Just today 7/17/21 my bookmarks toolbar disappeared but I was able to restore it. But all the saved bookmarks in the bookmarks toolbar that always appeared in Bookmarks Toolbar don't appear in the Bookmarks Toolbar column. AND when I try to add bookmarks to the bookmark toolbar a circle with a line through it appear preventing me from adding bookmarks. Couldn't find any solutions online in Firefox Help websites. Does anyone have a solution to restore saved bookmarks to bookmarks toolbar and add new bookmarks like I have always done? Thank you.

When I try and print a page - say a receipt from an Amazon purchase, or a medical bill, or anything else!!! - firefox will not print the $$s on the right side of the page. It doesn't matter - when I select print - if I go to 70% (which i normally use) of if I go to 60% or 50%, the page prints, but the right side with the actual cost amount is missing. The full page DOES show in the print preview, but NOT on the printed page. Please help. I DO NOT like the new print window...may decide to - after many years - abandon Mozilla and Firefox. Lousy change several months ago in the Firefox print window and selection/option screen. It is REALLY aggravating and I, for one, do NOT like it. Please help me print the whole damned page. Thanks for the attention and a quick response. V/r, Dennis BTW, Win 10 Home, on a fast gaming desktop (works well), using Cox Communications as my cable provider for internet.

I recently reinstalled Firefox after doing a full Windows reinstall on my PC. Since then, my bookmarks are not displaying on the bookmarks toolbar. I've "refreshed" Firefox from the control panel, rebooted my PC, and reinstalled Firefox. I've also moved the bookmarks from the toolbar folder in the bookmark manager and then put them back. Any suggestions?

The last Firefox update has messed with my printer settings and the entire page (width) doesn't print on 1 page anymore. It completely cuts it off and doesn't print it. This happens in multiple programs when I print so it seems like it has to be Firefox and not any of the multiple programs. I've looked at the FF settings but nothing is jumping out at me as needing to be adjusted. Any help is appreciated. Thx

I have several hundred tabs, tick them all and want to bookmark them, but that never works. I'm not sure what "tick them all" refers to.

There's no built-in way to bookmark all open tabs across all windows at once, but Firefox does have a feature to bookmark all of the tabs in the current window to a new folder. The shortcut is Ctrl+Shift+D, or you can find it on

classic Bookmarks menu on the optional menu bar optional Bookmarks menu button for the main toolbar Does that feature work? If not, is there any error message?

Are you still able to add one bookmarks manually, for example by clicking the star icon in the address bar? If that doesn't work, it can indicate a database problem (more details if needed).

I will also add that the "Settings" menu does not open! Settings, formerly called Options, should open an internal page in a new tab. If you type or paste the address about:preferences into the address bar and press Enter, can Firefox show the page?


==Ctrl+Shift+D = NOT WORK / NOR REACTION / NO MESSAGE ERROR /NOTHING HAPPEN This marks 1000 Tabs, but nothing else can be done, no reaction, no error, no message, I don't know how to write or add 1000 tabs to the bookmarks, I asked a many developers, for 3 years and no one can help, I tried 100 different ways and there's nothing I can do, do I really need to lose my data? "Reset firefox completely" = data loss Even moving the profile and trying to restore it always ends with the same problem, still nothing works, how to save all 1000 tabs to a text file, even the best of the best ways fails, because after saving it is 0KB, no data !!!

I'm on firefox 90.0.1 on Mac OSX Big Sur 11.2.3. When I try to delete a site certificate that I have (that is about to expire), it appears deleted, but when I open the certificates page again it reappears. When I restart Firefox after deletion it reappears. When I delete cert9.db from my default profile after closing firefox, and then reopen, it still reappears. When I uninstall Firefox, delete the default profile folder from App Data and the Mozilla and Firefox folders from my caches, it still reappears (I also deleted the update folder).

I am doing sync between this mac, my phone, and another computer, but I ONLY have bookmarks, Add-ons, and history. Might the sync be also syncing my certificates?

Help/tips would be appreciated.

[SOLVED] How to prevent website body background color from coloring my scrollbars?

I operate a website in which the body background is black. My background image has a black background. And inside the body, I place a white-background div, which carries the text. My issue is, the scroll trough is some shade of black and the scrollbar is a lesser shade of black.

On any white-body website, I have visible shades of grey and I can see my scrollbar controls.

Where do I go to apply !important CSS rules to my browser interface? I want to establish a suitable color scheme for my scrollbars that override website CSS.

//EDIT: I've found a few typos and fixed them, above. I have then added the text below:.

If I edit the stylesheet to change the body background color on the website, it affects the scrollbar coloring, and ruins the website appearance.

Only if some developer would use the Linux system colors in Firefox so that theme colors are the same in Firefox as they are in the Linux apps that follow the rules, then Firefox would be a much better browser. Is there an add-on that will resolve this issue?

Is there a CSS fix that I can apply? In past decades, websites wanted to color the scrollbars but they are the property of the user, not an extension of the website. What's become of that idea?

Hello, I have Firefox on all of my devices (Win10Pro, Fire tablet, Samsung phone, etc.). Recently got a Raspberry Pi 4 (Linux) with a 24" (1920x1080) monitor and Firefox (78.11.0esr 32 bit) seems to 'default' to Mobile. How do I change to Desktop globally? Google Search comes up in the middle third of the screen. (Search dropped "Linux" from the search I tried on subject - Google is becoming worthless.) Amazon.com comes up as text on the left side. I don't want to have to manually change from Mobile to Desktop for each site that I visit. PLEASE, don't make me use Chromium....

Thanks!

In Firefox 90.0.1 (64bit) Windows 10, the text in certain web pages, include the main news page of bbc.com has become completely invisible (no width but they are there).

I have disabled all extensions but the problem is still there. I have also tried turning off graphics acceleration but the problem still persisted.

However, if I start Firefox in Safe Mode then the problem goes away. How should I pin point the cause of the issue?

The other day I started seeing a white bar at the top of full screen videos. Not just YouTube but any site that uses a video. It's very annoying. I've tried disabling ad blocking, various features in Firefox, my AV, plugins, and anything else I can find to no avail. Using the Developer tools doesn't see anything where the white bar is. It's driving me nuts! What would be causing this white bar and how do I remove it?

Hi, I have seen instructions on the Google search on how to do this but the instructions don't line up with the current version of Firefox. YouTube videos are all about using code which is beyond me.
