dupe of https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1139452

I want to be able to bookmark genealogy sources from personal, work, and library computers, and then bring them ALL together into Firefox bookmarks on my HOME computer. When using work, friends, or library computers (any computer other than my own, actually). I would like to "login" to a cloud based bookmarking system, update ONE set of permanent bookmarks there with NEW links, and then, finally, merge (or SYNC) that online set to my permanent Firefox bookmarks on my HOME computer system. Can anyone out there suggest a CLOUD BASED system capable of handling 1000s of bookmarks in nested folders, just like Firefox, which I could then IMPORT into FIREFOX on my HOME computer each time updates are added, thus maintaining the same folder structure???

Some of my most trusted and respected advisers are here. I just spent fifteen days trying to re-install Win10. Each day - almost - brought about awful challenges. Each disruption was basically new and never-experienced-before, with issues lasting two - five days or so. Situations I couldn't get out of and for which nobody had an answer. MANY people had the same things happen. As I figured a way out of bizarre results, I drew two conclusions. I know without a doubt that Win 10 is corrupt and not ready for mass distribution. I also know that Win7 Backup & Restore doesn't work when you really need it to work.

I ended up with missing and corrupted system images and totally missing data files after failed upgrades/re-installs. It's amazing the data I have left. Don't get me wrong - I couldn't be more grateful not to start from zero. But, I work too hard at doing the right thing - and I work too long to end up with an empty C drive. I am over one-hundred days behind on the date/data.

For images, people recommend Macrium Free. People also swear by Acronis, I almost bought Acronis until I read that I should avoid the 2016 version. I stopped downloading Macrium because I thought it said it would have to wipe my hard drive if I installed it. I probably read too fast - that sounds like a restore situation. Are there several versions and that was the wrong one? I have no idea what an imaging program requires. (I didn't investigate cloning and my mind is saturated anyway.)

As far as data files - I never used anything but native Windows programs. I could try Win10 History or I could stick with B & R - but why? It has, though restored more than it failed. It doesn't matter whether I have to run two programs (or ten - or a hundred) for the optimal results.

Happy with the external Seagate HD. Will buy DVDs or spare thumb drives, soon. I don't have special requirements, but I run daily backups and make weekly images.

My two cents: FEBE is a perfect program. It's brilliant and reliable, as Mr Baker must also be.

Thank you for your input.

Closing as duplicate of /questions/1132431 ~J99

This config doesn't work anymore:

about:config page: browser.search.showOneOffButtons = false

WHY doesn't it work anymore? Can someone please make it work again? I hate the drop down. Poor UI design, people.

Thanks in advance for your prompt response!

Edit to add - Ignore this post. I was on FF47 and the problem was fixed when I updated to FF48.


Original Post:

I need to update Shockwave Flash. When I open the Add-on Manager page there is a link next to the title of the add-on called "update Now".

However this link directs to the help page about blocked add-ons https://blocklist.addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/blocked/p1236

It would be better for the "Update Now" to direct to the support page for the add-on author. Then users are more likely to update the add-on and less likely to stumble on a malicious version when searching for an update.

Failing that, update the text so "Update now" is replaced with "More info" or similar

Closing as duplicate. Please see /questions/1130909 ~J99

How do I get rid of this nuisance? It will pop up intermittently and then I have to completely restart the system to get rid of it, because I am not able to "surf" the internet. It seems to be linked to an icon that showed up a couple of months ago, an icon that requires be to chose "allow now" or "allow and remember". Located to the left of the web browser line.

Closed as duplicate, please see and continue with original thread /questions/1132062. ~J99

After asking about this yesterday (and thank you for responding to my query), I have followed your suggestion to Change the action for a content type, I have Reset actions for all content types, and deleted mimeTypes.rdf. Now Firefox doesn't automatically create dozens of tabs - the only difference is it asks me every time because Firefox is no longer my default browser. It would still open dozens of tabs if I typed yes. It's not actually downloading anything, or if it is I don't know where it's putting it. I don't understand why this is still happening - but has only happened since upgrading to Windows 10 last weekend. Thank you.

I hope this is not duplicating a message I sent earlier because I don't think it went thru. If so, apologies tendered. Under AppData\Thunderbird\Local I have 3 profiles. Under AppData\Thunderbird\Roaming I have one profile. ebl9xng9.default. That one appears in both locations? Which one is the one I should keep and backup and can I delete all the others? Can anyone explain how this system works?
