When I select a text on a webpage and right click, there are some options including add-on related ones (e.g. translate this text). However, when I select a text in the address bar my add-on options doesn't appear. Is it possible to use my add-ons on address bar selections? Or is it that my add-ons lack this feature?

My problem is that I must have accidentally dragged a folder from bookmarks to the bookmarks menu bar. It can't be deleted (option grayed out), can't view properties (grayed out) and even when I attempt to to restore bookmarks from an earlier date it does not correct the issue.

I have restarted the computer.

I have restored bookmarks after deleting them all.

I have attempted to backup bookmarks (before trying to remove them) and no matter what that folder won't budge from the right side of my bookmark menu. I can make it disappear by turning off bookmark menu but that's not useful to me. (Did you know that when you back up bookmarks - firefox puts them into a json extension! Try to restore that file - it's NOT even an option! Rather the options are import from this browser or that one - that's another issue all together so let's set it aside for another time.)

I am totally frustrated because I am almost 100% certain that this done by me in my speedy way, trying to drag a bookmark to the folder rather than hitting the star and putting it in the appropriate folder.

The only thing I haven't done is uninstall this firefox and reinstall it. I am a bit scared to do that. I have been a firefox user early on. How do I save these bookmarks without creating the same issue again? I don't want to go through the entire ordeal only to find out something is corrupted in my profile. What then.

Ideas would be help me a great deal. Please be patient. I am used to doing things on my own but I can follow directions. The only problem I have is that pesky file that won't be dragged, or deleted, or moved in any fashion. Is there a bookmark cloud on mozilla where I can just reinstall my bookmarks, passwords and add-ons without a lot of hassle? I sincerely have done all I know how to do.

Thanks for your help.

I am logged in to Firefox on my iMac. I added the 'master password' and wrote that down as my Firefox password, and deleted the previous password. It is only 4 characters.

I now want to sync to my Macbook Air, but it does NOT accept that password, complaining that it is only 4 characters.

How can I sync to my Macbook Air?

Thanks!

I started work this morning and noticed that Firefox was not opening my homepage. I tried a range of urls but none are opening. Both Chrome and Edge are working as expected (I'm on windows 10 ) I have just downloaded and installed the latest version of FF from the website, cleared the cache and cookies but none of these work.

I would first like to know how and why this could happen to a browser - whose ONLY purpose is to display websites.

I do not want to have to expert all my bookmarks and set up a working environment in another browser.

I have looked online and tried all the "solutions" - to no avail.

Let's discuss what could cause this as so far there is no solution.

All was good until sometime today. FF 84.0.2 W10 up to date. Previously, when browsing FB marketplace, i could send a message about an item for sale. That send message button is now greyed out. The messenger button on the top right of my screen used to open a dropdown/popup that gave me a summary of my messages. That no longer works. I have been thru all kinds of settings randomly on FF and FB to try and correct the issue but i cannot figure out what is going on. I have tried turning Ublock on and off but that has not helped either. The only access i now have to messenger is to open it separately. I have not changed any FB settings. I did not change any FF settings myself other than trying to find out what could be doing this and exploring ublock for possibilities as that seemed the most likely culprit. Can anyone shed some light on what the issue is.

Hi,

My Firefox sync data for a specific addon is messed up. I believe the temporary containers addon made Multi Account Containers addon to sync an insane amount of containers, maxing up the sync storage. Now whenever I click to sync MAC, it downloads thousands of 'tmp' containers. It refuses to sync ever again, hence no matter how many times I fix it locally, if it ever syncs again, it downloads the thousands 'tmp' containers again. How can I delete the sync data for good?

When using my computer today Firefox began not working, I would open it though clicking or running as admin, and it would open then Immediately crash, I've attempted to delete the profile files to force it to create a new one, I've attempted to use backups to see if it would fix, I've refreshed my Firefox account using another pc logged into my account in Firefox. Ive attempted to use the "firefox.exe -P" command to force the profile to open but that instantly closes like the browser, and at this point im out of ideas on what it could be. Any suggestions or solutions?
