I wanted to move the Firefox's automatically created bookmark folder "Other Bookmarks" into another folder (called To Sort folder). The folder was moved to the new location but it also remained in the "root" bookmarks folder. I tried to get it to be the other way round so that the "to-Sort" folder will be in the Bookmarks folder but- Trying to move it back it created a loop. Now when I go into the Other Bookmarks folder I can see the "To Sort" and it has a folder in it called "Other Bookmarks", which has the repeated same links and again the "To Sort" which has the "Other Bookmarks" which has the "To Sort" --> etc. ad infinitum

hello! hope you are doing well, I recently got this problem where the bookmark bar does not appear on my browser even though it is on the "always show" option, it appears when I first open the browser, but once I enter any site, it disappears again, even on new tabs, and when I try different options for the BM, it makes it appear for one use only. I tried looking for solutions on the internet but to no avail. can you help me fix it? thank you in advance!

Mac Dock won't disappear when I put youtube video (or other things like google slides) in fullscreen

Hi, I am using the newest Mac Air 15" with M3 chip, with the latest version of firefox (123.0.1) I have found an issue where when I put YouTube videos in fullscreen mode, the dock will not disappear like it normally would. The only workaround I've found is to put firefox in actual fullscreen mode (which then makes the dock disappear entirely), but I would prefer not to do as I typically maximize my screen instead. I'm assuming this is a bug on firefox specifically as fullscreen mode for videos/other things works normally in Chrome and Safari (which I also maximize screen), with the dock disappearing as it should.

I don't know if anyone else has encountered this issue though (as everything works fine on my older Mac...) Hopefully this can be resolved soon? I hope this makes sense :")

For years, I have had the Bookmark Toolbar always show on my initial page and all tabs at the top of page. Something happened and now it does not. I have tried resetting per instructions and it will show on my current page but then not show up my new tab and will disappear from the initial page. I tried a refresh to correct and that did not work either. I was able to get them to show on the left side of the screen but I much prefer them at the top and want to get back to that layout.

I don't have the words to describe what's happening here. Please see screenshot. Frequently when using Firefox- since the latest update, it's up-to-date on up-to-date Macbook Sonoma 14.4- this starts happening, when I move around my cursor, the images get all funky, it seems to be pulling in visual information from multiple tabs. Restarting the app clears it out, until the next time it happens. Any thoughts on this?

Right after a Firefox update on or about 3-8-24, when I click on the network icon on the Windows 11 system tray, the network icon in the Quick Access area is no longer there. But when you click on the network icon you see some soft of video player controls if you have a video open in Firefox, and the network icon is gone! I need to have the network icon restored. And BTW, when clicking the pencil icon to add something to the quick access, there is NO network icon to be added! Its not there, in fact, the "add" is greyed out, and the option for adding "network" no longer exists. I don't really like the video player controls that show up like in the photo, and would like to be able to make that go away.

I run Firefox on a Dell laptop running Windows 10 Pro. I had to rebuild my system because of problems I couldn't solve. I've reinstalled Firefox and copied a profile I had saved in the cloud. When I click the extensions button ("puzzle piece") I do not see the extension list, only the add-ons page. do I have to uninstall and reinstall each extension to get it into the panel so I can pin some of them to the toolbar?

I set up my Home Page with 3 rows of my own shortcuts (sponsored shortcuts are turned off). All were pinned and alphabetized. If I go a couple hours without using Firefox, about half of my shortcuts will have been replaced with others. None will be in order. Have tried setting up the Shortcuts several times, is really getting exasperating. Is there a simple fix in about:config?

On a fresh install of openSUSE Tumbleweed 20240313 with KDE Plasma 6 (Wayland), the X button in the upper right corner of the screen does not allow you to click it when the pointer is in the upper right corner of the screen. Default behavior in KDE is to just let you close the window anyways even though the button itself is circular.

Is there any way to change this?
