Hello, my WIN 10 Drive got busted, meaning I can not boot with it anymore. However, with an other WIN10 drive I still can access the data. I need to save all the Firefox bookmarks before I will format the Drive and install a fresh WIN10. All the searches just tell how to backup when Firefox is open or Win is running: Press WIN Key... etc. None of them is applicable. I have I have bookmarks saved as bookmarks as well as I have a lot on the upper bar. I need them all.

Please teach me how I can back them up and restore on a fresh Firefox. In previous crashes I lost a lot of bookmarks already. ' Thank you.

How do I remove pocket from Firefox?

The published solution does not work. When I type "about:config" in the URL, then "pocket," and change the "extensions.pocket.enabled" to "false," the pocket page still shows up after I close a session or a screen asking me to sign in to pocket. I am always closing unnecessary pocket related tabs.

As I remember, one time it worked but only for two days and then the some form of the pocket page showed up again.

Restarting Firefox does not change anything. Please advise.

Firstly, I have a brain injury. I am easily overwhelmed by information and am slow to understand - especially anything to do with I.T.

Recently, I began successfully accessing the internet / Firefox via my Wifi Repeater. As of two or three days ago. I keep being asked to "log in to access the Internet", but even after I do it (successfully, as far as my repeater is concerned) I'm no further forward; I keep being asked to log in.

Thanks to my repeater I have a strong signal when in my garden office. But after a month, Firefox has suddenly stopped allowing me to use it. I am back at Square 1, before I purchased the thing.

I need need to work from my office. Please help resume my Repeater's access.

Kind regards,

Sean

Hi everyone, When i go to the website config.office.com in firefox there is just a white screen. Nothing more. Instantly white. I have checked if this is an issue at the side of Microsoft but it doesn't look like it is. The website does load correctly in Microsoft Edge.

I tried the following in Firefox: - Firefox is up to date (Version 115.0.2 64 Bits) , I have had this issue in other versions of Firefox too. It's not a new issue in this newest version. - Tried disabling all the security features in Firefox, disabling all add-ons, and disabling the extra security for cookies - Starting firefox in safe mode (Shift click on firefox, then open the website) - Checked the Network inspector. All packets have status 200 (See the first screenshot)

You can check the second screenshot for the white page.

Some help is appreciated :) Thanks!

I have tried syncing to the time server and manually updating the time with no success. It is only happening on this computer. My other laptop and my Android are fine, so it has something to do with something on this PC. I've tried to disable vpns but that hasn't helped. Any insight is greatly appreciated since the timestamp is crucial for much of what I do!

I like when I open a bookmark, that I am not forced to view it right away. This can be VERY annoying when opening multiple bookmarks but I want to stay on my current one without having to switch back to the one I was using. I would like an option added at least to have bookmarks in that automatically switch to when opening. Please.

When I pressed the "+" symbol at the right side of my tabs with the left mouse button, a new tab opens at the most right place. So far, so easy.

When I pressed the same "+" symbol using the middle mouse button, the new tab opened right beside the active tab. Now, middle mouse button and left mouse button do the same thing.

Work around could be to open the context menu (right mouse button) of a tab, choose "new tab" an get a new tab right beside the tab chosen with the mouse pointer while pressing the right mouse button.

Did something recently change?

I subscribe to The Times (UK) and use many of their different portals. I am, however, experiencing a really odd problem. For the last three Mondays in a row when I hover over a link it shows one destination which is now three weeks out of date and downloads same when clicked. When I Inspect(Q) the relevant bit of script it shows the correct page for the current week. All other links from the current edition work as expected. The link works correctly on other days of the week. The IT support at The Times have no idea why this is happening and have simply asked me to do stupid things like clearing all cache and cookies relevant to their site. this has no effect whatsoever!

How can this happen and have you any help on the subject?

Hello, I recently installed a fresh FF 115.0.2 (after years of importing my old profile). I noticed a really nice feature, when double clicking a word, a search bubble would open with 4 icons (google, google maps, wikipedia and something else) and you could click one of them and it would open a new tab and search for the selected text.

Today I noticed it is missed. I didn't upgrade FF, I didn't install any new add-on and I didn't even close FF since the last time it worked.

Any ideas how to get it back? And how to add other providers to this very nice feature?

Thanks

How can I get rid of it? I don't want it.

Well done Firefox team.

I got a notification this morning telling me I could update Firefox to the latest version and I had nothing urgent so I did.

Imagine my suprise when all my bookmarks, my passwords and logins appeared to have disappeared. Well, not just "appeared", since I can't find them anywhere on my machine right now.

I've been using Sync for years and when I finally managed to connect (because apparently the password I had been using was wrong ? But did FF tell me ? No ...), I discovered nothing had been saved. Ever.

A really nice morning.

I am very happy with the upgraded Firefox library. It works great except for one feature. Maybe there is a setting for it that I have missed.

When I click on an item in my library to open it, it opens it over top of the right-most tab that I have open. That means I always have to be careful to have a blank tab open, otherwise I lose the last item I was viewing. Is there a setting, or can you add a setting, to have the library open links in a new tab, or if one prefers in the existing tab? I want to be able to open in new tabs.
