Figured out the basic issue (from Solutions here) why old Firefox not working on old XP-SP3. Found 52.9.0esr download - but when I run the file, it keeps telling me to "Close Firefox". Used Task Manager - nothing - not Firefox or anything else - is shown to be running. Any ideas? Might not be a Firefox issue, but would appreciate any insights. TIA - Jean

I need to copy browsing history and bookmarks from one laptop with FF v.60 to another laptop with FF v.52.

I know there are different ways of doing this, but in my case I don't have use of the source laptop. BUT, I do have the full profile saved in both laptops. I also had saved a json bookmarks copy, but it's 5 days old. No huge deal but I had some major restructuring of my bookmarks yesterday.

There's also sync, but I tried to just sync history and it does nothing. Plus I'm not sure if it's going to sync to "last updated" which is actually the other (destination) laptop with FF v52.

In my profile I see bookmarks clearly, but no history. They are both in places.sqlite? Should I just copy this? What else would be copied?

By the way, in bookmarkbackups folder, I see the last jsonlz4 file is from June 9 12:10 am, not June 10 12:10 am as it should have been perhaps. Does this jsonlz4 file work with the restore command of "import and backup"?

Thank you!

Hi, all.

I'm trying to transfer the saved logins from version 52 ESR to the current version, 86. Nothing has worked so far. I deleted the logins.jason, key3 and key4 files from the version 86 profile folder and then put the logins.jason and key3 files from version 52 in there, with no success. Any working methods?

Thanks

Making text in FireFox 52 look like text in FireFox 22 under Windows XP

This question is a follow-up to support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1243718. When I turned off anti-aliasing, text became much more readable, but still not as good as it was in FireFox 22 (see attached picture for comparison). Any ideas? (I would be more than happy to continue using FireFox 22, but there are a lot of Web sites that require encryption algorithms that FireFox 22 doesn't have, so I am compelled to use FireFox 52 with all its problems, tabs that take up valuable screen space and are impossible to turn off, and unreadable ClearType text with smudged letters that make me nauseous. I think whoever coined the term "CLEARType" was a very sick person).

Hello,I have Windows XP 32 bit with service pack 3 and Firefox 52.9.1 ESR browser. Now that adobe flash player is history I can't play videos online that are not on youtube. I can still watch youtube videos.

Is there a HTML5 video player or something else I can install on this old system that will work or is that not possible? I know it's an old system but it still does the job.

Thanks.
