<start rant>I see that all the menus have disappeared from firefox in the top of the window on my PC since a couple of years now. This is such an annoying "improvement".

The worst thing is - it keeps getting more and more difficult to open them with each successive "improvement" you make.

I actually use firefox for my job, not to watch tiktok videos or browse facebook or watch inane people do inane things on instagram.

Heads up , you developers. To be able to "do" things with your freaking software you need to be able to "click" on easily accessible drop-down menus.

So, why don't you give us stupid users the option to always have menus displayed the whole freaking time? Then, if some of us are backward enough to want to click on menus to do stuff, then we can still do that ! </end rant>

My sneaking suspicion is that you guys don't want us to control where we go on the internet at all. You want double click to tell us what we need to see and do and then you all earn $$$$.

Hi. Whenever I open Firefox v.85.0.2 x64 there is a thin orange line around the entire window (see pic.) Is it a setting I've missed, perhaps security (Eset NOD32 banking window has a colored border to indicate it's secure.) Other than that I've no idea why it's there. Appreciate your thoughts.

Hello

I do not understand how firefox sync is supposed to work. I have a desktop and a laptop. The desktop is FF 85 on Linux Mint (I cannot get a later version due to some querk) The laptop is 99 on Windows 10 Both are signed in to sync but my bookmarks were scrambled so I signed out the laptop and cleared the profile, cleaned up the bookmarks in the desktop and to be safe I tried just syncing the tabs, not the bookmarks, by opening the fresh firefox on the laptop and signing in again. In the sidebar under my account icon I clicked "Synchronise now" and the open tabs from my desktop appeared in a list underneath, jumbled up. (I have 2 separate windows open on the desktop with different tabs in each, but this separation was not followed either, there didn’t seem to be any provision for syncing tabs in two separate windows)

But the row of tabs didn’t open, all I can do is open them one by one from the list on the right, this is a slow process as every time I click on a tab in the list the new page opens in the same single tab, not a new one, but the sidebar closes again.

Is this what’s supposed to happen? I was expecting the synced row of tabs to open automatically.

This feature would have been useful as my OS on the desktop, (Linux Mint) tends to crash and to have the on the laptop would be a good backup.

Incidentally the other way I try to back up the lost tabs is to select them all and bookmark them to a new folder which I call “backup” but it seems this doesn’t necessarily duplicate them, which I would prefer, so any of the open tabs that were previously bookmarked risk being removed from the original bookmarked folder, without my noticing, and I am therefore reluctant to delete the backup folder without checking that it doesn’t contain the only bookmark of a page.

When I came back to syncing the bookmarks, how do I avoid them getting scrambled again?

BlogThis! (provided by Blogger/Blogspot/Google) is a javascript that I keep in my bookmark tool bar. Clicking on it opens a popup that includes the title/url of the focus tab for blogging. Cuts down substantially on cut/paste/edit that can impact accuracy.

It stopped working after the latest upgrade - 85.0 (64-bit) - and started throwing a "popup blocked" message in my way.

I have not tested the WordPress version - Press this - which is s similar javascript provided by WordPress for the same function.

Whitelisting the blogger.com url did nothing, and I cannot whitelist every site I might ever want to quote from without turning off popup blocking.

This is beyond annoying.

I get popup blocking. I use in all of my browsers, but for years I have been using FF as my primary browser. You seem determined to push me away. (Making me log into the browser, giving you access to everything I am doing just to ask a support question is also not cool.)

In the most recent update notes, it's said that Firefox "now remembers your preferred location" for bookmarks. However, the location chosen now as my preferred is just some random folder. Is there a way to set the preferred location? Or at least set the browser to do what it did before, which is save to the last-used folder? Thanks!

I tried 3 times to download a software upgrade from a German Vendor. The download failed several times so I contacted the vendor's support and they said try another browser. I downloaded the upgrade with MS Edge but I still strongly prefer Firefox for browsing. I could not find any answers that fit this issue in your help. I have no trouble with other downloads or previous downloads from Celemony. The zip file was about 70 meg, I think I've downloaded bigger files before. No big rush on this but I am curious as to what went wrong.

Hello,

I am quite frustrated. I have been working on solving two issues for a very long time. My brain is a little disabled but I still have to solve all problems myself. Please help me if you can.  The issues are:

1. with settings on password remembrance. I get logged out of many websites that claim that everything is right with their set up. On some websites I am not getting logged out.

 The settings I have tried in Firefox (latest version both on Windows 10 and on Android 9) has been "never clear cookies" , "clear cookies after each session" with exceptions for all the current websites.  I have allowed everything.  If this issue derives from the websites setup they would have had many more complains than mine. That´s why I have to turn to Mozilla. 

2. I run Firefox on windows 10 and on Android. Isn´t the browser meant to sync on website content like the above mentioned ? Logins and other data left on each websites from previous login ?

If I get help from the forum I will definitely donate to Mozilla. /Gechen

I installed Firefox onto my third device, and it synced my data, including my extensions. The only thing is, they don't show up in my tool bar like they do on my other devices. I tried several different things, but the icons for the extensions don't even show up in the customization tab. They don't autofill or work at all, despite saying that they are installed and active.
