I recently migrated from Chrome to Firefox on my Mac and successfully imported all data, bookmarks etc. However I cannot figure out how to ADD a new bookmark to an existing folder. Every page I read about bookmarking fails to show how this is done. In Chrome its simple since the drop down menu allows the user to view every folder, but in Firefox I don't see how to do this. Furthermore, when I go to Bookmarks>Manage bookmarks I don't see any of my folders..PLEASE show me an EASY way to do this. Thank you

How can I completely remove the tab bar and regain 3/4 of an inch of screen space. It would be nice if Mozilla would just have a on/off button for it. I've tried creating a folder called Chrome within my Firefox Profile folder. I then created a text file within that folder and named it userChrome.css. I put this string in the text file #tabbrowser-tabs { visibility: collapse !important; } This did not work, does anyone know the best method for getting rid of the annoying tab bar?

Thank you

On Google Docs, the very useful shortcut "Alt+/" for executing menu actions by name exists, similar M-x in Emacs or Ctrl+Shift+A in PyCharm or Ctrl+Shift+P in VS Code.

On a German keyboard, there is no "/" key. In Chrome the hotkey "Alt+#" works instead. In Firefox, it does not.

This hotkey is particularly important, because it gives quick access to menu actions, that have no hotkey assigned, or for which the hotkey does not work on the current layout.

Is there something I can do to make it work?

Note. Based on what I know, I cannot tell if this is an issue with Firefox not sending the Alt+# key correctly, a special feature of Chrome that isn't present in Firefox, or a cross-browser compatibility issue of Google Docs, that should be blamed on Google Docs and not Firefox.

Firefox 114.0.2 (64-bit), running on Open Suse 15.3, 64 bit.

When using the Export Logins feature to create a .csv file, the last few fields don't seem to translate into any known date-stamp format in Excel. The data seems to have relative chronological value, but I can't make sense of it in a spreadsheet.

Can a developer check this and modify the output of those fields so it's more compatible?

When using Noto Sans Egyptian Hieroglyphics font and writing-mode: vertical-lr; the characters appear shifted up by ~10%, thus appearing partially outside their parent element. All hieroglyphics do this (here using (U+13000)), but only with Noto font.

Tested on versions 114.0.2 and 79.0esr, on different machines, new installs, old installs, even the mobile version. Chromium-based browsers don't have the issue. Images show character inside a div (with borders), the same character highlighted, and Chrome screenshot for comparison. TO REPRODUCE just import and set Noto Sans Egyptian Hieroglyphics and writing-mode: vertical-lr/vertical-rl/tb/tb-rl. A bordered div around the characters might be useful.

Up until 2 weeks ago (so middle of June 2023) I had no issues with Firefox. However, since then I cannot open any 'GoogleAds' suggestions/links when searching products etc on my Acer Aspire Laptop (2023)?

I have Windows 11, Google is my nominated browser and my antivirus program is the same as when it was working OK.etc?

Non GoodleAds links, seem to work fine

As I don't know the exact date accessing the links/suggestions stopped working, I have no idea as to whether any Windows update has caused the issue with Firefox?

I can find my way round a computer, but I am not computer technically minded.

Any help would be appreciated as I am disabled and bedridden, so the internet is my key to the world.

Why is there not a simple means to take a link and pin it as a tile on my home page? I've expanded the number of rows displayed which as an odd history of my browsing, yet the latest links I've visited are not there - meaning the link to the location I would like to pin. Seriously, the entries in the rows (other than previously pinned links) is a hodgepodge. It might be useful if there was some evident logic to the items included. It is disappointing the number of times this question has been posed and the "answer" is to display more rows. Similarly disappointing - an old knowledge base article that says to click the 3 dot icon next to address bar for Firefox on android - would have been handy had such a control appeared in the latest version of Firefox I'm running on my Mac.

Hail all:

Now, I have 2 Google accounts: My private one, and a Corporate Account, used for work. I always signed out of my normal window from the active account to the Corporate Account and vice versa, depending on which I needed to check. A common occurrence for many people.

But I noticed long ago, that in Private Window ... I seem to be signed out, opening Google in it. I use Private Window to avoid unnecessary clutter from sites dropping their stuff on my Temp folder. I hate clutter ... severe Asperger's.

I was thinking ... if I keep my private Google Mail on the prime non-Private window, can I sign in while this is open (and stays open) into my Corporate account in my Private Window?

If so, this would save me quite a bit of hassle, having to log out several times a day from my main, private account/mail and into the Corporate account mail, and when done vice versa to me private account mail.

Thank you.

I use multiple Firefox profiles. I would like an EASY way to see the name of the Firefox profile somewhere on the screen. The attached image shows a theme I created which shows the name of the profile on the menu bar. I forgot exactly how I did it, but it involved typing this in a Word document, taking a screenshot and turning it into a jpeg, crop the image, upload it as a theme, then test it. Repeated several times until I got it to work.

I don't need or want fancy graphics here. I just need the name of the Firefox profile to appear somewhere in the window. In my fantasy world, there would be an option to include this name in the window Title bar.

When I go to Manage Bookmarks, select that folder, and use the Views/Sort/Sort by Name.A-Z sort order, the subfolders aren't shown in alpha order. Any new subfolders I create end up at the bottom, listed after the page bookmarks.

Is there any way to get all the subfolders to sort properly?

I am using Firefox 114.0.2 address bar only, no search bar. I do not remember when it was happened, but today when I want to copy and paste page address I found out that address bar did not display the page address as previous version, just display the words I searched as a search bar (if the search bar is enabled, and typed in search bar then push enter, address bar will display address of search result page, and search bar will keep displaying the words in it). I attached my screenshot below. Using another tab and "switch to tab" feature by Firefox, I found out the page address. In my screenshot, I typed "test" and using Google to search (I also tried Bing, Wikipedia and more and all of them have the same problem with their owned link) and the page address should be "https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=test" but even I paste this link into the address bar, it will only display "test" like the pic. I think it is a trim feature but I do not which preference I should edit in about:config. I have set "browser.urlbar.trimURLs" to false for displaying http and www, but it is not work this time.
