Hi all my firefox updated itself recently [v87.0 64 bit] and I have now lost my toolbar that had all my bookmarks listed for quick and easy reference - not helpful when I run and am trying to grow a bookkeeping business lol. I have tried to find how to get it back and hopefully not lost any thing but I just cant find where - not sure how great the screenshot is but you can see there is no toolbar with all bookmarks on it.

If anyone can give me at least a hint where to look I would be lmost grateful. Many thanks Mich

There is this odd thing happening with the Firefox for the past few days. My browser is set to forget history when I close it so now, every time I open the browser my addons are gone from the bar. When I check them in add-ons they are all there but none is working/active. For all these years I had the Firefox browser(windows) I never had an issue. I have manually for so many times: - disabled/enabled addons one by one. - Tried ruling out buggy addons. - refreshed the browser (most times without a success). -> The only thing that seems to do the trick is completely re-installing the browser with removing all residue folders prior to that. And signing in to sync the account. But this is only a temporary solution as when I clear the history its all gone again and the merry-go-around starts again. Ironically I never had Facebook container working in Firefox but now suddenly its working - that is when addons are back. I installed a new ssd with clean os installation last night, however, the very same issue was happening on my previous Firefox installation on previous ssd. I have simply no clue as to what is happening here. Anyone else experiencing this? I mean this is extremely annoying and as much as I dislike Chrome I might need to go back there. I really liked how Firefox worked up until two-three days ago. Firefox version: 87.0 so it should be up-to-date.

My Trend Password Manager stopped working in Firefox on windows 10. It works fine on Microsoft Edge also on windows 10. It also works fine on my android phone. I have contacted Trend and went through all of the delete and download and add the extension in FireFox, but it still will not work. Is there something going on with Firefox?

I've recently found that the task manager option is no longer in my "Open Menu->More" drop down menu. I checked my Firefox update and it's current. Did this option go away or is it located somewhere else? In either case why was that done?

Hello,

If I open a PDF from the downloads section of this page: example pdf (all the way at the bottom) I get a popup asking "What should Nightly do with this file?". I always want to open the pdf in the browser, that's why I checked the box next to "Do this automatically for files like this from now on.", however I keep getting the same popup over and over again.

This only happens for some links (e.g. the one I provided).

Is there any way to open *all* PDFs by default in Firefox?

Thanks in advance.

I've noticed that for a number of websites recently (eg. GMail, Twitter) that all the text I'm entering is getting red squigglies (as if there's a spelling error).

I have two dictionaries installed and do have spelling enabled. If I toggle spell-checking off, then the squiggles go away.

This has only started happening in the last few days/week. Previously the spell checking would work as expected.

I'm running Firefox 87.0 (64-bit) on Windows.

(Interestingly the form I'm typing this question in doesn't display the problem)

Which version of Firefox do I have to revert to that will allow me to put tabs under the address bar and not have tabs the same colour as the menu bar? I had the current version of Firefox installed, but after doing a Windows reset to the 20H2 version of Windows 10, the even newer version seems to be less customisable.

Hi there,

I wanted to sync my reading list via Pocket between multiple devices. On my iOS devices, this works fine but I cannot enable Pocket for Firefox on my Windows laptop. In about:config the setting for extensions.pocket.enabled is set false and is greyed out, so I cannot change it. I checked about:profiles and found two profiles, one in root and one in local directory. The one in the root directory has a prefs.js file, where extensions.pocket.enabled is apparently set to true (contrary to what is said in about:config).

I have done some googling but couldn't figure out why I cannot change the setting in about:config. I would very much appreciate your help. My laptop has Windows 10 and Firefox is of version 87.0. The laptop has an enterprise environment, so maybe some app or default setting is blocking the settings. However, I don't know what to look for, but I am granted admin rights to make changes if necessary.

Many thanks in advance.

Best, Nicolas

Following a hard disk crash, I had to replace the hard disk on my desktop. Restoring backups of data and programs is proving time consuming and difficult. I needed to download and do new install of Firefox, now running 87. But Trusteer Rapport also needed to be downloaded and installed, and neither the extension nor the address bar icon now seem to exist. Can anyone help me get the address bar icon for Trusteer Rapport back in Firefox, which is my preferred browser (the address bar icon isn't there in Chrome, either, although the extension is installed there).
