Hello. I share the exact problem had by [[magicienne|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/user/magicienne]] (posted 4/6/21, 4:08 AM)

I too, only have the choice of importing data into Firefox. Not exporting. I've version 78.9.0esr (64 bits) of Mozilla as well and work on an iMac OS X (El capitan). My desire is to import the information into Safari v15.6.1 installed on a MacMini v10.15.7.

I've read and followed the directions posted 4/6/21, 11:20 AM by moderator [[cor-el|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/user/cor-el]] to no avail. The export function still does not show in the pull down menu.

•••••

The directions read: The export and import logins menu items aren't present in Lockwise in Firefox 78. • Firefox 79+ comes with an export to CSV feature. • Firefox 80+ comes with an import from CSV feature.

The LoginExport.jsm module is present in Firefox 78, but hasn't been enabled and you need code in userContent.css to get the export menu entry in the cogwheel menu in Lockwise. Add code to the userContent.css file.

@-moz-document url-prefix("about:logins"){

button.menuitem-import, button.menuitem-export {
 display:block!important;
}

}

It is not that difficult to create userContent.css if you have never used it.

The first step is to open the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" page and find the button to access the profile folder. • https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/use-troubleshooting-information-page-fix-firefox

You can find this button under the "Application Basics" section as "Profile Folder -> Open Folder". If you click this button then you open the profile folder in the Windows File Explorer. You need to create a folder with the name chrome in this folder (name is all lowercase). In the chrome folder you need to create a plain text file with the name userContent.css (name is case sensitive). In this userContent.css text file you paste the text posted. On Mac you can use the TextEdit utility to create the userContent.css file as a plain text file.

You need to close (Quit/Exit) and restart Firefox when you create or modify the userContent.css file.

•••••

Please see attached image of my userContent.css file within the chrome folder.

I'm certain you will be able to help. Thank you for your assistance.

I accidentally right clicked and hit "Remove from Address Bar" on the Reader View icon and now it's gone. I tried typing "about:config" into the browser and searching "reader" then selecting the "reader.parse-on-load.force-enabled" toggle to "true" and that didn't get it back. Is there a way I can get it back?

For the past several weeks when I click on Messenger from the Facebook web page I get a blank page with the Facebook header. Same if I click the little shortcut button (brings up a blank box). I've cleared all cookies and cache but no change. I do not have this problem with Safari so I believe it is a Firefox issue and not a Facebook issue.

I can't scroll down my Outlook Email folders. I have maybe 30 folders, but I can only see the first/top 12 or so, starting with Inbox, etc. I can scroll down my emails. I have asked Microsoft Support 3 times, so I have deleted addons, cleared cache, tried Private Window, but still no joy. The folders are all visible on my cell phone (Android), but I really want full use of Hotmail again on my laptop. It has been a problem for a few months. I cannot update my OSX, so cannot install/use another browser, and probably not update Firefox either from 78.15.Oesr. Thanks in advance.

Suddenly when I try to go on Youtube, I get messages that I'm blocking ads. I'm on a Mac-mini using X El Capitan V10.11.6, which is the highest I can upgrade to. I'm using Firefox Browser 78.15 (64-bit) and info shows it's up to date. My old Safari browser still will work with Youtube, but Foxfire is my go-to browser.

Dear Firefox Officer,

I have been requested by e-mail to update my Firefox 78.15.Oesr (64 bits) before the end of March. Is this update compatible with my MacBookPro5,4 with IOS El Capitan 10.11.6? Please note that I cannot install a more recent IOS. Without updating my present Firefox, would I still have access to all my favorite folders and applications? Thanks for your help. Best regards, Marcel Arnould

I am unable to sign up for a credit card. The application form does not come up. There is the possibility that it is being blocked, perhaps by a cookie, perhaps by a security feature in the Browser. How do I turn off whatever is blocking the form from popping up?

I am not a "techie" kind of person, so please bear with me. I received the email from Mozilla telling me to update my Firefox.

Will Firefox 78.15.0 continue to work on my Mac after March 31, 2024? I do not use Sync. I do have many bookmarks and saved passwords. The email from Mozilla is a bit unclear what will happen. I am using an older computer running Mac OS 10.10.5 and cannot update to a newer system, so I cannot update Firefox. Thanks very much.

I always thought Firefox Sync was kind of a backup service. Today I was disappointed to learn that Firefox Sync cannot be trusted as a backup service.

A search for “firefox sync” finds 2,929 results in Community Discussion Only.

As late as 2/2/23, Top 10 Contributor Paul says: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1404105#answer-1563509

“It appears from your question, that you are using Firefox Sync as a back up service. This is not what Sync is designed to do. The Firefox Sync service takes a copy of the data you wish to include and transfers it to a second device... The storage in between all attached devices is both temporary and fragile and is not stable enough to be (and is not designed as) a reliable backup service.”

I looked through all the Mozilla Help Articles I could find about Firefox Sync. Not one of them mentions that Firefox Sync should not be relied upon as a backup service.

Then I found this blog searching Google: “The Future of Sync”. https://blog.mozilla.org/services/2020/09/15/the-future-of-sync/

In the blog, JR Conlin says, among other things: “A New Hope Service: A lot of folks expected it to be a Backup service. The good news is, now it is a backup service. Sync is more reliable now.”

JR Conlin posted the above blog in Sept 2020. Is there anyone who can comment on JR Conlin’s statement or the progress of his and his team’s work?

Thank You to all volunteers.
