I recently lost my firefox configuration and now see the Amazon.DE search engine rather than Amazon.com. I have no idea why...

I followed assorted support guides but haven't been able to add the Amazon.com search engine: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/add-or-remove-search-engine-firefox#w_add-search-engines

1) I clicked the link "find more search engines": https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search-engines/. This took me to a generic list of extensions and didn't find an official amazon search option for the search bar. Those suggested had few downloads and weren't vetted by mozilla

2) I visited Amazon.com and then clicked the magnifying glass with the green plus sign in the search bar. Then tried to add amazon.com as a search engine but got this error:

Firefox could not download the search plugin from: https://d2lo25i6d3q8zm.cloudfront.net/browser-plugins/AmazonSearchSuggestionsOSD.Firefox.xml

Can someone explain how to get this working again; I just want the normal amazon.com search in the search bar

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:

I must use the magnifier that came with Windows or I cannot read the screen. All was fine until Firefox updated. Now, when I try to use the magnifier, Firefox and all the sites I am using freeze. The entire screen fades out, and an hour glass shows up. But nothing happens after that. I have to go to the task manager and close Firefox, then start it up again.

I checked for Windows updates and everything is current. I am using Windows 10.

How can I fix this?

I am using Firefox 122.0.1, Windows 11 with all latest updates. Recently my HP Laptop has been slow to respond. I rebooted and opened task manager. I started Firefox and it was using about 1500 MB of memory. I closed some tabs to try to recover some memory. However, Firefox kept taking more, more and more. After 15 minutes, it was at 10,000 MB and climbing, and my system was using 99% of memory. I don't believe Firefox did this in the past and this is clearly not working properly. Any ideas?

I am experiencing issues with my ChatGPT subscription while using it on the Firefox browser. Despite having an active subscription with access to ChatGPT-4, the interface only shows an 'Upgrade' option instead of the 'Refer a Friend' feature, which suggests that my subscription isn't being recognized properly. Additionally, whenever I try to send a message in the chat, I receive an error stating, 'Our systems have detected unusual activity from your system. Please try again later.' I haven't encountered these issues on other browsers. Could you please provide assistance or guidance on how to resolve these problems with Firefox?"

I have tried to clear the cache, and relogin, does not work...

I am wondering if this is an issue of Firefox or ChatGPT, any resolution on this?

Since v117 update I noticed pages scroll way more. With one scroll they do double the amount of lines then previously. I thought I was seeing things, so I reinstalled Firefox v116.0 to make sure and confirmed it was scrolling less with the previous version. I found a setting "mousewheel.system_scroll_override.enabled" set to 'true' by default. Switching to 'false' fixes the scroll amount, but when I was back on v116.0 I checked that setting there and it was also set to 'true' by default, yet no double scrolling. So I have no idea what could cause this issue. Maybe something was 'fixed' with this setting and now it's applied correctly? Or should nothing change with scroll amount when updating from 116 to 117?

For context, I accidentally made my root D: folder into the downloads folder and during this time I was still able to download using firefox. But when I finally changed the folder to my default one, firefox stopped being able to download anything larger than 1gb files. I can still download small images but anything larger than that I can't download. Else, it would only just show "Failed" in the downloads bar.

I've tried: 1. Changing the download location

>Also tried reindicating my download location

2. Turned off dangerous downloads 3. Putting an exception to the sites I try download from 4. Clearing the downloads 5. Tried troubleshooting mode 6. Restarting my computer 7. Restarting Firefox

I can't download on firefox but the same files I can download on Chrome.

I have Yahoo as my home page and usually search from it starting out. I noticed, however, after the last update or two in the last week that when I hit search, it opens the search results in a new tab. It didn't use to do this, but I can't find any Firefox option to make the searches stay in the existing tab. Can anyone help with this? I don't think it's Yahoo's settings, because I'm not signed into it. It seems like the Firefox update created this new behavior.

Since yesterday I can't access multiple websites like Spotify, Reddit, Google Drive etc on my desktop computer anymore. I don't know why and I didn't change anything over night. It also works fine in Microsoft Edge.

Reddit shows the "whoa there, pardner" error, spotify shows 403 error, Google Drive says my browser (Firefox 120.0) isn't supported and others are simply unavailable. At the same time Google looks off and Twitch is just a huge loading screen.

I cleared all the data (cookies/cache), but that didn't help.

I had this reddit error a few weeks ago already, but it disappeared on its own. However it was only reddit that was affected.

Fixed - After A Bookmarks' Library [Restore] Function, Tag Bookmark Names & Folders Show Duplicated

Something went wrong w/ the mouse, some of my tags disappeared & wasn't able to recover them via Ctrl+Z, so I decided to perform my 1st [Restore] (never had to do 1 b… (funda kabanzi)

Something went wrong w/ the mouse, some of my tags disappeared & wasn't able to recover them via Ctrl+Z, so I decided to perform my 1st [Restore] (never had to do 1 before), since I had just recently done an [Export Bookmarks] & a [Backup]. Everything seems to have gone Ok, except that for every tag, all of the bookmarks listed under the [Name] column are duplicated. When I right-click & [Show In Folder], they both show in the same folder. When going onto their folder, they are only shown once, so there are no duplicates there. When I attempt to [Delete] 1 of the 2 duplicate entries they both get [Deleted], so I can only conclude that they are 1 in the same. But the question remains, "How can I fix this duplicate condition?"

Another related & interesting behavior is that, from any bookmark folder where you can clearly see there are no duplicated bookmarks, when you do a [Search] from the top-right-hand search-box, the "results" are also "duplicated", although you might need to sort them by clicking on the [Name] column control. So, I can go to any bookmark folder & clearly see that there are no duplicate bookmarks, but when you do a [Search], that's when you get duplicate entries. That leads me to believe that this is the result of the [Search] function, & thus for some odd reason the [Search] is generating "duplicate entries". And then perhaps, both the [Tag]s & the [Search] function are related.

Also, this "duplication" does not happen on newer added bookmarks, after the [Restore] was executed, & it's only a phenomenon that affects those bookmarks that were saved by the Bookmarks' Library [Backup] function, & thus this anomaly was introduced by the [Backup].

Actually, I just realized the problem is more complicated than I thought. The reason any search results in "duplicate bookmarks" is because there are 2 sets of folders, 1 set above the other, & if you don't scroll down all the way you won't see it. So that's why there are actually "2 Sets Of Bookmarks", because there are "2 Sets Of Folders", 1 above the other. The problem is that when you delete any "Duplicate Bookmark" you delete them both, & not just 1 of the 2 bookmarks.

I wonder if it would work, to "Delete All Bookmarks" & then do a [Restore]?

Could "Mozilla Support" answer that?

Don't know why every time I attempt to [Post A Reply] & get an "Error",... So I'm going to post my reply right here,...

Fix: (2024-02-19) Of course, I did some testing before I concluded what was the best approach, but since I noticed all of the "Bookmarks Folders" were duplicated under [Bookmarks Menu], an easy fix is to go to the "bottom duplicated folder", right on top of the [Other Bookmarks] folder, & "Select It" (by clicking on it) & [Delete] it (w/ the [Delete] key on your keyboard). Do this 1 by 1, until you reach the "bottom folder" of the bookmarks' folder you certainly don't want to delete. Close Firefox & then reopen it - to make sure Firefox takes care of any garbage-collection. Then do your Bookmarks' Library [Export Bookmarks To HTML] followed by a [Backup], & you are good to go.

Actually, I don't know what introduced the error. Don't know if it was Firefox's [Restore] function, or it could have been me (by accident) w/ some "unnoticed & unexpected" move of the mouse/trackball, which accidentally duplicated all of the folders w/o me noticing, & that is why all of the "Bookmarks" were "duplicated".

Happy Firefox Browsing,...

I have "combined task bar buttons and hide labels" set to NEVER yet firefox has a weird issue that no other open program has. I have firefox pinned to my taskbar (image 1.) When I click it (image 2) it's supposed to expand into a full size tab but it stays as just an icon.

But when I right click and open taskbar settings, firefox remembers that I have combine task bar set to off and correctly expands into a full tab (image 3.) I'm not sure if this is a firefox issue or a general windows issue. Thanks for any info anyone can provide.

Hi, Folks. When I open "manage bookmarks" (Library), why does it always open at "other bookmarks"? This is at the very bottom of the alphabetical list (and empty) so I always have to scroll back up to the top. I've got a lot of bookmarks, so this is extremely irritating. How do I change this? I've searched for an answer. The only likely solutions suggest removing the "other bookmarks" folder, but the description of how to do that doesn't work. Nowhere can I find a "remove other bookmarks" option. And the delete option is greyed out.

I don't necessarily need to hide or remove it, as long as I can get the bookmarks manager/Library to open at the top, ie. "Bookmarks Menu".
