Hi, My Bookmarks Toolbar keeps multiplying if I move it. I now have about 10 toolbars the same. But if I try to delete one it deletes from the main one also. It's like they are all ghost copies.

So what can I do?

Since the problem occurs only on Firefox where the "Following" icon on my Pinterest home page is missing and not on other browsers, I'm wondering if the problem occurs because of some problem with my Mozilla Firefox. This has been going on for over a week. Would clearing my cookie cache help? Is there a danger than I would lose passwords to sites if I did so?

I have a new iMac. After making Firefox my default browser and then making some Bookmarks. When shutting down the computer and rebooting. The Firefox Browser will open at Login as I have set it too. But it opens to the "Welcome to Firefox " page again and doesn't recognize the Bookmarks that were saved earlier.

Client certificates don't stay deleted. cert9.db is restored on Firefox Nightly re-launch.

Steps to reproduce: - I delete a client certificate "Your certificates" - I close Certificate Manager - I open Certificate Manager and the certificate is back

- I delete the same client certificate - I locate the profile in about:profiles (Profile: default-nightly, is in use)

 I do "show in Finder" and delete cert9.db

- I close CM - I open CM and the cert is back

- I delete the same client certificate - I locate the profile in about:profiles (Profile: default-nightly, is in use)

 I do "show in Finder" and delete cert9.db

- I close Firefox Nightly - I open Firefox Nightly and cert9.db is restored, the certificate is back.

uname -a: Darwin Axels-Dev-MacBook-Pro.local 20.5.0 Darwin Kernel Version 20.5.0: Sat May 8 05:10:33 PDT 2021; root:xnu-7195.121.3~9/RELEASE_X86_64 x86_64 BigSur 11.4

The client cert is not in the Keychain. It was before but I thought maybe it is restored from the keychain.

It's awful. I switched from Chrome because it's a CPU hog, but FF is absolutely USELESS. NOTHING works. It crashes if there's more than like 5 tabs open. It WILL. NOT. PLAY. YOUTUBE. I have only one extension-- adblock-- and basically any site with blocked ads becomes useless. Convenient... These problems started literally the first day I used it. I've cleared cache etc, safe mode, and made sure the hardware settings were right. Nothing works. Piece of garbage. Good job screwing up a half decent product. It's crap now. Waste of my time.

I'd guess there's already a discussion regarding this, but I don't know where. Getting rid of the borders when there are multiple tabs open and turning things gray makes for a far worse browsing experience for me. Why would one string of undifferentiated text in a long line of tabs make things any easier? It does not.

I've found a helpful site that allows turning off the new theme, but a commenter advises that that option too will soon be disabled: https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-old-classic-theme-and-ui-in-firefox-89-and-later-versions/

Is there an add-on that keeps the "classic" theme? I've googled how to provide feedback. One of those links is dead. What's the best way to make my thoughts known?

People love tech, but the older I get the more I see how it demonstrates a lack of ownership, that nothing is really yours on your devices, that what you're comfortable with is only one weekly update away.

The option in the Help menu for "submit feedback" is still present on version 87 but is no longer functional and has been out of service for 3 months.

Is an expected date or version pending to reactivate or will it be removed?

I was using Firefox this morning, and the program crashed. When I restarted, I found I had lost all my passwords. I searched for the "Old Firefox Data" folder on my desktop--and everywhere else, and there is no such folder on my computer. I tried importing passwords from Safari and that didn't work at all. I am traveling right now and don't have access to my backup disk.

This is the second time this has happened with FF, and I am about to dump the program because of this.

Any ideas?
