Too many functions have been lost. I have a more up to date laptop but I'm not going to update the OS on my main desktop computer because too many other software programs would need to be updated - such as video editing and Adobe programs - which work fine as they are. Sadly my browser in future will have to be Safari or Chrome, which work fine with the current OS.

Without using Sync, what is the easiest way to transfer my Firefox passwords from my old Mac (running OS X 10.6.8) to a new Mac (running 10.15.1)?

Is it as simple as moving the old logins.json and key3.db files from the old Firefox Profile folder to the new Firefox Profile folder?

Can I copy the old Firefox Profiles folder and replace the Profile folder in the new Mac with a copy (to get all my bookmarks & passwords)?

My Mac hardware (a MacBook Pro of many years ago) works very well for me with the older Mac OS 10.6.8. Until fairly recently the older Firefox 45.9.0 has also worked very well for me. I just recently started getting a warning message when starting up Facebook: "Update Your Browser. You’re using a web browser that isn’t supported by Facebook. To get a better experience, go to one of these sites and get the latest version of your preferred browser: ..." with links to Firefox (https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/new/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=unsupported-browser-notification&fbclid=IwAR3NdThGKABa4x41ODOKtxHiIxdZAJv_4TfiZDi8EcGGSLul1fB-v7F7o2Y) and Chrome. The Firefox link notes that my system "... doesn't meet the requirements.." (presumably) of what the standard, current Fireox installation provides.

So: -- Does anyone know exactly what Facebook is changing ("soon") and/or how soon that change will happen? -- Is there any version of Firefox more recent than 45.0.0 that will run (perhaps with some tolerable "limits") on Mac OS 10.6.8? --- ... if so, what version should I look for? --- ... and at what website.

-- Thank you.

I am running Firfox on a linux system (Slackware 14.1). Frequently, when I have terminated firefox (at least I think so), and I want to start it again, I get a message telling me that it is still running. In that case, I open a root console and enter "killall firefox". However, I somehow feel that things should be different. More convenient, at least.

I am trying to create a Mint Mate image for many users. I already setup a distribution.ini file with the default favorites, amongst other things, but the favorite bar is hidden by default.

Every single solution I found online involves manually right clicking and selecting "Favorite bar", but that only applies to the current user. I also searched in about:config for anything I can add to mozilla.cfg, but found nothing related to the favorite bar, I might have missed something.

I'd like a way to make it so that it shows, by default, to all users, without doing something weird like making it manually, then copying the entirety of .mozilla to /etc/skel or something similar. If it can be done from the terminal, better.

Also, I'd like to disable the "Most visited" and "First Steps" on the favorite bar as well, but that is out of the scope of this question.

I have hundreds of bookmarks organized under the "Bookmarks Toolbar". Is there a way to find in which folder an specific bookmark was created? I can do a search on the "Show all Bookmarks" library but that will show the bookmark but it will not highlight the folder on the sidebar or give me any information or "path" on where to find it. I am using Firefox 45.9.0 ESR under Debian GNU/Linux 8.8 (Jessie) & Xfce.

Recently The Mozilla Firefox ESR browser was upgraded to Version 52.0 and I faced "few critical issues after updating".

"Few existing functionality is not working which was working perfectly before the update."

Error : JavaScript/jquery Error was thrown in Mozilla Firefox ESR browser Version 52.0 browser console alike “contains is not a function”.


But that "contain function" is working in previous Firefox ESR version.

So when I uninstalled the Mozilla Firefox ESR browser Version 52.0 and installed the Firefox ESR browser version 45.6.0. Here all my functionalities are working perfectly in Mozilla Firefox ESR browser Version 45.6.0.

Note: I am using jquery-1.7.2


I am not sure "Higher Version" than 52.0 of Mozilla Firefox ESR has also owned this same problem.

and also I am not sure, whether the "contains" is the only function which is not working but not aware of other functions.


Please let me know, 1. why am I facing this problem in the Mozilla Firefox ESR version 52.0? 2. what should I do to avoid this issue? 3. if possible, from which version to which version having this problem?


Kindly acknowledge to this.

I am a Linux user, and this is an issue that has just begun today. Firefox 45.4.0 now has the tendency to freeze, giving me no choice but to force-close Firefox. Occasionally, it freezes my entire computer. These freezes occur when I am preforming simple tasks; such as opening a new tab, accessing my preferences and add-ons, and even while in the middle of typing. Even when starting in safe mode, Firefox will still freeze. I cannot access preferences, so I cannot edit my settings to try and fix the problem. I have also tried reseting Firefox, but it freezes whenever I try to access about:support. It does the same while trying to access about:crashes, so I have no other information to provide. I am at a complete loss here. The only other browser I have to use is KDE Konqueror, which cannot access most sites I need. Help would be much appreciated.

Also, I highly doubt it, but I changed some of my privacy and cookie settings earlier today.... could that be a cause of the problem?

Here is an error message I received while closing Firefox after freezing:


EDIT: I solved this problem by using terminal to reset Firefox through safe mode.

My company would like to deploy Firefox ESR via SCCM and control settings via group policy. It seems the SCCM deployment is not an issue, however I keep reading conflicting or misinformation about group policy settings. Is it the case that Firefox does not read the group policy settings/registry settings to control the application and the only settings are internal to the application? Would anyone be able to point me to the most current up to date information on deploying Firefox with custom settings?
