OK, I'm having a LOT of trouble with my sync, and bookmark archiving. If I export my bookmarks as html, and import them, none are in folders anymore! As far as I can tell, asking Firefox to "restore" from a particular date does something similar. The only way I understand to back up my bookmarks, and more them to another machine in an organized way is with the Profile folder (and profile.ini file). When I share that folder and that file, everything is copied exactly, and organized properly. So that being the case, what the h are "backup", "restore", "import" and "export" useful for?

If there some writeup on EXACTLY how to manage bookmark backups in Firefox? I've never seen one. You'd like to believe that when you "restore" your bookmarks, they end up organized the way they were originally.

I am sure if you've opened this thread, you are already familiar with the issue: Any time you try to stream Netflix or Prime, your Widevine plug-in you didn't even know you had crashes and you can't watch anything.

It appears to be a known bug, however for a long time now, no fixes.

Please help?

Upgraded from 60.9ESR to 78.8ESR Tons of empty white space being wasted in my address bar drop down, and the preferences+addons pages now only occupy half the screen so I have to scroll more to see all my options, click to fully read text boxes and open sub-menus?!

How can I make these things more compact? The Customize options don't affect them, though I've changed the "blow-up" address bar behaviour using policies.json.

So, I have been having this issue for quite a while and I'm not sure how to fix it. The issue is whenever I try to stream video and/or music, the page shuts down and a little yellow bar appears at the top saying, " The WidevineCdm Plugin has crashed." And I'm not sure how to fix this. This happens when I am trying to stream certain things such as Hulu, Spotify, and Crunchyroll. I have tried various options like switching DRM on and off, submitting crash reports, and even restarting my my computer. But those don't work.

If anyone knows how to fix this, please let me know. Thank you, and have a good day! <3

Greetings: My computer was shutdown and restarted by a colleague and I seem to have lost my browsing history and all the open tabs from my last session are not retrievable — restore previous session is not available / appears grey'd out. I am on a macbook pro running Big Sur and I do have a time machine backup of that last session — can I get back those open tabs and browser history from my time machine? Can I do it a la carte or do I need to wipe my whole computer and restore from there? Thanks in advance for your thoughts, Sam

For all past years, when I save bookmarks, they go to the bottom of my drop down icon. Then I double-click-drag to where I want them in my drop down list. In the past week or so, I can no longer do this. It seems Facebook now forces us to open the bookmarks window???? That's a whole lot of extra steps! In over a decade of Firefox I've maybe opened the bookmarks window a 10 times!

Bring back the ability to move bookmarks in one-quick-step. Why must all firefox "upgrades" make using firefox slower :(

Hi Team

We have a problem with printouts, i.e. when we have a generated printout and it is opened by the built-in pdf viewer in ff, then after clicking print, the spooler becomes clogged and the pdf file weighs almost 100 Mb. There are no such problems when opening the file with the installed Acrobar Reader DC application. A request for information on what may be the cause of this condition. I would like to add that this is the VDA VMware Horizon version 7.10. The Mozilla Firefox browser in the picture is 78.0.2 esr 64 bit.

Kind Regards, Mateusz Jędrzejewski E: mateusz.jedrzejewski@pkobp.pl
