Trying to transfer my old Firefox setup from a dead Windows 7 PC to a new Windows 10 PC (Old HDD is intact).

Ok so this really has me pulling my hair out. My old laptop died the other day and so I bought a new one and put my old drive in an enclosure. I had my Firefox heavily customised (over the past eight years) and I don't know how to transfer it over. It used to be that I would just copy the users over and everything would be cool (XP to W7 didn't give me this problem) but it's not working this time. My guess is that it's because my old laptop used Windows 7 Ultimate x64. My desktop monster uses Windows 10 Pro but this new laptop uses Windows 10 Home (which is just awful compared to Pro) so there's probably an issue with how the user profiles are handled. I didn't have a Firefox account because I didn't want every machine I use to have the same Firefox setup. This was because my desktop and laptop are used for different purposes entirely.

Does anyone know how to import the settings from a Windows 7 profile to a Windows 10 profile? So far, I've had no luck whatsoever. Thanks!

When I upgraded to Windows 10, my default browser was reset. I've followed the simple Firefox instructions to reset my default browser to Firefox, but have been unsuccessful. That is because Firefox does not appear on the list of browser options that the Firefox instructions show will appear when I click on Microsoft Edge. Internet Explorer is there, and one other besides MS Edge, but no Firefox. How can I set Firefox as my default browser? This is getting aggravating. Thanks!

Hi. I have updated Firefox to the latest version (79.0, 64bit) on Windows 7 SP1 x64. WebRender is said to be supported by all Intel GPUs now. I have a somewhat old Core i3 530 that I'm using right now. Here's some of my about:support info: https://i.ibb.co/JzPx8SJ/aboutsupport.jpg Plus my about:config gfx.webrender.all preference seems to be set to false

Does somebody have reliable info on this? What are the officially supported Intel GPUs? Thank you.

Starting yesterday, I can no longer download .pdf datasheets from the regular firms that I have been dealing with. When I click on the datasheet link, the page that I was on is returned, instead of the datasheet. I am using Windoz 7. Is this caused by changes in Firefox? Can this be fixed?

Thank you for your assistance in this matter. Johnski

I just discovered that there are URLs saved in Firefox’s History that are only viewable when searching (i.e. they are hidden when viewing the History window normally with an empty search box).

From what I can tell, they are mainly (if not all) redirection URLs that never show a webpage.

I have 2 related questions: Is there a way I can make all URLs always visible in the normal/unsearched History window?

Is there a way I can view a history window that only shows the hidden URLs and not the rest? (I’m hoping to see what hidden URLs I’ve built up in my history before I start having them in the normal view.)


Note: The Mac version of Firefox is the only version I currently use.

Meetup.com site login will not work with latest versions of Firefox. Does anybody know why, or have a workaround. It works on other browsers like Chrome. In latest Firefox, I enter my valid username & Pwd, do the Capcha, and hit logon button - it just takes me back to the logon screen. In chrome, it enters the site as expected. I have cleared the cache & all cookies. Help.
