Hi,

I have spent almost an hour trying to solve this and have come out empty handed and frustrated. Firefox must've updated recently and changed things so that my bookmark dropdown menu is gone. Now, when I want to access a bookmark, I have to click on "manage bookmarks" which opens a new library window and I have to then find it in there. It's a lot more time consuming and inefficient. Used to just be able to scroll down after one click of the bookmark menu.

I've searched other answers to this problem, many of which involved people's bookmarks being stored in the "other bookmarks" folder and being told to move them into the "bookmarks menu" folder which would cause them to dropdown. I've tried moving them into all 3 folders: Bookmarks Menu, Other bookmarks, and bookmarks toolbar, and there is no change. Here is a screenshot of what I see when I open my bookmarks:

  • To clarify, the "recent bookmarks" that shows up is of no interest to me and would also like to remove that. I don't want a dropdown of recent bookmarks, I want a dropdown of ALL bookmarks.

PLEASE if you can help me I would be eternally grateful.

My new computer is running Windows 11. I just tried to log on to my Vanguard account and the Logon button has no response. Using Microsoft Edge I had no problems logging on so the issue must be with Firefox security controls. I have turned off Ad Blocker Ultimate as well as made an exception for cookies from this site. What can I do to fix this?

I am unable to log onto investor.vanguard.com using Firefox. It has worked fine until last week. I confirmed the username/password are correct (they work fine on my phone app and using the Microsoft browser). I contacted Vanguard and they said they have not had any reported issues on the website.

When I click on the LOGON icon, a blue halo appears around the icon, but I cannot complete the logon. All other icons on the home page work properly on Firefox, but the LOGON does not. Deleting cookies did not help.

Are other Firefox users experiencing this on Vanguard, and if so, is there a fix?

I want to change my default home page to cnn.com. I go to Preference>Home>HomePage and New Windows, and then select the dropdown box and enter custom URL, where I enter the full URL for CNN.com. I then select General or Search (or any other option on the main left bar). Going back to Home, and it shows CNN.com as the default home page. So far so good. Exit FireFox and restart it, and now the default home page is set back FireFox home.

This should not be that difficult to just set a new homepage. What am I doing wrong? Any help would be appreciated. PS - I am on Mac, using MacOS>Monterey.

Thanks Michael

Hi guys! Stripe.com crashes FF. The site only displays about halfway down its homepage, then crashes FF. I've cleared cookies, all history, removed and reloaded FF, turned off tracking protection for Stripe at the address bar, lowered tracking settings to standard in FF, turned off hardware acceleration, and contacted Stripe directly. But they can't help with browser specific issues accept to offer standard solutions, which I already tried. Also, Stripe works fine in Chrome.

I'm using 1password extension, and for plugins: OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc. and Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. I deactivated both those plugins but no use. Ideas? Thanks! Ken

I have been using FVD Speed dial for several years. A couple weeks ago, I upgraded my EverHelper/Nimbus web account to paid so that I could sync and keep all my bookmarks since I lost them when my laptop crashed two weeks ago.

Today, I get a message from Firefox that FVD Speedial has been permanently disabled. I need my Speed dials back, and I need refund from somebody if I can't use the add-on anymore. It would be nice if Firefox would notify users ahead of time before unceremoniously blocking something as critical as this. I need to be able to access my speed dials so I can at least import them to some other app/add-on if necessary. I'd also like to know how to contact Nimbus if I need a refund.

Hi, I would like to ask a question about one of the add-on's for Mozilla browser, it's about FVD Speed Dial. I did not save any speed dials I did have. it worked normally all day, and suddenly I cannot use it nor save my settings to import to another speed dial because it's disabled by Mozilla for security reasons I will attach a screenshot. Is there any way I can recover my speed dial? Are they located on my PC by any chance, I cannot find them in any Mozilla folders? Would be really great if you could help me with this.

Thank you. Violeta

Hello, There is a particular website that will not load even though the padlock icon is shown as Secure and the site is verified. I had the same problem in Chrome, but there initially the website was shown as Not Secure. But somehow I fixed it in the Chrome Settings by making the website an "exception". Can you suggest how I can make a similar setting change in Firefox? I copied the "Troubleshooting Information" text into the field below.

One of the latest FF updates broke my workflow. (https://xkcd.com/1172/) I'm using the browser in full-screen mode all the time (13" doesn't provide that much of vertical space), and now it shots down every time I tap ESC — which, as you may imagine, I do a lot. Don't like being that guy, but this _really_ breaks the flow. Could you tell, is it 1) intentional change; 2) and configurable behavior. What can I do to revert this particular thing?
