I restored Firefox, which left a folder named "Old Firefox Data" on my desktop.

How do I delete it? I can't!

Even if I remove the "read only" property and remove the "deny delete" setting, the damn thing won't go away!

How.Do.I.Kill.The.Folder???

I don't seem to remember Chrome or even Edge making the decision to clutter my Desktop indefinitely for no reason at all...

A very important parent Bookmark folder disappeared again!

When I do a Search, I can find Bookmarks that are in the Parent Bookmarks folder but as I have reported before, the HUGE issue is that there is NO way to find where the parent Bookmarks folder or the Bookmarks in the parent Bookmarks folder using the Search function! How can I find the parent Bookmarks folder and where the Bookmarks are that were in the Parent Bookmarks folder?

I have added many Bookmarks since yesterday so I do not want to try to do a Restore.

I need to find the Bookmarks that disappeared soon.

HI,

Using Firefox ver 96.0.2 (64 bit) Windows 8.1

When starting up Firefox it suddenly has started to search for previous sites but cannot find them. Always before it always started up with selected homepage. I have checked my settings and the only one that from my understanding could have any effect on this is

- Open previous windows and tabs

which I have not selected.

On another computer with windows 11 it works fine.

Best Regards Marten

Why am I getting this PR-CONNECt-RESET-ERROR message when try to go to secure websites before the latest Firefox update?

How can I correct it or should I change my permissions to allow access to these sites, several which are .gov?

6 hours ago, I shut down my Windows 10 laptop to buy lunch.

1 hour later, I turned on my laptop. But then Firefox stopped loading any tabs. My Internet — my other browsers like Chrome and Edge — have all been working perfectly. See below — Firefox in "Troubleshoot Mode" works perfectly!

Therefore, is one of my ≥ 30 Add Ons the glitch? How can I most productively suss out which Add On, without disabling each of my ≥ 30 Add Ons singly?

When I open Firefox, I'm getting ** 12 ** instances of Firefox opening up and spamming the hell out of my hard drive (even slowing down other processes), even without opening a page (I have mine set to not open any pages on loading Firefox). This is annoying and intolerable. I have looked around to find a workaround, but the only post was from last year, and gives instructions to turn off recommended settings, then says to set Firefox instances to 1, where there is no way to do that in that section on the version I'm running. So, how do I fix this? I want the hard drive spamming stopped.

Ever since I updated to Firefox 96, I have been receiving the error message "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site." at times. Refreshing does help. This did not seem to happen with Firefox 95. I am currently on Firefox 96.0.2. I tried restarting the computer, tried refreshing Firefox, tried disabling hardware acceleration, etc., and the issue still persists.

Dear Firefox community,

How can I limit the volume of audio played by Firefox so that users who stupidly create super loud audio in thier video or stream do not hurt my ear drums?

This is a simple question but it seems like nobody knows the answer to it.

I did try to find a limiter extension but all I found was a compressor and it did nothing but bring the noise floor up and make the audio very noisy.

If firefox does not have an inate Limiter, is it possible to use a VST limiter somehow?

Please help my ears.

Musical regards

Ronnie

When I have a handful of tabs open, they start scrolling off-screen, despite the fact that there is plenty of room on the tab bar. In fact, tabs never seem to populate the right 50% of the tab bar. I have found plenty of advice about how to set minimum and maximum sizes for the tabs themselves, but that is not my problem. I want to be able to see all of my tabs when there is plenty of room to show them. Any way to solve this?

Hopefully this is the appropriate place to ask. Javascript just doesn't seem to work for temporary extensions. When I couldn't get my own extension to work, I tried to follow the tutorial in "Your second extension" (link) and it also just doesn't work. HTML and CSS load just fine but it's none functional. I can't even get a simple log out to console.

I just updated to Windows 11 a few days ago. Is it possible there is some setting I changed a long time ago that is causing this behavior?
