Can not connect to my Lan Router

I can connect to my Router ( NetGear ) via Safar; however,' I can not go to http://routerlogin.net/ via the FoxFire browser'. I get redirected to https://www.netgear.com/home/services/routerlogincom/ .

Via the Settings interface, I have allowed this site to accept cookies for the session. Still no luck.

I have look at articles that attempt to address this issue - they must be old, for the solution menu options can not be found in my version of FF 97.0.1

It has to be a settings issue for again - I can do what I want via Safari when allowing cookies.

Browser Settings are strict with "do not Tack me". HTTPs only is set. Usually when this fails, I elect to goto the URL as HTTP.

Can you help ?

Thanks.

In version 98, a change was made so that the download panel always opens every single time any file is downloaded. I have found that I never, under any circumstances, want or have ever wanted this behavior, nor do I ever ever serendipitously benefit from it. It is continuously annoying. How do I defeat it?

BOOKMARKS: LOCATING SUB-FOLDER

QUESTION POSTED NOV 2020 by: BevHoward NEVER ANSWERED - PLEASE ADVISE - NEED ANSWER

"I have hundreds of FireFox bookmarks organized in bookmarks folders and subfolders which makes sense most of the time.

However, with seldom used bookmarks, often I cannot remember where the bookmark itself is located, and, I need like to find the bookmark and note the folder where it resides then perhaps move the bookmark to a folder that makes more sense the next time it's needed.

While I can "search" bookmarks and use the bookmark, there is no apparent way to determine where the bookmark itself is located, so, I am forced to use "search" every time I need to use it. "Abandoning" a lost bookmark location and creating a duplicate does not seem right.

There MUST be a way to find where a bookmark is located. What am I missing?"

I've read all the articles here about importing my passwords and history, but the Import Wizard is ONLY giving me the option to import my bookmarks. Even if I can't get the browsing history I need to be able to migrate my (extensive) password list.

I've exported my Safari passwords as a .csv file, but there doesn't seem to be an option to import a .csv file.

The page here regarding it says the feature is 'disabled by default' but does not say it's unavailable and I can't find clear instructions for how to activate the feature so that I can import my passwords. Can anybody help?

I have three Firefox profiles: A, B, and C. I tried to give them all different themes. A has a red theme and keeps it consistently. B, my default profile, should have a green theme, and C should have a black theme. However, when I change B's theme to green, the theme on C also changes to green, and when I change the theme on C to black, the theme for B also changes to black. I don't know what I did differently for A! How can I make my profile themes stick for B and C?

Starting up my Mac up on March 10, a notification from Firefox was on the screen thanking me for using the browser and notifying me my Firefox is up-date. From that point and continuing, none of my Gmail accounts are receiving emails. The last dated email all show on March 10th was receipt of a last email for several accounts. What gives and what do I need to do in order to correct my Gmail account email problem(s)? I'm a dedicated Firefox browser user and have been for many years without experiencing a single problem with it up until this. I love Firefox and very comfortable using it but I also need my emails and also questioning where the emails sent and not received went to and how to retrieve them, if at all? Any solutions to my situation?

I have two Macs with Firefox, A and B. I don't understand the sync. I have different bookmarks on firefox in computer A and computer B. I want to transfer the bookmarks from A to B, not vice versa. What is the process and sequence of signing in/syncing so that the bookmarks go from A to B and not from B to A? Thank you for your help.

'I just downloaded Firefox in an attempt to break away from Google stranglehold (I also switched to Protonmail and DuckDuckGo). My issue is that I was unaware that there is an autozoom feature with FF. While for some people this is probably a godsend, for me it is slowly, but surely, driving me crazy.

I have searched for the answer online but have not found the solution ... please tell me that there is a way to shut this feature off

When I select "Add Bookmark" from the Bookmark dropdown menu on the menu bar, the popup menu to select the location (folder) to place the bookmark quickly flashes open and closed. The bookmark is created, but it is created in the last place that a bookmark was added. If I am still on that tab and I try to use "Edit Bookmark" from the menu bar to open the pop up it also just flashes up and closes.

If I move away from that tab to another one, and then come back to it, the "Edit Bookmark is not even listed as an option."

Can you please assist.

Firefox blocks Mac keyboard text replacements. Textfast worked til a week ago, but now it does not. I type "qq1" into a document on the mac, hit enter, then a phrase is automatically typed or inserted. I type "qq3" another phrase is inserted. I have about 12 keyboard replacements. Be nice if Firefox would support this?
