Had to click the text field 3 times just to write title to this post because I made a post on Twitter that's getting a bunch of interaction. Notifications take the cursor focus away from the text input field whether that's on a site or the search bar or the address bar. Very annoying. Windows 10, latest version of Firefox, but it also happened with the previous version. Please help!

If I manage my bookmarks from the Menu>Bookmarks>Manage Bookmarks at the bottom, a separate window pops up where I can attempt to organize my bookmarks.

It seems I have limited functionality in being able to edit these lists and folders. Under "All Bookmarks" I have (3) folders, the Bookmarks Toolbar (which I rarely use anymore), the Bookmarks Menu, and another folder called "Other Bookmarks" which I had added years ago. (Perhaps this folder has been grandfathered in? I don't know that you can add folders at this level anymore)

After moving all the contents of "Other Bookmarks" to the "Bookmarks Menu", I wish to eliminate the "Other Bookmarks" folder. The folder is now empty, but the RMB menu still shows the "delete folder" option grayed out.

I read somewhere that Sync might have something to do with it, but even after signing out of Sync, and trying again, it wouldn't work.

Anything under the "Bookmarks Menu" folder, I have no problem deleting or moving links and folders. (though the GUI could be a little more streamlined) I am just not able to manage anything at the top level. Is there currently a way to do this?

Thank you. Kurt

How can I overrun the Secure Connection Failed?

Every time this happened to me it was a false alarm, even with one internet service provider before clicking 4 times on the «Try Again» button. I fail to understand why is Firefox taking decisions that only belong to me. I cannot accept any browser or whatsoever deciding over my own wish. An advice is welcome, but not take the command. With the advice, Firefox has done its duty well. Then, if someone takes a wrong decision that will be up to him and himself alone. Furthermore, all the advices I have had up to date were wrong, the most frequent being a certificate just expired shortly ago.

I am with Firefox since it appeared, the Netscape and then a Mozilla with editing facility, many years ago. I kept it because it is a browser that we can «domesticate», but if it changed to this point where we cannot do what we want or need, it seems that I'll finally have to change browser. There are a few other very safe browsers, like Tor, but still, I am used to Firefox.

So, how can I overrun the Secure Connection Failed, please?

Before updating Firefox to 123.0.1 (64-bit) + MacOS Sonoma, I could use FIDO2 on OnlyKey and login to my proton mail. Now, however something has changed on Firefox that I get presented with two prompts to touch my usb key, but the key itself doesn't respond to the second prompt and login fails.

I first get this prompt as before. I select 'Authenticate' and would be presented with the second picture. Since my key is not expecting to be touched, nothing happens when I touch it and login fails with the message displayed in the last picture.

I called the Credit Union. NO PROBLEMS at their end. I was asked which browser. I was told that Firefox is frequently the problem! I changed to Google Chrome and had NO trouble signing in.

I have had this problem previously with a few other websites.

ANY WAY for ME to fix the problem since I FAR prefer Firefox?

Thanks,Arthur

I am using Firefox 123.0.0 (rel. 20-Feb-2023) on a Win 10 Pro v22H2 computer.

I understand that FF123.0.0 is supposed to include a new option to "Report Broken Site" on the menu (hamburger icon) that is described in the support article How do I report a broken site in Firefox desktop? but I can't see this new option. I also checked the menu options under More Tools and Help but can't find it.

Exiting and re-opening Firefox didn't solve the problem.

Hello there,

I like Firefox to ask me what to do each time with PDF documents, so I've set the action for PDF to "Always Ask". However, I've noticed that when I load a page with a PDF document embedded inline, and I select "Open with Firefox" on the dialog box, the document always opens in a new tab.

In other words: there are certain PDF documents that get displayed inline when the action for PDF is "Open in Firefox"; but those same documents get opened in new tabs when set to "Always Ask".

Is possible for Firefox to display PDFs inline while asking me what to do each time?

Thanks in advance!

on the 16th of March, I lost my backpack which had a large number of irreplacible values on a train. One that is replaceable was my laptop that I use a lot with firefox.

IS it possible to find the location of my laptop via Firefox?

A setting that shows recent login activity? Anything at all! IP addresses, A website that was opened in a location? Maybe someone found my laptop and for whatever reason, opened my browser. The only browsers I have are Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge.

If you have any knowledge about finding the location of a laptop beyond using Firefox, I would greatly greatly appreciate any advice or any knowledge you could share with me that I could try. Laptop uses Windows 11.

My life feels like it is ruined since I lost this backpack. It could be in the train still, it could be waiting to be registered at a lost and found department, it could also be in the hands of someone else. I had around 5 or 6 photo albums in this bag :(

I do a lot of link posting from my professional site to various Reddit subs in which I am a member. In the past, FF would automatically close the Reddit tab after I posted the link to the sub. But now after posting, the tab remains open. This is inconvenient because I then have to close all those tabs manually. I would prefer the tab to close itself.

The odd thing is that for other sites where I post links (Buffer, Flipboard, Facebook, etc.) the tab closes automatically after posting.

Anyone know of a fix or way to configure the Reddit site to do that? Could there be a browser setting that directs those other sites to close the tab automatically?

For a couple of months, I've been getting the error message "This page isn't redirecting properly" whenever I use Firefox. The problem doesn't seem to happen when I'm clicking on a bookmark, a saved link in Firefox's history, or a Google search result, but it happens almost every time when there is some sort of redirect involved (for example, from a link in an email newsletter to the linked website, or from a login/authentication page to the website's main page). This used to clear up after hitting "Try again" four or five times, but this week it's become stuck in an infinite loop, making some websites unusable.

I've tried the following: - Clearing cookies and cache for specific websites - Clearing cookies and cache for the entire browser - Starting Firefox in troubleshooting mode to see if the problem is with a specific extension - Deleting Firefox entirely and redownloading it - Deleting the cookies.sqlite, cookies.sqlite-shm and cookies.sqlite-wal files and restoring from a manual backup as per this answer (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1403719)

None of those have fixed the problem. Does anyone have any other ideas of what to do here? I am frustrated and out of ideas.
