Saving a Bookmark to a folder does not appear to work any longer this has been the case for several months. If you try to save a bookmark to a folder, then check the folder, the bookmark is not there, if you do a search the bookmark is found but its location cannot be seen, the only way to get around this problem is to save the bookmark to the bottom of the general list and then drag it to the folder you want. Would be good if this could be fixed.

Ever since I started using Firefox I've found that if I Google a subject and then try to open a resulting listesd website which is marked as an "Ad", it won't open and I get a "Server Not Found" message. I like Firefox a lot but this is plain irritating!

On the Help pages I found a suggestion about changing the proxy setting to "No Proxy" (I'm just an individual at home, running through a standard BT hub), but that doesn't seem to have made any difference.

Any suggestions would be gratefully received!

I have a private message board and I am having problems with the messages not marking as read. Sometimes they mark and sometimes they don't. If they do not mark I refresh the page and they show as marked. I thought it might be just one computer but all three are doing the same thing. I started with the 77 version of Firefox. I replaced my router because of other problems. I took one of my laptops completely removed Firefox by deleting everything mozilla in appdata and sub directories. I went into the registry and deleted everything mozilla. I then reinstalled Firefox, left it as a fresh install. Booted my computer in safe mode with only network. I then launched Firefox and it is still doing the same thing not marking the messages as read by changing color all the time. Like I said sometimes it does mark them and sometimes it doesn't. I am running the latest version of Firefox. Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer no problem marking as read. Does anyone have any more suggestions to try.

After hooking up four devices to sync through Firefox, I ended up with a mess and a lot of irritation which I have not recovered from. That was six months ago. What I failed to understand is that there is no control of the direction of sync. I presumed that all would sync from my primary account computer. Wrong and truly a disaster because I had spent hours organizing thousands of bookmarks. An old computer with an old bookmarks setup (very disorganized) added its confused mess back into my attempt on the new computer to finally get organized. I still have not sorted through most of the mess.

So how in the hell does Sync actually and exactly work? Is there any directional flow? Or does it just mash the shared stuff together. How can I delete any bookmark file Sync has at Firefox server with exact knowledge of what I am doing? Why is this stuff so obscure? I exactly want to know how to ensure that Sync has no cache of obsolete material and exactly, if possible, to direct the flow....should I use only share a tab? one at a time?

Thanks, Michael Mandeville, Arizona mwman@q.com

Please understand my query. I removed the Firefox completely out of my computer, went into Regedit.exe (Please don't go in it unless you have used it frequently and know the consequences) and removed it as through as possible, when I get done there was nothing left in the computer of Firefox not even a single file or a string. Then I installed again and every website works fine, but if I log into my Firefox account only after that everything disappears, then if I open a new private window everything works fine again It seems to me the problem is my account in Firefox server. But I do not have access to it. I have it on two of my cell phone and 2 other computers but this is the newer one I use the most and only on this one I have problems I am signed in all my devices and they all work fine, I already checked the computer with different Antivirus programs and have also change my router

I was working with my Internet Provider and in an attempt to solve and issue they had me delete my History, Cache, Cookies, and so on. After doing so, Firefox will no longer remember anything from my History. Every time Firefox closes it erases all of it. I have to login to my email 25 times a day now. I have changed all the settings that Help has listed and they have changed nothing. Please, Help.

I have recently been encountering issues with Twitch.tv that were not present even two and a half weeks ago. I keep getting a blacked out screen with an "error #3000" message. The only known website that seems to deal with the issue comes at the problem from the idea that people are trying to access the site via Chrome. The few options they suggested that I can apply to my machine— clearing the cache and cookies or else using CCleaner offered no help.

This is not consistent however, as some other twitch channels I go to work perfectly fine. It's worth noting that I was not encountering this issues with Firefox version 78.0.2, while I am currently on version 79.0, and this is the version that has brought this issue up. Should I try downgrading to the previous version and see if that helps, or what?

Does anyone else get this error message, and if you do, what did you do to fix it? The few things I could try, I already have, save for turning off the hardware acceleration, which I don't think is the problem, as if it were, I would have seen it weeks ago when this wasn't an issue.

I am including a screenshot of what I'm seeing.

My system is Firefox 79, Windows 10. Lazy loading is supported in Firefox since version 75: https://caniuse.com/#feat=loading-lazy-attr

I found that this works on Firefox for lazy loading of images. However, YouTube embedding in an iframe, it doesn't work. I ensured that the video is long way below the fold. Even then, the iframe is loaded upfront. This is the HTML for the iframe:

<iframe loading="lazy" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/iQBat7e0MQs" allowfullscreen="" width="480" height="270"></iframe>

On Chrome, lazy loading works as expected for the same web page (on my localhost).
