Hello, I just successfully downloaded Firefox Portable. The Wizard asked if I wanted it to load right up. I did. Nothing happened other than a very brief splash screen. I confirmed the exe's location. I set up a shortcut on Windows. I double click on it. I get the splash screen for a second or so. Then nothing. Anyone? Thank you much. I have run malware checks. I have added a firewall exception. I am flat out of ideas.

How to import bookmark descriptions into Bookmark Notes?

I have relied on the bookmark description field to store account numbers and login ID's almost since Mozilla Firefox was first released, and have 1000's of bookmarks! Loss of the description field is a major problem.

I have found info on the net that suggests using Bookmark Notes to replace the bookmark description field. This is fine, but means hours of work to manually transfer the data. The latest info on Bookmark Notes suggests that it is possible (or soon will be) to import the description field from a bookmarks.html backup file into Bookmark Notes.

Has anyone managed to do this? If yes, please tell me how to do it!

Thanks

I have lots of saved bookmarks and passwords in my old sync address and it won't let me upload them to my new address because it wants me to use old e-mail address to berify ownership and my old address was discontinued when I changed servers. It wouldn't let me just transfer e-mail sync. I had a crash and reloaded windows 7 and downloaded firefox but it wouldn't let me sync because I couldn't confirm my old e-mail address with old server, as that address was discontinued.

I just upgraded to Ubuntu 18.04 and neither Firefox or Thunderbird will connect to the internet. I can ping 8.8.8.8 just fine. I turned off the firewall and they still will not connect. They connected just fine before the upgrade. I changed the proxy to no proxy and system proxy. Still no luck. What am I missing?

Can someone tell me the difference between show all tabs from last time and load tabs. I'm trying to figure out why Firefox slows down and eventually crashes. I have close to 300 tabs but I have clicked on only a few. The rest I though were dormant. Still after a few days FF slows down. The last time I decided to restart FF I clicked on File and waited 17 minutes for the drop down menu that let me click on Exit. 23 minutes later FF crashed. So whatever is going on in the background has to be involved with why this is happening. The FF interface by the way had been closed for about 20 minutes before I got the crash notice. This is not about running MBAM,buying a new machine or upgrading to the ESR. to fix the problem. It's academic. i want to know why because all the recommendations to upgrade in the past have not improved the situation and recent upgrades made things worse. I will be doing the ESR upgrade in time but I want to be able to launch this version as well perhaps as a different user.

Firefox keeps sending me warning messages about updates that have links to the article that explains why support for XP and Vista is being ended. When I go to the "About Mozilla Firefox" page it tells me that "You can not perform further updates on this system" rather than telling me that I have the latest version. Its as though Firefox thinks that I am running XP or Vista when I am running Windows 10. Can you tell me if this is the case and if so, what can be done about it? Thanx.

All of a sudden, when I reboot my computer I get a message once I access Firefox saying my version of Firefox is out of date, but I can't download the current version because Firefox no longer supports Windows XP, which is the OS I use. Since I can't afford to upgrade my entire OS, how can I stop this message from appearing every time I reboot?

I use an old windows xp box. My Firefox browser is supposed to be unsupported due to its age but yesterday I got a message that the next time i restart it, some addons will be removed ie. Fire FTP. I don't care that you don't support it anymore but I do care that you remove an important tool that I use frequently. The last time it was removed I was able to download it again but I can't find it now. I have turned off the auto update so hopefully you don't mess anything else up. Is it possible to get it back?
