When I click on Bookmark Current Tab in the Bookmarks menu no dialogue box appears and it does not save it. Command D etc. to the right of the menu items are grayed out.

When I right click on the tab and click on Bookmark Tab I do get a dialogue box, but Save is grayed out (i.e. not clickable). I can only click on Cancel.

Clicking on the star in the address bar also does nothing.

Command D does nothing.

I've also discovered I can't edit or remove bookmarks either. Those processes look like they are working, but the changes are not saved.

I have shut down and restarted my MacBook many times since this started happening, as suggested by jscher2000 on the Mozilla Connect Community board, so that doesn't work.

This is Firefox version 104.0.1 (64 bit), on a 2021 MacBook Pro running Mac OS 12.5.1 "Monterey". Both Firefox and the OS are up to date (checked them again just now).

I bought my MacBook new at an Apple store on 08-26-22, and transferred my files and settings from my 2018 MacBook to it from my backup drive, updating to the newest version of Firefox, which I gathered was released just a few days earlier on 08-23-22.

After I upgraded to the most recent version 104.0.1 on my desktop, Google search results infinitely scroll instead of breaking up into pages. I haven't changed anything else, didn't add any new Add-ons, etc.

What could be causing this? I tried altering every setting on the Google Search site, but it keeps happening. Is there a way to revert to an older version?

My wife has an older Mac. About a week ago, a pop-up from Firefox told her to update her program. She loaded in the new one and when she tried to open it she got the message that her computer was too old for the update.

We had to reload the most recent update which had been running on her computer.

Now, none of her bookmarks show up and the bookmark toolbar will not display near the top of the screen as it used to.

None of help items online are of any use because what they say will show up on the screen (such as when you enter "about:profiles") is not what shows up on her screen.

Is there any way to recover her bookmarks, passwords and other saved data, please?

I have recently bought a new laptop and installed Firefox, which I have been using for a long time. After signing into my Firefox account, everything synced over to my new Firefox account, apart from the colorways theme that I chose with the Firefox 94 update - mine is "Foto - Soft". Is there any way that I can get this theme on my newly installed version of Firefox? Thanks.

Trying to open any link from a pdf opens a page with the url resource://pdf.js/web/ instead of opening the link. The attached image shows what the page that opens looks like. This does not happen on Edge, so it is a Firefox issue.

I have updated to the newest Firefox version and the issue remained the same. I tried clicking on "viewer.html" and it brought me to an empty pdf page that just loads forever and cannot be downloaded.

Please help. I do not want to use Edge or go back to Chrome, but I will if this can't be resolved.

Where does Firefox 104.0.1 cache screen icons on a windows 10 PC?

I changed the screen shortcut icon for https://mappingsupport.com.

Then in the profiles folder, I renamed the file favicon.sqlite, closed Firefox and restarted my PC. But when I saved the mappingsupport shortcut to my screen, I still see the old shortcut image.

I also tried going to Privacy and Security where I deleted 'Cached web content'.

How do I tell Firefox to get rid of that old shortcut image and use the new shortcut image instead?

Chrome on my PC saved the new shortcut icon to my screen. My iPad also saved the new shortcut icon to the screen.
