I recently installed windows on a new solid state hard drive, and did a fresh install of firefox, but I forgot to manually backup my bookmarks. The old install is still on the old windows hard drive, is there a way for me to move them onto the new install? I'd prefer to not have to rebuild the whole list from scratch!

I thought I had turned off autocompletion for logins, but when I log into websites, the username suggestion box still pops up. This is very annoying. See attached image for an example (edited to hide my actual username for that site). What do I need to change to get rid of this?

BE NICE? Are you kidding me? I have asked for help on this issue NUMEROUS times and NO ONE has ever responded to this problem. I'm Past Being Nice!

DO YOU SEE THE INFORMATION ATTACHED? It is WRONG and has been WRONG for months and months, but no one wants to address the issue. Most of you simply IGNORE this information and I'm guessing you don't know how to correct it.

First of all, I DO NOT have Windows 8, I've never had Windows 8 or any derivation of Windows 8 on this PC or any other ELECTRONIC device I have now or in the past, EVER! One day I turned on my PC checked for updates and to my HORROR this is what I found.

The latest information you have assigned to me is THUNDERBIRD, DON'T know what it is or why I have it listed as something I use, I Don't.

WHAT version are we on anyway????????????

Firefox is the WORST browser I have EVER used. Whenever I have a problem you respond with some ridiculous IT jargon and I'm supposed to fix it and there are so many problems I can't even begin to count them. YOU EXPECT EVERYONE to know how to program, understand programming jargon, and simply fix YOUR problems. What you need is a SUPPORT phone number for those of us who are not as SMART as you. Yeah, yeah I know your all volunteers, MAYBE it's time you hired people who know what they are doing and can speak to people in a language that is UNDERSTANDABLE to most of us in the REAL WORLD!!!!!!

Fix this problem. I want it fixed, not by ME by YOU folks at Firefox before I transfer all of my files to my new PC.

OH, I know EXACTLY what your response is going to be; You're going to waste my time with a million questions that have NOTHING to do with anything, then you'll want me to try this or that or the other thing while you CROSS YOUR FINGERS and hope that I can fix it! DO NOT DO THAT, or you will simply IGNORE my question which is what MOST EVERYONE in your organization does. REALLY, they simply pretend I haven't asked this question.

GET with the program and figure out HOW TO SERVE regular everyday people who use your product. I've read too many articles about problems that you continue to have without resolution, and the numbers of people leaving FIREFOX.

I WOULD HAVE to say, YOU HAVE A PROBLEM! I don't care if you use volunteers or not, what I care about is communication that makes sense to me, NOT to you. When I read your articles that are supposed to CLEAR up the issue and then you name those volunteers who wrote the article, am I impressed? Only in the sense of the stupidity of your idea of HELP!

STOP WITH YOUR educated guesses about my BROWSER, this is just another way of AVOIDANCE FOR YOU! If NO ONE in your organization will even address this issue you couldn't possibly know ANYTHING!

Most Sincerely, Rhonda Caywood

I am a game developer. I work about 12 hours a day, in Chrome. It is my main browser. When I installed firefox, I was asked to "import" cookies and such. I did. Which has been a terrible headache. All of the bookmarks and everything from Chrome came with it, which I already had in firefox, since I've had it for years. But, I thought since this is a brand new computer that I needed to do that. Fast-forward a couple of weeks and now EVERY time I open up firefox, all 10 million history links are in history.

I use firefox to unwind and watch movies. I don't want 10 million links to work in front of where I left off in binge watching Seinfeld.

I've tried everything and followed instructions and STILL, all history from Chrome shows up in firefox. It is infuriating. AND uninstalling and reinstalling did nothing. The setting is already in the account to import from Chrome to firefox. I've removed addons and extensions as well. Nothing has worked.

I just installed Firefox on a new Windows 11 desktop computer. I ported my profiles over and it appears everything came over EXCEPT: - Themes aren't working. I've tried switching them and they still don't display. The menu bar is black w/white letters; the toolbar is gray with white icons/letters. - My extension icons are there...sort of. If I hover over them I can see the tool tip but the icon doesn't appear on the toolbar which is light gray in color. I can live without the themes if I have to. Not so much the invisible extension icons. Any suggestions as to how I can get them to appear as they do on my Windows 10 desktop? Screen cap below. Cursor is hovered over the Undo Close Tab extension icon but where's the icon? Any suggestions as to how to troubleshoot this will be appreciated!!

Tabs, history, bookmarks, basicly anything and everything that was crucial are gone, seemingly after recent update. I had similar problem a couple of month ago and didn't find clear solution back then, but it all got sorted out maybe in couple of days (probably with next update or something?). Well who would've thought i would get screwed like that a second time.

So i can't tell for sure whats caused it or how it got fixed. What i manged to figure out both times this happend is that somehow i have 2 versions of Firefox Profiles judgin by the dates of the cursed updates. So i guess my stuff is still there but i can't acces it.

Also worth mentioning is that both times i've got screwed by updates, my FF shortcuts from Quick Acces pannel stoped working and i needed to drag'n'drop em all over again.

Im at totall loss here, i know the info i've provided is almost nonexistant but if anyone knows whats up i would be greatly apreciative if you could tell how do i fix this and prevent it from happening in the future.

I do my Firefox updates manually. I am currently using version 108.0.2. When I click on "about", it says I should "Update to Partner Removal". It usually tells me to update to the next version that is available. What is Partner Removal? Is it a legitimate update? I can't find anything on the website regarding this. Why does it not tell me to update to version 109?

Thank you for your help.

Hi, can you help? I can't access morphy richards website from my phone and my pc through Firefox. I can access it through Microsoft Edge on my pc and my Samsung Internet app on my phone but not through my Firefox app or windows 11 Pro desktop pc. I get this message on my pc

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site. We can’t connect to the server at www.morphyrichards.com. If you entered the right address, you can: Try again later Check your network connection Check that Firefox has permission to access the web you might be connected but behind a firewall

and this message on my phone through the Firefox app

Address Not Found. The browser could not find the host server for the provided address. Check the address for typing errors such as ww.example.com instead of www.example.com.

If you are unable to load any pages, check your device’s data or Wi-Fi connection. 

Steps I have taken is clearing data, history and cache on pc, turning off mcafee firewall. I use my pc through a wired Internet connection and my phone through Wi-Fi and data and it's the same on both I can't access the website. Like I mentioned I can access it no problems through Microsoft Edge on my pc and Samsung Internet app on my phone so I have now pinpointed it to Mozilla Firefox being the issue, also this is the only website I have issues with. Please can you help? Regards, Steve

Hello there; I had installed the "savefrom.net" extension. This extension automatically generated the website address to the "bookmarks toolbar". I deleted the extension and deleted the shortcut as well. But when the bookmarked website shortcut "firefox" is closed and reopened, it adds itself to the bookmarks toolbar again. No matter what I did, it didn't work. I don't want to delete Firefox completely and reinstall it. Because there are too many shortcuts and data that I use all the time. How do you think I can solve this problem?

Using FF 108.0.2 (64-bit) in Debian 11 Linux,I need to view http://www3.winsystem.org/monitor/webmonitor.php but my new laptop is very high resolution. I can control the text size with Ctrl+ but the background gif image of a small window with bogus scrollbar needs to be made larger somehow so that the white text can be read against the black portion of the image.

Is there some way to enlarge the gif image, please?
