Hello, I see that when adding a new bookmark, Firefox now remembers the last used location and sets it by default. I would prefer to keep the previous behaviour of defaulting to "Other bookmarks". Is there a way to disable it please?

Thank you

Firefox is crashing almost immediately after loading a page. Sometimes it crashes while loading the page, sometimes I can scroll down or click a link, and then it crashes. Biggest issues are on Reddit. I'm able to browse the Firefox support pages with minimal issues (although it has crashed once or twice).

Crash happens in Safe Mode. (I'm in safe mode right now and it just crashed) I did a FULL clean install about a week ago. (actually did it twice just to be sure)

Not sure what info you need in order to help, but here is some of the crash report from the latest one today.

I was googling fine, went to eat, and when I came back this security alert appeared when tried to google something, and it also appears if I try to enter Youtube, like if Google sites now are a security risk for Firefox?

Edge opens them, Chrome opens them, WTF?? I just went to eat, didn't update nothing, didn't add a cookie, didn't restart the computer, I didn't even close the browser, I JUST WENT TO EAT. This is for those that say "restart", "clean your cookies", "update Firefox", I've already tried the obvious, what the hell happened? Did Firefox get in a fight with Google or what?

Do developers read these topics or we're just "helping each other"? Well, thanks for any info on the matter...

I was trying to switch between channels by changing the value in prefs.js

I guess some of the paths are not fully supported. Like from nightly into release it is downloading and restarting the browser but update fails and starts all over again leading to a vicious infinite loop.

Greetings all, Is there a way to change the margins of viewed markdown files by going into, for example, about:config or another way? Would this or some other commands allow me to change the left and right margins?

I would like to change (widen primarily) the margins of markdown files when I view them on my Firefox browser. I use a lot of Markdown, for writing, scientific work (RMarkdown), and note-taking. I am currently using a Markdown text editor (Abricotine, not that this should matter) that simply calls up Firefox and sends the text/markdown to the screen. However, when I view the .md files the margins seem very small to me.

Cheers,

Hi. It's really annoying now. How can I disable autosaving "top sites"? I randomly visit 5 websites (FOR THE FIRST TIME) and 3 of them already shows up in my top sites. How the hell this stupid calculating works when I visit a website for the first time and firefox already thinks that it is a top site?! What the hell... Everyday I spend 20 minutes of deleting/unpinning those sites because I don't give a sh*t about them. And there's no option to turn it off. You can turn off the whole top site section but that's not what I want. I just want to disable autosaving or autopinning random sites. Where and how can I do it?! If it isn't possible then I'm done with Firefox.

After the 85 update on Linux, Facebook and Instagram videos started playing choppy (low FPS), YouTube videos are fine though. They work okay on the Brave browser. I tried refreshing Firefox but it didn't help, so it's not from my add-ons.

hey i have firefox 8.5 - and a problem since v8.4 and present. Web pages load very slowly - the whole browser is very slow, the load on the frame RAM and CPU is reaching its zenith with the windows open. In one word the browser has become useless. Anticipating responses - 1. In safe mode - browser speeds up slightly, but websites still have lags and take a long time to load. 2. I reinstalled firefox - the errors continued. 3. I turned on firefox without logging in and with add-ons disabled - the browser worked with the errors described above. 4. I turned on firefox and logged into the profile, but turned off the add-ons - firefox - still has errors; I turned on a generation of additions (recommended) - firefox still has bugs. 5. My antivirus is not blacklisted by firefox - and I have no worms etc. 6. Standard or changed settings - firefox doesn't work well. Any suggestions or advice? Websites like FB, YT and others are simply unloadable with such lags. thanks.

Why do I keep receiving an "Error 15 Access Denied" for this website?

Id didn't happen in the past, but began sometime during 84.02 and has continued in 85.0.

Here's what the message page says:

When I visit quora.com on Firefox, I get broken images. This doesn't happen with Edge or Chrome, and of course not on my other devices (so not a network/firewall issue). It seems to be only on Quora so far.

I tried deleting cache, refreshing the browser, creating a new account, running without add-ons or plugins, without success. Switching off the enhanced tracking protection doesn't help either. I am running out of options...

The only thing I can think off, is that the browser was installed with admin rights that I do not have anymore, although it still updates without errors.

Can anyone help?
