Is there a way to sort YouTube playlists alphabetically in the Firefox browser on Mac OS? I can do it on my iPhone X using the YouTube app; but I normally use YouTube using the Firefox browser on my MacBook Pro.

I'm using Firefox 86.0 on a MacBook Pro 13" early 2015 running Mac OS 10.14.6.

But there is also a login for same Username X on a sub/folder/url at domain abc/admin/login

If I try to edit the saved loging to manually add ww.abc.com/admin/ ( user / password ) it says the user name already exists.

I want the username/saved login to be tied to the login page not only the domain?

The tab bar should distinguish the active tab (in part) by removing its bottom border. When I restart Firefox, the tab bar displays correctly but before long that bottom border of the active tab reappears. Changing to a different theme doesn't help. All I can think of is that perhaps I have too many add-ons or bookmarks installed. (I currently have just under 50 add-ons.) What can I do to keep that bottom border off the active tab?

When I delete a message, this window pops up which says: "The messages you have deleted can be purged from disk. This operation will save about 1.2 GB of disk space. Select the option below to let Thunderbird do this automatically without asking you." Over and Over. I always click "Cancel".

Is there any way I can make this stop happening? If not, is there any way an additional check-box can be added to the window? Something like "Stop asking this question"?

Thanks.

Updated to Firefox 86.0. MacOS. If I now attempt to access my router using its local address (192.x.x.1) it simply doesn't happen. I've allowed pop-ups for the sign in window - although it never needed it before. Tried http and https. Also have a bookmark for it which no longer works. All I get is a blank tab, yet there's some endless communication happening according to Menu Meters Rx/Tx display. If I do the same as always using Safari I can log into the router exactly as I always have done. Why? What has been changed? What has Firefox blocked? Help please.

So I bought a new computer. Installed Firefox and Thunderbird. Thunderbird will not open links properly in the Firefox browser. I get the following message: "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window." However, other links open fine. The browser that is open is working fine. I have gone to the point of refreshing firefox and opening with no extensions, and the same thing happens. I seem to have checked every setting that I have found information online and nothing changes the behavior. One idea was to reinstall Windows but I just bought the computer so that is a silly option as everything else is working just fine and running at a blistering rate.

I have LastPass extension on FF v86. It will logout of LP if I close the browser.

However if I leave my PC unattended for >10 minutes LP is supposed to auto log off. I have checked the settings in LP and they are set correctly.

LP still functions as it should when using the Opera browser.

I have reinstalled the LP extension. No change.

Hi group!

I have one (and only one) email that I can not delete. Some particulars: I'm running Thunderbird Version 68.10.0 (64-bit) on Linux Mint V19.3 Cinnamon, which is up-to-date. IMAP Server Name: imap.shaw.ca

From the SPAM email's "message source": Content-Type: multipart/alternative; boundary="--=NextPart-jenoloupno" Date: Thu, 25 Feb 2021 17:19:26 +0100 From: Trial Shark Tank <jenoloupno@jenoloupno.jenoloupno> Sender: <jenoloupno@jenoloupno.jenoloupno> Mime-Version: 1.0 Message-ID: <8347512003883392729@jenoloupno.jenoloupno> Subject: Cannabis Oil Breakthrough Leaves Doctors Speechless Reply-To: <jenoloupno@jenoloupno.jenoloupno>

Yesterday, when trying to delete the email, I was getting a message: "UID Store failed" every time I tried to delete the message. Today, I'm not getting this message, but I am still unable to delete this one email. I checked (via Webmail), and this message does not exist on the server.

I can "move" the email to Local Folders>Misc>crap, but when I re-open my inbox, it's there again. AND, in the "crap" folder. I've right-clicked the message in the inbox, and selected "Mark as read", but it still remain in bold as unread.

Fortunately (perhaps), I'd taken a TimeShift snapshot, copied my Home Directory, and saved my Thunderbird Profile Wed 24 Feb 2021 12:09:14 PM PST, before this SPAM came in on Thu, 25 Feb., 2021 at 17:19:26.

Any ideas how I can rid myself of this thing?

Thanks in advance,

- Ralph

I just updated Firefox on my Mac to Firefox 86.0 and the app itself became named Firefox 2. When it is running the name on dock is now Firefox 2.

I tried to change it back to plain Firefox (removing the space character and 2 from its name in the Application folder).

When I did that an relaunched it the display looked a bit weird and all of my bookmarks were gone!

Changing it back to Firefox 2 made it well again. I have never, ever seen Firefox do this.

I'm really beginning to wonder why I use Firefox. For years I've felt violently abused (it's not an exaggeration in my head) by the UI team who lord over it in a totalitarian way instead of just giving us options to not be constantly humiliated every day we use it.

The address bar has become my worst enemy lately. I keep staving off "86ing" Firefox from my life by editing the CSS this and that, when it worked just fine for years, but it changes and every time for the worse. How can we effectively get Firefox to give us options? Why are options so bad? Why do we not deserve options? I want to know how we can apply pressure on the institution to make FF usable again.

Here are a few examples, the last is the worst of them:

1) I want to have an X button on tabs, I just want to be able to delete a tab? Why can't I have an option for this? (I have to use crazy CSS script. Normal people don't go to that length. I would not adopt FF out of the box today.)

2) Many complain about the address bar that freaks out whenever you touch it. I want an option to disable that. (Again I have a CSS script that makes it act like normal productivity software. That's insane. Why can't we have an option to make the address bar behave like a normal HTML form element? I just want an option.)

3) As of FF 86 I can no longer use the address bar to perform searches. I've added the Search bar to my UI so I can do searches, but the browser still defaults to the address bar, so I have to click over to the Search bar. And if I use the address bar by accident, it laughs at me and refuses to process my search. I just want to be able to search with an address bar. I remember years ago having to remove the search bar because it would no longer search, but the address bar would search. My radical solution was to amputate the search bar. Now I'm in the complete opposite situation where the search bar searches but the address bar doesn't search. Again, I just want an option to be able to apply searches with my browser.

I just want an option for FF to not be aggressively hostile to me. It's not so simple as to ignore it. Every time you interact with the UI it's its own humiliation. It's a constant reminder of impotence. And questioning why do I subject myself to the whims of these people who're pulling my tail like I'm some monkey.

What the hell is wrong with Mozilla? Is is it still Mozilla? Why can't add-on people effectively address these problems if Mozilla won't? Why dictate how everything is, and then make everything unusable? Why?

How can we make our voices heard? Why can't Mozilla just kill FF if its goal seems to be to do that by making it unusable? Why not just close shop? Because some one will carry it on because it's open source? It really seems like someone wants FF to be unpopular. How else can we understand that it doesn't just give options? No even options in its crazy about:config system? Why am I in this masochistic relationship with FF? What's in it for FF?
