"Pocket List" has disappeared in the drop down menu under the "library" icon where it used to be not more than a few days ago. It's not under the Bookmarks icon, either. the "Pocket" icon is in the menu bar, and I can save items to Pocket, but can no longer locate the page with the articles. "View List" does appear when you click the Pocket icon, but it also saves whatever page you're on whether or not you want to save it.

Upgraded from Firefox 88 to 89.0.2 on Mac OS and found some websites displaying blank pages.

https://docs.github.com/en/get-started/getting-started-with-git/caching-your-github-credentials-in-git Displays a white page. Other Github pages are fine.

https://app.pluralsight.com/player?name=f83ca95c-74e2-4a1d-8742-62b34ec47906&mode=live&clip=0&course=code-school-git-real&author=gregg-pollack Displays a dark grey page.

Both these websites were working fine in Firefox 88.

Any help much appreciated.

I just upgraded to Firefox 89.0.2 from a very old version of Firefox and noticed that the Open Tabs drop-down is missing. This is the symbol that appeared on the far right end of the open tabs that allowed me to see all of the open tabs in a drop down list with the entire tab name showing. How can I get this back?

Recently, I switched from using Windows to using Mac. While on Windows restoring previous session, for some reason, it never works on Mac. The setting is 100% saved - I checked Firefox js file, but it still doesn't restore it. Is there anything I can do? I really don't want to switch to another browser.

My tabs have been lost and I have a previous historic set before they went. Problem is how to get them to open FF?

When I use the profile folder (with FF closed) to remove the last and useless previous session and back up files, and replace them with the historic session files, when I reopen FF it still reverts to the session with no tabs. What can I do? Thank you.

I was looking for a bookmark, and came upon one folder titled: "Other Bookmarks", that has over 4,000 inside! It's shown as being a folder under the "All Bookmarks" heading, so it's not imported from anywhere, and it's not in the main Bookmarks Toolbar folder, although it does sit on the toolbar, but all the way over to the right hand side, off by itself. So who created it, why is it sitting where it sits, and who loaded 4,000+ bookmarks in it???

I cannot add a Zoom meeting to an Outlook meeting using my Outlook Web app. The Zoom add-in is installed and the button appears in the Web app. When I click it, I get the message "Zoom is working on your Add a Zoom Meeting request." But it just hangs there.

The Zoom add-in works using my Outlook Desktop client on the Mac and using Outlook Web in Chrome. Firefox seems to be the issue. Any idea what I can try to fix this?

One of the beauties of firefox has long been that I could use the backspace bar instead of the back button to return to the previous page when browsing. Somewhere in the last updates this wonderful functionality was lost. Is there anyway I can restore this? I'm suffering from Parkinson's Disease which oftentimes makes controlling my mouse nearly impossible.

My Firefox is currently on version 69.0. I am trying to update it by going to Firefox -> About Firefox. When I click about Firefox, the window opens displaying my current version. From the articles about updates I read, it should start automatically updating, but nothing happens. I click the "Restart to Update Firefox" button, and my Firefox session is restarted but I am still on version 69.0. I do not see any other way online to go about updating Firefox other than this route, so I am not sure what to do. Any thoughts? Thank you!

When I open a website using special symbols, the symbols are replaced by a sign with 6 hex symbols in it.

It even happens when the symbol is used in the page title (see image). Site used: https://emojipedia.org/yawning-face/).

Interestingly, other emojis from the same site are displayed correctly (means the '01F971'-type symbol is replaced by the emoji, in all occurrences on the site and title)

I have seen multiple threads about this, even on this site. However, I could not solve it with the suggested solutions. What I have tried so far:

1. Disable addons 2. Make sure fonts are downloaded through settings 3. about:config -> gfx.downloadable_fonts.enabled -> make sure its true (4. no-script is not installed)


Any ideas?
