When the DuckDuckGo Browser extension is added, it should show up in the top right of the browser with a website rating. When you click on this rating it will give you extra details, settings, and information. This is supposed to show up but it isn't for some reason and I don't know why. Any idea for what could cause this? I've tried rebooting the browser, uninstalling the add-on, then re-installing the add-on.

My screen shot tool disappeared this week, as did my "share" option (email, Twitter, FB, etc.).

What happened? How can I put them back on my toolbar?

Also, looking for a hopeful solution without having to add a third Firefox bar. It makes my screen (small laptop) too small.

TIA, Susan

My motherboard died and I need to transfer all of my Firefox data to new system. Old hard drive is accessible. Especially need passwords I cannot remember! I copied logins and got those, and copied old profile data to new system,but passwords and logins do not show up. Being old and not very bright (obviously) I didn't record some passwords and don't remember them!

To help test some bugs in Firefox I installed Nightly a while ago alongside the regular Firefox.

Today when starting Nightly, it used the profile I use in the normal release Firefox, for work mostly. I exited almost immediately, but when I try to run the profile with regular Firefox, I get a warning that I'm using an older version of Firefox. See attached screenshot.

Is there a way to recover the profile?

Current FF version I have is 90.0.2 on Windows 64 bit.

Hello there,

since the FF90.xx I can´t paste anymore in the World of Tank EU forum. I did refresh firefox and tried it without addons and in private mode and it does not work. The only chance that I can paste is in the mobile version from the used IP.Board. I can´t even see the paste/einfügen option in the posting section.

I have some other members inside the community that reported the same issue to me.

It would be nice to get some help/ideas.

With best regards.

I was switching my browser from Brave, a chrome based browser, back to Firefox because Brave doesn't can't run some of the stuff my uni learning management system (LMS). I tried importing my browser bookmarks and passwords to Firefox but the importing feature on Firefox doesn't show Brave as one of the browsers it can take the data from. I want to know if there's anyway I can fix this or if there's no hope for importing data from chromium browsers to Firefox.

I'd like to have, in my one firefox account, a 'private' profile with my private life bookmarks and a 'work' profile with my work life bookmarks. However, this doesn't seem to work. I open firefox with work profile and see my work bookmarks, then I close and reopen with private profile and see my private bookmarks, then I close and reopen again with work profile and now I still see my private bookmarks instead of my work bookmarks. Firefox just unsolicitedly takes the private bookmarks over to the work profile. This can't be how it's supposed to be, right? Because what would be the point of having different profiles? I hope you can help me with this.

When I try and use the search bar in google to search anything, what ever I type appears in the address bar instead. Sometimes it trys to create a URL for what I am typing and fails.

I want to stop Firefox from using the address bar as the means of searching. I have read solutions online about changing things in about:config, however, this is not working fully.

It will only work it only works if I open up a new window. If I try and open up a tab it returns to trying to create a URL from my search requirements.

I have also tried the preference screen and nothing in there resolves the problem either.

I was able to change the font in Ctrl J by changing my system font (windows 10, Firefox font used to automatically follow it). However after the latest Firefox update, that no longer works for Firefox (my system font is still OK). Please help me change the Libabry font again! The default font (probably SegoeUI) is very hard to read on my computer, it's blurry and comes in light gray.

Note: I'm not talking about the website font (it's fine and can be changed in Firefox settings). The library font size is fine too, only the font itself is too hard to read.

Note2: I tried changing my system font to other random fonts (using the registry), restarting my computer in between etc. That still works, but Firefox won't follow.
