when creating firefox account, i entered 0 as my age, because i saw no reason for ffox to ask for this private info. after that, firefox told me i am too young to have an account and there was no way to go back!

just another horrible act on ffox part that does not surprise me at all after seeing so many :(

if this happens to you, here is the solution: find the firefox cookies and delete them (see image)

I work on computers without admin rights, and i can't install add-ons,

how to make a true portable Firefox without using registry at all

I really don't understand that a free software allows such a blocking, even if chrome doesn't pose any problem with add-ons.

is there a way to lanuch firefox with a option to not use registry or to redirect registry in file or in a not locked custom registry like

hkey_local_machine/software/policies/Mozilla_portable/Firefox

or something like that ?

I'm buying a new win 10 laptop soon. Is it possible to copy the the settings from a virtual windows 10 64 bit I just set up. It is easy to export the bookmarks as html but could i set up the desktop/add ons etc. I have used classic shell and winaero tweak to make it look like win 7. I don't like 10 and would be buying 7 if i could.

Could i copy the profile onto the laptop. I think the laptop is 64 bit, would it matter if it wasn't

This PC is win 7 64 bit desktop and i know the firefox 77.01 is out of date. I don't like the changes

I was wondering if their was a way to switch the find bar bar back to the old way of searching. The way it is now is annoying. When I use find it's usually the same search across multiple tabs. Now I have to open the find in each tab and if I change the find in one tab it doesn't change across the other find bars so I now have to change each individually. Thanks.

I'm on Mac. When I open a PDF in Firefox I get a print button and a download button. The download button does not offer a Save As option. It simply uses the name used in the browser - often this is a number or day or some other appellation that is less useful than allowing me to rename the PDF myself. Chrome offer to rename the file before saving but I hate Chrome.

Maybe I'm overlooking something?

Edited to correct some history -- so the followng transcript may be a bit out of synch -- I will state my current question below.

Two things happened at the same time -- I uninstalled Adobe Flash, and a Windows Update ran. I didn't notice the Windows update, so I blamed the wrong thing, the Flash uninstall. It was WIndows.

The Windows update caused all my bookmarks and history (and most cookies) to disappear. I'm on Firefox 68.10.0esr

I found my Profiles at C:\Users\[me]\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles but I don't understand what's in there enough to fish the bookmarks out, and I don't see anything that looks like "15 backups" promised by the Mozilla help pages.

Where are my Bookmark backups?

I am no longer able to add or delete my bookmarks. When I right click delete for a bookmark, nothing happens. When I click to add a bookmark, nothing happens. This still occurs when I start firefox in safe mode. I have tried turning on sync to see if I could edit my bookmarks from my mobile, but the bookmarks failed to sync. I do not have any add-ons. I currently am on a linux OS installed on a macbook. I did not have this problem until the past month or so.

Zotero - How to get it to work with FF bookmarks

Some people recommended here using Zotero in order to keep the functionality of the "Description" field in bookmarks which was taken away after v. 62. Unfortunately a) There is zero information here on actually using it and achieving any sort of acceptable results re: bookmarks, and b) It's complicated and it doesn't even import the bookmarks file.

I installed Zotero v 5. Have to also install Zotero for Firefox extension. This is hidden in documentation (one or the other does basically nothing, have to install both). I tried to import FF bookmarks.html, it proceeded to use 50% of CPU resources, memory used by the program went up to 800 MB, and after 15 minutes the import bar was at 0%. I tried to import the bookmarks.json file, it doesn't support it.

Any suggestions?

Hi,

I have reinstalled my Debian, keeping of course my `/home`. New Firefox version is `68.12.0esr`. A new profile has been created, but I need the old one which I can set as default in the profile manager at the url `about:profiles`, but Firefox tells me "Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history.....". So, it seems I need to install the same version of Firefox I had before, but I don't know which one it was, and I would like to avoid to make many trials.

Is there a mean to know which Firefox version is associated to a given profile?

Please Quit The Constant Update Windows until the newer Firefox versions actually work for W7!!!! Remember , W7 computers are not able to get the updates for make whatever is making all site buttons and switches disapprear. To new Firefox is also like Malware, very time consuming to uninstall, and I only can go to the latest full version I had saved. I have been a loyal user and contributer since the beginning, so Please Make Forefox Polite Again!

hello,

since last Update in Windows 10 Enterprise to Build 20231.1000 i get a 'Blue Stop Screen', when i try to move the Mouse Cursor to the MenuBar ONLY of Nightly or Firefox.

I have the same Error on Nightly AND Firefox, i have restart the Browsers with disabled Add-Ons, i have reset the Browsers, deinstalled and new installed, i have try it with older Versions, but every time, when i come with the Cursor to the MenuBar, Windows stop.

I Know, that the showed Error 'APC_index_Mismatch win32kfull.sys' is a Windows Error, but this Error comes only with Firefox and Nightly, but on no other Software and Programs. I disabled all not neccessary Services, i start with normal Mode, nothing works. i deinstalled a lot of drivers and next try: no Help, same Error.

Also i tried WaterFox, and funnily, there is NO problem or stopping...

Somebody with same problem, somebody know the answer?
