Incomplete bookmarks when creating new places.sqlite or using the restore feature.

I'm trying to load a jsonlz4 backup of 88.4 mb with 1 146 851 items. When creating a new places.sqlite, the majority of the bookmarks inside Other Bookmarks don't have a location url. Like this:

Name_____________| Location


Normal bookmark | site.com My problem_______|

I tried using https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/bookbackreader.html to convert it into html and json. Importing the html into firefox puts everything into the Bookmarks Menu and everything is missing their location url. Opening the html in writer I see that every bookmark does have its location url but as hyperlinks on the names. Restoring the json, 1 time after not clicking the Check/Repair JSON button and another time after clicking it, gives me all the bookmarks in their correct place but the majority are still missing their location urls.

I also tried creating another places.sqlite with my jsonlz4 backup and exporting as html and json through the bookmarks Library. Importing them, separately, into new firefox profiles just gives me the bookmarks that weren't missing links.

Also tried creating a places.sqlite in windows but it stopped before the Other Bookmarks folder, I guess.

I don't know if its relevant but between restarts and shutdows I always have 18 kmozillahelper processes before even starting firefox. I don't know since when they haven been there or if they have increased.

Any ideas on how to restore correcly my bookmarks?

My Firefox browser recently updated to 115.11.0esr (64-bit), and now embedded videos won't play, I can initially see a picture, but instead of starting to play, the screen turns dark green and I can only hear the sound. This happened once before recently, but then it seemed to fix itself after a week or two. How can this be fixed?

Hi thanks for clicking.

I'm on Linux, Zorin OS, which is Ubuntu based if I'm not mistaken, very new to Linux.

Anyway, I've made a userChrome.css and done some changes I like to Firefox. It has been working fine until I tried to change the tab bar's overflow shadows when there are more tabs than there is space in the bar.

The rest of the css edits I've made in userChrome.css works fine but this overflow shadow reference Firefox just doesn't grab. I can live edit with the Toolbox and then it works fine, but when opening Firefox as default this css definition is as if gone.

Image 1: after live edit with Toolbox Image 2: before live edit with Toolbox Image 3: my userChrome.css

What can I do to fix this?

Thanks / p

In numerous cases i have found not to be beneficial when website's search function is activated on Ctrl+F keyboard shortcut and where is better to use regular Firefox on-page search instead. I think that the good site has search button/area visible so i can use it when needed.

So please how to disable Firefox's search (Ctrl + F keyboard shortcut) to activate website's internal search? I want to always use regular Firefox on-page search that i now trigger by left Alt (to show the FF menu), click Edit menu, click Find in page.... (since Ctrl+F is occupied by website's internal search).

Hello,

I like using Firefox browser every day. After installing and running Avast antivirus protection (program version : 24.3.6108 (build 24.3.8975.832)), Avast notification always show this message every time I start up Firefox : please check the uploaded images : FPA Scam.jpg.

I already checked the extenstion, the Settings, and the Advance Settings of Firefox browser. I'd like to know if there is any parameter related to engine.forexpeacearmy.com and it is enabled. Unfortunately, I can't found any related parameters.

So, I decide to contact Firefox support to find out what happen to my Firefox browser, why it always call the forexpeacearmy site at the start up, and finally I want to remove it. Because I'm affraid it could be some kind of trojans / malwares and put my laptop into risks.

Kindly need your advise. Thank you.

Kind regards, Gideon

Dear People --- FIRST: I apologize for taking so ling. I had physical probs, that kept me from coming back. SECOND: I'm afraid that I can't solve this problem with the advice provided. There was a file mentioned [which slips my mind, and I can't look for it with out leaving this screen] that is supposed to be on my desk top. I couldn't find it, so things stopped there.

SO..... I'm reiterating my problem: I loaded an "update" to Firefox that was supposed to get around the obnoxious "THIS BROWSER IS NO LONGER SUPPORTED" message I'd get on certain web-sites [such as the Milwaukee Journal]. I never understood that, as I am careful to update programs, when the updates are available. SO: While I was on the Milwaukee Journal Site, I clicked on the "Firefox Update" that the Journal's site recommended. What happened was I got the Current Version, and LOST all of my add-ons. After problems I can't go into here, "The Cat's Back." Please advise whether I can get things back after this much time.

N.B.: I'm running Windows 10.

I've got a really old MacBook Pro that's still running 10.13, and Firefox has started displaying a nag screen telling me that this version is no longer supported, and to install a newer version of MacOS.

Is there something in the advanced settings that will stop it nagging me? I now know it's not going to get any more updates, there's no need to keep telling me every 20 minutes...

(Note to the devs: a "don't remind me again" checkbox would be nice for things like this!)

I get the following message when going online with Firefox: "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem." I've followed all the prompts to restart the computer, refresh the computer, delete the favicons.sqlite and places.sqlite and it won't allow me to delete them. This happened yesterday as well. Yesterday I could delete those files and everything was restored. But today I can't get it to work.

In recent attempts to join a few webinars I am now getting more and more "TLS Errors." I have noticed that many of the solutions to this problem involve actions that do not solve the problem but create larger issues. Do you have a solution that works safely? I am forced to use Windows 7 unfortunately due to work systems and a long story. I think this is my primary problem but I have to keep using it until the bitter end with this PC.

I appreciate your kind help. Thanks, Clay

All Add-ons are disabled and Firefox still can not play SOME of the videos on twitter. All I can see is a spinning circle on the center of the frame and the video will never be played. I tried other browsers and they all works well. It seems this issue has nothing to do with my network connection.

I searched this forum and find out some thread reporting issues of not playing All videos on youtube/twitter. Replies to these thread provided some solutions ,like update ffmpeg , set media related options in about:config. I tried them all and neither of them work for me.

I would like to change my password for Mozilla Firefox account. I am doing so because I have been notified of a password security breach. However, upon signing into my account via https://accounts.firefox.com/signin (it doesn't matter which device), I cannot change my password with the new one without the red-colored incorrect password window popping up. I know my signin is correct because I have just signed in using it. Whats the problem guys?

Goodd day from UK I run firefox esr 115.9.1 and find the the F5 refresh key does NOT refresh the images. The same applies when using the "reload" icon in the menu.

Reading other posts, nothing seems to apply here.

There are NO add-ons at all and everything is cleared on close. The text DOES seem to change.

As a web developer checking updates this is extremely annoying as only hope is keep closing the browser (to clear everything) and restart - the loads new images etc.

I use several versions of Firefox (2, 20, 56) to ensure compatability with olf browsers and it seems to be only those over 100 with this issue.

Does anyone know if this is a "feature" or a"bug" and is there any simple (!) way around the issue?

Thanks

p.s. ALWAYS happens, not intermittently

I start Firefox from a batch file (Win7) on the first boot of the day. Manually I choose my "NEWS" bookmarks folder, then slide down to "Open all in tabs". (attached image) (Then I go pour a coffee while the news article tabs open and load data!)

Please and thank you, is there a way to specify this action from the command line? And if so, what is it?

I believe that I could use such a mechanism in other ways, such as opening all tabs in my "Forums" folder of bookmarks, or on Mondays, opening all tabs in my "Weekly" bookmarks folder.

Thank You, Chris
