When I try to screenshot and download an image it screenshots multiple images instead. My OS is Windows 10 and I'm having this problem when trying to screenshot and download an image from Instagram. I right click on the image as I always have and it screenshots and saves multiple images instead. I never had this problem before updating to Firefox 88 and I've been using the screenshot feature for well over two years. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox and I'm still having the same problem. The image I'm trying to save is the one on the upper right.

I recently tried to tidy up my browser bookmarks using 'manage bookmarks' and reordered them and removed several duplicates. The tree structure in the library looks kind-of weird too, as some directories such as 'bookmarks toolbar' appear 3 or 4 times, sometimes nested within itself.

After I had finished reorganising I exited and went to one of the directories on the bookmarks toolbar, but it is still showing all the old and duplicated bookmarks and none of the more recent ones.

What is happening, and is there anything I can do to fix it?

Hi, i have a strange loading behavior of some websites, that i created.

As an example, this URL: (it's an German website) https://mc-2021.hanno-fair-impuls.de/impuls-08-06-jahresevent-harzer-marketing-treff-marketing-speaker-abend.html

The page loads sometimes immediately and sometimes in doesn't until i hit refresh. And after i hit refresh it loads direct. Sometimes if the page is loaded, some resources like CSS files are not loaded completely , so the page looks broken, because of those missing CSS files. I cannot really describe the problem, it seems like the page is stuck in some situations and sometimes not.

In Chrome this behavior never happens and the URL opens direct. (I tested this very often in Chrome) Also there is no server problems like to much connections or load problems of the server.

Hopefully you can help me or point me to the right direction to find the reason of this problem.

Thank you.

Greetings Jay

I'm using Firefox 88.0.1 for Linux on a Chromebook running OS Ver. 91.... which uses Linux 5.4.109-26059-gc7455b8ce0e0 right now - but started on Ver. 88 or something and whatever version of Linix that used. Anybody know why I can't turn the title bar off and why the screen rendering generally looks a bit flaky? I'm guessing it has something to do with the display manager that Google use and that it's not responding any of the Firefox settings. I've tried all the easy stuff like the title bar check box and other settings in about::config

Any ideas?

I can't figure out how to adjust the column sizes in the bookmarks library, it's frozen in place even after I've restarted my computer. I can click the top of the column to sort and I can add other columns (tags, visit count etc.), I just can't adjust the size.

Has anyone else encountered this problem and found a solution?

Hi, I have not been able to edit / add to my bookmarks for some time. When I go into the Restore section it contains several dates and various bookmark numbers (alot of bookmarks are missing). When I went to restore to a previous date that had all bookmarks I got a message that it was 'Unable to process the back up file' and I have lost all of my bookmarks. In addition, I am transferring from an old iMac to a new one possibly via a Time Capsule back up and have concerns the whatever the problem is with Firefox it will automatically replicate to the new computer?

Wow... I just updated and am trying to use Firefox as my default browser yet again, however, yet again, it's RAM usage is ruining an otherwise good relationship. Why does this browser guzzle RAM so hungrily? I had to reboot it as I couldn't type any longer, without waiting every few letters before seeing them on the screen, and I've got 60 Gigs of RAM. But Firefox was using 22 of them!

This has obviously been an ongoing issue for years, both from my experience, and the 2,000 threads that come up in response to this issue. Come on guys, it can't be this impossible to create a functional browser that is more RAM efficient, what's the problem?

Oh, and it sure would be nice, given 2,000 results from my search, to be able to filter them by date. I'm using version 84, so threads dealing with version 50 or so, aren't going to be of much help...

My money program uses an importer to download files directly (rather than saving to desktop & manually importing. The institutions' choices always include OFX, QFX, and QIF. The Application list in Options lists OFX -- in two places-- and QFX. Both are assigned to the importer.

No matter what format I choose, I have to browse for the importer (several clicks). To check, I downloaded account information for several accounts held with the same institution, cycling through those 3 formats. Same result each time. "Always do this" is checked and OFX and QFX are assigned to the importer as you can see in the screenshot.

Shouldn't FF be adding QIF when I download activity in that format? I certainly didn't add OFX or QFX manually! And can anyone explain why "Use importer" is broken?

TIA mm

I sure hope you can. I purchase Family Tree Make 2019 recently and chose to download the program. I currently have Windows 10 and Microsoft Edge. But Edge will not allow me to download the program: it sends me a message that it is blocked. I've spent several hours trying to untangle this problem with FTM support and doing my own research on the 'net. The latest suggestion is that I try a different browser and Firefox was suggested. Now I'm not interested in becoming computer savvy; I just want to do genealogy. Is this something Firefox can support without thirteen pages of instruction? My second question: I will have to buy a new operating system this fall as Windows 10 is apparently no longer supported. What program would you recommend? Thanks ahead of time for your help.

in settings I have turned off all enhanced tracking I could find but apparently it doesn't keep the browser from blocking stuff. I have to go up to the address line and turn it off there. I'm getting sick to death and if I can't stop this enhanced tracking I'm done with firefox. Before you say I need it, the browser is already set to delete all cookies etc and never remember history when I close it.

So how can i stop firefox from enhanced tracking stuff even though nothing is checked under the Custom box in settings?
