I am no longer able to add or delete my bookmarks. When I right click delete for a bookmark, nothing happens. When I click to add a bookmark, nothing happens. This still occurs when I start firefox in safe mode. I have tried turning on sync to see if I could edit my bookmarks from my mobile, but the bookmarks failed to sync. I do not have any add-ons. I currently am on a linux OS installed on a macbook. I did not have this problem until the past month or so.

Some people recommended here using Zotero in order to keep the functionality of the "Description" field in bookmarks which was taken away after v. 62. Unfortunately a) There is zero information here on actually using it and achieving any sort of acceptable results re: bookmarks, and b) It's complicated and it doesn't even import the bookmarks file.

I installed Zotero v 5. Have to also install Zotero for Firefox extension. This is hidden in documentation (one or the other does basically nothing, have to install both). I tried to import FF bookmarks.html, it proceeded to use 50% of CPU resources, memory used by the program went up to 800 MB, and after 15 minutes the import bar was at 0%. I tried to import the bookmarks.json file, it doesn't support it.

Any suggestions?

Hi,

I have reinstalled my Debian, keeping of course my `/home`. New Firefox version is `68.12.0esr`. A new profile has been created, but I need the old one which I can set as default in the profile manager at the url `about:profiles`, but Firefox tells me "Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history.....". So, it seems I need to install the same version of Firefox I had before, but I don't know which one it was, and I would like to avoid to make many trials.

Is there a mean to know which Firefox version is associated to a given profile?

hello,

since last Update in Windows 10 Enterprise to Build 20231.1000 i get a 'Blue Stop Screen', when i try to move the Mouse Cursor to the MenuBar ONLY of Nightly or Firefox.

I have the same Error on Nightly AND Firefox, i have restart the Browsers with disabled Add-Ons, i have reset the Browsers, deinstalled and new installed, i have try it with older Versions, but every time, when i come with the Cursor to the MenuBar, Windows stop.

I Know, that the showed Error 'APC_index_Mismatch win32kfull.sys' is a Windows Error, but this Error comes only with Firefox and Nightly, but on no other Software and Programs. I disabled all not neccessary Services, i start with normal Mode, nothing works. i deinstalled a lot of drivers and next try: no Help, same Error.

Also i tried WaterFox, and funnily, there is NO problem or stopping...

Somebody with same problem, somebody know the answer?

Hi,

I had asked already this question and it didn't get any answer. It is pretty annoying so I will post it again.

When I search in the address bar ONE word and tap enter Firefox tries to go to this page (without the .com) it takes a while and eventually shows the google results.

It is very tedious

I have to select the search option in the drop down menu.

Also no search recomendations

Attached a screenshot

What can I do to search directly?

thanks

Hello,

I've saved my bookmarks by using Export bookmarks to HTML". But the "tags" and "keywords" fields are not listed on the created page.

How do i save tags and keywords?

Related question: I'm using a Mac... where are the tags and keywords stored? Is that in /Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/(profile name)/bookmarkbackups/bookmarks-(date)(hash)==.jsonlz4 ? How would i read that and be able to utilize the tags and keywords from there?

Thank you for any clues.

I am attempting to perform a 2 steps verification.

Firefox is asking me: "Open your authentication app and enter the security code it provides." What "Authentication app"?? On my Mac? On my iPhone? I have been unable to figure out what Firefox means.

I have tried a number of those apps, but none of the codes was accepted (Authenticator, Google's Authenticator, iDnow).

Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated. /Boris D.

When, I try to connect the wifi, wifi will connected after few hour automatically. It show the following error:

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at mnit.ac.in. If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

Try again later.
 Check your network connection.
 If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

Please give your valuable suggestion.

I'm on Mac. When I open a PDF in Firefox I get a print button and a download button. The download button does not offer a Save As option. It simply uses the name used in the browser - often this is a number or day or some other appellation that is less useful than allowing me to rename the PDF myself. Chrome offer to rename the file before saving but I hate Chrome.

Maybe I'm overlooking something?

Dears,

 Due to a mysterious reason, the password manager of firefox on my home PC does not want to keep in memory my login/pwd for a given site. I mean: this works well for other sites (as well a brother site of the problematic one, as well as the problematic site with the same version of firefox but on another PC). But, never mind.

As a workaround, I would like to be able to manually add a new login/pwd in the password manager. How to do this?

we have all Win10 in our enviromnet with 200+ endpoints all running FF as default browser. Our core banking platform is supported in FF and many of our 3rd party apps require us to use FF. Since the FF update in June, we are having random users crash everyday and the only thing that will get them working is to re-install FF we have the latest ESR and the regular version all on latest versions . Out of 200 or so PCs, we have at least 4 or 5 random users crashing daily. its not happening for me, but for many others its a regular thing.

Is there a paid option for FF support to help troubleshoot this? we cannot just go to another browser at this time. below is an example of error. can provide crash reports if needed. we have sent some crash reports but nothing so far has fixed this. Boss man thinks its due to one program or another causing this to close xul.dll __ just started crashing again with every launch.
