Why does Firefox 62.0 Stable released today remove the description field for bookmarks? (September 5, 2018)

I know this question has already been asked on the Mozilla Support Forums, but it's always better for there to be multiple answers to questions about Firefox since there's two sides to every story. I still am very much looking forward to reinstalling Firefox Stable on my 15.6" full HD Dell Inspiron 7558 after I reset it and cleaned the drive a few days ago after numerous bug reports being sent to Mozilla and Microsoft about Firefox and Windows 10 build 17134, respectively. I'm also looking forward to the complete rollout of all of the major improvements to loading webpages in Firefox Stable, to be completed by Tuesday, January 29, 2019 when Firefox 65.0 Stable gets released to Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android. At that point in time, I'll be able to read and bookmark articles seamlessly and with much greater reliability than I do here today, September 5, 2018! Lastly, I'm very much looking forward to each and every one of the planned reliability improvements and new features coming in the Windows 10 October 2018 update which will be released next month. I always love Microsoft's concerted efforts to act upon the bug reports users worldwide send to Microsoft to make Windows better every second Tuesday of every month and when a new build of Windows 10 is released about once every six months! I'll comment on how Firefox Stable is working for me on my Dell Inspiron 7558 every four weeks beginning October 30. I'll also donate $5.00 to Mozilla every first and fifteenth of each month to ensure I always get timely updates to the bugs in Firefox Stable. Now more than ever, it's very important my experience with Firefox Stable, my much preferred web browser, is as seamless and reliable as it can be every day when I read all kinds of articles on the World Wide Web, especially about what there is to explore in the United States, Canada, and Mexico! My sister very much enjoyed Cancun after she became a registered nurse and I expect to have a substantially similar experience with her once I find a career that I very much enjoy working to help, not just support myself!

I know I threw a lot at you this morning. This long description of how I feel at 10:26 AM EDT is evidence that I'm very compassionate about the active development of Firefox. On top of a $5.00 donation every first and fifteenth of each month, I might become a beta tester of Firefox and report any performance issue, real or perceived, to Mozilla as soon as I take notice of any that may be present!

Spectrum does not come on my computer. It just shows a blank page. Spectrum tells me Firefox cannot accept Spectrum. I get all other business on my firefox and they said I have to use microsoft to reach them. I cannot see why I should have to switch over for one company. Please help all of us that have these problems. I tried to go on microsoft and it told me I was getting a virus so I came back to Firefox which I have had for years .

Using Mozilla version 61.0.2 (64-bit) if I am able to follow a link, sometimes I will not be able to scroll down unless I widen the window, full screen doesn't help, tried both. If I am able to scroll down, sometimes a link will become clickable and I can follow the link. I am fortunate to be able to navigate without the mouse. Of and the size changing indicator function of the cursor wont engage unless I first go above the level of the bookmarks tool bar. but not if Im on the level of the body of the page.

I just upgraded from esr 60.1 to esr 60.2 for mac, and some addons that I value are now broken. I tried reverting to esr 60.1 from the directory on the site, then trying others, working backwards, without any luck yet. I'd like to find a pre-quantum version that works. The addons include ShareMeNot, Downthemall!, and BetterPrivacy.

browser.urlbar.matchBehavior = 3 changed to include 'www.' since Firefox 62; is this intended?

So, I have firefox to only search my bookmarks and I understand that browser.urlbar.matchBehavior with a value of 3 means that it will match only the beginning of page URLs and titles. Before Firefox 62, typing 'r' alone will show up "www.reddit.com" from my bookmark in the url bar, typing 'a' will show up "www.amazon.com", and so on. This is GOOD.

But after Firefox 62, only by typing 'www.r' will "www.reddit.com" then show up, and typing "www.a" will 'www.amazon.com' then show up. This is BAD. Of course I suppose I can manually delete "www." from the 'location' fields of all my bookmark and remember to save all new bookmarks in the future without the 'www.', but if this is a bug, then I would like to wait for it to be fixed. If it's a changed behavior, I find that including 'www.' in the search behavior doesn't make sense at all.

Good morning everyone,

I'm contacting you because the newest and greatest Firefox version is being unleashed on us. Sadly, this version has stopped supporting Java which we need for our Business applications (Oh Oracle, when will you learn.... ).

Anyway, is there a way to either:

- Stop this version to install.
- Enable Java anyway on this version.

Many thanks in advance,

Thierry

Hi. Not all web sites support favicons, so when visiting such sites, bookmarking it, there is instead a "default" meaningless icon set in the bookmarks toolbar for that particular site. In previous versions of FF it was possible to set up the bookmarks toolbar displaying text only. That option seems to be removed.

I would like to be able to customize my bookmarks displaying only a text? Is there a way that can be done now in the 62 version? Or possibly in future versions? Appreciate all good suggestions.

I used to use an add-on for TAB management in older Firefox versions, because the way Firefox handles tab-configuration is generally horrid. I had hoped that would be fixed in the latest version, but it is NOT. If the Firefox team prides itself on delivering a fast and user-friendly browser, why can't it allow users to configure tabs :

-where they are created (at the end, at the beginning, right next to the actual tab, on the right or left of the actual tab) -whether a new tab can be created with a double click on the titlebar, or right-clicking the titlebar or an existing tab -whether we want a list of followed tabs and/or history or not -to show only right-menu options for tab-management that I need / want OR to add menu options I'd like for tab-management

Right now my experience of how tabs react, is downright irritating and inconsistent (and if has guided me more than once to the about:config page in a desperate attempt to make tabs at the very least consistent) I love using Firefox (it all started with Netscape really) and I wouldn't use any other browser if possible, but, guys and girls... please fix the usability and flexibility of tabs... it would make firefox the right tool for EVERY browsing job Thanks
