In the "Library" window, once a bookmark name is selected in the bookmark list (upper right) pane, the details (lower right) pane expands. This obstructs the view of the bottom portion of the bookmark list, preventing the bookmark to be double-clicked. See the attached screen shots:

(1) When a folder is selected in the folder list (left) pane, the details pane only shows its name.

(2) If the mouse pointer is moved to the bookmark list pane, the details pane remains unchanged.

(3) Once a bookmark name is clicked in the bookmark list, the details pane expands to show its name, location, tags and keyword. This is fine -- you can either single-click the bookmark name to see the details (as shown in the screen shot), or double-click to open it without taking a look at the details.

However, --

(4) Suppose the bookmark to be opened is toward the bottom of the list, and you want to double-click it.

(5) Upon the 1st click, the details pane expands to hide it, and you would end up missing the 2nd click. Presently, the only way around is to single-click the bookmark, roll up the screen, then click again, which is a bit too tedious.

This problem has been around for such a long time that I was hoping a lot of people complain to coerce a fix. Unfortunately, not so far.

Though surely not a big issue, this is frustrating enough to deserve to be rectified.

I am currently on FF88. It seems that every time there is an update, the font gets smaller and smaller.

I have been able to adjust the global fonts easily.

With all available extensions not available anymore, there is no way to customize fonts for tabs, bookmarks or toolbars.

I have to move in so closely to navigate around FF. I hate to ask for something this simple, please provide a option.

I am not able to do code, so that's out. Not really excited to move permanently to another browser but I might have to. Was able to adjust the above items easily.

This has been an ongoing issue for FF.

Will this every be addressed? Thanks

Will not hold a font - I have to clear history and then reboot computer then it's fine for a about an hour then changes to a Symbol font - goes from Times to Times Symbol. see screen shot below .

Yes I have gone into preferences and changed the font to Helvetica now but still changes to times symbols after about an hour - never had this problem before downloading 88.0.1 (64-bit)

Is this known behavior? Has it been reported to Mozilla? Found nothing from a search.

What happened to FireFox Version 88.0.1? I updated to this version yesterday after a lot of nagging from popups.

Prob 1. Try to open a link from email and I get, "Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to input.mozilla.org. PR_CONNECT_ABORTED_ERROR The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem."

When I try the same link in Safari, which tends to be grumpier than Firefox about security issues. it works just fine; no complaints and the page opens.

Prob 2 ( IMO related ). Try to open a bookmark and I get, "The connection was reset

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web."

Again, when I try the same link or site in Safari, works just fine.

Hi there, When accessing history for today, selecting everything with CTRL+A then copying the selection with CTRL+C the only data copied to the clipboard is the URL [Location]. I have Name, Location & Most Recent Visit selected on the header ribbon. I am not using any clipboard utilities so I imagine it's pure Firefox inspiration. Is there a special trick for making Firefox recognise the PC standard CTRL+A and/or CTRL+C? Thanks

hello, i searched a bit and refreshed FF, started in FF in safe mode(currently in safe mode), shifted to work offline then shifted back, as possible solutions. No proxy is selected in network preferences. All that did was make it so whatsmyip.com now says no proxy when it said proxy in use before. it's showing las vegas as my location this time. My real location is hawaii and all my other browsers show this. The "problem" is months old. I have to verify that im not a robot regularly, and certain sites give an error 403, (iirc), but work fine with safari because it isn't using a proxy. Is it possible there is some sort of malware causing this? mac os10.12.6 FF88.0.1 (64bit)

I've spent quite alot of time setting up my Firefox "New Tab" layout with the 32 site links I want and all the right logo pics to go with them (sounds simple, but it was NOT), and so on and so on. Now, I'm wondering how I can save all that work so that if something goes awry (Say WHAT??), I won't have to recreate it again (which I probably wouldn't have the willpower to do). I've done lengthy searching on the internet looking for this answer but have not found one. I have "Saved This Page" under "File" but will that will save all the formatting, the layout, the links, logos, etc. of the New Tab page? I don't know that nor am I confident of that. ''''Does anyone know if there a way to save all the user customization of the "New Tab" layout? Also, why can't I take a screenshot of a New Tab page? The tool icon grays out when on a new tab page.

I'm a user slowly trying to wean off of Chrome and getting accustomed to Firefox as a new primary browser. Something that I've relied on quite heavily in the past was the use of the address bar's autocomplete function to get me to frequently used websites - in this case, the Subscriptions page from YouTube. I have attempted to fiddle with the options available to me, but it seems that no matter what I do on this browser, I am unable to have said page show up when I type in "y" - instead, the homepage for YouTube is the first thing to show up, which I explicitly do not want. I cannot permanently remove this by way of pressing Shift + Del, as it always reappears. I am positive that I have visited the target page (Subscriptions) enough that it should show up as the top result, and I am also positive that I have not visited the YouTube homepage, as I intentionally remove it from my browsing history if I ever accidentally access it. I have tried turning on/off different combinations of settings in the Address Bar options menu under Browser Privacy, I have attempted bookmarking the page to have it rise to the top of the search settings, and I have attempted the use of an add-on which blocks websites from appearing in search results (which unfortunately did not extend to the search results directly from the address bar).

I am grateful that this minor irritant is one of my only outstanding gripes with the browser at the moment, though nevertheless, I would like to know if there is any way to further customize the address bar dropdown results to prioritize websites I have actually accessed before over their root domain.

Thank you for your assistance.

I'm using Firefox 88.0.1 for Linux on a Chromebook running OS Ver. 91.... which uses Linux 5.4.109-26059-gc7455b8ce0e0 right now - but started on Ver. 88 or something and whatever version of Linix that used. Anybody know why I can't turn the title bar off and why the screen rendering generally looks a bit flaky? I'm guessing it has something to do with the display manager that Google use and that it's not responding any of the Firefox settings. I've tried all the easy stuff like the title bar check box and other settings in about::config

Any ideas?

I recently tried to tidy up my browser bookmarks using 'manage bookmarks' and reordered them and removed several duplicates. The tree structure in the library looks kind-of weird too, as some directories such as 'bookmarks toolbar' appear 3 or 4 times, sometimes nested within itself.

After I had finished reorganising I exited and went to one of the directories on the bookmarks toolbar, but it is still showing all the old and duplicated bookmarks and none of the more recent ones.

What is happening, and is there anything I can do to fix it?

How do you have the Touch Bar show word and emoji suggestions when typing?

Expected

When typing text while using Firefox browser, the Touch Bar is expected to provide suggestions, i.e. words and emojis.

e.g. Chrome enables this feature

Actual

The Touch Bar does not provide word or emoji suggestions when using Firefox browser. This seems potentially related to the "Keyboard" setting "Touch Bar typing suggestions" that is not showing for Firefox.

Configuration

  • macOS: 11.3.1
  • Firefox: 88.0.1
