Instead of having my bookmarks under the toolbar, it's along the left side. I have many things in chrome.css, like one that gives me 4 rows of bookmarks, but on the side, it's only one. If I click on one of the ones I can see, it does go to the website, as I can see the correct url in the address bar. However, everything is blank. Even about:config is blank. Safe mode works, but of course doesn't give me my bookmarks or anything else. The extensions that Safe Mode says are disabled are: Amazon Assistant for Firefox, Dashlane, and New Tab Override. Do you need the things from chrome.css to help me troubleshoot? I can't keep using Safe Mode, don't care for Chrome, and refuse to use IE.

When I maximise the firefox browser the edges of the window have a weird white edge to them and it's really annoying. It only started this morning and I haven't updated my laptop recently so I'm not sure what the issue is. I've checked other programs and browsers and only Firefox has this problem.

Hi, are the files key4.dab logins.json

generated on a 64bit Firefox compatible with a 32 bit version?

The reason is that in the 32 bit one all my "user & PW" data .... abruptly vanished. So I wished to use the existing data to restore the configuration.

Both PC are running LINUX: - 64bit has Linux Mint - 32 bit has Kubuntu

Thanks in advance for your time! Alberto

I'm trying to video call on FB Messenger. It keeps error messaging me, telling me to allow microphone access. Tried that through the Firefox menu preferences - can't make that work. Tried it through the apple preferences/Privacy & Security - can't make that work. Completely stymied. Nothing online seems to specifically address the issue. Any thoughts welcome.

Hello, need a little help with a little problem. I am using Firefox 74

I used to add bookmarks by going to the bookmarks menu and selecting "Bookmark this page" When I did that, a popup box would appear that would let me decide where to put the bookmark, change the name etc.

Something has happened, and now when I select "Bookmark this page" it does not put up the dialog box. It shows a little animation with a star crashing into something that might be a pile of books.

I'm an old guy. I liked the way that it used to work. I don't need a crashing star.

How can I restore the old behavior that pops up a dialog box?

After updates by both W10 and FF, the bookmarks icons and fonts are too small for my older eyes. I checked FAQ, trying a couple I thought were relevant. I used to use an app for this, but it no longer works due to new FF software. I got options to try Infinity and VeeHD, neither of which seem to solve my problem.

NOTE: I am aware of the Zoom feature for a webpage itself, I am not asking about that. I simply want to have my bookmark toolbar FONTS and ICONS larger.

This has been frustrating. Perhaps including an EASY way to do this for future updates, or an app suggestion that would solve the problem. Thx for your consideration and (hopefully) help.

I'm use to have many Firefox windows open at the same time (usually 5-8), each one with dozen of tabs and it's difficult remember in which window a certain tab is open. So I think it would be useful hava a command to list all windows and tab open and be able to save this list in another program (text, spreadsheet, presentation or whatever. I searched in Firefox help, but find nothing: is my fault (so, please, suggest ho to do it) or a lack of feature? Many thanks

I had 2 windows open in my browser. Only one with tabs I wanted to save (I was keeping them open, probably a bad habit, I know). I closed the "good" window first, and the "bad" windows second. Firefox only saved the tabs from the bad window, but these are the tabs I am not interested in. In the past sessions Firefox saved all the tabs from the first window. But this time, having a second one open, I lost them all. Is there a way to retrieve them all? I appreciate any help. Thanks
