Prior to updating to Windows 11 I was able to specify the bookmark folder that I wanted to save the bookmark in when I pressed "Bookmark Current Tab" or "Ctrl-D". Now it automatically saves the bookmark in the "Other Bookmarks" folder instead of allowing me to save it in my desired folder? I then have to find the saved bookmark and manually move it to the desired folder. Is there a fix for this or is this a permanent feature change? Thanks for your help.

setting the default location for Forecast fox.

I seem unable to do this, but I should easily be able to, but despite numerous attempts, I can't figure out how. I've finally given up, hence this plea for help.

If you have a solution, please let me know... Thanx in advance.

I'll not divulge my opinions of this FireFox add-on.

Recently, I've found I cannot successfully submit a superchat donation on Youtube while using Firefox. I was successful using Edge browser. Firefox asks to confirm the card number I'm using to chat, but then once acknowledged, the screen stays grey/white and doesn't ever clear to process the chat.

With color perception limited vision, I cannot distinguish default colors for visited/not-visited link colors. I tried changing colors in Settings via:

Colors / Override FF's default colors for text, website backgrounds, and links:

I changed the colors to what suits my needs BUT just changing those colors ALSO put focus(?) lines around various texts and randomly changes colors elsewhere in arbitrary fashion making my changes unacceptable. What am I doing wrong?

I am not stupid, but I do not understand the langauge used in describing "modifications." It would be useful for people in similar states of lack of knowledge to have at least maps/legends of web pages explaining the arcane language of webs.

TIA Stephen

Keep getting the message on new Tab page..."500 Internal Error". Tried a search of it, found correction suggestions...did a soft & hard reboot=nothing. Tried finding the Firefox Cache, that said to delete, but can't find that file in the Settings tab in Firefox. So can't do any searches in Firefox for 2 days now. Can you help to resolve this? Or, do I have to delete Firfox & go to another browser?

Hello, I am working on a web app where quite sizable around 45 mb webassembly module is used. The wasm file it self is cached by the browser but it is compiled to the device on every page refresh and it takes some time. I would like to cache this compiled module, but didn't find any information how this could be done except some 5 years old information about using indexed db and then information about removing that possibility.

How one could cache compiled web assembly module?

In about.config i set javascript.enabled false for most browsing, unless i really need to do otherwise (e.g. ecommerce). If i close the app (menu quit), and restart it, javacript.enabled is reset true. This behaviour is not replicated for other settings i may make, e.g. dom.storage.enabled, or permissions.default.image. Being Android i have no root so no possibility of creating a user.js to override Firefox ignoring my settings. This seems to be a bug. Version is Android Nightly version 121.0a1, 2023-11-05.

In HTTPS-Only mode I quite often get a message that the site does not support https but when I Continue the page I land on is a https page. I can't understand what's happening here: does the site have a https page Firefox can't detect or is HTTPS-Only creating the https connection for me, or is it only pretending to be https and there is no real extra security? If someone could enlighten me as to what's happening I'd be most grateful. I have a couple of screenshots to show what I mean, but perhaps you know exactly what I'm talking about anyway! I'd add I can't see anything in the Help articles that seems to deal with this situation, but perhaps I'm just being a bit dense (not unknown!). Hoping you can clarify this for me.
