I am currently having problems with my Firefox browser. For example often if I type something into the google search box at the right of the address bar and hit return nothing happens until I go down and select Bing instead of the google setting. Also in hotmail (I am on a desktop) if I go to reply, the original is now ether twice. This does not happen if I use Google browser. But I prefer Firefox as I have used it for years.

My concern is if I delete Firefox and reinstall it, I may lose some of the settings or bookmarks that I have set over the years.

Any suggestions? Please simple as i am old and not computer savvy.

Your help would be so appreciated. I am currently on Firefox 107.0 (64 bit)

Thanks, Anthony

I want all downloads and files to save to a specific folder on an external hard drive. It used to go there. But now, even when I change the location in "settings" and "about:config", when I save it goes to "Documents". Right now, but say it's set to my desired location, but when I do a "save as" it goes right to "Documents", as if "settings" isn't even there.

How to I get the save location to stay where I want it to be every time?

I can't figure out how to install Firefox on Windows 11. Their link gets me to APPS in Setting but from there I'm lost. I can't find in APPS where to allow for apps from third parties. I think MS does this on purpose.

The original way I set up my account was with [edited] @unseen.is; showing with the little icon next to it in the upper right corner of the page (Lockwise)

That ISP is no longer functioning. Therefore, when signing in, the prompt says, to "check my email". But of course I can't because it no longer exists!

I can't seem to figure out how to change it to This one from which I'm sending this message from: [edited] @proton.me

However I did change the https://accounts.firefox.com in the Firefox Lockwise. (See attached image)

After over a decade i am finally getting a new computer. It's in the mail. Any day now...

I wish to transfer my entire FF configuration to a new computer (when it arrives, up to 10 days from now-). Bookmarks, extensions, themes, look, feel, bells and whistles, all in one swoop.

I do have a sync account but i am honestly afraid to use it. I stopped syncing some time ago when i was trouble shooting and now i fear that if i turn sync on it might overwrite the configuration i am presently running with whatever was stored once some time ago.

Because i have done some colossally stupid things in the past that resulted in great data loss and many weeks of recovery, this time i think it best not to presume i will figure it out, but instead to ask you folks, the experts-

Many thanks, -Bruce

I am running the latest version of Firefox as of 11/23/22. My main computer is not working (can't get its logon to work) so I am using my tablet which has more or less the same version of Firefox(one week difference). Please don't tell me to copy profile files from the old computer - I can not get on. Nor can I sync for the same reason.

On 11/10, I exported my passwords from Firefox and my bookmarks. The Passwords are in an excel csv file which I can open and read. The bookmarks are in a json file.

I tried to import the passwords after using the config signon solution offered by Boca. Firefox opens the folder and supposedly opens the file, but no passwords are imported. Please tell me how to make this work or fix the bug. I really don't want to cut and paste 300+ passwords.

I also tried to import the bookmarks, but it doesn't seem to have a way to do that.

Please help.

Thank you
