I just downloaded Video DownloadHelper as an add-on to my Mozilla Firefox browser. After I finished installing it, I could not find any shortcut of any icon for me to click and use it. My purpose was to download some video clips to my desktop. I did try to click the 3-bars on the upper right corner of the menu bar to add the icon to the menu bar, but the icon was missing and I could not find it anywhere. I also checked to make sure that I have the latest version of FireFox. I did try to remove and delete Video DownloadHelper from FireFox, clear and remove all my data, cookies, history... and then defrag my hard drive, restart my desktop computer and then reinstall Video DownloadHelper. The Video DownloadHelper icon was nowhere to be found. My operating system I am using is Windows 11. There is no email, no phone number for me to contact. I hope a solution is found soon to fix and resolve that problem. Thank you very much.

Hello

I have been using firefox sync for a long time to migrate between PC to PC

My firefox sync profile is full of old stuff and I would like to clean up my settings by wiping out my firefox sync settings and starting fresh.

However, before doing that I wish to export all my data/settings/password/cookies/bookmarks and everything, so files on my computer.

Files that I can read in notepad and inspect. See which settings I have in there and decide which settings I want to put back in my new installation.

I have found a locked question about this on this forum

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1065938

It mentions two plugins for this purpose

FEBE (Firefox Environment Backup Extension)

OPIE

Unfortunately and worryingly, they have been removed from the firefox addon store

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/febe/ https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/opie/

I found a wikipedia article about FEBE

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firefox_Environment_Backup_Extension a very old link to download a probably broken version https://febe.en.softonic.com/

and a reddit thread about FEBE which states that there is no equivalent and that it is not possible to export firefox settings anymore

https://old.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/t2zmjb/febe_alternatives/

as for OPIE, I am unable to find explanation of what it was, where it went or who used it

I know that my profile is stored in

C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\4vdt083m.default-release

However the files and structure in that folder are inscrutable

I would like to have control over the settings of my browser, what they are, to save them and modify them on my own terms.

I would like to export about:config completely to a regular plain text file, edit them and import them back in.

Hello, I am still using windows 8.1 64bit & refuse windows 10, due to high risk privacy, yes predictable hollow words are said, BUT is Microsoft, a greedy un-scrupled money making, money hungry corporate entity, wants us to willing give it our private details voluntarily or under thin layer of extortion.

Hence my sticking to windows 8.1 as I have certain control, mainly updates.

Will Mozilla browsers be specifically supporting older operating systems like windows 8.1 into the coming years, not just months, e.g. until January 2023

Yes is a blunt question, but is eluded against in other responses, maybe is Microsoft buy out to sacrifice mozilla loyal users or similar, same query is for Brave browser. Mozilla I think is last Bastian for decency & morality, a leader in justice & honour.

I downloaded a Windows 10 update last night. It was Security Intelligence Update for Microsoft Defender Antivirus - KB2267202 (Version 1.361.793.0). Now, I cannot open Firefox. When I click on Firefox for around half a second I see an error box that says "Open Firefox in troubleshooting mode?" and nothing else, with no option to click yes, then the box closes. The same thing happens when I try to run firefox.exe -p to change profiles. I also cannot open Tor Browser, and I am wondering if there is a connection. I have tried uninstalling Firefox using the uninstall tool and reinstalling but I have the same issue. I uninstalled the windows update and opened Firefox. This time, it had the "Open Firefox in troubleshooting mode?" box but I could actually click on the yes option, and Firefox opened. However, when I clicked on the option to get a fresh install and remove the extensions, Firefox closed and I am back to the same place of it not being able to open again.

I was watching MSNBC on livenewsmag.com as usual and when I had to refresh, a Firefox screen said I had to update my browser in order to view content. An installer downloaded with a warning -- why is Firefox giving me a warning about its own file. And why is this happening with almost no further explanation of what to do.

I was trying to download audio from some of my private youtube videos, but they saved as mp4 files. This did not happen on my phone so I decided to download everything there and send them to my PC using discord, but when trying to download what I could now see was .mp4 it still saved as mp4. If it's of any use the service I used to ripp the sound was mp3juices.

Earlier today (well, it's yesterday now) Firefox was updated to 116 and since then it won't download any images or other files from anywhere. I've set a default download directory and when I click "Save image as...", that image should appear in the preset directory but it doesn't. I have two extensions for downloading images and they work just fine, only the default function of firefox doesn't work. Here's a short video showing the problem:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EUr45Jzv-Ko

I tried downgrading Firefox to 115.0.3 but that didn't fix the problem and I'm out of ideas how to fix it. I'm 100% sure it's a firefox problem bc I tried saving images with Opera and Chromium and there was not a single problem with that task in either of these browsers.
