Hello,

this knowledge base article (Remove the Other Bookmarks folder from the Bookmarks Toolbar) claims that you can display the Other Bookmarks folder on the toolbar since Firefox 85 but it seems to be a lie.

In the screenshots down below, you can see my current settings. The Other Bookmarks folder is missing although my settings are correct.

How can I display the Other Bookmarks folder on the toolbar in Firefox? Thanks for your help!

I had to clear History and Cookies on my desktop to get an online purchase done. I was able to add my passwords for every site bar one (afl.com.au). It just won't accept my password despite changing it. Works fine in Brave and Chrome. Also fine on my laptop (didn't clear anything there). Any help sincerely appreciated.

Pocket

With update 87.0 I believe you have removed the very useful Pocket feature, which I trusted and had put in some important articles. I am very disappointed!!!!

HI I am a trainer and web developper and in all trainings and as a designer I am using the Firefox Inspector. This morning, suddenly the menu under EXTRAS is not showing anymore the "INSPECTOR". Don't know what has changed! I installed Firefox again, no change! I know, that I can still activate the inspector via OPTION COMMAND C but this is not very intuitive for my trainings! See screenshot: What happened? Any ideas?

Thank you in advance! Mathias Will

SYSTEM SPECS: OS: Windows 7 System Type: 64-bit Operating System RAM: 2 GB Firefox Version: 87.0 (64-bit Installation)

I want to try the new Proton UI for Firefox. I followed all these steps: 1. Go to "about:config". 2. Search for "proton" and set the "browser.proton.enabled" from false to true. 3. Restart Firefox.

But that didn't work. Is the Proton UI no longer supported in Windows 7? Or some other problem...

Hello,

I got wondering about how I can save cookies from certain websites that I frequent like my e-mail for instance so I wouldn't have to type in my information again and again after clearing the cookies data in Firefox from time to time so it won't slow down or something. I tried putting in the full website address in the Manage Exceptions under Privacy & Security but still see the cookie(s) from that website on the list. Hope I'm making some sense here and that one of you might know something as in how I can get around this. Thank you in advance if you reply to this post.

I am using Firefox 87 with windows 10. Autofill passwords has always worked, suddenly it no long fills in the password. I have all the correct checks for autofill logon and autofill password, and for FF to ass for both of them on a new site. the information is properly listed in the program list.

I have tried everything i could think of , went to about;config made sure the settings were correct, asked help support page and forums. tried everything tried tried everything what was suggested to solve issue, BUT autofill password still does not work, i have thought of using another program manager, but not sure if that is a good idea thank you very much I sure could use some help with this............ Only other thing i can think is resetting FF but still not sure that would work either. Allen Millner allen-tina@comcast.net

Firefox fails to use some local fonts

After installing the Native MathML extension (to get MathML typeset equations on the Wikipedia, as suggested on mediawiki.org), all equations set by MathJax/MathML turned to using STIX instead of Latin Modern. I'd like them to stick to Latin Modern instead.

The only possibly related setting I've found is `font.name-list.serif.x-math` in about:config, whose value is `Latin Modern Math, STIX Two Math, […]`. I tried to manually change the font family specification of some text to see if Firefox could use Latin Modern Math to begin with, but apparently it can't (see first screenshot attached), while it loads STIX allright (second screenshot). Latin Modern is not the first locally installed typeface I haven't been able to use, but it's the first one I have really tried to (I don't remember which one the other typeface was).

My Latin Modern font comes from TeX Live 2019 installed using the TUG installer, not Fedora's package manager. `fc-list | grep -i "latin modern math"` returns `/usr/local/texlive/2019/texmf-dist/fonts/opentype/public/lm-math/latinmodern-math.otf: Latin Modern Math:style=Regular`. I'm running Firefox 87 on Fedora 33.

Turned on my imac this morning and the Firefox browser gave a "Error code: SEC_ERROR_BAD_SIGNATURE" for every page I tried to open. I have reinstalled the browser and that one is working properly. However, when I try to add Dashlane to it, the old browser opens and the same error message is displayed making it impossible to use Dashlane on the newer version of the browser. How can I get rid of the version that opens up when I try to install Dashlane on the working browser?

Locking this thread.
Please continue here: [/questions/1331097]
I just upgraded to Firefox 87.0 (64-bit) for Windows 7. After the upgrade the wheel click to open a link in a new tab isn't working. In fact, doing a wheel click does absolutely nothing now. I have relied HEAVILY on using wheel clicks to open links in new tabs. In fact, depending on what I am doing I am more likely to open a link in a new tab than to just follow it, as it is easier to close a tab then hit a back button 4, 10, or 20 times to get back to where I started.

I have verified the following options in about:config; browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick=true middlemouse.contentLoadURL=false middlemouse.paste=false middlemouse.scrollbarPosition=false

When searching to see if others were having this problem I noticed a user from 3 years ago had this problem in the Linux version, and that they had listed an option for middlemouse.openNewWindow=true. This option is now missing from about:config. I have no idea if it was in the previous version of Firefox or not, or if it being missing is the source of my problem or not. I have restarted Firefox itself a couple of times, as well as rebooting my computer, the problem is still there.

At this point I am already highly tempted to attempt to return to the previous version of Firefox just to get this one feature back, simply because of how regularly I rely upon it. The only reasons why I'm not at present is to ask for help fixing this problem and that I probably won't have the time around work to fight with it for several days.

Double-Pasting Error in Gmail in FireFox, Cannot Replicate in Other Browsers?

First and foremost, screenshots/snippets are captured by the Windows 10 "Snip & Sketch" and "Snipping Tool" software. I checked the settings for both and there are no settings (toggled on or off) that would fix the issue when tested.

ISSUE: Essentially, once the image is captured and copied/pasted into a Gmail email (ex. composing a new message) ONLY in FireFox does the image paste twice. However, the same process does not replicate the issue in Gmail in other browsers. And I am also cognizant of key strokes aka possibly doing a Ctrl+V twice on accident; that did not occur.

Is this just a minor bug that can be fixed with a FireFox update? I already cleared cache and cookies, de-synced/re-synced FireFox, uninstalled/reinstalled FireFox, and restarted my device. Please advise.

Recently, I opened up the Firefox browser and it prompted me to create a new profile. I reopened the browser 2-3 more times and the same thing happened. I created a new profile. My bookmarks immediately disappeared. When I went to look for my old profiles, they all had disappeared, also. Firefox has been updated recently, and so has Windows 10. I have an older (2013) Toshiba laptop. Any suggestions for getting profiles and/or bookmarks back?

All of the add-on icons in the right-hand corner have disappeared. I want to have them back. But turn on, turn off toolbars doesn't fix anything. Customize toolbars doesn't show any of the icons. There's no help for this that I can find; it's hard to even find the terminology in order to describe it. Add-on bar? Is it turned off or hidden or nonfunctional?

Nothing has worked; starting in Safe Mode; clearing my cache; disabling all addons; disabling my firewall; disabling my antivirus; even reinstalling.

I can download using other browsers just fine, but not Firefox for a reason I cannot figure out.
