Prior to today, occasionally I would need to restore from a Time Machine backup the files "places.sqlite", "places.sqlite-shm", and "places.sqlite-wal" into my default profile, because I would lose my bookmarks & history.

However, beginning this morning, that procedure did not work. Every time I open up Firefox, the "places.sqlite" file would corrupt immediately and no attempt at restoring (from any backup date/time) would fix the issue.

I am running Mac OS 11.7.2 (Big Sur) and Firefox 111.0.

This is VERY frustrating, because I rely heavily on my bookmarks and passwords.

PLEASE HELP!!!!!!

When I try to open my yahoo email I get this message.

"The page isn’t redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies."

Last week, I reinstalled Windows on my PC and then installed Firefox. After the installation, my bookmarks synced and were transferred safely to the new browser.

However, due to certain reasons, I had to reinstall my operating system again today. I downloaded Firefox once again, but unfortunately, I couldn't remember my password, so I had to reset it. After resetting the password, I initiated the sync process to recover my bookmarks. Unfortunately, I was unable to retrieve my bookmarks even though they were synced previously.

I am writing to ask about my options to recover my bookmarks. These bookmarks hold years of important information, and I cannot possibly find everything again manually. However, I have deleted everything from my old system, so I am not sure what options are available to retrieve my bookmarks.

Please help me to get them back somehow.... I read other posts saying that syncing is not a safe way for backup but I am lost here. My only option is to recover somehow from your servers but how would I do that??

If I go to "Import and Backup" I only have one option of restoration but it's not my old one, it's just the one created today.

Please try and help me to recover them.

Thank you,

keywords: firefox (111.0 (64-bit)) issue/ bookmarking/ ubuntu. hi, before this version, when i drag a link from the tab link bar, to a bookmark folder, it names the link properly using information from the site (link). eg. a youtube page link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2v-gvRxmINg before, when dragged to bookmark, it is named as the video name: 8 Reasons to QUIT CHROME and USE BRAVE Instead! . this helpful to know what the bookmark.

but now, the name is simply the link, ie, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2v-gvRxmINg. this is a terrible name.

not sure whether this is the right place for this. this is either a bug or a "new" feature that i have to configure manually the behavior of bookmarking.

this is the info of firefox: -- see attached file. 111.0 (64-bit)

os: ubuntu $ lsb_release -a No LSB modules are available. Distributor ID: Ubuntu Description: Ubuntu 22.04.2 LTS Release: 22.04 Codename: jammy


thanks

On my Android home I often use Add to Home Screen to place an icon on the home screen for frequently used websites. They tend to disappear when Android updates are pushed out. Anybody know how to prevent this?

By the way, the inability to mark a page within a PWA website sucks rocks. Developers, please give us a choice to install PWAs or just use page shortcuts if possible.

So I patiently shut my mouth last month after I was told the "devs" are looking into why the bookmarks reset to the top of the folder each time they're used. Waited for the next update. The problem still exists. Nothing has changed.

The oft-cited bug report refers to INTERMITTENT behavior. This happens All.The.Flipping.Time. That bug report isn't worth squat. And to try and file a new one with the accurate behavior frequency, it gets dismissed as a duplicate by someone who apparently loves mindlessly scrolling bookmarks all freakin day.

When is this issue going to be resolved?

I have a login screen that is book marked in Firefox. When I use this on my PC (Windows 11), it correctly displays and then Norton Password Manager prompts to complete the id/password. However in Firefox ios, when the screen appears, it is preloaded. I dont know where it get this data from, but either the website doesnt allow it, or the password entered is wrong. Either way I have to delete the password and re-enter it to continue.

WHere is it getting this autofill from and why does it do it in ios but not the PC version?
