Is the best way to return to using FF after trying Chrome a few months and import all the bookmarks, passwords, data & etc to a new profile?

I did not delete FF I simply imported into Chrome all my FF data and tried Chrome. I prefer FF and want to add back into FF all the new passwords and bookmarks & etc that I created/added while using Chrome. Hence my question. And if yes, then shouldn't I totally avoid synching with my FF account as wouldn't that defeat the purpose of creating a new profile to avoid duplication?

My profile folder is C:\Users\hseib\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\pftm4b0j.Default User. It is the only profile under "Profiles". When I open the file "pftm4b0j.Default User" it looks like all my data successfully migrated from my old PC. But when I launch Firefox, no bookmarks, no passwords, no add-ins, no nothing. Any help welcome.

This was suppose to fix this but did not work. Now when I search the same question I do not get the same answer to go & check if is still set to FALSE. Don't remember if this started after a browser update or windows update. Ready to quit using Firefox browser

In the Forms and Autofill section of Firefox's preferences I am able to choose: "Require macOS authentication to autofill, view, or edit stored credit cards" which allows me to use Touch ID to view/use/edit stored Credit cards.

Is there a way to enable this also for Logins and Passwords? The only option I seem to have available under Logins and Passwords is to "Use a primary password" It would be much easier if I could also set it to use the macOS authentication.

On Firefox Lockwise for iOS it is already possible to set Touch ID to be used to fill/view Logins, but not on the Firefox Desktop browser.

I have "Restore previous session" checked but when I restart my computer Firefox does not start with the previous session. Currently I have many tabs open and need to restart Windows but I looked in my profiles folder and do not see any of the session files and backup folders.

Why are the session files (sessionstore.jsonlz4, recovery.jsonlz4, recovery.baklz4, previous.jsonlz4, sessionstore-backups) missing from the profile folder?

I can't restart Windows because I don't want to lose my tabs. How do I get Firefox to save the session to disk?

Hi, everyone, I'm pretty new around here. I installed Savefrom.net helper and it installed an addon and a bookmark in my browser. Then I uninstalled it from my PC and uninstalled the addon. But the bookmark is still there. Everytime I close and reopen Firefox it is stays there and it's pretty annoying tbh. I tried starting in Safe Mode and two antivirus programs (Malwarbyte and Avast). No help. What can I do?

Okay I just uploaded the new version of firefox I think 83, and every time I restart my computer or anything like that I have to re-log back into EVERYTHING. All my google accounts everything that require a password. It has for the most part my passwords saved but it i a huge hassle especially since I work from home it eats up a lot of time.

It doesn't save my tabs I had left open either. I can get them back when I go to sync tabs but I have to do it one at a time. It literally takes me back to the "Important News: Changes to your Firefox" page every time and its been days and its super frustrating. If I have to do this every time I will have to switch over to chrome which would be a bummer. I have tried fixing it in my preferences section of firefox and made sure everything is lining up there so it should be saving my info but no matter what I do it just takes me back to that page along with my ad blocker and honey page as if it was my first time signing in

Please help I can't do this every time I log in

I realise that Firefox uses up a lot of Memory (particularly as it tries to run each Tab separately). However, my Firefox seems to keep increasing its usage!

I can start with a number of Tabs open & (after refreshing each Tab - to ensure it is "lice" & "active") I will get (according to Windows Task Manager) about 1,300MB in use.

Without opening up any more Tabs & without trying to run any Web-Based Videos, over a period of a few hours it will increase & increase & increase - perhaps getting up to 4,000MB!

I've cross checked with "about:performance" (to open FF's own Task Manager), to show the individual Tab usage, & that NEVER totals up to anywhere near the figures shown by the Windows Task Manager!!

Obviously, my FF is fully up to date!

Any comments!

Hi. I would like to restore my previous session when I open Firefox (last version of the browser installed). The option is turned on, but nothing happens when I close the browser and I open it again. The support says I should see "Restore previous session" after "New Private Window", but this option is not there. In the history, the list of recently closed tabs is always empty, there are juste one or two links in the recently closed windows (it seems to be a random list). Can someone help me ? I don't understand why it doesn't work. Thank you :)

Hello, I use Firefox on my Mac, and I'm a seller on Etsy. For several days now, I have not been able to get to any page on the Etsy site (my shop, Etsy home page, Etsy help, other shops...). I can get there on my iPhone (Safari) and by using Chrome, which I would rather not use.

I've tried shutting down my Mac, and I've tried quitting and re-starting Firefox.

This is not the first time I've had this issue, but this is the longest it has lasted. I checked with a friend who is also an Etsy seller, and she's experiencing the same problems. It occurs to me that the intersection between Etsy sellers and Firefox users might well be a large group.

The details: MacBook Pro 2015, MacOS Catalina 10.15.7; Firefox 83.0. Today is 2 Dec 2020.

If this is about clearing the cache, I'd appreciate some info about how to do it, as well as what might else could be impacted.

Thanks for any help on this!

1) Because the built in options are ambiguous I want to flush the temporary Cache storage directory myself, but I can't find it. Where is it? 2) Then I want to relocate it, but here are Mozilla's instructions for how to reset it:

==

To set Firefox's cache folder, first type “about:config” (omit quotes throughout) into the program's address bar and then hit “Enter.” Right-click on any of the displayed properties, select “New” and then select “String” to display the New String dialog box. Enter “browser.cache.disk.parent_directory” into the box and then click “OK” to display the New Value dialog box. Enter the full filepath to the folder you wish to use as the cache folder, and then click “OK.”

==

Doesn't work.

So, after finding the current location and flushing it how do I change it?

they are on my phone, which WAS linked to my PC, but that linking was lost, too, i guess because the history shows on the phone, along with the passwords and logins. and i will just cut to the chase here. because the fucking directions on how to relink those devices is gibberish.

how do i restore those items without manually reentering and resaving (which only works sporadically at best) those items?

Hi,

I always have dozens of tabs opened, if not hundreds. They have vanished. I’ve been trying to follow the topics on the matter, such as the one named ‘Session won't load’ (questions/1254740), to no avail.

Finally, this time I remembered not to close Firefox when I saw my tabs where suddenly missing. I’ve never seen the ‘Restore the previous session’ on the Firefox menu, and neither did I this time. Without closing the browser, I did a backup of the ‘sessionstore-backups’ folder. It contains:

‘previous.jsonlz4’, from 22/11/2020 17:42 ‘recovery.baklz4’, from 22/11/2020 18:57 ‘recovery.jsonlz4’ from 22/11/2020 18:58 ‘upgrade.jsonlz4-20201027185343’ from 31/10/2020 13:42 ‘upgrade.jsonlz4-20201108180448’ from 10/11/2020 15:05 ‘upgrade.jsonlz4-20201112153044’ from 22/11/2020 10:34

The one I need is ‘previous.jsonlz4’, since by 18:57 I’ve already lost my tabs. From the update backups I think I could also use the one from 22/11. In any case, I don’t understand what I am doing wrong so as to recover the ‘previous.jsonlz4’. This is what I’ve tried from different threads on my profile folder:

The ‘-backup’ and ‘OLD’ changes belong to different attempts

- Rename (on ‘sessionstore-backups’ folder) ‘recovery.jsonlz4’ and ‘recovery.baklz4’ to ‘recovery-backup.jsonlz4’ and ‘recovery-backup.baklz4’, and also tried with ‘recoveryOLD.jsonlz4’ and ‘recoveryOLD.baklz4’ - Rename ‘sessionstore-backups’ folder to ‘sessionstore-backupsOLD’ - Rename (on the main profile folder) ‘sessionstore.jsonlz4’ file to‘sessionstore-backup.jsonlz4’, and also tried with ‘sessionstoreOLD.jsonlz4’ - Copy/paste the ‘previous.jsonlz4’ file into the main profile folder. - Rename ‘previous.jsonlz4’ to ‘sessionstore.jsonlz4’

Nothing has worked. Once followed the steps, Firefox keeps opening my startup page. Note that it does not restore my previous session (that is, some tabs regarding this same subject), but my startup page, which means my attempts are having some effect, although not the desired one. I do have the ‘Restore previous session’ checkmarked in ‘Setting/General/Startup.

I also tried to replace ‘recovery.baklz4’ (on ‘sessionstore-backups’ folder) with ‘previous.jsonlz4’, from 22/11/2020 17:42, hoping to be prompted with the ‘Well, this is embarrassing’ + ’Restore’ window. I had no success.

I’ve been trying to recover my tabs for hour by now and don’t find what I am doing wrong. Why does Firefox refuse to load my ‘previous.jsonlz4’ file? Am I missing something? Maybe ‘previous.jsonlz4’ is corrupted or something? Should I try to use the ‘upgrade.jsonlz4-20201112153044’ from 22/11/2020 10:34 file? (Although I would lose some information)

Some people talk about a ‘History > Restore Previous Session’. I cannot find anything similar.

Thank you very much

Hello,

since months I have problem with automatic launch of Firefox on my computer, It's really insupportable. I'm ready to abandon firefox. I'm on windows 10 and I use Firefox 83. There is 3 different sessions on my computer and only one has the problem.... my session. Firefox launch a new windows always and regularely, when the computer start, and all the time during the use of my sessions. If i'm already on Firefox, a new windows open's.... If I close this one, few second after an other open's..... If I put this one on background, about 1 min after again an other open's. Like this always and indefinitevely. Whatever my use of the computer or the site to visit. Even when I don't use internet and use other software to work, Firefox starts up and goes in front of my software. If I let my session opened and I do nothings, after a certain time a lot of firefox windows are open. You can easily understand why I say that It's really insupportable... and this only with Firefox on my session.

My computer is protected with antivirus, and I did a full scan several time, I also tried with an other antivirus software. I used 2 softwares for detect malware... Nothing. I try to uninstall and reinstall Firefox, but the problem still the same after reinstall. I already set the "toolkit.winRegisterApplicationRestart" on "false" but firefox start alone again, again, again...

Does anyone has an idea of what is the problem and what I can do ?

Thanks.
