A few months ago Firefox decided to double space all the items in menus. Reading through the forums many people didn't like this because of the amount of space that the menus now take up. Fortunately there was a work around, by setting 'browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled to false they returned to normal

This morning Firefox my got upgraded and the double spacing problem is back again. However there appears to be a bug with the setting and the menus won't return to normal. I'm now stuck with stupidly large menus that won't fit on the screen and lots of painful scrolling.

Does anybody have an alternative workaround until this is fixed?

In the last few weeks I have not been able to reset MY location for the weather. I am in Red Deer and the location is locked at Fort Saskatchewan, where I have never been! I know it should be a simple fix but even Geek Squad was not able to change this and they even uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. I took my computers to Best Buy to give them the run down and as soon as they opened up the default location said Red Deer! They are only a few blocks away and I was relieve that it worked. At home it immediately came up as Fort Sask again. This is just an annoyance but I like to use Firefox as my browser. Any suggestions?

Since upgrading to TB 91 (currently 91.2.0), it consistently takes 5+ minutes to start [Windows 10 Pro x64 v. 21H1], even in Safe Mode (all extensions disabled). I can see the Disk Active time pegged at 100% in the Task Manager during this time, but little to no CPU usage. I am using F-Secure Security Suite for AV (rebranded for Spectrum). Suggestions as to how to fix this?

I have problems in some favicon of bookmarks. (Wrong favicon) How can i reload favicon of a specific bookmark? There is an extension for this job : [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fire.../|CheckMarks] But this extension has no option to reload favicon of bookmarks individually for force firefox to reload favicon of a specific bookmark! Please give me a solution on this. In some years ago there was an extension with name favicon reloader. It was ok. But does not exist anymore.

After reinstalling Firefox (to new 64-bit version), I've lost all of my favicons. I'm seeing that only way to get them back is to individually select each bookmark. Is there a way to get the bookmarks to go and automatically download their favicons so my bookmarks will be repopulated again?

After updating to 89.0 the appearance of FF is horrendous. that light coloring, change of tabs, and etc. I want to revert to the color schemes I have before. How do I do that? It is so ugly, I will seriously go back to Google Chrome if I cannot; and that is a huge statement coming from me.

Tried to reply to your email. It has not return. Here is a copy of report you requested. It is different from what you sent me.

> Task: invalidateCaches - Unable to invalidate caches > Task: checkCoherence - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: expire - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: originFrecencyStats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: vacuum - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: stats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: _refreshUI - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task.

I still have no bookmarks. I have restarted the computer a number of times. I also renamed the places.sqlite adding a 1 after places as it said in other directions. I have also refreshed.

Yesterday, I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled after receipt of your response. It said all cookies, history, bookmarks etc transferred successfully. However, I keep getting the message “ and Bookmarks and history systems will not be functional because one of Firefox’s file is in use by another application. Some security software can cause the problem. I use McAfee, I’ve always used it. I have not changed it.

I did not do anything with favicon file as I don’t know what to do, I understand you can delete that. If there is a list of more than one, then what do I do.

As I indicated, I an NOT a technical person.

Please advise.

Thanks.

Thanks Cor-el for replying with advice on how to use about:config to ensure the screencapture was toggled correctly. It wasn't and I corrected that. Now I have the icon in the toolbar and on the right click menu but when I attempt to use them all I get is a popup menu with a large black X in it and nothing can be done with it. Also, on the toolbar items that are added to it all appear in the overflow and there is no way of getting them to appear on the screen by reducing the size of the search bar. I've been using firefox ever since it first appeared and I've never had problems like this before.

Dear Cor-el,

Thank you for responding and answering my question. You have helped me out gratefully! Your answer is right, easy to understand and to fulfill. I can move those icons from now on. Hereby I have an other question. I have more extensions added, but not all of those icons are shown in the toolbar. How do I realize that?

Real example I have in the toolbar 4 extension icons but I have 7 extension enabled. Where have been those other 3 icons?

Regards,

Van Lieren

I was forced to uninstall and reinstall Firefox because I got this System Error:

"The code execution cannot proceed because of VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fi this problem."

I did this and now when I open firefox and click on a bookmark nothing loads. It seems like somehow it cannot communicate. Do you have any ideas how to fix this?

Hi, the backup files listed on the Restore menu are complete snapshots of your bookmarks for that date, and not limited to the new ones added on those dates. Do you want to physically delete the full backups from disk?

If you want to view/delete your current bookmarks added during a certain period, here are the steps for that:

Sorting Bookmarks by Date Added

First, make sure you have the Added column in your Library window (called up by Manage Bookmarks). To add a new column to the display, right-click any existing column heading and check the column on the little drop-down list.

Next, if you aren't sure which folder the bookmarks are in you can do a general search in the upper right corner (entering http will match most bookmark URLs).

Then click the Added column heading to sort by that column. This should group together the bookmarks added on a particular date so you can review and delete the ones you don't want.

Does that work on your Firefox?

No because I do not have an "Added" column on the Library window called up by "Manage Bookmarks." YES I would like to "Physically delete (permanently get rid of) "the full backups from the disc." I have yet to see a "delete" tab anywhere in this version of Firefox (92.0). I would gladly revert to an earlier version if it eliminated the current "restore bookmarks" list. How do I do it?
