Specifically, form entries at https://www.familysearch.org/search/ are not saved. Seamonkey works while Firefox and some other browsers do not. I've been through all the online help on this and don't think I missed anything. I know that my BIOS is not current and am postponing that adventure till I can get some assistance.

OS Name Microsoft Windows 10 Pro N Version 10.0.17763 Build 17763 System Model HP Z1 Workstation System Type x64-based PC Processor Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E31245 @ 3.30GHz, 3301 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Procs. BIOS Version/Date Hewlett-Packard J52 v02.74, 21-Oct-16

I am unable to use location access in my mac firefox browser. When using the Met office uk for example I get this message each time. Sorry. We could not get your position because your web browser or device did not give permission to use your location. I have looked at the preference settings and the met office is allowed.

I use Firefox Enterprise on both Windows and macOS, this alone is the single reason why I gravitate towards Firefox the most, it might be even my main browser, I really don't know which is since I have at least 2 opened at any given time, normally 3 or 4. The best part of it is that I don't have to set it up, it's all done. I use Firefox Sync just in case I use Firefox somewhere else, like a phone or Linux, or to push a page to another device (really, it's pulling the history bc push has never worked) but I can live without it.

When I use Firefox on Linux though, it's a night and day experience, it feels like I have to setup Firefox from scratch even after logging into Firefox Sync, it's only synced selectively mostly cares about useless stuff or stuff that I wouldn't let the browser save, like passwords, partly (but very little) because of privacy but mostly because I use a ton of browsers, I can't micromanage each. I even disable all of this via policy and that's what I'm looking to do, find how to deploy policies on Linux clients. I assume is just a config file like the preference list on Macs, even if it's not automated it should be easy to make available centrally a pull it on demand and drop it in the right place with some script but I have to find how's it done first and what settings will there be supported, none of that available in the documentation of Firefox Enterprise.

Fedora Server 32 now comes with an easy GUI for 389 DS (not FreeIPA for some reason) and a deployment tool for desktops both as Cockpit modules, which is also the GUI used by Red Hat in a lot of their products, OpenShift for instance. I wonder if I could use this to deploy Firefox settings. It even connects to Active Directory out of the box, if it could only process Windows policies... anyway. Is there some obscure documentation, maybe in beta, that goes over any of this?

Thanks.

How can I retrieve lost bookmarks? Syncing between two Firefox browsers replaced my newer bookmarks with the bookmarks of my less-often used browser. I expected the newer bookmarks to appear on the other browser. But instead the more-often used browser now has the same bookmarks as the less-oft used one.

Firefox continues to stymie my efforts to go to a linked page. It automatically says " Firefox has prevented this page from automatically redirecting to another page". Heck, I asked for the link and do it all the time. Yet I can't figure out how to defeat this option.

Yes, I know I can take the extra step and just override it when it appears. But I'd like to think I can avoid having to do this all the time.

Thanks for any suggestions

Your Last Update was a MESS! I never consented to automatic updates however, when my computer crashed because my power cord came out, I returned to my compute to an update screen. Who asked you? I would prefer to control my own updates. Needless to say, my regEdit had been 'messed with and all my shortcuts were removed. You may be well-meaning by I find your tactics despicable.

You used to be a thoughtful company but i guess the good ones can't maintain thine own integrity when folx like Google shows up and slams everybody against the wall with their snooping! I've been using your browser for a very long time because I thought you were more considerate than the likes of Microsoft and Chrome. Capitalism has 'eff'ed everybody up I guess; why should you be any different. PLEASE don't change my settings UNLESS I ASK YOU TO. I am not stupid and don't need you to make choices for me.
