Pre v89 Windows 10- for some reason, one of my bookmark folders, containing many subfolders and individual bookmarks, has disappeared from my bookmarks toolbar. interestingly, the lost Bookmark folder it does appear on my android phone. Is there some way of finding it on my desktop and restoring it from there, or possibly restoring it from my phone? I would think I would like to try to do this before installing version 89. Thanks in advance.

I don't know if it's a need to mark your territory, or some marketing major blathering about "holistic new user experience paradigms"--and I put up with the stupid move to tabs on top (because apparently some dev felt that what Firefox users really wanted was Chrome!)--but this is a hideous, steaming turd.

'Oh no, showing the 'close tab' icon and clearly delineating between tabs interrupts the synergistic flow of the UI! Let's make the tabs one disgusting, unreadable blur from left to right! Also, let's make them take up more real estate on the screen, because people have higher resolution screens now--we can totally dominate the upper quarter! Oh, and force the change to the new layout, don't give people an option to revert--and don't warn them, either! EVERYONE MUST SEE OUR MAJESTIC, PERFECT, UNASSAILABLE VISION! Surely that won't confuse TF out of a bunch of grandparents whose hapless children/grandchildren will have to completely re-explain, multiple times, how to get to Facebook!'

Rolled back to 88.01, went through the "new profile" crap you put in to discourage rollback/cover for poor programming, and disabled automatic updates. Barring a major, earth-shattering security vuln, I'm done updating. And when that time comes, I'll find another browser.

Posting here because they've stopped soliciting feedback--probably because they know they've unleashed a sloppy splattered dook onto the world and they're tired of being screamed at.

Currently on v88.0.1 on Windows 7 desktop, Windows 10 Laptop and Mac OSX Sierra. Looked at a review with screenshots of v89 and noticed a few issues. Where did the 'Customize Toolbar..." option go? It also appears the the 'Compact View' for tabs is being moved/phased out? that would not be ideal on a small screen. Being able to customize my view is one of the main selling points for Firefox. On Windows 10 HP laptop we still put up with occasional audio getting killed in Firefox (Edge never does this) and having to play a wave file in Groove Music to get the sounds back.

so for a while now, I don't know exactly but it has lasted throughout several updates, a bunch of my add-ons have decided to not show up in any menu where I can actually use them, they are listen in the actual add-ons manager and they are all enabled and up-to-date. I have un- and reinstalled all of the absentees several times over, I have done the reset thingy in the tool bar customization menu and have followed just about every piece of advice for similar issues on this forum and many others yet the majority of my add-ons still choose to feign non-existence. if it's helpful at all the culprit that alerted me to the problem was the YouTube Enhancer but it actually extends retroactively to add-ons I had installed way before that one that used to work fine. Also, and I can't say this with 100% certainty, I think at this point this problem applies to every new add-on I install, obviously I have only really seen it happen with the few add-ons I installed since this whole thing started so who knows if I'm just having bad luck picking add-ons that are shy. I have also disabled and re-enabled the add-ons that actually work and generally shifted everything around I case the 4 working add-ons are somehow blocking the all the others from being shown. I really really hope someone can help me with this because it's kind of frustrating being completely unable to actually use the majority of my add-ons :/

I'm looking for help with using GPO's to control Firefox settings. When I modify anything in the Preferences section, the GPO description says to use JSON to configure and has a github website. At the github website, there are two examples. Should I be using the Windows GPO example or the policies.json example? Also, in both examples, entries have a "status" value, where does this come from?

I realize now if I don't immediately allow updates then my ability to start up my computer after shutting down is delayed for ... an hour or more. I don't want to allow updates, as they are becoming more frequent; i can only assume they are in league with the likes of a microsoft update which is, essentially, a fishing device to scan my computer to record my searches and communications so they might sell that information, or, for other more nefarious reasons. i HAVE stopped the ability to update from Windows - internally. Just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean "they're" not out to get me, right? Funny, huh? There's one other thing, however. I can't communicate with customers. And when I can't communicate with customers, I LOSE MONEY. ... fix it. I don't mean a patch over a patch over another patch. Maybe a line of code? Anybody there?? That's what I thought.

The search engines I've added do not appear in the list after clicking the green + sign in the search box and they do not appear in the list in the options either. I used the "add more search engines" found in the bottom of the search engines list to find the missing engines and add them again, but when I find the engine I want to add there is only the "remove" button. So this tells me the missing engines in the list are still there but not accessible. I tried removing the added search engine and then adding it again but this did not make them appear in the search engine list. Everything was working fine until getting the last update before Firefox 89. Is there a way to fix this???

Newer release of Firefox auto-fill username and password when they should not. I have a web application that has a list of people. Optionally (form is even hidden requiring a click to see) a person can be a user (rare). My username and password are auto filled in ALWAYS now for the person (even when the form is not showing). Can I just change the field names (username, password) in the jsp and have Firefox NOT fill mine in automagically? Or if not, how do I tell the browser that these are normal fields - leave them alone PLEASE (do not auto-fill)?

Hello,

How can I permanently deactivate this nagging update reminder in the upper right corner (green arrow over Application Menu button) and frequent pop-ups in upper right corner where I have to repeatedly click on "Not Now"?

I'm not upgrading to v89 because the next update will once again BREAK my userChrome.css code and my user interface (with tabs on bottom and custom button images) will appear scrambled.

I'm quite tired of having to jump through hoops and search for CSS solutions to fix these issues every few updates. It causes me too much anxiety.

I'm sticking with v88.0.1 for the forseeable future.

How can I shut off this annoying update reminder permanently?

Thanks.

In the past month or so I have been unable to upload files from my PC to any file hosting/sharing accounts: YouTube, Google Drive, Vimeo). Every attempt is either stuck at "Upload starting" forever (waited 24 hours), or part way through the upload will fail with no meaningful information. When I switch to Chrome it works every time as expected. Again, note that so far I have not had any ongoing issues with downloads. The occasional failure, but nothing noteworthy. I have tried removing Firefox from my machine, wiping all folders, caches, etc. reinstalling - nothing fixes this issue. It has continued over approximately three FF major updates. Please assist. Thanks.
