I searched for a fix, it says (from 2016) if you are using 64 bit firefox you must switch to 32, beause the flashplayer for 64 bit firefox doesn't support Context3D. But that is completely irrelevant because I am using a 32bit firefox and getting the error. from what I've searched it's not flashplayer causing it. and I have just installed the newest flashplayer.

I have various login usernames and passwords for various websites. Firefox (version 72.0.1) seems to remember the usernames and passwords ok, so I must have some settings right. But it won't log into those websites automatically when I click on a bookmark. The screen opens with the fields filled in, but I have to click through each login screen until I eventually reach the web site's home page. Under internet explorer the website home page would just open as soon as I clicked the bookmark link in my favorites When I go to about:config and search signon, then signon.rememberSignons is set to "true" signon.autofillForms is also set to "true"

Starting today, Netflix will not run on Firefox. At first I got an error message from Netflix saying to update Firefox, but it's already up to date. Now, the red "loading" circle goes around and around, but the show won't start AND the error message no longer appears. Netflix works fine on Chrome, but I'd rather be using Firefox.

When I was organizing several bookmarks in my Bookmark Folder entitled "Main Dishes" (as I remember), I believe I double clicked or similar and lost the total folder which contains between 100 & 200 bookmarks! I have not turned off my computer. The closest topic I could find has to do with "Smart Bookmark Folders" which does not seam to apply. If my brain is correct on this, I thought I saw right below the Smart Bookmark folder the appropriate topic regarding bringing back a bookmark folder, but somehow that topic has seemed to disappear. This folder's information has been gathered over a period of 2 to 3 years. I would be so grateful if you could help me. Thank You....Charles Perryman PS...I AM SO SORRY...SOMEHOW THE FOLDER HAS NOW REAPPEARED IN MY LIST OF FOLDERS!!!! I AM SORRY TO TAKE YOUR TIME ON THIS....I AM VERY HAPPY, BUT VERY DUMBFOUNDED!!!!

So many websites have these info bars that stay at the top of the page as you scroll down, wasting valuable vertical space. I can remove them by blocking that element in adblocking extensions but I wonder if there was a way of getting rid of them entirely, perhaps something in about:config? I don't even know how to describe them. Is "floating" the right term or should it be "fixed" or "permanent"? Its hard to find something if you don't know its name!

I'm finally moving to Windows 10 with a new computer. I want to keep my Firefox bookmarks, saved passwords, and (if possible) settings from my old Windows 7 computer.

After installing Firefox on my new computer, do I need to do anything more than copy to the new (10) computer the final profile from my old (7) computer?
