I opened Firefox and am greeted by using Pocket. No obvious way to continue without activating Pocket? Why? All I want is the original Firefox. If I cannot use it like it was before, I have no need for it.

In English: I got Firefox 83.0 - the update took place a few hours ago. Now I noticed that all the folders in my "Symbolleiste" (symbol bar?) in the third row of my Firefox window are empty! The folder names are still there as before the update, but with no contents any more. Please fix this massive mistake. I don't want to loose all my Bookmarks in the symbol bar due to this update! In German: Ich habe Firefox 83.0 - der letzte Update erfolgte for wenigen Stunden. Nun stelle ich fest, dass die Inhalte der Ordner in meiner Symbolleiste leer sind: Die Ordner in der Symbolleiste bestehen zwar noch wie vor dem Update, aber die Ordner sind leer. Bitte korrigieren Sie diesen massiven Fehler. Ich will nicht durch den Firefox-Update alle meine Bookmarks in den Symbolleisten verlieren!

I just downloaded the latest version of Firefox. So all my bookmarks, etc. are gone. I tried to log in and use Firefox Sync to get all my old stuff back, but after i logged in, it said i had to sync my laptop to another device for this to work. I don't have another device - no tablet, no smart phone, no other computer. How do i get all my old stuff back on this version of Firefox?

From my research it looks this is supposed to work with Ubuntu as well? It is not working for me, is this possible?

Under Options and Search I have selected DuckDuckgo as my default search engine. Recently Bing has been coming up as the default even though DuckDuckGo is keyed into the default bar. I do not even have Bing selected as a choice of search engine. How can I get rid of Bing?

Firefox CPU usage increases dramatically while playing YouTube videos full-screen

I'm using Firefox v 83.0 on Manjaro (Gnome) Linux. YouTube videos in theater/full-screen mode lag if resolution is higher than 360p and cause the CPU usage to burst. This happens for large web pages as well: when I scroll the page, text overlaps and everything is terribly slow. I've checked and this seems to be a Firefox related problem; videos play smoothly both on VLC and Chromium. I've tried all official troubleshooting suggestions: changing to default theme, refreshing Firefox, starting in safe-mode, disabling extensions, disabling hardware acceleration and so on, with no success. I've never had any problems with Firefox for Linux before and I wonder what could be the cause.

I attached screenshots for comparison of CPU usage for the same video playing in theater mode in Firefox and Chromium.

Hi,

I have several issues with my FF that it's unusable for development. I'm giving it a third chance as I really want to keep it.

- CSS is not listed in the network tab - JS cannot be opened in debugger - Source maps partially or fully stop working (e.g. in CSS for some elements it shows the source, for some don't) - Disable cache in network checked still loads assets from cache

Not all issues from above happen at the same time. Restarting the app, refreshing the profile or opening in the private window shuffle the issues.

What I tried so far: - Refreshed Firefox (from the troubleshooting information) - Restarted normally (from about:profiles) - Reset my profiles - Tried without singing in to FF account - Deleted the app and reinstalled it

It is a local project running in Docker, but the same project works in Chrome. No changes have been made on my side. I'm a Chrome user and would really like to switch to Firefox.

For several years I have used Firefox as my browser. Recently I can no longer access by bank accounts. I have no problem accessing them if I go to Google Chrome and use their browser. I am able to access all my other accounts such as credit cards but for some reason Firefox no longer works for me to access my bank accounts. I have spoke to the banks and they have no clue as to why Firefox does not support their sites. Help?
