Got one response from a volunteer but that response, unfortunately, was for Windows. I'm on a Mac...

When I select the bookmark, Firefox does nothing, apparently.

iPhone works just fine on sites that Firefox won't access, so it's not the modem or the ISP.

Thanks in advance!

Turned on my imac this morning and the Firefox browser gave a "Error code: SEC_ERROR_BAD_SIGNATURE" for every page I tried to open. I have reinstalled the browser and that one is working properly. However, when I try to add Dashlane to it, the old browser opens and the same error message is displayed making it impossible to use Dashlane on the newer version of the browser. How can I get rid of the version that opens up when I try to install Dashlane on the working browser?

Please continue here: [/questions/1330399]
Possible causes are that security software if blocking access to places.sqlite in the Firefox profile folder.

Did you try to close and restart Firefox or reboot the computer ?

Thank you for your prompt reply.

I do not have any security software that would suddenly block access and it was working fine until yesterday morning.

I have closed and restarted Firefox several times and followed your advice. I have also rebooted my computer.

With the 'Show all Bookmarks' page open on my MAC desktop monitor screen i accidentally deleted all of my bookmark folders (listed alphabetically) following those beginning with the letter 'P'. I am in REAL trouble unless i can restore those deleted folders to the active list.

i tried following the suggestion that i open up my 'profile' in 'Library' and i found the deletedbookmarks file. But that file seems just to list deleted bookmarks by recent dates.. Whereas I need to restore the list of deleted bookmark FOLDERS to my active bookmark list and status.

I hope someone can help me. I'd be willing to provide a telephone number, though I guess that's generally inadvisable. Otherwise my e-mail address -- which you may already have -- is xxxxxx@xxxxxxxxxx.xxx

Thank you for any help.

Firefox is behaving strangely after updating to Big Sur. At first, the program would open but would not display an open window. I was able to open a new window from the Firefox menu, and now a window opens automatically upon starting Firefox again (although it actually flickers 1 time upon opening.) But this issue seems to be solved.

More importantly, my previous session did not restore after the update. And the tabs that I had open are not the ones that show under "recently closed tabs." Can anyone help me find these? (I do have this option selected in my preferences.) I believe that they are in my history, somewhere but that would be like looking for a needle in a haystack. Please help! Thank you.

My bookmarks have been lost. I think they're gone forever. I really needed them for work. A certain person hacked into my 1password account. I know it's "impossible" but not if someone knows you and is determined and smart. Anyway, he changed the email associated with my account, but not the password. I was logging in, and was prompted to enter the "original" email. Huh? I tried various ways to access my account to no avail. I had a recovery key, but no place to enter it. A different email worked. But my bookmarks are gone. Any ideas on how i can recover them?

My electronic certificates have disappeared from the firefox container: A few days ago my electronic certificates have disappeared from the firefox container The certificate provider has vetoed me from delivering a new certificate, because it is the second time Firefox has lost a certificate in 2020. The certificates I need for any management before the administration of Spain and more now with the COVID After it is granted, you have to verify your identity with the Tax Agency, and they have already called my attention for renewing the same year a certificate that firefox loses when it is updated. I'm very, very pissed off I will have to switch to Chrome

What I believe to be a mozilla site "https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/" has all the older FF versions but when I downloaded the Mac OS version 81.0 which is the en-US version it does not have the new credit card feature and it also does not have D.O.H. active by default.

The sha256 hash is c4975a1a73dd1976e1f58cf5822921d25f2fb4a0e092897037e039d7ac6b8a67

It should be en-US but it does not have the new credit card feature in the menu. Why? Is FTP site no longer valid?
