I go to show all bookmarks and search for a bookmark I know I saved before. I find it. The problem is it does not tell me what folder I saved that bookmark in. I have dozens of folders and hundreds of bookmarks. How do I tell where that particular bookmark is stored at?

The German word concoction "Verschlimmbessern" which translates into "constantly 'improving' something until it actually becomes worse or dysfunctional".

I'm at a point now where we all give up on Firefox as these constant updates and uncalled and not requested changes not only become annoying but also introduce new dysfunctionality. (just like Windows 10 updates)

Too many to list here. but this job securing through constant new updates and changes gets very annoying.

Now the search feature has changed into some absurdity having to be in the address bar. We don't need that we don't want that! we wanted like it is and always was before.

Searching support I found answers but applying them does not work: "browser.urlbar.suggest.searches" change to false Search "keyword.enabled" change to false Search "browser.fixup.alternate.enabled" change to false browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus change to false browser.urlbar.update1 change to false browser.urlbar.update1.interventions change to false browser.urlbar.update1.searchTips change to false

About to uninstall this nonsense altogether and install an old version again or better yet just give up on it and find another browser! I need a reliable browser that works and not something that annoys me after every update.

My PC immediately connects to Bing every time I connect or press the Home icon

I have used FireFox exclusively for more than 20 years - my current PC operating system is Windows 10 and I have never used Bing as my search engine

Can you please help

Firefox 91.02 64 bit

Alienware 15 R4 Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-8300H CPU @ 2.30GHz 2.30 GHz Windows 10 Home Version 20H10 OS Build 19042.1165 64bit Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.3530.0


I used to be able to leave the firefox session going for at least a week, if not two, or more, but now, i'm having a hard time restoring the session at all... Computer losses all connection to internet when i try, but there is no indication of the connection being cut, even the troubleshooter doesn't recognize it. At this point, even clearing the browser and resetting the connection/modem doesn't bring it back, no matter what method, or browser, i use. The computer ends up needing reboot to regain connection. At this point, i'm considering a Windows Upgrade in Place.

Forever you've been apply to type anything into the Google search bar on the home screen, but not anymore.

Now whateveryou type automatically appear up in the tab line with https// infront of it , then of course it comes back with ...cannot find that web address !!

I'm not looking for a web address, i'm searching a subject matter..

This change is SO annoying I'm now seriously thinking of dumping my much loved Firefox for something which works better.

Why isn't there the 'option' to do search without it 'assuming' you're looking for a web address ?


So Annoying and frustrating, whoever dreamt this idea up....?

I tried to register at link text and when I entered my email addy it told me that email address is already in use. I tried my secondary email addy and was told same thing. I don't remember username and for that matter, don't remember a previous registration. So how can I contact admin at site or who do I contact to resolve issue or what do I so now?

In my "saved addresses" list under the Privacy and Security section of Firefox Settings, there are two addresses of people that have never used my computer. One formerly went to my school, and the other is a stranger. I can think of no way that they could have had access to my account at any time. Are there any other possible explanations for this?

Hi,

It was OK for me to download file from a link before, but since a while ago, when I single click on any link (ex., Firefox Installer) it showed nothing and nothing happened (Normally I think dialog about if open or save/when to save should pop up). I also try other way to open the link then: 1. If I try to open a new tab on link, then a empty tab was opened (as attached image). 2. If I right click the link and click "Save Link As..." then it will pop up the save folder selection dialog.

I hope to have any suggestion to fix this issue. Thanks in advance for any support.

After updating Firefox, I now have a horizontal line across the upper portion of my computer screen. I have uninstalled FF and updated again thinking it would remove it. I have searched for a resolution and nothing has worked for me. I don't want to have to pay an expert to remove the line. Please give me a fix for this as it is really bothersome.

Previously there were no problems but as of late... how come when I search on eBay, the items are not displaying? I provided a screenshot from my computer. As you can see the search shows no items and this happens on every search now. Can you help or can you tell me what's wrong with Firefox for this reason? I'd appreciate it much. Thank you.
