Hello. It seems that Google has created a way of "dealing with" Firefox's automatic removal of the page seeking one's acceptance or rejection of cookies. Each time I refresh the page, the accept/reject cookies pop-up briefly flicks on-screen but then disappears and one is back at the consent page:

https://consent.google.com/m?continue=https://maps.google.com/maps&gl=GB&m=0&pc=m&uxe=eomtm&cm=2&hl=en&src=1

So as things are, I cannot access the consent page to either reject or accept the cookies, and therefore I cannot get past the consent page and into googlemaps.

Google may be aware of Firefox's way of "dealing with" the consent page and has found a way of making it impossible for people to proceed to use of the googlemaps website.

Hi, I'm a Firefox user since around 2004. Whenever I used FF i always opened multiple windows of FF. At some point Mozilla came out with Tabs. I don't use them and as a matter of fact I use the option under settings to open links in a new window (not tabs). Always have, Why? Habit I guess from the times I first starting using FF. I seriously don't use Tabs. I would like to Remove the Tab Bar from FF because of this reason and it frees up a lot of visual space on my browser. I've spent hours reading/searching/trying on "how" to remove or at least hide the Tab Bar. Waste of time so far, so I decided to Post the Question.

How Do I Hide or Remove the Tab Bar in FireFox?

Thanks For Everyone's Help in Advance:-)

One of my machines has Windows 7 installed and uses Chrome browser. Recently I had a need to install Firefox. As soon as the install completed, all of my existing Google related shortcut icons changed to some generic type. No matter what I did I could not change the shortcut icons back to their original. I uninstalled Firefox and they all came back. Any suggestions?

At some point in the winter of '21 I created a folder of bookmarks that was saved in the 'bookmarks menu'. At a later date, hard to say when but probably '22 or early '23 I deleted these bookmarks. I now desperately need to recover them.

The oldest auto-backup from 'Manage Bookmarks' -> 'Import and Backup' -> Restore is dated mid '23 and does not contain the deleted bookmarks.

Is there any hope of recovering them? For example via the Recycle Bin or by using a data recovery tool? Or will they have been overwritten?

Refresh Screen nags are beginning to take over my web-surfing experience. On InstaCart I get hundreds of Screen Refresh nags -- one right after the other. Blowing Screen Refresh nags out of the water won't hurt my feelings... InstaCart will generate thousands of Refresh Screen nags -- until I nuke it.

To log into my mortgage lender's site I have to enter my email address. Beside this field is the Facebook container symbol; mousing over it warns me that if I enter my email here, Facebook can track me. Mortgage Lender used to allow me to log in with a user name, but now requires my email address, which apparently gives Facebook access to track me. Tried speaking to the lender about this, but they simply assert there are no Facebook trackers on their site. So, any workaround for this besides just doing all my business with them by phone from now on?

When a new bookmark is created it goes to the end of the bookmark listing in the left panel. How can I force Firefox to automatically put each newly created bookmark in the correct alphabetic position in the left panel Bookmarks panel? I DO NOT want to alphabetize the entire panel, I just want each newly created bookmark to go where is alphabetically belongs. I do not use folders so have one long list for bookmarks menu. thank Bob

i found an old iphone last night. I don't know how to find the owner. I looked up a couple things on the internet and one i thought sounded right was, one to open the phone when the phone is locked. so i thought i downloaded a program to unlock ios. after downloading that program it seemed like they told me i had to make a 7 zip program to open that file. anyhow, i thought i did that too. but i can't figure out if anything downloaded successful or not i can't make anything work i am on a very old computer, i don't know what i needed windows or mac 64 or 32 my system may be too old ?
