I'm setting up a user on a new computer. I've exported her bookmarks from her old computer. On the new computer I go to Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks > (select bookmarks toolbar) > Import and Backup > Import bookmarks from HTML. I browse to my folder containing the bookmarks.html file, Open it, and nothing.

I've tried all the suggestions I can find. Places Database Verify Integrity gives me: > Task: checkIntegrity + The places.sqlite database is sane + The favicons.sqlite database is sane > Task: checkCoherence + The database is coherent etc. Opening the bookmarks.html file shows a list of bookmarks. That file is not empty.

This shouldn't be this hard. How do I accomplish this?

Hello everyone,

I have checked on other browsers (Edge and Opera), and I have no problem with them. Its also ok on my mobile phone ... with Firefox !

Thank you for your attention and any help you can provide.

Above 70-75k characters, text input fields on any site have a ton of input lag -- like, I have to wait 10s after I type a sentence for the sentence to finish slowly updating letter by letter. I've tested across multiple sites, and in Private mode (to confirm it's not caused by extensions, none of which are allowed in Private mode).

I also tried setting `accessibility.force_disabled=1` as suggested here and here, but that didn't help (and yes, I restarted). Disabling hardware acceleration didn't help either.

Locking this thread, please continue here: [/questions/1443259]
We have enabled the "Prevent changing proxy settings" policy from the Group Policy Management Console. However, we've encountered an issue where Firefox browser overrides this policy. It has come to our attention that Firefox is the only browser that allows users to change the default Windows proxy settings directly from the browser itself.

To address this, we want to prevent users from changing proxy settings via Firefox browser as well. Could you please provide guidance on how to disable this feature?

Please help.

I have always loved Firefox. I started using it because it did not constrict the user to the limits of the narrow minded Microsoft Explorer (Edge). But, this latest update reminds me of what I came to Firefox for. I hope Firefox is not going to become the same way. This latest update (124.0.1) just didn't care about my bookmarks or extensions or anything. It just installed a new version and left it at that. I had several tabs open. Gone. I had several bookmarks. Gone. All extensions. Gone.

For a long time Firefox just updated and left all of those things in tact. What happened?? More importantly, does anyone know how to get these things back?

I would really appreciate your help.

Thank you, Luke

The solution given by cor-el works very well.

Thanks cor-el ! I needed that.

But you won't know it until you access more unique folders than you already have in the list.

For instance, when you access the 8th folder that is different it will be sticky, when you access a 9th that is different it will be sticky. Kind of like a "most recently used" list. You won't see the extras until they happen.

Solution given by Cor-el: There is a pref on the about:config page that defaults to 7 to set the number of entries to show in this list of recently used folders.

- about:config => browser.bookmarks.editDialog.maxRecentFolders = 7
- https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/about-config-editor-firefox

I installed Firefox on a new computer running Windows 11. I use the X-notifier plug-in to access my Gmail account but can't get X-notifer to run properly on this new install. I was getting an error message, but now it says "Can always read and change data on this site" yet the envelope icon does not appear in my tool bar like it does on my old computer.

As an alternative, I signed into my Gmail account so I can read my email on a browser page. While that works, it works too well -- as soon as a new email arrives, the browser tab running Gmail pops to the top and interrupts anything that I am doing -- even when I am typing a new email or filling out a form on another tab.

The only way I can deal with this is 1) sign out of Gmail until I want to check it, or 2) pull the Gmail tab to a separate window and minimize it so it can't interfere with what I am doing.

I'd like to know if there is a fix for the X-notifier plug-in or a way to stop the Gmail tab from "taking over" the browser.

I don't have the words to describe what's happening here. Please see screenshot. Frequently when using Firefox- since the latest update, it's up-to-date on up-to-date Macbook Sonoma 14.4- this starts happening, when I move around my cursor, the images get all funky, it seems to be pulling in visual information from multiple tabs. Restarting the app clears it out, until the next time it happens. Any thoughts on this?

EMBARRASSINGLY I REALIZED WHAT I NEEDED TO DO. THIS IS THEREFORE NO LONGER NEEDED TO BE ANSWERED, SO YOU CAN SIMPLY MARK IT SOLVED IF YOUD LIKE. THANKS!

I chose to reinstall Firefox browser in order to start over fresh and ensure a security refresh. Once installed, I created an entirely new Mozilla account with new info. However, when I go up to the top right of the browser and click on the little icon of the circle with a bust in it (the Account icon), it simply opens the preferences and related settings, it does not allow me to sign in to any account, nor does it show if I am already signed into any account. Is this a malfunction of the iteration I installed, or am I misunderstanding something?

Thanks in advance for your help!

I have noticed a bug with how the Firefox icon appears when launched in the Windows 11 taskbar when the never group option is enabled. When Firefox is launched and is the only application open in the taskbar, there is no label present next to the icon like other programs have when launched. There is the little line underneath the icon though indicating it is launched but that is it. As soon as I open another application though, the label will also appear for Firefox. This is only a minor annoyance but is definitely as bug at least for me and should be pretty easy to fix. I will attach screenshots of the behavior. In the first screenshot, you can see that Firefox is open but has no Text label like it is supposed to. The second screenshot is as soon as I open a second application.

I am on Windows 11 Home 23H2 Build 22631.2792 Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.22681.1000.0 Firefox Version: 120.0.1

My home screen and all other browsing screens are so high and wide that I can't scroll down because the side slide bar is not on the screen. I have no idea how this happened! I can't find any articles that help me reduce the screen size that I can understand. There seems to be no solution option in firefox settings to adjust the screen size. The View tab does not help because it just offers zooming of the data on the screen, not the actual size of the screen.

On Mac OS 14.4 Firefox hangs on launch and crashes, requiring "Force Quit" when I try to Refresh or Troubleshoot. Uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times, and restarted computer several times. Have spent several hours trying multiple community suggestions to now avail.

I am not a programmer, but am able to follow instructions. I clearly need someone to hold my hand and walk me through the solution. (I even checked out the Kaspersky suggestion, but cannot install it because Firefox cannot connect to the Internet.)

I have downloaded and saved "Raw Data.docx" and "Application Basics tex.docx" from one of the crash reports.

P.S. On this question form Firefox guessed that my operation system was Mac OS x 10_15_7, but it is 14.4

My Firefox Browser on (Windows 11) updated on 23rd March 2024. Now my History and Bookmarks have been deleted (but not cookies for some reason). yes, it is my correct profile as I checked the dates and also double checked it against a backup I made 2 weeks ago.

Have included an image of my 'more troubleshooting information' details - I'm sure this is supposed to have more data on the page?

If there is no way to recover my hisotry and bookmarks, I see there in my profile folder is a 'bookmarksbackup' folder which contains .jsonlz4 files, one of which was saved on the 21st March 2024. I know book marks are .json files, can anyone tell me how to turn a .jsonlz4 file to a .json?

[Oh, I pressed to add here my 'troubleshooting information' as directed by this forum page and it said it couldn't automatically do it, and when I pressed 'manual', it opened that over this page and so when I pressed 'back' it had naturally deleted this post so I've had to retype everything from memory, thanks so much Mozilla for that. How about a warning that this will happen?]

When attempting to install an extension and clicking on "Add to Firefox" the button is replaced with a "Cylon" throbber and the popup dialog asking to confirm the install never highlights the "Add" button. The browser will stay in this state indefinitely until the tab for the extension install is closed.

Could this be a permissions problem involving the ".mozilla" directory tree in the home directory? I've been having this problem regardless of the FF version for some time (going back to at least v110.x). The recent issue involves that 115.9 ESR version installed in Debian Bookworm.

TIA...
