I finally figured out why Firefox kept warning me about opening too many tabs at once: this command is the first option on the pop up menu when I click and hold a moment too long on a folder that is part of my bookmarks toolbar (some of these have dozens of bookmarks)

'Open all in tabs'

this is on my Windows 10 PC using Firefox beta.

Is this a command I can hide/delete/inactivate? I'm quite certain I've never wanted to do this and probably will never want to do it, and now on a machine where I use a mouse with right click it is disturbingly easy to click this accidentally. I want to disable the command entirely.

I did check about:config and saw nothing obviously relevant.

Hello. I've been using Firefox 81.0 with MacOS 15.7. I opened FireFox recently and after a few moments it froze, so I had to force quit. When I tried to open it again, it told me that 'A copy of Firefox is already open. Only one copy of Firefox can be open at a time.' However, I only have one copy open, or anywhere else on my HD. When I click "Okay" to close the prompt, Firefox freezes again and I have to force quit. I tried deleting the application using my existing Profiles folder. Again, it froze. I deleted the app and the Profiles folder, used Safari to download a fresh version of Firefox 81.0, installed it, and it ran for about a minute before freezing. Again, I had to force quit. And again, when I reopen it, the same prompt: 'A copy of Firefox is already open.....' I Firefox froze when I tried to close the prompt. I can't even reinstall a fresh version of FireFox. I don't know what to do. I'd greatly appreciate any help. Thanks.

Similar to this article, "https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cant-download-or-save-files" I am unable to download any files via browser. I am up to date on versioning (Windows 10, v81.0 64-bit), and I tried all of the steps in the article.

I have also tried resetting the "security.dialog enable_delay" value (it was correct at 1000) to 0 and downloads worked again, but setting it back to 1000 (or even 500) and the problem returns.

I also noticed that whether or not I have the General Option set to "use this folder" or "ask each time", I get the same dialog box and the OK button is greyed out.

I need to move the FF profile from a laptop to another but FF's been unresponsive for almost a week

I need to transfer my FF profile from a Sony to Lenovo. The hardest challenge should be moving from a Win 7 to a Win 10, but I'm not really worried about that. The huge problem is that for almost a week FF stopped pushing web notifications of any sort of any of the platforms I've authorized. Important (?) note: randomly a couple days ago the notifications started working for no reason, I wasn't doing anything in specific, just working. I took screenshots to see if the debugging - runtime: about:debugging#/runtime/this-firefox#serviceworkers and saw changes here and there but nothing that could shed light as to why this happened. Example: if the notifications working were all running or stopped but saying fetching or not fetching.. there weren't coincidences that IO could find anyway. I shut down the laptop, the next day the notifications were gone again and have been gone ever since. I think yesterday or the day before I downloaded FF again and ran it, but I don't think that did anything. I didn't uninstall it, I wasn't sure if doing so could worsen the problem in such a way I wasn't gonna be able to open FF at all. I know nothing about computers, any suggestion would be appreciated. I don't dare to move nor transfer anything to the new laptop afraid to keep having the same problem or worse in there too, not to mention I'm not familiar with it so I might have an ever harder time finding a work-around that could make something that doesn't work, work. My doubt is: whatever it is that is causing this defect, if I transfer this profile to the new laptop, will it continue to happen in there as well? Is it possible it's something wrong within the profile itself and if so what can I do to transfer all this data to the new laptop? I really need his profile. Is there anything I can do to know where this problem is coming from? Am I causing the problem unwillingly, but most importantly, will this keep happening in the Lenovo? Is there any way to troubleshoot this specific issue to make sure wtv it is, won't be transferred within the profile to the new laptop so it won't fail in there as well? Please let me know if you need more information, any tips would be appreciated
