Hello,

I've set up Firefox to ask before updating, so I was taken aback by the fact that today, an update was automatically installed without Firefox asking me... (I was updated from 97.x to 98.0)

It is especially frustrating, as the mandatory "Restart" screen is broken when using several profiles, at least under Debian.

Let me know if you need more information.

Best regards,

Adonis

Question. How do I restore a profile from windows.old?

Details: Yesterday Windows 10 Failed (yet again , no surprise) Explorer.exe kept locking up and crashing at 1096 threads making it impossible to load/browse anything on my computer. After relogging into the OS I had about 1 minute to do anything before failure happened. (this while windows loads all the bloatware simultaneously which slows down access greatly) In short I could barely load/run mozbackup

Previously every time a windows OS failed I just restored firefox with mozbackup. Apparently that no longer works for firefox and has in fact been out of development for a decade. (tears flowing) The last time this happened ( 3 years ago like clockwork with any windows OS since XP) I moved both the profile folders to their respective locations from windows.old roaming/local to the roaming/mozilla and local mozilla folders respectively.

This no longer works and in fact causes firefox to not function at all. Since I need the passwords locked in firefox to access certain sites like hotmail.com and recover other things for my OS I am screwed. I have no Idea what idiotic concept cause the inability to manually port your profile but I need a workaround asap.

I cannot even log into mozilla.org properly without it either and was forced to use a gmail account just to post this

Backup & restore information in Firefox profiles

Hi there!

I'm attempting to migrate my Firefox (106.0.3) profile from the Linux Mint V20.3 on one SSD to a new installation of Linux Mint V21 on a separate SSD. I'm using the information supplied on this page:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles

Step 4, under Backing up your profile says: Right-click on your profile folder (e.g. xxxxxxxx.default), and select Copy.

This folder, qspfoqtl.default, contains 1 file, named times.json, the contents of which are:

{ "created": 1618792039414, "firstUse": null }

Clearly, not my Firefox profile.

There is, however, a folder named nnob5aww.default-release that contains a bunch of directories and files (505.4MB) with names like bookmarkbackups, browser-extension-data... storage, weave.

Is this documentation incorrect as of this release of Firefox? And, should I be using the nnob5aww.default-release folder as the profile? I'm a little confused. (Most often, I'm a lot confused.) Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

- Ralph

I was following this article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/run-firefox-chromeos

Installed flatpak and repositories but when I try to use flatpak to install firefox I get "No remote refs found similar to ‘firefox’".

I have tried following a few other ways to get it installed, such as using sudo and using sudo su but that has not worked at all.

I followed to flatpak quick setup on Chromebook guide that is linked in the above help article and created the nested containers in crosh as well.

below is what happens if I go to flathub and copy-paste their recommended command to install firefox.

Remote ‘flathub’ found in multiple installations:

  1) system
  2) user

Which do you want to use (0 to abort)? [0-2]: 2 error: Nothing matches org.mozilla.firefox in remote flathub

The bar that contained those items disappeared in Firefox after the update to 110 I believe. I don't know how to get it back, I've searched settings. The bookmarks and all the data appear to still be there. It's been there since, I think, version .9 something. I updated to windows 10 from windows 7 about 3 months back. I noticed the change immediately. I don't even know what the bar is called. I still have my windows 7 machine since I am still trying to resolve problem with windows 10 and I'm even thinking of going back to window 7. It did the update to 109 without a problem.

HELP!!

It is probably something simple by windows is more a game machine to me. I learned computers on a GE-645 to give you an idea of how old I am.

Thanks

52.9.0esr is claimed to be the last version for XP. Unfortunately it is not quite true. It is for XP SP2 ONLY. Trying to install on SP3 ends with the message that SP2 is required. IMO the installer is simply too strict on demanding exact version of SP ! https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/52.9.0/system-requirements/

I went through the list of versions (thanks Mozilla that they all are still available!) and found that the last version I can install is... version... 12.0b6. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/12.0/system-requirements/

And indeed I installed 12.0b6 successfully but I would like to install 52.9.

I have just downloaded firefox from chrome and cannot install it. I have tried the usually uninstall reinstall and restarting my computer but cannot fix it. I have had this issue with other browsers in the past eg opera and brave but gave up on them, however, I really want to switch to firefox so would appreciate your help. For some reason it seems chrome is the only browser I can even open on my laptop (windows 11). Do you know a fix?

Windows 10 - 22 H2 - All updates applied AMD Ryzen 7950x + DDR5 64GB RAM + 3090 RTX GPU + Plenty of Disk Space Firefox

Hi,

To get myself off MS Edge (as its Chromium based), I've come back to FF. But after I tried installing firefox standard and even the Extended Support Release I can not run it for the first time - I get this error

Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible.

I've followed the advice in the help pages, but it hasnt fixed the issue

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-remove-switch-firefox-profiles#w_start-the-profile-manager-when-firefox-is-closed

The same happens when I run

The firefox App Data folder contains no profile file at all....

My HP Omen has 2 hard drives. Originally, Firefox was installed on the C: drive and working perfectly. In order to clear up space, I tried to use the Windows Move feature to move the program from the C: drive to the secondary (and larger) E: drive. Since then, Firefox won't work aside from opening a Firefox window. It will load no pages, settings, etc.

I've tried uninstalling Firefox from both the C: and E: drives. Searched for any remaining files and deleted them. Deleted Old Firefox Data folders. I've reinstalled Firefox, without the option of where to install it, but it still fails to work at all. I get an error message regarding a missing file, VCRUNTIME140_1.dll. I've searched for the file and it's NOT missing. It is in both the Firefox folder and the Windows/Systems32 folder.

I've searched for data in the Users folders that might relate to Firefox but NOTHING seems to work that will allow Firefox to work again. I've tried putting Firefox in Troubleshooting Mode but it won't restart as it says it needs to. It just won't work!

If anyone can just tell me how to COMPLETELY remove Firefox from both hard drives so that I can just do a clean, new Firefox install, that would be preferable. I know how to import bookmarks from Chrome.

If anyone can offer some help for someone who isn't great with computers, I would greatly appreciate it. If you need any other information, please don't hesitate to ask.

I just installed Firefox on a new Windows 11 desktop computer. I ported my profiles over and it appears everything came over EXCEPT: - Themes aren't working. I've tried switching them and they still don't display. The menu bar is black w/white letters; the toolbar is gray with white icons/letters. - My extension icons are there...sort of. If I hover over them I can see the tool tip but the icon doesn't appear on the toolbar which is light gray in color. I can live without the themes if I have to. Not so much the invisible extension icons. Any suggestions as to how I can get them to appear as they do on my Windows 10 desktop? Screen cap below. Cursor is hovered over the Undo Close Tab extension icon but where's the icon? Any suggestions as to how to troubleshoot this will be appreciated!!

Hello,

after installing 98.01 recently a tab was opened that informed about a feature for Firefox installations on smartphones: the site said that it is possible to continue my work where I stopped before, including open tabs, bookmarks etc.

I don't have a smartphone - I only use firefox on my notebook. Since I'm considering to buy a new notebook in the upcoming weeks I ask myself how it is possible to migrate my current firefox installastion to a new notebook. Especially I'd like to have all my open tabs, bookmarks and cookies back after having installed firefox on the new notebook.

How can I do this? GreetZ and thanks a lot in advance!
