Why can't I put bookmarks into folders? I've followed all the instructions but nothing works. Bookmarks cannot be created or moved to folders.

Edit/select folder/

There is no option to accept only back arrow. Bookmarks never move.

Tried option to create new with same result.

Seems no way organize bookmarks in android.

I've been dealing with this issue for a long time now, without finding any solution

On macOS, whenever I am using Bluetooth headphones (Sony XM4, Airpods Pro), videos will hang for a few seconds just as the video is starting. This happens again if I pause/unpause or if I seek forward/backward on a video. The video "spinning animation" will appear and it will take 2-3 seconds for the video to start. This happens immediately, even if I click pause/start fast (ie: this is not after some delay necessarily). Also, if I mute audio on the video, the issue does not manifest itself.

During the waiting, Firefox itself seem to be hanging: for instance if I click on an extension icon in the toolbar, nothing will happen until the video finally start playing and then the extension menu will open up

When using Google Meet or Zoom for instance, I sometimes have to wait up to 10 seconds or so before Bluetooth Audio/Microphone starts after I've joined a meeting.

The issue is not specific to these platforms: I experience the same issue on other platforms such as Facebook, dailymotion, vimeo, zoom. On Facebook, since videos start muted, I can see the videos start playing right away, and then if I unmute sound the video stops, and start again with sound after 3 seconds or so

The issue does NOT manifest itself when playing an audio-only stream: ex Soundcloud or local radio stations audio stream

Things I've tried and didn't help - Troubleshoot mode - Different Firefox profile - Different Firefox install - Restarting my system

This feels like Firefox/macOS is waiting for Bluetooth to activate, or something like that. I have a feeling this only happens for certain types of video/audio codecs but I am not sure how to validate that (ex: no issues on soundcloud, petron audio-only posts).

The problem is entirely non-existent when I'm using sound output that is not Bluetooth.

This does not happen with other browsers otherwise I wouldn't be posting here :)

The lag is very problematic to me, because I do most of my work using the browser. When the keyboard starts lagging I can only enter text using copy/paste with mouse (which works fine). The only way to solve it is to restart Firefox (which can result in lost work).

The lag, when it starts, is 10 seconds or more for each keystroke. It occurs about once every few days.

Setting accessibility.force_disabled to 1 did NOT help.

This morning I saw that images were not downloading within my GMAIL messages. Believing that something was wrong with my connection, I decided to give both my computers a restart. This concerns my Windows 10 64-Bit, on which I had both Edge and Firefox opened, both with multi-tabs. In Firefox I had my Google account open with other tabs. After shutting down both computers I left my apartment. The Windows 10 restarted on its own; but both browsers lost their tabs even though I set each to reopen the previous session. With Edge and function keys I was able to restore my previous session; but not with Firefox. about:sessionrestore was not available. The Profile folder did not show a backup for these lost tabs. I hate hunting for them in History because I am working on multiple projects and don't have time for this wasteful activity, which is why I set Startup to Open Previous Windows And Tabs. What option did I miss?

Now, we have more wasted time. I reopened as many tabs as I remembered opened during the session I could not restore. Now, the only tabs that reopened since are the ones I opened that have posts about restoring sessions. The tabs I reopened are lost even though I checked off Open Previous Windows And Tabs. This browser is performing worse as of today for some reason I am not aware. What changed? From what I see here, there was no MS Windows update that might have occurred when I shut down and lost the tabs. Could I have disrupted the tabs by using the right hand, top corner "X" to shut out of Firefox?

This is getting more and more whacked up! It seems that every time I reopen a tab within the Library, it opens it in the same tab, overlaying the previous tab I opened.

Hello,

I noticed something strange on my account under my password manager and want to make sure it is not a security issue.

Under my Password Manager, I noticed that a majority of my saved passwords (unless used recently) all have the last "used" date as April 5, 2024. These are on accounts that I do not access frequently and they all have the same "used" date.

Why would this be the case?

Thank you so much, Brianna

Before Firefox used to keep private tabs 'open and available' till you closed the page out, for iphones, ipads, etc. Now all my private tabs are closing out every time I close the app. Before there used to be a section in settings that would allow you to turn this feature on/off, however it's not in settings anymore. I wanted to know if there is another way around this. I want to be able to keep private tabs open when I close out Firefox on my phone and ipad.Before I would have all my tabs available jut like regular browsing but now its cleared out evey time.

Hello! I have a serious problem. I lost access to my data because I changed my password, so my data is no longer synchronized. I reinstalled my Windows, and I forgot the old password I had on that Windows. As I reinstalled, I decided to change the password because I didn't remember it, but after that I found out that synchronization doesn't work. Please help me, I had very important bookmarks that were there. Thanks in advance!

Hey,

I constantly have unreadable fonts in Firefox for Mac. This only happens since I started using a new Mac (M2 Chip).

I know there are some "solutions" flagged but I cannot get it to work. My main issue is, the inspector it self has completely garbled fonts. So does the elements of the browser itself, for instance my favorites bar.

I know I am supposed to check my fonts, but I don't know how? I used the fonts application on my mac and let it validate the fonts. No issue there.

Only thing to resolve this issue is to reboot. And this is extremely frustrating since it means out of the blue my Firefox won't show fonts and I have to save all my work and reboot to be able to use it again.

I would highly appreciate a step by step solution on how to fix this. It seems to be a common problem so maybe there is a solutions that describes it better than the text I found here to inspect elements and check fonts.

Thanks in advance.

hopefully a basic question that can be answered

when I used to use edge, I would browse in incognito. sometimes I would accidentally open a link that would open in the normal browser, but I was able to simply exit without closing all my windows, including my incognito tabs

with firefox, when I'm browsing incognito, something similar would happen.

part of the problem is, that my main tabs are multiple windows, and when i choose to close them, it closes the incognito tabs as well

is there a way to prevent that?

FIRST PROBLEM (I have been unable to submit a help request from https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/new/mozilla-account/form)

Windows 10, fully updated with the latest firefox version. Email program is MS Outlook through my employer.
