When I go to create a new bookmark in firefox I find that the file name is already allocated, and that file name is appearing on all old bookmarks as well. Instead of saying Other Bookmarks it says Location. This is only happening since I moved to Version 95.0 I have had to stop trying to create new bookmarks, and would appreciate any help I can get.

I have Firefox 96.0.1. As of this morning, images will no longer load on any websites. The only thing that has changed since yesterday is that I followed some advice from the Washington Post on how to prevent scam emails. I have spent nearly two hours searching for and following advice to restore images on Firefox, but nothing has worked. I need more direct assistance!

unable to turn off safe search when using Bing search. After clicking the more bars on the Bing search page and setting safe search to off, when checking if it is off, it has reverted to moderate. Firefox is vs 96.0.1. Setting is set to normal, not strict. Windows 10 preferences are set to safe search off. All caches have been cleared. I took off all extensions, ran malware bytes & cccleaner & anti-virus scan. I tried a refresh of Firefox. Nothing has helped.

Using Edge or Chrome browsers on the Bing search page, Safe search turns off as it should.

--There was a power failure, last night, which knocked off my computer.  That may or may not be related.  However, with both Edge and Chrome accessing Bing okay, it seems to definitely be a Firefox problem?

I open a new private window, go to a website such as Wikipedia, and use the in site search bar to search for say "dogs". Then close all private windows and all other Firefox windows, and re open a new regular Firefox window, both my search for "Wikipedia" is remembered by the search bar, and my search for "dogs" is remembered by Wikipedia. Clearing my cookies and deleting my browsing history does nothing to fix this. Reinstalling Firefox has also done nothing to fix this. Every bit of information i can find on the topic says Firefox's private browsing mode deletes cookies and history upon closing all windows, but this is not the case for me. My temporary patch is to remove all address bar suggestions from everywhere, but i only want private browsing mode to function as intended. Thank you for reading all this and i hope you can assist.

I sign into Firefox because I always believed it did something, but when I update the browser, I lose all my tabs. When restore previous session doesn't work, isn't that the point of signing into the browser so it remembers and you can push the whole Firefox session to another computer? Using this Firefox session on my MacBookPro and want it on my iMac and would like to know how to do that. Would like to know how to lock down the session too. What is going on right now, I don't understand where the session went. I'm logged in. What's the point of logging in? This is getting circular.

Firefox 96.01 seems to be blocking access to popmoney through my credit union's website. The error message states that I must allow third-party cookies, but Firefox 96 doesn't have an option to specifically enable/disable third-party cookies. I can do this easily on Microsoft Edge, so I have to fall back on Edge in order to use popmoney.

Copy of error message:

"We're sorry for this error. In order to use this service, your internet browser must accept third-party cookies. Please refer to your browser's online help for enabling cookies in your system. Please try again after you enable the cookies."

Well, even the pulldown is not working here. None of the solutions for the garbled text works for me (and now that pulldown option isn't always working) and I am about to permanently change to Safari after years of being a Firefox advocate and user. Without any way to actually ask an actual person about this question/problem and not being a programmer I am exceedingly frustrated and disappointed. I do have to agree with the commenter who said we shouldn't have to go through this just to get a website to display. I've tried several times to upload an image but frankly I feel like just giving up

Hi; When I close FF (V96.01) it does not seem to close properly and when restarted trys, usually unsuccesfully, to reopen previous tab. I have , open previous tabs and windows, unchecked in settings. I have tried both the X and exit. If I set, browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash, to false in options it does not happen. as per https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1292610. But when I reset session restore to true the problem resumes. This makes me believe FF is not closing properly Win10 is up to date with all latest updates as is FF.

Is there a fix for this?

Firefox version: 95.0.1 x64 on Linux Mint 19.1, running in safe-mode

As title says, the 'Mobile Bookmarks' folder synced from a Firefox Android aren't saved when exporting the bookmarks to an HTML file. They ARE saved during 'Backup to a JSON' but HTML with 20,000 bookmarks is much easier to edit than a JSON (unless anyone has a handy and quick JSON editor recommendation?).

So bug, or notbug?

Since January 14 2022, my Firefox (and other browsers like Safari & Chrome) can't load certain websites, notably meetup.com and guardian.co.uk.

I've checked with both ISP and Apple support (Macbook Air M1 2020 on Mac OS 12.1). After running tests, both maintain there are no issues with internet connectivity.

I'm aware that Mozilla (as far as Firefox goes) is working on a solution and has offered a workaround. I have tried it and it doesn't work.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

First: Firefox works for me without any problems when using it. Now to my problem and my question: Recently I looked through my event log and noticed that in the application log two app crashes of Firefox are logged again and again (mostly every 3 to 4 hours, sometimes even shorter). My problem now is that these logs also come from times where Firefox is not running. I am not primarily concerned with what is causing this, Firefox is working fine as written, but why Firefox is running there. Is this an automatic update search? My update settings are as follows: "Check for updates, but ask before installing", "Use a background service to install updates" is disabled. Also, it shows an incorrect version "95.0.2.8022" even though I already have "96.0.1" installed. I hope someone can answer my question and thanks in advance.

In addition the first eventlog message of those two: Fehlerbucket , Typ 0 Ereignisname: APPCRASH Antwort: Nicht verfügbar CAB-Datei-ID: 0

Hi, recently I setup a home server for my local lan. Through the use of AdGuardHome and Nginx Proxy Manager, I have attempted to redirect websites I wish to avoid (in this case adult websites). The problem is that Firefix gives the error code MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_SELF_SIGNED_CERT and won't allow me to create an exception. As an example, i've tried redirecting google.com to duckduckgo.com. I've looked up solutions to this but nothing has helped. Thanks

I do not get it. This browser has everyday now for the longest time gone downhill and it is just getting worse and worse to the point it is unusable. To navigate the internet one can no longer simply use the great firefox to do so. Besides the browswer having issues itself, it seems just about every webpage does not work on firefox at all either. Sync is a joke, history doesn't even work ans saving passwords is useless. But my last issue, enough is enough and I am done. Trying for quite so time figure out why firefox is not loading my school book. It is redirect the URL a million times. Mobile and desktop FF. Use chrome and now only does it work, it is faster. Just stop the project and move on. You guys had your run and obviously someone somewhere lost their values.
