Keeping personal and work matters separate

(Using Windows 10) I'm looking for a way to create separate "workspaces in Firefox for work-related stuff and personal stuff. Ideally, I want to have two Firefox windows open simultaneously. One window would be logged into my work email account (on Gmail), have access to work-related bookmarks, show custom toolbars, etc -- even a different color theme, so when I hover over the Firefox icon in taskbar, I can easily identify which workspace is which. Ditto for a personal workspace: different email accounts (one on Gmail, one on a private domain), bookmarks, toolbars, theme. I'd be able -- just by switching to a different Firefox window -- to switch between these two "workspaces", without needing to log out of one and log into another. Maybe I could even synch each workspace with the matching "user" on my Android phone, which is set up with two users, each tied with a diff email account. I could accomplish most of this by using different browsers for each workspace, but I've been using Firefox since forever, am most comfortable with it, and would love to use it for both. Is this a pipe dream?

I would like to import the stored bookmarks from my old Opera browser to my Firefox browser. When I go to 'Show all Bookmarks' under the Bookmarks tab, then select for 'Import and Backup', and finally select the 'Import Data from another Browser' my other older browsers are listed but Opera is not. How do I locate Opera then import those bookmarks? Thank you.

since a recent windows update, firefox doesnt acknowledge my normal camera. a few weeks before the update i used a temporary extra camera for a meeting on teams. i normally have meetings with zoom, teams, and a web-based teaching tool. after the update all 3 had switched to the temporary camera, which is not suitable for face-to-face. however zooms and teams offered both cameras and i was able to correct it. however firefox only shows the one (wrong) camera when i access the teaching tool. It does seem to be a browser problem, because the Edge browser does offer both camera. however I do not want to use the Edge or chrome for various privacy related reasons.

Has anyone experienced this issue?

I have set Firefox for macOS to use the default theme in which uses the system colours.

The system goes into dark mode without issue in Firefox, however, Firefox fails to go back to light mode when the system goes back. Currently it is the only application that I have this trouble with and I can not workout what the issue is.

Tried reinstalling Firefox.

I haven't heard anyone else having this issue so now wondering if there is something uniquely wrong with my system or set-up?

I would be grateful for any ideas

Some sites work better for me with IE (e.g., Remote Desktop), others with Firefox (e.g., Gmail). I'd like a desktop icon that opens Remote Desktop with IE and one that opens Gmail with Firefox, regardless of my default browser setting.

Is there as way to specify the browser on an internet shortcut? Or, alternatively, is there a way to create an application shortcut for a browser that passes the URL as a parameter?

How do I change Firefox Homepage background color? I need it to be other than white. I need the dropdown menus to be other than white also.

I have tried Firefox Color, Dark Themes, Options, etc.

I don't understand how to use Stylus or something like that.

The white hurts my eyes so severely that I refrain from using them.

I am using Windows 10 on a laptop.

Please change back the URL bar ever since it was added a month ago or whenever it has been SO annoying. I'm about to change browsers because I cannot stand it anymore. It is visually unattractive and obnoxious looking.

Also, highlighted text in it is a blue font color with no highlight. Why is this different from every other Windows program?? It is not easy to tell that text is highlighted. It should be HIGHLIGHTED blue with a white font color.

It has become impossible to use Firefox. It does not load/display captchas. All sites I visit which require a captcha verification to log in, is now inaccessible. That include google and discus. Google maps are also not responding when typing an address.

I have searched for solutions but all I tried did not solve the problem.

I now have to use two browsers, which is a senseless exercise. Please help with this problem.

I use windows 10 pro firefox v 77.1

Thanks for any help
