My bookmarks and most history no longer accessable. They may be gone. I need to know where they are stored so I can make sure they are gone. If they are gone I have other machines which do have bookmarks. I think there is a way to copy the bookmarks from one system to another. Hopefully that information is in the main default-release and I can move a copy to the lacking bookmarks closer to the machine with no bookmarks and import what I need?

I have recently noticed that I can no longer see the "comments" sections on various "News" websites. I first noted this with Townhall Media sites (Townhall.com, Redstate.com, Pjmedia.com) and now Foxnews.com. What has Firefox changed that has resulted in this issue? Most of these sites use Disqus for comments. I have tried explicitly allowing content from these sites. I've been using Mozzila products since the advent of Netscape. Always found Firefox to be superior to other browsers, and I'd like a little help in finding out what is causing this problem. Thanks.

This is outright censorship which is something [edited] do.

Tell me how to fix your browser so I may access x.com again or I stop using Firefox forever.

Hi there! I've been having problems with youtube not working in firefox lately. It's ONLY in firefox that it does this issue in, I've tried it in other browsers. Youtube tends to just....stop buffering in firefox for some reason? My internet connection is not the issue so I'm not sure what I could do to mess with it, I've done a fresh install of firefox, I've cleared cache and cookies. I'm genuinely at a loss.

It takes FOREVER for it to actually s tart up in the video too. The video plays fine until it just...stops buffering and takes 5-10 minutes to load. As mentioned before this is only an issue in firefox.

I don't want my search queries to be saved in the firefox search bar. I usually open a new tab with Ctrl+T, hit Ctrl+K to go to the search bar and hit enter without any keywords. This opens the search engine page (in my case google.com)

Now hitting enter with an empty search bar does nothing. Started happening with the new version 128.

Is there a shortcut alternative to opening the search engine in a new tab?

I get this message from Gmail when I try to print or open in a new tab.

"Grrr! A popup blocker may be preventing the application from opening the page. If you have a popup blocker, try disabling it to open the window."

I can not find a way to fix this and did not have this problem with the previous version.

Recently Firefox is slower and when I have one screen up and go to task manager it shows anywhere from 8 to 40 instances of Firefox running and sometimes 98% CPU usage. I have had other problems since the Microsoft January 9, 2024 update. Is this related or is this a separate Firefox issue? How to start fixing?

I can paste into Firefox but something has broken copy!

Hi there,

In the search settings, I have set DuckDuckGo as my default search engine and removed all other engines from the list of options. However, I often notice that Google (which I have removed from the options) has replaced DuckDuckGo as my default search engine and has again been added as an optional search engine, without me knowing. Why is this happening? Is it possible to stop it happening, and if so, how can I stop it happening?

Cheers Paul
