Hi! I have been a Firefox user on PC/Windows for a long time, years, and had quite a lot of bookmarks. One day, while various FireFox updates were happening, I noticed something, I think it was a popup, saying something to the effect that all your bookmarks will be deleted. Huh!? Couldn't click on anything to stop the install. And after computer restarted, all the bookmarks were gone from FireFox, meaning when I go to the bookmarks button, nothing shows anymore. What happened? They are really gone or where to find a backup to get them back again? I don't recall ever backing them up on purpose, so if there was a backup, it would have been an automatic thing. Please give input. Thank you!

Full URL of old Google searches appearing as a suggestion in the address bar. How to hide or disable it?

Hi everyone.

There's a behavior with the "search suggestions" feature in the address bar that works differently than I'd expect. I show a real example below:

1 - I did a search with the phrase "mercado livre" using the address bar suggestions 2 - I visited the website www.mercadolivre.com.br 3 - I close the window and open I new one 3 - When I start typing the word "mer" with the intention of opening the site again, the address bar suggests as the first option the URL "https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-d&q=market +free". This is the URL of the search done in step 1. You can see thin in the image attached.

What I really hope is that in step 3, it lists the URL "www.mercadolivre.com.br" (my history), and below that, the other search suggestions. It doesn't make sense to me to list the full Google search url as a suggestion, as in step 3.

Is there any way to hide or disable this kind of suggestion? Note that I don't want to disable all suggestions from previously visited sites, just the old searches´ full URL types from step 3.

Thanks.

Ever since yesterday when I accidentally turned on caret browsing I've been trying to turn it back off. I've been pressing F7 in an attempt to bring up the pop-up, but to no avail. I've been searching all over the internet for solutions, but nothing has helped yet. I'm only able to find articles on disabling caret browsing in Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome. Obviously, that doesn't help me with Firefox.

Since yesterday's update on my Windows 7, today I first got error messages on pages I usually visit, my home page and the Google signin page among my Favorites. The browser crashed when I tried to bring up Settings. Subsequently I could not open it again. I just shut down that computer in case repowering it solves the problem later. This is Mac Catalina. Firefox just updated here. I hope on this computer the problem does not surface.

I have an old PC desktop which I would like to replace with a newer model. I want to get a used one with Windows 7 on it. I know Windows 7 is no longer supported but I have a lot of old software that I use, some not often, and have no desire to purchase new software. I was told that I could not download Firefox onto a newer PC with Windows 7. Is this true? I do have a laptop with Windows 10 that I use for on line ordering, etc. I like the desktop as it has a decent keyboard and mouse.

I started Firefox yesterday and saw a message about not having been on for some time - which rang alarm bells for a daily user! Having time today to investigate, it seems that it's lost 6 months of history and bookmark changes (I'm only offered January or today!) Is there a way of recovering all that history (very helpful) and this Tuesday's bookmark set? Thanks Stephen

After the last update to version 90.0, I can't continue to use firefox browser. The problem is about opening google sites (youtube, gmail). Other websites seems to work normal, but I can't open youtube and gmail now (google.com itself works heavily). When I type url and click enter, it takes so much time to load, often not loading the site or partially load. Other browsers installed on the same system works normally with the "problematic" websites. I tried hard reload (ctrl+f5), cleaning all browser data, and uninstalling and reinstalling. None of the mentioned actions helped. Please help me to identify and solve the issue.

The print functionality has changed a lot in the latest versions of Firefox and is causing me problems so I wonder if there are settings or add-ons which I've missed which would help.

Specifically:

1) The preview is no longer full screen. This makes it difficult to adjust a view, of say a map, so that the area printed is precisely what is wanted. The full screen preview in older versions of Firefox made this very easy. Is there any way of getting a full screen print preview page?

2) Previously it was possible to set custom headers and footers on a printed page. This was ideal for labelling printouts is a descriptive way, so useful for future reference, and enabled the removal of unwanted information. In the present version of Firefox all I seem to be able to do is switch printing of default headers/footers on and off. Is there a way of customising headers and footers that I've missed?

Thanks
