What's the current instruction for deleting IRLs from the address bar pull down menu? This is not about the history, per se, of having been to any location. All I would like to do is delete several extraneous IRLs that are in the pull down menu which I don't need or rarely use, at least from that location.

Thanks.

Since late last night, I've been having issues connecting to Facebook when using Firefox. Through my own troubleshooting efforts, I've run multiple Virus and Malware scans via AVG, Malware Bytes, TDSS Killer and Microsoft Safety Scanner, to no avail. What doesn't help is that when checking Facebook in Chrome, the error code I get is NET::ERR_SSL_OBSOLETE_VERSION relating to TLS 1.0 and 1.1. Are there other things I should try on my end as to the cause of this issue?

To my knowledge, the issue is only with Facebook. Other websites I frequent are connecting with no issues.

Bonjour, J'ai supprimé par inadvertance les identifiants de Firefox pour iOS - je croyais que Lockwise allait remplir les champs à la manière de Lastpass (!)... Quand la synchronisation s'est faite avec le mac, j'ai perdu tous mes identifiants aussi sur Firefox browser - bizarement quelques jours plus tard alors que la synchronisation se faisait bien entre temps pour l'historique . J'ai arrêté Firefox Sync et j'ai pu récupérer une sauvegarde de mon profil. Sauf que quand je synchronise à nouveau, mes identifiants disparaissent ! Faut-il que je crée un nouveau compte ? Merci par avance pour vos réponses. C'est très ennuyeux. Je n'utilise pas d'autre navigateur/gestionnaire et tous mes mots de passe sont là.

I recently reset my computer because of performance issues. When relaunching FireFox, MSN is now my Home Page. I never selected or used MSN, but its there and I can't get rid of it. I have tried several times via the Settings tab, I have also tired on several occasions to drag a different tab to the Home Page Icon, but MSN just won't go away. I also tried to restore to an earlier version of FireFox, but no success. When working on the Settings tab, there is no "save" option. Is that normal?

Is it possible to have folders with a lot of bookmarks displayed in multiple columns, instead of the scroll arrow?

Side question, is it possible to reduce bookmark list item thickness? I like the redesign, but the bookmarks are super thick, would much prefer the old, thin ones.

Very recently, despite having no previous issues, Startpage no longer functions when using the built in search bar on the Android app. I followed their instructions previously to change the default search engine on the app using the custom option. Now it appears neither the generic or Firefox specific (https://www.startpage.com/do/dsearch?query=%s) search string is working - both give me an "Address Not Found " error. Furthermore, when re-adding the search engine, the same error is shown in the custom options page, indicating it cannot connect. I've aslo contacted their support but thought I'd ask here too.

Firefox always deletes cookies for some websites when it's restarted. While working in non-private mode I checked, that the setting for removing the cookies on closing is set to off. Then I tried adding some websites to the exception list for this setting, no luck. I made sure that cookies on those websites are persistent, not session only, and they are working in other browsers. I tried disabling the plugins, but it didn't help either. It's somewhat annoying, because now I have to adjust cookie preferences every time I visit my favourite websites. I use "standard" protection settings.

Thanks Cor-el for replying with advice on how to use about:config to ensure the screencapture was toggled correctly. It wasn't and I corrected that. Now I have the icon in the toolbar and on the right click menu but when I attempt to use them all I get is a popup menu with a large black X in it and nothing can be done with it. Also, on the toolbar items that are added to it all appear in the overflow and there is no way of getting them to appear on the screen by reducing the size of the search bar. I've been using firefox ever since it first appeared and I've never had problems like this before.
