To help test some bugs in Firefox I installed Nightly a while ago alongside the regular Firefox.

Today when starting Nightly, it used the profile I use in the normal release Firefox, for work mostly. I exited almost immediately, but when I try to run the profile with regular Firefox, I get a warning that I'm using an older version of Firefox. See attached screenshot.

Is there a way to recover the profile?

Current FF version I have is 90.0.2 on Windows 64 bit.

I go to show all bookmarks and search for a bookmark I know I saved before. I find it. The problem is it does not tell me what folder I saved that bookmark in. I have dozens of folders and hundreds of bookmarks. How do I tell where that particular bookmark is stored at?

I don't know if its an issue with the theme or Firefox itself (I think it's Firefox because it already happened on previous versions), but when I open certain number of tabs, or a tab with certain characteristics that I don't know, the whole row of tabs increases its height. And it annoys me. Thanks beforehand!

I want to get rid of adblock which I installed as an add on.

It doesnt work very well for my browsing needs and is continually getting in the way with selling pleas.

So how to get rid of it ? I do see that I can get a list in firefox of installed add-ins, so why cant I click on a delete delete button alongside the add-ins that I don't want ?

I've been using Firefox to do my internet banking for years, but last week suddenly it doesn't work any more. I get a message saying "Bad Request Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand. Size of a request header field exceeds server limit."

Please can someone sort this out as I rely heavily on Firefox for this purpose.

Using Microsoft Edge it all works as normal, so that is my work-around, but would prefer to use Firefox if I can.

Firefox 90.0.2 (W10) Opened up Firefox & found all logins/passwords had been lost

Have been through the previous advice given regarding this topic & most of it is of no help. There is no 'old firefox data' folder on the desktop or elsewhere, so presume this is not due to an update. I also haven't recently installed any AV software. The logins.json file and logins-backup.json file have reduced down to 2KB, when they should be much larger (approx 100KB). Both files dated 31/07/2021. Fortunately I have a number of PC's - one of which I used Firefox on yesterday, so I have copies of both .json files dated 30/07/2021. They are both sized 125KB. I have noted that the PC's all have 2 User profiles, the first being the .default profile & the second the .default-release profile. On the PC I am having the problem with, the active profile appears to be the .default profile whereas on the other PC's it is the .default-release profile. I am going to replace the 31/07/2021 files with the 30/07/2021 files & see if that solves things, but it won't answer why the situation happened in the first place. Just to clarify, the active profile on all the PC's is the only one that contains the logins.json and logins-backup.json files. In fact, on the other PC's the non-active profile only contains one file: times.json, whereas on the problem PC it contains a lot more, sub-directories as well as files.

I've noticed I've had a number of new Firefox updates recently. I've also noticed it takes much longer to load my initial web site when I log into Firefox. That web site is my head page, MSN. It now takes much longer to load that site than before. Is it possible these updates have caused the problem? How can I see what is causing the lengthy wait time for my head page to appear. It takes much longer than it used to. Appreciate input into the issue. Thank you.

First let me say I understand there is no workaround for this problem. However there should be. I don't know why this website won't load, that's not my job. I installed an app over a year ago and have not had a single problem, other than having to reset my password 6 to 8 months ago. Which happened no problem.


But when I tried to reset my password this time, they sent me a reset email, I clicked the link in the email, and get this error message, now as I told someone else a couple days ago, this is my machine, if I want to take the chance of going to a website, then you have no business telling me I can't. I am a grown man, I can make that choice for myself. Especially when I know the site is safe. So you need to find a way to put a "Ignore warnings and proceed anyway" button on this error page.

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to sctrack.sendcloud.net. PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

This is the link I'm trying to access

https://sctrack.sendcloud.net/

BTW: Yall must be some stupid people, the last line of the error msg says "contact the website owners", how the hell am I supposed to do that when you have me blocked out???????? Use your critical thinking skills. Instead of telling me to do something you just told me you won't let me do. Put a damn bypass button on this, I really need to get this password reset.
