My bookmarks and most history no longer accessable. They may be gone. I need to know where they are stored so I can make sure they are gone. If they are gone I have other machines which do have bookmarks. I think there is a way to copy the bookmarks from one system to another. Hopefully that information is in the main default-release and I can move a copy to the lacking bookmarks closer to the machine with no bookmarks and import what I need?

I play a game at Vegas World. It's basically a free online slot machine site. I have played it for years with Chrome. Recently switched to Firefox. Playing an auto spin slot game, Firefox gets slow and hangs after about 25 spins. Chrome will go for 10,000 spins. So, Firefox is useless on game sites. I don't really expect a fix or solution. And I don't actually expect to use Firefox by the end of the day.

Hello, this is a problem I've been dealing with for nearly 2 months now. Currently using Linux Mint Cinnamon

The browser won't connect to any websites or even try to load them, anytime I search for something it immediately goes to the error page. I've been struggling with internet on my PC for months and all was fixed when I hooked up ethernet, except for Firefox.

I've gone into about:config countless times. I've restarted it twice, I've tried installing the flatpak version and it's exactly the same result. I've deleted it and reinstalled, nothing. I've unchecked everything I've changed in about:config, once again nothing.

I can't update it as for some reason it says it's disabled by system administrator, which I don't remember enabling. I checked the firewall and it's perfectly fine. No infections were found when I scanned as well.

It's starting to become frustrating and I can't even do anything on my PC because it's acting up. Any and all help is more than appreciated and welcome. Thank you.

I really like Firefox, and have been using it for many years. I even used Netscape navigator back in the bad old days! But there are two things that really annoy me:

- I can't seem to be able to place bookmarks into folders on the desktop (like I can with Vivaldi). For example: I visit a lot of news sites, so I'd like to have a folder called "News", and put them all it there instead of having my news site bookmarks all over the desktop. I just find it a cleaner way to organise my desktop.

- I can't seem to customize my search, apart from selecting between the default search engines. I'd like to be able to search "google.co.za" instead of "google.com", but there doesn't seem to be a way of changing that (again, like I can with Vivaldi).

If I could sort these issues out, Firefox would be my main browser, and I'd scrap Vivaldi as I find that it's getting too "heavy". (Of course, maybe these features contribute to that!)

Thank you.

I've looked for solutions, some had weird MTU settings, some needed to enable hardware acceleration in Chrome, but haven't found a solution that works. Created a new profile to try that out, but still no dice.

I can do a test recording in Google Meet, which displays my video just fine, but when playing back, it's just a black screen, and that is also what happens if I share my screen. Participants get a lot of black.

I've been using Firefox with Google meet for many years, and never had this problem before. I did report the issue in Meet, but it's not likely to attract much attention from Google.

Suggestions much appreciated.

I'm using Manjaro Linux and I place Firefox in a particular position on the screen. In the previous version, just before 122.0, Firefox would "remember" the last position on the screen. Now when it starts up, the window is in the middle of the screen and not to the top left as when it was shut down. Anyone else notice this?

I have a fresh Ubuntu 22.04 workstation running on a Xeon w5-3433 (16x 2.0-4.2GHz). I noticed that certain front-end heavy websites (e.g. chess.com) are extremely laggy & cause CPU usage to spike to the point that other processes (e.g. Spotify audio processing) hang for ~500 ms. Additionally, simple actions (opening a new tab, closing the ctrl-f search bar) also cause CPU spikes & hangs. This shouldn't be happening.

Thus far I have: 1) Switched snap channel to Firefox beta 2) Switched snap channel to Firefox nightly 3) Uninstalled the Firefox snap; reinstalled from the new Mozilla repo via apt 4) Cried, sobbed 5) Obtained turbostat info (interrupts spike from ~75k to >100k when actively using ff (e.g. mousing over website elements/having chess.com tab active/rendering); ff is open always). Here it is: https://pastebin.com/Q2ZCDC0t 6) Run the ff profiler on laggy tabs. Screenshot attached.

Help! I am perplexed. What's all this RefreshDriver stuff? How do I kill the jank?

I recently updated Firefox and now I'm getting a noticeable stutter when playing back videos. I used to have this issue when I first got my steam deck so I installed a flatpak ffmpeg-full which fixed the issue completely but a recent update I installed has brought the issue back. I uninstalled and reinstalled the flatpak and restarted my device but the issue persists.
