I give up. I simply am not finding what I need to find. Windows 10 instructions don't seem to help either (Yes, I am running Win10). If I have to do a screenshot, instead of verbal description, I'll just forget my curiosity. Thanks anyway.

Firefox needs to fix the fullscreen bookmarks window "feature" for Firefox for Mac. It sucks.

The bookmarks window opens in fullscreen--FULLSCREEN--and eliminates every option to do anything other than look at bookmarks. It does not minimize, it's just in that way… (read more)

The bookmarks window opens in fullscreen--FULLSCREEN--and eliminates every option to do anything other than look at bookmarks. It does not minimize, it's just in that way. The only way to get out of that nonsensical window is command+W. Why would Mozilla choose to display bookmarks in such a stupid, obnoxious way?

My incoming email will not show any pictures that come with it. Using Outlook. Been working for years now. I have to jump through a lot of hoops to see any graphics. Funny thing is that this only happens in Firefox. If I use Internet Explorer then the pictures show. Getting to be real annoying. Hep me, hep me.

While I am browsing on a site I find that Yahoo will suddenly pop up without having been requested to do so. It also happens when I go from one page of a given site to another. This happens on most sites and I am about to "ditch" Firefox, since it does not occur when I use Safari.

bold text I have WINDOWS Firewall on. I get the following messages when I attempt to reach www.shorpy.com

The connection has timed out

The server at www.shorpy.com is taking too long to respond.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

I have Mozilla sync'd between my (old) laptop and my phone, and it was a lovely pairing. Old laptop got stolen earlier today, and in setting up my new laptop, I forgot my old password and ended up resetting the password to Firefox Sync on the new computer. I'll hit 'sync now' and nothing happens, no favorites, no tabs, no recent session, nothing.

This computer is running the latest version of mint, and my old computer was running mint 13 I believe. It hasn't been updated in ages but was happily puttering along while I blissfully neglected to update the software to a newer version which may overwork that relic.

1) It takes a long time to star Firefox. 2) It takes a LONG time for pages to load. Internet connection is OK, and MS Edge works fine. But I really prefer Firefox!

I have the latest version of Firefox (46). It even takes a long time to change between open tabs. It just started behaving like this about 3 days ago (around April 29, 2016). I believe I downloaded the new version of Firefox around that time?

Please help. Thank you!
