I inadvertently created a duplicate of my Bookmarks Menu, the folder of which now resides at the bottom of my Bookmarks toolbar. I sometimes accidentally open it when the original is already open, and that creates confusion. I'd like to simply delete the duplicate folder -- is there any way to do that?

HI When I opened Firefox this AM there was a an alert message in a red box saying basically that Firefox could not access my bookmarks. I tried to restore an old backup but although the dates were there there was no data.

I tried importing my bookmarks from Safari with no success. I did enable full disk access to Firefox prior to attempting the import to no avail.

I did export my Safari bookmarks to my desktop but have had no luck importing them into Firefox...

Help would be much appreciated... I do run Malwarebytes in Firefox and have for years.

Hi, I am a web developer and use CSS Inspect a lot - hours usually, everyday usually. I have been using Chrome for this for a few years, and they changed the Inspector layout in a way that slowed my workflow down tremendously, so now I'm using Firefox more for that. I have a few questions...

  1. In the Computed tab of Inspector, is it possible for the field / value pairs to collapse into one line? In Chrome - (first time you've heard a sentence start like that, I'm sure) - if I resized the sections, at a certain point they would do this. That way I can see twice as much, and all that space isn't wasted after the attribute. Is this possible here? I can tweak anything I need to - just looking for where to go.

Attached is the way it looks now, and a little excerpt mockup I made showing what I am hoping to achieve.

  1. Secondly, is it possible to have the Layout and Computed tab consolidated into one tab? In Chrome, I used to love seeing the box model directly above the computed styles.

Thanks, Ben

FireFox and eBay

I am using the latest version of Firefox on a brand new IMac running 10.15.7. Since I got this new computer Firefox has been incredibly slow when accessing eBay. It can take forever to scroll through my image file to find an image to load on an eBay listing. When I try to scroll through the image file most of the time Firefox will freeze every 40-60 images and will not respond to the cursor movement for anywhere from 30 seconds to several minutes at which point it comes to life for a few seconds and then freezes again. I can do most other things on eBay and other websites except loading images.

There is a second problem with Firefox. I frequently get the following error from eBay "https://www.ebay.com/n/error?statuscode=500. The problem is that this appears to be a Firefox issue. eBay directs me to go to home page and when I then try to reload the offending page I get the same error message over and over again, however if I close Firefox and re-start Firefox I can get to the page that generated the error message. I get the same problem with CanadaPost. Firefox gives me an error message telling me that the page doesn't exist. I closed Firefox and reload CanadaPost website and then I can get to the page.

This happens multiple times a day and only with Firefox. Other websites and other browsers don't have this problem.

I have tried to clear my cache from my computer multiple times by using the Mozilla instructions and the 670 cache is still there. It is not clearing. I feel that I should delete Mozilla and reinstall. Will this work or is there a better way to clear cache other than using the Mozilla worthless instructions that do not work? Can some one help me with this? Contacting Mozilla is impossible thus far. I cannot even add the images from my desktop.

Hi There, I'm on the firefox beta channel presently v82.0 using web browser on mac v10.15.7 and using this website "https://www.roadstercycle.com" which uses a paypal cart for shopping. Seems every time i add something to the cart it makes a "new" cart so i can never get more than one item in it. I have no problems with Safari - so its something to do with Firefox as opposed to the website (methinks.) I restarted firefox in "safe mode" and the problem still persists. I disabled "enhanced tracking protection" as well to noavail.

Like with most things its probably not a bug but a feature but I'd be curious to get your take on it.

Thanks, Stephen

Q: Does anyone know if Firefox has maybe re-instated pinch zoom functionality for Mac users?

Or if there is a decent work around available yet?

And if not, anyone have a good answer as to why Firefox overlooked it in their last major update? Seems rather shortsighted to me. Not being able to pinch zoom on my mac trackpad is highly frustrating. It's pretty much a deal breaker, making me want to migrate back to Chrome or elsewhere. Which is sad, because I thought I'd finally escaped Google for browsing.
