Greetings forum -

I have Firefox on automatic update. Last night Firefox auto updated to version 78.0.1 and this update added pre-installed bookmarks suggestions that appear when I click the command line.

These pre-installed bookmarks suggestions are offensive trash like: facebook, twitter, reddit, etc.

I have searched the help section. I have scoured the customize pull down menus. I have looked through the bookmark editor ... and found no clear method of removing these pre-installed bookmarks suggestions.

There MUST be a way to do so. I CAN NOT see facebook, twitter, and reddit in my bookmarks every time I click on the command line.

Does anyone know of a method to remove these pre-installed bookmarks suggestions?

Thanks in advance for your time and knowledge.

Hello,

The latest and greatest FF update did not import my FF bookmarks and saved PW. I followed all instructions on FF troubleshooting and forums and nothing seems to restore my data. I have a old FF data, but it's stating nothing has been backed up since 2018, however I've used FF daily. Any suggestions? Thank you in advance!

I have just switched to a new Macbook laptop. If firefox, when clicking on the bookmark star in the address field, the drop down box opens to edit the bookmark. When clicking on Choose Bookmark, the list that opens contains only 6 lines of folders to choose from. With my last few computers, I was easily able to search and get an answer on how to increase the number of lines from 6 to whatever I wanted. Unfortunately, I never wrote it down and now I cannot recall how to do this. Can anyone tell me how to do this? Thank you!

Hi,

I am running Firefox 78.0.1 64-bit on MacOS Catalina 10.15.5.

I get these unwanted advertisements for Google and Amazon whenever I go to type in the address bar (see attached images). How do I disable them? I can't see any option in the "Search" section of Preferences or searching Preferences in general. My search engine of choice is DuckDuckGo, and I do not have an Amazon account. Why does Firefox think have a desire to interact with these companies?

Thanks in advance for your help!

When I try to checkout on a site using Shopify, the credit card fields are unusable. The form fields turn into animations, almost like an animated GIF and will not stop. It is difficult to describe what is going on. Here's what it looks like:https://i.imgur.com/mTJfDeD.mp4. I don't know how else to illustrate the issue. This has been going on for the past several versions of Firefox. I'm currently using 79.0b3 (64-bit) on a Mac.

Firefox occasionally displays the digit 9 as a dash "-". On any particular website this can occur on all pages, only some pages or on one part of a page and not another part of the same page. This occurs in the same places on Chrome and Opera but it does not occur on Safari. I have seen it occur on text sent from a website as well as on text I type. In one example, the font-family is Helvetica and the problem occurs on larger font-sizes but not smaller sizes sent from the website. In another example, when typing a credit card number, the font-size is typically small and the problem does occur. I am using Firefox version 77.0.1 on Mac OS 10.11.

Hello!

I was wondering if there are any plans to add a feature like this (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-CA/firefox/addon/auto-tab-discard/) to Firefox? I tend to keep lots of tabs open at once, and I'd love to be able to pause unused tabs without closing them. But I'd prefer to avoid giving an add-on access to all of my data. So I keep hoping that this type of feature will get incorporated into Firefox. Do you know if there are any plans like this?

Thanks so much in advance and for the work that you're doing!

Subject says it all - just about. When I attempt to open one particular website, I enter my userID and password and when screen opens it is not to the website selected but to a screen showing information about Oracle iPlanet Web Site. Cannot find a way to get past this screen. Been accessing this site daily for months without a hitch. A few weeks ago this happened one time. I closed FireFox and reopened and worked as it should . Then yesterday this started again and happens every time. Can access from Safari. Only install one new application recently, TotalAV but that was about 10 days ago.m Will attempt to add screen shot of what I see. The website I am attempting to access is in connection with my employer and I need to access it on at least a weekly basis. Other websites of my employer work fine. Please advise ehw

Hi everyone, I'm having issues with my url/navigation bar and I can't find out how to fix it. I already reinstalled firefox but it didn't change the issue: When I type in a website (or a search) in the url bar, nothing happens when I press enter, I have to manually click on the arrow to get the browser to react. (It works just fine in other browsers). I tried to de- and re-activate all the Address Bar Suggestions in preferences but this also didn't change anything.

Hope there's a solution out there..

All good Simon

I can't get spellcheck to work. I'm using Firefox on a Mac. This is true even when using a box with multiple lines.

I have ticked the box in preferences that says Check your spelling as you type. I have a language chosen - English (United Kingdom). I tried installing a different dictionary in Add-ons, but it made no difference.

I've gone into about:config and adjusted the settings in layout.spellcheckDefault and checked services.sync.prefs.sync.layout.spellcheckDefault, which made no difference.

I've read posts that say to right click and look at the dictionaries, but this doesn't work for me (could be because I'm using a Mac). Same with pressing Control.

Any thoughts?

I'm on an iMac running mac OS Catalina (version 10.15.5). Using Firefox (78.0.2) the Centriq login page (https://app.mycentriq.com/) has stopped loading recently. Firefox has been updated since I last logged in successfully. The login page does properly load using Safari web browser. So, I believe something has changed with the recent Firefox update that is preventing the Centriq login page to load. The one thing I have tried, but did not work, is to turn off Enhanced Tracking Protection for the login page. All help is appreciated. Thank you.
