it would be nice to have the option. thank you.

When I open Firefox, I'm getting ** 12 ** instances of Firefox opening up and spamming the hell out of my hard drive (even slowing down other processes), even without opening a page (I have mine set to not open any pages on loading Firefox). This is annoying and intolerable. I have looked around to find a workaround, but the only post was from last year, and gives instructions to turn off recommended settings, then says to set Firefox instances to 1, where there is no way to do that in that section on the version I'm running. So, how do I fix this? I want the hard drive spamming stopped.

I want to unclutter the screen. How can I remove these Social site buttons down the left side of the screen? There's also a large font number with the word shares underneath, what that means I've got no idea, I don't own any shares. Can that be got rid of too?

I'm using an online image processing service. OK until recently when the resulting jpeg file download is blocked by ff for "potential security risk". [Literally the DL report says blocked but my photo software shows a jpeg file created that cannot be read.] An ff clone browser gets the file OK. Also there is a manual over-ride in ff that works one file at a time. I don't see any way to automate for batch or site itself. Manual for each file is a nuisance. I really don't know what I'm dealing with here but I doubt there is a virus or security danger for my home (not networked) pc. Thanks for any assist.

PS: I see in download help here, the threat warning of PSR [potential security risk] is ambiguous. Compared to "may harm your computer", a higher level. PSR says "uses an insecure connection . . . may be corrupted or tampered with during the download process". I read this knowing that another browser, and the ff override, get the file no problem. Can a security threat be concealed in a jpeg file? FF is relying on google-based protection, I believe.

I've recently noticed that some icons on websites are showing up as "asian" characters. I haven't knowingly changed any settings, gone to any strange sites, nor added any extensions. I've tried clearing the cache and even removed and reinstalled firefox and the few extensions I use, which are the common ones like adaware,etc. Nothing has seemed to work. The icons range from ones that link to facebook, twitter, etc to the search icon. If I inspect the icon it says the font is "MingLiU_HKSCS" I've checked the setting and it says the font is times new roman and even unchecked the box that says "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" but neither seems to work. Thanks for your help

My primary machine has (FF 88.0.1 64-bit) has all the FF tweaks for privacy and annoyances I care to have. Last outstanding issue is floating videos -- but that's posted as another topic by me. Big questions:

1. Can I bring FF on the three other laptops and server to the same FF revision level at this machine and copy across all files that would capture settings this machine's settings/changes in Config and Policies ?

I currently make quick work of syncing UBlock and AdBlocker on all machines by simple export/imports of text files. Everything tweaked exactly the same on every machine with respect to FF is what I am after...

I accidentally clicked on the x in private mode. It didn't warn me before closing the many many open tabs in private mode!!!

What the heck?!

Firefox is updated to the latest version that was offered.

I'm using an ancient" machine but that shouldn't matter. If the box is checked to warn me first, then it always should, regardless what operating system or mode I'm in.

Very disappointed. Please fix or advise a solution I might try to prevent something similar in the future.

But I don't know what in the world I could have possibly done differently.

One checkbox being checked that claims to be to receive a warning before closing multiple tabs at once should be enough.

I have had a government website to log into for informatin from them. It was always auto-filled. I have asked for support from them and they gave me another number to call and I did everything they asked, but then I got a little note saying that that site is not longer available and that it was cleared when I cleared the cache. I have tried creating a new account and even that doesn't work. Is there any way to get that website back?
