I recently installed windows on a new solid state hard drive, and did a fresh install of firefox, but I forgot to manually backup my bookmarks. The old install is still on the old windows hard drive, is there a way for me to move them onto the new install? I'd prefer to not have to rebuild the whole list from scratch!

this message is constantly preventing me from entering my g-mail site

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to myaccount.google.com because this website requires a secure connection. What can you do about it? myaccount.google.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site. The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it. You can notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

lease list a step by step process to deal with this issue, thanks

The scrolling speed in Bookmarks folders when hovering over top or bottom of list is too fast. When trying to drag a new bookmark to a Sub-folder in the Bookmarks Toolbar, and you need to scroll down in the list of folders, you hover over the bottom of the displayed drop-down. But it scrolls so fast that you go past the folder you are trying to drag n drop the new bookmark into. So you hover over the top of the list and it scrolls up so fast that again, you go past the folder you are looking for. Is there any way to control this scrolling speed? It's my only gripe about the BEST BROWSER. I have thousands of Bookmarks and hundreds of Folders. PLEASE HELP Thanks Regards

Some of my bookmarks have only the generic "globe" icon even I can see the icon on the "tab" when I open the webpage. I also tried:

  • to remove the bookmark and add it back
  • to install some add-ins to customize the icon
  • to clear cache
  • to use different computer

One of the examples with missing icon in bookmarks is "https://app.powerbi.com/home". When i tried different browser (Edge, Chrome), it worked there.

entire firefox toolbar enters overflow menu thingy when i watch videos in full screen (player full screen not FF/f11 fullscreen), this also happens even when i reset toolbar to default, all of it still enters overflow, and i have to press F11 twice to get it "out" this is totally new, (didn't even know there was an overflow thingy), in over a decade of firefox never encountered this seen it, to the point i didnt' realize overflow was a thing, and on a new install i can't seemingly to get it to not keep "eating" my toolbar

this is super annoying, and i would really really like a way to "Lock" my toolbar so this doesn't happen, and i can't imagine it's normal in anyway, specially when it happens on default and a clean install/empty browser, please help get back to normal toolbar "sticky"

How can I add a webpage shortcut to the FireFox home page in Windows 10? I just want to simply add a shortcut to a webpage that is currently not on the home page, in spite of having visited it several times. since the automatic adding of visited sites is not consistent (some sites do not show up on the home page no matter how often I visit them while others that I have visited once act like they are pinned, but they are not), I need to be able to add a website shortcut manually, and none of the help articles that I have found successfully do that. at least in my current version of Firefox, which is version 108.0.2 (64-bit).

Hello,

I have a really high RAM usage with Firefox.

What is intriguing, is, from the "about:performance" tab I totalize 6.02 GiB of RAM. And from the System Monitor, 14.59 GiB (+242.4%).

I suspect a memory leak.

Attached: - Screenshots of the System Monitor - Screenshots of the "about:performance" tab

Hi! I greatly appreciate your support! Since the upgrade to 108.0.1 Firefox for Windows 10, I cannot send my tweets in Twitter because when my photo pops in, it covers up the Tweet button. I was able to send it on 12/29, last Thursday. I noticed it stopped working around 5 days ago. I need to be able to scroll down to see the tweet button. I cannot send my tweets. I never had this problem before and I've been doing it the same way for years. People using different browsers are able to send my tweet using the scroll bar as normal. There is a lengthy work around where I put the mouse on the top of the tweet and use the mouse wheel. It takes me to the tweet button avoiding using the scroll bar. I would have to do this for 250 people. It's not very practical. I am a volunteer for National Wildlife Federation. Please help! Thank you so much! - ToSt

When you're in a fullscreen tab, like a youtube video, and use the command for a new tab (ctrl + t) you are not directly in the address-bar in that new tab.

If you're in a non-fullscreen tab and use the command, then you are directly in the address-bar.

This is inconsistent and annoying. If you are watching an English youtube video and you come across a word you don't know, and you press "ctrl + t" to get to a new tab, you're not in the address-bar to type something like "meaning word".

Is this a bug? Is this an intended feature? How do I fix this? Is there a setting for this in about:config?

Is there a way to enable this?
