My bookmarks toolbar disappeared. I was able to restore it, but it's blank. Using an add-in, I can show my bookmarks in a side pane. That pane does show a Bookmarks Toolbar folder, which has the expected contents.

Additional issue: how do I rearrange my toolbars. The desired order, from top to bottom is title menu navigation tabs bookmarks

Windows 7 Pro, Firefox 94.0.2

Much thanks!

I'm interested in listing what bookmarks are being synched. You'd think that's the dumbest question on earth. Obviously, just look at my bookmarks Ctrl+Shift+o. There they are. But that's not what I'm asking. I want to see what has been stored on the Mozilla site in the way of bookmarks. I want to see what Mozilla will send to a second device when I get on that second device & tell the Firefox on the second device to synch. And not just bookmarks. I want to see everything that will get downloaded onto the second device when it synchs. I suppose it depends partly on what the second device is: PC, phone, something else. But that doesn't change my question. I'd like to list what is on the Mozilla site in the way of synching data. It's all well & good to say it's doing what it needs to. I think I'm in the trust but verify camp on this subject.

I followed something in reddit. Now I have all my accounts signed out. This issue has been going because neither for my Temporary Add-on was working nor the buttons I tested. Is there anything to do to prevent this error in the future? I am starting to hate this browser as updates kept on-going and just slowly killing my browser ( especially losing pinned tabs for my important big projects in school )

Hello. After reading numerous posts addressing similar issues & having no success, I've decided to post a question of my own. I am running the current version of firefox, 94.0.2. I use the Search Bar religiously for searches to sites like google, wikipedia, youtube, amazon, and ebay. I NEVER use the address bar for searches. I have attempted to disable all functionality associated with searching via the address bar. When I go to the address bar, it is because I have a specifc url I know I want to type with a specific destination in mind. Occasionally, I have a need to just go to the home page of one of my search sites, most often it's amazon.com. Recently (not sure which version of firefox) I've found when I go to the Address Bar & type amazon.com, I cannot just go to amazon.com, instead the address bar turns into a search bar. How do I disable this? Its driving me mad! I swear I've disabled every option I can within about:config related to urlb. Please Help. I don't want to switch to Chrome, but I'm tired of my settings getting messed up every time mozilla pushes a new version.

I don't really have a question. I have looked on the Mozilla site for a place to email the developers. I'm not happy with the new version of Firefox (attached) I have to go into History and restore tabs every time I restart my computer, I like to have many tabs continuously open so this doesn't suit me at all. Also the new search function at the top of the screen in the typical URL box is not nice, I preferred when the search was in a box in the middle of the screen and suggestions popped up when you start typing a search. Suggestions don't pop up in the new Firefox version.

I really enjoy Firefox and have been using it many years, I just wanted to share my opinions of the new version.

Just recently, past few days, my Firefox desktop browser will not display real time quotes & trades for Binance.US. Microsoft Edge does display correctly. I then went to wife's computer and it has the same Firefox problem and the same correct display with Edge. I have deleted cookies, cache, & history to no correction. I opened Firefox in safe troubleshooting mode and the problem persists. Yahoo, Coindesk, & other sites quotes do display in real time; however, Binance.us will not in Firefox version 94.0.1.

Hi All, thanks for any help;

My issue is, I transfer a lot of long Word-97 generated text to various web-forums, which contain simple formatting (bold, italics, paragraph spacing, varied 'forum supported' fonts). When the text is copied, all the formatting is stripped in Firefox and only pasted as plain text.

Is there a way to copy and paste a document's text so the formatting is not removed?

p.s.: this is a browser issue, older browsers--like IE-11--copy the information fine (they have some paragraph vs. line issues (now, which is likely forum side), but otherwise work fine.)

Is there a way to paste text with formatting in firefox?

Thanks for your help!
