Doing this requires a password, which I have lost. Is there any way to overcome this? I cannot create a new password without knowing the old one. Sorry if I'm placing this question in the wrong place!

I think I was not home when speed dial disappeared. I dont understand computers very well, I have mac OS 11.2.3. I don't know whether firefox was updated without my knowledge today. I have time machine and regular backups.

Got one response from a volunteer but that response, unfortunately, was for Windows. I'm on a Mac...

When I select the bookmark, Firefox does nothing, apparently.

iPhone works just fine on sites that Firefox won't access, so it's not the modem or the ISP.

Thanks in advance!

With the 'Show all Bookmarks' page open on my MAC desktop monitor screen i accidentally deleted all of my bookmark folders (listed alphabetically) following those beginning with the letter 'P'. I am in REAL trouble unless i can restore those deleted folders to the active list.

i tried following the suggestion that i open up my 'profile' in 'Library' and i found the deletedbookmarks file. But that file seems just to list deleted bookmarks by recent dates.. Whereas I need to restore the list of deleted bookmark FOLDERS to my active bookmark list and status.

I hope someone can help me. I'd be willing to provide a telephone number, though I guess that's generally inadvisable. Otherwise my e-mail address -- which you may already have -- is xxxxxx@xxxxxxxxxx.xxx

Thank you for any help.

hi I understand Firefox is still a browser but has added other features / functions now these extra added functions and features are causing problems for me and amongst others does not allow me access to other websites and services fex Firefox clashes with 1Password and makes it difficult to access my 1 Password account

Is there a way I can continue with Firefox as a Browzer only and delete all other functions and features added ? and that I by mistake have started saying yes to but understanding what this is all about no longer want to subscribe to As it no longer serves my purpose. greatful for a reply kind regards Ann

I want to restore part of a large bookmark library, say 100 out of 800. I have both HDMI and JSON backups but they seem to want to only restore the entire library. I seem to be constantly "loosing" segments of my bookmarks. Some time later, they seem to show back up.???

I have a strobe sensitivity and visual motion sensitivity, so the default Firefox settings aren't safe for me.

(For example, the default settings have flashingcursors, autoscroll, smooth scrolling, autoplay enabled, no ad blocker installed, etc.)

I can't use a new profile unless I can copy over all my existing safety and accessibility fixes. Besides about:preferences, that includes a number of fixes to about:config, userChrome.css, userContent.css, and a number of add-ons.

I am not quite sure what the Autoconfig can do, or how to set it up, but I understand I would need to manually track down and copy all my safety settings, which isn't even possible with the current about:config. And wasn't practical with the old one.

Anyway, trying to follow debugging instructions, which often involve creating new profiles, and then copying everything to these profiles so I can test them relatively safely, has gradually screwed up my Firefox installation. A lot of freezes, the url bar going unresponsive, etc.

Maybe if I can sync to a dummy location and then back I can fix this. I don't know what else I can do.

My bookmarks have been lost. I think they're gone forever. I really needed them for work. A certain person hacked into my 1password account. I know it's "impossible" but not if someone knows you and is determined and smart. Anyway, he changed the email associated with my account, but not the password. I was logging in, and was prompted to enter the "original" email. Huh? I tried various ways to access my account to no avail. I had a recovery key, but no place to enter it. A different email worked. But my bookmarks are gone. Any ideas on how i can recover them?

Hello,

I wrote in about an hour ago, but clicking Submit resulted in a blank page - no acknowledgement or notice from you in email since. Pls forgive if you get this twice.

I was clearing Recent History when FF crashed and lost many important open tabs. This happened with V. 93.

I back up daily with Time Machine. I'm wondering if there's a file in Application Support or elsewhere it can restore to bring the tabs back?

System profile attached.

Any help appreciated. Peter
