Imported Bookmarks Do Not Appear In Highlights (forum search shows problem persisting for years)

Highlights only shows bookmarks added from Firefox, not those imported from an html file. There is no obvious way to fix this inconvenient behavior and no clear solution here or in other forums.

Moving the bookmarks to different locations in bookmark library has no effect. Obviously, there must be some setting or code that causes this and it should not be the default.

As a nontechnical user I am limited in my ability to find and fix the problem. But from a logical standpoint those highlights are populated from somewhere. Being able to change that location or move the imported bookmarks there should not be an easter-egg hunt.

This seems to be an ongoing and unaddressed issue. It probably persists because, while annoying, after failed attempts to resolve or get the community to address the issue, it becomes easier to just re-add the bookmarks.

As someone giving the browser a shot after deciding Opera was basically adware. This annoyance is a fairly disheartening switching cost.

Any help would be appreciated.

Searching for bookmarks that disappeared, I discovered that my bookmarks are badly messed up. There appears to be two tiers of bookmarks (see image), and I have no idea how it got that way. Is there any way I can merge the 2nd tier back to the main tier? Running latest FF ESR version, Win10PRO 64 bit. Thanks....

Hello.

I am using a Raspberry Pi 400, which is 64-bit, but Mozilla Firefox automatically downloaded version 78.10.0esr (32-bit), and when I look in 'add-ons' and then 'plugins' in order to access the Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc., it isn't there. It is not mentioned anywhere at all, and so I am unable to watch Channel 4, which requires I enable DRM content.

Please help? Thanks.

My banking institution 'updated' and since then I am asked for 2 step verification almost every time I log in. I do NOT have that checked. My FF privacy settings are to allow cookies for their website, and the adblocker has been set to allow this website. Yet I am still asked. The idiots at my banking institution insist it is FF and suggested I call them for help. Seriously. That is how dumb they are. They want me to send screenshots of my pc to show FF settings, which is NOT POSSIBLE! They are dumb dumb dumb. I don't know what else to do. No problem for years til their wonderful update. Ready to switch accounts. Any ideas about settings on FF?

Just recently, I can not login into several websites using "Firefox". With other browsers, I have no problem. For example, whenever I try to login to Evernote , I get the following error: "The page isn’t redirecting properly. An error occurred during a connection to www.evernote.com. This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies." I had no prior problems before and I have made no changes to my settings. Apparently, there is something broken in Firefox because no other browsers produce this error. I have already tried the suggested solutions such as clearing history, cache and everything else. I have even uninstalled and re-installed several times but it always eventually returns to this state. Firefox has always been my favorite browser,but if this error can not be fixed, I have no problem dropping it forever and switching to a more reliable browser. Please fix this,don't force me to change browsers.

I am unable to open my Firefox on my computer because I receive a message saying that my computer cannot find the following file: vcruntime140_1.dll. I have tried uninstalling Firefox, and the reinstalling Firefox. This did not solve the missing file problem. I have tried re-installing Firefox. This did not solve the problem. The file is still missing. When I click on my Firefox App, all I get is a blank screen. I am unable to use Firefox. This computer uses Windows 10 with a 64 bit. I have several other computers, with Firefox installed, and I do not have this problem on any other computers using either Windows 10, Windows XP, or with a recent version of Linux. What procedure can I follow to restore this missing file to this computer? Your help would be greatly appreciated. I have some knowledge of computers, but I lack technical knowledge. Any help you can give will be deeply appreciated. Thank you

I'm trying to migrate my Firefox from a very old 42.0 version (where I was stuck due to valuable plugins discontinuity) to some actual version (Mac OS). Attempt to just install the latest version doesn't work because it cannot properly convert stored passwords and the places database.

From the support article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/lockwise-losing-login-information-firefox-update, I know that for passwords I should at least visit the intermediate version 68, which should be able to convert older passwords database.

What other upgrade points should I visit to successfully overcome the gap?

How do you have the Touch Bar show word and emoji suggestions when typing?

Expected

When typing text while using Firefox browser, the Touch Bar is expected to provide suggestions, i.e. words and emojis.

e.g. Chrome enables this feature

Actual

The Touch Bar does not provide word or emoji suggestions when using Firefox browser. This seems potentially related to the "Keyboard" setting "Touch Bar typing suggestions" that is not showing for Firefox.

Configuration

  • macOS: 11.3.1
  • Firefox: 88.0.1

После загрузки очередного обновления Windows 10 Version 20H2 стало происходить мелькание картинок, размещенных на странице браузера. Мелькания короткие, мгновенные и частые. иногда их можно привязать к движению курсора. Сильно раздражает. В других браузерах этого не происходит. Полгода назад была такая же проблема. Устранил откатом обновления W10. Но сейчас это уже невозможно, так как Microsoft настаивает на обновлении.

Hello. I have recently been experiencing lots of problems with Thunderbird E-mails. Often I am unable to send any mails at all. Although the in-box seems to work OK. Checked with my ISP yesterday ( Talk Talk ) and was advised they no longer support Tiscali E-mails ! However, that later turned out to be incorrect. Apparently they still support Tiscali - but only for existing telephone and broadband customers like me. However, I am advised to change my account settings from POP 3 to IMAP. ( not quite sure why ! )

If I am to change the settings to IMAP could someone please let me have some simpole and easy-to-follow steps for an " oldie " like me so I don't make any mistakes. Also, please could you confirm that if I make the switch I will still be able to keep my existing tiscali.co.uk E-mail domain name ? I want to retain that E-mail address in any event. Is that possible ?

Finally, I would want to copy a couple of hundred incoming and out-going E-mails to the IMAP account, or, if not possible, then I would need to make a back-up copy of two or three hundred incoming and out-going E-mails which are already on Thunderbird but I don't know how to go about this. Could someone please send me some easy-to-follow instructions,

I have to say that all of this seems very complicated just to change from POP 3 to IMAP in order to keep Talk Talk happy ! I don't use multiple accounts and would prefer to stick with POP 3. Help and advice please on what to do.

Many thanks. SG.
