I have been using Firefox for ages now, and collected a rather large number of bookmarks (>15,000) As far as I know such a number poses some issues, for instance I tried several times to use Sync but was never able to use it.

Since I am using two different machines, I tend to save my bookmarks only on the main one. When I am working on the laptop I never save bookmarks but I message them to myself (never been able to save them on my main machine, sigh) and every once in a while I "restore" bookmarks from the backup set of the main machine on the laptop. It always takes a while and oftentimes it feels like the process hangs, but so far I managed.

Today I started wondering again if there's a less frustrating and more efficient way to handle this. The question I started asking myself was: could I use the same FF profile from the laptop & the main machine? Say by saving it in the cloud?

Thanks for any hint or suggestion!

Hello,

 When receiving a message, Thunderbird considers a line containing "--" to be a signature start mark and automatically removes all following lines (instead of quoting it) when editing the reply. 

I want to disable this behavior. (The content of my (reply) message is my responsibility, I dislike automation on my authoring. ;-) )

So, how to configure this?

Regards.

I had a system update couple of days ago and since then, the firefox browser suddenly hangs or partially blacks out in certain areas suddenly. It sometimes corrupts the text/data on the toolbars, add-ons, etc.

It happens randomly. When I restart the system it works fine and then it happens again at random instance.

Not sure what is causing this. But this only began since Thursday.

Not sure what to do.

Starting today, on Firefox 87.0 for Linux, any link that I had visited in the past is showing up as visited in the current session. I am in the process of updating thousands of listings on Ebay and the link color helps me keep track of where I am in the list each day, especially since I have had to start back from the beginning of the list 3 times. I do not want to clear my history as I keep going back to it to reference old pages. Is there a setting to clear the links visited color without clearing the history? Or is this a bug?

Firefox is in version 87 also fully updated in both OS in both machines. When I try to download anything whatever the size of the file is I see the little that shows downloading has started and then it vanishes and shows that the download has failed. I've already tried cleaning the cache, the history and the downloads history but nothing worked in any of my systems. Can anyone please help?

When using screen sharing, FF (up to the latest release 88) offers to share each of the open applications or the full screen. What's missing is to share just one of 3 monitors, if that's what one is using. Chrome has that option, but FF doesn't. Is that on the roadmap to be added? Or is there a plugin or hidden setting that would allow me to do that already?

I thought perhaps the cat had hit some keyboard shortcut (goodness it would be nice to be able to disable those!) and removed "Bookmark This Page" from the Bookmarks pull-down menu, but based on the number of people asking the same question, I now suspect that the latest Firefox update somehow removed it. I have seen MANY people asking about this, invariably answered with how to work around it being missing by using a tiny blob of an icon (which tiny meaningless blob among many, my not-so-young eyes are not certain - apparently it looks like a star). WE WANT IT BACK. Please put "Bookmark This Page" back where it belongs - in the pulldown menu called "Bookmarks". Or tell us how to put it there ourselves. Leave it in the teeny blob menu also if you like - maybe there's someone out there who actually likes it there. But please, for the love of usability, put that entry back on the list of things you can do from the Bookmarks pull-down menu! Not all of your users are 20-somethings with perfect eyesight!
