My laptop is often "borrowed"; access to my "recently bookmarked" items can (occasionally) be inappropriate. I am surprised that there is not a 'easy to access' method to toggle it OFF (!?) I found the below describing how to does this. HOWEVER, I do not find the key (showRecentlyBookmarked).

SUGGESTIONS ?

using: Windows 10 Home 22H2 build 19045.3930


Directly Edit a Preference The menu item switches a hidden preference from true to false, and you can do that directly as follows: (A) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful. (B) In the search box above the list, type or paste book and pause while the list is filtered (C) Double-click the browser.bookmarks.showRecentlyBookmarked preference to switch the value from true to false

Despite reading almost 100 questions about this exact issue asked for years, there still seems to be no answer, and no fix to get this function to work properly.

Checking the box should completely remove the drop box for location, and the entire point is that it should ask you where to save every file,instead of defaulting.

Hello, I'm seeking assistance with my website, https://blogbuzzz.com/, which I frequently access and manage using Mozilla Firefox. I've been encountering slow loading times, formatting & Security warning issues. This issue seems to be specific to Firefox, as I don't experience it in other browsers. Could you please help me understand why this is happening and how to resolve it? Any insights into browser-specific settings or adjustments that I need to consider for optimal website performance in Firefox would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!"

Although strict privacy is set, I am able to logg into websites, although lock icon displays message "Connection verified by a certificate issuer that is not recognized by Mozilla"

Hello,

NOTICE: Currently using Firefox 120.0.1 "Update disabled by your system administrator" I am unable to update the browser, the computers are from the public library.

Like I state in the Subject, I configure the browser to strict privacy level, and I am able to visit any site I want. No problem. But on all of these, when I click the lock icon on the address bar I read "Connection verified by a certificate issuer that is not recognized by Mozilla." In fact, right now, I am visiting this website and I got that notice. View image "Firefox broser does not recognize the certificate issuer fortinet but I can visit the firefox suport website - Screenshot 2024-01-28 172732.png"

WOW... View the image "certificate issuer not recognized by Firefox - fortinet - when visiting support.firefox.com - Screenshot 2024-01-28 173041.png" for some of the info I get if I view more information about the certificate.

Then, after I logged out, the "Clear cookies and site data" link that appears after clicking the lock icon I mentioned before do not appear.

View the image "UNable to clear cookies and site data - proton.me - Screenshot 2024-01-28 141951 - edited.png"

In this same computer, I got the control "Clear cookies and site data." View image "able to clear cookies and site data - virustotal.com - Screenshot 2024-01-28 141825.png"

So more than one question:

I read other posts where users are unable to visit a website which has a certificate issued by an issuer that is not recognized by Mozilla. Why am I able to visit these websites?

What can I expect of the non appearing "Clear cookies and site data" link I described before?

Are these computers like totally hacked?

This is more of a suggestion than a question, unless there is a hidden feature that I was not able to locate.

I know that the Master password helps to make sure that my password is safe. It would be also be nice if the next release will prevent to open a website that has a "stay signed in" window.

I recently upgraded my hardware and wiped my old drive, and I assumed I would be able to login through google directly and just recover my bookmarks that way. However, I can ONLY get in through a password (that I KNOW, but maybe its a character off, its driving me crazy) to recover my bookmarks despite being able to login to mozilla using my main email; which I have access to. I havent reset my password yet, so my bookmarks are probably still uploaded there. Very frustrating I was never notified that they changed it so that if you reset your password you lose your bookmarks, otherwise I would've written down this password. I've been collecting these bookmarks for years before this. is there a way to recover it through my gmail login?

Thanks for any help, Eric

I use a password manager. Many of the web-based services I subscribe to use my email address as my user name - this is quite common.

When I am trying to login to one of these pages, your "Let Firefox hide your email address" message pops up over the selection box from my password manager. There doesn't seem to be an easy way to remove your message - which, in this context is totally inappropriate - but your message prevents me from logging in to my account when I need to choose between identities (example, work and personal).

Can I turn these messages off? or can you add a simple "X" to the window so I can close it without that action being picked up by my password manager?
