why does firefox require a separate folder from it web link? This is maddening; I need to save many shortcuts for medical research. The ability of saving numerous single files in a folder is absolutely essential to my work. I find firefox terribly inefficient and useless without a solution to this situation...

I would appreciate specific simple answers to this issue. Saving to a hidden sidebar is not the answer and not a helpful solution. Sorry to be so critical; however, 'firefox seems to be so preoccupied with constant minor "tinkering" updates and not address key issues such as this...rjk

Error message I get starting today:

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at www.google.com.

If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

   Try again later.
   Check your network connection.
   If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

I have changed nothing since yesterday and today to include any type of add-ons

URI paths can be used to access internal resources in Firefox.

For example, the URI: chrome://mozapps/skin/extensions/rating-won.png relates to the real physical folder path of: ... /omni.ja!/chrome/toolkit/skin/classic/mozapps/extensions/rating-won.png

What is the chrome:// URI for the this particular icon?: ... /omni.ja!/contentaccessible/html/folder.png

It is higher up the tree than the usual top-level items, and I can't figure out the correct chrome URI for it.

So my Firefox Developer edition just got updated to the version 74.0b2 and I got this brand new address/search bar. One of the things that it used to have before it had been updated was a simple arrow-down button that, when clicked, showed the most visited sites. Now, after the update, this button is gone (pic related). This makes my experience with Firefox *extremely* worse, because now I don't have a quick access to open one of my most visited sites inside the current tab without starting typing their addresses. Is there any option to bring that feature back? Is removal of this button an already-made design choice for Firefox that will stay with us for the next versions?

I'm fed up with the lack of support from Firefox. This issue has been going on for three weeks. The last Firefox update crashed TWICE! When I opened a Google/Firefox, An Update window popped up. Since I normally let them download or whatever they do, I wasn't concerned. Then it showed an "Error". I didn't see an "Error Code Number or Name" as it disappeared quickly. I tried to open Firefox/Google. To my surprise, all I got was a Blank Window. I tried clicking on the "Home Icon". Nothing changed. I tried my Bookmarks. No affect. I WAS Signed In. I tried finding the Fictional "Firefox Support". I got nowhere. I would've Googled the issue, but I couldn't even use that. Nothing Worked. I finely decided to download a NEW Firefox/Google. Once I did, it worked fine all day. The next day, I opened the newly Downloaded one. Again I was greeted by the Firefox "Update" It started, then showed an Error. Again, I tried to open Firefox/Google. I got the same blank page as before. I decided to Remove, ALL Firefox/Google. from my Computer. Then I download another New Firefox. I made ONE change. I stopped Firefox from Updating Automatically. Day three, I opened Firefox, I opened normally... Almost. Now I have the SAME Firefox Update waiting. If I let it Download, it may Crash again. I lost ALL of my Bookmarks too. I went to the Recommended Firefox Site to retrieve them... It was a LIE! Now I have the SAME Firefox Update waiting. I have NEVER missed an Update Let me guess what Firefox is going to say. That is IF they reply at all; No one else reported this issue. ( And I have Ocean front property in Arizona). Make sure your operating system is up to date. (I must be too stupid to keep my system up and maintain this Machine). I should upgrade to the (The Digital Pile of...... that goes by the name) Windows 10, and (The Garbage called) Google Chrome. (Why would I Downgrade to one System that didn't work when it was released, a Browser that was Garbage when it was offered the first time (In 2008), and they WON'T Fix? I'd be better off taking a hammer to my PC. and my own head).

Just a quick note. When I first signed up for Google (Prior to the 2008 Google Chrome fiasco.) my Gmail stopped working. I could receive Mail, but I couldn't Open, Read, Delete, or anything else. This lasted for Five Years. I tried getting Help. I never got a reply from anyone. Then it started working. No explanation from Google. 

Don't bother telling me "Well... It is Free". It isn't.

1. Where is the top level "community forum"? I've spent 10 or 15 minutes wandering around a maze of Mozilla support pages without ever getting to a top level "now you can look at postings" page. So... I'm stuck posting to ask where I could've avoided posting.

2. And the actual question at last!!  ;) One of my favorite websites for news, thehill.com, places annoying ads to partially obscure the text that you're trying to read. Sometimes (25%?) of the time when you click the "X" box, they then fire off a pop up. Now, this pop a) comes from an ad pretending to be a window and b) is a result of my mouse click. So the fact that I can find the setting menu and turn on the pop up blocker is not helpful, as discussed in the appropriate support page:

Is the pop-up shown after a mouse click or a key press?

Certain events, such as clicking or pressing a key, can spawn pop-ups regardless of if the pop-up blocker is on. This is intentional, so that Firefox doesn't block pop-ups that websites need to work.

Is it a true pop-up window?

Sometimes ads are designed to look like windows, but really aren't. Firefox's pop-up blocker can't stop these ads.

So what we have at last is a second-level question: now that we know the built-in pop up blocker is not the solution, is there one out there? A plug-in perhaps? Or perhaps soneone direct me to the forums and an appropriate discussion of (presumably NOT the popup blocker) the mechanism by which this is solved?

Thanks for any courteous replies in advance, Craig

PS: Amusing contradiction here... how am I going to find the answers... hmmm....

I have applied the suggested fix for stopping the master password from popping up every time I go to a new site but it keeps happening. I open firefox with google search. I start to enter a search but the master password box pops up and I find I am typing my search query in the M P box. If I cancel it it just pops up again. This is before I even get to any site. When there it will come up again when following a link in that site and so on. This is very annoying and I am considering dumping firefox because of it. Please don't tell me to do the M password replacement procedure IT DOES NOT WORK. I have also tried editing the registry but that failed also. Robert.

Whenever I start Firefox, I get the usual "Sorry. We just need ..." and leaves me no option but to restart. I tried refreshing, removing the profile folder, the whole .mozilla folder, uninstalling and reinstalling, nothing works. If I change user on the same computer, everything works as normal. Can you suggest something?

Troubleshooting information below is copy-pasted from the faulty browser. I'm right now using a different one.

I used to use chrome://browser/content/places/places.xul to display All Bookmarks in a tab (instead of in the sidebar or a Library pop-up window).

Similarly, I also used to use chrome://browser/content/history/history-panel.xul to display my full History in a tab.

Obviously neither of these old paths work any more (since Firefox 57).

What are the new equivalents of these two paths, so that I can achieve the same effect in the current Firefox?
