I have noticed recently that every week or so my Firefox browser will randomly change my homepage directory to the landing page / search for MSN, which is baffling, since it is obtrusive and anti-Mozilla to me.

If y'all are sneaking it in for that sweet ad revenue, I understand, but I would donate to avoid this issue.

Otherwise Firefox / Thunderbird are awesome, and I appreciate all that you do!

Cheers, Elliot

I'm buying a new computer and I'm wondering is there a method/procedure that I can use to transfer the entire FF browser including settings, extensions, bookmarks, and passwords without having to reinstall all those items individually? I know I can save and import bookmarks but what about everything else? I look forward to anyone comments. Thanks

Hello,

I'm trying to sort bookmark folders by date. I followed some threads on-line, but its not saving. Am I missing something?

I'm going to Manage Bookmarks (see screenshot) i'm able to select a folder and click Views and it defaulted to 'unsorted' I select Sort by Added and the latest bookmarks in this area sort by latest on the TOP first. Perfect!

I exit out check bookmarks and they are still sorted in the reverse... meaning latest bookmark is still at the bottom and my very first bookmark in this folder is at the top.

Maybe its not designed this way? if so I don't see the reason to go under Managed Bookmarks and sort by anything if its not going to save that way.

Moral of the story trying to sort by date added in any folder not name (which is only thing I see when right clicking on any folder). I want latest saved bookmarks sorted from TOP down not latest's starting at the bottom.

Thanks

I have Firefox version 97.0.2 (64 bit) for Windows. Lately, every time I start up the browser, it's trying to install an update. I haven't had this problem before with Firefox (and I've been using it for several years now). Is there something I need to do to stop this?
