Yesterday, my Firefox History browser stopped saving almost all pages. The only pages it does save are ones like this: Firefox pages. I have no idea why it's doing this; I haven't been doing anything differently. I'm using an old Macbook - Mac OS X 10.6.8 - if that's relevant. I'm like a 95-year-old from the early 90s when it comes to technology, so please dumb it way down. Thanks.

Why do you think it's good to force me to upgrade my operating system so that I can have the upgraded firefox? I will lose the use of programs that are important to me and CANNOT be replaced! There is NO free alternative to MPEG Streamclip. CopyPaste is no longer available. I use these, and other perfectly functional programs on my dinosaur Mac OX 10.8.5. The upgrades do not provide me with discernable added value. As you can see, this is a rant.

However, we received a "thank you for your generous contribution" of $100 (8:02 EST--we are on the west coast) just after this. Has my information been compromised?

My unsorted bookmarks used to appear in the library window in a folder called Unsorted Bookmarks but now there is no folder by that name. They only appear in the toolbar, not the library. There is nothing in the "Other Bookmarks" folder. I'd like to be able to organize them in mass in the library window. Working in 48.02 and old Mac OS10.6.8. Not really sure whether this happened in an upgrade. Thanks!

For example, when I put my Gmail account into my bookmarks and see it on my tool bar, it shows only an "M" icon. I want it to read "Gmail" after the icon. Or, my health care provider says "My Health Manager". I would prefer it to read "Kaiser", which is the name of the HMO.

If you can, kindly list each little step in detail. I am not automatically tech savvy or intuitive. Thank you!

Using Windows 10

I've read many forums and it seems the issue has still NOT been resolved. I am using v48. Unless I KNOW for certain that this issue of NOT BE ABLE TO MOVE THE PROGRAM WINDOW ON THE DESKTOP has benn resolved in v49, what point is there to move to v49?

I've have change extensions or added new ones in years. When will this fixed? It may NOT seems important. but it is. I do NOT want the Firefox program window stuck in place on my desktop.

And what is with that silly thing (it changes color based on the tab) where there no real titlebar at the top, that actually seems to PREVENT the user from even attempting to move the window at all?

When a bookmark is added to the Bookmarks Toolbar, Mozilla puts it at the bottom of the Toolbar list. The user wants a new bookmark added to the top almost always, NEVER to the bottom. Not only is the default wrong, but users are not given a preference setting for this that I can find on the Firefox site. Did I overlook it, or is this something we can hope to see in a future update?

About a week ago I could no longer open firefox (my standard browser)

I could not find what causes the problem. Firefox would appear in 'task manager' but not on the screen to start using it.

I came across an old version of firefox in my downloads and installed this.

I now have found out that the latest working version for me is 48.0.2. I also tried the nightly version 52 but it didn't work neither. Currently I am running 48.0.2 after the auto-update I will no longer be able to use firefox and will have to reinstall 48.0.2

I am using a desktop version of Windows 10 Pro / 64-bit / Dutch version On: i5-4670 cpu @ 3.4Ghz / 8Gb RAM
