Hi, Apart from some references I had found going back up to 10 years, I cant find anything about making Firefox run completely from a usb stick.. I have used an appimage to install it on a usb, BUT it still creates a folder with the profile in the Home directory on the PC hard drive.. Can you please give me some idea of how I can move the folder location from the hard drive and have everything pointed to the usb.. I have used the profile manager to create a new profile based on the USB, and then deleted the Mozilla folder on the PC hard drive, but that breaks FF. So obviously even though it is residing and running from the usb, it is referring to the hard drive for something.. Running Ubuntu 20.04 David B

I have three devices, a desk top, a laptop and an iPad. The desktop is running a very outdated version of Firefox which means it is not compatable just to update it. The forum tried to help me with this a while back, but it was deemed not to be possible, and the best way would have been to do a fresh new install, but there was noway to save log-ins/passwords bookmarks. My devices all have the Firefox sync and that is so far working well. My question is, if I dragged my PC's Firefox into the present by performing a fresh new install, would my synced items install ok....after invoking the Sync feature on the new install. Logic tells me this should be so, as it worked ok with the new iPad, but I know from experience that logic doesn't always come into play. (Windows7) Many thanks

Firefox recently updated automatically and when i went into the browser all my bookmarks are gone. i have tried restoring them from the most recent back up and they still don't load. i searched the blogs and go thru the troubleshooting options with no luck. this is very frustrating as i had tons of sites i don't visit often saved in the bookmarks which are not gone.

any assistance or guidance on how to get these back is appreciated.

Dear all,

I cannot install any add-on as Firefox, provides me (instead "+ Add to Firefox") a button:

"Only with Firefox - Get Firefox Now" (see attached image).

I have Firefox version 80.0.1 (64-bit) installed.

Any idea how to get this sorted out? Would de- and re-installation of Firefox work?

Best!

Some websites report that I have an old outdated version of firefox. But this is not true. I always use the latest version in 64bit under Windows 7. One of these websites says I use Firefox 57.

I cannot get access to these sites. What may be the reason? I read this could be an outdated version of wordpress that these websites are using.

When I click on "show details" below, it also reports Firefox 57 but it is 76.0.1. What's wrong?

Background: I just had to rebuild my Linux system partition from backup.

After doing this I discovered that although most websites behave perfectly with Firefox, there is one website which now never appears in the history though I have visited the pages with no problem.

This is a problem because I use the change in color of links to the website to keep track of which pages I have visited. I have looked to see if Firefox has a list of sites which are not tracked but have been unable to find it.

PS, after the restore all my old history was restored including visits to the website which is now causing a problem.

First, I just had a major system crash, had to re-install Linux Mint and through my own stupidity, relied on the wrong backups for my firefox configuration. So I lost my Firefox 52 install with all of my extensions (that still worked). Now, I'm running v. 57 Quantum, and a few things aren't working correctly.

First, the MAJOR problem: when I open a link from a bookmark, it's clobbering an existing tab that I was using (that's why it was open, obviously). That is completely unsat and can not be allowed to continue. How do I correct this? I can't find the option under settings-->tabs to fix this problem.

Second issue (major annoyance): I can no longer create a bookmark directly in a bookmark folder on the bookmark toolbar. I used to be able to open that bookmark folder, and the first option was to bookmark the currently open tab. That option has vanished, and i use that all the time. How do I restore that?

Actually, one more issue: I have two tabs that are pinned and are supposed to be protected (i.e., nothing can clobber them, and I can't close them without deliberately turning the protection off (context menu right-clicking on tab). I need that back, because for some reason, firefox thinks it's ok to open a bookmark in those tabs, too, when it most definitely is NOT ok.

Thanks, Jim Graham
