Bookmark Location and Bookmark Duplicates

I've got way too many bookmarks collected over the decades stored in hundreds of cascading FF bookmark folders, so, if I need to use a bookmark that I have not used in a while, it's often impossible for me to remember the location, especially with acute CRS due to age and chemo.

You can find a bookmark using view/sidebar/bookmarks but, neither that, nor the bookmark's "properties" show the bookmark's location within firefox's bookmarks.

(It's hard to believe that mozilla can't understand the need to find a specific bookmark's location. There are several addons that meet the need, but I am reluctant to install any addon that I don't find essential.)

Searches for solutions to this need also reveal that finding duplicate bookmarks is an equally important need for many FF users.

So... trying to "think outside of the box" and experimenting, I found that when using the bookmarks sidebar search feature, the search results can be treated just like bookmarks within toolbars and bookmarks folders.

While its impossible to divine where the found bookmark is located, you can drag the found bookmark out of the search results to a location that works with your current memory rather than the location you can't remember. Doing so will remove it from the original location just as dragging it from one bookmark folder to another does.

The same is true for duplicate bookmarks. Duplicates show up in a bookmark search, and, you can delete a duplicate from the search results which removes the duplicate from FF bookmarks...

...obviously, it's wise to look at properties to confirm that the urls match.

Hope this approach is helpful, Beverly Howard

everyday firefox is no longer compatible with more and more government, bank and corporate web sites

Is firefox deliberately making sure it is no longer compatible with web sites ? every time it is updated i can add web sites to the list of no longer compatible web sites. and they are not changing, so the issue is with firefox. I see in the about us, Firefox is braging about their collaboration with Ford Foundation, omidyar network, color of change and consumers international and ford foundation even referred to it as a match made in heaven. How ever how can screwing up every day of the week be a good thing or heaven ? How is it these ' people ' think their of any help at all ? The issue with the usps OIC portal issues was never fixed, then it was several banks and credit card company's, now it is home depot corporate log in [ not homedepot.com ] also the apple icloud issue, with some hidden page command that causes the courser to no longer work when viewing pictures. So I am wondering how a bunch of deliberate screw ups can brag about how their making it ' better' by making the web browser no longer compatible with high security web sites then trying to say the issue is with them is not good, helpful, or even a step forwards.

So now the only work around is fire fox has to be abandoned as a joke junk web browser and all of those web sites can only be accessed by google chrome.

I'm not sure if it is firefoxs new so called clown high security, how ever forcing users to go to a different web browser is not more security , it is a deliberate screw up, like making a car that breaks down when you drive it out of your driveway and calling it safer as it can not get into a accident if you can not drive it.

and just so that we are crystal clear for years I have run computers on line with NO anti virus or malware protection, yet my computer does not get infected, but how can that be ? the answer is simple, people are morons that do stupid things that cause their computers to be infected, if your IQ was higher then a bug you would not have all of the issues your all having. So what do you do ? you change the browser thinking it is going to protect you from your selfs, when the problem is not with the browser its with you the users.

So how are all of your continuous changes that cause the web browser to no longer function properly a help at all ?

Problem: I need to run different browsersessions with multiple tabs. I sort the websites in multiple browser windows about topics which i need for different tasks. So far no problem. I also managed, that when i close Firefox it will restart that different sessions. But - there is no need to have all them sessions open at the same time, which also costs a lot of RAM and CPU power.

My idea was to have different desktop shortcuts to start them different sessions only when i need them.

Up to now this is not common. But it seems to become a common need. A lot people work with lot's of tabs at the same time and struggle with their resources. As admin i can see that very often.

I assume, that it is possible to handle that with a script. But then i would have to change the script with every change of a single url. 

Does anyone have a simple and smart solution?

Thank you all in advance and happy new year for everybody! :-)

Hi,

              I have problem with mi web browser (Mozilla). I start PC and browser before 10 minutes and i figured that deleted all my history, bookmarks, all remembered logins (names, passwords), and just everything. It looks like I have installed a brand new web browser. I think it will be some new update or something like that.

Thank you for your help.

Hi,

Text in " " is translated to English from Danish. I hope the translation is close enough for you to follow.

I used to: - Right click an image on a website - Chose "Show Image Information" to get to the "Media" tab in the "Page Info" window to download a couple of images from a website. Lately this function is not behaving as it used to do.

Now - Selecting more images from the list in the "Media" tab - Click "Save As" - Chose a download folder - Click "Select Folder" doesn't work at all. Nothing seems to happen, not even an error message appears.

Is this function broken in the newer versions of Firefox, or is it just my installation experiencing this? I'm using Firefox ver. 84.0.2 (64-bit), Windows 8.1, Plugin * Shockwave Flash 32.0 r0

Best Regards Mr. Longgaard

We are facing an issue with Mozilla Firefox when we try to deliver it via Application Virtualisation where the browser tabs continue to crash. We have tried launching this in safe mode and the issue continues. Is there anything else we can do to troubleshoot this issue? or has anyone else experienced this issue?

We are experiencing a second issue where when we try sequencing Firefox with Adobe Flashplayer via AppV, the published application will not show the flash plugin in the firefox options screen. We can see that flashplayer has successfully installed within the AppV package but it seems to be failing to acknowledge the files in the browser. Has anyone experienced anything similar to this?

Thanks

Hi,

I have installed Firefox on my second machine at work, and I find it impossible to use it as it does not connect to many of my company's services, but also on many mainstream sites.

For example, when I try to load sites like theguardian.com I get a window with the warning: "Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue", for others like nytimes.com the message reads "Warning:Potential Security Risk Ahead". The lists of sites where these happens is long.

The thing is that on my other machine at work these sites are working perfectly. I have just loaded Firefox on the new machine, I have not added any extensions or plugins yet.

I am about to loose the old work PC, and it would be a shame if on my new machine I had to use Chrome!

Any help is appreciated Thanks Alex

PS I am writing this from my own laptop and not from the work PC
