An automatic update of Firefox which resulted in a "quit/create new profile" choice has removed all my bookmarks

Of the four profiles stored in "about:profile" three are identical (ie. have only the default bookmarks stored) and one, generates a "quit/create new profile" message.

The "bookmarksbackup" folder (in /home/user/.Mozilla/Firefox/zs1jki8t.default) is empty.

The "import/backup" option (in Manage Bookmarks) offers nothing to choose. There is no 'list of dated automatic backups.'

Firefox did not create an "Old Firefox Data" folder on the desktop.

Browser privacy "strict". "Never remember history" was selected.

Running Firefox in Manjaro (Linux)

Help.

When I open Facebook with Firefox all of the images in the FB session are blank, and they will not open in the usual manner. Also only about 1/4 of the FB session is displayed.

When I use Edge I have no problems at all, so I have to assume that it is FF and not my computer that is at fault.
Please advise.

I open "Manage Bookmarks." I open "Library." In "Search Bookmarks," I enter what I'm searching for, assume NY Times.' All the Times links are displayed. I see in the "Name" field at the bottom that I misspelled a word in a displayed link; e.g., "Pul" instead of "Paul." I go to the "Name" field, add the missing "a", then click on an adjoining link. The edit does not take place - like it used to.

How do I edit the "Name" field in the library?

(NB: Firefox 96.0.2)

Say, for example, I want the download path to be "MyDownloadDirectory/%yyyy/%yyyy.%mm" which means "Change the download path every month to a folder named after the current year and the current month inside a folder named after the current year".

Many non-browser applications allow me to do this, but for some reason browsers generally don't have that option. I was thinking that there was a way to do this in Firefox.

What is a way to do this? If it's not possible in vanilla Firefox, is there an extension available for this?

Ive been using FireFox for a while and think its great but FireFox suddenly stopped working for me even though I use it everyday just fine. The search bar works but literally nothing else works. Its very annoying and I do not know what to do. Someone please help me fix it. I use windows 11 on a HP computer, I do have a lot of extensions but absolutely nothing works so I cant check. Nothing I try will work. I cant list the extensions I have because it’s completely blank and glitched. I hope it isn’t a severe problem. Please give me some advice!

When my Google calendar loads in Firefox the reminder entries don't display by default. All other calendar entries such as appointments, birthdays, etc. display just fine. To make the reminders display, I have to click on the calendar main menu (the three lines) and check the box next to reminders. Then the reminders display fine. However, the next time I start Firefox the reminders once again don't display. Once I have the reminders set I save the settings, but that doesn't help. I don't have this issue with Edge or Chrome. Has anyone else run into this, and if so, have they been able to fix it? Richard

I've got a persistent issue where Firefox immediately crashes when I open it initially.

Starting it again after this crash works totally fine, though if I close out and re-open a few times it will crash consistently (after every 3-5th-ish open).

It has been happening for the last year or so, and despite clean installs of the browser as well as other diagnostics it won't go away. It's incredibly annoying :(

Hoping the Firefox community can give me a hand and help solve this.

Cheers, Ciaran

Hello!

I am multilingual and write in multiple different languages, and the red markings from spellcheck underneath non-English sentences get annoying when they are so frequent. I understand that I can install multiple dictionaries, but that does not allow me to use more than one language's spellcheck at a time.

Is it possible to activate 2+ language dictionaries in Firefox?

Thanks for the help, Sylvan

You have very practical option for the address bar to separate it for the search bar. See the attached screen shot.

We have many local url addresses to the local web server, which the Firefox does not recognize as URL addresses and redirects to the search engine.

So I said in the option, that for the search purposes a separate bar should be used. But the address bar still redirects to the search engine although I said that that the address bar should be used only for the navigation.

Please make the address bar working for the navigation only if the option "Add search bar in toolbar" is selected. Otherwise there is no sense in the separate search bar.

First, check "DeIete cookies and sitedata when Firefox is closed" from Privacy & Security in the settings.

After that, register the Google domain as an exception with "Manage Exceptions".

When I restart Firefox after logging in to Google once, the Google registration information disappears even though I registered the exception, and I have to log in again.

However, there are some sites where my login information will not disappear if I register as an exception.

How can I prevent my Google login information from disappearing even if I restart with the above settings?

Thank you.
