Hi

Very annoying, cleaning all my bookmarks on my main computer, next morning I got a clutter of all bookmarks. Copy of bookmarks as well of folders.

Only way to solve it is to make new sync ID, or?

Often I have multiple important tabs open which are difficult to rediscover. I have the option enabled for Firefox to remember my tabs before closing. However, for example sometimes when a link gets opened from an external application (by accident), all my tabs get lost. Can I restore the session from just before it happened?

(I asked the same thing last year but got no replies and I'm still having this issue today, I tried to be as descriptive as possible but maybe it was too much text to read. I apologize)

So, I was trying to head to Bing for reasons I will not disclose due to embarrassment. So I went to open it from google and was given the Error:

 ''''''''The page isn’t redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.''''''''

So I cleared cookies and site data, nothing still got the error. I tried checking my PC for malware as stupid as it sounds, I just didn't wanna be asked to do it. Spic and Span. I even checked my protection settings which FOR SOME REASON turned themselves back on. I turned those off and still, no dice.

Any help would be appreciated

I noticed on my iphone the VPN will not stay in the on position. I have to turn it on. But my biggest problem is on my computer where it is imposible to keep it on for more than a second or 2. It just reverts to the off position immedietely after turning it on. I think I will have to cancel as this offers absolutely no protection to my devices.

Some websites like to hijack your keyboard shortcuts. (For example in forums, ⌘-C, ⌘-V, ⌘-K, ⌘-L)

In Firefox, you can hold ⌘+Shift while clicking a link to open it in a new background tab. I recently encountered a website (Duckduckgo) which hijacks this as well.

Is there a way to block website from redirecting your keyboard shortcuts. It's really intrusive and I hate it.

Thanks.

Hi friends,

I am receiving an error that firefox is out of disk space.

"firefox is running out of space"

Despite following the instructions the error still appears. I also clicked the "Got it" button in hopes that this would make the error go away, but it keeps coming back. My system has over 20gb free and I really can't see why this error is occuring.

Does anyone have any advice? (besides switching browsers)

Thanks.

Is it possible to view a list of all the things that were printed within the Firefox browser? I'm not interested in browsing history-- I'm specifically after an entire list of things that were printed using a printer within Firefox. I tried looking for threads asking the same question, but it seems like everything is focused around the normal browsing history. The system is MacOS Big Sur Version 11.2.1.

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?

An Evernote contact spent an hour with me and took over my computer with my permission. She could not fix the problem. She said that I would have to create another Firefox Profile. The one I have is broken or corrupted. Here's a note from our session:

Here are the steps to create a new Firefox profile, if you would like to give that a try:

1) Open Firefox profiles page (copy and paste about:profiles to the URL address bar). 2) Find a profile with a label "This is the profile in use and it cannot be deleted" and remember it. 3) Create new profile with any name and location by default. 4) Set new profile as default profile: the image that evidently can't be copied and pasted here states: "Profile: TEST NEW PROFILE, Default Profile yes" 5) Restart Firefox. 6) Install Evernote Clipper 7) Click on Web Clipper icon and check if Clipper menu opens and article is clipped

If this procedure helps, the main reason is a corrupted initial Firefox profile (where the Clipper issue happens.) If this is the case, I recommend using the new profile you just created.

To return to the initial profile, set as default the profile from the step 2 and restart Firefox.

For more information about Firefox Profile Manager, click here.

If this workaround doesn't resolve the issue, please contact Firefox support. I'm afraid I don't have more information about the Firefox profile setup on your Mac.

I did not try that. Thought I'd go to the Firefox experts first!

I was very glad with SSB and use it a lot in my workflow but suddenly it stop working in the 86 version update. Now I know that it is no more supported and I started a dangerous practice of installing 85 version and omit updates (in fact this is not too useful because I accidentally update my firefox two times and have to manually reinstall the 85 version). I now this was an experiment but is a shame they stop supporting this kind of progress. My question is, is there an alternative to SSB currently implemented? Which is the closer form of such experience that can I get from command line? I mean: features like new window, no toolbars, independent (no open links in the tabs of previously opened window), could it be resources independence too? Thanks you beforehand.
