hello, in the previous versions of Firefox, it was possible to send an article just by clicking on the three small dots in the address bar, I don't find this possibility to send an article and its url to someone by email, almost with a single click. Is there another way to access this feature that was very interesting? thanks !

I run FF on both a Windows machine and a MacBook Pro. On the MBP the browser does not save my tabs, despite "restore previous session" being selected. I do not have this problem on the Windows machine.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the browser but it has not made a difference.

I'm running the latest version of the browser and the OS is Big Sur.

Before several updates in the last year when you added a bookmark, you could choose what folder you wanted to add the bookmark.

Now when you add a bookmark it places the tab in the last bookmark selected. Once this is done then you have to select the bookmark and do a edit. At this point you can choose where you would like to store the book mark.

Is this a bug or was this intentional on the part of Mozilla? I find this is an unnecessary step and very annoying.

I guess I didn't make myself clear about book marks.

When I click on Bookmarks the following is listed: Show Bookmarks Bookmark Current Tab Bookmark All Tabs Other Bookmark Then my list of bookmarks

When I bookmark a tab, I am not given a choice as to where I wish to put the bookmark. The tab is placed in whatever previous bookmark folder last saved. I then click on bookmarks again and then there is "edit bookmark". At this time when I do the edit I can choose where to place the bookmark. I understand how to edit a book mark.

The problem is you CAN NOT choose where to place the bookmark when you first bookmark a tab. You have to return to the bookmark and do an edit. Before several updates you could choose where to place the bookmark and not have to come back and do an edit to get the bookmark in the desired folder.

My original question was is this a bug or was this method intentional leaving out being able to choose without have to do an edit after the fact?

By the way there is NO blue start showing when I do an edit. It may be because I am using a Mac.

For about a week now, I have been having issues using netflix and youtube with firefox. I have tried answers provided in other questions, such as emptying the cache and clearing cookies - which works! But only until I leave the page or change what I am watching. Netflix is especially frustrating as it requires me to go to netflix.com/clearcookies every time I use it - which means I also have to re-log in.

I have no idea why this is happening and am getting increasingly frustrated. The problem appears in safe-mode (troubleshooting mode) and I cannot find a permanent solution. Any help would be appreciated!

Suddenly pages aren't loading correctly. I can't see all the necessary buttons and information to use pages.

Also, keep getting javascript errors, but javascript is enabled.

Yes, have quit and restarted, cleared cookies cache etc, started in safe mode, disabled extensions, updated, downloaded new firefox and replaced old... No idea what happened in the past day or two.

Any ideas? Thanks

-- Okay, seems noscript is part, or all of the problem, so have disabled that. Will see if continues.

In the old firefox, I had the opportunity to share websites and f. e. send them from my laptop to my stationary computer. I think there were three dots ... next to the url. But that is gone. I used that a lot for websites that I needed to print out (my laptop isn't connected to the printer's vpn).

What now? I don't think I can use pocket for that, since that saves all the websites, I just need to send them once.

For starters, I want to type my search in the larger, lower search bar, but more often than not, what I'm typing shows up in the smaller search bar that is higher up on the page and not on the bar where I'm typing. That is annoying.

But even more annoying: whenever I start to type what I want to look for, a drop-down menu appears with lots of suggestions for me, and those suggestions hide the lower search bar. As soon as I type one letter, the drop-down menu appears with lots of guesses about what I want. I don't want suggestions cluttering up my page ~~ I just want to type without all of that clutter. I'd leave an added image, but it won't let me take a screen shot of what I'm talking about.

Is there any way for me to disable the drop-down menu with suggestions? I HATE IT! Just let me type what I want to find!

Firefox 89.0 recently installed itself. First of all, my option to open all tabs when restarting is not on. I reloaded all tabs from History. The tabs started opening on the bottom of the screen. Why???

Now I have only one tab visible. I can only get to one tab. I feel like I'm back in the days of Netscape Navigator. How do I get the old look back?

I've been using Firefox with Virgin Media's TV Go https://virgintvgo.virginmedia.com/en.html for quite a while without a problem. After the latest update I got the message to update the browser to the latest version and restart. I've tried talking to Virgin about it but been given the runaround by them - surprise. I've tried other browsers, Safari, Chrome, but the quality of the stream is poor compared to what I was getting with Firefox. Has anyone got any ideas? Any hopes?

Thanks

Hey guys, just wondering if there's a toolbar workflow similar to Chrome and Edge where we can jump between profiles. I believe there is `about:profiles` though that requires a bookmark and a few additional clicks to jump between profiles.

Perhaps the profile icon on the toolbar can have an item that shows all available profiles?

How can I restore the old style of highlighting text--grey background behind black text? It's being highlighted, but I can't see it. Happening with Firefox and Thunderbird.

This happened when I more-or-less simultaneously updated to macOS Mojave (10.14.6}, Firefox 89, and is also happening with Thunderbird (but I can't tie it to any specific update).

Is this an issue with Firefox and Thunderbird, or with Mojave?
