For my system, I went to Settings and scrolled all the way to the bottom to Network Settings and clicked Settings. This opened a Connection Settings window and the first section is titled Configure Proxy Access to the Internet. My installation of FF had four proxy options to choose from and mine was set to Use System Proxy Setting. I decided to check "Auto-detect proxy settings for this network" and I clicked OK at the bottom and closed the Settings tab. FF took off like a rocket! After months of using Chrome because of the extreme slowness FF had, I can now continue on with FF and zip around the internet at warp speed. I am very happy!!

many times I will have many tabs open in a browser, covering different subjects - cars, science things, sports, movies, etc. Is there a way I can cluster all the related topic tabs together, in an order I tell it? Also, color-coding would be a great visual cue - like red tabs for sports, blue for cars, green for science, etc. Can I order and color the tabs like that either in general setup or any available add-ons?

Okay, this has been happening for months now. My site has been intermittently slow on one of my office computers. Thought is was a host issue so fought with them for weeks on trying new setting on the server but they could never see the issue on their end. Main problem is in the admin area of my shopping cart (CS-cart) being super slow but would also occasionally appear on the front end. Sometimes it may only happen for a few minutes, other times would happen all day (or now all week). Then office computer number 2 started having problems with my site. It was so bad (like took minutes to even pull up my site) that I had to install Chrome so orders could be printed. Been running it for a few weeks now without issue but just tried FF again and the problem still persists. I have tried clearing the cache/history on both computers and even on computer 2 completely uninstalled without storing data but still have the issue. What is more frustrating is it happens only occasionally on one computer, pretty consistent on the other and computer number 3 on the same network has no problems. Was even thinking it may be Cloudflare (browser console listings) so disabled using it but that just seemed to have fixed the issue on one computer but not the other. But everything is so random I really don't know where the problem is. All I know is using another browser for a few weeks now has fixed the issue on both computers. I should note that I am on my site constantly so I may see a few hundred pages a week (history was a 6300 on one computer when I cleared it) Anyone have any suggestions?

Apparently I created created a Mozilla Support using my personal email address as some point in time (probably a long time ago). To clarify, it's not the email attached to this account. I had to create this as a temp account due to the issues with my primary account.

Best I can piece it together, I then later created an account for "Firefox Sync" under a different email address, then changed my Firefox Sync account email to my previous email address. Here's the chronology:

2015? Created Mozilla Support account with personal_email@outlook.com 2016? Created Firefox Sync account with work_email@mywork.com 2020? Firefox Sync, Mozilla Support all merge into "Firefox Account" 2021: Before leaving my employer, I switch my "Firefox Account" email from work_email@mywork.com => personal_email@outlook.com. Firefox Account doesn't complain, all goes well and personal email works fine as my primary Firefox Account identity. 2021: I attempt to log into Mozilla Support using my newly merged "Firefox Account" and receive the following red toast error messages: Error 1: "The email used with this Firefox Account is already linked to another profile" Error 2: "This account is not active. Please contact an administrator if you believe this is an error"

Hopefully that all makes sense, any ideas who to fix this? Assuming it's impossible to log in with my old/original Mozilla Support account, so I appear to be at an impasse.

Just updated to Firefox 92.0. I use a Windows high-contrast style as my eyesight is not good, and the 92.0 update has trashed this style. I am having a terrible time viewing... anything... in Firefox. I either need to revert to the previous version or make changes to Firefox preferences, if possible; to restore the high-contrast scheme.

Also noticed that changes were made to the drop-down bookmarks toolbar... the spacing between entries has now doubled, so now only half the bookmarks appear at a time. The previous spacing was not a problem. Again, is there a way to change it back?

Since v91.0 all webpages display incorrectly:

1. many coloured areas are mostly white 2. elements are missing or nonfunctional, i.e. invisible "x"s to close pop-ups, checkboxes that don't work etc 3. many pages look very weird and only vaguely as they have previously, or as they still do in other browsers (Safari)

I have attempted to attach a couple of screenshots showing: a) today's Weather Network page in Safari (which looks much like it always did in Firefox prior to v91.0) and b) how it now looks in Firefox

The difference is striking.

…but they are ≈3.8 MB each and this page won't allow any image attachments >1024KB. Can anyone suggest how to reduce the size of a .png image on a Mac?

After a few weeks of struggle I am close to abandoning Firefox after many years…

Can anyone help or offer any suggestions?

BTW the "Email me" checkbox below doesn't react when I click on it (although it does if I try this page in Safari), so I don't know if the box has been checked or not… Which is a perfect example of the type of problem that I am referring to, and which is rendering Firefox unusable for me.

So in plain text: PLEASE DO EMAIL ME IF ANSWERING THIS THREAD.

Many thanks.

I am backing up my bookmarks to a HTML file as I have been doing for several years. Recently I noticed when I opened the backup file there were two sets of bookmarks shown, one from several months ago (out-of-date and unneeded) and the current one.

I want to eliminate the old set of bookmarks, but I cannot figure out how to do it. The funny thing is the old set of bookmarks is NOT showing in my bookmark library. It is like a ghost set of bookmarks.

Any suggestions?
