Hi guys,

I'm having issues to sync my bookmarks via Firefox Sync on Linux (openSUSE). I logged in to my firefox account, but the sync doesn't work. I have no problems on Windows. So there must be something with the Linux OS. Here is the log:

Hello there, I feel a little embarrassed to ask this, because I feel like this should be trivial to do. I've looked through the settings quite thoroughly. By default firefox opens up all the tabs from the previous session, and lazy loads them. I would like it so that it no longer does this. That it just always opens a single new tab. Irrespective of whether firefox closed, or I shut down my computer while it was still open. Is there a way to do this? General > Start-up > Restore previous session, is already unchecked. Thank you very much, Sashin

For several days, I see an error page when trying to see a certain web site. I suspected something was wrong when I got the same error page when offline. I checked another browser and the website is just like always, no error. I would prefer to use firefox.

The search box to the right of the address bar used to be a regular text field. I could put text in there and initiate a search via engines which were configured separately (usually just once).

For some time the behavior has been changed to bring up a popup window with search options. This is really annoying. It prevents me from being about to dbl click on the search box text to clear it, it prevents me from seeing my old txt, and it serves no purpose that I can see other than to annoy the living crap out of me.

I thought I saw another user complaining of this (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1034054), but the suggested fix appears to no longer work as I don't see the option in about:config.

This is on Quantum that I just installed. I can keep installing it but in a few minutes it changes to solid colors once again. I can't relate these changes to any of my actions. It only applies the colors to the tabs and and Bookmarks Tool bar and the Linen theme disappears.

Multiaccount Containers Addon Downloading But Not Appearing In Toolbar in Windows 10 and Ubuntu 20.04

And neither is the Temporary Containers Addon. I just did fresh brand new initial Firefox install on both the most updated version of Windows 10 and the most recent version of Ubuntu 20.04. All addons appear in the toolbar except these 2. I've tried installing these 2 first. I've tried installing them last, then disabling all the other addons, uninstalling them and reinstalling them. Nothing will make them appear in the toolbar, yet they appear as enabled when they display under the addons > extensions. Also, hitting the extension shortcuts will not bring up the addon interaction screen for any of the addons, e.g. Ctrl U or Ctrl <period> or whatever the relevant shortcut command is. This appears to only be an issue with FRESH Firefox install, because on my other computer running Windows 10 I've had the Multiaccount Containers Addon in the toolbar for 6 months without issue through many older versions of Firefox; and after I updated (rather than fresh install) to this latest version the Multiaccount Containers Addon remains in the toolbar without issue.

Can anyone suggest how I can get theMultiaccount Containers Addon and Temporary Containers Addon to appear in the toolbar? And why are none of the extension shortcuts working - could I be executing them on the wrong screen? I've been trying them on the Addons > Extensions screen.

I provide online assistance for a specific group of clients. I am finding myself repeatedly writing almost the exact same paragraphs. Which Add-on would allow me to simply populate a field on a page with the exact text -- I'm hoping to set up 20 or 30 responses that I can just select instead of having to retype everything. Thanks for any guidance.

Hi,

I've got hundreds of bookmarks that I finally want to classify. So I opened the Bookmarks->Show All to get to the Library. Now from there I thought that I could just move/drag the bookmarks ... I remember it was possible to do it on previous versions of firefox ? But surprise it doesn't seem to work. I can right click and cut/paste it. Or I can go in Organize and Move... it. For a few bookmarks it would do it, but for HUNDREDS of bookmark that's just not possible. It takes some much clicks and time that I'll probably still be on it next year...

I am a web site designer. I have on my computer Linux's Krusader file manager, which allows me to copy files to my web host's server. Normally, when I do that and have renewed the page on Firefox, the page showing in Firefox accurately reflects the change that I have copied to my web host's server. Lately, regardless of clearing the cache, exiting Firefox and coming back in, the page showing on Firefox continues to be the old page without the change.

Firefox 10.0.2 on Ubuntu 10.04 - when I add a bookmark the secondary menu (which allows you to choose the location) does not appear. The bookmark is created in the main bookmark "folder". I can manage the bookmark after it is created but this is not very efficient.

Any ideas how to correct this? Thanks in advance.
