After a crash and reboot where I lost my bookmarks, I discovered a "file" of them in a folder I had created for another purpose on my desktop. I don't know how they got there! file:///C:/Users/Alan/OneDrive/Desktop/MECHANICS/bookmarks.html Perhaps saved in OneDrive and migrated somehow during reboot? Anyway, is there a way to transfer these into my newly downloaded Firefox browser? Thanks!

Hi Guys! I wanted to install twemojis in my Arch Linux distro (manjaro) but after installing bitsream vera sans font the userChrome.css fonts that I write in that file are not working anymore like the fonts are not installed, but I'm using that custom font in my Arch Linux (Product Sans) even any other font that I put in that file is not working, but If I use "font-weight: bold;" It's working so that means that the file is working but the fonts are not.

I'd appreciate any help. Thank you!!

i WILL SIMPLY REPEAT ANOTHER'S CONCERN; WHY DOES FIREFOX KEEP INTERRUPTING THE BROWSER W/THE 'ANNOYING' POP-UPS?! FORCING SUCH CRAP WILL ONLY ASSURE PEOPLE WILL GO 'ELSEWHERE' WHICH OF COARSE SUCKS AS NORMALLY THEY WOULD NOT WISH TO. TAKE A CHILL PILL FF! (Bad enough Thunderbird is a crap-fest as when lost you can not get it back and 'no one' really seems to have a clue. Just phony (in house) remedies that never work- probably why Mozilla is history!)

This is a minor issue, but it's really annoying me. I like having certain pages pinned on the page that opens when I open a new tab; it's easier than always having to search through my many bookmarks for pages I use every day. But I find it really annoying and unhelpful – and also embarrassing, if another person is there – that Firefox only allows me to do this if I also allow it to display sites I've visited. The two should be completely separate in my opinion, like on Chrome. I can delete individual sites, but they're just replaced with other, even less relevant ones. So now I have a blank, useless new tab page, instead of a helpful one that shows me the sites I need to get to, because I don't want to risk a coworker, friend, or family member randomly seeing whatever sites I may have visited once or twice months ago. (This doesn't have to be extreme (porn, etc) to be embarrassing; I don't necessarily want people to see that I've been shopping for jewelry or hair dye or whatever.) It's just unprofessional and unnecessary. Thanks for fielding my complaint.

I added a keyboard shortcut to Share/Mail and it fails. The menu flashes when the key combination is pressed, but a new mail message is not created. If I use the trackpad to select this menu item, a new mail message is created. I created another shortcut for the Eyedropper and this works.

I have tried everything and cannot manage to load any webpage that prompts a reCAPTCHA. The tab immediately crashes.

1- I've tried several webpages. They all work well until a reCAPTCHA pops up, the tab crashes and creates a dump file 2- I tried uninstalling Firefox, including erasing profiles and all Mozilla folders then reinstalling, and selecting refresh. It sill happens. No addons or extensions, and HW acceleration on and off 3- The problems goes away if I run Firefox on Troubleshooting Mode

Version is 94.0.2 (64 bit) running on Windows 10 21H1 on an i7 1165G7

Am I missing something? Is there a way to do a cleaner install?

Thanks for the help!

I have a new PC with Windows 11. Setting default programs in 11 is very complicated. My email client is Microsoft Outlook (https://outlook.live.com/owa/), which is accessed through the Firefox browser. When I get an email with an email link it defaults to "mailto", which defaults to the Windows Mail app, which I do not use. How can I make "mailto" default to Microsoft Outlook (https://outlook.live.com/owa/) running through Firefox?

Thanks, Jerry

I usually work with my bookmarks side bar open all the time. Until recently whenever I bookmarked a page it wourld show at the bottom of the 'other bookmarks' section. Now, I seem to have a 'recently bookmarked' section where everything goes. (Possibly I always had this section - just never used it!). If I move a newly arrived bookmark either to one of my saving folders or to or the 'other bookmarks' and then delete it from the 'recently bookmarked' section the bookmark in the folder is deleted as well. I'd like to go back to my simple life please..............
