Several months ago I lost the ability to bookmark multiple tabs into a new Folder. When I perform the procedure and give the new folder a unique name, the selected bookmarks appear in the generic "Bookmarks Menu" section and the folder I specified with the unique name is created but is empty. Also, I cannot even store a single tab to an existing folder of Bookmarks. When I select the existing folder after CNTRL+D, the bookmark just goes to my generic "Bookmarks Menu" section and not to the existing folder I selected. I have reloaded Firefox but the problem continues. Can someone help me? Thanks.

Hello. Can someone please explain why Facebook asks for username/password every single time Firefox is restarted? I do not use cookie-cleaning extensions. They also send a 'login attempt' email and phone notification every time.

Tried with and without Facebook Container. Not using other Container/multi-account related extensions. My settings:

Standard Tracking Protection (allow/block exceptions: none) "Do not track" signal: Always Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed: disabled (no exceptions) History - Firefox will: Remember History

Thank you

Hello,

The answer to the three most important questions in Real Estate is: Location, Location, Location!

The most important answer to my question is: How do I prevent my physical location from being discovered while using the internet?

Recently, I received an email from Moz://a and my physical location was identified. How do I prevent anyone, especially Banks, from knowing where I am physically located?

I've used many VPNs and they work work surprisingly well on many websites but recently I've been denied access to my bank accounts: "Your user name has been disabled." I am not in a position to call their "customer service number".

Do VPNs use only one IP address to substitute for my IP address?

Is it probable that banks know these substituted IP addresses and block them simply becasue they are associated with a VPN?

Thank you in advance for your Kindness.  :-}

Dear community, as per title, my spellcheck is enabled but it doesn't work and the right-click contextual menu does not appear but this happens only when I write emails on the GMAIL webapp.

I have the checkbox in the settings ticked. I have the about:config layout.spellcheck entry set to 2. I have installed multiple dictionaries (and yes, they are dictionaries and NOT language packs).

Even if all looks correct, the spellcheck doesn't work; moreover, the contextual menu that should appear when I right-click to select the language is not there.

I mean, it works whilst I am writing this message but not on the GMAIL webapp.

I am on Windows. On the same machine I have 2 accounts (one personal and one for work) and the other account works flawlessly on the GMAIL webapp.

Am I missing something?

Thank you very much for the help  :)

Kindest regards Eugenio

This seems to be a recent issue. Normally, when I click a link for a map (such as "get directions" for a business,) the map will be rendered in Google Maps. This is good for my use, because I'm looking for Latitude/Longitude and distances, and this is easy in Google Maps. However, the maps now default to MapQuest. I'm not finding any setting in the browser to change that.

Can you help? This problem has sent me back to using Chrome.

Thank you,

Ben

On upgrading to Firefox ver 118.02, I cannot get any toolbar icons to appear in their correct place on the bookmarks toolbar. Instead they are crammed in the middle of the second (address) line. The double chevrons can be used to access the remaining of the toolbar icons.

Dragging a link to the toolbar space is not allowed.

Please fix this. I need easy access to ALL my toolbar icons, and have an expanded search box on the second line.

Hi, why does Firefox always download PDF files, no matter what option you chose (open with Firefox, open with other Adobe, always ask...)? It just does the same thing Chrome does, and I don't like Chrome for that reason too. I would like to see PDF files in Firefox or Adobe for instance, without downloading them. Thanks.

Not exactly sure when it started, but youtube shorts are broken in Firefox now.

You can scroll to the next video fine, but if you continue to scroll to the next after that (3rd consecutive video) you get redirected to the first video you started with.

I did try to restart FF in Safemode, but no change. In other browsers (Chrome, Edge) its still working.

Session lost during Windows update, now I can't force Firefox to recover the session from my sessionstore.jsonlz4 file

After a windows update yesterday, when I started Firefox it didn't load my previous session as usual. Previously, I've been able to go to settings and restore the session, but there were no options for that and the relevant session wasn't shown in the recently closed tabs or windows, even though the history was intact. It loaded a new/blank window, and since then when I close and either re-open or try to restore a previous session, it only opens the tabs that I've opened today.

Firefox 118.0.2 (64-bit), Windows 10 PC.

Here are the steps I've taken:

  1. Turned off the "Open previous windows and tabs" in the startup options to get access to the "restore previous session" option
  2. Gone to the profile folder and copied, then removed the contents of the sessionstore-backups folder
  3. Copied the relevant backup session file (looks like it has the tabs I need when I scan it) to my desktop and renamed it "sessionstore.jsonlz4"
  4. Replaced the existing "sessionstore.jsonlz4" file in the root profile folder with the new one from my backups
  5. Reopened Firefox

It still just loaded my tabs from today, and doesn't show the session I'm looking for in recently closed tabs or recently closed windows. When I go to about::sessionstore, it says it's having trouble getting my tabs and pages back, and there's no option to reload a session.

I checked my sessionCheckpoints file in my profile root folder, and it only had these values: {"profile-after-change":true,"final-ui-startup":true,"sessionstore-windows-restored":true}

I updated it to include these values and restarted again, but the result was identical: {"profile-after-change":true,"final-ui-startup":true,"sessionstore-windows-restored":true,"quit-application-granted":true,"quit-application":true,"sessionstore-final-state-write-complete":true,"profile-change-net-teardown":true,"profile-change-teardown":true,"profile-before-change":true}

When I open the sessionstore.jsonlz4 file in Notepad++ I can read it normally, and when I just double-click to open it in Firefox it appears to parse correctly in terms of both structure and data... the tab 0/entry 0/URL shows the URL of the first tab that I had open, tab 1/entry 0/URL shows the URL of the second tab, and so on. So it looks like the data is there, but I can't seem to force Firefox to load that.

Any suggestions for what I'm missing?

Following the advice given on Firefox I switched to storing my messages online. Only AFTER having chosen this switch was I told that I would have lost ALL of my previously stored messages on my computer. Can anyone please tell me how to access those messages previously stored on my computer if that is possible, or at least tell me the address where they would have been stored on my computer. Some help would be much appreciated !
