(5/9/21) I use Yahoo mail for my newsletter. I place images as well as links and text. Everything was working fine for the last two years, but three days ago the images disappeared on the drafts if I left the draft or refreshed it. It will not even send the images. So I went to Safari and everything works fine. I rather use Firefox because Safari sucks. But this also means I can't send images on any kind of email either. I'm using a Mac laptop. Does anyone else have this problem? If it isn't fixed, I will have to use Safari or Google browsers from now on. I don't like Google either because they're Deepstate. Thank you!

Who if anyone can help me with Firefox deleting my info over and over again?

Firefox installs updates without my permission and then deletes everything - logins, cookies, bookmarks, view settings, all history.

Now this has happened 3 times in less than a month. And it seems to happen randomly. It is likely related to a new update. I get alerts for updates and this time when the alert pop up showed up I declined by clicking "not now". I had also changed my preferences to only install updates with my permission. That is ignored by Firefox. Instead this morning I walked away from my computer for a few minutes and when I returned every this was gone the "this is embarrassing" screen was there but the only restore choice was to "search Marquis".

There is some type of conflict going on and I can't figure it out. I am using a MacBook running 10.12.6 and I have used Firefox for years. The most recent change was to a different internet provider. But the problem with Firefox deleting my info started before that. Something seems to crash within Firefox and it may automatically restart and then install an new update that deletes everything. That is just my guess. I don't really understand a lot of this and don't want to spend hours learning about browsers. The last time it happened I spent a long time trying to follow the suggestions for getting my history and everything else back but none of that worked. So I've given up on retrieving anything and apparently even having a history because it's always going to be randomly delete by Firefox.

Maybe Firefox is not the right browser for me anymore? What are the requirements?

Thanks for any suggestions as to what might be causing this.

I had to do a factory reset of my computer a few months ago and reinstall Firefox. I have never found the bookmark folders that I used when I first got Firefox 88. Folders do not show up when I open the library, select bookmarks and manage bookmarks. Now I put all new ones in bookmark toolbar and they are a long list that is difficult to use. Is there a simple way to find and create folders so I can organize the bookmarks in toolbar and put them in folders?

I could not understand the information in the answers to similar questions. I need simple directions that are not too technical for someone without sophisticated computer skills. Thanks in advance.

In my question above, I have taken out 3 sentences but it still says I have too many characters. At first it said I had 11 more than the 255 limit; after deleting all that, it says I have 40 more. It won't make sense if I take out any more.

In MacOS Big Sur 11.1 on my MacBook, I have set MacOS to automatically switch between Light Mode and Dark Mode. But I notice that Firefox does not handle this well. When I have used my MacBook Dark Mode and switch back to Light Mode, Firefox still hangs in Dark Mode. The only way to solve this is to choose Light Mode in System Preferences instead of automatic.

I have used Firefox to sign into American Airlines website for years. Now when I try and sign in it says the site is unavailable but I am able to sign in on other devices and other servers. I called American Airlines and there is no problem on their end. Why is this happening all of a sudden and only for this one website. Is there anyway I could get around there so I can keep using Firefox to get on American

Hi, Firefox is not opening 192.168.8.1 since 2 days ago. I have changed service providers, but now I cannot access my MIFI router's admin page. The little spinning wheel goes on forever, til I get an error message "The server at 192.168.8.1 is taking too long to respond and has timed out". No matter how many times I try, or in safe mode, I cannot connect. As I am changing service providers, I need to access the router to administrate the new simcard.

I hope someone can help? Thank you!

Want to make UI larger; modifying layout.css.devPixelsPerPx makes UI scaling inconsistent across screens

Hey, I want to make the UI slightly larger; I have found that modifying layout.css.devPixelsPerPx in about:config works the way I need it to. However, when using multiple screens with different resolutions, the scaling no longer appears consistent between those screens. That would make sense (since it's a per-pixel configuration), but I couldn't any configuration option that only acts as a modifier for the standard scaling mechanism. I'm using macOS (10.15.7), Firefox 88.0. Attaching a screenshot taken from both screens together (not sure how macOS handles the difference in resolution when handling screenshots, there's definitely some magic going on with macOS screenshots in general; either way, it shows the problem really well).
