Recently a bookmark was randomly deleted. FireFox has been doing this for the last several version. But, before, it wasn't much of a problem - I'd just do a restore from a bookmarks bu file that had the bookmark that had been deleted.

But not this time.

Clicked on the day I wanted, and got the usual warning that it would replace all the existing bookmarks. But when it was run, it deleted all the bookmarks, but did not replace them with the ones from the bu file.

I then had _no_ bookmarks. There were none displayed, except for the star, something else I don't remember, and 'Other Bookmarks'. But clicking on these showed no content - they were empty.

At one point, and sometimes, a small window appeared saying 'Unable to process the backup file'. But this was after the current bookmarks had been deleted.

I'm on 91.01, 64bit. I found other, earlier 9x versions, dl'd and installed them. The attempt to restore bookmarks also failed running them

I then dl and installed a 89.x. But of course when I tried to run it, I got the warning about potential problems and the only choices to create a new profile or to exit. I chose to exit, and reinstalled the current version from a fresh dl.

After a few more attempts and system reboots, after the last reboot the current bookmarks reappeared, w.o. the deleted bookmark (as expected). I have no idea why.

Bottom line: I can no longer depend on FireFox. Fortunately, the deleted bookmark had relatively little content, so it can be recreated with 2 or 3 hours work. But what happens when a bookmark with lots of content gets deleted? I have bookmarks that have content going back at least 10 years. There is no way I could recreate them. Years of work would be lost. I don't understand why, if the backup file couldn't be processed, the operation wasn't aborted w.o. making any changes. This is what a failed process should do by default.

I find myself incredulous that the FireFox development team let such an egregious bug slip through. That's unacceptable.

Until sometime around earlier this year, I was able to use "Import bookmarks from HTML" between different PCs/laptops, and it would always restore everything flawlessly from that backup file: all folders intact, and every single bookmark in the exact order it's been for about 14 years.

But now, whenever I use the Import feature, all folders are flattened/emptied and everything goes into alphabetical order. No matter what I do, they will not load in my uniquely crafted order (based on the sidebar, which I use exclusively). Everything goes into a single unmanageable lump in Bookmarks Menu.

Restoring from JSON makes no difference.

Versions tested from 78ESR all the way to 91. At one point, I went back to 88 and it worked fine for a day or two, but then didn't.

Dear Community,

Something I use every day for work is the Google search for "hotels near Brooklyn, NY" (for example or any address in different cities), which I then choose the first photo map result.

And almost always, even while in troubleshooting safe mode), the map will always load (and expand and contract), but unfortunately the hotel description results on the left will not populate (even though it begins to populate - and then disappears. When it doesn't, I constantly have to reload the page to make it work. I haven't seen this problem in 5 years, and Google Chrome (which I hate using, but used to test against Firefox) has no problems loading the page each and every time (regardless of the address or city name I use). This began occurring within seconds of updating to the latest Firefox version. I suggest experimenting a few times so you can see the problem develop. You can also scroll to the bottom of the page and select page 2, to also see this lack of population.

I did a System Restore and lost my "other bookmarks", my downloads, and my address bar auto-complete or suggestions - whichever that is called. Is there any way I can get these back?

After I did the System Restore the Firefox browser was no longer on my computer which didn't make any sense. It said a new version was available and asked me if I wanted to install it which I did.

Since the update 91.0 (x32bit or x64bit) the image slide-shows from different parts of the browser page for Ebay sites fails to load. I have x64bit Win7 OS. This is a problem with all Ebay sites in Firefox but not Chrome.

I have found other commercial sites using a similar image routine are OK.

The attached image from the site below is an example https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/293954988637?hash=item4471152a5d:g:BocAAOSwvN5gUa51 I cannot move through the available images indicated.

Otherwise I have no other problem with 91.0

Kind Regards Simon

Hi all After update 90.0.2 installed on my computer, FIrefox started flickering all the time a new page gets opened. I have never had such a problem before, nor I had any hardware change in the last two months. I tried several proposed solutions concerning flickering like refreshing, disabling hardware acceleration etc. but nothing helps. I wonder what happened in 90.0.2 which caused that. I just installed update 91.0 and the flickering still persists.

I am using Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit on a Dell Vostro 3750 Laptop if that matters. Thank you

I've received 0 responses from 4 days ago when I posted that since the update to 90.0.2 there are portions of the home page and web pages that block out periodically. I ran Firefox in safe mode and the problem disappeared, I performed a refresh of Firefox and restarted my machine. The blocking or as one other person described it as shadowing still happens but not as bad. I wasn't having any problems with the 2 previous versions at all so I would like to know if something is going to be done about this? Is anyone else having the same problem as I am. I haven't any extensions running, I turned off hardware acceleration so what else can I do?

Please continue here: [/questions/1346320]
When I bring up the Firefox browser the page has macro blocking as best as I can describe it on the home page, and also when I bring up website pages. Portions of the page block out periodically during all sessions, the update didn't fix anything with my experience. I've turned off hardware acceleration, turned off all extensions as was prescribed and the problem persists and I don't know what else I can do. I have stopped using Firefox as my default browser for the reasons stated and I haven't found any solutions on the forums.
