Where are my bookmarks from the old one? I set up an account and everything, but when I went back and updated they don't show up when I sign in

I just absolutely HATE this latest version. Even though I hate, hate, hate signing in to use any browser, I made an account with the old version that had all of my doggone book marks. Finally it updated without my even saying yes, and even when I sign in they are gone. I do NOT want to have to work so hard to have my bookmarks on a PC. NOT cool, especially when I'm going to be replacing this dinosaur this year and wanted to have my bookmarks available with the new one. TOO MUCH WORK to sync when I prefer incognito. BOO!

Hi,

I'm a longtime Firefox user and 62.0.3 works flawlessly on my Windows 10 PC. However, every version since then - and I've tried them all, right up to 68.0 - has been unstable. The browser hangs and/or crashes and every time reverting to 62.0.3 instantly fixes the problem. This is now quite an old version, though, and I'm concerned that by using it I'm exposing myself to security issues. Any ideas?

Can I get already synced bookmarks off of a dead device? And other syncing issues...

This involves Firefox on Mac, Windows, Android, and iOS. I have been using Firefox on my MacBook since 2012, and been syncing to my Android phones since 2015-ish (a Huawei, then Samsung, then another Samsung, replacing them as they broke). I never had any problems. I can't remember if I was able to access already synced bookmarks from broken phones, but since I move my mobile bookmarks into desktop bookmark folders pretty often, I was never bothered enough to check. Last October, my MacBook's logic board broke. Not long after, my phone broke. I got a secondhand iPhone, and signed into sync, but nothing synced up. I assume because my devices are already dead and no longer syncing? Is there anyway for me to access my laptop bookmarks? I still have the hard drive from the MacBook.

I finally have access to a computer again, this time a Windows desktop, and logged in to my Firefox sync to see if I could find any of my disappeared bookmarks. Nope, but something weird happened. I have about 200 bookmarks on my iPhone, and the first 139 migrated to the desktop. They show up under the 'Mobile Bookmarks' folder on the desktop, but I can no longer see them on my iPhone. The most recent 20 or so bookmarks are still available on my iPhone, but don't appear on the desktop. What just happened?

While going through all the help pages, I discovered that I do have a second Firefox profile, though I opened it up and there isn't anything on it. Not sure if that matters.

Thank you!

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox is now displaying this error message with every site that IN FACT they have https connections.

Two things happened since last night.

1. I received a Firefox update last night. 2. I clicked on a link to a bogus news article that Malwarebytes stopped, yet Firefox was affected in that a false Microsoft tab opened and required task manager to kill the Firefox session.

Virus scans were clean.

But something was set in Firefox to automatically open to that tab, which, of course required Task Manager to terminate. Uninstalls, re-installs, blah, blah, blah I was able to stop Firefox from automatically opening to the offending web page.

However, I can not go to any web pages without getting the error warning :Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue"

Any ideas? Is this a regedit thing? Would there be some entries under Firefox to delete? Is there a list of good things and therefore anything else would be worthy of deletion?

BTW, it is the latest version of Win10 Firefox as of 7/12/2019 and 7/13/2019.

Thoughts pertinent comments appreciated.

(I've previously posted this issue on a couple of other forums, with no help thus far. If you've seen either of those posts, please forgive the duplication; I'm a bit desperate.)

After updating Firefox yesterday and restarting my Win7 I was unable to open my Firefox. The error message was "Can't open this item. It might have been moved, renamed, or deleted." I was given the choice to remove it or not. When I chose not, the event and error message reiterated; so I chose to remove. Thereafter I've been unable to bring up or download Firefox, with the following error message with each try:

Twitter: GIFs on DM (Direct Message) show up as black screen, can't save them

I am having a problem trying to see and save a GIF image. As you know, if you click on a GIF on Twitter, you will just get a black screen. The problem is easy to solve by using a 3rd party site like EZGIF. But what if the image was uploaded to DM?

I have a GIF file that was given to me through Direct Message, and just like before, I get a black screen. However, because the post was sent to me privately, I have no idea how to save it. Unlike public posts, Direct Messages do not have a singular link that EZGIF can detect (eg. public posts have the "status" word in the URL, DMs do not), The only way I can now see GIFs of any kind on Twitter is to see them in my mobile device, an Apple iPod Touch or iPod Mini, but as far as I know, none of them allow me to save the GIF, only view it.

How can I see a GIF file that is on my DM, and save it while overcoming the dreaded Twitter glitch?

While trying to view "Hurricane Barry Mission Day 4 - Vehicle Cam", "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Otx7ZJUDStw" on youtube I cannot see the video just the progress circle. The chat portion is viewable and actively updated. I am viewing this on a Mac running high sierra. I also have a linux workstation which has no problems displaying the feed and is on the same network.

Can anyone offer an explanation?
