For years had bookmarks in folders showing on Bookmark Toolbar. Today they are all gone. Still in my Bookmarks on the drop down Menu, but not appearing on the Toolbar. Please help. Can't seem to drop and drag them there. Also, the Bookmarks Toolbar keeps disappearing every time I go to look at a new tab.

I tried clearing cache and temp files. I tried a new profile. I tried a fresh install without logging in on account. Tried disabling all addons, running in safemode and incognito. Nothing works.

I need to run speech recognition in Firefox (OS solutions are not suitable in my case), but I can't get it to work. I've tried following these instructions in Nightly, Dev and regular version, but they all end with a network error. I also asked my friends to check and they had the same thing happen. Do I need to follow the steps to run offline or is the problem much deeper?

Starting this morning I suddenly cant delete or mark emails as read in Outlook.live.com. Even if I open an email, and it appears as read after that, if I refresh or leave the page and come back, its marked as read again.

I tried dropping all add-ons (a kill switch to drop all add-ons and re-activate them is still a feature I feel Firefox needs, I have to click every single one of them every time) to no avail.

I was in the process of writing this question on the Microsoft forums (which is usually like whizzing in the wind) when I thought to try a different browser. I had zero issues and Outlook.live.com worked perfectly normal on Microsoft Edge.

This HAS to be a bug in a recent update in Firefox

I am running v122.0.1 on a Mac and since the last update if I open a Facebook Messenger message which pops up at the bottom of the screen clicking the minimise or close doesn't do anything and the message stays on screen The only way to get it to close is to log out of Facebook and then log back in again. Is this a bug in this release?

Hello,

Like I suppose any user of older systems (Macs...) that cannot be updated to a newer OS version and thus locked-in to an older Firefox browser I received an email today:

"Don’t stop the sync. Upgrade your Firefox before March 31st."

Why, why, why??

Why would Mozilla take away this last little bit of usefulness after already having abandoned all updates to the browser itself? Why actively "fix" something that ain't broke in a why that does actually break it?

And don't give me the sacrosanctuous security argument please ;) - I never synced sensitive information, not even my browsing history. If security *is* the reason it should be hardly more difficult to disable/disallow just the syncing of that information at the server end. We're clearly speaking at a change on that end anyway, otherwise everyone NOT running the very latest version would be urged to update, not just users of v78 and older.

Anyway, I'm sadly aware of the fact this little rant or even a concerted action isn't likely to change anything, so what options are there? Any suggestions for browser extensions that provide syncing of bookmarks and maybe open tabs or even browser preferences?

Thanks!

PS: I'm posting this from another older system currently still running a Ubuntu 14.04 version that is in fact hardly younger than my Mac's OS but still enjoys Firefox updates...

This issue has arisen on Firefox for Linux Mint (my current version is 123.0 (64bit)). I like Firefox, and I like its bookmarks toolbar, and have used it for many years, but there seems to be a new bug introduced today:- The bookmarks toolbar is present and correct when I start Firefox, but now it disappears as soon as I select any bookmark, or if I enter any web address or if I open a new tab. The [View >Toolbars > Bookmarks Toolbar > Alway Show] option is already selected, but the toolbar is no longer visible. If I click on it again, the bookmarks toolbar reappears (or I can restart Firefox, and this will also restore the toolbar). But the toolbar now disappears as soon as I use the browser in any way, and so is currently not really of practical use, as it needs constant restoring. Hope you can help resolve this. Many thanks in advance

I recently lost my firefox configuration and now see the Amazon.DE search engine rather than Amazon.com. I have no idea why...

I followed assorted support guides but haven't been able to add the Amazon.com search engine: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/add-or-remove-search-engine-firefox#w_add-search-engines

1) I clicked the link "find more search engines": https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search-engines/. This took me to a generic list of extensions and didn't find an official amazon search option for the search bar. Those suggested had few downloads and weren't vetted by mozilla

2) I visited Amazon.com and then clicked the magnifying glass with the green plus sign in the search bar. Then tried to add amazon.com as a search engine but got this error:

Firefox could not download the search plugin from: https://d2lo25i6d3q8zm.cloudfront.net/browser-plugins/AmazonSearchSuggestionsOSD.Firefox.xml

Can someone explain how to get this working again; I just want the normal amazon.com search in the search bar

Seit einiger Zeit wird bei Firefox eine Übersetzungssoftware verwendet, die leider (noch) völlig unbrauchbar ist. Möglicherweise KI-gestützt, aber noch nicht fertig. Folgendes Beispiel aus der Webseite von Bitdefender zeigt, was ich meine:


Richtig übersetzt bei Google:

  • Glückwunsch! Sie schützen so viele Geräte, wie mit Ihrem Abonnement möglich.

Gleicher Text bei Firefox übersetzt ohne Sinn und Verstand:

  • Glückwunsch! Sieten so viele Geräte, mit Ihrem mit Abonnement- und Abo-send- und Ab- und Ab- und Ab'

Die gleiche Art der Fehl"übersetzung" hat bei etwas komplizierteren Konfigurationsanweisungen natürlich unangenehme Folgen. Solche Fehler sollten doch eigentlich vor der Umstellung einer früher ja wesentlich besseren Software zu der neuen Variante bemerkt werden.

Running Windows 10 and Firefox 102.9.0esr 64-bit. I seem to have affected the print facility so that the contents of a frame within a webpage do not print. The frame contents do show on the preview screen but then disappear when the Print button is pressed and they are not printed. The rest of the webpage is printed OK. Typically this happens to the 'Sellers Description' on an Ebay item. I have upgraded to Firefox 115.7.0esr but this has not fixed the problem. The print works fine on another machine running Windows 10 and Firefox 91.6.0esr 64-bit. Is there a way to get the full print back? Regards, LRB
