How Firefox has been acting since last couple of updates

I have a number of bookmarked pages. When I open a new window and then select the bookmarked page i want to open, FF switches tyo another ALREADY OPEN TAB and loads the page there removing the page that was opened. EX: I use both regular FF and Private windows on my screen and switch from one to the other according to the loaded pages I am using. When I open a new tab in private windows and try to get FF to open a bookmarked page, it will switch to my open tabs under regular FF instead of opening the bookmarked page in the new private windows page it will REPLACE an open page. This happens a lot with my YouTube pages which I leave open during the day to listen to binaural beat music in the background while I am working. What's up with that? Why doesn't the bookmarked page open in a new private windows tab?

I also noticed that when I leave pages open during the day in both private and regular FF now (since the most recent update)and go back to them, I often have to reload the whole page instead of just allowing me to go directly to something on that page.

I have been dodging the most recent updates because with each new update there seems to be more and more CONTROL from your side, and less freedom on our side of the screen. Is this purposeful? If so, WHY?!!!

Firefox seems to reset to a newly downloaded state without reason. All my bookmarks and custom settings are lost. This has happened several times now and I do not know if it is a BigSur issue or a Firefox issue. My Mac was just updated to BigSur and I did not have this problem on Catalina. I am about to give up on Firefox because of this issue.

Hello, I re-installed firefox and copied the backups from the old profile to the new profile. However, it is not complete - how do I find the bookmarks that were in the "other bookmarks folder" which is now empty and how do I find the bookmarks that were in my toolbar itself? Thank you.

I didn't have a recovery key and my old computer had crashed and I set up a new computer. Now I can't restore my account. In the past you sent an email to reset passwords. This is totally crazy, plus even though a back up was made of my old computer nothing was backed from firefox. I've lost 3 years of bookmarks and all my passwords

Please, please fix the double spacing in the bookmark menu. Please go back to single spacing. Not sure why this change was made a few versions ago but I is NOT an improvement. If it was done in error fix it. If someone thought is was a good idea please ignore them. All this did was make it WAY harder to use the menu. I have found no way to change this back on my own. No settings, no downloads, nothing. If there is a way could someone direct me how to make a permanent fix.

I have started to use firefox browsers for all of my devices: Windows laptop, MacBook and andrid phone. For easy use, all of my settings, bookmarks & other are syncing between all devices. With the exception of one thing: I cant sync pinned bookmarks on firefox startup page. Is it a bug or I can fix it somewhere in browser settings?

Hi there,

I have very important bookmarks stored on my old University email firefox: hgodfrey1@sheffield.ac.uk

Once I left university, my email stopped redirecting emails to my primary address and is no longer valid. I tried to recover my password with the university email but the email is no longer valid.

I can DEFINITIVELY prove this is my email address and those are my bookmarks.

Is there anyone who can help me recover my bookmarks?

Best wishes

I switched my internet from one Mac to a newer one but I have hundreds of bookmarks that I need to copy over. I found and copied the profile document that holds all of the old bookmarks but I don't know where to put it in the new High Sierra OS folders. They are not the same as the old Mac OS has. The old OS has folders in, User, (my name), Library, App Support, Firefox, and Profiles where the bookmarks are stored. - - - Anyone know what folders these have to go into in High Sierra? - Will be most appreciated!

My Firefox bookmark menus are often taller than my screen.

When I select a bookmark well down in the current menu by typing a letter, for example "T", the menu display scrolls down to the first matching choice, but that choice can be mostly covered by the down-caret indicating more choices further down. I can see the top of the highlight for the current choice, but I can't read the text of the choice.

Not a big deal, but I'm hoping it's an easy fix. Thank you!
