I'm having a really hard time trying to put proper terms into my request. Please bear with me.

I believe it's a version or two ago that Firefox started imposing an arbitrary limit on how long I could explore in a pulldown bookmarks menu before it disappeared. I believe that earlier this wasn't the case: that once I was searching around among bookmarks they would be available to me to mouse around in for as long as I needed. Now they self-retract after a few seconds.

Is there a hidden pref to remove or greatly increase the time before the automatic withdrawal of bookmark menus while in use occurs?

I hope I'm being clear about this. I'm sure my terminology is less than accurate.

Thanks

So while using FF, I think it was a combination of too many programs opened and too many tabs (and an old potato PC laptop) suddenly the whole display turned black probably because of all those reasons, i waited a min but nothing, so i shut it down manually in order to restart it.

As i re opened firefox i finished the search that caused the "crash" i guess and only later i realized that all my history (an awful lot) is gone. Tried using an old Windows restore point of december but nothing... Pleaseeee help me retrive my history. Thanks a lot.

I'm using FF (96) on Android 10. When browsing Ebay I will be prompted for password on almost every page change (maybe some are cached). Fully reproducible if paging through my watch list.

I have already cleared all data, reinstalled, switched off tracking, granted exceptions to ebay. Nothing helped. Works perfectly on Chrome.

Finally I noticed, that the problem disappeared, when requesting desktop site. Of course, desktop site apears too small, so I'm using Chrome for the moment.

I know and admit I stuffed up.

One day a long time ago I was prompted for my master password.

When I clicked in that area/field a requester popped up asking me to pick a colour. Confused I picked one - and a bad one I now see.

So now when certain parts of a web page are opened the background colour is this horrible colour and I can't really read what is there.

I don't understand what I did or HOW I did it.

This is a cropped example of the bad contrast I am seeing.

As I said, I admit I stuffed up. But this seems to all have happened since that one time with the main password requester.

Greetings,

I am running 91.5.0 (64-bit). And for the last year or so, I was accessing all my various TB profiles by going to HELP -> MORE TROUBLESHOOTING INFORMATION -> ABOUT PROFILES and then I would get the option to launch any profile I wanted.

The problem is that now when I launch any other profile then it comes up totally blank. It is just a shell. All the info is missing.

Your guidance and help is kindly requested...thank you!!
