What the living H.. happened to my bookmarks????? Version 92.0 installed and NOW ALL MY BOOKMARKS .. .YEAR SO PROFESSIONAL BOOKMARKS are GONE. I tried to restore from an older version and got the message that they were corrupted, unusable. GONE. Someone needs to fix this like yesterday.

A very, very, very unhappy user.

Greetings. I have scoured the web and read all the community posts on this robot head, under remote control, and orange stripes in the address bar problem that so many people seem to be having. There are a few answers, but almost all of them use very technical terms that are way above my head and not defined. None of them provide a sequence of steps to fix the problem that a browser novice might be able to follow. Surely there must be a way to fix this or to explain to frustrated users why it is there and not removable. None of my other Firefox browsers have this on other machines.

Is there a series of steps to solve the problem? That would be so helpful especially without undefined terms. Thanks so much. This type of answer will help so many frustrated users (me included of course) :)

Im on a mac running 10.13.6 and my personalized fonts (papyrus) aren't completely working since last update. I didnt get a response to my search so thought I'd say something. I tried changing to a different font but it didn't take either after I restarted firefox. I don't have the allow sites to use their fonts checked, so I'm clueless... thanks

Basically whenever I click the microphone option in Google Translate it says "Voice Input isn't supported by my Browser" I have no idea why this is happening. I have tried every troubleshooting technique along with refreshed my Entire browser while I was about to uninstall and reinstall it.

I have also changed it from the Page Info page by clicking Ctrl + i and changing it from Permissions, didn't work.

Please help, Btw this is happening only in Google Translate, Google Search. And not in Google Meet or Youtube for some reason.

Hello,

Windows 10 Desktop Computer Updated, Firefox 92.0

The folder I need yo go to in Documents, it goes to Downloads Instead Automatically!

When I try to get an attachment, for an email I'm sending out, it goes to the wrong folder. It just sits there doing nothing, with the hour glass on. I wait and wait, so I can change the location. Most times it doesn't stop. A very few times, when that stops, I located which folder I need, and it just goes into the hour glass mode again!

If I click on the screen, an error message comes up with something like, program not responding, do you want to close the program? or wait until it stops? With thus, I think it's dealing with the Folder that isn't responding! BUT no, when I click to close the program, LO And Behold, Firefox Closes!

I have a lot of attachments, I need to deal with. It doesn't ask me, which folder I want to get the attachment from?

Any Help Here?

Thank You!! Take Care!! Everyone Stay Healthy and Safe (Pets Also)!!!

Hi, To start with I love your browser been using and recommending it for many years. I am a service provider and have a customer that started getting this in her Firefox browser. Started a few weeks ago. Hard to describe the attachment will show more. There is a image box link. No image shows in any of them but clicked on it does go to the url. The url address is right after it. They are partially imposed over part of the description of the web site. Now my Firefox browser on my machine does not look like this. Is this a setting I need to disable to return it to normal and remove this little image box at the beginning? Or is there a problem with the browser? Thank you for your time and help. SEBassman

I've had to waste precious time getting to this screen to enter message. Screen real estate is a premium. Why blow it up with white space. Come on! Please return to previous screen formats.

It's been quite awhile since you've made unnecessary display format changes. Please return it to the way it was.

I was changing my language setting in Firefox (only) from English (US) to English (UK)(the only other option was English-Canada) as I am in Australia and we use the United Kingdom spelling anyway. Within Firefox itself (not emails or off site pages) it STILL insists that COLOUR is spelt wrong & it allows me to spell NITE (not day) incorrectly. i have an Oxford dictionary in front of me & can reference a WEBSTERS all day long. There are many, many countries that have English as their primary language, Ghana is one & some South Pacific Islands (now the French have buggered off) The Seychelles off Africa have English as their official language & you can bet 'they' would have odd spellings. So no English (Australian) that's why the word Galah doesn't even get a look in. A Galah, by the way, is a VERY common Australian bird & in anyone's language. I'm guessing there is NO American word for Cockatoo too. I will have to look that up in my Funk & Wagnalls. Funk & Wagnalls was an American publisher known for its reference works, including A Standard Dictionary of the English Language, and the Funk & Wagnalls Standard (reference Wikipedia). Well, well, not only Webster trying ton undermine (Bastardize) (its actually S not a Z) standard English but Fucken Wagnall was in on it too!

Anneeeway just a heads up. using Firefox Browser (64-bit) on a Windows 7 Ultimate (Service Pack 1) I guess support for Win7 will be gone soon anyway Microsoft will see to that.

Looking for a suitable LINUX replacement. Thanks, bye.

Recently I’ve been receiving a 522 timeout error in Firefox attempting to reach URL www.cocoontech.com. The 522 is returned from Cloudflare’s reverse proxy servers (see uploaded image). However, I can successfully reach that URL using Chrome and MS Edge browsers. Only Firefox receives the 522 error. I can access numerous other websites with Firefox, so it seems to be isolated to just www.cocoontech.com. I’ve looked at numerous settings in Firefox, but have not seen anything that seems relevant to this issue.

Any ideas where to look to resolve this issue?

Using latest updated Windows 10 and latest updated Firefox 92.0, when I open up Google Maps and click on "Show your Location" button it shunts me off to the middle of Chicago, rather than downtown Menlo Park, CA.

I double checked whether my WIndows Settings were set to allow location, and it was still set to "On." I also tried using Chrome and there, everything worked as expected. I also tried Microsoft Edge, and there it was broken as well.

So, the problem could be with Windows or Firefox apparently...Not sure how to fix or at least work around the problem.

I just reinstalled Firefox. There was a "search with amazon.ca" at the bottom of the options when I clicked on the search toolbar. (This was not a suggested search engine on the bottom row, with the other search engines -- it was popping up with the list of websites I visit.)

I deleted Amazon.ca from the list of suggested search engines and now instead of "search with Amazon.ca" it simply shows "Amazon.ca Low prices fast shipping" in its place and I can't seem to get rid of this. And I want this gone for a number of reasons, the least of which is that it takes me to Amazon.com where I don't even have an account.

Ghostery has started a totally annoying adblocking stats popup in the lower right corner of the screen. A previous thread here stated, Contact the developers. There is no way to do that that I could find. For now I have deleted Ghostery and and am happy to leave it deleted. But I would also be OK with having it back because I have an account.

Any ideas on this ?
