I keep getting 404 messages when I try to go to web sites. I use LinuxMint 20.

Constantly getting https://app.getresponse.com/error404.html and

The page you're looking for doesn't exist.

Here's what might have happened:

   you may have mistyped the URL
   the site was moved
   it was never here

Double-check the URL. Alternatively, go back. error404

So need help to get out of this GetResponse or something really aggravating. Loy Banks

Why won't the bookmark in 'Other BookMarks' go away when I 'move' it (drag and drop) to where I want it in my saved bookmark directories? This is a copy not a move and I want a move function.

Why can't I delete a BookMark from 'Other BookMarks' without the same bookmark getting deleted where I sorted it (there is a link that shouldn't be there).

both these issues make it impossible to manage 'Other Bookmarks' and keep it tidy and minimal

Since an update about two weeks ago, every time I press alt-s the search/address bar is expanded. This is annoying, because we use this key combination to save forms of a web-application (our ERP). I didn't find an option to disable this behaviour. A web-search did not help. I found some suggestions, but none of them worked (eg. old discussions here: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=446830 or here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=343909)

Any Ideas?

OS: Win10 64bit FX: 78.3.1esr (64-Bit)

I downloaded my browsers from the developer sites. I have two Firefox icons on my workspace - one on the desktop and one in the taskbar. Although they appear to be the same icon, they each open two different versions of the Firefox browser. The desktop icon opens the 32-bit and the taskbar opens the 64-bit. I don't like the consistent overriding of my preferences when I open the 32-bit version I often open the browser to find my bookmark toolbar has been deleted. Over and over. Recovering my bookmarks bar is time-consuming and tiresome The 64-bit version has been consistent. I wanted to create a 64-bit desktop icon and have not found a way to do it. When I try to create a desktop shortcut for the 64bit Firefox (it only appears on the taskbar), I have mysteriously got Opera icons for each try. When I create a desktop shortcut from the open home page in the Firefox browser, the shortcut appears with the Startpage or the Opera icon. I learned that icons have their own folders.... so I found and opened one for Mozilla Firefox -but the folder has only three Opera icons and one Startpage icon. I have no idea how the taskbar 64-bit icon has kept its original Firefox appearance from the original install, nor how the 32-bit icon in the desktop has also maintained its appearance. I cannot find any other icon folders in any of the other Mozilla folders. Any suggestions short of starting over with uninstalling the lot and reinstalling?

Hi,

I'm trying to get into my onedrive through firefox, but it won't login, as described in the title. I log into my office 365 outlook mail (which works perfectly fine), and then I press the dots in the upper left corner and click on onedrive listed in the apps. I tried removing cache, cookies and all that, I tried reinstalling firefox, but nothing worked. For reference; it does work when I use edge or another browser, and it also works when I use firefox on another device.

Can anybody tell me what the problem might be? Thanks in advance!

As the title implies, I am unable to open any local files on Firefox. The tab just keeps loading forever and using up all available memory until it crashes the tab. (the browser still remains operational, since the crashing process is a child process of the main browser)

I took a look at the process in GDB and it looks like it's hanging in `read () at /usr/lib/libpthread.so.0`, called from libxul.so. (possibly a spinlock, since it also grinds one of my cpu cores down) I've checked and this problem is not related to my profile, settings, or extensions.

I'm at a complete loss for what to do now to fix this, since I don't have the time or disk space to build a full debug build of Firefox and figure out what's going on.
