My bookmarks and most history no longer accessable. They may be gone. I need to know where they are stored so I can make sure they are gone. If they are gone I have other machines which do have bookmarks. I think there is a way to copy the bookmarks from one system to another. Hopefully that information is in the main default-release and I can move a copy to the lacking bookmarks closer to the machine with no bookmarks and import what I need?

I've been searching for how to disable the little dropdown menus with emails you could use for a field, but I can't find anything.

I made a clean install and found someone that had the solution, but I can't find this post anymore no matter how much I search.

There's no forms and autofill section for me under the privacy section of settings, whether it's been removed through updates or it's a bug for me (which would be weird if it were both the case on my current PC and the old one) I don't know.

All I know is that the solution involved going to about:config and changing a setting in there.

I don't want to just delete the entry by doing down arrow and delete.

Any help is appreciated!

I'm a new user to Firefox on my Mac. I don't see a Share button that would allow me to email the current web site to a friend. Looking for help on the web, I see:

To access the feature, simply click on the Share button on the toolbar. The Share button looks like a paper airplane and is located to the right of the address bar.

but I just don't see any button or icon that looks like that.

I went into View > Toolbars > Customize Toolbars and didn't see a way to add a Share button. I clicked 'Restore to Defaults' and that didn't help.

I know I can choose File > Share from the menu but I'd rather have a toolbar item.

Here's a snapshot of my toolbar and address bar.

Thanks for any help.

Twice in the past 2-3 weeks I have had to restart the computer, Linux Mint 21.2 Firefox 124(when updated in the past couple of days), due to the mouse freezing up and not being able to move the mouse on the screen. That's not the current problem, but it might help direct things to the final solution.

After the most recent reboot last night now I'm having a rather problem. The up/down arrow keys are no longer scroll me up and down a webpage like they always have in the past. Instead of doing smooth scrolling like they always use to, now they are scrolling me up and down the links on a web page. For example, if I were to be on youtube it would first want to scroll me down the left side links before taking me through each and every video link, when the page goes to load in more videos than it wants to go back and scroll me down the left side links again. It acts like it is taking me through the html code, line by line, instead of scrolling me smoothly down the webpage. The only way I can scroll smoothly down the webpage is to use the mouse on the scrollbar on the right side. It does this both in normal mode and in Troubleshooting Mode.

I have checked and beret scrolling is false as well as beret_shortcut. Use autoscrolling, use smooth scrolling, show scrollbars and always underline links are all clicked on. Always use the cursor keys to navigate within pages is unclicked. I have tried different changes between clicking on and unclicking those options with no change being noticed.

How can I get this back to the way it used to run?

In previous versions of FFx, toggling to Reader view used the same font I'd chosen in Settings / wherever. Now it's something else, in boldface with no distinctions made in original view (italics, not italics, etc). & there doesn't seem to be any way I can control fonts in Reader.

Any suggestions? In plain English, please, I am NOT a programmer or computer professional, just a regular human trying to use this new version that seems to have broken everything I liked about FFx.

I'm having a pretty frustrating developer experience using Firefox to help develop an app that uses Server Sent Events. Now, I'm not sure if I'm the one at fault or if it's something to do with Firefox itself (most likely I'm missing a config option somewhere).

Anways, the issue I'm having is that I cannot seem to be able to see Server Sent Events in the network tab of dev tools. This is specifically what I'm looking for: https://firefox-source-docs.mozilla.org/devtools-user/network_monitor/inspecting_server-sent_events/index.html

I'm testing this functionality by going to https://sse.dev/testpage.html, opening my network tab. I can see the connection to the SSE endpoint however, all I see is "No headers for this request" or "No response data for this request". I know it's getting the data through the event source because I can do stuff with the data. I've also tested this in Edge and everything appears in their network tab as expected which, makes me feel like this is more of a browser-specific issue. Again, I feel like it's me missing a config somewhere or having a privacy setting set which is somehow messing with the event stream.

Any help is appreciated... I guess I got to use Edge for the time being 🤮

I recently experienced a 1-minute power outage, during which my PC abruptly shut down while I was working. One of the joys of living remotely. However, an unexpected event occurred, causing all my add-ons to vanish. I am very concerned, firstly because that can happen, and secondly, what happens to the data stored? Even after the PC rebooted, my Mozilla account remained logged in. I didn't need to log back in to get to this support page. The sync is on and has been completed. The most inconvenient part is that I was working on some integrations between Obsidian, Readwise, Logsec, Omnivore, and syncing accounts when the outage happened. Because of memory issues, I now need to remember which extensions I had and recently added, which is why the aforementioned apps are necessary. The add-on I am most concerned about is my password manager extension. I've made logging in feel like trying to get into a fortress, so having to go through that again is giving me anxiety. Anyone know how or why add-ons could possibly disappear like that? I'm a long-term "want to use Firefox" person, but this sort of thing really turns me off, and I hate all the other browsers because of their lack of security. I'd love to hear your thoughts on fixing this and what I can do if it happens again in the future.
