I used to be able until very recently go to MENU > LIBRARY>Bookmarks: which would 'split' giving me three (?) choices, one of which was showing a bookmark side bar. I seem to not have that choice any longer ... or do I and I just don't know how to select it? Thank you.

If the vertical image is long, scroll down and it will be black and the image will not be visible. Only version 93 has bugs. If you left-click the mouse in the space next to the image, the image will appear again. But if I keep scrolling down, it's just black again.

First of all I don't know if i choose the correct topic.

My issue is that I like to help researchers by filling/doing their online quiz/forms/etc. They usually use this site for reflex test: https://pavlovia.org/ My problem is that you need to strike a key. Whenever I do that the f3 research box appears ... It's fun when you need to close it for a reflex test where seconds do matter. Is there a way to disable it ?

I have a recurring problem with Firefox warning me that a perfectly safe https site is http and temporarily barring access until I confirm that I want to risk proceeding to it. The latest site to get this treatment is https://bloctel.gouv.fr/, which is a French government website. This is extremely annoying. How can I fix it?

I'm using a web app that uses this shortcut (alt+shift+s), but every time I press this to trigger that action annoying menu bar pops up with the history panel opened. I've already disabled menu opening while pressing alt by making [ui.key.menuAccessKeyFocuses to false] . Now how do I disable this? Also, It would be great if I could remove this menu bar altogether permanently.

I'm trying to find a way to change where Firefox 93 stores my temporary internet files away from C Drive to a different drive to reduce lag. I found an article on how to do it using the about:config utility, but I can't do what that article describes — right-clicking in the about:config browser does not give me the option to create a new string; there is no "new" option.

How do I change this in Firefox 93?

I delete my cookies the end of each session. So when I reload FF and revisit any sites that require cookies I have to click to accept, which is tiresome. Can I set certain trusted sites to automatically recreate cookies? I find the 'manage data' panel very confusing - I'm not sure what I'm blocking and allowing. Please see screen shot of settings.

I am trying to restore the take screenshot icon. The suggested remedies do not work. Take screen shot does not come up as an option, no matter on which part of the page I right press. Also, control + shift + s does not work. Finally, the screenshot icon does not show up in my list of icons to be transferred to the toolbar, so I can't do that either. How do I fix this? I use screenshot a lot, especially the option to take a shot of part of a screen.

Please help recover my many passwords. Win7 had gotten corrupted; so I had a shop install Win10.

In prep, I did a backup with the SW bundled with my USB Seagate BackupPlus. On the same drive, I did a backup with Win7's backup tool. I exported bookmarks.html and bookmarks.json to the drive being upgraded.

The shop saved & restored ONLY the tree under users/ ... and likely, not all of that. Searching what was restored yields no match for "appdata", "prefs.js", etc

Worse, the backups I took with the Win7 and Seagate tools also seem to lack the files needed to restore my many site passwords. I'm hoping you can tell me how to recover those passwords.

When I do a search in the Sidebar, the bookmarks always appear to be in same order as they are in the main menu with the newest at the bottom of the list.

However I just added 4 new ones & 3 are at the bottom but 1 is at the top in the Sidebar. Yet all are at the bottom in the main menu. I’d like to keep all 4 grouped together but cannot drag any of them into place.

I deleted & re-saved the bookmarks. When saving, the first one added appears at the top of the Sidebar search list & the other 3 at the bottom.

Somewhere along the way, when I edited a couple of the names the top one swapped places with one of the bottom 3 in the Sidebar. Yet they’re all in their original order at the bottom of the main menu.

Any idea why the Sidebar is changing the order?
