I know how to bookmark a page- what I want to know is how to restore the bookmark star in the address bar (I accidentally removed it). I KNOW that you can bookmark a page by clicking the 3 dots at the end of the address bar and using the drop down menu, etc, or key commands.

BUT- I want to RESTORE the star that easily and quickly allowed you to bookmark a page. All other answers to this same question seem to only tell people alternate ways to bookmark a page. I don't need that. I need to know how to restore bookmark star to address bar. Thanks! my firefox ver is 84.0.1 64bit

All was good until sometime today. FF 84.0.2 W10 up to date. Previously, when browsing FB marketplace, i could send a message about an item for sale. That send message button is now greyed out. The messenger button on the top right of my screen used to open a dropdown/popup that gave me a summary of my messages. That no longer works. I have been thru all kinds of settings randomly on FF and FB to try and correct the issue but i cannot figure out what is going on. I have tried turning Ublock on and off but that has not helped either. The only access i now have to messenger is to open it separately. I have not changed any FB settings. I did not change any FF settings myself other than trying to find out what could be doing this and exploring ublock for possibilities as that seemed the most likely culprit. Can anyone shed some light on what the issue is.

I've read some complaints about the font that FF desktop uses on some websites. I'm seeing a very annoying font with some letters thicker (almost bold) and other letters thin. This occurs, for example, on the mozilla.org website and when FF is displaying a PDF.

I have "allow pages to choose their own fonts" checked, and I am not using hardware acceleration.

I went into the developer console and turned off the Mozilla-supplied font for a support webpage, and it then used something like a Times New Roman, but it was uniform in letter thickness.

I have attached screen snips.

If I display the same page using Chrome, the font looks great, so I don't know exactly what the problem is, but it's clearly a FF problem.

Notice in Chrome that the word "garbled" is in bold, and it does not appear in bold in either of the FF font examples.

On 84.0.2 on OSx.

Firefox will offer to save usernames and passwords, but then does not remember them in the future. Attempting to import existing data from another browser into Lockwise prompts a request to set a primary password first. Attempting to set a primary password (which is currently not set), yields the error message "Unable to change primary password."

Profile migration FF Rapid Release 84.x to ESR 78.6.x (Offline)

Dear all,

I am planning a move towards the Firefox ESR 78.6.x. Currently my customer is using the Firefox Rapid Release 84.x and need your help with the profile migration. The customer has a very isolated on-premises environment and does not allow the users to login into a Firefox-Account. Therefore the settings for Cookies, Cache, History and especially Bookmarks are not synched.

Environment details:

  • Enterprise environment with several tausends of clients
  • All clients on Windows 10 Enterprise between 1809 and 20H2
  • All clients have always the newest Firefox installed currently 84.x

This creates a huge challenge to sync this stuff. Therefore I have now identified the following two options:

  1. 1 Allow the downgrade by using the environment variable MOZ_ALLOW_DOWNGRADE on Windows. For this option I am trying to find the real reason why this "Downgrade-Stop" has been implemented in the first place? What risks in detail do I take to allow this downgrade? Has anybody done this before and do you mind to share your experience here? How many issues did you face and how did you remediate the issues?
  1. 2 Hand over the migration to the users. Copy their current profile to their desktop and ask them to import their bookmarks manually. Not preferred by users and I can't even blame them for.

Is there any other way to automatically sync the profiles from 84.x to ESR 78.6.x without user interaction?

Thanks in advance Amir

When I go to https://www.sz-shop.de/ostern, FF tells me that there is a risk

"Warnung: Mögliches Sicherheitsrisiko erkannt ... Am wahrscheinlichsten wird das Problem durch die Website verursacht und Sie können nichts dagegen tun. Sie können den Website-Administrator über das Problem benachrichtigen."

That is what I did. I called that shop and told about that warning. The lady on the phone also went to the address, but she did NOT see that warning. She confirmed that her PC was OUTSIDE of sz-shop.de like mine.

So the problem is a potentially wrong warning? Or how can we explain that I see a warning and other people do not see it?

Firefox has a "list all tabs" button, which looks like a "v" in the tabs bar, next to the plus. It works great but when I maximize the window (not F11 full screen, but Windows OS Maximize Window), this button disappears. Seems like a bug; I can't think why you would want that button to be removed when the window is maximized.

I have a problem with YouTube looking in Firefox. When I go to any channel, the header of the channel is not displayed at all, together with its content, i.e. the name of the channel, banner, links, etc. I checked the code by examining the element and I found something like that

  1. header, #search-pva, #premium-yva, #feedmodule-PRO, #video-masthead, #watch-buy-urls, #sub-frame-error, #main-frame-error, #watch7-sidebar-ads, #feed-pyv-container, #shelf-pyv-container, #watch-branded-actions, #watch-channel-brand-div, #homepage-chrome-side-promo, #watch-channel-brand-div-text {
   display: none !important;

}

when I unchecked display none, I saw everything normally after refreshing the page as well. I restarted my browser and didn't see the header again. Someone knows how to fix it, because what if it is a bit disturbing and irritating when you can't see it. You can see everything normally in Chrome. I don't want to use Chrome because I don't like it and this browser sucks in my opinion. Thank you for your help on the screen below :)

Hello!

After updating to the most recent version the shortcut (CTRL+SHIFT+B) for the bookmark manager has changed to CTRL+SHIFT+O . WHY?!? after years and years now that? the old one you could manage with one hand...especially annoying if you use the bookmark manager often and used to open it with one hand while not having to let go off the mouse with the other hand. and second... is there a way to customize shortcuts etc? in the old firefox there was apparently, but that is now gone?!? or is there a way with the help of about:config?

with regards

This is going for months, right now the only fix seems to switch to Opera... Can you guys provide solutions to this?

In one of the recent updates the Page Range box is blank. It used to default to '1' but now defaults to nothing. I often just want to print the first page so I want to change this back.

Where is the option to make this the default? Is there a setting or addon I can use to get this back?
