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

Sign in...sign in...sign in.... What. I am signed in to my Firefox account, why the hell do I have to sign in, change my profile etc etc, to ask a question? I'm getting frustrated with Firefox, it's my goto browser but really, it's getting to be a piece of crap. Too many incompatible changes, with itself and it's extensions. I've changed settings, particular to Youtube, I use Youtube extensions, but regularly those settings are ignored. I'll change autoplay, pop out mini players, in-scroll video pop-outs etc, all to be off, but on the next video or page load, it's back. I get page not found for sites like Aliexpress. WTF is going on? I've cleared cache, I've reset settings and keep getting the same crap issues.

FF 94.0.2 right click Context Menus hang and other issues since update from FF 88

Running ROCK SOLID Windows 7 SP 1 64 bit. Last week updated 64 bit FF from 88xx to 94.0.2. EVERYTHING was working fine with FF 88 except for videos on CNN.

After update when I right click in FF the small Context Menu freezes. Subsequent right clicks launches the same Menu. See attached image. When I mess around with scrolling they go away.

Also, when I'm going back and forth between a FF web page and a file in another app to cut and paste text or images, half of one or the other screens hang.

I'm an old geek and I did ALL of the recommendations including a complete clean uninstall and clean reinstall of FF 94.0.2... I've spent hours trying to solve the problem...

I'm having NO PROBLEMS with Chrome or Opera or any other SW on this PC.

BTW, DON'T EVEN SUGGEST GOING TO Windows 10 or 11. I have 10 but I use 7 on this PC for a lot of reasons.

Like I said, problems began after 94.0.2 update.

Regards,

Chas.

Hello, Just last week all videos that I watched on Paramount Plus worked fine. Now I get an error message 3304, which seems to indicate that I have an ad blocker active. I have tried everything including trying to use Paramount Plus in Firefox safe mode, with no luck. I know this is not necessarily a Firefox issue, but if anyone has knowledge or experience with this issue, I would greatly appreciate the help. Thanks

Trying to log into my investing website (Vanguard)

So.............I log into the website periodically and several weeks or more ago they 'updated' their site with a new look. So when I go to it, it has 'auto-filled' my username and password (just like it used to do) and after the site does the 'handshake' with the window I press the 'Log In' button and nothing happens. Nothing at all, it just sits there. I can launch my (outdated) Internet Explorer browser and do the same thing and it works fine and I go right in to the site. I've tried deleting cookies for the site on the Firefox browser but it doesn't change anything.

So..........ideas? Maybe a plug-in problem???

Thanks, Kent

I usually work with my bookmarks side bar open all the time. Until recently whenever I bookmarked a page it wourld show at the bottom of the 'other bookmarks' section. Now, I seem to have a 'recently bookmarked' section where everything goes. (Possibly I always had this section - just never used it!). If I move a newly arrived bookmark either to one of my saving folders or to or the 'other bookmarks' and then delete it from the 'recently bookmarked' section the bookmark in the folder is deleted as well. I'd like to go back to my simple life please..............

So I opened up Firefox just now and got a browser hijacker, looks like from Mozilla. Has Mozilla been hacked or are they doing it? Address is

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/welcome/11/

Which looks like Mozilla, which in a way is even worse. And this is not my home page it's supposed to open with, I assure you. Seems to be plugging VPN for the holidays. Yeah, right.

Last night my Firefox 94.0.2 was hacked. When running Firefox, it would lock up my desktop. It disabled Norton Security, it disable other installed security software, and it disabled Windows System Restore. The hacker put up a message claiming to be Microsoft Support, with a phone number to call for help. This was a scam. I ran Firefox refresh, and that removed the hacker's program from Firefox, but then I had to do a full repair of my Window's installation. To protect my system, and prevent this from happening again, I added "xpinstall.enabled = false" into about.config. Please let me know if this will prevent a web site from installing a dangerous hack into Firefox, or if there is something else that I need to do. I have used Firefox for years, and have never encountered this problem before. Firefox is my favorite browser, but I am now afraid to use it. Please advise me what to do. Thanks, Jim

I can no longer view Instagram in my browser. For a week or so I've had trouble with Instagram. I can log in but all I get is the grey Instagram camera logo in the middle of my browser window. The app on my phone works fine. If I continue to try logging in on my computer to see if it works yet Instagram locks my account until I enter a password they send my email. My eyes aren't great and I need to view Instagram on my computer monitor. Please help. How do I fix this?

I would like to create Certificate backup since I am planning to install new operating system.

Setting - Certificates - view certificates - selected the certificate which I wanted to backup - click Backup - type File name - Save - typed certificate backup password 2x - click OK

The following message appears: Failed to create the PKCS #12 backup file for unknown reasons.

I tried several times + I tried also Backup all option - but same issue appears.

Approx. 5 months ago I did certificate backup for my wife and it worked without any issues, now I have no clue what is the reason for not working.

Any idea/suggestion?

Thanks for your help in advance.
