A problem with setting a new bookmark

I hit bookmark this page and the window opens, 1st screen capture.

https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-09-24-23-47-06-d7aee0.png

Next I expand "other bookmarks" then "choose" See 2nd screen capture

https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-09-24-23-52-08-d9387a.png

When I click on "choose" see what happens in the 3rd screen capture.

https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-09-24-23-54-18-679698.png

I can choose the sub folder to save the bookmark to. BUT I now CAN'T scroll down the screen to hit the save button. Because the bookmark window doesn't have a scroll bar or a way to make the bookmark window smaller. This is frustrating. Firefox is having other issues not connected with this issue. But the overall picture is getting me to the point of dumping Firefox and going to Google Chrome.

Starting this morning I'm getting a weird error message when I try to share articles from things like Daily KOS from my email. This is the message: "App Not Setup: This app is still in development mode, and you don't have access to it. Switch to a registered test user or ask an app admin for permissions."

  I have no idea what that means and I don't see any references to it in the community answers. Suggestions?

Thanks.

Facebook tab causes a lot of memory-related errors on Firefox 80

I use Firefox on a daily basis. It's open 24/7 on my PC and has 7 pinned tabs because I use them all almost everyday - they are mostly e-mail. It's set to auto-update and I think it recently updated to version 80. Ever since Facebook announced the removal of Facebook Classic and rolled out a Messenger update yesterday, I have been getting weird memory-related issues. Since I don't use Firefox exclusively, I just minimize it but it's always running. When I maximize it back to use it, the Facebook pinned tab does something crazy and all my other software start complaining that Windows ran out of memory and sometimes even crashing them though Firefox doesn't and the Facebook page looks garbled like its CSS gets corrupted. I am using the new Facebook - the one that looks like an app - in Dark Mode. The issue only happens when I use Facebook. The issue started happening yesterday.

Important note: this only started happening yesterday. The only thing that changed was the update to Firefox 80 and the roll out of the new Facebook Messenger update. This PC is rarely shut down. Also, when I am using the network (like downloading games from Steam or Epic Games or GOG Galaxy), the issue worsens and Explorer crashes and closes everything in my notification area.

Current workaround: I closed the Facebook pinned tab and everything seems to be working fine.

Specs: Firefox version 80 (no plugins) Windows 10 version 2004 Core-i7 4790K, 32Gb RAM, SSD + 19 Terabytes total HDD NVidia RTX 2070 Super with latest Game Ready drivers

I use the Bookmarks Bar extensively. But all the folders are the same color. I would find it much easier to find things quickly if I could change individual folder colors.

Any way to do this?

I'm already using Jscher's excellent UserChrome script to make the folders an attractive yellow, instead of gray. But can this be done for individual foders?

Hello everyone, Trying to find out if my Mac Mini has been infected with flashback. Using this terminal command,

defaults read /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/Info LSEnvironment,

I got this response:

{MallocNanoZone = 0;}

It should read:

The domain/default pair of (/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/Info, LSEnvironment) does not exist

I cannot find anything about this and was wondering if it indicates anything malicious. Anyone know about this? Thanks.

I just want to report a malware attack I experienced yesterday (8/29/20) which seemed to affect only Firefox.

After I clicked on the link to Boston Globe article my Firefox screen was filled with what purported to be a message from Microsoft saying that my computer was blocked because of suspicious activity detected on my IP address and telling me to call 1-888-222-6480. It also wanted me to enter my Microsoft password and warned me not to turn off my computer. The whole thing looked suspicious to me, especially since a pop-up window on the page requesting me to enter something (I forget what) showed a URL that began https://drink3.ga At some point, I don’t remember whether it was when I did turn off my computer or whether it was because I didn’t respond to messages commands, the malware did something to make my computer heat up and caused the fan to run at a ferocious rate until a message appeared that a break point had been reached and Firefox closed down. I was then able to use another browser to get to the Firefox support page and learn about refreshing Firefox. After I did that, Firefox behaved normally.

I am sending this to you because it’s something you should be aware of and represents a vulnerability in Firefox that should be addressed.

Every version from 69 to 80 crashes and then will not restart unless I log off or restart the computer. The crashes happen every time. I have uninstalled. I have have installed different versions. It will not start in safe mode after a crash. I can start in safe mode after a restart of the computer, it still crashes soon after.

I only have windows defender at the moment and I have that turned off right now. Windows 10 Pro.

Any help would be appreciated.
