I use the sidebar to see my bookmarks on the left side of the screen. When using the Search bookmarks box there used to be an X on the right side to clear the search setting. That X is now gone which means I now have to close & reopen Bookmarks to clear the box. I believe this issue started with version 93 but I can't say for sure if it worked in version 92.

Today, October 9th, Firefox update on my laptop and everything functions well except when I try to use the search pages for either Google or Bing. The pages https://www.google.com/ and https://www.bing.com both load without issue but when I attempt to search for ANYTHING there is just the dot moving left to right in the tab title with no results coming back on either.

All other sites appear to be running and loading fine and the issue seems to be with just the search pages that I mentioned. Both sites work fine with Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge.

The "right click" search google function also has the same results. A blank tab opens with just the left to right dot on the tab title.

How can this be fixed? I don't want to have to go to using a different browser and of course having the ability to search is essential.

Please advise.

Hiya I want to be warned when quitting multiple tabs BUT I do not want the session restored when opening again. This used to be possible but now in Settings if I untick Restore previous session even though Warn you when quitting the browser is ticked it does not give a warning when I quit Firefox. So this means if its unticked then if I accidently hit the close button I loose all the open tabs in firefox. If ticked I have to close all the tabs manually each time I close firefox to prevent thm opening when I start Firefox again. Im on Windows 10 Pro 21H1 with Firefox 93.0 any idea if I can change this behaviour in the advanced prefs? (about:config) thanks for any insights A

Hello - Firefox Bookmarks are wonderfully intuitive and hardly need the well written instructions. However, in Manage Bookmarks, I search and find the Bookmark I want but can't see or find which folder it's in. Thus I can't sort it or move it to another folder. A column in search results showing Folder would be fabulous!

Tried to reply to your email. It has not return. Here is a copy of report you requested. It is different from what you sent me.

> Task: invalidateCaches - Unable to invalidate caches > Task: checkCoherence - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: expire - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: originFrecencyStats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: vacuum - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: stats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: _refreshUI - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task.

I still have no bookmarks. I have restarted the computer a number of times. I also renamed the places.sqlite adding a 1 after places as it said in other directions. I have also refreshed.

Yesterday, I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled after receipt of your response. It said all cookies, history, bookmarks etc transferred successfully. However, I keep getting the message “ and Bookmarks and history systems will not be functional because one of Firefox’s file is in use by another application. Some security software can cause the problem. I use McAfee, I’ve always used it. I have not changed it.

I did not do anything with favicon file as I don’t know what to do, I understand you can delete that. If there is a list of more than one, then what do I do.

As I indicated, I an NOT a technical person.

Please advise.

Thanks.

hi,

Maybe someone had the same problem, I use two security option outside of Firefox: 1. /etc/hosts file, all the site that I do not want to allow my machine to interact with; source: https://github.com/StevenBlack/ 2. VPNs anti tracking scripts

I use a mac, Mac OS 11.6 Firefox 93.0


With all the two security option enabled, Safari works fine, TOR works fine, Firefox has massive issues with loading pages speed. Some of the Firefox settings: Network Settings: the DNS over HTTPS is OFF, as I am using a VPN Privacy and Security: set to standard, but there is no difference is loading speed when switching to strict Extensions: I use 1password, multi account containers and user agent switcher; no difference is loading speed if I disable or remove all extensions

Any idea why is Firefox loading page speed effected?

Many Thanks Michael

How to remove (for good) FF message window after screenshot

After I take a screenshot -- using the very handy FF command that now sits on my address bar -- a message box opens in the bottom right of the screen that says, Duh, "your shot was copied to the clipboard" and then gives instructions for pasting it. Although that seems to be fairly elemental information that is unnecessary, even if there is a good reason to keep it, must that message window always be in the same position? That is really a problem as it obscures one's ability to navigate on a page upon which he may be working. Look at the attachment. The FF window is covering the location where I want to put my cursor to work on that page that is in the background. In this case, I wanted to make sure the cursor was positioned in a different place for another screenshot I might put there (below the existing one).

Since I'm familiar with pasting or copying the screenshot and how to do that before this window opens, how can I remove for all screenshots, now and in the future, this window opening?

Thank you.
