I exported my bookmarks from my Win7 laptop (via FF Quantum). Exported it onto my Win7 Desktop, with HTML extension. Then pasted it to Flash drive.

Note that when pasted, the file displayed as a Blue I.E. Explorer icon.

I then switched to my Win10 laptop, and pasted aforesaid HTML file into My-PC Documents. I then clicked Bookmarks / Show-All-Bookmarks / Import-Backup / import-bookmarks-from-html / this-pc / documents

then i clicked on the bookmarks.html file ...it displayed in the textbox. ......but then it stated "no items" in the grey area below where it states "Names Tags Location"

Please see my attached pic.

Anytime I try to use Netflix, a yellow bar appears that reads "Firefox is installing components needed to play the audio or video on this page. Please try again later." I have read that checking to see that if DRM is ticked. I have unticked and re-ticked that option and still nothing works. I try and see if Widevine Content is being installed. All it says, and it always says that it "..will be installed shortly". I have looked around and some people recommend to install Widevine manually, but it is confusing and the links don't work. Please help, I want to use Firefox since I get some weird lag on videos on Chrome.

In Outlook for Office 365 if I click to view an email in a web browser, it opens in Internet Explorer 11 or Microsoft Edge, neither of which I want to use. I haven't found any way of changing the default to Firefox. In the Office file association wizard I ought to be able to associate the file types .mht, .mhtml, .url etc with Firefox but my options seem to be locked down within Windows 10 Home. 'Choose where to get apps' is set to 'anywhere' but I'm forced towards the MS Store where Firefox is not acknowledged as an app. Surely I can solve this without having to switch to Windows 10 Pro? Grateful for all help.

Hi

Running Firefox 71.0 (64 bit)

Well seems Firefox has been messing this up again.

Anyone have the new work around solution to get my tabs back on the bottom again. They were fine this morning then shut down and went out to lunch and when I came back they were back on the top again after months of being where I wanted them below my bookmark bar.

Thoughts on this?

Thanks Dave

Hello. In my bookmarks library I have a lot of folders organized in a tree with multiple branches themselves organized in hierarchic levels. Sometimes I don't find the bookmark I want to use by browsing my tree, probably because I didn't put it in the right location in the tree. I can find it by the "Search bookmarks" function but this function doesn't provide the bookmark location in the tree (and I don't see any other way to locate it). Thus I can't correct the bookmark location error in the tree.

Is there a way to locate a bookmark in library folders tree ?

Regards. j-p

Web pages are loading painfully slowly, 11-34 seconds, some never load before timing out. Other browser (Edge) is loading pages quickly. Internet connection reasonably fast (35.7 Mbps). I tried the following:

  - Safe Mode, no change.
  - Refreshed Firefox, no change.
  - Disabled Antivirus and Firewall, no change.
  - Disabled Network Proxy, no change.
  - Content Process Limit set at 8.
  - Firefox is using 550 MB of memory (out of 10.2 GB)

There are instances when Firefox does load pages quickly, but they are increasingly infrequent and not predictable.

Using Options>Colors>I changed the background to "Black" and left the font "White", which was the default. I wanted ONLY the BLANK homepage black. I have a dark theme made by MaDonna. Immediately something altered, FF blinked (so to speak) and next ALL pages are a black background, including ALL webpages. Using FF instructions, I got back to a white blank homepage, but all the webpages have remained black. I've tried every combination (shown on your instruction page) to get back to a "white" background on the webpages. The "Always," "Never," only on ?? themes, clearing cache, returning to defaults, & I can still change the BLANK HOMEPAGE to either black or white, but nothing changes the webpages back to their normal views - white backgrounds. The only thing I haven't done is remove all cookies, because I truly do not want to do that.

Just installed a GeoTrust EV SSL and noticed no green address bar or company name displayed. GeoTrust support says "Unfortunately, Chrome and FireFox has discontinued the EV green bar display with their latest version of browsers. The organization name is only visible by clicking the padlock." Pretty sure the Comodo EV SSL that we had before the GeoTrust EV SSL did show a green bar, but can't remember for sure.
