A few months ago, an automatic feature in bookmarks quit working. It used to be that when you bookmarked a page you would be prompted about what bookmarks folder you wanted to put it in. That suddenly quit working. Now, after you bookmark a page, you have to go into "Manage Bookmarks" then move it to the folder you want. I can't find a setting that would bring that back. Was this a change that was deliberately made in an update or is it just a glitch that happened somewhere along the line? If that feature was removed, I'd like to know why. It doesn't make sense.

I recently moved my other PC to Windows 10, then put on Firefox (browser). When I drop down the menu below the address bar, I see random web sites I apparently have used -- not what I want to see. I want what my laptop (Firefox on Windows 10, also) shows which is a set of web sites that I visit often. That list is fixed and does not deviate. THAT is what I want for my the other PC with the new Windows 10 on it. What setting(s) in Firefox controls this? I have attached a screenshot of the preferred drop down menu that I cannot seem to duplicate on the new Windows 10.

Thanks to all in advance for whatever advice you might offer.

I have observed this bug only in Disqus, but another Disqus user has seen it in other web sites viewed via Firefox, so maybe you could check your logic. Here is the original bug:

When entering a Disqus comment [or possibly other text boxes] and using the Enter key to end the first paragraph, the text typed so far is erased. It can be recovered by immediately pressing Ctrl+Z (Undo), but this is not obvious; most users will think they just lost that text, and will retype it. This was sporadic for a year or two, but right now (morning of 10/2/2023) it seems to happen on every comment I type. In the past, it only occurred on the FIRST Enter key, at least if I recovered via Undo. The only contact I have with Disqus is in the comments on an episode of the Kevin and Kell webcomic (https://kevinandkell.com). I am running Windows 10 on a Bootcamp'ed Mac, and my browser is the latest version of Mozilla Firefox.

Disqus user FreedomFighter replied:

That is a common problem unique to Firefox. When you hit enter and the post erases, right click in the box and click on "Undo" to get the text back, then you can do what you need to do whether is type more words, or post the comment.

[His recovery is essentially the same as mine, only using the mouse rather than the keyboard.]

Could this be an interaction between Firefox and Disqus? I have not personally seen this on any other website via Firefox, but FreedomFighter apparently has seen it elsewhere.

Keep or save the setting for never saving a history?

When I select in Settings>Privacy & Security>History, that a history should never be saved and close the Settings tab, the next time I go to Settings, the option is replaced by the setting, that saves a history according to customisation and there's a check mark to always use the Private Mode. Apparently Firefox doesn't keep or save the setting. I learned from https://support.mozilla.org/de/kb/privater-modus that saving a history according to customisation with the option to always use the Private Mode enabled, is the same as never saving a history, nevertheless it should be possible to keep the setting (as the setting exists). How can I solve the problem?

Hello,

Recently Firefox tends to start autoplaying a YouTube video if I am on the tab.

Before it would not play the video if i am on the tab unless I physically press play.

It still works if I open a YouTube video in a tab that is not active, it will not autoplay, but as soon as I hover over and click on that tab it will start playing, however I do not want this to happen, I want it to pretty much always be autoplay blocked regardless if tab is active or not and I want to physically press play in order for it to start.

How to revert it to that state?

My block audio and video setting in firefox is already turned on, not sure what to do, pretty sure I did nothing on my end.

Right now I have to use extension called "disable autoplay" just to get by.

Thanks guys!

Often, I am unable to submit with Foxfire. Usually, I disable a mess of blocking/privacy settings, and sometimes this works. Not today. The annoying ReCapta pictures/bridges/bicycles/sidewalks never showed. Never. Selecting the submission button failed to cause any kind of a reaction. Finally, had to use Chrome. What gives? Can this be fixed?

Oh, yeah, I'm a retired wildlife biologist, not a programmer, so please dumb it down.

I have FF set up to use only DDG. Part of this setup is that I have removed all other search engines from search options. Today Oct 7, 2023, when I booted up things were normal. About an hour ago I entered a search term in the browser and the search result came up on google. That should not be possible. I checked my settings and sure enough google has been added and placed atop DDG. Furthermore google cannot be removed when selected, the remove button is greyed out. The remove button is not greyed out when DDG is selected. !? What happened and how do I fix it?

My Firefox 118.0.1 on Win 10 (all current updates) is creating literally thousands of profile files daily. For example, at this moment there are 3957 profile files with names like

6D89348819C8881868053197CA0754F36784B4BFSF

in the directory C:\Users\(user)\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ywlawdlc.default-release-2\cache2\entries

There are also thousands of other profile files in folders from previous dates.

What is the purpose of this many profile files, and how do I stop their creation in such quantities?

Thanks Dave

I posted earlier about a search settings problem. I have been monkeying with things until I got a reply7 that led me to a fix. Except now I cannot see my addons on the toolbar and can't figure out how to make them visible. They seem to be there if I scroll over the spot but are not visible to me so that I can use them. Right click gives me the drop menu but left click gives nothing. And how do you get rid of that dang puzzle piece thing?

there used to be an add on called roomy bookmarks that stopped working so people found ways around to replicate it and it works on win 10 but I just switched to Win 11 and this solution doesnt seem to work anymore for me, anyone know if i need to change anything?

    Locate your firefox profile folder, in this article they say where you can find it: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder
   Find your profile folder mine was: C:\Users\***\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\***.default\
   Locate a folder called chrome (if it doesn't exists create one through your O.S) must be lowercase
   Locate inside chrome folder the file: userChrome.css (if it doesn't exists create one through your O.S, google how to create a .css file on notepad) Chrome must be cased as shown above
   Add the code: https://pastebin.com/1r6cc8hW
   Restart Firefox, now you are done, if you don't want text to be displayed within the icons just remove the last line. 

This is the line of code i have in css file that works for me in my win 10 machine.

Hi, I am using Firefox 118.0 for Fedora that comes with my Linux distribution (Fedora 38 Kinoite). Everything was working fine, but as of today, when I try to start Firefox from a taskbar, my entire desktop goes black for a second and then returns to normal with Firefox not starting as if I didn't click on the icon at all. However, if I open the Terminal and run Firefox from there, everything works fine. I am not sure if the problem is related to Firefox, KDE Plasma or Fedora, so I will start here. I attach my system info below.

On my own computer, a Dell laptop running Windows 10, my Firefox 118 is customized to my satisfaction. In particular, in the upper right, from right to left, there are five icons: three lines for accessing a Firefox functions menu, a "puzzle piece" icon for accessing add-ons, a U-Block Origin icon for that ad blocker, a set of vertical lines that let me access some bookmarks and history settings, and a star that, when clicked, displays my whole bookmarks menu tree, showing a combination of individual URLs and URL folders that I saved there.

    Now I am trying to set up a new Dell laptop the same way. It's running Windows 11, and I cannot find a way to display that Firefox menu star. It's got the other star (the "save to favorites" star, farther to the left), but I cannot find a way to display that "show me my bookmarks" star. How do I get that icon to display?

The horizontal scroll arrows are not working on Amazon prime video using Firefox on a pc running Win10.

It hasn't worked for some time and I thought it was an Amazon problem, but I've tried other browsers and devises and it works on all of them EXCEPT Firefox.

My Firefox for pc is up to date. I have uninstalled and reinstalled twice. I have tried cntrl +/- thinking maybe I just wasn't seeing them - they're not there. All drivers are up to date.

I don't want to use another browser but i use Amazon prime video a LOT and this problem makes it nearly useless. HELP please?

I have found that Firefox does not play some audio files, for instance on Wikipedia and WaniKani, such as the audio on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erhu and https://www.wanikani.com/vocabulary/%E9%9F%B3. When inspecting network activity I can see that an attempt is made to load the audio on Wikipedia, but it does not play. On WaniKani however, no attempt is made. (WaniKani uses .webm for sound, maybe that has something to do with it?) The problem appeared after the update to Firefox 118 and persists in private browsing and troubleshooting mode, but does not occur in GNOME Web.
