I've moved my Firefox profile to a custom location (in My Documents). When I run a backup, I want to exclude files that can easily be regenerated when the profile is restored on another system. So far, my exclusion list is as follows:

D:\Documents\My Documents\Firefox\OfflineCache\*

D:\Documents\My Documents\Firefox\cache2\*

D:\Documents\My Documents\Firefox\minidumps\*

D:\Documents\My Documents\Firefox\safebrowsing\*

D:\Documents\My Documents\Firefox\storage\temporary\*

D:\Documents\My Documents\Firefox\parent.lock

Is this a safe list?

Are there additional folders that can safely be excluded? Keeping logins active upon restore is preferable (so keeping cookies, etc. is preferable).

Edit: The list above is safe, and when I tested the restore it works fine. The accepted answer lists some more folders that can be excluded, which I haven't yet tested but looking through them they look correct.

I was surprised to be told by Firefox that https://123.hp.com had a potential security risk. That site is linked to from HP webpage https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c01796879.

How does Firefox determine that a webpage has a security risk?

Some googling indicates that it may be security certificates. Since the organization is reputable, does that diminish the risk of following the link anyway?

There are times when I am traveling that I am out of range of any wi-fi and I have to use my data plan to access websites. Many websites have videos that play automatically. I have seen methods to block auto play. My question is, are these blocked from using my data or do they download to firefox but just don't get played? If the latter, is there some way to block the use of my data?

to move tabs to bottom.

It never fails. While I am working I keep getting that irritating Notification over-and-over that there is an update. After I quit working I cannot find a way to do the update. What is Mozilla doing? Why do we no longer have control to do Updates Manually? When we want to. Not have them shoved into our face over-and-over? I would love to at least have the option to not have these irritating Notifications. Especially since Mozilla seems to do constant updates. Almost weekly. Thanks

I have logins saved on various sites but recently Firefox has starting offering logins for sites that aren't the one I'm trying to log into. Because I have quite a few logins saved this can result in getting a dropdown of dozens of 'suggested' logins and finding the one in the list that's the actual login for the site I'm visiting is a bit of pain. How can I set this so that Firefox will only show me logins for the site I'm currently visiting the way it used to?

When closing tabs by clicking it's own "close cross/button" I often get a popup sayin I'm about to close x many tabs. If I don't click the popup firefox closes also tabs that I haven't clicked to close (because I want them to remain open). If I don't clikck the popup, the tabs that get closed seem to be ones that I've opened through a tab that I do want to close.

As you can guess, this is highly frustrating. I have loads of tabs open at any given time and I'm using Tree Style Tabs to keep them a bit more organized. I haven't found anyone else with this problem so could it be causing this behaviour?

I have serveral accoutinfos (username, password) saved in firefox. Normally, when wanting to login on one of these websites, firefox gave me only the one fitting login, wich was good. Since 2-3 months I also get the fitting one and several other sites displayed as possible logins. These Websites have nothing to to with the website I want to login to. Not even the username / email address etc. are the same. In the attached scrrenshot, only the first two entries are for this very website. The rest does not make any sense.

This is really annoying. Is there a configuration to disable this which I haven't found yet ?

Okay, so before, when I loaded up 100+ Youtube videos, they stayed when switching tabs - no autoplay. Suddenly they decide to autoplay when switching tabs - note, I've not done anything to my settings or plugins. Fair enough, maybe you changed something (which you often do, without informing). So I check the options. It was on "Block audio", which obviously didn't work, so I tried "Block Audio and Video" - which WORKS, but now both the video is paused (which I want) AND the audio is set to mute (which I DON'T want) - so... what does it take to have Youtube wait for a click to start playing a video loaded in a background tab, but KEEP AUDIO ACTIVE, so I don't also have to unmute the damn video?
