A folder in Bookmarks disappeared AGAIN! This is ridiculous. Every now and then Firefox loses a Bookmark folder. To make matters worse, I can waste a lot of time trying to find it and get no where. I have better things to do than trying to find lost Bookmark folders! How can I easily find the very important Bookmark folder quickly? Undo does not help.

Mozilla Firefox update display

I am using the older version of Mozilla Firefox and do not want to download a new version at the moment. Up to now the Firefox settings offered the choice to 1. " Install updates automatically (recommended)", 2. "check for updates, but ask before installation", and 3. "do not check for updates".

Currently, the third option "do not check for updates" is no longer displayed in the Firefox browser window, and each time Firefox is opened, an update display opens in the upper right corner, which does not close automatically, and it is necessary to close this update display manually.

It should be up to me as a Firefox user to decide if and when I want to update Firefox. It should also be possible to choose whether or not the update display should continue to be shown when Firefox is opened.

Lately I've been having trouble with keeping deleted bookmarks and folders in my bookmarks toolbar from reappearing. The folders in particular have been persistently returning just a minute or two after deleting them. It's also quite noticeable when they come back as I have the 'show bookmarks toolbar' option enabled by default. I've restarted my firefox browser, uninstalled+reinstalled and refreshed and the problem continues to happen. Before trying those methods I tried clearing cache and cookies in settings with no luck either. From what I've noticed it appears to be just a certain set of bookmarks folders which I don't even recall ever adding to the toolbar; some of them look like they are from other device bookmarks I added after syncing. The rest of my bookmarks library seem to working fine however. I looked over the Firefox support articles on the subject as well but couldn't find a fix. Does anyone know something else I could try?

Any help with resolving this annoying occurence would be much appreciated!

Hi!

I just bought a new computer with Windows 10 Pro, and use the Adobe Creative Cloud suite with Adobe Acrobat DC. With my old computer, with Windows 10 Home, I can convert a webpage to PDF with the Adobe plug-in. FIrefox is updated and current.

On my new computer, the plug-in is no where to be found. I have looked in Add ons... Extensions, etc, but it simply is not there.

I did find a place to have PDFs open in Acrobat DC, but where is the plug-in or extension to enable the conversion of a web page to PDF with Adobe Acrobat DC?

Thank you,

I need to transfer my FF profile from a Sony to Lenovo. The hardest challenge should be moving from a Win 7 to a Win 10, but I'm not really worried about that. The huge problem is that for almost a week FF stopped pushing web notifications of any sort of any of the platforms I've authorized. Important (?) note: randomly a couple days ago the notifications started working for no reason, I wasn't doing anything in specific, just working. I took screenshots to see if the debugging - runtime: about:debugging#/runtime/this-firefox#serviceworkers and saw changes here and there but nothing that could shed light as to why this happened. Example: if the notifications working were all running or stopped but saying fetching or not fetching.. there weren't coincidences that IO could find anyway. I shut down the laptop, the next day the notifications were gone again and have been gone ever since. I think yesterday or the day before I downloaded FF again and ran it, but I don't think that did anything. I didn't uninstall it, I wasn't sure if doing so could worsen the problem in such a way I wasn't gonna be able to open FF at all. I know nothing about computers, any suggestion would be appreciated. I don't dare to move nor transfer anything to the new laptop afraid to keep having the same problem or worse in there too, not to mention I'm not familiar with it so I might have an ever harder time finding a work-around that could make something that doesn't work, work. My doubt is: whatever it is that is causing this defect, if I transfer this profile to the new laptop, will it continue to happen in there as well? Is it possible it's something wrong within the profile itself and if so what can I do to transfer all this data to the new laptop? I really need his profile. Is there anything I can do to know where this problem is coming from? Am I causing the problem unwillingly, but most importantly, will this keep happening in the Lenovo? Is there any way to troubleshoot this specific issue to make sure wtv it is, won't be transferred within the profile to the new laptop so it won't fail in there as well? Please let me know if you need more information, any tips would be appreciated

Since update to version 81. a few days ago, my flash player ( adobe ) is not working properly on Facebook Farmville game. Page loads and prompts me for flash - but when page loads up it is way way oversized and unable to get it to normal size. Unable to play the game at all on Firefox browser.

I have spent a few days trying everything I could think of ( including re-installing adobe flash player). I have found no fix.  I now have to use my google chrome browser to play my daily game, of which I am not happy..  don't personally like google. 
Do you have any suggestions ..  or can I go back to the previous version of firefox, where I had no problem with flash player?

I have two windows of firefox open, one on my center monitor and one on my right monitor, though this issue is present no matter the arrangement. One window (the primary one) works as normal, while the other window is broken. The UI works fine, tab bar, menus, URL bar, etc. works fine. The initial tab, the tab that I closed the browser on, shows up and is usable, even if you click links and load new pages, but any other tab shows up as completely white. The tabs still function, as in I can click play on the tab bar and it plays youtube videos, but the items aren't clickable.

Things I've tried:

  • Refreshing tabs: Issue persists
  • Safe mode: Issue persists
  • Dragging an active tab from the functioning window: Shows background color, and occasionally works.
  • Dragging a hibernated tab from the functioning window: Only works if the tab finishes loading before you move it, otherwise the new tab is blank.

I have a search engine hosted locally that I am attempting to use as a search in firefox. I had it working correctly for some time but then had to update the server address. Intially it was at a 192.168.1.x:xxx address. I simply added it as a search engine and it worked fine. The server has since had the IP address changed to a 10.200.x.x:xxxx number. If I remove the old search and go to the new IP address and save that as a search engine it uses the cached or somehow other stored IP address and reverts to the 192.168.1.x address.

Does anyone have an idea of how to clear the cache or otherwise manually edit the address once the search has been added? I have removed every trace I can think of the old address but still whenever it is added it uses the 192 address.

Hi,

is there a way how i can let firefox open a link in new tab from command line for specified profile? Ideally in a way in which it doesn't matter, whether firefox is already running or not

I know I can do something like: firefox --new-tab 'https://www.google.com' this works no matter whether firefox is already running (just add new tab) or it's not (open firefox and add tab)

But what I want to achieve is something like this: firefox -P myProfile --new-tab 'https://www.google.com where myProfile is existing profile.

This works unless firefox is running with that profile (opens new instance). But if it's already running i get the error message (Firefox is already running but it's not responding. To use firefox you must first close the existing firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile). I tried it with/without --no-remote options but it didn't help

I want this for a script that should open pages automatically but not in the default profile. And it should be able to work even if the profile is already running.

Thanks for any advice, Jaymes
