When I try to create a New Bookmark I find that the folder has already been allocated. It is usually the last used folder number. Also, I am unable to cancel edit, or remove or perform any other changes. Going to Firefox safe mode or other recommendations makes no difference.

The problem happened for the first time last week and it was, strangely, only by doing a complete System Restore that I was able to get things back to normal. That seems like a severe remedy every time it happens. I would really appreciate help with this.

Some time back, I had made a bookmark for a list of books. I cannot find it now on my list of bookmarks. (I have MANY bookmarks.) I'd like to search using the search term "book*.*" How would I do this? If this not a feasible way to find my lost bookmark, is there another way that might work?

Thank you for reading and for any suggestions.

My Firefox browser doesn't display photos and run videos when viewing/reading a subject article on websites. Both just show up as a gray, blank screen and there is no audio as well for videos. Nothing. Is there a setting for photos and videos for display on the Firefox browser that I may have missed in my settings search to alleviate these two issues. I believe my Firefox browser is automatically updated, but would want to confirm this. How do I confirm Firefox is up to date and automatically updates? My OS is Windows 10 and it is automatically updated. Help anyone. Email: bpitre@comcast.net Bob

I installed Firefox on my Mac Air M1.

Synced all my settings from another Firefox.

Got it all set up nicely as I wanted it.

Closed Firefox using its own menu.

When I later opened Firefox again everything had gone and it was like a new installation!

I repeated the setup, and again when I closed and opened Firefox it was back to default settings.

I'm new to the Mac system. Is this a 'feature' or am I doing something wrong?

A white bar completely covers the top of the browser. It is if the menu bar has disappeared. If I try and click where the menu bar should be I click right through the window to the other open applications below.

This has happened a few times and the only way to remedy it is to reboot the machine.

Any idea what is happening?

I'm running the latest version of Firefox (85.0 64bit) on Windows 10.

Perhaps I could get help here.

I can't login in either https://www.icloud.com/ or https://tv.apple.com/

Screenshots of the problem are attached here. In both websites I see the circle as it is trying to load (on icloud, eventually, get an error "iCloud encountered an error while trying to connect to the server"). I've tried to use these websites with Chrome and Edge and it works normally.

Solutions I've tried but did not work: - cleaned cache and history; - turned off firefox protections against monitoring; - turned off uBlock Origin (it's the only plugin installed besides DuckDuckGo) - tried in private window, does not work as well

Is this a known bug or/and is there any solution? I can try anything you will suggest to me, I really need to open these websites and I do not want to use any other browser besides Firefox.

Not long ago, when Firefox was having trouble playing videos (due to Norton's influence), Twitch clips couldn't be played either, and it's still going on.

Hi guys,

I am experiencing this issue for quite a long time, after certain Windows 10 update Facebook on Firefox becomes really unusable, it is really slow, specially on features when there is typing involved. That means Messenger, commenting posts on Facebook, creating new posts etc. But even other stuff is slow as it is scrolling down, going through photos etc.

This is happening on my both PCs, my CPUs are Ryzen 5 3600, and Intel I7-4770, and GPU GTX 1660S, GTX 1050Ti, so I don`t see that hardware should bottleneck this in any case. In the meantime, I did restart with Safe mode, refreshed Firefox, even reinstalled which does not help. I have tried with other browsers, Facebook works fine there. Currently I am using latest Firefox 84.0.2 64bit on both PCs, and Windows 10 is 20H2 version.

I can do this with the mouse, but I would like to use the keyboard to move the current tab to the end. The manual says : Ctrl + Shift + End - requires the currently selected tab to be "in focus" for instance, by hitting Alt + D to focus the address bar, and then Shift + Tab until you reach the browser tab bar ... This doesn't seem to work, or it doesn't work when you have 1.000 tabs open ... Trying to open the right-click menu using the keyboard doesn't work either (or cannot be done ?). If I could open the right-click menu of the tab, then I would be able to navigate to Move Tab -> Move to End, but that can't be done either ...  :-( Any help ? Would this be inspiration for a feature request ? Or defect fix ? (short-cut key doesn't work)
