Where did I see that article on XYZ. I'd like to regain a train of thought/investigation. Is bookmarks and history all there is? In reading about "Activity Stream" this seemed like the solution but it seems to lack an awareness of clustered, goal-directed activity. Is "Top Sites" and "Highlights" all there is to Activity Stream? Looking for some deeper integration/intelligence around re-displaying my history.

First thanks for all the help with ff when I had a dying system. Now setting up ff 59.0.2 on a windows 10 box and need a basic bit of information.

In the previous version I had I could type for instance, 'imdb' and hit ENTER then I'd be taken right to the imdb page. Now a search engine page opens up. Only way I can go directly to a site is if I type the entire address as in, http://www.imdb.com/ Either one of these ways of navigating are an inconvenience.

What do I have to do to get ff to a state where I can type the site name, say tigerdirect, hit ENTER and go right to http://www.tigerdirect.com/ ?

Thanks in advance.

I just got a brand new computer, downloaded firefox. I've tried to login to my twitter account, and an online class, and I get the same response every time. The site doesn't recognize my login, and when I try to reset my password it just hangs and won't go anywhere. I understand that some folks have posted about similar problems, but as this is a new computer, I don't believe the Refresh will work. Help?

When I last closed it, there were about five windows opened with many tabs I planed to return to. I am using a Mac. Firefox is not sync'd. I've spent a month slowly switching from Safari to Firefox. Created a lot of new and original bookmarks and logins. The loss is a real setback. It opens in a new profile it created. "Old Firefox" is not on my computer. I've read somewhat similar problems. The solutions seem very complex and do not seem to apply. Any way I can restore my work?

Is there anyway I can recover them.

You have to understand that I don't understand anything about code.

I am 61 years old and you and google and MS are making it more and more complicated in the name of BS safety

I have ESET Internet Security and addons that block popups and dangerous websites.

I suggest you offer a browser that is easier for me to understand.

My computer was destroyed when I installed the Windows 1903 update.

Then I accidentally deleted all my files ,and I didn't have a hard disk backup

Is it possible you can send me all my bookmarks from 12 months ago

Or give me instructions on how to recover without being too complicated

Please send the details to my gmail account xxxxxxxx@xxxxx.xxx

I only use xxxxxxxxx@xxxxx.xxx for Youtube

sincerely

Pretty much as in my query.Everything works ok,surfing,vid dld,(except for Ant vid dlder) etc,but I can't use the google search box because of the "problem loading page" message which suggests that I have the wrong url for that page..Thing is,I don't know if there was a FFx update in the update of 3 days ago.Never had this problem before in about 6 yrs of using FFx. Downloadhelper for vids works ok though.That's about all really.

Firefox Prizes itself in Healthy Network and Internet Privacy, however they did not include these 2 features which made me turn down the browser :

1 - Where's the option to delete EVERYTHING in your browser after you close the window ? (history, session, Download history, cookies, passwords, auto-fill and etc)---(Shouldn't a browser that boasts about privacy include this feature) 2 - I do not like using cookies so I have disabled them altogether, whenever I use a site that requires cookies I allow access only for that site, which is easily accessed from the address bar on chrome but not on Firefox, I don't want to open up a whole page and change the settings every time just to use a website. (The cookie feature should be accessible from the address bar when relative)

3 - I'm not sure if this is true, but I heard some rumors that FF will introduce a new way to show ads that take information from the user randomly. I understand that ads are the glue that hold the internet and economy together, without ads people can't make money. However I don't like that a "privacy browser" is using these kinds methods. Also, I've heard some rumors around FF quantum that it was made by google or is related to google in some way. Is this also true? why is Mozilla relating with google ?

I was personally very excited to see FF release a new browser that is so perfect, right way I started to use it until I came across these problems which made me quit the browser and go back to my previous one. You added all these features but forgot some basic ones which are important. This browser has the potential to rival even chrome, that's how amazing it is with all it's features but you are missing a solid few features.

Please add a delete everything option, and Cookie settings that are more accessible from the address bar. Otherwise I'm going back to my previous browser.

Thank you

THIS program needs WORK! I already added a whole paragraph describing my problem. Then per this pages clicked on the green button below. It took me to a page that said it couldn't find what I was looking for and when I clicked back, I lost ALL of what I had input before - Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. So here goes AGAIN:

I had been receiving error messages whenever I tried to load FF stating that it was already running. Jumped through all the hoops of how to fix that, including unchecking the read only in profile - BTW. After unchecking that box, clicking on apply now, and waiting for the program to stop doing whatever with the files. I clicked on OK and the properties closed. When I opened it up again - sure enough the read only box was filled in! - WTH - Then I installed the newest version (yesterday and everything worked). This AM when I went to open FF I got the same error message about it running and to close it. I am getting sick enough of this to start looking elsewhere. I have been a FF user for YEARS with NO problems. Until NOW.

This may be coincidence but I just added several Firefox tweaks listed at privacytools.io None of them seem like they could have any affect on this but ...

Now when I initialize FF it appears full height but only half the width of my screen.

So I pull it over to full width, close it, re-initialize, and it's still half width.

Rebooted, no change.
