I am working on a project to be able to parse all extensions installed on a computer for each user profile on the computer. I have researched what I can, and haven't really found a good method of doing so. I was hoping that you may be able to assist me with a PowerShell (or the like) script that can be run which would output that type of information?

Thanks!

When I last closed it, there were about five windows opened with many tabs I planed to return to. I am using a Mac. Firefox is not sync'd. I've spent a month slowly switching from Safari to Firefox. Created a lot of new and original bookmarks and logins. The loss is a real setback. It opens in a new profile it created. "Old Firefox" is not on my computer. I've read somewhat similar problems. The solutions seem very complex and do not seem to apply. Any way I can restore my work?

Is there anyway I can recover them.

You have to understand that I don't understand anything about code.

I am 61 years old and you and google and MS are making it more and more complicated in the name of BS safety

I have ESET Internet Security and addons that block popups and dangerous websites.

I suggest you offer a browser that is easier for me to understand.

My computer was destroyed when I installed the Windows 1903 update.

Then I accidentally deleted all my files ,and I didn't have a hard disk backup

Is it possible you can send me all my bookmarks from 12 months ago

Or give me instructions on how to recover without being too complicated

Please send the details to my gmail account xxxxxxxx@xxxxx.xxx

I only use xxxxxxxxx@xxxxx.xxx for Youtube

sincerely

Random today, firefox 69.0 (standard firefox from the Ubuntu repo) on Pop!_OS 19.04 (running KDE plasma) started randomly becoming super unresponsive. I would type and it would then proceed to freeze for a second, then choppily spit out my characters one by one. This happened even after wiping the .mozilla folder, after purging configurations, after refreshing firefox and after launching it in safe mode. Any idea as to why this is happening and how to fix it?

I am using Opensuse 15.0 and also 15.1. Haven't made a complete move over yet. There is a recurring situation when 4GB rx and 4GB tx movement that I cannot account for hits my 15.0 about once a month. Today it happened again. Using vnstat, I found it happened between 10.00 - 11.00. :

Searched the cookies, one site i cannot recognize came out; "consensu.org". Did a search, there were several, example: https://cmp.teads.mgr.consensu.org/index.html, that served blank pages in firefox. Is there anything odd here? Is there a way I can extract all the cookies with date & time so that I can check against previous occurrences of the 4GB data movements (I have a few records).

I'm running macOS Mojave (version 10.14.6 ) and Firefox 77.0.1

When I CMD-P to print a web page, sometimes I want to generate it as a PDF. On the print popup, at the bottom left is a drop-down for PDF options. One of them is to send the PDF via email.

Yes, I want to do that. But if I select it, Firefox launches Apple Mail to do the sending. I want it to launch Thunderbird, as it has all my contacts and I want the "sent" file to go into my Thunderbird files.

How do I override Firefox launching Apple Mail and have it launch Thunderbird instead. I've prowled around in the preferences but can't find any that allow me to pick my preferred email app.

Thanks!

Hi folks,

I have endured the sync problem for months. Today I struggled for solving it.

I have a Firefox 68.0.1 esr manual installation on Ubuntu 16.04. The sync worked when I signed in the first time. But the bookmark can not longer be updated afterwards.

If I add or delete a bookmark on my Firefox 68.0.1 esr on Windows 10, the change will not be updated to the Linux version. And vice versa.

On the Linux, I tried to disconnect my account (in the preference about:preferences?entrypoint=fxa_app_menu#sync ). I click "Disconnect" and "Just Disconnect" in the prompt, but the account is still logged in.

Another way I tried is to have a fresh new installation of Firefox 68.9 esr. Then I was asked to sign in again. After typing the password, the new bookmarks were updated. But If I make further changes on the other devices, these changes will not be sync to Linux. And I can't disconnect the account on Linux.

It looks like a new install, which resetting the login process can temporarily solve the problem.

Here is the content of the sync-log file. Can you see what is broken? Thanks in advance.

This has happened several times over the last few weeks. I'll be using Firefox with 8-12 tabs open, or even far less, and then suddenly I cannot select any of the tabs. I click on them, and nothing happens. Video and audio will keep playing, but I cannot select anything.

So at this point I quit it, it closes fine, and when I launch it again it prompts me to either start in safe mode or to refresh. I have to restart the PC to get it to launch Firefox normally again.

The only extension I use is uBlock origin.

I have tried to Clear Cookies and Site Data repeatedly in Standard, Strict and Custom modes with no success and repeated that test when trying to uncheck Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed. Incidentally this problem began occurring when Firefox offered me the opportunity to use DNS Over HTTPS. I Like using DNS over HTTPS although it may very well be that hackers and info miners (Phishing) do Not like this new firefox setting and have adjusted their cookies into Permanent SOLs. Google hires hackers for many things. How can you help me you ask? Please repair the problem.
