It is not unusual for me to lose my favorites on BOTH, the Firefox homepage and on the "SpeedDial 2" app. I keep having to reenter my favorites, only for it to happen again, not long after.

As an aside, it is very difficult to find some way to contact Mozilla. You list Facebook as a way to contact you, but that is no longer being used. There seems to be no way to, easily, get in contact with Mozilla. It is as if Mozilla wants to make it as difficult as possible for people to bring their concerns to them.

I am considering going with a nother browser. I have heard that Brave is a good one.

I refreshed Firefox to fix a problem of links not loading to no avail so I decided to reinstall. First I copied my profile folder. After reinstalling Firefox I was able to import my bookmarks from a previously exported backup. Here's the fun part...I am unable to find the new profile folder so I can copy my old password files into it. The new folder has only 6 folders and 1 file in it whereas the old profile folder had about 19 folders and 52 files. The 2 files I need to copy back into my new profile folder are logins.json and key4.db. So far I have been unable to Google any helpful support articles so I decided to try Mozilla support directly. I am desperate to restore my old files because if I have to manually copy passwords from a different Firefox installation it will take a loooong time.

By the way, the original issue of Firefox not loading has occurred on my other computer as well. Is the new version broken?

I have Win 10 and Firefox67.0.1. I understand that Firefox has done away with tabbed browsing because some users kept so many tabs open that their memory usage became excessive. I wanted to be able to keep a few tabs open while browsing (email, weather and a few other sites). I tried using the Pin Tab feature but found it would not work for my email or NOAA, though it did work for one Firefox help site. I also tried changing the browser tab item in about:config. (See uploaded image). I am in the process of slowly migrating to a more user friendly browser (Vivaldi), but before I change default browsers I thought I'd try one more time and ask if there is any way to restore the ability to keep a few tabs open in Firefox while browsing. Thanks for any help.

I want a related tab to open as the next tab and a new tab to open at the right end of the tabs. Under about:config, I tried to change browser.tabs.insertAfterCurrent and browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent. No combination of true and false makes any difference - a new tab always opens after the current tab.

Firefox is periodically giving me a notification that there is an update available. It does this multiple times a day, generally appearing to happen if Firefox has been "not in active use" ie minimized for some period of time. I've already clicked "not now", so I shouldn't be seeing it anymore.

How do I disable it? I don't want to update unless I absolutely have to (ie back when all the addon certificates expired) due to Mozilla's penchant for making unwanted changes to the UI. I just want the notification to go away and not appear again.

As it is, this is basically a form of very annoying spam coming from the browser itself.

Does anyone have an opinion about the relative merits of the built-in Firefox Password Manager and the one provided as part of Norton security suite? It is an add-on for Firefox that Norton has been beating me over the head to use but I already use the Firefox password manager. Is Norton better? Does anyone know?

Thanks.

When I hit paywalls, I "trust" site with ghostery. Still hit paywall. Can't find anything in Kaspersky that will let me turn off anything. Meanwhile there is no red stop sign ad block in the upper right corner of FF. This is 2 hours of my life i will never get back and I still cannot get past paywall. Is the little red stop sign (which I cannot find in firefox - using most recent version) hidden somewhere other than in the drop down menu on the upper left hand side?? It's not in the drop down menu.

I am ready to kill everything and start fresh with Tor. That's drastic but I have been directed in circles for too much time. Life is short and I am no longer entertained with this mess.

When I got the last 2 or 3 updates of firefox, there were some websites I could not fully access. One of them is accounts google which also means not my youtube account either. All this in non-private browsing. I tried disabling all extensions, I tried in safe mode, and nothing changed. Also some other methods which did not work. And when I get to accounts google to sign in, I click on the next button and nothing happens. So, I tried private browsing and was able to sign-in to youtube and accounts google. I've tried all types of combinations on my content blocking but to no good result. I need a solution, please.

It used to be that when customizing the toolbar, you could insert a simple "separator" (vertical line) between other buttons. But this is missing in more recent versions of Firefox. Why was this removed? The only remaining option is "flexible space", but this takes up too MUCH space. I just want my simple separators back!

I opened up Firefox today and it suggested that I create an account. I tried to do this, but forgot to fill in the age field, so it automatically set my age as 0. I am 39, so old enough to have an account. But, if I try to go back to the create account page, it automatically redirects to a page that says "Cannot create account You must meet certain age requirements to create a Firefox Account. " And I can't get back to the actual page.

Is there a way to reset this?

This has been happening for a while now. Whenever I turn on my laptop and go to open Firefox, it resets all of my preferences. This is starting to annoy me, especially with dealing with the homepage and setting things back to normal.

I have gone through the steps listed in this article (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-to-fix-preferences-wont-save) but nothing works. I also keep getting the Privacy Notice update in another tab (https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/privacy/firefox/) when I open Firefox as well, which is annoying as well. Would appreciate the help here.
