There are a million support articles on this and other sites that show all the steps to importing your passwords from Chrome to Firefox, and they usually include a screenshot that is identical to the one I've included, except for they also have a box you can check to import passwords. I successfully imported my cookies, browsing history, and bookmarks, but there was no passwords box for me to check and I haven't been able to import my passwords. Why is it that option not showing up for me?

after system update on macbook pro (os 10.15.4) the firefox icon disappeared on the dock requiring me to sign in again with a change in password after which I discovered that all previous bookmarks were GONE! I do have the browser installed on a desktop which seems to have retained my old bookmarks. Any suggestions on retrieving previous bookmarks links and their associated login/passwords , or transferring my bookmarks from desktop to my macbook?

I've been a loyal Firefox user for many years. I've never given up on FF regardless the compatibility, stability and performance issues it had. I trusted my 'pal' Firefox ... until recently when i noticed it silently removed a non-mainstream news site from the Top Site list. That broke my heart ...

The question is, can you explain yourself?

What can I do to compensate for the terrible spell check ability of Firefox/Thunderbird

I use mostly Chrome browser but it's such a resource, memory and storage hog I've been using FF more. However, while spell check technically works, it's simply terrible and frustrating to use. With Chrome, I hardly had to add words to my dictionary while with FF/TB many essential basic words are flagged.

I read some other posts where FF flags most words, that's not my gripe. The dictionary is pathetic. I can't even find any add-ons/extensions that provide a greater vocabulary.

Are there some tips and tricks besides adding words one can use here?

Even though bookmarked sites appear with their favicons, no favicon is displayed for any site in Firefox and the other browsers I use. Even new bookmarks I continue adding continue to display the corresponding favicon, but none next to the website address. .

June 5, 2020 I too, have enjoyed The Case of the Missing Google Search Box, a Nancy Drew novel, I believe.

With Firefox open, click the Options, that upper right logically opaque set of stacked lines. In Options, choose Home.

On the Home page, Check the unchecked box, Firefox Home Content->Web Search

Update 68.9.0 was doing odd things to my W 7 computer, it even shut off altogether. I did a system restore back to 68.8.0, it was the only program affected, and it is fine now, but will hold off updating until I find out more. There is no new video card driver available for this computer, and I have Hardware Acceleration turned off.

Hello,

I have a question about updating Firefox on Windows. Is there a command that tells the MozillaMaintenance Service (or Updater.exe) to check for updates and if there is a new update, to install it?

When Firefox is started, Firefox also checks for updates automatically or when the user goes to Help -> About Firefox. And that's exactly what I want to start with just one command. Is that possible?

Thanks a lot.

This has happened twice by now. I have recently enabled 2FA on my account using Aegis, and the next time I logged on, it didn't ask me for a code and it seems as if I never activated it. Set it up again and the same issue pops up. Is anyone having this issue as well?

Using the browser ver. 77.0.1 (64-bit) on a Windows 10 laptop.

Hi,

I am trying to access oracle apps URL from firefox. Getting follwing error.

In order to access this application, you must install the J2SE Plugin version 1.5.0_10. To install this plugin, click here to download the oaj2se.exe executable. Once the download is complete, double-click the oaj2se.exe file to install the plugin. You will be prompted to restart your browser when the installation is complete.

I have installed j2se but still getting the same issue. Please help me on resolving the issue.

Regards, CG

Many times lately, when i get a reply to an email I've sent, i can't read the reply. I'm on a mac book pro. I just tried clearing history for the last hour but that didn't help.

I can only read it if i go to Google Chrome .

And on GC, after being there a few minutes, all of a sudden i see it has changed to " site not secure". 

Thought it was because i was on wifi but it happens even NOT on wifi.

I have locked xpinstall.enabled to false.

I wonder if this will prevent extension updates?

I hope not, because if it does, it will result in old extension versions which might have security issues.

Many users lock this property to avoid inexperienced users installing extensions.

In the example at enabled it seems that it blocks the function startSoftwareUpdate. And it's plain to see, that the function contains the word "update".
