Windows 8.1, Firefox 102.0.1

I recently discovered that it is quite true that some folks (including the folks at Mozilla) store cookies in DOM storage.

For example, it is impossible to log into your Mozilla account (because you are not accepting cookies!) if you have set dom.storage.enabled = false using the about:config editor.

So, as you can see, those sneaky folks at Mozilla :) like to obscure "cookie" collecting by using DOM storage cookies instead of the usual cookies everyone complains about and have to be warned about by law. (I love the "I don't care about cookies" extension, by the way. It shuts up that completely asinine annoyance.)

As a test of sorts I would like toggle the blocking of DOM cookies on a regular basis by toggling dom.storage.enabled. Rather than going back and forth and toggling the value manually using the about:config editor I would like to automate the process, possibly with a Windows batch file or a script. Also, possibly, (just for fun) I would like to take this concept of the automating the changing of certain preference values into building an extension. If I ever learn how to properly code one, that is.

So, my question is -- Where is the dom.storage.enabled value stored? (I examined the pref.js file but it is not there unless it has some other name.)

Firefox blocks out some posts with an 'OBJ' box as follows: Eagle lady (Jean Keene) sign from the Homer spit. This is one of my favorite signs in my collection. I’m pretty sure that she was the only person ever to be allowed to feed eagles and probably the last. She started feeding them in the 70s for about 20 years until she passed away. She was a tough, unique woman. She started off as a rodeo daredevil in the 50’s and worked for the Red River Rodeo as a trick rider.  Jean worked with many celebrities, including the likes of Gene Autry also known as the “singing cowboy.” She eventually had to retire from the rodeo, because she got hurt on a horse. She drove semi trucks and opened a dog and cat grooming business before eventually moving to Homer Alaska.

        If anybody else has any peninsula signs from the past, and would like to share please do so, we would love to see them.

WHY? WHY? WHY?

For the love of God, can someone explain who thought it was a good idea to remove the option to sort bookmarks menus by name? Please do not suggest users to open the All bookmarks and using the View > Sort option because it's not permanent, such useless option only applies temporarily while that window is open.

What version must I downgrade to in order to recover the bookmarks sort by name? Because of course the option won't be recovered. Kindly explain who, and why did you decide it was very useful for the end user to delete this option.

But it didn't.

What could cause the problem?

Back in 2019 I learned how to set Firefox so that a website opening a new window would always include standard menus (the website could not suppress them). Now I get windows without the menus and controls I need.

I used some combination of 

dom.disable_window_open_feature.menubar

   and

dom.event.contextmenu.enabled

These haven't done the job for over a year now.

How do I do this now?

Thanks in advance, Lawrence

p.s. I note that I run Windows 8.1 (up-to-date), but have a Windows 10 I could use if it would work better there (up-to-date).

I've been a Firefox user for years. A few days ago I got a pop-up message box that read: "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window. [Close Firefox] [Cancel]"

However, no matter how many times I click the "Close Firefox" button, the message box keeps coming back up and will not let me around it. I'd delete the program and install again, but my current Firefox has info in the Bookmarks I'd like to keep.

Any way to close the pop-up window and allow me back to the Firefox home page?

Thanks! Michael
