All of a sudden pressing Ctrl-Shift-B no longer opens my Bookmarks window (Library), but instead closes my bookmarks toolbar!

Is there a way to revert this shortcut back to what it's been for the longest time?

I know the "new" combination is Ctrl-Shift-O but I've used the old one so often (maybe 50 times a day), that this change is nerve-racking.

Thanks.

I love Firefox and have used it for years!

I am working on a Macbook Air, with the latest Big Sur iOS.

Today Firefox was working fine.

Then (in an attempt to use a new software that requires an old version of Firefox) I uninstalled my current Firefox and installed an old version of Firefox. (Side note: the old version of Firefox would not work with the new software's imacros because of Big Sur. So I have installed Parallels so I can run the new software on Windows.)

Soooooooo, I uninstalled the old version of Firefox, and then downloaded the lastest version of Firefox. I installed it as instructed.

Two things are happening:

1. Firefox icons in Applications and in the dock both show as a shortcut. I cannot seem to install a non--shortcut version of Firefox! 2. EVERY time I now open Firefox, it requires me to re-login to Firefox AND reinstall the extensions. Very annoying!

So I know I'm missing something. Not real technie, so any help is appreciated!

Thank you!

Hello, We run a website that uses a bookmarklet button which allows us to capture the current URL location and save it. This is placed on the Tool Bar where its easy for a user to use. Until now, its been working perfectly but with this latest update to FireFox we are seeing the pop-up blocking being activated with the yellow message bar at the top. Now this would be ok if we only had to allow the pop up once (by clicking allow site), but unfortunately the bookmarket button has to be able to work on all sites, which is the whole point of the button. So its impractical to keep allowing it every time its used. Disabling the pop-up blocker completely then works, but then the browser is open to other pop-ups. Is there any way to allow bookmarklets to display a pop up and not display a pop-up message? Without having to disable the entire pop-up functionality. Can the FF developers allow for user placed bookmarklets to not be pop-up blocked. Maybe an exception added for that. They are placed manually by the user so are allowed by the user only.

Thanks for reading. Paul.

While I'm testing local testing for website, whenever I typed/entered localhost OR localhost:8000 Firefox keep redirecting/guesing subdomain for it(which="www"). Made my testing messed up.

There's same issue on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1216065 None of those work.

Please, stop. Chrome and Edge behave normally. This site need darkmode :/

1. I'm using containers and they are not allowing me to sign into theregister.co.uk site or any bbc.com or bbc.co.uk site if I open the site within a container.

On theregister.co.uk, clicking on log in refreshes the page but nothing else.

On the BBC sites, clicking on log in opens the same page in one or two new tabs. Oddly, if I've logged in outside of container, the Log In button flashes momentarily as Account which is what would be in the place if I were logged in.

I've tried clearing the cookies for both sites but it doesn't help. I can log into either without a problem if it's not in a container.

2. If I remove a site from a container's site list, I cannot open it in that container.

Any ideas?

https://qsurvey.mozilla.com/s3/Give-feedback-landing-page

which undoubtly seems like a redirect error.

Tried this Link on my Firefox (with addons), Firefox private and Edge, always the same result.
