I recently switched to Firefox from Chrome and I find very hard to access my bookmarks giving the fact that in Chrome I had the possibility so synchronize my bookmarks on a new device including their icons on the toolbar. All my bookmarks are arranged by icons to save space on the bookmark toolbar so in Firefox after synchronizations I only see that globe or whatever it is as a icon for bookmarks and to get the icons I have to access all the links.

At work I have multiple larger screens than the laptop screen itself.

The only way to get rid of it is to close all open tabs.

I am doing school online at home. I go to my login page, sign in, and get sent to the home page. From the home page i have to scroll to the bottom, click a link, click a link on that next page, then access my assignments. Is there a way to login and then create a redirect from the page it sends me to to my assignments page?

No CSD (Linux client side window decorations) under Openbox, Arch Linux

https://imgur.com/bcMUplV http://bayimg.com/GaNmcaaGb

I'm using Firefox under the Openbox WM on Arch Linux and I cannot enable CSD. As seen in the picture, the "Title Bar" customize option changes actually nothing. The WM's default window decoration remains visible and there's no change at all. This issue applies to all versions of Firefox since CSD was introduced, i.e. since v 60 (as far as I can recollect) till now. Is that a bug or am I simply missing something important? I've tried creating a completely new Firefox profile - same thing then. Other apps (like Evince or Google Chrome) show client side decorations properly in my case. Any kind of help will be highly appreciated, thanks in advance.

Recently, I downloaded & installed FIREFOX 62. Ever I have started using it, I have a problem which i do NOT encounter with ANY OTHER browser.

FIREFOX turns some on setting of my TWITTER & does NOT allow me to change them as per the attached screen shot. My Safety settings: - Hide sensitive content - Remove blocked and muted accounts Are clicked (pre-selected) & dimmed, I can not uncheck them, while I open CHROME & find them free to check or uncheck.

As a result of this problem, I can NOT see any video posted in Twitter using FIREFOX.

Yesterday, I posted this same problem here & got a reply asking me to clear the Cache, I did that & the problem disappeared, BUT it APPEARED AGAIN & now can NOT solve it at all, no matter what Cache I clear or anything else. I uninstalled FIREFOX & re INSTALLED it again , BUT THE PROBLEM remains unsolved.

Does anybody have any recommendations? Previously, I used earlier versions of FIREFOX and NEVER had this problem.

WHAT DOES FIREFOX PRE_SELECT MY TWITTER SAFETY SETTING & PREVENT ME FROM CHANGING THEM.

I attach 2 screenshots, one showing the settings (Pre-Selected) by FIREFOX that can NOT be changed & the second showing how videos appear in TWITTER using FIREFOX 62. I CAN NOT SEE ANY

Thank you & hope I can get some help

Since updating to FF 62.0.2 when I try to use the bookmarks option "bookmark this site", when I click on the drop down menu option for me to choose the "folder" I want to save the new site too it doesn't show me my main book mark category. It's the one that I imported from "NetScape" many years ago when it was going away and I changed to FF. Everything was working as normal for many years until I updated to the latest release. I had waited to do that update due to the bookmark "description" field being removed but finally decided to just back up my bookmarks to maintain access to that field and move to release 62.0.2.

I have lots of saved bookmarks and passwords in my old sync address and it won't let me upload them to my new address because it wants me to use old e-mail address to berify ownership and my old address was discontinued when I changed servers. It wouldn't let me just transfer e-mail sync. I had a crash and reloaded windows 7 and downloaded firefox but it wouldn't let me sync because I couldn't confirm my old e-mail address with old server, as that address was discontinued.

If you are trying to switch from one room to another and get this message, then your browser might not have released the connection to the previous room yet - click here to try again

If you keep getting this message then your browser haven't released the connection to the room you were in. This is known to be an issue with newer versions of some browsers, eg. Internet Explorer (it not closing down processes running Flash correctly). In that case you might need to end/kill the running browser process manually or restart your computer.

Another solution can be for you to try using another browser, eg. Firefox or Chrome (remember to install/allow Flash to run then)

EDIT: Okay, seems I didn't quite look thoroughly enough before asking this, apparently an add-on for "Ninja Download Manager" was causing problems. Please disregard this question, I apologize for wasting anyone's time.

For some reason, a lot of my downloads end up with strange names and without a file extension. For example:

If I try to save a PDF file from my university with the following link. https://mylo.X.edu.au/d2l/le/content/235142/topics/files/download/2789744/DirectFileTopicDownload the file gets saved as "DirectFileTopicDownload" (that is part of the link, it has not been replaced or changed like the X has).

Alternatively, when I try to download executable files, often I end up with a string of numbers and letters which Im fairly certain is related to the files in question, though I can't tell how ( a quick google search of the string tends to lead to a related site etc.). FOr example, when trying to download a companion app for the firefox extention VideoDownloadHelper, i get the extension-less file "c036135a-7faa-11e8-87ad-cc9be00dd6d8"

I would appreciate any help in this matter, bearing in mind I have reinstalled Firefox once already.
