I have searched and tried everything, but I cannot delete old bookmarks. I have tried to click on the blue bookmark star, delete from the edit tab, open all Bookmarks and try to right click and delete. Nothing happens, but I can add new bookmarks. The bookmarks window does not have an organize tab to manage the links that way either. Is there a glitch in the system for macbooks?

The only advice available right now is using Nightly version as if I'm ready to sacrifice stability over about: config access. The main question is, why was it removed? Is it really accessible in Nightly if the advice was for 79 and I'm on 81 already that I guess should have included changes from Nightly of two versions prior.

Hello I have been very stupid. I have a lot of useful Firefox logins, passwords and bookmarks, stored on a computer which now won't boot. The data were not synced to any other device. I can read the C drive using a system rescue disk, and have been able to copy emails and other data to a working computer. Is there any way to copy the Firefox data from the non-working computer and import to Firefox on my working machine? Basically I need to know, in terms of directory and file names, where Firefox stores these data, and any problems in reading these files. The dead computer used Windows 10, version 2004. Firefox used automatic update, so would be the latest version as of last Wednesday. Many thanks for any help. Peter Kenny

I have several network calendars running. One of them miraculously stopped showing its events and appointments, the others work fine. I tried every button & checkbox I could find but nothing made it come back.

Fun fact: When I use my other router or a different connection to the internet it works just fine (????). Internet connection is always present though.

The latest Thunderbird update seems to have negated the ability to use alternate email addresses in outgoing messages. I am able to specify an alternate email address to use as the "email" & "reply to" addresses in my identity, yet the outgoing message now always uses my base address which is the one I wish to disguise. When recipients reply, it is now always received on my base address, not the alternate address I have specified in the identity. It worked previously, so I assume a recent update ruined it.

My email uses a Google IMAP server, which I didn't want yet was forced into by my service provider. I am wondering if I must convert the Google server to POP to regain the email identity functionality.

I have researched this site and elsewhere, and tried everything I can. Is there a way, in firefox 81.0.2 (latest as of this post according to mozilla) to remove amazon and google from the "top sites" suggestions. For every other website, firefox lets you remove them from the list easily, but not with amazon or google. Ive removed it, deleted all history, clicked the dismiss button, the remove button, nothing, its still there. To prove that its an advertisement by firefox, even when I tried editing the link, firefox simply re-added the original one for me (how convenient!). Ive been with firefox almost 2 decades now, but if they are going to force advertising like this than obviously I need to look into other options.

Hi Matt, Thank you for your quick reply.

When sending an e-mail, i hold the control down and hit my list individually, as to who I want to send to.

Also when holding the control down, i hit the 'bcc' initially, and as i am starting with each highlighted name, after a few names it pops in to the 'to' column.

It all goes to the 'to' person, not to the 'bcc' before i am finished highlighting the names. Also i use 2 columns in my address book, my major column ( being personal address book) has names from the secondary column, (collected addresses,) pop into the major column automatically, weird.

I then delete the unwanted name and next time i email it pops back into the unwanted column. Is this clear for you to understand my delemma?

Thanks Wayne

I just changed my browser because the version I had before wasn't compatible with a site I needed to use for school. On this version instead of using the cursor designs that are used everywhere else, it uses it's own versions and I can't find a way to change this. When I go to click on a link it turns into this really ugly version of the hand cursor instead of the normal one. I know this doesn't seem important but it's actually triggering panic attacks for me. Please help! I'm using linux mint.

This happens when along with the search result google website deploys what it calls "Knowledge panel's". These are boxes of information related to what was asked in the search box, and appear not all the time but at certain (more common/famous) topics and persons. when that happens, despite the fact that I have the browser at full screen open, the wide screen monitor appears too small to the google website, which is unusual.

This manifests itself in the form of a horizontal bar at the bottom of Firefox browser's tab that I'm supposed to slide in order to see the edges on the right side. This never happened in dozens of years of use of this browser. It started happening in recent weeks. I initially thought it would go away but it hasn't. Even tho by now I have gone out of my way to open a new profile. This problem persists even when I have all addons disabled. Concurrently when I open other browsers google.com shows no horizontal bars.

I am aware that this problem can be mitigated if I reduce the Firfox's zoom down to 90%. However I don't consider this a solution on a small laptop (1366 X 676).

Firefox sync has not been working for me for some time, and I'd like to get it operational again. I'm trying to sync between a Mac Pro (FF 81.0.2), a MacBook Pro (FF 81.0.2) and an iPhone 6 (FF Daylight 29.0). Nothing whatsover syncs.

So far, I've updated all browsers, and re-paired the iPhone with the QR code. I've also logged out of my FF accounts at the same time on all devices, and back in again. (That's what's recommended at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-sync-troubleshooting-and-tips#w_i-set-up-firefox-sync-but-nothing-is-syncing, though that links to a page that is said to be out of date).

I can't see any obvious errors in the computer names, or anything else.

Any suggestion for further investigation, please?
