Trying to migrate Firefox profile from Win 7 machine to new Win 10. Downloaded Firefox to new machine, confirmed that it worked, closed it.Using Troubleshooting feature, located active profile in old Win 7 machine, copied to USB stick. Closed Firefox on new machine, navigated to Profiles folder, copied the Win 7 file to it and deleted the existing file. Tried to start Firefox, got 'Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible'. Fiddled round a bit, finally uninstalled Firefox from the new machine and downloaded it again. Got the same error message, now no Firefox at all after carefully following such instructions as I could find. What the f*ck am I doing wrong? A year or so ago I transferred the Win 7 profile successfully to a Win 10 laptop. What has gone wrong now? Any suggestions most welcome.

I have a windows 10 laptop with firefox as the default browser. I do not like windows 10 photos, so I downloaded a older copy of windows photo gallery which I am used to and prefer. This has been working fine until recently. Now firefox saves images to windows 10 photos. I made sure to make photo gallery the default app for all images (jpegs etc.) but it still saves them to windows 10 photos.

Not sure this is the right 'topic' but I just migrated all my info from my old MacBook Air to my new one, and Firefox is acting weird: I can go to various common websites, like salon and npr, but not, for example, slate.com.

Also, more importantly: 1. I can't even get to gmail. When I type 'gmail.com' in the brower, firefox does nothing. Even if I try a serach of 'gmail sign in' that will come up, but the link won't work?

2. Also, like, twitter won't work. Facebook I can get to my page but can click on anything, except if I try to message someone, it takes me to a blank page?

My Chrome browser is working, and my TOR browser as well.

Firefox is my prefered browser. What's going on? What should I do?

Thanks in advance!

A Question about Thunderbird and maildir status

Thunderbird uses mbox (single file per folder) storage by default. This is not a good arrangement when some folders grow to 2GB over the year; each backup requires the entire file, and that becomes 1GB and more per day for each of those folders for much of the year, ending at 2GB per day each.

I find some mention and discussion of maildir (one file per message) with Thunderbird (as a plug-in). But most of what I see is ancient history, and a lot of it warned of significant problems and dangers. It was 'experimental' for Thunderbird 60, and nothing said subsequently. I see some success claimed from 2016 (Wilders Security). That's old. The Mozilla Wiki warns of dangers and data loss, last updated 2017. Support Mozilla (undated) says you risk your data. http://mzl.la/1GDeRsp

Is there any up-to-date information? Does it work, reliably? Can I bet my data on it? Or is maildir in Thunderbird a no-show?

I'm using Firefox 78.0.2 and i keep getting notices to upgrade. But the last time I upgraded, Firefox changed the locations of my tabs from below the address bar to above the address bar and also changed the behavior of the address bar. It took me a couple of weeks to find the answers and get things back the way they were. I don't want to upgrade Firefox because I have no idea what it might change this time. Is there a way to keep Firefox from sending me upgrade notices when I don't want them?

I am a computer user. Don't try to be able to be a power user, as I have better things to do with my time. I downloaded Firefox to be able to take some FEMA courses required for my Search and Rescue volunteering. I download it and installed. Launch the program and followed instructions to set up an account. OK that seemed a bit much for a free browser but I assumed like all internet based companies it was a data collection exercise that would test my dedication to blocking all email spam.

After the account set-up, I was met with the concept that I needed a browser on a second machine to be linked to the account. Some lame excuse that you couldn't sync with only on computer with the browser. Funny thing why would you want to sync if you only had one machine with the browser. Have a simple backup system would take care of any of that. Oh well I was stuck because the browser would not function and I followed through with downloading the program onto my iPhone and scanning the code. It seemed to work. The only acknowledgments is a continuing barrage of emails telling me "someone is trying to log into my account." Yea that's me because I got asked a second time to set-up this bloody link. Some something is not working.

I would just delete everything (account and Firefox) but I am scared that my email address will be tarred and feathered and not allowed to be used again ever!!

Help please. What I hoped to be a quiet morning completing 2 need courses has ended up costs me hours of frustration.

Thanks

Mike

Background: I'm currently tutoring full-time, and the site I use allows tutors to download the session afterward as a .zip folder. In the past this has been incredibly helpful, because it allows me to review my lessons and improve my planning.

Current Issue: For some reason Firefox now appears to be misinterpreting these ZIP files as PDFs. When I begin the download, Firefox gives me the option to either open (as PDF) in Firefox, or to download. At this point (before any download occurs) Firefox has already labeled the file as a PDF. If I open it in Firefox, obviously it doesn't work (being a .zip folder.) If I download it, Windows Explorer usually lets me explore it as a .zip folder, but recently, about 10% of the files I download (even if I never open them as a PDF) still download as a PDF and are therefore inaccessible.

Fixes: I've tried downloading instead of opening with Firefox. This works about 90-95% of the time; not sure what the issue is. I've tried re-assigning the file type in Windows Explorer, to no avail. I've adjusted Firefox preferences (from "always ask" to "use Windows Explorer.") I'm not sure this will help, but will try.

Any advice? I hate to sound fussy, but I'm pretty meticulous about saving my lessons and hate losing that much data on my students. While I can save each file independently, it takes much longer. Thank you!
