EBAY

The Text in the Ebay Item Description box does not format normally. (Like this! for eg) Instead it formats as though I have changed tabs to only allow it into 1 inch columns.

Why is this happening ONLY on Firefox? I checked Chrome and Safari and those 2 do not show the text in the description box this way.

How is this fixable?

I could upload a screenshot, but the Add Images option just twirls and never stops.

Whenever I search something and follow a link, or if I'm on a page and click a link to another site or page, the history in the tab gets overwritten.

I've only noticed it this month and if I'm looking for something quickly its extremely frustrating having to re search with the same parameters over and over or remember to open every search in its own tab.

I've had a hard time searching this issue, I don't know if my terminology is right or if it's just a very niche issue I'm having.

Any help would be EXTREMELY appreciated.

I now have trouble logging into jungledisk.com after most recent "improvement" to Firefox. Never ran into this annoyment until new FF rolled out. My current work around, go to Edge. No problems getting to jungledisk there.

I get the following when I try,

"Cookies required to use Firefox

To continue signing in using Firefox, allow cookies to be stored on this device. You might see this screen more than once."

Below is the dialog box to log on asking for user name and password finally "Sign In". This "Sign In" is greyed out. Can log on the jungledisk not no way, not no how.

Hi,

I often search with the adress bar without thinking, and when searching 'maps' I accidentally hit 'yes' on the little drop down that says 'did you mean...' with the url. Now every time I try to search 'maps' in the address bar unless I specifically press the down key or use @g (or @ddg etc) I am taken to a url I have no use for. How do I disable this default? I spent ages trawling through settings to try to find where to turn this off.

Thank you so much!

This version 95.0-64 bit, has issues with Office.com URL running on Windows 10. I am able to log in; however, once I enter my password and press OK...windows is ALL WHITE. Nothing is being displayed.

I compared this to Chrome to see if there were issues on the Microsoft side and Chrome is working normally. I was hoping to attach a snip; however, file upload isn't working....it just spins forever.

This was working just fine on Friday. BTW...OS Updates are current.

Any assistance is appreciated. Regards, Mark

Заметил, что авторизованная сессия (логин пароль) https://discord.com/ сохраняется даже после удаления всей истории. (Clear Recent History/everything/all checkboxes). Сессия удалилась после удаления папки profile напрямую с жесткого диска. Почему? Браузер имеет скрытый id пользователя? Но тогда это огромная дыра в безопасности.

translate.google.com I noticed that the authorized session (login password) https://discord.com/ persists even after deleting the entire history (Clear Recent History/everything/all checkboxes). The session was deleted after deleting the profile folder directly from the hard drive. Why? Does the browser have a hidden user id? But then this is a huge security hole.

I've noticed this happening in the past week. Example #1 I used Google search to look for Japanese dogs & clicked on Wikipedia In addition a tab on debt popped up on its own. Here's a link to it: https://go.debthelpguide.com/api/offer

Example #2 I logged into citi.com to check my credit card activity In addition a tab which was of a sexual nature popped up on its own. I was so shocked I didn't think of saving a link for it.

It doesn't happen on all tabs I am using. Thank you in advance for your help.

I regularly get delivery maps from UPS to track my inbound packages. Always worked without issue. After this latest update, I can no longer see the map (only the image of a truck and a house representing my address. I have all the bells and whistles turned off for this site, and I am getting no hints as to why it is not displaying correctly. I have tried two other browsers and they work fine.... (Please don't tell me to clear the cache - that is getting to be an old answer and an annoying way to fix things.Too many issues arising with these updates lately, by the way. Not fond of having to reset my theme, either!) I am adding screen shots of what it looks like today on Firefox and how it should look (screen shot from a different browser).

Bookmark Restore ignoring order and location in folders

Following an incident with Firefox Sync, I needed to restore my bookmarks. I have a little over 700 bookmarks across 15-25+ folders at mostly 2-3 levels deep but up to 5 levels. All but a handfull of these are all in the bookmarks toolbar.

I have a backup json of everything for restoration. However, when I do restore, everything is messed up: all the bookmarks are there, and all the folders are there with their structure preserved (subfolders in the right folders), but every bookmark has been pulled out of the folder structure and into the toolbar, so all folders are empty of actual bookmarks. This includes taking bookmarks from folders in the bookmark menu. Folders seem to be in the right order, and some bookmarks are, but most bookmarks are in the wrong place and order. Since most of my bookmarks were in folders, I really do not have it in me to put them all back unless I absolutely have to (assuming I can even remember what goes where).

Opening the json in Firefox, selecting "Raw Data" and "Pretty Print", it is clear the json file correctly preserved folder structure and bookmark placement exactly as it was before. Thus, something must be going wrong in how it is being read.

I have tried different restore points with the same outcome. I have sync disabled and have tried removing existing bookmarks first, clearing data, and deleting places.sqlite (as per related help threads) to no avail. Integrity check runs without error. I have also tried on a different OS (Windows 10 and Manjaro KDE) with the same results. I have not seen any other posts with this specific issue.

Would it only work correctly if the export was an html file? Is there anything I can do, like trying to modify the json? Is this expected behavior or a bug to fix? Please advise.
