While adding a bookmark, I accidentally hit the 'do not show Editor' button and now I cannot tell Firefox where to save my bookmarks - they are all being directed to one folder. Where do I find the settings to turn it back on?

With Win 10, if I press the right button on the Firefox symbol in the toolbar, a new Firefox appears followed by a 2 in brackets and the number in brackets cannot be deleted. Selecting it with the left button a new session opens which works perfectly. Greetings to all and thanks for the possible solution. Daniele

   An error occurred while processing your request.
   Reference #97.4f397c68.1616602006.71f9255 
  • I have tried adjusting protections to no avail
  • I can sign in using another browser, but NEVER with FireFox.


Any suggestions? Otherwise, I think that I may need to dump FireFox.  :-(

Please continue here: [/questions/1330399]
Possible causes are that security software if blocking access to places.sqlite in the Firefox profile folder.

Did you try to close and restart Firefox or reboot the computer ?

Thank you for your prompt reply.

I do not have any security software that would suddenly block access and it was working fine until yesterday morning.

I have closed and restarted Firefox several times and followed your advice. I have also rebooted my computer.

I just stopped using Chrome because they insisted on spamming me in-app. I do NOT want to get spammed about "features" I couldn't care less about - especially when they show how little they respect me by forcing it on me.

So Failfox is doing the same thing? Forcing the "What's new" AD on me? I do not want it. I will quit using Forcefox if this is their philosophy. Help me remove this SPAM or I'll go find another browser.

For goodness sake, how much longer until every TOS and EULA simply says "You're a slave, shut up or die."?

Firefox 86 for Windows gets a beautiful new Print dialog, with great Print Preview and other functionality. The Mac? Nope!

And there is no technical reason for this! Chrome/Vivaldi/Brave all have a similar dialog box that makes it easy not to waste paper when a website insists on printing a second page for a single word.

Come on, Mozilla! A little feature parity would be nice – especially for such basic functionality!

It was working when the retention system was keeping the entirety of the URL for which I was providing my username and password. It has since been changed so that it drops the last KEYWORD from the URL and now it won't autofill and stupidly demands that I "copy" each of the parts of the login independently from the "logins and passwords" page where the URL has been wrongfully shortened. This is on Firefox v86.0.1 that the botching of the formerly functional login retention procedure occurred. In any event, having to bop back and forth between the login page and the "logins and passwords" page is stupidly requiring vastly more time than simply retyping the entire information into the actual login. Can this NEW BUG be fixed?

When I mistakenly delete a tab I would like to me able to restore it. If it does not already exist, it could be added to the Firefox menu. When I have many tabs open, sometimes I would like to open yet another tab and I mistakenly delete the last tab rather than clicking on +. This might be because the + is not bright white and seems a bit gray, or because I have so many tabs open the delete sign X does not appear.

I recently reinstalled firefox on Windows 10 and see that the ">>" button with More Tools is disabled when I edit the toolbars. Now I have to move additional plugins to a "Hiding menu" which basically is the Bookmarks menu. I want to see my bookmarks always and do do not want to see additional plugins always as they distract me. I've always hid them in ">>" button and this was perfect for me.

How to reenable the hiding functionality?
