When I go to Bookmark a Page (by clicking on the icon in the Address Bar), the folder that automatically appears is OTHER BOOKMARKS. Is there a way to change this default bookmark to another Bookmark / Folder? Specifically, I have created a new Bookmark folder, let's say it is called RECIPES and I want to automatically / default all future bookmarks to my Recipes folder. I hope that is clear. Thank you.

I've posted the following in the MS Office Forum:

In the Word desktop app I used "-->", which Word autoconverts to a nice arrow. When viewing the document in the browser version of Word it gets mangled and shows up as a "à" symbol. Note: This happens on the same computer! My browser is Firefox (84.0.2). When using Edge or Chrome the arrows are displayed properly.

And got the following answer:

This appears to be a bug in Firefox. The two characters have the same Unicode value, 00E0, but the arrow is in the Wingdings font while the à is displayed in most non-symbol fonts. Although the font box on the ribbon in Word Online says the font of the character is Wingdings, Firefox fails to show it in that font.

Given that both Edge and Chrome seem to be able to display the document correctly, it seems to me that this is a Firefox bug?

I want a link to open in a new tab after I left-click. So I have the "Open links in tabs instead of new windows" setting checked. But it doesn't work, when I click a link it opens in that tab. So I unchecked the box, and still, the link opens in that tab. It doesn't open in a new tab or window.

Isn't there a way to have a link open in a new tab? Or the only way to do it would be left click and go to the "open link in new tab" part of the pop up window?

For some reason today all of the sudden I can no longer see YouTube videos whether they are on the YouTube site, or embedded on another site. I checked another browser, and there is not issue there (Microsoft Edge). I then tried to sign up for YouTube, but the process broke down because the confirmation code was never sent to my e-mail. I also turned the AdBlock off, but that didn't help either. I checked with my ISP and there are no issues on their end. Everything else I use is not affected by this issue. So what gives?

I am disabled and cannot type, and colleges 100% online this year because of CovId 19. When I tried to download the add-on for Dragon naturally speaking the program I use to write Foxfire says that it appears to be corrupted and will not allow me to download it. I know it's not corrupted because I have downloaded it from the same site for chrome. Can anybody tell me how to get around this problem? My sincerest thanks Kevin Arthur Cleveland

When I am trying to type in a web address the Firefox browser tries to "guess" what website I want to visit by auto-filling. This is sometimes useful, but most of the time it guesses wrong or takes me to a webpage when I wanted to search. Currently I am trying to sign into one of my Wordpress and Firefox will NOT let me type /wp-login.php at the end of the URL it keeps redirecting me to another page on my website no matter what I do. Is there any way to just disable this "feature" because I swear I'm about to switch to Opera as this is driving me bonkers. (I will never switch to Chrome, don't worry.)

Hello there, I feel a little embarrassed to ask this, because I feel like this should be trivial to do. I've looked through the settings quite thoroughly. By default firefox opens up all the tabs from the previous session, and lazy loads them. I would like it so that it no longer does this. That it just always opens a single new tab. Irrespective of whether firefox closed, or I shut down my computer while it was still open. Is there a way to do this? General > Start-up > Restore previous session, is already unchecked. Thank you very much, Sashin

When closing the last tab, instead of closing, Firefox restores a tab from a previous session. This session history can also get queued, so if I have closed Firefox with a tab open on more than one occasion, it will restore that many times. Once closing this restored tab, it does appear to remove it from the old session 'queue'.

When I close the last tab, it should _never_ restore an old tab. I'm fine with an about:blank or something similar (closing the browser is preferred), but of all the actions to restore a session, closing the last tab is wildly unexpected.

When I try to create a New Bookmark I find that the folder has already been allocated. It is usually the last used folder number. Also, I am unable to cancel edit, or remove or perform any other changes. Going to Firefox safe mode or other recommendations makes no difference.

The problem happened for the first time last week and it was, strangely, only by doing a complete System Restore that I was able to get things back to normal. That seems like a severe remedy every time it happens. I would really appreciate help with this.
