Norton just told me that Firefox downloader downloaded bugs in both their updates and patches! My computer HAD started having problems a few days ago that I noticed (hanging up on the lock screen, not letting me sign in). Then Norton found the bugs. Said they were new but high risk. What's going on???

I'm trying to use firefox on linux (no gui). I must use microsoft SSO to login our website. So i copied the profile (the folder Mozilla) from windows to linux. It was good to login automatically and implicitly on linux (CentOS6). But after 2-4 hours, it couldn't login any more. I have to login manually on windows again, and then copy the file webappsstore.sqlite to the profile folder on linux. How can I make it can login on linux for a long time without copying a new webappsstore.sqlite to linux?

I have quite a few tabs open in Firefox on an old iMac that I keep open for research purposes. I do this instead of bookmark to save having to reopen them every time. When I migrate the old iMac to a new one, will Firefox remember those tabs and reopen them upon launch?

2020-09-10 - I have had issues with bookmark favicons not working for about 3 or 4 years, completely installing and uninstalling fire-fox many, many times, using different computers, always the latest version of Windows 10, using fire-fox sync, using 3rd party bookmark managers -

Often when importing bookmarks, there is no favicon, and I need to open every bookmark to load the favicon

Can you please allow favicons to work normally in fire-fox?
