Hi: Can anyone help me to recover BOOKMARKS which I've found missing after today's starting my Firefox Browser/Thunderbird and trying to use one of the BOOKMARKS: this is for the first time I've lost them just by opening the Program after I've about 3 weeks ago Upgraded my Windows 7 to Version 10 - under Windows 7 they were working properly without any 'accidental loss'. Question: - is it possible to use the Bookmarks-Back Up file to re-install them - IF NOT, what is the other way to reliably re-install them ...? My PC-system is: Windows 10 Home, Ver 10.0.19042 (20H2), CPU; Intel Pentium D 935 3.20Ghz (dual core), x64-based processor, 32-bit. I'd greatly appreciate any SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS how to accomplish this. Tony H.

Windows 10 Firefox 88/89 64-bit PC It seems there was a compact mode before version 89? I don't know if that's what I want.

I would like to have a simple selection in FF Preferences to turn OFF the Proton stuff. I am not an IT geek and I'm not comfortable doing things like changing CSS code - if I knew how to do that stuff, I'd be using Linux not Windows. Since I'm stuck with Windows, I rely on a good browser like FF v.88 to take care of the technical stuff.

Version 89 seems to be OK with Proton shut off, but I hear this is a temporary fix. I also don't know if shutting off Proton fixed the spacing nightmare in Bookmarks - I lost mine reloading v.88 and haven't had a chance to look for them. (v.89 is on the PC upstairs - this one is still on v.88.)

For some context on the anger at FF's change, those of us who use Facebook on a regular basis were forced into a horrendous update in late 2021 which barely works, and Facebook continuously changes code, fixing what isn't broken. To find that the browser we've relied on for years did the same with no warning is very upsetting.

I'd like to get a message directly to Mozilla but "Submit Feedback" has been shut down for over a week.

When I download a file with multiple spaces in the name, like 'test space.txt' (there are 2 spaces between test and space), FF condenses the extra space into one, like 'test space.txt' (there is only 1 space between test and space). This happens on multiple websites and does not occur in other browsers.

I just noticed Firefox text (e.g., menu bar, in this help) on my Dell UltraSharp monitor running from Windows 10 computer is not sharp anymore. When I compare with Chrome and Edge, their text is very sharp, but text on Firefox is bad enough I really have difficulty using Firefox.

My Firefox is 89.0.1 (64 bit) but I believe I saw problem just before 89.0.1 installed.

Windows 10 has 21H1 for x64 installed today 6/17/2021 and 21H1 and 20H2 installed on 6/12/2021.

Firefox on a Windows 10 (Build 19042.1052) that

It starts and seems to run without hanging or crashing. I can enter an url, but it doesn't do anything. The Viewport just stays white. Also nothing happens if clicking on a bookmark. Or the settings. I was able to open the about:support page via the menu, but not by entering it into the adress bar.

Here are the things that I already tried to no avail: - updated to the latest version - Incognito mode - Troubleshoot mode - graphics card driver is up to date - reinstallation - Cleaning Firefox - delete firefox profile - clearing the start cache - downgrade to version 88.0.1

It is weird, that the about:support page works when opened from the menu but not when entered into the adress bar, right? This means that content can be displayed, but you cannot navigate to it via the address list. But then why don't bookmarks work either?

By the way: It is not a network Issue. Chrome and Edge work, and also the problem persists across multiple different networks.

Firefox does not connect to "google.de" or "amazon.de" do to "HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS)". First I cleaned the "Firefox" (about:config). Then I deinstalled and reinstalled it. No change in behavior. I started with an empty "SiteSecurityServiceState.txt" Anyway still no connection possible to "google.de" or "amazon.de". I would be glad if anyone could help me.

BS is WIN10 Version 20H2 (Version 21H1 could not be loaded yet --> mistake while installing. I am still waiting for a solution to this problem via MS)

Sorry for my humble English.

When entering credit/debit card details something in the settings or addons is stopping the process and the purchase fails. I am still able to make payments with a different browser so it is a Firefox issue.

I am using a PC with Windows 10 and Defender security. Everything seemed to be ok until the latest version of Firefox but I suspect there might be a conflict between the browser security settings and the addons.

I have used Forget Me Not, Privacy Badger and Adblocker for a few months without any issues but I'm not sure now if it's not overkill.

Would be grateful for help regarding any known conflicts - I suspect I don't need Privacy Badger but I'm not sure about the Firefox tracking settings as well.

After install the new update to Firefox, my browser windows randomly close 3-4 times a day.

The first time this happened was minutes after the initial update. The windows don't freeze first - they just all close at once without warning. Also, I can't find any crash reports. Any help you can provide with this problem would be appreciated.

Thanks
