I'm trying Firefox again after many years in the Edgy wilderness. In Firefox in Windows, you used to be able to specify where your bookmarks were located. I store all my files (documents, spreadsheets, etc) in a complex structure on my C drive and, ideally, I should be able to store my Firefox bookmarks in the same structure. It just doesn't make sense to store the bookmarks in a separate location. I'm pretty sure you used to be able to do this by specifying the root of the bookmarks structure as c:/Documents, but I can't see how to do it in the current version.

Since last upgrade Firefox seems unable to access any wordpress sites.

Always says to enable cookies. I've done that but still not possible access.

Is Firefox now becoming so "secure" it is useless?

There are more and more web sites where Firefox just is no longer a viable browser.

There is no clear "ENABLE" cookies option to resolve this just pages on explanations about safety yada yada yada.

I just want a button that says ENABLE COOKIES so I don't have to constantly seek answers to use this browser on a particular web site.

As much as I hate Chrome I am finding it more useful now than FireFox

After using gnome-tweaks to change my system fonts, Firefox has unexpectedly gone silent and no longer shows text in areas like the search bar, tabs, settings, bookmarks, and menus. Rendering websites works just fine, but Firefox itself won't show any text.

I have automatic updates turned off in Firefox, however, the browser will periodically pop up a window in the top right corner, upon firefox startup, asking me if I wish to update.

How can I permanently stop this window from appearing?

This pop-up window is a problem because the situation is occurring on the PC of my mother, who is elderly. If she accidentally closes the pop-up in the wrong way, by clicking on the "update" option, the next time Firefox starts it will attempt to update and open a new Windows security window asking for an administrator password, which she doesn't have. This leads to confusion and she is then unable to operate the PC, which can be a health and safety risk.

tl;dr : Please add an option for permanently disabling this update notification pop-up window because it is a safety risk.
