I have two Firefox Bookmarks items in my Menu Bar that are duplicates. The titles are slightly different but they are the same G Mail acct. I'd like to delete one of them from the Firefox Bookmarks Menu Bar. If I recall there may be an issue of them both being deleted if I try to only delete one? Thank you

A folder in Bookmarks disappeared AGAIN! This is ridiculous. Every now and then Firefox loses a Bookmark folder. To make matters worse, I can waste a lot of time trying to find it and get no where. I have better things to do than trying to find lost Bookmark folders! How can I easily find the very important Bookmark folder quickly? Undo does not help.

How can I stop pdf files associations continually changing to Firefox?

Since the latest versions of Firefox--say, the last month or so--Firefox continues to override and change my preferred file association for pdf files. I have gone in through the Windows 10 Start/Settings/Apps to change the file association for pdf files to my Adobe Acrobat Pro, but within a few hours Firefox automatically changes it back, system-wide, to Firefox. This is quite frustrating, to say the least. I have tried the Options within Firefox, and choose (as I do for most files) to "Ask Me First" upon opening, but don't find any further file association info there. Nevertheless, even when viewing my files within Windows Explorer (File Explorer), I cannot keep my chosen files association of Adobe Acrobat Pro, as it continually reverts to Firefox.

How can I disable this behavior of Firefox 80.0.1 that is overriding my preference? Or is it a bug that can be fixed?

Thank you for your assistance.... Enten

Hi,

Im struggling like hours on getting a http connection to a private webservice of mine... Firefox always redirect me to https://example.com instead of http://example.com.

I tried following solutions: - delete whole cache - Start Firefox in Safe mode - removing all extensions - setting this in about:config:

   security.insecure_field_warning.contextual.enabled = false
   security.certerrors.permanentOverride = false
   network.stricttransportsecurity.preloadlist = false
   security.enterprise_roots.enabled = true 
   browser.urlbar.autoFill to false in about:config.
   browser.cache.check_doc_frequency from 3 to 1. 
   urlbar.autofill false
   browser.urlbar.trimURLs false

- restarting firefox - restarting computer

And still this damn brower redirects me to a https site!!!!!!!!!

Searching for a solution since 4 hours. Please help me!
