I used to see Birthdays in the column to the right of my Facebook Newsfeed. But Birthdays disappeared a few weeks ago. I can see them when I use a different browser, so it seems to be a browser issue, not a Facebook issue. How to fix?

I use multi-account containers, but the home button won't use them when I assign multiple URLs for my home page. Will an extension be better?

How can I open Firefox and get my multiple email accounts to open in their respective multi-account containers (I love the containers btw). Should I be using an add-on or extension that I haven't discovered yet? I've tried assigning the webpages URLs within the home page options, but it doesn't do it right...Suggestions?

When I use Bing Images and I click on an image that I have selected I have in the past been able to click on that image to view the enlarged version of it in one tab but now it incorrectly opens two tabs instead of one. This does not happen in Chrome or Edge. Now if I use the menu that has "view image" below the image it will not open two tabs but correctly open one tab to view enlarged version. Please see screenshots with captions. This has never happened with earlier versions of Firefox.

Thank you, Don

After allowing Firefox to do a refresh, and losing my bookmarks as a result, I followed the instructions I found elsewhere in this forum to restore the bookmarks. I successfully located the backup file, and I can get all the way through converting the *.jsonlz4 file to *.html, but when I try to import the *.html file through the library menu, nothing happens, and nothing changes. I can open the *.html file locally, and see a list of my bookmarks, and they are functional, but the are not incorporated or saved back into Firefox. The address bar looks like this:

file:///C:/Users/kwilliams/Desktop/bookmarks_from_json.html

Is there a way to re-incorporate the bookmarks? At this point, I am faced with clicking on each link on the html list and creating new bookmarks one entry at a time.

When my cursor is not focused on a text box, when I click any letter on my keyboard, it immediately brings up the 'find in page' function. How do we stop this?

Ex. if I were to type 'v' or 'q', the 'find in page' function pops up at the bottom and begins to look for all v's or q's on the page. This sometimes happens when I am in a text box too (I think it depends on the website?) and often interrupts my typing. It is inconvenient and would greatly appreciate if someone could help me remedy this problem.

Thank you.

I asked this question but it got deleted because the website never sent me a confirmation email and after some time my account got deleted.

The issue is after selecting a folder, Enter no longer works to accept "Done".

cor-el gave the right answer on Nov 2, 2018, 8:41:25 AM The Done button doesn't have an access key. What works for me is Alt+N to set focus to the Name field and then press the Enter key to close the dialog.

When I logged in on this site (https://0920921b.index-education.net/pronote/eleve.html), I saved my password but it didn't worked and I had to rewrite it every time. I imported it from google chrome and it worked. Some days ago, I changed this password and when I clicked on "update password", it didn't worked another time and I had to update it on chrome and then import it to firefox. Is firefox or the website not working ? My other firefox saved logins are working so I guess that is the site but it works with chrome so ... Thanks

After my Firefox 32 bit updated to 64 bit yesterday it would not load at all. This morning I did manage to get basic pages to load by starting Firefox with the alt key pressed down. However the background is white and buttons and pictures are almost all absent. I have tried some of the advice but don't know what do.

I follow instructions but this tool bar entry cannot be deleted. Furthermore the page that it reaches keeps changing. I am at a loss, because there seems to be something fishy going on, as though there is an invading malware. More than that whenever I try to do something, it goes to facebook check that I am not robot page where I am supposed to answer which is a car, which is a street sign. etc. I am worried that I got invaded by some hacker's tool. I reloaded firefox couple of times but it keeps coming back.

On certain webpages the text symbols are obscured or replaced by what appears to be a boxed in error code such as the characters F1 on top with 07 on the bottom, encased in a box. I've tried the "gfx.downloadable_fonts.enabled pref on the about:config" to 'True' fix, with no luck. I've also changed the "security.sandbox.content.level and set its value to 1 (one) (default value is 3 )" and to '0' with no luck.

Bottom line is I'm not clever enough to figure out what the problem really is much less how to properly ask to fix it.

Any help or suggestions so I can actually see, and use, the proper symbols on many web pages is appreciated.

Many thanks
