Unable to activate bookmarks from "bookmarkbackups" folder

My iMAC desktop computer crashed yesterday and ultimately I ended up having to go into recovery mode, erase the hard drive to reinstall the OS and then restore the applications and files from TimeMachine using Migration Assistant. All of that worked fine, but Firefox was still hanging up, so I deleted it and downloaded the most recent version. That of course wiped out all of my bookmarks. I used Time Machine to restore the "bookmarksbackup" folder as shown in the image below. That did not help, at least in terms of restoring my bookmarks to Firefox. I noticed that a second profile had been created, so I copied the same list of files to the bookmarksbackup folder under that profile. Still no help. It occurred to me that perhaps there is another place where the current active bookmark file should live, but if that is the case, I can't figure out where that might be. I'm quite stuck and really need access to my bookmarks. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

PS: I've since run a thorough virus scan using Microsoft Defender and checked disk integrity using DiskUtility.

Over the last week, a little purple icon appears in upper left corner of my firefox browser, it looks like a person viewing a screen. It sits right on top of the red-yellow-green circles that allow me to minimize, enlarge, or close the browser, and renders Firefox unusable. How do I get rid of it?

Earlier, I joined a zoom meeting from a facebook group (facebook in a container). I had Yahoo open on my browser. Now, no matter what I do (including uninstalling and reinstalling firefox), I get the message every time I try to open a link from a particular email to a website totally unaffiliated with facebook. It looks like facebook grabbed onto the open tab and I can't get rid of it. I'm using a different browser to access that url, but I'd like to get facebook out of my yahoo business. It looks like FB is trying to track my activity on the web. Please help. BTW, Yahoo was in a personal container and the url for zoom opened up when I joined the zoom meeting from facebook, so all 3 of those tabs were open for a couple of hours. Thanks for your help.

Hello,

I was trying to watch Youtube and pulled up the page, but all that was there were grey boxes where the recommended videos should be on the home page. When trying to search, only a blank area came up. When I tried to go directly to a channel, the same happened. Loading a direct link from a video let me play the video, but everything around it was gone, no recommended, no channel, no likes, nothing.

I have tried clearing the cache and cookies. My Firefox version is up to date as of right now. I restarted the browser several times and restarted my computer.

Other solutions suggested going to about:config and changing image.webp.enabled to true, but when I search under about:config, that option is not there.

Youtube works if I open a private window and sign in. I have tried opening Firefox in troubleshooting mode and this did not solve the problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've copied the root profile folder from my old machine, created a new profile running Nightly, put the contents of old profile into just created one, and it just worked. Doing the exact same steps with Dev version doesn't work - app refuses to launch after picking imported profile as default one. Could it be because Dev has a lower app version?

I'm a new user to Firefox on my Mac. I don't see a Share button that would allow me to email the current web site to a friend. Looking for help on the web, I see:

To access the feature, simply click on the Share button on the toolbar. The Share button looks like a paper airplane and is located to the right of the address bar.

but I just don't see any button or icon that looks like that.

I went into View > Toolbars > Customize Toolbars and didn't see a way to add a Share button. I clicked 'Restore to Defaults' and that didn't help.

I know I can choose File > Share from the menu but I'd rather have a toolbar item.

Here's a snapshot of my toolbar and address bar.

Thanks for any help.

Since yesterday, occassionally while using Facebook or Messenger, the tab crashes. Earlier today on the Messenger side, after reopening the Messenger tab after it crashes, it crashed again. It doesn't occur on other websites and the app doesn't crash, only the tab.

Using Firefox on "troubleshoot mode" doesn't have an issue when accessing when I visit those for a few minutes and with only one or two tabs open, and I'm afraid of visiting these sites for a while because it may crash again. Occurs on both Windows and Mac.

Crashed signature leads to: "js::gc::AllocSite::incTenuredCount", and I have no idea what does it mean. For my Mac the reason for the crash is "EXC_BAD_ACCESS / KERN_PROTECTION_FAILURE", while for Windows, reason is "EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION_READ".

Heres from my Mac: bp-b882a473-a8a5-496f-8a14-d9d190240403

I will add additional crash IDs from my Windows. Idk what is the problem currently, is it with the add-ons installed, Facebook, or Firefox itself? The RAM is fine.

While using firefox with mac trackpad or magic mouse it's really easy to accidentally middle click to a tab and close it. It's really frustrating to loose a tab. I guess it wouldn't be so hard to put an option to disable that function. That would make life so much easier. And there are LOTS of requests for the same thing in this site many of them more than years old.

SSIA for the most part. I am running firefox 124.0.1 on my macbook air and, only from certain senders, does the formatting look different from others - the font is different, and I can't highlight or click links. Almost seems like a picture instead of text - I can even click in the general area and it'll copy/paste it in Word like a picture.

Any suggestions?

duplicate of /questions/1443841 thread.

I cannot get firefox to update. It is set up for automatic updates but they don't happen. Even if I try manual installation of updates it says the update fails. I ran it in troubleshooting mode and the problem still exists. I restarted my computer and the problem still exists. I am using a mac running on Monterey. How can I get it to auto update again? (and even though it says failed to check for or install updates, it looks like I do have the latest version of firefox)
