Upgrade from V52.esr to V81 - no Logins imported, no Fix working

I'm trying to upgrade from V52 ESR - kept for known and obvious reasons concerning addons compatibility - to a current V81. Copied the profile data from user/appdata/mozilla/firefox.../myprofile/*.* - including "key3.db" (in use), "key4.db" (don't know where this one originates from - shouldn't exist at all for versions < 57 or so) and "logins.json".

So far stumbled upon:

  • No Logins in new system visible. No master password set. After setting a new master password, still no logins visible.
  • This very forum here suggests - in many threads for version upgrades from somewhere in the 50s to up to the 70s - to simply copy the "key3.db" and "logins.json" and to delete the "key4.db" on the new system's profile. That does not change anything at all.

Am i forced to keep the V52, now not only by means of addons compatibility, but also by means of login manager compatibility?

What would the correct path to upgrade be? Would i have to install each and every in-between-version from 52 to 81 to be able to migrate? Will i run into the exact same trouble doing it that way, only burning daytime for nothing? Or is it guarantied to somehow get the logins data transfered to the current version? How did all the Millions of other users fare with that aspect? Is that an extremely rare case where users set a master password, so that developers decided to not care anymore about those nasty paranoids?

I use cryptographic module PKCS#11 to browse some sites. I load corresponding xxx.dll file : Options>advanced>Certificates>SecurityDevices>Load . The PKCS#11 device appears in the Device Manager list of devices. I can Log in this PKCS#11 reader and view data. "OK", View Certificates - I view this certificate. "OK" and quit Options menu. If I close the FF browser, these settings was lost and I have to install them manually again. How to save these settings ?

I'm using Firefox 52.9.0 running on Windows XP, which is no longer supported. I'm finally coming out of the dark ages and I'm buying a new computer running Windows 10. I'll be installing the latest release of Firefox and am unsure if there are compatibility issues to consider. Can I just use backup and restore to migrate the existing profile to the new computer? Thanks for any advice ...

Firefox leaking local data while connected to a VPN

- I'm running Firefox ESR 52.9.0 (64-bit) in Kali Linux. - I have an IKEv2/IPsec VPN tunnel set up to a foreign VPN server with non-local-ISP DNS servers also hard coded in the resolv.conf file. - My local ISP is exercising internet censorship.

When trying to access a website that my local ISP is blocking with a browser other than Firefox, I can reach it fine. When trying via Firefox I get redirected to a page from my local ISP saying "this website is blocked blabla".

So Firefox is somehow leaking data outside of my VPN tunnel. As Firefox is my preferred browser I want to avoid having to ditch it.

Is there a setting in for instance about:config that needs adjusting?

I have been searching all over the web, but have been unsuccessful in finding the solution to this problem.

All suggestions are welcome - if more details are needed, just ask.

Thanks in advance!

Firefox 45 and below doesnt do this, but 46 and up to including ver. 52 has these 3 pink boxes with 3numbers in each box that change with movement of the mouse around the page or browser window. It happens even in safe mode. The pink boxes appear also in any drop down menu or balloon tip etc. I am using XP SP3 32 bit. I would like to get rid of these artifacts because they are blocking my view etc of menu items etc.

An inadvertent "REFRESH" click destroyed my plugins. Gone. No folder profile available because of browser updates - in other words, I cannot get my old profile back? My old profile with the plugins is listed in data on the desktop, however I'm unable to revert to the previous state of the browser, prior to clicking the refresh. Apparently the new "profile" is set in stone. Is there any way to get plugins back without a hassle? I've forgotten all of the names but they're vital. Now I've got to resort to hacking? Can I not revert?

What does "Refresh" mean? Old school: "refresh" means to F5- NOT destroy plugins, etc. How do I get everything back. There's no revert button for FF's new age refresh interface mistake? Misleading. DESTROY would be a better term for the chaos created in my world by the inappropriately named button. Must I get a degree in FF's new age browser speak to fix this? It's easy to get lost with all this. KISS. Any help? I seem to be lost. I'll likely have to start over...I'd had other plans for the day. There should be a warning prompt for this kind of user abuse. There is none.

saving url to "other bookmarks" results in "access denied..."

saving url to "other bookmarks" results in "access denied: you do not have the rights to do this" when an unrelated program wordperfect saves file as microsoft word 97 file, where previous to saving to "other bookmarks" the same file would save as without problem.

"access denied..." is a documented wordperfect problem when converting to word 97, which can be single instance corrected by saving as another word format then immediately re-saving as word 97; though has only been a problem with my system if first saving url to "other bookmarks".

the only working fixes found are - restore system drive to previous backup and discontinue use of "other bookmarks" - run wordperfect as administrator - turn off user access control

baffled as to how saving a url to "other bookmarks" could affect another program -- any suggestions?

Hello, this isn't a question. My pc just updated firefox and broke Session Manager, again. I tried to install the older version that still supports the addon, but it is no longer available...

Luckily, I downloaded it on another pc previously and still have it. If anyone still wants to use this older version 52.9esr, then email me or get it here from my drive: <strike>https://drive.google.com/open?id=1ogCNwMYfgAFOtgWU73ILQ6OGFc1WA5Br</strike>

Please do not delete my post. People have a right to do what they want. Losing thousands of tabs is a BIG DEAL to some of us...

Fire Fox is saying that I'm using XP so it doesn't update. However, I am NOT using XP, I AM using Win7 Professional.
