Get bookmarks search to display matching folders as well as bookmarks

The native FF bookmarks search function only returns bookmarks that match the search term. How can I get it to also return folders that match? That is, if my bookmarks contain both a folder and a page whose name includes the word "climate", I need it to show me both of them when I search on "climate". Right now, that search returns only the page. Is there a setting or something that will make it return both?

The "Bookmark Search Plus 2" add-on does return both folders and pages. But it has another limitation: It doesn't have an "Edit Folder" or an "Edit Bookmark" function. So if I want to find a folder with search and then edit its name, I can't do it with either the add-on or the native bookmarks browser.

Whenever any website asks to access my location, and I allow it, Firefox tells that website that I am in a faraway place that I last visited over a year ago. What's worse, this place happens to be a very niche medical facility, which is upsetting as I don't expect to be revealing my medical history just by allowing access to my location.

I am not using a VPN or proxy or anything of that sort. If I look up my IP address in GeoIP2 or iplocation.net, it shows the correct city that I am actually in. How can I force Firefox to update my location (or at least, get it to uncache this old location)?

I'm using Firefox 109.0.1 on Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS.

I've been using Firefox for awhile but just in recent days I've noticed that logging in to selected websites takes much longer or fails. For example, it takes me 3 minutes to login to Fidelity. During the 3 minutes, I see the message "Performing TLS handshake..." being displayed in the lower left hand corner of my screen. I am running Windows 11 with the latest version of Firefox (109.0.1). This also happens when logging to United Health Care websites. The same problem does not occur with Microsoft Edge.

Any insight to this problem is appreciated. Thank you.

Local storage event listener not working in Firefox

I have a sandbox iframe which is hosted by various websites. Lets assume that this iframe is loaded like this: <script src="https://example.com/wie.js"></script> I have already added 'allow-scripts allow-forms allow-modals allow-same-origin allow-popups allow-popups-to-escape-sandbox allow-storage-access-by-user-activation' at sandbox. I also use document.requestStorageAccess() from inside the iframe and I set event listeners for the storage like this:

window.addEventListener('storage', onStorageFunc, false);. From the iframe a popup window is presented when user clicks a specific button and the popup opens at lets say at this url "https://paypal.com". After user navigation on popup, paypal at the end of the flow redirects user to this url "https://example.com/success". At this point when user is navigated to /success I add some data to local storage which I expect to trigger the storage event listener and the onStorageFunc to run. This doesn't happen, while in other browsers it works as expected.

Since both popup and iframe are under the same url (https://example.com) and I have used requestStorageAccess, I would expect this to work normally. Can you please help me to find out what is going wrong here? In the past I had the same problem but it was fixed when I added 'requestStorageAccess' and 'allow-storage-access-by-user-activation'. Now I can see it happening again.

Unable to Reduce Multiple Processes in Firefox

My keyboard regularly locks up using Firefox. I tracked the problem down to having upwards of 40 Firefox processes running in Task Manager. Disabling them or restarting Firefox only works for a few hours before the problem recurs.

Several people here recommend disabling "Use recommended performance settings," which should give me the option of selecting the max number of processes to be running.

However, when I disable the recommended performance setting, the hardware acceleration option appears, but not the process number selection. I'm finding no way to set the max number of processes.

I'm hoping for a work-around to that, or a different solution.

Thanks.

BTW, I also notice excessive processes running when I use Chrome. I'm concerned why this is happening on both my browsers.

This problem has only occurred in the last 24 hours:

a) I access a Word file with Firefox (maybe an e-mail attachment, maybe directly from an e-learning site); I tell Firefox to Open With Word 365; the file opens, but only in Read-only mode - I cannot edit the document at all; I cannot change this status from within Word 365.

b) I access the very same file from the very same source but now tell Firefox to Save File to my Desktop; I then open the file with Word 365 - it opens 'normally'; I can edit the document straight away.

Yesterday, it did not matter if I did a) or b), I could always edit the document straight away (Read-only was never 'forced' on me).

As extra background, I have turned off every Protected View feature in Word 365 which I can find - does not help at all.

I want to be able to go back to option a): Open With Word 365, NOT have 'Read-only' & be able to edit the document immediately.

Visiting some web page firefox prompt for my primary password , i imagine to access the login data of the site, but in principle the site may ask for anyone of the saved login data (or not?), so in lack of a clear login page i wonder how to know which private data are requested by the page.

is there any way to see what data are accessed? This is especially relevant if i've already input the master password, in this case there is no evidence to the user that private data are requested and accessed.

After having to refresh Firefox, all extensions are missing from my toolbar. They're still installed and function but some require tweaking options on a per page basis and it's a hassle to have to work through multiple menus when they should just be a click away. From other answers, it seems like the extenstions should be in the customise toolbar page but only the standard options are there. I've tried disabling and enabling them, as well as removing and adding them again already with no results.

How do I either get them back to the toolbar or the customise page so I can add them myself?

Firefox won't stay my default browser. Every time I sign on after rebooting MS changes the default to I don't know what. It doesn't say what is the default. It wants edge I guess but I deleted the entire edge app and all its dlls. So how do I make the choice through the "set defaults" settings permanent?

Hi there -

I just downloaded FireFox as my default browser on my new MacBook. Previously I was able to update the settings for how downloads behave. But I can't seem to find what I need now. Currently, when I download a file, FireFox ALSO opens it in a new tab...I don't want it to do that. I just want to download the file, but cannot find where to turn off its ability to also open the file in a new tab as I don't want it to do that.

Thank you for your help!

I am very unhappy after 2 weeks using the current version of Firefox 109.0.1.8427 on Win 10. Most of my prior add-ons are gone or do not work, even though Firefox shows them as installed.

I can't live with this version; most of my prior add-ons are not accessible (no symbols to click on even though Firefox says they are installed). The others are missing or require me to access the application menu plus several more clicks, instead of single-clicking an icon on the Firefox header.

How can I get back to the prior version (without having to determine and save/restore everything else that changed in my Win 10 sysres since the current Firefox was installed)?

Hi

Firefox 109.0.1 (64-bit) Mac Ventura 13.1

Google search page and a lot of sites (not all for example this support page) are having trouble rendering fonts.

I have attached screenshots which demonstrates the problem. The thing I do not understand if I go to the developer tools and alter the "font-family" from "font-family:Ariel, Sans-serif" to just "font-family:Sans-serif" bingo the font renders, the screenshots show this.

Other browsers like Chrome are having no difficulties.

There must be something simple I am missing, I have done a search but nothing is standing out as a solution.

Help would be appreciated. Cheers
