I cannot find an old Firefox folder. I have looked in profile and found 2 logins.json files, dated 21.03 & 09.03, the earlier says corrupt, have copied both together with the sqlite file. How do I open these files to check them ? Tried Firefox in Safe Mode, still no logins. Help would be appreciated, thank you

Where did I see that article on XYZ. I'd like to regain a train of thought/investigation. Is bookmarks and history all there is? In reading about "Activity Stream" this seemed like the solution but it seems to lack an awareness of clustered, goal-directed activity. Is "Top Sites" and "Highlights" all there is to Activity Stream? Looking for some deeper integration/intelligence around re-displaying my history.

First thanks for all the help with ff when I had a dying system. Now setting up ff 59.0.2 on a windows 10 box and need a basic bit of information.

In the previous version I had I could type for instance, 'imdb' and hit ENTER then I'd be taken right to the imdb page. Now a search engine page opens up. Only way I can go directly to a site is if I type the entire address as in, http://www.imdb.com/ Either one of these ways of navigating are an inconvenience.

What do I have to do to get ff to a state where I can type the site name, say tigerdirect, hit ENTER and go right to http://www.tigerdirect.com/ ?

Thanks in advance.

I've got Firefox in my apps folder but can't open it or drag it to my dock. The logo looks like our dvd player with an arrow pointing to the insert slot.

The firefox logo pops back to the apps logo list when I try to drag it down. I may have created a problem when I made a second Firefox and tried to drag it, too. On my screen it was called Firefox Alias. I dragged it to trash.

I am seeing this issue in a lot of other threads and am having it myself. Unfortunately the only solution suggested is resetting the sync password and then repairing each computer individually. As a system admin with my bookmarks synced to roughly 150 computers, I think I'll pass on that solution and switch back to chrome. I prefer firefox in nearly every other way, so if a manageable solution becomes available I'd love to hear about it. Thanks.

cookie whitelist not working

Every once in a while, I go back and try something that worked in older versions of FF -- accepting some cookies and not accepting others.

In the current version, 59.0.3, I go to options, security and scroll down, I've added yahoo to my Exceptions to "allow" rather than "allow for session" and then set the general setting "keep until they expire". Now, this setup seems to be a way to whitelist only those sites I want to allow cookies, expiring others when I close FF -- as that's the most control I now have, the "ask every time" being gone. However, when I close FF and re-open, it hasn't kept the yahoo cookies as the exception implies it should.

How can I customize which cookies stay past the session and which don't?

I just got a brand new computer, downloaded firefox. I've tried to login to my twitter account, and an online class, and I get the same response every time. The site doesn't recognize my login, and when I try to reset my password it just hangs and won't go anywhere. I understand that some folks have posted about similar problems, but as this is a new computer, I don't believe the Refresh will work. Help?

I am working on a project to be able to parse all extensions installed on a computer for each user profile on the computer. I have researched what I can, and haven't really found a good method of doing so. I was hoping that you may be able to assist me with a PowerShell (or the like) script that can be run which would output that type of information?

Thanks!

When I last closed it, there were about five windows opened with many tabs I planed to return to. I am using a Mac. Firefox is not sync'd. I've spent a month slowly switching from Safari to Firefox. Created a lot of new and original bookmarks and logins. The loss is a real setback. It opens in a new profile it created. "Old Firefox" is not on my computer. I've read somewhat similar problems. The solutions seem very complex and do not seem to apply. Any way I can restore my work?
