Greetings,

Today, I went to access my Bookmarks, & found them "Empty", other wise "Missing"!

I found the "How to recover missing Bookmarks" topics, & that did bring back,what I consider to be My "Permanent Books", bu the section called "Other Bookmarks" will not come back, no matter how many times I go through the "Restore Bookmarks".

I Absolutely need that section to be restored, for I had many files in that section that I updated daily, that I planned to move to the "Bookmarks Section".

How can I get get this section restored?

Adblock Plus - is it safe? Why Mozilla doesn't recommended it? I used it in the past some years ago but now I am scary about safety

Dear Community,

I would like to download this extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/pl/firefox/addon/adblock-plus/ I would like to know how it works. If I will install this extension my firefox will be check hashsum for the files of this extension automatically? Or maybe public key of the organization/company who created Adblock Plus extension? How it is work? Can you tell me? I hope that people from Mozilla now read this and can answer for my question. This is very important for me.

Next question is to Adblock Plus extension. I can read this information: "This add-on is not actively monitored for security by Mozilla. Make sure you trust it before installing" so my question is why Mozilla don't recommended this extension? This extension now use 6,678,297 people so this is huge count. It is possible that this extension is not safe and these people now use malicious software? Why on dedicated website for this extension I can't see company name? Why this company is not verified by Mozilla? So my sugestion for people from Mozilla is to change this and check this extension or maybe add some information on website for this extension.

So I should install this extension? My friend use this on Google Chrome and he recommended me this software but I don't know if this is exatcly the same version. Maybe Chrome has verified Adblock Plus software and this is safe but Mozilla didn't verified this and this can be dangerous software because this can be not exactly the same version?

Next question is to adblocker. Why Mozilla can't make their own software to block all annoying ads and due to fight with malware? Example Opera browser have own buil-in adblocker. Why firefox can't do this? Maybe people from Mozilla should do this? This can be helpful because if this can be happen I will be not install any 3rd party software for firefox anymore and I will be safe. Maybe I can send somehow this suggestion to people from Firefox?

I hope that you can help me.

Yours faithfully, Peter

Hello. I had discovered that Firefox itself creates a so called "fork bomb" by creating a big amount of sub-processes under the main one (with I can prove thru the attached screenshoots).

Could anyone have a idea how to limit Firefox from opening so many sub-processess, with (wanting or not) are mostly causing that my system runs out of memory and stop beeing responsible to any of my inputs, with forces me to restart the system (similar thing is done by an DOS attack)

I have a staging site for my website which is protected (not visible to the public) and requires authentication with the username and password to be accessed.

Firefox is blocking access with the authorisation window coming up empty again and again and again when I enter the credentials.

So - I have to use a different browser just to access this one site.

I have cleared the cookies and cache, removed the site from the browsing history - Firefox is still blocking the access.

how can I unblock it?

I use Windows 64 bits on my PC.

Hi. I'm experiencing issue when FF pops up new window (I need it this way), it pops up right behind taskbar, which I have on top of the screen (used to it since Amiga), so that I can't reach top of the popup to slide it or minimize etc. and have to stretch it a bit to get it bellow the taskbar. Annoying. I thought it is a Windows issue, but Chrome works well, no hiding popups, just alligning them bellow the taskbar. I don't wanna use Chrome, so please, let me know about workaround. Thanks. hippo

My shortcuts had large images on them and now they are half the size, but the shortcut is still the same size. How do I make larger images or go back to the theme I had before the last update. I'm using Firefox browser 89.0 (64 bit) for Linux mint. I hate this new theme. I'm getting older and sometimes my eyes don't work like before and I have to read the text. Images are easier for me to see. Don't make things that I have to accept. Thank you.

Hi. I use a web-based program for work. Each page has a set of built-in keyboard shortcut I can use to speed up work. After switching to FireFox, I lost that ability and see FireFox menu instead. I thought Alt-key was the issue, so I disabled it in FireFox, but that didn't really address my issue. Is there a way to enable keyboard shortcut? Not FireFox keyboard shortcut, but what's on the website. Thank you for your help.

Hi,

I recently had to "refresh" Firefox after internet connectivity issues (Firefox would randomly be unable to connect to the internet for several minutes at a time, many times throughout the day). A refresh seemed to take care of that connectivity issue, but it did reset everything else. I'm having issues now where Firefox is automatically logging me out of accounts that I would normally be logged into all the time. Passwords don't autofill anymore when I attempt to re-login to this accounts (even though post-refresh I have opted for Firefox to remember them).

"Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" is currently UNchecked, and besides that, I haven't quit Firefox. I've put my computer (mac) to sleep several times but I don't quit firefox when I do this.

Any other ideas? I've used Firefox for years without a single issue but have had several things pop up over the course of the past month that are making it a bit inconvenient...

Thanks in advance-

I have 3 systems that I want to use Firefox Sync on.

PC: everything. Laptop 1: everything but addons and settings. Laptop 2: bookmarks only.

I cannot make the sync settings persistent. After every sync all system sync settings reverted to the latest sync system. For example, set sync setting for laptop 2, then after sync started on 3 machines all 3 only sync bookmarks now; set sync for laptop 1, then after sync everything is on Laptop 2. Chrome did this really well so I can isolate some sync features on certain machines.

How can I do this on Firefox?

I've noticed that after watching YouTube on any speed greater than 1x starts to consume more and more memory on my system which does not go away until a restart occurs. This is repeatable and occurs when in private mode without any extensions enabled. I've done this on Chrome with the same extensions enabled as well as a fresh Edge and this problem does not occur. I am running Windows 10 Home Version 19043. The leaked memory gets put into Desktop Window Manager when viewed in task manager, but I have isolated it to Firefox by launching in safe mode without any other programs running and seeing the lead occur as soon as I start viewing a YouTube video at faster speeds.
