Hello,

I'm trying to sort bookmark folders by date. I followed some threads on-line, but its not saving. Am I missing something?

I'm going to Manage Bookmarks (see screenshot) i'm able to select a folder and click Views and it defaulted to 'unsorted' I select Sort by Added and the latest bookmarks in this area sort by latest on the TOP first. Perfect!

I exit out check bookmarks and they are still sorted in the reverse... meaning latest bookmark is still at the bottom and my very first bookmark in this folder is at the top.

Maybe its not designed this way? if so I don't see the reason to go under Managed Bookmarks and sort by anything if its not going to save that way.

Moral of the story trying to sort by date added in any folder not name (which is only thing I see when right clicking on any folder). I want latest saved bookmarks sorted from TOP down not latest's starting at the bottom.

Thanks

I'm buying a new computer and I'm wondering is there a method/procedure that I can use to transfer the entire FF browser including settings, extensions, bookmarks, and passwords without having to reinstall all those items individually? I know I can save and import bookmarks but what about everything else? I look forward to anyone comments. Thanks

I can't login to the NY Times website using Firefox. I'm sure I'm using the correct password because I can log in using a different browser. I don't save passwords in Firefox. I enter them manually or use a password manager. As I said, I'm certain I'm using a valid password. I've cleared the cookies and all of the items under History on the Settings page. When I close Firefox, nothing is saved. When I contact NYT customer service, I was informed that they've had a lot of requests for assistance from Firefox users, and nothing was out of order with those users' NYT login; the problem was with Firefox.

Please advise.

I have Firefox version 97.0.2 (64 bit) for Windows. Lately, every time I start up the browser, it's trying to install an update. I haven't had this problem before with Firefox (and I've been using it for several years now). Is there something I need to do to stop this?

Hello everyone.

  I have a problem with some websites (most of the text characters are not displaying properly or are missing), when I try to load them using Firefox (problem remains, using Chrome, but Firefox is my main browser). The problem seems to be with greek websites (only with pop-up cookies settings) or greek language versions of websites, but the strange thing is that the problem is almost the same with facebook homepage in english and in greek language (!). 
  I have tried to search for similar problems and suggested solutions on the internet, but I still can't figure out the cause of my problem and haven't solved it yet. I have followed [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-extensions-themes-to-fi...] solution, running Firefox in Troubleshoot mode, which resolves the problem temporarily, but not permanently. According to the above solution, "the likely cause is an extension, theme or hardware acceleration", but when I follow every step to determine which one of these (extension, theme or hardware acceleration) is the problem, all of these prove to work properly. 
  Therefore, any suggestions would be much appreciated.

I have noticed recently that every week or so my Firefox browser will randomly change my homepage directory to the landing page / search for MSN, which is baffling, since it is obtrusive and anti-Mozilla to me.

If y'all are sneaking it in for that sweet ad revenue, I understand, but I would donate to avoid this issue.

Otherwise Firefox / Thunderbird are awesome, and I appreciate all that you do!

Cheers, Elliot

Hi, a long-standing problem is this: When Firefox is maximized in one monitor (the lowest one on my setup), the top of the Firefox window is leaked into the upper monitors by 10 pixels (if I see it correctly).

This only happens in the default setting of "Title bar" = unchecked (in the Customize Firefox settings). If "Title bar" is checked, then the window shrinks a little to fit the current monitor (just like a maximized window should be).

Is there a way to get Firefox to stay within the monitor limits when maximized even if Title bar is disabled?

Thunderbird does the same, but I guess they are using same components inside. No other programs have this problem.

Windows 10 21H2, using 175% or 100% display scaling, depending on the monitor (they are all 2560x1440 but the lower one is 14" (with 175% scaling) and the upper monitors are 27" (with 100% scaling)).

(The image upload does not seem to work, I'll send this anyway and try to add the screenshots in a reply.)

I have strange issue. I cannot see Minimise, Restore and Close button on my Gmail page many times. Not happening always but many times. Attached the screenshot for your ref. I use Win7 at home and Win 10 at the work, both places have the same problem. Both FF browsers are Synced. Even I cannot see those buttons when I click at those places it responds accordingly. So I guess there is some button visualization problem. Please help. Thank you. Darshan.

Seemingly randomly, when opening a new tab, FF freezes up completely.

This has only started happening today. After starting my PC, I opened up FF. Upon opening Dicord in a tab (3rd tab, YouTube and Twitter were previous and still open) and clicking on it while loading, it froze. A white line appeared at the top, and FF overlapped, and thus hid, my task bar. Waiting (5 min) did nothing, so I clicked and the "... is not responding" dialogue popped up, and I closed it.

Upon starting again, it restored the tabs that were previously open. I could swap between use them normally. However, when I opened a link in a new tab, it froze again.

After another restart, not even the new empty tab would load, freezing again, and every try afterwards.

Starting in troubleshooting mode or reseting did nothing (though I may not have waited long enough, an 'Old Firefox Data' folder was created and filled, but no window opened). I ran the installer again, which resulted in me having to redo some Addon settings, but worked fine for a while (~1h maybe?), before freezing again. A PC restart fixed it again for a longer while, but then it happened again, this time while trying to write this. Additionally, there was a freeze while clicking into the Subject field here, after which the even the new tabs froze again.

Another PC restart seems to have allowed me to use FF again, while I tipped this on my phone.

Hardware acceleration is off, History deletes every time I close FF, Addons on or off don't seem to matter. CPU and RAM aren't even near fully used. Drivers are up to date, Windows as well. (Running a System File Check right now, as I have upgraded to Win10 only a few days ago, although I was able to use FF during those days without issue, and the PC has been shut down in between as well. The SFC said it found and repaired files, though it didnt say anything other than that, so that might just be a "We found no issues and fixed those." translation kinda thing.)

I really don't know what else to do.

I have installed the Media Feature Pack already and cleaned the cookie cache and all of the history and updated the blockers and disabled all the plugins (including the theme) and completely reinstall the whole browser while not logging into my account and it still doesn't work. But it has no problem in Troubleshoot mode or if I open it in Internet Explorer.

The video bar, settings, fullscreen mode, all comes up, but the video is stuck in a loop of loading forever. Never stopping and playing the video, just loading and the circle just rotating.

Hi,

Something seems to be happening with my Gmail. After some time, it stops updating. When attempting to reload the page, no requests are even sent from Firefox. When attempting to load it in a new tab, I get an endless loading sign but no indication a request is actually being sent (no request in network tab, no domain in the bottom corners as happens when loading a page).

All other Google products load correctly.

The solutions I've found are to log out of Google and log back in or clear cache/cookies/etc for Google. However, after some time this issue pops up again.

I've already rebooted the machine, done latest update, cleared site cache etc etc etc. and this keeps happening.
