I like to keep my sidebar open with a list of my bookmarks because I have a LOT of them. I have always kept it open and then today for some reason after a reboot of my machine, Firefox will NOT keep the sidebar open permanently. I can see the sidebar button on the address bar, and pressing this button will reopen the sidebar, but I don't want to have to reopen it all the time because it doesn't save my size settings. I have looked at the JSON file where this setting is supposedly stored and nothing looks wrong. I even deleted this file (after making a backup) and nothing changed.

How do I get my sidebar to stay open so when I start up a new window, it is already open and I don't need to use the button or the keybind?

The following content is translated using GPT machine translation. Dear Firefox team,

I encountered a problem while using the Firefox Sync service. After registering an account with one of my email addresses, I tried to log into this account on another device, but it prompted me to register again. After following the instructions and registering, I found that both Firefox accounts are associated with the same email, but they cannot be linked together. Later, I tried using a different email address, but the same issue occurred. Finally, I attempted to log in with Google, only to discover that one of the devices does not have the option to log in with Google. I suspect this might be the reason why I cannot use Sync. The Firefox version on this device is 128.02, running on Win10.

Looking forward to your response. Wishing you a pleasant day.

• That my email was visible all this time on the platform during this periode of 03 and a half years very malicious people targeting me with daily spam on my email box, I judge that I have the right to request a deletion because of the nature of private law that I judge has not been maintained by the best browser in the world. • I was informed by pure chance by an anonymous message from a person called "Chris H" who showed me the correct method to change this error in any case this person had the courage to address several people so that there is a strong resolution that makes people react to solve the problem.

With my most sincere greetings for your company "Mozilla" that I have admired since the beginning of the internet thank you for agreeing to delete this topic because if there is not a solution to delete my email from the internet then the only way is to delete the topic in question thank you

When I'm composing a message there, and copy some text from i.e. that thread page, this thread page, a google search, etc. in the Firefox browser, and try to paste it into my message, nothing happens.

However, If I paste the item elsewhere, i.e. in my test editor, and copy it from there, then I can paste it into the answers.microsoft.com. thread message.

I initially thought this was some Microsoft site restriction, but I don't experience this in Chrome. Not only can I paste into a thread there, but I can copy something on that page and paste it into that Microsoft thread in Firefox.

So I suppose. strictly speaking, this is a pasting problem.

Here's an example of a thread there link text

Hello! I accidentally clicked to restore default setting in the customize toolbar menu, and now all of my tab/address bar/bookmark bar setting and locations are different and I don't like it at all. Previously, the address bar was above the tabs and the full length of the window. Now the tabs are at the top and the address bar is on the same bar as the bookmarks I have saved to the bookmark bar. The address bar goes full length if I remove the bookmark bar but I want to have both on the screen at the same time, on their own bar, as I did before. I have looked through the all of the settings and customize options, and can't find anything that will move my address bar to the top above the tabs, or a way to keep the address bar and bookmark bar open and available separately. Help! Thanks. :)

Something isn't right with Firefox formatting especially when I'm in my Email system and Facebook and probably others . . . not all of the marker and colors are appearing but the photos look OK.

For example, what I am typing here . . . the letters are not a consistent "black" . . . some letters look sort of faint while some are full black and OK. Kind of hard to describe but it indicates that something is not completely working properly.

If you can, please call me at [edited] and/or Email: [edited]

problem when loading local files via "Open All as a Tree", using Tree Style Tab

Hello, I need to preserve the tree structure of my tabs between Firefox sessions. For this I use the following process : 1) While Tree Style Tab is displayed in the sidebar, I "Select All Tabs" ; then I "Bookmark Selected Trees" ; this creates a bookmark folder (let's name it "2024-07-24 -- Foobar") containing all my tabs, and the tree structure is preserved thanks to the ">>>" TST adds in font of the bookmark names.

2) Now, in another session of Firefox, I display the Bookmarks in the sidebar, andI I "Open all as a Tree" the folder "2024-07-24 -- Foobar". All the tabs are loaded, as well as the tree structure, which can be verified when Tree Style Tab is displayed in the sidebar.

Well, till now everything works fine, as long as tabs concern web pages. But when I tried the same process with tabs showing local files ("file:///D:/.../..."), things went wrong : Firefox prefixes ALL my file names with "about:blank?" ("about:blank?file:///D:/.../..." is displayed in the search bar), and all the tab show a blank page.

I suspect Firefox cannot load the local files, as it generally shows the "about:blank" page when it cannot load a page. But, if I try to "Open in new Tab" an individual bookmark contained in the folder "2024-07-24 -- Foobar", the local file is correctly loaded and displayed. So the problem seems to be linked to the interaction between TST and Firefox (but, as I said previously, only for local files, not for web pages).

First image : folder-creation.png : - upper sidebar : TST shows the tree structure - lower sidebar : the bokmark folder "2024-07-24 -- Foobar" has been created by "Bookmark Selected Trees"

Second image : folder-loading.png - after "Open all as a Tree" on the folder "2024-07-24 -- Foobar", all the local file bookmarks are loaded as a blank page.

Thanks to anybody who can provide some help.

I know it takes just two mouse clicks to open the About dialog, but I'd like to bookmark it so when I check my daily bookmarks by right-clicking a folder and clicking "Open All Bookmarks", it would be displayed. This would be a convenient, albeit forceful, way to keep Firefox up-to-date. The About dialog isn't modal, so that shouldn't be an issue.
