Hi my friends,

My PC was broken so I re-installed the OS, then re-installed the Firefox browser, reset the password and signed in to sync the bookmarks, but then I noticed all of my important bookmarks collected in the last 5+ years are lost, is that a Firefox bug? Any way to recover them? Any advice would be much appreciated.

P.S. I'm a developer and bookmarks are very important to me, but this is the second time Firefox lose my bookmarks, the first time was caused by the Firefox Android app years ago, such experience is really frustrated, looks like I might have to give up Firefox and seek for a different browser as my primary browser.

How can I replace the hourglass icon in the url bar, without setting the the ui.prefersReducedMotion to 1, which will then increase the url bar enlarging when opening a new tab?

Bottom line: I want no hourglass icon while loading and disable the "expanding/enlarging" URL bar

I have firefox developer edition 88.0b9, I have disabled updates using policies.json(DisableAppUpdate: true), so the infamous "update to the latest version" popup with the green icon went away. But now it seems there's another form of those popups that firefox employs. And in the search bar this time. Why aren't they disabled by DisableAppUpdate? How can I disable them using about:config or something of the sort? Pretty sure I've got no malware or anything, always been careful about that kind of thing. Don't have many programs installed. Don't have any addons except an adblocker. All the buttons on that annoying popup lead to official mozilla resources: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/update-firefox-latest-release https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/ So what do I do with those popups? I have no intention of updating(I don't want any redesigns, any new functionaly, any other things that would disrupt me and change the stuff I'm used to). Only want to disable those popups. That's the entire reason I used policies.json - to disable those annoying popups. But now another form of them appears.

I have been having a slight on going problem with Firefox lately. Where the PC will freeze with CPU load pegged at 100% for several seconds between watching videos or when an ad pops up while watching a video(normally I run uBlock, but I disabled all add-ons), but this is random and wont happen on at times. I am currently using Waterfox and have 0 issues, but Waterfox is not supported fully for Amazon Prime Video.

I have done the common things such as updating to the latest release, reinstalling the browser, refreshing the browser, disabling all add-ons, updated drivers, disabled hardware acceleration, reinstalled windows but the issue does seem to be persistent.

Even after a clean install of Windows & an install the latest Firefox the issue cropped up.

I did use Firefox's performance recorder to capture When viewing under ""Waterfall"" The main large recorded events are DOM Event and when expanded has Promise Callback When viewing under ""Call Tree"" The largest event is MediaSource.isTypeSupported

I did save the recording so it can be viewed as I do not understand the details.

I know this is not a hardware issue as I also duel boot LMDE4 and have 0 issues using Firefoxwhen in Linux and if it were a hardware issue I would expect to have problems in linux as well as when using Waterfox in windows.

I have stress tested my GPU and have had 0 issues. I can upload the Performance Recording if needed.


My Hardware is. i5 6600K 32GB 3000Mhz RAM GTX1080 1TB NVMe SSD.

Hello!

I don't like to use DuckDuckGo, therefore I changed the Default Search Engine which works quite well. In addition I removed DuckDuckGo from the Search Shortcuts.

Nevertheless when I open a new tab and just type in "d" the first suggestion from auto-complete is always DuckDuckGo. This is quite annoying since one of my favourite websites starts with "d" as well. Is there a possibility to force auto-complete to suggest a specific website when I tipe in "d" or at least prevent auto-complete from suggesting DuckDuckGo?

Thanks!

I have 2 problems which have just started occuring when I try to access websites, 400 Bad Request messages and pop up window asking for a user name and password for normally open sites.

An example of the Bad Request message occurs when I go to the Guardian webpage https://www.theguardian.com/travel/2012/jul/11/top-10-pembrokeshire-walks which displays normally but when I try to follow one of the links which should take me to National Trust pages I get the 400 Bad Request message. I have used this website before with no problem but this has started occuring on this and other sites over the last week. I also get the message when I try to go to http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/main/ from the bookmark I have used for many years.

The other problem occurs when I type www.nationaltrust.org.uk, I get a pop up window which says Authentication required - Mozilla Firefox http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk is requesting your user name and password. The site says: DSL-3782 Usaer name Password.

Cancelling the pop up causes 401 Unauthorised message If I give it any usename and pass word it comes back the the blank pop up again except when I enter my DSL-3782 router username and passwood which gives routers Internet status page with no errors or messages.

I have tried clearing caches etc. with no effect.

These problems also occur on some other websites and on my laptop.

Has anyone had these problems? What is the cure?

Hello,

I'm not too sure of why that happened with the upgrade and was a little surprised about that. Hope I can be able to get around this in some way if one of you know anything about this. Thanks.
