I received the error message that Firefox could not open because it was already running, but this did not show on the task manager. I googled the issue and stumbled upon a solution where people had deleted their profile in order to solve it. So I did, and Firefox worked again, but all of my passwords, bookmarks and everything was lost. Is it possible to recover this?

I am using a Mac.

Mind you, I am super bad at technicalities and would probably need explanations as if I am five years old.

With the new version 89 the row height for bookmarks is way too big and now I am scrolling all over the place. I had them all perfectly spaced to show all in my full screen without scrolling. Is there an adjustment where I can go back to the previous narrower height?

Cannot save all open tabs. you can see in the photo that the "Save" button is unavailable (gray color). Only "Cancel" works.

Please support possible saved 1000+ TABS

This causes there is a limit of 1000+ tabs (sleep tabs) cannot be saved.

When you right click on bookmark folder, it used to show third option from top - ADD FOLDER now it is REMOVE FOLDER. And by clicking on it, it will not even ask if i want to do that certainely.

My long term builded muscle memory, with fact that there is absolutely no additional visual difference between these options, makes me constantly deleting one valuable folder after another.

I am furious about this. Why would firefox devs change these options? It is absolutely unnecessary!

Btw yes i know that i can redo, if i unconviniently open bookmarks window. That does not solve initial problem.

The appearance of my bookmarks has recently changed, and I want to change it back. The individual bookmarks are spread out more, so now they take up more space on my screen and I need to scroll the list. I don't need the extra space, I find it annoying and not at all necessary. I have included images of how it looks now and (a doctored image, granted) approximately how it looked before. I've looked all over and I can't find anything on "Appearance of bookmarks".

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hello all. I have asked this once but didn't seem to get a decent answer. My firefox updated to a new version a while ago and since the update it won't save any of my passwords. I have tried to read through some of the details regarding fixes for this but it may as well be written in Chinese as I don't understand. Som,eone tell me how to get my Firefox browser to save passwords like it used to or I'll have to stop using it altogether.

The bookmark favicon is wrong and does not match the favicon on the tab. I have deleted and rebuilt favicons.sqlight. The bookmark in question is still wrong. There is no entry for the bookmark in favicons.sqlight. I've reinstalled Firefox, rebooted Windows, ... to no avail. I even tried using favicon.ico without success. The HTML page is correct.

The HTML is simple and the favicon shows on the tab correctly -

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="Bandwidth1.png">
<style>
img {
max-width:100%;
height:auto;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>
<h2>Network Bandwidth Usage - CS1</h2>
<img src="summary.png" alt="Summary">
<div style="float: left;">
<img src="day.png" alt="Days">
</div>
<div style="float: left;">
<img src="month.png" alt="Months"><br/>
<img src="top.png" alt="Top10">

I was having some trouble with Firefox and decided to uninstall and reinstall it. I selected it in MS Control Panel and clicked on uninstall. A Firefox window popped up and suggested that I try refreshing it instead. I selected that. The result was that a "Welcome to Firefox" webpage opened. Clicking on its link for Bookmarks showed that "Recent Bookmarks" and "Library" were both empty. How can I retrieve my Bookmarks?

Hi! I have been a Firefox user on PC/Windows for a long time, years, and had quite a lot of bookmarks. One day, while various FireFox updates were happening, I noticed something, I think it was a popup, saying something to the effect that all your bookmarks will be deleted. Huh!? Couldn't click on anything to stop the install. And after computer restarted, all the bookmarks were gone from FireFox, meaning when I go to the bookmarks button, nothing shows anymore. What happened? They are really gone or where to find a backup to get them back again? I don't recall ever backing them up on purpose, so if there was a backup, it would have been an automatic thing. Please give input. Thank you!
