After a system wipe, I installed firefox v56x and downloaded and installed the Password Exporter add-on. After a few days I had some problems and re-installed the FF v56x. Now, I cannot find anywhere to download the legacy Password Exporter add-on. The proper link from google reveals a (Mozilla) page not found message. A 'cashed' page loads for about 1/8th of a second the goes to the (Mozilla) page not found. Other sites (Like Toms guide) only links to the page not found.

Can anyone ...PLEEEEEEEASE.. give me a link to a working download for the Passord exporter add-on.

I am having so may issues with FF this really is the last chance. I had FF for years without any problems, now it seems as if the devz dont give a monkeys about people and just want to race their competitors.

All help is appreciated.

Hello, I 'm amongst the people that reverted back to Firefox 56 after the Quantum update for the add-ons alone. (mainly Classic Theme Restorer and NoScript) I would like to know if there is a way to install Quantum along with v56 on the same windows 10 PC.

Having both versions installed will allow me to continue using my favorite add-ons, while monitoring Quantum for new updates and add-ons , trying to customize it to my liking and hopefully stick with it at some point.

Thanks in advance.

Problem appeared 5-6 days ago.Runing windows 8.01,Kaspersky internet security(for several years had no problem with it). In Google Chrome and on i Phone,that issue does not exist (yet). Other web pages still have no souch problem(to be precise I'm not having that kind of problem :ONLY WITH gmail.com  ! )

What might be the cause , and how to solve it. Did Google change something,so that earlier versions of firefox do not work with gmail anymore (keeping the 56.0.2 because of Ant video downloader)

THANK YOU FOR THE ANSWER AND HELP IN ADVANCE !!!

I want to export my cookie permissions either through a WebExtension or a script outside of Firefox.

I'm looking at the `moz_perms` table in my permissions.sqlite, and I see three values for `permission` for entries of `type` "cookie":

  • 1: Keep cookies permanently
  • 2: Block all cookies
  • 8: Keep cookies for session

As I review the Firefox codebase, I see the following in nsIPermissionManager.idl:

 const uint32_t EXPIRE_NEVER = 0;
 const uint32_t EXPIRE_SESSION = 1;
 const uint32_t EXPIRE_TIME = 2;
 const uint32_t EXPIRE_POLICY = 3;

Obviously, that doesn't match up at all, so I'm probably looking at the wrong thing. I've been a user of Self-destructing cookies if that makes any difference.

Where can I find code or documentation on meaning of the `permission` field for entries of `type` "cookie" in the `moz_perms` table of permissions.sqlite? Is there a better or existing means of exporting cookie settings like this?

Hello,

First I might not be using the right terminology/words/terms. So forgive my layman mistakes.

I am trying to clean up places.sqlite using a 3rd party software/plugin as it is much faster. I am having issues creating the SQLite script.

I would like to do two things:

1) Remove all items from the table moz_places that contain certain words in the URL and also remove it's corresponding/linked rows in moz_historyvisits

2) (MORE IMPORTANT) Remove all moz_histroyvisits that do not have corresponding rows in moz_places

Verify custom search plugin parameters are used after installing a plugin

1st, I'm using Fx 52.8.0 ESR in Linux. I've created custom search engine plugins before, but http://mycroftproject.com/submitos.html - with a template to create a plugin & "test it" has changed some terms, requirements on their site (it seems).

In fact, the plugin - used from Fx search bar, brings an empty DDG page (even allowing scripts, cookies). Something the Mycroftproject template accepted is obviously not right.

I created one for DuckDuckGo using 8 or 10 custom parameters from DDG's "customize settings" page. Mycroft Project has lots of custom DDG plugins already posted, but I'd like to learn how to do it quickly for numerous sites.

I used "show full instructions." Under Search URL, I entered the domain & the custom parameters: https://duckduckgo.com/?kn=1 [example is shortened]. Other than using a script - I stored somewhere - to open the archive, ~/.mozilla/firefox/{profile name}/search.json.mozlz4, I don't see a way to check if a search plugin is using the correct parameters.

Plugin created on MycroftProject isn't working: If I do a DDG search from the search bar, the results page is blank (not even an empty search box). Can someone post a link to a complete example for DDG, that uses complete sentences & actual values, unless DDG or the Mycroft plugin creator wants symbolic entries like "{searchTerms}?"

If I open a DDG page using the bookmark w/ parameters - that DDG created, then a search from their search box works. It's apparently not what OpenSearch wants.

Either way, opening a DDG page with their bookmark, if I click their settings link, that page opens showing all default parameters, not my custom ones that are showing in the URL bar.

    • Isn't there an easier way to see the parameters used - especially if the plugin DOES work?

Another issue: When creating the plugin, http://mycroftproject.com/submitos.html showed an error: "No {searchTerms} parameter found. (case sensitive)" Where (all) are they expecting that? After all custom parameters? Are they wanting the actual symbolic {searchTerms} - entered where? Read several sites about using the Mycroft template - I decided to enter "{searchTerms}" under "Post Parameters." It shut up, but the plugin didn't work.

Note: One DDG, parameters like kn=1, are the same for Get or Post method, except the parameter instructing to use Get or Post. I'm not sure what they want under Post Parameters. DDG supports Post.

Image not used: Mycroft plugin creator asked for an image or icon. Mentioned 16x16 - maybe for an icon, but I uploaded a 16x16 png. When plugin is created, it uses Mycroft's site icon, not the DDG I uploaded. Maybe it wants images w/o square backgrounds?

I have an urgent problem. I am about to loose access to my existing primary and secondary emails, as i have been forced to try to change to a new email provider. I set up with Gmail and it was working fine until I updated windows on the 20th. Now I cannot log in I get the following error massage:

The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because an error in the data transmission was detected. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

I have searched online and deleted my google cookies and cleared my cache without effect. I am getting desperate to get this fixed. My new ISP does not provide email addresses but I need two of them one for myself and one for my mother. I have been told that my existing emails my be deleted as early as 30th March 2021. I have been trying to get these new emails in place for nearly three months and I feel like this is the last straw.

I know I am using an old version of Firefox, but I need to keep my old style extensions as I use them to help me with my visual disability.

My friend and I both experience lagging in the new firefox browser. He was typing in letters on a website, and said that he experienced the letters lagging as he was typing them in. For example, he would type in "I can see the house by the lake, and there is a parking lot next to the house" Now, as he is typing that, the letters slowly show up, and then everything kind of freezes, but roughly 2 to 3 seconds later, all the words he typed all suddenly show up, and then it will just do that constantly.

So, to help facilitate my moving over to quantum, the lagging issue needs figured out. Secondly, there is an add-on we both use, called Speed Dial. It was made by Josep Del Rio version number 0.9.6.18 and the website for that add-on is http://speeddial.uworks.net. The problem, is that in quantum the speed dial add-on that we use, is now in legacy, and doesn't work with quantum. So, if we can use that version of speed dial, and figure out the lagging issue, I'll gladly move to quantum. I like the idea of new, but when it doesn't work properly, it gets extremely frustrating. The other problem is you have the company saying how great things are, and then we are all stuck saying that it's not great, we explain our problems, but it's like they don't care. So sorry for the ranting but it just gets tiring after so long.

I'm not sure if this will help but my computer specs are: Windows 7 Pro SP1 64 bit 16 GB RAM AMD FX-8300 8 core @3.3 GHz GPU: Nvidia GTX 970 4 GB

My friends computer is much better than mine is and we can both easily run any web browser, so we're a little confused as to the lag we experienced with that browser.

hello

since last week, my saved logins have disappared. I tried with a win10 system recovery (there were 2 timestamps available): both didn't work, linked to a problem with Firefox profile (but error message doesn't show up fully so hard to see what is wrong).

Via shadowexplorer, I was able to export the following files from previous system recovery backups: key3.db key4.db & logins.json .

If I copy these to a new (or existing profile), the logins.json file is renamed to logins.json.corrupt

I have seen that there was a similar problem with AVG-users, but I run Comodo internet security premium...

Any clues how to retrieve the logins??

First of all, I've been having this problem in various forms for years. I stopped using Firefox years ago and switched to Pale Moon because of it, which was possibly a little better, but still had issues. I now use Waterfox and Tor Browser, and both have issues as well. So it seems to be an inherent issue with the browser itself. I had issues on XP years ago, then on 7 for years, and now on 10. Both 7 & 10 were/are 64-bit for both OS and browser. I use a lot of tabs, and currently have ~120 open in Firefox; however, currently only ~40 are actually loaded, so it's really not that many, yet the problem still exists.

Basically, one of two things happens, or both: after anywhere from less than a day to several days, the browser will slow down or it will crash. When it slows down, even small things take forever. For example, hovering over a tab will take a few to several seconds for the tab to change color indicating it's being hovered over (which also means clicking on a tab to switch to it takes as long), clicking checkboxes in my email is slow and unresponsive, and typing will freeze every few to several characters. When it gets real bad, the browser will say "Not Responding" and even fade out until it comes back, doing this very, very frequently, until it eventually just crashes.

It also doesn't seem like it could be a hardware issue, considering I've experienced this across multiple computers, and I just had Waterfox slow down with the "small" number of tabs open on my current computer (64GB RAM, Samsung 960 Evo) whereas I've had 500+ tabs open on my older computer (32GB RAM, 850 Evo). In fact, when it just happened, I checked the memory usage and it was using ~10GB, with only ~42% of my total memory being used, so it's not like the system was running low causing paging (not that that should make that much difference with my drive). And Windows and all other programs are fine whenever it happens; it's always just isolated to Firefox/Waterfox/Tor/Pale Moon. I did a garbage collection and a cycle collection, neither of which changed the memory usage or made any improvement, so I then did "minimize memory usage," which may have. I say may because the memory usage is now down to 8GB and Firefox is working well again, but I'm not sure if that's what did it. I have e10s set to 7 processes, which I understand makes it use more memory (though 8-10GB seems awfully high) but, as I said, I have more than enough. It almost seems like when the browsers reach a certain memory use, which seems to vary based on the browser and has nothing to do with the amount of memory available, they start having issues. Tor Browser seems to slow down and crash around 3-3.5GB, for example.

Also, it's doubtful it's add-ons, since I've used different ones over the years and with different browsers, I have almost all disabled in Waterfox, and I'm using even less in Tor, and only NoScript is common between them. I'm convinced the core of the browser is just not coded well enough to handle more than a small handful of tabs, but I'm hopeful somebody can provide some guidance to fix the issue, because otherwise I just don't know if I can stay with *fox, as I need stability in a browser.

I have Classic Theme Restorer disabled in a list of add-ons, although I use 56 version. I know add-on is removed from Firefox extensions by author Aris. Still need to use it. Tried some scripts to disable Firefox extension signing, found .xpi add-on distributive on third-party site (Safety? And who is pushing me there?). Not working, and my abilities end there. Without these features I have no use for Firefox browser, to me Quantum is essentially useless Chrome clone.

I decided to give Firefox 59 another try (59.0.3). Even in the most recent update, drop down menus on many sites do not function properly. I can open them, but they do not stay open. I cleared the history and cache, but the problem persists. I am beyond annoyed at this, because everything works PERFECTLY in Firefox 56. I get tired of being told my browser is out of date, but if they can't fix something simple like drop down menu operation, then I will keep using an outdated browser.

I want to know WHY this is happening. Nothing changed except the browser 'upgrade'. I am on Mac OS 10.13.4, with a Magic Mouse. It does seem that it will work properly with a USB mouse, but I should not have to go back to ancient cowboy technology to have my web browser work correctly. I like my wireless mouse and it alone should not be causing this problem. If anyone has any ideas as to WHY this is happening, your input will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
