Hello

as most FF users, I've run into the issue of having a corrupt places or cookies database file several times in the last 15 years of usage.

I would like to know if Syncing can mitigate the risk of having a corrupt database file ever again? In other words, do FF servers recognize a corrupt file if received from my device? And would it help replacing it with the last intact file received?

Toulouse le 16 octobre 2020. Bonjour, Je rencontre quelques soucis avec l'usage de Firefox 81.0.2. Je suis abonné au journal "www.ladepeche.fr. Je n'arrive plus, depuis 3 mois, à écrire un commentaire ou à lire les commentaires. J'utilise le webmail d'orange, je n'arrive pas à envoyer un fichier joint. Ces défauts n'apparaissent pas avec Microsoft Edge, ou Google Chrome, ou Internet explorer. Thunderbird me permet d'envoyer des fichier joints. Peut-être est-ce dû à la configuration de Firefox? Quelqu'un peut-il me donner une idée en espérant rétablir les fonctions perdues. Je le remercie par avance.

Furthermore, I do not want to be asked if I want this password saved. How can i disable this prompt. Thanks

After an update done on October 13, the button that I clicked on to see the menu list that showed selections like "show all bookmarks' and "other bookmarks" to see my bookmarks suddenly disappeared. The button used to be on the top right hand corner of the page, to the left of the one that is titled 'view history, etc". Now I cannot find the bookmarks. Help. Thanks in advance.

PS - When I changed/edited the post, and redisplayed the question, it did not show my changes but when clicked the "edit this question" link, the edit box contained the changes. That is confusing.

Please Quit The Constant Update Windows until the newer Firefox versions actually work for W7!!!! Remember , W7 computers are not able to get the updates for make whatever is making all site buttons and switches disapprear. To new Firefox is also like Malware, very time consuming to uninstall, and I only can go to the latest full version I had saved. I have been a loyal user and contributer since the beginning, so Please Make Forefox Polite Again!

This is is most annoying thing I've seen with Firefox since I switched from MacOS Safari a few months ago.

The Firefox I-beam cursor used in filling out forms (like "Subject:" or time sheet entries) is almost always too high or too low by a few pixels after I go to the next form entry with a mouse click or tab.

I can't start typing until I move the cursor and click. It's a real productivity killer.

Has anyone had the same problem?

Thanks, Nobska
