Hello,

My password saved are deleted every time I close FF. It used to be manageable because Google and other sites didn't require me to fill my passwords (cookies did the trick I suppose) but now I also loose access to gmail and Youtube every time I close FF. It's annoying to have to use 2FA every damn time. And keeping the passwords available.

I've tried every answer I found by looking around :

- tried to start in safe mode - disable hardware acceleration - I have no extensions

FF saves the passwords correctly (at least they appear in the saved password tab) but they are erased every time I restart FF. The cookies aren't automatically deleted (FF remembers my browsing history) but I need to relog into Google.

I getting frustrated.

The animated images of the articles are loaded once every 3. On Chrome Android I have no problem.


I solve it manually by resizing the page, so they load.

Where could the problem be? In the animation of their site? Do you have any advice on a fix?

Incomplete bookmarks when creating new places.sqlite or using the restore feature.

I'm trying to load a jsonlz4 backup of 88.4 mb with 1 146 851 items. When creating a new places.sqlite, the majority of the bookmarks inside Other Bookmarks don't have a location url. Like this:

Name_____________| Location


Normal bookmark | site.com My problem_______|

I tried using https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/bookbackreader.html to convert it into html and json. Importing the html into firefox puts everything into the Bookmarks Menu and everything is missing their location url. Opening the html in writer I see that every bookmark does have its location url but as hyperlinks on the names. Restoring the json, 1 time after not clicking the Check/Repair JSON button and another time after clicking it, gives me all the bookmarks in their correct place but the majority are still missing their location urls.

I also tried creating another places.sqlite with my jsonlz4 backup and exporting as html and json through the bookmarks Library. Importing them, separately, into new firefox profiles just gives me the bookmarks that weren't missing links.

Also tried creating a places.sqlite in windows but it stopped before the Other Bookmarks folder, I guess.

I don't know if its relevant but between restarts and shutdows I always have 18 kmozillahelper processes before even starting firefox. I don't know since when they haven been there or if they have increased.

Any ideas on how to restore correcly my bookmarks?

How do I report something as "b roken" to firefox and do you agree it is broken?

I have recently been getting an error message when I open Firefox saying "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem". This has been happening since I clicked on a mail in Mail to unsubscribe from a spam/phishing mail list, which seemed to result in me installing Firefox Private Browsing, which I had never subscribed to. I have tried uninstalling Private Browsing but there is no way of doing that. I have even uninstalled and then re-installed Firefox completely but I still have the same problem. Because of the problem I have now lost all my bookmarks and history, and am unable to create new bookmarks and history. I have been on the help forums and seen that I can Disable Private Browsing by going through my anti-virus (Avast), which I have not yet tried because what I would really like to achieve is uninstalling and not having Private Browsing on my Start menu, rather than simply disabling it. Anyway, would disabling it solve the bookmarks and history problem ? Can anyone give me the solution ? Thanks. As you may gather, I am not very techno so you would have to give me the idiot's version of any instructions or advice.

Until now it would only appear when I wanted it to, but now it's doing it on its own and it's annoying as ****. I've tried everything I can think of to stop this, so I'm giving you all the outstanding opportunity to help me remedy this aggravation. Many great thanks in advance!
