I use the the bookmarks toolbar extensively, I have nested folders in the toolbar. Recently one of my folders disappeared, I blame my wife but it could have been me... I am hoping it got dragged to another folder but have not been able to find it yet. I used the "show all bookmarks" page and searched and found one of the links in the missing folder but I am unable to tell where the bookmark is stored in my hierarchical organization. Can anybody give me some pointers on finding my missing folder?

Thanks!

A day ago I did the Firefox update to 75.0. Since then I have had trouble viewing ebay items. After you do a ebay search a list of items show up. When you open an item from a search list, you get a photo of the item usually on the left side and a description below the photo item. However, below and after the description everything including other seller photos and text are on the left side of the page. Normally they are across the page from the left side to right side. But now the layout is all on the left side. Everything is against the left side only and very hard to read. For many years I have never run into this problem before. I signed off and restarted Ebay with same problem. Looked at my son's computer and the ebay layout looked correct like like mine use to. I also opened up my google chrome browser and signed onto ebay. The ebay photos and text were correctly located on the page. So it appears that the recent update to firefox will not display the correct layout format in ebay. Can I download to the previous version of firefox? I 'm using latest Firefox browser 75.0 and running Windows 10. I attached a screen shot photo.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Please remember I am old and not at all computer savvy and would be so grateful for a slow and easy to follow method.

Thank you so much in advance for your help.

Basically since about 15-30 days ago my firefox has been constantly crashing when I open new tab or even simply a link to a website... the more 'power consuming' process is the more likely it will crash. Simply browsing stuff has nearly 0 likelihood of crashing. The frequency varies - something like youtube or steam game browsing will crash with extremely high frequency and will work fine after reopened. Some text based websites will barely ever crash the firefox.

What happens is either instant crash(most frequently) or infinite 'not responding' with the solution being task manager end process.

Either way it happens - reopening browser reopens all tabs that were open.

What I tried: 1) Cleared cache 2) Disabled all extensions. 3) Tried checking about:crashes - 0 reports there in last 30 days... meaning whenever I crash no actual crash report comes in.

I am using chrome at the same time and it has 0 crashing issues under similar circumstances.

'Hi, is this a known issue? Ebay will not render inside my Firefow browser.

Still looks like some parts of the page don't load, tried all the individual line items in 'page info' without success.

Seems to forget that the security was overwritten.

I used this app on Firefox which provides "aliases" for my credit card for online purchases. After an update, it was no longer available on Firefox; I now use Chrome for all purchases. Does anyone know what happened to Eno and if it will return to Firefox? I'm a user and not a technician so I'd appreciate non-technical language if possible. Thanks.

When I launch Firefox, the first click is ignored. So I must click it once again, it's a little frustrating...

I'm having this problem with Twitter, Gmail, and Google news, and I can open it in Facebook, StackOverFlow, and Tumblr with no problems.

This does not occur when opening in a private window or in windows opened using Ctrl-N. I checked in the "network" tab of the development tools and the transfer volume says "blocked".

Disabling Windows Security doesn't effect anything.(I don't install other security tools) What is the problem?

Firefox, Captcha problems and live plugs

I use Firefox 79. I have removed all the extensions except my antivirus (Avast Ultimate) which includes a VPN but the VPN is currently turned off. I have Firefox 79 installed on two computers, one of which connects by CPL ("powerline adapters/homeplugs") and the other connects to the router by an ethernet cable. My Firefox settings are identical on both machines and I have no Captcha problems with the one using the ethernet cable. I also completely turned off my home network and reset it - fibre optic box, router, both computers, and unplugged the CPLs - and then restarted them from the optic box forwards one by one. It made no difference, the CPL problem still exists.

I sought help on the Microsoft Community Forum and sent the two blokes I was working with all the above info and they concluded that the problem wasn't with the CPLs which, incidentally are TP-LINK, model TL-PA7010P(KitFR) with the Version 3 software. All three lights on each of the CPLs are solid green. I have also informed TP-Link France of the problem and I'm waiting for their reply. Following advice from one of the blokes on the MS Forum, I ran a Speedtest.net on the CPL machine and the results were: downloading 91.99Mbps and uploading 87.47Mpbs and the Ping response was 20. (This is all nonsense to me but may help you.) Both people on the MS Forum concluded that the problem does not lie with the CPL.

I'm going to replace the CPLs with a 30m ethernet cable (less aesthetically pleasing and more encumbering) to see if that resolves the issue.

As a researcher and writer I'm constantly on the web, and have many downloaded book marks that were organized by folders on the Menu bar. But this old laptop seems to crash frequently when I'm using Firefox. After the most recent crash most of the folders had vanished - three did not.

How can I restore those missing folders to the menu bar? Redoing them is a possibility, but would take a great deal of time.

Thanks,
