When installing Firefox, there is an option to import data from another browser. That feature is also available in the "Library -> Import and Backup -> Import data from Another Browser", and it imports things like Bookmarks and History from another browsers.

As the functionality already exists, is it possible to use that functionality in any way to import Bookmarks and History from a different profile in the same Firefox installation? I want to merge 2 different browsing history (like the old question https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/928204), and looks like using the "Import data from Another Browser" could help if it's possible to use it with another Firefox profile/directory.

Hello everyone,

Please test with all versions of Firefox. I was able to reproduce this consistently even after a complete reinstall or reset. For this case, ESR was checked and surprisingly it stays online even when offline mode is used upon start using profile manager. For this, you can create a new profile and start the browser in offline mode and search something in address bar. At first, you will be greeted with an offline mode message but if you hit refresh then the browser becomes online and the search results are now available. This is not just related to search results but any websites.

Hope you guys can provide some info as this is really unexpected behavior.

Thank you and looking forward to your suggestions

Test specs: Windows 7-10/Linux/Ubuntu Firefox version: ESR 102.5.0/Standard 107.0

On my personal home page, I have several links as in the subject: which I use to browse javadoc. Clicking on the link does nothing AFAICT. Is there some kind of configuration setting to get the "click" to work? (It used to work years ago)

There are some workarounds

Workaround One

  1. Copy Link (context menu action)
  2. Ctrl-L
  3. Paste link in search/open bar
  4. Return

Workaround Two

  1. Open Link in New Tab (context menu action)
  2. Click on New Tab
  3. Ctrl-L
  4. Return

Workaround two leave an unwanted open tab

After an update a couple of months ago, Tradingview graph somehow shrinked in size, yet the area for the graph stays the same with a white gap in between (please see the image). When I move the cursor within empty the area, it appears on the shrinked graph like where it has to be making it practically impossible to use.

I tried other Firefox distributions like LibreWolf, with the same result. Other browsers like Brave does not have this issue and the graph works just fine. I tried disabling graphic acceleration to no avail. I'm on Windows, I use several add ons like ublock, centraleyes, cookie autodelete, noscript etc.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

 I've just spent an annoyingly long time trying to do something that turned out to be really easy, it was just finding out what to do that made it seem hard.
 The issue of where search results open is completely ignored in the help pages, judging from the number of questions in Support on the issue, that appears to be something of an oversight. As does not displaying the date questions were posted, reading about what applies in an old verion of Ff may not do so in the current one, it didn't in my case.
 I wanted to know how to make the search results from Google on the search bar, open in a new tab, as opposed to the same tab, the current default setting. All it takes is changing the value of: browser.link.open_newwindow, from false to true in about:config.
 Simple to do, finding out that's what you have to do, isn't. 
 I thought I'd suggest that you might consider addressing this matter, I'm sure it would be welcomed by at least some users.
 Anyway, thank you for a great browser.

Remember search and form history. This setting always resets to false after the latest two FireFox updates and I need to enable it again.

After logging out and back in the setting is disabled again. I've removed all plugins and extensions I've added and the issue persists.

I've tried Places Database : Verify Integrity but the issue persists on very Restart or loggin. In the past I've even removed FireFox with a 3rd party uninstaller to remove all remnants of FF but, as a very long term user of FF (right from the early Win XP days), this issue pops up from time to time and it's really starting to become extremely annoying.

Apart from Refreshing FF or the total nuke and reinstall option, what else can be done to stop this issue?

Thanks.

I really want to keep all my tabs and have this setting on but its disabled. I was configurating this pc via "privasy.sexy" scripts and my best guess is that "disable telemetry" setting which you can see on second screenshot is the cause. But maybe you are familiar with this situaton and know th real reason.

I know the sc i provided are in polish but above the disabled startup settings there is an information that another organisation is in charge of my browser.

Thanks for your work and let me know if there are any fxes. ^^

Hello there!

I am a web developer and recently we built a website using wordpress. Specifically in this page https://jaotc.eu/jatc-participants/jatc-participants-jatc2/ there is an issue with the participants not showing/loading. I exclusively use Firefox for development and had no issues so far but this problem only exists in Firefox. I tried edge and chrome and the page works fine.

Maybe it has to do with some kind of compatibility with the wordpress theme or wordpress itself. If you would like to check it out and see if there is a general fix that has to be applied.

Thank you in advance!
