I cannot find an old Firefox folder. I have looked in profile and found 2 logins.json files, dated 21.03 & 09.03, the earlier says corrupt, have copied both together with the sqlite file. How do I open these files to check them ? Tried Firefox in Safe Mode, still no logins. Help would be appreciated, thank you

I am working on a project to be able to parse all extensions installed on a computer for each user profile on the computer. I have researched what I can, and haven't really found a good method of doing so. I was hoping that you may be able to assist me with a PowerShell (or the like) script that can be run which would output that type of information?

Thanks!

Somehow I got Adblock Plus and it's been nothing but trouble. First I noticed ads that weren't there before, then it kept opening new windows about just downloading ABP and it won't keep my settings. Last week I wrote an email asking for help and didn't get a reply. This ABP Plus is a MESS.

1. It won't keep my settings.

2. Right now I have no fewer than 5 "Installation" tabs in my browser. How do I make them STOP? It started after this last time that I updated your program.

3. Right now I don't even know if it's working right. How can I go back to the last version that didn't foul up?

Today, I went to Firefox website and was going to download to plain old Adblock but that page said it was not monitored. see attachment. So I went to the Mozilla website. see attachment. When I clicked on "Recommended extensions may also be found while browsing with FF...." it took me to a page that didn't have anything about AdBlock. Over an hour later, I ended up right back where I started from. I'm exhausted and I give up trying to follow links that take me back again and trying to describe how it's taking me round in circles. How do I go back to the old AdBlock? It worked well for me, didn't make me reset every time I open my browser and actually blocked ads. Firefox, Windows 8.1 latest versions. Please reply in simple English I am a senior and techy words just make my head swim. If someone replies and I don't reply back, it may be that I can't get on the internet, the wifi here is lousy at best and most of the time, not at all. I try to get on the internet several times a day, if someone replies I will reply as soon as I can. Don't give up on me. Thanks, Bernadine

I have Kaspersky Total Security which is great for on line banking because it uses Safe Money, but since the latest updates from Firefox I am unable to use it. I keep getting an error message in some sites and others won't even open at all it goes straight to the normal window without protection. As kaspersky is a add on, do I have to grant permission in private browsing to allow this site to be accessed. kaspersky do not know what is causing the problem and believe it is Firefox that is causing the issue. To be honest Kaspersky has talked me through several procedures and still it will not work.

So, do I need to grant permission in private browsing and if so how do I do this please as I have looked at several forums and I would be grateful for some clarification?

Many thanks

When I access the bandconditions.com main page it updates the screen every ten minutes or so. But there is a thing called "lexity" which blanks the screen after what it thinks is some number of minutes of non-use. Actually the screen is used but only to read what it says, not with any input from me. Not only does this malware have this unwanted effect but it bloats the 2kbytes transmission with an additional 4kbytes of very much unwanted javascript.

I realize I probably prevent the (Yahoo owned) server from sending this malware but I should at least be able to spot that it is unwanted javascript and throw it away thus not blanking the screen and wasting my time waiting for a screen refresh when I do need it.

So it there an addon that specifically targets lexity (and preferably other nuisanceware)?

Recently Firefox always starts in firstrun mode. I have tried various ways to stop this happening. I have: 1. Refreshed Firefox 2. I dont have Zencast, Mcafee or Norton 360. Nothing else on my machine changed. 3. I don't have a user.js file.

I have been using Firefox for years as a developer. Its becoming unusable for me. I can't waste so much time trying to get it to work.

I am trilingual and thus installed support for English, Spanish and German and while on my phone, the keyboard is getting smart enough to guess sort of, which language I am writing the current word in, on the Desktop Browser I am not happy at all with how language needs manual switching. Worse, it shows completely pointless locales that I never consciously installed or asked for. 5 English locales, 6 German locales and 22 Spanish locales doesn't make it easier to switch languages. I end up picking random locales with the occasional surprises but would prefer to hide all but one locale per language, with a hotkey to cycle through or pick. How can I achieve a smoother language switching?

I love both the browser and the service and it is annoying (and inexplicable) not to be able to sign in from Firefox. Please help. Thank you

Every laptop on our organization are installed with softphone apps which is x-lite. Thus, we had developing some portal on web to make it easier make some call. Basically the portal contains sip link with some number followed by colons.

Our orginzation use Firefox ESR 52.7.3. To make firefox able to handle sip protocol, we add some configuration on about:config as bellow

   network.protocol-handler.expose.sip -> Value -> false

After that, whenever our user click some sip link, the browser would triggered x-lite application. At the first time, the pop up launch application will be shown and then end user will choose default application to handle sip link.

Our client running on Windows Machine.

However, for our user to change about:config and choose default application launcher are hard to do. Hence we need to develop simply way to approach that.

So we think to make a pre-configured Firefox ESR which is comes with custom build configuration and default launch application are the solution for our problem.

I had read from several article that talk about deploying firefor for enterprise that comes with some configuration on default/pref as this link refer https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Firefox/Enterprise_deployment_before_60#Configuration. But the Firefox it self aren't ready to download.

However, Is it that any possible way to pre-configured installed? How to customize the installer?

Thanks

I did a new install of openSUSE and everything worked normally, until I started up Firefox. Somebody decided to improve Firefox so that, once started, it starts itself automatically. That is not very friendly. Now, I cannot figure out how to undo the damage. Googling gets me to look in ~/.config/autostart* directories. They are both empty. Using about:config in the address bar and a gazillion entries. Searching for "autostart" yields nothing useful. Besides, that would only be read once Firefox starts and it should never start until I tell it to.

So, two things: 1) How to I prevent this blasted thing from starting every time, and 2) Please fix your interface so that when you decide to be "helpful" without human intervention, *DO* be humanly helpful by making the undoing of your help more obvious.

Thank you.
