Unable to import saved firefox profile (from windows 7 32-bit, to windows 10 64-bit) - new profile has none of my data

My attempt at transferring profile from an existing machine to a new machine has not produced the intended result, and I need help.

I saved my firefox profile (on a 32-bit windows 7 machine; firefox was fully up to date) without firefox running, in a ZIP file (the letter number combination followed by dot followed by default), then copied the ZIP file to the new machine (windows 10 64-bit), unzipped it (so I had the same file name as from the old machine), then copied this folder into position at

C:\users\user\appdata\roaming\mozilla\firefox\profiles

I then started firefox on the new machine, went to about:profiles, created new profile, selected the folder (which was present at this step), then completed the procedure and started a new firefox with the new profile (the option given in about:profiles).

The new instance of firefox has none of my data (several thousand bookmarks, passwords, etc.); instead looks like the other (default new) profile.

The existing profile file set was (after this procedure) visible in

C:\users\user\appdata\local\mozilla\firefox\profiles

The restored profile is running now as "Default User" and reflects the folder I transferred from the old machine (except that I changed the word "default" in that folder to "main", leaving the number-letter part and the dot unchanged.)

No errors were indicated from firefox (which is running version 83 now) during any steps of the old back-up/archive save step or the new restore/recover step.

What am I doing wrong? How can I recover my existing profile data? The procedure, while not very friendly, seems straightforward enough. I don't want to go into the details of recovering specific database files/folders; I'd just like the profile I had before functioning in the new machine.

Please help

Before shutting down Firefox I deleted history/cache/passwords etc from the past day

I do this all the time but since I had restore previous tabs selected they always get restored when I start up again

However this time they weren't restored when I restarted

Without closing Firefox I navigated to the sessionstore-backups folder to see what was there but the files were only 2KB - much too small for the number of tabs.

So I installed ShadowExplorer & Shadowcopyview to see if I could recover older versions I was able to locate jsonlz4 files from a few days ago that were around 11000KB in size so I assumed they would have most of my tabs

However when trying to use the files nothing happens - I tried 2 different steps that I read here had worked for others

1 - Renaming previous.jsonlz4 to sessionstore.jsonlz4 , moving to the profile folder (deleting the old one first) and restarting FF

2 - Deleting sessionstore.jsonlz4 and copying the recovered previous.jsonlz4 / recovery.baklz4 /recovery.jsonlz4 / upgrade.jsonlz4-20201014125134 files to the sessionstore-backups folder and restarting FF

I also repeated the steps after creating a separate profile

None of these worked so I tried examining the jsonlz4 files using https://www.jeffersonscher.com/res/scrounger.html but I got an error message 'Session history file contents could not be read?'

Now I've previously used recovered Jsonlz4 files to restore tabs with no issues but this time they won't work

I read here https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1189759 that updates may cause compatibility issues and the upgrade.jsonlz4-20201014125134 file indicates they was a recent update

The recovered file sizes indicate they contain data so I want to know how I can recover it - if not through FF then through some other software

The last version of Firefox is making some connections I don't know how to stop. I've modified some of the parameter in "about:config", but there are still HTTP request to the following URLs that I didn't manage to stop:

https://firefox-settings-attachments.cdn.mozilla.net/security-state-staging/intermediates/* https://firefox.settings.services.mozilla.com/v1/buckets/monitor/collections/changes/records

Also, does anyone know if there is a configuration file where I can modify directly all of the parameters I changed in "about:config"?

Thanks!

I am currently running Windows 10 on my desktop computer for over 10 years and I have been using Firefox as my default browser. I’m currently using Firefox version 82.0 (64-bit) and I’ve noticed that Firefox take a longer time to launch from a cold boot of Windows 10. Is there an Add-on or something other feature that I can use to make it boot faster initially? I currently use CCleaner Version 5.7 to make my computer run faster. Your prompt response to this issue will be greatly appreciated. Wilbert Kelley Whkelley1@verizon.net

Previously I used: browser.urlbar.maxRichResults, but that doesn't seem to do anything after this recent update. I have to visit a lot of different sites for my job and a longer list in the address bar drop down makes that happen very quickly. Being limited to only 7 is going to severely cut down on my efficiency.

How do i stop firefox from annoying me with "Whats new in this update" message? I don't do updates very often because most of the times firefox gets worse after i update, before it gets fixed again. I have that problem on PC and Android phone, so i know its true. The old way over "About config" does no longer apply. The prompt pops up every couple of minutes and annoys the hell out of me. PLEASE HELP ME TO STOP THIS NONSENSE. Thanks

Hello,

I have three add-ons and none of them are appearing in the tool bar or working. They are enabled and I am not browsing in private or safe mode. Likewise, when I go to the customize page, none of my add-ons' logos appear for me to move.

I have attempted uninstalling/reinstalling the add-ons, but to no avail. There is room on the toolbar. They have been on the toolbar before with previous Firefox versions. I have made sure that Firefox is updated as are the add-ons in question.

Any help would be appreciated.
