Greetings from Earth. My Firefox bookmarks in my Dell PC are suddenly altered in that many of the contents of folders (that had been alphabetized by me as I added to them over the years) are now mixed and random-- no longer in A-Z order. I woke up the other day to find this surprise. Is there a simple way to rectify this problem that doesn't involve me rearranging them one by one to their former order, or will I just have to live with the bookmarks in this new way? I did nothing unusual on the PC or with bookmarks to cause any changes. Thanks in advance for help and/or advice; it's appreciated. A fussy Gen X guy is obliged.

In SETTINGS I do not see another "option" of this "dumb" feature like Firefox has used for decades? I PREFER the SEARCH BAR as it will KEEP my SEARCH 'script' if I get a search not wanted. Then all I have to do is "modify" the SEARCH TEXT and search again. I am trying to get use to typing my SEARCH in the SEARCH bar on the FIREFOX Main screen but is getting hard to break DECADE old habits since I started using FIREFOX after I gave up on 'NAVIGATOR' a 'few' decades back? OK, I am 'ole fashioned' sometimes... I never believed in "change" for "change SAKE". AM I missing something in SETTINGS that SHOULD ALLOW us to choose the NEW WAY OR THE OLD WAY for at least awhile. I would have these issues IF I knew the way to fond, use an older PROFILE as I would still be using versions in the early 80's.

search bar vs address bar

Until recently, the search bar that sits under the Firefox logo on my home page was a search bar - it provided nothing but suggestions / auto-completions as I typed, and the text appeared in and below the box.

The address bar, at the top of the screen, was where I typed addresses. They both did their respective jobs well.

Starting a few days ago, attempts to type in the search bar (under the Firefox logo) resulted in a mixture of suggestions, addresses, sites visited etc, appearing in and below the address bar (at the top of the page).

Is it no longer possible to have separate search and address bars? I've poked around in settings and while I've at least managed to turn the address bar into something like a search bar (no addresses or history), this seems like a second best solution - it was useful as an address bar, just as the search bar was useful as a search bar. I've lost some functionality.

Is the search bar on the home page now just a decoration? Can it be made to function again as such - offering nothing but suggestions/auto-completions? Is this an update, or a glitch in my install?

Hi, I have never used firefox console, and definitely don't want it to be opening automatically on firefox (89. windows 10 64 bit) start. How do I stop it from doing this please? Behaviour started a few months ago. Behaviour doesn't happen in troubleshoot mode, but still happens in normal mode with privacy extensions disabled.

Hoping screenshot not necessary, as when I tried to attach to this post, error message popped up from Firefox saying it was too big.

Thank you

The 89.0 (64-bit) update to Firefox is a joke! When are fixes coming or is there any way for me to return to the previous edition. I cannot get used to this charade.

I think that Firefox is by far the most superior browser and this update is just so not Firefox. It hurts. It hurts really bad!

After going nuts trying to figure out why my website no longer works properly on Firefox, it was determined by my WebHost, HostGator, that there is an issue with only Firefox. The website works with Edge, Chrome, Safari, etc., just not Firefox.

I wasted many hours trying to adjust WordPress, WooCommerce, etc.

What's wrong:

1 The menus no longer pull down, and cannot be accessed. 2 Products no longer show the long description, and there is now a description tab and an additional information tab, which do not do anything when pressed, and cannot be programmed (the tab or a new page).

I would hate to loose the ability to run my website using Firefox, and it affects my customers as well.

Any ideas as to how to fix this?

Thanks so much, Scott

I have a problematic site where I have to delete all cookies before I can get access. I have tried setting the "Cookie and Site Data" Exceptions to both "Allow for Session" and "Block". Despite these settings, Firefox continues to store cookies from this site....therefore, I still have to clear them from the "manage data" area before I can gain access.

Is this a Firefox quirk? I am at a loss.

Thanks.

Many directions to fix problems direct you to click the 3 bars in the upper corner and select "options". This is not there, there is nothing to select called "options". Why isn't it there? Is it called something else now? Is it somewhere else now? Is it something I need to add to that menu? Please help, it's making it impossible to enact fixes, since I can't complete the very first step!

Since the most recent update to 89.0 opening pdfs in the browser, some websites and all log-in areas are using a super bold, unreadable font. PDFs also print out with this font. I tried changing the font manually, and both checking and unchecking the "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" box, but it doesn't help. I have no plugins installled This is the Facebook log in for example. The font is so poor you can't tell the 'i' from a lower case 'l'. The pdf sample is from opening it in the browser. If I download it instead, it opens in a normal, readable font. How can I fix this?

After auto update to FF 89.0, access to long-time Fidelity account is intermittently blocked as a security warning, or causes DSL line to drop at submission of account security code, or displays account entry page as plain text, not std HTML formatting, or most often results in a technical error page saying try again later. MS EDGE works fine, no issues. This is the only webpage this occurs on. Fidelity has no FF reported issues on their end nor does my IP supplier. Using desktop PC, running Win10/64-bit, DSL line @ ~ 2.3 Mbps. Using the "Light Theme" which was auto set with 89.0. This plus the new bastardized menus will push me to drop FF since I can't afford endless hours to fix basic functionality with ea update.

Hello,

my problem is even if I saved my password, firefox doesn't autofill it and just prompt "show the saved IDs". It's only when I click on the message and it opens Firefox lockwise that the password I am waiting for appears on the website. It is quite convenient and makes me lose time as it happens on a website I use for work.

Thanks a lot for your help and sorry for the poor english
