My laptop died. I purchased a new one and pulled the SSD drive from the dead laptop and hooked it up to the new laptop with a SATA to USB cable and have access to the drive now. How do I pull all the information that was in Firefox (bookmarks, open tabs when laptop died, etc.) from the old drive to the new laptop?

Hi:

  I do genealogy and often have 20 or more WINDOWS (not tabs) open simultaneously.  I also rapidly type, copy/paste, between windows, etc. and can instantly detect slowdowns - especially irksome when the mouse disappears for seconds while the system is working.  I keep history and cookies...reminds me of pages I've already looked at when color change is enabled.
  After crashing a hard drive, I finally realized that Firefox was accessing the disk WAY too much.  Even with the system static (no page changes or updates), it was continually writing to disk.  Occasionally, it would take over the disk system for seconds.  Over time (years), as you guys improved, it became less significant; just broken up into lots and lots of small accesses.  Researched quite a bit...
  Started with increasing the sessionstore interval, but still was an issue.

To solve MOST of the problem, I saw a help note. I created and set to FALSE

browser.sessionstore.enabled

Plus modified several other sessionstore items This helped a lot...

   BUT this did NOT regulate sqlite storage for third-party stuff.

This is probably handled and hidden under another config section/ keyword (not called 'sessionstore', but '??thirdpartystore??' or what?) The following profile files are still handling a LOT of writes. I use Ancestry as example (the worst offender actually), but applies to other sites also.

.default-release\storage\default\https+++www.ancestry.com\ls\data.sqlite-journal ...
or occasionally
\https+++accounts.google.com ...

Just for these accesses, looking at 100k writes every second, like pulses. This is with only one window open and a static (no change) page. What changes on a genealogy page that requires updating every second = this is a list of dead people?? Finally, my question(s): What config sections and "keywords" handle these third party writes? Any clue/hint on how to eliminate?

Thanks

my hardware is very outdated already and i wanna try if my firefox runs better without any hardware acceleration like running fully on software.

i don't think that just simply disabling the hardware acceleration in the settings disables the entire hardware acceleration because there are way more about:config preferences which are related to hardware acceleration.

I see a similar question on the forums from March 2021, but I'm having this problem now: when I go into icloud.com, it keeps asking for authentication - i.e. it presents a 6-digit code which goes to my phone/ipad, and I have to put it into the browser. After that, I'm prompted "Do you want to Trust this browser" to which I ALWAYS say "Yes", but it doesn't seem to work; the next day, if I try icloud again, it does it all over, like the "Trust" option is ignored. In settings, "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" is unchecked, Clicking "Manage Data" shows that cookies for icloud.com are saved. I've just added icloud.com into Exceptions to Allow to use cookies/site data, though I wouldn't think I'd NEED that if I'm never deleting them. I tried this with Chrome, and the Trust DID work; I can sign in with that browser and not have to put in the code.

What's up with that?

Offidocs has hijacked my Firefox browser making it impossible to read PDF files. I never added it and it does not appear in my extensions list. I've marked "always ask" in the preferences for opening PDF files but to no avail. My antivirus and Malware bytes scans are negative. How can I get rid of this?
