continue in /questions/1427133 thread.

I was trying to save a mail message into a Local Folder, and Firefox produced the following pop-up message:


Error - bsn on Local Folders There is not enough disk space to download new messages. Try deleting old mail, emptying the Trash folder, and compacting your mail folders, and then try again.


I assumed that my C-drive was full, so I deleted a large file. The same message appeared. Then,after I realized that I could save messages into other Local Folders, I looked in the Local Folders directory. I saw that there was a file bsn.msf, but the bsn file was missing. I am restoring it from a backup from nine days ago. The pop-up message is clearly wrong/misleading. I am running 118.0.1 on Windows 10 Professional 22H2 64-bit. I see that I need to upgrade to 118.0.2, which I will do as soon as I finish entering this bug report.

For some reason I keep getting signed out of every website, sometimes while I'm still browsing the website. I tell it to stay logged in and remember me but it does not work. It is particularly annoying with whatsapp because it considers each new login as a separate device. Is this a setting I can turn off? A bug on ublock or adblocker? please help

I have FF set up to use only DDG. Part of this setup is that I have removed all other search engines from search options. Today Oct 7, 2023, when I booted up things were normal. About an hour ago I entered a search term in the browser and the search result came up on google. That should not be possible. I checked my settings and sure enough google has been added and placed atop DDG. Furthermore google cannot be removed when selected, the remove button is greyed out. The remove button is not greyed out when DDG is selected. !? What happened and how do I fix it?

Hello, what's wrong with the bookmarks thumbnails, that they don't display properly (not as the site's logo), only some default ones that look ugly. Only some tabs have thumbnails. I have freshly installed firefox on a new PC and I've been using it for another day and nothing changes, I visit these websites constantly and these icons still look like this. It will stay like this or is it some browser error ?

Greetings

I have observed this bug only in Disqus, but another Disqus user has seen it in other web sites viewed via Firefox, so maybe you could check your logic. Here is the original bug:

When entering a Disqus comment [or possibly other text boxes] and using the Enter key to end the first paragraph, the text typed so far is erased. It can be recovered by immediately pressing Ctrl+Z (Undo), but this is not obvious; most users will think they just lost that text, and will retype it. This was sporadic for a year or two, but right now (morning of 10/2/2023) it seems to happen on every comment I type. In the past, it only occurred on the FIRST Enter key, at least if I recovered via Undo. The only contact I have with Disqus is in the comments on an episode of the Kevin and Kell webcomic (https://kevinandkell.com). I am running Windows 10 on a Bootcamp'ed Mac, and my browser is the latest version of Mozilla Firefox.

Disqus user FreedomFighter replied:

That is a common problem unique to Firefox. When you hit enter and the post erases, right click in the box and click on "Undo" to get the text back, then you can do what you need to do whether is type more words, or post the comment.

[His recovery is essentially the same as mine, only using the mouse rather than the keyboard.]

Could this be an interaction between Firefox and Disqus? I have not personally seen this on any other website via Firefox, but FreedomFighter apparently has seen it elsewhere.

I posted earlier about a search settings problem. I have been monkeying with things until I got a reply7 that led me to a fix. Except now I cannot see my addons on the toolbar and can't figure out how to make them visible. They seem to be there if I scroll over the spot but are not visible to me so that I can use them. Right click gives me the drop menu but left click gives nothing. And how do you get rid of that dang puzzle piece thing?

Latest crash report: bp-c7581c18-335d-41c6-826e-383c40231009

Firefox blinks and then crashes when attempting to visit various websites, specifically Unsplash.com (a stock photo site) but also inconsistently on other pages including Google search results pages. I have tried refreshing, uninstalling and reinstalling, ensuring all my drivers are up to date, and disabling hardware acceleration and webGL. The only time the browser works consistently without crashing is in Troubleshoot Mode.

I recently moved my other PC to Windows 10, then put on Firefox (browser). When I drop down the menu below the address bar, I see random web sites I apparently have used -- not what I want to see. I want what my laptop (Firefox on Windows 10, also) shows which is a set of web sites that I visit often. That list is fixed and does not deviate. THAT is what I want for my the other PC with the new Windows 10 on it. What setting(s) in Firefox controls this? I have attached a screenshot of the preferred drop down menu that I cannot seem to duplicate on the new Windows 10.

Thanks to all in advance for whatever advice you might offer.

there used to be an add on called roomy bookmarks that stopped working so people found ways around to replicate it and it works on win 10 but I just switched to Win 11 and this solution doesnt seem to work anymore for me, anyone know if i need to change anything?

    Locate your firefox profile folder, in this article they say where you can find it: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder
   Find your profile folder mine was: C:\Users\***\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\***.default\
   Locate a folder called chrome (if it doesn't exists create one through your O.S) must be lowercase
   Locate inside chrome folder the file: userChrome.css (if it doesn't exists create one through your O.S, google how to create a .css file on notepad) Chrome must be cased as shown above
   Add the code: https://pastebin.com/1r6cc8hW
   Restart Firefox, now you are done, if you don't want text to be displayed within the icons just remove the last line. 

This is the line of code i have in css file that works for me in my win 10 machine.

/*

* Recreates the basic functionality of the popular Roomy Bookmarks Toolbar add-on in Firefox 57+.
* Uncomment the section with the functionality that you want, leave all other sections commented.
* This only affects toplevel toolbar bookmarks and folders, bookmarks and subfolders in folders are unaffected.
* The tooltips on long hover (showing bookmark name and link) are unaffected.
*/
/* some margin settings, do not comment out */

.bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-text {

 margin-top: -1px !important;

} .bookmark-item {

 margin: -1px !important;

}


/* No text on toolbar bookmarks; Text on bookmark folders. No hover effect. */

  1. PlacesToolbarItems > .bookmark-item:not([container]):not([open="true"]) > .toolbarbutton-text {
 display: none !important;

}

  1. PlacesToolbarItems > .bookmark-item:not([container]):not([open="true"]) > .toolbarbutton-icon[label]:not([label=""]) {
 margin-inline-end: 0px !important;

}


/* No text on toolbar bookmarks; No text on bookmark folders. Show bookmark text on hover. */ /*

  1. PlacesToolbarItems > .bookmark-item:not(:hover):not([open="true"]) > .toolbarbutton-text {

Hello,

I have requested support for this issue multiple times. Please assist.

Firefox always displayed my website main image until the latest update. Now on any device that uses the Firefox browser my main website homepage image does not display leaving a huge white area on the homepage. This of course is now a major issue that did not exist with this same image before.

Nothing has changed in the programming of my website which is why I need support from your tech and if anything is blocked could Firefox please unblock my main image to show on all Firefox browsers?

Website: https://herlifetherapist.com

I look forward to your quick response.

Thank you
