I followed the instructions about how to put my bookmarks in alpha order but it didnt work so what is the correct way to do it in alpha order a-z

I also noticed this fix in the forum- Chosen solution by philipp

hello, the view menu in the library doesn't change the arrangement of bookmarks themselves (but only allows you to temporarily view them sorted by certain criteria). in order to organize them alphabetically, right-click a bookmarks folder & select "sort by name".

but there is no sort by name in the droip down box when I right click a bookmarks folder, but I eventually found the folder and done it as sort by name showed so I click on it and closed the bookmark, then opened again but did not change?

I installed 17.0.1 soon after it was released. Worked fine; worked fine yesterday.

Today when I start 17.0.1 a window pops up "Abine initialization error Please close Internet Explorer (sic!) to complete initialization. Cancel to continue initialization later. [Cancel] [OK]"

OK button closes window and pops up another: "Abine initialization cancelled Restart FireFox (sic) to complete initialization and use Abine."

Cancel button pops up first window again. After a few of these, the second window is popped up instead.

.......

Tools Add-ons Taco Disable, followed by Remove gets the grey bar with the text saying that Taco has been removed. Exiting and restarting Firefox repeats the behavior above.

Against your advice, I tried installing 16.0.2 over 17.01. 16.0.2 now crashes every time. I have reinstalled 17.0.1 Behavior is as above.

........

I suggest that, once this problem is solved, Mozilla reexamine the approval of add-ons from Abine. This is not the first time that Abine has arranged to have a Firefox add-in that can not be removed.

Cordially, Joaquin

The context menus when I click on File, Edit, History, Bookmarks etc. are invisible, you can see an outline of the menu but cannot see anything in it , same thing with right click context menus, occasionally they will blink between visible and invisible but 90% of the time they are just invisible. I can still click on selections or bookmarks but I have to guess where they are.

I always used to be able to search and retrieve password -- but the UI has changed recently and whatever I search for nothing is returned; but for many sites it still auto fills in my name/password so they are there. I've tried searching for anyone else having this problem but can't find anything -- can't believe I'm alone though...

Do I just down grade -- or is there anything else I can do to get functionality back?

Have https://www.google.com/ set as home page.

What I get: Go to a website

What I do: click Bookmarks>Google url link

Result: https://www.google.com

Go to a website does result in Google home page loading, but it appears to be loaded locally, not via an internet connection. Have Flagfox installed as an add-on, but this does not load until I do step 2, and only then is any activity seen in the lower left hand corner of the browser as the Google page loads.

Odd thing is, without an active internet connection, FF reports page not found error and Google is not displayed.

Note that step 3 is missing a backslash at the end of the url, even tho it is set and entered properly in Options for General>Startup.  ???

A https connection should also be green if valid, and I am not seeing that on most https sites. GRC.com does show this green color, but that is the only one that seems to work for me. Clicking the lock icon does give me vendor ownership information; the others state 'unknown'. Example: "You are connected to mozilla.org which is run by (unknown) Verified by GeoTrust, Inc. Your connection to this website is encrypted to prevent eavesdropping.

After viewing imbedded videos for a time, the video ends up going away, but I still have sound. (So I know it's playing the video.) Doesn't seem to matter what site I'm on, the video ends up as a half screen or less, or black screen. I can shut down Firefox and restart it, and all is well again for a time. I get no error message since the video is playing even if I can't see the video part of it, and I can't seem to find any problems anywhere on the system that would be causing this. Since all comes back to normal with a restart of Firefox, I thought this would be a good place to start looking for a fix.
