The following css used to work to remove items from Bookmarks menu:

#bookmarksToolbarSeparator,#bookmarksMenuItemsSeparator{display: none !important;}
#bookmarksToolbarSeparator,#organizeBookmarksSeparator{display: none !important;}
#bookmarksToolbarSeparator,#menu_bookmarkAllTabs{display: none !important;}
#bookmarksToolbarSeparator,#bookmarksShowAll{display: none !important;}

It no longer works in FF88. How to fix?

N.B. There wasn't a way to hide "other bookmarks" from the bookmarks MENU (This has nothing to do with the unrelated TOOLBAR issue, and the settings for that do not affect the menu)

Только в браузер FireFox происходят проблемы с изменениями шрифтов при отображении информации и отображением картинок. Проблема не статична, а динамична (картинка одна и та же может нормально отобразится а может быт в артефактах). в Chrome и Opera таких проблем нет. OS Windows переустановил, браузер поставил заново - проблема осталась.

Hello,

Ever since I used 'Refresh' to solve a problem, I now have to sign into all my regular sites, like YouTube, FaceBook and especially Twitter, where I receive a warning every time I sign in. (See attachment).

To clarify: before the Refresh, I could just bring up these sites and be automatically signed in. My computer remembers the sign in names and passwords, but I still have to go through the process, and with Twitter, I'm getting these warnings, which has caused that site to ask for more info to verify my identity.

So: why am I coming up as a 'new user' every time I want to go to sites I've been going to for years?

Thank you,

John

I really miss the ability to have a "Save As" choice when i download pdf's or pictures from the web I'm always on the latest version of Firefox but only gets 'Open', Open with' and 'Save'...

Often the downloaded files gets lost in the wrong folder or hide itself with a crazy name that 'the web page' has given it.

AS both Google Chrome and Windows Edge offers that possibility and has for long, please include that feature in the next update...??

Thank You

I'm honestly now sure how best to explain this because it's kind of weird, but I will try my best. Basically, Firefox thinks there's two windows open, when really there is only one. When I right click on the Firefox logo in my Dock (I'm on Mac), it tells me I have two windows open, the main window I use and then a second "What's new with Firefox" window (see screenshot). This is the "invisible" window. I have tried many things to get Firefox to realize that window doesn't exist. I've quit Firefox many times, tried to get my Mac to display all windows (it says there are no open windows when I close out of my main window), restarted my Mac, cleared cache and cookies, removed from Dock, etc. At this point, I don't know what's left to do other than remove Firefox entirely and re-install it and I would hate to do that. I hope I've provided enough detail to get the gist of the issue. If you need any more info, I'm happy to provide it! Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello. Had installed Mozilla awhile back, then uninstalled it but could not remember why. After re-installing, the issue has come back and think it best to ask. I use Free Download Manager and the add-on is active and downloads OK. Problem comes when handling streaming videos. When an object I intend to download has a download button, FDM automatically picks and handles the download; however, when I right-click a streaming video and "Save Video As", Mozilla does not pick the download via FDM but switches to the traditional download method. Interestingly, same scenario in Chrome and Edge, the "save video as" via FDM works picks perfectly. Please help. Thanks

I deleted all my information, data and the Firefox Browser app last year, but my passwords were still leaked. Some passwords I had already changed since the last data breach.

Does anyone know why or how this happened? Is there a way to contact Firefox to delete all of my information permanently from their system to prevent this from happening again?

Firefox removed the "View Image" option from the right click menu. You can "open image in new tab" but that is not the same thing and is not what I'm trying to do. The inconvenience of this removal is driving me mad. "View Image" was literally the only thing Firefox had for me over Chrome and I would really like it back. Is there any way to customize or modify Firefox to regain this option? Or if a developer is hearing this, can you bring back that option somehow? I don't want to run an older version of FIrefox just to have it work, especially with the security risk that poses.

Suddenly, the screen shot option is missing from the "page options" menu. There are numerous "solutions" out there, but none of them work. I type about:config in the address bar and the browser takes me to the search results, not the config screens shown in the solutions. Selecting any of the search results just makes things worse. My version of FireFox is 88.0 (64 bit).

My vertical scroll bar is very thin, barely even visible, like 4 pixels thick. The problem is the same as already posted in these forums, both solutions were only temporary solutions. I'll state them here for simplicity:

a) The first step is to open the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" page and find the button to access the profile folder. You need to create a folder with the name chrome in this folder (name is all lowercase). In the chrome folder you need to create a plain text file with the name userContent.css (name is case sensitive). Paste in "*{scrollbar-color:auto!important; scrollbar-width:auto!important;}"

This worked but then some scroll bars were extremely thick, and even showed while watching YouTube videos.

b) Clearing the startup cache.

Again, this did seem to work, but only temporarily. I removed the file from step a) and it remained fine until a day or two later.
