The "Compact" option under the "Density" selection for the "Title Bar" in "More Tools/Customize Toolbar" should be reinstated. The reason provided, that the selection was too difficult to find, doesn't warrant removal. Rather it indicates that the selection should be made easier to find. Further, there should be a general mechanism that makes ALL bars at the top of the page easier to resize. I believe that for most people, smaller is better because it provides more space for the page content, especially important as screen sizes shrink.

There should be an option to permanently delete specific dates (all bookmarks associated with a specific date) from the list of dates under the "restore bookmarks" option. I want to get rid of the bookmarks associated with several dates, but there is no way to do this unless I can delete the date (or dates) from the list.Otherwise, I cannot delete the objectionable bookmarks associated with those dates. Why not include a delete option when selecting a specific date? Firefox version 92.0.

Hi, the backup files listed on the Restore menu are complete snapshots of your bookmarks for that date, and not limited to the new ones added on those dates. Do you want to physically delete the full backups from disk?

If you want to view/delete your current bookmarks added during a certain period, here are the steps for that:

Sorting Bookmarks by Date Added

First, make sure you have the Added column in your Library window (called up by Manage Bookmarks). To add a new column to the display, right-click any existing column heading and check the column on the little drop-down list.

Next, if you aren't sure which folder the bookmarks are in you can do a general search in the upper right corner (entering http will match most bookmark URLs).

Then click the Added column heading to sort by that column. This should group together the bookmarks added on a particular date so you can review and delete the ones you don't want.

Does that work on your Firefox?

No because I do not have an "Added" column on the Library window called up by "Manage Bookmarks." YES I would like to "Physically delete (permanently get rid of) "the full backups from the disc." I have yet to see a "delete" tab anywhere in this version of Firefox (92.0). I would gladly revert to an earlier version if it eliminated the current "restore bookmarks" list. How do I do it?

Sporadic toolbar freezing when using Firefox

Hello everyone, since a few months ago (I think it started happening on June) I am having this problem where the bookmark bar, the tabs, the search bar, well actually everything in the header of the Firefox window will suddenly freeze and become almost unresponsive, and I say almost since I can still interact with the content, it will just not update visually when I do so. For example, if that glitch occurs, whenever I close a tab the other tabs won't cling onto one another like they should usually do, there's a wide space from the tab I closed that never gets filled. Additionally, right clicking stops functioning completely when Firefox is in this state. This strange glitch was only encountered recently, been using Firefox for almost a decade now and I have never seen this before.

The first time it occured was admittedly my fault and I thought it would only happen that day. I had over-stressed the browser by downloading an enormous amount of data at once, or more so I was about to. I have an extension called DownThemAll, and I like to download a ton of images off the internet, so as I was using DownThemAll that way, the browser started to slow down, then I interacted with something else on the browser and this is when this occured to me for the first time.

However, although I did not repeat the same mistake twice, this issue happened to me a total of 8 times.

The second time, I was on a private browsing window (Which had all the extensions disabled, except for uBlock origin, uBO-Scope, Decentraleyes, Emoji cheatsheet, Newsguard and an extension called Ecosia that acts as a button to get onto the main page of a search engine), and all I did for it to occur again was to check the download page as I was downloading a file from Mediafire. The third time, the same thing occured on a private window after I downloaded something from another website (Can't remember which one). The fourth time, it was caused because I opened a webpage on a private new tab (Can't remember which site). The fifth time, I added a page into my bookmarks by using the star icon. The sixth time occured by clicking on the search bar on my browser. The seventh time, it occured again by accessing a website on a private window, it was a neocity website called "loveweb" that was made by an animator on YouTube called Shadok. The eighth and final time it happened was yesterday and it wasn't on a private window this time, it was on my normal Firefox window, it happened because I wanted to check the history of all the pages I've viewed.

6 times out of 8, the problem happens although I'm on a private tab and the "patient zero" DownThemAll is disabled, and I had all the other extensions installed prior to the issue happening, so that cannot be them that cause the issue in the first place. Additionally, I have a few more extension on my "public" Firefox (Facebook container, OceanHero search, Simple Mass downloader (As temporary replacement), etc), but they couldn't possibly be the culprits as they are also disabled on the private window, and most of them have been installed a long time ago. I theorize that one of two things might be the cause of my problem.

  1. DownThemAll broke something in my browser the day I had used it improperly since the issue only started happening after that fateful day.
  2. Firefox updated and that broke something in the browser, so now I have this issue.

Note that uninstalling DownThemAll didn't fix the problem, which was obtuse on my part as the problem occurs even when it is disabled, so I reinstalled it.

Also note that the glitch is so sporadic and, should I say, rare that I cannot reliably troubleshoot it to fix the problem myself. If I could I would disable each extension one by one, alter the about:config options and modify my settings on the settings menu to see what could potentially cause the problem.

Someone in Bugzilla instructed me to use Troubleshoot Mode for a separate problem, so I did. After reverting back to normal mode, I find that my addons are gone. Then I checked about:profiles. I find that one profile (default-release) has my tabs in normal colors (gray) and no addons, while another profile (default) has my addons, but the tabs are strangely white, which I don't want. How do I get the addons to appear while having normal tab color (gray)?

Since the last two updates of 92.0 and 92.01, there is a major lag issue with my bookmark list. When you hover the cursor over a particular folder or link, it takes forever for it to be highlighted. In addition, the favicon associated with any particular link takes forever to populate. The bookmarks worked perfect prior to version 92.0. Being that I am a WIN 7 user, it would appear that whatever the developers did beginning with 92.0, had great affect to WIN 7 users, which implies that maybe other WIN 7 users may also be having the identical issues with their bookmarks. The developers should fix this issue ASAP in the next update. There is no excuse for this issue to be occurring.

Just updated to Firefox 92.0. I use a Windows high-contrast style as my eyesight is not good, and the 92.0 update has trashed this style. I am having a terrible time viewing... anything... in Firefox. I either need to revert to the previous version or make changes to Firefox preferences, if possible; to restore the high-contrast scheme.

Also noticed that changes were made to the drop-down bookmarks toolbar... the spacing between entries has now doubled, so now only half the bookmarks appear at a time. The previous spacing was not a problem. Again, is there a way to change it back?

Hi!

Every online video I watch with Mozilla Firefox (92.0, 32-bit) has serious vsync/tearing problems. I tried Chrome - it doesn't have such problems. Local video players (VLC, MPC etc) also do not have such problems.

Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 32-bit Intel Pentium 4 2.66 GHz D1 (no SSE3) GPU: Integrated Intel Extreme Graphics 2, Springdale-G (865G) (82865G) DirectX: SW: 11, HW: 7.0 OpenGL: SW: GLDirect, HW: 1.3 System HDD speed: 76 MB/s read, 77 MB/s write

I tried changing various related (or not) values in about:config to no luck.

Thank you in advance for any help provided! (Not for the phrases "change your specs" :))

Recently I have been seeing, what I believe is character encoding errors on many web sites.

As you can see from the attached, it appears as a series of 'ddddddddddd' but if I copy and paste that into Word or a text editor it appears correctly. Kinda random, some sites, some areas.

My Firefox automatically updates, so I do not know what version this started.

We can’t connect to the server at passport.

If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

   Try again later.
   Check your network connection.
   If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

I have three devices, a desk top, a laptop and an iPad. The desktop is running a very outdated version of Firefox which means it is not compatable just to update it. The forum tried to help me with this a while back, but it was deemed not to be possible, and the best way would have been to do a fresh new install, but there was noway to save log-ins/passwords bookmarks. My devices all have the Firefox sync and that is so far working well. My question is, if I dragged my PC's Firefox into the present by performing a fresh new install, would my synced items install ok....after invoking the Sync feature on the new install. Logic tells me this should be so, as it worked ok with the new iPad, but I know from experience that logic doesn't always come into play. (Windows7) Many thanks
