This must have been designed by someone with SERIOUS brain damage. Every time I use it it shows its glaring deficiencies. Its like whoever designed it never used bookmarks before in their life and never used it after it was done. I use the term "done" very, very loosely. How can people like this get work?

When you add a bookmark a narrow window opens up (of course you can't resize it) but I wonder if I can change its size in about:config? If you have a lot of folders you can only see a tiny bit of them at once. Its just ludicrous.

Another bizarre thing about the Firefox bookmark system is when you click on a bookmark it overrides your last opened tab. Why on earth would any sane person do that? If you want to close it you can close it anytime. Is there something in about:config that can make it work properly?

Maybe there's an extension with a sane bookmark system that doesn't look like it was designed by a brain damaged nutcase?

Maybe its just an autistic thing. Brilliant in a few areas and totally out to lunch in others. Like common sense. Sorry to be so harsh but I cannot comprehend how Mozilla has not fixed this. Maybe they left Earth and are exploring other worlds.

Yeah I know....I need a bookmark program. Its just kind of convenient to have it built into the browser sometimes. Its more seamless. If only this wasn't so bloody awful. And I do mean bloody.  :)

If only I was smarter so I could code myself.....

When I load Chargehub.com into Firefox I should be able to see icons for electric vehicle charging stations plus a menu for such things as plug filters.

However, although the chargehub site loads with a Google map (after selecting Map) I don't get the EV charging station icons or menu. I do get POI icons such as for airfields, cemeteries, parks, churches, etc only when fully zoomed in. The Google zoom symbols and street map view options are also available.

I have not experienced this issue on any other WEB site including Plugshare or Chargemap. Further, when I open Google maps in Firefox and do the search, "ev charging stations in ontario canada", i do see the icons for charging stations.

I am running Windows 7 with Firefox version 107.01 on a desktop computer. Adblock and uBlock origin are installed. However I have the same results when running Firefox in safemode.

I do understand that Microsoft no longer supports Windows 7. However, my son is also running Windows 7 on his desktop computer, yet chargehub opens properly on his computer when using Firefox as his browser.

I've tried searching the WEB for an answer but no success so far.

Thank you in advance for any help.

Framerate drops after update to 107 on machines with Intel integrated graphics

Since the update to Firefox 107.0 (now on 107.0.1) from 106.0.5 on two Intel-based Macs with Intel integrated graphics running Windows 7 (I know...) under Boot Camp, I'm experiencing poor graphics performance in Firefox. I first noticed this when scrolling felt choppy and then subsequently on video playback (YouTube and other sites). Text input and other animations can also feel more laggy or jittery than previously.

This is very similar to what I first experienced when WebRender rolled out to these devices. At the time, I set gfx.webrender.force-disable=true. However, I believe that setting hasn't been heeded for several versions, so I was eventually using WebRender without issue. The release notes for 107 do not suggest that anything related to WebRender or compositing have changed, which makes this particularly baffling.

The amount of stutter is compounded after opening a second Firefox window (regular or Private Browsing).

I have tried Troubleshoot Mode with extensions disabled and disabling hardware acceleration, but the problem occurs in either mode (confirmed with about:support showing "WebRender" or "WebRender (software)" as appropriate).

I enabled gfx.webrender.debug.profiler=true to examine frame rates. Shortly after launching Firefox, frame rates remain around 60 fps and things feel smooth for a bit. However, the frame rate will periodically drop to about 22-31 fps for 5-10 seconds while playing a video or continuous animation without interaction. Viewing Task Manager for all users during this process does not show a notable spike in activity for other processes when the frame rate drops and overall CPU load is nominal.

Opening a second window causes the frame rate for all windows to drop to 30-31 fps maximum, which similarly periodically falls to 12-15 fps for a few seconds. It's clear that the target 60 fps is not maintained when more than one Firefox window is open. I had not checked the reported frame rate with a second window open in prior Firefox versions, so I do not know if this is a change, just that I hadn't observed an apparent degradation in regular use.

The two graphics cards in question for these two machines are: Intel HD Graphics 3000 Intel Iris Pro Graphics 5200 I believe both are updated with the last OEM (Apple) Boot Camp drivers for this hardware which, granted, are on the old side. I have not yet attempted later drivers directly from Intel, as I hadn't encountered issues until this recent Firefox update. I have not noticed an issue on my other machines running Firefox.

Any suggestions on restoring the graphics performance would be appreciated.

My Windows Task Scheduler contains an entry called "Firefox Default Browser Agent". If I delete it, it returns. If I disable it, it re-enables itself. How do I NUKE this permanently?

I already have telemetry and automatic updates both turned off.

A related problem is that the About Firefox window keeps saying "Firefox is being updated by another instance", even though I always "Dismiss" the prompt to download the latest version. (I'm using v107.0.)

Recently, I received a solicitation from MOZILLA to contribute with a donation. I willingly did so, since I use FIREFOX & THUNDERBIRD almost exclusively on 3 PCs daily.

 At the end of the donation screens, there is an option to contact MOZILLA either by Twitter, e-mail, or other options.  Since I do not subscribe to any of these modern social media outlets, I clicked on the E-mail option, expecting that I would get a refreshed screen so I could enter comments, etc.

Instead, when the screen refreshed, this is what I got: https://give.thunderbird.net , which ultimately led to nowhere.

 You accepted my donation gleefully, yet you continue to cloak your organization in unavailability to your subscribers.  This is not a vary fair & equitable situation.

Thank you. robert herold e-mail addresses: 17mkombi@gmail.com

I prefer to update Firefox manually, so in my Firefox settings, I have it set to: "Check for updates but let you choose to install them".

So I sometimes get a message when I launch Firefox saying "Update available. Download the latest version of Firefox." and I click "Dismiss"

Today, I launched Firefox (v107.0), got this update message, and clicked "Dismiss". However, when I go to About Firefox, it says "Firefox is being updated by another instance".

Why is Firefox ignoring my preference?

So, after years of higher-than-normal security in Firefox (64-bit, Win 7) and accompanying problems in loading some pages, I decided to refresh (hoping to reset and have most/all pages load and display fully).

Well, tried refreshing and didn't see the bookmarks saved. Read about "Old Firefox Data" folder and thought I could retrieve anything I needed later. Deleting and reinstalling Firefox has resulted in the "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible." windowed message.

Repeated uninstalls and reinstalls failed. Tried copying the "ng0ledtz.default-##########" from the "Old Firefox Data" folder into the C:\Users\username\Appdata\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\profiles folder with no success.

Please help.
