Greetings,

Today, I went to access my Bookmarks, & found them "Empty", other wise "Missing"!

I found the "How to recover missing Bookmarks" topics, & that did bring back,what I consider to be My "Permanent Books", bu the section called "Other Bookmarks" will not come back, no matter how many times I go through the "Restore Bookmarks".

I Absolutely need that section to be restored, for I had many files in that section that I updated daily, that I planned to move to the "Bookmarks Section".

How can I get get this section restored?

Adblock Plus - is it safe? Why Mozilla doesn't recommended it? I used it in the past some years ago but now I am scary about safety

Dear Community,

I would like to download this extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/pl/firefox/addon/adblock-plus/ I would like to know how it works. If I will install this extension my firefox will be check hashsum for the files of this extension automatically? Or maybe public key of the organization/company who created Adblock Plus extension? How it is work? Can you tell me? I hope that people from Mozilla now read this and can answer for my question. This is very important for me.

Next question is to Adblock Plus extension. I can read this information: "This add-on is not actively monitored for security by Mozilla. Make sure you trust it before installing" so my question is why Mozilla don't recommended this extension? This extension now use 6,678,297 people so this is huge count. It is possible that this extension is not safe and these people now use malicious software? Why on dedicated website for this extension I can't see company name? Why this company is not verified by Mozilla? So my sugestion for people from Mozilla is to change this and check this extension or maybe add some information on website for this extension.

So I should install this extension? My friend use this on Google Chrome and he recommended me this software but I don't know if this is exatcly the same version. Maybe Chrome has verified Adblock Plus software and this is safe but Mozilla didn't verified this and this can be dangerous software because this can be not exactly the same version?

Next question is to adblocker. Why Mozilla can't make their own software to block all annoying ads and due to fight with malware? Example Opera browser have own buil-in adblocker. Why firefox can't do this? Maybe people from Mozilla should do this? This can be helpful because if this can be happen I will be not install any 3rd party software for firefox anymore and I will be safe. Maybe I can send somehow this suggestion to people from Firefox?

I hope that you can help me.

Yours faithfully, Peter

Hello. I had discovered that Firefox itself creates a so called "fork bomb" by creating a big amount of sub-processes under the main one (with I can prove thru the attached screenshoots).

Could anyone have a idea how to limit Firefox from opening so many sub-processess, with (wanting or not) are mostly causing that my system runs out of memory and stop beeing responsible to any of my inputs, with forces me to restart the system (similar thing is done by an DOS attack)

I have a staging site for my website which is protected (not visible to the public) and requires authentication with the username and password to be accessed.

Firefox is blocking access with the authorisation window coming up empty again and again and again when I enter the credentials.

So - I have to use a different browser just to access this one site.

I have cleared the cookies and cache, removed the site from the browsing history - Firefox is still blocking the access.

how can I unblock it?

I use Windows 64 bits on my PC.

I'm using firefox 88.0.1, Windows 10. I also use "Adblock plus" and "YouTube enhancer". When I watch a YouTube video, it almost always forces the highest resolution. I don't mean "default", I mean "force". When I change the resolution to 480p (or anything else) it immediately reverts to the highest setting. Then it buffers (preloads) the video, using much more bandwidth than just the "per minute" toll for 1080p, because it is using bandwidth for the preloading as well. Is anyone else experiencing this (I think it started just this month, May 2021, or not long before that)?

I put on the latest upgrade, but now os won't accept any old password and I cannot use sync as I have no access to my logins and passwords. If I choose forgot password , the system will destroy all my logins anyway. I can spend a great amount of time recreating all passwords, or maybe I can downgrade to the last version, but I am unsure as how to do that??

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.

I've used Firefox since 2001. Twenty years I've been able to customize it like I want.

A few months ago I switched from ESR to Release channel because the release version could still be tweaked to the way I like it. Huge mistake!

Version 89 totally destroyed everything I like about Firefox! I use Firefox on a large monitor from my easy-chair. I NEED compact layout. Everything is zoomed anyway. I hate the new tabs! I ESPECIALLY hate the double-spaced bookmarks! I want to continue to use a custom CSS in "chrome" folder.

I switched back to the ESR channel (FF78) and had to re-tweak my about:config settings, reinstall and tweak add-ons and load hundreds of bookmarks to get the favicons back. Unique favicons make it much easier to differentiate between sites. Generic icons suck. Major hassle!

I will stick with Firefox ESR until it too becomes unusable for me. At that point, sadly, my decades long use of Firefox will come to an end.

I include two screen grabs that illustrate how I like my set-up. Note how easy it is to tell one tab from another.

Why "fix" what ain't broke?

It's all in the title. The "quick searches" feature that pops up when I highlight text is a lot more annoying then useful, so I turned it off... and it seems to re-enable itself randomly. One time I disabled it, and after 5 seconds, it re-enabled itself. So annoying. I've made so many accidental searches with that stupid feature. I mean, how many people copy text just to search it up? Even then, they can highlight the text, right click, then click "Search (engline) for (text)".

The point being, the feature is re-enabling itself randomly, and it's getting on my nerves.

I don't see any option within the settings to turn it off. Any ideas?

Thanks,

I have this problem when typing in firefox input form (address bar, text area...), using Vietnamese Keyboard (Telex) of window 10: - After completed word and added a space, backspace to the end of previous word, press dot (comma...) key, that dot will replace previous word. Example: "buffalo has the horns and", backspace to "buffalo has the horns" then press dot key, it will be "buffalo has the ." - The problem doesn't occur if type the mark right after typing the word, when the dash line is existing under the word. - The problem doesn't occur in Edge, Chrome, Word, Excel, Notepad ... - The problem occurs when using Vietnamese Keyboard (Telex) of window 10, doesn't occur when using default keyboard of window 10. - Auto correct setting was turned off in Typing setting. I have used firefox for more than 15 years, and still don't want to switch to Chrome. Is there anywhere I need to configure?

Win10 professional in desktop Upgraded today 06/08/21 after much nagging.

I'm now unable to use the Google search engine box in the center of the page, it goes to the address bar -- font's too small. Besides, from what I've been able to gather, searches from the address bar may invite invasion.

I've done some research on similar questions, but the usual remedies, which suggest looking into Options and editing preferences, but my browser is now being controlled by "my organization" -- apparently Bitdefender Total Security, which is depriving me of access to the settings and preferences.
