The latest updated to Firefox for Mac (125.0.2) has completely scrambled accessing my bookmarks. Before the update I could type T in the search bar and up popped the URL for The Globe and Mail; or N and the URL for the New York Times popped up. (This works because no other bookmark begins with these letters.) Both are in my Toolbar (no bookmarks have actually changed or disappeared with the update). Now when I type T, a completely different URL turns up, plus a drop-down menu of other URLs randomly selected from any of my bookmark lists IN WHICH A T APPEARS ANYWHERE in it; and when I type N, a website I've NEVER EVEN SEEN BEFORE (name.com) shows up, plus a drop-down menu with URLs from my bookmarks that contain an N anywhere in the URL. Why is this happening, and how to fix it? Please don't tell me I have to switch back to Safari.

Is it possible to import bookmarks for a different Mozilla account. Apparently I have 2 different Mozilla accounts. I had been using (I'll call it account #1) for quite a while, and recently subscribed to Mozilla VPN service. When I subscribed i gave it login info for "Account #2". How can I keep the logon info for the VPN, and get my bookmarks imported from the old (routinely used account #1) ? Or, can I change the VPN service to the old account (account #1)? I know how to add another device to the VPN account, but the "accounts" are on the same "device".

Thanks...

Hello there!

I recently had to reinstall Firefox as my original drive died. I had used about:config to disable the bookmark bar favicons as I have a visual aesthetic I enjoy on my computer.

Now in 2024, it seems that all of the settings I previously used are no longer functioning when toggling them to false within about:config. They were browser.chrome.favicon, and, browser.chrome.site_icons .

Doing searches, all I can find are tips and tricks from many versions ago, some dating all the way back to 2007.

Does anyone know how, in the current version of Fires, which at the time of this writing is 125.0.3 to remove the favicons? I have attached a pic of the look I am going for, which is the default globe icon, instead of the annoying favicon. I tried the userChrome.css trick, but it completely removed the globe icon as well.

I know there has to be a new setting in about:config that will work, I just can't seem to find it.

Any help would be most welcome! And thank you!

Why are my bookmarks all of a sudden not working anymore.

Selecting the saved bookmark from DudkDuckGo or Firefox does not load the page.

Did i change a setting accidentally/

Did Mozilla change the functionality?

What's going on?

Thanks for your help.

Note: I can access the page by going directly to its URL ... but what's the point of bookmarks if that is necessary?

Thx. again.

Firefox is my preferred browser, and I have a very comprehensive list of bookmarks with folders and subfolders. Recently, whenever I add a bookmark through 'Manage Bookmarks' to access this list more easily than 'bookmark this page' > 'edit bookmark' & > 'Choose', it works the first time only; after that if I add another the second will not appear. If I close the 'manage bookmarks' window & reopen it & scroll to where I was before (a time consuming exercise), I can see that it did add the bookmark— for some reason it does not show when I do. This happens if the window is idle more than a few moments. Ideas how to fix?

I am using the latest version of firefox nightly. I notice this on another PC that shares the same profile. However one of my PCs doesn't take this long and it uses the same profile as well. It also seems that the pinned tabs are not loading correctly because I get errors with those pages too.

My browser was just updated today and now my Toolbar Bookmarks are missing from the toolbar. "Most Visited" with a gear is on the left and Other Bookmarks with hardly anything in it is on the far right. I have to go to Bookmarks at the top to access my Toolbar Bookmarks.

I recently migrated from Chrome to Firefox on my Mac and successfully imported all data, bookmarks etc. However I cannot figure out how to ADD a new bookmark to an existing folder. Every page I read about bookmarking fails to show how this is done. In Chrome its simple since the drop down menu allows the user to view every folder, but in Firefox I don't see how to do this. Furthermore, when I go to Bookmarks>Manage bookmarks I don't see any of my folders..PLEASE show me an EASY way to do this. Thank you

Subsequent name changes for home screen shortcuts on Android

While adding a website shortcut to my home screen on Android, I changed the name (to be shown on the home screen). I later decided to use a slightly different name, so I removed the shortcut and added it again, entering the new name. Nevertheless, the shortcut is now always added with the original custom name. This is also the case when I leave the name unchanged in a later attempt. I get the same results with multiple sites. I get the same results after closing Firefox, restarting my phone and emptying the Firefox cache. Even thought the shortcut on the home screen is probably not actually a bookmark, I tried bookmarking the site, and changing the name of the existing bookmark - with the same results. Is there a way I can choose a different name for the home screen shortcut, or this a bug? Background: I am now manually adding shortcuts to my home screen after getting a new phone (Pixel 7a). I had have mostly the same shortcuts on my previous phone (Pixel 3a XL). The shortcuts were kind-of(!) transferred to my new phone: they appear in the same home screen folders as on my old phone, but gray. When I try to open them, I get the message: "Couldn't restore shortcut because app doesn't backup and restore". Is there a way to transfer (all) home screen shortcuts? If not, please consider adding support for backup or automatic migration.

Good Afternoon, I was looking at some images on Wednesday 28th Feb on Pinterest which I booked marked but when I tried to find them the following day they weren't there. I checked history and Library and restore. And the 27th and 28th Feb are missing. So I am thinking do I have two Firefox accounts and that's the reason the dates are missing ?. Is their anyway to find the two days I was browsing ?.

Using Firefox on desktop, Windows 11. I am a long term Firefox fan/user.

My problem is I cannot find anywhere an easy method to add a shortcut on my Home Screen (which has now been a FF feature for some considerable time).

I am sure there was something available to do this in a prior version some time back. If I search the internet, I only come across articles describing how to do it on Firefox Android.

I know I can manually edit a box on the Home Screen to create what I need.

Sometimes new web sites that I visit appear in the boxes and I can then pin them in place - but the behavior around this is very erratic and unreliable - seems like random chance for an icon to appear on the home screen for a newly visited site. If this was more consistent, I could work with that.

BUT - where is the **intuitive** option??!!

I should be able to right-click on a tab and select "Add to Home Screen".

As simple as that.

Or drag and drop a link, or tab to the home screen - but this just opens the link. I have tried everything obvious that I can think of.

Anyone?

Many thanks :)
