Will a 'Firefox refresh' delete my personalised link folders which I have created & added to my toolbar over the years?

I have, over the years, created little blue folders on my toolbar which are filled with URL links that I need to revisit from time to time. I have always done it this way. I believe they are not the same as 'bookmarks', but I am not sure. You will see from the attached photo that the folders are named things like 'Apple' / 'MP3 Blogs' / 'Audio Production' / 'MusicBlogs' / 'Art' etc.

I use a MacBook Pro running OS 10.6.8 (admittedly a bit out of date now). Recently Mozilla Firefox (v 38.0.5) has been constantly crashing or 'hanging', not streaming video properly and generally malfunctioning. I came across 'Refresh Firefox' as a way of speeding things up, but I am very concerned that it could delete all of my URL link folders. Is there a risk that this will happen?

Thanks

Hello,

I am running the newest update for firefox (Version 38.0.1) on Mac OS Version 10.6.8. When I open a new window in firefox, the close, maximize, and minimize buttons are located in the top left corner, as usual. However, if I enter fullscreen mode on a video, and then exit, the buttons are not there. They are not simply invisible - clicking in their usual location has no effect.

Thanks, ReOsIr

I use FlashPlayer to watch videos on YouTube. To get rid of the notification "Press Esc To Exit Full Screen Mode," I went to about:config and changed the value of "full-screen-api.approval-required" to false. It worked until I restarted Firefox and now it doesn't.

As a matter of fact, every time I restart Firefox, it does a lot of things against my Preferences, too. It signs me out of YouTube and every other site even though I have the box checked to NOT do that.

Any real answers or am I deleting Firefox permanently and going back to Safari?

I work on a MacBookPro and firefox updated itself, I did not choose to do this. Now I can no longer see the info bar at the top of the screen that shows battery life, clock, etc. I can not cause the Dock at the bottom of the screen to spring up to select other programs unless i click off Firefox onto the desktop.

I also can't see my drop down menu's and my saved bookmarks.

This is making Firefox useless for me. After a week I am ready to switch to another browser, can someone from Firefox please respond with an official response how to return this to a more useful state?

Two different websites, even google map cannot find my location but geo position is enabled and permissions are given. Google maps says your location could not be determined. Everything works fine on Chrome. This started a few days ago, before that everything was working fine.
