I am trying to install VPN for the first time on my MacBook Pro, 13.5.2 (22G91). I get the message VPN is on - No Signal - Check connection. I found the advice on troubleshooting and added Mozilla VPN by my Firewall, but it did not change anything. Now I am trying to reset Mozilla VPN by clicking 6 consecutive times in the Get Help to reach Developer Options, as adviced in your Troubleshooting article, but to no avail. What can I do?

Whenever I install a new version of Firefox it deletes the "Distribution" folder (in Windows "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\distribution"). So I have to keep a backup copy in another location so I can restore it.

Why? What is the purpose of doing this? It makes no sense. Is there a configuration setting to stop this?

Sirs;

I've searched for this solution and all say "Click on the FireFox Button" which does not exist, so what is the real anser.

I never ever, as in "HELL FREEZING OVDEER" want anything in the windows default "Downloads" Directory, so need this solution ASAP!

My downloads must go to the "RIGHT" folder depending on the "TYPE" of download for I download things for 1.) Windows, 2.) Linux, 3.) Programs, 4.) Install Packages, 5.) Support Items, etc. so having the right files in the right place is essential, especially since all must "SYNV" with my LINUX server.

Cheers!

Just keep on doing what it is that you are doing.

I am rather old. I picked up Mozilla when it was on X 10. I do not have a complaint. Only dark mode. I had cataract surgeries, the plastic lenses now have cataracts too. Really! The WHITE screen is painful.

But, Firefox seems to work, and it works well. It is well organized, methodical, nothing to complain about. Yes, I am recognizing the spell checker. Yes, I am ranting. Yes, I am done!

Thank you!

HI. I recently purchased a new laptop and have Windows 11 Home (64 bit) installed. I installed the latest version of Firefox (v117). I am attempting to copy the bookmarks from another laptop - same version of Windows and the same version of Firefox. 1. I exported the toolbar bookmarks from old laptop which created an HTML file - file type shows as

   Firefox HTML Document.

2. On the new laptop I went through the process, Manage bookmarks,

     highlighted the Bookmarks Toolbar, selected  Import bookmarks from HTML, selected the file I wanted
     then 'OPENED'  the file I wanted to use. 

3. The process ended very quickly, file was not large. I clicked on the HOME icon and NO bookmarks

    were displayed on the toolbar, no bookmarks in the Other Bookmarks either. 

4. The only change was - all bookmarks from the old laptop were listed under 'Recent bookmarks' which

    made no sense since I had not visited them on the new laptop. 

5. I went through the process twice and I now see duplicate entries in the 'Recent bookmarks', no bookmarks.

So, what have I missed or does the export / import process simply not work? I have not tried the backup / restore process since this is the all or nothing approach and I may want to copy a few bookmarks in the future using the export / import process.

Does anyone have any ideas since I'm stopped at this point in time.

thanks B

I confirmed the (Automatically install updates) is checked with (When Firefox is not running) option as well. I also have the (Mozilla Maintenance Service) installed on the computer. The only way the browser updates is, if when I go to the about settings and then it checks for the updates and it does update eventually. But I do not want to be doing that all of that time. I would like it to update automatically when closed, how is suppose to occur. Any thoughts or workaround on how to make this work automatically?

Firefox 115.3 kept crashing on opening. I tried Safe Mode, but that also just crashed straight away. I'm not aware of any changes that have been made that might trigger this. I've not changed any settings, or Add-Ons, or anything like that.

Even though I was supposed to be getting the latest updates, I was not informed of 116. So I have now downloaded and installed 116, and everything has disappeared. Bookmarks and settings, all gone.

I know they still exist, cos I can see them in Firefox 112 on my laptop. But on my desktop, it's like a virgin installation.

Help!!!!! Thanks for reading.

Hello all,

I've recently switched back from Chrome to Firefox, imported all passwords, bookmarks etc and off I go...

Only, I'm coming across more and more websites (about four so far) that don't have their logins transferred. The most recent and big one being Twitter, where there are two accounts saved on Chrome, but Firefox says it has none. I've tried all the usual, restarting both browsers and PC, checking there's no security I can find that locks those down (if there is I cannot find it) and the like. I'm on Windows 10 Pro, fully updated with latest patches on all browsers and Win10 itself.

Is this a security thing from those specific sites? Could it be a drastic change to the address fooling Firefox (and if so, why if I go back to Chrome do they load in fine?) or something I'm just not thinking of? I'm really hoping I don't have to keep going back to Chrome randomly to find a password when Firefox finds one it doesn't remember, kind of destroys the purpose of moving away from Google...

Thanks in advance!

I just bought a new laptop, and I can't figure out how to import my old bookmarks. I have them in an html file, but the import data option displays only the choice of importing from Edge (a horrible browser), not from file.

I can't even swear that I am seeing bookmarks. The bookmarks line at top is showing only the most recent (very old) searchs in Edge I also am not seeing the option to clear history on exit. What's wrong, and what can I do?

I currently am running FF vers. 109.0.1 64 bit on Win 10 pro. I don't like what I've been reading about the latest update, my machines are old and I'm not ready to upgrade so I don't want an even more overloaded/uses up more CPU, etc., version of Firefox. I don't have complex needs in a browser, so some of the "upgrades" haven't been useful for me or have made using FF more difficult.

  I found a list of what I guess are older versions but no information was provided on how to choose a version of say v. 110, to make sure it's the right one for my laptop and/desktop (or the one that will work w/the fewest problems) that it's in English, etc.   
  My impression is that FF is mostly worked on by people who have a variety of needs & interests so increasing sophistication is what they want and that's fine, I'd like to keep using FF w/my current machines, w/as simple a version ,ie., useful for an unsophisticated user.    Is that possible?    If so, I'd like to upgrade to 110 64 bit or perhaps 111 64 bit unless either or both had huge security holes, etc and many users found they weren't very functional.   I do have security software.
