Hi, I have two computers (call them A and B) and want to sync, at least bookmarks preferences and logins... BUT for the first "sync" operation, I want A to OVERWRITE the data on B (not MERGE) ... and thereafter sync normally.

How can I do this?

Many thanks in advance

I use Win10. I have an updated Firefox browser. I have deleted cookies and cleared the cache. I have restarted multiple times. Chase.com will NOT work with Firefox. I get a page that says the browser has to be updated to above version 76. and mine is 96.0.3 I did indeed follow their link to download and do the update even thought I knew I had the most recent update, and it worked. UNTIL...I closed the browser and tried to login again.

I contacted Chase for online support. The online "specialist" who was also the supervisor (?) at Chase has told me Chase is no longer compatible with Firefox. This makes NO sense to me. She insisted this was the case. I felt she didn't want to assist in hunting down the issue.

Does anyone else have a problem with the Chase.com website??

HELLO, Web page seems un-secure. Once open hamburg menu allows drop down and anyone can get my info. I ahd to also remove check mark for master password since annoying. Followed steps to remove and reset master PW but still keep asking every time logged on. References to my ESET that may be the cause. This was never a problem once registered few years back. So why cant I use Firefox to search without it having access to my private info. I should only need to access this when I need. So in the drop down hamburg menu if I go to Privacy and security that is where you should ask for PW or security question. So that you must have a PW to go into security would make sense to me. Other wise you are allowing anyone that may be using my computer and your web page to access my account, SO PLEASE DO NOT REPLY THAT the master password is the way to set this since it does not work properly. Even if I did use master this site is open to anyone. So it seems to be insecure and the web master should change the drop down to offer a PW when in the security and password tab, so that way it a second level pf protection. HOPE TO HEAR BACK and not just get a reply to see the Help section.Thanks Joseph Jan 26 ,2022

I am on site 1 (site1.net) in a video call. In the permissions pop-up of the FF browser it shows me that cross-site cookies are allowed for site 2 (yetanothersite.com). See the screenshot attached. Both sites are totally unrelated and have no link whatsoever. I visited site 2 once many months or a year ago. To my understanding it is very odd, that there is a permission for cross-site cookies from site 2 on site 1. This permission is not set on any other site. How could this permission have been set up, was it me, is this a bug? How come there is a permission for site 2 on site 1 while they have no interrelation? I have searched through the cookies.sqlite DB and found nothing irregular. The privacy / tracking settings are set to the "standard" choice. What am I missing here?

The system is Windows 11 with current FF 96.x.

When I try to load pages I get the following message on most searches with the message by the tab indicating it is not secure:

   An error occurred during a connection to www.google.com. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

I am using DuckDuckGo and tried switching to StartPage but, get the same result. This started more frequently after the last upgrade. Try duluthtrading.com to see if you get the same result.

Why is the connection through Google? How do I get back to being able to use Firefox as my default without so many issues?

I have reset Firefox, uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, and set everything to default numerous times.

Thank you for any help you can provide.

I am trying to transfer my firefox bookmarks from my old computer's hard drive to my new computer. they are both fairly current laptops, and i believe both are on windows 10 (the new one is on, i think, whatever the newest version of windows is). I cannot turn on my old computer, so I can't export the bookmarks, but the hard drive is fully functional. The problem is, I can't find where the bookmarks are located. I have tried looking through the files, I have "show hidden files" on, I have tried manually searching for "places.sqlite" and I have tried doing the %APPDATA% thing. I can see other folders on the hard drive very easily, so it shouldn't be the fault of the hard drive. If you know how I am able to find the files, please go through it step-by-step; I'm not proficient in computer things, and something that may seem very obvious and instinctive to you may be what I'm messing up on.

I am using Firefox 96.0 running on Ubuntu 20.04. The procedure described on this site to create a desktop shortcut for a website (click on padlock, drag it to the desktop and release) does not work. A grayed image of the URL being dragged moves onto the desktop when dragged, but when the mouse button is released that grayed image springs back to the URL field.

I also tried the alternate procedure i.e. drag a shortcut from the Bookmarks menu onto the desktop. The same failure sequence as described above occurred.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Does anyone know how to restore them? Please see attached image. Thank you.
