My unsorted bookmarks used to appear in the library window in a folder called Unsorted Bookmarks but now there is no folder by that name. They only appear in the toolbar, not the library. There is nothing in the "Other Bookmarks" folder. I'd like to be able to organize them in mass in the library window. Working in 48.02 and old Mac OS10.6.8. Not really sure whether this happened in an upgrade. Thanks!

I just updated my Mac to SnowLeopard. Firefox, which I have had downloaded and used for a year or so seemed "normal" until this. Cannot read a whole line of type unless I "zoom out" 3 times because the words run off the right edge of the screen. Then, when go to another page, have to repeat the zoomx3. The line of red type across bottom of page appeared at same time. Is old typewriter-style typeface, bright red in a light gray field of its own. Says <menuitem id="abp-status-shownotifications" label="&shownotifications.label;" type="checkbox" command=abp-commaFALLSOFF EDGE OF PAGE. There is a line 2, which says ----------^ The field with this text takes space from a page that it shouldn't, of course. About 3/4". WHEN I PUT THE SNOW LEOPARD TO "INSTALL", it did so, but nowhere does it say 'EJECT THE DISC WHEN INSTALL COMPLETED", so I did not Should I? And, if so, how? (Have never played a disc on my Mac). Keep wondering if this is the prob. </p>

After I selected Firefox -Clear History, Better Privacy appeared to be functioning but I noticed in Add-Ons Manager “Better Privacy” will be disabled after you restart Firefox”. Firefox searches immediately began appearing in Google-My Activity even though they had been effectively blocked for the past year. When I restarted, Add-Ons Manager verified that Better Privacy had been disabled upon restart and that it was incompatible with Firefox 44.0.2. 1. Why would clearing history apparently trigger an add-on to become incompatible when the Firefox version has not changed? 2. What other effective LSO blocking programs are available for Firefox 44.0.2 and higher since Better Privacy completely stopped working?

3. Has Firefox permanently stopped making Better Privacy available for newer versions? If so, why?

For example, when I put my Gmail account into my bookmarks and see it on my tool bar, it shows only an "M" icon. I want it to read "Gmail" after the icon. Or, my health care provider says "My Health Manager". I would prefer it to read "Kaiser", which is the name of the HMO.

If you can, kindly list each little step in detail. I am not automatically tech savvy or intuitive. Thank you!

prior versions of firefox had the option to open a new window by right clicking on the icon in the dock. Now it is missing. When I have Firefox open and minimize then switch to another app and want to open FF in another new window, I have to re-activate the minimized window and then select from the "File" drop down menu to be able to select a new window. Is there a fix for this?

When a bookmark is added to the Bookmarks Toolbar, Mozilla puts it at the bottom of the Toolbar list. The user wants a new bookmark added to the top almost always, NEVER to the bottom. Not only is the default wrong, but users are not given a preference setting for this that I can find on the Firefox site. Did I overlook it, or is this something we can hope to see in a future update?

I've been using Blocksite as an add-on.

Firefox has now disabled it for being unsigned.

Blocksite is still available for download on the firefox site:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/blocksite/?src=search

Why can't I use this / why is it still able to be downloaded if it has become a problem?

Basically, whats going on here? Even if I wanted to use a different website blocker, because blocksite is disabled, I no longer have access to the comprehensive list of websites that I've added to it.

Thanks!

I have an aging Intel iMac, running OS X 10.6 and Firefox 48.0.

The "datareporting" - "Archived" folder— Library / Application Support / Firefox / Profiles— contains numerous monthly folders, each crammed full of files. The one for the current month alone has 107 so far.

Are these really essential, and if not, can they be safely deleted?

Also, can the feature or function creating them be disabled via about:config?

Thanks!
