My Addons are working okay, however when I look at the about:addons page the list only shows blank spaces where addons should be, only a blue highlight shows if I click on each addon.

This is the same for my Plugins and Themes.

I have tried deleting some files in my profile as suggested by others on here with similar problems but none work.

Up until 3 days ago I was able to delete individual cookies. I would click on the remove selected cookies in the manage cookies pop up window. Next I would click on save changes button. I would click on remove button in the drop down removing cookies window. Then the drop down window and the manage cookies pop up window would both close and my selected cookies would be deleted.

Now everything is the same until I get to the drop down removing cookies window. I click on the remove button and the drop down removing cookies window closes, but the pop up manage cookies stays open and the cookies I selected to delete are not deleted.

I don't know if it's a bug or what. I have restarted firefox - still doesn't work. I have restarted my Mac - it still doesn't work.

Hopefully someone can help me.

Chrome has, and I'm pretty sure FF used to have, the ability to show what folder a bookmark was in when right clicking it from bookmark search results in the bookmarks organizer.

It'd be great to add it back to the right-click menu there and also add it to a right-click menu off bookmark results from searching "* ..." in the awesome bar.

In Show All Bookmarks it doesn't show the location of listed bookmarks. Help.

I keep an archive of profile backups on an external hard drive. The backups are compressed, and I usually include the version of Firefox last used by the (principle) profile in the compressed archive filename (e.g., userinfo-firefox-56.0_date). I also make a semi-regular sync backup of the currently used profile. So far, so good.

My currently synced backup, which has not been compressed and archived, is about a month old. (I did say semi-regular.) I would like to compress and archive it before syncing, but I am no longer sure of the exact version of Firefox it used. I usually run updates when released, and can suppose Firefox 65.x, but what if I would like to be more exact? After running a search of files containing "version" in the main profile, I came across a file named compatibility.ini, which resides in the root directory. The contents are as follows:

[Compatibility] LastVersion=65.0.1_20190211233335/20190211233335 LastOSABI=WINNT_x86_64-msvc LastPlatformDir=C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox LastAppDir=C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\browser

Is this a reliable way to detect the last version of Firefox used by the profile?

While attempting to fix my laptop battery I either deleted or changed a setting that is impacting Mozilla Firefox. When I attempt to start Firefox I get the Crash Reporter "Firefox had a problem & crashed" - after many attempts, I can't get it to restart. I don't know what I am going to do if I have lost all my bookmarks & saved passwords. Please help!

Crash ID: bp-2570327b-ee68-47ec-ae96-74ff40190402

This is what I did to try & fix battery not charging, but in Device Manager I also deleted what I thought was an old network adapter, but can't remember exactly what it was I deleted. I also changed a lot of battery settings, but don't think that should impact Firefox?

Please perform below-shown steps to resolve the issue: Step 01. Click on the Start Button Step 02. Type "Device Manager" in the start search box & open the Device Manager Step 03. Look for Batteries and expand it by click on the + symbol on the left Step 04. Right Click on "Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery" & uninstall Note: This Battery driver will get reinstalled automatically when you restart the Notebook again Step 05. Please Shutdown the Notebook Step 06. Please remove the Battery and unplug the Power Adapter Step 07. Press and Hold the Power Button for full 1 Minute Step 08. Go ahead and put back the Battery and connect the Power Adapter Step 09. Look for "Plugged In Charging" message on the Battery icon

None of my Firefox extensions work on mozilla.org. I checked their whitelists and mozilla.org was not in them. There's no message saying that "this extension does not work here". So, for example, if I right click on an element and click uBlock's "Block element", nothing happens whatsoever. Why is this necessary, and is there a setting to change this?

Examples of extensions that don't work on mozilla.org: Greasemonkey, uBlock, Vimium

Hi,

Q1: Currently the dialog/editor for when you want to save a bookmark spawns under the '...' in the address bar, which is on my screen pretty far to the right side. especially because i prefer to save bookmarks with the menutoolbar>bookmarks menu (file edit view history bookmarks tools help) which is on the right side. (see image) i tried a little in userChrome with #editBMPanel_folderTree {} (which i found floating on the web) but i cannot get it to work. If thats impossible, is it then possible to move the '...' to the right side?

Q2: When the dialog/editor pops up and i leave it untouched and not hovering over it, it will automatically bookmark the page after 5-10~ seconds. how can i disable that?

Thanks in advance, Aapjuh

I think FF has done another update to 66.0.1 (64-bit) OS10.11.6 and now Logging in to secure websites like Santander and Youtube just hang. I use 1Password and Command\ doesn't work on this Mozilla site for instance. Plus as FF is my default browser clicking a WeTransfer link in an email has stopped working and just hangs in FF. My Add ons (which I've been using for years in some cases) are 1Password, Adblock plus, DuckDuck Go, I Don't Care About Cookies and IBM Security Rapport. Out of interest, why does FF need to keep producing such regular updates? It's a great browser but it seems each update comes with its own set of problems.

Managed to get Tabs on Bottom in all previous updates (including FF65). Carried over ToB with FF66.0.2 update, but the whole line of tabs (including vertical separators) has shifted down about 1/3 of its height such that it bleeds into the immediate viewable screen. If the top of that viewable screen is black, for example, the tab titles are almost unreadable. Any advice? Appreciated.

I've followed the steps listed in many places on this forum and the web. (Thanks to jscher2000 for the excellent tech writing and support.) I've renamed all .jsonlz4 in the <Profile_folder>\sessionstore-backups folder. Sessionstore.jsonlz4 was moved from the <Profile_folder>, recovery-backup.jsonlz4 was copied into the <Profile_folder> and renamed Sessionstore.jsonlz4. Tabs don't restore , the Restore Session button is greyed out, and no tabs are listed in the Show tabs dropdown revealed window.

I know recovery-backup.jsonlz4 has the session I want to restore as I've examined it at https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html. I can restore the tabs from the html file that page generates - but I had about 250 tabs open and that will be tedious. Is there any way to force Firefox to restore that session?

I'm running Firefox 66.0.1 64 bit on Windows 10 Professional x64 v1803 updated with all patches.
