I am using Firefox since 14 years, and all the time it has been my favourite Internet Browser and I advised every friend of mine to choose this internet browser. But I am afraid it's gonna change soon.
I lost my laptop, it was stolen.
I store my history from a couple of years, bookmarks, saved passwords.
I had a backup by MozBackup on May 2019.
On December I copied a profile as it was written in your guides: (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles)
I copied everything from:
I hadn't investigate what is inside. And after i bought a new laptop I had many problems with Firefox, can someone explain me please:
1. I couldn't login to Sync, due i hadn't remembered my password - ok its my fault, but when i wanted to reset i would lose all my data?! Why is that? I can understand due to its encrypted but... Luckly after some combination i recovered my password.
2. So i copied my profile as it was written in your guide, and i hadn't investigate what is inside. Now when i tried to copy my whole profile its not working, why? Well, i checked and there were no file: places.sqlite . I have no clue why, so my backup from December is lost.
3. You informed people about Syncing, why there is nowhere information that you syncing history, yes, but only 2 months??!! You claim that we will have bookmarks, saved passwords, cache and history yes thats true, but history for only 8 weeks..... I understand that it has many bytes to store, but it should be somewhere information about it!
If i would knew that i would be more prepared for lost, and did more often proper backup by MozBackup.
I feel now very frustrated about this situation, and first time after 14 years I'm very, very disappointed with Firefox.
Can someone explain me please, why is that?
Thank you for reply!
