I am done with Google and their shenanigans so i decided to move back to firefox. When i imported my list of bookmarks; the bookmarks have a globe beside the label in the toolbar under address bar.

I miss Firefox's ability to save a bookmark to a previously used folder. I realize that this was never supported by the base version of Firefox, however, it was possible to accomplish through add-ons. For example, if I save a bookmark to the folder "Music", then the next time I bookmark a page it should choose "Music" as the default choice; both when using the Star icon to bookmark a page, or when using the Crtl+D shortcut.

Roughly 2-3 years ago this was able to be done using add-ons. However, since those add-ons have become legacy extensions no developer has come forward with an add-on that accomplishes this feature.

If this was enabled it would save both myself and others a lot of time. At the moment, if I wanted to bookmark a bunch of tabs that are all related while doing research, I would need to click the star icon, move my mouse down and then select the recently used folder. That is a lot more steps then simply clicking the star icon and being done.

Bookmarking a page with this method takes about 3 seconds for each tab if I am bookmarking a bunch of tabs in a row. On the other hand, if the browser remembered my previously bookmarked folder then it would only take about 1 second per tab (This was tested using Chrome as the test browser since it has this feature enabled by default).

By allowing the browser to remember what folder I bookmarked to last, it would save me a good amount of time since I could move my mouse less per tab while bookmarking pages.

Being able to accomplish the same task in roughly a third of the time is pretty important and is substantial enough of a difference that I would consider using a different browser in order to increase my productivity.

I'm not sure if this is my Firefox acting up, or just the aftermath of Utorrent installing Web Companion, restoring sessions in Firefox hasn't been possible. Firefox does remember my history, but it shows no options for restoring session or restoring tabs. I've already done a refresh, I've deleted web companion and run CCleaner and Malwarebytes Adwcleaner and they show my system is clean, but I still can't get restore sessions to work.

What's going on, and how can I fix this?

Hi All,

I've been using FF sync between four devices for a long time now. The devices are a Windows laptop, a Mac laptop, an iPhone and an IPad. A couple of weeks ago, the Mac stopped syncing. I've tried disconnecting from FF sync and reconnecting, but that has no effect.

I can log into the FF sync website itself with the same credentials. There, I also tried disconnecting the Mac client, but that also did not help.

In the last error log file, I see the following, which I guess is the cause of the problem. Any ideas on how I can fix this?

1531472554256 Sync.Service DEBUG Exception calling WrappedLock: LockException: Could not acquire lock. Label: "service.js: login".

For the first time, I've encountered a webpage that doesn't display correctly using Firefox. It displays OK with Microsoft Edge and is partly displayed with Internet Explorer 11. https://www.theage.com.au/sport/soccer/fifa-world-cup-2018/live-scores-schedule-results

The page starts loading (it says: transferring data, waiting etc at the bottom left of screen). It appears to finish loading after 8 seconds but continually displays blue rotating dots and goes no further. See attached screenshot. The tab also indicates loading has completed. No error messages are displayed. I've tried Safe Mode, clearing cache, history and cookies associated with the site. Also tried with hardware acceleration turned off.

I'm using Firefox Quantum 60.0.2 (64-bit) on a Windows 7 PC. My laptop with Windows 10 also fails to display this page. The next-level-up webpage is OK, https://www.theage.com.au/sport/soccer/fifa-world-cup-2018

Any ideas? Regards.

Before FF Quantum, TabMix Plus had settings that could let you click links in Outlook, which would cause FF to open the links in new tabs, but Windows would not *switch* to Firefox.

So if you had a newsletter with a lot of links, you could click all of them and FF would load them in the background. When you were ready you'd switch to FF yourself.

I'm running Quantum at work also, but clicking links does not immediately switch to FF. Where or what is that setting so I can change that behavior on my system at home?

I've attached a screenshot of my add-ons, but this behavior began well after all of these were installed. And no, at this point I don't recall exactly when this began and what change might have precipitated it.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

I liked the downloads and everything Firefox WAS. NOW it is a carbon copy of GOOGLE. Any of you remeber carbon paper? you could not hack it fraud it or delete it. Now all we have is some idiot sitting at adesk making us do what THEY WNAT

it is no different than Communist China wearing all the same clothes under mao tze tung

So if firefox is now going to be a carbon copy of google i guess we all should CUT OFF firefox and use google and let firefox DIE.

Or can you make it a bit more individual??? your settings are absolutely poor too for people who design you need to go back to school

When I type 't' on the address bar, 'ranslate.google.com/' is automatically showed next to 't'. So I can go to 'translate.google.com/' with just enter key. But, I don't like it. I usually go to 'translate.google.com/#auto/en/' not 'translate.google.com/'. Therefore, I need to type down key and then enter key to go to 'translate.google.com/#auto/en/'. I just want to change the automatically completed url to most visited url not main url. Is there any way to do this?

There are too many language packs (maybe all) installed on one of my profiles. Why or how that happened? How can I remove all of them except the one I use without having to click like 100 time on the Remove button? Also on another profile there are only two language packs, but they could not be verified for use in Firefox, and I don't see an option to remove or to update them, only the option of disabling them. What's going on here?

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/remove-websites-awesome-bar-suggestions#w_clearing-a-single-item-from-the-address-bar-history

But this straight up does not work.

I can highlight and delete and as soon as i start typing again, it refills the search history results i just deleted.

I've cleared all search history everywhere I can find and still the address bar is offering search results from past searches

How can I get rid of them?! Thank you.
