I put "bookmarks" for the subject but that's just because none of the other options adequately describes my situation! I just got a new MacBook Air. I hate Safari, so I always use Firefox instead as my main browser on Mac. Have been doing it for years. This time, I set up Firefox the way I wanted it, with a specific home page, logged into all my sites, emails, Facebook, youtube, etc etc, and set them all on my Toolmarks bar. ... Then a couple of days later, had to re-sign in to my computer due to downloading software, and lost everything I had done on Firefox! Had to re-sign into all my accounts again as well. Set everything up on Firefox again ... couple of days later, had to re-sign into my computer to due to downloading software ... lost everything I had set up on Firefox, had to re-sign into all my accounts. I would be so appreciative if anybody could tell me why this is happening and what I can do to fix it! I really love Firefox and don't want to give it up! Talked to Apple about it and they say it's not their issue. ... Thanks so much!!

Mac 10.15.7. FIREFOX 86. Groups of bookmarks are gone. This happens regularly. Bookmarks I rebuild yesterday, that group is gone today.

The bookmarks are "there" but not in their group.  Takes hours to re-sort.

It takes a LONG time to rebuild from HTML backup. The jsn backup is ok, but it wipes everything I have done today out. I backup almost every day.

I have thousands of bookmarks = hours of work. Then I have to spend many hours rebuilding. 1/ What is happening? 2/ How to stop it?

When I try to Get Messages, it says it can't connect to my server, pop.rcn.com, but I can get into my webmail on Firefox, and my mail is there, and there are no problems with the server.

It stopped the other day as well, and I restarted, and it came back. Today, that didn't work.

I can't upgrade the Mac to 10.15 because I am running Photoshop CS6 with the last generation of Knoll Light Factory for Photoshop, and it won't work after 10.14.

Hi,

I used to be able to display a webpage in reader view and then download a pdf version of the page. I would work really well for saving articles without all the unnecessary menus and sidebars etc. I used it a lot in Firefox on my Samsung tablet.

I now noticed that the option no longer appears in the menu at all. I suspect that this disappeared with the recent big upgrade (I am using version 84). I can "share" a link to the page but that is no good. Quite often pages I can access with a mobile browser are blocked in the desktop version, not really sure why but that's my experience.

Does anyone have any idea whether there is a way to do that now? There doesn't seem to be an add-on as far as I can see that would do that. I really don't understand why they would have deleted this feature.

Any help gratefully received

Hi there,

I have reset and reinstalled Windows on my computer. Unfortunately, I forgot to take notice of the e-mails in my account which had a color label (important, private, work etc.) attached to it. However, I do have a backup of the AppData-folder. Where is the information about the color labels stored and can I somehow restore it?

All e-mails are stored in the cloud and shown in Thunderbird with IMAP. I just need to get the color labels back.

Best Regards, Peter

Often when I open a web page, I have extra words showing, programming words from scripts perhaps, that should not be visible. Often these cover things I do want to see. I've slogged through several upgrades of Firefox but it never seems to get fixed.

This happens only on Firefox; it doesn't appear on Chrome or other browsers I've used, and it isn't isolated to one or two websites, though it doesn't happen on every website. Images attached to illustrate.

For some time now (at least a year), I've noticed that the colors in videos are slightly off. The problem never affects still images, just videos (on every site).

Most users wouldn't notice the problem as it's quite subtle, but all the hues are all slightly off: Reds are slightly more yellow than they should be, yellows are slightly redder, blues are slightly more cyan, and cyans are slightly bluer.

I don't use other browsers so not sure if this is a Firefox problem or a wider problem.

I don't have Flash installed so (presumably) the videos run in HTML5.

Just yesterday some common redirect sites like adfocus and adfly stopped loading in nightly. example: http://adfoc.us/serve/?id=27122877684764

I'm guessing this was done fore security reasons as most people would fall for the fake downloads (or sometimes the entire page redirecting to a new tab when clicked anywhere on it), but it would be great if an option could be added to allow it to load like with: [hey cor-el ask for the link since I don't want this post to get removed :P]

since if you know what you are doing you do eventually work your way to the correct download even if it involves inspecting > deleting the invisible buttons covering the page...

There might already be something in about:config to do it so if so please let me know.

Been noticing this problem lately, but whenever I'm reading a webpage in Reader Mode, occasionally the screen will flash to a blank, white screen, before reloading and going back to normal. It's almost as if the phone has taken a screenshot, but I've done nothing to cause that, and the usual editing commands that come up after a screenshot does not appear. It's not super annoying (like when the Reader Mode doesn't work at all), but it is jarring when you're in the middle of reading a story and suddenly everything goes blank.

Has anyone run into this issue before? Is there a known fix for it?

I downloaded Thunderbird Version 78.8.0 (64 bit for Windows 10) this morning to my new computer. Everything works fine, but I cannot find any tool or option I can use to increase the size of the fonts that are used in the Inbox (I'm old and can't read small type very well). Is there any way to increase he font sizes or change the color of text in these menus and lists? I know I can open an email and enlarge it using my scroll wheel on the cursor, and I can enlarge the screen size in Windows 10, Display Options, but that just runs information off the end of my display. I would appreciate any help that can be provided.

The most prominent info you show when changing to a new version of Thunderbird, or Firefox for that matter, is how to simply continue to use my existing profile. Please make that clear and simple. We shouldn't have to read through a lot of options with terms we may or may not understand when we update. I'm sure it's the reason many people don't update. I know people that are still using ver. 50 something of Firefox because changing profiles is confusing.
