My laptop was out of action for quite some time with a u/s hard drive and no money to replace until now. I reloaded Waterfox, logged in and synced, however, I seem to have lost all my bookmarks. Can anybody advise me, please, as to if there is a way to recover them? My backups only go back to 20/05/2022.

Regards,

I am disappointed with the background change with updates. The last time I updated Firefox, I had to do a system recovery to revert back. Then another person expressed concerns with a new version taking control over updating. Why don't you have updates that give you options to choose the background color and who decides if and when you update? I will not update Firefox under these conditions. And I don't want to spend half a day trying to change my background back to white, and especially if would have to do that with every update. Like I have to change my printing options when I do updates! I have been so happy with Firefox for the last 20 yrs. or so, until all of this. Please make this more user friendly and optional.

When I start typing URL's in Firefox, it will only ever suggest the URL so far as the top level domain. For instance, I frequently visit trakt.tv/dashboard. But when I type "tr" into the URL bar, Firefox only ever suggests trakt.tv - I have to manually press the forward arrow key and type in "/d" in order for it to autofill the rest. It doesn't matter how many time I type the full URL in or even the fact that I've deleted all history only visited trakt.tv/dashboard, Firefox will still only autofill trakt.tv

Is there some about:config setting I can change to make Firefox recognize and prioritize specific frequently visited URL's over just top level domains?

I need help in a bad way because I have tried all the directions BigFish has given. I am also 82 years old so I will follow your advice. The login worked for a couple of days but I think Firefox had some updates because computer restarted several times when I wasn't present. When that happens I then find myself having problems with Facebook which is a big nightmare in itself but then I also find I once again am blocked from my game site. Below is what I get each time at the BF game site:

Cookies are required to sign in!

No, we're not talking about chocolate-chip cookies. "Cookies" are little text files sent to your browser to help keep track of users. Your browser is set to not accept cookies, so our system cannot sign you in.

Please follow the instructions below for your browser (starting at the top menu), and then refresh this page:

   Internet Explorer:
   Tools -> Options -> Privacy tab. Reduce the setting to medium.
   Opera:
   Tools -> Preferences -> Advanced tab -> Cookies -> Accept cookies.
   Firefox:
   Tools -> Options -> Privacy -> Cookies tab -> Allow sites to set cookies.
   Safari:
   Safari -> Preferences -> Security -> Accept Cookies: Only from sites you navigate to.
   Netscape:
   Edit -> Preferences -> Privacy & Security -> Cookies -> Allow cookies based on privacy settings (or Allow all cookies).

I have tried my best to get Firefox to allow the cookies or eat them or whatever is needed but apparently I am doing something wrong. The BF tech is now advising me to change to another browser but I am unwilling to do that. I am used to Firefox.

Please, is there anyone who can help me, even walk me through so I don't get this same page again and again?

Gail

P.S. I am not above begging either. I am elderly and very close to tears because I retired from a prototype engineering and developmental lab where I worked with robots and all that. I guess they have turned on me.

Hallo all!

`macOS 12.4` `Firefox 100.0.2 (64 bit)`

  • First Rant:*

How is this possible? Impossible to enter this forum with Firefox. I was obliged to change to Safari, to ask my worries about `Mozilla Firefox`. On the Page to enter the support forums: `Log in / Sign up with Firefox Accounts` I click on `Continue with Firefox Accounts` and wait and wait - nothing happens!

  • Second Rant:*

Impossible to change my profile, with an email-address, which does not exist anymore. So I made a new profile :-(

  • Third Rant:*

Why you need my age in my profile? I consider this a private information

And now to my problem:

entering the webpage www.anti-spiegel.ru the images does not show up anymore. What I tried so far:

+ check javascript-support (enabled) + I emptied the Caches and Cookies + check security settings + reinstall of Firefox + renaming the folder `~/Library/Application Support/Firefox` to `out_Firefox` Result: images are rendered + renaming the folder `~/Library/Application Support/out_Firefox` to `Firefox` Result: images are not rendered

My Question is: are images censored on Russian Webpages?

Hi! First of all, I'd like to congratulate the community on the 100th edition of Firefox.

The subject was selected as "other" because it is not a failure or problem, but a suggestion for improvement related to the information on the volume of cookies and website and cache data stored on disk.

It's been a while since I noticed this and now I present it in writing asking whether or not it is feasible to implement the suggestion below.

In Settings / Privacy and security / Cookies and website data, the amount of “bytes” stored taking up disk space appears.

According to the detailed description on the subject, available at the address

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/clear-cookies-and-site-data-firefox

there is a screen copy illustrating the explanations, for example:

Cookies and website data Your stored cookies, website data and cache are currently taking up 468 MB of disk space. know more

That's the point: "Your cookies, website data and cache stored are currently taking up 468 MB of disk space"

However, this information freezes when reaching 1.0GB.

The exact question: could this information be shown beyond the conditioned threshold until the user decides to clear all data?

Without further ado, I thank you in advance for your attention and, as far as possible, I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely, Ricardo Pinto. Basic Firefox User in Brazil

I am unable to open firefox and am currently typing from edge (yuck). I believe it is crashing on startup, it does not open when I click on the icon either pinned to my taskbar or through the start menu. I have reinstalled the latest version to no avail. If it is crashing on startup then it is not generating a unique crash report each time; my last report is from last night when the problem started, Crash ID: bp-f8bfbf97-971a-464b-8930-aec7e0220530.
