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 am doing school online at home. I go to my login page, sign in, and get sent to the home page. From the home page i have to scroll to the bottom, click a link, click a link on that next page, then access my assignments. Is there a way to login and then create a redirect from the page it sends me to to my assignments page?

Operating system: Windows 8.1 (performed a system refresh on a Windows 10 and ended up with 8.1 instead, not sure what happened but I like it)

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.

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.

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.

Any ideas would be dearly appreciated. Thanx

A video at a Web site where I have often accessed videos now tells me the video is inaccessible because of "privacy and security settings." I don't think I have changed the settings since the last time I watched a video. In any case I have not been able to find the problem. I have tried the options for cookie settings without fixing the problem. What should the settings be?
