Between two Win10 Home PCs, both used to have all my Saved Logons, but somehow one PC has dropped them all. Both PCs do use Firefox Sync between successfully, but while that synchronizes Bookmarks (& whatever else), evidently NOT "Saved Logons". So, isn't there some way to EXPORT all of them to a file, to then IMPORT them to my other PC? Incidentally, within Saved Logons, there is a button named IMPORT, but it's used is only for importing from 3 other designated browsers, and apparently on the self-same PC. Searching Firefox Support was a waste of time ... their 'results' are just wide nets of hundreds of irrelevant things, no matter how precise I attempt each search. Bad support job on self-help, Mozilla.

I've been through my settings and Firefox does allow me to save login info for other websites. It just refuses to allow me to save my login for Zoom.us. I thought this might be a website issue but no because I am able to save my Zoom.us login info using other browsers.

So how do I get Firefox to function correctly?

Thanks.

So, hovers are proliferating across all sites. They've gotten so bad now that I can't do anything without stupid crap popping up covering up what I'm trying to do. Tooltips, navigation menus, videos starting on hover, you name it. It's GARBAGE user experience, and I can't understand why anyone thinks this is okay. They're popping up everywhere all the time, 99.9999% of the time when I don't want it. It makes complex sites like Amazon totally miserable to even try to use for someone like me who's easily distracted.

So, I desperately need a solution at this stage. The internet is a graveyard of sites I can't visit because they drive me up the wall and ruin my day.

Someone previously recommended adblockers for this, but I use three adblockers (like I said, easily distracted by garbage), and none of them kill hovers.

How do I make hovers stop activating content and instead ONLY work on-click. Thanks!

Google maps worked great until the latest update of Firefox 2 days ago. Now when I go to the maps I get a Google page that says " We are sorry, but you do not have access to Google Maps. Please contact your Organization Administrator for access."

I know it's not my ISP, as the maps works fine in both IE and Seamonkey browsers. Any ideas what has happened in the last update that broke it?

Replying to forum posts in multiline textboxes (textare) do not work properly. I have noticed this mostly on Reddit.com however it has happened in other sites as well. Especially when cutting and pasting text, text can't be deleted, text gets cut off , basically it just goes bonkers and acts strangely. I am usually forced to use Chrome when this happens and in Chrome it works fine.

Is it possible to restore a lost session after another session was started?

I relogged my PC then a firefox window opened (not my homepage) which i accidently closed. Then i opened firefox and it opened to my homepage. I clicked restore previous session but all that was there was the page i had just closed that i had not wanted.

I tried crashing firefox and opening previous session but still brings me to this session.

Is my only option to go through my history for last many months to open all these tabs I previosly had open in 2 pages?

I lost all faith in Firefox a few years ago after a botched upgrade ruined it, so I downgraded and stopped upgrading entirely. The new interface is garbage, and I hate it. Everything HAS to be a distracting theme. Stupid.

But I'm finally trying to upgrade anyway for security reasons. When I try to use the new version of Firefox, I try to import my bookmarks, and only the bookmarks NOT inside the Bookmarks Toolbar import. Obviously, this means I can't upgrade, and I sure as hell am not risking upgrading this browser directly, since I have zero faith in Mozilla these days.

My question to Mozilla: Why can't we just import directly from another version of Firefox like I could if I'd been smart enough to use Chrome instead? And I receive a bloody warning when I open it, telling me to either create a new profile or quit, so there isn't even an option to import my bookmarks directly! I'm honestly thinking about just dropping you for Chrome at this point. It would just be easier.

My question to everyone: WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO to get my bookmarks toolbar imported? I export. I import. NOTHING.

Thanks!
