I have successfully synced FF on my laptop with FF on my Galaxy 9+ Android phone, but when I want to access a desktop bookmark on my phone, it takes 4 steps - 1. Click on the 3 dots at the bottom - 2. Click on the Bookmarks star icon- 3. click on Desktop bookmarks. - 4. click on the bookmarks toolbar icon. Is there a way to just click on the 3 dots and make it go straight to step 4, by-passing steps 2 and/ or 3? A true sync should add all the bookmarks in the bookmarks bar on the laptop more directly to the main page or at least the bookmarks icon shouldn't it?, and this seems clunky.

Thanks, Richard

Anyone know the best search tricks for videos or photos from any source by using identifiers to narrow down the best results? I have a little knowledge using (*) or (" ") and (+).... Any suggestions or any particular search engines. I'm trying to hunt down a video that I would love to have from an altercation I had in the past that might have been uploaded somewhere but cannot find it on YouTube or anywhere else so far. Thanks for your help everyone.

Under about:preferences#privacy there is a section 'Cookies and Site Data'. I have my settings set to CUSTOM and block all cookies. I then have managed my exceptions. I did a refresh resently, all that was lost. The best I can do currently is to have wordpad open and manually type each line out in my exceptions and then if needed in the future, I could copy and paste. There might be a better way that I do not know. I do know by default, the 'Managed Exceptions' under 'Cookies and Site Data' does not save if 'Refreshed'. Please address a better process and not my choice on blocking all cookies, thank you.

I would suggest adapting the Firefox icon to the new Big Sur design. Unfortunately, among the most common applications, Firefox is the only one that has still kept the old design (which makes Firefox seem like something out of date and not very obsolete in appearance, while in reality it is a concentrate of care and progress).

The user observes the evolution of an app from the thick icon design, so I can't explain how Firefox can still own its design (which unfortunately doesn't align with the dock). On iOS / iPadOS you have the appropriate icon, why not transfer it directly to macOS Big Sur at this point (thus unifying the interface itself)?

Nothing to say about the rest, you are fabulous and the best (I just suggest a hint of transparency in the panel bar).

With regard

Because of the location where I live, most of google services are blocked on the internet. Yesterday I wanted to download a device driver from www.m-audio.com but the driver's page stopped loading. I noticed a message at the bottom left of the Firefox window saying "waiting for www.google.com" or something similar. Because of that wait, I could open the page only after 4 tries and waiting way too much time. Can I filter page contents from google so Firefox skips them?

I run Firefox with multiple profiles, as there are several people that use this computer. I start firefox with -p <profilename> -no-remote.

This all works fine except if I'm in try to open a link from for instance in an email, I click on the link and it opens the profile manager. If I select a profile that already has an open window I get an error message stating

"Firefox cannot use the profile "Rick" because it is in use. To continue, close the running instance of Firefox or choose a different profile."

Is there anyway to have it open the link in a new tab of an already running profile, rather then having to close the profile and then click the link.

HDD was failing in my other computer. Put in a new HDD and transferred bookmarks (FFox. 16.++ on both) but don't remember how to transfer my saved passwords. Some folks helped me with this when I rebuilt this PC (the one I am using to send this info), and I remember most of the path and method but not well enough to attempt it without some guidance. The other PC is an ASUS G50VT-X5 laptop.
