How can I import or to which folder do I import bookmarks so they show up in the shortcut rows in a new tab? I'm trying to get away from Opera but I love the shortcuts displayed on a new tab. I tried copying all the appropriate bookmarks to the bookmarks menu folder and why they are in the folder they dont display in the shortcuts.

The imagine shows where I want to import to.

Hi,

Firefox = 121.0.1 64-bit Win10 = 22H2 (19045.3930)

Not for the first time but the 3rd in the past few months I was closing a tab in Firefox and my PC immediately reset. No warning, just straight to blank screen as soon as I closed a tab (I had 4 open). Next thing I knew it was going through re-boot. No crash report in Firefox.

This last time I had Facebook open, I had a video in Facebook popped-out, it had finished playing and I went to close the FB tab.

Ian.

MSN is my home page. When I open Firefox, it goes to MSN as it should, but then the right and left arrow keys to view the articles do not work. The arrows will not go to the next page, nor go back to the previous page. Is this a MSN or Firefox problem?

Hi everyone,

My computer crashed while updating from Windows 10 to Windows 11. Unfortunately, I had someone look at it and he formatted my hard drive and only did a partial backup of files. I thought my Mozilla Firefox account was syncing, but it seems like it did not happen in a while. Does anyone know if there's any hope in recovering the lost tabs and bookmarks? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks,

Kenan

I really appreciate the container tab option for my browsing, as it affords me more privacy and I am a stickler about my privacy. However- I have been having an issue with links that I am attempting to open in a specific container that will load, and then immediately reload into the tab without a container. This has happened several times. The most recent example is that I clicked on a link from FB, a site I tend to avoid, and specified that I want it opened in a FB tab, as I don't trust them not to track me beyond that. However, the link loaded in the FB tab and immediately again with no container whatsoever. There was no request, no warning that I had set up the "multi-account container" and did I want to use it in the designated container... nothing. This has happened with links before as well.

Hello, I have a few questions I hope you can answer As of January 2024, I personally have a W11 PC with the newest Fire Fox version. I do lots of important research on FF,

1) I see my regular TABS I refer to as my favorites, so I can speed up my research, the usual (Google search, Maps, YouTube etc)

2) NOW I realize I have to SEPARATE, my MANY favorites in different work files or dossiers, IS there ANY WAY, I can have complete separate ROW of my favorites for ex: a row of ONLY FINANCE, and a second row I can call up when ''''I NEED TO'''', when I do research ex: on ALL A.I., and a 3rd row on a different topic ? etc

3) WITHOUT seeing all 3 rows at once that clutters up my screen for nothing, ROWS I want to CALL UP when I need to !

If not, have some one program it as everyone in my circle, including myself is demanding this, times are changing as more and more people work from home and want to separate personal and work files

Hi, As far as I know, Firefox hasn't recently updated but somehow my address bar is now below the tabs. I have searched everywhere and can't find a solution. Searching shows that this has been happening repeatedly for years with people having to go as far as adding code to configure it. It has never happened to me until the change appeared randomly today. Am I missing something, or has the option completely (and pointlessly) disappeared? Please point me in the right direction to restore the position of the address bar. Thanks.

Firefox has started hiding all tabs in a window except the active tab. This has happened in two different windows. I have no idea how to hide tabs and don't want to. How can I unhide the tabs. When I try to do it one by one, the first tab rehides when the 2nd one appears. Can I unhide multiple tabs at once? Do I have to unhide them one by one, and if so how? How do I stop Firefox from hiding tabs?

I recently downloaded Tree Style Tab. I still see the horizontal tab bar. I would like to hide it. However, I have tried just about every answer I could find on Mozilla, Google, Reddit, and any other websites that offered solutions. Nothing has worked since the last update. This includes the "type in about:config, toggle to true, open profile folder, create userChrome.css file, copy and paste xyz code, save, and restart Firefox" route.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
