OK. someone kindly offered me a new-to-me computer and claimed that they had transferred everything to the newish one. Well, what they did was take my umpteen gazillion desktop shortcuts and place them all in "bookmarks menu". EEK.` That's way too many. So I exported them to an html file/link/firefox internet shortcut on the desktop called "bookmarks.html". Worked swell. However, the bookmarks menu went along. It no longer appears under"bookmarks" on the menu bar. I was able to get it onto the toolbar. (star in tray). If I click on that, and then select "bookmarks sidebar", what appears in the sidebar is perfect. Just like new. But on the menu bar, on the dropdown menu under "bookmarks", no "bookmarks menu".

I can live with this BUT I really don't want to BECAUSE there are bizillion bookmarks in the bookmarks menu. I need to send them someplace (or gather them into a NEW folder, so that I can add newly created bookmarks and be all neat and organized.

How do I put the "bookmarks menu" that shows on the sidebar back under "bookmarks" ??? How do I get the bizillion bookmarks off of "bookmarks menu"? Is there a "select all", then "delete"? I don't want to lose the ones in the html folder on the desktop. I am happy with them being in an html folder on my desktop. Should I change the name of the html link to XYZ.html?

I just do not understand how the sidebar can look perfect but the menu bar doesn't.

Help, please !

Firefox, Instacart, and SNAP - which is the weak link?

Very suddenly, I cannot buy groceries through Instacart with SNAP. Everyone wants me to use some other browser, but I really don't want to do that.

I'm using macOS 10.15.7 (Catalina) and Firefox for Mac 94.0.2 .

Whenever I go through the regular checkout process, when I click on "Place Order," I get the attached error message.

I cannot tell you how many times I've readded that number; I can't have been wrong on all of them. Yes, there's enough money on the card. I've tried (suggestion of their "support theater" people) deleting the card, logging out of Instacart, quitting Firefox, restarting Firefox (which I did twice to be sure), and adding the EBT number back in.

I even tried my sister's number, to see if it would go through. Same result.

Once I saw a brief flash of something like "Connect to EBT" before getting the error message, but only once.

I have ordered groceries through Firefox for Mac with SNAP on this computer before. Both SNAP and Instacart deny responsibility and tell me to use Safari (which I loathe).

Does anyone have any ideas? If it works in Safari, what's different about Firefox that's stopping it?

Please, grocery delivery is not a luxury for my sister and me. We literally (I was a copyeditor, so I do mean literally) cannot get to the store ourselves. I absolutely must be able to place SNAP orders via Instacart.

Thank you.

I cancelled my LinkedIn account about 5 years ago and haven't used it since then. I am therefore puzzled as to why it keeps showing up as having had a "data breach" and why this matters at all?! There was also some "data breach" in regard to a website for Avatars?! I have never heard of this website and can't imagine why I would ever use it! Why did this show up as a breach in my account?!

In regard to the specific accounts which have had a data breach, I have either cancelled them, deleted them, or have no memory of ever having used them in the first place. I have also changed my passwords for all of my email accounts, many times over the past 5 years, so again, I have no idea how information from a cancelled account could be of use to anyone. Can someone explain this to me?! Thank you!

Title basically says it all. This newest update of Firefox has had multiple problems, starting with losing ALL my previous bookmarks and making me create them all over again. The latest issue is something I can't patch up myself. When I right-click the tabs bar to select "Reopen Closed Tab," it's now buried beneath some non-functioning drop-down arrow. Why? The drop arrow takes up the same amount of space the Reopen Closed Tab does. There's no room saved. As an added insult, arrow doesn't actually work. I can't click it. I can't scroll down through the options. I can't do anything. Reopen Closed Tab is now buried and completely unusable. If this continues, I'll be forced to downgrade to the previous Firefox to get rid of this problem. How do I solve this?

On certain pages, the rendering is completely off. For example, on Vimeo.com, all the text is gone (see attached pics). I tried Refresh Firefox, but the problem persists. I tried Troubleshoot Mode and that fixes the problem. But when I restart and disable all of my extensions, the problem continues.

This only happens on my work computer Firefox. The Firefox versions at home on multiple computers work just fine.

Any thoughts?
