Okay -

I want to delete all my bookmarks, including any locations where Firefox may store backups of my existing bookmarks so that I can start again. My current file is FUBAR in the extremis and can't be fixed.

Preferably I would like an addon that will ask me "Delete all your BMs ?" and then just go do it.

IF (heaven forbid) you think I need to crawl around in Explorer to find specific files and delete them, can you PLEASE tell me where they are.

And, if you need (as someone did earlier on another forum) that I do things like access Firefox profile, Can you please tell me how to do that.

Just to maybe help a wee bit - all my add ons and downloads are up to ate as regards updates and are all the latest issue.

When I install, I NEVER change the defaults for folder locations.

Sorry to be feeble.

Thanks

Firefox's display language settings are not applying. I've set them to english, but it's still displaying everything in another language.

Menus on Firefox itself are displaying in my native language, when I've set them to English.

I've uninstalled all language packs that aren't English, even removed other languages in Windows settings to make sure Firefox displays menus in the language I want, but none of it worked. Already checked about:config and removed any traces of other languages. The settings page itself and other Mozilla webpages are all displaying in the correct language, but the application itself is not.

It started doing this after the most recent update, was working fine before. Only explanation is Firefox is using my location to set a language and completely ignoring my language settings. Should I just wait for it to be fixed?

When I want to search for something on a website, I hit CTRL-F which activates full-screen mode. I would like to know this shortcut can be reprogrammed to search for something within a page instead of activating full-screen. I tried searching this community and on-line for this information but could not find it. Thank you for your time. I use Mozilla FireFox 67.0.4.

I have a valuable history of browsing in Safari that I would like to bring over to Firefox. The only solution I have been able to find after an hour of searching is this product; iMazing. It appears to do just what I need, by exporting the Safari Browsing History from the database to HTML which it says can then be Imported into Firefox. Sounds good, but I would prefer to not have to buy a 3rd party product. Any clues? Thank you.

Since May 2019 update WHY is Firefox 67 so messed up? Constantly changing proxy setting and not able to set it and have it remain set for no proxy. Frequently runs new tab non stop across top of page and unable to stop it from running , I have to log out completely to get the running tab to stop. But it only starts up again when I open Firefox again. \ Eliminated all add-ons and extensions. I had set up extensions with new directions to allow the specific extensions to be downloaded.

Constant message can't find server col122.mail.live.com, when Firefox opens and sometimes this occurs when proxy setting  has changed  on its own .   But this "can't find server" message shows up almost every time I open Firefox and is NOT  always associated with proxy changes.    

This update has been a BIG HEADACHE  !! AND THEN TODAY THE WHOLE THING CRASHED my computer. It took me over 5 hours to get my computer up and running again. However, I am Still getting the message "can't find server col122.mail.live.com" and proxy changes randomly.

HELP PLEASE

I am using ver 67.0.4 (64-bit) on Windows 7 Professional. I have been able to open new search results in separate tabs. I do not want them opening in the same tab. It used to be that I could toggle browser.search.openintab to True and it would work. No luck now. It keeps opening in the same tab. :-( Open links in tabs instead of new windows is checked.

It seems with every new version something annoying happens and I am caught wasting time to fix this. How can I fix this? TIA.

I am trying to reach my cell phone provider for support, but I cannot get the 'Click her to chat' button to do anything?? Now I am going to be forced to call them for support, and that is a monotonous process that involves being put on hold for hours, or having to get a call back later in the day. The issue (attached) is that the page has a small red box in the middle of the screen that is used to start a support session when you click it, but clicking that box does nothing now. I KNOW this is a Firefox browser thing, and am personally getting sick to death of all of the useless, pointless security features added to this browser, that only seem designed to make it impossible to comfortably browse / use the internet. I am seriously getting ready to switch to a more user friendly browser, in order to be allowed to use the internet without Firefox constantly deciding what I am and am not allowed to do online, unless they can fix this!!
