Howdy, fellow Firefox aficionados.

I'm running FF on a Windows 10 Home 64-bit desktop. Some time ago, I suddenly could no longer open Firefox because it couldn't find my Profile. So, I attempted to create a new one, but it would not allow me to do so.

"Changes Not Saved"

   "An unexpected Error has prevented your changes from being saved."

[See uploaded Image]

More than likely, either I, or one of my system maintenance programs wiped some data or folder. I have deleted Firefox and reinstalled it with the latest version, but this dilemma persists.

Thanks for reading my post and if you reply, a big Thanks!

I can get IMAP emails from Slashmail, but I cannot send emails. The online documentation I found seems old. Do you have updated information on what settings I would need? Also, what are the settings for a @comcast.net account, as I'm unable to get that setup as well. Thanks.

Hi,

I have downloaded VR files on FR but when I play them, it appears to play it as audio file only.

Is there a way to view the files outside of FR? As I cant find them on File Manager.

Or to play them properly using FR?

Slow Download Speeds Ubuntu 20.04

As the subject says, my download speeds are painfully slow (~200KB/s) and they have been for a while. My download speed is ~85Mbps and I use Ubuntu 20.04.

Installing a download manager extension only improved the speed to ~300KB/s (I tried Multithreaded Download Manager. I also tried increasing the number of threads in preferences to no effect).

The problem has persisted over time and across multiple restarts. This problem does not persist in other applications (Steam, for example).Neither disabling my VPN or running sudo UFW disable affected the speed (didn't restart because UFW disable doesn't require a restart [I think] and due to the above paragraph).

All solutions I have found have been related only to Windows users, hence why I am asking this even though there is a plethora of threads on this same issue. Any responses and help is appreciated!

Moving Tbird Profile folder - Tbird fails to see Profile on new PC

To move my Thunderbird Profile to a new computer (Windows 7 to Windows 10 Pro), I used the instructions at: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/moving-thunderbird-data-to-a-new-computer#thunderbird:win7:tb91

I followed the instructions exactly. After pasting my profile, I opened Thunderbird. it is telling me "Your Thunderbird profile can not be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible".

BEFORE I moved my profile to the new computer, the profile on the new computer has 2 files with random characters. AFTER moving the profile from the old to the new computer, the new computer had 4 files with random numbers in the profile folder. The file I copied on the old computer was the "Profile" folder. When pasting, the new computer did not ask if I wanted to replace the folder. After pasting, I opened Thunberbird and got the error shown above.

I decided to delete the Profile folder on the new computer. I then pasted the profile folder from my old computer. The profile folder on the new computer shows the 2 files with random numbers. I still got the error shown above when I opened Thunderbird.

Hi,

I have a fresh installation of my Macbook OS, and a fresh Mozilla Firefox installation. I would like to re-import my old passwords and log ins, but it seems that the new version of the browser doesn't have that option unfortunately. I can see only Import from Other Platforms options, but not import from file or similar.

I have .csv file, but no option of how to import in into my browser.

I would appreciate help on this one. Thank you in advance.

I have been able to move my profiles and Thunderbird is working correctly. However, I cannot find/get my local folders (the TB equivalent of a PST file) to move to my new system so I can still have access to all those save emails and records. I have searched here and cannot find a clear answer on how to get those files moved. Any help (please dub it down a little for me :) is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
