Everytime I load Firefox the bookmarks sidebar is not shown.

Navigating thus View => Sidebar => Bookmarks I can bring it up. It will stay visible for the whole of my browser session. However, after I've closed this session and started another. the bookmark sidebar is missing again.

How can I make the bookmarks sidr be available all the time?

Trying to recover from a hard drive crash. Had to buy a new desktop with Windows 11 Pro (looking to be a bad move). I downloaded/updated to Firefox 126.0 (maybe also looking to be a bad move).

Have my last "working" userChrome file (it took me weeks to perfect this to my needs).

I am looking for: C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile>\

but there is no "AppData" folder. And there is no existing userChrome.css file, anywhere!

Is the functionality I am looking for a thing of the past?

Is Firefox not completely supported by Windows 11?

If so, what is the last version of Firefox that will still support userChrome.css?

It's not clear to me from the general help instructions how to get my passwords and bookmarks from my old computer to my new one. All the files from my old computer were transferred into one big folder and placed on the Desktop of my new computer. I don't know how to find the right file in the backup and where I need to copy it to on my new computer. I know a while ago I had to recover my passwords, but I forget the steps I went through and it was all on the same computer so slightly different situation although as I recall it was not all that difficult. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If I open multiple Linkedin pages quickly (like when I open a bunch of job postings), most of the time 50-75% of the pages don't load at all or just stuck loading for ever.

I've completely uninstalled Firefox and deleted everything Mozilla related from my Windows 11 PC (including from AppData) but it doesn't help.

The issue persists on all my PC's and doesn't change if I try another DNS provider. I've tried changing a lot of the security settings but none seem to have an effect.

Edge and Brave work completely fine but I'd prefer to keep using Firefox. Any suggestions?

So only on my FIre Fox, a window would pop-up (a window that looked like it was via the operating system) that was asking me for my NordVPN Username and Password. When I would push the "cancel" button, it would just keep popping up over and over, not letting me do anything else. So I would have to switch to a different browser, whereby that would not happen. Is this something that happens with FireFox?

I uninstalled Firefox and only use another browser now, but it is not happening anymore.

I was the victim of a ransomware attack, I knew who did it, but the police did nothing. I suspect those same persons are still trying to keep tabs on me to see if I am still trying to take some kind of action against them. I don't want to sound paranoid, but these people, who are known to me, destroyed my legal practice, so it is worthy to be paranoid.

Anyone know anything about these types of things?

Suddenly my Firefox stopped opening links on a page and when I open a new tab I can only get a blank page or the Firefox default page. Before this happened (and I didn't make any changes, just turned on my computer one day and things changed) I could open a new tab and it opened with my chosen URL, which happens to be msn.com, and say after opening I did a search for something and then clicked a link, it would open the link. Now I click a link and it shows a new tab up top, but never opens anything, just the circle going and going and going. Also when I open a new tab I can only get a blank page or Firefox default page, where I used to get my msn page. When the problem originally started I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled in hopes it would fix this, but it didn't. I have spent hours trying to Google an answer. As soon as I use Edge, everything works fine, I can click links all day long. I have used Firefox forever and don't want to give it up, but if I can't solve the problem, I can't use it because it's SO frustrating and time consuming not to be able to open a link. The blank page or Firefox default I guess I could get used to, even though it's super annoying for it not to work, when it did for years. Thank you for anyone who might be able to help.

I have many problems with Firefox for Windows 11. Unfortunately, it occupies a very high amount of cpu above 88% and memory above 700 MB with two or three open screens and has a very high battery consumption, consuming more than 41% of 100% battery in less than an hour. Also, I used it a lot in Windows 10 and it was not like this at all, and its automatic update was perfect in Windows 10, but it does not work in Windows 11. Thank you for your attention and correcting software updates in the very near future

Over the weekend I finally updated my Microft Account to the Cloud. During that process my Firefox Brower, which I have used for YEARS became unusable. When finished got the message in the screenshot attached. Tried reinstalling. Did not work. Tried unistalling today then reinstalling same message.

Erg. I am so upset with Microsoft for hijacking a completely useful tool which is my default browser, and has been forever.

Help!
