Hi anyone.. Not long ago I've switched from Google Chrome to Firefox as my default browser and I'm so happy about that.. Still I don't know all the functions Firefox has and I need your help please.. What I'm trying to do is to find the way to see and use on my pc all collections I set up on the Firefox app I have on my mobile.. it's a very useful function and I use it very much on my mobile phone.. all pages I need to save for future reference are saved into a specific collection I created.. I have a collection for anything interest me, for my job and also for personal life.. The point is that I cannot find those collections on my pc.. where are they???? The sync is working well, if I just bookmark a web page on my pc I can suddenly see it on my mobile phone and it also works the way round.. but collections are visible on mobile only...I cannot find them on pc..can you tell me where they are please? Thank you for listening..I'll be very glad to get your advice Laura

From my research it looks this is supposed to work with Ubuntu as well? It is not working for me, is this possible?

Bookmark Location and Bookmark Duplicates

I've got way too many bookmarks collected over the decades stored in hundreds of cascading FF bookmark folders, so, if I need to use a bookmark that I have not used in a while, it's often impossible for me to remember the location, especially with acute CRS due to age and chemo.

You can find a bookmark using view/sidebar/bookmarks but, neither that, nor the bookmark's "properties" show the bookmark's location within firefox's bookmarks.

(It's hard to believe that mozilla can't understand the need to find a specific bookmark's location. There are several addons that meet the need, but I am reluctant to install any addon that I don't find essential.)

Searches for solutions to this need also reveal that finding duplicate bookmarks is an equally important need for many FF users.

So... trying to "think outside of the box" and experimenting, I found that when using the bookmarks sidebar search feature, the search results can be treated just like bookmarks within toolbars and bookmarks folders.

While its impossible to divine where the found bookmark is located, you can drag the found bookmark out of the search results to a location that works with your current memory rather than the location you can't remember. Doing so will remove it from the original location just as dragging it from one bookmark folder to another does.

The same is true for duplicate bookmarks. Duplicates show up in a bookmark search, and, you can delete a duplicate from the search results which removes the duplicate from FF bookmarks...

...obviously, it's wise to look at properties to confirm that the urls match.

Hope this approach is helpful, Beverly Howard

I'm new to the community. I have tried searching, but I can't find the answer. See my screen shot attachment for version and build details.

Web pages automatically refresh when I leave Fire Fox and come back. Let's say I'm trying to set up a log on for a new forum. The web site will send a confirmation code to mmt email. I go to that app to get the code. Then I come back to Fire Fox to enter the code. The page will automatically reload, and mess up the whole process.

How do I stop the auto reload?

If I have to use "about:config" then I have another issue. I can't open it. When I type that into my address bar nothing happens.

I'm loving forward to learning more about Fire Fox.

The font size in the toolbar is too small. I mean the text on the tops describing my open tabs, the bookmarks toolbar, etc.

I cannot find an actionable answer to how to increase or change the font size. I need a solution, but not written in a tech language. Is there one?
