Every time my Mac does an update it bounces Firefox from my system--to the point that I have to download and reinstall it. I lose all of my bookmarks, etc., everything. Any help is appreciated.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

The System Details shows that you use a rather old Firefox 84.0 version.

If there is a problem with updating or with the permissions then best is to download the full version and trash the currently installed Firefox application to do a clean reinstall.

Download a new copy of the Firefox application and save the Disk Image file to the desktop Firefox 96.0.1:

Your personal data like bookmarks is stored in the Firefox profile folder, so you won't lose personal data when you reinstall or update Firefox, but make sure NOT to remove personal data when you uninstall Firefox as that will remove all Firefox profile folders and you lose your personal data.
