I recently switched to Firefox from Chrome and I find very hard to access my bookmarks giving the fact that in Chrome I had the possibility so synchronize my bookmarks on a new device including their icons on the toolbar. All my bookmarks are arranged by icons to save space on the bookmark toolbar so in Firefox after synchronizations I only see that globe or whatever it is as a icon for bookmarks and to get the icons I have to access all the links.

I have changed servers and would like to change my e-mail address on sync so my old e-mail sync could be transfered to my new e-mail sync.

I have lots of saved bookmarks and passwords in my old sync address and it won't let me upload them to my new address because it wants me to use old e-mail address to berify ownership and my old address was discontinued when I changed servers. It wouldn't let me just transfer e-mail sync. I had a crash and reloaded windows 7 and downloaded firefox but it wouldn't let me sync because I couldn't confirm my old e-mail address with old server, as that address was discontinued.

Why do my downloads often have strange (but related) names and no file extensions?

EDIT: Okay, seems I didn't quite look thoroughly enough before asking this, apparently an add-on for "Ninja Download Manager" was causing problems. Please disregard this question, I apologize for wasting anyone's time.

For some reason, a lot of my downloads end up with strange names and without a file extension. For example:

If I try to save a PDF file from my university with the following link. https://mylo.X.edu.au/d2l/le/content/235142/topics/files/download/2789744/DirectFileTopicDownload the file gets saved as "DirectFileTopicDownload" (that is part of the link, it has not been replaced or changed like the X has).

Alternatively, when I try to download executable files, often I end up with a string of numbers and letters which Im fairly certain is related to the files in question, though I can't tell how ( a quick google search of the string tends to lead to a related site etc.). FOr example, when trying to download a companion app for the firefox extention VideoDownloadHelper, i get the extension-less file "c036135a-7faa-11e8-87ad-cc9be00dd6d8"

I would appreciate any help in this matter, bearing in mind I have reinstalled Firefox once already.

I installed the umatrix add-on, but it doesn't show in the top right with the rest of them. It is clearly installed, and it also shows in the sidebar, but I can not use it properly from there. I would like to know how i put the icon back to the top right corner, so I can access it from there. It has been there before, but it suddenly disappeared. I can't remember doing anything thats related with add-ons around the time it disappeared. so I have no clue what caused this.

Kind regards

Favicon's Not Loading

Only effects certain websites, and only on my laptop, not my desktop. Most sites are fine. Seems to have occurred when I bookmarked a site on my desktop, and then my laptop synced and got screwed up. Not quite sure though.

For example, Wolfram Alpha's website does not display the favicon:

   -  there is no favicon in the tab
   -  when bookmarked there is no favicon

Deleting browsing data doesn't fix it. Deleting places.sqlite doesn't fix it. Refreshing the page doesn't fix it. Restarting my computer doesn't fix it.

I don't want to do a reinstall, if anything, because I shouldn't have to.

I'm only annoyed by this because I use the favicons (without text next to them) as links in the bookmarks bar. I can't do this if I don't know what the favicon is, and thus don't know what the website is.

When waking up my Macbook from sleep in the morning and Firefox has been left open since the day before I get the following behavior in my tab bar when resizing the firefox window: https://media.giphy.com/media/1n5GTrxJwnQmnmW6Ga/giphy.gif

At work I have multiple larger screens than the laptop screen itself.

The only way to get rid of it is to close all open tabs.

Since updating to FF 62.0.2 when I try to use the bookmarks option "bookmark this site", when I click on the drop down menu option for me to choose the "folder" I want to save the new site too it doesn't show me my main book mark category. It's the one that I imported from "NetScape" many years ago when it was going away and I changed to FF. Everything was working as normal for many years until I updated to the latest release. I had waited to do that update due to the bookmark "description" field being removed but finally decided to just back up my bookmarks to maintain access to that field and move to release 62.0.2.

The question is all in the above. I am sick of the URL in the footer cutting off halfway across the page. I previously used Internet Explorer which printed almost the full width of the footer and almost always this was enough to print the whole URL. I would like to see this in Firefox.
