Hi! Hoping someone can help.

I opened Firefox and all of my bookmarks have vanished. The folders that used to contain them are still there and have my custom names, but the folders are all empty.

I'm tried to restore the bookmarks from the backup within Firefox and it does not work.

I really need these for work and need help restoring them as soon as possible.

Can anyone help?

I'm running Firefox 83.0 on Windows 10.

I realise that Firefox uses up a lot of Memory (particularly as it tries to run each Tab separately). However, my Firefox seems to keep increasing its usage!

I can start with a number of Tabs open & (after refreshing each Tab - to ensure it is "lice" & "active") I will get (according to Windows Task Manager) about 1,300MB in use.

Without opening up any more Tabs & without trying to run any Web-Based Videos, over a period of a few hours it will increase & increase & increase - perhaps getting up to 4,000MB!

I've cross checked with "about:performance" (to open FF's own Task Manager), to show the individual Tab usage, & that NEVER totals up to anywhere near the figures shown by the Windows Task Manager!!

Obviously, my FF is fully up to date!

Any comments!

I use FireFox exclusively and employ CC Cleaner to keep internet cache sizes manageable and to clear cookies. When over I run CC Cleaner in addition to the file deletions from FireFox there are also files being deleted from MS Edge and Chromium. How is this possible if I never use either of those browsers? How do I prevent the MS browsers from attaching themselves to FF and in essence overriding my quest for privacy?

I hate the "This time, search with" in the URL bar. When I want to search, I use the Search bar for that. I don't need extra icons that I'm not going to use taking up space in the URL bar. I've seen it suggested that they can be removed in the Search options page. But when I've tried that, it also removes them from the Search bar.

Here's what I want: for the URL bar to only have space for a URL, no "This time, search with" nonsense, but the Search bar left completely intact, with all the search engines I use.

Can't use Firefox on certain websites that have reCAPTCHA. I click the box "I'm not a robot" and the window doesn't pop up for me to select the pictures of the bridges or crosswalks or whatever. I have to go Microsoft Edge for these types of websites. This is one of them. https://www.relaxdds.com/contact-dentist I filled out the online form, clicked the box for "I'm not a robot" and it gave me an error "The reCAPTCHA was invalid. Go back and try it again." So I used Microsoft Edge and it worked. The pop up window appeared and i was able to continue on. How do I fix this in Firefox?

Tell me why I can successfully use Chrome and MS Edge to login and use web sites but not Foxfire. I have to login to the Lions Clubs International web site to pull information and when I use foxfire, it just doesn't reply... When I use the other browsers, it works normally. I have used FoxFire for years and was very happy with it until now. There must be some new functions in the other browsers that FF doesn't have yet. Will it be fixed soon or am I going to have to switch browsers?

What is OpenResty, should it be running on Firefox? Do I have a problem.

I run the current version, with Adblock Plus, Duck Duck Go, and Facebook Container extensions.

New update includes a dialog box that will pop up on each and every download (like you just fell off the turnip truck and you forgot where your download folder is located):

"Locating and Installing Your Download

When your download is complete please use the instructions below to begin the installation of your download or locate your downloaded files on your computer.

Firefox

  • Click the down arrow in the top right of the browser Windows Users - Click the small image of the folder next to your download
  • Mac Users - Click the small image of the magnifying glass next to your download.

The folder that contains your download will now be open."

This my first ever whatever this is supposed to be, created an account to ask a question to which I will get no answer for... user friendly=less clicks, not more... Get rid of it, please... or at least the common courtesy of a toggle switch.

Just recently I've been unable to chat in YouTube channels. This started a couple of weeks ago. If I use Microsoft Edge, I have no problem chatting on the same page I can't with Firefox. When I try to chat, I get a message, "Error, try again." I tried this with another PC of mine that has the most recent version of Firefox on it and the same thing happens. I have another PC with an earlier version of Firefox on it, Ver 82.0.3 and have no problem chatting with that version. So, I can only conclude that there was something that happened with an update that blocks chatting.

I need to know how to get the browser back to its normal functionality. I cannot right click on pretty much anything without it opening something in a new tab. It's infuriating and I can't find the answer on google. Does anyone have any solution? It breaks my workflow to the point where I am considering switching bowers. Have happily been using Firefox for 10 years without this problem. Reinstalling does nothing.

I think the real problem is that it opens the little context menu and then immediately clicks the first option. For example if I right-click a misspelled word it just fixes it automatically.

I am just wondering why FireFox occasionally becomes slow to load web pages. On these occasions, restarting Firefox fixes the problem immediately.

Example, I was just loading the same page repeatedly because of some work I am doing. After about 15 minutes of slow response times, I restarted FireFox and immediately, the page loaded very quickly as usual.

You can see the page where this was occurring at this url: https://legacy-systems.biz/demo/demo.html

Any information etc. would be appreciated immensely.
