I am trying to move my mobile bookmarks from Firefox to Brave. I've synced them with no trouble from Firefox Android to desktop. I can see a folder in the Firefox bookmark manager called "mobile bookmarks", and it contains all my mobile bookmarks. From there, I can open them in Firefox, Brave, Edge, and Chrome. No problem.

When I click "Import and Backup", then "Export Bookmarks to HTML", I'm able to save the HTML file to whatever location I like - desktop, Downloads folder, etc. However, when I go to open the file, it only contains the Mozilla default bookmarks. None of the "Mobile bookmarks" folder is visible. The HTML file is only 11 kb.

Screenshots are attached. Using Firefox version 113.0.1.

FWIW, I've also tried directly importing the bookmarks to Brave using their import feature (not using an HTML file), and Brave does not recognize any bookmark files whatsoever from Firefox. Getting really frustrated.

This happens only on Firefox and Firefox Developer Edition on one of my PCs and not the other. Firefox is version 113.0.2 (64-bit) and DE is 114.0b9 (64-bit)

Anyone experienced this before?

I have a website that open pop-ups automatically using javascript. That is the expected behaviour of it. So I went into Firefox options and made an exception for that site. If I go to the site and wait so it can do its thing, it opens about a few of them, and then Firefox decides that the rule I have set up is garbage, and firefox decides to ignore it and block the pop-ups from the site.

Why?

Why on Earth does Firefox decides that he must do something against the rule that the user has set up. Why does it have this completely disrespect to the user settings?

I am honestly really mad at whoever decided that ignoring an exception from the user was the default behaviour.

Now, if someone knows enough what is going on they will tell me, go to about:config, go to this obscure command and change its value, value which I can't know without coming here and ask. If I create an exception, then I am in my right to expect that the browser should do exactly as the exception has been configured.

By the way I have tried with the troubleshooting mode and still happens.

Hello,

I am a developer on an emergency intervention hotline for sexual assault.

Firefox is now throwing up psuedo-modal advertisements for it's VPN above pages. See attached screenshot for example.

It is absolutely IMPERATIVE that our visitors do not receive these new modal advertisements that Firefox is throwing at them. What can I do to prevent Firefox's new browser-hijacking advertisements from showing up on our hotline pages?


I experienced this on Twitter, and it 100% was not part of the dom. It also greyed out the tab bar, and prevented me from opening the menu with alt. I know how to make it not show up anymore on my machine, but how can I prevent it from appearing on visitors to my website, who are in some of the most vulnerable times of their life.

I stupidly upgraded to the worst system in the world, Windows 11, and the silly animations caused serious strain on my device. I disabled the animation effects in settings, but now when I use Firefox as usual, the loading page icon animation has become a static hourglass icon, which is unfriendly. How can I enable the loading page icon animation while keeping the system animation effects turned off?

The title pretty much sums it up. I even tried drastic measures such as logging out then completely uninstalling Firefox and removing any leftover data on both platforms. After reinstalling and connecting to the Firefox account they will sync with previous data but any new data I add on Windows won't show up on Android and vice versa. I also obviously tried forcing a sync manually... I really wish I didn't have to switch to another password manager any help would be greatly appreciated! :)

Hello everyone. I do not know if any else has experienced this but I have several websites that I cannot sign in to. I have no problem reaching the sites but when it comes to signing in I either get a message that my sign in information is not correct and this happens on Bestbuy.com or I get this message on Chewy.com Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://www.chewy.com/app/login" on this server. Reference #18.88dcda17.1684871617.2bce7d64 . Now if I use the awful MS Edge I have no problem signing in to either one. I have racked my brain to figure this out even disabling each addon which I only have a few. I have ran scans for Malware with Norton 360, Malwarebytes and MSERT and nothing there. I was hoping someone could shed some light on this in some way or maybe change a setting in Firefox that I am overlooking. I can access these sites fine and move around in them but like I said I cannot sign in into them. I would greatly appreciate any help.

Respectfully, DT

Hello all,

I am having problems with video playback on some websites (see screenshot attached). The problem is that the video options start to "multiply" - for example, when I start the video there is (as is normal) one 'Speed' and one 'Quality' button, but then every second these buttons start to multiply. This happens only on some websites - for example, it does not happen with normal videos on YouTube, although it happens on YouTube Shorts sometimes.

This is my first question on the Mozilla Support page, I thank you in advance for your help and I hope I follow the community guidelines. Please feel free to leave any suggestions or feedback concerning how I should proceed for asking for help in the future.

I recently upgraded my system and, after installing and using Firefox, I notice the Find (Ctrl + F) bar is now at the bottom of the window. Whereas, it was previously at the top (which is more like every other application I use).

After some head scratching and web searches, I remembered I had to fix this issue previously (after a Firefox upgrade some time back). The method to fix it then could be found here: [there a way to put the Find Bar at top] That link is of course to the same question asked 4 years back.

I have once again followed the procedure there explained per: • Access my Firefox profile folder. In my case:

  C:\Users\<Me>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\5ym42ewi.default

• Create folder therein called ‘chrome’ • In that folder create a file called ‘userChrome.css’ • In that file add text:

  .browserContainer > findbar {
    -moz-box-ordinal-group: 0;
  }

However, after doing that (and restarting Firefox), the Find bar stubbornly remains glued to the bottom of the window.

Can anyone tell me how to solve this issue?

As a separate note to the developers: This issue is long-standing, that a web search reveals is still relevant to many users. Any chance of considering making it a standard option?

Years ago the find bar was located at the top of a page. The somewhere along the line it was moved to the bottom.

Some good guys realized that's a problem for some of us and came up with code to put into a .css file. That was in 2017/18

The code has worked until last week ~2023/05/15.

Now the find bar is firmly planted at the bottom of the page...very awkward place for me. Makes edge look like something to consider as their find bar is still at the top.

I've check the code and no problems...I say it appears firefox is no long allowing this customization code to be used.

I've checked the knowledge base and the same articles from 2017/18 are still there...and the solution no longer work.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I hate traversing from the top to the bottom to do my work. The find bar at the top really made it convient and easier to do my job.

thanks for any help.
