After updating to Firefox 86.0 (64-bit), none of my bookmarks work. The properties area for each bookmark is entirely blank, with no URLs shown. How do I restore my bookmarks and why did their functionality disappear in the first place?

I am not able to figure out on how to open the respective add-ons User Interface.

  • I have installed some add-ons like 'HTTPS Everywhere' , 'Nord vpn' etc...
  • When I visit the add-ons tab in the menu section on the upper right section of Firefox, it does not show on how to run it or open it.
  • I have been searching this on the internet but couldn't find any information...

Hope the Firefox team will help, Thank you

I set process limit to 1. Firefox runs 5+. Pray tell what does setting the process limit do exactly? Also Firefox says it sets the process limit automatically to optimize system specs. I've installed FF on machines with specs ranging from low budget build to godbox yet it always defaults to 4 processes. Then runs more. Is it all BS? Do tell please? (Searched Support for these topics. Gave up after 10 pages. Appologies if they're redundant)

I sought without answer to see how to PREVENT restoring previous sessions, freezing my computer because FF did not clear previous sessions, internet access freezing when social media sites weren't cleared, as they used to be. And then, reading the solution on, how to access restoresession options, I come upon about:config and search browser.session I see the problem. Instead of setting options to clear previous history, FF now has uncountable options which - hide browsers I've deletes, like Bing - maintain restoring sessions up to 5, 10, 32 times, even though I've set the option to never - keep data I wanted deleted, in Top sites, in pocket, in other options - set Google as the default translator even though I've chosen not to use it I am seriously disappointed in Firefox and Mozilla. I have used it since I found it one- two ? decades ago because it WASN'T wired into the top-heavy, data-excessive, intrusive-spying behemoths of Google and Microsoft. Did Google buy you out, or something? I do notice that the wonderful creative-commons data options have been swallowed up by those icons of not-for-profit and community sharing, google-android, every for-profit phone companies (ATT, Verizon,etc.) How sad and ironic. I found my solution was, select 0 for many, many browser.?? options and deleting the history I found in various switches. Posting this to share my disillusion.

Since I started using firefox all my add ons get uninstalled for no reason from time to time. It's like the browser decides to wipe them all out and I have to reinstall them again, one by one. I tried creating an account and syncing, but the problem persists. And it happens on both my 2 computers.

Everything was fine till today. Smarkets website looks like crap and only this one. What's interesting, it looks all right when I untick allow pages to use their own fonts button. That's strange. Unfortunately, the rest of website do not look good. I cannot use Smarkets anymore as this is just unreadable. Please compare the same website open i FF and Chrome.

I am trying to use the dictation feature on word (onedrive.live.com document). Firefox does not list the microphone, the webpage says I need to click on the locked icon (next to the URL). The microphone is not listed, in addition there is not a way to whitelist sites in the privacy settings.

There is no way to get the microphone working for the dictation feature in word on microsoft office online.

Hi everyone,

After the 85.0.0 update and still now with 85.0.1 and 85.0.2 firefox crashes. It's usually happened with clicking a link that'll take action outside of firefox (not a url link but a download attachment link in gmail or a print link). I've also had it happen with placing links from the search bar to the bookmark bar, and just recently opening up the 'show all bookmarks' window.

It'll hang, i won't be able to click anything, and then it'll give me the 'close window' screen. It's never fully crashed and given me an error message. I start up firefox again, restore the session and everything is back to where it was.

I've tried refreshing. I've tried creating a new profile. I've tried uninstalling and downloading 85 direct from mozilla. Nothing seems to be working. I'm going to see how it does for a bit in safe mode, but all the add-ons I have I've had way before the 85 update and all of them are recommended by mozilla.

I'm all ears (eyes?) for solutions!

I do not want and never requested "automatic upgrades". I want them stopped and if possible the last several "upgrades" reversed. How can I get this accomplished. It's bad enough that "google" has it's fingers in everything as it is without "upgrades" I don't want and didn't ask for, and have done nothing to make things work any better. In fact it's gotten worse. If anyone knows how I can contact firefox directly it would be most appreciated.
