Greetings,

Today, I went to access my Bookmarks, & found them "Empty", other wise "Missing"!

I found the "How to recover missing Bookmarks" topics, & that did bring back,what I consider to be My "Permanent Books", bu the section called "Other Bookmarks" will not come back, no matter how many times I go through the "Restore Bookmarks".

I Absolutely need that section to be restored, for I had many files in that section that I updated daily, that I planned to move to the "Bookmarks Section".

How can I get get this section restored?

I use Firefox as my default browser, and I am an enrolled online student. I have an external logitech camera that works fine on Chrome and Safari (I'm on Mac) but Firefox requires a complete close and reopen after a few hours. It stops accessing the video camera accurately, although the indicator light on the camera still comes on.

This happens regardless of the platform (i.e. Google Meet, Zoom, chat sites).

Does anyone know what's going on? Or what settings can be tweaked? A computer running windows ten is having the same issue.

At least once a session it occurs, that the keyboard of my Acer Laptop gets out of work: No flesh, no writing. At the same time the symbol of a blocked keyboard occurs on the screen. Sometimes it changes to the opposite, sonetimes not. To repair it, I have to close the firefox site or turn off the computer. All work is usually lost.

Hello everyone! thank you for your assistance and expertise ahead of time as any help is heavily appreciated.

I've been trying to find a way to disabled downloading in Firefox all together. The reason for this is per my organization's requests. As they do not want users downloading anything what so ever.

I've found extensions that can do this, however since I'm tweaking a profile in which is shared amongst all users. Its not the best solution since I have to manually check the add-ons on every time I make a new user profile.

Is there by any chance a means for me to disable downloading as a whole within either userChrome.css or about:config?

Any help again is greatly appreciated.

How do I edit non address autofill data? When I autofill a form, my 1st name comes up correct but last name is all lower case, when I clear the field the Capitalized version is shown. Next time I use the autofill again the small case version appears. A similar thing happens with email address. An old email address (from a prior account) is displayed, but I cannot find any way to get rid of the old email address nor correct it. Everywhere I look on all your instructions, I cannot find any discussion/instructions on how to change Non Address Autofill data. Pleas help as I am getting tired of having to constantly manually change these fileds every time I use autofill. THANKS!!!

Firefox 86 has introduced a new print preview panel which I like. What I don't like though is that the unit for print margins has changed from millimeter to inch (see screenshot, in German). In previous versions, it was possible to set the unit in the prefs by changing "print.printer_PostScript/default.print_paper_size_unit". Value 0 meant imperial units, value 1 meant metric units. This entry does no longer exist.

There is still the entry "print.printer_printername.print_paper_size_unit" for every printer that's installed. Those values are all set to 1 in my case but this doesn't seem to have any effect.

So how can I set the margins of printed pages in millimeters instead of inches?

Firefox can't scroll down or up on some web pages. You can only navigate them hitting Tab to select the elements.

This issue has been reported before, but archived without solution. See "why can't I scroll down on some websites?" (27 May 2018):

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1219374

This page seems to have a more particular behavior, may be it could help to pinpoint the problem: It does scroll up and down until you don't close the two pop up boxes, then you can't scroll it anymore (but you can still navigate the page using Tab). If you have an ad blocker that blocks the two pop up boxes, then you can't scroll the page at all. The same behavior happens on Google Chrome.

I am older and use the zoom function on many web pages. After this last update the Zoom function seems to be broken. I Zoom to 133% for a more comfortable read on a news site (Guardian)... go into the article and have to zoom again. Go back to the home page and it is fine until it finishes reloading and it snaps back to original size. Have to zoom again. None of these zoom setting remain consistantly. This has only become an issue since I restarted Firefox to install the last update.

per the subject you guys, can you point me to a resource where I can find out why FF uses so much mem? that's not needed. i already read everything on the web I could find. I understand that the multiple threads are for faster content loading, but that's irrelevant for me. I've manipulated it for quite a while, and I always see 5 threads boot when FF boots. can that be stripped down? if so, how? tx. see img.

I've always been able to post comments about columns on WaPo. Scrolling past the column brings up a part of the page that says "posting as username". The name is correct. Previously, I'd see a little circling "working" icon and then a box to enter my comment would open and I could also see comments that others have made. Now, nothing happens. I cleared my cache the other day, and the problem seems to be since then. Comments work fine in Chrome, but I like Firefox better. Ideas?

Build: Windows 10 Pro, Intel Core i5-10600, GTX 1070, 16GB RAM, MSI B460M-A Pro. OS and some software on an SSD, other stuff on two hard drives.

Problem: Replaced mobo, CPU, RAM, CPU fan and SSD a week ago, installed fresh OS. The day after that computer started resetting randomly while streaming or watching a video in Firefox after a period of from five minutes to two hours. Never happened while I was playing Monster Hunter World and Apex Legends and streaming them with Chrome open or closed. Win doesn't say anything about it after reboot, and I can't see a minidump in Windows folder.

Event log doesn't say much interesting, two events right after the reboot are always like that:

The previous system shutdown at 15:23:32 on ‎02.‎03.‎2021 was unexpected.

Audit events have been dropped by the transport. 0

The only other warnings in the log are like this: Catalog Database (1800,R,98) Catalog Database: The database format feature version 9180 (0x23dc) could not be used due to the current database format 1568.20.0, controlled by the parameter 0x410022D8 (8920 | JET_efvAllowHigherPersistedFormat).

Tried updating chipset & network adapter driver, graphics drivers, turning hardware acceleration in browsers on and off, removing add-ons from Firefox, reinstalling browsers. Checking temperatures with Open Hardware Monitor (all below 40 degrees Celsius), CPU load is very low. PSU is also a suspect, but this crash never happened when Firefox wasn't running.

I guess it was the update to Firefox v. 86.0 here on Ubuntu that made Firefox create an extra empty window beside the session I always (re)open, which contains a large amount of tabs. When I try to close the empty window Firefox gives a warning, that this will close my (many) tabs. That doesn't make much sense to me. And when another app, like Thunderbird, opens an URL, it is opened in the new empty window. I can add that I use some add-ons like Simple Tab Groups, Vertical Tabs Reloaded, AdBlock Plus and NoScript.

All of a sudden, Firefox appears frozen on launch: doesn't launch any web page, or any page, in face--preference, or any of the about: pages. Just blank page. Clicks are registered, but don't have any effect.

If I close the window, multiple firefox processes linger for a while, and then the crash window pops up.

So far, I've: deleted the ~/.mozilla directory; downloaded fresh version of both 86 and 87 developer editions; restarted with addons disabled; and various combinations thereof.

I'm on Linux Mint 64-bit, latest version.

Firefox is completely unusable for me now. And I think it started with my rebooting my PC (which I've done multiple times so far).

This looks suspiciously similar to https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/a5qru6/firefox_64_opens_blank_tab_and_crashes/ and https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1513855. They don't seem to have any solutions, though.

Any thoughts?
