When I search using Firefox I keep getting a google pop-up which requires me to agree to google's terms and if I refuse I cannot proceed with my search. If i try to open a new search the google pop-up returns but with out the request to agree to google terms. Firefox is my default search engine. How can I stop this very annoying google pop-up?

Is there any way or an add-on that will allow me to add a simple button to my toolbar that with ONE CLICK triggers the "Show All Bookmarks" command which will open the separate Library window with the list of my bookmarks?

Firefox used to have a Bookmarks button for over a decade since about version 2.7 that disappeared several versions ago and I still find myself missing it. I do no not want to click more than once, dig through some menu or drop down to open it. I don't want to use the keyboard either. I know Firefox has a Library button, but it makes you navigate menus too.

I want a simple ONE CLICK solution.

How is this still a thing? Chrome can open any PDF file correctly. Any PDF file I open in Firefox shows the text as blank spaces, and I get the message "This pdf document might not be displayed correctly". Why? Why do I, with Firefox, need a 3rd party PDF reader? I shouldn't have to. Even Microsoft Edge gets this right.

Back to Chrome, I guess...

When I select a text on a webpage and right click, there are some options including add-on related ones (e.g. translate this text). However, when I select a text in the address bar my add-on options doesn't appear. Is it possible to use my add-ons on address bar selections? Or is it that my add-ons lack this feature?

My problem is that I must have accidentally dragged a folder from bookmarks to the bookmarks menu bar. It can't be deleted (option grayed out), can't view properties (grayed out) and even when I attempt to to restore bookmarks from an earlier date it does not correct the issue.

I have restarted the computer.

I have restored bookmarks after deleting them all.

I have attempted to backup bookmarks (before trying to remove them) and no matter what that folder won't budge from the right side of my bookmark menu. I can make it disappear by turning off bookmark menu but that's not useful to me. (Did you know that when you back up bookmarks - firefox puts them into a json extension! Try to restore that file - it's NOT even an option! Rather the options are import from this browser or that one - that's another issue all together so let's set it aside for another time.)

I am totally frustrated because I am almost 100% certain that this done by me in my speedy way, trying to drag a bookmark to the folder rather than hitting the star and putting it in the appropriate folder.

The only thing I haven't done is uninstall this firefox and reinstall it. I am a bit scared to do that. I have been a firefox user early on. How do I save these bookmarks without creating the same issue again? I don't want to go through the entire ordeal only to find out something is corrupted in my profile. What then.

Ideas would be help me a great deal. Please be patient. I am used to doing things on my own but I can follow directions. The only problem I have is that pesky file that won't be dragged, or deleted, or moved in any fashion. Is there a bookmark cloud on mozilla where I can just reinstall my bookmarks, passwords and add-ons without a lot of hassle? I sincerely have done all I know how to do.

Thanks for your help.

All was good until sometime today. FF 84.0.2 W10 up to date. Previously, when browsing FB marketplace, i could send a message about an item for sale. That send message button is now greyed out. The messenger button on the top right of my screen used to open a dropdown/popup that gave me a summary of my messages. That no longer works. I have been thru all kinds of settings randomly on FF and FB to try and correct the issue but i cannot figure out what is going on. I have tried turning Ublock on and off but that has not helped either. The only access i now have to messenger is to open it separately. I have not changed any FB settings. I did not change any FF settings myself other than trying to find out what could be doing this and exploring ublock for possibilities as that seemed the most likely culprit. Can anyone shed some light on what the issue is.

2 weeks into my new MAC mini (my first MAC ever so I'm still learning!)...and Firefox worked perfectly until today. Now it freezes on the initial screen every time I run it. The only time I solved it was rebooting the machine...which worked...once. It locked up the very next time. Reloading Firefox doesn't fix it. Just a reboot.

Most of the answers I saw said Version 84.0.2 was the fix for that...but that's what I'm running. Any further suggestions? With my rookie status on the MAC. it could well be operator error. Thanks everyone!

Hi, I'm trying to recover an old session with 2k+ tabs, but I only have two recovery files (from today) and one previous.jsonlz4 from a couple of days ago.

Is there anyway to restore from before then, or is the session (and the tabs) completely lost?

Thank you
