I was gifted an Amazon Fire Tablet to use for an upcoming hospital/rehab stay. I use Firefox on my desktop and Android phone and want to use it on my tablet, but the Amazon store doesn't have the app. Not sure I trust the Amazon Silk browser, but I may have no choice. I am not a tech savvy person! I don't know the difference between a bit, byte, or buttercup. If there is a way to install and use Firefox on my tablet, and sync with other devices, I would like to do so. Please explain how to do it as though you are talking to a 6 year old (who probably knows more about this stuff than I do, anyway). Thanks. rennylloyd

Hello All,

I am trying to import passwords & logins from a .csv file to FF version 82.0 I have enabled "import from a file" option and have a .csv file which I exported from FF version 81.0 I believe. I click on import from a file and browse to the file, click Open, and the dialog box disappears, BUT, the passwords don't appear in FF Lockwise, even after I restart FF. Makes me want to switch to Chrome when crap like this happens, or rather doesn't happen. Any help and advice gratefully received.

TIA, Dave.

Due to printer software I am forced to migrate family laptop from linux mint to windows 10 Both systems use version 82.0 (64bit), firefox just got installed on fresh windows 10 install, I opened it browsed a little to create history files and closed to swap it with linux history/passwords/tabs/bookmarks But in windows 10 firefox seem to have different file structure, and didn't recognize old version Have file structure changed or there are steps I missed or (unlikely) I messed up with file location, main mozilla/firefox folder path is still there

Will online synchronization of firefox just be as good as hard file copy from one system from another? I think this might be easiest, yet not perfect solution

new build & lost passwords

hi All, I had a disk crash and had to reinstall Win10, which cleverly backs up everthing in a .OLD file.

Back in the midst of time I did something 'clever' (Read: stupid) and by the looks of things (directory size) I kept my FF profile in MyDocuments (why???). Anyway, importing that profile has lost my passwords!!!

I have my bookmarks but they've been imported into a 'higher' directory and I need to view them through the popup box as they're not visible on the toolbar. I also have all my history and download history.

I'm a good boy and have a different password for every site and a variety of email addresses, so needless to say, it's going to be a pain to reset everything. I also imported the profiles from appdata\..\profiles but nothing of any use was there.

please help.

TIA Adrian

Hi, Firefox desktop for win 10: Firefox works with this one exception... I downloaded two "self extracting" files from Nikon. When I double click on either or any file of this type using firefox, I get "some installation files are corrupt, please re-download" If I use Microsoft edge, the same files work, provided I select "unblock" in the files properties tab. (yes I do this for ff files too)

This did not happen months ago and I'm sure this is because Microsfot has changed something, which needs all browsers to adapt to. Thx

Like I said, upgraded to Windows 10 over the weekend. Figured there would be some tweaks and hiccups, but this is getting out frustrating. We use Google Drive for work, often needing to download files from there. Upon attempting to download anything I'm redirected to a page with this error message:

"The page isn’t redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to doc-0o-6k-docs.googleusercontent.com.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies."

I've reinstalled, checked for updates, snagged java, flash, tried firefox safe mode, cleared cache and cookies, and I'm running out of ideas here. Seems to be no problem using Chrome, so problem is unique to firefox which is unfortunate since FF is my browser of choice.

Cheers for the help in advance!
