Hello,

 I was having problems with one of my passwords not updating correctly in firefox 105.0.1   I exported all of the passwords into a csv file and then followed the steps outlined here in the forum to turn on import passwords from a file.  Then while trying to fix the password problem I removed all passwords/ids.  I clicked on the import from a file, selected the file I exported to but nothing happens.. No passwords, no id's. I thought maybe I wouldn't see it in the about:logins screen, so  I tested out three different sites from the export file and no luck on anything.  I was expecting a box to pop up telling me the import was successful or if I was sure I wanted to import all of these passwords but nothing, so even though I get the drop down to import I can't.  Has anyone experienced this problem before or any solutions.  

Thanks in advance

I'm signed in on desktop and phone (they are synced), but I forgot my password, and I don't have a recovery key. I want to reset the password to avoid losing data, just to prevent. If I back up my desktop profile, then reset my password, will this backup be enough to recover all my data? Or is there something that it's stored just online/on cloud by firefox that won't be recovered?

It is a daily event that you are sending out update notices 2 times a day, ALMOST EVERY DAY, and yet your site is still not functioning on showing videos on the Bring a Trailer website, while there is no such issue with Google, Safari and Outlook.

With all your updates and the associated daily hounding even though I update just to get you off my back, you still have problems that far exceed Chrome. Stop trying to tell us what to do!

Use your time in doing "overkill" daily updates to fix your browser so it works and handles the simplest of tasks.

CUT THE DAMN DAILY UPDATES -0 IT IS OBNOXIOUS, CONTROLLING AND WORTHLESS.

I got my new Dell laptop and downloaded and installed Firefox on the windows 11 platform. I ran the F secure virus scan and it detected30 Malware files in one of the hidden files. F secure could not remove them so I had to delete the file manually. I like the browser but concerned of receiving malware in a brand new install. I am sending this from my old computer while the new one is downloading other programs.

I am trying to copy all bookmarks from one Windows 10 PC to another. Firefox 105 to Firefox 105.

I created Bookmarks.html, confirmed it contained data, but the new PC's import does nothing. No messages. The HDD does grind away for several seconds, then returns to rest, as though it is processing, but no bookmarks appear.

I have tried moving the html file from network fileserver to C: where Firefox is installed, but no change in behavior.

If I were to put a YouTube video into fullscreen, it would do so and lock the screen in fullscreen. However, when this happens, unlike with any other browser, I can't swipe between apps with the 3/4 finger gesture on mac. I have to exit (esc) from fullscreen before I can use or see anything else on my desktop. If I were to use F11 to fullscreen just the browser it switches between apps fine, but when putting videos specifically in fullscreen (F) so it expands the entire screen, it locks the screen. Not sure why this happens or how to fix this.

For years I've set the background display color in about:config to a medium gray, #CCCCCC. Main purpose was to change the background color of the about:blank page, which is my home page and my new tab page.

Note I am not overriding colors; #CCCCCC only showed up as the bgcolor for about:blank. Occasionally websites which forgot to specify a background color would show up with a medium gray background, a minor inconvenience and a hint their coding was not so great.

Just realized my background color selection for about:blank isn't working anymore. The background color of the about:blank page is white. Not sure when it changed. I failed to notice when the medium gray disappeared because I have been reflexively pressing the dim screen button. I have vision issues and need to avoid a white screen.

There was a question in 2021 about the about:blank page bgcolor turning white which was archived but does not look resolved.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1344438

Does about:blank now specify a bgcolor, overriding my about:config setting? I still have browser.display.background_color set to #CCCCCC. Do I need to change another value for about:blank now? Thanks for your help.
