I recently updated my system and it removed the toolbar at the top of the page. Please tell me how I can return my bookmarks up top. I like that better than having to open up a side bar and search for them.

I read some old information on doing it but it didn't help. So please give me some simple steps in order to do to return my toolbar back to the top of the page. PS. Please when you give us an update is there anyway to keep the system from changing these things. It really irks me.

I really love firefox, but since the recent update that came with a cool multi-colour theme, websockets have been having issues on my browser. I'm a developer, and currently building a site that's very much based on this websockets protocol. The issue is, when transmitting a huge chunk of data (e.g large json of google auth details), firefox tends to send a corrupted payload which the server cannot decode. This issue doesn't appear in Chrome for some reason.

I want to open all .pptx, docs and .xlsx files to open on office viewer page online before downloading. (https://view.officeapps.live.com/op/view.aspx?src=)

If we insert the link in the field after src, it opens the doc on the browser itself.

When I open Firefox, I'm getting ** 12 ** instances of Firefox opening up and spamming the hell out of my hard drive (even slowing down other processes), even without opening a page (I have mine set to not open any pages on loading Firefox). This is annoying and intolerable. I have looked around to find a workaround, but the only post was from last year, and gives instructions to turn off recommended settings, then says to set Firefox instances to 1, where there is no way to do that in that section on the version I'm running. So, how do I fix this? I want the hard drive spamming stopped.

Former Firefox shortcuts have been changed to actual files with a .url extention on the desktop.

For example, a shortcut named Sinkinson Ancestry became Sinkinson Ancestry.com.url My Chrome shortcuts are unaffected (see attached images)

I use Mint 19.3 and is attached to a hardware product Winston Privacy which due to lack of sales the piece of Hardware is no longer available but the Hardware I have has a Lifetime License in the firmware. My point is the tracking that Mozilla does seems to be very high with Mozilla even though I have turned off the tracking with Firefox. As you can see with the attached file 'ScreenShot1' Pie graph Domain 'incoming.telemetry.mozilla.org' is the majority of the pie which has a count of 61 blocks. File 'ScreenShot2' shows the actual number count for the Domain.

Okay, so...hopefully somebody here can help me from going, "Mhhmmm! Grrrrrrr!" every time I wanna search something.

    So here's what's up...

I go to my home page, bing.com. I type in a search, and because it pertains to the issue at hand, lets suppose the search was adult oriented, or something that would make you want to change the search safety settings from its default of 'Moderate' to 'Off', as you want it to be. Cool. Great. Sweet, its off, now I can continue.....Buuuuut, no! Nope. See,...{sigh}.....okay, so lets back up a few steps and right now we're at the moment when we had switched 'Moderate' to 'Off'. Okay! So,....now lets say that you want to filter down your search results. So, we navigate over to the right-hand side of the page, we click 'Filter', we select our filter, the pag loads, annnnnd AHHHHHH DAMMIT TO HELL!! It's back set to 'Moderate'. And it will continue to do this when for whatever reason the page needs to reload. Its driving me.......{sigh & steps back}....Ooohh, okay, well.....suffice to say, the issue needs resolving. Like,....NOW! Please.  :-D It almost slipped my mind, but, for the sake of knowing what kind of suggestions you may give,.... Let me just throw out there that I am no 'computer noob'. The last time I went to buy a new desktop computer, I wasn't a member of Camp Cow! What I'm tryin' to say is, I'm no programmer, but I'm quite 'puter knowledgeable. I remember as a kid, getting bored and walking into the den where my dad (former IBM guy) was sitting there, mumbling outloud to himself, "...Wha...? Whaddaya mean, 'Bad command or file name? ...Doesn't make any sense...". I sat down to watch him try & fix the computer, I told 'em I was bored, he said, "Bored, huh? Yeah,....that'll happen sometimes." Gets up from his chair, plants his hand on the backrest, stands up and does this sorta,...two and a half step, 'walk' across the room to the closet, which is like, two feet from me.... Still with his one hand on the chair's back rest, with the other, he reaches up into the closet to the little book shelf in there, grabs a book I've seen him use a number of times before, takes it down, half pulls * half 'back steps' back into his chair, playfully flings his book holding hand toward me. It lands in my lap with a sh-mack! of my pants, and my dad being completely serious, he's not joking in the least says to me, "Here. Read this. It's good to know." The infamous book? The user's manual for MS-DOS 5. ...Hmm,...it might of been 6.2. My dad was teaching me DOS commands when I was 8. Heh!.... I'm sorry, that went a bit longer than I had imagined. Well, I guess I'll chalk it up to, 'Taking the opportunity to tell a 'I remember when' story about my dad. He died last year. November 8th. He was 86. Best dad you could ever know.

 Hey thank you in advance, if you're able to help.  Thanks & take care!

Firefox keeps resetting Bing SafeSearch back to Moderate. This change occurs with every single search and the problem has only begun since in the last week to 10 days (it is now 1/21/2022.) I have cleared all histories and cookies and even gone as far as to completely reset my computer. It happens on all my PC computers, Win 10 and Win 11. It happens with all combinations of my Firefox profiles and all of my MS accounts. It happens when I'm not signed into any Firefox profile or Bing account. It happens in normal mode as well as private mode. It happens only with Firefox. It does not happen with Edge or Chrome. This is very clearly a conflict between Firefox and Bing SafeSearch.
