Hi. The message "For quick access, place your bookmarks here on the bookmarks toolbar. Manage bookmarks..." has appeared at the top of my Firefox window. I don't think it's been there for more than a couple of days, so it must have been added by a recent update. I already have my bookmarks available just fine, so is there a way to get rid of the message? Thanks!

Firefox has done some kind of update and has removed all my bookmarks, settings and all my passwords I had saved which were important and I don't know how to go back to the way it was. I have lost 5 years worth of stuff, including EVERYTHING I had saved that I needed for my studies. Someone please help! I'm not very tech savy, I did not click on anything for this to happen. My browser has done usual updates before and never had this issue. Please help!!!

(ProtonMail) How do I get a new page to load in the same page, not a new tab?

Hi; hope all is well in your world!

I have a ProtonMail account. (It works fine, I recommend it!) Had it for years, but have not used it much. Looking into VPN and proton offers one, so trying to find out more, and so am now exploring the proton site quite a bit.

I can log into ProtonMail itself very easily; I get directed to my ProtonMail inbox. Cool so far. But clicking on 'help' takes me to ProtonMail Support, in a new tab. Not so cool, because I'm now not logged in. If I hit the 'LOG IN' button at the top of that page, I can log in (again) very easily. But it takes me back to my ProtonMail inbox! Same problem if I try to log in to the Protonmail Blog.

I've tried everything I can think of. I've checked through all the ProtonMail support articles (that claim they are 'step by step guide to find easily your answer'); I've investigated 'Common Login Problems', and none of the offered solutions apply (I'm not having a problem logging in; I'm having a problem logging in to something other than the inbox.) I've tried disabling browser extensions; checked the settings of Javascript, Session Storage, and Cookies; even tried using a different browser.

I think the answer to this conundrum is to configure Firefox -- just for proton -- so that instead of opening a new tab it opens the content in the same tab. But I've searched Firefox help, and have not been able to discover how to do that.

I fear I am slowly but surely going insane.

Please help!

MS Word Document Displayed Incorrectly in Firefox

I've posted the following in the MS Office Forum:

In the Word desktop app I used "-->", which Word autoconverts to a nice arrow. When viewing the document in the browser version of Word it gets mangled and shows up as a "à" symbol. Note: This happens on the same computer! My browser is Firefox (84.0.2). When using Edge or Chrome the arrows are displayed properly.

And got the following answer:

This appears to be a bug in Firefox. The two characters have the same Unicode value, 00E0, but the arrow is in the Wingdings font while the à is displayed in most non-symbol fonts. Although the font box on the ribbon in Word Online says the font of the character is Wingdings, Firefox fails to show it in that font.

Given that both Edge and Chrome seem to be able to display the document correctly, it seems to me that this is a Firefox bug?

Using FF 84.0.1 (64 bit) on Windows 10 Pro (v 20H2) (OS build 19042.685) (Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.551.0) and MS Office 2003.

Until recently I've never had this problem but now, when I right click an image on a website and choose 'copy image' then paste it into my MS Word 2003 document, instead of the image, I see text containing the image's location.

Example: Instead of a pasted photo I get this: { INCLUDEPICTURE "https://food.fnr.sndimg.com/content/dam/images/food/fullset/2020/21/KC2613_Country-Style-Eggs-Benedict_s4x3.jpg.rend.hgtvcom.826.620.suffix/1608571541589.jpeg" \* MERGEFORMATINET }rrrttttt5f4f4rrtt54frt54ff5

I am using Firefox with Default Search Engine set to Duck Duck Go. I seem to be unable to connect to duckduckgo.com be it either through typing my search in the address bar or duckduckgo.com. All I get is: "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site." Internet connection seems fine (no trouble connecting to other sites). Sometimes clearing "Cached Web Content" helps but it is troublesome to clear cache after each browser restart. How can I get the Duck to work with the Fox?

Selected options: Use the address bar for search and navigation Default Search Engine - DuckDuckGo Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed

84.0.2 (64-bit) Mozilla Firefox for Manjaro Linux Manjaro - 1.0

I would be happy to provide any additional information if needed.

For the first time after 10 years, I can no longer access my PNC bank account using Firefox V84.0.2. This problem started just this Sunday Jan 24, 2021. I am using AVG and the Defender firewall. When I try to enter my account PNC tells me that it cannot find the code and tells me to use another browser like Chrome or Internet Explorer which I don't want to do. PNC tell me to contact Firefox as, "It is not their problem." But so far I have found nothing in Firefox to solve the issue whatever is causing it. I need help as I would rather not change browsers.

I have restarted my PC, checked and restarted AVG, checked the troubleshooting program, and reinstalled Firefox, but nothing seems to correct the problem. So where do I go from here?

I'd like to stop receiving advertising emails from firefox. Firefox emails have been loading up in my spam folder since I didn't sign up for firefox sync. It began one day when I noticed an important looking warning informing me I needed to finish sigining up for sync. I had no cluse from the warning who was sending it. Spent some time with possible vendors and we realized it was mozilla. I turned it off/deleted/signed out/. I neve signed into mozilla sync to begin with. Now, mozilla is send me emails telling me to finish something I have yet to begin because I don't want it, which is sync. Now what I don't want are mozilla emails. This forum is the only way I can see to try and get word to mozilla. Oh, there's one other thing I might need some help with. Does anyone know if my bookmarks in mozilla firefox will transfer easily to say Google Chrome?

Yesterday "Other bookmarks" folder appeared into my Bookmark Toolbar, I don't know how. It looks like it's inside Bookmark Toolbar Items because if I customize the Firefox interface and I remove the Bookmark Toolbar Items, the Other bookmarks folder disappears as well.

Do you have any idea how it happened (to prevent it to happen again), and how to get rid of it without losing all bookmarks? I can't drag it, and if I right click on it, the items "Cut", "Delete", and "Properties" on the context menu are greyed out.

Attached screenshots are in Italian, but they are quite self-explanatory about the issue.
