I want to find and display the location of a single bookmark in the entire bookmark folder. I can search my bookmarks using key words and display the bookmarks with the search terms. However, what I want to know is which bookmark folder the found bookmark is located in. Is there a way to identify that. Thanks.

FF 78.0.1 Can't get tabs on bottom to work - despite fact that .css file is working on another computer

Hi all, I just got a new laptop and am trying to get FF the way I like it. This new laptop is W10, and the FF version is 78.0.1.

My old laptop (W7) also has FF 78.0.1.

I created a Chrome folder and a userChrome.css file in my new computer. I copied and pasted the "tabs on bottom" code I have been using on my W7 computer into the new file on my new computer and it is not working.

I have looked all over the web for several hours now and have tried several different versions of the code, tried turning the "legacy toolkit" line (in about:config) on and off and nothing has worked. I also can't find any information on why this code would work in W7 but not W10.

Does anyone have any thoughts?

When it became version 78.0.2, the menu to close the tab on the right side was gone and I was very confused. As a result, it was pushed into the submenu. I've been using Firefox because it has a menu to close the tab on the right, but if I can't immediately access this feature, I should consider switching browsers. Please move this menu from sub to main as soon as possible.

I followed the instructions to show image as custom url (thanks), but now my normal home page data doesn't show up. I would like the normal data, favorite sites, article recommendations..., to show up as a clickable overlay over the custom-url-background.

also, pressing c-t nets a second tab, but now it doesn't show the custom background but does show the normal home-screen information. Is there a way to combine the two?

Hi --

As of the latest version of Firefox (v78.0.2 x64), all new tabs open at the end of the list of current tabs. If I only had a few tabs open, that MIGHT be okay, but since I keep many open, it's incredibly annoying. All I want is to open a new tab and have it appear to the right of the current tab. So far...

  • I've tried setting "browser.tabs.insertAfterCurrent" to true, with no effect.
  • I've tried the add-on "Always Right", with no effect.

Since I've noticed this behavior in many previous versions of FF, I doubt that uninstall/reinstall will address the problem, so I didn't try.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance to all!

Please take me step by step through the process of making this new, wonderful "feature" disappear and never come back. I find the unwanted pop up (pop down, since it shows below the address bar?) annoying, intrusive (I don't want any suggestions unless I ask for them) and sometimes it covers important information.

Somewhere, I clicked a box and I deeply regret it. Every since then every time I turn the computer off or it goes to sleep I have to login to Google and Microsoft apps. Logging in to the computer is fine, but any time I use google search I have to log into my google account. All day long I'm logging into my google account. the same with online microsoft apps; onedrive, word, onenote, etc. I used to have to log in to these things only after turning the computer off. Now it's a constant state of affairs. Help.

Hello,

Since about 3 weeks, Firefox hang on certain websites while trying to load them, when un-ticking all "Firefox Home Content" items. When those things are ticked, everything is fine. Wasn't happening before. Often a gray geared wheel appear and at other times only the "tab text" appear, please see the attached screen shot. I'm able to click on "File Edit View...", the items present on the bookmark toolbar, "Refresh", "Home" but the action is executed only when Firefox un-hang. I'd already get a look at Firefox help tutorials but there was nothing about "The "Firefox Home Content" can cause Firefox to hang".

It take me about 10 minutes to load this current page. "Firefox Home Content" are not ticked right now.

Thanks,

Guillaume

Unfortunately I just did a refresh to Firefox and even more unfortunately I had no idea that fixing a slow opening of Firefox would erase all my very valuable bookmarks that I really need! There should be warnings posted as to what a refresh will really do before being allowed to click on the refresh button.

I have tried following videos on you tube to restore my bookmarks, but they are hard to follow and I have had no luck with them. I need a step by step video process with audio instructions so I can retrieve said bookmarks!

Please, any help will be greatly appreciated !!! Thanks, D.
