Some time back, I had made a bookmark for a list of books. I cannot find it now on my list of bookmarks. (I have MANY bookmarks.) I'd like to search using the search term "book*.*" How would I do this? If this not a feasible way to find my lost bookmark, is there another way that might work?

Thank you for reading and for any suggestions.

I am lost so request some expert help!!

I have had a few problems on my win 10 pro 64bit pc where my better half had hsd quite a few win profile logon errors. These hsve bern fixed via regedit until recently where nothing in the hive profile fixes it. (Hardware is fine and no malware just in case you wonder!) As a shortcut I have created a new logon to get the user up and running. Of course Firefox now does not have the old logon's profile available to the 'new' Windows user account.

So I have followed the instructions at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1065938 to copy over the firefox profile files to the created user's profile folder.

But this has not worked. No history, passwords, settings etc available to the new windows account, though it looks like the files have been copied however confusingly repeating exercise does not warn about file overwriting!

How can the profile be updated to get all the passwords and settings into the new account?

Notes: Windows and FF up to date. My personal account is still fine it's just the other user account that is the problem. Cannot logon to the other 'old' account to use FF built in profile management but it should be ok in the newly created acount.

Firefox crashing frequently and unexpectedly. I can't discern any pattern to when it happens. I don't know what's triggering it.

I've tried refreshing it, reinstalling it, running under a newly created profile, running under safe mode. The crashing continues despite all of these things.

Hi, I am currently having to teach lessons remotely, I am using firebox browser 84.0 on a windows 10 machine. So far it has been working well but today when I went to play a youtube video from a google slide whilst in a google meet delivering a lesson the audio from the video would not play. I have been told this can be fixed by using google chrome, however, this is not an agreeable solution as I'm sure you can understand. I am wondering what the fix could be in order to allow people viewing my presentation in google meets to hear the audio of the video inserted into the presentation. Thanks

Hi all,

I have a 2019 Mac Book Pro Big Sur and this is where I am having trouble. I recently went on a trip to Mexico and while I was there I noticed YouTube would not work on Firefox, but no problem on safari. I thought it was just the change in location that was causing the problem. Now I am back in the states, but I am still having the same problem. I can open YouTube, I can click on a video, and the video loads. What happens is that at the bottom left of the video, it begins to glitch and I cannot hear anything. The video is playing but there is no sound coming from it. I know it is not a problem with my laptop, because I am not having this problem while on safari. I tried restarting and updating Firefox but no solution. Then under Performance settings, I unchecked using the recommended settings and the hardware acceleration. If we can please find a solution that would be awesome, thank you!

When clicking on "show all bookmarks" it takes you to the bookmark library where you can see all our bookmarks.

1. The layout is shoddy, makes finding bookmarks very difficult. 2. The scrolling speed is way too fast, I try to scroll up or down and it goes all the way to the top or bottom.

Please fix.
