I liked being able to hover over "Bookmarks" to see a list of websites. I do not like having to look at a separate window, and I do not care about whatever new features this comes with. How do I get Bookmarks to work the way they used to?

I have a HP laptop 15-BA009DX with a Firefox problem. I noticed that the newest Firefox release takes one of my backed up bookmarks that I restore - causing the folders to "leak" the bookmarks out of the folders. The result is a list at the bottom of the bookmarks menu containing several hundred bookmarks. It seems to only happen when you restore a bookmark .json file. I Loaded the Extended Support Release (ESR) version on my laptop and discoveredf that it doesn't have this bookmark "leak" problem.

I tried to install the ESR version on my other (standby) laptop in place of the "regular" version to fix this bookmark folder "leaking" but the ESR version appears to not completely install. I can't go to any web page and I can't access the Tools > Options page. When I select the "Options" choice, it doesn't do anything. I have tried to uninstall and reinstall both the ESR version and the "regular" version several times with the same result. I frequently get an install error message similar to "VCRuntime140_1.dll not found - Reinstall can fix this".

I am familiar with computers but I'm not a techie. Installing this should be a no-brainer, but I am baffled why it won't correctly install and work.

Any Idea what is causing this problem? Thanks for your kind reply.

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to you because of Mozilla's new add-on policies. I am especially focusing on the point: Encryption – standard, in-browser HTTPS – is now always required when communicating with remote services. In the past, this was only required when transporting sensitive information. While I am supporting this new rule, I would like to ask, if there is any chance to be excluded from this policy. I am the developer of Domain Country, an add-on which allows you to retrieve the geographical information (and other data) about a given domain. To retrieve this data, Domain Country uses the API https://ip-api.com/. Unfortunately, this API requires a paid key to be accessible via HTTPS (Example URL: https://ip-api.com/json/mozilla.org). While I am very frustrated about this solution, I still decided to implement it, because I could not find another free API service. To still ensure that users are protected against Man-in-the-middle-attacks, I decided to manually validate the data after it is received (the code for Domain Country is open-source. This is the line, I'm talking about: https://github.com/Myzel394/domaincountry/blob/master/src/apis/fetchDomainInformation.ts#L94). Domain Country will also be continuously updated to ensure the user's safety. As a student with only low income it is also impossible for me to pay for https://ip-api.com/.


I hope you understand my problems and consider excluding Domain Country from the new add-on policy.

Hello! Please give me instructions on how to permanently block / stop FireFox's "Welcome Pages".

I remember asking FireFox to block trackers and suppress as much advertising as possible. I never thought that FireFox would think that it was OK for FireFox itself to track me and send me unsolicited advertising.

I just received a FireFox "Welcome Page". This is something I don't recall ever seeing before. On the "Welcome" page I found a link that informed me that "Welcome Pages" are sent when people reach certain "Milestones". FireFox had to be tracking me in order to decide I'd reached a "Milestone" - although I have no idea what Milestone I reached.

On top of that, the so-called "Welcome Page" is actually an ADVERTISEMENT for an UNSOLICITED product offer to pay FireFox for something. What kind of "welcome" is that ?

All I can say is I'm very shocked that FireFox has taken advantage of making me feel I'm being protected from tracking and ads, which the browser seems to do quite well, EXCEPT for FireFox itself. That is shameful in my opinion.

Thank you in advance for your assistance helping me to go the extra mile and plug the tracking and ad leak I was not aware that I've had all of this time.

The browsing history works fine, with one exception: once you click on an older link to reuse it or even to simply look at it, the older link is removed an replaced by the new one.

This is very disturbing whenever you need the older link's timestamp as a proof you accessed the corresponding page at a given time.

Is there any possibility for the user to avoid this behavior?

Why add-ons won't start with Firefox? Every time I need to manually disable and enable extensions Privacy Badger, uBlockOrigin (Privacy out of the box extensions) for it to be working, that is, they don't work upon start up. I have deleted the .mozilla folder in my Linux machine to reset firefox and it starts with add-ons only one time; when starting a second time, add-ons don't appear in the toolbar yet they are "enabled" but not working. As previously stated, I need to enable them manually.

Hi, I'm wanting to upgrade my Mac OS. Will all my Firefox data be retained including my saved sessions? Will opening Firefox have everything just like it was before the update, so that the last current session will open up with all the previously open tabs?
