A firefox support article told me to reinstall firefox from snap on ubuntu, without mentioning anything about the profile, settings, and bookmarks. Now everything is gone.

Is there any way to recover my local profile?

I don't think it was synced properly with my other devices

Hi folks,

I'd like to obtain some clarity on provenance aspects of Firefox released as a Flatpak.

I see in this article that one of the options is to use flatpak package: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/install-firefox-linux

Is this article produced / reviewed by mozilla? Is flatpak an officially trusted, backed by mozilla, means of installing firefox on a system?

On flathub one can observe the "Verified" seal which indicates that such package is developed and maintained by original package developers (in case Mozilla). One can also observe in multiple forums here and there that mozilla is the one that builds and maintain this package.

Though a seal is nice, and users opinions are ok, it would be good to have artifacts that would evidence better this relationship. Also, would be good to have this officially stated in mozilla's website, under "Download options and other languages" section, something like "you can also safely install firefox through the flatpak package available on flathub which is developed / maintained / signed by mozilla itself".

Or maybe all of this information is around and i am just not able to link it together.

Thanks

I'm using Ubuntu 24.04 and just reinstalled for unrelated reasons. I'm trying to copy my Firefox profile over from my backup to the new installation.

I used the Ubuntu Snap store to install Firefox and put my old profile in -- this is the one that I was using on my previous Ubuntu 24.04 installation just a couple days ago -- and everything seems fine, but I do see this error message:

[ERROR error_support::handling] suggest-unexpected: Error opening database: Incompatible database version: 18

It gets printed when I type things in the search bar, so it seems related to some sqlite database related to history and autocompletion.

Is there a way to fix this? I'm fine with just deleting it, so long as the other parts of the profile remain.

(This is a strange error, since after all I was using the exact same setup -- Firefox on Ubuntu 24.04, installed via snap -- just a couple days ago, and it was, as far as I know, up-to-date.)

For a week or better I have been unable to download anything through my Firefox browser, I have refreshed and uninstalled Firefox (I had to reinstall through another browser) in an attempt to fix this issue to no avail. I cannot download from verified sites, nor am I able to download Firefox's own extensions or themes (when I attempt I get an error telling me to check my connection, screenshot included).

I would like to be able to use Firefox normally again, with the ability to download files and install my extensions restored.

So, I installed a new hard drive about a week ago and while re-installing things I also re-installed the Firefox Browser 64- bit. Strangely, it seems like the files did not install itself in the right areas or the files installed did not install themself in the right or normal places. It does work, but for some reason I don't see it's program files? Is this normal or something that happens?

Anyways, I've backed-up my bookmarks, and I am going to uninstall it, re-boot, and re-install it and see what happens I guess. Or should I uninstall Firefox and its Profile Folders also, etc, and than re-install it?

Tēnā koutou (Hello everyone),

I deleted Firefox to re-install it after playing with profiles and that not working how I wanted it to (yet). I uninstalled the app from the applications and the library on my Mac and reinstalled Firefox. Now when I open Firefox it says that it's up and running but no windows actually open up for me. I have uninstalled and reinstalled it again and it still won't open windows. I have to force quit Firefox as nothing shows up in my top tool bar to even show Firefox as open.

How can I get Firefox to actually install and be functioning on my computer again?

Running (as of an hour ago) macOS 14.5 (was using previous up to date OS when I installed Firefox again.

TIA
