76.0.1 Firefox 10.13.6 Mac os

I ran Malwarebyetes and in restarting, it took a long time, after which ALL my bookmarks were gone. I cannot use the import/restore b/c while it shows the bookmark dates, when click to restore it says "unable to import the process file" on ANY dare.

    WHen I restart computer, a red banner said toolbar and bookmarks won't display.THis can be caused by security software, read more....bla bla!
  I have sync and that doesn't restore anything-bookmarks or toolbar!!!

I called Apple and they said it was b/c they wanted me to upgrad os system to Catalina, which I am not willling to do yet!!

I also have an external hard drive and iCloud/time machine backups, but I can't get those to be accepted into the Firefox sidebar and toolbar--they just show up as quick view documents!!

Why the heck is there no phone support?!?!? Help!?!!

My eyesight is limited. Unfortunately, I am unable to determine where in the toolbar of the library window the button for exporting bookmarks to an html file can be found. The attached image provides an idea of what I am looking at.

IMAGE: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-05-18-05-49-03-6c245b.png

The reason I am looking in the toolbar of the library window is the Firefox documentation for version 76 on a mac corresponds to the Firefox version I have and the computer I am running it on states:

From the toolbar on the Library window, click BUTTON ICON (PLEASE REFER TO ATTACHED SKETCH) Import and Backup and choose Export Bookmarks to HTML...

I looked across the toolbar, then the entire Window marked "Library". I wrote a program to search the Library window for an image that could conceivably be the button indicated in the documentation. Sadly, the results of these efforts is I am here requesting assistance. It is not that I do not love each and every one of you, but my preference is not to have to take the time for putting together a question to post here. It does not take long, but when we live at internet speed, every microsecond counts, I know you agree with this very important principle, particularly in light of the visit currently taking place where Covid and his entourage have all of us ridiculously locked up. We have flattened the curve and also found out the numbers Fauci and Birx showed the President to justify this lockdown have been proven, not correct, more like wildly wrong. So while we wait for the lockdown to be cancelled, my preference due to how my parents raised me is to be able to find the button described in the documentaiton, but NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, button not there... unless maybe you can see it and I am missing it.. My hopes is you will refer to the image at this link in order to enhance the likelihood of success in my quest of the moment, i.e., making my quesiton understandable to anyone who might be interested or/and able to persist in pointing out the location of the great button of the bookmark export.

https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-05-18-05-49-03-6c245b.png


Any assistance you can provide would be much appreciated.

Thank you.

Hello,

I'm using Containers and am able to log into different gmail accounts simultaneously.

However, I'm curious as to whether or not it would be possible to link a specific account to a specific container? (e.g., my work email automatically logs into the work container, same for personal email).

I use LastPass, but would Firefox passwords work to make this process more automatic? I set "Gmail" to automatically open in my "work" container, but it takes me to the landing page and requires me to sign-in every time.

Perhaps, I should just stop clearing my history/cookies and just hide the containers instead so the data is saved and I remain logged in. I am curious if there is another solution that I'm overlooking. (I would be down to help build one, too!)

Hi Folks, I recently had to change my slow POTS broadband to LTE broadband as its quicker, however the LTE connection is quite weak (rural UK), so i get a much faster speed for streaming at night, but sometimes establishing a session or initial connection can be a little troublesome.

Im studying from home all day, every day at present. I get perhaps 40% of my new tabs / web searches sending me a "The connection has timed out" error, which i have to refresh the page to try again. Usually i can live with this, as im used to poor broadband generally.

Problem - i have a timed aptitude test tomorrow. I cant use any other network connection as im not supposed to go anywhere with coronavirus.

Can anyone help me resolve the network timeout problem? Im doing practice tests and im now getting timeouts for the server to have received my answers! I dont want to fail the test because of network timeouts.

MacOS 10.15.4 - firefox browser 76.0.1

Any help would be MASSIVELY appreciated.

its obvious that the last version of FF has setting issues. Something new in the config settings is preventing css mods from taking place. I know about the toolkit css item etc.... but there is something else that is not right. Maybe you should check with Apple before you release updates. Please find out what is is..you might have to talk to Apple and try different things on a Mac ....to confirm that css works.. I am running the latest.. I think its definitely a FF thing because it worked before and other fonts controlled by Mac are not having the problems that the bookmarks toolbar is having regarding css to enlarge the microscopic font that in on a Mac toolbar. If you cant find anything then I guess its time to go to Brave.

I have an android with Firefox installed, and a Mac where I also use Firefox. When I first installed Firefox on each, the bookmarks matched. I do the bulk of work on my laptop, but occasionally have articles I wish to bookmark on my phone. I have done a sync, but when I go to access the bookmarks on my phone, they are not updated to what is on my laptop.

When I check to see what devices I have connected through Firefox, my phone does not show up, and when I hit the link to "connect a device" all it does it take me to a link to send a text to invite my phone to install it. Which, it's already installed.

I really need these bookmarks to talk to each other properly. What am I missing?

I have installed a new computer (Mac mini). I have synchronized with old computer (imac 2011). All bookmarks transferred successfully to new computer. In the right places etc (Bookmarks menu; Bookmarks toolbar etc ). All the headings in the toolbar are correct with all the bookmarks in the dropdown menus from the toolbar as before. The problem is when I go to ADD a New bookmark the old toolbar headings don't show up in the Add Bookmarks dropdown options. How do I add a new bookmark into a list of an existing toolbar heading or existing list from the toolbar ?

I can't use YouTube with Firefox on Mac. When I open YouTube, it acts like it is stuck and keeps reloading a previous page, over and over every 3 seconds so I can't click on anything. Strange. Yes, I cleared the Cache and it didn't help. I had an old mac and had the same problem and my new mac was just purchased this year. Any ideas?

I am getting an error message at the bottom of the page when I use Firefox. It says Mozilla Firefox seems slow... to... start. And wants me to click on a button to find out how to speed it up. Is this genuine and from Mozilla or is it a scam? I know I am probably sounding a bit paranoid but I am really careful these days. Cheers, Dave

I won't check a box that opts me into observational and INTERVENTIONAL studies that I won't even be aware that I'm in since I don't look every 5 minutes at the settings and may do things like the evil sort of one fb ? did that changed your emotions.

That's a great example of why I moved to Firefox from Chrome and am wary of Facebook.

I'd be more than happy to check a box that says: "Please offer me any/all studies I may be eligible for including add'l questions to see if I'm eligible, with a reasonable stab at assent (not even informed consent). And of course whether data is anonymous (truly, as in after the study even if you wanted to you couldn't figure out which person was which), or not. Not anonymous may be fine....depending on the study. My very best, really, you're great....AND I'd be happy to discuss, advise (see below)...my 'toolbox' isn't simply biomedical. Darren


(Just me being pedantic now ignore this as you wish: And you say "study" ... I'm a researcher (sometimes)...IRB, grants, peer review, publications. Research is the "creation of generalizable knowledge." Is that what you're doing? I suspect you're doing more "quality improvement" where you figure out what works better for you...and SOMETIMES that is generalizeable knowledge (i.e., certain colors make people happy in every browser not Firefox specific), but do you publish it as peer reviewed research? Now, it's TOTALLY FINE if you don't and it's QI....but would specify that and not call it studies...call it...evaluating improvements or whatever. The use of the word 'study' and 'research' drive me nuts since when we talk to people about actual 'studies' and 'research' they conflate that with marketing evaluations of what makes us by more or which candidate we're interested in or how to sell things to us.)

Hey everybody. A few weeks ago, my audio stopped working on Google Meet out of the blue. I can still hear everyone, but they can't hear me. Meet works fine in a different browser so it's not my computer/mic. I've cleared my cookies/cache and disabled adblock, which is about where my know how ends. Any help would be much appreciated; I use Meet a lot for a side job and I haven't been able to search my way into a solution. I'm on Mac Catalina with FF 71.

Since updating to Mac OS Catalina, Firefox is displaying some text/fonts on websites as boxed question marks. I have tried some of the suggested fixes including: 1. lowering the security.sandbox.content.level to a value of 2, 1, or even 0, but no success. 2. Type about:preferences#content<enter> in the address bar. Across from fonts and colors, press the Advanced button. On the bottom, turn on Allow Web Sites To Choose Their Own. When checked - The boxed question marks appear. 3. The problem is only happening in Firefox. No problem in Safari. (see image)
