I've been using Firefox for years most recently on a Windows machine but I've just switched back to a Mac. I'm having issues with bookmarks and I'm doing what I've always done but now am having a couple issues so I don't know if it is due to switching systems or if I have an issue.

In any case... I like my bookmarks in the toolbar so that is where I aim to put them. I exported my bookmarks from my PC, imported the file and thought I was fine but now I see that not all of the bookmarks are there in the toolbar, most are but not all. Then when I check the recently bookmarked, the missing ones are listed among the others but do not appear where I can find them.

Then I exported from my work PC to a file as before, imported the file and can not find any of them anywhere, keep trying and can't find them.

And now while on a page I click the blue star as I always have, have it pointed to the toolbar folder, click done, check the toolbar and not there. Keep trying and during the process I see an option to remove 3 bookmarks next to option DONE, so I suspect it is something I'm not understanding but on my PC I've never had issues with this.

Hi there,

I just moved to another notebook after the past one dead, and I have to recover my past addons from an external hdd. I just found all the .xpi files that contain any single add-on, but it's not clear to me how should I manage them so that Firefox will instantly recognize the addons. Can you please help me?

Thank you

Hi,

I'm unable to access my Firefox account as I can't seem to find my recovery code / I switched phones.

I understand that I can't get my old account back, no biggie - not bothered about the sync data.

I would however prefer to keep the email address, as I only have 1 email that I use. Creating a new one just for Firefox seems unnecessary.

Is there anyway I can have the existing account purged so I can re-create under the same email? I can easily prove ownership of the email account (loads of old emails from Firefox etc) The current password is even still stored in my password manager.

Thanks,

I have tried everything I can think of and everything I have been told on how to fix this. I finally went back to Safari.

Firefox 79.0 (64bit).

I sat today and watched Firefox with ActivityMonitor running and would go from website to website seeing how often Firefox would freeze the entire mac up. I thought it was just the mouse that was being frozen, nope, it is the entire mac. Everything stops when this freeze occurs. Today I experienced the longest freezes. One lasted over 20 seconds.

I will keep my eye on updates to see if this problem gets fixed. Until then, back to Safari :-(

I have used Firefox on my Mac (Catalina 10.15.6) for 3 years. Yesterday I got a message: 'The application “Firefox.app” can’t be opened.' Since then I have repeatedly deleted Firefox and all it's associated files; downloaded ver 79 and the results have been the same. So I went to Beta ver 80 and got the same results. As a user of Firefox since it was introduced as Mozilla, I find everything else unsatisfactory and hope someone can help

I'm trying to switch from opera to Firefox, as title says, Firefox is slow when live commenting is enabled on bilibili.com when watching videos, it gets worse if you play video in full-screen mode, and CPU is about 15% higher than opera even not in full-screen.

I've tested on other two similar website: douyu.com and huya.com , turns out the issue is only with bilibili.com, I found that the live comment feature is implemented by canvas on bilibili.com while the other two sites uses css3 instead, and I simply tested canvas benchmark with benchmark1 and benchmark2 and the result conforms my guess -- opera performs much better than Firefox.

I've tried toggle hardware acceleration and safe mode, no significant improvement observed

Opening links in any desktop app to open up in Nightly is broken for me since a few months, I didn't really change anything on my side. The bug report so far has been ignored, and this is a pretty major breakage. Does anyone have an idea what I could check out on my system to get this fixed or provide info for the bug so that somebody actually looks at it? EDIT: Please note Nightly initially launches fine, SO THERE IS NO PROBLEM OPENING THE PROFILE. There is also no problem with a previous instance being stuck preventing the new one from launching - I don't want to launch a new instance, I want to open a link, and I can interact with the running instance just fine and it's definitely not stuck.

This is what I get 50% of the time I try to open a link:

"Close Firefox" "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To use Firefox, you must first close the existing Firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile."

(While firefox is perfectly happily running.)

xdg-open https://same-url-iclicked

works. So that makes it even weirder. My system is a boring Fedora 32 desktop, and I didn't change anything I could think of when this suddenly broke.

Here is my two months old ticket that so far went ignored: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1645038

Colors are distorted in MP4 video as you can see in the attached screenshot. The distorted colors impact video on many sites including yourlearning.ibm.com, webex.com, twitter.com, mlb.com, etc. They do not impact youtube.com which displays video correctly. My Firefox version is 68.10.0esr (64-bit) and my OS is RHEL 7.8, kernel version 3.10.0-1127.13.1.el7.x86_64, Gnome Version 3.28.2

I have tried running in safe mode but the issue persists.

How do get Firefox to display MP4 video with correct colors?

This is on Windows 10 Home Edition 64-bit Since latest update to version 79.0 (64-bit), Firefox is shutting itself down automatically whenever I click to close an active tab and there is only one extra tab open that is an empty “Private Browsing” tab. Before the latest update to version 79.0 (64-bit), Firefox did not shut itself down automatically. The blank “Private Browsing” tab would remain open and Firefox would keep running normally. Thanks for any help.

Hey, I'm using the restore previous session feature. Its really helpful, but I assume since the last update it is not working properly. Whenever I use the private firefox browser (window) parallel to the normal one (window) and close the normal browser before the private one, my last active session of the normal browser is not restored.

When I close the private firefox window before the normal firefox browser window everything works fine with restoring the tabs.

Any way around? And please fix this annoying bug. Thanks!

The newest version of Firefox, 79, is the only one that's been doing this. Every time I power up the browser, I try clicking my Twitter option, either in the bookmark bar or in the highlights, if Twitter has cookies, it won't work unless I click it a second time. If I remove the cookies, it works the first time again, but will revert to not working the first time after power up after browsing Twitter even once.

Hi

I want to be able to stop autofill for a single website but keep it on for everything else.

I run a website that means I have to input a lot of data into boxes and Firefox annoyingly wants to auto fill every box meaning the data gets messed up from time to time.

Is there anyway to disable it for single sites?

Thanks

I can start a youtube video but the mouse will not click on "skip ads" or pause the video or move the video to different times within the video. The same thing happens on other sites, for example I can click on walmart.com and then all other clicks will not function cannot proceed any further within the site. I have uninstalled/reinstalled firefox, I have tried safe mode and I have disabled all add ons. I use the default theme and nothing works. This was not an issue prior to the most recent update. The only way for me to post this is via Edge and edge is crappy.
