I had to do a factory reset of my computer a few months ago and reinstall Firefox. I have never found the bookmark folders that I used when I first got Firefox 88. Folders do not show up when I open the library, select bookmarks and manage bookmarks. Now I put all new ones in bookmark toolbar and they are a long list that is difficult to use. Is there a simple way to find and create folders so I can organize the bookmarks in toolbar and put them in folders?

I could not understand the information in the answers to similar questions. I need simple directions that are not too technical for someone without sophisticated computer skills. Thanks in advance.

In my question above, I have taken out 3 sentences but it still says I have too many characters. At first it said I had 11 more than the 255 limit; after deleting all that, it says I have 40 more. It won't make sense if I take out any more.

I rarely ask for help and try on my own and frequently help others, but I have a problem that I cannot solve and need your help, please.

I have tried the typical things such as restarting, starting in safe mode, refreshing, reinstalling, uninstall and delete folders and profiles then re-install, uninstall and delete folders and profiles and remove all Mozilla/FF entries in the registry then reinstall. No plugins or addons installed.

I tried disabling my anti-virus software.

I have FF version 87.0 64 bit version and even tried with an older 32 bit version. My OS is Windows 10 version 20H2 OS Build 19042.928. Both are the latest versions at the time of this post.


Regardless of what I try, my problem below persists:

When I start FF it almost starts but hangs. I can see it listed in the Task Manager. There is a little activity with Memory and CPU usage for a few seconds then no more. I cannot End Task if I try. It will hang like this for hours. Eventually I will get the home screen. If I attempt to visit a website right away it hangs (two dots blinking left & right like a school bus in the tab). If I do not try to visit a website but wait for a few more hours it will usually connect and be OK. However, if I open a new tab or Private Window I have the same problem in the new one.

Once it is up and running it appears to be working normally except for the new tabs. I have been hibernating my computer with FF open rather than shut down so that I can use it the next day. However, after a number of hours or on another day it will suddenly hang again for an unknown reason. Then I reboot and start the procedure all over.

I have tried every fix I can think of for FF. The problem may be an issue with Windows, but Microsoft has no bulletins or fixes for this one. I have updated to the latest build/version but nothing has changed. Very frustrating.

Any suggestions beyond the things I have already tried would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I've noticed recently that most of my older bookmarks aren't showing up as bookmarked. I keep track of manga by date updated and when I went to check them, nothing that I had bookmarked showed as bookmarked. Yes, I know this website sometimes does that and you just need to refresh the page. However it's not just from that site. It's almost every older bookmark I have. The ones I've done in the last few days show, but again the majority of the others from various sites don't. Any suggestions on how to make them show again? Thank you!

Afternoon everyone... a couple of days ago I suddenly became unable to translate documents in google translate, (https://translate.google.com) and this occurs only using the Firefox browser, it is fine on Chrome. This is not putting text into the box, it is clicking and uploading a document for translation. The upload works fine and I see the source document on the screen, and then it just goes back to the screen with empty source box waiting for me to type into it. I don't know if anyone can help me troubleshoot this one as it might not be a problem with Firefox, but all assistance appreciated. This is happening on all my computers. I believe I have the latest Firefox version (88.0.1)

Thanks

3 days ago Restore previous session stopped working. I lost a LOT of tabs. At the same time, firefox began opening to an empty tab labeled New Tab. When that New Tab is the only thing open in the browser, I can click the hamburger icon to get to the menu, but clicking Preferences does nothing. If I click the plus for a new tab, I get my actual new tab (which is Google) and the Preferences is accessible.

I have reset the checkbox for Restore previous session but it is too soon to know if that will hold.

I have seen suggestions to refresh Firefox as a possible fix. Is there a good way to set up to recover my extensions when I do that? Do I just need to reenable them afterward? Or will they be gone and need to be reloaded?

Hello everyone, I accidentally noticed that when I paste (Ctrl+V) text into the desktop version of Evernote from vk.com, a hyperlink from vk.com appears in Evernote at the top. The link leads to the page from which I took this text. I inserted this text into various text editors by Ctrl+V, plane text without any hyperlinks is inserted. Checked the Windows clipboard, there is also only plane text. Searching the internet, I found a CLCL program that caches the clipboard, and this is what I saw (see the picture in the attachment). I just copied the text, not the page form. Has anyone come across an extension that removes all metadata when copying text from a site page?

I would like to inspect the rendered HTML elements in the iframes, at sites like codepen, codesandbox.

However, the iframe context selector button doesn't show up. Its also greyed out in the dev tools settings, and as visible in the image, I have the required option enabled.

This feature works as intended, in the default versions of Firefox. Tried Firefox Beta version 89.0b9.

I am on Windows 10, using Firefox Developer Edition version 89.0b9.
