Ver. 96.0.1-Last night Firefox updated to ver. 96.0.1. Now all of my profile information is missing. That included bookmarks, history and most importantly, MY SAVED PASSWORDS AND LOGIN INFORMATION! Is there any way to recover this information and put things right again. I cannot access some of my financial information let alone enter any websites that require a login? HELP!

I downloaded Firefox on my Chromebook using the instructions found here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/run-firefox-chromeos However, I have not been able to update it since. It says updates are disabled in Firefox itself, and I have not been able to fine what files I need to update via Terminal to get the most current version. (I have been able to update other files through Terminal). Can someone please point me in the direction of how to update Firefox if installed in the manner described in the link?

Been desperately trying to get Firefox to run on my Acer Chromebook 315 through Linux. The app store version just isn't cutting it. I followed these instructions below as best as I could installing linux and flatpack. I even ran a power wash and tried again.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/run-firefox-chromeos

The icon comes up in my dash, but is gray and endlessly loading. Not sure what else I can do. I'm pretty my system is compatible. Is there another way? Am I missing something?

Thank you,

A

I received a message to upgrade Firefox on my 2011 iMac. When I tried to do that I was told that it could not be installed. Also happening is that I get an error message "Secure Connection Failed" when I try to access some sites (but not all) with Firefox. I can access these sites with Safari.

Has my 2011 computer (like yours truly!) reached a point where it can no longer be upgraded? Any help/insight would be appreciated!

Hi I'm running a Mac - macOS Monterey 12.1 (21C52) and using Firefox 96.0.2 (64-bit).

Yesterday I wiped my Mac and set it up as brand new. I downloaded my saved Bookmarks and Passwords to Safari and then tried to add my Bookmarks and Passwords to Firefox but the option to import "Other Data" is not showing (see attachment).

Anyone know why this is specifically not showing up regardless of whether I try and import from Safari or Chrome?
