FF 92.0 MacOS - Developer Tools - Network/Disable Cache does not reload the page.

There are similar questions - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1302582 - with no answers that get archived. Why would they be archived if there are no answers? Will this just be another one?

I'm loading a local file, not via a web server. In Developer Tools / Network tab I have Disable Cache checked. When I change the file, FF does not load the new content - on Cmd-R, reload button, reload from the Network tab. Browsers used to have a handy keyboard shortcut to force a full page reload, but now that is gone. I even tried clearing all storage for the page.

It is very tedious to close the tab, open a new tab, open Developer Tools, and enter the local file URL once again for every change! Why can't there be a simple way to force this? I even tried about:config browser.cache.check_doc_frequency set to 1. Why do none of these approaches work any longer?

Hi,

My hard drive crashed and I was able to recover the files. I need to recover my Firefox history file. I know it is stored in the profiles folder as places.sqlite. What I need to do is open the file so I can see the history and recover the needed data.

I'm working from a data recovery disk (the source computer is still down). Is there a way to open the file and see it in Firefox? Or, is there a way to export the data into a format that can be read by Excel?

Thanks very much for your help!

Hello, I'm using Firefox 92.0.1 for Mac OS (10.12.6). Upon restarting my computer, my bookmarks were lost. First, it was stated that "The bookmark and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software may cause this problem." When I tried to restore the old bookmarks, it there was a list from which I could select, but every choice resulted in an "unable to process the backup file" response. Upon restarting my computer and reinstalling Firefox, It now said "for quick access, place bookmarks here on the bookmarks toolbar." That said, it won't let me do so.

I've tried the other recommendations offered through support for restoring bookmarks (though, admittedly, many were outdated, referencing links circa 2016), and have had no luck so far. If the worst case scenario is that the old bookmarks can't be accessed, is there at least a way to reestablish the bookmark and history system and start anew?

Thanks in advance. (Attached below are examples of the error message.

I use Firefox on mac OS 11.5.2 and the system language is English so is the main display language in Firefox (so I see File - Edit-View etc. on top in English) However whenever I try to print something or save a page the window that opens up is in Turkish. I tried to change this from preferences -> setting-> general -> language (which shows English US as default with Turkish as the second on the list) but the "remove" button is not active.

The info on Firefox Troubleshooting Information page is like this: (not sure if it is because of one of these)

Internationalization & Localization Application Settings Requested Locales ["en-US"] Available Locales ["en-US","tr"] App Locales ["en-US","tr"] Regional Preferences ["en-TR","tr-TR","el-TR"] Default Locale "tr" Operating System System Locales ["en-TR","tr-TR","el-TR"] Regional Preferences ["en-TR","tr-TR","el-TR"]

I also tried from Mac System Preferences -> Language&Region -> Apps I tried to add Firefox and select the language but language selection is not active (in gray "System Default-Turkish" is written and the message under that says Firefox doesn't support additional languages. For other apps like Word etc. system default language shows as English no problem.

Thank you

Firefox seems to reset to a newly downloaded state without reason. All my bookmarks and custom settings are lost. This has happened several times now and I do not know if it is a BigSur issue or a Firefox issue. My Mac was just updated to BigSur and I did not have this problem on Catalina. I am about to give up on Firefox because of this issue.
