Thunderbird does not save changed settings

Whether I'm adding a new email account or trying to change idle.db.idle_limit from 300000 (5 zeroes) to 30000000 (7 zeroes) the settings are not retained in the next session. I have tried safe-mode, deleting permissions.sqlite and manually editing prefs.js and nothing changes. May times on exiting Thunderbird abends -I have sent in the diagnostic information through the abend popup.

This is only a Firefox problem, and I am able to use my back button normally in other browsers.

When I click back on my mouse after I am done reading a page, rather than going back a page it just assumes that I want to autoscroll, and allows to me scroll up and down the page rather than go back. How can I fix this? Most current version of Firefox on macOS.

This also is affecting the forward button on the mouse as well, it also goes to autoscroll. Scroll wheel click functions as normal (autoscrolling).

What can I do?

I am using an offline web page as my default firefox home page and all was going well until I enabled sync. Now when I boot up firefox two things happen. It changes the address for my home page file to a folder NOT on this computer (the desk top) and won't retain the address I need for that folder.

I have just tried editing the bookmark for page. At the moment it seems to be working but I think sync is causing this issue and wonder if there is a fix for it?

Thank you.

My mother asked me to help fix a problem on her Macintosh firefox browser. I googled it to death and now I'm here. She is use to her firefox home page search bar displaying the suggestions below the search bar. Her firefox homepage, google search bar(in the middle of the screen), now, once you start to type it jumps to the address bar / search bar (at the top). How do I make the firefox homepage search suggestions stay under the firefox homepage search bar rather then jump to the top address bar location when I start to type in the home screen search bar (middle of the screen). Note: another user prefers the address bar to search, so both options need to be available. I hope I was able to describe my problem well enough to get it solved. Best wishes!

I currently back up most of the files on my computer with a program that watches files and uploads them to cloud whenever they change. I'm wondering if this would be an effective way to back up my Firefox profiles, given that I usually have Firefox open.

I've noticed the article on (manually) backing up profiles says to close Firefox prior to copying the profile folder. Is that just to prevent users from getting tripped up by the lock file? Or is there another reason for it?

My homepage now has two toolbars at the top of the page and I can't remove the second - it says Guardian news etc. etc. The layout of bookmarks has also changed - no colour on the folders (not a huge problem) but the spacing between entries is larger which makes it hard to access the entire list. Can anyone help please?

When I went to version 89.0 today, the default theme was changed so that the title bar turned white when I had it set to light blue and if I had two or more firefox windos up the non active ones were white as well when they used to be gray. While I want a light theme, the present light theme is so white that it hurts my eyes. You had a decent default before, but now it is terrible. Change it back! Look at the terrible image below that shows an active and a non active window.

Hi,

I am currently running FF 89 (64bit). I noticed just after that update the bookmarks had changed. I have a lot of folders and had a Chrome.sss file to change the empty outline to the more traditional yellow icon. I know there were other things in that sss file that I had added to adjust the basic FF displays. However, I have searched my computer and cannot find the Chrome.sss file.

Is there any way to find this file instead of having to regenerate it and relearn the changes I had made?

Why does FF not leave the Chrome folder and sss file instead of seemingly delete them?

I also do not like the black background and white text that pops up when I right click a bookmark. That combination is very hard on my eyes. Is there an easy way to get black type on a white background or maybe a light grey background?

Thanks in advance for your help!
