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.

Clearing cache is not clearing cached style sheet - soooo frustrating!

I have been building websites using Firefox for a good 10 years now, but over the last year or so clearing the cache has become more and more frustrating and it's making Firefox unusable for developing websites.

Basically, I am making edits to a website's style sheet and uploading it and the new style sheet is not then being loaded in Firefox.

I have spent the last hour+ looking for a definitive answer to this problem.

I am using both methods I know for clearing cache

1) click on the burger and go to Privacy and Security / go to cookies and site data / click clear data / leave "cached web content" clicked on (switch off "Cookies and Site data") / click clear

2) hold command / shift / R

Most of the time it seems both these methods don't seem to work as the browser won't load the new style sheet.

I know the style sheet has uploaded as when I test the site in Safari (I might have to use the Empty Caches function once) and the new style sheet loads straight away.

I don't know what I'm doing wrong, or may be I am missing something fundamental that will cure this problem - all I can say is, it is very, very, very annoying - and really wastes time when you're trying to work.

Is anyone else getting these problems and is there a quick and easy way to be ensuring the cached css file does not keep loading.

btw I also used a private window and was still getting the same problem.

I like using Firefox and don't really want to use another browser as they are rubbish in other ways, but feel like I'm getting to a point where I have no option if I don't find out how to solve this problem.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Regards

D

The title says it all - Do I still need addon HTTPS Everywhere if I enable Enable HTTPS-Only Mode in all windows in Firefox 83.0?

I don't want the two features to conflict or disable each other in some way. Is HTTPS Everywhere by the Electronic Frontier Foundation still necessary?

Hello, A couple weeks ago my Quickbooks Online software began requiring 2 tier authentication. This feature is disabled within the software settings and does not happen when using a Macbook. According to Quickbooks this issue is due to the browser (Firefox). I didn't change any setting prior to this issue. I did however reset to the default settings but the problem is not resolved. I've searched the Firefox settings for a solution but was unsuccessful. Can anyone help?

Thanks, Kathy

Bookmarks & Passwords from damaged Windows login

I used some software that damaged one of the Windows user accounts (a local account, not a Microsoft one). I can no longer open Firefox to export the bookmarks. However, from another Windows login I am able to access the profile files, where a page on this site (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profiles-where-firefox-stores-user-data) says they are stored. I copied both folders to the desktop of the other user account. Now, how can I get Firefox to access the data in those files? I would like the passwords especially, but also the bookmarks if possible. I'm willing to open an entirely new user account on the computer, if that is required, and deposit the files there (I'll probably end up doing that anyway; the user account they came from is damaged beyond repair, and the one I'm using now is for business, not my personal use).

Malware Auto Download with Capital One Download URL

I happened on a page: https://capitaloneshopping.com/join-capital-one-shopping?utm_source=Meerkat&utm_campaign=107592707702&utm_term=472928718855&gclid=EAIaI… (read more)

I happened on a page: https://capitaloneshopping.com/join-capital-one-shopping?utm_source=Meerkat&utm_campaign=107592707702&utm_term=472928718855&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI0Ij6h5iD7QIVgi0MCh2TLgrJEAEYASAAEgJALvD_BwE

And it immediately began "downloading an app" and I quit the page before it could get far, but, obviously, that doesn't mean it stopped. However, now Firefox is acting a little wiggy, and I'm concerned it might have downloaded something that's affecting the browser. Was trying to read about "capital one shopping malware," and pages wouldn't open when any links on the search results were clicked, etc.

Is this a known issue? Resolutions offered?
