OK. someone kindly offered me a new-to-me computer and claimed that they had transferred everything to the newish one. Well, what they did was take my umpteen gazillion desktop shortcuts and place them all in "bookmarks menu". EEK.` That's way too many. So I exported them to an html file/link/firefox internet shortcut on the desktop called "bookmarks.html". Worked swell. However, the bookmarks menu went along. It no longer appears under"bookmarks" on the menu bar. I was able to get it onto the toolbar. (star in tray). If I click on that, and then select "bookmarks sidebar", what appears in the sidebar is perfect. Just like new. But on the menu bar, on the dropdown menu under "bookmarks", no "bookmarks menu".

I can live with this BUT I really don't want to BECAUSE there are bizillion bookmarks in the bookmarks menu. I need to send them someplace (or gather them into a NEW folder, so that I can add newly created bookmarks and be all neat and organized.

How do I put the "bookmarks menu" that shows on the sidebar back under "bookmarks" ??? How do I get the bizillion bookmarks off of "bookmarks menu"? Is there a "select all", then "delete"? I don't want to lose the ones in the html folder on the desktop. I am happy with them being in an html folder on my desktop. Should I change the name of the html link to XYZ.html?

I just do not understand how the sidebar can look perfect but the menu bar doesn't.

Help, please !

Hello, After one of the last updates of november I started having 20-50 processes for each firefox profile that I use. In previous versions I used 'browser.tabs.remote.autostart' and 'browser.tabs.remote.autostart.2' and set them to false, to limit the number of processes. But now, even though I removed these configurations, I have no option to control how much RAM and processes firefox uses - the option to set the content processes is missing from the settings page too. Another thing that I noticed is that for some reason, in most of my profiles, container tabs can't be enabled.

Hope you can help, Rotem.

There are several requests similar to mine, mostly about Windows 7 (i have windows 10). I made sure the "general settings" within Adobe were set to use Acrobat as default, and i set firefox options (as near as i could tell) to save my pdf's with Adobe acrobat also. However, ALL my files - both already saved and new pdf's - now are listed as filetype "Firefox HTML.pdf" and all have the html icon. For my husband's business, we have to fill out state forms in pdf and forward copies to them and to clients. My clients are frustrated and confused that they cannot recognize the pdf's i sent by the original icons, and some don't seem to understand how to open the "html" files i send them (most of our clients probably use other browsers: when they showed up as straight adobe files this was never a problem) I need to fix BOTH my stored pdf forms AND new fillable forms from the state as filename.pdf with the adobe icon. PLEASE!!

In Firefox application settings I go to the General > Applications > Choose how Firefox handles the files you download from the web or the applications you use while browsing. From there when I try to set it to open PDF documents itself, I only see options "Always ask", "Save file" and "Use other". I tried using the "Use other" option and set it to Firefox, but the setting always sets back to "Always ask". I'm unable to set Firefox to open pdf documents inside Firefox, they just always download.

I did read many many threads on this issue on the web, I'm clearly not the only one with this problem, but none of the solutions proposed worked for me. Thanks for any help you can provide.

Windows 10 desktop user, Firefox says that it's up to date.

Background information: After running normally for most of yesterday, my computer entered sleep mode while I was having dinner and then had some sort of trouble coming out of it, forcing it to restart entirely. Only Firefox and Discord were open at the time the computer entered sleep mode.

Upon restarting Firefox, however, I noticed that my tabs were loading unusually slowly even after they had allegedly finished - switching between tabs often results in white screens with the circle in the middle of them for several seconds, and there is noticeable lag when attempting to open links or type in the search bar, among other things. This problem has persisted after restarting as well as shutting the computer down entirely before rebooting it.

Troubleshoot Mode made no noticeable difference, nor did clearing the cookies and cache afterwards. However, in my subsequent attempts to relog into several sites afterwards, I was unable to do so for both Google (via Youtube; the saved email fills properly but it will not proceed to where you'd normally enter the password) and, ironically, the mozilla/firefox websites itself, which claims I do not have cookies enabled.

(Which means that, embarrassingly, I've had to use Edge just to login here and ask this question...)

All the other websites that I've tried to login to have worked, though, so I'm not sure what's going on.

Can anyone help me?

Several weeks ago, because it seemed to be a Gmail-tab-only problem, Firefox Support advised us to contact Gmail Support.

It is now clear that the problem is with the Firefox browser. The attached screenshot shows an example of an affected tab.

Please fix this. Multiple versions of the same tab waste RAM and other memory, especially on a limited-memory device such as a laptop.
