Pocket disappeared from the "library" menu in FF 87. How to view my saved items?

Someone already reported it there: https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/mc8vyx/pocket_disappeared_from_the_library_dropdown/

There is currently no way to view websites saved to pocket. Only integration is that one button visible on address bar and I have no idea how to restore it after you remove it. I hate their clumsiness. This is second time they remove one thing and forget to add replacement/config in time. Previous case was something with bookmarks menu if I remember correctly, and they still did not add any option to right-click-menu.

So, I accidentally clicked a link that takes me to a site I have never logged into. Firefox prompts me with 3 userids. One is more or less a throwaway, but two are for sites I want to be secure.

I have disabled the form history in options. I have selected each item and tried either delete or shift-delete. None of these options work.

The site continues to present me with 3 userid options.

I hope this is not a major security threat since I am the only user on this computer and the site is one I have never visited, but it worries me nonetheless that I cannot remove the Firefox suggestions.

Bear with me there's a bit of a story.

One of the apps I most use is MightyText. It allows me to send texts from my desktop computer's web browser. When FireFox automatically updated to the newest version, something didn't work right and MightyText stopped being able to connect.

My workaround was to use System Restore to go back in time so to speak. But FireFox is pretty aggressive with their updates, and eventually that stopped being a work around.

I tried to install an older version of FireFox manually but I couldn't ever get my profile to work right.

So, I've landed somewhere where FireFox has updated to the latest version, AND MightyText works just fine.

But now the problem is I cannot use any of my add-ons. Actually, I can re-fresh FireFox, and start it without any add ons. I can add all my add ons and everything works great, but if I restart my computer, FireFox will not connect to the internet (the wheel just spins) until I refresh again and wipe out all the add-ons. After doing so, all my tabs are restored, all my saved passwords, etc--and I can add back the add-ons and they will work until FireFox Crashes or I restart the computer, but then FF won't connect to the internet and around and around we go.

What's up?

Hi so I noticed recently that Firefox would cause my PC to momentarily freeze when it's loading videos, usually ads on YouTube, but I saw this happening on Twitch and sometimes Twitter as well. This has never been a problem and just started at most just a month ago

I searched around and saw that those who had kind of a similar problem were able to solve it by setting media.av1.enabled to false, or by clearing their cache. I did both and the problem persists. I also tried disabling my anti-virus' active protection settings to no avail. Another solution I found was to create a fresh profile but I'd like to see if there's anything else I can try before doing that. Perhaps a reinstall?

The only Add-on I have left is BetterTTV, no ad blockers of any sort. tia

I have gone to this page; www.survivalnutrition.com several times on Firefox. To download the files I put my email address in the field, and the click on Submit. Then nothing happens. So, today I went to Opera and it gave me a new page to enter my email address, and then the download links appeared in Protonmail inside of Firefox. So, I solved today's problem. I used Firefox for years to put ads on Kijiji.ca, but now it can't be done. I get the same error message for my location, even tho it's always the same address. Kijiji help suggested I clear my cache, turn off my VPN and use a different browser if the first 2 don't work. So now, I have to use Opera or Brave and the problem goes away. I would surmise that your browser is deteriorating.

Per the attached, I've just read that users with Mozilla Support accounts must now log into Mozilla Support using their Firefox Accounts login. The article does not specify when the merge of the two products was complete (i.e. a specific date in 2020). While it may not seem consequential to provide the completion date once this date has passed, it would be very helpful in the interest of transparency if you would specify the date that the process was completed. Thank you in advance.

It would be much faster and more convenient.

Thank you for your time

My print preview is no longer available, and the new one is too small to see what's on the page. It's useless! Also, simplify page is gone (I understand "Reader View") is the work-around. Also, it's many extra clicks to get to my system print controls to print properly.

Solving the print preview too small would go a long way towards keeping Firefox usable. The other things could certainly use fixing, however.

Thanks in advance! L.

(I have restored the old functionality temporarily with print.tab_modal.enabled preference set to false. Thanks community for showing me to do so! See https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1322623 if you want to know how.  However, usually Firefox takes these options away soon.  )
