I downloaded my browsers from the developer sites. I have two Firefox icons on my workspace - one on the desktop and one in the taskbar. Although they appear to be the same icon, they each open two different versions of the Firefox browser. The desktop icon opens the 32-bit and the taskbar opens the 64-bit. I don't like the consistent overriding of my preferences when I open the 32-bit version I often open the browser to find my bookmark toolbar has been deleted. Over and over. Recovering my bookmarks bar is time-consuming and tiresome The 64-bit version has been consistent. I wanted to create a 64-bit desktop icon and have not found a way to do it. When I try to create a desktop shortcut for the 64bit Firefox (it only appears on the taskbar), I have mysteriously got Opera icons for each try. When I create a desktop shortcut from the open home page in the Firefox browser, the shortcut appears with the Startpage or the Opera icon. I learned that icons have their own folders.... so I found and opened one for Mozilla Firefox -but the folder has only three Opera icons and one Startpage icon. I have no idea how the taskbar 64-bit icon has kept its original Firefox appearance from the original install, nor how the 32-bit icon in the desktop has also maintained its appearance. I cannot find any other icon folders in any of the other Mozilla folders. Any suggestions short of starting over with uninstalling the lot and reinstalling?

I clicked to accept the latest Firefox add on which stated "all my bookmarks and tabs will be saved". They have all disappeared. If i click on the "old firebox data" on my desktop surely that should produce all the bookmarks and tabs. But no. Instead it brings up 2 file names with indecipherable titles. eg one begins "tula7e15.". And if you click on that you get just another set of technical titles like "saved telemetry-pings" or "features". And if you click on these it then says "file empty".

The same thing happens if I click on "Restore" or "Profile" ie it just leads me to a set of nonesense categories with nothing there. So surely there must be a simple way of restoring my bookmark titles ( I had about 40 bookmarks) given that it only took one click to remove them when I took up the firefox add on ?

Thankyou. P.s. please suggest something simple as I am not great with computer technology. Philip

Hello and good afternoon, My English is not so good, im Write with translator….

I would like to turn to you after desperately, unsuccessfully, and extremely annoyed looking for a German contact person but not finding it, because I have a problem with your browser. I like to use the Mozilla browser because it can be used very individually. But every time you do a major update, my settings are gone. This annoys you massively and tempts you to change the browser for good. And when I use Edge, I have the German Microsoft support at hand to give them my opinion on the crap they are pumping out. Different with you, there is no German support that is there for emergencies, you look for the wolf and what do you find ??? Nothing .. that sucks ... and had to be said and described here.

Now to my problem ...

I have created a possibility for myself via an additional Chrome folder and other source text (through instructions on the net, since I am only a layman) to display the symbol bar in multiple columns, which class worked. You can structure, organize and do your work quickly. That's what I love about the browser ... but since version 82 was installed, my bookmarks toolbar can only be found on the left side and one below the other ???? I just write down my frustration about it here and yesterday, without receiving any feedback so far, instead of being able to work in a structured way ... do you think that's good, good for using your browser ??? Good for the users ??? No, it's really annoying .... and by the way, this multi-column bookmark toolbar could also be a work of your community ??? Why do others have to do this for you? You always report nicely what you have changed, improved, changed !!!! What I am describing here would be a real improvement, and no matter which version was updated to, the bars would remain part of the browser !!!! And what is it now ???? On my laptop everything is just left and below each other .. annoying .... And it will be damn well possible to finally integrate this permanently into the browser ??? Otherwise you are finally rid of me and I use other browsers, and now I am curious whether someone will reply to this mail and my problem that now, after the update, probably 1,000,000,000 other users will be exactly the same, just maybe you do not write I think I don't get a fulfilling, satisfactory answer for me either!?!?!?!?

Hello!

I'm working on a small game (web-based) and I'm experiencing a very weird error with the new Firefox 82 update.

What I'm experiencing:

1. I can't logout. Every time I go to /logout, FF refreshes the account page. If I do the same thing on Chrome, it works. 2. I post something on the Forum - page refreshes. If I do CMD+SHIFT+R, the post shows up. 3. I can't login. I login, page stays on an AJAX request with loading. I do CMD+SHIFT+R, it logs me in and goes to the account.

This was all previously working fine in FF 81, and everything IS working as expected in Chrome.

I tried in Vanilla FF (without any plugins) and same issue. I disabled all external scripts that could cause this, and nothing is working.

Example here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/isba772aj49cpoz/Screen%20Recording%202020-10-25%20at%2020.46.04.mov?dl=0
