Hello, I have recently purchased a new laptop computer as my old one crashed. It is running Windows 10 which is new and unfamiliar to me. I am also using Firefox V85 as my default browser. In building my new bookmarks folder list I found the folder icons are coloured a nasty shade of grey. However, running Firefox on older operating systems (eg XP or Windows 8.1) the folders are a pleasing yellow colour. I have exhausted myself trawling the web, Youtube, and the Firefox help topics in trying to find a way to change the folder icon colour, but with no sucess. Please accept my apologies as I suspect that this question will have been asked before, but I cannot find any references to it. If anyone knows how to do this, please be aware that, whilst I am literate, I don't necessarily understand arcane computer terminology so I would welcome a simple key stroke by key stroke walk through. If there is a fix, it needs to work in both the Toolbar and the Sidebar. Many Thanks Chris

I'm posting this again because I really need help! Also because I'm afraid I messed something up by replying to my own question. But I kept getting the "A copy of Firefox is already open" error, so I deleted one of the two profiles that I found. Apparently I chose the wrong one, and now all of my bookmarks are gone. I DID click something that said NOT to remove all my information (bookmarks, etc) so there must be a way to get it back, but how? I really only care about the bookmarks. Also want to mention that I'm on Mac, not Windows. I tried something called Recuva but I can't run .exe files on my Mac.

I am trying to update the primary email associated with my Firefox account. My primary email is listed as <primary@domain.name>, for example. My secondary email is not assigned. When I try to add <preferred.email@domain.name> to my secondary email, I get the message: "Secondary email must be different than your account email"

I do not see this "account email" listed anywhere. Where do I find it, and how can I change it?

Many thanks, bd89

Subject: Avast Internet module and Firefox for mac 88.0.1

Dear Mozilla volunteer,

I need your help. I have just purchased AVAST Ultimate and I am having problems with my beloved Firefox browser. The message I receive is:

"Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to www.facebook.com. Peer’s certificate has an invalid signature.

Error code: SEC_ERROR_BAD_SIGNATURE

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem."

This happens with any site, even with the Mozzila site. I am now using Safari, but I am a firefox person so, please, help me.

Thank you in advance.

1) Reinstalled Thunderbird doesn't open. (Had a lot of professional help yesterday with settings and other things of which I didn't understood anything.) I'm 75 and do need my e-mail a.s.a.p. 2) Change Firefox language from English to Swedish. I've tried myself in the lower right corner but it always sets back to English.

Authorization for studies is unchecked on my account. When I notice that I participated in 2 remote-studies without me knowing anything about it, nor when it was done, nor why :

T =TopSites Launch Phase 3 - US v2•Terminée TopSites + Redirect Launch T=TopSites Launch Phase 3 - GB•Terminée TopSites Redirect Launch

 Why is Firefox doing  remote-studies from 2 continents on my account without my consent? nor telling me anything about it? 

It is true that I've been redirected using Firefox for quite a while with no idea why (not a good grade as far as privacy is concerned...).

...and I don't receive any error messages. I've made sure it wasn't just my selected homepage. I tried other major cites like CNN.com, Amazon.com, etc. I just see a blank tab. However if I use Chromium (I run the latest LTS release of LinuxMint w/ Xfce desktop) websites open just fine.

I was attempting to configure a symbolic link to a security certificate so that I could run Schwab StreetSmart via Citrix Workspace via the directions given here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/59905065/using-schwab-streetsmart-edge-cloud-on-linux-citrix-error

This is the command I ran: sudo ln -s /usr/share/ca-certificates/mozilla/DigiCert_Global_Root_G2.crt /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/keystore/cacerts/DigiCert_Global_Root_G2.pem

I then rebooted as the instructions say and when the system came back up I opened up FireFox and I wasn't able to access any sites. Also when I click on the drop down menu and click on "Preferences" in FireFox nothing happens. No error messages.

I even tried removing and reinstalling FireFox, it didn't help. I'm at a loss.

I added a few exceptions for internal servers with self-signed certificates via Settings->Security->Show Certificates->Server->Add Exception (permanent exceptions). But these exceptions do not prevent the certificate warning on first connect, after restarting firefox I always need to allow a exception for all of these servers (I have mutiple tabs with monitoring / management sites for some servers open). How to get rid of the warning ? (I can't use let's encrypt certificates on the server, because the server have no internet connection.). Additional: In the german version of the certificate management dialog are certificate name ("Zertifikatsname") and server name ("Servername") column headings (or data) exchanged, the "certificate name" column shows the server name and vice versa.

I click a magnet link and it keeps asking me what to do and I have already told it to do this automatically from now on. It even has the checkbox already ticked as if it is fkn retarded. I have refreshed firefox and nope I have uninstalled firefox and reinstalled it nope. I have checked all the forums about it and even made it so that the system cannot alter the default torrent program. Still, nothing works. I am so angry coz it used to be fine. So sick of updates that "fix" stuff... It would be nice if it just bloody worked.

Hi, lately I have been trying to tackle my secondary HDD being spun up for no reason in the background and one thing that keeps popping up is Firefox.exe accessing a bunch of fonts contained in the Solidworks installation on the HDD (which is a secondary drive, while Firefox is installed on the primary SSD).

I really cannot understand why it happens, since I think nobody is supposed to install Solidworks along with Firefox. Of course I don't want this activity to wake up my drive, but also, is it normal? I have to admit I'm kinda worried.

I'll attach screenshots from Sysinternals Process Monitor

Thanks in advance to anyone that will help :)

I use a Logitech MX Master 3 mouse, without any custom Logitech or other mouse software. When I press the mouse's back/forward buttons, instead of navigating back/forward, Firefox enter Scroll Mode (more info here). This is the same behaviour as when pressing the middle mouse button. However, I already have the middle mouse button for that! I want the back/forward buttons on the mouse to navigate back/forward. See the attached image for the back and forward buttons I'm referring to: they're directly under the horizontal scroll wheel.

Is there a way for Firefox to register the back/forward button presses as back/forward navigation commands?
