MacOS FF dev edition 102: I have a folder in my bookmarks toolbar, and I frequently open all of them in tabs. But that option is missing from the context menu on the folder. It is there at the bottom of the folder if I click to open the folder, but this is silly. There is an "open all bookmarks" context menu option on the folder, but that opens all the bookmarks in the toolbar, not in that one folder. why is this?

MacOS FF dev edition 102 When I roll my mouse over a link, in pops up the URL in the bottom left (i.e. status bar as safari calls it) but there's no indication of if the link will show in the current tab or a new tab. in safari, the end of the URL states "in new tab" if that's the case.

I turned on my computer like any other normal day this morning, except when I launched firefox it was like it was freshly installed, all my passwords, usernames, cookies, saved bookmarks, work related history material is all GONE it's like I just installed firefox for the first time. A lot of these passwords I dont know off the top of my head so I'm going to have to ask my business partners for ALL the passwords... Why did firefox do this? What is the problem??

Lately when I attempt to download any pdf file I get the 'file name'.pdf with 'failed' as the result (when I check the Download icon on the FF status bar). I looked in my download directory and I found these 'failed' .pdf files with 0 KB and also some files (same name).pdf.part. I changed the file extension (deleted .part) to .pdf and the files would open in Acrobat. Nobody likes inconsistent problems, but occasionally a pdf will download normally!! But it fails more than it works. Using FF 102.0 (64-bit)

Reproducable crash in ubuntu 20.04 from Firefox 102.0 64-bit

Steps to re-create: create a new campagin attempt to change the display image using the hover-button over the image on the page.

What happens: I click the "change image" button, it gives me the os file picker. I select the file i want and click open and the file picker goes away. The "progress" bar at the top of the image shows up, changes through several states it seems. Then all screens freeze, and the computer stops responding to all output.

Supplemental info: This started happening after an update from ubuntu 18.04 lts to 21 to 22.04 lts. So I know I was not using a flatpak before and I am now.

I've attempted to use strace to figure out what's happening at the time of the freeze I'll include a picture of that if this form does not cause my entire pc to freeze. But didn't really get any useful info from that. I tried reading dmesg at the time of the crash but so far the screen freezes before any relevent information pops up. I've not been able to find any logs about whats going in previous dmesg logs.

Troubleshooting steps: I've attempted the same procedure in firefox's safe mode. This does not seem to stop the crash. I've attempted the same procedure using chrome and this works as it should.

When I type my website in the bar, firefox puts www in front of it, which causes the warning page: firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.karinchappell.com. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details.

If I remove the www by backspacing it, the page loads correctly.

I've checked the website: "SSL is enabled on your site, and an SSL certificate was detected on your site."

When I've asked around the techies I know, I've been told this is an antiquated way of dealing with it. Please advise.

I am unable to browse to onedrive.live.com or onedrive.com in Firefox. Works in all other browsers on my machine (Windows 10 - works in Chrome, Edge, Vivaldi, Opera) but just shows a blank page in Firefox.

I've tried in various locations, so it's not my connection. I am running the latest version of Firefox (102.0 64 bit)

If I downloaded a picture. from Save a link as. And no. Save image as.

But the image goes down in my file.  png.  To the personal computer.  In a standard photo gallery. 
This means that the image was saved on my computer without a link from the Internet.  And she will be with me permanently.
Or she's still on the link from online.  And when as it is link be deleted from the Internet. this images will be deleted by my gallery.  Just opened for see in photo gallery pc.

Hi, how to delete my firefox account? I have a work related account, but I don't work at the same place anymore. I also don't have access to the firefox account related email. It asks me for a verification code (sent to my email that does not exist) when I try to delete this account from the settings. What can I do? Seems like mission impossible. If staff sees this message - please delete this account.

God, your programmers or other workers make these instructions so darn complex! I was a programmer and I now hate trying to find how to make a recommendation to you. Somebody went a bit berserk writing these supposed help pages.

You need that programmer to put a cursor at the beginning of the line where we type our description of the article to be saved. And that programmer has a lot of energy, so please allow us to search for the word that WE write as the description. For $4.99 a month, I expect both of these small software changes. We save so many articles and really need to be able to search for whatever code we write as the description of the saved article.

God only knows if this is going to the correct department. This website is a maze of information.
