I am a senior citizen not computer wise and I am not sure about all the notes I receive. Can I talk with a person? The computer note said I need to up-date my firefox so I said yes. Then I get all these windows and I don't know how to answer correctly. I do not have a Smart Phone which it keeps wanting me to add to.

This question was asked .. And SOLVED for the person asking it .. but, not in a way that was understandable to me. So, I'm just asking for some details which could be followed as a tutorial.

This was the final comment from rjf380 on 9/19/17:

"So, between these posts, and a visit to Apple's Genius Bar, I found a solution. (1) Access the Firefox profile folder as described above and click to have it open in Finder. (2) Close Firefox application. (3) While having the Firefox profile folder open in Finder, open Time Machine from the menu bar at the top of the Mac screen. (4) The Finder folder will then be displayed for all previous updates. Select the most recent update (or the update that would contain your browsing history), select the profile folder, and then click restore. (5) Exit Time Machine.

My Firefox browsing history is fully restored."

This is good to know .. there is hope, for I have the same problem.. I had to delete Firefox after using it from the beginning .. For some reason the selection of my preferred search engine (Google) always came up with "Yahoo" .. no matter how I configured preferences .. I assumed there was a Yahoo virus in the system.. :-) .. so, I deleted Firefox .. then realized I had 20 years of bookmarks I really didn't want to delete. I've donated to Firefox several times and my wife has a $5/month auto donation that's still active... So, I'm determined to restore it .. with a working Google search engine and prior Bookmarks & History.

From rjf380's pionts for solution:

1) Which Firefox "Profile folder" ? ... places.sqlite or about:profiles  ?? (I don't see how to make a word in BOLD text)

Also .. nothing was said about Bookmarks .. or the bookmarks bar ...

Thanks much for more specifics.. Regards, michael

I was using Twitter and checked my Settings and then suddenly the site would not allow me to check or uncheck any boxes. I tried logging out to see if logging back in would fix the problem, but now I cannot log back in to my account. Furthermore, I cannot uncheck the "Remember me" box on the login screen and I cannot put in a different password, the autofill won't retract what's filled in except for the username. My account is working fine on Safari and Pale Moon, I can log out and in and change settings on both. I checked to see if Firefox had updated or something, and it hasn't changed.

When I copy and paste, for example wordpress child theme style.css (or other css) line numbers are automatically copied. Not good at all! Cannot paste that code into another css file without the laborious task of removing each line-number. I've search extensively for the solution but surely there is a simple option to 'on - off' in preferences? What else?

I noticed this morning that Firefox updated. My facebook feed today has been very odd: It flashes all the stories by without stopping, no matter if I choose "Top" or "Most Recent." Eventually I get a blank/empty feed. If I go to my "home" it's normal. Any suggestions? Doesn’t happen in Safari—Facebook is normal there.

I've discovered that cutting & pasting dropbox links into the firefox address bar just takes me to a google search now.

For example, this is the address I wish to access: https://www.dropbox.com/s/4fx7zc1mbtwoycs/WRFChem_CRI_EDGAR_Inputs.zip?dl=0

Firefox takes me to a google search page - with no option that I can see to actual just open the website I entered.

This does not happen with Safari - it will open the link as intended. And it does not happen in firefox if I remove the "https://" from the front of the address.

Why is this happening? Is this a security feature in firefox which is stopping the loading of https pages? And how can stop it from happening?

All I see is a blank box. See this link: http://www.antique-microscopes.com/photos/Grand_model_microscope.htm

It works in Safari, Chrome, and earlier FF versions. I note that if I try to embed from a https site, it does work. Is there a work around for this other than making my site https?

Hi,

I use the following css to get the tabs down below the line of bookmarks (which should be the logical position anyway from a ui perspective):

/* Tab bar below Navigation & Bookmarks Toolbars

  For best results, show Title Bar or Menu Bar */
  1. nav-bar { /* main toolbar */
 -moz-box-ordinal-group: 1 !important;
 border-top-width: 0 !important; 

}

  1. PersonalToolbar { /* bookmarks toolbar */
 -moz-box-ordinal-group: 2 !important;

}

  1. TabsToolbar { /* tab bar */
 -moz-box-ordinal-group: 3 !important;

}

However, the top area (colour buttons) is now overlapping the FF back arrow. Does someone have a suggestion for a css to fix this?

Thanks a lot.
