Greetings,

Today, I went to access my Bookmarks, & found them "Empty", other wise "Missing"!

I found the "How to recover missing Bookmarks" topics, & that did bring back,what I consider to be My "Permanent Books", bu the section called "Other Bookmarks" will not come back, no matter how many times I go through the "Restore Bookmarks".

I Absolutely need that section to be restored, for I had many files in that section that I updated daily, that I planned to move to the "Bookmarks Section".

How can I get get this section restored?

Adblock Plus - is it safe? Why Mozilla doesn't recommended it? I used it in the past some years ago but now I am scary about safety

Dear Community,

I would like to download this extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/pl/firefox/addon/adblock-plus/ I would like to know how it works. If I will install this extension my firefox will be check hashsum for the files of this extension automatically? Or maybe public key of the organization/company who created Adblock Plus extension? How it is work? Can you tell me? I hope that people from Mozilla now read this and can answer for my question. This is very important for me.

Next question is to Adblock Plus extension. I can read this information: "This add-on is not actively monitored for security by Mozilla. Make sure you trust it before installing" so my question is why Mozilla don't recommended this extension? This extension now use 6,678,297 people so this is huge count. It is possible that this extension is not safe and these people now use malicious software? Why on dedicated website for this extension I can't see company name? Why this company is not verified by Mozilla? So my sugestion for people from Mozilla is to change this and check this extension or maybe add some information on website for this extension.

So I should install this extension? My friend use this on Google Chrome and he recommended me this software but I don't know if this is exatcly the same version. Maybe Chrome has verified Adblock Plus software and this is safe but Mozilla didn't verified this and this can be dangerous software because this can be not exactly the same version?

Next question is to adblocker. Why Mozilla can't make their own software to block all annoying ads and due to fight with malware? Example Opera browser have own buil-in adblocker. Why firefox can't do this? Maybe people from Mozilla should do this? This can be helpful because if this can be happen I will be not install any 3rd party software for firefox anymore and I will be safe. Maybe I can send somehow this suggestion to people from Firefox?

I hope that you can help me.

Yours faithfully, Peter

Could anyone have a idea how to limit Firefox from opening so many sub-processess, with (wanting or not) are mostly causing that my system runs out of memory and stop beeing responsible to any of my inputs, with forces me to restart the system (similar thing is done by an DOS attack)

I have a staging site for my website which is protected (not visible to the public) and requires authentication with the username and password to be accessed.

Firefox is blocking access with the authorisation window coming up empty again and again and again when I enter the credentials.

So - I have to use a different browser just to access this one site.

I have cleared the cookies and cache, removed the site from the browsing history - Firefox is still blocking the access.

how can I unblock it?

I use Windows 64 bits on my PC.

Hi. I'm experiencing issue when FF pops up new window (I need it this way), it pops up right behind taskbar, which I have on top of the screen (used to it since Amiga), so that I can't reach top of the popup to slide it or minimize etc. and have to stretch it a bit to get it bellow the taskbar. Annoying. I thought it is a Windows issue, but Chrome works well, no hiding popups, just alligning them bellow the taskbar. I don't wanna use Chrome, so please, let me know about workaround. Thanks. hippo

Hello,

I'm using Firefox 89.0 (64 Bit) and I was wondering if it is possible to disable the shortcuts or hot keys. I use Azure Devops to create test cases. The test case editior uses shortcuts like CTRL + B to make text bold. But this interferes with the Firefox shortkeys. Currently the only way for me to format text in Azure Devops is to use the mouse which is very unconvenient.

I've been reading for an hour now so please don't be offended . I know you are volunteers and thank God for you. However I would just like to say a few choice things to the CEO at Mozilla. Dear Sir/mam or under todays circumstances it could possibly be Dear Trans, I would like to offer a suggestion because FireFox is catching up to the worlds most inefficient company Microsoft crap. Windows has more errors than it does users world wide and the programmers at Mozilla must have been previous Microsh-t employees. Our time is just as important as yours sir-mam-trans? I have followed every instruction to the finest detail except some of the details you say to use are non existent trying to set gmail as my mailto default . The last and final straw that wasted more of my valuable time was this set of instructions I want you to follow these yourself. The hamburger Icon isn't at the end of the address bar like it says it is so I googled where is it and got the following. "hamburger icon | Firefox Support Forum | Mozilla Support https://support.mozilla.org › en-US › questions 29 Jan 2018 — You can also get to the Firefox menu by clicking on 'Tools' on the menu bar : Press the Alt key on your keyboard and in the upper left corner ..."

      Another bunch of my time wasted you cannot access  anything that will help set gmail as the default going through tools. I'm being far more polite than I would be if I was standing in your office. Hey give me a job where I can get paid for not producing anything of value  I'm sure you can squeeze one non family member in can't you? I have terminal cancer and not much time left here on this demonic earth thank God I'm going home soon. But until I do I would like the time I have left to be productive and would like to request that you fire all the incompetent family ,members they must be because your just as incompetent for paying a fertilizer spreader to write computer help articles. 
    Sorry to all you volunteers if any one can tell me how to do this I would greatly appreciate it and I meant everything and more that I said and hope someone sends it to the damn fool. These big corporations get filthy rich bribing politicians for tax breaks blah blah blah and you know as well as I do no business would be in business long making just half the mistakes they do unless you got the same perks . Have a wonderful day and blessings to all you volunteers and everyone that you love.Sincerely ARICHARDHEAD (Kyle Jennings)

Hi there,

I've been a fan of the multi-container feature for quite some time, and I enjoyed it most of the time. The only thing that annoys me, however, is that eveytime after I've removed some default container named in Chinese(I'm a Chinese and my Firefox UI is in Chinese as well), Firefox always added those same container back! Everytime! I just want to keep the containers that I've named in English and nothing else, and yet Firefox doesn't seem to understand that. It seems Firefox thinks I, as a Chinese, would definitely want those containers named in Chinese, which I don't. Hope you understand, and someone from the dev team can help fix this, because other than this specific issue, I don't have any complaint about Firefox, which is just a great browser and is keeping get better and better!

Thanks and have a great day.

Hi,

I recently had to "refresh" Firefox after internet connectivity issues (Firefox would randomly be unable to connect to the internet for several minutes at a time, many times throughout the day). A refresh seemed to take care of that connectivity issue, but it did reset everything else. I'm having issues now where Firefox is automatically logging me out of accounts that I would normally be logged into all the time. Passwords don't autofill anymore when I attempt to re-login to this accounts (even though post-refresh I have opted for Firefox to remember them).

"Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" is currently UNchecked, and besides that, I haven't quit Firefox. I've put my computer (mac) to sleep several times but I don't quit firefox when I do this.

Any other ideas? I've used Firefox for years without a single issue but have had several things pop up over the course of the past month that are making it a bit inconvenient...

Thanks in advance-
