Hello Firefex Support Staff,

My name is Gloria Hovde and I've been using Firefox for some time but could use help on a particular topic. I would like to be able to select multiple bookmarks at a time in order to move them to a folder. Online help suggest Ctrl-Shift and a number of other things to try but so far none work. When I hold these keys down, the first file automatically opens and I can't select any of the other bookmarks. I have about 30 bookmarks that I want to move to a specific folder but can't select multiple bookmarks without them opening.

If you could please find a way that I can select multiple bookmarks to move them to a folder it would help immensely.

Thank you!

I am attempting to add my gmail email address as the secondary email but I am getting the error "Secondary email must be different than your account email". The primary account is an msn.com address so there is no reason that I can think of that a gmail address should not be accepted, other than a bug or malicious code. I have tried this with the Firefox browser (version 90.0.1 (64-bit)), with the Chrome browser (Version 92.0.4515.107 (Official Build) (64-bit)) and Edge (Version 91.0.864.71 (Official build) (64-bit)); the results are the same in all three. I have included the raw troubleshooting data from the Firefox browser. I first tried this on an existing account. After reading some responses to similar questions in this forum I created a new account that has never had the gmail address associated with it. I do not believe that the old account that I deleted had ever had the gmail account associated with it either.

Since firefox updated this morning, I'm no longer able to log in to some sites using forms once auto fill is active.

I've created a new blank profile to test, and it's the same behaviour.

1. start blank profile 2. visit https://bandcamp.com/login 3. enter a username and password (doesn't matter that it's not real) and hit Submit 4. tell Firefox to remember password. 5. clear the form and reload the login page. 6. try to allow firefox to auto fill the fields

There's a really weird mix of things that go on

- sometimes one of the fields is populated, more often they both go yellow, but blank. - double clicking in a field seems to momentarily reveal contents, but then it goes blank again. - typing in an apparently blank but yellow field seems to suddenly append characters to the auto-filled value.

I noticed in the last firefox update, when you right click on a link, the letter associated with opening a link in a new window has changed from W to D. Is there any way to change this back easily? Honestly, I can probably get used to it but it's just an annoying change, and a curiously illogical one. There's nothing else that uses that particular letter in the standard right-click menu so the change seems bizarre.

The print functionality has changed a lot in the latest versions of Firefox and is causing me problems so I wonder if there are settings or add-ons which I've missed which would help.

Specifically:

1) The preview is no longer full screen. This makes it difficult to adjust a view, of say a map, so that the area printed is precisely what is wanted. The full screen preview in older versions of Firefox made this very easy. Is there any way of getting a full screen print preview page?

2) Previously it was possible to set custom headers and footers on a printed page. This was ideal for labelling printouts is a descriptive way, so useful for future reference, and enabled the removal of unwanted information. In the present version of Firefox all I seem to be able to do is switch printing of default headers/footers on and off. Is there a way of customising headers and footers that I've missed?

Thanks

Hi All -

I need to change my Primary email address to allow me to Sync. When I type in the Secondary email address a message comes up saying it can't be the same as the Primary address despite the Primary address displaying as a different address. No idea how to get out of the loop.

Any ideas?

On Facebook.com I cannot send voice note style messages and get this error message

"You haven't allowed Facebook access to your microphone To make calls or send voice clips, go to your browser settings and allow Facebook access to your microphone."

On another website, when I try to record live video using my built in camera, the camera itself does not activate and only shows a black screen. The microphone DOES work on this site however.

Here is what I have done so far: I've reset the pram and smc on my macbook Granted permissions to these websites in firefox Granted permissions to my mic and camera to firefox in mac security settings Restarted firefox in safe mode, without add ons Cleared the cache, cookies, etc in firefox Reinstalled firefox and tried it all again

Nothing has worked so far and this is beyond frustrating. This problem cropped up at some point after updating from firefix 89 I believe. All help would be super appreciated, I rely on voice/video because typing is very difficult for me. thanks!

Hello

There are a number of PDF documents on my computer that unfortunately won't open in Firefox. Firefox is my default for opening PDF documents but I also tried Microsoft edge and they didn't open on that either. Some of them are from 2 1/2 years ago, some say 4-6 years ago. These files used to open on my computer without problems but alas not anymore! :( When I try to open them in Firefox I get a completely blank document with no error message. When I try instead to open them with microsoft edge I get the following error "We can't open this file. Something went wrong"

Thanks!

I'm using Firefox 76 packaged with fedora 30 but it wont display a video (weirdly youtube does work). I'm getting the message: "this content requires adobe flash or HTML5 video support..." I don't want to install flash because I've seen some content somewhere about security concerns. I looked for an extension or add-on but none of them seem to be Mozilla approved and most of them don't seem to address this issue anyway. I can't find a setting to fix this in Firefox. I've seen an archived thread about this problem suggesting maybe some linux library issue, but it contained no solution. Maybe I'm missing something fundamental but it's 2021 now and I'd like my Firefox to support a bit of video here and there other than youtube. Has anyone got a solution?

I'm using Firefox 90 on Linux (Fedora 33) and MATE Desktop. Before I upgraded to Firefox 90, I set widget.non-native-theme.enabled to false to revert the scrollbar appearance to the system theme, as per this question: Scrollbar appearance changed after Firefox upgrade. It worked on Firefox 89, but as soon as I upgraded to Firefox 90, the scrollbars went back to the non-native appearance.

After the upgrade, the widget.non-native-theme.enabled is still set to false, but apparently ignored. However, I noticed that the other widget.non-native-theme.gtk.scrollbar.* settings that allow scrollbar appearance customization inside Firefox are ignored as well. If I set widget.non-native-theme.enabled back to true, then the other scrollbar settings work as expected. This tells me that widget.non-native-theme.enabled does work, but the system scrollbar theme is not picked up as expected. This looks like a bug to me.
