Hi,

Running Firefox 38 on Linux Mint 17.2.

I was rearranging my bookmarks and wanted to move one of the folders to the top, placing it above the default 'Mozzila' bookmark. The folder I moved disappeared and I could no longer locate it.

Advice on the forums recommended running an import in the 'Show All Bookmarks' window. I had not previously run a manual backup myself. Thinking the last file may contain the deleted folder, I imported the backup shown for today.

Consequently all my bookmarks disappeared.

Is this normal, and how can I go about restoring my old bookmarks? Are the deleted ones placed in a temporary folder somewhere?

Thanks.

I have a development system that is isolated from the internet. I am stuck using FF42 because any of the later versions will disable FireBug 2.0.14 because the browser can't contact the Mozilla servers to verify that FIreBug is legit.

I CANNOT CONNECT THIS DEV SYSTEM TO THE INTERNET! IT IS IMPOSSIBLE. HOW CAN I CONVINCE FireFox 44 THAT FIREBUG IS OKAY TO USE???

Mozilla, you are making it damn near impossible to stay loyal. If this keeps up, I'll soon be an ex-FF user. Kindly fix this.

After that, it will ask if you want to quit firefox or open it in safe mode. I just open it in safe mode. Close it, re-open it. Now it is normal. Does anyone know what the problem is and how to fix this? Thanks.

Is there a way to avoid this (about:config?) without invoking the almighty AdblockPlus?

Lost the hard drive on laptop. Trying to recover from backups. The profiles in the backup has bookmark backups with a .jsonlz4.mhe filetype. Firefox ESR 38.5.1 on my rebuilt system does not support that file type. It is looking for .json and .jsonlz4 files. This is a work computer. I dont think the version on the lost system was ESR.

What is the difference in the types and how do i recover from the .jsonlz4.mhe ?

In trying to change my text and background colors to handle high contrast web pages, I can open the color choices page, but it does not display correctly.. The window is too small to show the whole page; it will not maximise. In fact, I can't do anything with it at all. I choose the colors, but I can't tab or scroll to the OK box. Hitting return doesn't work. Closing the window leaves me with my original colors. It's Firefox 38.5, Linux (Debian = Iceweasel)

Hi On at least 6 occasions when I have used Firefox for downloading, it fails to download files correctly, what happens after about 3 minutes is an error message saying Failed I generally enjoy using Firefox but it cannot be viewed reliable. Opera on the other hand does the same file download perfectly. The file was from Sourceforge a iso image file of 667Mb Firefox managed just 42.2Mb before failing. Some more work is needed to make downloads comparable in reliability to Opera

My operating system is linux Mint 17.1 xfce

I've googled. I've read so many answers, and tried them all.

browser.sessionstore.restore* browser.tabs.load*

None of the related answers actually prevents firefox from loading tabs (homepage|homepage|homepage) at startup.

So please. Like I am five years old and to preserve it for posterity, someone explain how to stop firefox from loading homepage tabs automatically at startup. I want them to load when I click on them, or if I close the tab, to not otherwise materially affect startup/ready time.
