I downloaded version 101.0.1 and lost most of my bookmark TAGS! These help me find things in my many bookmarks. I've kept version 98.0.1 in my Applications folder (MAC Mojave 10.14.6) and it still has all my TAGS intact. I can't copy / paste or drag and drop them. How can I transfer my bookmarks TAGS?

Is there a way to create a keyboard shortcut to send a link to Mac Mail? There's a toolbar icon to do that and I'd love to just use a keyboard shortcut. Safari makes this easy. Command-i sends the page link to a selected email program, plus the text from reader view. It'd be great to do something similar in Firefox.

For years, it was possible to click "restore previous session" to get back all one's tabs after some problem. Now it's gone. Have you seen the hundreds and hundreds of people putting this question into Help? With no answers? Has this feature been unwisely removed with the latest upgrade, or hidden somewhere completely unintuitive?

I am experiencing many times that Firefox prints garbage, not what's on the screen. To get around the problem I switch to Safari.

Is anyone aware of this or I am the only one experiencing it? Is this a known bug?

One example:

Prints little circles...

If I switch to Safari, I get on paper what I see on the screen.

My Bookmarks did not transfer over from either my prior Firefox browser or my Safari Browser. I could not find the bookmarks.plist for Safari, and the upgrade did not ask if I wanted my Firefox bookmarks transferred over.

When I use Firefox on my Mac, no matter what I have tried it keeps defaulting to the dreaded Bing Search Engine. I understand it has to do with Microsoft, but I don't use any of their products because I don't like them. In settings/search I can restore the default search engines & delete Bing, but it always reverts back to insisting on using Bing again. I have followed several threads about this issue without permanent resolution. Help??

My old 2009 MacBook Pro broke, got fixed, and now the backup won't transfer. So I need a new Firefox.

OS X El Capitan V10.11.6 is the latest this old computer will handle. On the mozilla.org download page, the app on the .dmg that gets downloaded says it wants OS X 10.12 or later.

I'd appreciate your suggestions.

On the opening splash page (when a new window has been opened) upper-center is the large firefox icon, then below that is the search dialog box, then below that is a series of icons (for me now, there are 8 of them). How do I add icons to this? I know how to remove, but I can't see a way to add the icons I use constantly.

Suddenly, as of this morning, downloading is behaving differently-in a bad way.

• The first problem is that downloads are no longer showing their bit rate; I cannot tell how fast or slow a given download is progressing. I have different available servers and need to select the best for the situation.

• The second is that, upon completion of an mp4 download, my media player (VLC) opens the file and starts playing it, which didn't happen before. It's extremely distracting.

I can't find anything in Firefox preferences which might alter these behaviors.

I don't know enough about these particular events to know whether to attribute them to Firefox or to the website that is providing the files.

Hoping for assistance getting things back to where they were, with thanks…

ReCAPTCHA doesn't load on some Firefox (v100.0.2) pages (& sometimes a 'Pay Now' button or similar)

Dear Firefoxers,

Over the last year or so, I've had to switch to Chrome to load some pages properly. reCAPTCHA is proving to be a particular problem - which I'm told is powered by Google? I could be blocking Google content too much within my Firefox browser?

My wife is a long-term Chrome fan and says, "I don't know why you bother with Firefox, Chrome is much better", but I rebuke and say, "No! It's been great over the years, I've been using it since 2003".

Do I need to change my settings somewhere? At times certain pages don't load - it'll say 'Click Verify; or something similar and the 'Verify' button doesn't appear - I load the same page in Chrome, and boom, it's all there.

Am I doing something wrong with Firefox? I have version 100.0.2 (64-bit). Or is it time to give in to the mighty Google and go to Chrome after loyally using Firefox/Mozilla since 2003? (A daft thing to ask on a Firefox forum, I know!).

Many thanks if you can help or advise.

Hello Team,

Firefox does not play well with how you customize keyboard shortcuts on Mac i.e. Go to System Preferences > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts.

By default - Move Cursor to Address Bar - Cmd+L Bookmark this Page - Cmd+D

I would like to switch these two shortcuts but there does not seem to be any way. Please help me out.

Thanks, Naman

Starting last night Firefox will not let me download anything. If I click on a download link, my Mac toolbar goes gray like normal, but no download dialog box ever appears. I have confirmed the dialog box isn't hiding behind any open windows on my desktop, and I have tried rebooting my system with no change.

Please help me fix this.
