WDO10 update crashed Firefox & I lost 5 months work. I.m thinking of paying the $$$ penalty & moving to Apple or Linux. I'm 74 & sorry miss Netscape Navigator where I could turn off bloated picture loading & javascript! Why do I download 1 meg of data & use 100 meg of memory? Is this fabulous Micrit*rd programming?

I accidentally deleted a single bookmark in a folder in my Toolbar.

So I created a restore point just in case, and then used the restore feature.

So when I restored my bookmarks, it froze firefox.

So I restarted and it restore everything except the toolbar.

The Bookmarks Toolbar is there, it's just empty, and all my extremely important bookmarks in the toolbar just don't exist. I even confirmed that they're gone by adding new things to the Bookmarks Toolbar, every bookmark in it is gone, with all the folders.

I am a designer and these were super important to me, please help, all my internet searches are extremely unhelpful, since they just say to restore, or check if the toolbar is being displayed(it is), the specific bookmarks in the toolbar are gone...

When we spell a word incorrectly it gets underlined in red, when I right click on it I get the suggested list of word but when I click on the correct on it's not replacing it, so no change in Microsoft dynamics CRM. We are using Mozilla Firefox 61. We are also facing slowness issue in CRM also.

I cleared out my History, Form, cookies, and cache a week ago and ever since I have one webpage, and ONLY one, that simply keeps giving me this error:

The connection has timed out

The server at www.consumercellular.com is taking too long to respond.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Now, the site simply can't be temporarily unavailable for over a week, especially since I have no trouble opening and logging into it using the Chrome browser on my tablet. However, even IE on my desktop gets this same message. As mentioned earlier in this message this is the only webpage that does this. All of my other ones work just fine and dandy. And I know it's not my firewall, since even with it turned off I get the same thing. Now, I really need to be able to access that website so if anyone can help me get this cleared up I would appreciate it. Just know that I'm not the most computer literate person around so any explanations need to be easy to follow!

Installing firefox version 68 with msi package doesn't ask me for install folder and insist on installing into C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox I removed permission to that folder and installer silently closed without installing anything except littering my taskbar with a useless icon "which I always removed it immediately"

How to tell Firefox that I want to install in a different folder?

This morning a significant number of my installed addons failed their signature test. Among these addons were uBlock Origin, Honey, Tampermonkey and Reddit Enhancement Suite. All of these addons are well known, so why have their signature tests failed? Furthermore, I seem completely unable to reinstall these extensions, despite them being available on the addon store.

The real problem is this: Why was this failure instant? This is unacceptable behaviour, a cooldown period needs to be available to allow someone to prepare a solution. I.E - a warning that "x addon does not meet standards and will be disabled in x days". Simply halting those addons and telling the end user after the fact is poor, poor behaviour - and was why I moved from Chrome to Firefox in the first place.

Furthermore, why is no workaround available on the stable channel? I'm astounded that a UX design this poor is a product of Mozilla.

I do not add Bookmarks in the Order that I wish to use them. Once I have bookmarked a page, I would like to be able to rearrange them. I do not understand why it is so hard to rearrange bookmarks in Firefox Android. I want to rearrange them myself, but the hoops I have to go thru are ridiculous. I have Dolphin and Chrome for android and all I have to do is pick Manage Bookmarks, press on the BookMark I want to move, and whalaaaa! I can move it. Firefox is my browser of choice, but this is driving me to Dolphin. If someone has a solution to this, I would appreciate knowing about it. I do not want to sync from my desktop, because I do not want all of the bookmarks that are on the desktop on my Android. Thanks!

Why native API? Because when there's a new web push notification and user misses it, there's no way to find out what it was. Using OS's native API will allow the notification to be kept in Notification Panel unit users sees it and dismiss it.

I believe Linux too have some sort of native notification APIs too.

It'd be really awesome to have native notifications support on operating systems which now have pretty good notifications APIs.

The title is pretty descriptive of the issue.

I have been trying to migrate older computer users over to Linux and have found a number of unusual problems.

One of them is that Firefox for Linux seems to lack a feature that exists on Windows: when you open the file upload window, there is no ability to search for the file you want. Instead you have to already know where/what it is, something that can be problematic at times.

Is this a known issue?

I can't speak for all distros, but at least on Kubuntu it is an issue.

I open the browser (homepage is google search - so a pretty empty space - but it makes no diff which homepage i use). And it takes a verrryyyyyyyy long time to load.

I have emptied cache etc etc etc, No viruses etc etc, Not caused by an add on....

And no, I dont want to do the 'reset' thing. (Why should I have to spend time every few weeks resetting all my Firefox preferences? This is a long standing BUG with firefox. Other browsers dont do this!)

How fix it? It seems to me that someone at Mozilla needs to address this bug. It's been around for a few years now.

Firefox doesn't sync automatically. This is on a Windows 10 computer; it doesn't happen on two other Windows 10 computers nor on my Android phone. Under Tools, instead of "Sync Now" it says "Sign In To Sync." After I hit the sign in button, it does so automatically, and syncing begins again. But after I shut down the browser, the next time I start it it goes back to not being signed in.
