The offer to speed up my Firefox should have included the info that in doing so, my bookmarks would all disappear. If anyone knows how to get them back, I'd appreciate the info. I'm disappointed in Firefox - unexpected outcomes should not be part of an update. While in theory I like the Firefox system better than Chrome, I have to go back to Chrome to protect myself from further "surprises".

Hi there! I'm taking a bunch of screenshots with the Firefox tool but thing is for every screenshot I take there's the preliminary steps to take and clicking 4 time per screenshot is kinda tedious if you're taking a bunch. Is it possible to bind the function to a button where it'll take the screenshot and download it itself without needing me to click 4 times?

I have a few add-ons installed in Firefox (85.0.1, 64-bit, under Windows 10, 1909), but when I open a Private Browsing window, I can no longer access them. True, they are still there and can be seen listed under Menu/Add-ons, but I don't see how to control them there, only enable or disable them.

If I want to use NoScript (for example) in a Private Browsing window, how do I set Firefox up to do that? -- jclarkw

This past week I started getting the Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue warning when I tried to access my email at Comcast.net. I also got the warning on my banks website when I tried to transfer funds, something I had done many times before. This seems to have started after "upgrading" to version 78.7.1 of FireFox. However, I got the same sort of error using Safari: "Safari can't verify the identity of the website xfinityconnect.email.comcast.net" The certificate shows it is issued by "AVG untrusted CA" from the country "CZ" and State/Province "Brno". Comcast told me to just trust their certificate and I was able to get to my email account, but I am getting the same warning from PNC Bank's website when I try to transfer funds. This REALLY has me worried. Can someone tell me if this is a sign I've been hacked? How can I fix this so I can again transfer funds from my checking account to other banks?

How do I get rid of the new menu bar that displays links/icons for "Getting Started" "Customer Portal" and "Other Bookmarks"? As they needlessly take up screen real estate. I guess they came as part of a recent update, but I find them to be a useless and redundant theft of screen real estate. Can someone please tell me how to rid my FF browser of it?

I am using FF85 (64-bit) on a 64-bit PC with Windows Home 10 64-bit.

Thank you,

Charlie

I'll occasionally run into Firefox auto-filling another website address I don't want, but I just figured out that it's Shift+Delete and not Delete to remove an auto-fill entry (a rather asinine change, I thought). Unfortunately, clearing out the unwanted address did not work and the address still auto-fills in the U.R.L. bar (see picture).

If deleting auto-fill entries doesn't actually work, what will?

I've always been curious about this, as well, but how does Firefox determine what address auto-fills if I type in a couple of letters? Does it keep a running tally of how many times I've searched for/visited a particular site and use that data? This would be useful to know for the future.

Currently on Firefox Version 85.0 (64-bit) using with Windows 10 Pro

Until recently (before Firefox updated versions) my cookies, cache and history, were automatically deleted on exit from Firefox with no problem. Now I can not delete them for some reason. Even when I try manually to "Clear Data" and also manually clear all History (all sub-menus checked to be cleared). When I restart and open an online newsletter, normally I have to sign in. I don NOT have passwords checked to be saved in FF options and never did. But now with the new version it just auto signs me into that website. I do NOT want my passwords saved/remembered, nor any of my other info, etc! It is really annoying and not secure if FF is now saving information we don't want it to! What is going on here? How do I resolve and get back the way I had it before the update? Please advise. Thanks in advance!

NOTE: I don't want to start from scratch by clearing out Firefox totally or messing with my profile. I have too much customization to start over from scratch. (That would be like asking somebody to reinstall Windows entirely when something minor goes haywire!)

Each successive bookmark I now save has a prepended number in parentheses, [ (21) ]. The number increases by the day.

If I, "restart Firefox with Add-ons disabled," I still get prepended numbers on my bookmarks.

Can I turn this off? What was the reasoning behind such a number?

If I save a second bookmark of the same url in the same day, I get the same number. In fact, any bookmarks saved in a particular day will have the same number. Rewinding the clock, day one would have been Sunday, Jan 17th.

Example: MariaDB Tutorial For Beginners in One Hour (a YouTube video) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_AMj02sANpI Saves as, (21) MariaDB Tutorial For Beginners in One Hour - YouTube

I have version 85.0.1 (64 bit) on Win 10. I just created Bookmark folders and started moving individual bookmarks into the appropriate folders. How do I select multiple bookmarks so I can move a bunch at a time to it's folder? I tried CTL-CLICK but that doesn't select but rather opens the link. When I open "Show all Bookmarks it lists only the bookmark folders (which I can open and do multiple selection). But why aren't the bookmarks not in folders showing up? I can see them in to bookmark toolbar and in the >> sidebar. Have hundreds of bookmarks I collected- want to move some want to delete some. Selecting multiple for drag and drop would make my project go unbelievably faster.
