Firefox cannot find profile after copying from other computer

I followed the instructions on the support pages to transfer my profiles from an old W7 laptop to a new W10 one. After the copying of the profiles to the correct locations neither Firefox nor Thunderbird would start complaining that they could not find the profiles.

What I did (same thing for Thunderbird) 1. Opened Firefox troubleshooting on the old W7 laptop, opened the profile folder. 2. Closed Firefox 3. moved two levels up 4. copied the Profiles folder to a usb drive.

On new W 10 laptop 1. Opened Firefox troubleshooting on new W10 laptop, opened the profile folder. 2. Closed Firefox 3. moved two levels up 4. renamed the existing Profiles folder to Profiles OLD 5. copied the Profiles folder from the usb to the same correct location on the new laptop

When I tried opening Firefox on the new laptop it would not open complaining that it could not find the profile. Firefox had opened correctly previously.

Then when I renamed the moved Profiles folder to Profiles NEW and renamed Profiles OLD to Profiles, Firefox opened normally on the new laptop.

Identical procedure and result with the Thunderbird profile transfer.

What should I do?

Thanks.

hi, As this thread indicates it is necessary to set browser.cache.disk.parent_directory in about:config. Unfortunately it has no effect and cache is store in profile in AppData/Local/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles/{profile} directory on windows. I used that feature in the past and it worked. Is this feature removed or is there a bug?

Bookmark this page process has changed (Firefox v83.0 Mac). I cannot choose where to save the bookmark because no screen appears where I can navigate to or select a destination. Then when I try to edit this bookmark, the edit screen only flashes briefly and disappears, giving me no means of editing the name or destination.

This has been occurring for 2 days as of 12/03/20.

Recently (the last week), my Firefox browser is randomly dropping characters from the text of a web page. I have the latest update (83.0 (64-bit)) and have also tried rebooting and uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. This problem is not happening with other programs, (text editors, spreadsheets) or in chrome. I have attached an image below to show the problem. If I refresh the page, usually all the characters appear. If I select the text, the characters also appear. Any suggestions? I haven't recently added any new plugins.

I recently installed my OS and backup the entire profile folder of Firefox. When I put the key4 and logins file in to the fresh install there was only one password in it, the remaining passwords were gone. I also noticed that a new file (logins.json.corrupt) is created along with file(logins.json). I tried to paste the files again to fix it but same issue. I think the files are corrupt. Is there any way to fix it?

With the 'Show all Bookmarks' page open on my MAC desktop monitor screen i accidentally deleted all of my bookmark folders (listed alphabetically) following those beginning with the letter 'P'. I am in REAL trouble unless i can restore those deleted folders to the active list.

i tried following the suggestion that i open up my 'profile' in 'Library' and i found the deletedbookmarks file. But that file seems just to list deleted bookmarks by recent dates.. Whereas I need to restore the list of deleted bookmark FOLDERS to my active bookmark list and status.

I hope someone can help me. I'd be willing to provide a telephone number, though I guess that's generally inadvisable. Otherwise my e-mail address -- which you may already have -- is xxxxxx@xxxxxxxxxx.xxx

Thank you for any help.

I visit this site, www.bringatrailer.com on a daily basis and of course i use Firefox

I think, but i'm not sure, since apple moved to Big Sur, i'm running into issues when using the site.

The first issue is that when i look at a specific listing and scroll down to the comments section, i get this message:

"28 Comments

Please enable JavaScript to engage in the discussion on this site"

This happens on every listing i visit BUT it does not happen when using the BAT site when i use Chrome

The second issue is that when i go to my account/profile/notifications and go to change the toggles it bumps me back to the top of the page. This does not happen on Chrome.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated!

Almost every time ff updates, which seems to be almost every two weeks, things I have carefully arranged in my menus, etc; get messed up and I have to spend days fixing things. I am an information researcher and now can not bookmark anything!!! The bookmark icon, the little star at the top of page, is still there, BUT IT NO LONGER HAS THE "BOOKMARK THIS PAGE" option. It has only the 'show bookmarks' option and some other stuff. So how do I bookmark pages???!!! Please stop with the useless constant poorly thought thru 'updates'.

Hi,

My computer shut down when it was in the process of re-opening my previous last session. I looked in the profile folder... It has the recovery, previous, and upgrade json files available. Every time I try to restore these files via Library > History... it just keeps on talking about the bookmarks. I need those specific sites open up as it was for my studies. Yes, some of them date back a couple months and was going to go through them. I just was wishing someone could help me restore this data.

I did check this website:

https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html

It seems like the files seems to be working? I'm not entirely 100% sure, but I see information there on websites and such that I had opened up. Not direct links.

Further, I do know that the previous was the last one that was closed properly. It's just the one that have "recovery" are the smaller files that don't retain any information.

I tried looking at available topics and pages on windows, but none seem to solve my problem. I would appreciate it if someone can help me as I feel like I am missing one last step or doing it incorrectly on how to open these files, again.

Thank you for all the help in advance. I do really appreciate it as I need these tabs restored. >.<

I started having an issue where I do not get any audio from Firefox. Everything else works fine. Firefox is not muted, it's not turned down in the mixer. I completely uninstalled using Revo Uninstaller to make sure ALL registry and directories were deleted. When I reinstalled it did not give me the "You've already installed" message, so I know this was a complete reinstall.... Still no audio at all.

Hello - I can't log in to Weebly using my Firefox browser. I used to be able to (very recently!) and I am not aware of changing any settings. I can log in if I am on Safari. A very rude support person on Weebly said there was nothing they could do their end. I don't understand it. I'm not very techie - but I prefer using Firefox. Is it something to do with the latest version? What can I do about it? thanks for your help. Celia

The FTP site I have used to download the full versions of Firefox no longer has anything except a directory for VerX with all the individual files. I can, oddly enough, find a full version by adding "uk".

Example: https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/82.0.3/win64/uk/ works fine. Gives me the .exe file.

If I change the uk to us, it won't work. If I stop after win64, all I get are the multiple individual directories, not the full version.

I do NOT want to use the stub. It doesn't let me do what I want to do.
