Hi: Can anyone help me to recover BOOKMARKS which I've found missing after today's starting my Firefox Browser/Thunderbird and trying to use one of the BOOKMARKS: this is for the first time I've lost them just by opening the Program after I've about 3 weeks ago Upgraded my Windows 7 to Version 10 - under Windows 7 they were working properly without any 'accidental loss'. Question: - is it possible to use the Bookmarks-Back Up file to re-install them - IF NOT, what is the other way to reliably re-install them ...? My PC-system is: Windows 10 Home, Ver 10.0.19042 (20H2), CPU; Intel Pentium D 935 3.20Ghz (dual core), x64-based processor, 32-bit. I'd greatly appreciate any SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS how to accomplish this. Tony H.

I work with a site from where I can download content only from a pop up window, but when I do click on the download it does not show progress. However, in my regular window(non pop up) when I download any content I see the download progress. Is there a way to enable download progress icon in the pop up window toolbar?

I've managed multiple profiles, and used the profile manager for years.

Usually, when I want to update/replace a session from one profile to another, these are the files I transfer.

When I launch the profile, it should open to the same tab as in the previous profile, and the tab count should be the same. That is, until today.

No matter what I try with the new profile, the same old session keeps coming up.

The 89.0 (64-bit) update to Firefox is a joke! When are fixes coming or is there any way for me to return to the previous edition. I cannot get used to this charade.

I think that Firefox is by far the most superior browser and this update is just so not Firefox. It hurts. It hurts really bad!

Help! Today, I updated from v. 88.x to the latest v. 89.x of Firefox for Mac OS. Unfortunately, the new look and interface of v. 89 is very difficult for me to see and use. The menu bar items (text and icons) are too small, and everything is too small, too light and low-contrast gray with no borders ,etc. I've been using Firefox for Mac OS for at least 15 years, and I've never been so dissatisfied by the look of an upgrade. I am running on a Mac Pro with OS X 10.14.6.

Having played with the various preference menus in v. 89.x that I could find, I am not able to find settings to return the look to that of the previous version. Is there a "theme" to make the interface user-friendly again, or do I need to actually revert to v. 88.x? If I need to go back to v. 88.x, how do I do that and preserve all of my original settings, bookmark, etc.? Thank you!

Whenever I used to download pdf files there would automatically be a number added in paranthesis. Example- test.pdf (1) and the next one I would download would show up test.pdf (2). Made sepearting all of my files very easy. Now, however, every download is just "test.pdf." No number automatically added. How can I go back to how it used to work?

Netflix quit working today. It said my browser version was no longer supported. I updated from v.86 to v.89. It looks like crap. New tab + icon is gone. "tab bar" is not transparent or dark mode. And guess what: Netflix still doesn't work. That's probably their problem but now I have no Netflix, weird crap on the whatever bar, add-on icons are gone, and this big gaudy tab bar.

How do I rollback to a previous version? I'd rather not have excuses or sales pitches as to why 89 is better from the newer-is-better crowd. For me 89 is NOT better.

So, how do I rollback to a previous version?

Honestly, I came home last night and clicked on the LinkedIn open tab to discover I had to log in. I have never had to do that. I never logged out. My log in and password were not offered or suggested. Then I discovered other tabs that had logged me out. Then I discovered I passwords had disappeared. I do not know what happened. I didn't update anything. I have spent hours trying to fix this. I followed one route to create a new profile and now I have lost the 73 tabs open over 3 windows for my businesses. Damn! I am fuming! And with no phone support this is the end of working with Mozilla. Can someone please help me? I'd like to wind back to yesterday morning!! Profiles, everything! I managed to find my bookmarks, but I have lost time and lost business. Help! Please!
