Just in the last 2 weeks, QVC (which I have had on all of my computers for years as a bookmark) is now being blocked with a message saying access denied. This is the ONLY site out of all I use being blocked. Can anybody tell me why this is happening? I can use my Amazon fire tablet or phone and it works perfectly on them.

My system installed Firefox Browser Version 78.0.2 overnight. This morning my Firefox display is different. I am missing the header bar that contained a choice between opening a new window or a new tab, bookmarks, Firefox support ( question mark inside a circle), etc. Further all my bookmarks, logins & passwords, open tabs, history, add-on, and preferences ARE MISSING. Prior to this update I did not have a Firefox account so the SYNC procedure recommended in the open Firefox window DID NOT RECOVER ANYTHING. How do I get back my missing information and return my Firefox screen to its previous configuration?

This seems to have occurred with latest update. I could manage bookmarks with initial Catalina update. Have tried all suggestions, but bookmarks still frozen. Luckily I can use bookmarks, but just can't add, delete, rename. Am afraid to try very complicated maneuvers for fear of causing worse problems. May have to involve local NERD group to solve this problem. It is unfortunate that Firefox can't offer fixes for this. Don't want to have to eliminate Firefox and use another browser just because of this bookmark problem. Have spent many hours trying to solve this with no luck. Hopefully someone out there will have easy solution

Firefox was running slow and it recommended to perform a reset. After the reset all of my bookmarks were lost and not restored. I found the backups of the bookmarks and each of the stored backups gives the same error "unable to process file". I tried this on all of the files. How can I get my bookmarks restored?

I have always been able to move bookmarks into folders to organize them. That's why we have folders, right? So now all of a sudden my bookmarks won't move, I can't "grasp" them with my pointer. It doesn't work. Why is that? The date I noticed this beginning is 7/21/2020

Some sites are missing favicons making the toolbar useless if I have to use text to identify them. I quit using FF because of this about a year ago as all the solutions on here did not work. Seems as though FF could fix this internally as it is not a problem on Chrome, IE, Edge or any other browser I have used. Why can't FF fix what seems to be very simple problem? Came back and it is still a problem. Again all the listed fixes that I have to initiate, have not worked. Why can't FF fix this through an update. I am not the only one who has this issue and it is exclusively a FF problem. Not a computer expert but this seems to be a VERY easy fix via updates especially since it has been an issue for literally years. Don't want to go back to Chrome as I like all that FF stands for, but... Thanks for reading

1.) In Chrome, I have a lot of Bookmarks and bookmark Folders in my Chrome "Other Bookmarks" folder. However, I can not figure out how to import the "Other Bookmarks" folder from Chrome. I've tried numerous methods and can't figure it out.

2.) Since moving to Firefox, I've added Bookmarks and don't want to lose them with an overwrite. Is there a way I can import just one folder of Bookmarks from Chrome? Rather than doing a complete overwrite?

When I launch FF, I want two pages to open. Inside the options, home, I can set multiple pages to open. That's fine. Unless I'm missing something though, I don't have the option to have a single site as home page. I suggest this for a future update for FF. Chome has this option.

I have been using Firefox Sync for a while between my desktop and laptop. Both repeatedly remove the same bookmark folder from my bookmarks toolbar containing links to my home network NAS services. A single folder containing 5 bookmarks. Even when the laptop is off the folder on my desktop disappears, starting the laptop without networking (no way to sync) the folder will also be missing. Is there an audit trail of what is removing or modifying bookmarks? These are the only 2 devices using Sync. This same folder existed normally on both computers prior to enabling sync. I recreate it and it disappears within a day.
