After creating a new Windows User account and switching back to original account, I lost ALL of my Quick Access Bookmarks! Then I did a Bookmark Restore using the most recent saved Bookmark file and I lost around 64,050 bookmarks!!! Now, the latest saved Bookmark file lists 5 items. This is a ridiculous and a very serious issue!!!

What is going on? I spend a lot of time getting important Bookmarks for research, and etc. How can I get all of my Bookmarks back? Apparently, I cannot get them all back. See attached file.

When I close Firefox at night & open it next day. Every tab is lost, so I have no record of the sites I was using. This has happened several times. I am now seriously looking at dumping Firefox due to its very unstable & unreliable performance. Fire fox does not offer any means of reopening all the tabs that it closed, it actually deletes all tracking. Firefox is unstable, unreliable & totally user unfriendly. I am dumping Firefox for a more professional browser, as Firefox is rude & makes it impossible to contact & seek advice. I think Firefox sucks.

I chose lavender as the background color, but I hate it. It has changed all my links to lavender and I want to go back to the default settings before I added the lavender. I want the default settings before the Colorways options were made available.

Even though I have figured out how to change the themes, the lavender color is still present in certain words. I want it to go. I want what I had before I added the lavender theme.

I have looked at the articles, but I cannot find an option that says "go back to what you had before" or "undo" or "restore default settings". I'm possibly missing a step. Don't know. I'm frustrated that I can add something so easily, but not get rid of it so easily.

Please help me restore my back ground colors to pre-Colorways add-on lavender. I have a Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.6.

Sometimes when loading a page, and the page is slow to respond, I will see a strange situation: The page is totally blank (the F12 tool does not display page content). The refresh button is gray (disabled), or sometimes although the refresh button enabled, the url textbox is "about:blank", which means I cannot actually reload the page I want to read. I have to re-navigate to the page through the link in the previous link. I'm not sure whether I got across. I hope the issue can be fixed.

Hello! Please give me instructions on how to permanently block / stop FireFox's "Welcome Pages".

I remember asking FireFox to block trackers and suppress as much advertising as possible. I never thought that FireFox would think that it was OK for FireFox itself to track me and send me unsolicited advertising.

I just received a FireFox "Welcome Page". This is something I don't recall ever seeing before. On the "Welcome" page I found a link that informed me that "Welcome Pages" are sent when people reach certain "Milestones". FireFox had to be tracking me in order to decide I'd reached a "Milestone" - although I have no idea what Milestone I reached.

On top of that, the so-called "Welcome Page" is actually an ADVERTISEMENT for an UNSOLICITED product offer to pay FireFox for something. What kind of "welcome" is that ?

All I can say is I'm very shocked that FireFox has taken advantage of making me feel I'm being protected from tracking and ads, which the browser seems to do quite well, EXCEPT for FireFox itself. That is shameful in my opinion.

Thank you in advance for your assistance helping me to go the extra mile and plug the tracking and ad leak I was not aware that I've had all of this time.

Hi,

I'm using Waterfox and since the last upgrade, I've lost all my bookmarks. I've tried what I can find in help and so far, I've not managed to find anything that will bring them back.

I'd appreciate some help and advice please - I had hundreds of bookmarks and to lose them all is something of a nuisance to put it politely!

Thanks in advance, for any help and suggestions given.

Regards,

Mark

"Bookmarks & Other Bookmarks " Part Two due to topic being "Archived"

Greetings!

First jscher2000, & Cor-el, I Absolutely Thank both of You for the Time/Effort that you have put in to helping me, &,..... If I have appeared to be "Ride/Crude &/or Socially Un-acceptable" in my statements, I Absolutely Apologize. And, even though My "Bookmarks Situation" is still not "Normal" & it is time consuming to use,..... It is far better than what it was initially, & I Thank both of You, for having gotten it to that point.


Having gotten caught up a little with my work, & still not having the issue of my "Bookmarks" not taken care of,I went back to the long thread of "Bookmarks & Other Bookmarks " only to find this problem "Archived", without it having been Solved.

This issue has been ongoing since March 4, 2021, where my "Bookmarks" were missing, to where my "Other Bookmarks" are getting placed within My Main Bookmarks.

jscher2000, on June 7,2021 , You stated: 

"I have no explanation for inability to drag and drop as long as your database is healthy."


Sir,... What Data/ Tests, would show whether my Database is Healthy or not? After all that has been done to get my Bookmarks to the point where they are now, did any of the previous procedures indicate anything about the "Health of My Database"?



cor-el, on June 13,21, you stated:

"If you use Sync then best is to disconnect Sync temporarily during troubleshooting.

This can be caused by a problem with the places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite databases in the Firefox profile folder.

   use "Verify Integrity" button on the "Help -> More Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page 

If errors are reported with "Verify Integrity", close and restart Firefox or reboot and retry.

If "Verify Integrity" cannot repair places.sqlite, rename/remove all places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite files in the Firefox profile folder with Firefox closed. Firefox will rebuild places.sqlite and restore the bookmarks from a recent JSON backup in the bookmarkbackups folder.

   keep a backup copy of places.sqlite in case a new places.sqlite database has to be created 

You lose the history when a new places.sqlite is created.

   https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-bookmarks-and-history-will-not-be-functional 

You can use the button on the "Help -> More Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page.

   Help -> More Troubleshooting Information -> Profile Folder/Directory:
   Windows: Open Folder; Linux: Open Directory; Mac: Show in Finder
   https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profiles-where-firefox-stores-user-data " 

My last post was on June 14,2021 where I posted data, that appeared to suggest that my "places.sqlite database sane" (meaning "Normal"?) And that my "The database is coherent"., ... (Which in My thinking means that it should be understandable, possibly "Healthy"?)

But Gentlemen,..... I'm not "well versed" in the usage of a Computer/ Browser etc., & If "My Livelihood"  was dependent upon repairing/diagnosing Soft Ware Applications, .... I'd Starve to Death.  

But, if an application were related to my work,.... I'd have somewhat firmer ground to stand upon, which is why I posted June 14, 21:

"If this were a ECU for a Walk-n Refrigeration unit, I'd know what these "Codes" above meant, but here, I don't have a clue whether the data is pointing out a problem, or stating that what is causing the "Bookmarks" problem, is not to be found in the above Data."

With that said,.... Cor-el, If I,...... " rename/remove all places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite files in the Firefox profile folder with Firefox closed. Firefox will rebuild places.sqlite and restore the bookmarks from a recent JSON backup in the bookmarkbackups folder."

Will the rebuilt & restored bookmarks from that "recent JSON backup" also be corrupt, since they are a copy of what is being used?

"You lose the history when a new places.sqlite is created."

But not "Bookmarks"?

I'm curious,...... Should I do a "Re-set/Refresh" Again?

And, since "The health" of my browser may be an issue, should I un-install, & re-install Firefox?

Also,.... Firefox, & many other applications have been slow to "Load" &/or "Operate" at times, & despite having Software such as "Privacy Badger", "NoScript", "Ghostery", & "Malwarebytes" all operating, as well as "Windows Security", & "Ccleaner"... I'm thinking that somehow, that something, perhaps "Bit Coin Mining", has latched on to my PC.

What do Ya'll recommend?

I was having issues with Firefox freezing on launch, so I ran the repair which did not help. I tried to uninstall the browser and the uninstall stopped responding. I downloaded and ran the Firefox Setup 93.0.exe file and it freezes trying to execute the default-browser-agent.exe at register-task E7... (see the attached photo - I can't expand the window to read it from there).

I much prefer Firefox to Chrome and would like to get it up and running. Any help would be appreciated.

Every time I open a new window whether through ctrl + n or through the button in application menu, the menu opens up tiny. I've tried resizing it by dragging the edges of the window to the edge of my page, but that has several issues: 1 - It's temporary, and after working for a couple of minutes, it will revert itself without me closing Firefox 2 - I can only resize it horizontally for some reason 3 - Even if I drag it out to the issues, the window won't be maximized, just really big.

So far, I've tried setting privacy.resistFingerPrinting to true, but that didn't work.
