I installed Win11, Firefox ESR and tried to import my bookmarks which I exported in Win10 to an HTML file. When I open the HTML file I can see the bookmarks under the Bookmarks Toolbar but these are not imported/visible. After import I can only see the Bookmarks Menu bookmarks.

Hi,

For the past month or more I haven't been able to open my Instagram notifications. Whenever I would click on "activate" on the notification's window the new window with this post would open up. Now it doesn't do anything.

I'm on latest Debian version and latest Firefox version.

What values can it have? Why can't preference entries be deleted (not just given a value of "") by the user? Thank you.

The images or symbols for different websites are not loading in tabs. I have reset several times. I have closed out of the widows and nothing. Is there a fix to have tab images populate normally? I attached a snip of 4 different websites all had images in 2021 and now they will not load.

Never had this problem/glitch ever before! When I attempt to create a new listing and attach 'my' photos, it only imports blocks of color (see attached image)! The only thing I can possibly think what might be happening is I went to the Sherwin-Williams website https://www.sherwin-williams.com/homeowners/color/find-and-explore-colors/paint-colors-by-family/SW9130-evergreen-fog and clicked on "Explore in Colorsnap Visualizer" - which did not work! (However, it does work in Safari and Opera!) We have tried everything to try to delete whatever we may have imported (a virus???), i.e. went to Firefox prefs/Privacy&Security and cleared/managed data (which continually repopulates so the clearing/managing seems to do nada); downloaded a new Firefox app...nothing stops this behavior in eBay (and don't know if this behavior shows up elsewhere). My eBay works fine in Safari and Opera with this situation.

Hello. I want to report a performance issue (slowness) caused by the overexcesive virtual memory usage by Firefox sub-processess.

State description

After runing Firefox, I observed in the htop the process of Firefox (and it's sub-processes) and compared it with the about:processes

I had discovered that main Firefox process opens many sub-processess that aren't even used (they does not appear on the mentioned above "about" page).

Additionally, in some mement, at latest one of the created sub-process start to use 28.6 GB of virtual memory, like each of the created by it sub-process. This causes quite big loose of stability of the browser and even system

While startup of Firefox I'm getting the "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional" error message.

All because Firefox seem to be too stupid to follow a correct symbolic link to place (on another drive) where the file exist and has propper permissions (is accessable).

Thereof, please notify the developers about the described above bug, that it can become quickly fixed. Thanks

For quite a while I am using Firefox and had no issues, but recently, with new version , I am constantly facing two issues 1. the initial load of a page takes more then 30 seconds , sometimes 1 minute, but after the first page has been loaded if I open another page , it will be as usual 2. Completely random and without any sign of slowing down the OS - the OS freezes - nothing works at all and I have to restart it using the power button. ( and this happens when Firefox is open so I doubt Firefox)

Hi, I've updated from ff95 to 96.0.2 and found that my files on google docs have not been loading properly. The text is blurred and it gives an error saying 'some fonts could not be loaded. please reload'. This seems to only happen in firefox and is fine in chrome and as well as when I downgraged to ff95 on my old profile. Back on 96.0.2, I've tried clearing cookies and cache, safe-mode, setting theme to default, all to no avail. Are there any other ways I could troubleshoot this issue? I've attached an image that shows what the text looks like on chrome and the latest version of firefox.

On this site: https://www.orange.pl/twojekonto/zaloguj I can't force firefox to remember username (no problem with remembering password on next step). In older Firefox without WebEx there was addon which allowed to manipulate forms to prepare proper autocompletion data. This addon is not supported with WebEx anymore due to lack of proper functions. Instead Firefox Dev Team claims that mechanism built in current Firefox is enough for such tasks and mentioned addons are not needed. Seems it is wrong thinking.

I tried different approaches to save username for mentioned site but without success.

Hi, when I use Firefox on this machine, the bookmark sync doesn't work as expected. Instead of maintaining the order of the other devices' bookmark toolbar, it is ordering the non-folder bookmarks before the foldered bookmarks. How can I make it so the bookmark toolbar is the same across all devices? I have tried deleted places.sqlite and backupbookmarks folder.

OS: Debian 11

Thank you!

I installed Firefox on a new device and initiated a sync for multi-account containers - it promptly synced in the wrong direction. It eliminated all customization from what should have been the source (the existing device), overwriting it with the default settings of a first-time installation. I was quite surprised.

This leads me to a couple of questions.

1. Is there a sync version history or any way of rolling back a sync? 2. Is there a way to explicitly choose the sync direction?

Quite honestly it is very confusing that there is no reference whatsoever to which way an initial sync will go. I was hesitant to risk this, decided to trust it knew what to do (even though it didn't give me any indication that it did) and lost my gamble.

Firefox knows the device names, so can I suggest some basic reassuring UX be inserted into this process with something like "Initiate sync from X-DEVICE-FIREFOX to Y-DEVICE-FIREFOX?". A bit of clarity would be helpful here, as well as a way to roll back a syncing mistake instead of just having to gamble possibly losing hard-won customization with no going back.

Or have I completely stumbled past some obvious place where everything I'm requesting exists and is accessible already?

Thanks for any help anyone can provide.
