Since a recent Firefox update, Firefox has alpha-sorted my bookmarks automatically and I cannot turn this new feature off - this is annoying!

I want to custom organise the order of my bookmarks - NOT by alpha-sorting.

The 'sort by name' menu option does not have a counter option - ie 'DO NOT sort bookmarks'

So how do I turn off book mark sorting ???

New logo at top of home page. What's the quickest/easiest way to get rid of it ?

Rant: Why did someone think it was a good idea to put a massive logo at the top of the home page ? It serves no practical purpose and it forces link icons down so you now have to scroll "!!"!! There's always ******* one isn't there !!? - someone with a crap idea who thinks the world needs to see it. How many hrs worldwide is going to be wasted today by people like me trying to undo this crud ? This isn't the first time some ignorant little ******* has forced their crap on firefox end users.

I have a Bookmarklet that draws a red border on all elements in the web page.

` (function(){

   var e = document.querySelectorAll('*');
   var el = e.length;
   for (let i = 0; i < el; i++) {
           setTimeout(() => {
               e[i].style.border="1px solid red";
           }, 100);
   }

})(); `

This works fine on Chromium-based browser, but when I run this in Firefox it starts drawing borders and then all of the sudden a number gets written on the page. Everything is gone and a number appears.

I don't know why this happens, every other Bookmarklet works fine. It might be the script I wrote but I doubt it because it works completely okay on Chrome.

Running this snippet directly inside the console works fine.

When I opened Firefox this morning, I got a pop-up I've never seen before, that said something like "Firefox is slow. Refresh Firefox." So I did that. Then I added back the add-ons I want to use. The add-ons are installed and working. But there are no icons in the toolbar. There is no overflow arrow. Just a blank space where the icons used to be. I've searched for solutions for two hours now. Can't figure it out.

I submitted a crash report: bp-28bfafdf-37b2-4a4c-b56d-19c690201216 I cannot start Firefox. It crashes with 30 seconds of attempting to open it. It crashes in safe mode, too. I refreshed Firefox. I have installed the latest Firefox (12/16/2020). I have uninstalled Flash Player. I have rebooted. I have no startup.*.cache file in my profiles directory. I have only startup_shaders. I do have two Firefox\Profiles\*.default-* directories. One was created years ago and the other was created on 10th December.

Hi, I have FF 85, there is some setting that doesn't allow a new tab to open, without me having to give permission each time (another step and a time waster). Everything I have found, tells me to go to general settings and then go to "advanced" at the bottom of the general list and to change the setting there. There is no "advanced link to click, so I can't change this damn setting. This drives me crazy, as all help tells me to "go somewhere, that is not there". Help........why is it so difficult to change this simple setting, that was probably set incorrectly at some time in the past......... Help

I am having troubles using the web site "The Daily Wire" on this laptop running Windows 10. The site will either not open at all, or if it opens, the articles on the site won't open when clicked on. I have uninstalled and refreshed Firefox, same problem. The site works fine on my desktop PC when using Firefox, and on this laptop when running all other browsers. Any ideas?

Suddenly, a yellow icon with an explanation point in it has appeared over thee horizontal bars in the upper right of my tool bar section. When I click on it a warning reads "Reconnect to Firefox Account." I never knew I was not connected and since I'm able to write this, right here in a Firefox support group page with my account, I have a feeling I may still be conmected to my Firefox account. When I click on that warning icon I'm led to believe I should do something with this thing called Sync. I have to guess this is a Firefox software corruption or someone has hacked into Firefox and this is a phishing tool or malware.

How do I get rid of the yellow icon and the Sync stuff?

Does anyone know a telephone number or email address for Mozilla ?

Hi. The message "For quick access, place your bookmarks here on the bookmarks toolbar. Manage bookmarks..." has appeared at the top of my Firefox window. I don't think it's been there for more than a couple of days, so it must have been added by a recent update. I already have my bookmarks available just fine, so is there a way to get rid of the message? Thanks!
