Sorry if long-winded, just trying to provide pertinent info...


So, when I click on the bookmarks icon, I get the following options...

View Bookmarks Sidebar Show All Bookmarks Bookmarks Toolbar Other Bookmarks

The only one I ever use, the only one I need, is actually the Other Bookmarks folder.

This means I'm at minimum two clicks from my bookmarks, and three clicks from an actual bookmark.


My question...


How can I fix Firefox so that when I click on the Bookmarks icon it actually shows the bookmarks I seek to find, instead of all that other fluff I never use?


It'd be so nice to be only two clicks from a bookmark, thus...


1) Open Bookmarks icon 2) See my bookmarks


Thanks for any help you can provide here, as it is so annoying the way it is now.

Maybe my request is very weird. But ever since the new firefox/mozilla revamp, I am told I have to log in each time I use firefox. I don't know why and what benefits. Its time consuming as after the log in, I need to get a code from my emails and so on. It is really annoying to do this. Or am i doing something wrong and have missed something? Anything will help before I start disusing firefox due to these extra steps. Thanks for tips. Peter

Firefox Account verification problem

Dear Volunteer,

First of all, I have to thank you to build the community in your freetime. I've changed my computer. I have 2 firefox accounts, the first for private browsing, the second one for work browsing, and I use them via different Firefox profiles. The configuration of the private account (adam**********y@gmail.com) was succesful. But the configuration of the work account (s****i@orfk.police.hu) was not. I've used this accounts since 2013, and I'd reconfigured them so many times, and there wasn't any problem until now. The actually problem is the unreceived verigfication email. I've tried the actions below: - checking email working -> Perfectly works. - checking spam folder -> There is no any mail in the spam folder. - adding accounts@firefox.com to contact list -> Done. I did not get the verification emails. The administrators probably changed the security settings. I cannot log in, I cannot sync. I tried to send you this letter from my work e-mail, but I did not find any support address, just this option. How can I resolve this problem? Thans for your help.

Kind regards,

Adam Sterbinszky

How do I disable Firefox showing usernames in login boxes? (not the PW autofill)

When login credentials for a site are stored, firefox shows the associated usernames as drop-down in the edit field of a site login.

Since this shows *all* accounts that it knows for that site, I'd like to turn that off. I'd like to keep the auto-fill of passwords, once I've manually entered the username (as it was in the past).

I've only found how to deactivate the whole auto-fill for both: username and passwords.

Any way to get the old (=more discrete) behavior back?


Thanks!

We have a website with self-signed certificate and when the site is loaded for first time, a warning is given and we click on "Accept the risk and continue" to load the site. This behavior is acceptable as we have a self-signed certificate. After, logging in, we have an iframe in dashboard ( url in same domain) which doesn't get loaded [Empty screen without any prompts]. In chrome browser, after clicking on continue for the first time the site gets loaded, the iframe also gets loaded properly. In the same way, iframe is expected to load in safari browser as we have already agreed to continue(when site is loaded for first time) and url is also from same domain. Please guide me on how to resolve this issue.

Somehow instead of being able to go directly to an internet address from an email instead it puts me thru something that begins with r20.rs6.net (followed by many letters and numbers) and sometimes redirects. Do not know how to get rid of it. Really appreciate if someone knows how to resolve. Thanks

Hi! For several days I've been unable to check notifications and click emoticons on FB. I just spoke with a tech who checked other browsers (Chrome, Safari) as well as my phone and I was able to do both with them all. But I still can't in Firefox. I've checked to make sure I'm updated, and I am. So she suggested I reach out to you. Should I try uninstalling Firefox and re-installing? I'm assuming I'll lose my history? Thank you!

Noticed after a FireFox update I am unable to post picture comments to others posts on Facebook. GIFs and emojis are fine. Tried resetting Firefox and deleting extensions. No change. Restarted computer. No change. Can, however, post pics on other browsers like Chrome. Using updated Mac OS Catalina.

No ideas what else to try.

Hi guys, I have a problem with firefox. The option to undo close tab (whether its the shortcut, or the right click on tabs menu) doesn't work correctly for me, it always open a randomly closed page from a while ago and not the recently closed one.

I thought it was a problem with how I close the tabs (ie. if i click on the x or ctrl+w, or the mouse wheel) but it doesn't make a difference, the undo closed tab still doesn't work right.

I tried looking for a solution on here and online but found nothing concrete. So, I appreciate any help.
