Dear Mozilla community, I was re-ordering the main tabs for daily use. The little blue line that indicates a move-change was about to show up when my finger slipped from the Apple Magic trackpad. The TAB that I use for dissertation work (PHD) disappeared. Thinking that it simply was transferred to the my Bookmarks, I checked there. No joy. I also checked to the bookmark menu TAB for my university teaching work. Not there either? Hmm. I searched for the Bookmark (PHD) and I am not able to locate it.

Any suggestions?

I would be most grateful.

Sincerely, AM

Hello,

Since 3-4 days, Sync no longer synchronizes any elements, from one device to another i no longer have access to my passwords saved in Lockwise or my shared tabs. I tried to disconnect all my devices then reconnect, i "forced" synchro, i installed the Lockwise Android app on my phone but but the sync runs in a vacuum so the app doesnt seem to download my data & credentials...

What can i do more to recover my data or restore sync ?

Up until recently I was using a 11 year old laptop that was slowing dying. I was finally able to acquire a new computer and get it up and running just before an accident (as if out of a comedy movie - the roommate's cat knocked a full bowl of cereal onto the old laptop) effectively destroyed the old machine. Thankfully, Firefox Sync meant that everything I had been working on appeared when I got the new machine fully functional...until I logged on to Firefox this evening to find my Synced Tabs empty with just a "Want to see your tabs from other devices here? Connect Another Device" message.

The old device is toast...I don't know if it will even turn on again, much less function enough to sign into Firefox. Synced Tabs was also working just fine for a solid week until it just up and disappeared. Is there some way to restore these? I know it's my fault for relying/expecting Sync to always be there and not backing up the links I had open immediately, and this is a mistake I won't make again...but I'd really love to not lose everything I had open.

Thank you very much in advance for any help or suggestions.

Extended desktop, two different PCs, vertical layout.

Upon opening Firefox a white bar appears across the bottom of the top screen and the only way to get rid of it is to hit F11 (Fullscreen) twice. Minimizing, maximizing, restoring all have no effect - only taking it from a normal window to Fullscreen view (no menu bar or tabs), then back to a normal window works.

It happens on every new window opened and it doesn't matter which display it is opened on, the bar will be there if moved to the bottom screen, until F11 is pushed for that instance of Firefox twice.

This has happened before and it would seem to go away on later updates, but it is currently visible on every computer I have that has one display above another.

since a recent windows update, firefox doesnt acknowledge my normal camera. a few weeks before the update i used a temporary extra camera for a meeting on teams. i normally have meetings with zoom, teams, and a web-based teaching tool. after the update all 3 had switched to the temporary camera, which is not suitable for face-to-face. however zooms and teams offered both cameras and i was able to correct it. however firefox only shows the one (wrong) camera when i access the teaching tool. It does seem to be a browser problem, because the Edge browser does offer both camera. however I do not want to use the Edge or chrome for various privacy related reasons.

Sorry if long-winded, just trying to provide pertinent info...


So, when I click on the bookmarks icon, I get the following options...

View Bookmarks Sidebar Show All Bookmarks Bookmarks Toolbar Other Bookmarks

The only one I ever use, the only one I need, is actually the Other Bookmarks folder.

This means I'm at minimum two clicks from my bookmarks, and three clicks from an actual bookmark.


My question...


How can I fix Firefox so that when I click on the Bookmarks icon it actually shows the bookmarks I seek to find, instead of all that other fluff I never use?


It'd be so nice to be only two clicks from a bookmark, thus...


1) Open Bookmarks icon 2) See my bookmarks


Thanks for any help you can provide here, as it is so annoying the way it is now.

Hello, Mozzila Firefox keeps freezing on Linux Mint ,any distro that I used, luckily its the default browser that is used , so new users get to be tortured by it. In addition the garbage pile that is the mozzila account keeps deleting passwords even though its the same god damn account even after syncing it. So to summarize I will be switching to google chrome cause at least their browser fucking works even though it devours all the ram it can find. God bless.

Maybe my request is very weird. But ever since the new firefox/mozilla revamp, I am told I have to log in each time I use firefox. I don't know why and what benefits. Its time consuming as after the log in, I need to get a code from my emails and so on. It is really annoying to do this. Or am i doing something wrong and have missed something? Anything will help before I start disusing firefox due to these extra steps. Thanks for tips. Peter

Hi When I log out of Firefox and then log in again the settings that I want have changed themselves. I want the following settings to remain but they don't.

Logins and Passwords Ask to save logins and passwords for websites Autofill logins and passwords Save History

All the logins and passwords that I want to keep appear in the list and most of the websites still log in as normal BUT there are a couple who insist I re-enter username and password and I don't want to keep having to do this. I have tried clearing all cookies and saved log ins for the problem websites and then re entered them after ticking the login/password option and it works fine. However when I end Firefox and then log in again these websites then insist I re enter everything. I have even deleted version 81 and managed to re-install an earlier version but that still fails.

I frequently do a lot of diverse research, and try to maintain a strict subject matter thread in each open window. As a result, I have 150+ windows open, each with a number of tabs. Even with the win 10 bottom taskbar expanded all the way, it is difficult to find a particular window, as they are all randomly displayed. Is there a way to alphabetically sort the open Firefox windows shown in the win 10 taskbar? Would this be a Firefox function, or is it a Windows function? Any assistance would be appreciated!

Dear Volunteer,

First of all, I have to thank you to build the community in your freetime. I've changed my computer. I have 2 firefox accounts, the first for private browsing, the second one for work browsing, and I use them via different Firefox profiles. The configuration of the private account (adam**********y@gmail.com) was succesful. But the configuration of the work account (s****i@orfk.police.hu) was not. I've used this accounts since 2013, and I'd reconfigured them so many times, and there wasn't any problem until now. The actually problem is the unreceived verigfication email. I've tried the actions below: - checking email working -> Perfectly works. - checking spam folder -> There is no any mail in the spam folder. - adding accounts@firefox.com to contact list -> Done. I did not get the verification emails. The administrators probably changed the security settings. I cannot log in, I cannot sync. I tried to send you this letter from my work e-mail, but I did not find any support address, just this option. How can I resolve this problem? Thans for your help.

Kind regards,

Adam Sterbinszky
