Pocket (which I turned OFF) grabs ALL my bookmarks so I have to edit them into my bookmarks list; can I completely disable it?

Pocket was OK for a while, but about a week or so ago it started taking the URL whenever I clicked on Bookmarks in the Firefox menu (on a Mac running 10.12.6). I keep my bookmarks organized in a folder structure, so this makes me go back to the Bookmarks menu and choose Edit This Bookmark. I changed the value given in the instructions to disable it to FALSE as instructed, and restarted Firefox just in case. BUT it still acts the same way, grabbing the Bookmarks. I don't WANT Pocket. If anyone can tell me how to get it to stop working I would really appreciate it. Thank you for any help.

According to the official Firefox procedure shown online, in order to remove individual cookies, go to Options-Privacy-"Cookies and Site Data", Manage Data. All cookies are listed in that screen. Select the cookie to remove then click on the "Remove" button. After all individual cookies have been selected and 'Removed', finally, click on the "Save Changes" button and exit the screen.

The problem is, NO "Save Changes" button exists on the screen in Firefox 65. And, in fact, when I exit the screen and reboot Firefox - none of my changes to the list of cookies are actually done.

How to I really manage to permanently remove specific cookies ??

I need an updated version of FF for an intranet network, one without access to the www, therefore security isn't as mush an issue.

I'm looking for some features that the present version (54.0 (32 bit)) I am using doesn't have, such as "simplify printing".

In Chrome, I can click the star icon to bookmark a page, and it automatically saves to the last folder that a bookmark was saved to. Due to bugs I have been forced to use Firefox instead of Chrome. I would like to know if there's a plugin or setting I can tweak to allow me to do 1 click bookmarking to the last folder bookmarked to.

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.

OLD WAY OF CHANGING TABS???

PLEASE PLEASE make it the way it was before. I use 'ctrl-tab' and 'ctrl-shift-tab' so much and I loved it the way it was before. It was simple, bloat-free, it worked, did exactly what I wanted.

Now, it pops up some animation where it shows me the tabs and what's in them (and that only works when you first press 'ctrl-tab' btw. with 'ctrl-shift-tab' it doesn't work anymore, unless you first do 'ctrl-tab'.) And it's also slow (way slower than the old way at least). And also it doesn't just go through the tabs in the order that they're in up there.

It's such an important feature to me that I will switch to another browser if this doesn't change back and I really don't want that. PLEASE change it back I love firefox ;;(

One website is not behaving properly. It works on Chrome.

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.

Since updating to Firefox 65.0.1 on my Mac, all my bookmarks have gone, and the 'Import and backup' star icon has gone too, so I can't restore them. I have spent hours trying to solve the problem, but I can't. I also have a Windows computer (which fortunately is synced with the Mac) so I have been able to copy the HTML file to a memory stick, but since the Import and Backup star icon is gone from the Mac, I don't know what else to do. Same problem with using Mac's bookmarkbackups file. I'm going nuts, it now seems tht every time I update Firefox a new set of problems occur! Please help, and thank you in advance.
