Trouble restoring firefox from backup

Hi,

After losing my session history and bookmarks from using firefox's "forget last 5 minutes" feature on accident, I used shadowcopyview to create a backup of my old profile. Now, after two reinstalls, I still cannot recover my session or bookmarks, even when replacing the old profile entirely.

JeffersonCher's wonderful scrounger has helped me to recover from a similiar blunder in the past, but this time, attempting to recover the session from a recovery file gave me 3 websites I haven't visited in 2 years and an error message when attempting to recover the bookmarks.

Anything you can provide would be a big help: I am very confused on how to really proceed.

Thanks!

Hello,

Everytime I start typing "Facebook.com" into the addressbar the first suggestion is a site "Fastcompany.com." I will often just type "Fa" and hit enter which takes me to fastcompany.com instead of facebook.com. Firefox never used to do this. I am unable to delete fastcompany.com from the suggested list. I have tried every method, checked my bookmarks, delted my history, cleared all cookies and cache, I even installed an addon to block the site but the suggestion still remains. How do I remove it so that when I type "fa" and press enter I go to facebook instead of fastcompany?

Thanks

Hope someone can hlep with this, it has been going on for weeks now. I am a member of a survey site, and for the past few weeks, when I log onto this site to do a survey, I always get a message saying there was an error in the survey, and I am returned to the homepage. I've sent a huge amount of emails to the survey site help centre, and to my isp, and I keep getting told there is nothing wrong with me account for the survey site, or my internet connection to this site. My ISP has asked my to do all sorts of tests etc., and all come back as normal, and yet the survey site cannot find or fix the issue. I am asked to use a different browser, so I have tried all three that I might use, Firefox, Edge, and Chrome, all the latest updated ones etc., and with the non Firefox browsers I get a message saying my account is suspended (survey site account), so now I am confused and annoyed.

Can anyone help sort this out please as I am now thinking it might be an issue with Firefox? Who knows...but it is very odd that I can access all other survey sites, no issues, and yet this one site will not allow me to do any surveys.

Ever since I updated my firefox version the search bar will be missing random letters when I type them, or the suggestions will be missing letters. However this is only a visual bug, since pressing enter will search for what I typed. I've restarted and reinstalled but its still like this. Just wondering if anyone has a fix. See attached images.

When logging into a couple of secure sites I am blocked with the attached error message. I've seen others with the same problem but their solution, forgetting the site, has not worked for me. I've got this message when using the NFCU site, and now the IRS account site. Both sites work normally with Edge.

After updating to Firefox version 87 on Mac, nearly every site I try to visit seems to be blocked. There is no warning or explanation shown it just fails to browse to the website. For example, I cannot browse to https://llbean.com. I understand that these websites have all sorts of trackers built-in, but this seems a bit ridiculous. I cannot find an explanation of how to fix this problem that is up-to-date and actually works.
