I have been a long time Firefox user, mainly on my 10 year old iMac. Purchased a new iMac this spring and installed Firefox. Everything was fine for the first month or so, then problems started popping up. Spinning rainbow, bouncing icon with no connection, dead in the water responses from browser, etc. None of these which ever happened with the old machine. Apple support wasn't much help since Firefox is a third party program. Tried uninstalling and re-installing Firefox and it worked fine for a couple of weeks, then the same problems started again. Have run a couple of virus and malware programs to be sure there were no problems.

Pretty frustrated at this point, don't really want to use Safari unless absolutely necessary, and haven't gotten near Chrome for years. Any help would really be appreciated.

Thanks, Joe

I always have trouble remembering where to go to request a feature vs report a bug. I couldn't find "feature request" so here I am.

When I save a bookmark by clicking the star, I get a drop down box. I have "Show editor when saving" checked. I then want to search for the folder in which to save my bookmark and so I hit the down arrow on the right. This expands the window to show some folder. However, the window is small and you have to keep clicking and scrolling. It would be so much better if the window was resizeable so I could expand it (after all isn't that why they are called windows?) or if I could enter the full bookmark editor. Then I could quickly and easily find the folder I am looking for. The attached image shows the tiny fixed sized window that Firefox presents.

Thank you.

Hello,

The latest and greatest FF update did not import my FF bookmarks and saved PW. I followed all instructions on FF troubleshooting and forums and nothing seems to restore my data. I have a old FF data, but it's stating nothing has been backed up since 2018, however I've used FF daily. Any suggestions? Thank you in advance!

In Firefox>Privacy and Security, there are two very similar looking settings regarding routine cookie destruction:

Cookies and Site Data>check Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed. Manage Permissions [A site list with Block, Allow, Allow for Session]

History>Firefox will Use custom settings for History>Clear history when Firefox closes. Settings: check Cookies

My current understanding is that Cookies and Site Data potentially provides exclusions from the cookie carnage, whereas the History setting per above would delete all cookies. Is this correct as far as it goes? What I keep wondering is why the topic of cookie destruction when closing cannot be handled in one area of the Settings layout, instead of in two different areas.

The drop-down menu for the address bar on my computer now has little pin images over the icons. I used to have 10 sites listed, but now there's just 8, and a couple of them are sites I don't use anymore, but I can't remove them; I highlight them and hit Shift-Delete, but they won't go away! I don't know what the new update did, but I want this fixed.

Until the most recently Firefox update (7/1/20), when I clicked in my address bar, it would drop down and show the web sites I visited most frequently. Now, when I click in the address bar, it shows a bunch of random websites, some of which I only visited once a long time ago. How do I get the drop down menu back to how it was before the update? Thanks.

Show me how to find the bookmark manager

I've seen this question from two years ago, but the answer is not valid (any more).

I had several machines with different purposes and when I got a Firefox account, I signed them all in. Now the bookmarks are chaotic, and I want to combine them in a more rational way. I need a real manager that allows me to do this. I'm sure there is one, but I cannot find it.

Currently FF 77.0.1, according to help.

I am having a problem with creating a "workable" desktop shortcut for the Walmart grocery website. (I do not have problems with any other shortcuts I have created, only the Walmart website shortcut). The problem only began recently, as I have had a shortcut on my desktop for Walmart for months now. When the website locked up on me one day I deleted the original shortcut I had at that time, and I have tried many times since to create another one, but none will work. I am able to click and drag, from the Walmart website, to the desktop, to create the shortcut, however when I click on the shortcut to open it I only get a blank page. This is ONLY with the Walmart shortcut I create. What's going on, and why is this happening! It's infuriating!

Hi all, I just changed to Firefox ESR since some websites are not being correctly displayed in the "normal" firefox, this version works much better but I don't like that when I click in the address bar I have to double-click to select the URL, not like in the "normal" firefox, so, I just want to know if there is a way to change to when I click it automatically the URL gets selected. Thanks!

I am using Firefox Extended Support Release 68.10.0esr (64-bit) in MX Linux 19.2
