Attempting to find some HELP period is next to impossible using this setup as you have it set. Finally found what was said to be a "SOLUTION" and it did NOT work for my setup, NO HELP at all! I also posted a possible work around for the additional issues with that one problem with the "Other Bookmaks" as it will NOT allow me to DELETE that folder. On top of this issue, every now and then that "Other Bookmarks" duplicates itself and I have had eighteen or more copies of that folder, if any one of those extra copies is removed they are all removed including the one copy that cannot be removed is "STRIPPED" of any saved bookmarks within that folder.

I recommended that anyone with this issue to create a special bookmark folder to save any bookmarks within that "Other Bookmarks" folder before removing any of the copies and save your bookmarks from that "Other Bookmarks" folder. Now I cannot find my original posting to see if there are any updates. When doing what you call a search for FIREFOX only still comes up with over 2K entries and cannot take the time to review them all. This system is a NIGHTMARE to use to find anything.

I was trying in to a website that I used all day yesterday trying to get information to file for funds due me from my husband's military account. I was in and out of the site several times yesterday and need to get another form printed out to complete my requests. For some reason, it will not pull it up again. Just says it cannot access the website and even trying again and again, I cannot get it to work. I HAVE to have these so I can begin receiving funds my husband paid in for me over the years. I am getting upset.

I wonder if someone could help on some questions about `GC` on `firefox`.

    • Q1-** Is possible to call the action performed when I click on the button `GC` using javascript?

https://i.stack.imgur.com/JgoNx.png

    • Q2-** on `about:config` there's an option `javascript.options.gc_delay.full`, is this option the same than clicking on the button `gc` on `about:memory`?

https://i.stack.imgur.com/dimKW.png

    • Q3-** I'm searching about of what of these enumerated options does, and found that:

`1-` Is the default amount of time to wait from the user being idle to starting a shrinking GC.

`2-` `javascript.options.gc_delay` ??

`3-` `javascript.options.gc_delay.full` ??

`4-` `javascript.options.ion.full.threshold` ??

If someone knows the answer to these questions.

Printing from Firefox is really slow--2-3 minutes before the print menu appears, and then another minute before the printer actually goes to work. "Printing" to a .pdf file takes just a long before the file appears on the desktop.

The problem is uniform across all the websites I've tried it on.

I don't have the problem with Safari or Chrome.

Restarting Firefox with add-ons disabled makes no difference. Deleting the printer setting didn't help. Resetting all Firefox printer settings didn't help. Refreshing Firefox helped once, but only for the first print job after the refresh, then the problem reappeared.

This issue started fairly recently, maybe when Firefox v.84 appeared (?)

I'm using Firefox 84.0.2 and macOS Sierra 10.12.6 on a late 2012 iMac.

This problem does not show up in the family's MacBook Pros, which have the same version of Firefox, but newer OS versions.

I'm resistant to updating the OS, because too many of the apps I use regularly don't play nicely with the newer versions of macOS.

Help!

Thanks, Wimsey

Firefox has a "list all tabs" button, which looks like a "v" in the tabs bar, next to the plus. It works great but when I maximize the window (not F11 full screen, but Windows OS Maximize Window), this button disappears. Seems like a bug; I can't think why you would want that button to be removed when the window is maximized.

I have several Extensions enabled like Badger and Weather and several more. Used to have an emblem for each one at the top right of my Firefox Home page but the Extension emblems or icons aren't there anymore. These Extensions are enabled. I can verify that. For instance I know I have the Weather Extension but without the icon to click on I can't open it. How can I put these icons back so I can use them? I looked under options on the General Page and I saw where you can drag icons from there back to the upper toolbar but the icons for my Extensions aren't there to drag back. The Extension icon is there... looks like a piece of a puzzle. I dragged that to the toolbar but when I click on it it goes to a page showing that my extensions are enabled. But I still can't open the Weather extension on that page. I know if I had the weather icon back on the upper toolbar it will show me the weather. Thanks for you help
