I would like to see the creation date of any bookmark made when looking at bookmarks. This would to me make organizing bookmarks much more efficient. I would like Firefox to do this for me automatically. Now I have to do this manually, which is a bit cumbersome.

Hello,

I have been experiencing issues with the rendering of the navigation menu to the left of https://www.youtube.com/. This problem only occurs when I am signed into an account. I have not been able to replicate it when not signed into YouTube. Normally when I power on my computer and open YouTube, it renders just fine until I refresh the page or click a video then go back to the home page

So far I have tried to:

  • Refresh the page
  • Clear all cookies, cache and data
  • Disable all my extensions
  • Go into incognito and sign into either one of my accounts (problem occurred on both)
  • Relaunch Firefox and restart my computer
  • Check for updates on my computer and for Firefox (everything is up to date)
  • Try the beta of Firefox (uninstalled the beta once I found the same problem)

Unfortunately, non of these solutions have worked and I did test this in two different browsers (edge and chrome) where it successfully rendered it both times. I have included a screenshot that shows what I mean by not rendering.

Thank you for your time

This is more informational than anything else but I wanted to add it to the knowledge base...

On several sites, especially FoxNews, my site login goes stale after a few hours. Nothing would solve the problem except closing FireFox and going through the login procedure again.

The fix I finally found is to Clear History of everything, then the current login works again.

Here is the URL: https://stevemorse.org/census/unified.html?year=1920

I fill in the form from pull-down menus:

    State: Illinois
    County: Chicago Cook
    City or Town: Chicago
    Street: Sawyer N.

I see under "1920 ED numbers corresponding to your location ": "...please stand by". I see above that "Cross or back street on same city block ", but there is no pull-down menu there.

What I see in Chrome is a long list of census Enumeration District hyperlinks and a pull-down menu - "Cross or back street on same city block".

How do I determine why this page is not working in Firefox. I am running FF 65.0 in Windows 7 Professional 32-bit, and I ALWAYS run in FF safe-mode.

No matter how I close Firefox, (X, File->Exit, Menu->Exit), if I start it again it doesn't automatically restore the previous session.

If I click on "Menu->restore previous session" it does restore it.

Of course "Restore previous session" is enabled.

Why did it stop working, what changed?

I am a daily Firefox user and I never faced an issue like this before. I got my new laptop installed Firefox in the beginning it worked for weeks perfectly with the plug-ins I was using on my old PC as well. Everything was working very smoothly but nowadays I am facing issue where it takes too long to load any websites. Even it takes to load and complete the process to connect it to google.com around 10 seconds for sure. I refreshed it once then I tried same issue as before, reinstalled it again nothing worked out for me. I have pretty good internet setup on my home. Is there anyone who is facing the same problem these days or am I special? I want to overcome this problem quickly please help. Thanks.
