On Startup: - "Open previous windows and tabs." Yes, I have this checked, but it ain't actually doing it. What's the solution?

True or False? If this box is checked I can quit Firefox altogether which tabs still open, and those same tabs will automatically load again upon reopening Firefox.

(Upon writing back, please refrain from thanking me for anything.)

I have three Firefox profiles: A, B, and C. I tried to give them all different themes. A has a red theme and keeps it consistently. B, my default profile, should have a green theme, and C should have a black theme. However, when I change B's theme to green, the theme on C also changes to green, and when I change the theme on C to black, the theme for B also changes to black. I don't know what I did differently for A! How can I make my profile themes stick for B and C?

I am in the process of moving all of our passwords into 1Password. However, I discovered that my wife has her Firefox set to auto login, but can't remember her user name and password. So, although she can use it, she can't change update the password. The fact that on setup, auto login is the default makes this doubly frustrating. So, is there any way to get to the password?

Hi there,

I cleared my cache after it told me it had stored a gazillion GB in data - but the big number was still there after clearing the cache. Needless to say my harddrive isn't even as big as the GB number shown, so there must be a gremlin in there somewhere? Thought you'd want to know. I'm using the latest Firefox on Mac OS 10.15.7

BOOKMARKS: LOCATING SUB-FOLDER

QUESTION POSTED NOV 2020 by: BevHoward NEVER ANSWERED - PLEASE ADVISE - NEED ANSWER

"I have hundreds of FireFox bookmarks organized in bookmarks folders and subfolders which makes sense most of the time.

However, with seldom used bookmarks, often I cannot remember where the bookmark itself is located, and, I need like to find the bookmark and note the folder where it resides then perhaps move the bookmark to a folder that makes more sense the next time it's needed.

While I can "search" bookmarks and use the bookmark, there is no apparent way to determine where the bookmark itself is located, so, I am forced to use "search" every time I need to use it. "Abandoning" a lost bookmark location and creating a duplicate does not seem right.

There MUST be a way to find where a bookmark is located. What am I missing?"

In version 98, a change was made so that the download panel always opens every single time any file is downloaded. I have found that I never, under any circumstances, want or have ever wanted this behavior, nor do I ever ever serendipitously benefit from it. It is continuously annoying. How do I defeat it?

Starting up my Mac up on March 10, a notification from Firefox was on the screen thanking me for using the browser and notifying me my Firefox is up-date. From that point and continuing, none of my Gmail accounts are receiving emails. The last dated email all show on March 10th was receipt of a last email for several accounts. What gives and what do I need to do in order to correct my Gmail account email problem(s)? I'm a dedicated Firefox browser user and have been for many years without experiencing a single problem with it up until this. I love Firefox and very comfortable using it but I also need my emails and also questioning where the emails sent and not received went to and how to retrieve them, if at all? Any solutions to my situation?

Lately when I download an image, from Google expanded images on the right side for example, the download drops down a menu. If I have made multiple downloads the list gets longer and now blocks the area of the page I am working on. I don't need this downloads drop down menu and cannot find a way to stop it. I would prefer if it didn't display unless I clicked on it.

I have searched the net but can't find any answers. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, Tom.

I have a persistent cookies 'Invisiblehand.com' that I can not get rid of. I am using an Imac running Monterey 12.2.1 I am running Firefox 98.0

In Enhanced Tracking Protection I have 'Strict' in use. In Cookies and Site Data I have 'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed' There are no sites listed in 'Exceptions'. In 'History' I have 'Clear history when Firefox closes'

But the above site is always listed once I open up Firefox after closing it.

How do I get rid of this? This is a new problem.

Thank you for your time and effort.

I have two Macs with Firefox, A and B. I don't understand the sync. I have different bookmarks on firefox in computer A and computer B. I want to transfer the bookmarks from A to B, not vice versa. What is the process and sequence of signing in/syncing so that the bookmarks go from A to B and not from B to A? Thank you for your help.
