My Firefox web browser is configured to request pages in European Portuguese, namely by sending the HTTP Header: Accept-Language: pt,en;q=0.7,en-US;q=0.3 However, whenever accessing Mozilla web sites, the web server always choose to redirect to the page with the content in Brazilian Portuguese as can be confirmed looking also to the response HTTP header: localization: /pt-BR/ There are two errors, first the browser do not allow to add the Accept-Language as pt-PT so the server would make the correct judgement of the localization as a workaround since now W3C decided that pt stands for Portuguese from Portugal and all the other Portuguese speaking countries will have to add the capital letters of the respective country, meaning a Brazilian user should and currently can add the language Brazilian Portuguese as preferred language. Please kindly correct both the browser and the web site so the pages in European Portuguese can be seen at all.

Today my Firefox upgraded to 89.0. The new update has resized the toolbar etc at the top of my browser. Because it's now bigger my theme no longer fits, so I have an ugly blank bar that goes right across my bookmarks. The problem seems to be that the tabs area has increased in size. How can I resize this so that my theme fits again?

Many thanks.

Every time I see New Improved Firefox I groan as it means that what I am used to no longer functions.

Case in point click on FF open page and I have 3 search bars and trying to use just the Firefox will not allow any type to show up just in top two.

1. How do I eliminate the top two?? 2. How when typing can I get it to show up in the Firefox address bar as it has done for the past 12 years???????

The old saying if it aint broke do not fix it comes to mind!! Robin S.

The search engines I've added do not appear in the list after clicking the green + sign in the search box and they do not appear in the list in the options either. I used the "add more search engines" found in the bottom of the search engines list to find the missing engines and add them again, but when I find the engine I want to add there is only the "remove" button. So this tells me the missing engines in the list are still there but not accessible. I tried removing the added search engine and then adding it again but this did not make them appear in the search engine list. Everything was working fine until getting the last update before Firefox 89. Is there a way to fix this???

Unable to Restore Bookmarks After Refresh [...solved?]

tl;dr - Refreshed Firefox, most of my profile has restored normally, but not Bookmarks (or Browsing History). I cannot restore Bookmarks from the .json backups, and I do not have an HTML backup.

Firefox would not load any pages this morning, even after updating to most recent version (89) and restarting the app then the entire computer, so I refreshed Firefox. Good news is, pages load now! Bad news is my bookmarks all disappeared, and they were still gone even after I made the Bookmarks Toolbar visible. The Import Bookmarks button only gives me the option to import from Internet Explorer or Chrome, but not from previous version of Firefox.

I went to Manage Bookmarks, and the Import and Backup seems to have some recent bookmark back-ups, giving me options for back-ups from today (Monday) then Saturday (last new bookmark), etc. But when I try to import bookmarks this way, it says Unable to process the backup file. My Firefox profile has backups, but only as .json files, no HTML bookmark files, which is the only other importing option. The rest of my profile seems to have imported fine - when I go to my inboxes or regularly visited websites, I'm still logged in.

Strangely, Firefox also seems to have forgotten my browsing history. In the URL bar, it'll show my search history, but not my visited pages, which makes the lack of Bookmarks even more aggravating and harder to deal with.

Edit: I restarted the app again and this time, my bookmarks were in place, and my browsing history is back when I type into the URL bar. I do not know how to mark this question as solved or delete this question.

The above Malware has attached itself to my browser and is blocking many of my searches! Times out and falure to connect messages keep popping up on my screen :(

How do I get reliable advice on how to remove it?

I do not wish to purchase additonal software I alread use Malwarebytes, Spybot S&D, ccleaner and laso the Firfox promise of 100% security :(

None of these are addressing my problem as they cannot find it which really puzzles me!!

It is another Microsoft hidden gem as this has only started since a recent update to my Win 10

I unblocked it in the settings - cookies - but it still keeps me from opening it. this is the message on the screen "Cookies required to use Firefox To continue signing in using Firefox, allow cookies to be stored on this device. You might see this screen more than once."

So I go to Bing but I would prefer to use firefox. Why is it so hard to release a website??? What is the problem? Edith

Hi, This PC I am working on now is always seen as a Win 8 machine when I am using Firefox. The machine is a Win 10 unit. All my other units are read as the correct operating system, and as this is the only one that runs Firefox, I believe I should discuss it with you. The problem only is acute when using this to access secure sites or to buy online. The machine is seen as suspect at all times. Also I struggle with Windows Updates deleting and damaging the operations at every tiny "update." I never use Edge. When they make me helpless, I switch to a Mac. Other than placing updates on delay, which works now and then, is there any other way to cut off microsoft? Gregory Burke ...
