I add a bookmark and place it in a suitable folder. I can close Firefox and the bookmark is there when I restart Firefox.

I close down Firefox then restart Windows 10. The newly added bookmark is gone.

What's happening?

It's especially annoying because saving/restoring bookmarks is useless as it loses all bookmark ordering in the various folders I use.

I use Hotmail/Outlook email. Lately, I've noticed that when I click on an email link and FFX is already open, FFX "times out" on the second link. I have to close FFX and click the link again, so that FFX is brought up from "square one," and the link opens normally. Why can't I just open a new tab for each new link without having to close FFX?

I use a calibrated monitor profile on my laptop. In About:config, I've set color management mode to 1, and I've enabled ICC v4 (even though my monitor profile is v2), but colors are still consistently oversaturated in firefox. They look the correct in Chrome like they did in Lightroom. The colors look similar or the same in Firefox as if I apply my monitor profile to an image without converting color spaces.

I've tried a clean reinstall of Firefox, I've tried putting the path to my calibrated profile in About:config, but nothing changes.

There are several posts on this site regarding uninstalling Firefox. I am running current Firefox on current W10 64bit 1903 desktop PC using Ethernet with Spectrum as my ISP. I am having a couple of problems in Firefox that are not happening in current Chrome. 1. Page-not-found 2-8 times a day that resolve every time by simply clicking the "retry" (or something close to that) button. I reset my router to "factory" and installed most current router firmware but that did not help. Netgear Support has been unable to help. 2. In current LastPass addon, I have to re-login to LastPass every time I start Firefox - did not used to do that (a year ago), and in Chrome or Edge that does not happen. I have re-installed the LastPass add-on. I have upgraded Firefox many times and have cleared history/cache many times. So now I want to COMPLETELY remove Firefox, reboot, and then install Firefox from scratch. Can someone please point me to the web page that tells me how to properly remove all of Firefox so that I can re-download/install it from the beginning? I do not care about retaining my Firefox settings or other from my current Firefox install.

Sometime recently (as of 11/3/19) Firefox ceased to reliably print entire web pages. Instead it prints the first, last, and sometimes one middle page. The print preview function suffers the same error. Since the problem shows up in print preview I don't believe that it is related to the configuration of a specific printer. It doesn't seem to be a coding error in the web page as other browsers like IE, Chrome, and Opera render the page accurately. Because I don't print pages often, I can't tell with what version the problem showed up.

This was first reported here original post and verified by Mchall and me.

The issue arises with the following steps

   find a cell with text (not formula)
   place the cursor in the edit line (formula bar)
   backspace to remove all of the text
   type in new text
   hit enter

A new line, char(10) is inserted after the text. Confirmed with a find function.

It did this with Firefox but not Chrome. Reported in Google sheets forum title "Why are line breaks being added to cells randomly" Can't see how to add link here.

Starting yesterday, Firefox will not load the description section of any eBay listings (Chrome is doing the same thing). This is the error:

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to vi.vipr.ebaydesc.com. Peer reports it experienced an internal error. Error code: SSL_ERROR_INTERNAL_ERROR_ALERT

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

I am on my Mac Pro, running OS 10.14.3. If I open listings on a Windows machine on the same internet connection, the pages load fine. The problem persists even after clearing the cache/cookies. I need to find out what is causing this, as I use eBay on a daily basis for work. If anyone has any ideas, your input will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

P.S. The only extensions I am using are UBlock Origin (pages do not load properly with it disabled, either), Facebook Purity, and New Tab override.

Every now and then, a Bookmark folder disappears in Firefox on a computer using the latest version of Windows 10! I have reported this problem but it still is occurring. I have important folders that I do NOT want to disappear. I finally saw saw one disappear (normally I don;t see it happen). I saw it disappear and hit Ctrl +Z and it reappeared briefly and then it disappeared for good. I took some time trying to find it but could not in an Exported Bookmarks file.

I have read every article on this I can find, including everything in Firefox. I cannot get videos to stop automatically play. I can get them to not play sound. I have changed every single setting in about:config, media.autoplay. Nothing stops them from playing. I have used numbers from 0 to 5 in media.autoplay.default. Attached is a screenshot of my settings.

I do not have any plug-ins at this point, as I just installed Windows 10 and am configuring my computer.

I am extremely sensitive to these moving videos; they make me feel sick. So I really need them disabled. PCMag is a good example of a site with a million different (types?) of videos playing.
