When I go to create a new bookmark in firefox I find that the file name is already allocated, and that file name is appearing on all old bookmarks as well. Instead of saying Other Bookmarks it says Location. This is only happening since I moved to Version 95.0 I have had to stop trying to create new bookmarks, and would appreciate any help I can get.

I always have automatic updates enabled, using latest Firefox version. I have enabled the options 'Open Previous Windows and tabs' or in earlier versions it was 'restore previous sessions' on my system windows 10 pro from past 2 years.

I have lost about 15+ precious tabs in firefox (1 week of my research work). Even in history it is not showing those tabs.

I was doing my research work / thesis, gone through about 500+ webpages / articles and selected the best, and aligned the tabs in sequence. Today i have opened the 'Private Window' doing some surfing, After few minutes I closed my 'Firefox window of research' as that was using 'too much' amount of ram. After 15 minutes i have closed the 'Private Window' also.

When i opened firefox again all my tabs of Research Windows (1 week of my work) are gone, not even in history.

I must be using Google Chrome for that because chrome does not have any issues with 'Restoring Sessions' with 'Incognito Window'.

Hello,

I have a problem with opening 2 or 3 websites. I get an error message which is basically the same as if the page did not exist. It does exist though. I tried a different browser and there it works. I also created a new Firefox profile and I can access the sites without issues this way. So the problem must be with my original standard profile. Can you suggest me how to fix this? I already selected these specific websites and had Firefox forget about them in my browsing history, but sadly this does not solve the issue. They are still unavailable.

I don't mind losing pretty much everything attached to this profile in order to solve the issue and be able to open the sites again. Saved logins would be cool to keep, but I can sacrifice those too if there is no other option. The only exception is my browsing history. I do need that one and cant afford to lose it, which is why I do not simply switch over to a new profile. Of course if there is a way to export my entire history to another new profile, then I'd happily take this path too. Just no idea how. Thanks for reading! I hope all is clear, I am not an English native speaker.

I have Firefox 96.0.1 and Windows 11.

As the title suggests, I just want firefox to be nice to use again. Since its latest update it is far from nice. Too much stuff is set to darkmode, even though I have googled like crazy and fiddled with most, if not all, about:config options to try and restore it.

I will do whatever it takes, but my firefox theme (abstract firefox) must remain intact. Surely there is something I can do in the userChrome.css or whatever it's called.

It is just so very tiring having to fix mistakes made by firefox, that keeps changing stuff for the worse. Changes that nobody ever asked for. I am giving the browser one more chance for old times sake, since I have been using it for 20 years or thereabouts. So please, firefox... stop trying to force your users into using stuff that your staff team or whatever likes to use. Think of your users.

And please help me out.

Thank you.

FireFox has been my default browser for many years and it has been great, no problems. Within the past three months, however, I've been unable to access financial sites that I regularly use. The first was in October when one site upgraded its account access security. Initially, FireFox worked after the upgrade, but then I could no longer log into my account. I spoke to support staff for that website and they said they've been receiving complaints from other clients who use FireFox and suggested I use another browser, which I did and was able to access my account. Today another financial site suddenly blocked access using FireFox with a message that I needed to unblock cookies for the site, so I went into FireFox security settings and added the site's address to the exceptions list, but still could not enter the site. I am having no problems logging onto these sites with another browser, but FireFox is not working. Any suggestions? I would like to keep FireFox as my default browser, if that's possible. Thanks!

I am working on that but i can hook up the ssd i have in that computer to another work computer that i have but it does not have all of my work stuff since i have been working from home due to covid.

Firefox will now only up with a window about one-third the size of my monitor. I cannot find any way to change it back to filling the entire screen upon opening. I don't mean the full screen setting, just filling it top to bottom and side to side. If I hover over screen size icon, I get numerous options, but none allowing me to select wide screen.

Recently (past several months) firefox has been taking every light mode theme I choose and changing it to dark mode. Do. Not. Want.

Once a theme has been "changed", I can never use it in light mode again. So I'm left mode-hopping in the hopes of being able to get a readable light mode for a couple days, until I have to change again.

I've checked other questioners but their answers didn't solve this.

Most of the others topics apply here.You override preferences and other serivices to install updates I don't want or need and more -- Firefox now wants ALL of your personal information, which iif you don't comply, creates conflicts with every other program. I just bought this lapper a year ago and already had to reinstall WIn 10 twice. I am one inch away from going with Google Chrome, which is just as bad but at least doesn't conflict with Windows, which is equally as invasive and worthless.

I tried overriding the colour in chrome.css which works... when I define a random colour like #111111 but it doesn't work when I define the desired #e4e4ea colour. I assume Paint 3D & GIMP are giving the correct hexadecimal colour codes when using their Colour Picker's.

I open a new private window, go to a website such as Wikipedia, and use the in site search bar to search for say "dogs". Then close all private windows and all other Firefox windows, and re open a new regular Firefox window, both my search for "Wikipedia" is remembered by the search bar, and my search for "dogs" is remembered by Wikipedia. Clearing my cookies and deleting my browsing history does nothing to fix this. Reinstalling Firefox has also done nothing to fix this. Every bit of information i can find on the topic says Firefox's private browsing mode deletes cookies and history upon closing all windows, but this is not the case for me. My temporary patch is to remove all address bar suggestions from everywhere, but i only want private browsing mode to function as intended. Thank you for reading all this and i hope you can assist.

Hello all, Yesterday I tried to add another website to the rows of shortcuts. As usual I entered the Title, the website url and another url for the custom image location(optional)

However, this time after clicking the Preview button it does display an image, BUT after clicking the Save button it does not display the thumbnail image on the actual tile.

I tried it now with several different websites and NONE are displaying the images. I do have three rows of shortcut tiles with websites that DO display the thumbnail image but those are all from a few weeks back.

Why is this suddenly not working correctly any more??

Frankly, I find this very confusing, so not sure what is going on.

To connect to the server at work in order to perform over the phone interviews, I need two tabs open in Firefox. The first is for a software dialer called Softphone, and the second tab accesses web based interview software called Confirmit CATI.

Attempting to log into the dialer from CATI results in "Incorrect Extension" errors even though the extension number is correct.

What I discovered today purely by chance, is that in the menu on the top left of the Firefox browser, when I have the above setup activated, there appears a new additional menu option called "Tabs sharing devices", and if I click on this, a "Microphone" labeled drop-down displays, then if I click on that, a further option is displayed regarding Permissions for the Softdial app to use my headset microphone with a "Use the microphone - Allowed" dialogue box where you can enable or disable permission for the Softdialer to use my headset microphone.

What is strange is that if I open this above described microphone permissions dialogue box without changing any settings, I am able to log into my work server successfully (?)

This seems like some sort of glitch or bug which is preventing a clean connection to my workplace.

I would be very grateful if some one could advise me as to what I can do to fix this, or is it some sort of software bug that needs to be fixed by Mozilla or Microsoft. It's driving me nuts.

If you need any more information, please let me know.

Thanks in advance for any helpful advice regarding this problem.
